|10 weeks 3 days ago||Yes||
Yes, but it's not what most people think.
The assumed 'billions of dollars the NFL makes' aren't funneled through the non-profit. The non-profit portion only applies to the league's New York office and the 'non-revenue activities' directly attributed to them, such as membership dues, paying the home office staff, officials, etc. The estimated tax savings range from $100m per year to a little over $100m over 10 years, depending on who you believe.
The individual franchise organizations are not considered non-profit organizations.
I'm not defending the NFL, but I'd like to point out the major misconception of how the statement "the NFL is a non-profit" is true, it's not true in the way that 99% of people who hear that think. For as much play as this gets in the news, I think it's relatively minor compared to the legalized tax evasion committed by many tech companies who are not paying taxes on multi-billion-dollar war chests stored in Caymen Islands accounts.

I'm not a hater but good lord that's a lot of buildup for a goal that I've seen scored in youth games before.
He kicks it way ahead of a defenseman that makes a bad play (and his momentum is going the wrong way), runs to it, and slides it past the goalie. Yeah, big goal in a big game by a guy that has chronically underperformed since going to Spain, but it definitely wasn't INSANE and wasn't even that cooool of a goal.
I like soccer, but I thought the recent one where teammates tap it to each other like 5 times in the penalty box was a lot cooler. As well as pretty much any goal Messi scores.

|19 weeks 4 hours ago||"I'm so glad Michigan doesn't do that."||
"I'm so glad Michigan doesn't do that" applies to competing on an equal playing field, as several others pointed out, not this "NCAA athletes must have parents with money or be poor" idea you seem to be arguing against.
Equal signing bonuses for BCS-level teams (equal for all players and teams), fine. A stipend that reasonably allows them to visit home and have parents visit for games and go out every so often, fine. Equal stipends for off-campus housing for upperclassmen, fine. Meal plans at all the dorms anytime, fine.
The entire bagman article amounts to a story about bribery. When you pay someone against the established rules to affect their decision, that's bribery. It's not a law, but it doesn't have to break a law to be corrupt and inappropriate. It's still against the rules governing college football.
I hope Michigan always follows the spirit and letter of the rules agreed upon. I'm OK with players getting some money to allow them to be regular college students - but - I still want them to be college students, go to college because they want to be there, and to live by the rules. If you have a problem with the education part, point your sights toward the NBA and NFL because the NCAA didn't make those rules.
The argument you make seems to disregard the main reasons we're "so glad Michigan doesn't do it." I just don't think it's fair Ivan Drago got to take steroids and Rocky didn't.
|19 weeks 10 hours ago||Agreed||
Agreed completely about the marketing aspect of the Masters. I think a lot of the Masters hype & love comes from the South, because they don't 'own' much as far as professional sporting events go and this is one thing they can say is theirs.
It's basically Talledega for a lot less people who happen to have a lot more money, except I think it'd be more fun to go to the Dega 500 than the Masters.

I don't think it's just Brandon...The Yost atmosphere has declined for going on 10 years now since they tried to clean up the student section to make it more "family friendly". Yost was different, but it wasn't Dave Brandon that started making changes. There were sides arguing on MGoBlog 4-5 years ago about the See Ya chant, one side saying it was too dirty and the other saying those people were being too PC. That's just the most obvious example to me.
It would also help if we won a national title or two so we could get some of the excitement back that we had in the late 90s and early 2000s. No offense, Red, but I also think we'll kind of hover below elite as you continue to get older and stay behind the bench.

I think Nebraska needs two things:
1 - A new coach. Nebraska has so much to sell and Bo justs seems like he enjoys recruiting as much as Dantonio - not much. Beside being in the middle of Nebraska, their program has so much to offer in the way of facilities, fanbase, stadium, history, etc.
2 - To change the "official visit" rule earlier in the process. Since there's nothing else by it worth visiting, kids who want to visit Nebraska before September 1 of their senior year have to pay for a flight to Lincoln or Omaha. Those flights are expensive to most people, let alone kids who often don't come from the most affluent backgrounds This screws Nebraska more than anything.
Tough to get the same kind of recruiting class momentum we've had when you can't get kids to visit until the season. At least when kids from NJ, Florida, etc. visit us, they can usually check out ND, OSU, MSU, etc.

Ugh the complaining in this thread is incredible.
These presidents, especially at a place like Michigan, with a high-profile athletic department and massive healthcare system in addition to a 40k+ university, manage huge organizations with thousands of employees with billions in revenue, expenses, and research. You can't just expect to hire a solid candidate to lead a massive organization and not pay them. I feel like I am taking crazy pills.
What do you people expect us to pay our university president? She does a lot of shit and she had better be good at it. She is.
Then there's the self-righteous people that act like it's such a travesty to pay top tier football coaches what they receive - get real. It's 5th grade supply and demand. You don't have to show your indignation for the business of collegiate athletics everytime deadspin puts out some infographic you probably already knew the answer to if you had just taken 5 seconds to think about it, while likely complaining about Rich Rod not winning by the end of his 3rd year. But you wonder why they get paid a lot. Dumb.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Yeah||
Yeah, good call. Let's get cheap with the President and Football Coach, the two most public, important, revenue and/or donation driving positions at the University.
Let's save a few hundred thousand on Mary Sue and her billion dollar fundraising campaigns. And no one really cares if we have a good football coach. We don't have any real life case studies of how that scenario plays out. Also it's not like the Athletic Department funds itself. No, these must be the causes of rising tuition.
States cutting university funding is a huge part of the difference, not just paying presidents more money haha. And I don't know where you pulled that stat about more administrators than professors but I refuse to think about it because I think you just made it up.

