This is not like heading into the game with no O-line, or Threet-Sheridan-Dammit under center. We haz starz. This is more likely to be a clash of titans than "we're here for our beat down sir".
|1 day 22 min ago||Okay - lets do the math||
$488/4 = $122 / year
Taxes on that about 30% = $85K net
Out of state cost of attendance = $60K leaving $15K (How much do they get for stipend now?)
In state cost of attendance = $29K leaving $56K
Paying the players makes the case for staying in-state stronger. Anybody want to compete with just Michigan in-state players? This would result in Texas, Florida, Ohio, and California teams dominating college football. I also think it would cause issues with Title IX because non-revenue sports would go unfunded which may further reduce the number of paid players allowed.

Like the maize ones better, but still...
As long as the recruits love 'em I guess.
|2 days 19 hours ago||If you know what an 8-track is||
And listened to them, your virility was probably better then than now - so yeah.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Yes if we lose in Columbus||
No otherwise ...
|6 days 17 hours ago||Let's not forget we were short||
an injured field goal kicker for the Iowa game as well.
So yeah - no excuses.
|6 days 18 hours ago||The other intresting aspect is||
whomever wins The Game will presumably walk into the BTCG with quite a few bruises, and then play a possibly healthier Hornibrook.
|1 week 2 days ago||I beleive in the PSU/Joe Pa case||
there is this whole issue of actually witnessing the behavior, and never reporting and ensuring it to the point that it gets into the legal system at all.
In this case it is reported. While I think internal punishment (running stairs, etc.) is advised initially whether proven guilty or not (if the player admits to being there), it's OK to wait on suspension, etc. for the outcome.
There is a grey line here somewhere: making sure the case is fairly handled along with some fatherly administering of pennance, versus colluding to have it dropped or covered up to keep a player active, versus over reaching, versus what should be done even if the case is dropped.
|1 week 3 days ago||SEC Fans have been wishfully saying the same about Saban||
for years, and he doesn't even have the same rooted connection to Tuscaloosa that Jim has to Ann Arbor. I think the Saban model is the way to go - especially as get older. If a coach can find themself a good place where they can be successful on a sustained basis, they can set up for a long run and then focus on the fine tuning necessary to win championships (versus rebuilding from scratch).
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||I have a neighbor who went to Rutgers||
They are odd people who throw open partys for local riff raff. The dude walks out to get his paper every morning in open robe and boxers. My Ohio State neighbors have more class.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||No one liked Greise either||
it worked out in the long run.
We need to wait and see: Trust the Baugh!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||In my view they primary difference||
is the O-Line is all growed up. Then, calling play action on long yardage was foolish because everyone knew you couldn't get it on the ground (think Penn State 2013). Now, there's a chance (still not a good enough one) so you have to respect run or pass, plus any number of tight ends, H backs, ect. could pop out of the formation to catch a pass.
The problem with Borges was: we were a 1 dimensional team for the most part of 2013 - and that dimension had his ribs turned to paste vs MSU by predictable play calling. Worse, rather than designing plays to fit the 1 dimension, Borges continued to pound the square peg into the round hole. Meanwhile you could get two tickets for two Cokes ... [shudders, feels bad for Gardner/hopes he does well in Japan, moves on with morning]
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks for posting||
If it was an ACL he wouldn't be in the hospital on pain meds - so we were worried it was far far worse. This is positive news.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly what I came to say||
just re-watched the video this morning - Jourdan was turned looking at the ball and in the act of catching it. Rushing had just started to turn his head when Lewis pulled the ball in. I think his head turn was too late, he was a few steps too far downfield, and he would not have been able to catch it anyway.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||And he'll start throwing to the right and deep||
Because they've been hiding that all season even when losing just to fool us.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||My son wore a donjoy knee brace||
the first season after his ACL and meniscus surgery. We discussed this in relation to Newsome not wearing one. He says they are a bit restrictive, and also a bit annoying, slipping, needing adujustments, etc. He was happy to take it off.
As for Higdon and swelling knees - yeah - off and on swelling for up to a year was our experience.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||There were on the live blog Saturday too||
Wilton wouldn't even have been in to make the pass to Darboh. Haven't been to a game but I hear there are a lot of QB complainers there too. A whole lotta Francises that need to lighten up.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||This is awesome||
Minor suggestion just to add subtle Michiganization: stitch the outline of the Crisler wings on the helmet
|2 weeks 4 days ago||We need to do at least||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Changing centers mid season would not be wise||
Cole provides inside out leadership to the entire line.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||The donjoys||
have stops on them that disallow hyperextension. However those stops may have broken with the forces in that situation. I think it would have helped reduce or avoid injury, but you can't move as fast in them and if he cracked or broken his tibia, it would not have avoided that.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I agree with you||
it doesn't make sense to allow something that so clearly targets the knee.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||You can say that again!||
Totally agree ...
|2 weeks 5 days ago||At the very least||
he hyper-extended his knee. Anyone know how long the recovery is for that?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Yes, exactly||
and as I said above - the Navy seems to be headed that way too.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||This issue is all over the place||
The Navy announced yesterday it is throwing out 241 years of tradition, where a sailor is referred to by their rating (the profession within the Navy they worked hard to achieve through training and tests) for just their rank.
|3 weeks 47 min ago||Well, scenario two is easy||
Conference champions, because the other one loss teams already lost to a conference champion. (This is how you make every game count / no do-overs, which is the beauty of college football.)
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Assuming you have looked at this||
But college board has a net price calculator:
Good luck to your daughter!
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Northwestern may be your best option||
Depending on your income and in/out of state for Michigan then. (Now going through this senior application process for the second time. Stressful but exciting.)
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I was wondering during the game||
what bet middle ukulele guy lost.
