|2 weeks 15 hours ago||Two thoughts there||
I appreciate your trying to understand the point of view.
My response to that point of view:
1) Paterno reportedly had several opportunities to truly stand up for those values he espoused, and he failed to do so.
2) Reading today's news, there were several additional coaches and assistants who witnessed or heard of things and could also have lived up to the values.
3) Given 2, there must have been general knowledge of odd behavior (which has been alleged in the court documents) that the very people who want the statue put back themselves knew about.

|5 weeks 3 days ago||What bugs me is the endowment||
Michigan runs a constant capital campaign, and the bulk of that money funnels into the endowment, or facilities apparently.
Unlike Northwestern with a similar student body, and lower endowment, or Duke or other Ivys with similar per student endowments, Michigan uses very little of that endowment for scholarship. (Run the net price calculator on collegeboard for Michigan, Duke, Cornell, and Northwestern.)
The net effect is a much larger percent of very wealthy out of state or country students (who subsidize in state students since the state no longer does). At roughly half the student population, this makes the economic diversity of the student body much more lopsided than it should be. (i.e., they keep flapping their wings about why the student body isn't more diverse - mind staggering cost is why).
Suggestion: If this is an issue to you, and you give money to the Michigan capital campaigns, call the college or department of your choice within the University, and find out how you can contribute to a scholarship fund, rather than (or in addition to) the general capital campaign.

Each had/s warts (rust, miniscule A/C vents and massive oversteer if not driven right, oil consumption and stupid plastic clips on transfer case linkage), all three a joy to drive and work on. Wish I had kept the first two. I also wish the diesel Wrangler had made it into the US market (same testing cost constraints).
Worst: 04 BMW 530i with manual and sport package. Whatever software they had in the car (most likely for US market automatics), constrained power at 5000 rpm. You'd just start to really sink into the seat and boom, you're into your seatbelt, then back into your seat for the rest of the way up to redline (an exaggeration would be the Apollo 13 launch scene). It took them my full 4 years of ownership with constant reflashes to fix it. Was never happy with the car, especially for the price. Will never buy a BMW again.

Hey, has anybody had experience with Medium Heavy rear Old Man Emu 2-1/2" lift springs on a 4 door Jeep JK? I went with the recommended light springs, but the back end feels wallowy with the hard top on - especially with teenage sons in the back seat. ARB USA says the ride may be a little harsh with the Medium Heavy springs.
I do not have a heavy rear bumper and spare tire mount.
|8 weeks 14 hours ago||Right||
So the old school locks on the early Bronco my dad had were the get out and twist kind. Those were lockers, and when you unlocked them you had to back up 10 feet to fully disengage.
The transfer case 2WD, to 4WH to 4WL was a different lever inside the Bronco on the tunnel. (The shifter was a three on the tree.)
Most new 4WD vehicles do not come with lockers and are just push button between modes or have a lever like on my Jeep JK. Some (like my Rubicon) have electronic bush button lockers - others are retrofitted with either old school manuals (Warn) or air activated (ARB or Detroit Locker).
The advantage of lockers are all four wheels are turning all the time. Your turning radius is much reduced, but if one wheel starts slipping, the others keep going which is really useful in mud, sand or snow. Without lockers, unless you have good traction control, the slipping wheel just spins.

|12 weeks 1 day ago||Sherman marched to Atlanta from the Northwest||
The Atlanta Campaign, began in Chattanooga, TN. If they passed through Alabama, it would have been the Northeast corner. Having captured and burned Atlanta, Sherman's march to the sea departed from Atlanta and went on to Savannah.
One of the Generals from the Atlanta campaign - John T. Croxton - is the one who later in 1865 captured and burned most of the University of Alabama and anything of value in Tuscaloosa. It is said however that the University President's wife (Mrs. Garland) went back to her house and shamed the Union raiders into sparing the house - thus the President's Mansion still remains today.
So Croxton is the General for raiding Alabama.

It is one thing the practice the steps of heads up tackling on dummies, it is totally another to figure out effective pursuit angles, likely cuts, etc.and then follow through on a tackle of a real live person who is trying to avoid or break free of you.

|25 weeks 4 days ago||Because then every school in America||
would offer 18 to 28 (or so) of the same top 100 guys as everyone else, and would be scrambling to backfill on signing day.
It is like applying to college: universities accept many more students than the number that end up enrolling. The fine print of the acceptance letter says you have to keep up your grades, and take a rigorous course load. Students are typically accepeted to many schools, all with the same fine print. Heck, the might even make a deposit at one school, and switch to a better one if they clear a wait list or deferred decision.
The main difference is, rather than thousands of incoming Freshman class slots, there are only tens of football scholarships, and only ones in specific positions. So - football coaches have to offer enough recruits that they think they'll sign the right mix and caliber of players to complete. They cannot accept every commitment, and those they do accept have fine print.
The situation sucks, BUT it is the reality of life. That reality by the way includes almost all high school football players never playing in college. Both of these guys have offers from other D-1 schools.

