further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position

- Make all spots cap-free and have yearly limits. If a school magically was retaining 125 football players and about 80 female athletes over a 3 year period that could cause an investigation or something (are they cheating to pay less?)
- Make revenue generating sport scholarships not count against the title IX cap - a bit tougher sell, as this would decrease the amount of available female scholarships
- Make the school carry the maximum number of female scholarships at all times - for example if Football became capped at 25 players per year, the title IX number for football is now 125. That actually increases the number of available scholarships and provides more student-athletes with opportunities. The downside is it will cost Universities more, so they'd never go for it.

And it's nice too for those who will take 3-5 years. I'm sure there's something in place for NFL bound 3-year players to know "this is what I'll need to do after I retire to complete my degree", but I'd have to think that having a parental figure who's got lots of knowledge about M's system would be a nice add. It's not just a counselor saying "take 5 classes" it's a counselor & Gwen breaking it down.

With Harbaugh's heroics yesterday I don't know where to put my money. That Jeep did roll over.. but it stayed intact? Red Robin for the Harbaugh/Wheatley Bump?

Either the guy who has locked down a job is REALLY good, or everyone else kind of sucks.
Here's hoping it's the former.
I also think that with Harbaugh the "job" will mean that you're on the 1st team depth chart come fall camp - not anything about what will happen for game #1

So many random topics. Do we think TH Sr. sold chicken in Turkey?
That court.... wow. I couldn't even watch the highlights, I was trying to figure out what all the lines are. Although Wagner did shoot a long 2, which everyone hates analytically.
Are Texas's regular fans not annoyed yet? Do they need a few (more) bad years (with the new guy) before going up in arms?

But Dude, think about how bad truck nutz look on a Prius. How will anyone know you have testicles if you don't hang a pair off your vehicle?

But it's sure a lot more than I made as a 21 year old.
If we're doing math, it sure makes a lot more sense to take the guarantee and make as much as possible as a 20, 21, 22 year old (a few million in the NBA) then go back to college, get a degree, and earn whatever.
Staying guarantees your income at 20, 21, 22 = $0 (*Kentucky), for a chance at more later. Or Caris could break that foot again and never make a million.

I loved the piece. I'm not a good enough writer, but as to the point above about it not being "Bo's Car".... What if the analogy is rather the Ford Motor Company? Dominant early (Yost/Model T), really hit a sweet spot in the late 60's (Mustang)... then you've got the future stewards designing Mustangs of every model year. Some are hits, some are misses. Some guy tried a Turbo 4! Blasphemy! Recently they resurrected the Boss 302 - which was great unlike Hoke's throwback teams
The 2015s have it all, GT V8s, Turbo 4s, Hi Po- GT350s, just like how Harbaugh will beat you every way he can.
Car fanatics can be almost as bad as Michigan fans at times. I swear, the sighs of relief were palpable when Chrysler announced that the next Jeep would still have solid axles and removable doors. The lack of a fold down windshield angers the purists... but progress must be made. Designers of the Jeep and also the 911 have called themselves "stewards". The 911 is not thiers, rather they live with the history and the weight that the name carries every time they make an update.

Now that Norfleet and George Clinton have been avenged... hooray roster overanalysis!
I remain jealous of those who can't put on weight despite trying... and I think the real gleaning of information will be from spring to fall - once the fall numbers come out we'll see where Harbaugh really wants everyone.
|1 week 2 days ago||Agreed||
They're making progress. Without Caris and Walton we're missing only about 28ppg. These guys weren't supposed to be cornerstones on a B1G team, but play about 10 minutes per game. As it is, they (and Spike!) are playing more like 35, because Michigan doesn't have any other guys to play.
Let's see what Camp Sanderson can do... I think that we're seeing what will be a very good team next year.

Wait, they renamed Not-That-Assembly-Hall to "The State Farm Center"?

Petty and Winston were throwing to Michigan's WRs, so Harbaugh couldn't watch the WRs working out. If they were throwing to scrubs, or Funchess only, or anyone who's not on Michigan's current team, he could have observed/coached

Really well done. I mean, evicerating. The only positives I can think of is that Brandon donated a lot of money to the hospital. That's a nice thing to do, I guess.
Also... as evidence of what you call his one "Great Failure" I'm amazed that his quote about 'optimizing his personality to the best of his abilitites' (paraphrased) didn't make it. Dude sucked as a person and at his job. I mean, there were more failures that didn't even make this piece!! Former players having to buy tickets for their invited guests! People given seats for life having to fight for what Canham promised them!
Hackett Uber Alles.

But replace "Piece of shit human being" with "asshole". Dave Brandon is an asshole. Sending people home for the brand of jacket they're wearing???? Trying to get people fired because of their friends?
It's often said that if someone's not nice to a waiter they're not a nice person. You may not think that DB's a p-o-s, but he's definitely not a nice person.

But then Oden's body broke down and a picture of his penis was made public. Of course we at MGoBlog don't remember how GOOD he was! Basketball started in 2011...

I know Seth did what he could with the available data... but the small sample size means that so much of this is attributable to outside forces. Tate - for example, really skews things since he started 1 year, then sat behind Denard. in a better program, Tate never starts as a true EE Frosh.
It's interesting for what it is, but you'd really need more data over either more years or programs to try to reach any conclusions
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Options for "the slot"||
Net-front, as used above, is often used describing screeners in front of a goalie. Someone has "net-front presence". Olczyk uses this often.
"Between the Hash-marks" works, and as far as I know it's not a euphemism.
"High-slot" works for describing the area between the "top of the circles", could also use "bottom of the circles" or "between the dots".
"Area above the crease"? maybe?
