Agreed. He should ignore this crap and stay above and apart from it. Don't wade into the muck. It's not a good look.

Do M fans really travel well? It always seems they travel well for the biggest games but aren't so impressive (compared to other major programs) with more average games. For example, Wisky and Neb fans seem to travel well to all games.

Well, somebody is gonna make the money, and that somebody either had to be the billionaire owners or the players who actually, you know, play the game. Better the players get half than the fat cat owners get more than that.

Ah, the rural heartland team credited with a blue-collar work ethic.

Yeah these civil rights laws really have been a problem for us poor white folk.

Much as I dislike Team Paterno and think they got what they deserved, the OP overhypes the current report, which is based on a one-line allegation buried in an old legal document. Worth investigating? Absolutely. Proof? Not even close. Just saying.

God I can't wait for the team to bitch-slap these guys. Harbaugh will make them eat shit. At home.

Can you also post when you take your morning dump? Just so we're totally up to speed on you.

Carson Palmer is a high quality QB. Sam Bradford is pretty good when healthy. Griffin was good till he got hurt.

The annoyance stems from the AD seemingly making the decision about what he wants, rather than what fans want.

Lunardi moves teams in and out to keep people interested and clicking. Then, at the very end, he predicts which teams will actually get in. It's a racket.

Also RR no longer had the element of surprised he had during his WV run. Other teams caught up to his system.

Now Peyton has more time to shill for the corporate tools that coordinate his every move.

It's strange how many people here reflexively dump on another team's hire. For a team like Illinois, which has been a disaster, this is the best possible hire. He wasn't a great NFL coach, but he wasn't a bad one, either. He had some NFL success. And his name and reputation will definitely bring overall competency, a big recruiting bump, and a revived fan-base. He's gonna draw a ton of attention to Illinois. There's no way anyone expected the team to land a coach anywhere near his caliber.

Whatever you think of the free press, it's a really inappropriate move to just cut and paste most of a story.

The kid has suggested that he wasn't that interested in Stanford and wants to go his own way. Maybe blowing smoking. Maybe not. But it's possible he just prefers Michigan and Stanford knows this.

Screw PSU but the overall stadium experience is terrific. Iowa isn't far behind -- but has one of the nicest campuses/towns anywhere. And Madison is great on both counts.

Don't kid yourself. OSU is still loaded with talent and will likely be very good, especially by the end of the season.

Mississippi isn't a hotbed of talent. It's got a ton of racists. And it's not a very good school. But, hey, coeds!

Yeah. You're so much brighter than the New York Times, Uncle Goober.
|28 weeks 6 hours ago||The real sleeper hazard, I||
The real sleeper hazard, I think, is M at Iowa (well, to the extent that last season's Rose Bowl team can be considered a sleeper). The Hawkeyes will likely be good enough. Most pre-season polls, for what they're worth, have Iowa solidly in the Top 20. And Kinnick is always a tough place to play. Michigan hasn't fared well there in years. And this year's game will no doubt be a night game, which makes things trickier.

Iowa. And it's not even close. Fantastic college town. Great stadium experience. Good opponent t. Great people. But verrrrrry drunk students.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||Correct. By playing a B10||
Correct. By playing a B10 schedule, you'll always be playing a bunch of bowl-bound teams. But most of those teams will end up being okay/solid but not great. The difference this year is we don't have the kind of daunting out of conference game we usually have. No ND, Bama, Utah. This schedule sets us up w a good chance to start 7-0 going into MSU, which likely won't be as good as it was last season. Then we've got likely wins versus MD and Indiana. Iowa and Wisky are always challenging. And OSU is OSU.
|28 weeks 1 day ago||It's been discussed ad||
It's been discussed ad nauseum that next year's schedule is actually softer than usual. We have the two rival game as usual -- on the road, admittedly - but we'll be favored in every other game. Plus no other major non-conference game. Colorado is not major.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Dude, you must be new here.||
Dude, you must be new here. Every season attrition takes roughly 4-6 between now and fall. Guys transfer for playing time. Fifth-years get the handshake. And injury claims 1 or two guys. It happens EVERY year. They accounted for this. Chill.