Between fall graduation, and recent departure announcements they are probably OK with the Early Enrollees for Spring Practice.
Bottom line is: whatever the rules are, the coaching staff will work within them because they have to.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||I thought counting or not has to do||
with playing time. If the Academic Scholarship walk-on actually plays then they count. If they are developing on the practice squad and don't play then they do not.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||I believe they don't count towards 85||
until they get to school, at which point in time graduating seniors, 5th years no longer on scholarship, and eligible players transferring at the end of the semester no longer count.
Why is there so much angst on this subject? We know players are going to move on. From what we can tell they are being treated realistically but fairly. In many cases those who have moved on (Cox, Rawls, Fleet, Countess) have done well.
|28 weeks 9 hours ago||Question: how do you staff a camp||

|30 weeks 2 days ago||Uh - no||
They have to leave the program by the time the NSD recruits start their scholarship, which typically is mid summer or fall.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||I think you need to get off your soap box||
On this blog, there are numerous where-are-they-now threads about former player didn't perform at Michigan or left the team, or didn't make it onto the team (e.g., Demar Dorsey). These threads show that people care about many players enough to track them even when they are irrelevant to the program.
Most of those statements expressed concern for Lewis, and concern that whatever she was doing might impact the program (e.g., Cam Newton's dad).
Is it OK in your mind to be concerned about both?
|31 weeks 2 days ago||When I read that, I didn't trip on it like you did.||
To me he was saying the allowance he gets for room and board as part of his scholarship. Not sure when the stipends start, but maybe that too. I am sure compliance wishes he was more specific though.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||Guess it keeps having to be said||
a) if students are subsidizing a sport, as they are at most universities, then there is no mythical millions the athlete's are being bilked of (unless you want to get into Title IX and coaching salaries)
b) if these kids went to a minor league instead - same kids - they'd make way less than the value of their scholarships while being taxed, not have near as much access to the training and facilities they do have in college, and not have the opportunity for the 95% who will not play on Sundays to get a college degree
c) b implies that at least some of the millions are in fact brand value of the University football program
If we want to go the "basic income" route like Finland fine - but the stipulation still should require part of that income to be spent on full time enrollment in the University - and then there are taxes.
I believe the NCAA should allow the athlete to profit above board from their fame while in school (because again 95% of these guys will never have the opportunity to otherwise), but that process has to be above board and taxed.
Bottom line: I would bet at most universities, if you took the net income after expenses of football or basketball, and split that income between the players and then taxed it, it would be less than what they are getting now.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah but Lions ...||

You have to really want to continue playing football and really want to drive ships or planes or Marines and be willing to work very hard at academics. Thankfully, these students exist.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||The one sure fire way||
to beat the spread is put more points on the board than they do. If you can do that while being able to run against them, thus controlling time of posession, even better. (Think back to the last time we played Wisconsin, or more positively Florida ...)
|33 weeks 1 day ago||At first read of your comment above||
I didn't agree - then I re-read, and read this one. You are right - acknowledge both sides.
This is exactly what I think Michigan should do about the Fab Five, and it would be wonderful If Chris Webber could take the same approach: appologize for the damage done to the program while still saying that he got caught taking a small benefit relative to the millions the University and sports broadcasters were making off the Fab Five.
The same by the way goes for Joe Paterno - his bloody son, and the fan base would acknowledge that Joe Pa should have done more when the administration clearly did not take action ... just that acknowldgement, and the passing on of that tragic lesson of a great 75 year old person not coming through when it mattered the most ... and the University, football program, and Joe Paterno would be a lot farther along in regaining outside perception.
I went through the UNC Basketball Museum a while back. They had a display with a player's African American Studies degree as an example of how great it was these kids get educated. Clearly in current light they should probably switch out for a different diploma - but there is an opportunity for a lesson in what not to do there as well.

