the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

The handfull of good teams with resources from the American, Mountain West, Conference USA, Mid-American Conference and Sun Belt conferences need to be assimilated into the big conferences with the rest dropping down to a lower division.

Really, Indiana and Maryland in November - not a draw.
I am sure they will still announce 100k+ but we might have to hire ILM to blue-screen in some fake fans in the empty sections.

Well I like where our BYEs sit (every silver lining has a touch of grey!).
One more week to prep for MSU another week for Ohio.
I am sure Ohio is bitching about their BYE placement. They get an extra week rest and prep for Maryland and Rutgers.

We will show that they can be beat this year.
Then they will get a BCS Bowl and get crushed by someone.
Yes! The plan is all coming together! It has been foreseen!
A loss to Michigan and a Bowl loss - I'm prematurely schadenfreudeing!
|1 week 3 days ago||Yeah, and really the||
Yeah, and really the anti-trust is against the NFL and NBA. If this suit wins this minor league will happen. Athletic scholorships will disappear. There is no way colleges are going to pay students. They could go all walkon and people would still go to games - it's the game experience (tailgating), traditions and University that is the draw - not the individual players.
Then, poor kids will have only the opportunity to live on a bus and get payed shit wages by a semi-pro team. A team with one quack doctor and crappy health insurance.
Then you rip your knee up and you are done - no degree.

CGI wasn't there - had to have a two large space fleets in realtime and in a computer simulation. It would have looked really fake 15 years ago.
Also, there is box office trend of "coming of age children in peril in battles" successes like Harry Potter and Hunger Games. Hollywood is all about jumping on trends like the 10 superhero movies every year.
|1 week 3 days ago||Totally agree. There are||
Totally agree. There are 444,000 student-athletes in America. A small fraction receive full rides.
If every player on every sport had to be paid that full ride that would be $27 billion a year just in scholarships. (444,000 x $63,500).
Right now: The NCAA research staff estimates that college athletics programs collectively spend about $10.5 billion annually.
So if everyone had to be "paid" just tuition on every team the expenses would go up 300%.
This would be impossible. And if Webber type players actually get paid their "true worth" of above a million a year (as they claim), how does that fit with title IX? It can't. College sports would revert to the pre-title IX days of only having men's football, basketball.
So the Sherman Antitrust Act is head to head opposed to Title IX.
Most atheletic programs already lose money:
Major-college athletics departments last year “increased the amount of money they generate" by nearly $385M, but “increased operational spending" by more than $665M, according to Berkowitz & Upton of USA TODAY. Only 23 of 228 public schools in NCAA Division I generated "enough money to pay for athletics, a figure basically unchanged for three consecutive years.” This marks the “fifth time in the last six years sports programs have added more to their annual operating expenses than they have to their revenue.”

Vodka Martini - poured - not shaken or stirred. A very dry, arid, barren, desiccated, veritable dustbowl of a martini.

Half the comments are "conspiracy" or we lose because of this suspension.
We lose because we are not that good is my point. A good, experinced team can take a crap penalty and not cough up another 4 goals. Eventually this team will have that maturity.

I am a huge life-long fan but this team is a rebuild project.
All I know is the wings have given up 12 goals in 3 games. Sorry, this is a losing recipe no matter what happened with Abdelkader.
They remind me of the early 90s wings - with Steve Y not yet mature and a lot of young potential.

Exactly, if it was Zetterburg (star) - no penalty no suspension.
Abdelkader second, third liner is 2 games.

When I was a kid, every announcer was Ufer-ed over with the radio except Keith jackson.
So both I guess. Most games Ufer, a big game with Jackson (like Rose Bowl). Ufer is better play by play but Jackson could setup the grandiosity like nobody else.

Last graph shows that mediocre coaches prepare better for opneing games because they need to get every possible win?
Then good coaches tend to overlook opening games (what me worry?) that leads to things like the horror?

You can't protect everyone from youthful bad decisions.
True story bro:
Had a cousin that got straight A's in architecture and then received an acceptance and scholarship from Harvard for a masters. He instead grew a beard, got married young and made handmade furniture for a few years before they had a baby and then figured how much things really cost.

That why they need to finish a degree. 99% of the 444,000 student-athletes will never make any money off the sport they play.
For Doughty to quit college to go pro - that was his risky call to forgo a free degree which is why he has no job.
Who said he couldn't slip and fall and rip a tendon while out jogging waiting for a team to call? Who's fault would it been then?

A baseball is 3" in diameter, so measuring the scale on my screen, her head would be nearly 7 1/2" wide (almost a foot if you count the hair). That's a big head - wider than mine and I am a 6'2" guy.
