Mine are $15 at the local barber. The haircut is better and faster than other bin name places I have been - and no, it's not a crew cut. He will aslo sell you darts and regrip your golf clubs. BONUS - he is a short walk from the bakery!
|5 days 11 hours ago||John U Bacon||
John U Bacon talks about not turning a one day story into a three day story - or in this case a one 3 month storu into a three year story. It's also like financial reportting - if yoiu are going to have a bad quarter try to move everything bad you can into that quarter.
It would be wise of MSU to bring everything forward, clean it up and take whatever PR, NCAA and legal hits they need at one time. You can see what happens when you dribble it out over time like PSU and Baylor. Don't try to hide shit - bring to light whatever you need to - no coverups. If that means more coaching retirements then so be it.

Bail the boat?

"life is but a dream"
I would love it to get everyone in the big house singing " row, row, row your boat gently down the stream.." when MN comes to town with Fleck.

I would be more afraid of the woodchipper sound than the VT turkey gobble for sure.

Glen Mason's hot wife needs to weigh in on this subject.

Then I guess they won't be hiring their favorite son from Pitt. Narduzzi will be stained as well. Good thing Fleck is at Minn.

My kids can't read maps due to GPS - can't might be s strong word, but they have never needed to use maps. I'm so dependent on my phone GPS that I don't even write down my hotel address or look at a map. I often have no real sense where I am relative to the airport once I hit the hotel when traveling. I just use the GPS crutch to get around based upon what's in my calendar.
I could see us being incapable of driving in a few years. If someone were to take out the autonomous system - we would all starve - hey what a great idea for a dystopian novel!

He is usually a jackass standing on the court at all arenas - but it this rare case he was off the court.

I thought it was called behind the Green Door?

Yes, I hope he recovers fully. He is a really good coach!
|1 week 5 days ago||if instate start selling GVSU||
Look at the academics, GVSU is pretty close to MSU and is pretty nice place. Many of their schools are downtown GR, engineering for example which is much cooler than EL.

With title nine I doubt it. With Dr Nasser being a problem this may be outside of MD's get out of jail card.

For Harbaugh see Tom Crean.

I wake up with the wind monster every day. I am getting old.

That was me. But is was just an exterior. I was just as creepy as all the other teenage males.

When you pull a Ghoul reference you know you are old. I had his t-shirt and I think a black light poster.

I am guessing we will have some great RB grad assistants. They often provide great coaching. We had Will Carr helping with the defensive line recently.

If you look back at some of Brian's content back in the day I think he was impressed with Frey
|4 weeks 9 hours ago||Good point - "follow the money"||
This is how they got Capone and much of the Mafia. I'm sure the dollars are just too small but prosecuring a couple of cases would be interesting.
The Bagmen could do it legally by recording them as "gifts" or by doing a 1099 and the player would have to report the income. None of which would be the purview of the NCAA. So you could pay players legally but under the NCAA table unless the NCAA required players to report outside income to be eligible..
|4 weeks 9 hours ago||Actually what we need is||
If you want to stop it do like they did with Al Capone - go after the players for tax evasion. Pipe dream in that it would take manpower to chase small dollars and I'm sure no one would be happy with that tact, but it would deter the bagman.
Maybe we could go after the bagmen for not providing 1099's but I guess they could call up to $10k a year per bagman gifts.
Let's enact a bounty hunter program where you get a cut of the tax money recovered. Kidding!
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||Years ago||
Years ago football players were provided jobs by both boosters and the university to do work that was not very taxing. I'm sure that is still occuring, not exactly bagmen.
We could mitigate this by paying a larger stipend, but bagmen will always find a way to pay more. Minor league pro football might be a better way to solve the problem.
Both probably impossible at this point.

I know the Business School has classes in LA and DC as well as India. Not sure how they are categorized.

B1G 11-3 for ban also, so not just SEC.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Betting on Maryland||
Betting on Maryland, they have the money and need the exposure. Wisconsin are cheap fucks.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Disruptors||
It's interesting watching the status quo fight disruptors like Harbaugh. Examples include cities banning Uber (to protect entrenched taxi services) and the State of Michigan banning Tesla from selling in Michigan without brick and mortar dealerships (to protect the domestic makers). Usually the disruptors win but it can be a back an forth fight.
The NCAA is a political entity that keeps passing rules/laws to keep power and to serve special interests. I don't see a way around it unless we can somehow find a NCAA alternative. As long as the special interests (SEC and Power 5 cheapskates) continue to protect their turf we will always be in their crosshairs.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||B1G 11-3 for the ban||
Who voted for besides Michigan?
OSU, PSU maybe Maryland?
