They are different, but your examples are not a fair comparison.
Steroids are against the NFL rules because of an unfair competitive advantage and bumping an official/ purposefully injuring an opponent happens on the field of play.
The video (of his alleged uppercut) was never released to the press. I think we both agree that Ray Rice is a sack of sh*t, but the NFL (or any league) should not be able to suspend players (and deprive them of income) when the police don't charge the player, especially for cases where the offense is routinely charged. It's the only neutral way to handle things.
I understand why the NFL suspended him (for PR and to not have protests at games), but that's not a good enough opinion, IMO.

Damn Dave Brandon and his sleezy marketing tricks. He'll probably charge $5 for a hot dog. A. Hot. Dog.

$20 is a "money grab"? Seriously?
|7 hours 55 min ago||Was he convicted of anything?||
Apparently, the woman married him, but was he convicted? My stance is and will always be that conviction or an admission of guilt (even a no contest plea) should be the minimum before a league suspends anybody. Charges alone mean nothing, especially with corrupt police.

4 and 5*'s are often awarded after a kid has been offered by a big time program. The scouts themselves have no clue. They rely on guys like Saban, Meyer... To offer kids and then re-rank guys based on that (although they never say this).
|6 days 9 hours ago||That's dumb.||
a kid with offers from Alabama, USC, LSU, Ohio, PSU, Florida, Georgia, etc. would never be anything but a 4 or 5* kid (final rankings). Even if the sites thought the kid were a 2 or maybe a 3* kid, with offers like that, he'd be bumped to 4 or 5*s.
|6 days 9 hours ago||No.||
If journalists were actually good at predicting talent, they would be scouts, coaches, or something better than bottom feeders for scout/ rivals/ 247/ espn.
They have no clue and manufacture stories for page views (which apparently we love to give them).
This also explains the sudden bumps kids get when they are offered by big name programs and the ranking sites use offers to base stars on, so that at the end of the day, they look like they have a clue.

We shouldn't even have an electronic scoreboard. Where has the tradition gone?
|1 week 9 hours ago||Meh...||
all this shows is that Meyer doesn't have any class and attracts similarly minded players (we already know how their fanbase is).

Make good bank on airbnb and for charging for parking/ tailgating space. either that or students live there. Why would the complain?

this is huge for his PR/ endorsement machine. Hometwon hero returning home. His only other option would have been to stay with the Heat, but then they would have had to dump Wade.
It's LeBron's best PR and best chance of winning again (Irving and Wiggins).

On sat :( World Cup on Sunday :)
|2 weeks 8 hours ago||Great point||
I think you are correct. The number of scholarships and then the number of non graduating non revenue sport athletes is likely so low that it doesn't add much cost, especially on an incremental basis.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||I think money is a big deal,||
I'm not sure if Brian's point that any idiot would have gotten the same money since the B1G and expansion was a league issue is correct (it may be).
Cancelling the ND game was not his idea, but I generally liked the idea of the Jerryworld game (before I realized we were terrible that year). I also like the diverse scheduling, even with RU and MD.
Since we have to compete in non-revenue sports, I like that we have nice facilities and generally competitive teams and I think the athletic campus is amazing.
|2 weeks 9 hours ago||fair point,||
as I studied way too much. However, my point is that when the team is bad, there are other things to do (not necessairly pre-game), but watch on TV, hang with friends, or study. When the team is generally assured to win against good competition, the trend is make games a top priority.
If you disagree, just look at Basketball attendance from the mid-90s until like 2010.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Great idea||
But I don't know how you could only do this for football and mens basketball. If colleges do this for all sports it would be too costly for most schools.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||I'll address your gripes. 1)||
I'll address your gripes.
1) Non-revenue sports are important at Universities. Just ask any non D1 school. They bring in smart kids on scholarship and are in the true spirit of college sports. That said, I don't watch them either, but legally, Michigan has to comply with Title 9.
2) What do you want him to say? He's smart for not responding to your emails. You would immediately post them on MGo. Legally, he needs to give a PR response. It's common sense.
3) Students would rather party than see Michigan play shitty teams and (very sadly) maybe even lose to these teams. We are not the powerhouse we were. When students can be assured that Michigan will beat a decent team >75% of the time, then they will come to games and enjoy them. That's sadly not the case.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||He's a good 3-4 years||
from being a starter at Michigan, so that can be corrected for sure. Finally, some damn depth at QB!
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||I'm a huge Brandon supporter||
so I guess I'm not a cool kid on MGo.
1) Revenue up is a big deal - hiring Nuss, paying the b-ball coaches, and new facilities are all significant factors in Michigan being where we are today
2) Scheduling is decided years in advance, so we can't blame him
3) RU and MD are solid adds IMO. Both are respectable schools (certainly better than Indiana or Iowa) and bring in an expanding marketplace (huge B1G alumni in both cities). Also, it's join an expanded conference or die. Even ND is basically alligned with the Big East
4) People are only angry because the football team sucks. That's not Brandon's fault. Hoke needs another year or 2 before he should be fired.

means after Lebron left Cleveland the fans treated him like shit. Some of this is to be expected but 1) they were over the top, and 2) most anybody in Ohio would leave to make a ton of money in South Beach and play with 2 All Stars.

Mods? Huge problem with app.

After Tate won, no. ND is not any form of a bell weather. Game.

On the us team?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Not to sound like a cheesy business book,||
but a person doesn't have to be Ray Lewis to be a true leader. Introverted people by that definition, cannot be leaders, which is not ture. As long as Gardner is working his ass off an other players see this, he will be fine.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I don't know,||
when I was a young kid in the B-School, if the Dean ever happened to be around (dude never spoke to me), I would be a little nervouse. I mean boss' boss and all.

I think Michigan fans bring up the fact that we beat Tebow in the Cap1 Bowl, the same year we lost to ASU as an example of:
1) Beating Urban, even when he had Tebow
2) Lol @ SEC>B1G
Also, that Stanford game (and the fact that Lane Kiffen is an awful coach) is why Stanford > USC is the case today. And I think from a betting line perspective, that was a bigger upset.
