Part of the issue is that we have amassed our five wins against the bottom five in the league. It's definitely possible, but I wouldn't be betting on it.

There were definitely no press conferences or releases relating to recruiting out of the last staff. It's against the rules to talk about recruits until their LOI is signed.

Soup Campbell. Hell, even Hecklinski would be good. I'm not saying that Jedd is a bad hire, but there were alternatives.

Retained is the correct terminology.

Yep, I agree, it was a return, just trying to put forth the last traditional punt return for a TD.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Last non blocked punt return||
Last non blocked punt return I'm pretty sure was Odoms at Purdue in 2008.

" We've got an annual (Consumer Price Index) escalator. Annual.
We got a most favored program clause. There's never going to be an Adidas school that gets a nickel more than us, either in product or money."

Michigan's deal with Adidas also had an escalator clause in it, which further sweetens the pot.

I hate having to defend this guy, but him saying '"I'll just have to say this is about Michigan State, this is about the Cotton Bowl,'' Dantonio said, "and we're going to stay right there.''' doesn't really read to me as being a dick. He does enough things that make me hate him that we shouldn't be really trying so hard to find more.
|9 weeks 6 hours ago||I mean, I hate Dantonio as||
I mean, I hate Dantonio as much as the next guy, but him not wanting to talk about another team's coach when interviewed at his own team's bowl game is not an example of his asshattery to me.

CHI is generally used to represent "All airports in Chicago," same as NYC:

"Reached out" is a whole hell of a lot different than "offered the job to." No reason to not hedge your bets when you aren't assured JH is coming.

If I remember right, Big WIll was in our jumbo package but as a lineman, not as a fullback.

Wait, so if he was promised a car and house, but wasn't given anything, is that a violation? Legit question, doesn't seem like it would be.

Its not a one time punishment. Just like all other penalties, the flag will be thrown each time it is done.

This used to happen before the 4+1 format of the BCS too. Remember when Texas and USC played for the championship at the Rose Bowl in 2006?

Covered the spread in 7 of 12 games, which would have turned a profit for anyone that chose to take Michigan each week.

"Kirkland Jr. will spend just Saturday night in Ann Arbor and while all things are trending in a positive direction he told me that a commitment will not happen. He will stick to his timeline of an August decision date but another positive experience on campus definitely helps Michigan’s cause as these types of visits work wonders with recruits."

Why is this so terrible? I mean, yeah, they would basically be saying "our defense sucks, so let's make them outscore us," but that would be three sick wideouts.
