Does Stanford fit? I honestly don't know enough about all other athletic departments to tell you.
TV money is there, seats in the stadium are >everywhere else, and you have a very large group of loyal alumni. You do not need to squeeze the nickles out as they come back as quarters when you've gained more people with attachments to the school and program. He's not doing that. He's tried to make the most money off ticket sales, uniformz and cheap advertising. With the home environment and TV production values so high that is myopic.
Spending $40+ million on a rowing facility and telling everyone in attendance at an overpriced tomato can opponent probably isn't a way to make friends.

The University of Michigan is not a corporation to most of the people that care the most about it. "Building a brand" is not something he appears to be very good at, and it continues to be at odds with the university part. He's alienating current students (horribly implemented general admission), loyal supporters (increasing PSDs, dynamic pricing, selling home games to Jerry Jones, etc.), and making himiself too much of a public figure, IME.
I don't like what he does or what he says, and I wish there were someone else as AD of my university.

Why is this tweet from the future? Also his scheduled visit is with the Commish according to the above rivals link..
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Right.||
They had less yards, less than 1/2 the first downs, a +1 TO advantage and it came down to a last second FG try.
If only they had Michigan FG firedrill coaching. That is the only thing we're good at.
EDIT: Forgot the LOL.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Against PSU (wins over ILL||
Against PSU (wins over ILL and PUR), NEB (@home and a team that almost lost to a Wyoming team, which gave up 80 today), and Iowa (with a +3!!! TO margin).
|3 weeks 4 days ago||UCLA over NEB. NW and OSU||
UCLA over NEB. NW and OSU over 1-10 CAL (Cal scored 30 and 34 points in those games, respectively). ASU over WIS. Wash over ILL.
So... better than the B1G.

If I didn't live in Michigan, I would volunteer for his campaign.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||BUT!||
They're not playing MANBALL! It's not honest football.
It's win-at-all-costs football. I feel more manly losing the way we do.

|4 weeks 4 days ago||Nope.||
Borges was awful. PA didn't fool anyone. NW defense is not good. Zero TDs without a 3rd down conversion in regulation..."not THAT bad"?

Where are those fans coming from?
Seriously? The rest of Crisler isn't more than half full for those filler games either.
I understand that now they can sell those tickets and make more money, but the point has been made above that you can build a relationship with future alumni, and in the lean years you can expect a more faithful fan base.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||That TO Graph.||
That's a per game average over an entire season. Don't really think it's that applicable to a single game. If you finish with a -24 TO margin, what would you expect to happen? That graph has a team with a -6 TO margin finishing with 10 wins.

Agreed. He definitely grabbed Butt like Robin Thicke.

Considering that Nike sponsors 66+% of FBS schools that statement doesn't mean much. Additionally, only 14 schools from the B1G, SEC, PAC12, and BXII are sponsored by shoe co's other than Nike.
Also, also.. the teams not sponsored by Nike aren't, in general, those who are very good at recruiting. Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Florida, Gerogia, LSU, OSU, etc. are all Nike.

Three-way, as first reported @WEEI (Boston)
Peavy (to BOS), Iglesias (to DET) and A. Garcia (to CHW).

If that's all you saw, watch it again. Watch the refs. It's magic!

Signed up 4 years ago... Student house location... Shopping for a $1500+ TV... He doesn't live there anymore.
EDIT:Guess I should add something. Owner of 2 plasmas. Panasonic most recently.

Only 11/13 scholarships spoken for next season. I'd say that means at least 1 year of paying no tuition.

Data is from 1994-2003.

|38 weeks 6 days ago||Butler?||
What exactly did Butler handle well when losing by 32? Was it another team you were remembering? Mizzou gives me hope playing them in the second game in 2 days, but they got beat down the day before by another pressing team (L'ville) that they had time to prep for.

Total compensation is $759,289 and their total budget is <$24 million for 2012-13.
|40 weeks 1 hour ago||Burke rest||
Burke was getting quite a bit of rest today. Spelled by Spike for 7 min and he was taking it pretty easy the last 5 min with the offense running through other guys for the first 25 seconds of the shot clock.

He was planning to do some of the drills he couldn't at the combine (e.g. bench and some throwing).
|40 weeks 1 day ago||30 min||
AFAIK it's always 30 min after the first game ends. I've been to quite a few. Drove way too far for the last one (Nashville was otherwise kinda fun)..

Winning in the BWW Bowl means you still lost more games.
