Coming back to this thread late, but yes, that was my point. I was focusing more on the quote about Carr in the ESPN exerpt (he supported hiring Hoke instead of Harbaugh) and how that's been indicitive of him generally not helping the department out at all after his coaching career.
Also, people may be looking back on Carr's coaching career with rosy glasses. He was a great coach early on his time, but by the end, he was entering Mack Brown territory where people were wondering how much longer he was going to coach and how do you delicately part ways with a former great coach. To me, after the 1997 season he consistently underachived while he was at Michigan.

For as much as we shit on Dave Brandon for all the program's ails, Lloyd Carr deserves a huge share of that too. His recruiting classes at the end of his tenure were garbage, his coaching tree was inept, he nuked Rich Rod's time here which set the program back, and according to this excerpt he supported Hoke over Harbaugh back in 2011. Ass. Hole.

This gives you a good sense of the level of command and respect of the people around them between Harbaugh and Hoke too. With Hoke, we still got tons of leaks and almost daily recaps from people on what was happening at practice. With Harbaugh, they've been underground for 10 days or so, and all that has leaked is some major injury news which is damn near impossible to keep under wraps.
As a fan that is craving any sort of info, its frustrating, but damn impressive. Especially in this day and age of social media.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||Dude...||
Dude, you are 100% missing the point. I never said Clark wasn't good. I never said Mattison wasn't good. I explained to the guy who didn't understand why there was no fumble REASONS WHY THERE WAS NO FUMBLE. Clearly Clark is good enough to be drafted despite his laundry list of off-field issues. And clearly Mattison is a good coach.
But as a whole? The last staff was garbage. Well established hot garbage. And not every player drafted is good at everything. Lots of guys are drafted (especially in later rounds) simply because they are raw talent. Also, do you know how many fumbles Clark forced in his 4 year career? One. One whole fumble.
So do you want to keep going? Or are you going to admit that maybe Clark wasn't the greatest at forcing fumbles, maybe the last staff as a whole wasn't great at preaching/teaching ways to force fumbles, and maybe in the GIF above there's a couple of reasons why there was no forced fumble.
Or maybe you just want to keep putting words in my mouth or nitpicking because I misspelled something. Either way, I don't care. I've made my case, backed it up with plenty of stats, and I have a flight to catch.
In the words of Les Miles, have a great day.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||You guys are all missing the point||
I was never the one that criticized the lack of the fumble. Its a beautiful hit. No one is disputing that. All I was doing is replying to the guy who was amazed there was no fumble. I pointed out Clark didn't try and strip the ball, and he didn't put his helmet on the ball. Both of which are two very good reasons there was no fumble. They don't happen magically.
I also pointed out that you could probably trace that back to the coaching staff (like you can with oh so many of Michigan's problems). And if you look at the forced fumbles stats over the last couple of years, Michigan has been one of the worst in the country at it.
2011 -- 16 forced fumbles (21st in the FBS)
2012 -- 12 FF (61st)
2013 -- 8 (102nd)
2014 -- 5 (122nd!!)
We've gotten progressively worse at it. And if you are teaching and emphasizing ways to force fumbles, you're probably not going to keep getting worse at it. And its not like the defense was lacking in opportunities.