We'll be fine. We have Mattison for the bowl game, and Harbaugh will find the right set of coaches for the defense.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||She may very well be a great person for the job.||
My point is, she needs to go through the same career progression as the other three, and hopefully the University, and her supporters help her in that progression - as Bo helped Warde Manuel.
Without knowing who she is, or if she has held the position at another school, it is hard to tell.
To me this is related to the Durkin question - the way you get a qualified pool of candidates, is to rotate the good ones out to build thier careers so when you need them, they are ready (i.e., breathing out is just as important as breathing in.)

|35 weeks 1 day ago||Similar experience to those above||
The fans behind us were vocally annoyed at the Zettel targeting call, but I assured them it was being reviewed, and no such call in Michigan's favor had been upheld the entire season. We proceeded to have a debate about who was screwed by the refs more, and wound up agreeing that the O'Neill crew had to go. Like Brian on the main page: in hind site I am glad Zettel is playing this week.
The concensus was they used to hate us and don't like Lloyd Carr, but now really hate Ohio State, Urban Meyer's cheating ways, and especially Ohio State fans. In contrast, we apparently treated Penn State fans well last year, though our night games are quiet compared to Happy Valley.
Franklin recieved much criticism, especially with timeout mis-usage in the second half, and there was at least one guy who wanted Hackenburg pulled (sooo last year in Wolverine fan emotions).
It was a good trip, and I would definitely do it again.

I switched to Sling TV when first came out. The service was good with a Roku3 and cable broadband but you are only buying one stream, and most shows are not available for playback and there's no DVR.
So we figured out we needed two streams and three Rokus, and we still had no way to watch some shows we missed. Plus I usually get over the air local HDTV stations pretty good. When it works over the air HDTV is better than digital cable, however sometimes the signal strength drops - particularly when the leaves are on the trees.
So I was hearing occasional hey you stole my sling, and NBC isn't working and my show is on.
Then football season came around. And I am back on cable and it costs about $10 a month more with the sports package over the two Sling TV subscriptions.
One thing I figured out: the basic digital channel tuners DTAs are fine for most rooms and cost $1 a month, so I have one DVR cable box only and that keeps the subscription cost down.

I think Speight may have the better are, but Rudock is more comfortable and a lower risk. The problem we have is MSU, and Minny just showed that if you stop the run, you limit the offensive production. That is where we have a problem with Penn State, and Ohio State.

There are a ton of links about how horrible they were - particularly in replay - last year in the Ohio State - Penn State game. (Yes ll PSU fans are conspiracy theorists.) They also officiated the OSU, Indiana game this past weekend where there was at least one horrible replay review.
They were the crew for the Oregon State game earlier this season. Remember the Harbaugh meltdown?
These guys suck, and should be broken up and replaced - particularly the replay official.

I guess I was lucky not to be piled onto by half a football team. He'll be feeling that hip every time the pressure drops in advance of a storm, or just before it snows.
As for taunting - a student posted on here the other day, that some of the Spartans down there were taunting, though I think that may have gone differently if Watts-Jackson was able to run back towards his bench.
|39 weeks 5 days ago||The other thing he didn't mention||
on where he could improve, is coaching staff management. It is great that Hoke and Rodriguez are loyal to their guys, but Hoke really needed to make some changes.
|40 weeks 8 hours ago||While I don't think they call that||
just like they wouldn't call pass interference on a hail mary, the Spartans are a full yard + beyond the line of scrimmage and the longsnapper is tumbling backwards before the clock ticks to 9 seconds.
Still - they didn't hit him before he snapped it, and if he had snapped it better the bull rush would not have mattered.
|40 weeks 11 hours ago||I was thinking||
if the receiver runs into a ref and falls down - pass interference ....
|40 weeks 15 hours ago||They wouldn't get||
the bitter sarcasm, and think we were being literal and supporting thier crack officiating crew.
|40 weeks 15 hours ago||Hey, we could do one||

|40 weeks 1 day ago||So get a 1 Jersey, and some Maize duct tape||

|40 weeks 1 day ago||Or the call should have been reversed||
during the replay review.
|40 weeks 1 day ago||Couple good video||
of the longsnapper being mugged along with the skycam video showing the snap coming to Blake. That gives rational people a way to process what happened.
Blake didn't have a chance. It's hard to tell if he even ever had posession. There were 9 other guys on that play (not including the longsnapper).
This without even discussing MSU's fullback touchdown, that game was a team loss.
|40 weeks 1 day ago||Even if they had||
it would have been review by replay, and the replay would have gone against us.
|40 weeks 3 days ago||The last play aside||
This game is what I expected. I told a UGA friend, we were going to hit a game against a good run defense that was going to force us to pass to open the run, and that is where our lack of a developed QB was going to challenge us. They (the offense, including Rudock) actually put enough points on the board to win.
If anything the defense underwhelmed against a beat up MSU OL, but held on, and came through in the last series.
Luck was not with us.
|40 weeks 3 days ago||Why even punt.||
Run a safe play on 4th and 2. Use as many seconds running it as you can. And defend MSU for one or two plays.
|40 weeks 3 days ago||Nice try||
I don't feel better
|40 weeks 3 days ago||I feel like I did right after Chris Webber called the time out.||
Stunning, so pissed, and so stunned

