"Though I received no official response to these sophisticated and elegant tweets to the Illini Athletic Department, I would like to think that Beckman spent the evening prank calling everyone in Illinois named George McLellan and then ordering an absurd amount of hats off an internet haberdashery to hoard in his home's hat annex."

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.

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.

Indiana Pacers did the same exact thing that the Pistons did last night. The Pacers had a chance to draft Steve Alford, a God an Indiana but they chose Reggie Miller instead.

I use vipbox mostly for sports (United States and Abroad) and use XBMC for CNN, TLC, Discovery, and History Channel. Sky News stream that I use is 720.

If you want news and pretty much all of the channels found in a high tier cable package, i'd download xbmc and install navi-x. Navi x livestreams roughly 1000 or so channels from the US, UK, and world wide. You can find some 720 quality streams but it is rare but the standard def streams are pretty darn good. XBMC also allows video add-ons such as 1channel and ice films that have 720 quality streams of tv shows and movies.

A Relegation/Promotion System in college and pro sports. Think about having the top 2 or 3 MAC teams moving up to the BIG 10 while the lower 2-3 teams in the BIG 10 move down.
It would be interesting having the top AAA teams in the Major League while teams like the Houston Astros would move down a league.

TMZ is reporting that Dwight Howard is in talks to star in two movies and to star in a video game. Both movies will be directed and produced by Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer. They are Kazaam 2 and Steel 2. The video game will be called Shaq Fu 2: Revenge of Shaq's Shadow.

Who hasn't met or doesn't know Chelios personally!?!? I was at a restaurant in Chicago called Pizano's and the waiter we had spent a solid hour and a half at our table talking about Chelios and hockey. Quite possibly the best restaurant experience I have ever had.
