That Michigan rarely plays when it is below 40 degrees, right?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||He's not allowed to express his opinion?||
That's the thing about freedom of speech - either everyone has it or nobody does.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||Non-revenue facilities at Michigan||
are ultimately paid for by donors. Of all the building that has gone on the last 12 years, the only ones that didn't have donor commitments in place before ground was broken were the Michigan Stadium renovations (where you could see the revenue stream from the suites and premium seating) and the hoops PDC.
All the others were ultimately backed by donor commitments.
None of this has much to do with whether the athletic department is running a surplus in its operating budget or not.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||The "subsidy" at Michigan||
is an accounting convention. Every department is allocated a certain amount of administrative cost from the university administration, which gets carried on the books of the Athletic Department as a contribution or subsidy.

was at worst about a 55-45 split in favor of Alabama, crowd-wise.
At least until the game started. :(
|6 weeks 1 day ago||LSU-Wisconsin||
Are playing in Green Bay in 2016. I guess they were each willing to play a neutral site game in a location where the other was likely to have a big advantage but not willing to just play a home and home.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Give me a break||
Only the folks that run MGoBlog could take someone giving $3 million to the university and turn it into a bad thing.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||It wouldn't have made any difference in Columbus||
if they'd played it on campus at OSU. Attendance wouldn't have been any better.
|8 weeks 7 hours ago||ESPN3||
isn't an option without a cable TV subscription.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||This was an offer sent out||
to people with over 400 priority points, as I understand it.
|9 weeks 3 hours ago||so you'll give him your money||
once he resigns?
I don't think you said what you meant to say...
|9 weeks 3 days ago||The games are nationally televised||
if Michigan is playing on Saturday and Sunday that will help recruiting. They don't need to be in DC or NYC to accomplish that.
This is good news for our alums in the northeast and bad news otherwise.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||this particular program||
is run by the Alumni Association.
Has nothing to do with the Athletic Department.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Berenson||
was not stolen from St. Louis to coach Michigan. He was fired by St. Louis towards the end of the 1981-82 season. He was hired at Michigan for the 1984-85 season.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||I read as much of this thread as I could||
and all I can say is man, you guys complain a lot.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||I've been a season ticket holder in Columbus||
since day 1.
The day they got Jack Johnson was the day the franchise started turning around.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||The new president has made pretty clear||
that he doesn't give a flip about sports. His two instructions to the AD will be: 1. pay your own way, and 2. don't embarrass the university.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||No you need to log in to your online ticket account||
and make sure that they have an email that is correct. Make sure the Ticket Office is on your "permitted senders" list so it doesn't get caught up in your spam filter. Also, on your online ticket account make sure that you haven't unsubscribed from all mailings.
Having said all that, if you tried to renew right now, I'm almost positive it will go through.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||They went electronic-only||
this year. Maybe last year.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Wisky-LSU||
on Labor Day from Houston will also be in prime time.
BTN usually has several prime time games as well.
|13 weeks 3 hours ago||Expanding the media timeouts||
would spread that time throughout the game. As it is, it took 18 minutes to play the last minute of the UM-Tennessee game because of ALL THE TIMEOUTS.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Student section is approx. 21,000||
21,000 * $295 (what I've heard the 2014 price for student tickets would be) = $6.195 million.
Turn those into free tickets and you've put the athletic department at risk of running at a loss.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Might want to make sure||
that the 5 year repeat violator window has closed before they bring in another school.
Or push through a bylaw change...
|13 weeks 5 days ago||If those students feel taken advantage of now||
Just wait til they graduate and find out how sheltered they've been.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||The NCAA was not granted an antitrust exemption||
Your repeated statements to the contrary are wrong.
Take a gander at National Collegiate Athletics Association v. Regents of the University of Oklahoma, 468 U.S. 85 (1984).
Since you're too busy patting yourself on the back for your imagined genius I'll even summarize it for you.
Prior to 1984, the NCAA controlled college football television. It negotiated the contract and limited how much any one school could appear on television.
The Supreme Court held that the NCAA was subject to the Sherman Antitrust Act, and that its prohibition on individual schools or conferences making their own television deals violated said Act.
As a result, in 30 years we have gone from teams getting to play no more than 3 times a year on TV to near-riots occurring if their games aren't available while people are on vacation in China.
There are many other fallacies you've posted, but since most of them rest on your flawed statement that it is exempt from the antitrust rules, I'll go back to work.
Have a nice day.

but they can't make a legally binding commitment (or even a non binding promise) while players are being recruited or playing.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||If you make the Final Four||
You are the champion of your region.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||That far out,||
Accuweather is just forecasting the average temps for that time of year.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||The last two years were rough||
The two before that were excellent.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||It means||
They're trying to find a graduate program that isn't months past the deadline for applications.
