Certainly a fair point. I'm also (oddly) just now realizing that he is the candidate this year. He is more sought after for any HC job (getting his name thrown around for Raiders, Bears, Jets, and Dolphins). How often is one guy sought after so heavily.

I get that. But this isn't an example of breaking "below the norm". This is hugely above the norm. It's above anyone else in football! I think it merits discussion. Remember, this would (by a huge margin) make him the highest paid state employee, and I will reiterate, way above the POTUM.

OK I don't know where to put this and we certainly don't need new threads:
Anybody else (while of course wanting to see U-M football successful and acknowledging Harbaugh would be an excellent choice as next coach) and little stunned and/or apprehensive about this $8 million figure? I mean, double what his predecessor had and quadruple what our recently NC winning coach had! More than any coach in a professional team gets! Quadruple what the President of the University gets!

Canadian. Let's not forget Nik & fam are of Lithuanian decent.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Multiple factors. -Bball||
-Bball recruiting starts much earlier (for top end talent in middle school). We only more recently have been a power and when these players started looking U-M may not have been attractive
-Coach B has not as much of a history recruiting 5 & 4* guys. Some of that is purposely as he doesn't want 1-and-done types. He normally finds guys who are under-recruited and likely to blow up (Trey, LeVert, Stauskus, and yes GRII...hell even Spike). Any time one moves outside their normal MO they may not be as successful.
-It also feels worse. In Fball if you miss 2-3 guys its MUCH easier to find 2-3 repleacement cause there are more players for more spots. A couple misses feels like (and to a certain extent is) a big deal. It only takes a big player landed though to really change things for the better (right Mitch? right Trey?)
-one last (admittedly smaller) factor. We're adidas. Seriously some of these players (or their family, handlers, etc.) do not want them to be away from the cash cow that is Nike.

I think you're talking about pass interference. I think the penalty being called more is illegal downfield contact (you are allowed to "jam" a receiver in the first 5 yds off LOS but then its hands-off). This has been happening in almost every play for certain teams (Seahawks in NFL, MSU in B1G). Will be interesting to see if it is called more. Seems like other rules are already stacked considerably in the offenses' favor, but we'll see.

|47 weeks 3 days ago||I wasn't there so I certainly||
I wasn't there so I certainly don't know what happened. But I'd like to start a discussion point from a different analogy so I replied to get this a little higher in the thread.
I see similarities to the NCAA vs. Penn State. Major differences here are that the evidence was overwhelming in that case, and more importantly there were concurrant criminal proceedings. Of course this is not a perfect analogy, but it raises a question-
Here's my point: Did you (MgoBloggers) think then, and do you think now, that an organizational body that has noting to do with the criminal justice system (NCAA/OSCR) that does not have investigational power, should be able to dole out punishments for criminal (felony) actions?
I don't have the right answer to this. I was so angry at PSU for turning a blind eye that I wanted to see them punished, but leveling the punishment that the NCAA did for non-football related felonies was inconsistent with their previous punishments.
In this case now, we know there will be no criminal charges, but yet someone has leaked this and we all know are thinking that Gibbons is guilty of commiting this act (WHICH IS A FELONY).
As I've stated in other threads, I'm more comfortable with organizations within the criminal justice system investigating and punishing criminal acts. Thoughts?
|47 weeks 3 days ago||A prison sentance it is not,||
A prison sentance it is not, but expelling someone from a University is quite a large punishment for a body that has no investigative power and is acting completely outside of the criminal justice system.
While we all agree that further steps should be taken to punish (& therefore reduce the incident) of sexual assult, this policy (to me) has multiple large flaws.
This is a difficult, delicate situation where we are trying to balance victim's rights vs. accused rights.
|47 weeks 3 days ago||Mods I suggest this is worthy||
Mods I suggest this is worthy of bump. Just fantastic (informative too)
|47 weeks 4 days ago||Good points. My larger point||
Good points. My larger point is that regardless of intention, the consequences of this governing body's decision are very real and have profound effect (agreed that Gibbons already graduating is not the point here).
The problem with your analogy is that the person in question is not being reprimanded (or 'administrative action' or any other euphemism) for cheating on a test. The person is being reprimanded for what is in fact a very significant crime. So punishing someone for a criminal act without them being charged as such strikes me as quite odd.
I've tried for the most part to post about this policy in general terms and not specifically about this case, but I would add that in a case such as this where the person in question is a well known member of the student body, this person is now publically known as guilty of improper sexual conduct/assult (even if this is not the intended effect, are we to think anything else?) Phrased another way, I would argue that most people here, regardless of how they felt before yesterday, now are more likely to believe that Gibbons did perpetrate this act. This happened without criminal due process (although I agree he was given administrative due process in this case).
Bottom Line (for me)- I think something this profound and significant I would prefer to have handled in the court as opposed to a body completely outside of the criminal justice system, but I am open to counter-argument
|47 weeks 4 days ago||A good explanation, but I||
A good explanation, but I would argue that expelling them from school is quite a significant punishment in itself. The punished will have quite a difficult time explaining to potential employers why they transfered schools, especially like someone in this situation who is likely only a few credits from graduation.
|47 weeks 4 days ago||I suppose I don't understand||
I suppose I don't understand the policy. A schools' non-investagory body can, in the absence of criminal or civil charges, irreporably punish someone accused of a crime, including when the alleged victim does not pursue action. This again is done completely outside of the crinal justice or legal system. And you have a weaker standard of guilt than what has been used for hundreds of years to determine innocence or guilt? Am I describing this wrong?
To me this seems like this has the potential to have problems. BIG problems. False accusations are of course the risk that comes to mind. I AM NOT SAYING OR ARGUING THAT HAPPENED IN THIS CASE, but am trying to get clarification (not a lawyer) on a policy which does not make sense given my understanding.

