the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

Pedantry alert: a fiancé is a man engaged to be married. A fiancée is a woman engaged to be married.
|1 day 16 hours ago||That would be more "Bill||
That would be more "Bill Martin'd".
Brandon is more of the "spend money to make money" school of thought. Martin was more . . . cautious at spending the bucks.
|2 days 9 hours ago||I can't believe they did that||
I can't believe they did that to the MSU series. That is awful. All of the pre-2011 protected series should have remained fixed and then they should have gone from there. I'm really disappointed that they did this. Now our even-numbered year schedules are going to suck even worse than they currently do.
Is this just a preliminary schedule? Is there any way Michigan can complain and get this fixed?
|3 days 11 hours ago||Two problems with Nashville||
Two problems with Nashville as a December destination: no beaches and not particularly warm weather. If I'm going somewhere that time of year, I want those two.
|3 days 11 hours ago||That was classic. I used to||
That was classic. I used to own that poster.
|4 days 6 hours ago||There are no protected rivals||
There are no protected rivals in Big Ten basketball. We've had years where we only played MSU once as well.
|4 days 6 hours ago||Well, that's not great but||
Well, that's not great but it's not necessarily a horrible draw. Northwestern and PSU might be decent next year, while Illinois is kind of a wild card - who knows what to expect. The single-play at OSU is the main disadvantage.
|4 days 9 hours ago||That would be an interesting||
That would be an interesting conversation to have in art class.
"Hey Derrick, can I see you for a minute at my desk?"
(He walks over, uncertain of the reason. Other students assume he's busted.)
"Ms _______, I promise, my papier-maché mask is almost done!"
"So . . . what jersey number are you going to wear next year?"
|4 days 10 hours ago||Walk-ons will share numbers||
Walk-ons will share numbers with scholarship guys. Only the rare few who gain regular playing time (like Kovacs) get the number for themselves.

Amazing how RCMB posters know more about our coaches' recruiting pitches than we do.
|5 days 10 hours ago||That's not a surprise; his||
That's not a surprise; his father endorsed Nike for years.
|5 days 10 hours ago||I'm kind of surprised he||
I'm kind of surprised he still gets severance pay given the horrific scandal that occurred under his watch.
|5 days 10 hours ago||It's hard to argue otherwise||
It's hard to argue otherwise when they're still playing two Big Ten teams per year. Playing Purdue and MSU but not Michigan is pretty lame.
|5 days 10 hours ago||I don't know if football||
I don't know if football programs do (probably not many BCS-conference programs), but most athletic departments as a whole are in the red.
|5 days 10 hours ago||Why are the dollar amounts so||
Why are the dollar amounts so random? Why doesn't anyone make a round number, like say $800,000?
|1 week 7 hours ago||I've never understood how||
I've never understood how someone could make generalizations about the physical appearance of students at a school of 40,000. In my experience at Michigan, there were girls that fit into every possible category ("hot sorority girl" included).
The "They have ugly girls" thing is a typically juvenile, little-brother insult. Why people here internalize it, I don't understand.
|1 week 7 hours ago||I certainly would prefer for||
I certainly would prefer for them to wrap up their recruitment sooner rather than later. Recruiting is more stressful when it's a winter's tale.
|1 week 12 hours ago||I like that the prediction is||
I like that the prediction is "100%".
Folks, I think we have broken the space-time continuum.
|1 week 12 hours ago||Impressive. What is his time||
Impressive. What is his time in the 100?
|1 week 1 day ago||That is one of the greatest||
That is one of the greatest headlines of all time.
|1 week 1 day ago||That Nike deal we signed in||
Not really. That was when everyone was signing university-wide deals with apparel companies. That first Nike deal actually wasn't that lucrative - it paid us about $1 million a year. OSU actually signed a more lucrative deal with Nike not long after.
|1 week 2 days ago||The refs got it right on||
The refs got it right on replay - not a catch.
|1 week 2 days ago||I've heard that the halo was||
I've heard that the halo was actually Lee Bollinger's idea.
|1 week 3 days ago||Exactly. Nowadays, being an||
Exactly. Nowadays, being an AD is as much about expanding revenue streams as it is hiring coaches. Brandon is doing the job for which he was hired. His successor will pick up where he left off.
|1 week 3 days ago||Ligue 1 is actually going to||
Ligue 1 is actually going to have its sixth different champion in six years. Granted, this period of parity may be coming to an end, but the league has been very unpredictable in recent years. Absolutely no one saw Montpellier winning it last year.
|1 week 3 days ago||Given that Taylor, Traylor||
Given that Taylor, Traylor and Bullock (and Rose) came clean in court, what was Webber going to be able to accomplish by lying? He couldn't protect the school from getting nailed by the NCAA. All he could protect was his own personal legacy. We still would have had to vacate the 1995-99 seasons regardless.
I think the greater blame should lie with Webber's father, though. Mayce Webber apparently also had a relationship with Martin, and he certainly was old enough to know what was up.
|1 week 4 days ago||Marijuana affects your||
Marijuana affects your memory. Research has repeatedly demonstrated this. Given that it does this, If I'm a coach I don't want my players using it when they need to be going to college, passing their classes with relatively little study time, and memorizing a thick playbook.
|1 week 4 days ago||And while he did play in the||
And while he did play in the 2011 OSU game, it wasn't his best work (see the crazy-face gif).
|1 week 4 days ago||And, can you count on a guy||
And, can you count on a guy to memorize his playbook (we're talking 100+ plays) and be attentive to his studies if he's sparking a J on a regular basis?
|1 week 4 days ago||Is there a way for the||
Is there a way for the Dolphins to assume Kovacs's debt? Or would that be seen as circumventing the cap?
