|1 day 9 hours ago||Thanks for the quote||
Since I don't live in Hawaii, I can't understand the social climate back then. But that does seem like grasping at straws by someone. They used to play the Rainbow Classic in hoops and I was pretty sure the convention center they played at had rainbow in the title. Either way, I'm glad they reverted back. It was, and is again, one of my favorite nicknames.

I don't even know how to answer that without crossing over one of the 'don'ts' of this board, so all I can say is...Source?

So even if the majority of students want this game at night, there are a whole lot of people coming long distances that don't want this game declared an 8:00 start time this late in the process. I think Hackett runs the potential of making more people angry than happy with a night game.
If there's a way this can be spun as a TV decision with us unable to make a change, then at least ESPN/ABC would be the bad guys. This is what I've secretly been hoping for.

You give Oregon the Baylor schedule and they're probably 5-0 also.
|4 days 14 hours ago||I don't think Hackett is budging on a night time kick||
I'd go for it, but I think it's either noon or 3:30. Honestly, I'm surprised this is taking so long to get a time/network since both teams are likely to win on Saturday.
|4 days 14 hours ago||I logged on during a family vacation||
just to neg this. Wait until they figure out how to play Saturday's game in front of 35 of Maryland's most devote fans and Testudo and then something about the MSU game time will pop up.
|4 days 14 hours ago||If you don't live in Michigan||
It's hard to understand. But they are just insufferable right now.
|1 week 3 days ago||That's not the case just about anywhere I go||
It seems to be a part of so many arguments that are not allowed to be discussed on here. I've been in the south where religion is still king. I work at a Jewish organization where their religious beliefs are still big in that community. And look at how the Pope is dominating headlines.
I think we just have more going on thanks to technology and our diversity as a nation, so religion has company at the top of the food chain.
|1 week 3 days ago||1999-2001 were some frustrating years||
I still think the MSU game in 1999 is tough to put on the QB situation. We gave up 400 yards in the air to Bill Burke. That's awful. And our defense should've been able to hold a 20 point lead at home to Illinois. We may have still played for a MNC in 1999 if we had beaten Illinois.
And all of our 2000 losses were heartbreaking. Blowing double digit leads sucked. I still think we play for the MNC that year if we don't crap the pants in the second half against Purdue and NW. People were giving us benefit of the doubt because we lost at UCLA without Henson.
I am trying to forget 2001. Just the worst fall ever.
|1 week 3 days ago||Only 15 yards on the other 8 carries||
Obviously do not want.
|1 week 5 days ago||Balance that with his harsh "discipline"||
and I think NFL players wouldn't mind playing for him.
|1 week 5 days ago||If used, definitely||
I would do for the athletes the same as anyone else featured in an advertisement. If those people are getting paid, the athletes should get paid also, even if they have already graduated. The only way they should not be paid is if they signed a waiver saying their likeness can be used for free.
For video games, I'd just go with generic players to get past that hurdle. If someone wants to upload customized teams to their EA Locker for free, go ahead.
|1 week 6 days ago||I agree that Saban is probably who Irsay wants||
I'm sure Nick is enjoying time in his $11 million dollar house, but I wonder if he feels a bit bored at Alabama. Seems like his passion down there isn't the same. I can't lie, I'm hoping that the following things hapen this season:
Alabama loses Saban to the Colts
Caleb Kelly, Gary and any other star recruits take our remaining slots. And Iowa becomes are good team again and the B1G West becomes a true equal to the East.
|1 week 6 days ago||A game at a MAC school shouldn't count||
I'm sorry, but playing at Ralph Waldo Emerson stadium on a Friday night before classes start is not the same as going to VTech to play the castrated turkeys or us going to Utah.
|1 week 6 days ago||College basketball is slimy||
I can't imagine there were too many recruits Utah was in on that could ask for $50K. Might be a fun exercise to figure out who said player is.
I think it's naive to think paying players would solve anything. No school would pay a kid $50K a year. And even if they did, the underworld would put more money on top of that. I've never been a supporter of giving kids more than the monthly stipend they already receive. Classes are free and they're not kicked out of the dorms after freshman year. And most kids do fine without a car on campus. Some things are necessities and some are luxuries. They bring in millions for the school but so do all the kids and parents that are paying tuition.
Reduce practice time, give them an extra year to complete their degree and free health care for five years after graduation. Those feel like fair benefits that all NCAA schools could live with.
|1 week 6 days ago||You have to have the deep pass in Harbaugh's offense||
Either that or go four wide with your WRs and TEs and try to get your spacing that way. MSU would have a field day with our offense if we stay conventional with no consistent deep ball threat.
|1 week 6 days ago||I'd love MSU vs Pitt this year||
Only problem about thar matchup is that Narduzzi left on good terms. All those other matchups involve either a fired HC or a HC that left with no warning.
BTW, I would live on FauxPelini's Twitter feed for a whole month if that YSU/Neb matchup ever happened.
|1 week 6 days ago||This is revenge for 1984||
They know we've got 31 years of pain to deliver on Saturday.
|1 week 6 days ago||I think that's #999999||
They usually have crazy lines for us due to our fans.
|1 week 6 days ago||There should be more neutral site games up north against the SEC||
The SEC basically gets a home game in Atlanta and Dallas every year against top competition without a return trip. Between Indy and Chicago, we have two great venues to host those teams. I could better understand playing Florida in Dallas if there was a return game in the Midwest. If they're too chicken to play in our stadium, then at least play in our region.
|1 week 6 days ago||If he's rushing back||
he may not be very effective. I don't root for injuries, but I won't complain if his coming back too soon causes some confusion and erratic play on their d-line. One of those "hurting the team more than helping them" situations.
|1 week 6 days ago||Feels like a weekly commemoration||
I feel like this is my third straight Monday wondering about the sandbagging offense being both a Lions and Michigan fan.
|1 week 6 days ago||If throwing to the TEs open up the short passing game||
They must be sending Butt and Bunting about 15-20 yards downfield. The short passing game only works when the defense isn't playing in a 10-15 yard box comfortably.
|1 week 6 days ago||I earned the flag on the play||
Typing inbetween meetings on a minimized screen just begs for mistakes.
|1 week 6 days ago||That was only because of Peppers||
He wasn't even considering us until Pep committed. He tried to convince him to visit and there was some talk of an OV happening. But, well, we started playing football in the fall.
|1 week 6 days ago||Maybe someone should tell NW they're team is ranked||

What about your shirt?
|2 weeks 20 hours ago||Smith wasn't running up much yesterday||
I'm sure that's why Harbaugh didn't have him in the game.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Must suck to have a drought||
with a humongous ocean as your backyard.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||We beat Sparty||
You'll see some movement. Right now, pull against Oklahoma so we can get Caleb Kelly and for a zombie attack in Tuscaloosa and Auburn so we can get Gary.
