TO THE HOT TAKE CANNON
Commence chest beating, talks of "betting the mortgage", "easy money", and general over analyzing. One of the few shreds of football stuff until August!
Personally think that is pretty generous - the home team usually gets 3 pts so it's basically saying the teams are a wash on a neutral field. Based on the last meeting in the Big House, that's already a big improvement! I was thinking it would be more like 5.5 pts but UM is obviously a name team that gets a lot of money thrown at it. Whittingham has lost some staff from last year but Utah is generally a very sound team full of well coached 3 star mafia and quite tough at home - beat Rose Bowl Stanford even in a down year (2013).
Other fun lines - Minnesota is a 19.5 home dog vs TCU in their rematch from last year - TCU should be ranked top 3 in most polls going into the year. Wisconsin is a 12.5 home dog v Alabama - wait did no one watch the Big 10 domination of the bowl season? Notre Dame is favored by 12.5 at home v Texas. OSU is a whopping 20.5 favorite on the road vs VATech - man that's a lot of points in the first game of the year, on the road, vs a team that usually presents a good defense. Seems like best bet to take the points.

Mark Richt on Jim Harbaugh's camp invitation to all coaches: “I don’t know how many guys wanna go up there and freeze their tail off."— Seth Emerson (@SethEmerson) April 28, 2015
89 year old Bryan Sperry, a World War II vet and a former member of the Kansas Football team from the 1948 Orange bowl team, got to score a touchdown in Kansas' alumni game. Thought it was a really great gesture in part of the Jayhawks.
Probably overdue, but interesting nonetheless. Shouldn't impact much, as most taxable revenue runs through the member clubs. Mostly a PR move and leverage play against Congress re: concussion, domestic violence, etc.
This has been my first post. Neat.
Has anyone here successfully sold season tickets through StubHub this year? Was it quick?
I'm planning on posting my 2 season tickets... Section 15, Row 64... shortly. Looks as though the cheapest is $800 per ticket. I would plan to undercut that price significantly, since I'm not looking to make a huge profit.
PS... I know this isn't the place, but if you are interested in mine, let me know. I would much rather sell to someone on the board than a random person on StubHub.
Clark has talked with Coach Harbaugh about how to avoid "problematic" situations in the future. The article has a lot of background info, but does include some new information from Clark himself. He seems to be pretty contrite.
I wish him well in life.
