“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”

Eh, I don't think the training really started with Obi-Wan. He got one rudimentary lesson with a lightsaber and the extent of the rest of his training was "use the Force, Luke." It's three years between then and the beginning of The Empire Strikes Back, during which Luke wasn't doing much of anything, and barely any time at all between that and Return of the Jedi. Yoda started him basically at the beginning.

Come to think of it, I can't name Alabama's AD either. And yet somehow, some way, without the AD jumping into every spotlight he sees, the Alabama "brand" is as strong as ever.

I have an MBA and I have no fucking clue. I think it means "we're gonna sell yogurt."
You can tell it was written by some dipshit who thinks his (or her) use of fancy words makes it important. I mean....
I do writing Englishes now?

I agree with your take on this. I mean, this is not to defend Brandon's tenure thus far. But if things improve, I don't care what the motive is. If he kept silent, he'd be bashed for keeping silent.
And if he's on the way out, anything good he does at the end of his tenure is likely to be kept by the next regime.

There's only one reason to work on it all day: Lawyers. Otherwise, a simple statement can be out in a matter of hours, if not minutes. And there's only one reason you need lawyers, and it's spelled C-Y-A.
That in itself is terrible PR.

Disagree.... if Brandon had said, "Student ticket prices will not go up next year," I guarantee the reaction would be, "oh, so in response to these very loud and clear complaints, your answer is 'we will literally do nothing.'"
|4 days 10 hours ago||No offense to the||
No offense to the letter-writer, but "8-year-olds like it" is kind of a crap reason for doing swaggy uniformz. I used to really like the Carolina Panthers when I was in, oh, late elementary to middle school, because neat colors. I grew out of it within a couple years and had long since stopped caring by high school. (I do still like the colors, but didn't exactly replace my Carolina Panthers Starter jacket with another one.)
Besides, the fact that the gentleman saw Purdue and thought it was Oregon is all the more reason why Purdue was making a huge mistake. If you've done your job, anyone can turn on your game and know who's playing without needing to be told.
Also, who wants to bet that Fairfield was offered free tickets to the game as part of the incentive to make the trip, with the thought of "anything to make sure we hit 100,000"?

Possibly right.... but I'm not laying down any money on that. Now that the regents are actually saying this with their own voices, I'm sure they and Schlissel (not to mention an army of lawyers and PR people) have had all the necessary discussions. Now, I'm sure the regents won't stand up in the meeting and go "fired!" but once that public meeting has been had, all for the sake of transparency you see, wink wink, there are no more barriers to Schlissel acting.
|5 days 11 hours ago||If this were my show I||
If this were my show I wouldn't do any muppets so as not to be accused of dancing on any graves. It's one thing to call loudly for a firing and maybe even to slam the door on his butt on the way out..... but I'd stop at kicking him down the porch steps, too. I think it'd be unseemly.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Well, I know she didn't say||
Well, I know she didn't say those exact specific words. The point is that this is a regent - not a spokesman, not a "source", but an actual regent - discussing this. And not once did she say anything about Brandon's job being safe or denying there's any reason to fire him or anything that people usually do in a hot-seat situation right up until the ax actually falls. Which says everything.
|5 days 12 hours ago||There's no way an actual,||
There's no way an actual, living, breathing regent would come out and actually say "the topic is the AD" if there were any decisions left to make regarding Brandon. Would they?

College basketball teams take on new identities every single year. I absolutely loved me some JMo. Stauskas was the kind of player where I was constantly thinking "it is so awesome that this guy is on our side." But the exciting thing about an approaching new hoops season is wondering who's going to capture our attention this year, and how? LeVert? Irvin? Donnal? Chatman? Eeeeeeeee Beilein.

I have Lions season tickets, which I've had for a few years now, and when I got to my seat for the very first game I found I was sitting next to some old friends from growing up who have their season tickets right next to mine. Completely random and out of the blue. It's a great arrangement - not only do we now get to hang out at games, but we can occasionally swap tickets if one of us is going to be out of town for the holidays. I got to bring my dad and all my brothers to a Christmastime game a few years back; they'll get to do the same this Thanksgiving.

"Best of the UTL series" isn't saying much. I'm under 35 and think the blue pants are stupid.

That offsides is so technically correct (the camera angle makes him look less offsides than he really is) and so never, ever called except apparently in high-profile situations where the refs are being extra picky. It's like holding. Watch any regular kickoff and you can find someone offsides by about that much.

OK, fair enough, but I still don't agree on the grounds that if you don't trust your backup QB even to take a basic snap, that just opens up a whole host of other issues.

All valid points, until we were handing off to run down the clock, were obviously not ever going to pass, and Devin was basically hopping on one foot to reach the handoff point.
"If the kid wants to be out there then he should be" isn't a statement that should apply all the time. Good parents don't just give their kid candy every time he asks, so if Hoke has 115 sons, then maybe exercise some grown-up judgment and send Bellomy in to hand off so Devin doesn't hurt himself worse than he already is.

No more blue pants. It doesn't look like Michigan. I don't get how everyone can be like "boo Dave Brandon for destroying tradition" and then pivoting immediately to "man I love it when we change something that's been traditional since even before the winged helmets."
Besides, teams just look dumb in general when the jerseys and pants are the same color. It's a terrible look regardless of what color they use.
