Good for Cano for getting so much money but how many of these huge contracts have to blow up in teams faces before they realize that they are a terrible idea?

Well so far this post has been up for about an hour without any issues. In addition, I remember one or two board posts about this topic last summer when the city initially filed and to my knowledge they weren't removed. Maybe, just maybe, we can handle this one...

Someone should type up the rules of redshirts and put it in the "useful stuff" section.

The Jags will almost certainly draft a QB this year but hopefully Chad can play well enough in the last few weeks to have a realistic shot at winning the starting job in training camp

I don't think there's anything wrong with going the extra mile to thank someone who donates tens of millions of dollars to the department. I think the real question is whether or not it needs to be either/or? I don't believe that it does and the AD would probably be well served if it created some sort of "fan engagement" team to repair some of these obviously damaged relationships.

It is clear that on his best day Hoke only tolerates the fans, but going out of his way to be antagonistic is uncalled for.

Seth, you say you self-UFR the games? Has any thought been given to publishing these? It would be interesting to see your take vs Brian's.

If OSU does indeed go undefeated they shouldn't get jumped by a one loss team. Personally, I long ago gave up the notion that the current system actually determines the best team. All of the AQ conferences agreed to participate in the program on equal footing and an undefeated school from an AQ conference shouldn't get jumped by a one-loss school.

Moeller was gone way before MSC got hired.

Given Michigan's road struggles I would like to see a game played in an actual neutral site so they might actually win.

SBNation's Alabama site has been running a weekly feature called "Who Needs a Blog Poll" where they rank the top 25 teams and invite comments in the same format as the blog poll. The first entry says that the poll has been nixed for this year but declares that they will soldier on anyway.
Here's the link to the most recent article: http://www.rollbamaroll.com/2013/10/20/4859002/who-needs-a-blog-poll-week-8-wtf-just-happened#comments
So yes it looks like the blog poll is dead for now but some are carrying on anyway.

Travel and economic restrictions between the US and Cuba go beyond Cuba's now defunct pro-sports policy.

How does the value of a scholarship affect where students go to school? The value of the scholarship could be 18K per year or 50K per year but that affects the AD not the students themselves since they're all going to be paying nothing.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Interesting Idea||
But the issue of how much exactly to pay student athletes is still a problem. If you pay them all a market wage some will be able to demand hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars that schools may or may not have. If it's a stipend similar to what the university pays other student employees then it is far to little to make all of the work worth their while and you still don't address the problem of boosters willing to pay far more money.

Yes this was my point. The Tigers have drawn the short straw in this situation. I'm not saying they can't overcome it but it'll be a challenge.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||I'm less worried about the||
I'm less worried about the low scoring games than I am about the fact that both Oakland and (barring an upset) Boston will have home field advantage. The Tigers have been very good at home this year but fairly mediocre on the road.

My guess is that people are reacting to the photo. If you showed me that photo and told me he was in 8th grade I would believe it.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
This is probably just an old photo
|12 weeks 50 min ago||Ticket Prices||
An easy way to rectify this issue would be to lower ticket prices. I don't have too much of an issue with dynamic pricing but the same argument that's used to increase ticket prices for high demand games could be used to lower prices for low demand games.

He ate at Quickie Burger and the Gandy Dancer, that's quite the study in contrasts.

I expect the 2015 class will grow and we will end up with more than 2 OL recruits. It's just so early at this point that the coaches don't want to get ahead of themselves.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Tickets||
Do you mean tickets to Ann Arbor or tickets to the game? The recruits get field passes which I think the school can issue to anyone at no cost so I doubt they ever have to pay to go to the game.

But if it's a home and home then the travel issues balance out since Stanford needs to fly east to play us for the other game

I would love to do a home and home with Stanford

It seems like Fitzgerald wants to be a NW guy for life but other coaches have been in similar situations and have left for various reasons. Rich Rod leaving West Virginia and Bielema leaving Wisconsin immediately come to mind. If Northwestern keeps paying his assistants competitive salaries and keeps their facilities up to par with the rest of the B1G he'll probably stay but if not I could see him going somewhere else.
