|3 weeks 4 days ago||I've posted a link elsewhere||
that has quotes from Big 10 officials in it.
Minnesota had a class of 30 in 2010 or so.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||If a player was not a recruited student-athlete||
(meaning no official visit and no in-home visit from a coach), and the scholarship is either non-institutional (i.e. the Kalamazoo Promise) or if institutional, the Director of Financial Aid certifies that it is not related to athletics ability, a player can get a non-athletic scholarship, play a sport, and not count against the scholarship limitations.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||The Big 10's "plus 3" rule||
has to do with the 85 limit, not the 25 limit.
See the quotes from Big 10 officials in this article.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||The idea is to get wifi in the stadium||
That is what NFL stadiums do and it takes a lot of the load (primarily people trying to send pictures they've taken either to friends or to Twitter/Facebook).
The problem is that there are not a lot of good places in the bowl to put the antennae. I think they tried it out on a limited basis for a few sections on the east side of the stadium in 2013 but then things got really distracted going into 2014.
Brandon blamed the decline in student attendance on this issue but the fact that it was an excuse was shown by the fact that he didn't exactly make it a priority to deal with.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||It's basically||
an accounting convention. A similar charge is imposed on every department - essentially the allocation of overhead expenses that can't otherwise be allocated, so it is recorded as a charge against each department's budget.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I think he's specifically talking about||
credential sharing for live sports events.
|12 weeks 6 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.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Missed the stadium?||
They flew right overhead.
|13 weeks 5 days 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.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||If he transfers to an FBS school he sits out next year||
Unless he graduates by May.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||The Big 10 would say||
they were just making it up to Sparty for having to play in Ann Arbor in 1967 and 1968.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||on the final play||
This is an end zone angle that makes clear that the MSU player was not blocked into the long snapper.
|18 weeks 3 days ago||because nobody has ever heard of a hurricane speediing up||
and moving faster than it was predicted to move. <eyeroll>
|18 weeks 3 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.
|19 weeks 4 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.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Considering that||
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.
|22 weeks 5 days ago||1978 OSU 1984 OSU 1989 Rose||
1989 Rose Bowl win over USC
2004 Rose Bowl loss to USC
2005 Rose Bowl loss to Texas
|22 weeks 6 days ago||I probably wouldn't wait until game day||
I'd call the Ticket Office today.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||Bear Bryant and Barry Switzer||
In the 1970s both had outstanding records.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||Alcoholism is a medical issue||
the fact that you've been busted for underage drinking, DUI, drunk in public or whatever, is not.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||according to the guy at Rivals who started the story,||
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Original source||
is a poster at Rivals who claims to be a friend of the family and says that he saw the text from Mone.
|27 weeks 3 hours ago||It was announced last week||
To be the overall (i.e. not sport-specific) twitter voice of the Athletic Department.
|27 weeks 3 hours 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.
|27 weeks 1 day 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.
|28 weeks 22 hours 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.
|30 weeks 3 hours ago||Since when do people let the facts||
get in the way of a good rant?
|30 weeks 1 day ago||The Fact Sheet UM put out last week||
says financial details will be released "the week of July 13."
Not "on July 13."
|30 weeks 5 days 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.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||very similar call||
the following year when Jamie Morris sort of caught a TD pass in South Bend.
