...how Rivals paywalled content can just come straight over here.
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||Hey, Dom (and apparently MGoManBall)...||
you basically heap all of the blame on borges, even though they have a line that can't block, backs that can't hit a hole or pick up a blitz, a qb that locks on one receiver, throws ill advised passes and bails the pocket too quickly and receivers that can't get open and don't come back to the qb when he is scrambling.
Who do you think is accountable for the line being able to block, backs hitting a hole or picking up a blitz, QBs not locking on to one receiver, throwing ill-advised passes, or bailing out of the pocket too quickly, receivers getting open, coming back to the QB when he is scrambling, etc?
Oh, that's right...the OC is in charge of player development in addition to calling plays. So your point is..... ?

|6 weeks 2 days ago||I disagree heavily with one point of Adam's premise...||
Due to the fact that we scored a TD on the drive, Gallon's aforementioned drop near the end of the second quarter did us a favor. Does anyone think Indiana wouldn't have scored a TD instead of FG at the end of the half with more time?
To Adam's point, I think you have to look at the turnovers. In fact, our team has been really proficient at not just turning over the ball, but turning it over in really high leverage spots (i.e. that either directly lead to points for the other team or directly take points off the board for us). Change those types of turnovers and Akron, UConn, and Indiana all look much different.

|8 weeks 1 day ago||For the "Rich Rod needs to stop talking about Michigan" crowd...||
I would agree if he was finding any and every possible soapbox to get on top of to talk about Michigan (like if he was still talking about "eating the cookies he baked" and what not), but he's simply not. I mean, do you ever in your life talk about a job you used to have but don't any more? Or something else that happened to you in the past? You probably do. He's human, it was part of his life, he's going to mention it every once in a while, particularly when asked and particularly because he's in the media on a constant basis.
Let's look at it this way: how about YOU stop talking about guys that used to coach at Michigan but don't any more? Isn't that the same exact thing, but instead of putting the responsibility on someone else, you man up and take on the responsibility yourself?
|9 weeks 23 hours ago||Actually, no.||
"Stood up" isn't the exact right term either, but he basically rescheduled his official to Michigan after it had all been planned and other recruits had been turned away for that weekend in order to visit UCLA.
I'd be surprised if we got back in.

I'm sure there could be negative consequences, but I'm sure Brian will hold himself and his staff to high standards in the conduct with and presentation of these kids. In light of that, he's made a rule for himself (that is an important part of the business he runs). I'm surprised that's surprising to you. I mean, there are "potential negative consequences" to driving a car, or drinking beer, but you probably don't have moral qualms about those things. Brian can't control what everyone else does on the subject.

What you said was
You know what else you had in 1993? A basketball team worth watching.
And what I said was, by not specifying, you were lumping all the teams together. I think the vast response to your message is proof that you did not make your point well, which is how I entered this discussion.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||That's actually not true...in||
That's actually not true...in this particular thread, you haven't given very many facts at all. You've simply reiterated your opinion (about fifteen different ways) that the team has been bad, thus the students are right not to show up. You would have gone miles farther in my mind had you not called last year's product unworthy of watching (which you were guilty of by not specifying that you were referring to teams five years ago). Besides all the preseason accolades, that team was simply damn fun to watch. In fact, national pundits raved about the quality of basketball on the floor in the national championship game, and that was the same team we saw on the court all season save for a short stretch at the end of the season. You are going to come back and say "but students couldn't have predicted that" but that's not the point.....we're talking about students with season tickets in hand last year that didn't show up, not those that chose not to buy them. Those students saw the most entertaining team in the country and still decided not to show up.
Now all that said....I happen to be on the side of students in general. What would make me livid if I were a student is that the rules changed AFTER most had bought their tickets (in a similar vein, I think they should have staged in GA for football over four years so that nobody had to forfeit any seniority they earned under prior rules). Going forward, the system is what it is and students should have the ability to choose to buy or not buy....but the AD has done them wrong for the way in which they're going about this, and it's going to come home to roost with a "lost generation" of alums if they're not careful.

|11 weeks 1 day ago||On DirecTV...||
...the options are either $25 for the day or $40 for the game. Which is totally backwards, but still.....the jump from $10 to $25 prob moves it above the "worth it" threshold vs. going to a bar.

