that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

Keep drinking and stay up all night.

Probably the craziest thing I've seen at a "big time" event. Amateur hockey doe...

He said there's no way the Big Ten is going at it alone.
I'm with Hollis on this one. Improving academic performance is a worthwhile goal and hopefully this leads to a broader discussion. I don't think a "year of readiness" is a good plan, though.

Unranked, 4-1 PSU is not a good opponent. The game aired on ESPN2.
|17 hours 19 min ago||Cool.||
I said that a better schedule would have brought down the number of giveaways. I'm not seeing any connection between your replies and my posts.
|18 hours 3 min ago||Sorry for the dose of reality...||
But selling the same amount of tickets for UConn and Appalachian State would have decreased the amount of giveaways by almost 17%.
|1 day 9 hours ago||No argument there.||
But the whole "having an AD that schedules The Horror II" thing definitely didn't help anyone sell tickets.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Worth it.||
A good attorney will root out bad charges.

Eh, he isn't the one who made the schedule, which I'm assuming was a big part of the problem. Not saying performance didn't have anything to do with it obviously, but a big time home opponent would have brought that number down some.

So who had their money on LSA in the "most likely to come true first" signature pool?

Maybe I'm not remembering right, but wasn't their PP really good for at least a couple of the past years? 2013 and 2014 or something like that?
|1 day 12 hours ago||Oddly enough, special teams||
Oddly enough, special teams seem like the only actual strength for Sparty these past few years.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Some historical numbers...||
Pitt claims nine titles, Syracuse one. Each has one Heisman trophy winner, Pitt has 50 consensus All-Americans, Syracuse 12.
Mostly replying to say that the movie based on Ernie Davis' life, The Express, is definitely worth watching.
|1 day 12 hours ago||It doesn't excuse everything,||
It doesn't excuse everything, but Pitt has gone through the same number of coaches in the past 5.5 years that Michigan has since 1990.
I don't know if the program will ever be what it was from the nineteen teens to early eighties, but I would wager that the past five years of futility will be seen as an anolomy in future decades.
|1 day 15 hours ago||What's your point?||
Make this spreadsheet. Write that TPS report. Get coffee, turn around, take this memo off the printer, return to desk.
Most American workers aren't slaving away in coal mines. She has a good job no doubt, but it clearly fits into any reasonable definition of "work".

She's retiring from runway modeling, not giving up working altogether.

The article says the wolverine was being moved from Norway to Alaska, which seems like a place with a "lot" of wild wolverines and not too many zoos.
|2 days 10 hours ago||I wasn't trying to argue for||
I wasn't trying to argue for or against the larger points, only mentioning that all of them are at least ostensibly considered by the guys and gals who are responsible for the big picture. Not so much "trust the regents" as "the arguments you're making should be voiced in their direction", since the posts above seem to focus on the administration within the department.
|2 days 14 hours ago||I realize you haven't claimed||
I realize you haven't claimed otherwise, but the AD needs approval from the Regents for each annual budget. Using your business analogy, the board of directors of the parent company has already approved every dime being spent on these facilities, not just the CEO of the subsidiary.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Yeah.||
An indoor track is short enough that keeping speed through a turn can be difficult, banking the turn helps alleviate that issue. I'd assume every Big Ten school with an indoor track does.
|2 days 18 hours ago||I don't know about that. Sometimes it turns out okay.||
|3 days 8 hours ago||Forget fired for harassment,||
Forget fired for harassment, he'd have been (rightfully) charged for the Goldfinger scene in the barn with Pussy Galore if that happened today. Bond seems to reflect the times on everything, sometimes translating and sometimes not.
I do love the 007 series for the most part. Also want to add that Inglorious Basterds and Djengo Unchained are supposed to form 2/3 of a loose trilogy and I'm definitely waiting on the third, and as a kid Mighty Ducks was the greatest thing ever.

Funny right up until the surprisingly serious lawsuit in federal court.

I'm assuming it's the same reason a Greek house would get a 4/5 year ban. Ideally you want a blank slate that doesn't involve any culture of hazing at all.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Last five years.||
That seems like you're arguing against your own point. I don't have any ill will towards the Blackhawks, but five years of excellence is a much shorter run than the elite pro franchises can claim.
To use your Michigan example, TCU isn't all of a sudden a better program than Michigan because they've had a better five year run and are the better team this season.

No. No, man. Shit, no, man.
|4 days 8 hours ago||A couple things on Clark.||
First, he didn't grayshirt. He had originally agreed to grayshirt and then Hoke accepted him into the 2012 class. Second, that was a known condition for Clark when he committed. I'm not familiar with your long snapper's situation, but there's a big difference between asking a guy to grayshirt after signing day and having them agree to it months in advance.