I'm not sure if this is a funny joke, Ken-level trolling, or an honest comment. I enjoyed it.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Shane and Kevin Dillman||
Regarding the QB mobility question, I think the idea of a "Pro/pocket Style" vs. "Dual Theat" somewhat of an outdated mindset.
Shane, while no DG with his feet, isn't an immobile quarterback. He can move his feet a little and I wouldn't be surprised to see us continue to use rollouts in the same way Devin uses them. While Wilton Speight is more of your classic in the "pocket QB", he still tucks it when it's open (and maybe why he's a 2014 instead of 2013 because he thought he could run his guy over instead of busting his shoulder, but anyway...). Let's not forget Cade McNown and Jason Campbell weren't statues either.
It doesn't seem like Borges is against an athletic throw-first QB. The key being throw-first. I think Chip Kelly is the same way - he doesn't want a RB that can throw, he wants a QB that can move.
For 2015, an early top target for Borges has been Kevin Dillman, a Swedish-by-way-of-California QB that plays also punts and returns kicks in addition to being one of (if not the) top passers in the country (it helps he has elite D1 talent all over his receiving core but still, sophomore last year...).

|1 year 15 weeks ago||HAHAHA||
HAHAHA I did this myself back in the early 90s. I was busy saving my money for a $20 lego so I was busy using crayolas.
You seemed to actually put some though into it, such as having all the same position top and bottom half.
I wish still I had them...my favorite frankenplayer was Desmond Skrepenak, which...yeah. Doesn't really make sense but I figured a guy that can run and catch like Des would be tougher if he was big like Skrep.

I believe Steve Clarkson was the original and should probably be included along with those names.
He's working with Wilton Speight once a month in Southern California and tutored Roethlisberger, Leinart, Barkley, Clausen, etc. etc.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Brian||
Brian - Maybe you could (or already have, although I'm here basically all the time so I doubt I missed it) expand on "paying" players.
Basically the Ws - who gets paid, when, what method, and then how do you determine it?
Is it a set rate for all all athletes? Set rate per sport? Negotiable prior to signing a LOI? Negotiable after being in school for a while?
It's really easy to say 'pay them'. I just haven't heard a logical or feasible way to do it.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Dogville||
The creepiest thing about Dogville, to me at least, is John Hurt as narrator.
His voice is too similar to Anthony Hopkins, the narrator for The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. The entire time I felt like I was watching a bizzaro Dr. Seuss book on film.
And then * SPOILER ALERT * dead, with some more Dr. Seuss narration.

I wrote this lady an email telling her good job on the article. That and it was on the mgoboard a long time ago so she should expect the most pageviews she will ever write for a wolverine conservation article.

What say me about the NFL draft tension vs. twitter debate?
I guess I don't care. If you want tension, stay off twitter. If you want it fast, check out twitter. I don't really understand what the difference 60 seconds makes.
I love using twitter for following reporters and I love watching the draft. the 60 seconds between initial reporting from guy X on twitter and Goodell announcing it onstage are not relevant to me enjoying the draft.

Teresa Sullivan isn't exactly a young individual. She's 5 or 6 years younger than Mary Sue (we're close like that).
I can't really imagine the academic staff being OK with Brandon as president of the university, plus then he has a find a replacement for his position - not an easy one to fill.

Raoul stepping it up lately (by lately I mean about the past 8 months). Wasn't he gone for a while or am I crazy?

I am all for saving the scholarships for great 2014/15 guys.

|1 year 17 weeks ago||4-Year Scholarships||
I know that Mike Knuble, of early '90s hockey teams and NCAA-leading goal scorer his senior year, was offered a 4-year scholarship from Red in 1990.
I never saw the LOI or written scholarship, but I know Red wanted Knuble badly and Knuble was seriously considering juniors (as he was born in Toronto but partially grew up in Grand Rapids). The 4-year offer, even for career ending injury (which I guess is know called a medical scholarship), was a huge factor in Knuble coming to Michigan.
I don't know how my story jives with the recent change to 1-year max scholarships, but I am positive about my side of the story. Have heard it firsthand (although it's not like I can call Knuble and ask him).
|1 year 17 weeks ago||I agree with most||
I agree with most of this, but I think there's a place for McGary at 5 and Robinson at 4 so we can get 2 of Stauskas/Lavert/Irvin in at the same time. Some teams will be smaller and we won't need 2 bigs.
My breakdown is basically the same, minus a couple tweaks:
Walton 25/Albrecht 10
Stauskas 25/Lavert 10/Irvin 5
GR3 20/Irvin 15/Lavert 5
McGary 25/GR3 10 plus a sprinkling of Beifeldt/Donnal
Morgan 20/Horford 15/McGary 5
I think a lot of the season will again be Beilein messing around with his new toys.

|1 year 18 weeks ago||Jet's||
Jet's is definitely Detroit-style, even though they don't play it up. The wiki seems to say that technically Detroit-style is sauce on top of the cheese, so Jet's isn't quite exactly the 'official' style, but the key part to me - the crust - is the same idea.
I wish someone would build one in DC or Virginia...I can only get it when I visit for football games or visit my parents in Florida.
Personally, I don't really count Cottage Inn. Crust is much different, less buttery, than other Detroit pizzas. And those damn sesame seeds...almost ruin it for me.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Agreed||
Agreed with all of this, except Scout is worth the subscription for Sam Webb, in my opinion.
