Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

Is he still in the league?

I honestly wouldn't question this at all if it were registered in Nix's name. It's not, so there will be questions about. How is that so hard for Izzo to understand?

It's not even a well-kept secret either, at least not around here (I live a couple miles from MSU campus). It's not uncommon to spot players driving around town in suspiciously nice vehicles.

Based on what I heard about people buying on secondary markets last season, the $95 "premium" game is definitely not too high. People in my section (35) claimed to pay around 200 for the Ohio game and even more for UTL. Now, $75 for UMass? Yeah...that's overpriced. It's basically subsidizing the true market value of the premium game though. Would people be happier if the face value were $30 or so for the lesser games and closer to what scalpers/stubhub ask for the premium games? I think that pricing disparity at face value would cause a lot more grumbling. Obviously everyone would rather pay less for these games, but the demand clearly is still very high for premium games, so that's going to pull up the prices for other games.

I'd be embarrassed. The only exceptions being if it were congratulatory or well wishes on recovering from an injury. Something like this? Inappropriate at the very least.

Does anyone remember back when our cheerleaders would steal the other team's mascot and carry it to the goal post, spread it's legs and bash it into the pole? When I was a kid I thought that was hilarious and remember thinking "and they can't do that to us because we don't have a mascot!" Bring that tradition back in lieu of a mascot.

It's Rick Brandt of the equipment staff. Special K is a girl
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Money argument||
Obviously these games against 1-AAs get scheduled to ensure we don't have to pay a return visit and can maximize our revenue from a home game. However, do we make more money from bringing in UMass/App St compared to Delaware St? My assumption is 'no', and based on that assumption I wonder why in the world we would schedule a team that has ever contended for a 1-AA title? The national perception is that all 1-AAs are worse than all 1-As (clearly not true, but most people believe that's the case). If we must bring in a 1-AA, it has to be a bad one, no excuses. Hopefully we have learned from this and will schedule only mega cupcake 1-AAs (if any at all) in the future. One more question: who scheduled this game, Martin or Brandon? I think it was Martin but I'm really not sure.

Is there a new PA guy for this season, or was that perhaps one of the coaches calling out touchdowns and such?

I think some people will be irritated at first by this new regulation, but like everything else that has come up over the years, people will adjust and eventually forget the liberties that used to be allowed. When my dad was in undergrad (early '70s) he told me of the days when students would set up kegs in the aisle and pass the cups down to everyone in the rows around them (drinking age was still 18 back then so alcohol wasn't regulated as harshly on campus).
