|2 weeks 2 days ago||That rule has changed||
since Boren transferred.
|5 weeks 12 hours ago||He could sue Goodell for defamation||
But will probably conclude that life is too short.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Just a small point||
The regular season was 12 games in 2002 and 2003. It was a 2 year experiment at the time, then they went back to 11 games for 2004 and 2005, and then the 12 game regular season was made permanent in 2006.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||His tweet from earlier today||
implies he's going to SMU.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||At least you're honest||
about being a fair-weather fan.
|18 weeks 12 hours ago||they said their source||
for Swenson was the same as the source on the Peters rumor, which is why they gave it credence.
Just passing on what they said.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Not only did he retire of his own accord||
he tried to retire the year before and the athletic director asked him to stay on another year.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Last time they had 8 home games||
the price was $450.
Spin it however you want.
|23 weeks 11 hours ago||I hope you realize||
that someone else doubtless did the same in your room before you got there and no, the cleaning crew did not fully clean it up.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||If you have Directv||
and aren't under contract with them, and aren't calling every 6 months to get some kind of concession from them, you're leaving money on the table.
|24 weeks 1 day ago||That's not what Bylaw 184.108.40.206 says||
It says that if you're on an athletic scholarship and you play football you count for football. Period, end of discussion.
Football trumps everything. Hoops trumps everything but football.
Kind of a right bower/left bower deal.
Bylaw 220.127.116.11 says that you only count in one sport no matter how many you play.
|31 weeks 5 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.
|31 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.
|31 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.
|32 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.
|37 weeks 6 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.
|41 weeks 8 hours ago||I think he's specifically talking about||
credential sharing for live sports events.
|41 weeks 8 hours 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.
|41 weeks 2 days ago||Missed the stadium?||
They flew right overhead.
|41 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.
|42 weeks 2 days ago||If he transfers to an FBS school he sits out next year||
Unless he graduates by May.
|43 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.
|43 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.
|46 weeks 4 days ago||because nobody has ever heard of a hurricane speediing up||
and moving faster than it was predicted to move. <eyeroll>
|46 weeks 4 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.
|47 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.
|47 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.

1989 Rose Bowl win over USC
2004 Rose Bowl loss to USC
2005 Rose Bowl loss to Texas
|50 weeks 6 days ago||I probably wouldn't wait until game day||
I'd call the Ticket Office today.
|51 weeks 3 days ago||Bear Bryant and Barry Switzer||
In the 1970s both had outstanding records.
