1. I didn't say he did/ didn't deserve money, it's a theoretical.
2. If you think you're going to create a system where people are paid based on how much you "feel" they should earn than I think you're going to have a bad time.

Assuming it was a legal and transparent bidding process, what would be the free market value of a guy like Rashan? How much $ would you be comfotable Michigan offering him?

I had a boss a few years ago, a UW alum, who challenged me to a fight in the office. An odd bunch, they are.

Jim Harbaugh is an immensely talented, extremely hard-working, ultra-competitive, down-to-earth dude. He's not a genius and he's not crazy. But hey, that narrative isn't as interesting and doesn't generate clicks.

Interesting that someone seems to have disagreed with you. It really doesn't require discussion. Chemistry concerns? Please. These guys have played together for a long time now. We need Caris back, and with the improved play from so many players while he's been out, this team is dangerous.

"diversity, fairness, inclusion, enhancement" Yeah man, sounds like straight up oppression!
Sometimes a thing is not a "ploy" or a "buzzword", it's an attempt to make things better than when you found it.

Eh. I think it would've been more fun to keep running with the OP's joke, kind of making fun of ourselves (Michigan fans) as being uptight rule-followers and unable to take anything lightly.
But hey, if downvoting one of our own into oblivion is what you'd rather do, be my guest.

You do realize he realizes it's satire, right? The comments in this post read like an old dude circlejerk.

"Targeting and Initiating Contact to Head or Neck Area of a Defenseless Player (Rule 9-1-4)
No player shall target and initiate contact to the head or neck area of a defenseless opponent with the helmet, forearm, fist, elbow or shoulder. When in question, it is a foul. (Rule 2-27-14)"
But I'll grant you that apparently "ass tackle" is not prohibited.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Ah, the seldom used but||
Ah, the seldom used but always feared "ass-tackle". That doesn't mean it wasn't a hit to the head.
That angle also makes it clearer to me that he intended to use his shoulder, but missed. Again though, we're guessing at split-second intentions. "Targeting" is stupid. If it's a hit to the head, it's a hit to the head. The automatic 15 yard facemask rule took awhile to get used to, but now it seems completely normal.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||If it's too late for him to||
If it's too late for him to change his "tackling motion" (leading with the shoulder/helmet is not tackling) then why does his shoulder continue to drop and eventually crush Rudock's helmet?
I would argue that the above doesn't matter though. Remove the "trying to guess what the tacklers intent was" from the game. If you make shoulder to helmet or helmet to helmet contact it's an automatic penalty, just like facemask penalties. The ref's job is hard enough, the goal should be to make the calls simpler and safer.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Great stuff, as||
Great stuff, as always.
Disagree on the Rudock slide though. A hit to the head like that should be a penalty. Either the players learn to tackle properly or don't play the game. Helmets used to be about safety, now they just promote poor tackling.

Yo, check out who the PAC-12 coach of the year was in the year 2014. Go to a website called google and (still using your keyboard) ask that question.
I sincerely hope I never have to have a conversation with you or anyone remotely like you.

This is probably the dumbest comment I've read in a long time. "No lives" and yet here you are commenting on a message board. Is the mom joke next??
The article is in the Detroit News, not exactly stalking bruh LMFAOROTFLGTFO.
Dave Brandon is a piece of shit and deserves every ounce of criticism Michigan fans give him, from here until he apologizes. We as fans aren't just qualified to judge him, it's our fucking responsibility.

You hear that all you extra people having heart attacks?? GoWings says you're lazy and you should get over it!
Cost-benefit analysis shows DST just isn't worth it. Keeping it around because "people aren't trying hard enough to get over it" is...not a good reason.

I don't understand your point. You're asking us to imagine a land where a Brady Hoke coached Michigan team is 8-0 and Dave Brandon is an asshole, but in reality they are not 8-0 and Dave Brandon is still an asshole.
