You all don't understand this is planned. The falling of the sellout record and the empty seats this season are necessary for the next steps, using these empty areas as an excuse:
1. Move season ticket holder up and out further by a section, reducing the student section.
2. Replace 30-30 yd lines, first 30 rows with club boxes.
3. These will be stadium seating, not benches, with concierge service.
4. These will be bought mostly by corporations, and the wealthly.
5. These will be empty most games, and guarded from unauthorize seat movers.
6. The skybox will be fitted with an awning to cover these people eventually.
This is what happened to pro sports and is moving to college. Used to be you could walkup to Tiger Stadium or Olympia Stadium and get seats just before game time and rather affordable. Now, with the superbowlizing of all sports, new stadiums have all these mostly empty corporate boxes. College sports is just a couple decades behind the curve.

The wings are victims of their own success. The past hirings of big free agents and signing good players to long contracts was copied by everone which led to the salary inflation and the lockout. Now there are no good free agents they are all locked into long term contracts.

I think ticket / activity fees are already maxed, so when labor cost go up and you cannot raise prices - you cut costs.

Which means only students that can afford college can go.
Poor kids will be relegated to the semi-pros, semi-pro football will become a reality.
Is this any different than hockey? Kids that want to go to college play college hockey. Those that don't play in the minors at 18.
This is probably how it should work, getting rid of all the phoney classes and cheating for kids that don't belong in college anyway.

Law of supply and demand. Demand (popularity) of football increases, they can charge more. Then the market makes cheaper substitutes, then the original product crashes in price.
I believe as the baby boomers retire (people that are conditioned to sit in small stadium seats and pay high prices) they will cut back and the millennials will NOT pick up the slack. This is why student sections are half empty. They were rasied in a world where everything is televised, streamed, DVR'ed - there is no special need to see it live.

It's called scouting / watching tapes.
Kids in school aren't going to learn 10 new plays a week and execute them correctly.
So what ever is on tape is 90% of what you'll see. Then you run a scout squad running the same plays against your D.
So yah, most smart D players know pretty much what is coming. You have a pretty good guess.
But if the O blocks and executes well it doesn't matter. Good running teams run you over even if you know it's coming.
In the past Michigan was known for prefect execution mistake free football. Bo, Mo, Carr would go crazy on missed blocks and turnovers.
I think those expectations are a bit weak for this coaching staff and that's the missing part. Call it grit, heart, will to dominate the leadership and expectations aren't there.

Yes, to many above, SAM is not in the play unless the center gets no downfield movement and /or the handoff or pulling guard are too slow.
If the play is done correctly with a line surge and a good pull and handoff, the SAM cannot get there.

Bring back 3 yrds and a cloud of dust! Bring back "big uglies". Bring back maize and not neon.

Not original six = lame.
Chicago is the new Colorado. I hate them all. Kane is a baby. I crap piles larger than his diving lameness.

Agree. IM3 was the worst of the lot.
I would have believed powerful alien rings (already established as possible with the Mjolnir, the ice casket and the Tesseract) than taking a drug that in a few hours makes you a cross between the human torch and the wolverine.
And what happend to the armor? He can survive a nuke, Thor's hammer and being chopped up in the world's largest hovercraft engine but in this movie every suit is frail and either melting or falling apart.

Also a fan and I don't agree.
These were much worse than the reboots:

The handfull of good teams with resources from the American, Mountain West, Conference USA, Mid-American Conference and Sun Belt conferences need to be assimilated into the big conferences with the rest dropping down to a lower division.

Really, Indiana and Maryland in November - not a draw.
I am sure they will still announce 100k+ but we might have to hire ILM to blue-screen in some fake fans in the empty sections.

Well I like where our BYEs sit (every silver lining has a touch of grey!).
One more week to prep for MSU another week for Ohio.
I am sure Ohio is bitching about their BYE placement. They get an extra week rest and prep for Maryland and Rutgers.

