The following is the ages of the candidates mentioned above in 2014:

Martha Pollack 57

Arne Duncan 50
Rick Snyder 56
Dave Brandon 62
Patricia White 63
David Eisler 63
Susan Martin 67
Lloyd Jacobs 71
James Hilton 55
William Powers 68
Even though 60 is the new 40, many of the above over 60 years old may not want to take on the responsibilities of a highly visible college president when they are on the cusp of retirement. Likewise, the U-M regents may want a candidate who is "young" enough to serve at least two terms.
That leaves Marvin Krislov, Evan Caminker, Martha Pollack, Phil Hanlon, Arne Duncan, Rick Snyder, Dave Brandon, and James Hilton.

Kiffin may have saved his 2013 recruiting class by delaying Polamaly's termination until after NSD, but he also exposed his ethics to future recruits.
His short-term gain this year will serve as a warning to future recruits and give competing coaches a weapon to use against Kiffin in future recruiting.
Rather than hoping Kiffin gets fired, we should hope that he stays at USC and runs their program further into the ground.
As for Ty Isaac and Leon McQuay, they made their choices. Had Isaac committed to Michigan, we probably would not have gotten Derrick Green. A committment from Leon McQuay would have been nice but we still have good depth and talent at safety without him.
Let's move on and focus on those choose Michigan!

He is the same age as Shane Morris and would be been in the 2013 recruiting class without the extra year of eligibility. In Wilton Speight, we will be getting a 2014 recruiting class QB that is a year more mature physically than most other QB's in the 2014 class. In effect, we will be getting two 2013 QB's in Morris and Speight, but Speight will have one more year eligibility than Morris.

The key to Denard's success in the NFL is to be drafted by a team that has the patience to develop and maximize his talents rather than one that expects him to contribute right away.
An ideal situation would be to get drafted by New England and be developed to be the successor to Wes Welker. He could be catching passes from Tom Brady and Ryan Mallett for the next 10-15 years. A nighmare scenario would be to get drafted by a team that expects him to contribute right away.
In a way, his dropped balls at the Senior Bowl practices could a a blessing in disguise, because it lowers expectations while allowing him to showcase his athleticism. He might not get the big paycheck right away, but he could make up for it in a longer career with big paychecks down the road.

Dwayne Jarrett was arrested and charged for DUI on the morning of March 11, 2008 in a Charlotte suburb of Mint Hill. A police officer witnessed Jarrett run a red light and performed a sobriety test, which Jarrett failed. He was released on $1,000 bond. Jarrett later pleaded guilty to his DUI charge. Jarrett got a 30-day suspended sentence, must pay $420 in fines, and perform 24 hours of community service and could be suspended by the league.
On Tuesday, October 5, 2010, he was arrested for his second DUI in less than three years, after being pulled over shortly after 2 a.m. in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Dwayne Jarrett was cut from the Panthers on October 5, 2010 following his second DUI arrest.

Maize uniforms are a competitive advantage. They stand out more on the court making it is easier for the players to see their teammates. I would rather they wear a color consistently, that makes it easier for them to recognize one another, than to keep switching colors for the sake of symbolism.

UConn is ranked #58 by USNWR. It's just behind OSU (#55) and higher than Purdue (#62), Minnesota (#68), MSU (#71 tie), Iowa (#71 tie), Indiana (#75), and Nebraska (#101).
It's a land grant university with over 22,000 students on the Storrs campus.
The football stadium has a capacity of 38,000, which is definitely at the low end, but Storrs' proximity to large east cost population centers would give Big Ten alums in the northeast a opportunity to see their teams play within a few hours driving distance from home.
If UConn is admitted to the B1G, it could raise the quality of its football program and expand the football stadium's capacity.
Overall, UConn is on the low end sizewise, but would fit the overall B1G school profile.

It's not just Gardner's skills that have to be taken into consideration. Hoke is recruiting players that are suited for the West Coast offense. Borges is not going to delay the transition when he has the players (big WR's, TE's and FB) to run the WC scheme. He'll probably be moving away from the spread in 2012 as Denard and Gardner are more comfortable running the WC offense.

What a lot of academics don't understand is that when their university's sports teams win, it increases their university's overall name recognition. When their university's has a well known brand, it helps them when research grants are awarded.
A lot of academics complain about sports coaches being paid high salaries. They fail to recognize that when coaches are being paid well, it raises the salary benchmark for all university employees.
Academics are like a barrel of crabs trying to get out. Instead of helping each other escape, they drag down the ones that climb to the top of the barrel.

If 5'10" and 176 lbs is too small to play WR, then Anthony Carter and Desmond Howard shouldn't have played WR either.
A lot of schools did not recruit Mike Hart (5'10" and 175 lb) and Denard Robinson (6'0" and 179 lbs) as seniors in HS because of their size.
To say that Justice Hayes is too small to play is offensive - to Justice Hayes as well as the coaches who thought he was worthy of a scholarship. Don't judge a player by their size.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

The only bowl money that the B1G loses by Ohio not going to a bowl is the money from the lowest ranked bowl that a B1G team would normally go to. All eligible teams move up one slot if Ohio is ineligible. In most cases, teams going to the lowest ranked bowl, this year being the Little Caesar's Bowl ($750K payout), probably would lose money after expenses. Since the B1G covers the loss, B1G schools could actually come out ahead financially if Ohio doesn't go to a bowl.

That would give PSU the most flexibility until a permanent President and AD are hired. The new President and/or AD might have a protege they might want to bring along with them.
Hiring a HC before hiring his bosses would be ass backwards.
