I don't think anyone has really questioned Jackson's eye for talent. But knowing what to do with it once he got it has been an issue for about a decade. We've had talented backs that can't block, can hit holes, and can't generally do anything at all until they go elsewhere. That's on Jackson.
|1 week 3 days ago||Whole new WR corp||
Of Notre Dame's top 6 pass catchers last season, only Torii Hunter Jr returns. The only other returning player with more than 10 catches is freshman TE Alize Jones. That's one hell of a rebuild.
But they do have Kizer and Adams, which helps a lot.
|1 week 4 days ago||Return some important pieces too||
They only return 6 starters, but amongst those is Barrett, Elflein, McMillan, and Lewis -- four very solid dudes. And if you can only pick 4 to return, your QB, center, MLB, and a solid DE would probably be the four.

I think the inexperience will bite them against Oklahoma, but by the time they play Michigan they'll be plenty experienced.

I think they'll steamroll Iowa. I mean, Iowa got demolished by Stanford -- the only good team they played last season. They do return some talent, but that talent was failry overrated to begin with. Plus, by that point in the season Michigan should have their offense rolling and combined with their defense, be approaching juggernaunt of death levels.

Meant more in the contractual sense. In some states, if it comes out that you cheated on your wife prior to the divorce being final, the wife can go after you for everything. If the GF remained secret throughout the split, you can still keep half of your stuff.
In a non metaphor sense, there is likely language in the Adidas contract that forbids Michigan from publicly wearing or promoting another company's clothing while under contract. Which is probably why you haven't seen much of anything yet. Even though everyone knows Michigan is switching to Nike, I doubt they throw a big party promoting Nike gear while Adidas is still technically paying them. That seems like grounds for a breach of contract lawsuit to me.
And since only diehards like WD are waiting on the Aug 1 date, Michigan will probably just do the event on that day since there is really no difference or benefit to doing something on July 24th vs. August 1st.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||They will probably have some||
They will probably have some big'ish release event to show off the new uniforms. Warde alluded to something like that a few weeks ago.
My guess is they'll do it the first day of the new contract (August 1st I believe). Even though the contract with Adidas is ending, I doubt they can still do a big Nike promotion event before that. Would be like publicly celebrating with your secret mistress the day before your divorce is finalized. Nothing good can come from it.

Especially after seeing the way Cochran implored the jurors to use this trial and verdict as a place to make a stand on injustice with the LAPD -- evidence be damned.
I didn't remember that part, or the Hitler comparison part of his closing argument. To me watching it now with all the backstory now in place, that was way more impactful than the famous "if it doesn't fit, you must acquit" line.

Taking the PT seriously and finding a good PT is the best advice here. I tore my achilles and my physical thereapist was dogshit. Just gave me some drills to do on my own, rarely checked in on me in the hour+ I was there, and I wound up quitting after a month or two because I could do the same drills on my own at home. No need to spend money if they weren't actually helping me.
I should have looked to find a different PT place, because it wound up delaying my return to normal. The tendon wound up being fine, but it took a lot longer than it should have to get the strength back, which leads to your body naturally compensating for the weaker leg, which leads to other issues like knee, hip, and back problems.
tl;dr Find a good PT, and take it serious. If they suck, find another one.

It really shouldn't be that surprising anymore. I think this is pretty much the norm and expected reaction for pretty much all of the power program fan bases. The Solid Verbal podcast had a good bit on it, where you have all of these fervent CFB fan bases that love and outright worship their team and head coach WAY more than any other sport. Its not even close. Every fan base (ours included) has a "my coach is clean and doing things THE RIGHT WAY, but every other coach is a dick and cheating" mentality.
I mean, just take the reaction of Michigan's fan base to the satellite camp outcry. It ain't a whole lot different. Completely different subject matters, but the general reaction is the same -- our guy just loves the game and football, and all of these other guys are cheaters and lazy and jerks and their the real bad guys here.
And I could 100% guarantee if Harbaugh, or any highly successful Michigan coach were accussed of doing something very wrong you'd have the same subset of fans like PSU or Baylor does out there defending the actions and blaming it on someone else.
Its shitty, but that's the ugly reality of college football right now.