|16 weeks 2 days ago||From everything I've read, it||
From everything I've read, it seems that sports is actually the most-subsidized content on pay television. In other words...everyone reading this blog that currently pays for cable/sat TV would probably desire to buy sports programming if offered a la carte....in which case, we would indeed expect it to be *more* expensive. It's the non-sports-watching cable/sat-buying public that is subsidizing sports watchers' monthly bills.
So I disagree on one point.....a la carte might in fact be good for non-sports-watchers, but that doesn't include anyone reading this blog.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||I, for one, do appreciate||
I, for one, do appreciate that revised framing of the topic much better. To that end, I personally don't know the cost structure of what is required to deliver higher quality streams to you very well, though there is reasoned discussion below that infers there are still some hurdles. While we all agree that the content providers are going to do this to make a profit, so there will of course be a margin in there, perhaps the costs are still sufficiently high that the subsequent consumer pricing is still high. If content providers felt they could maximize profits by increasing volume and reducing margin, then it would no doubt be done. So I guess the question back to you is, how do you know they're not acting "rationally"?
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Are you really...||
...complaining about the quality of content you are illegally streaming?
That's like saying....screw you, Best Buy, next time I expect the TV I steal to be HD instead of SD!

|19 weeks 2 days ago||Given the excitement here...||
...perhaps you are right.
Why do you think this is so dramatically different than Google TV / Nexus Q? Is it just price point / ease of 'installation'? Or the market is more ready now than it was? Or something having to do with the technical guts?
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks||
1) Technology - I didn't realize that is the way it works. Thanks!
2) Regional coverage - Fair enough. On my DirecTV, all the regional feeds are available, but it's a good point that this is not true for everyone. Though, in my defense, nobody that was posting about this miracle device, to whom I was responding, mentioned this specifically.
3) This may happen - but my point was simply that this device is not going to be what makes it happen. It would unquestionably benefit, but if/when unbundling happens, then yes, this thing will have much more value.
And, hey, I'm not saying this thing is worthless, I just don't think it suddenly signifies a bold unbundled future as some above made it seem (how's that for a straw man?).
|19 weeks 2 days ago||MY point was...||
...this $35 device isn't the one that is going to turn the tides, even if it's Google. It could, down the road, be the benificiary, but I just don't see it tipping the scales. I could be wrong.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Do you live with your family?||
If not, that is precisely my point. You are "stealing" the content. I'm guessing you're supposed to have your own subscription to be legally watching.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Netflix||
Every one of those services stream everywhere they play, though. There is no "native" way to watch. Not apples to apples with BTN, ESPN, and HBO.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||I think most of you are overestimating the potential of this...||
Why in the world would you stream BTN2Go or HBOGo or WatchESPN from a non-TV device to your TV, when you have to have the TV subscription in order to get those apps? Why wouldn't you just watch the channel in all its full-resolution, direct on cable/sat rather than through the internet glory?
Oh, because you want to 'steal' the content?
Yeah...it's possible, but I doubt Google is going to "revolutionize" that particular aspect of the industry with a $35 device.
|21 weeks 8 hours ago||Methinks...||
...Brian is saying that tongue-in-cheek.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||That's true of any prediction anywhere||
...but in this case, there's money involved, so I trust that people are taking it seriously. However, regardless of that, they are saying there is a 20% probability of it happening, which means they are also saying there is an 80% probability of it not happening.
In other words, I'm not sure what your point is.

Given the deck will be reshuffled again in 2016 with the 9-game conference schedule, let's hope the MSU/Ohio thing is just a two year anomoly, and that we'll end up hosting Sparty two years in a row to get it back to having one at home each year.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||That could happen...||

|37 weeks 3 days ago||Apparel...||
...is a fair point. You are right.
I was referring strictly to blog posts, which I view as receiving a positive externality from the athletes (akin to covering the mayor), but not actually exploiting them.
|37 weeks 3 days ago||Here's an aspect I haven't seen mentioned...||
I thought one of the key underpinnings of the four superconferences system was that the superconferences would split from the NCAA into an ultra league, which would then enable the paying of players because the Indiana States of the world wouldn't be there to object. I guess this is not the case? Does Delaney's response indicate anything about the grand vision (or lack thereof) of the realignment race?
|37 weeks 3 days ago||Your assertion assumes that...||
...people getting paid to be ADs don't also make mistakes along the lines of Brian's wanting to keep RR a fourth year (which I don't believe is even an entirely accurate characterization by the time the decision was taken - all hail the Process - but point taken).
I also don't believe that Brian's income is exploitative of the athletes, but that could be open for rigorous debate.
I do agree with your last point, though I'd make the funds available only after eligibility has been exhausted, for things like health insurance and maybe a small pension depending on the size of the pot.

|43 weeks 2 days ago||Two notes for Brian...||
(1) In reference to the risk-reward ratio of Burke going against a strong perimeter defender at the end of regulation, you may have missed that Michigan actually got a switch and Thomas was on Burke. Trey really needed to get into the lane and at a minimum draw a foul there (MIchigan was in the bonus). That was my issue with the 1-4, not the set itself.
(2) In reference to Burke's soundtrack, this article may in fact validate Vivaldi AND Bombs Over Baghdad.