It amazes me how many people in this thread want to continue the debate about Al Borges' performance. It was more bad than good, this is why he is no longer the OC. Its not as though there is some scadal or something improper that happened or he did that led to this.
But despite being paid hansomely (gorgously?) we can still thank the man for working very hard and committing 3 years of his life to try to improve the program. Thanks for your work Al, & good luck in the future.

Also, he is not trying to get back to "normal" activities (Walking, working a desk job, mild-moderate exercise for general fitness) He is trying to get back to being a very large elite level athlete...just keep that in mind
|50 weeks 5 days ago||That's an interesting point.||
That's an interesting point. It would be nice to have a few guys who you know more-or-less what you're going to get out of them (I would argue perhaps Bellomy fits in this category), so that you can shoot for a hit-or-miss type player. (I would argue that although he had good measurables, Morris is more towards this category, with favorable early returns)

It really is embarassing how biased they have (likely intentionally) become towards the SEC. As much as I like what Malzahn has done at Auburn and have never really liked FSU, it was GREAT to see SEC go down.
PS. Wouldn't ESPN also be happy for ACC? Don't they also own ACC network too?

I have a hard time keeping Drake and Damian seperate in my mind. When you (Ace) wrote how Drake missed the season I thought 'gee I thought he broke KY HS rushing records this year'.
I very much hope they both keep their commitments but it may be difficult keeping them straight once they're on the team as well. (D HARRIS JUST MADE A GREAT DYNAMIC OFFENSIVE PLAY!!!)

I know you meant this in jest but this is actually fairly analogous.
This does look to be a new low as far as money grab. Name an iconic arena with an iconic team after a guy who throws $ at you? Poor
It's not like this is the PSU hockey team where the guy gave $ so the program could start...IU basketball is quite established already.

This is what interests me. The fact that KF allowed this to go on and then had a soft response when multiple players of his were hospitalized for rhambdo (as noted above a very serious medical condition/more than simple dehydration) makes me wonder if this isn't more than just sour grapes. Don't get me wrong, some of it is absolutely sour grapes, but I wonder if KF has a sinister side.

Odd they'd schedule a game in the same year they were in a tourney together. Charlotte loss only hurts seeding. I'd rather them lose to a less talented team in the PR tourney than the NCAA.

It gets raised because U-M football didn't play last weekend nor will they play this weekend so all we got left is baseless guesswork on recruiting.
I suppose it is also a byproduct of this class being well on its way to being done before this football season even started...come what used to be a hot recruiting time is rather tame.

Let's at least use 2006 as the last time we were a powerhouse. 3 pts from the National Championchip game. The Sugar Bowl victory, while great, was kinda something that we snuck into. Won't take anything away from the team that won and earned it, but we didn't win the B1G and couldn't really consider ourselves a National Powerhouse despite that game.

This is something that is very important. I have a Wii (not PS3 or Xbox360) so I can't get NCAA14 (likely the last one they make) So definitely will want to be able to get it, if not now then soon. I don't have to buy the disk, but I still may wind up playing NCAA more than anything else.

Non parent (but expecting) & loved watching Saturday & hated the outcome. I can't say I fully believe in moral victories, but when Hoke or any coach walks into the locker room after a game like that he can say " you have NOTHING to be ashamed about" & he can mean it cause he's right.

|1 year 4 weeks ago||Well the reason that he is||
Well the reason that he is going to have a much longer recovery is because he is having a meniscal repair, not meniscectomy (removal of part of this). The goal is that this knee will function more like his "normal" pre-injury knee. This of course isn't a guarentee but the quicker recovery would be to just cut out the damaged portion. If this was done though he knee would very much never be the same.
Your larger point though may be true that missing what is basically 2 consecutive seasons and sustaining previous injuries to both knees may derail his superstar stautus/career. This is terrible for him, and for the NBA, becuase I think the Bulls with a healthy Rose could give Miami real competition. Now between this injury and rumors of the Heat breaking up, we may never know.

That's a good point. It's much easier to shrug off a loss now for the BBall team as the likely worst it would do is hurt seeding for the tournament, whereas any loss for the Fball team is devastating
