- Allow a recruit to take official visits during Junior year of high school
- Create an early signing period - allow recruits to submit an LOI at any time during their Senior year of High School
- LOI are binding on both ends. Kid wants out, Coach must agree to it. Coach wants to use scholarship on someone else, must get the kid to sign off on it.

There will be plenty of room in blue lot. My daughter went to a WBB game last year - parking is not a problem.

This could be solved relatively easily:
and while I'm having this pipe-dream moment: The NCAA would strictly enforce signing limits - max # per year, etc.

I'll make it even easier - take away the helmets. Otherwise, you'll still have those hard hits with additional refereeing issues. Helmets are the #1 weapon. As long as those are still being used - no matter how technologically advanced they become - head related injuries will persist.

Sam Webb intimated this morning that two coaches had accepted and changed mind at the last minute on the UM job. Said one was Schiano. He declined to say the other. This might be legit.

If by "pool" he means "body of water" and by "body of water" he means " the Pacific Ocean", then, yeah, maybe.

But he did catch 100% of the passes thrown to him this year. (1 of 1)

Swan song. Curtain call. Walk off home run. Call it what you will, Hacket lands Harbaugh and dude needs to retire as a freaking legend!

Let me ask you this:
Of the three individuals listed in the "rumor" you are citing, which one of them got divorced and remarried during that timeframe?
I'll give you a hint: it wasn't Les.

"That" thing is not what you think it is. Or rather, you have the players mixed up.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||I can get behind your reason||
I can get behind your reason #1, but let's not hold a rumor against the guy, especially one that is blatantly false.
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Don't perpetuate the myth.||
Don't perpetuate the myth. No, It wasn't Les having the affair and it wasn't Moeller's wife.

It's been at the bottom of the shirt drawer, same place as my 1997 national champ tshirt. Which I also coincidentally am wearing for the first time in a long time.

Funchess in the end zone, Butt in the flat at the 1st marker.

This. While Butt leaks out across the middle. Two options for Gardner. 3rd option is his legs.

What's the prediction for the 2nd half scoring? 37 is their halftime point total, right?
|14 weeks 3 days ago||Good perspective. I never||
Good perspective. I never really considered the track record of not developing a back-up. You figure he has 4-5 scholarships tied up in QBs, so it's reasonable to expect #2 QB to be serviceable if #1 QB goes down. That right there is an indictment on the staffs inability to develop players.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||I concur with both comments.||
I concur with both comments. However, given that both places are typically packed on game days but aren't today - a day where a "reasonable" person might want to park closer to the stadium - I think the stadium is gonna have a lot of empty seats. Unless of course everyone decided today was the day they were going to park further away and get their pre-Thanksgiving cardio workout in.

Drove by Pioneer on my way to my daughters bball game and that lot was barren. Both golf courses had hardly any tailgaters. Gonna be a lot of open seats today.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Regarding this Blum guy: was||
Regarding this Blum guy: was this loan 'personal' as in "no collateral" by the signee or was it 'personal' in that Blum loaned them his own money? If it's the latter and the guy fronted them $2M of his own cash, then he's entitled to charge whatever interest the two parties agree to.
Also, it appears this loan is non-secured, in which case 12% isn't that outlandish. Go to the bank and try to get a "line of credit" loan, you are looking at rates from 9.5% to 13.5%.
I think the bigger issue is why Jack's parents were borrowing this money, not the entity or person who was underwriting the loan.

I keep hearing this, but I've never seen it referenced in a news report. Who is the source for this info?
|15 weeks 6 days ago||But your spending all the||
But your spending all the time on getting the first score when you need two scores. Take the quickest and easiest score available. Which was the FG. Either way, your fate relies on the onside.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Probability of getting 3 was||
Probability of getting 3 was greater than getting 7 at that position. Yes, a FG then makes the TD after the onside even more difficult. But scoring a TD there would eat valuable time (1:25 left) and again, it's not even a guarantee you get 7. QB has thrown a couple picks already. Minny kept shooting themselves in foot on Third and short. I liked the call - even if I'm in the minority.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||What's the point of scoring 7||
What's the point of scoring 7 if it uses all the clock? You don't even get a shot at the tie because the TD ate all the clock. Take the gimme FG and if you get the onside you can go for the TD. Don't expect everyone to agree with this, but I liked it and see the rationale.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Kill was trying to save||
Kill was trying to save clock. FG makes it a one position game. Either way you need to get the onside. Take the easy points now (FG) and try the hard stuff if/when u get the onside.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||I disagree. You assume the 7||
I disagree. You assume the 7 is a given and they don't use all the clock. I actually like this strategy.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||You get 7 here but use all||
You get 7 here but use all the clock, then it's a waste. Now they can get 3 and hope they get the onside.

So, what you are saying is in order to defeat the opponent I need a player that is not currently on my roster? Can I improvise with a less mobile version? Say a bent coat hanger and duct tape?
