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.
|2 hours 56 min 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.
|3 hours 1 min 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.
|6 hours 10 min ago||I completely agree. Football||
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.
|6 hours 21 min ago||Admittedly I haven't given||
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?
|9 hours 2 min 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.
|9 hours 7 min ago||Really?||
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?
|9 hours 27 min ago||Coaches should bring the swag back.||
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.

Just FOIA all correspondence from the University that you can cross reference with publicly available contact info and submit records requests to the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office and other relevant agencies.

If predicting six or seven wins is being an unabashed homer we're all in for a rough year.

Like a musician hitting every note. Can't wait to see him on the field.

"I know a ton of fourteen year old girls that could kick Dwight's ass."
|1 day 13 hours ago||Choreographed to cross into||
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?
|1 day 13 hours ago||Fitz Toussaint sucked at Michigan?||
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.

Game week. We can do without the DupontCircle/uchi ranking and finance threads.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Can't remember the last time||
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.

Fully expect like a hundred people one-up this, but I did witness an Army SSG force feed a shy eighteen year old lukeworm water from the bathroom sink until he finally got a drug test done. Good times.

Tim Hortons might help hockey recruiting...
|3 days 6 hours ago||Take this completely FWIW,||
Take this completely FWIW, but I've heard secondhand from several people that Harbaugh wants earlier games.
If true, I still doubt it changes much since the networks have so much control, but might put a damper on night games.

The one I liked best was "The only state where governors personally make license plates".
Don't forget about our esteemed elected representatives in the federal system, or the upstanding folks running counties and cities or in other statewide positions.

If you've got an extra hundred mil to spare, why not?

Beckman wouldn't be an at-will employee though, he almost certainly has a contract with a buyout if they fire him without cause.
There's also the little matter of the WBB lawsuit going on (which could conceivably lead to Bollant being fired before the season is over), and a federal judge upholding a destruction of evidence claim against their former chancellor today in a termination/free speech case. The University of Illinois appears to be a complete dumpster fire right now.

Not really posbang worthy, but it would be pretty crazy if the NCAA went with Wimbledon nomenclature. Ladies' Volleyball and Gentlemen's Track and Field, ect.
"Mr. Robinson runs 87 yards for the touchdown, shoelaces flapping in the wind." or "Ms. Romero knocks the fuck out of the ball yet again."