Yeah, I think that's the one. It was a tweet of a pic with 15-20 of the top QBs in the country that were attending a camp. Don't remember if it was Whitfield, or Manning, or what. Can't find the tweet or any mention of it anywhere online.
I found it interesting that 1) it was just Speight and not O'Korn too since other schools had multiple QBs going, and 2) Harbaugh was OK with his QBs going to a QB camp. Seems like he might be the kind of guy that likes to mold his QBs a certain way. Or to put it another way, if Harbaugh was your QB coach, why would you need to go get training from someone else?
Not a big deal, but like I said, just found it interesting.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||You're right||
Wait, you're right. Its Speight that I'm thinking of. He's the one going to the QB camp. The camp for the life of me, I can't find any mention of anywhere online.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Over a month ago||
The offense was from April 26th, well over a month ago so Harbaugh is likely well aware. Kinda doubt this is a big deal -- extra stairs or something like that type of punishment.
On a related note, I found it interesting that Malzone, and not O'Korn was the Michigan QB attending the CFB QB all-star camp coming up soon. Forget where I saw the image of it, but its just about every high-profile QB in CFB attending it.

Whether or not I've had to make a big decision that's affected hundreds of people is irrelevant to knowing the right thing to do. Potentially upsetting a few HS kids who were going to come to a camp hosted by Baylor to also see Michigan coaches, is worth it if the alternative is lending support to an institution that marginallized hundreds/thousands/millions of women by covering up rape and assault.
I'm genuinely amazed this is even being debated.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Bottom line||
Look, here's the bottom line: I DON'T WANT MICHIGAN ASSOCIATED WITH THESE RAPE-ENABLING FUCKTARDS ON ANY LEVEL.
End of story.
If the rest of you want to continue to want to have some sort of association with them due to whatever bullshit excuse you want to make up so that Michigan can try and recruit a few kids from Texas, then great. Good for you.
Also, give me a fucking break on the "stick to his commitments" bullshit. He made a commitment to Briles before it was revealed that Briles and his coaching staff were a bunch of rape-enablers. I'm fairly certain if Harbaugh made a reservation at a restaurant, and then when he got there he saw the building was on fire, he wouldn't say "well, fuck it, I'm a lead-by-example kind of guy and I honor my commitments, so Harbaugh party of 5 is here and ready to be served, fire be damned."
Y'all are defending this camp with some PSU/Paterno level fervor.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||They have three choices||
This is Baylor's problem, not Michigan's. By staying connected to them for as long as they have, they are making Baylor's problem their problem. Ultimately, Michigan has three choices:
1) say they are pulling out of the camp, and that's that.
2) Say they are willing to still go to the camp, but only if the Baylor coaching staff pulls out.
3) Go to the camp and coach alongside a bunch of shitheads that covered up sexual assaults.
Options two and three make Michigan look bad. Option 1 is the only good option. If some HS kid is bummed out Michigan pulled out of a camp co-hosted by a coaching staff currently in the process of getting fired, then so be it.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||No||
No, it would look like the adult thing to do. Release a statement that says given the current situation at Baylor, the school isn't going to take part in a camp with the Baylor coaching staff.
It was a bad move to stay partnered with them this long, and its an even worse move to stay partnered with them now.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Its not associated with the school||
You guys are missing the point. The problem isn't the association with the school, its the association with the Baylor coaching staff. A staff that turned a blind eye to and covered up sexual assault after sexual assualt. A staff led by a man deemed so corrupt that Baylor had no choice but to fire him.
There is no reason -- AT ALL -- to partner up with people like that.
Like, how is this even a question??
|8 weeks 2 days ago||That doesn't matter||
It doesn't matter if the HS is the middle man. Using that as an excuse is just lazy morals -- especially when its been promoted by both sides as a joint Michigan-Baylor camp. You either stand for something or you don't.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Good||
Good. What's been reported is shameful and abhorrent, there's no way Briles should have kept his job.
And frankly, its a little disconcerting Michigan still hasn't pulled out of that Baylor camp. They will likely pull out now that Briles is gone, but did you really need to wait for that before deciding to partner up with a school in the middle of a massive scandal is maybe a bad idea?

I -- along with others -- don't seem to understand why this is an issue for you. You can agree with Harbaugh that football is a great game, and want to see it continue, but you can also have the viewpoint that you'd rather your own child (for safety reasons) not be a part of that future.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Its completely fair||
The Jackass/football comparision is completely fair in the context of your question -- how can you enjoy watching football if you are opposed to your child competing in it. I like watching football. I like watching porn, spy movies, war movies, and action movies where people get into crazy car chases and jump off buildings and lot of other stuff. I liked watching a serial killer on the TV show Dexter (except the last season which was dogshit). I like boxing and MMA. I enjoy all of that entertainment, just like I enjoy the entertainment of football.
I wouldn't want my kid to do any of that.
The point is, football is entertainment. Its not some all encompasing ethos where you have to live and breathe it in order to watch and enjoy it. That's a pretty simple distincting to make, and not at all hard to understand.
Frankly, your desire to take the danger/CTE aspects out of the discussion is the hard to understand part. Its very much a part of the sport, and as parents who are in charge of their child's wellbeing, that's absolutely part of the discussion. Taking it out is like having a discussion about what you like about sex without mentioning any of the parts that make you feel good.

