|4 days 4 hours 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.
|5 days 5 hours 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.
|1 week 4 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.

But nobody will be paying for JRs education. So there's that.

I imagine he got the same speech every player will get, stay and work your ass off or transfer. No exceptions for any reason.

Giving my vote to BB as well. Classic.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||You make $25 an hour and "$20||
You make $25 an hour and "$20 is $20".. so it takes you 48 minutes to do these gay things you get paid for?
sorry, I read this post WAY to closely.....

I have to question your sarcasm detector. It's clearly broke.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Are they going to stay at||
Are they going to stay at their current job for 1/4 of what Harbaugh was offered because they are insulted by being offered only 1/2 of wht Harbaugh was offered.. If so they were not smart enough to be our coach anyway.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||We'll pay 48 mil for a coach||
We'll pay 48 mil for a coach but not 50K for ipads if he wants them?? Lokk at it this way... any team that has ipads will have OLDER ones than our when jimmy rolls onto campus.. Yay us!!
Schefter is a moron.. no doubt.

Yup. So it's not Adidas it's Michigan. Maybe now that the circus leader is gone, the clown uni's will be gone too.

Love to rep any of the schools from the Muck.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Really? Isn't that their||
Really? Isn't that their job? To know something about the sports that they talk about? Do they need to know the 2 deep of every program? No, but how about the final four teams.. and oh I don't know.. the team that they are currently talking about. The winningest program in history that is currently in the middle of a coaching search that is being talked about daily all over the country... 3 minutes of show prep would have given them 50X the knowledge than they were clearly dealing with. I would love to walk into a meeting and talk about the Ford Focus pickup truck.. and after my boss would say, its an honest mistake, there are really a lot of vehicles on the market. You can't be expected to know about all of them.

I am going to start an "official" University of Michigan, thank you evenyoubrutus thread. I speak for all of Mgoblogosphere and the entire universe for that matter when I say we owe you... everything. Thanks fo being you.

"before the season"
Agree with everyone that this is pretty dumb at this point. But I would go Ryan and Gardner. I can't wait for next Sept.. that will be the first time in a long time all the goofiness stops... god willing.
|8 weeks 7 hours ago||well, start with BB's first 4||
well, start with BB's first 4 years as a head coach in the NFL, and go from there. Or his last 4 years and go from there. The only way you don't conclude that they are on the same teir is if you cherry pick a four year stretch that ended 10 years ago. Funny that those were also in the same stretch of years that "arguably" the greatest QB in football history was in his prime.
Just to be clear, I think Belichick is the best coach in football, but I think right now, today, there is a great argument that he has company at the top.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Isn't the committee supposed||
Isn't the committee supposed to pick the 4 best teams to play in the playoff? So if all we are doing is looking at SOS, quality wins, Quality losses.... then why not just have the computers pick it?
If you look at the fact that OSU was breaking in a new QB, who happens to be playing like a heisman contender at this point, I would argue that they look way better than FSU right now. I wish someone would have the balls to say 1. Bama, 2. Ore, 3. TCU 4. OSU
They look like the best 4 teams to me right now.. with maybe only MSU having an argument to get in there.. but we know they are not number 1.. the other three might be but since the SEC won't play anyone OOC, its tough to tell where to slot them.

If your music performances graded out at C level, but you kicked ass in your English (and other LSA type courses) what would happen to your standing in the Music School?
If you Kicked ass in your music performances, but your LSA type stuff graded out in the C range, what would happen?
My personal feeling is that is someone brings something to the table that raises the profile of the university (whether everyone agrees that it is an academic pursuit or not) then as long as they complete their coursework at an average clip, then the University is better off for having them enrolled. This would go for Athletics or Music or Art or any other skill one might have.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||he also hired a football||
he also hired a football coach that has won and won big at every place he has ever coached but 1. A coach that is currently winning big at a place that hasn't been good since the desert swarm D's of the late 80's early 90's. Martin seems to have been the only intelligent Alum around Michigan during his tenure.

Adidas wasn't his.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Just for the record, RR||
Just for the record, RR wanted Casteel to come to Michigan. THe AD did not. Because UM doesn't pay their coordinators that much.. because this is Michigan fergodsakes.
Of course now they do because they are attempting to support the current coach. Too bad he is really bad at coaching where the last one was actually very good at it.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||Hiring him was not a mistake,||
Hiring him was not a mistake, treating him like shit was a mistake. Supporting him because he was the coach at the University of Michigan was the right thing to do.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||I love all the ideas that you||
I love all the ideas that you have offered up to effect change in the Athletics department.. I can't believe that they won't work better than a couple play boycott.
I support change with no boycott, I support change with no dismal records, I support change with no free tickets for coke, I support change with no concussed players playing for my team. Unfortunately no change is happening. Some people have come up with a way that will fully demonstrate their displeasure. If someone had offered up another idea that would "hurt the players" less, i am sure it would have been considered. Since nobody has and the University has done NOTHING to address the concerns of the masses... so... you will have some people demonstrating. And in my opinion, good for them.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||I agree, but then.. you||
I agree, but then.. you know... Don't say anything. Just quietly go about the business of trying to fix it.
That is what I am doing with the only avenue open to me as an alumn, fan, donor. I have expressed my displeasure with the current state of the Athletic Department and Football Program to the relevant people not even on twitter, just directly to them. Nothing more I can really do. So I come here to vent.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||At some point I would look at||
At some point I would look at myself and ask the tough questions. DO I really suck this bad? Why do I really suck this bad? Is it all me? Am I being let down with the instruction that I am getting? I think in the end, you ARE allowed to wonder as a player if you are getting propper instruction regardless of how much you like your head coach. I do not see what the fans are doing as anything different than that.
To demand a certain level of performance is not by definition "turning your back" on anyone.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Neither is being a player.||
Neither is being a player. Or an ex player. Didn't we have this argument about 4-7 years ago. How'd that turn out?

Treating a coach like a leper before he ever sets foot on campus....... never forget.
