No, it's ironic because 99% of the time it's the recruit that gets screwed over in recruiting. In this case is the school getting screwed by the recruit. So because it's contrary to what you'd normally expect to happen in recruiting, that makes it ironic.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Dumb rule||
Its a dumb rule and they definitely got screwed, but I find it pretty damn funny. After them screwing over some recruits by backing out on them at the last minute, it kinda feels good to see them get screwed by a recruit backing out on them. Karmic justice.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Pretty sure it'll be ESPN.||
Pretty sure it'll be ESPN. NBC doesn't have the real estate for Big Ten football games, and FOX is already pretty heavily involved with the Big 12 and Pac 12. ESPN has way more money than FOX to spend on this and won't let the Big Ten package get away from them.
|1 day 20 hours ago||You do know ABC owns ESPN,||
You do know ABC owns ESPN, right? (And Disney owns both) ESPN is essentially ABC's sports division. And since they did a much better job than ABC was doing on their own they just made everything "ESPN on ABC" years ago.

Luck has nothing to do with it. "I wasn't lucky" is the anthem of the losers. You work hard and prepare so that when the opportunity comes you can take advantage of it. And more often than not, your hard work and preparation will create the opportunity for you.
JaMarcus had his opportunity, did not work hard, and did not prepare for it. And that's why he failed. "Bad luck" at being on the Raiders had nothing to do with it.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Yeah, its an annoying trend||
Its definitely an annoying trend. Although I will say I don't think Rinaldi and most of the ESPN reporters are guilty of this. He generally asks good questions. This is something you generally see from beat reporters and reporters at smaller stations. I also know for a fact ESPN has a guy on staff that offers regular seminars on how to (and how not to) ask questions, and those that resort to the "talk about" style of questioning get called out in house and told they need to stop.
|2 days 22 hours ago||What's annoying about this is||
What's annoying about this is that the actual question would be much shorter and clearer than the rambling "talk about" mess: "How do you go about building competition in practice?"
|3 days 3 hours ago||Talk about...||
Can you talk about how you feel about reporters?
Shit drives me nuts, and I work in the media. Ask a question dummies.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Maybe its a typo||
Maybe its a typo and he's actually 6-4, 194. That would still be skinny but would make a lot more sense.
|4 days 16 hours ago||All the RBs added weight||
I'm pretty sure all the RBs added weight. This is probably a directive from Harbaugh.
|4 days 16 hours ago||That's what I'm saying||
That's what I'm saying though, he's in a program where they tell you what to eat, lift and train to add mass. 6-4, 174 is too skinny for WR. A 5'11" 195 CB could push him around all day long. Shit, on a windy day he might get blown over.
|4 days 19 hours ago||6-4, 174lbs is crazy skinny||
6-4, 174lbs is crazy skinny. Like youve got to work at it to be that skinny. Wonder whats up with him. Would seem to be a good 20lbs away from seeing the field.

