So much transparent hating going on in this thread about the Pens and Hawks it's embarrassing.

This guy doesn't schedule a night game and now this? He's been an absolute disaster so far. The decrease in quality between Hackett and this guy has been really, really scary. It is not a difficult job and yet we somehow keep finding people who are completely unable to do it well.
Scary and aggravating.

Don't know how many of these micro changes I agree with, but the macro problem that hockey is dumbly random is completely on point.

Why would they release it to Utah and not the general public. The only reason not to release it is to maintain some element of surprise. If Utah has it then there's no reason to keep it secret.

I guess Brian didn't value the observations of Tom's 'coaching buddy' who was either a random high school coach in Oregon who had never seen the team play or was the mannequin Tom would talk to after his nightly shot of mescaline. Either way, a real loss.

I don't think I've seen one thing that's led me to believe that Donnal is ever going to contribute on a good team in a meaningful way.

Let's make Rich Rod play Hoke in a game of horse to decide who we go with. Pretty much the only way to solve this riddle.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||There is no doubting his NFL||
There is no doubting his NFL credentials but he spoke at the Michigan Chicago Club and made it pretty clear that he isn't exactly a rabid fan. When asked how closely he follows the team he said something to the effect of "I watch when I can, but if I can't I'm not that upset about it."

I don't know if anyone out there ever took a class with Brian MacPherson in the Philosophy department but I have a theory that Tom Beaver is his internet message board alter ego.

|3 years 9 weeks ago||Market forces||
This is my seventh year on this campus (UG + Law school). I go to the games and wish other people did too, but I don't fault the people who don't.
I care deeply about Michigan football, but I care about it increasingly like I care about a pro sports team rather than a team that I personally, viscerally identify with. I attribute this mostly to the athletic department's drive to wring every cent it can out of the football experience. Of course there's the obnoxious ads, but it extends further than that. You can't buy a Michigan sweatshirt on this campus for less than $80. A t-shirt is $30. Constantly being gouged robs you of a feeling that something is "yours." It just makes you feel like a customer. And when a business doesn't respond to the desires of its customers (trifling complaints like cell phone service), its customers leave.
The righteous indignation from on-high comes from the fact that you interact with the team differently than this 'generation' of fan. The team was good and it was yours. As such, you take offense when someone acts disrespectful to it. Sure, you can sell less student tickets so that you feel better when you're at the game, but you're only going to push away the group even further. I'm not sure what the solution is, but I guarantee you it's not coming from Dave Brandon.

the truly darkest day for everyone other than dave brandon will be when uniforms start to contain company logos. dave's definitely looking forward to it though. he was worried that he'd run out of places to put advertisements.
"$800,000 for a hungry howie logo on the shoulder?? easiest money i ever made"

he doesn't hate brandon "so much." he thinks it's douchey to sell a home game like a kidney and squeeze every penny out it. it's much more about this being douchey than brandon being douchey.
and also, i'm a big brandon supporter, but come on...he's kinda douchey.

the thing about urban's desire to put in a third digit in their scoreboard made me involuntarily squint into the "not sure if serious" look.
this isn't the mountain west and braxton miller isn't tim tebow. the guy has every right to be confident, but geez give yourself a little margain for error. that fanbase already has ludicrously high expectations and you're trying to take them to another level?
i don't know about this particular context, but a massive ego in life in general is rarely a positive trait. my gut feeling is that he'll do very well for himself there but in 20 years they'll be talking about tress and not urb.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||it's interesting to me that||
it's interesting to me that you can have your best offensive line in 20 years and still worry about our defense. i think with the coaching that they'll get that they'll end up being pretty good, but asking an essentially brand new front four to open up against a proven, experienced alabama offensive line seems like a tall task.
i hope you guys are right though.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Not the same||
Telling someone that they don't have an offer and telling someone that they are no longer considered committed are distinctly different situations. Especially in the case with Dunn who was a commit in title only. No one's saying it's a big deal or dirty or anything like that; it just seemed like kind of a drastic step for someone who's a lights-out recruiter to take.
|5 years 5 weeks ago||We have positional needs that||
We have positional needs that we need to meet in this class. The breakdown leaves a few spots open for players that you like enough to take. It's not a situation of the coaches wanting another TE or RB. It's a situation of them liking a certain player enough to use one of those freebie spots on him. The identities of people the coaches feel that strongly about is becoming clear (Isaac, Orndoff, Green, Levenberry, etc). The fact that the coaches continue recruiting guys at positions that are "full" speaks much more to how much they value the individual player moreso than how much they value a certain number of recruits at a given position. If I'm ever going to trust the coaches it's going to be in regard to who they let snatch up these precious free spots.

When will we get to hear how much weight everyone put on/off in the awesomely short off-season?
I don't know why but that's one of my favorite parts of the off-season since it can only ever be 100% positive news.

4/5 of the teams in college football will play tomato cans in the first week of the season. Yet, they will scout these teams. We may be no where near as good as Alabama but we have one of the most dynamic offenses in college football. We're definitely not going to be beneath their notice.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||No shot at a 1 seed||
I agree with the logic that the winner of the B1G regular season and tourney should have a shot at a 1-seed but this is an odd year. It's highly unusual for a team with 5 conference losses to be the regular season champion. Even though it might "feel" like we should be a top seed the tournament committee is going to have a very hard time giving that distinction to a team with 8 losses.
It's a shame too because if you take the Iowa and Arkansas losses off the board I think that it would still be well within the realm of possibility. It's obviously been an absolutely amazing year but Iowa has kinda peed in our fruit loops.
