Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.

I had a ton of fun. Never expected the Bo - Woody battles to be so historic. You could income average back then - so I averaged all my post-school income over the four years at Michigan. All the laws were better. I still have that SI magazine - along with all the Daily football articles from that season.

the articles written by BisB. A little less snarky (did I use that word right?) and he could write for any sports publication out there.

If you think about it, that's actually quite funny.

The key to getting the most out of this site is to absolutely never read the comments.

Generally, I am very content and comfortable when I find that I understand what the "blogosphere" is saying and I disagree with it.
Now I find I may agree. Something is terribly wrong - either with me or with the world.

Someday this team will play well on the road.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||Borges and Heiko||
I watch the videos and use Heiko’s transcripts to read the questions which I usually can’t hear.
It has been interesting to watch the way these coaches have adapted to these press conferences. Brady, Mattison, and especially Borges were originally very guarded in these situations. Brady and Mattison still go out of their way to answer in generalities. However, Borges now seems relaxed and sometimes really lets loose and talks football. This change seems to me to have corresponded with him warming up to Heiko.
I am sure that Borges couldn’t care less about what MGOBlog thinks, but I do think it’s possible that his relationship with Heiko may have changed his view of these press conferences.

|24 weeks 19 hours ago||I think that was||
the building with the shooting range. At least there was one back in the late 70's. There were NRA qualifications there and I vividly remember my girlfriend, who had never shot before, making Sharpshooter before I did.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||I found the same thing.||
After two very long phone calles to DirecTV I ended up with the same information you got. $140 for the season and see it on channel 793. Or, $25 to see it as a PPV.
Hopefully, ESPN3 will work since I have a computer on the TV. The ESPN3 website says I should get it. However, I never trust that. Seems a sporting event can be played in Mongolia and they find a reason to block me.

The problems are with the observers.

Regardless of what happened in the Akron game this should be a blowout. If not, then the expectations for this season change drastically.

The subsequent comments caused me to go back and read the (surprisingly meaningful) Sun Tzu quote.
I’m becoming a believer in this author.

Methinks a large bet on Massachusetts is in order.

I find the $2.5 million allocation for the golf facility interesting too.
I’ll probably get negged for telling this TRUE story (I really don’t understand this “flamebait” stuff. No one loves Michigan more than I do and I am never trying to provoke anything negative.) However, don’t underestimate the likelihood that the regents and the athletic administrators play at those facilities and that may have had an influence in those decisions. (Please note my use of the word “may.”)
As a very young Victors Club member in the early 80s I was at one of the meetings and Freider said he wanted to invite some recruits to the Notre Dame football game. However, he was having a hard time getting tickets. So the next day, wanting to help, I called the man in charge of the Victors Club at that time (not going to say his name), and told him I would donate two of my tickets for that purpose. He said that was fine.
Well, at the game I noticed a couple of older guys sitting in the seats. I asked them where they got the tickets. One said “my friend [the man I had called to arrange to donate the seats to] got them for me.” After some querying I find he ran the golf course.
So, I am not sure my donation helped the athletic department recruit, or got someone a better tee time. It was no big deal because I would have just given those seats to friends or customers anyway. The moral is that, if you are going to donate, make it money and send it through the proper channels. Another moral is that some of the administrators use the golf facilities and that appears to be import to them.

Once, as a junior, I was doing my laundry in a laundromat on Packard Street and in walks Newt Loken with a couple of gymnastics team members. They have the trampoline beds and are going to wash them. It was pretty late at night and Newt was still a bundle of energy. Always upbeat and smiling. Talking a lot. For some reason I vividly remember that.
At all of the homecoming games he led the all-male cheerleading squad. He had this goofy cheer where he would pull the cork off a big bottle and everyone would cheer. As soon as he put the cork in - silence. Somehow that was really funny.
He was part of THOSE days. Bo. Don Canham as AD. Robben Fleming as President. Even Rob Lytle; who was in one of my classes. All have passed away.
It was sure fun hating old Woody.
Those days were the awesome old days.
|2 years 36 weeks ago||I’m confused too.||
At Wayne State Jackson probably plays, and if he's at Ohio State he doesn’t play. At Wayne State he gets a Wayne State degree and at Ohio State he gets an Ohio State degree.
Seems to me he’s trading up on both counts.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||The root of the oversigning evil...||
The root of the oversigning evil is the fact that the scholarships are one year deals.
You can hash out the details, but once you make the scholarships four (or better yet five) year agreements you solve the basic issue.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||I agree completely||
They ARE more fun to watch.
Rule changes like these basterdize the game I know and love so much. They make the game feel contrived and artificial.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Hoke has told the story many||
Hoke has told the story many times that, when he was playing, he thought he would drink every beer in town. He credits his coaches with changing this and having a great positive impact on his life.
Perhaps he will cut Stonum loose someday. But I think his first priority will be to try to impact the man’s behavior.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||What's going to happen is...||
What's going to happen is that we are all going to be taught a great lesson in recruiting by someone who is clearly a master: Coach Hoke.
We will see how he handles the numbers. I would never venture to second guess his tactics, and I will be very interested in seeing how all this plays out by signing day.

Strange timing for Mommy to step up to the plate and buy a car. If she could buy this then why didn't she buy the car long ago?
Like others have stated above, this is money from an agent. Pryor no longer cares about his eligibility
|2 years 41 weeks ago||The Drew Sharp article makes||
The Drew Sharp article makes the assertion that OSU is self-reporting while not giving any examples. The fact is; OSU is actively spinning the known facts while reporting as little as possible. Here’s two examples of the school down south’s NOT reporting:
The primary violation is the coach lying on the compliance form. People forget that OSU’s internal “investigation” (whose purpose was to appeal the 5 game suspension of the tat-5) that discovered the old emails Tressel received and sent, was only reported AFTER the story was broken by Yahoo Sports. They had this, Yahoo reported it, THEN they “self-reported” it.
Currently they say they are going to look into the car issue AFTER the state’s motor vehicle department provides its findings. Why? They can investigate this just fine. They have the 50 transactions. Interview the players. The only reason to wait is that they want to tailor their findings to match the provable facts that come out.
