|2 weeks 5 days ago||Here's the NCAA Rule||
a. No defensive player, in an attempt to gain an advantage, may step, jump or stand on an opponent.
b. No defensive player who runs forward from beyond the neutral zone and leaps from beyond the neutral zone in an obvious attempt to block a field goal or try may land on any player(s).
c. No defensive player who is inside the tackle box may try to block a punt by leaving his feet in an attempt to leap directly over an opponent.
d. No defensive player, in an attempt to block, bat or catch a kick, may:
PENALTY [a-d]—15 yards, previous spot and automatic first down. [S38]
|4 weeks 3 days ago||College PI in the endzone||
Results in the ball being placed at the 2 if the original spot was at the 17 or closer to the end zone or a 15 yard penalty (no reduction for half the distance) if the original spot was outside the 17.
In this case, the play started at the 20 so the ball was placed at the 5.

|6 weeks 5 days ago||yes, by all means||
let's keep dismantling the things that have made college football worth watching.
Texas vs. Texas A&M on Thanskgiving weekend? Who ever wanted to see that.
Texas vs. Oklahoma on the second Saturday of October at the Texas State Fair in Dalls? They've never played any memorable games.
Pretty soon we'll wind up with about 30 teams worth watching and little in the way of tradition but making lots of money.
Sounds like NFL lite to me.

this gut feeling has been around for a while...
|7 weeks 3 days ago||It's a Big 10 rule||
Harbaugh took the whole roster to Utah last year.

tips for staying safe:
1. safety in numbers.
2. for whatever reason, if your stuff doesn't say Michigan on it they don't seem to pick up on the fact that you're a Michigan fan if you're wearing blue (like any true OSU fan would be caught dead wearing blue to the game on that day of all days).
3. don't mouth off and be prepared to ignore pretty much any verbal insult.
4. safety in numbers.

he said that it will not.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||there is no notification rule in college football||
the two end men on the LOS are eligible if wearing the right number and ineligible if wearing 50-79.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||you are correct||
even the center can be an eligible receiver in college football so long as he is wearing the right number, assuming that everyone else on the line is to one side or the other.
|11 weeks 2 days ago||There's an AATA shuttle from at least one of the mall hotels||
I believe it picks up at the Kensington Hotel and drops off/picks up in front of Crisler.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||3 days out||
is when you're just starting to move beyond an informed guess. Even 24 hours out can be iffy.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Just FYI for rental cars||
I've never seen discounts that beat what you can get from Costco Travel, assuming you're already a Costco member.
Discounts are great and for family trips you get an additional driver included for no extra charge.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Stubhub fees are a percentage of the sale price||
I tried a pair of PSU tickets listed at $99 each. The fees take the $198 total price to $242.60, or 44.60 in fees. That's 22.5 percent of the listed price in fees.
If you paid $16 in fees that means you probably just bought a couple cheap tickets to UCF.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||If you can get||
something like two seats in one row immediately ahead of or behind two seats in the next, it can actually make it easier for four people to talk to each other.
Wouldn't really think of it for just two people though.
You can pay Stubhub's fees for the convenience and so you have some recourse/assistance in the event there's a problem, or you buy direct from the university, or you can go to another website or the streets of Ann Arbor and take your chances. It's a free country.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I'd go for a definitive answer||
and call the Ticket Office at (734) 764-0247 or (866) 296-MTIX and ask them.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||It wasn't quite as restrictive||
as one game a week and each team could only appear once a season. I know that they allowed for multiple games per weekend because I can recall going to OU-Nebraska in Norman with ABC cameras all over the place and then coming home to watch USC-UCLA on ABC at night. Also I think the rule was 3 appearances per team per season, plus a bowl game.
|17 weeks 17 hours ago||That rule has changed||
since Boren transferred.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||He could sue Goodell for defamation||
But will probably conclude that life is too short.
|20 weeks 6 days 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.

implies he's going to SMU.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||At least you're honest||
about being a fair-weather fan.
|32 weeks 5 days 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.
|34 weeks 4 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.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||Last time they had 8 home games||
the price was $450.
Spin it however you want.

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.

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.
|38 weeks 6 days 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.

that has quotes from Big 10 officials in it.
Minnesota had a class of 30 in 2010 or so.
