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).

Love Cigar City. I'll have to crack open a Jai Alai when I finally get out of the office.
I live within walking distance of their tasting room and don't take advantage of that enough. Might have to remidy that this weekend...

Can you pick up some Gumballhead and make a slight detour to Tampa on your way back home?
Definitely go to Founders, HopCat is one of a few locations but also a good choice with great bar food.

I'll defer if any (non-koala) Austrailians want to chime in, but I'm pretty sure the kangaroo was a joey too.

Can someone confirm, and if open dates will be filled in as well? I'd rather wait until everything is sorted out if it's not going to update closer to games.

In 2003 they were.

Hockey is steadily trending upward in the US.
The number of USA Hockey registered players is up about 20% over the last ten years (442,077 in 05-06 and 533,172 in 14-15).

If he gets frustrated enough maybe someone will tranquilize him for us.

This seems like a Wisconsin-specific issue if he's gotten through the clearinghouse and will matriculate somewhere in the fall.
|1 day 22 hours ago||This was the exact problem||
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.

There's not a way to send a private message but if you both want to keep your email or whatever off the board I can put you and the OP in touch.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Jedd Fisch never played and I||
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.
|2 days 14 hours ago||That's exactly my point. It's||
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.
|2 days 15 hours ago||When Harbaugh was putting his||
When Harbaugh was putting his staff together, was there anyone discussing where Drevno or Durkin or even Mattison had played?
I don't remember one, and the only reason I know that/where they did play is because I just looked it up.

I put it in the HoF but then broke a couple other things and Seth reverted back to an earlier version.
We need to bring back the MGoProfile, keep the story in-house.

Seth to the rescue, although the +200 isn't there now.

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.

Proceeding without the +200?
|2 days 16 hours ago||It's not exactly the same||
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.

Very cool, but her title sounds temporary at this point.
There were a lot of interviews with NHL types around the hype of the USWNT in Sochi saying the last two big barriers for women in American sports were scouting and coaching positions, and it looks like there's been some solid progress since, as the OP mentions.

Replying here so people can see it: Turd's comment could be the first ever +200. I'll put it in the User Created MGoHallofFame under a new header if it gets there.

Am I missing something or is there an issue specific to Michigan Stadium that prevents scanning directly from the StubHub app?
I haven't been to a football game in a few years but had no problems scanning from my phone at Crisler and Yost last winter.

If mods were robots I'm pretty sure the past tense would have made something blow up. Thankfully, we're mostly humans and/or ponies.

No good in Tampa, although the rain has paused. Hearing we're in for another 6-7 days of this.

Navy Pier fireworks are a great memory for me, especially growing up and double especially later in the summer when school is almost back and the temperature is just right once the sun goes down.
