The university does sepend untold millions on football and next to nothing in comparison on womens sports. As does every university.
I fully agree that men and women should get an equal number of scholarships, just dissagree with the way they seperate it by sport.
Women CHOSE not to play football, apart from the oddball kicker who is allowed to get a scholarship on the mens team anyway. And yet, Title IX says thats not fair. penalizing sports like mens crew, lacross untill recently, and many others because women naturally play fewer sports than men is unfair. Give women extra full ride academic scholarships in the ammount of additional male sports scholarships are given over the number of women and vice versa.
Its supposed to be about equal oportunity. But in the end i prevents more sports and scholarships than it helps imo.

Thanks for the insight into your character.

Take a step back from staring at the gnarled tree and look at the forest there SJW friend.

Harbaugh has demonstrated time and time again that he is willing to push the rules to their absolute limits. Satelite camps, sleepovers, "intent to decieve" plays. Could have been handeled better,no question, but i dont think you can clasify his hyper competitiveness as being shady. Let alone the comment about Beilein.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I agree, timing could have||
I agree, timing could have been better. Likely caused by a breakup in communication within the staff which they wont be able to own up to even if they want to. Im not ready to damn the program or call harbaugh recruiting shady over it like a majority of the board though.

If the tweet was the only response he made i would have agreed with calling him classy. Backhanded unverifiable onesided comments to a news outlet... not so much.

Personally i dont think a decommitment should be allowed from either party. But seeing as its used and in some cases abused by the recruits I understand the occasional occurance in the opposite direction.

Sucks for Swenson. Would have liked to see this handeled differently.
I think it's partially a result of the current state of athletes "commitments" these days that Brian mentioned. Stuff like this wont help make that go away though. That said, College Football is a business now adays. All parties are likely better off with the outcome happening now as opposed to any time in the next 4 years.
Having to say "I wish we did this 3 months ago to give him even more time to find a landing place" is a far cry from "I wish we didnt force out this kid before his scholarship finished"
Realistically, the only thing this changes for fans is their ability to claim the total moral high ground and help justify their distaste for the shady opposing teams.

From what i can gather ( and i will need to be fact checked on this, couldnt find the big ten rules online) the 3 backdated scholarships is only applicable to the 85 limit.
Meaning you can sign up to 88 scholarships at any time assuming by the next season you are down to 85. the 3 backdated does not apply to the 25 limit. so we ccan backdate all EE's and then sign up to an additional 25 players as long as we are under the 88.

I agree. Hope they swap out 10 yellow stickers for 1 blue sticker to keep the numbers down.

"Friend" of mine was super drunk. Sometime durring the first quarter he decided he needed to take a piss, so he decided to piss all over the bench in front of him and incidentally the legs of the people standing in front of us. Student section.

That's all understood. Though i tend to be a bit more realistic about the expectation is for the position stuff. I expect the backup (smith in this case most likely) to be servicable in case of season injury. But again, fall is a long way away.
|42 weeks 4 days ago||I'm reserving all judgement||
I'm reserving all judgement till the fall. But I also expect Issac to be the #1 RB. Hard to get too worried about the run game when one of the players is out with injury.

I am horrified untill proven otherwise in the fall.
It also stung to hear the announcers calling out seniors that I was expected to be sophmore/Juniors.

Would be happy with either 1 or 2.

Doesnt change my expectations. I think the teams overall progress under the new staff will have a much larger impact than one player.

It's identical to this board without the boxes around the text, no subject lines, and the ability to collapse replys. I can comiserate with the twitter confusion though.

"He wasn't there just to make you faster, but he was there to make you mentally tough," said Bennie Joppru, a former Michigan tight end who worked with Tolbert and Gittleson in college. "Kevin was a guy who was quiet, but you knew not to mess around with him too much, because he's really trying to make you puke.
"We thought, 'Oh, he's a speed guy, he'll be really nice. Let's go fast, it's going to be fun.' It wasn't anything like that. It was, 'I'm going to kick your (butt) and make you fast.' ... I think that's why you bring in a guy like that."

I like them. Love how they continue the helmet graphic onto the masks. Like the simple design outside of the shoulder graphic. I think the silver looks significantly better than any solid white uni that a school might wear. Its distinctly Oregon dispite not having the team colors.
I like the OSU ones as well. Again, simple, traditional, distinctly OSU.
I'll get off your lawn now.
