|1 day 9 hours ago||Couple of Thoughts||
There's so much to all of this and I think it always gets ugly fast on a board. But I don't feel like people have attacked non-revenue sports. I think they point to the price gauging and say "we paid all that money and don't get a return" in reference to the product on the FB field and atmosphere at the game. I've seen a lot of people point at non-revenue facilities and salaries and say that they don't mind seeing UM spending money there but have a problem with it if the revenue generating product is crap....which it is. I'm always fascinated by how an AD runs itself like a business but is such a warped version of that. We all say how we're the customer but I feel like we're quasi-employees because we're more vested in this "company" than a customer would be. I look at it and think of this scenario:
If I bought an iPad and it was a piece of junk but saw Apple spending a bunch of money into products that don't make money or are obsolete I would be mad about the crappy iPad and laugh when they went out of business for investing money incorrectly. But if I worked at Apple and they made a crappy iPad, charged a bunch for it and then went and spent money in those losing areas I would be hurt, worried and mad, especially if I cared deeply for the company I work for. It would be a completely different set of emotions and I think it mirrors our emotions towards a university better than trying to think of ourselves as a customer.
Note: I'm not saying non-revenue sports are obsolete or bad investments, just using that as my comparison in the manufacturing realm.
|3 days 1 hour ago||Dogs||
I feel for you. Our dogsitter lost one of our dogs two months ago while we were on our honeymoon. We came back early, looked endlessly for the past two months with no luck. My wife is still struggling with it. I hear the "it's just a dog" thing from people but when you raise one from a pup and then one day he's just gone it's more than "just a dog". I've never had a dog that didn't love me but I've known a lot of people who don't.
I hope your daughter is doing okay with all of it.

|1 week 5 days ago||1AA Caveats||
My dad has had Univ of Montana tickets for 30 years and I grew up there so I know the Big Sky pretty well and 1AA well. The first thing to look at is not the coach but the program. Any UM fan could have told you Hauck wasn't going to have much success because he wasn't that great at UM. His record was but that program has been cranking out 10 win seasons for 20 years. Plus, the Big Sky was a 2-3 team league for much of his tenure. He just maintained an outstanding program during a down time for the conference. He was a Special Teams coach whose brother was a legend at the school so his name got him the job. Plus, they sucked on special teams when he was there.
Baldwin at EWU is interesting but I'm not sold. When he was at Central they had a nice run but in a garbage conference and mostly because they had a great QB who now starts for a CFL team. He runs a nice offense but his success at EWU has been built on having a dynamic QB with little defense. Plus, the Big Sky is pretty top heavy these days so it's not too hard to have success in that conference. They have the benefit also of getting a lot of Pac-12 drop-downs and non-qualifiers because their admissions are pretty lax. Paull Wulff also built that up before flaming out at Wazzu.
If you go the 1AA route you have to find someone who took a garbage program in a mostly talentless region and developed something sustaining. One player can change a program in 1AA so short-term success should be measured carefully becuase it could have just been because of one elite player. That's why Stitt is such an entriguing possibility.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I think the main reason||
I think the main reason behind that is because most fanbases are crazy about winning and recruiting. The UM base is crazy about all these other thing you hear like The Michigan Way, culture and tradition. Not that they're not important but other fans just want wins. That's why some candidates may not come here. They don't want to deal with those non-coaching related things.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||The game was over before the||
The game was over before the first turnover happened. Plus those other things you mentioned are not just overnight fixes. They're real problems that the team may have all year.

Your title suggests UM is elite. I would argue not being elite is the biggest difference between UM and the other elite programs.

|5 years 26 weeks ago||I didn't say football||
I didn't say football experience, though that argument could be made. In HS he probably played more games by being a 3-4 year starter and the HS all-star games. But, playing at Duke and being hated by every opposing fan gives one a form of experience that Sheridan has none of. So, really he has more experience in athletics and quite possibly in football.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||True, but there are a lot of||
True, but there are a lot of times when people argue against something even when cold-hard evidence is flying in their face. Also, I was more after the reason why he thinks Paulus won't play. The original comment offered nothing to discussion and that is just a waste of the internet.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Talent is talent and I'm not||
Talent is talent and I'm not saying he's better than Forcier but I think he's on-par or better than Sheridan. I know what we're getting with Sheridan and though he may be improved, Paulus has more talent, more maturity and more experience whether it's basketball or football. Talent is talent and Sheridan has little compared to Paulus. Again, not saying he will be better but the potential is there with Paulus and I don't think it is with Sheridan.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||Sources?||
Did one of the coaches tell you that? I'm not saying you're wrong but the worst part about an opinion is when someone states it as a fact. Statements of fact about unknown outcomes is like trying to prove a point by yelling louder than anyone.
Brown, you are in no way the only person who does this but it happens so often it's ridiculous. But a lot of people give reasons for their opinion, so at least do that.

