I was commenting more generally on your comments about the state of Big Ten officiating than whether specifically the replay guys had enough experience relative to the guys on the field. Specifically when you were saying one might be mostly a basketball referee.
My take (and this includes NFL) is that none of the football officials are getting the practice they need, and it's because so few football games get played. The NFL might be better served hiring full time guys and eating the cost of them working with youth players for five months out of the year. That's almost definitely not an option for the Big Ten, though.

I've only run an 8k at Detweiler but the splits for the 2015 championship appear to work out to three miles, which I was not aware of (he qualified as an individual, we weren't that good after his guaranteed one).

I also had junior and senior year confused, 14:23 junior year and 14:07 senior.

Evan Jager (American record holder for 3k Steeplechase) finished IHSA finals in Peoria (insanely flat course) in 14:22 his senior year of high school. That's a five star recruit time on a completely flat course.
The 2012 Olympic qualifying time on a track was 13:33, but obviously isn't the same 5k that your teammate ran.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Part of the problem is too||
Part of the problem is too few football games. I don't know how it works in other Big Ten sports, but as far as hockey guys those guys are full time referees and linesman. They're splitting time between leagues and might have another gig as needed, but they're getting most of their income and spending most of their time officiating hockey games (and related activities, teaching USA Hockey seminars, some coach power skaitng, whatever).
If they have one guy in the booth the Big Ten needs a minimum of 63 officials. There's no way 63 guys can get the practice they actually need at a high enough level with the small amount of games being played.

Hoke is a good recruiter. He sent a few guys to the NFL from SDSU and he'll out-recruit Hazell or whoever else is on the radar for a program like Iowa State or Purdue.
I think you're setting a higher than realistic bar for who can get a P5 job. USC won't be calling any time soon, but Edsall, Hazell, Flood and Beckman were all P5 head coaches heading into fall camp this season. Hoke would be an upgrade over any of them.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||He'd be a recruiting upgrade||
He'd be a recruiting upgrade for almost every lower tier P5 program, he graduates players and keeps them out of trouble.
Who is Iowa State or Purdue going to get that's significantally better than Hoke? Most of the coaches they'd be looking at have the same type of success he had at Ball State and SDSU without any of the recruiting or program experience he's had at Michigan.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I tend to believe Hackett||
I tend to believe Hackett when he said Hoke had mastered some aspects of the job. I realize that honest statements aren't in anybodys best interest when you're dealing with a high profile firing, but I completely buy Hoke being very good at certain parts of running a program.
I don't think he'll have to drop out of the P5 completely. He might decide that a job like Memphis is better than Illinois or whatever, but there will be jobs open at lower tier P5 programs that would happily take Hoke, IMO.

The standard isn't having to do with Michigan, it's pretty specifically defined in the FAQ. The Louisville scandal is, going by strict definition, on topic because they were an opponent. College sports in general are "gray area".
As far as what off topic posts get deleted and what doesn't, we usually make exceptions for things that are relevant to the board but are not on topic. One example was the youth football league post last week.

Alumni Field (and Yost, Crisler, Michigan Stadium) concessions are more expensive than concessions at Disney World.

M is on the outside looking in. MSU needs to lose to OSU and one of Indiana, Nebraska, Maryland and Penn State, and then M needs to run the table.
It's possible, but I can't imagine the numbers look good. Rose Bowl is still on the table with a 7-1 record though.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||But the only reason this play||
But the only reason this play could occur was in the context of the game at large, which was the play of the entire team. If Peppers got that first down and Rudock connected with Chesson it doesn't matter that M couldn't adjust strategically, because M would be up after the final play.
Again, tired cliche but they win as a team or lose as a team.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||It's just another "what if"||
It's just another "what if" in a game that will always be full of them in hindsight. Definitely not complaining about his play, but if Peppers could have gotten the first down earlier it's possible M has another four points on the board. If the refs hadn't ejected Bolden for that bullshit maybe he would have been in for the 75 yard fullback play and made a tackle early. If O'Neill had shanked the eighty yard punt maybe MSU is in victory formation with nine seconds left on the clock. Or maybe M is if Rudock/Chesson had connected on the second to last drive.
It's a tired cliche, but this is a team sport. O'Neill and Sypniewski didn't lose a game tonight, Michigan did.

It's not a bear, but I'm almost positive it's not a wolverine either. Its head is completely off, in size, shape and color. Its body looks far too large. A search for that image on Google nets results for sites like Pinterest and Wild Animal Fight Club through the first few pages.

Disclaimer: Yeah. I know. Apologies.
Are you familiar with any of the recent stories/court cases regarding the NSA and its collection of telephony metadata? I'm going to assume yes and try to use it as a relatable pop culture example.
Let's say you call your mom to say happy birthday. The data is the content of the call itself, you and her talking. Metadata is data about the call, or data about data. Metadata includes things like the sending and receiving phone numbers, time, duration, cell towers pinged, ect.
When someone makes a meta thread, we're not talking about whether Connor Cook is going to get sacked over and over, the site itself is the topic. Same for searching through metadata, the call isn't the issue, the data about the call is.
Let's say you made a thread every week where you correctly predicted the score of whatever games. That's just a normal (albeit exceptional) thread. If I were to make a thread about how you made threads correctly predicting the score each week, that thread is meta because it's referring back to something about the site itself.
I hope that clarifies the concept a little.

I've got nothing but praise for the way USA Hockey has decided to move forward. They've commissioned studies, got real data and developed a specific vision that I think is enviable in comparison to the way pro leagues have buried their heads in the sand for years.
Like you say, you can play real hockey without checking, and I think the sport is in a better position than ever in comparison to football.

USA Hockey has banned checking in Pee Wee. Hockey Canada is the same, but I believe their regional offices have more autonomy than USA Hockey gives its districts, so there might be a holdout or two.

Like most things in life, the OT policy is not binary, it's a spectrum. An off topic post about ISS Commander Scott Kelly is almost definitely coming down (check out his photos though) and so would a movie thread. This is about amateur sports at a time where talking about the future of football is in vogue (seriously, there probably is a Vogue article about the future of football).
The question at play for me is something like "how well does this align with the purpose of the board?". Awesome pictures of Australia from space or The Walk? Not so much. Youth football? That's a lot closer.

Warning, this post is extremely meta and many won't care. Fine, no need to read.
Normally every mod action on an OP ends with signed work somewhere. Whether that's here, or ending an OP with Mod edit: blah blah blah JGB. or posting a comment to the same effect. With the end of OT season we'll be removing (or maybe adding, but mostly removing) OT tags from posts that aren't off topic and frankly I don't think it's worth it to clutter posts or comments with a note saying why.
If anything else is changed there will be a note. If this happens to your post please don't take offense. If you have a question about it go ahead and ask here in the mod sticky.
