- There's not a hard and fast rule about this. Don't be the guy trying to start it super early just so it's "your thread" though. It's pretty obvious when someone tries to do that.
- I like second half threads and suspect they'll be needed for every M game.
- lol LSA
- Just don't feed the trolls. We'll get them.
- It happens, traffic is gonna be crazier than Beilein at a sub shop.
- Sounds about right.
- Never has been.
- Do what you need to do with your downvotes.
- Never attack a player, but the distinction is personal vs. on field activity. Saying, for one random example that wasn't said a million times "Jordan Morgan is a bitch" is demeaning him as a person. Saying, for another totally not common refrain, "Bench Gardner" is commenting on his on field performance.

Imagine how jacked the Wings D would be if Howard's backup was Holland. We'd be having McCarty flashbacks every time someone even looked at Jimmy the wrong way.

From my understanding Adidas and ESPN/Disney are contributing big money for the HC (including Hutch, Red, ect.). I'll admit I'm out of my depth on specifics, since we were praising Schlissel for that above.
Edit to your edit: I don't know, you could be right but that wasn't my understanding. Sounds like something Mr. Yost might have an idea about.
|1 day 13 hours ago||That was an accounting||
That was an accounting anomaly because Dantonio had a big stay bonus paid out this year. Guy's a great coach but won't ever be paid what M, OSU, Texas, ect will shell out.
|1 day 13 hours ago||The endowment was $10mm, so||
The endowment was $10mm, so that gets whatever return M uses. Remember that the football coach's salary is mostly covered outside the AD, though. Hoke made $4.1mm last year but only $300k from the AD.

The most competent people are good at recognizing where they're lacking. I'm sure there's a clever and timely tie in to Socratic ignorance that I'm missing here, but oh well.
Schlissel obviously isn't the most plugged in guy to NCAA athletics, but he clearly identified and sought good council, which is exactly what a good leader should do.

monuMental, you and your wallpapers are one of the very best parts of this site. Glad to see you posted again and great work as always.

I completely agree. Football Saturdays were my only exception once upon a time and being out of school I don't do that any more either.
OTOH I also have no idea how people get hot and sweaty outside and long for a beer. If it's hot, I don't want anything but water. That's apparently weird, but I honestly think the opposite is what's weird.

Admittedly I haven't given this a lot of thought, but what's the distinction between this and licensing apparel rights or trademarks to multinationals, or tweeting M + Chobani or any of the other ways companies like Reeces get into the college branding landscape?
|1 day 19 hours ago||I don't prefer that style,||
I don't prefer that style, but basketball had done the block M + "ichigan" combo in 1989, well before Brandon got his hands on the AD job.
I wouldn't be surprised to see older versions on baseball and softball uniforms either.

That's mind blowing, but I can't find an account without the underscore and the underscore guy has been around for six years. Did the original just not make an account after the Haloscan days ended?

Crisler after curbstomping USC in the 1948 Rose Bowl:
Tom Harmon's QB and captain Forest Evashevski as Iowa's last Rose Bowl winning HC. Think a guy who lit a victory cigar with thirty seconds left in The Game is gonna coach in a hoodie? (No offense to hoodies.)
This man right here kicked so much ass in the Rose Bowl that they cancelled it for thirteen years, and he did it in a suit.

Choreographed to cross into the endzone at exactly zero? Or can they defy the laws of halftime and still get stuffed on a two point conversion?

He's 18th in all time career rushing yardage, fifteenth in rushing touchdowns while being the second rushing option on the field and played his senior season behind maybe the worst offensive line in memory.
Not saying he was snubbed out of a Heisman or anything, but if one back replicates his 2011 season this year the board is going to love him.

Can't remember the last time there's been complaining about a (non-political) topic allowed to stick around.
This probably would have been taken down if it was pushing newsworthy on topic stuff off the board, but American Pharoah racing seems worth a pro sports exception otherwise.
