|28 weeks 1 day ago||Harbaugh's response||
Can anybody imagine Harbaugh dodging this question if asked about another coach?
Anybody teaching football would get an enthusiastic response from Jim. Hell, I'm getting enthused just THINKING about his enthusiasm.

+1 for the edit. I initially only raised the point because there are schools around town that are actually destitute, and struggling for stuff in a major way. So I appreciate the fix.
Also, thanks for linking to her project. Her project is totally worthy.

You're right about a bunch of stuff here.
However, I made no assumption about classroom income. I merely stated that the NEIGHBORHOOD (which is about 5 blocks from where both of my parents went to high school and only about a mile from where I grew up), is not poverty-ridden.
So, whatever assumptions I made about the school I am 100% willing to stand corrected.
However, if you think I an uninformed about the city's north side neighborhoods, you're hilariously wrong.

When my daughter was about 4, she referred to them as the 'ohio state butt-guys'. Around this house, the name has stuck.

I think these camps, especially the multi-school camps are great for kids. Even if they dont get recruited by one of the visiting schools, they get coaching and obviously a very cool experience.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||other possibilities||
He could really easily be communicating with recruits too. Or if that is not allowed, than 'friends' of recruits (I honestly don't know what the communications limitations are with active players).
If he knows he isn't going to be called on to get in the game, that is one of the more valuable things he could be doing.
Bringing a cell phone onto the sidelines is not going to be missed by staff, or the national TV cameras. While it is possible that he smuggled the phone in, I think it's more likely that it was allowed.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||Alvarez and B1G sports||
I did a super scientific run down of some random B1G sports and SEC sports, just to check Barry's math.
Total varisty sports:
Wisc - 23
Univeristy of Michigan - 27
So, Barry pays for more sports than the SEC. But he only has four more sports than UGA or Florida. He's in charge of the budget. If he chooses to pay asistants less, he must feel that the have less value than money spent on other things. However, it's not 'Wiscy is poor', it's simply Barry's choice.
I agree with your idea that modestly increasing revenue could fill that gap pretty easily. Hell, he could get SPONSORS for the positions:
Culver's Frozen Custard Presents UW Linebacker's Coach
The possibilities are endless.
(Yes, I Google'd for UW alums)

|1 year 15 weeks ago||Dangerous||
The only word for a boss, or other person in authority, to disregard medical advice is: dangerous. This is a person who will cause harm to others through their disregard of basic safety.
Sports medicine folks WANT players to play. Part of the training understands that the goal is to get players healthy enough to play, and to keep them in good health while playing.
Finishing a series, or a game, or a practice, with a developing injury can easily worsen it to the point that it jeapordizes that players season, career or long term health.
Also, Beckman is a dick.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Progress?||
I really dislike the guy - but have I noticed a shift in his attitude somewhat? He's still a scowling, blustering twit . . . but this year he seems less so.
Or am I imagining it since we didn't play them?
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Fly on the wall||
It would be interesting to hear his conversation with the B1G about rules clarification. I just think he would pound them for clarity. "why was THIS, but not THIS?" "WHY?!?"
He is so clearly and openly passionate about FOOTBALL that it's pretty infectious. Reading the presser got ME riled up about some of those calls all over again.
Who's got it better than us?

This game has the interesting opportunity to have a similar score to last year's game, but be much more intersting. I don't mind low scoring games, as long as they are the product of strong football.
Last year's game was much more about the failure of the offenses than the success of the defenses. This year seems to be setting up like a low scoring slugfest, but hopefully due to great play from the defense.
So, if the halftime score is MO - ON (yes, yes, I realize it will be N0-0M), it may still be a really watchable game.

That is a great idea.
I should be staying close to the convention center. I'd love to watch the game together.
