He hired Bob Diaco who's had one year with a tire fire of a roster. He tried to hire Narduzzi before that so he clearly is at least paying attention to up and coming coaches.

The statistics show the balls were within a range at halftime that would indicate they were within a legal range at the beginning of the game. Unless you think the Patriots had a devious plan to overinflate the balls, get them tested, then deflate them to a lower, yet still legal, level, then it doesn't really make any sense.

You figure worst case on these kids is that they have the desire and drive but not quite the talent so they end up being productive depth players and starters by the end of their careers while also creating relationships and building pipelines into talent-rich places that Michigan hasn't really recruited that heavily in the past.

I don't think it's a bad call but it's definitely not as obvious as it would be now. Allow me to submit this 2006-2008 NFL best hits video as evidence.

I'm pretty sure he wasn't predicting that Bolden would blow up into a slightly more above average player.

Having an experienced back up is very nice for you and I. Spending another year putting in all the work and time required to be an experienced back up is a totally different thing.

Having been a big name in California football for the last 8 years, it makes sense to try and capitalize on that and build some pipelines in the state.

As long as the hackers stick to small things like identity theft or domestic abuse and stay away from the large issues like under inflated footballs the NFL is willing to let it slide.

Bellomy hasn't shown much but neither have any of the other QBs on the roster. Assuming that neither of the true freshmen win the starting job, you'd probably want them to redshirt which would leave Speight as the only other option. Losing one of a not that large or experienced group of unproven players doesn't seem like a good trade off for that scholarship, especially this late in the recruiting period.

This happened TO the players so they can actually investigate it.

Mudblood is the bad word but only because it means that they have dirtied their blood by mixing it with muggle blood. They obviously couldn't insult a wizard by calling them a muggle since they clearly have powers so they have to use a word that associates them with muggles.
If you look at the word from a positive/Harry point of view, the word doesn't carry any negative connotaions, it's just used to refer to non-magical people. However, from a Voldemort point of view, muggle does carry a negative connotaion. Muggles (and to a certain extent squibs) are so far beneth the wizarding community that they aren't even worth mentioning and are best either killed off or enslaved by the purebloods.
Without knowing which side a person is on, the term could be used derisively to show that the non-athletic population doesn't have merit or it could just be used simply as a way to show how different groups have differing opinions on the issue.

If he's going to be a career backup, perhaps Cardale Jones should start playing more school.

How is Stanford able to get David Shaw to show up for work with all that money he has in his bank account? Or is that, somehow, a totally unrelated thing?

It's not hating on New Haven so much as saying why drive there if you're already in Hartford.

Liquor store close at 9 pm now. I've never seen someone get denied at a respectable establishment for having an out of state ID.
Someone said it above but I also agree that you shouldn't go to New Haven, it's closer to 40 mins away and you can either head to West Hartford Center or you can stay in Hartford on Allyn and Ann St near the XL Center.
Also, remember to read up on the greats from UConn teams past http://www.uconnhuskies.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/uconn-in-cfl.html.

Well said, I think a younger, less experienced team like the one this year is going to be more prone to getting up for big games and having the proverbial hangover for, what should be, cupcakes. Games like this even show that you have to show up every week and wins aren't just handed out and it should be a good lesson learned heading forward.

It may not have been the proper but Brady is a major spokesman for and part owner of UA. I'm sure he would love to see Michigan in their uniforms.
