I started at UM in 1986 and could swear to having as a hallmate in South Quad that year. There were several guys who played big roles on the team in 1988 and 1989. I'm pretty sure he was expected to be one until injuries ended his playing career.

Phil Fulmer DID give an "unbelievable thank you!" to Vols fans when they won the championship in '98. So, sure, uncommitable offers, unthinkable thoughts, and unbelievable beliefs.
|1 week 3 days ago||Your comments bring a couple thoughts to mind||
If "blue blood" schools like Alabama, OSU, Michigan, etc. gave scholarship offers only for the players they actually wanted, they would be more valuable. I get the sense that the "market value" of these offers in the recruits minds are actually pretty low - and also in the minds of the schools themselves.
The value of something is inversely related to how rare it is. Maybe it's time to change the recruiting game instead of playing by the old rules.
|1 week 4 days ago||I read that article, too||
If this had happened in an important game, there would be a lot more questions being asked about whether anyone got paid.

Peppers will be used sparingly on offense, but when he is, the opposing defense will never be sure if he's the target or a decoy. In that regard, I expect a lot of teams to call a T.O. as soon as they see his number on the field in order to change their diapers.

May be due as much to the sense of entitlement among many of his best players. Publicly calling out their coach, declaring their intention to leave before the season is over, etc., has to be exhausting.
I have a feeling that if Urban takes a moment to reflect, he will see that his own coaching style (allegedly promoting the haves over the have nots) probably contributed to this.

Cash payouts are taxable income and if athletes and/or recruits are receiving them, that income needs to be reported. Failure to report it is a crime.
If it is happening under the table, then lots of people are lying and being told to lie about it. Depending on who instructs whom to say what, that may cross the line into suborning perjury. Also a felony.
If the university is a participant, directly or indirectly, it is at least an accessory to a crime.

Last summer, I got an opportunity to visit a client at Hickam. There are still bullet holes from the Japanese planes in some of the exterior walls; they were not fully repaired as a reminder that we must always remain vigilant. Holes can even be seen in some of the stairwells.
I had two uncles (my father's brothers) in the USAAF in Europe; both in B-24s and both survived the war. The oldest brother was a radio operator and made it (barely) through his tour of duty. The other brother was a bombardier and was shot down during a mission over Czechoslovakia in August of 1944; he spent the rest of the war as a POW.
I'm eternally grateful to both. One of the best war movie lines I've ever heard was in a mini-series about Dwight Eisenhower (Tom Selleck played Ike).

Can well imagine the thoughts in Jason's mind as he held his son in that photo. My heart breaks for him, his wife, his dead son and his two living sons.
Boys are different than girls - I know; I have one of each. Boys are not better, just different.
When he was three years old, my son would leap from the back of our couch onto the floor because - naturally - there he was at the top and there was open space between himself and the floor. Then, when he was six, he asked if I would help him duct tape a wing to an old stroller so he could "fly" it off the roof of our house ("Tape, yes; fly, no").
For every silly, stupid, insane thing my son does (and those things are legion) he has done a thousand more that stun me with their boldness, creativity and insight. And they all make me proud beyond words.
The boy in that photo could be my son in his pajamas; and so Jason's grief is mine, too.

This game scares the crap out of me. It's a game we should win going away, but Minny's defense is good enough to give our O fits. They have a very good secondary and will be able to stack the line.
Then there is the emotional X-factor for the Gophers. That won't likely matter a lot past the opening quarter, but if they keep it close, perhaps that gives them a boost deep into the fourth.
The team that wins will put together a drive late. Considering the struggles of both offenses, it could be either team.

My daughter doesn't have any desire to transfer - she loves Michigan. What she can't figure out is her major.
She's meeting with her adviser on Friday to discuss her options. I have a feeling this is probably a pretty standard line of conversation with most undergraduates!

You can owe me.

'Cause chill is what they've got in abundance. Several feet of chill come down every year and it doesn't melt until late June.

I'd be having this discussion with my daughter? Boy, howdy, this freshman year angst is a real pain in the ass.

I would be happy with any score that ends with a Michigan "W".
|14 weeks 5 days ago||Sure||
But the proposed difference, if I read the OP correctly, is that there would be a rule under which a player would be allowed no more than a maximum number of concussive blows or a single blow that exceeded some kind of threshold. That would codify the incentive and make the game more dangerous not less.

The UFO enthusiasts just need to keep things in perspective; then it will become clearer.
I'll show myself out.

Bad idea. That would create an incentive to get an opposing team's best players to rack up hits as quickly as possible so that they would be disqualified for the remainder of the game.
Inertia is about velocity and mass. Helmets are pretty damned heavy things strapped on the end of a moment arm (i.e. the neck). That inventor's answer is to add an even more massive (literally) contraption to the head. Did he not take physics in high school?
It may seem counterintuitive, but as others have pointed out here, it may be better to go with minimal protection for the head. That would require different techniques of play (particularly in the trenches) at every position. There would be no illusion of a "safe" hit.

That does help.

I came into this thread fully expecting to neg the hell out of the OP. Nope. Can't do it. This was an epic bait and switch and I laughed pretty hard. Well played.

Isn't exactly an antidote to herd mentality.

MGrowOld pointed this out last time and since "N" comes after "M" and my usename is "Njia", I guess I'm up.
I mean this in the nicest way possible.

It's a simple concept to understand, really. Ask yourself the following:
If the answer to all three is "YES" then rest assured, you don't need to post it. It's been done already. Probably more than once.

To start another post-game emo thread. Who's with me?
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Me, too!||
You can't get your own thread unless I get one too!!!

Was his original sin. Should have given no quarter.
