Seeing Schlissel's comments alongside Bowlsby's, more or less, has me wondering at the apparent tension between wanting to treat (college) athletes as employees (or at least more like them) while not wanting to treat (college) students as customers.
Wondering how we resolve this--how do we have an ath. dept. that rewards its workers while still treating everyone else as stakeholders rather than a target market?
Could the students, for example, be something like stockholders in this comparison?

I don't understand why we're 'too good' for the CBI, though. It's not like we can't afford it; and it's not like we can't use some more experience. Heck, Walton might be back by the championship--and the CBI has that as a best-of-3 series which is pretty cool.
Is it because it's just been a trés long year for everyone what with preseason touring et al.?

"John Beilein has already ruled out an appearance in the CBI or CIT tournaments"
Not quite accurate. The CIT already ruled us out because...we're not a mid-major. So basically all he did was say we're not going to the CBI, since we'll never be eligible for the CIT.

Andrean is a great school and a great program. Like Michigan in the sense of being good academically as well as athletically. And who knew Coach Pishkur (3 state baseball titles) was a UM fan!
Although UM fans might not like the school because of some of its more famous alumni: Luke Harangody, the old ND big man, played basketball there.

“My dad, he’s a funny guy — he’s a football player, but he knows everything about every sport,” TJ said. “No matter what sport we played, he knew exactly what to say and what to do. I wouldn’t listen to him sometimes, but then I’d think about it and do it … and I’d get so much better. And he’d be like, ‘I told you.’ ”
Coach Wheatley prefers for his sons to enjoy their own high school football careers (he declined requests by The News to be interviewed for this story).

This just reminded me that I never told the end of my story...way back when, I published a diary about my prospective son's name hinging on the outcome of the Michigan-Alabama game. It was going to be Bear if Bama won, and Bo if Michigan won.
Obviously we know how that came out.
But speaking of "came out", it was a SHE that came out! So the good news is we named her Susannah (and call her "Zuzu" for short).
The bad news is my wife wants DOUBLE or NOTHING on the boy, whenever he comes...either NICHOLAS BEAR or ... well, nothing, which as any guy on here can tell you is something else she wanted anyway :)

I would agree with you--ten or so years ago this was a zero-chance.
But things have been opening up gradually at the NCAA--Scott Martin (ND basketball) transferred from Purdue, which cost him a year redshirt. Then he had horrible knee issues and multiple surgeries, costing him the following year. He came back and played two more, then was granted a third (this year) for a total of four years playing, spread over 6.
(In short, this is how a guy who was playing college basketball while Z-Novak was still playing high school is STILL playing college ball while Z has gone to Europe.)
EDIT: of course, he's not really "playing" for ND this minute, having had to shut his season down last month due to said knee problems.
There are other examples (Greg Tonagel, Valpo basketball, comes to mind), but you're right, usually both redshirts are really medshirts, not one of each.
Then again, ask a Sooners fan about Jason White! (If there were Houston fans, you could ask one about Case Keenum too.)
So don't give up the 'ship!

but valpo's going to make the elite 8.
a nice sentiment at heart tho :)
|2 years 28 weeks ago||well.||
i would say it'd be easy to "root for Sparty regardless of weather", since the game will be indoors.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||To be more than honest||
I do hope they go all ape-poopy because the Crusaders have just beaten them.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||well eff.||
because i NEEDED another reason to hate STAEE, right?
oh well it'll make it that much sweeter when valpo beats 'em.
and you heard it here first.

gradually resigning myself to the probability that Bryce leaves at some point, but it won't be for that job...

that this tool isn't even taking a good shot.
the post he was replying to was about the OLD big East, not the Catholic 7.
what a maroon.
thanks for taking this tool to the shed.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Oh well...||
Then it's embarrassing for us as well as the NYT for not knowing the difference between 'flare' and 'flair'.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||I disagree. He is a tweeter,||
I disagree. He is a tweeter, and here is a link to his account.
In all (or more) seriousness, I'd love to offer him too. Funny you should point that out about Illinois; I had a momentary fear earlier that he'd end up there and we'd regret it. Then I thought, "nah. he'd go to Purdue first." Not because of his dad, but because of proximity as well as former LC teammate David Yancey there too.
He played last fall listed at 6'2", 232. That's Ojemudia-size, so WDE is not out of the question, but it's also "smaller than Demens-size", he of course being 5-6 years older.
I worry that if they really wanted him they'd have offered him already.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||so true, he had to post it||
so true, he had to post it twice.