|40 weeks 6 days ago||Which is exactly why Fee Fi Foe Film||

|40 weeks 6 days ago||I am hoping Connor Cook||
emerges with 2013 Devin Garnder-like PTSD from this game.
I mean, I don't wish for anyone's ribs to be transformed to paste, but if we could just gently plant him on the ground 7+ times in a threatening but careful way, that would be wonderful.
|40 weeks 6 days ago||29-6 Michigan||

|41 weeks 7 hours ago||I was looking at the stats archive||
And unlike Devin who had a past season with only two games, Mario has played more than 3.5 games (or 30%) all four seasons.
I guess, as you say, if they go after the less than 30% play participation in the games angle, maybe. But I am not seeing it.
And I agree with Durkin - here is a kid who could really use an additional season to show what he can do.

Like I said here:
We were 33 rows up from the bench. The first 10-15 rows were mostly Michigan fans and we gave Mario a standing ovation as he came to the bench, for which he returned a smile.
As the trainers evaluated him, you could see his head drop. I knew the look. My son had the same look when I told him he'd torn his ACL - the just-when-things-were-going-great-now-this look.
Greg Mattison came over, talked to Mario, and patted him on the shoulder. So did several players.
He got another ovation from the Michigan fans as he walked to the locker room on crutches.
Mario was having such a great game too.
I hope he rehab goes well for him.
|42 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah - that was a bummer||

It sucks, and I hope it is not as bad as reported.
|42 weeks 4 days ago||In my view the hype every time||
does a disservice when the threat is real and significant.
In my experience, local news reports more responsibly, than national for these things. Where as national news may be reporting OMG Hurricane Run for Your Lives Oh the Humanity!
Local news usualy gives more meaningful information about track, timing, and things you may want to consider like what you should have in your hurricane preparedness kit or if you need to evacuate what to bring and where to go. They only turn the volume up when the situation becomes urgent.
To me the other un-responsible bit are all the reporters outside in the hurricane doing exactly what they've told people not to do. It only encourages thrill seekers.
In the cases on Andrew, Katrina - many people mistook their experience with lesser hurricanes and assumed it was safer for their familiy and personal property to stay home. (There was about a 24 hour trigger on both of those storms, and you have to be prepared to make a very fast decision.) For Sandy, it seems to me that most people just did not have practical experience or understanding with hurricanes, and storm surge in particular. Of those Katrina was the biggest tragedy, largely driven by the elevation of New Orleans which everyone had apparently became complacent about.
|42 weeks 4 days ago||Here's the thing||
Hurricanes are not like earthquakes or tornadoes. They don't just suddenly occur.
The game with hurricanes is to sit tight and watch through days of news sensationalism, fighting for an excessive supply of water, toilet paper and milk at the grocery store all up and down the coast, and then be smart enough to recognize the point when the hype gives way to a real threat (usally about 1-1/2 days in advance).
If you are inland, that means bring in your patio furniture and anything else loose outside, actually lay up a store of bottled water and canned goods, fill your bath tubs (with flushing water), fill your gas tanks and cans and grill gas, charge your cell phones, and prepare to barbeque everything in your freezer between clearing downed trees.
If you are in a coastal or low lying area - or below sea level (e.g., New Orleans) - evacuate.
By the way, if you are on the northwest side of an oncoming storm, you are likely to get some breezy nice weather in advance with clouds streaming from the north east to the south west. The Hurricane sucks down northern weather in that quadrant.
Ever since they announced the storm passing up the coast on Monday, the weather on Saturday was bound to be this way.
Again, while the Big Ten probably made the prudent decision at the time from a potential travel disruption standpoint, this was never an "unthinkable" threat. Hurricanes don't just show up like Sharknado and destroy the place killing thousands unexpectedly.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||I know - so much worry||
about a hurricane that will be days away.
The ticket prices had held up well until the panic started, which meant to me the Michigan crowd was going to be present and vocal. Kind of a bummer it's been moved up.
|42 weeks 5 days ago||Was going to comment on your alarmist post||
yesterday, but I was on the road. They are NOT going to evacuate College Park. If you look at Washington DC on your map, it is way up the Potomac River away from the coastline.
The states of emergencies you linked, are not recommending an evacuation at all yet, much less Washington DC (or Northern Virginia as a proxy).
I live in North Carolina, and have lived in Northern Virginia. If they evacuate anywhere, it will likely be along the coast. If this game was at Old Dominion University or UNC Wilmington - that is one thing. Those areas might get an evacuation notice. DC - maybe along the Potomac riverfront. Not College Park.
Your posts are ridiculous.