That's the real #MichiganDifference there. Knowing which island is the more appropriate Napoleon analog.
|1 week 19 hours ago||Don't have any clips handy or||
Don't have any clips handy or anything like that, but I clearly remember seeing clips and replays where he was playing like a guy not giving a fuck -- not a guy that was trying and just couldn't give it his all becaasue his body wouldn't let him. It was obvious enough that I wondered why Hoke even had a guy showing that little effort playing. That's where the venom from the board comes from. We cut Gardner plenty of slack for his performance even though that was affected by a lot of the same issues Funchess had, but Gardner continually gave it his all out there. Funchess didn't.
|1 week 20 hours ago||There's a big difference||
There's a big difference between dropping balls and showing a complete lack of effort game after game. Lots of receivers drop balls and that can be forgiven, but a lack of effort is tough to forgive and overlook.
|1 week 1 day ago||You're right||
You're right. I copied the wrong stats down. He played 35min a game so they are pretty close, but the actual averages are 16.7p/6.9r/9.1a/3.1s/0.3b
|1 week 1 day ago||Could only find one that's done it||
To average that, you'd have to be an all-time great. I mean, Jason Kidd (one of the best triple double threats in the last several decades of basketball) is the only one I could find that's averaged 19/6/6 or better. His last year at Cal, he went for 19/7.9/10, added 3 steals per game, but only 0.3 blocks per game.
Grant Hill (your other triple double threat from the last few decades) came closest to what OP thinks Caris will do when he averaged 17.4ppg / 7.7rpg / 5.8apg /1.9 spg / 1.2 bpg as a senior.
So our guy here is basically saying Caris would be a slightly better version of senior year Grant Hill. OK.
|1 week 1 day ago||Those are all-timer production numbers||
I would venture a guess that only 1-2 people in the last decade or two have averaged anywhere close to that, and wouldn't be surprised if no one has done it. That's a ridiculous level of production for a player in college.
|1 week 1 day ago||What was her point?||
What the hell was the point in her writing that? The whole thing could be summed as tl;dr -- cost of living varies.
|1 week 2 days ago||My favorite part from the new Daily article||
The notion that they "were interested in reaching out to the music dept" was my favorite part of the new Daily article on this committee of shitheads. They've formed a giant unwieldy coalition of asshattery, and haven't reached out to anyone associated with actually making good music.
Maybe this is all part of some secret Ross test. Like their professors aren't exactly encouraging this, but not exactly dissuading them either. And once it gets far enough, the dean will pop out of a bush and yell WRONG MOTHERFUCKERS! BAD BUSINESS ACCUMEN!! NO B-SCHOOL DEGREE FOR YOU!!
|1 week 3 days ago||Or Jay||
Or we could remember we already have two Harbaughs on staff in Jim and Jay.

I think he's saying its a southern restaurant that spread to the Midwest and other places. CB's headquarters and first location is in Tennessee.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Valuable lesson||
You guys are way overblowing the "bullying" aspect here. Kid wants to work in business, and this is an incredibly valuable lesson of what can happen when you attempt to mess with a brand. It'll probably be a better learning experience than anything else has learned or will learn in b-school. When coming up with new ideas, know your customer base. And know what can happen when a bad idea makes it into the public. People in the real world get fired for shit like this.
You'd think witnessing what happened to Dave Brandon first hand would be lesson enough for everyone at Ross, but I guess not. Maybe having something like this hit closer to home will drive the point home.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Transfer?||
Maybe they can trasnfer to The University of Go Fuck Yourself.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Still bummed||
I'm still bummed that never happened. I'm also bummed that current students never had to endure the nightmare that was the CRISP lady.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Some idiot students thought it was cool||
Because some moronic future Brandon clones in the student population thought it would be cool. I hope when the CSG votes on this, they just replay the moderator's "everyone is now dumber" speech from Billy Madison and then tell the students to GTFO while blaring The Victors.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||That makes no sense||
I don't see what the academics has to do with anything. Unless I'm completely misunderstanding this, you're saying Hoke opted to play guys as true freshman because they wanted to graduate in four years and wouldn't be on the team in year five as a redshirt senior? I've been following college football a LONG time and can't ever remember an instance where someone left the team with a year of eligibility left because they had graduated and wanted to go join the working world ASAP.
If anything, that logic does the academic kids a disservice because if you're only giving them four years of scholarship by playing them as true freshman, you're depriving them of at least a year of free grad school. Which if you're really serious about academics would be pretty important I would think.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I think you're||
I think you're oversimplifying the "is who he is" argument. Almost everyone can benefit from being held back a year. And there's a big difference between a true junior who doesn't look like he's going to ever figure it out and a redshirt sophomore who looks the exact same. And for the "they are who they are" crowd of backups and role players having that extra year of experience is hugely important.

Maybe we can apply for some "coaching stupidity" redshirts for some of our other players too.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Got news for you: getting out||
Got news for you: getting out of the way of a good story and telling it ain't as easy as it seems. Really pisses me off when people down play the role of producers and reporters working on a story like this.
