"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

Detroit has a pretty cool city flag:
It reflects the three nations (France, Great Britain and the U.S.) that have ruled the city.

It's a bison, actually, which is even better.
|21 hours 46 min ago||Actually, the very first||
Actually, the very first reply did.
|21 hours 48 min ago||I like Michigan and all but||
I like Michigan and all but to be honest, the whole "State coat of arms on a blue background" thing is overdone.
I'm a fan of California's. A big bear is tough to beat.

It depends how prudent you are with your money. For a lot of athletes the answer seems to be "never".
|1 day 20 hours ago||Alas, it won't be the same.||
Alas, it won't be the same. Patrick has been an assistant coach before. TV guys will need a new go-to factoid.
|1 day 21 hours ago||This is lame. It doesn't||
This is lame. It doesn't even make business sense to build a stadium that large. You just make it harder for it to sell out, and thus drive down demand.
Having the largest stadium is our thing. Other schools need to get over it.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Wow, MSU lost $3 million last||
Wow, MSU lost $3 million last year. We took in $53 million more than them (and $12 million more than OSU) and that was pre-Harbaugh.
|3 days 30 min ago||The wages they are paid||
The wages they are paid definitely would not support a family in this country, but are we sure they aren't livable wages in those particular countries? (Not a rhetorical question - I don't know the answer.)
|3 days 32 min ago||It is actually possible for||
It is actually possible for the Justice Department to investigate more than one crime at a time.

PSU-Pitt was a century-old rivalry. It's ridiculous that it was dropped in the first place.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Not really. Say you bet $100||
Not really. Say you bet $100 on each of these teams not to win, given the reverse odds (1/9 for Maryland, 1/10 for Duke, etc.). You'd make about $11 for Maryland losing, $10 for Duke losing, down to $1 for the teams in the Auburn/Cincy/Dayton bunch. But then you'd lose $100 for whichever team did win it all. I didn't do the math but you'd just make a modest profit.
|1 week 21 hours ago||Favored might be overdoing it||
Favored might be overdoing it (Maryland's going to be awfully good) - but we should finish in the top 3-4 in the league.

Nike because U-M's athletic supplier in 1994, the year before this ad came out.
|1 week 21 hours ago||The transfer fee goes to the||
The transfer fee goes to the club, but the player is almost always handsomely rewarded, too. The list doesn't show it, but there are a large number of soccer stars in the $10M-20M salary range.
|1 week 21 hours ago||Chris Webber should petition||
Chris Webber should petition the NCAA to have his records restored, based on the Cam Newton precedent. In all likelihood, it was Webber's father and other relatives who received the lion's share of the money from Ed Martin.
|1 week 21 hours ago||Rival fanbases used to chant||
Rival fanbases used to chant "J.R. Can't Reid" at him, so I'm guessing he was not the strongest in the classroom.
|1 week 1 day ago||The most recent data on||
No, we are experiencing natural increase as well. The birth rate, even at its lower rate, is still exceeding the death rate. It's true that in the long run (like 30-40 years from now), the death rate will eventually exceed the birth rate if the fertility rate doesn't increase. But that's not happening at the moment.

If teams "couldn't defend his deep ball," isn't that another way of saying that he's a good deep passer?
I think he's a much better passer than Miller, though perhaps not Barrett.

Jones isn't that fast. He is hard to bring down, though.
|1 week 1 day ago||Don't know about AC, but||
Don't know about AC, but Webber definitely was paid by Nike for this ad. He went pro in 1993, two years before this ad came out. (Nike also wasn't Michigan's uniform supplier at the time Webber played here.)

I just spent the last 10 minutes watching and re-watching this. Time well spent.
|1 week 1 day ago||Henson was a freshman when||
Henson was a freshman when Brady was a junior, so if he redshirted Brady's senior year, he'd have had three years left.
|1 week 1 day ago||And the ring should be made||
And the ring should be made of bright yellow aluminum siding for a touch of class.
|1 week 1 day ago||Navarre was actually a||
Navarre was actually a redshirt junior in 2002. But yes, he would have been less experienced, though he did have those four starts in 2000 under his belt.
|1 week 2 days ago||How could there possibly be||
How could there possibly be 44 coaches whose jobs are more secure than Harbaugh's at the moment? Literally the only way he could get fired in the next couple of years would be for a personal scandal. They should just cut the list off at #50 or so and consider everyone else "safe".
And yeah, Saban at #15 is just a tad ridiculous. He's only won three national titles since 2009.
|1 week 2 days ago||It's interesting, but seems||
It's interesting, but seems like it would be unfair to the worst teams, who need the most help. The teams that just barely miss the playoffs would get the top pick and the actual worst teams in the league would be frozen out.
|1 week 2 days ago||Whoa. The thought that the||
Whoa. The thought that the generation I grew up watching is now becoming grandparents - yikes.
|1 week 2 days ago||Don't insurance policies for||
Don't insurance policies for star athletes exist? I could've sworn there have been some athletes to take advantage of this.

Ellerbe was bad. Amaker was average. We improved under his watch, but not enough.
