Not a lawyer, but my understanding is that the regulations must be essential if the product is going to exist at all. So, regarding not paying players, can argue that this makes the product unique and therefore is essential for the product to exist. As far as schools not holding satellite camps in certain areas, I'm not sure that's even close to essential for college football to exist in its current form.

How did Harbaugh's first Stanford class look? How good was Stanford when JH left?

Consumer is almost always on the losing end because of "capture."

Oh, and capitalism doesn't actually work super well for the little guy w/out the Shearman Act, assuming the government actually enforces the Act--we'll see if the Comcast Time Warner merger goes through.

So Rutgers, Penn State, and Maryland studends should alwys have to travel further than Michigan students?

What is Chicago? NYC is bigtime.

Chicago isn't "just as good" as NYC.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||LOL at everyone complaining||
LOL at everyone complaining about NYC. There are quite a few Michigan alumni here who will be pleased.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||But John Bacon said Brandon||
But John Bacon said Brandon was the reason we don't have Harbaugh.
And John Bacon threw our last coach to win a National Championship under the bus.
Yet everyone loves John Bacon.
|2 years 11 weeks ago||But John Bacon said that Dave||
But John Bacon said that Dave Brandon was the reason we didn't get Harbaugh four years ago!
Oh, that's right, he said it because he wanted Brandon gone for his own reasons.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Read fail. I still don't||
Read fail. I still don't trust him.
Also, 50/50 is 1% away from "betting against" something. 51/49 and you bet on 51.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||LOL. What a fraud Bacon is.||
What a fraud Bacon is. He tells everyone that Harbaugh won't come if DB is still here. Now, after he got what he wants, he tells everyone he would bet against Harbaugh coming here.
While your at it, Bacon, can you please write another book that has excerpts in it slamming our last football coach to win a National Championship? Thanks.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||This sounds fantastic to me.||
This sounds fantastic to me. But it misses the issue. Will those potential ADs be able to or willing to spend the money that landing Harbaugh requires? The type of money that DB proved he was willing to spend.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||"Rebut what?" On this board||
On this board people offer opinions and often rebuttals to others' opinions.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||It's looking likely that we||
It's looking likely that we will miss on this coaching hire. It's looking like people were bilked into believing Harbaugh wouldn't come if DB was here, when in fact DB was our best chance at landing Harbaugh.
That's what it looks like to me. Someone please rebut; I'd gladly welcome it.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||DB also paid coaches, which||
DB also paid coaches, which was not exactly a proclivity of previous Michigan ADs.
How many people will be happy that DB is gone if we end up with an AD that puts Michigan more "in line with academics" and therefore decides that paying a coach top dollar would send the wrong message? Plenty would be unhappy, as many were convinced that the reason we didn't have Harbaugh was because of DB.
Many were tricked by John Bacon and others into believing that DB being gone would give us a shot at Harbaugh. They are slowly starting to realize that DB was likely our best shot, as he was willing to spend money.
And, for the record, I wasn't thrilled with DB either. But I'd gladly take Chobani Under the Lights and Harbaugh than academic focused AD and __insert name here__.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Welp, this is what happens||
Welp, this is what happens when those who wanted DB gone for reasons other than the football team's performance convinced many Michigan fans that DB was responsible for not landing Harbaugh. Now, shortly after DB's resignation, Michigan fans begin to realize that odds are starting to look like the next AD won't be willing (or maybe able) to spend the type of money DB was willing to spend to get a coach like Harbaugh. Then, they realize, they got conned by people who said DB was the reason Harbaugh isn't coaching Michigan.
But John Bacon is happy.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Yup. Thanks, Bacon, for||
Thanks, Bacon, for painting Lloyd Carr as one of the worst things that has happened to Michigan football.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||I'm not sure you understand||
I'm not sure you understand what Bacon is doing, so let me spell out the logic for you:
Jim H will answer the phone if any AD at Michigan calls about the head coaching position. If I could draw on a whiteboard, there would be a large circle with Michigan AD in it.
Jim H will answer the phone if a new AD calls him. If I could draw on a whiteboard, there would be a small circle that says new AD inside the larger circle that says Michigan AD.
If you can't see that this guy has no information outside of what everyone else has, then you are blind. The guy is being very careful with the statements he makes, so as to garner as much support as possible for axing DB.
People with just as much knowledge, if not more, have stated that the best chance at getting Jim H for next year requires keeping DB. And it makes sense, not only for timing reasons, but because one thing DB has shown is that he will actually spend money.
Everyone here wants to go back to the old way of Michigan football. No branding, etc. Well, guess what comes with branding? A lot of money to spend on a new football coach. And guess what, Schlissel may very likely love nothing more than for football to be an afterthought to academics. You could easily infer that, just like Bacon has inferred every piece of "inside knowledge" he spews.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Agree. When RR was here he||
Agree. When RR was here he had more knowledge, but that was because he had an all-access press pass.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||Can we please elaborate on||
Can we please elaborate on the "best of his knowledge?" Thanks.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Incorrect. He said won't||
Incorrect. He said won't come "from the current administration" not won't "come here under" the current administration. Do you understand the difference? If not, I can't help you.
You sir, are the source of misinformation. As I continue to point out.
Stop misquoting others to further your agenda! It does not display integrity that is expected of Michigan students/alumni.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||We get it--you've heard a lot||
We get it--you've heard a lot of things, including hearing things from Brian.
Stop saying "fact." "Brian alluded to the fact . . ." Guess what, it isn't fact. Stop acting like it is. It could be true that JH and DB don't get along. It could also be BS. Further, it could be used to spread ire against DB by those who want DB gone for other reasons besides his (in)ability to hire a competent head coach.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Sam Webb never said they||
Sam Webb never said they don't get along. Stop misquoting people. Exhibit some integrity.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||And that is why Drew Sharp no||
And that is why Drew Sharp no longer has a press pass--Brandon revoked it for not coming out in his corner. /s.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||There is no hard evidence||
There is no hard evidence that JH and DB don't get along.
The two strikes you refer to are perceptions that became reality due to mgoblog groupthink.