|3 weeks 4 days ago||You are just so wrong||
Look, I'm going to guess that you don't work at ESPN and therefore have no idea what you're talking about. I'm going to go out on a lumb here and say I'm a far bigger expert on what's happening inside ESPN than you are -- would love to elaborate on that, but I can't. Your argument is just flat out ignoring the basic rules of any media distribution -- give the people what they want (and guess what, they want things like all LeBron, all the time!).
There was no influx of cable TV minded producers that had some sort of coup over the sports-minded producers. They may have hired a couple from outside ESPN, but not enough to change the mentality. Any of that focus change came from far higher up, and it came from a desire to improve ratings, which in turn allows you to charge more for ads.
Which, you know, is kind of how TV works.
Its a national cable network, and its goal should be providing content that interests the largest audience possible. Now as the TV landscape changes over the next decade or so, and we might move into a world where you don't need to fill 24 hours a day with programming, you might see that change. Its already happening with the web content -- specialized team specific video -- but guess what, just because you can produce a video on the Royals or Jaguars doesn't mean anyone is going to watch it. And surprise, surprise, the metrics for online videos show that people don't give a shit there either.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Its both||
Its both the parks and ESPN, but its mostly the cable side that has investors worried. They are still making (lots) of money, but instead of having like 8-9% growth like they forecasted, they are having like 4-5% growth.
I legit wonder how much longer Wall Street is going to be expecting 10% growth from companies and stop getting all freaked out when they still make a profit, but not the magical double-digit growth. You can only squeeze so much blood out of the rock.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||What?||
"Instead of having shows with dedicated topics - NBA, NFL, NHL - the format became 5-6 topics - LeBron, Tebow, ARod, etc. - run all day long and across all shows."
What are you talking about? And how long ago are you talking about? The only sport specific show they killed was the NHL, and that was mostly because the NHL killed itself and ESPN didn't buy rights to it. They still have daily in-season shows for NBA, CFB, MLB, NFL Live is year-round, and there are multiple in-season NFL shows. So that part really couldn't be more wrong.
The things they did change was they added a lot of hours of live programming starting with doing live Sportscenters in the morning instead of just repeating the 1am SC over and over during the day. On ESPN2 they also added shows like First Take, Mike and Mike, Sportsnation, LeBatard, and so on (God knows if anyone remembers what they replaced because no one was watching whatever it was). They do talk about the types of things you mentioned, but guess what? That's what gets ratings. Turns out people are more interested in the latest with Tebow/Kobe/ARod/etc instead of the latest with the Royals, Kings, Wisconsin football, etc. Its the same reason you see so much Harbaugh news. People are tired of it, but it gets ratings.
As for the hiring people from 24-cable news networks, that's kind of how the TV business works. There's only so many places to work, so if you're adding a bunch of shows, and don't have talent in-house to produce them, there's really only one source for the people. And ESPN itself has been 24-hours for decades.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||This is simple supply and demand||
It really has nothing to do with Disney owning ESPN. Its all simple supply and demand. Its not so much producers and whatnot electing to skip flyover states, its that no one cares about the teams or news in flyover states. The ratings just aren't there. So why create the content if no one is going to watch it? Make what the people want.
Know why a lot of restaurants have burgers on the menu? Its because people like burgers. Know why a lot don't have veal carpaccio? Because no one likes that.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Big Ten Network||
I don't think this is bad for the Big Ten Network. It could be quite the opposite actually.
Once TV moves to a direct to consumer model, why would the Big Ten, SEC, NFL, or any other sports league need a national network like ESPN, Fox, NBC, or CBS? Rather than outsourcing the work to those networks and letting them take a chunk of the profits, why not just produce all the games yourself (like the Big Ten Network is currently doing) and sell them directly to the consumer?
I think when the TV landscape does shift, its going to look a whole lot different than people think. Instead of paying ESPN $10-30 a month for TV, you'll probably eventually see a shift where you'll sign up for all Big Ten calendar year sports for something like $300-400/year, or just the football season for like $150-200.
And shit will never, ever be cheaper. People will find a way to make just as much money -- if not more -- than before.

The NFL's entire argument here seems to be "yeah, well, I just think you're wrong no matter what, so fuck you."

The more Roger talks, the more he just sounds like a clueless asshole. I mean shit, he makes Dave Brandon look awesome. Even Brandon would know this is all bad for the NFL brand.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Mayo was ruined for me||
I was never a big fan of mayo growing up, but it was permanently ruined for me when I worked at Subway in high school, and we had to refill the dressing containers out of these giant tubs of mayo -- and it just smelled and looked like ass. Then, on top of that, you'd have the giant land beasts coming in and ordering their tuna subs and wanting extra mayo on top of it, and then when there was a copious amount of mayo on top of the already mayo-heavy tuna mixture, they would often request more until the entire goddamn sub was covered in white.
And this is in no way an exaggeration.
It got to the point where if someone came in the front door, and they weighed in the neighborhood of 75-100+% more than they should, I could confidently bet they would order a tuna sub with extra mayo.
So no good sir, I respectfully disagree and think mayo is disgusting.

Given Michigan's long-standing issues defending good running QBs, Taysom Hill should scare the shit out of every Michigan fan.

|4 weeks 6 days ago||Why?||
There is pretty much zero benefit to having a hard OOC schedule. There's even pretty much zero benefit to having a moderately challenging OOC schedule. The goal should be to land somewhere in between Baylor's Charmin soft OOC schedule and something that's going to provide a winnable challenge or two heading into conference play.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Of course they might offer it||
Of course they might offer it (unless they wanted to be worried about making an insulting offer), but that's why you have an agent - to counter that offer. No responsible agent would ever allow his client entering his second year in the league to sign a 3-year veterans minimum contract. That is just all kinds of stupid. If the Pacers like him enough to offer three years, that's enough interest to get more than the minimum.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Just beat me to it||
It'll definitely be for more than league minimum. While I'm sure the Pacers would love to lock him up for the vets min for 3-years, Glenn and his agent would be insane to accept that.

