I think money coming from the Big Ten Network had a large influence in the increase in total staff salary for Hoke than RR. The Big Ten Network was started Aug. 2007 and nobody really had an idea that the channel would succeed. Also, BTN was not present in most cable/dish subscriptions. The success from BTN resulted in increased payouts to the Universities allowing for an increase in salaries.

To add in between points 1 and 2
1. allegations that he told a player to delete video of the incidence in order to protect the players and to cover up the rape
2. allegations of Franklin contacting the victim 4 days after the incident

I'm surprised that Penn State even offered Franklin the HC job after the Sandusky scandal.
There are allegations that Franklin, in the summer of '13, tried to cover up a rape by telling a player to delete disturbing video of the incidence. Also, there is an allegation that Franklin contacted the rape victim as well.

For the Master CC thread, you can insert links to other threads of specific coaches where people can discuss a certain candidate. It would be something that will be maintained by inserting Coach A and Coach B links.
Same thing could be done with the "Firing XXXXX" threads with a specific link to Brady Hoke and a link to Fire Brandon.

|42 weeks 6 days ago||Besides the X's and O's||
Besides the X's and O's mentioned in this thread so far, I believe three additional items make his situtation and success much different then his time at Michigan.
1. His base of recruiting is MUCH different at 'Zona compared to Mich. He is able to recruit California much more effectively now compared to his time here. State of Cali (and I guess Arizona) has a larger pool of "college-ready" players compared to the state of Michigan. The distance makes it easier for players to choose Arizona over Michigan.
2. The academic standards are much more relaxed at 'Zona making it possible for him to recruit players that otherwise may not have been eligible for admission at Mich, espicially inallowing JUCO players to be signed.
3. RR is able to recruit and sign JUCO players. This is can be considered as part of item number 2 but JUCO players are ususally much more physically developed and tend to be more mature.

I found these three statements rather interesting. I apologize for the lack of proper formatting on my part, it was merely a cut and paste.

From Dave Brandon's Statement:
As of Sunday, Shane was diagnosed with a probable, mild concussion, and a high ankle sprain. That probable concussion diagnosis was not at all clear on the field on Saturday or in the examination that was conducted post-game.
. . .Coach Hoke was not provided the updated diagnosis before making a public statement on Monday. This is another mistake that cannot occur again.
From Monday Mornings/Afternoon Presser:
Q: And since all of this has happened have you personally talked with Shane Morris?
A: “Yeah. I saw him yesterday. Saw him this morning.”

There was another user on the board that was setting up a Kickstarter account to fund skywriting "Fire Brandon" or something of that sort.
I think using Kickstarter as a form of a petition would work with people donating money for a "Fire Dave Brandon and Others" Fund. At the end of the fundraising, the funds could be donated to charities. The act would be symbolic as well as able to raise money for great causes

I suggest watching SkySportsNews either through Vipbox or firstrowsports. Make sure to have AdBlock as an add-on. There are a lot of pop-ups for those two sites.
SkySportsNews does a wonderful job covering all the team in all of the English Leagues.

Chuck Martin was originally the DC for GVSU in the early 2000's. When he became head coach at GV, he started to call the offensive plays. He is a jack of all trades.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||The question at hand could be||
The question at hand could be which is better for the day-to-day operations of the site and the message board, quality or quantity.
The quantity of page clicks result in a larger paycheck, which is good for business in a sense. Lately, it seems like a lot of negativity has driven a lot of traffic for the site (example, the many Fire Borges Threads, and the "Purge" thread). As a result, a lot of valuable posters have gotten fed up trying to shout rational ideas/discussions over the simply stated 'fire borges" statements.
Quality: Using a self moderation system where the community can patrol the message board so that rational discussion of football can easily rid and discourage users who tend to inflame other, most rational contributors. As a consequence, there may be a slight loss in traffic to the site. The users who tend to provide insightful and thought provoking discussion/debates/ideas should have the louder voices in my opinion.
Self Moderation will make the mods jobs much easier since I can sense some burnout from a few of them. The lack of acknoweledgement of the community from Brian and lack of fixes to the board is starting to show.

For the most part, professional athletes/entertainers are paid to do interviews but not are paid directly by the interviewer. They are paid either through salary to meet obligations (professional athletes) or they are fined by the league or organization if they do not meet it. Actors and Musicians are often on talk shows or doing interviews to promote their new release. They are marketing their product.
It goes both ways for the interviewer and interviewee. The interviewer gets what they want and ultimately get paid through page clicks, tv/radio advertising...etc. The interviewee is able to market.
I suggest looking up the Matt Harvey interview with Dan Patrick to hear DP's rant.

About 15 years ago, my Grandparents were still using a two box set-up with a huge Satelitte dish in the back yard as a way to watch tv. You were able to find tv feeds that had no broadcasters but just the natural sounds from the game.
