|13 hours 16 min ago||the athletics department pays all scholarships||
out of athletic department revenues, which come from 3 major sources:
1. football/hoops ticket sales
2. tv revenues
3. donations (including the PSD).
Michigan income/sales tax, a small portion of which does eventually make its way to UM, is not used to pay for athletic scholarships.
|1 day 11 hours ago||starting with the fact that the current team||
is a pale imitation of the teams on the ice from 1996-2000.
Bring back teams that good and your home ice advantage would come right back, too.
|2 days 12 hours ago||He isn't playing||
because he's injured, and Michigan won't say anything about injured players unless they've been ruled out for the season.
There's nothing in that story that would impact his college eligibility.
|2 days 13 hours ago||and it was emailed to AAUM members yesterday||
so even less digging was needed.
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm pretty sure that||
to get to three, he is including Bryant in that number.
Remember it is how Hoke was getting from 12 spots to 15.

Oklahoma has worn alternates over the years, including as recently as 3 weeks ago.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Witness testimony is enough||
Witness testimony is enough to convict someone of any kind of crime but you think it ought to be harder in rape cases? The testimony from the victim is evidence that an assault took place.
|3 weeks 12 hours ago||because||
they don't pay that much for the soccer rights.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||even with the aberration of the 6-6 season||
he had a great record.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I suspect the point was that||
he should have executed on his pass rush on the play before, because as great as blocking an extra point following an 80 yard TD pass is, it's much better to sack the QB and prevent the 80-yard TD.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Congrats||
logic like this is going to lead to much more heavy-handed moderation in the future. If people are going to say that Brian endorses every post on here that isn't deleted, get ready for moderation that will be as bad as it was at GBW during the RR days.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||if the players don't get angry||
when their teammates get blown up on disgraceful cheap shots, I'm not sure they have the ability to get angry about anything.
The next time they show any anger will be the first time all season.
|4 weeks 15 hours ago||RR's assistants||
were the highest-paid staff UM has ever had, and the salary pool for them was specifically negotiated by RR and was written into his contract.
When Jeff Casteel balked because WVU offered him a raise, RR decided not to ask for more money at the very same time he was asking for, and getting, a million dollars for new weight room equipment at Schmebechler Hall. Shift a few of those dollars to Casteel, and who knows? Maybe the story would have been very different for RR in Ann Arbor.
|4 weeks 15 hours ago||Cleary||
doesn't know what the AD has done to fans. He only knows how the AD treats him.
And I bet the AD treats him and his teammates better than many fans have been treating them the last two years.
That said, this sort of thing doesn't do any good. In about 10 years Cleary will understand that.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Morris is gonna be out for a while||
so now the backup is Bellomy. I don't think anyone will be clamoring for him...
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Sumlin was 5-7 in 2010||
Michigan interviewed him and could have had him.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Texas didn't go looking for a "Texas Man"||
but was nevertheless turned down by just about every coach in America before they got Strong.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||what the rule doesn't say||
is whether, or when, an official should call an injury timeout for a player who appears to be hurt but remains on his feet. Remember that if they call an injury timeout for the QB he has to come out of the game.
They really ought to put some stuff in that rule saying when an official should call an injury timeout short of the player going to the ground. Traditionally, the officials have rarely done that.
|6 weeks 13 hours ago||season tickets||
are never going to be the cheapest way to get tickets unless you're following a team with an insane fanbase.
As a season ticket holder, I'm happy to see them do everything they can to fill the empty seats.
|6 weeks 15 hours ago||Hating a tribute to||
Michigan's School of Aeronautics and some of the planes that have helped protect freedom over the last century?
What a totally bizarre point of view. No other word for it.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||As long as they're getting to the line||
with 20 seconds on the play clock, I don't really care how quickly the run the play from then. That gives plenty of time to read the defense and change the play if need be.
It seemed to me that they were getting to the line with 20 seconds on the play clock a lot more often Saturday than they had been the first two weeks.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Those rules were thrown out in 1983||
When the NCAA lost an antitrust lawsuit brought by Oklahoma and Georgia. Back then every school thought it was going to be able to sell its games on pay-per-view; what shook out was not quite that.
Up to 1983, the NCAA made the college football TV contracts, which limited the number of times any one team could be on TV.
Of course, ESPN, with its desperate need to fill all the airtime it had, didn't exist until 1981.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||wifi was experimental last year||
and evidently the experiment didn't go well.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Verizon cell coverage is light years better||
Had no problem with texts and phone calls even at halftime. Even the pictures I sent out by text got through on the first try.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||if the people who run this place||
prefer snark to meaningful discussion how can you expect any better on the MGoBoard?
|8 weeks 1 day ago||The same company owns the NBC affiliate in Indy||
and the CBS affiliate in Columbus. It's no accident that DirecTV is having issues with both of them at the same time.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||This is a Directv issue||
DISH customers aren't affected.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Considering that the only||
Considering that the only reason any reporter would ask whether Morgan would play is if he is hurt you're being far too literal in your efforts to take offense at Coach Hoke.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Hope Sparty is in shape||
forecast is for the upper 90s on Saturday in Eugene.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||UM has the right to say no||
to adidas. Other than the money, that was the big difference with what Nike had proposed in 2007. Nike didn't want to give UM the right to say no to what they came up with. UM folks have actually been involved with adidas in designing most of the alternate unis the last few years. Jake Ryan's non-reaction to the UTL3 unis, which some folks trumpeted as meaning he didn't like them, turned out to be him wanting to see how others reacted...because he helped design them.