|1 year 1 week ago||From a football (and also basketball) perspective,||
Louisville is an upgrade to Maryland. Thus, he could see the ACC as being marginally stronger.
Given most folks see Rutgers and Maryland as diluting the overall quality of the B1G in football, he definitely could be talking about the B1G as devaluing themselves in the process - from a competitive standpoint.
|1 year 1 week ago||Interesting||
So, B1G needs B12 or SEC to poach other members, then pilfer the remaining jewels? Very interesting, indeed. May cause concern for greater instability down the road if those schools back into the B1G rather than join proactively.
|1 year 1 week ago||It will also be interesting to note...||
...where the North Carolinas, Virginias (maybe you have insight), and Georgia Techs - basically the AAU institutions rumored to be candidates for the #15 and #16 slots in the B1G - come out on collecting the penalty. If they staunchly defend, then it would certainly quell speculation that they have one foot out the door. If they're all "yeah....don't worry about it, Maryland" then they are probably trying to set a precedent.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||She shafted you?||
Is that a good thing?
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Ah, I see your point.||
Hadn't thought of it that way. It reduces the margin of error for Michigan but any year they go undefeated in the division, then you're right, they win regardless of crossover game outcome. But if they drop one to a non-contender, then it flips back to being unfair.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||By the way...||
...this is why I hope the endgame is to have Michigan and Ohio State in the same division.
Let this be the last and only time I hope Gene Smith ends up right about something...
|1 year 2 weeks ago||That's not true at all.||
Imagine a world where the Legends division plays everyone in its own division, plus Michigan plays Ohio State, Nebraska plays a decimated Penn State, and Michigan State plays Indiana from the Leaders, with no other crossovers. Due to the protected crossover, Michigan would have the hardest schedule every year that Ohio State is better than those teams (i.e. every year). That is an inherent disadvantage - and a fairly major one. If Nebraska and Michigan State are also playing Ohio State, then it evens out.
The other way around it is to have the division winner determined only by intra-division games, but then The Game literally doesn't count. And I doubt that's the outcome.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||The ONLY way I see it possible...||
...is if, in the era of 4 16-team superconferences, winning the conference results in guaranteed admission into a 4-team playoff. THEN I could see forces align to get to the "fairest" conference champion possible, which means playing as many teams as possible. But otherwise the higher likelihood of losses plus the lost home game or two relative to scheduling an additional 1-2 "guarantee games" would be too much to overcome.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||That's a very long way of saying...||
...it seems pretty clear that the B1G will have to expand to a 9 game conference schedule.

I also think "berating" is a bit strong in context of the post, but whatevs.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||My guess is that Brian is being friendly||
because it's such an unorthodox style of play (look at what they do against BCS conference teams...their rushing stats were the norm), compounded by playing it the week after Alabama, where there is just such little time to prepare (i.e. Dave Brandon gets the RPS -1).

