frequently lays off by seniority. Company I worked for lost a lot of good people laying off that way and kept a lot that should have been let go.
|18 hours 57 min ago||I was already pretty||
weened off the ESPN products by then but I tuned in to watch Sportscenter once a day, the Favre saga did it for me to.
So far other than Ed Werder I have no idea who any of the people who've been laid off are or what they did for ESPN. An ignorance is bliss kind of thing.
|19 hours 40 min ago||ESPN fails to realize||
it lost hundreds to thousands of viewers when they quit focusing on highlites and went to the constant talking drivel about the most inane non-sensical things.

thats not what lack of institutional control constitutes.

to the contrary, you have to be nuts to see that mans 40 year public history to think he's a good idea.

have worked wonders for me, we simply aren't outside enough anymore.
I have very few down periods when my D levels are in the normal range.

Memorial Stadium at IU has more seats between the goal lines than UM.
|6 days 17 hours ago||Been to roughly half||
Its between Illinois and MSU for me. I even like Dyche Stadium better than those two.
Tough question since I think a lot of your answer is going to depend on your fan experience at any of those places and the game atmosphere. I hated my trip to Illinois in the early 90's and have never wanted to go back, nothing special about the stadium, horrible fan experience and game atmosphere. MSU is a utility stadium reflecting its use rather than its flash, there's nothing really wrong with it other than some cosmetic things and a couple extra bathrooms wouldn't fix( which they are working on), campus setting is nice. But there are better stadiums and atmospheres in the Big Ten.
FWIW, old Ohio Stadium in the mid 80's was a shithole, with huge cracks and chunks of concrete missing from the exterior, broken windows in the dorm portion etc. The south end was a small section of open bleachers, nothing like today. There are still several thousand seats in the 'B' Deck that are the worst in the Big Ten. But I love The Game when its played there and the atmosphere, just part of the experience.

is really his only "success" as a CEO and much of that was not reflected in the stock price unitl after his departure.
What is a succesfull CEO someone who actually leads a company to newer heights of profitibility or someone who makes a lot of money for himself and his executives.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Tom Crean was||
a good hire from Marquette, a rising star in the coaching world. IU has simply done the exact same thing here. Hired another rising star from a less prestigious conference and handed him the keys to a big time program.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Honestly I consider||
Oklahoma State to be a better job than Illinois. Better rivalries, better facilities, T. Boone Pickens money. Something is up in Stillwater.

hosted the Midwest Regional Semi's in1988. That was the year Kansas and the fighting Danny Mannings won the title. Four teams there were Kansas, Purdue, Vanderbilt and Kansas State.
We were treated to an all Kansas QF game. Crowds over 30,000 both days, pretty fun weekend.

was the stupidest pick of all-time, everyone could see that would be a failure
|6 weeks 2 days ago||I think some people||
might have if the year before they had gone more like the 8-4 team they really were instead of absolutley pulling a playoff invitation out of their asses.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||MSU had a good beat writer||
that left to cover Tennessee last summer. It will be awhile before anyone steps in to replace those shoes. Couch is ok but he's just has some awful opinions and takes, I don't know anyone that looks forward to reading anything he writes.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||yeah Stoudt||
has been mailing it in for years. He's been at WILX for 40+ years, basically he's just putting in the hours to retirement. Barely does more the 6pm news cast anymore.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||The high of beating Kansas||
and Florida to the low of getting screwed against Louisville sucked pretty bad

I once had to win a match 5-0 after blowing the home leg 4-0 to Bronby in a Champions League quarterfinal on Football Manager like 2001 or something.
We won 7-2 on the night 7-6 on agg. Great night in Liverpool that one.

Team A confronts McDowell about his lack of motor in a condescending and rude way, player takes it personally and responds in a way the team doesn't like (aka "attitude")
Reporter goes to team A asks opinion on McDowell "awful interview, the worst", reporter thinks he has a huge story because its the fucking NFL combine where little to no news happens at all.

if large donor donations are used to pay the principal for these projects or is it placed in a trust with the investment revenue used to pay for the bonds?
Is this Michigan taking on increased debt now with the expectation of receiving large donations to help pay it down in the future.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||thats what was reported||
but coaches don't flip out at that being yelled at them. It had to be something much worse.

half the SEC was on probation. In my lifetime every SEC program has spent time on probation.

Totally a little brother rant.

at Holland High has done it at least 3 times this year. He was 1 point short of doing it in consecutive games.
Best part is he's something like 5'8, he'll play at Schoolcraft CC next year.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||more frustrating to me||
is no attempt is made to educate the public on why this happens the way it does
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Question would be||
and will always go unanswered, how swift would that response be if they didn't have a huge lawsuit with Dr. Nasser hanging over their heads.
