He couldn't close the deal on getting UConn into the ACC. That's a huge long term blow to UConn that happened on his watch. The AAC conference that UConn joined is largely irrelevant. This is going to have serious repercussions for their basketball program in near-term future.
Brad Bates would be a much better replacement.

|1 week 1 day ago||Actually they put the AD $8||
Actually they put the AD $8 million in the hole, with a terrible coaching hire in Hoke. If it wasn't for Harbaugh having the desire to coach here (as awesome as Hackett is, you don't negotiate with a guy like Jim. Jim does whatever the hell Jim wants. Hackett just asks him - "how much would you like to be paid to coach here").

You should check out Comcast's X1 TV platform. And if you don't like that, you can buy a TiVo and get a Cablecard.

A majority of the time it's the signal levels coming into the residence.
If it's a network issue inside your house, that's a different matter.

He didn't say those games were losses, only that they were close to being losses.
sparty will lose a handful of games this year, the Michigan game being one of them. Enjoy competing against us now that we have one of the best football coaches on the face of the planet and the financial resources that if truly mobilized, could easily outspend Alabama and OSU (what's our endowment size again compared to the endowment at these other schools?)
|4 weeks 4 days ago||tool of the toolest order||
Valenti is a huge tool. His hard ass routine corresponds to an eight year boner he's had since Carr retired and sparty has taken advantage of our decline.
Can't wait to listen on October 18th, after we beat them into the ground.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||you make up that $4 million in sales||
An extra $4 million in sales because its Nike may be true in year one/two, once everyone has replenished their game. I know I've been holding off dropping a couple hundred for replacement t-shirts/polos/hoodies/light jackets until the switch.
Even if in year 3 -> beyond, if sales come to an extra $2 mil. instead of the guranteed $4mil that adidas provides...Just Do It.

gahhh, please stop saying this without at least bringing this up...

|5 weeks 4 days ago||except many fans have refused to buy more adidas gear||
we will sell more than $30 million in additional apparel sales with Nike over a 10 year period, more than making up a few guranteed $3mil/year difference. Raback it.
|6 weeks 23 hours ago||Nike is in the business of making money||
you understand how contracts work, right?
Just have it written in the contract that Michigan has to first approve any and all apparel designs/branding with the AD first.
Preferablay someone in the AD with taste.
Tennessee wasn't paying attention, Nike wanted to quickly get a return on the money they are now paying Tennessee, and switched things up without first consulting Tennessee(because that would slow down sales, and because it wasn't probably written into their contract) and now Tennessee is not happy? Nike is just trying to make money asap since they just dropped a few million to outfit Tennessee.
This is a basic business/life skill - pay attention to your assets (your brand/images/logos/whatever) and have ultimate control of what represents your University.
It's fine that Nike is trying to make money on the deal - just have ultimate say over the Nike designs so it doesn't embarass you.
This is actually a good lesson for Michigan. Requires competent administration though, in many different departments/silos.

|6 weeks 5 days ago||Actually I agree with Lordfoul here||
stuff that's posted on MGoBoard these days is eyebrow raising. Go to 4chan or reddit for that stuff, I don't see it as a value add here.
I could maybe understand someone making that as an off-comment reply after a handful of replies were posted, in trying to be funny, but to post that as the lead reply seems juvenile and attention seeking.

Eh whatevs, Harbaugh can still attend but can't hock it on Twitter. Recruits we want to know about it will know about it, trust me.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||It can and will change very quickly||
Right now they can sell the results. The truth is the national draw of sparty is about as powerful as Oregon State, if Orgeon State had the same record.
Who grows up wanting to play for Oregon State? No one. When sparty reverts to the mean when Michigan starts winning this Fall, no one will care. Because sparty doesn't have the history, tradition, and money that Michigan does. Those three things carry you through the lean times. They have no reserves to carry them through those lean times when both Michigan and Ohio State are at full throttle. I tip their hat to them in that they have very much taken advantage of Michigan's downturn.
But Michigan has a limited window to right the ship before we start (and already have begun to encounter) a generation of kids who do not know of Michigan's successes prior to 2003.
Fortunately we have just the Michigan Man for the job.
|7 weeks 1 hour ago||just be sure to run the projection correctly||
it's not all about the guranteed money, it's also about the potential increase in sales when we switch back to Nike.
Nike only needs to offer somewhere between $3-4 million. There is _millions_ of dollars waiting in wallets for them to switch back to Nike apparel, more than enough in future sales to cover the hypothetical loss we will take fielding a lower offer from Nike.

There is ZERO evidence that incriminates Brady in any of this.
Good luck standing in front of a judge and saying "well, you know, we have reason to believe that he did it so...convict"
No, you idiot - that's what a warrant is for, to collect evidence substantiating from probable cause. That is not actually mean anything until it is proven that a violation had occurred.
There is no F'ing proof!
