I'm with Barry Alvarez - ROWING IS NOT A CHEAP TITLE IX SPORT.
It is not cheap to clothe, travel, and equip over 100 athletes and as the person who paid for these things for Michigan's crew team, I would know.
Think about flights, hotel rooms, food, and possibly per diem. Think about flying out Thursday night for a regatta on Saturday morning in Princeton NJ
-Flights for 70 @ 450/person
-40 hotel rooms @ 109/room for 2 nights
-Food for 70 x 7 meals @ $25/meal
-Busses to the airport, from airport, to practice, from practice, to regatta, from regatta, to airport, from airport.
All this and we still haven't talked about the boats (6-figure pieces of fiberglass), clothes, practice expenses which yes, we have to charter busses for (We're talking 'bout PRACTICE?) and more.
Don't just write rowing off as "cheap". Gymnastics might be cheap. Men's and women's soccer might together be cheaper than rowing.

That's a bowl game I'd actually love to watch, especially if the losers didn't get to fly home.

all the points to you.

The Iowa receiver on the 1st team list. Media will have him on 1st/2nd.

They are always playing themselves.
See their final two play calls against us for proof.

|12 weeks 3 days ago||All I Know is||
The article where I found the picture has the headline:
Tokyo Sexwale... the karate loving anti-apartheid prisoner who finds himself at the centre of football's racism storm
Which sounds like the tagline for the best made for TV movie ever.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||As a Black Michigan Alum, let me say this about the Missou stuff||
Those "few incidents'"were only the public ones. More articles, Missou student interviews (sory for the lack of citation, but I have work I need to get back to) and my own experience at Michigan all show that for every one public incident, there are plenty more that happen in private.
Getting called a nigger while walking through the Diag at night is an awful feeling. They know you're alone. You know you're alone. A blue light sounds like a great campus safety feature, but what would calling it do? What would they do if I tried to stand up to their ignorance and abuse? Those are the things we as people of color have to deal with at college and in life. I don't expect anyone who hasn't experienced it to understand but I ask that you seek out and ask someone who does understand.
It's bad enough in private, but it's another thing when it happens in the public light and those in power still do nothing, and actively ignore calls to make improvements.
NB: Sadly I won't be around to respond to any replies until later tonight, but I'm happy to talk more with anyone who wants to have a respectful discussion about this topic.

But in all seriousness, the things alleged in this complaint are pretty bad.

Gary loves to talk about his love of food. He also consistently cites the great food in Alabama. I don't like that combination.

|15 weeks 4 days ago||You're incorrect.||
football volume is 90% air, but the mass or weight is mostly leather/fomposite. If they can put an accelerometer in my 4.5oz cell phone, they can put one in a 14-16 oz football.
And re: the targeting call - It was it was still a person who made the error, not the camera.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||My favorite part||
Was that ESPN had both Bolden and Morgan in the spotlight because even they didn't know who the call was on.
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Neg me if you feel so inclined...||
But from what I can see, the Butt incompletion was the correct call. It looks as though he three-points the ball with the ground. Could go either way, but I can't be mad from what I see with my eyes.
I do have a proprosal for the future:
Put an accelerometer inside the damn ball! Also, lets put some of that TV revenue toward highly-accurate GPS, or lasers, or something scientific to measure where the ball should be spotted. Why we stil trust a bunch o zebras who only use their hind legs is beyond me. #Engineers4Harbaugh #ImClearlyNotAnEngineer
