The reason your post sucks is that it hardly says anything. I didn't even know if it was basketball or hockey before looking at the comments.

Seriously. How backwards can the NCAA get?

Speaking of teacher connections, one of my high school English teachers graduated with Madonna. Easy to forget the age of celebrities, but it's weird seeing Madonna the sex symbol and then her classmate, a gray-haired woman well into middle age. Amazing what you can do with botox, photoshopping, and an army of people whose job is to make you look good.

Yeah. You're just not at intellectual of, say, a Matt Millen. Sorry.

Does "top suitor" mean most attractive school?
Is South Carolina really a top suitor in Texas? I'd take out about half of the SEC and substitute A&M, Baylor, and TCU. Baylor and TCU aren't historically good (though TCU might have been pretty good before IIRC), but they're good now with good facilities and they're in-state.
Stewart Mandel occasionally ranks programs in tiers too. This is what he did in 2012: http://www.si.com/more-sports/2012/07/11/kings-barons-knights-peasants-m...
He has 13 teams in the top tier and Michigan is in it. Hard to argue with it.

We'll see. Harbaugh did seem to have Oregon's number when he was at Stanford. However, I wouldn't bet on Harbaugh doing what Carr did to Cooper (or Tressel to Carr). I'll be happy with a .500 record or better against Meyer over the next 10 years, assuming he's there that long.

Yeah, seeing Wiscy and Oregon there in the 20 year timeframe was surprising.
FSU started heading downhill even before Bowden was forced out. That's why he was forced out. Having said that, they never dropped off THAT much. I wonder what their worst record was during that down period.
I don't wanna be fair to ND, but to be fair to ND, they do almost always play one of the toughest schedules. Scheduling is a big factor in a lot of these. The B1G has been really down, so that's why OSU is so high on there recently. Granted, those Bowden FSU teams were certainly elite, but it still helped playing in the ACC.

"Unfortunately, their message doesn't always resonate with the modern player." LOL what? College football is definitely not any dirtier than it used to be. You think hostesses and money changing hands is new? Players getting away with things they shouldn't? You know how 'roided up a lot of teams were in the past?
|1 day 7 hours ago||Could/should they poach Utah?||
Could/should they poach Utah? They're better than any of the other programs mentioned here and they don't have any longstanding affiliation with the Pac-12. Obviously BYU would be a bigger rival than anyone in the Pac-12 as well.

Your comment is mostly true. It's amazing a state with as much talent as Ohio doesn't even have an MSU, but Florida has WAY more talent overall than Ohio.

Brian and others usually focus on how bad Rutgers is and how the TV revenue isn't all it's cracked up to be, but Stewart Mandel wrote a good article about how the expansion seemed necessary because of the shrinking B1G recruiting footprint.

Crime is a part of normal society too. Does that mean there's nothing wrong with crime and we shouldn't do anything to prevent it?

Apparently the guy you replied to got banned or at least the comment taken down. I saw it on the app and had to come to reply. It was an insane comment to make. Prostitution is one of the prime arenas for human trafficking. I think a lot of people, mostly men, convince themselves that it's all on the up and up because they wanna do it and the women don't obviously look like they're being coerced or enslaved or scared into compliance.

It may be better; I'm certainly not one to evaluate that. But I think Spike had a really good Assist/TO ratio last year.

|4 days 3 hours ago||The money gets to the players||
The money gets to the players in some way, but because of NCAA rules, it's done in some of the most frivolous ways. If the players could just get paid directly, they could use that money on more practical stuff, like helping their often poor families for one thing, rather than outlandish locker rooms. And yes, they'll spend it on things like booze too, but so what? It's still better than wasting it on plush leather chairs that aren't used all that often and smoothie bars.
EDIT: I'm sure you know this. Just replying to your comment since mine is relevant to it.

Don't send a message to that e-mail or twitter account specifically set up for people to communicate. That's cyber-bullying.

"that we created. that we were a part of" Who's 'we'? Certainly not every student is going to take part in creating it.

We've all done embarrassing things, many of which are in photos and videos and memories. No, you don't just get to take it all back. That's life. Grow up. Yes, more than the usual number have seen that photo, but no one's going to even give a shit about this story in another day or 2.
Furthermore, everyone is talking about what an embarrassing photo that is, but the guy voluntarily posted it on Twitter! He obviously didn't think it was embarrassing. He thought he was being a sweet brah. This is like criticizing people who make fun of Jersey Shore. The moral outrage here is nauseating.
