the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

Yep, it's one of Donald Shepherd's many, many endowments to the University. I swear, the guy has his name on half the jobs and/or buildings on South Campus alone.

Just laughably bad.
And, of course, ticket prices and seat license fees will go up again, too. In order to see this.

DB: "I'm here to tell you that this notion of, being from time to time in some kind of alternate uniform, is here to stay in college football. You see it more and more across the platform."
What does this even mean? Are we talking about football here?

Prediction: No less than four unique looks this year. Adidas has too much product to move not to foist something on us.

Huge kick in the nuts to us Chicago-based M folk who count on being able to catch a game in Evanston every year. Thanks, B1G.

Can't wait for one of the incoming DB's to get to wear James Whitley's vaunted #5. Guy will be picking up unnecessary penalties in no time, and he won't know why.

If kids still want to sign on the dotted line despite the sanctions, O'Brien and co. must be doing something right.
So, basically, good on them. I hope they find a way to rebuild their program.

Is my memory going bad, or did Taylor reprise the Webber timeout in the tournament in like '96?

Those Jalen quotes came from a Detroit News story published yesterday.

Yep. Bullock was doing it while the investigation was going on. He was blowing right past the signs hung in the locker room with Ed Martin's picture on them and the caption "DO NOT ASSOCIATE WITH THIS MAN." And he even came from an affluent family to begin with, if memory serves.
Not from Detroit, no previous connections to Ed Martin, still collects a five-figure paycheck.
Guy may have had the sweetest jump shot I've ever seen, but talk about dumb...

This just seems... Wrong. But if this is how it's going to be, well, whatever.
All I know is college hockey is a Friday/Saturday game. Not Thursday/Sunday/Monday.

Chris Webber took money as a kid, and continued taking it after he was legally an adult. And as an adult, he perjured himself in front of a federal grand jury to cover it up.

Fun fact: According to Sports Illustrated, as of last year, the working title of said book was "The Black Forrest Gump."
I wish I was kidding.
Long story short, the sun will come up tomorrow, and it will look and feel just like the last ten years. Anybody expecting some kind of massive overnight sea change is probably kidding themselves.

I grew up going to Lou's short-lived toy store, and our family has since gotten to know him better through the alumni club. I'll wholeheartedly second your sentiments.
True Blue guy, and an even truer gentleman.

Well, he did rather unarticulately highlight a major issue facing a lot of municipalities that have used public money to fund sports stadiums, giving very profitable sports teams sweetheart deals that hand almost all revenue over to the team and leave taxpayers holding the bag for the facility's cost. It happened in Chicago with US Cellular, it happened in Miami with the new Marlins stadium, Detroit didn't get a really fair shake with the Comerica Park project, Citi Field in New York, the list goes on and on.
Not trying to veer into politics, but it is something being debated nationwide.

This can't be that surprising... Copyrighted content is copyrighted content. Sure, it was great to have all that stuff up, and I certainly watched more than my fair share of videos on these accounts.
But really. We all knew this would probably happen at some point.

In their defense, the reason they got booted (and Michigan was one of the schools who voted against them, if memory serves) was pretty convoluted at best. They got shafted. IMO, it's not necessarily fair to take a shot at them and say they "need to get their shit together" when they pretty much do.

In all reality, for all the hand-wringing the students are doing about this, it will probably end up just fine. After a few games, a new routine will solidify, everyone will pretty much figure out how to get to where they want to be, and that'll be that.
If I were them, I'd be bitching far more about the ticket price increase than anything else. If that's the method Athletics picked to weed out the fairweathers, it's a pretty shitty way to do it. They don't need the cash that makes up the difference. Most students probably could.

I saw Richie at The Ark the evening of the 2003 Notre Dame game. Went straight from the stadium to the show. It blew my mind. One of the best shows I've ever seen.
After the show, he sat around for well over an hour signing autographs and talking to people, and he couldn't have been kinder. A truly gentle soul who truly cared about both his music and his fans. Until he stopped touring last year, he had basically been on the road for over forty years straight.

It'll be like Space: 1999. Only you probably won't look like Martin Landau, and there won't be awesome pornofunk theme music.
