credential sharing for live sports events.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||watchESPN blacks out NFL on phones||
because the NFL Mobile app makes all games shown on Thursdays, Sunday nights, and Mondays available on it. But your service has to be through Verizon.
Same thing happens Sunday nights on the NBC Live Extra app. Blacked out on my phone but not on my ipad.

They flew right overhead.
|3 weeks 9 hours ago||Rarely remembered, but the pass to AC in 1979||
that won the Indiana game came on play action out of a two-back set.
Even Bo laughed at himself for that one.
Apparently that was the only play in the playbook that sent 3 receivers on medium/deep routes.

Unless he graduates by May.

they were just making it up to Sparty for having to play in Ann Arbor in 1967 and 1968.

This is an end zone angle that makes clear that the MSU player was not blocked into the long snapper.

and moving faster than it was predicted to move. <eyeroll>
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Yep, mgoblue2go app or||
just open the phone's web browser to mgoblue.com and click on the "live audio" link that will be on the front page.
I can confirm that the mgoblue2go app does not require the screen to be on once the audio is playing.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||If you watch the 1997 OSU-Michigan game||
they gave away pom-poms for that one too.
Maize-outs and the "Go Blue...Wear Maize" campaign ended several years ago.

the Athletic Department has an official relationship with StubHub for resale of season tickets, reporting those seat numbers to the athletic department will accomplish nothing but a waste of your time.

|12 weeks 1 day ago||I probably wouldn't wait until game day||
I'd call the Ticket Office today.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Bear Bryant and Barry Switzer||
In the 1970s both had outstanding records.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Alcoholism is a medical issue||
the fact that you've been busted for underage drinking, DUI, drunk in public or whatever, is not.

is a poster at Rivals who claims to be a friend of the family and says that he saw the text from Mone.

To be the overall (i.e. not sport-specific) twitter voice of the Athletic Department.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Michigan doesn't dictate what the providers||
put on these t-shirts. It just permits them to use Michigan's trademarks in exhange for a 10 percent royalty.
The fact that someone likes a wolverine on a t-shirt has nothing to do with whether UM is considering a mascot.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Went to a wedding in 1996 while the BC game was going on||
We'd beaten Colorado in Boulder the week before and were losing to BC in the rain when I had to go into the wedding. It wasn't for a couple hours that I found out we'd scored a couple times in the 4th quarter to pull it out.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||In years past||
Season tickets were mailed out on a rolling basis from Aug. 1-15. I typically got mine in Ohio around the start of the second week of August.
|19 weeks 2 days ago||Since when do people let the facts||
get in the way of a good rant?
|19 weeks 3 days ago||The Fact Sheet UM put out last week||
says financial details will be released "the week of July 13."
Not "on July 13."
|20 weeks 1 day ago||The biggest modern problem with the wishbone||
Is that it takes enough time and focus in practice to avoid 8 fumbles a game that there isn't enough time left to develop a good passing game.
Plus a good wishbone QB is going to be more effective in some form of a spread offense.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||very similar call||
the following year when Jamie Morris sort of caught a TD pass in South Bend.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Jerome Brown||
almost single-handedly put the wishbone on the dust heap of history.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||It is a given that UM gets a royalty on Michigan stuff||
That's been the case for as long as there has been Michigan stuff. Standard royalty is 10 percent. The adidas contract guaranteed that they would pay a minimum of $600k a year for royalties, even if merch sales came in under that.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||The $10 million figure||
Was made up by the Freep "based upon the market" (i.e., they assumed that UM wouldn't sign for less than it was getting from adidas) and has since been removed from their article on their web site.
The claim that the "most-favored nation" clause in the adidas deal pushed the value of the Michigan deal higher is false. The amount UM received from adidas increased from year one because of a CPI index that was built into the contract.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||If Nike wanted||
they could start selling UM apparel right away. Adidas' license for things like t-shirts, sweatshirts and the like is not exclusive and there is stuff from a variety of manufacturers on sale at the Mden right now. The exclusive license is for team apparel/uniforms and for replica competition gear (jerseys and other "gameday" apparel).
Who knows whether they would start right away or not.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||Pretty simple||
Anytime you say anything under oath or under penalty of perjury, if you are later found to have been lying, you can be prosecuted for perjury. That's true whether you say it in court, in an arbitration, in a deposition, in a tax return, in an insurance claim, a loan application, or anything else.
The fact is that perjury is a very rarely prosecuted crime, but that doesn't mean that it is never prosecuted.
