A lot of people do care. Why do you think there is so much interest in the Director's Cup? We hang our hat on being the best combination of academics and athletics and Stanford is the only school that can claim superiority. We crush them in football and men's basketball and that is good enough for me.

F-you, c-sucker. The only point I will concede is that L took full advantage of their fortuitous officiating. Don't fucking point out the foul differential. Louisville just keeps fouling and knows the refs won't take their players out of the game in the end. Someone convince me Mitch's fourth foul and UL's 11 not getting his fourth didn't profoundly affect the game.

Coach is the perfect embodiment of the Michigan Man. He is the master of his craft yet humble to a fault. He is truly a genuine, caring mentor for all his players. I get now why he's not in on the recruitment of many one-and-done types. He wants kids that want to be at Michigan as opposed to those that are just looking for a pit stop. He expects them to be student-athletes by demanding they go to class and study on top of their busy basketball schedule.
We are truly lucky to have this man leading our basketball program.

I can't believe people are criticizing this guy for taking a million dollar raise. He took this program probably as far as it can go. They won't be able to compete with UF, FSU, and Miami in the long run. They don't have the resources and alumni/booster base to do so.
This hire makes total sense for USC/Haden. Haden is a cerebral guy so it figures he'd be enamored with a Hopkins man. Also, Enfield has shown the ability to take a fledgling, moribund program and turn it into a winner in a short time. Time will tell whether or not he can do it against the big boys.

Call me a cynic, but it's easy to make this move when the football team's at the top of the mountain and their recruiting machine is bringing in top recruits on an annual basis. Also, was this Nick's doing or the University's? UA couldn't take the PR hit that would've accompanied keeping these guys on, especially if they only kept the guys most likely to contribute on the playing field. They don't want to actually confirm to the world that they have a win-at-all-costs mentality.

I suppose he has a reason to be salty. He built/is Duke basketball. Maryland, by leaving th ACC, has really opened up the possibility of UVA, GT, and UNC leaving as well. That would kill the academic cache of the conference.

Not sure why you would take solace in this. Coach Wilcher is a Michigan Man and he's doing a great job with the CT program.

Anyway, why was Mitch in the paint and not defending the inbounder? At bare minimum, he should've been helping on one of their best shooters.
As I haven't been able to watch the games, I want to know how Craft fouled out against IU and had no problems against us, even in AA. Was it the officiating or was it something schematic IU did. Surely Burke has to be more difficult to defend than any IU guard.

This is why the notion that "Nike clubs suck" doesn't hold water here. Most of the top blade irons are coming from these Japanes foundries. There's only so much technology that can go into exactly where to distribute a limited amount of mass on the back of an iron. The most important factors are shaft and grind. I'm sure he will keep the same shafts and sole grinds.

I don't agree that the ACC would rather have Louisville than Maryland. This was just a move made out of desperation/necessity.
Louisville offers nothing outside of football and basketball. Maryland is a national power in several non-revenue sports.
I think Louisville's success in football and basketball are tenuous at best. They lucked out with both Petrino and Strong. Strong is gone when the next high-profile job opens up. Then, most likely another long stretch of mediocrity. Basketball will probably always be second fiddle to UK. Fortunately, it looks like Petino stays for a while and they'll have continued success, but then?
Maryland has a much greater educated, monied population base. Read: larger, more influential fan base.

It's got to be tough preparing one, let alone three, qb's in the short amount of prep time. I think it's really hard to blame Borges for not having the 3rd string qb ready to play.
Having said that, I'll concede that he should've been more prepared for the possibility that a backup qb would need to play. I'm not certain, but wasn't Denard's elbow injured before the Nebraska game? Also, he should've recognized that Devin was/is a better qb than Russell.
Now that I think about it, I guess it is all Borges' fault!

I'm assuming you're referring to football players. I have no idea if all scholarship athletes receive the same benefits.
I can't believe you'd begrudge the athletes anything they receive. If anything, football players are woefully under-compensated. Just think of their benefits as compensation for a job they're performing for the university. A job that has skill requirements that few in the student body possess.
As a former student I appreciated all the football players did for the school. They gave the school a great team for which to cheer.
They also subsidized part of our own education costs. Having the Athletic Department being financially independent and profitable allowed the University to not pass some of the costs to the students.
As for having to stress out about interviews, applications, and resume, that's all on you. If you're smart and motivated, opportunity will be there.
