See him there every other Sunday like clockwork right when it opens. I know his son too so usually that's what we talk about.

Like i said did a google search. Nothing but his football info.

Did you see Wisconsin's conference schedule in 2014
They play Nw, Illinois, Maryland Rutgers, Purdue, Nebraska,Iowa and Minnesota.
No PSU, MSU, OSU or us. You'd think they'd at least throw one of the better teams from the other division on that crossover schedule. What a cakewalk.
|1 week 2 days ago||Jeez||
That is horrible. Had better be another year under Hoke where we win out at home.
|1 week 2 days ago||That'll happen every year||
Both R and MD are in our division so we'll get them every year.
The thing I can't believe is that they didn't split up the home and road games of our two remaining rivals. We'll have both Ohio and Staee on the home roster in the odd years and neither in even.

I went down to Cass Tech for DCFC games twice last year and had a great time. Hoping to go Friday and to a couple more games. Hope they're popping smoke often on Friday night.
Lots of Wolverines and a former Wolverine (Knox Cameron) playing for DCFC this summer.

Simple analogy for you. At the home I previously lived at the quickest way from my office to my home was to have to take a four lane road to get to the street I lived on. Right near my house that four lane main road cut the speed limit to 25 mph. It was ridiculous and more often than not there was a cop sitting hidden somewhere in that span who was essentially shooting fish in a barrel. The 25 mph zone was stupid and an obvious speed trap to make the city money. That said, if I wanted to get home the quickest way, I had to take that road and either go fast and run the risk of getting a ticket, or follow the stupid law and drive slow. If I really opposed the stupid speed rule, I could go a different route to get home.
No different for Webber. I don't need to get into an argument over whether or not the fact that he or other premier college athletes get a piece of the action. In many ways I agree. That said, you want to travel that road, you have to follow the rules.

Hope this kid sticks around for three years and is a great Olympian.

I wish the NFL and NBA would just do minor leagues like the MLB and NHL. If these f'ing kids don't want to be at school or are so great and concerned about the schools cashing in on them, then go do like the hockey and baseball players do and sign with your team and develop in the minors. Just sick of this back and forth already.

This may be unpopular but I don't think the Fab Five wants to be freed. I think four of the five want to keep their contacts with the University but I have yet to hear anything from Chris Webber that leads me to believe he WANTS to have any affiliation with the University. The guy wouldn't even sit with the other four for the NCAA game. I have yet to hear anything from him other than stating the system is to blame and not him. He declined to comment in the Fab Five documentary when he could very well have stated his opinion and taken the first step towards mending fences. Unless I'm reading the above texts wrong, it sounds like his prophecy of "getting sooo real" is going to be just more blaming others and the system.
Personally, I'd love to see the University honor the Fab Five, but I'm not convinced Webber would show. I still think in some way he blames the University right along side the NCAA and the proverbial system. While in many ways I agree with his point that athletes are getting hosed while the University makes money, he chose to participate in that system and be broke the rules (however unfair they may be). How hard would it be for him to just come out and say. "I think the rules are bullshit, but yes I broke them and I'm sorry if that caused anyone any unhappiness."

No one else makes much sense but Ways with a slight possibility of Marshall.

The only way that happens is if Snyder loses the election and the search is still ongoing in late 2014. No idea if that will be the case. All indications are that Snyder is going to run again so he wouldn't know if he was out until very late in the process. There are so many other good candidates that I can't imagine it won't be filled by then. That said, if the process is slow and all the various bureaucratic steps haven't been fulfilled by the time that election ends, I guess its possible. That said, for those circumstances to happen, he would have just come off an election defeat. Will he be that popular of a choice at that point?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I humbly||
I humbly accept your nomination.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Touches nose!||
Exactly. Its not about the A.D. position. Its Brandon himself. He's super wealthy. Been the CEO of two of Michigan's largest corporations (Domino's and Valasis). He is so politically connected in the Republican party there was talk of him running for Governor instead of Snyder. Add that he was a Regent which means Mary Sue had to deal with him as essentially her boss and you have a relationship different than the average President and A.D.
Its the person, not the position.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||If||
If Brandon were to ever go, I do wonder if he isn't grooming Hunter Lochman to replace him.

|5 weeks 5 days ago||What was the final||
What was the final class rating. Were we top 5? Obviously Kentucky was #1. Just curious where we stood.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Come on guys||
I'm begging here. I've been getting belted like every half hour by SU crap. I just used the McGary pic above. (Thx)
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Don't get me wrong||
Don't get me wrong b/c I've net Coach Paul and like him a lot but knowing Dave Brandon and his somewhat heavy axe hand, if they go winless, are we looking at a new coach?
|7 weeks 6 days ago||I love you Sparty||
I love you for being the predictable dumbasses we have come to know you as. Keep burning down your couches and making public asses of yourselves. You're falling in the family pecking order to drunk embarrassing drunk uncle who will only get invites to family events until grandma dies.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||How about||
How about an update for those of us who can't get ESPN 3. By now the 1650 should be over and the final session should have started. Did we clean up as expected in 1650?
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Exactly||
+1 for you sir.
The truth is that we'll add two east coast schools (UVA and maybe UNC) and those will have to stay east and then Purdue and Indiana will both go west and the new schools will have to stay east to creat east coast rivalries
