Start paying players, and these kind of cost cutting measures will hit schools everywhere. Obvioiusly not us, and not any Big Ten schools, but schools in conferences like the MAC will start with this.
In a bubble, paying players seems fair. But only a small group of schools could afford to do it without cutting elsewhere and that includes cutting other sports, both men and women.

I simply cannot take the National bias again. And Westwood radio with those morons is just as bad. Even a list of local stations that are carrying the game gives me a shot to search via Iheart, etc.. Thanks to anyone who helps.
|34 weeks 4 days ago||It's been a great ride........||
Either way it has been fun and it's nice to enjoy college basketball again. A win would simply put a big maize bow on things. Go Blue!

|2 years 36 weeks ago||advice||
Here is my advice... First go to Hotwire and book your flight, hotel, and car together. It will be much cheaper than booking seperately. Second, root hard for North Dakota to lose today. If they make it, tickets will triple.
I have been to the Frozen Four at least 10 times. Here is what I have learned. Buy a ticket to the semi final games. At the end of the other game, go hang out at the back of the section of the losing team. You will be able to do two things, one, pick up their ticket for the final game cheap and two, possibly upgrade your seat for the first game for next too nothing.
Three years ago, I had a third level seat. We watched the first game from up there. As the first game was ending, I went down and offer the students on the glass $10 bucks for their ticket stub. That stub got me on the glass for our loss to ND. It sucked we lost, but I saw it from a great seat.
Wish I could afford to come this year, but have fun everyone, I will be watching from home in Texas.

Look fairly ordinary. If Moffet turns the puck over up the middle like he did today, we will be in trouble. But if we keep the puck up the boards and in deep, I like our chances.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Vasav...go home||
I don't know where in Texas you supposedly live, but I think you need to leave. Almost everything you say about Texas above is just simply factually incorrect. I was born and raised in Texas, went to UM for both undergraduate and law school, and now have come home.
Foreclosures were lower in Texas than all but 3 other states. High School graduation rates are higher than all but 4 other states. The average earning for a resident in Texas is higher than all be 8 other states and the highest of the largest states in the US.
The reason for the strength of Texas is actually very simply. Texas is a pro business state. Very low regulations, no state income tax and most importantly, NO UNIONS. I know that those of you who grew up in Michigan don't want to hear that but the facts are the facts.
States that have been heavily unionized are dying a slow (now faster) death. Unions had their place 40 years ago to protect their workers from unfair conditions, but that is no longer the case. With improvments in many areas, most importantly in available information via media and the internet, an employer cannot abuse their employees for very long without being found out.
So please pack up your uhaul and go find a job elsewhere. For those who are looking for a great place to live and work, please come visit. We have plenty of jobs and oppurtunities for those who are willing to work for it. But if you are looking for a handout or for some group to help protect your job for you, Texas is not the best place.

Bring on Duke. We can do this!
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Three surprises already||
Somebody is going to be sad in a minute. Either Michigan St or Penn St. is now out. No way we get screwed......is there?
|2 years 45 weeks ago||we all||
need more moments like these in our lives.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||He will||
I am gaining confidence each and every day. Whether its him or someone else, I truly feel like we are moving forward with this thing. Maybe Hoke should help out with the BB recruiting. There are plenty of two sport stars out there, go get us one!
|2 years 46 weeks ago||need more talent||
Bottom line, at a school like Michigan, the name alone should bring one or two above average prospects. Just like our issues with Kicker, there is no excuse in my mind to allow for the lack of talent in either area.
I think the issue, more than recruiting, is talent evaluation. So many mid-major teams in BB find 2 and 3 star guys and they end up being guys that take a team two or three rounds into the NCAA's every few years. The fact we can't find that guy every once in a while, tells me he can't see the future when looking at these kids.
Game coaching is also lacking, in my opinion, but it's the ability to spot the diamonds in the rough that is really lacking here. Just watch the first two rounds of the tourny and tell me that half of the leading scorers wouldn't have walked to AA to be a part of this program, if only asked.

