I wouldn't count out Singletary or the Danimal. Hell, Dent probably could have sacked Gardner last year...

Really sorry to hear that Seth. Condolences to you and yours. Based on the pictures, comments of others, etc. it really seems that Zichrono L'Vrachah applies here, may his memory be a blessing.

But did they graduate? And is their BA on their resume? Then it does help with job prospects. You could study dance and not go to college, but you wouldn't benefit from it either. I did lots of "extra curriculars" but I wasn't paying tuition or going to use it for a job/grad school/something besides enjoyment.
|1 week 19 hours ago||I think you're correct||
And if you are correct, it shows why the NRLB union ruling for northwestern is critical. In the NFL, the NFLPA agrees to things like jersey sales. In the NCAA, the players have ZERO representation of any kind.
It's fitting that the NCAA, with their "we're great for the student athletes!" didn't call a single one to the witness stand.

And Circuits suck.
However cars are awesome*, have thought so forever, and now I design car parts. It doesn't hurt that Mechanical Engineering is typically a top-5-starting-salary-4-year-degree, but that's not why I chose it.
To BiSB's basic point, the reason to go to college is to get a degree, the reason to get a degree is to get a better paying job than you could get without one. Expedited - go to college to get more money.
Getting a degree that you want to (like if someone, Brian, for example, likes circuits) isn't in his argument.

Ace, I'm not sure that you've heard any chatter about JMo, but in his interviews JB said that if Jordan isn't drafted he's going to be getting calls right away. Do teams see Jordan as a summer league guy? Potential D-League guy? 15th man? What are the odds he gets drafted at #60?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Mitch to the Bulls||
I think that would be a great fit for Mitch and the team, although the Bulls doctors don't have the greatest track record (ask Noah's feet or Deng's spine). He'd be a perfect 3rd big there, Thibs would love the effort and he could fit with either Noah or Gibson moving forward - they're both shot blockers and can guard either the 4 or the 5, and Noah passes about as well as any big man. Thibs has used mostly a 3 big man rotation and if they don't amnesty Boozer I'd be shocked. There are minutes to be had and a city that would appreciate the effort of Big Puppy.
As a Bulls fan, yes please.

Plus practice squads and a CFL flameout. That was a damn good offensive class.

Doesn't Delany really want to offer full cost of attendance, etc? Wouldn't the current NCAA system getting a bit blown up help him?
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Agree/Disagree/Homer Bias||
Agree that LeBron would be dumb to move to the Western Conference. The East will have much easier paths to the finals for the forseeable future
Disagree that the Bulls won't be a challenge depending on D Rose. Even without Rose the Bulls have been much better than expected, and if Melo or K Love join... well Rose (100-80% of former Rose), Butler, Melo, Gibson, Noah is a pretty beastly starting 5.
Full disclosure: I am a Bulls fan and relatively irrational about my fandoms. In my mind Michigan will go 14-0 this year, the Cubs are contenders in 2015, the Blackhawks should be favored to win the cup (probably accurate), and Da Bears won't surrender a point over the first 7 weeks of the NFL season.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||To be a wet blanket on Cleveland||
The burning of jerseys was one thing, but Dan Gilbert must have spent the last 4 years groveling in the mud Joliet Jake style if he expects Lebron to ever play for him again. Lest we forget the pseudo-slave-owner language that Gilbert used when scorned by Lebron 4 years ago, I can't imagine Lebron wants to go back to that. Plus, they just hired a previously unheard of (if very successful) Euro-League coach who Lebron was reportedly not impressed with.

I find myself barely watching ESPN except for live sports programming anyway, this just enforces that behavior to an extreme.

He was a pre-med, not a pre-law. I've heard there's a huge difference.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Dear students: GO TO YOST||
My guess is this is due to:
1. increased football prices - makes it harder to do both
2. recent basketball success - which sport would you choose for your "secondary" tickets?
This is a good thing. Go to Yost. I had season tickets to football and hockey all 4 years (and went to 1 basketball game. 2005-2009 was a bit different than today) Take advantage and go to Yost.

I agree with you in that, as the article states, the B1G is projecting about $45M PER SCHOOL from the media rights deals in 2017/2018. The B1G is already #1 in that and it's in the $25M range today. I also think that Maryland might be bettter than most think at football, and should be good at hoops. Rutgers less so, although Draftageddon has me worried about what their DL does to our OL.
I think that what I dislike the most about the expansion is how little we'll now play the rest of the B1G. Sure, it's great to get more money, but we're barely playing wisconsin or iowa or minnesota in football anymore! At least the B1G went to 9 games, but still - unless they add games or just schedule OOC games with B1G teams, we're only going to see games for the brown jug about 2-3 times per decade.

Re: 1 - while I read Brian's quote as directed at the Michigan AD, it could also be directed at the B1G in general. They're expanding the conference despite the fans' disapproval
2 - also Graceland. But with 2 monitors at work I didn't actually watch any of it.

1 - it looks like Brian's comment was not copied correctly

|3 weeks 2 days ago||4-3 Over Primer||
Nice write up Seth. I said it in the other thread as well, but you want to look to the Chicago Bears to see what a 4-3 Over looks like.
This highlight video has a lot of replays/highlights, but it also shows a lot of full plays of Urlacher doing exactly what MLBs should do. There's film of him shooting the gap on run plays, playing the deep middle, etc. Linebacker play will depend a lot on the DL. If the LBs can flow freely, good things happen. If the LBs always have OLs in their face, bad news.

|3 weeks 6 days ago||Nik to the Bulls||
Nik is a perfect fit for what the Bulls need. They've been looking for a 2 who can play with D Rose since drafting him, they have an above-average wing defender in Jimmy Butler, so Nik can guard the "worse" opposing wing and they desperately need more offense - Nik's spacing, shooting ability, as well as skills running the P&R would be very welcome in Chicago. His size makes me think that Thibs can get enough out of Nik defensively.
I guess what I'm saying as a Bulls fan is "Yes Please".
|3 weeks 6 days ago||How does the NRLB ruling tie into this?||
Great write up BiSB. If you could add to it, how does the NRLB ruling play into this? Aren't college moneymaking student-athletes pseudo employees now? At least at Northwestern? Pending appeal? Does that translate into any of this at all?
I know the NCAA's semantics don't matter at all to this judge, but if the players are employees then what's stopping this suit from bringing up the artificial cap on employee pay by the cartel?
