a terrible blight on our fine country
The paying football players topic has been pretty hot lately. The one story that keeps being mentioned that seems to "grind my old man gears" is the old we didn't have enough money to scrounge up a pizza on a Saturday night. I don't know so I'm asking for clarification if anybody has some insight on what do these kids get to eat?
Here is what I know from watching and reading about Michigan for 40 years. I know Barwis would give them chocolate milk, Bo would give them cookies, when they go to the bowl games they eat at the nicest restraunts. I see videos of trainig table and it appears they are eating some of the best catered food you can find. It seems like they get better food than 99% of the students usually can treat themselves to.
What I don't know is how many meals a day are provided to them? Do they have access to food all year round? Is it really as good a quality as it appears?
Happy April Fools Day board! I come to you for help instead of folly on this day. My brother recently graduated from Grad school at U of M. Him and I are both die-hard, life long fans. As most of you know today was the release of the 2 game ticket packages for the 2011 season, that alumni association members get. We originally had wanted to go to the ND and SDSU games, due to ND being the first ever night game. However, his wife is a PSU fan and he will be attending the PSU v. Alabama game the very weekend of the ND game, so that package is off the table. We are left with deciding, between Western (the opener) and Nebraska or Eastern and OSU. We are leaning towards the Nebraska/Western package, but we need some help from the board. Any thoughts? Input?
Edit: Called my brother to clarify, tickets aren't actually on sale, he just got the email about the 2 game packages he can choose from when they are on sale. My bad, this is not in anyway meant to be an April Fools joke. But, we stll need help deciding which one we should pick.
Neg away :P
Just read on espn. However I'm not surehow to link to the page. It's locked or something. It says his bac was more than 3 times the legal limit and he will probably face some jail time.
We all should know what the NCAA Death Penalty is and if you don't here you go. The question I ask you all is do you think that the NCAA will ever give out the Death Penalty again? I know some of you have voiced your opinions on this saying no because of the way it devastated SMU. I used to agree with this sentiment.
I used to agree until all of these different allegations came out about upwards of half a dozen schools cheating in some capacity. I then think back to one the primary reasons they gave out the death penalty in the first place. The cheating was so rampant and out of control that they needed to make an example out of a school to get it under control. I still think it is highly unlikely but not as implausable as before. But after what they gave to USC I am starting to think they would at least put it on the table as a legitimate option.
Auburn and OSU would be the prime canidates with the 'Lack of Institutional Control' ruling. But what do you guys think? Yes, no, maybe?
I've been wondering for a while now how it came to be that people started calling Greg Robinson "GERG". I asked this question in the other GERG thread and didn't get a satisfactory answer. The Google has not helped me either. This doesn't appear to be unique to the Michigan fan base which makes me think it started during one of his previous coaching gigs. Can someone help shed some light on this please?
