the Michigan Panthers. But even then I thought the name was bush league.

Saban ordered this statement, thus taking the pressure off himself.

Austin get role playing minutes in the future, but glad that he is dealing positively with the reality of the situation. Good for you Austin, you're correct in that you are so much more than just a basketball player.
|5 days 4 hours ago||The reason its not being shelved,||
is because Harbaugh truly believes it! He believes they are going to compete like warriors in each and every game and come out victorious. And when the players buy into this.....well, thats when we get to see a Stanford-like ground game control our opponents. I can't wait!

your birthday begets you get my firstborn.
|5 days 18 hours ago||My definition:||
While watching a game against a quality opponent, you experience at least 3 of the following emotions: despair, hope, sorrow, fist pumping joy, hair-pulling anger, blame-seeking, chest-thumping triumph.

Brian, Your basketball format is awesome! The NCAA tournament is great of course, but the regular season definitely needs a boost like this. The reguar season right now is basically seeding for the big dance....too many meaningless games! Of course, the bottom seven in your scenario play 3 weeks of REALLY meaningless games.
|6 days 14 min ago||Apples to oranges||
The NFL plays 16 games. How many times have we seen NFL teams rest regulars in meaningless late season games as they prepare for the playoffs. Exactly what you don't want in college football IMO.
|6 days 19 min ago||Legitimate||
is in the eyes of the beholder. A 2 loss SEC team that just lost the SEC championship game probably makes an 8 team playoff. WTF was the purpose of the SEC championship in this scenario? Seeding?
|6 days 17 hours ago||However....||
Eight would be okay if they eliminate the conference championship games. But we know thats not going to happen.
What I'd really like to see though......don't play the championship game on a freaking Monday night! Basketball does it out of necessity becasue the semifinals on Saturday just makes too much sense. So football follows suit becausue...why? The NCAA needs to work out a deal with the NFL to get a time slot on a Saturday for the championship game. If not, maybe Friday night works too.
|6 days 17 hours ago||Leave it at 4||
If you go to eight you'll have a bunch of conference championship game losers still in the mix. That shouldn't happen. I also agree that a bye is too big of a reward for the top 2 in a six team field.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Eight teams||
are too many. I don't want to see 2 loss teams playing. The college football regular season is unique to sports and I'd never want to see the last couple weeks turn into mainly playing for seedings.

Yeh I know its only fast food, but watching the empolyees behind the counter argue and insult each other was really awkward. Couple that with slow service and cold food and I haven't been back to a BK in over five years now.

They ousted my school from GR in the quarterfinals I believe. Rice wth the laser beam jumpers and Rison with the toma-hawk dunk.

The 76-77 season. The year Michigan football stold my heart. Also the first of three straight years of Rose Bowl losses. As soon as the game concluded my mom would yell, "Your Christmas vacation is over, school starts tomorrow so get to bed!" It seems it happened exactly this way each of those three years. Talk about a double dong punch to a 10 year old.

Is their any other answer?

If the Dolphns "let" us have Harbaugh, I'll gladly give up Suh in return!
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Watched the Massillon||
Watched the Massillon documentary on Netflix last night. It was about the 1999 team I believe. My jaw almost hit the floor when it was revealed that Massillon, across-the-board, "red-shirted" or held back the entire football team for a year after they would complete 8th grade. I'll just go out on a limb and assume that current day media scrutiny has ending that practice. Can anyone confirm this? Could not believe it! Your entire team is on average a year older than your competition, and you beat yor chest after victories and championships? Lame!
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Gotta disagree. I believe||
Gotta disagree. I believe traditional powers in particular benefit by playing in large away game markets. The local stud recruits get a easy trip to check out the program. Just because our recruiting is good now doesn't mean it can't get even better through more exposure.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||I'm just saying, if I'm a||
I'm just saying, if I'm a traditional power like Nebraska, I'd be a little upset that UofM and OSU get a whole bunch of extra exposure in large east coast markets due to Big Ten scheduling.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||Geez.....Just glad we're in||
Geez.....Just glad we're in the East. Teams in the West will only get regular exposure in Chicago, as far as dense recruiting hotbeds go. Seems like the alignment heavily favors East teams from a recruiting standpoint...which....Yea for us!!! Wonder if Nebraska is pissed?
|2 years 37 weeks ago||yes||
I got one in high school. Learned my lesson and didn't get one in college. Waist of money IMO.

Following China left London with little hope for a memorable opening ceremony. I for one was not impressed with the queen/helicopter thing...not sure why everyone gushed over that....I guess old ladies get automatic points though.. Wondering why if the queen is so "with it" she can't muster up something resembling a slight smile from time to time. Also, the married couple and their house that played background for the musical hits from the past....very dumb and confusing.

agree about #72......"goober" looks like he has a helmet on for the first time in his life.
|3 years 38 weeks ago||seats||
Can I assume their will be more seats or bleachers going into the open areas along both sidelines? Maybe the bleachers are pushed in , although that seems kind of high schoolish.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||Two and a Half Men is one of||
Two and a Half Men is one of the only shows that can make me really laugh. Big Bang Theory......I'm just amazed it made it through its first season. Still can't believe it is still on the air.
|4 years 15 weeks ago||I was the under the||
I was the under the impression that Carr was pissed he wasn't able to name his own successor. (even though I have no idea who that would have been) I thought that was one reason why he gave RR the cold shoulder. Ideas?
|4 years 15 weeks ago||Yeah, you would have thought||
Yeah, you would have thought someone in the athletic administration would have started planning for a successor to Carr at least 3 or 4 years before he retired. Jim Harbaugh, a great former player and leader in your program, with 15 years experience as a pro QB, applies for the QB coach position and is turned down. WTF. Someone at the point, the AD, Carr or even Bo should have had the foresight to take advantage of that opportunity.