No it doesn't. He basically says that you need 16 teams to keep people from bitching. Not that they could actually win, which they could. He says that he'll put aside his logic (that no 8+ seed could win) to appease angry people. How is that better than the current system? How does he know a 17 seed has no right to gripe? 15-25 in rankings are not that different and going with that many teams makes it more objective. His whole argument is flawed and that paragraph should point that out.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||I once had a teacher tell me||
I once had a teacher tell me that an entire paper I had written contained a lot, but said little. You do that a lot. You write lengthy posts that say little that is actually correct. Like this gem:
"Yes, but unlike basketball, the 17th best team has no chance of winning the NC in a playoff unless the ratings are badly skewed. Until a number sixteen seed wins, there would really be no reason to gripe. I am guessing that nobody below eight would win, but letting sixteen teams in is a great way to make sure nobody with a legitimate chance is left out."
That whole thing is just a paragraph of hot-garbage.

There was a 5* kicker from Montana who went to Oklahoma them proceeded to drink his way to some NAIA school. There are 5* kickers, they only get the extra 2+ stars for being a badass from Montana.

if you actually knew he was being paid. The original article didn't mention it. Also, there are a lot of people who do this and there are companies designed to handle recruiting for players. The one I know of is used by non-star players (NAIA, DII, & 1AA level) to get film out and build awareness and also because these coaches at small schools have a hard time finding the right kids because there are so many of them out there. My buddy used a company like that because he wanted to play anywhere but wasn't good enough to warrant a D-1 scholarship.

1.Wash troll and remove giblets from inside. Dry troll and rub with butter on all sides. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Be sure to get some salt and pepper on inside.
Put in crock pot in early morning (about 8:00 a.m.). Turn crock pot to low - let cook all day. When returning home from work about 4:00 or 5:00 you will have a delicious baked troll. Remove from crock pot with spatula to keep from falling apart. You will have about 2 cups of troll broth in pot. Use for gravy over rice or mix with Stove Top stuffing instead of water. Garnish with spices and enjoy! Serves 6-8 people.

It was weird but these guys were so much more fun to play with that it was worth it. The funny thing is that they named the team "We Will Four-pete" The irony is so thick I can taste it.

Stomach bag and pluck (heart, liver and lights of a sheep --
Thoroughly wash the stomach bag in cold water. Turn it inside out and scald it, then scrape the surface with a knife. Soak it in cold salted water overnight. Next day remove the bag from the water and leave it on one side while preparing the filling. Wash the pluck. Put it into a pan, with the windpipe hanging over the side into a bowl, to let out any impurities. Cover the pluck with cold water, add 1 teaspoon of salt and bring the water to a boil. Skim the surface, then simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Meanwhile parboil the onions, drain, reserving the liquid, and chop them roughly. Also toast the pinhead oatmeal until golden brown. Drain the pluck when ready and cut away the windpipe and any excess gristle. Mince half the liver with all the heart and lights, then stir in the shredded suet, the toasted oatmeal and the onions. Season well with salt and pepper. Moisten with as much of the onion or pluck water as necessary to make the mixture soft. With the rough surface of the bag outside fill it just over half full, the oatmeal will swell during cooking, and sew the ends together with the trussing needle and fine string. Prick the bag in places with the needle. Place the haggis on and enamel plate and put it into a pan of boiling water. Cover the pan and cook for about 3 hours, adding more boiling water when necessary to keep the haggis covered.

