No. It's not like they dragged in Lalas from 1994 to pontificate on every innane topic that pops into his head.
Oh, wait . . . .

Just a joke. I would have said Ypsi if it was south of Ann Arbor.
I have no idea where he went.

That's why I'm such an admirer of Ole Miss. They get their money's worth.

I will root for Michigan State.
It's good for us and Harbaugh's national recruiting strategy to have the Big Ten East be thought of in the same light as the SEC West - a glamour destination division.
Besides, we have our big boy pants on now. We'll take care of Sparty ourselves. We don't need Donald Duck to do it for us.

Wow, you're right. I only needed one second.

Whatever gets him here. I don't care if it's the color of the socks we wear.
|1 day 7 hours ago||Yes, i would like Hackett to||
Yes, i would like Hackett to stay on. He's been a steady hand while sumultaneously getting things done.
Oh well, I guess it's his decision. You have to figure that if he wanted the job, it would be his.

He knocked off scumbag Calapari and KY from an undefeated season. We would have never heard the end of the slurpfest.
For that, i will always be greatful.
|1 day 19 hours ago||But how is that any different||
But how is that any different than this wording:
A coach has the right to decide who is good enough to practice and play for his team. If a player is not good enough that he can no longer contribute, the coach has no responsibility to put him on the field.
Isn't it all just the same thing . . . cutting players that aren't good enough in the coaches eyes, for whatever reason?
|1 day 19 hours ago||Yeah, Hatch was probably a||
Yeah, Hatch was probably a bad example. it shows how much gray area there is.

Rutgers gets us a Michigan game in NJ every other year, and makes NJ Big Ten country. This in turn may get us Mr. Gary over Alabama.
Sounds like a good deal to me.

How did that work out?
|2 days 10 hours ago||Big 12 will expand to at||
Big 12 will expand to at least 12. They got their fingers burned in the Baylor / TCU situation by not having a Championship and a clear-cut Champion.
They will go about it like everyone does . . . they'll work their way down their wish-list until schools stop saying no.
They'll talk to Notre Dame, Nebraska, Colorado, Florida State, and a few other long shots.
They'll settle in the range of BYU / Boise State / Houston / etc.
Expect this to happen very quickly.
I don't think the B1G will be doing anything right now.

You're right, he probably isn't. He is not going to hurt himself if he keeps playing. Pipkins might.
A medical necessity should not be "can't perform very well" though, it should be "we are protecting this kid's life and future".
If you think that coaches should be able to cut players from the team because they are not performing very well and can't contribute to the team in a meaningful way, for whatever the reason, then that's fine. But it should up front and not be hidden behind some medical excuse.
|2 days 14 hours ago||I don't actually know what||
I don't actually know what the rule is, or if there even is a rule.
If there is no rule and coaches can indeed cut kids, then you could actually make the case that Saban is doing these kids a favor . . . "Kid, I'm allowed to cut you but I'll medical you instead so that you still get a scholarship."
For schools / conferences that give guaranteed four year scholarships, it should be clear if that means that the kid could still be cut from the team independently of the money still coming in (via a medical).
|2 days 14 hours ago||The question is: In college||
The question is: In college football should coaches be allowed to cut players from the team that are not performing the way the coach expected (even if their scholarships are still honored)?
If the answer is yes, then there is no "oversigning" and we should all shut up about it. Coaches will bring in as many kids as they like, and cut the ones they don't think are performing the way they expected, to get to 85 positions.
If we are going to allow coaches to cut players for "performance" reasons, then it does not even matter why they are under-performing - medical reasons, physical reasons, emotional reasons, whatever. If we are going to let coaches cut players, then the reasons are secondary . . . or not even necessary. We've decided that coaches can cut players who are not "performing" to thier satisfaction.
But i the answer is no, then only doctors should be allowed to cut players, and only for medically necessary reasons. Given that, those doctors should have some kind of independence from both the team and the player when they make this decision.
