Keep in mind this is a 2008 artcile. I'm sure Dantonio has things squared now.

Don't like the "throwbacks", the Sugar Bowl Jerseys, and am leery of the many of the marketing efforts . . . but I like the block M.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Lloyd Carr and the Lack of Support From the U of M Community||
1. How big a factor did lack of support from the "Michigan Community" (i.e. athletic dept. employees, university employees, alums, former players) play in the failure of Rich Rodriguez?
2. How big a factor did Lloyd Carr play in the lack of support from the "Michigan Community"? Did he merely speak volumes with his silence or did he openly campaign against RR behind closed doors to the "Michigan Community" ?

I am still having issues also - anybody know what's up???
|1 year 38 weeks ago||The article on Branding: Pissed Off ???||
I don't want to turn all this branding/marketing talk into a "black and white" (figuratively) "Us vs. Them" issue, but I am definitely in the "anti" marketing/branding camp. The article linked is a prime example of my frustration. The article implies that noone knew where Oregon was, and therefore their football team sucked. Then, Nike gave them a bunch of "flashy" uniforms and suddenly everyone knew where they were, especially all the elite high school football players! Not only did they suddenly know where Oregon was, they wanted to go play football for them and as a result the football team got really good. Yeah Marketing!!! I'm guessing that Mike Bellotti and Chip Chip Kelly might have a bit of a different take on what happened at Oregon.

Last time I checked the Big House is pretty full every Saturday and has been for quite some time now.

Doesn't a Michigan Football Game at the Big House kinda already qualify as a "destination" ???

I stopped reading the article (after a bout 5 seconds) once I got to his line: " ...recruiting rankings mean little when it comes to results on the field." This is abviously another guy who doesn't trust (i.e. understand) the data on the correlation between recruiting rankings and on the field results.

when Tom Brady gets to tell the nation his school! Whatever he says we are guaranteed a 200 reply thread.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||who will the coach be ???||
If it's Hoke then #1 is Tate Forcier (as he is our only option to be a "Pro-Style" QB) and #2 thru #5 are the 4 guys who will play DB for us. If it's a spread guy the #1 is whoever is the top Tailback and then the DBs.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||Key words: self-reported secondary||
While I love to pile on OSU as much as the next guy, I think we all need to relax a bit. Right or wrong, the media has generally chosen to ignore self reported, secondary violations. Their reason could be a simple one - the NCAA has pretty much done the same. Universities have figured out that if they self report a secondary violation to the NCAA, they are pretty much left alone with no major repercussions. Should the NCAA be doing something more? You could make a valid argument for that. Should the media being covering this more? You could also make a valid argument for that. But the media and the NCAA are not giving OSU any special treatment in this instance.

Brian never ceases to amaze me with his ability to deliver more in depth reporting than all of the other major media outlets.

Though it is a long read and makes the head spin a tad bit, it is very interesting.
One suggestion on trying to further test your theory. Compare the "success" (i.e. matriculation to the pros) of players within specific programs. Essentially, are the 5 & 4 star players at U of M (or OSU, USC, Fla, etc.) getting drafted at a higher rate that the 2 & 3 star players at the same institution? If your general theory is correct, then you would expect to see no major difference. Anecdotal evidence at U of M tends to suggest this is True: L. Hall, B Braylon, D. Harris, J. Long were not 5 stars (IIRC).
