This was the only home game I missed during my college career. The game played was barely football. I got dressed for the game, stepped out of my apartment onto State, instantly froze with rain and thought better of it.

I wish that I was half as graceful or eloquent when I was his age.

If he REALLY thought it was harmful, and such a bad idea, and a real waste . . . he would not think it was a comepetitive disadvantage without them.
Not every 3-4-5 star kigh school kid in Florida will play for Miami, FSU or Florida. Many of these kids can't afford to go around the country on their own dime. Meeting coaches from across the country face-to-face is a big deal and really helpful for them to make their decisions about where to take their official visits. I don't see how this is bad for football, the NCAA or (especially) the kids getting recruited.
I CAN see how it hurts recruiting in ACC and SEC. This is entirely about Saban - and the rest of the South and SouthEast - protecting his turf (that is partly his job). I wonder how strongly the B1G feels about this, and how strongly the other power 5 feel about it.
Will the oposition to this program outweigh the support?

The list of people negatively impacted by these camps is: Saban.
On the list of legitimate problems the NCAA has, there should be no surprise that THIS issue hits the top of the list. Because the NCAA is entirely peopled with idiots.

There were pretty serious methodology issues with the rugby study that make extrapolating that data problematic. But, the population of rugby players is failry limited and obviously harder to do a broader study.
I thought this table (from the Gessel study) was the most useful. It shows data for 9 NCAA sports. Across those sports they estimate 135,901 concussions. That is a lot.

Enormous grins as Mitch tries to teach Coach how to unicycle. Love for the school and enormous enthusiasm. It's kind of infectious. I'm grinning just looking at the pic.

I don't think Gumby's is on the list, but dollar for dollar. . . no, that was still really crappy pizza.

1993 South Quad basement computer lab. It wasn't until the following school year that they finished the upstairs lab.

Across all sports, across all levels of competition there are 300,000 sports related concussions per year.

Regarding Hatch I have a NCAA process question. The question came up because they seem to do everything wrong.

This was my guess on his diagnosis too.

Technically, the surgery can be done simultaneously. The problem, mentioned a bit earlier, is the rehab. With one leg, he's on crutches until he can fully bear weight on the surgical leg. Once he can do that, the other legs gets done.

Awesome to get a major in-state recruit. Also, this adds momentum to kids signing.

Hate Duke more than Wiscy, but meh. They are far from loathsome. Both teams are playing with huge energy tonight.

Follow the money, right?
World of Warcraft, huge, famous massively multiplayer online role-playing game, costs about $15 a month for a subscription. There are about 10 Million people playing this month (and just about every month for the past 10 years).
[aside for folks who already know this, I am simplifying the account stuff to make a point, I know subs fluctuate, and I know international subscription costs vary, so relax]
So, this one game brings in about $150 Million. A month. Every month. For a decade.
Minecraft was sold to Microsoft for $2.5 BILLION.
Video gaming is a multi-BILLION dollar industry. There are MILLIONS of gamers. The industry is simply extending into live competition. This is a very small investment of the overall industry. It makes the fans more excited, it gets them to play more, it fosters a community of people devoted to the games.
I am astonished that people continue to be unaware that the market for games and gamers is gigantic and loaded with cash.

Do we know anything about format of the game yet?
We heard that there would basically be no kicking at the game, but I wasnt sure if that included kickoffs, or just FGs and punting.
There are tons of ways to carve up the game (and keep it a game) without special teams. But I have not heard what the plans would be.

The Bears are already projecting Shea McClellin into that spot.
I would love me some JMFR too, but I can't imagine with the imperfect fits the Bears already have in shifting to the 3-4 that they would look for another imperfect fit. Please consider, I have no idea how well Ryan plays in the nickle (the Bears seem to LIVE in the nickle), so there might be a role there. However, the Bears LB corps is pretty out of sorts right now, so anything would probably be a good addition.
