Michigan hockey nets $2-3mm per year from every source I've seen (Title IX reporting should back this up if you want to go looking). For M at least, football is responsible for the lions share, I believe upwards of $80mm in a $150mm budget is directly football related. Basketball and TV payouts make up most of the rest and hockey puts a little bit back in the pot.
I'm pretty confident on everything above from memory, but there have also been rumors out there of a two million dollar payout from BTN to the hockey schools that haven't been substantiated, at least from what I remember.

Just in case BrewMom wants another instruction format or wants to do something else, I put the most common "I don't know how to put this into a post" answers in a sticky a few years back.

I'm not a baseball fan but I have an extremely tough time believing Romero has the power to scare a major league pitcher.

I thought the superstition was the other way around in boxing.

Kid Rock's ad budget > Anheuser Busch > ATT/Chevrolet > McDonalds (and equals Samsung's)?

It also gives a conference a shot at getting a team into the NCAA tournament that wouldn't make it otherwise, which is a big bonus even in non-revenue sports.

I think I'm missing something in your two posts here. Your last post encouraged someone like the OP to link to a site that passed off info as their own and then you point that out as the problem in your second paragraph here.
The two most important parts of Brian's policy (and the poster saying his policy is not having any moderation is dead wrong, premium info gets the mod edit treatment probably ten times more than an average post) are a) linking to the site and b) leaving value in the original site's reporting.
I don't subscribe to any of the pay sites so I can't comment on how much more info there is in the linked article, but from what I can see the OP followed MGoBlog's policy to the letter.

On a completely unrelated but maybe kind of funny note, both of those guys were Greek.

Piecing together info from their website, the property appears to include five golf courses, twenty-three ski runs, 238 rooms, two restaurants, a bar, a spa and wedding/meeting space. Their media page claims they spent $2.5m on replacing two thirds of their golf cart fleet and buying new golf course maintenance equipment in 2014.
I'm not a hospitality management guru or anything but it seems like we could easily be talking an extra two zeros on the 430,000 figure (and maybe significantly more than that, as well).

In his last seven deals he made twenty-five million stockholders a pretax profit of twelve billion dollars.
Meanwhile, Bernie Madoff is cleaning phones and computers for forty bucks a month.

(as well as Olajuwon as the title suggests)

I did see this come across my news feed. Apparently someone managed to steal a NASCAR car out of a hotel parking lot, and the cops don't think the thieves knew what was in the trailer they stole. Pretty crazy story.

M bringing in all of the bench, by the way. 19-0 two outs.

Wagner puts them down in order, again. 18-0 top of the third.

Romero and Sweet have already been pulled (and Driesenga wasn't in the lineup to begin with).

Wagner puts Toledo down 1-2-3, Michigan back to the plate...

Run rule goes into effect if a team is up eight runs after five innings.

There should probably be a "if you lose to Detroit you're relegated to NAIA" rule in softball.
Toledo was apparently picked to finish above only EMU in the MAC West this season.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Toledo has an awful softball||
Toledo has an awful softball program, but it's now 10-0 in the top of the first with no outs (runners on first and second). That's ridiculous no matter who the opponent is.
|6 days 15 hours ago||10-0, top of the first, no outs.||
Toledo is certifiably terrible, though. Still...

Kate Upton's got nothing on those 60°60°60° measurements.
|6 days 16 hours ago||Without getting into the rest||
Without getting into the rest of the internet and Google's policies, I'd definitely prefer keeping the sexybits off the site in general. There are literally millions of sites to see whatever type of naked people you prefer and they're all completely off topic for MGoBlog.

I went to high school one exit past Elgin on 90 and I'd disagree with it being the absolute worst. Driving across Illinois on 88 (west of DeKalb) or driving across Ohio on Route 30 make that stretch look exciting and full of culture.

I saw nothing but white and gold from my phone, I'm about 50/50 on my computer (it looked black and blue this time) and I don't see how trying has anything to do with it.
Edit: I'm only seeing black and blue now on, possibly due to Blazefire's post but possibly not?

Doing this on the floor with cameras rolling shows a lack of discipline from the coach, IMO. If someone tweeted from the locker room that he said exactly the same things with the door shut I don't think anyone bats an eye over it.
Better yet, it looked like a student doing something stupid (which as we all know never happens) and maybe someone like Beilein could squeeze a teachable moment out of it.

Remember that Fox owns 51% of the BTN. Not sure if the deal has been up for negotiation since 2007 but that might motivate Fox to spend big.

threads like this remind me that the MGoProfile series was awesome, and it'd be great to see a new set of them this offseason.

Is it common for kangaroos to have pet wallabys? Haven't made it down under.