well then i take back my upvote.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||um...||
...does the name Jeremy Clark ring a bell?
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Eh,||
Yes, that's actually exactly the problem. The reason he hasn't been offered yet (and you'd know the minute he was because he'd have accepted) is that he's too much of a tweener--not yet tall/heavy enough for a DL, even WDE, but not really "made" to be an LB either (although Lake Central moves him all over the field). It's probably a large part of why he doesn't yet have any offers, not even MAC, as of last check-in.
Kind of surprised Magnus hasn't already chimed in with the whole size thing. It's kind of like his go-to on Gelen.
Anyway, 2-time DPOY for The Region, and gunning for three, which has not yet been done. (The Illinois winner this year from the NWI Times was Nyles Morgan, interestingly.)
|2 years 32 weeks ago||Hear, hear.||
I applaud that sentiment: here's the wrap up on Gelen's undefeated season which concluded yesterday. GRII (his dad) drove up from Atlanta to see him finish what he started last year.
(The problem with wrestling is that Gelen's in the 220-lb class; he seems to project as a DE more than an LB but he's LB sized at the moment.)
But back to Brady Pallante! He's from one of the better FB programs here in SWFL--although BC is better known for sending one Heuerman to Ohio and one to ND. Brady's father, Dan, is the HC here. And we like coaches' sons, don't we? Here's the wrap on Brady's wrestling championship.
Bottom line: trust the coaches and the Heininger Certainty Principle.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||...you...DON'T?!??!||
EDIT: well, i should say, i DID, until certain posters kept putting things in their posts to get me in trouble at work, like "my Dixie wrecked" and such.

Are you honestly comparing him to the pride of Bradley basketball? That's Brave:

You, of all people, I would have expected to have written that in Latin.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||nope||
this is just fantasy.

can we label these Manti threads OTe' just to warn people?
|2 years 37 weeks ago||And also,||
And also, it's "Whither Braden?", although, from the looks of him, we don't have too much to worry about him wither-ing.

I know what you mean...I remember the day I figured out that you weren't your avatar.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||not quite.||
nope. it seems we didn't handle it well (not saying he's a prima donna, but maybe)
standifer withdraws his UM commit ... the comments are now gone, I don't know, but
it was ND with the admissions-related decision (and he was totally upfront about that; so it's not as if he were BSing about UM)
and act III:
We will see how this plays out with Nyles Morgan...
|2 years 41 weeks ago||...yeah||
anyone else wonder if our handling of Standifer--while an important way to handle and ultimately win the war--might have lost us this battle?
|2 years 41 weeks ago||whaaaaaaaaaaaaat?||
"you gave you a pity lay"?
sounds like the saddest weekend ever
|2 years 41 weeks ago||i heard he's visiting next||
i heard he's visiting next weekend with stefon diggs.
at least i think that's what was said. i do need to clean my ears out a good bit.
|2 years 41 weeks ago||Also a valid point.||
Still, there has to be some way NOT to rank a class of 25 2-stars (50 pts) over a class of 8 5-stars, a 4-star, a 3-star, and a 2-star (49 pts).
Really, which would you rather have?
Not talking to you, Purdue.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||reply to professor X:||
in related news, the severed head of Ted Williams is being cryogenically preserved somewhere in Arizona also. So he's not RIP either.
EDIT: how long do i have to be here to remember how to reply to a post rather than the OP? yeesh.

i've had a few excrescent p's in my life m'self.
Hm...that would be a pretty epic band name...
|2 years 42 weeks ago||...Binghampton?|
|2 years 42 weeks ago||heh.||
his role in the Horizon League would be exactly what it is on UM. He's not up to 30 mpg in the HL.
Like our boy Zack, he's in exactly the right/best place possible for him.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||well..||
maybe if he switched the first two lines.
actually ... it spurred something.
To the tune of "Edelweiss":
7-8 minutes he gives 'em.
Small and white--
'Least he's bright,
Most seem happy to have him.
Hold the lead and we will succeed,
Buy Trey Burke some rest time!
