Right. That's why when I buy something from a company with a trusted brand name the workers don't get any of the money.

They project 9.2 for Michigan in the Big 10 and 7.7 for UNC in the ACC.

1. As I read it, #1 picks the 2nd team, #2 picks the 3rd team, etc. That would likely preserve regional rivalries.
2. Those teams probably have a recruiting disadvantage as it currently stands.
3. Iowa would have finished tied for 6th last year (using just conference record) so they could still have had their season.
4. If some teams have 11 regular season games it would make sense that everyone has that many. You can still have out of conference games to ensure rivalry games occur.
5. Status quo.
6. Same as above, each team only picks one conference member.
7. It isn't a whole lot different than it is now. Players that choose the Alabamas and the Ohio States can be pretty sure they won't be relegated but they may not get much playing time. It's essentially the same thing as the guys who have a choice at being a starter for a MAC team or a special teams/back up at a power 5 school.

I'm willing to bet they aren't looking ahead to the big Rutgers matchup next week.

It's not a "loss", we lost. Acceptance is the fifth step. Regardless, this team is ahead of where anyone projected it to be at this point so take what will probably be a 9-3 season and build from there.

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.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||The statistics show the balls||
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.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||You figure worst case on||
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.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Bellomy hasn't shown much but||
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.

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.

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?
