I can tell you, having talked to some folks who were on the sidelines for both RR and Hoke, the Michigan sideline was absolute chaos for that entire span. It was absolutely obvious. The difference today is palpable. You can see serious focus, intense coaching, players acting like they actually give a shit... And it starts, as you point out, with Harbaugh. It's a welcome change.

But for me, even with the playoffs on NYE, a bowl game on December 30th is not great. "Elite" bowl games are meant for January 1st (or 2nd, in this year's case with the 1st on a Sunday). The new system sucks.

Of all the things one could get worked up about concerning Crisler, not yelling "We own Penn State" alongside Zombie Nation?
The students got that one right.
|4 days 2 hours ago||And let's put things in||
And let's put things in perspective:
"Athletics doing stupid things" is a significant increase in PSDs or ticket prices, student section hijinks, giant video advertising boards, etc.
"Athletics doing stupid things" is not "they scheduled a field hockey game at a time when I can't go."
|4 days 2 hours ago||So the field hockey game he's||
So the field hockey game he's complaining about was against Villanova. You think maybe they'd want to finish that game earlier so their students could get back to campus in PA at a somewhat reasonable hour--particularly if they're busing? They had another game three days later in New Jersey, too, meaning they were probably at home for about five minutes before having to turn around and travel again.
But, hey, college sports are all about fan convenience.

Shit, I remember taking homework to Crisler to do during pregame, halftime, and timeouts when I had upper-bowl tickets as a freshman. Where's the dedication!?!?
But, really, this is the accurate take--no one cared about the games before January because they were all at goofy times (like those weird 9:30PM tipoffs for the ACC/B1G challenge that happened a couple times) and/or against teams no one cared about (Athletes In Action!). And during fall semester crunch time.

There are many factors that go into scheduling. Your convenience is not one of them.

Well that's not ideal. But it's nothing new that Athletics basically has no interest in getting students to go to basketball games.

Ryan points out one of the more entertaining sides of living in a city, when you're sitting on a subway train and someone has obviously just made a Home Depot run and needs to get their haul home. Went through turnstiles with plywood and mops and pipes and shit. It's hilarious.

After 20 years of conferences scrambling to add teams so they'd have enough to get a CCG...
The Pac-10 had it absolutely perfect with a 9-game conference schedule, pure round robin, absolute champion... And still added teams to get a CCG.
Money, money, money.
