Yup. Baylor doesn't have the history of tradition of PSU either.
|4 days 8 hours ago||Are you serious?||
"kudos to Baylor's administrators for doing a small part toward restoring our faith and perspective in what really matters in the world."
Are you serious OP? You know that:
1) This came about because the victim filed a Title IX lawsuit (and subsequent ESPN OTL investigation), not because the Baylor administration finally found some moral compass
2) Effectively, nothing is happening to the President & AD, who by all accounts fostered the atmosphere of covering up rape.
Why exactly should we praise Baylor? Because they fired Briles? They had to fire somebody and he was the lowest on the totum pole and after the report came out they didn't have an option.
|4 days 10 hours ago||They are not||
How many times in the last 10 years (timeframe includes the financial crisis) have CEO's been successfully sued for breach or fiduciary duty? Even if CEOs are sued, the company's D&O policy would cover the legal costs and damages, so the CEO doesn't pay a cent of their own money either defending the lawsuit or in damages.
|4 days 11 hours ago||OP,||
Briles wasn't technically fired. He was "suspended with intent to terminate". I guess that intent could change, but he hasn't been fired yet.
Starr was also demoted to "Chancellor" and is still a professor in the Law school and the AD was placed on probation.
Basically, nothing has happened yet and that's sad.
|4 days 11 hours ago||The LTT incident was||
The LTT incident was different and just because Harbaugh acted one way, doesn't mean Briles should have done the same.
Don't get me wrong. I'm proud of what Harbaugh did and think Briles is a slimy scumbag.
My point is that without an arrest or a charge or some video proof or something, other than a he said-she said when the police investigate and decide not to arrest/ charge the player, what Briles didn't do makes sense.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Not Gord||
But I think Gord's point is if the cops talk to Briles and say Player X has been accused of rape, but the alleged victim does not want to press charges and we will not charge or arrest the player, but it's very likely he did it and intimidated the victim, but we have no proof. What should Briles do? Kick the player off the team, even though he was never arrested or charged?
|4 days 11 hours ago||This is what I don't understand.||
If a crime is reported to the Police and they do nothing, doesn't the blame fall on them?
As usual, nobody speaks out against the Blue Wall!

Harbaugh earned a lot of respect after last year's camp in Easton. He had almost every smaller north east and mid-Atlantic school represented (>2,000 kids and a ton of M fans). Rutgers doesn't stand a chance.

he's good friends with Greg Schiano (his kid played for Schiano at Rutgers).

Not true at all for most Honda and Toyota cars. They don't depreciate that much and it's worth it (IMO) to buy new and know the car was taken care of properly for the first 3-4 years.

Don't like it with a 4 team playoff. One of the P5, maybe 3, if ND is ranked high enough is automatically out. 3 cupcakes help a 1 loss B1G winner.

Haha. We both came up with the porn analogy at the same time. Not quite Eskmio brothers, but great minds...

Let's take a non-political arguement. Porn!
Would I do it? No, do I want my kids to? No. Do I think it should be banned? No. Would I pay for it (no comment).

|1 week 4 days ago||I got 3 solid benefits of adding Rutgers to the B1G:||
1) Opens the NJ recruiting market to other B1G teams. Previously, the top talent in NJ would go to PSU or USC or a random Southern team. Now Michigan gets 4-7 good to great prospects/ year.
2) Allows NYC alumni a chance to go to an "away" game every other year. Last time Michigan visited Rutgers, the UM Alumni Association busses people down for the game and a lot of local alumni showed up. This is good for donations.
3) Appaently, Rutgers only gets paid $10M per year, while MD gets $20 and the rest get $30. Are Indiana, Perdue, and Illinois better than Rutgers (from a sports perspective). Absolutely. Are they worth an extra $20M each? Probably not, especially because they are not in the NYC market.

|1 week 6 days ago||Nike?||
I'm sure Nike (and their competitors) didn't pay all of the money to Michigan (and our competitors) to have a small logo, next to a much bigger one.
I guess the uniform contracts would have to be negotiated first.
If the additional money is used to pay players, then I'm all for it, otherwise, no.

Here is the reddit link though:

Thanks. I guess it's unrelated to the Yahoo rumors then.

Do you think it has anything to do with the Yahoo rumor that Yahoo will be split up and auctioned off? Maybe as a standalone entity, rivals wasn't "profitable" so they are cutting costs?