Playing time would definitely help his development. OKC just doesn't have much to go around. NBA teams don't really practice that often and if he's 5th or 6th in the big man rotation, he's also 5th or 6th in the practice time rotation. So of the little actual development NBA teams offer, he's getting even less. He'd be better off any place he could play -- including Philly and Sacramento -- because at least he'd be playing and have something to offer in free agency eventually.
The NBA is very much a make it right away, or not at all league. Limited roster spots, not much time for development, and 60 new guys a year coming to take your spot.

I was one of many that thought they'd win most of their games by two TDs easily. I also thought they'd rival '01 Miami for a shear amount of talent drafted. I was half right.
They struggled early on in the season because they missed Tom Herman A LOT. They had no offensive identity and played the wrong QB for much of the season. The shear dumbfuckery of their coaching on offense came to a head in that MSU game. It got much better after that. Defensively, I think they had issues on the coaching front as well because with that much talent across the board on defense, they shouldn't have had any issues.
But, they got things straightened out on both sides of the ball in the last few games of the season, so who the hell knows what that means going forward. The coaching staff may have figured out what works, they lost a ton of talent, but they also have a ton of (inexperienced) talent coming back.
The Buckeyes will likely remain a mystery right up until the last game of the regular season.

Who will now be heard from a whole lot less. With Costas and Micheals still around, there's just not enough places for him. Maybe NBC cans Dan Hicks and Tirico picks up his rando golf tourneys and ND football, but that's not an upgrade in assignments.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Reminds me of Josh Elliott||
The reason this whole thing reminds me of Josh Elliott leaving GMA for NBC is it was just as surprising and there was nothing for Elliott to do at NBC when he moved. Same as Tirico. He's supposedly getting the TNF package, but there's nothing else high-profile for him to do with Michaels and Costas there.
And I'm sure there will be talk about him doing Olympics stuff, but that happened with Elliott too and then he wound up doing a lot of nothing.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||No, I'm saying this is||
No, I'm saying this is Tirico's decision. I highly doubt ESPN wanted to let him go. And from the rumored TNF package he's getting at NBC it has to be a pay cut too. You don't go from MNF and NBA and assorted other jobs to 5 Thursday night games a year and make more money.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||That's the only thing that||
That's the only thing that would have this make sense. If he's only getting the 5-game Thursday Night Football package, that's a likely pay cut for him.

|13 weeks 1 day ago||You're partly right||
That's part of it and its also why its a big story. For non-athletes, bad water and scary mosquitos is something we wouldn't risk dealing with because there's no reason to. The risk/reward is way off for us.
But for every single Olympian I talked to, none of them were worried about either thing. 1) because of the years of training part, and 2) because a lot of them have already been in that water, and don't see it as being any different the water they compete in elsewhere in the world. People they compete with aren't getting sick from it, so there's no reason to be worried about it outside of the normal concerns you'd have anywhere you compete. So there really is no risk in their eyes. Rinse off good when you're done competing, clean all of your equipment good, and you'll probably be fine.

I think a lot of those fears and concerns are overblown. I talked to a bunch of Olympians about a month or so ago and asked them about that and none of them are concerned. A lot of the ones that will be competiting in Rio have already competed in the waters there and they aren't worried about it. There hasn't been any more or less sickness due to being in the water there than anywhere else they compete.
The thing is that they all travel and compete in varying degrees of nice/poor conditions around the world and are just accustomed to it. They know how to take care of themselves when they have to compete in literal shitty water. Its not the same as if you or I took a dip in the water there.
I also think Zika concerns are overblown. The game will take place in Rio's winter so mosquitos won't be at their peak. Plus, with the world watching, they'll spray the shit out of everything. Every Olympics has some OMG its gonna be awful thing. The water and Zika appear to be Rio's.

The crazy thing I've heard from a bunch of swimmers is that they are all expecting Phelps to be better than ever. Supposedly he really only started training hard for London 6 weeks prior to the games. For Rio he's been much more locked in and serious and has been training hard for a while.

|13 weeks 3 days ago||None||
They have none. Which I can't decide is a problem or not for the Big Ten. On one hand, its nice to have teams like Purdue to inflate your win total. But on the other hand, from a fans' perspective, you'd like to see more competitive games.
So Purdue can dump an extra $20M a year into their athletic programs, or they can spend $20M a year building gold trains around campus, and the net result will be about the same.
On a side note, I now want Minnesota to build an 80-foot tall gold-plated Goldie the Gopher in front of their stadium.