It'll definitely be more than $1.5M. Around $800k is the veterans minimum in the NBA and no team or player signs a three year deal for the league minimum. In fact if Glenn's agent let him sign a 3-yr deal for the league minimum in his second year in the league he should be fired and banned. It'll probably be something like a 3-year $8M deal...and maybe a lot more.

And I don't think McConaughey or Harrelson's parts were that much better written than many of the parts this season, I just think they were parts taylor made for those actors, and actors made the writing seem phenomenal. McCounaughey is perfect for the spacey cop with a bad side. And Harrelson was perfect for the cop that's kind of a dick. Its essentially the same types of parts those two always play and it was written right into their wheelhouses.
Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, and Taylor Kitsch are all doing well in their roles -- not at the same level of Harrelson or McCounaughey, but they were both nominated for Emmys, so that's a pretty high bar. I agree that Vince Vaungh is out of place. That was a miscasting. As much as I love him, he's just not a dramatic actor.

Big Ten fees are the next big rights contract to be negotiated. And with the top two contenders cutting a lot of costs in the last few months, it'll be interesting to see what happens. Whoever wins the Big Ten rights is likely going to have to make quiet a few concessions elsewhere in their business to afford it.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||All tied to the rights fees||
It'll be interesting to see what happens. There's been lots of talk about a looming pop for the sports rights bubble and we might be near that. ESPN is tightening their belt and Fox just cut a bunch of jobs as well. Those two networks rely on rights fees more than anyone else (they broadcast the most), and they use subscriber fees to offset that. With subscriber bases shrinking, its a whole lot harder to shell out billions for rights.
It'll be interesting to see what happens when the next round of contracts comes up. Eventually something has to give, someone is going to have to pay for it, and it'll likely be the consumer. Cord cutting is a sexy alternative now because its the alternative and networks still have their business attached to subscriber fees. Its cheap because its new, and networks haven't quite figured out what to do with it. Once the subscriber model breaks, they are going to have to shift and start charging a lot more for the a la carte/cord cutter option.
The demand for live sports isn't going to go away. There will just be a shift in how we the consumer pay for that demand.

And if you're comparing 3 episodes to 3 episodes, you're forgetting what those first three episodes of season 1 were actually like.
In the first season, all you had 3 episodes in was an occult murder scene, awkard car rides with Cohle and Hart, a bunch of interview scenes with Cohle and Hart, a lot of poltiics with the task force, and a lot of relationship drama with Hart. There were plenty of places for the story to go -- much like the current season -- but that was it. Season 1 didn't take off until the big shootout in episode 4 with Reggie Ledoux.

Has nothing to do with pixels, but everything to do with cheap LED TVs.

Plus the majority of consumers didn't want plasma anymore -- LED was the new hot shit (even though plasma were still better quality).
I bought my Panasonic plasma around 4 years or so ago and plasmas were all but gone back then. 3D TV was the hot feature back then -- 4k was only on the horizon.

4K TV is just like 3D TV. There will be some content for it, but its largely a gimmick to get you to spend the extra couple hundred for the 3D/4K features on a TV. Neither is going to have the widespread support that the HDTV movement had. So just like 3D, 4K will fade away into a tiny niche market.
So, while its nice to be future proof, you're proofing for a future that's not really going to exist.

|7 weeks 4 days ago||Gonna be a long wait for 4k content||
I don't see 4k becoming a standard any time in the next 5-10 years -- if ever. Sports networks are paying so much for rights fees, they don't have the money to reinvest in upgraded infastructure, cameras, and broadcast trucks to do 4k broadcasts. And live events is where the money is at these days. Gonna be an even longer wait for broadcast or cable content.
For the foreseeable future, 4k is going to be a marketing gimmick.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Sony||
Really no reason to go with Sony. Especially if you want to avoid Smart TVs. Haven't checked TV ratings in the last year or so, but if I remember right, Vizio, Panasonic, Sharp, and Samsung have all closed the gap or surpassed Sony in terms of quality. Sony is basically living off reputation at this point.
No reason to get a curved TV -- that's just marketing hype. Also no reason to get a 4k TV. There's no content for it and there won't be for quiet a long time (rights fees are too goddamn much for networks to reinvest in 4k broadcast gear for sports).
So if you don't want to shell out for a top of the line TV that is going to have Smart TV features built in, picture quality is all relatively equal below that threshold. Just pick up a nice 65" Vizio or something with good refresh rate for $1k or so from Costco and you'll be plenty happy.

