i don't know what nick baumgardner's background is and i'm not much a fan of mlive. but i like most of nick's articles, and his twitter response to the chad lindsay decision was more onpoint than anything else i've seen. he wrote simply "win games." and that's the answer to all of your questions. win games and you appease the fan base. win games and you win recruiting wars. win games and people stop questioning coaches, ticket policies, etc. there's not much nuance in reading hoke's tea leaves. if he wins, he'll stay. if he doesn't, he'll get fired. whether that's at the end of this year or the end of next year probably won't matter in the long run. if he can win games, he'll do it consistently and if he's not winnning soon he won't ever do it. all this is a way of saying there are no golden nuggets of thoughts here and no sense in outlining a timeline. if he doesn't win more, he'll be gone eventually.

IU is turning into a tirefire. i wonder whether the drumbeat to dump crean will grow now that mike woodson is a free agent (not that i think mike woodson would solve their problems).

he didn't eat enough carbohydrates to have the energy to spin.

fair point. i didn't read the article, just the OP's description.

going to college = underage drinking. this is one time where i hope the slap on the wrist is exactly that.

do you mean to tell me that if you're a dick to most of your fans some of them might not renew their tickets? i thought we had a business genius running the AD.

did he say anything about transfers? or lack thereof?
|5 days 10 hours ago||actually i don't think that||
actually i don't think that many people around these parts would disagree with you. students don't have full time jobs. $300 is a lot of money for a student.
dave brandon acts like he has shareholders. he needs the stock price to go up immediately and doesn't worry about the long term. college sports loyalty doesn't work like a business. today's students are tomorrow's donors and if you don't get the hooked now they're not going to donate down the line.
|5 days 10 hours ago||i can't think of tickets to||
i can't think of tickets to any other event that cost three times more now than they did in 1997. also, one of the reasons every student got tickets in 1997 were that they were cheap. charging $295 probably turns a lot of students off. the same students that are going to be future donors. moreover, tuition, which has skyrocketed, hasn't even gone up at the same rate as student tickets.

for the 1997 championship season, student tickets were less than $100 for the entire season.

player input is a little known reason why michigan didn't end up with nate lubick. the players hated him and it isn't clear if we wouldn't taken him if he wanted to come to michigan.

you really haven't developed as much as you'd hoped since high school, but surely another year of my training will do the trick. stay in school!
