Dantonio doesn't have the heart either. /mocking coaches serious health issues
|1 day 22 hours ago||This is the same disaster we||
This is the same disaster we have with Neb/OSU/ND on the same home/away schedule. I'm really disappointed with how DB has handled B1G scheduling. Keeping The Game the last of the season is really the only good scheduling victory he's pulled off.

You beat me to it. I don't mind thoughtful updates to the uniform, particularly the aways. And I'm in the apparent minority that thinks yellow maize looks better than orange.

Sparty at least has talent in addition to physicality. If they really start calling all contact, Wiscy won't even make the tourney.

To be fair, I think ND has a series against Texas coming up - Texas for Michigan is a closer trade in terms of prestige of opponent. So I doubt their 2015 will be much easier than their 2014. That said, to hell with 'em.

I know you were answering the guy's question, but it doesn't really seem fair to lump 2009 recruits who graduated (e.g. Denard) in with unplanned departures...

How "lasting" was the "legacy", if you "catch my drift"? /fartjoke

Cookie corner cutting? Scream sour grapes?

His point is that if a player is OFFERED a medical scholarship at school A but decides INSTEAD to transfer to school B and ends up playing there, it looks fishy.
|1 week 6 days ago||I believe medical scholies||
I believe medical scholies are a somewhat new thing. As in, used to not be allowed.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Parity based scheduling could||
Parity based scheduling could actually be good, if and only if they make the division record the number 1 factor in the division title (right now, it's total conference record). That way, the concerns about a decent team sneaking into the title game over a good team by womping an easier cross division schedule are eliminated.

Rule #1 is no politics, and while the line is fuzzy, I don't think there's any doubt you crossed it. Your comment would not be unusually flamey or out of line on a political blog but it's out of place here.
In case you think it's just you, note the locking of the "DB running for Senate?" thread. Extending the courtesy of an explanation since your points indicate you're a rare poster.

While I know none of these people personally, from resume Krislov seems like an excellent choice. And unlike Hanlon and Sullivan, taking the Michigan job would be a definite upgrade to his current position.

Not sure about stripes, but I guarantee you the Mackinac Bridge would go from green and white to an absolutely blinding shade of Maize (which would change every 3 weeks).

Indignity was an attempt at humorous hyperbole directed at the "I know where she's coming from". Sorry if it didn't come off as intended.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Sure, but you gotta admit||
Sure, but you gotta admit some of the flaws are inherent in the system when anybody, bitch or not, can get that worked up about people being quiet and awkward at forced-pairing social events, and then be defended (sort of) by numerous others who apparently suffered through similar indignities as Greek officers.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||This needs to be posted every||
This needs to be posted every time someone hits a nerve and triggers a brah backlash of "blah blah stop stereotyping the Greek system blah blah" (as it did in many of the GA threads) because honestly sometimes you need to able to laugh at yourself.

I agree on the sad abuse of "begs the question" - but what idiom do we have that has the actual meaning that "begs the question" abusers are going for?

Well, if he expected to get a lot of PT, wouldn't he want to stay? And wouldn't Crean want him to?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Key words "to accommodate the||
Key words "to accommodate the large number of requests". It was expanded because there were students purchasing tickets. If students are not purchasing tickets it will shrink. DB is not sitting on unsold seats just to make sure the "student section" is a given size.

But Fans = Revenue, and Revenue = Facilities+Coaches = Players, and Players = Wins = Fans.
So really, Fans = Revenue = Players.

"Likely to only compound an earlier departmental mistake, which was to expand the amount of student seating in the first place"
I keep hearing this, and it's dumb. All students who want one and can pay up are guaranteed a student season ticket - there is not a lottery and nobody gets turned down. The size of the student section is entirely a function of how many students purchase season tickets.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Eh, this is already a PR||
Eh, this is already a PR mess. You could ease into it and be okay. And you don't have to significantly oversell to make a big dent in the perceived emptiness of the stadium.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Well, again, why wouldn't we?||
Well, again, why wouldn't we? You don't seriously think they tracked no shows just to shame us, do you?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||You don't think Dave "dolla||
You don't think Dave "dolla dolla bill y'all" Brandon would do that? After doubling the price for MBB tickets and increasing football tickets by 50%?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Why does it have to be whole||
Why does it have to be whole sections? Rope off the top half of a section and sell single game seats in the nosebleeds. Student seats have to be bought well before the season - plenty of time to work out the ideal section size and sell single game seats for the remainder, just as they do with other season tix.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||No they won't, because they||
No they won't, because they won't be student seats anymore. 22,000 tickets will be sold for 18,000 seats. Voila, packed student section, DB laughs all the way to the bank.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Everyone is missing the big||
Everyone is missing the big obvious thing when they say "yah but seats will still be empty" - There WILL be over sold seats. Which is to say, the AD has worked out that x% of student tix will be no-shows for a given game, and the student section will be shrunk accordingly to allow full price asses to fill the remaining seats.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Not fair to count the||
Not fair to count the validations - a re-sale is not a no-show, and few non AA area fans with season tix (at full price) go to every game. Plus some students will sell one marquee game at market price to fund the rest of the season.