Once out of the stadium, I drank the still hidden beer from my waistband, bought another ticket from a scalper, and went in a different entrance.

I think I'd take the over on Ohio State and bet on them to go undefeated. That's such a loaded, talented team from top to bottom. As much as I'd love to see it, I just don't think Michigan State has what it takes to beat them on the road, and I don't think Michigan can beat them either. I mean, I'd love to see it, but if you're betting with your wallet, and not your heart pretty much everything says that should be a loss for Michigan.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe||
I definitely think the Nebraska game could be a loss, but you'd be looking for a good upset for their other loss. In that Minnesota game, you'd likely be betting on a 6-5 Minnesota team to upset a 10-1 or 9-2 Wisconsin team.

A lot of people already did. The line opened at 7.5 minus -125 under and has moved to minus-135 over. And that was two days ago, so it might be higher now. So when it opened, you could bet $100 on the over and win $125. Now, you need to bet $135 to win $100.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Who is going to beat them?||
In their Big Ten schedule, they play a grand total of two teams Vegas thinks will have a winning record.
Iowa - 7.5 wins
@ Nebraska - 8 wins
Purdue - 4 wins
@ Illinois - 4 wins
Rutgers - 5 wins
@ Maryland - 4.5 wins
Northwestern - 6 wins
@ Minnesota - 6 wins
This is why Vegas is filled with nice shiny casinos.

Season 1 took a while to get going. Looking back on it as a whole, it was an excellent season, but people forget about the bad parts. And since its a whole new cast/location/story, and should really be judged as a standalone show instead of season two of something, I thought the first episode was a great first episode for a new show.

C'mon, the most mentally grueling sport? It might be the least mentally grueling sport. Every other sport you have to be constantly thinking, reacting, and pulling on film study the entire time you're playing while also dealing with an opponent who is doing the same and trying to physically throw you off your game. Baseball, you just stand in the field for hours waiting for shit to happen without the opponent really doing much of anything physically to throw you off your game. The only times you need to be mentally challenged are in unique fielding or base running situations, and 4-5 times a game when you're at bat.
Shit, I'd argue golf is more mentally challenging than baseball.

And if all of their race-baiting and misogyny hasn't caused anyone to give up on the show, I really doubt it'll ever happen. We're all going to have to just wait for Skip or SA drop dead.

You have it backwards. For CBS and FOX, they broadcast the games, and talk about the games on pre and post game shows, but that's it.
ESPN talks about the NFL 24/7/365. Because of that, they are absolutely dependant on the NFL. Far, far more than any other sport. And its not just the rights to broadcast games that they need (that's a small bonus), its the rights to show NFL footage to fuel the countless shows that talk about the NFL on a 24/7/365 basis. Contrary to what people may think, the ability to do that doesn't come free. ESPN pays billions to be able to show those highlights. If they lost or compromised their ability to do that, it would be a crippling hit to the network. ESPN needs the NFL. The NFL doesn't need ESPN.

|16 weeks 3 days ago||Its not all that way||
A lot of what people percieve about ESPN these days isn't how every part of the company is. Outside the Lines and E:60 still do good work, and there are several writers and reporters that still hold true to the "old ESPN" ways of doing things. OTL's Floyd Mayweather piece is a good example. That was good journalism, but it was just buried in an avalance of self-promotion.
Its just everyone sees the foolishnes of Skip and Stephen A and the other assorted clowns and it winds up giving the rest of the people that work there a bad name. Trust me, there are plenty of people that work there that hate the way things are going just as much as the fans are. You just have to do what they do -- block out the bad shit and focus on the good work that people do. Its frustrating for fans and employees both.

I think he might actually enjoy being on TNT a lot more than his ESPN NBA appearances. The TNT guys are allowed to say a lot more than the ESPN guys are. Simmons would probably enjoy that.
I could see him signing with Time Warner. That would allow him to create a new site on Bleacher Report and give more legitamcy to that, it would allow him to continue producing sports docs for HBO, and it would give him access to TNT NBA coverage. The only thing Time Warner doesn't have is skin in the NFL. Not sure how important that would be to him.

Well that explains it.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||How?||
You must be remembering things different than I do. Michigan's problems those first two losses weren't the QB's fault. It was all on the defense that lost a ton of talent from the 97 team. The defense (and fumbling RBs) blew it against Notre Dame, and they just had no answers for McNabb. The Brady/Henson platoon had nothing to do with the losses in those first two games.
And Brady threw for 31/56, 375 yds, but only one TD vs Ohio State. Was that Henson's (who didn't play) fault too?
