hires assistants based on how "hot" their wives are, and admitted so in print.
Yeah, this guy can F off.
|2 days 20 min ago||One of many reasons||
I try not to get excited about 5 star QB's out of high school, feels like 50% of them never turn out the way people expect.
|2 days 25 min ago||"BIG"||
if you mean they played every year. Penn State dominated both programs post Joe Paterno arriving in happy valley. Most of Pitts wins came before PSU was much of anything in football.
other than a 10 year window in the late 70's early 80's when Pitt was competitive, it wasn't much to anyone outside Western Pa.
Likewise PSU/WV where the Mountaineers won all of 2 games against their "rivals" from 1955 on.
No one in college today has any recollection of these series since PSU/Pitt haven't played since 2000 and PSU/WVU haven't played since 1992.
PSU doesn't really have a "rival"(they can claim pitt, but sure ok whatever), which is why they went outside their core Northeast teams to try desperately to find tough competition like Alabama before they arrived in the BIg Ten. Also why they've been so desperate to start something with Michigan and Ohio State. Neither of which I call a rivalry, just good programs playing each other regularly.

is a lot of non-revenue. Its discounted advertising for Little Caesars.
|1 week 1 day ago||As someone who no longer||
knows every damn player in this ridiculous 14 team league, I actually enjoy getting to know the players, some of whom I will barely see in their 4 or 5 year cycle because a 14 team football league is dumb.
|1 week 1 day ago||Nameing rights||
for this stadium were a tricky subject for the Illitch's I'm sure. Gordie Howe Arena is what it should be. But in modern sports nameing rights is an important revenue for the teams or city that owns the stadium and for the payee an important tax proposition. There is no way this stadium was not going to have a crappy corporate name attached to it.
|1 week 2 days ago||I imagine||
the too many people from somewhere else plays in there, but in Miami they built an awful sterile football stadium in a terrible location and priced their fans out of the place. Then ran the franchise poorly driving away fans. The baseball team played in the same terrible stadium which was rigged terribly for baseball, then built a ridiculous stadium at tax payers expense while having twice fire sold their franchise future away because the owner is a douche. Who wants to be loyal to that?

|1 week 4 days ago||its very well done||
but I question the timing of this stuff being rehashed as if someone wants old wounds to be reopened at a time when our political and racial discorse is pretty low.
Anyway, the interviews were really interesting, the LA cops still do themselves no favors, feel badly for Marcia Clark because she never tried another case and retired a few years later after all of her personal days were used up. She was very good at her job but that case was such a shit show it ruined her career. Would like to have been in the room when Clark and Christopher Darden when they discussed trying on the glove. Clearly Darden went out on his own there and torpedoed their case.
To this day can't understand how the LAPD could mishandle evidence in such a manner to even present doubt.
|1 week 4 days ago||call me suspicious||
of the validity of this commit. Higher odds this is a decommitt and some SEC fan base laughs about "taking one from Harbaugh"
Hope he sticks, but not expecting it.
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||A couple things||
a quote in another article that I can't link for some reason says its was a great opportunity to start ASU from the ground up, vision for the program blew him away, opportunity to live in an area he and his wife loved was hard to pass up.
Funding: ASU's new contract with Adidas provids $4million of funding in addition to $1 million a donor gave to the program, and ASU will soon build a new tennis center.
Given the funding, my guess would be his pay check received a large and substantial increase over what Michigan probalby pays its tennis coach.
As you might imagine Pac12 tennis is super competitive. Sounds like an amazing opportunity, best of luck to him.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||State's going to play||
the "victim of the NCAA" game, pat the kids on the back, call them Spartan Dawgs forever Brah and bitch and win and complain about it all year long. Despite the fact they completely and utterly have screwed this up and mislead these young men all along.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||What a life||
this man leads.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I'll never understand||
why he left Florida. Had it all, in a perfect situation for him.
Weird to think that if Spurrier never leaves Floida, Meyer ends up at Notre Dame.
|3 weeks 23 hours ago||selling beer||
is just trying to monetize the already drunken nature of their fans. Really it will just allow "fans" to keep their buzz on during the game.
but yeah, oh holy god what have they done is about right.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Harbaugh hasn't even really||
won anything as he's so in peoples heads
|3 weeks 3 days ago||only||
when the opponent gets to the goal, which hahahahahahahaha
|3 weeks 4 days ago||all the dealer has to show||
is that they've made the same deal for a non-athlete and its available to all of their customers.
Not a violation.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Same reason||
a 20 year old Jumbo Elliot could be tooling around Ann Arbor in a brand new Cadillac
|3 weeks 6 days ago||nevermind||

|4 weeks 4 days ago||Well they expanded||
the field to 24 teams for this years tournament so that helped. But they ended up runner-up in their group so they may have still made a 16 team field.
For Qualifying they happen to be in the same group with a really down Denmark squad along with terrible Serbia and Armenia. They finished runner-up to Portugal and in fact won at Portugal to open qualifying.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Name hire||
but Mourinho's philosophy on how to win clashes with ManU's philosphy doesn't it?
ManU is a great gig, but right now the talent level and depth there is probably the lowest its been in the 16 or 17 years I've been following along.

seems like a cool idea.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Crisler hosted until 1989||
Then The Palace hosted for four years, Breslin hosted its first semi's and finals weekend in 1994. Breslin hosted some of the semi-final games but not the finals for the first couple years it was open.
The MHSAA home office was on Trowbridge Rd about two blocks away, it moved the finals to EL (mostly) for convenience and its central location. The MHSAA offices are still only a couple miles further North in EL.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I'm as homer Michigan fan||
as anyone but the Breslin is the perfect location for the MHSAA finals being centrally located in the state and can handle those rare games that everyone wants to see. I'd much rather have them in EL than AA.
The only thing I wish would happen is a separate floor without the Spartan logos for the MHSAA.