Tell Denard you love and want him as your QB!!!
|2 years 47 weeks ago||count me in!||
I'll pay $5 for a droid app.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||when will we know?||
What is the most likely drop dead date for current players (see Denard) to leave? Do they need permission to leave? I want to know when WE will know who is staying and who is going? Who is stilling committing and who is decomitting?
Everything is just speculation right now but I want to know WHEN!
|2 years 47 weeks ago||OC||
How about that crazy bastard from Texas Tech as the OC?
|2 years 47 weeks ago||current players||
With all of the information on here, surely someone has a little insight on what Denard, et all. are thinking??? There is no way all the players are keeping quiet on what they are or are not are planning. Are we all watching the coaching ball too close and missing the fact that Denard has already moved out of his dorm and enrolled at a community college accross the street from Oregon?
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Feels good||
To see I am in the majority. I too wanted either Jimmy or status quo with new DC. Here is the sad part, as of right this moment, I can't imagine any coach that is going to make me feel any better any time soon. Things can only get worse... coach I really don't like, more losses in the recruiting area, Denard transfers (death). I really don't see any upside at this moment.
Best case is I don't want to kill myself between now and early September. I hope I am suprised but I doubt it.
|2 years 47 weeks ago||until we||
find someone VERY speical.
What about Jimmy Johnson?
|2 years 47 weeks ago||Ncaa vs NIT||
I would rather play in the NIT and win a few games than play a two or three seed in the NCAA and get blown out. Very nice showing though and it gives me hope we might win a surpise game or two in conference this year.

wake me up when this is all over.

TCU comes a close second to the blue, just so you know where I am coming from. Here is my take... as for my emotions, I am certainly torn. He is a fantastic coach. He would immediately move several of the excess talent on offense and make them all big ten on D. He recruits athletes and good men and plugs them in wherever he can best use them. Bottom line, he is a better fit than the dead man in SF.
As for whether he would come or not, hard to tell. Here is what I can tell you about my gut on that point. GP has made it a point, not just this year but always, to never slam the BCS, big conferences, etc.. He didnt even take the bait when that jackass from OHIO challenged TCU and Boise. What I have always believe was he followed this because A) he is a gentleman and B) because he knew he would be a part of the party soon enough. Low and behold, TCU is now in a BCS conference. But was that his plan or has he had his eyes on something like this?
Anyway, while I hope he does make the jump (mostly because TCU would be ok without him and we most likely will not be ok without him), I don't think he comes. TCU is rebuilding their stadium, in a crappy BCS confernce where he will most likely compete every year for a BCS game and National Title. His recruiting roots are here and he is just now winning that battle with UT, A&M, etc..
So pray all you want, but my gut says no, not this time. But I sure hope I am wrong. I have several friends down here who are connected, if I hear anything , I will pass it along.

If we can't have confidence this week, then we might as well shut down this site and go home. Sometimes you just have to call a no hitter a no hitter and have the faith things are for real this time. I believe, I think.....
|3 years 12 weeks ago||another thought||
To me it is a little more simple than all this. TF is going one of two directions: either transfering out or switching positions (maybe saftey?). He is 100% gone as far as a QB is concerned, DG or no DG. With that in mind, why would RR blow any snaps on a guy who won't be at QB next year. All the other thoughts, like Denard switching positions, etc.. might play a little into it as well. Also, from a recruiting perspective, redshirting DG would make it harded to get the targeted QB's in here next year. TF is not a pro QB and hopefully he will be willing to make a switch to defense.

At this point, I am not sure I can believe a word that Herbie says. I think he is simply trying to cover his arse. He has a really tough time covering his true feelings about us and I am sure he gets it from his bosses to be careful. As for this opinion, I am tempering my feelings as much as possible. I want to believe, deep down I do believe.... but I have been hurt so many times.. Better to expect the worst and be surprised than the other way around, right? There should be some benefit to suffering through the last two years. Go blue!
