I don't follow hockey recruiting closely; it appears to me that committments are taken from kids many years earlier than in men's b-ball; and then there's the annual poaching by hockey minor leagues. I wait unitl guys show up onthe ice wearing Maize and Blue and then I cheer for them.
A quick check of the UM hockey roster for 2015-2016 shows 6 freshmen, 7 sophs, 9 juniors and 3 seniors. That is not the profile of Kentucky or Duke basketball, and we were talking basketball.

at least the portion he expounded during halftime of our game, is that power five teams on the bubble benefit during conference tournaments because they're generally playing teams with high RPIs, while mid-major bubble teams usually see their RPIs decline even while winning in their conference tournaments. Mid-major teams need to build their resumes on the basis of their non-conference schedules.

I grew up in Pennsylvania, have been to State College a dozen times, but yesterday was the my first gameday experience. My wife and I were wearing maize and blue and _every_ interaction we had with PSU fans was positive. There was grumbling about some PI calls (wtf, every call should go your way?), but fans will be fans. I had several Penn State fans tell me to crush Ohio State next week (of course, I was telling them we'd be rooting for them next week).
Ice Cream from the Creamery on campus is delicious, and we met the Glascow brothers' grandparents there! All in all, a fun trip.

|25 weeks 3 days ago||Okay,||
people over 40 can have eyesight, video skills and judgement just as good as people under 40. Mike Pereira was born in 1950, so he's older than both of us. There should be some objective screening of replay officials which involves candidates not currently considered.
I would not qualify, because I could never be completely objective about college football teams.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||The targeting rule has problems,||
and these problems should be addressed.
But there is another problem, the replay officials in the booth need an upgrade, too. Often these replay officials are older refs who can no longer run up and down the field. I not sure they've watched too many games on tv this century, or are comfortable with the technology. Get some neutral observers in their late 20s / early 30s; they don't need to be on the site of the game. Mike Pereira always seems to get the calls correct (meaning I agree with him) when consulting on Fox. It is possible.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||So,||
I take it you aren't a fan of House of Cards? I found Kevin Spacey's breaking of the fourth wall a major distraction.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||If he's under contract,||

|25 weeks 5 days ago||I thought the same thing.||
And what a cool, collected performance on Michigan's final drive.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Ironic.||
Gophers gain 491 yards in the first 59:41 of the game, then, with the game on the line, can't gain 1/2 yard in the final 19 seconds
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Very emotional environment.||

it's great to be able to see every Michigan game in HD, and clearly there's no going back.
We had Bob Ufer on radio; in many ways that was better than a modern telecast with "neutral" announcers. If you had ever seen a game in Michigan Stadium, you could picture the action as Ufer described it: "Two tight ends and a balanced line, Huckelby deep, Davis close, Ricky Leach under center, the ball resting 18 yards in, from this, the western sideline."

|26 weeks 5 days ago||Visiting team effect?||
You can count on a certain number of opponent fans who either live in the area or choose to travel to Ann Arbor. Seattle is a long way to travel for a game, especially when you consider the cost of air travel in 1969. But the next week attendence for Missouri was 64,476, just under 15,000 more than for the Huskies.
It wasn't weather, high temperature at Detroit metro was 69 degrees, no precipitation.
Possibly band day, which was usually the 2nd home game of the season, IIRC. Perhaps the high school band members and their chaperones weren't counted?
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Vintage Bo!||
I saw your post and thought the title sounded familiar.

I know what I'll be doing after the Jet/Pats game. I'm not sure when i last powered on the VHS player.
|26 weeks 5 days ago||Season Tickets influence||
It would be interesting to see the season ticket sales numbers, and not just attendence. It was the demand for season tickets in the early 70s which ended Band Day; Canham couldn't withold 30,000 seats for high school bandsmen after Bo got things rolling.
Before 1970, I think the size of the stadium itself was a factor, tickets had been plentiful for 20 years. You could wait and see what the weather was like and drive to the stadium if you liked the matchup. Once tickets got tight, fans (no longer just students, faculty and alumni) began to plan ahead and made the committment season tickets. Canham and Schembechler changed the gameday experience, attendance-wise.
And Boones Farm was sooooo terrible, it might have been recycled wine.

Layoffs are stressful and can diminish productivity, which can lead to more stress. Keep busy and keep your spirits up.
I do have one question: the article says 350 positions is 4.3 of ESPN's workforce, which implies a total workforce of 8139. Over 8000 people work at ESPN?
8000 people, seriously? I'd nominate the Competitive Eating and the ESPY award teams for termination, but that's just my opinion.

|1 year 10 weeks ago||Well,||
we had to watch shows when they were broadcast, or wait months for the rerun.
VCRs, DVRs and on-demand streaming had not yet been invented. Nor had the plethora of cable stations distrubuted by satellite feed.
Needless to say, networks were quite profitable.

She was a former WCBN weather girl, fergawdsakes!

Are you the poster named Trey Leigh at fanbuzz, or did you find his post there so enlightened you felt the need to share it here?
|1 year 10 weeks ago||+1 to you||

Joking aside, I share your view.

The Onion is satire.
In related news, Jonathan Swift didn't really want to solve hunger and overpopulation in 18th century Ireland with cannibalism.

What makes you thay that?
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Quite a story, thanks.||
I was surprised there was no mention of AIRBHG.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Awwwwww,||
cut the young man some slack. He was deceived.

a lot of these movies are like 90 minutes long, some nearly 120 minutes long; I've got places to be, sites to visit, threads to start ...
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Because a rookie made an amazing play,||
intercepting what appeared to be a sure TD pass against the Patriots' goal line rush defense. The play call is being questioned. I get that.
It was rock, paper, scissors time; the Seahawks decided to go scissors, thinking they'd have two more downs to go ROCK. But rookie Malcolm Brown wasn' t thinking about the incredible catch Kearse made against him two plays earlier, he was thinking about what he'd seen on film when the Seahawks lined up with stacked receivers, and he made the play of the game on the biggest stage.
What a great finish to a great game.
Can we get a UFR of Q4 for our former QB and now 3 time Superbowl MVP?

That was an interesting post. Thanks.

Or does this post, like the one by the OP a couple of days ago about Grosse Pointe high schools feeding to UM, have a troll-like quality to it.

2015: College coaches have private jets for their recruiting trips.
1989: During a layover at O'Hare, I went to the bank of pay phones, found one not in use, and did a double take when I recognized the gentleman at the phone next to mine as Tom Osborne. He was asking directions to a home in the Chicago area. Cell phones and google maps were not yet in widely available.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Agreed!||
He is a better man than you; a much better man.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Spot on.||
Your narrative jives with everything I experienced growing up in Pennsylvania and interacting with relatives over the past 40 years.

subtracting the 5 players from Rutgers and Maryland who never actually played in a Big Ten game would be more realistic.

|1 year 14 weeks ago||Well,||
how good is their onside kick recovery team.
It needs to be pretty good, and the Colts need to start scoring.

We were promised flying cars; these self-driving vehicles are delaying (or perhaps ultimately enabling) those promises.

his predatory parents had his wages direct-deposited into an account they controlled, and told him they were paying his bills so that he could concentrate on what he loves and does best, playing hockey. That's usually how these scams work, more typically on a trusting parent than a child.
Sad. This shit happens to child actors all too often.

I can't stop laughing at him long enough to listen to anything he says.
Maybe next August, but not now. Not after his adamant coaching change rumor/bullshit schtick.
