Perfect. It's about time. A professional opportunity for those that for whatever reason want to skip college, thereby relieving pressure to admit unqualified/disinterested student athletes. This should also end the debate about compensating student athletes beyond scholarships and modest living/transportation allowances - if you don't want the deal offered through intercollegiate athletics, go somewhere else. Every other major sport offers another path to becoming a professional athlete - I'm really glad to see this.

Wait, what about all the pundits that had us "a year away" at the beginning of the 2016 season?

Dude did not live a normal life. Former heroin addict. In and out of rehab for years. Not sure what caused his death, but that probably didn't help.

Enrollment is down, hence the new administration. However you are very wrong about finances - the budget is balanced and they are fine, even with lower enrollment.

Uh, that's not what I heard Sam say. He said he doesn't think Dantonio rolls like that. I heard him say Saban, Meyer, and Swinney.

Point is quit obsessing about the stars and be happy knowing we have a great recruiting class going AND the coaching to have them competitive with anyone.

I have a son who is 5'10" and another son who is 6'4". I tell my shorter son to blame his mother.

Of course, basically just repeating what I'm being told by someone close to Fleck. But there definitely could be semantics and/or posturing going on.

My source says no and backed up by columnist John Canzano: "Fleck did not receive a formal interview Monday."

Didn't even get an interview at Oregon. I believe his choices will be another non-Power 5 school or to stay at Western.

Nobody outside of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin believes that Penn State and Wiscy are even close to being the second best team in the Big Ten.

Rented a house on the bay in Delaware a few years back while my son was camping at Annapolis and watched those C-130s practice takeoffs and landings endlessly out of Dover AFB. Very cool aircraft! (GoWings2008, you'll also be happy to know my son ended up USAF instead of USN!)

I love "he had no chance to supplant O'Korn as the force majeure." That has to be the strangest use of force majeure I have ever seen.

What a small world! I know him too. He might if they paid him what they paid Daley, which was about twice what Steve was making when he was let go.

Steve Burns works in Development at U-M and is probably available...
|11 weeks 1 day ago||That sounds high. According||
That sounds high. According to the current win %s for the remaining games, we're about 47% to win out. I don't see how we get to the playoff without beating OSU, but the chances that we lose a game before OSU are so small that it doesn't affect the calculation much.* In the B1G championship game, I'm guessing we'd be about a 75% favorite. If you assume we're 50/50 in both games of the playoffs, that takes the overall chance of winning the whole thing to about 9%.
* If you assume another path to the CFP is losing to Iowa but still beating OSU, with everything else being equal, you can add 1% to the 9%.

It occurred to me a while back, after watching yet another ESPN promotion that uses a sports personality that I thought they purported to cover journalistically, that there is in fact no journalism at ESPN. It's the Entertainment and Sports Programming Network. There is nothing in its name that suggests they are journalists, and they are not. They are entertainers, pure and simple. If you're going to watch, you have to keep it in that context.

Wouldn't it be awesome if the radio broadcast and the TV braodcast was in sync so we could listen to Brandstatter and Dierdorf while watching on TV? Does anyone have any tricks or suggestions for making this work?