Honest question: Schools like Michigan and Ohio State can find ways to spend all of the extra millions they will be getting pretty easily, but what the hell is a school like Purdue doing with all of their money?

Say what you want about ESPN, but their streaming services are pretty top notch, and they are definitely being proactive about the number of places you can watch it.

Fox also has Big 12 and Pac 12 rights and there's always pecking order associated with these deals as well to determine which networks get first choice of the good games. Its why the good SEC games are always on CBS.
So a noon Michigan-Indiana game could easily wind up on FS1 or FS2 if Fox and ESPN (assuming they get the other half) pick higher profile games in that time slot. It would get even more complicated for 3:30 games since you get a lot more Big 12 and Pac 12 games in that time slot.
Basically, you're going to need some sort of cable package with a lot of channels or hope Fox gets their shit together with some sort of streaming app for FS1/FS2/Fox games.

|14 weeks 3 days ago||No they're not||
Medical redshirts are generally only granted when you actually qualify for them. The NCAA doesn't hand out bonus years just for fun. The hard and fast rule is you have five years to play four seasons. Beyond that, you can try and go for a fifth season in which you play by doing the medical hardship waiver.
To be elligible for a medial redshirt, you need to qualify for both statements:
1. You can't have played past the halfway point of the season in question.
2. You can't have played in more than 30% of the games on the schedule.
Ott qualified for the first one, but since he tore his ACL in game 6, that's at the 40% mark. Its the same thing that happened to Ojemudia.
Now Ojemudia heard back from the NCAA back in December on his case, and both he and Ott applied for it around the same time. So no idea why Ott's took so long, but its not the NCAA's fault that he opted to wait for their hearing and passed up the chance to apply for the draft.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||I fail to see how this is the NCAA's fault||
I fail to see how this is the NCAA's fault. By the letter of the law, Ott wasn't eligible for an extra season. He tore his ACL in week 6, which is a week or two too late to get a medical redshirt. Same thing that happened to Ojemudia.
If it ruined his NFL Draft chances, that's on Ott, not the NCAA. If he really put all of his eggs in the medical redshirt hail mary plan, that was a bad decision on his part. Its like buying a lotto ticket and getting pissed at the lotto agency when your house gets foreclosed on. He could have been doing NFL Draft prep this whole time, and could've/should've had contingency plans ready to go on the extrememly likely scenario that his appeal got rejected. If he was smart, he would have gone with the contingency plan on Jan 15th (the deadline to declare) and beyond that, he should have just declared himself eligible for the supplemental draft about 2 months ago when the delay started to impact his likely future. Participate in Iowa's Pro Day, conduct interviews...he wouldn't have been that far behind.
Did the NCAA take a long time to make a ruling? Sure. But, should Ott have known going in that there was no timetable for a decision, and that could impact his draft chances? Absolutely. He'd be stupid to not know that.
He made a choice to try and go with an unlikely medical redshirt season, and paid the price. That's his fault. Not the NCAA's.

The bad teams in the Big Ten are really bad. Purdue, Rutgers, Maryland, Illinois....even Minnesota and Indiana are pretty lousy. In 2015, the Big Ten had six teams with two or fewer conference wins. That's more than anyone else (SEC - 5, ACC - 4, Pac 12 - 2, Big 12 - 2)
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Makes sense if you think about it||
Once you look at Michigan's schedule, it makes sense. They don't play on the road until week 6 and that's at Rutgers. The first meaningful game on the road is at MSU on Oct. 29th in week 9. And none of the home games are that difficult.
The only game they probably won't be favored in is at Ohio State. Sure they play MSU and Iowa on the road, but neither of those teams will be what they were last year. Barring catastrophe, they should be 10-1 at worse heading into The Game. Tough to find many schedules where you can pretty easily pencil someone in as 10-2 or 9-3 at worse.

With the way the schedule is, you either win 10-11 games, or you beat MSU and OSU and win like 12-13 games. You can't do both unless you think we're beating MSU and OSU and also somehow losing to Penn State and someone else.

The revenue and attendance that the OP listed is only a tiny portion of it. And BTW...both of those are a pretty stupid metric when trying to make your point OP. If you asked any coach how important home attendance was to his desire to take a job, it would be near the bottom of just about every coach's list.

Which goes to my last point. Michigan bball -- much like Michigan football -- needs to decide what it wants to be. The football program clearly views itself as a perennial top 10 program and went out and made the changes to get back to that point.
I have no idea what the basketball program wants to be or how they view themselves. None at all. Hackett is smart and likely knows what it really takes ($$$$) to win in basketball. Manuel is coming from UConn and definitely knows what it takes. So as those two transition in/out it'll be interesting to see what happens with the basketball program.