Then they will get a BCS Bowl and get crushed by someone.
Yes! The plan is all coming together! It has been foreseen!
A loss to Michigan and a Bowl loss - I'm prematurely schadenfreudeing!
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Yeah, and really the||
Yeah, and really the anti-trust is against the NFL and NBA. If this suit wins this minor league will happen. Athletic scholorships will disappear. There is no way colleges are going to pay students. They could go all walkon and people would still go to games - it's the game experience (tailgating), traditions and University that is the draw - not the individual players.
Then, poor kids will have only the opportunity to live on a bus and get payed shit wages by a semi-pro team. A team with one quack doctor and crappy health insurance.
Then you rip your knee up and you are done - no degree.

CGI wasn't there - had to have a two large space fleets in realtime and in a computer simulation. It would have looked really fake 15 years ago.
Also, there is box office trend of "coming of age children in peril in battles" successes like Harry Potter and Hunger Games. Hollywood is all about jumping on trends like the 10 superhero movies every year.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Totally agree. There are||
Totally agree. There are 444,000 student-athletes in America. A small fraction receive full rides.
If every player on every sport had to be paid that full ride that would be $27 billion a year just in scholarships. (444,000 x $63,500).
Right now: The NCAA research staff estimates that college athletics programs collectively spend about $10.5 billion annually.
So if everyone had to be "paid" just tuition on every team the expenses would go up 300%.
This would be impossible. And if Webber type players actually get paid their "true worth" of above a million a year (as they claim), how does that fit with title IX? It can't. College sports would revert to the pre-title IX days of only having men's football, basketball.
So the Sherman Antitrust Act is head to head opposed to Title IX.
Most atheletic programs already lose money:
Major-college athletics departments last year “increased the amount of money they generate" by nearly $385M, but “increased operational spending" by more than $665M, according to Berkowitz & Upton of USA TODAY. Only 23 of 228 public schools in NCAA Division I generated "enough money to pay for athletics, a figure basically unchanged for three consecutive years.” This marks the “fifth time in the last six years sports programs have added more to their annual operating expenses than they have to their revenue.”

Vodka Martini - poured - not shaken or stirred. A very dry, arid, barren, desiccated, veritable dustbowl of a martini.

Go 2013 Big Ten champs Michigan!

Half the comments are "conspiracy" or we lose because of this suspension.
We lose because we are not that good is my point. A good, experinced team can take a crap penalty and not cough up another 4 goals. Eventually this team will have that maturity.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||I am a huge life-long fan||
I am a huge life-long fan but this team is a rebuild project.
All I know is the wings have given up 12 goals in 3 games. Sorry, this is a losing recipe no matter what happened with Abdelkader.
They remind me of the early 90s wings - with Steve Y not yet mature and a lot of young potential.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Exactly, if it was Zetterburg||
Exactly, if it was Zetterburg (star) - no penalty no suspension.
Abdelkader second, third liner is 2 games.

When I was a kid, every announcer was Ufer-ed over with the radio except Keith jackson.
So both I guess. Most games Ufer, a big game with Jackson (like Rose Bowl). Ufer is better play by play but Jackson could setup the grandiosity like nobody else.

Last graph shows that mediocre coaches prepare better for opneing games because they need to get every possible win?
Then good coaches tend to overlook opening games (what me worry?) that leads to things like the horror?

You can't protect everyone from youthful bad decisions.
True story bro:
Had a cousin that got straight A's in architecture and then received an acceptance and scholarship from Harvard for a masters. He instead grew a beard, got married young and made handmade furniture for a few years before they had a baby and then figured how much things really cost.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||That why they need to finish||
That why they need to finish a degree. 99% of the 444,000 student-athletes will never make any money off the sport they play.
For Doughty to quit college to go pro - that was his risky call to forgo a free degree which is why he has no job.
Who said he couldn't slip and fall and rip a tendon while out jogging waiting for a team to call? Who's fault would it been then?
