|1 week 1 day ago||Correct me if I'm wrong,||
but an athletic scholarship is NOT contingent upon a certain level of play, unlike an academic scholarship being contingent upon maintaining a certain level of scholarship (ie, GPA).
If the student-athlete is in good academic standing, hasn't violated the code of conduct rules or team rules then those are the breaks if he doesn't perform as well athletically as projected.
Therefore, why should "We could thus arguably say that Player X now has – through no fault of his own – reached a point at which he is failing to live up to his end of the scholarship-for-play bargain." even enter into it?
The more this becomes the way college sports operates, the more I agree that they should be paid. Because if you are going to manage the roster like a pro team, then pay them.
|1 week 3 days ago||And there are||
Still rumors of more transfers
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Aren't there quite a few walk-ons/preferred walk-ons?||
I always thought that they are part of the 25. Convert them to scholarship the next year and effectively even out the class sizes.
|5 weeks 22 hours ago||The Detroit news has an article||
That reveals that the team uses a tool called the lobster to help improve hitting. Maybe the tigers can borrow it; sure wouldn't hurt.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||He's had the playbook||
|6 weeks 5 days ago||And since when||
Are fans smart?
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Or they don't know what the color is.||
From the Detroit New's article: Chris MacGuire, Adidas's Director of Sports Marketing "The sentiment was to go back to the mustard -- for lack of a better term – away from the sun (color)."
|8 weeks 2 days ago||The article also quotes||
the prosecutor in the case, Lynne Gast-King, as stating that she doesn't believe that Clark struck his girlfriend.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||I find that they say Coke.||
Waitress: Would you like a Coke
Waitress: What kind?
And they don't mean regular, diet, etc. Orange Coke = orange pop
|11 weeks 19 hours ago||I understand that Saban has some type of psych assessment done||
On each player so he knows what approach works best with each
|11 weeks 2 days ago||Kids these days.||
Let me try to explain this in terms you might understand, WD. The absence of "pings" is to baseball as noon games are to Michigan Stadium.
And good riddance to 27-6 scores. That's a football game, not a baseball game.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||I think||
Things like chuck knolls coaching, the steel curtain, etc contributed to bradshaws rings
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Were they at least the same shade||
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Not so fast.||
Harbaugh has done some of this - like the time he bought blue work shirts for his team. And he may not like the quotes on theweight room wall, but he does like them on twitter.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Agree.||
I know you're getting some flack, but the primary responsibility for academic integrity lies with the college/university and the accrediting agency. The UNC scandal today, Univ. of Georgia scandal in the early 80s happened because the universities put athletics above their academic mission. The NCAA has to deal with the fallout because such misbehavior does give a school an unfair athletic advantage, but that's mop up duty really.
|14 weeks 21 hours ago||Yes.||
I checked MaizMama's diary, and the WFA the last 2 years took place during the satellite camps.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||It was announced in Jan||
that Harbaugh would speak.
There are pics from the banquet on the front page of the MHSFCA's web site. Some in suit & tie, some in polos, etc. http://www.mhsfca.com/
Here's video of Nussmeier speaking at last year's banquet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Okv7ey_PwzQ
|14 weeks 5 days ago||It's actually hard to do.||
The identical color will look different on different materials.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||yes|
|15 weeks 6 days ago||The Hokes declined & you got a note from the||
athletic development dept? Doesn't that sound like it didn't go through Hoke's office, but the AD's office?
Just the note makes me think that there are going to be a lot of juicy details in Bacon's upcoming book.
|16 weeks 41 min ago||I can confirm the pizza meeting one.||
Don't remember the thread,not looking it up because I have problems with th search here.
I can't address down votes; I usually stay logged out.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||The top of the 2-tone shorts looks an awful lot like||
the top of maternity pants.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||It did happen under Brandon.||
It was part of the deal worked with SCG that was announced just before Brandon resigned. The piece that got the most attention was cutting the price of student football tickets. But in the full release was a bit about even further reduced prices for students with financial need.
See 5th paragraph of this Daily article.http://www.michigandaily.com/sports/michigan-wolverines-football-dave-brandon-athletic-department-ticket-prices
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Additionally, Hoke inherited a lot of roster issues:||
Unbalanced roster (where were the Olinemen, for example), a 2010 class with ~75% attrition ,etc. It seems that as he got further into his tenure he was able to redshoirt more. Peppers & Cole were 2 notable non-redshirts from the 2014 class, but they were both exceptional players.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Also, he seems to be a leader in the locker room.||
It was reported after Hoke was fired that Hoke asked Desmond to help keep the team together.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Huh? DeBord hasn't coached at um||
For how many years? He had a fill in job just during the coaching search.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Gospels or||
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Don't know how tOSU feels about it,||
But headlines in Alabama papers shortly before signing day were about Alabama having cut a player. Flat out cut, as if he were an nfl player who didn't make the roster. Wasn't medical, wasn't school or character issues. He just wasn't a good enough player. So much for All those noble NCAA principles.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Why do so so many people confuse code of conduct||
with legal system?
You attend a college/university, you agree to abide by the code of conduct. There's no "innocent until proven guilty" with the code of conduct. It covers more than sexual misdeeds. For example, the daughter of a friend of mine was living in on-campus housing operated by a 3rd party. The daughter's roommate was a real piece of work. There were some serious issues which the housing staff blew off. But then the roommate took to posting threats against the daughter on Facebook. Because the school policy allowed parents & such to also file complaints, my friend was able to report the Facebook threats to the school, which took action as this was a serious violation of the code of conduct. That was the last semester the roommate was enrolled at the school.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||I think the author is referring to Mike McQueary.||
Not sure what his testimony ended up being on the stand, but the initial reporting was that he witnessed Sandusky assaulting a kid and instead of confronting Sandusky, calling 911, etc he turned & walked away. Then the next day he contacted Joe P re what he had witnessed. And then the game of telephone began watering down what McQueary had seen.
But let's not forget that this wasn't the only red flag wrt Sandusky that PSU officials were aware of. And what did they do? They moved Sandusky's camp thing from main campus to Berend(sic). Thanks, guys.
