The Hello Post for Mr. Loszewki!, The USA soccer team's advancement, recent recruiting news seeming more normal for a Michigan fan, the Tiger's righting the ship, and my weekend cycling trip Up North with the girlfriend (with maybe a couple flycasts interspersed). I'm a beer guy, but I think a G&T will be appropriate tonight upon our arrival in Grayling.
MGoGolfers out there,
I am going to be coming back to Ann Arbor (for the first time in a decade and a half) over the 4th of July weekend. I am planning on playing the UMGC early on Saturday, July 5th and as of yet am a single. If anyone is in town then, can get away, and wants to play $100 1-Downs (J/K), let me know I'd love the company.
I am sure most you know that the UMGC was designed by the legendary Alister MacKenzie whose designed include: Crystal Downs, Royal Melbourn (West), Pasatiempo, and a little course called Augusta National. The UMGC has been called a "Hidden Jewel" by golf writers and to my mind is one of the greatest in-town courses in the world.
I spoke with the shop and they said Saturday is wide open, so if we get more than 4 we can have a few groups of MGoGolfers should we need to.
Are we allowed to put our personal emails on a post?
Anyway, drop me a line if you're interested.
I had to share this because I literally laughed out loud. Delany starts rambling about how there is no arose Bowl if you pay players. Which made no sense.
Then he says the idea of paying players goes against the entire college experience and he couldn't see league members agreeing to it. If some did, he said, they likely would be kicked out of the conference because the move would create an imbalance among schools that could not be resolved.
That was paragraph number two. I stopped reading to share after that because it makes NO sense. Delany's is one of those guys who talks really confident and with scare scenarios but has no clue what he's actually saying. But he's Jim Delany and he sounds so confident that you almost believe him until you actually listen to what he said.
Think about that paragraph, then think about which teams in the B1G can afford to pay players. Do you REALLY think Michigan and Ohio State are ever going to be voted out of the league? Hell no. You take e top half of the schools in the B1G in terms of profit and revenue for the league and kick them out and you're left with a better version of the MAC.
I'm not for paying players...but THIS is the man leading our conference.