the 97 defense was just so fucking aggressive, that all other defenses seem to pale in comparison. Particularly the few years before in retrospective comparison. It was like watching Denard, or Desmond - held breath of expectation - but for an entire defense: grown men running headlong into family room walls after each play.

|43 weeks 6 days ago||Recalling the Countdown to Kickoff videos||
from the Rodrguez era, I particularly remember the first one or two would be players checking into the team hotel for fall camp. I believe this was a common practice during the Carr era too. The underlying logic is the team cloistered in one place, and spending their time in meetings / hanging togther (e.g., the Roh / Lewan by the pool segment).
That at least predated Brandond / Hoke. Though the addtion or top chefs / ordering what you want may have been added.

to get reps in while they were playing not as good defensive lines, so they could learn for the games against better defensive lines.
The OLine looked solid late last year and against Utah in pass blocking, so Harbs and Drevno altered their play calling to devlop run blocking more. Which is why the score against UNLV was lower than anticipated - ground pounding. Same with the RBs.
Same also with Butt. We know Butt works, lets develop the other options for when Butt is draped with defenders moving forward.

In Endzone, JUB describes the actual usage behind "This is Michigan" as an admonishment for something not done to Michigan standards.
You don't want them to say: " Come on WD. You're dressed like that? This is Michigan!"

-- sorry, upper-middle-class-but-can't-make-200K-in-San-Francisco-people's -- fault?
I am not a fan of the blaming logic in this thread.
There are a number of real reasons:
1) Noon games are early, 3:30 is better
2) Students don't take to assigned seats well, the upper rows suck, and so they pack down in with their friends
3) This was not Notre Dame, Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin, Nebraska, etc. It was a should win comfortably game. As glorious as the 2nd half was, it wasn't competitive and assured of a win, there are better things to do
4) The non-student sections are not full and leave early as well. It is just not as noticeable because people tend to sit in their assigned seats.
5) This is a problem in all of college football, not just at Michigan.
FWIW - I think the best way to fix the upper bowl problem in that corner is to go back to the John U Bacon childhood days, and 10 minutes after kick off, give those seats away to local youth groups (or re-sell them for $5 a seat).
|45 weeks 14 hours ago||The Ole' Miss game is sold out||
Alabama does have a student action card ticket exchange. If you know you won't be attending a game, you can turn your ticket in, and another student on the waitlist can get your ticket for free. May help fill things in.
However, Michigan's big (marquee - everyone happy?) games fill out too.
|45 weeks 16 hours ago||Ok, but I can tell you||
that Alabama has a significantly lower international student population percentage, and much more recent success, and they are suffering from the same malaise.
I don't think that is the problem, especially since I doubt disinterested international students would purchase season tickets anyway.
|45 weeks 17 hours ago||I wasn't discriminating against Marquis||
I was suggesting there is discrimination against non-marquis ... i.e., the games of lower quality that are, shall we say, ignoble.
That said, perhaps marquee may be the correct use. However, I don't recall a large tent over the Big House. But then again, that would make it a non-marquee event now wouldn't it? I just don't recall a big tent over the stadium for The Game, or UTL I & II, or even for State. Thus all football games at Michigan Stadium would be non-marquee.
|45 weeks 17 hours ago||Quit yer bitchin'||
From my perspective on the couch, the crowd was awesome and energized for the quality of opponent.
My son texted me a picture - he was attending his first game as a freshman at Bama - and the student section there was empty behind him. Of course they played Middle Tennessee State, but still it was a first home game on a beautiful 80 degree day: perfect football weather.
My point is: a) I think the problem is common for non-marquis games, and b) I thought our crowd over performed as it was anyway.
Keep it up students. You proved last year that your hearts and minds are in the right place, and were willing to stand behind it. Go Blue!
