Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

Except with every other (real) laws in the universe, opposites attract.

The university's mission is to be the leading learning and research institution.
Athletics is a nice to have. It should never ever be a priority.
If it becomes a professional sport, the university should not get involved and take the University of Chicago route.

In hindsight it is obvious. At the time when the decision was made, it was not. I even wrote a diary about.

When I first brought this possibility as why B1G was adding Rutgers, there were quite a few folks thought that this was mere fantasy. I wonder where those people are now...
|10 weeks 6 days ago||There is a far greater chance||
There is a far greater chance that Bortles will be a worse NFL QB than Henne. Being a successful NFL QB is really really hard. There are countless QB's who were drafted higher than Henne and did not have half the production Henne has.

What is really absurd about this is Saban complaining about kids leaving early while cutting kids from the team before they can graduate. He has absolutely no basis to complain about kids leaving early.

This has nothing to do with Google or anyone else.
This was not just some random user posting an anonymous slander. The owner of the site selected the slander to highlight it and comment on it. You cannot edit content for publishing purpose and then claim immunity from slander.
It would be like if Brian highlighted a thread that accused Denard of sexual assault with a comment that he is not surprised.
The operator of the site was an idiot and justly got punished for it.

What sympathy are we lacking?
You might as well feel sorry for him for being old.
This is all BS. He is using the EXACT same tactic he used in the early 80's when the league tried to force him to sell due to his deliberate tanking to get Ralph Sampson.
He promised he would sell the team on his own then just never did and the league lost interest to pursue after a few years.
He is employing the same tactic hoping that this will just blow over in a few years and he can go to his deathbed owning this team. This guy is a scumbag. No one should be falling for this

This list has nothing to do with athletics. This deals with the entire student body. If your school is not on the list, it probably means sexual assaults are not treated seriously there.

Unless I am in the dark about five new NFL ready senior OL transfers, I don't know why anyone should be under the impression that this team will be significantly better than last year.

Hmmm... Brian, you do know that NBA (and pretty much all sports) tests for weeds, right? I mean, NBA testing is a joke, but still, the do test for it.

It is fans like you that ruins it for the rest of us.
If you think a being a top 16 program means you automatically expect them to make the sweet 16 every year, you are delusional. Kentucky did not make sweet 16 last year. Hell. They didn't even make the tourney.
Every program, even the very best, have their ups and downs. We may have some years where we don't even make the tourney, even with Beilein coaching. It will happen. You need to set your expectations accordingly.
The next year's team is going to be very very young. The past couple of years of outcome is an outlier when you have a such young team, not the norm. We will be lucky just to make the tourney. You should be ecstatic if/when we do.
To say that you EXPECT the team to make sweet 16 year after year is doing disservice to the program.

Are you seriously doubting something you posted just three posts above?
The quote is "I would be upset". And that is regarding if Mitch left on his own.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||No, you are missing the point||
No, you are missing the point. The op states that if McGary would have gone to NBA on his own, without NCAA forcing it, he would be upset.
I certainly would be disappointed in that decision in that I would not be able to watch him play for my favorite team, but I certainly would not be upset. I would be happy for him on his endeavors.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Why should anyone get upset||
Why should anyone get upset by a decision to pursue a career? If you are getting upset by a decision made by young people on whether or not to go pro, you need to step back and reexamine your priorities.

Then why is there a rosin bag on the mound?
|14 weeks 22 hours ago||When I want to watch a pro||
When I want to watch a pro football game, I watch NFL. I don't watch CFL, never watched USFL, don't care about Arena League.
I watch and support Michigan football (and all other sports) because the players are students at my alma mater. I will not support a minor league team that has some bizzare affiliation with the university. Not sure why the school should even bother with it.
I will watch a bunch of walk-on students play before I watch any hired guns.

A great big thank you to both Nik and GR3. They were EXACTLY what every college basketball fans hope for from their players, humble, unselfish, and dedicated kids of high character who perfomed at the highest level. They represented Michigan the way it should be represented. Thanks to all of that.

I love how random Internet guys know what is good for GR3 better than GR3 himself. It is not like he has a father who played NBA or anything... oh wait...

This is one of the gutsiest team I have ever seen in my life. Scrappy as hell and played hard every time with quiet confidence. I could not be prouder how this team has represented my school. Go BLUE!!!!
|18 weeks 6 hours ago||I just hope this is the first||
I just hope this is the first step towards a long winding road to getting rid of athletic scholarships all together. Instituting that has led to all this. I would be perfectly fine watching a game between walk ons. If I wanted to watch professionals, I would be watching NFL.

That just argues that we should get rid of high school football and basketball since none of them are going to major in football in college. It is not like a math club...

10% of revenue in salaries would be quite generous for most businesses. For example, Apple pays less than that and they make 15 times the revenue (and many tens billions in pure profit than NFL
50% is a very skewed number because NFL players are a very select group. It is comprised of less than 10% of the very best from NCAA. They SHOULD be making a lot more than NCAA players who are not as talented or rare.
10% is probably right in line with what they deserve. If you count in athletes from non revenue sports, they are getting paid too much as it is today.

Why? Just drop the athletic scholarships. US is the only country in the world who provides scholarship for athletes. Just offfer need based scholarship like every other student and all this goes away.