|1 year 12 weeks ago||I just logged in...||
...specifically to say what you just said, but you did it better. Thanks.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||It's a...||
...stroke of bad luck for the swimmers, if you ask me.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Kitten Air Force pic||
...made me do a literal LOL. Well done, internet.
That said, no way we have that much ease on the ground and only put up 32 unless we do a purposeful clock melt all day, which seems unwise until we have a three score lead. I think this is a forty or fifty something to twenty or (gasp) thirty something game.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||It says we lost 16 points due to...||
...vacated wins and sanctions. Add those back and we're actually ahead of State.
(and, no, I'm not suggesting we should sweep that stuff under the rug or shouldn't pay the price for the reasons for those vacated wins and sanctions, just noting for sake of discussion...)
|1 year 16 weeks ago||It's pretty easy...||
|1 year 16 weeks ago||SI has made some comically bad pre-season rankings predictions||
Here's hoping for more of that with Alabama and Michigan State.
But here's also to no cover jinx for Denard, of course.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Good call||
The differences may just be due to being replicas rather than authentic.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Do not like||
Neck looks weird and I wish we'd move more towards the Fab Five shorts...bigger M on the side panel rather than in front.
That said, not too drastically different.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||This is prob what you mean...||
...but I think that's a dig on Nebraska (given the colors and the shirt before it in the online store), which is therefore a sentiment that we approve of.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||"How" did you survive...||
...assumes that everyone did, in fact, survive. Is everyone accounted for?
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Bratwurst||
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Fair enough...||
...and you're being cool enough that I almost regret my gratuitous pot shots at the less classy of your kind. Almost.
Seriously, though, thanks for the insight and contribution over here in enemy territory. Genuinely appreciated.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Look at it from Ferns' perspective...||
...he's got to deal with those wackos for two whole years. He's got to give them *something* more than "I like Michigan better" or else life is going to be made even worse by the cooler poopers than it already will be. If there's some other plausible explanation, they may tone it down by 10%.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||While I admire your sentiment and your tone...||
...you've def missed some of Brian's posts. This was not the first time.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||I reject #3||
RR as coach WAS his offense. You don't hire RR to come run a pro style...that would have been worse for everyone involved in the long run. That said, he passed WAY more often here than he did at WV, which WAS him fitting his offense around his personnel.
That said, it was a particularly difficult transition given the personnel, and Michigan is not a patient place. And it would have helped if he cared one iota about defense. Which will always baffle me because he played safety.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||You're probably right...||
...but man, if he didn't turn around that 49ers team immediately. Probably depends on context and who knows how it would have translated at Michigan.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Yeah!||
Who cares about all the Michigan football in between now and then, GIVE ME SOME BOND!
|1 year 18 weeks ago||You...||
|1 year 19 weeks ago||I hope...||
...that's the players' attitude, and I'm sure that's the message the coaches give them, but the reality is, fans *are* going to "worry" about that sort of thing. Because it's not like we can do much to "take care of business on our own" as fans.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||OSU's playing them every year doesn't *really* matter...||
...but Nebraska's playing them every year definitely does.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Yes.||
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Hmmmm.......||
However would we answer a question like that without it being reported??
/snark (genuinely not trying to be a jerk, your wording just left this hanging like a meatball)
|1 year 19 weeks ago||My biggest problem with it...||
...is that they both face the camera as opposed to each facing the crowd on its side of the field. Asymmetry sucks.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||So........I may be wrong.||
That would be lame.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Re: Michigan on the back...||
I'd be willing to bet that will be last names. They're just using MICHIGAN for the prototype to show what it would look like without including an actual "student-athlete" in the advertising.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Darius is a second year player...||
...I would hope he would outperform rookie Draymond Green.
|1 year 20 weeks ago||You're married...||
...and you still haven't "mapped out her full base"?? C'mon man.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||I didn't read that as making fun of long snapper scholarships...||
Maybe Dantonio actually said that to him.
|1 year 22 weeks ago||That's a festival that happens for one week each year...||
Someone could say the same about New York City if they visited just for New Year's, but that's not the day to day.
Actually, I can't I've been to Pamplona at other times of the year, but I'm guessing it's a lot like the rest of the country when the festival isn't happening.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||This.||
ND won't go for it because then they'd have USC and Michigan on the same home-away slate, but I've been hoping for some kind of "2 out of every 3 years" arrangement where both programs share that benefit/burden.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||I only enjoy recruits emulating Shane Morris...||
...when they are spearheading Michigan's recruiting efforts, not Ohio State's or anyone else's!
|1 year 23 weeks ago||The answer to the question is....||
When you learn how to read.

|1 year 23 weeks ago||Ditto for San Francisco.||
Ditto for San Francisco.

..."you" are real, or "they" are real? Are they spectacular?
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Impartial?||
He's never claimed to be anything but a huge Boston homer.
|1 year 27 weeks ago||He also...||
...was extremely lazy, which is definitely not how Kobe rolls. Shaq could be lazy and still dominate, but he also could have been more dominant than he was for a longer period of time. Kobe is still an ass, but their pairing was more of a bad fit than Kobe needing the ball or the attention.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||This was my experience as well.||
ChicagoB1GRed sounds more reasonable than the average Nebraska fan.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Or....||
...you make them give you a concession for coming off of it. This isn't a majority rules thing, it's a "everyone has to agree" thing.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Don't forget...||
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Does it count as a Rick Roll||
...when you ask for it?
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Do you honestly believe||
that players would rather have a bowl game than increase their chances for a national championship (and pseudo-bowl game for the final)?
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I don't think he'll...||
...get moved up because of his Michigan offer, I think he'll get moved up because of his camp performances.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Learned packing tips from...||
|1 year 29 weeks ago||And yet, on our side of the ledger...||
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
The choice is clear.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Possessive?||
CS Mott's Childrens Hospital?
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Maybe at the time...||
...but in retrospect, those classes were not only nothing special, but I blame certain members of them more than I blame Webber for the tire fire our program subsequently became.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||I fear||

Guy above Kelly's right knee: No, Don, you're doing it wrong. You need to make the GI Joe Kung Fu grip, like this.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Nice strip||
...but Dantonio is smiling too much to be taken seriously. Could you try to be a little more realistic next time?
|1 year 31 weeks ago||One of MY top 5 internet pet peeves...||
...is whatever combo of denseness and lack of sense of humor led to your post.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||I am literally shocked||
...at how many people are not getting the joke. This is Michigan, fergodsakes. Get a freaking sense of humor, people.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Now I wish I was an SI subscriber...||
...so I could have the distinct pleasure of calling to cancel my subscription and tell them why I'm doing it.
I don't know why this is good news to anyone...the Freep is forever dead to me and now this just taints another publication AND Rosey gets a promotion.
Sounds great! For me to poop on.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||I'm all for a movement to get the band there...||
