"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.

who is the NCAA to say what is or is not fair value? The market is determined by what someone will pay, if someone wants to pay $10k for a $500 couch then it's a $10,000 couch. What you're basically saying is that a college athlete can sell anything they want so long as they're not making enough money to actually live on that income, which is bullshit infringement of their right to make a living, which courts incidentally hold to be a protected constitutional right.

Yes, I remember that time that Mary Sue Coleman and highly regarded professor of the classics David Potter forced RR to lose to Purdue. Never underestimate the full resources of the university!

the helmet sticker placement is way less awkward than the first name on the jersey

yep, and on BamaGoBlog or whatever most people will tell you that ESPN is biased toward the B1G.

Yes, I think this assumes we lose to OSU and they go to the playoff and we go to the Rose Bowl... which would be an interesting start as that was more or less where we left off in 2006.

HAS ANYONE MADE A JOKE IMPLYING THAT THE LIONS ARE NOT A REAL NFL TEAM YET
*faints dead away*
|6 days 11 hours ago||Because it speaks to||
Because it speaks to Detroit's preparedness that the NFL uses it as the exclusive go-to when games have to be moved... not only the confidence in the staff and the facility but also the ability to get 70,000 people to watch these games on zero notice.
|1 week 13 hours ago||I really have no idea what||
I really have no idea what you thought I meant... it appears to me that people think "dead" is an insult instead of, like, a fact.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Seriously, I don't know why||
Seriously, I don't know why people keep suggesting that the game be played in some random ass east coast location like Pittsburgh... DC area fans are going to be more concerned with hunkering down than travelling to the game, relative closeness to the Maryland campus is irrelevant. College football is not the NFL, either, where you could probably get 75,000 people to watch the Jags play the Titans on a Friday morning, nobody in Pittsburgh gives a shit about this game. Detroit is obviously not a neutral site, but it is the only place with the experience and the interest level to take a relocated game like this on.

Is the way you took it "Bo Schembechler retired from coaching when I was 4 years old and I'm not entirely sure why his opinions on the relative merits of noon games should impact the way the program handles itself 9 years after his death"? Because if so that is exactly how I meant it... I can see liking noon games because they work better for your schedule or something, but BO LIKED THEM is just awful rationale for doing anything in 2015.
And you guys can fuck right off, I have a god damn Bo quote as my signature and have for the past 6 years on this board. I obviously didn't mean to disrespect the man, but he'd probably be the first to tell you that this reasoning is moronic, he didn't take his scheduling prefence cues from what Fritz Crisler wanted.

there is nothing I like more than having to wake up early in a Saturday to honor the arbitrary whims of a dead football coach
|1 week 1 day ago||Edsall did a pretty good job||
Edsall did a pretty good job at UConn and was a guy a lot of people were looking at when Maryland hired him... it was actually something of a get for them, people considered it a bit of a lateral move at that time.

Serious idea: Ford Field has hosted games on zero notice before very successfully and a sellout would be guaranteed.

I don't know... the way this season is breaking down an 8-4 ending, while nor surprising, would involve a let down type loss. I think everyone would understand losing to MSU and OSU at this point, Minnesota, NW or PSU less so.
|1 week 1 day ago||If Chip Kelly ends up flaming||
If Chip Kelly ends up flaming out, it will be a long time before anyone takes a shot on a spread coach from college, even one with Meyer's resume. If we were to chase him off (imo, this is a silly concept, I think his reasons for leaving Florida were way more complex than 'o no saban ahhh'), I think he'd simply retire young like many coaches before him and then live like a god in Columbus.
But like come on, did Bo chase Woody off?

depends largely on how the SEC breaks down... only one conference is getting 3 NY6 teams. If we lose to MSU and OSU, that puts one in the playoffs and one in the Rose Bowl. I could certainly see us playing a G5 school out in the Fiesta if things break this way, but it depends on one of Georgia/LSU/Bama not being in contention for an NY6 bowl.
|1 week 1 day ago||his entire offensive system||
his entire offensive system would have to be reformulated for that transiton to work, he's not Steve Spurrier.
|1 week 1 day ago||and, you know, the autonomy||
and, you know, the autonomy of the AD was well established by the time Brandon came into the fold and MSC's actual personal interest in the goings on there were low. She is guilty of finding an AD she had a rapport with and staying loyal to him when shit she didn't really understand started hitting the fan.
She's running a massive research institution, three large university campuses, a large regional health center, etc. Do you honestly expect that she gives any shits about you having to pay for water inside a football stadium? Because the really awful shit with Brandon happened after her time.

a lesson in misplaced priorities from the person judging a university president based on football results.

to the people whose opinion she probably cares about, it won't have any impact whatsoever.

you'd think as a fanbase we'd have grown wary of these September declarations of being back on the basis of one game against a religious school. I mean, I don't want to shit on the parade here but it's not like we've never been here before in the past 8 years.
|1 week 2 days ago||Meh, it's actually probably||
Meh, it's actually probably the most likely place he would bolt for all things considered... his own personal ties to the city and the franchise, his connection with Luck. Indy is the kind of place that Jim would probably be pretty okay with raising his kids based on comments he's made.
It's more the whole abandoning his kids after one year thing (I don't think Jim's friends or family would just say "fuck off" if he left Michigan, they're his friends and his family).
|1 week 2 days ago||because there is literally||
because there is literally nothing to say about this topic anymore
he's either going to stay or leave. That's it. There's nothing more to it. There will be rumors after every season, there's nothing new to talk about. It just turns into a gigantic circle jerk in which people make hilariously specious claims about the value or popularity of the NFL (unsurprising for a board primarily made up of Lions and Browns fans, but I digress).
If Jim is here for 1, 3, 5, 10, 25 years, nothing we or any third rate NFL hack or JUB or Brian Cook says is going to change that. I don't believe Jim Harbaugh lacks character and leaving after one season is a move that indicates low character to me... I don't think he'd leave Michigan without completing a full class cycle here and leaving the school in a good place. So let's just focus on Maryland and stop giving twitter hacks attention.
|1 week 4 days ago||I think that fraud case would||
I think that fraud case would get thrown the fuck out when they actually looked into it and discovered that the University of Michigan is a single institution for legal purposes, that all graduates are considered graduates of the same institution, etc. I mean shit man, there is an integrated student ID structure that still lets UM-Flint and Dearborn students park in university lots in Ann Arbor (and used to let them in dorm rooms, until someone figured out that this was not the best idea). They all show up in the same directory. Misrepresentation? Sure. Fraud? No, not technically.
