|3 days 12 hours ago||I'm guessing||
it mainly has to do with new TV markets that a conference could bring in. None of the schools you list would allow the Pac-12 to enter new TV markets. So more then more likely the TV revenue of the conference wouldn't go up but the amount of schools dividing up the revenue would increase. I doubt the Pac-12 is interested in any of those schools.
|4 days 3 hours ago||What money??||
At some of those first and second round games barely half the arena is full. March Madness makes their money by selling the TV rights. Ticket sales are just a tiny percent of the NCAA's profit on March Madness.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Depends||
Didn't read the article but Rudock has to graduate from Iowa first. If he isn't scheduled to graduate until May, then I don't think he can transfer until the summer.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Morris redshirt||
IMO, it all depends on where he is on the depth chart. If Rudock were to win the starting job and Morris wins the back up job, why would you redshirt him? It's been a loooong time since UM has had a starting QB take all the meaningful snaps over the course of a season. Now if Morris ends up buried on the depth chart then he'd probably be eligible for redshirt due to never seeing the field. However, if he's buried on the depth chart I'd guess he might consider transferring.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Speight||
You think he'd transfer if Rudock was the starter this year? Speight is only a RS FR. If Rudock were the starter in 2015 then heading into 2016 Speight would still have 3 yrs of eligibility left and the QB spot would be up for grabs.

with the way Harbaugh answered that question we're off to better start organizationally than with the previous two regimes.
|5 days 4 hours ago||Gideon||
was actually seeing a fair bit of time towards the end of his freshman year. However, he all but disappeared last year on Saturdays.

Kobe Bryant and Cal Ripken,

Lower seed is on the road.

the athletes from all the countries were housed there.
|1 week 1 day ago||Santa Clara County is huge||
There's people in SF County that are closer to the stadium then people in Santa Clara County. Santa Clara County extends to the northern border of the Central Valley.
|1 week 1 day ago||With regards to the Raiders||
if you put a good product on the field the fans will come. Moving to LA might solve the attendance problem for the first couple of years because of the novelty but if they continue to churn out 4-12 type seasons, attendance will start to tail off.
|1 week 2 days ago||Exactly||
There's a reason the NBA draft went to 2 rounds. There just aren't many spots available on the roster each year. A good percentage of 2nd round draft picks don't even make an NBA roster.
|1 week 2 days ago||Only other Big Ten rivarly game||
Agree with your post but Minnesota had to come to Ann Arbor the past two years to play for the Little Brown Jug.
|1 week 2 days ago||Fun thread||
A few that I haven't seen mentioned:
1) Nicklaus winning the '86 Masters.
2) Tom Watson coming within one hole of winning the British Open in his late 50's
3) Hurricanes vs BC in '84??? The Flutie Hail Mary.
4) Villnova beating Gtown to win the NCAA title

I didn't know he did anything memorable with the Wizards??
|1 week 3 days ago||I agree with what you're saying||
about UM's tatlent (at least according to recruiting rankings) being better then a 5-7 team. However, a difference between OSU's 6-7 season and UM's 5-7 season is the development of the players. As I mentioned Tressell had built a machine where they did a great job of developing players. OSU was a program that was reloading year after year and was suddenly thrown into turmoil during the Spring of 2011. The OSU football program was in a much better place after the 2011 season then UM is after the 2014 season. I expect Harbaugh and his staff to develop these players much better than Hoke and his staff did but Harbaugh is going to be starting from scratch or at the very beginning of developing these players. Meyer walked into a situation where the players, especially the upperclassmen, were well on their way to being solid to stud contributors on Saturdays.
OSU was sitting there ready to be back at an elite level when Meyer took over. The 6-7 record was more of a blip then a trend that had been taking place and finally surfaced. On top of that OSU had an experienced QB returning. I think Harbaugh is going to be a godsend to our UM's QB's but outside of Morris making a couple starts, none of them have any experience.
|1 week 3 days ago||OSU's 6-7 season||
is a mirage. Did you not see that stat about what their record is over the last 10 years? Tressell had built OSU into a machine. The 6-7 record wasn't indicative of the talent that was on that roster. Urban Meyer walked into a program that was loaded with talent and had won the Big Ten every year from 2005-2010.
|1 week 3 days ago||Young Team in 2017||
OSU had a pretty young team this year and won the National Title. If you look at the depth chart for OSU before the Bama game, half of their two deep on defense is a first or second year player. 11 total players were Freshmen, RS Freshmen or true Sophs and 5 of them were listed as starters.
|1 week 3 days ago||It works both ways||
MSU has already played Maryland twice but UM hasn't played them yet and UM only plays them once. MSU had to go to Iowa but UM got Iowa at home. MSU has IU twice, UM only has IU once. UM has OSU twice but MSU only has OSU once.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Successful everywhere he's been||
No doubt he has had success at all his coaching stops but I wouldn't necessarily say he was competing for national championships before he came to UM. Before he arrived at UM, he had only made 4 appearances in the NCAA tourney - he actually had more NIT appearances then NCAA appearances before he arrived in Ann Arbor. Now two of those 4 NCAA appearances ended up being an Elite 8 and a Sweet 16.
Can you make a run to the Final Four or the Title Game without stud recrruits - sure. There's a number of recent examples to prove it, but if you want a program that is going to make consistent runs to the Elite 8 and Final 4 you need to land some stud recruits.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah||
and if you look at the NIT fields the last 3-4 years it's not common for an at-large to be at .500. There might be one team that is like 16-15 but most of the at-large bids are usually at least 3 or 4 games over .500
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Agree||
The fact they go to commercials before the kick off and after the kickoff is stupid.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||In this day and age||
of spread offenses and 3 play scoring drives I don't think getting rid of the clock stopping after first downs is going to put in a major dent in the overall game time in D1 division. The reason the difference is probably so great between D1, 1-AA, D2 etc. is TV timeouts/commercials. When you look at the scores from any given Saturday and most of the scores are 45-27, 42-28, etc. the amount of time spent going to commercial breaks after scores is huge.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Jerry Hanlon||
because all he did was put out stud olines year after year. I'd love to see an in depth interview with him.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Bunting's size||
While it good be a huge asset in the passing game, it can also be a liability when it comes to blocking if his technique isn't solid.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Agree on Hill||
Everyone seems to be focues on Bunting but Hill was actually starting to make some contributions in the passing game before he got hurt.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||How is this much different||
then Bo saying a Michigan man will coach Michigan??
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Not necessarily true||
I know a number of people who got accepted to multiple schools for their graduate program and ended up rolling at a school of lesser prestige. They school they enrolled at offered them a way better package when it came to the financial aspect of attending grad school.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Wilson||
wasn't a marginal contributor at NC State. He redshirted his freshman year and then started the next 3 years and was quite good. He was named first team All-ACC at least one of those years. The big issue as far as I remember was NC State's coach wanted Wilson to focus on football but Wilson wanted to continue playing minor league baseball in the summer months.
