|4 days 19 hours ago||The solution||
Four conferences, 20 teams in each.
Each conference consists of four divisions, 5 teams each.
Scheduling is handled like the NFL does. Each season you pit two divisions against each other to get as close to schedule balance as possible. 9 conference games. 2 out of conference games. Each team plays 11 games total.
Each conference has a 4 team playoff (the 4 division winners) on Thanksgiving weekend + the weekend after.
The four conference winners move on to the already established 4 team CFB Championship playoff.
Non playoff bowls remain in tact.
Boom, you have a psuedo 16 team playoff with "decent" balance.
If there's some team who sets the world on fire, and isn't part of the 4 "power" conferences, so sorry.

Either planning on Irvin going pro, or that there will likely be one of the current Sophomores who decide to bounce?
|6 days 20 hours ago||Homecoming||
Always thought this should be a Homecoming thing. Honor the players of the past by having their numbers out on the field again for one home game per season.
Gives the players a chance to still have their own identity and make a name for themselves, possibly becoming a legend jersey down the road.

Some people are just not good at assessing risk, or perhaps have that "invincible" feeling. It's like the millionaires who get drunk and drive home when they could easily afford a driver for the evening.
If JPP wanted to see things go boom so badly, he could have easily hired some professionals to do it. Instead he did this, and is going to lose Millions in the process. Rightly so.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Negotiate||
Very rarely in life are you paid what you're worth. You're paid what you can negotiate.
We've proven to Nike that we will go get that money if one of their competitors dangles it in our face. If they wanted Michigan back in the fold so badly, they were going to have to make the deal sweet enough to pull it off.
I'm sure there are piles of market research that back up the deal too. Michigan brings a whole bunch of customers to the table that places like FSU simply don't. It will be interesting to see what OSU does when their contract comes up.
EDIT: Oh, and it probably helps that we have an Uber high profile football coach who will now be donning the swoosh everywhere he goes.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Seriously||
The latest prime examples of how some rich people should stay out of sports franchise ownership.
That hubris that leads them to believe that they can brute force their way to the top is fascinating to watch in action though.
I guess it makes sense. What they can offer players is regulated. So Vivek is going to throw bags of money at coaches and front office guys to try and get it done. Good luck, but your only ways to win in todays NBA is to draft a future hall of famer or two, or find a way to lure free agents. The latter is pretty impossible to do in Sacremento.

SEC Coaches when asked about Satelitte camps:

Terminator 4, 8pm on a Friday night showing. A couple shows up with two under 10 year old children and sit on the end of the aisle we're sitting in. We basically served as the other border of the area containing their playing children for 2 hours. I should have charged them for babysitting.

I understood that reference. Bravo sir or madam, Bravo.

How about Judge Judy wearing a Michigan hat?
|14 weeks 4 days ago||I take it||
I take it to mean the competition level of fellow students, and it is correct.
Having spent one year at Dearborn, three years at Ann Arbor, the level of difficulty in course work, and competition level amoung students is vastly different between the two campuses.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Um||
I, uh, don't think you're using that one correctly.

I just thought of what Philly fans will do to Tebow when things go poorly.

I blasted through the 8 episodes of Silicon Valley over the last couple days. Show has potential... so long as you enjoy vulgar humor.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Twilight Zone||
Twilight Zone: One of Purdue/IU/Illinois makes a coaching change this off season. Brady catches on at one of those schools. Puts together a staff to install a TCU/Oregon fusion offense. Sets the B1G West on fire.
|19 weeks 1 hour ago||They should||
Legends Jerseys should only be brought out for Homecomming. Serves two purposes: 1) honoring the players of the past. 2) Allows current players to still make a name for themselves with "their" number.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||Why||
Why? So they can lockout/strike again and send their sport futher into Bolivia?

Me when I see McGary fake that defender out of his shorts, and then realize he should still be on Michigan's team this season:

Love the giant block M on the shorts. Hate the Two Tone. Death to Uniformz.

They're attempting to Crowdfund!!!
I'm tempted to donate just so I can see how terrible that documentary would be.

Also, our coach eats Pizza House, not that Domino's garbage that Urban eats.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Do Not||
Do not want. Mario + Rod is a very good 2-man team. Mixing it up is... meh.

She was blatantly lip sync'ing the majority of that. Her voice was noticably different between the singing parts and the live mic parts where she yelled out to the crowd. Also there were parts where there was no movement whatsoever in her throat and upper chest while she was "singing," no variations whatsoever when she was singing and moving around.
This came up a couple years ago with Red Hot Chili Peppers not even having their instrumetns plugged in. They pre-record most of the live music at these events.

Thanks, now I can't get the image of Harbaugh wearing Kakhi's with the ass cut out, out of my head.

But if it never doesn't happen, has it really ever happened? If it never doesn't not happen, and we fail to not ever speak of it, well, what then?