I understand that Shannon is a discipline guy who may want to show his team that no one player is the bigger than the team. So I see where he is coming from especially since he is a verbal commit. But I also see Brown's side and the monumental decision facing him. If he's dragging if out for attention, well that's his problem. But if he is actually just torn on what to do then let him take his time.

|5 years 35 weeks ago||There is a huge difference||
There is a huge difference between a walk-on and a Elite 11 QB. Threet has had NFL aspirations since HS and is trying to fulfill that dream. Playing at UM is not the be-all end-all for some guys. Playing in the League is the ultimate goal for other, better players. A walk-on better than average HS player's only goal maybe to play on the UM team, get an education and move on to a career with that education. Not everyone's priorities are the same and I find nothing wrong with Threet's priorities being to look out for his potential NFL prospects. Good post and a good story.

Threet does have a chance at the pro's unlike schlubs like us. If he is a fringe prospect for the league then not playing for 2+ years kills his chances. They are looking at this as a career choice, not just a college choice. I'm not saying that Threet is a pro-prospect, but any chance he has is going to be at another program.

Good thing you provided a ling Brodie. Because Craven blew a fuse at the audacity of someone making a claim without a link to the thread. That claim was the initial Threet to transfer thread that he call "OUTRAGEOUS!!!!111!!!"

|5 years 35 weeks ago||Yeah, his play was a huge||
Yeah, his play was a huge factor. Sheridan's had nothing to do with it. Neither did the shitty O-Line that gave him little time and couldn't run block. The piss poor sheme's, execution and overall level of play by the defense didn't hurt much. The ungodly number of fumbles and the shitty special teams play also weren't huge factors.
Of all the reasons that UM went 3-9, Threet not playing well (while he was hurt) was way down on the list. I would take a guy like Threet next year over a true frosh. Look at how 'well' Pryor did with 2x the talent and being an overall better player than our two frosh QB's. Next year will be a huge struggle without Threet.

Oh yeah, we all made the same irrational posts last year. Good fucking luck in a conference a helluva lot harder than the B10. You may win more than three games, but not a lot more.

No one team was the dirtiest. They were probably all on par. The Oakland teams couldn't have been much worse and A-Rod probably only said that the atmosphere there was 'worse' to make it seem like he wasn't the only one else who was doing it.

Any change to the site and 'Holy Smokin Hell' their lives are turned upside down. Its a free site about amateur athletics at an academic institution. This isn't completely against you but so many people act as though their house burned down because Brian's gone. What if he just didn't post anything for a week? Would that work better?
|5 years 36 weeks ago||Who||
Haven't heard much from him. Is he the one that's a sleeper but also a package deal with Gonzalez. I hear he lacks power and needs to get in the WR but Barwis should take care of that. I'd be stoked if we got him he looks great on film and he's been playing forever so he's got good experience. We need lottery tickets and he would be one more.

"I was starting my junior year of college when I was 18 and would have definitely have found it patronizing if someone had decided I was a kid that needed to be protected from the big bad world"
You are an exception. These are not kids who are in their jr year of college and have known nothing in life but football and the people around them. Don't think that because you are more mature than them that they should be like you. Plus, there is so much seedy backdoor dealings going on that are way above these kids' level of comprehension that it is overwhelming. Yeah, they can vote, but I think most 18 yr olds are too immature to know who to vote for. I work with a lot of kids this age and they don't know jack from their ass. That's not a slight on them, it's just the way the vast majority (obviously you are an exception) develop and grow.
|5 years 37 weeks ago||The whims of 18 year olds||
The whims of 18 year olds change faster than a toddler's diapers. It's not that big of an issue for a kid to come back blown away from a visit and claim that School X is now the favorite. A lot of kids do this after visits. Big Will would be dubbed a "drama queen" to UM fans if he committed elsewhere, but he didn't, so he's a goofy big guy to us. It all depends on which fan base you ask.

Our AD in HS would not let you chant anything that might hurt the other teams feelings. He said that anything mean said to a player on the opposing team would be suspended from school. So the students started chanting "We Don't Like our AD" and "We have to be nice to you". Then when that was banned they just chanted "Our AD sucks". Since that was at a sold-out game against the cross-town rival, he has left students alone from then on.

Though kids may not want to leave the south because of warm weather, the proximity to home probably plays a bigger factor. I don't see a lot of kids leaving the north to play at non-elite programs in the south. Yeah, the big time schools will get big time players but not many 3* from Indiana go to a southern school for the weather and I would bet that the same holds true for a 3* out of Florida not leaving his home state.
