Kids these days... smh.

So simple, yet so difficult for some to wrap their head around it.
5 play at a time in bball (10-12 total), 24 (O-D-ST) in Football (50-60 total?).
#1 BB will have a bigger impact.. its math.

We had a different athletic director then. Brandon let or made adidas do everything they did.

That is true for most every apparel company... School has right of last refusal.

Ding Ding Ding... Holland can go any time he wants. There is not enough time in a day to list out all his bad moves over the last 4-5 years.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||No offense, but 250 people||
No offense, but 250 people signed the petition to stop the movie... and eventually failed to stop it at all. Not sure how that says anything about the behavior of 110,000 people at a football game. Further, I would be willing to bet a very small % of those 250 even attend games.
FWIW, the most important issue in this whole damn thing is censorship is bad. period.

Dude was an absolute beast in the pool. And was short by swimming standards, which was cool to see for an average sized dude.

Maize was gone long before nike was.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Everyone does understand that||
Everyone does understand that nothing made it onto the field/court that was not approved by UM first.. right? The Ugly shit is not an adidas issue it was a UM marketing BS issue.
Can't wait for our first fugly ass pro combat unis. Yeah, and we won't even make nike break the bank to do it.

Bown and it's not even close. Brown is do or die this month, Gary has a lot of time.

Can someone explain the Diag Squirrel Reference?

Make sure her official recruiting trip is after Memorial Day.. Good luck.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Someone post the otter.. a||
Someone post the otter.. a million times, if this happens. And I am a wings fan. Having an underachieving hockey team hurts my soul.

Cowley's in Farmington is good. Live music all the time. I live on the other side of town, so I only get over there ocassionally.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||I guess the Paramus coach||
I guess the Paramus coach would be one thing. He has a relationship to the #1 DT in the country for 2016.. but a grad transfer who will be a back up or nickle DB.. for 1 year. She must be qualified, because otherwise thats a horrible hire just to land that dude. and I don't buy Harbaugh doing stupid stuff. If he was looking to gain an advantage with a recruit, I am sure that Eason (insert actual highly rated HS recruit here) has a relative with a pulse that needs a job.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||All you have to do is read||
All you have to do is read down the board and there is a thread about a kid pushed out at Louisville, and some manner of discussion on oversigning. All dirty recruiting tactics most of which have nothing to do with UM. This would be a board topic even if it wasn't OSU and Weber. Shoot, I am here commenting and I want nothing to do with Weber.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Just for the record, he||
Just for the record, he tweeted that he was unhappy.
I do agree with you that it is a slippery slope. Still the commitment should not be one way.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Weber was not sold a bill of||
Weber was not sold a bill of goods. He chose to believe a man with a very public track record of being a liar and a douche. Sounds like he got exactly what he was sold. At some point maybe kids or their parents will care about the bigger picture before it directly effects them, but more likely they will continue to go were the cash and/or the trophys currently reside. The names that have popped up around signing day are the names that have popped up every year. yet OSU (et. al.) already has top kids signed on for next year. Go figure.
Nothing (new) to see here. Move along.

Worst kept secret in recruiting history.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||My take on some of these||
My take on some of these visits...
UM: "we are waiting on a kid who plays your position who is committed to another school and (we want him more) or (first one to bite gets the spot) or (some other slightly non commital statement)"
Kid: "so I don't have a guaranteed spot?"
UM: "not exactly"
Kid's current school "go and we might just axe you"
Kid: "What happens if my UM spot gets taken..?"
Kid's current school: "NMP"
Kid: "Mr. Harbaugh sir.. I think I will stick with my current school.. thanks anyway"

I can't imagine that Harbaugh is horribly upset by this.

I... can't... stop... watching....
|13 weeks 5 days ago||First ever double post||
Maybe I shouldn't have gotten into UM..
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I think he was more trying to||
I think he was more trying to let the kid know the great opportunity that he was being given. If you can use a skill to get you into a great university that you would not otherwise be accepted into why not use it. No sense in using that skill to get you into a school that any schmuck can get into like osu. Kid just took it way wrong, his old man took it wrong and in hindsight, maybe that says something about the kid and his old man.
Lots and lots of very very smart kids don't get into UM, so... yeah, it means the coaches are calling you stupid. SMH
|14 weeks 3 days ago||I think Magnus was commenting||
I think Magnus was commenting on the NCAA rule moreso than if UM specifically gives discounts to children of employees, as it is clear that they do not. **if** they did it would count against the 85 limit.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||This is why there should only||
This is why there should only be one week before the superbowl. Way too much time for nonsense.
BTW, I would be embarrassed if I was the Ravens or Colts. Excuses (especially weak ones) are for losers.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||4 teams will have Zero extra||
4 teams will have Zero extra games. 2 teams will have 1 extra game. and 2 teams will have 2 extra games. this is not a whole lot of extra games or a whole lot of time that the players will miss playing school.
And who would go? I think you would need to have first round games in non traditional bowl areas. (I would prefer a late regular season game as the first round on campus) but even if you had round 1 prior to xmas in Seattle, St Louis, Detroit, NY for instance... that would sell, then you can move south to tradition bowl places. and only have 3 games left to sell.
These are not insurmountable problems.

Not sure why I laughed so hard about this, but I did. +1 to you for being so observant.
