Schools not paying for things they used to might make football more expensive than in the past, but hockey is growing big time and equipment is orders of magnitude more expensive than football (not to mention cost of ice time compared to cost of field time).

This was the exact problem with the Legends Jersey execution. Players shouldn't be continually asked to "earn" a number (and yes I realize Carr did this with Braylon).
Not every single guy that wears the 1 jersey needs to win a Biletnikoff for it to keep its luster. Butterfield not lighting the world on fire didn't diminish the value Braylon saw in it.

Jedd Fisch never played and I learned that tonight (h/t to Mr. Miggle). Almost all of the talk, IIRC, was how Harbaugh had managed to land a guy who was an NFL OC immediately prior to taking the WR job.

That's exactly my point. It's not an analogy, it's a claim that if you can coach, nobody cares one iota what your 40 time was twenty years ago or how many tackles you had at Wisconsin- La Crosse.

I didn't realize Leach hadn't played either, so there's a non-asshole example below.
At the end of the day I don't think Nick Saban is relying on his experience at Kent State, or Meyer is relying on football knowledge learned being a backup at Cincinnati or Belichick at DIII Wesleyan. Being a coach isn't the same thing as being a player, to state the obvious.

It's not exactly the same thing, but Patrick Murphey has a softball national title despite never playing. The guy is an asshole, but Charlie Weis never played in college and got a shot at the big leagues.
Taking a look at the article, she played women's football professionally for 10+ years. I don't know enough about this particular woman, but I can't see any reason women in general can't coach at a P5/NFL level.

Yale winning a title is probably a historical outlier, but moving to an era where 56% of all graduating seniors played in at least one tournament could suggest more structural change than a few lucky bounces can account for. I don't know what that number has been in the past, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's a significant increase from the eighties and ninties.

Because the CWS predates the WCWS and they liked the college world series name, I'm guessing.
You have to look kind of closely, but here are NCAA trophies showing, MBB, WBB, softball and baseball, with gender on the basketball trophies but absent for bat sports.
You'll see the same thing on the NCAA website or any press release out of MGoBlue (or wherever else). On MGoBlue the title of the team's page shows this as well.

This seems as on topic as most other stories in July.

Kanye's MO is to sample heavily when he produces. I think he's got a very good ear for that kind of thing and it usually ends up sounding great, but didn't want to just leave it at "that's Kanye" because it is a little more complicated, especially without his vocals.

The point of the scale map is to show how much of the solar system is space and give some kind of sense how far it is from one body to another, not how big two objects are in comparison.
There's an interesting fact in there: If you rendered the scale to Earth at one pixel and printed the map on a 330PPI printer, the pages would stretch 450ft and Earth wouldn't be visible. The vast expanses of nothing are the real story.

I'm not arguing that Morris has been good (or will ever be good for that matter). There was a lot of praise for the BWW bowl that I didn't join in, and Minnesota was a disaster all around.

I'm sure there are diaries and stories from this site that illustrate the same general point, but turnover margin and wins are pretty strongly correlated.
Not all of that has to do with turnovers in a vacuum (having Charles Woodson means you get interceptions + you've got Charles freaking Woodson on every non-interception play) but I'd bet in many or even most years there would be two of the top four teams with a top ten turnover margin.

Someone wrote a great op ed about Apple's response to Taylor Swift's open letter that touched on a lot of these issues too, but I can't find it anywhere. The crux is that you don't become one of the world's richest corporations by bleeding cash and she gave them the out they were looking for to save face among Apple fans.

Is there anyone else that's not going to change their habits at all and keep buying the American Apparel stuff from Moe's/MGoStore?
I keep seeing all these apparel quality arguments from fans and I'm starting to think I'm taking crazy pills; Adidas didn't make the highest quality M gear and neither will Nike.

I'm sure if he wanted the job it'd be his, but every bit of smoke says he doesn't. Remember, this gig has already taken him out of retirement. I'll be happy for him when he picks a long term replacement and rides off into the sunset as a badass/hero.

I didn't think the Big Chill was too bad (and I was up high in a corner) but the sightlines at Progressive Field against OSU were awful from the heart of the Michigan section. The game would have been much easier to follow on TV.
Full disclosure: the weather probably has something to do with remembering both.

Anyone with even passing interest in money (meta interest, not just acquiring it) should take a look at the story of the Island of Yap and their use of enormous stones as currency. Keynes and others have written about it, but Milton Friedman's first chapter in Money Mischief quotes one of the first western sources, should take <5mins to read and isn't what most people consider political. Very interesting stuff, at least for an econ geek.
As for other sites I visit, the annotation concept behind Genius.com is incredible. It has its flaws and needs better diversity among the best mods, but especially for hip hop there's some amazing material there, and there are big time artists with verified accounts.
They've diversified their scope (originally rapgenius.com) to include all types of music, court opinions and even Hillary Clinton will be doing some type of partnership with her speeches this campaign. Not an endorsement or diss, by the way, just a big name from outside the music industry.

The two teams with the best records will play a one-off game for the title. The conference determined a champion with win-loss for over a century, this just adds a game.

If Michigan and OSU are the top two teams in the fourteen team conference, rematch ratings shouldn't be an issue and might actually increase.
I get the resistance about having another shot at beating the winner of The Game, but that's a paradigm shift that isn't going to go away and I think on the whole the positives outweigh the negatives.

Only Howe, Yzerman, Delvecchio, Lidstrom, Holmstrom and Draper have played more games as a Red Wing.
Assuming I can math, that means Lindsay, Abel and Sawchuck have their numbers up despite not being a Wing as long as Fedorov.

Not without some ridiculous run that involves Datsyuk not retiring to Russia after 2017. Love those guys, but Fedorov is the only recent player with an argument, IMO.

It's not retired, it's out of circulation. If it was up to me I'd put a white 16 banner up, but I can see where people are coming from with just about any other plan; it's a unique situation with a lot of emotions on all sides.

In any case, Yzerman has done more than enough to prove he should be the man in Detroit when Holland retires. His fellow GM's spoke loudly at the awards last week, like you said, he got his coach, he's navigated their cap issues well and I'd put money on him having a cup before he leaves unless something weird happens with Holland.
I'm not going to say he didn't have some luck (flipside is he had earned a shot with a non-awful franchise) but he's pretty much nailed every big decision he's needed to make and has two consecutive gold medals managing the Canadian team on his resume as well.
Yzerman is a legitimately talented GM.

Sorry, I wasn't very clear. I was trying to get across that I think he has a better case than anyone he played with (except Yzerman and Lidstrom) and anyone currently playing. Someone who would be retiring soon or did recently.

I've been waiting for this today. Lidstrom is an obvious lock, but I'm honestly hoping Fedorov gets in as well. I know a lot of people feel differently, but it's time to welcome him back and remember how good he was as a Red Wing.

I agree with your general point here, but even making it a dichotomy I think Hatch is almost certainly a unique circumstance that shouldn't have any bearing on any other case or necessarily reflect Beilein's position on medicals.
I'm with you that there's not a lot of nuance deciding whether a coach can ethically cut a player, but the Hatch situation is an extreme exception and actually nuanced.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I don't know what interest||
I don't know what interest the BTHC would have in adding a Pac school with no history or tradition. Last year aside, one of the biggest assets the conference has is four of six schools with more or less elite tradition and relatively large fanbases.
ASU isn't going to bring TV viewers in any real number, they're 1,600 miles away from the westernmost current member, and they're probably going to suck for a while. We already have crabcakes in the conference, we don't need any cactus.
