This might be slightly offtopic but how is it possible that ESPN doesn't have commercials on watchESPN other than a government recycling promo? How can they not have monetized streaming?
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Well in the press conference||
Well in the press conference Hackett said it would be based on market conditions. Sounds like they're going to give him more money and how much more depends on what it takes to keep him in the top echelon of coaches.

Just a few shoutouts to family and other coaches. A few jokes. And a Bo anecdote. The fox Detroit stream on YouTube is great FYI and he is answering questions now.

Harbaugh knows how to handle the press. That's been a partial downfall for more than one coach around here.

What did he do a good job of? Name a few significant achievements of the Brandon era that were his doing (not underway prior to his hiring)

They showed a video of you celebrating after the touchdown? I must have missed it...
|15 weeks 2 days ago||Schlissel is an||
Schlissel is an administrator, and he is approaching this situation from that perspective. He should.
The new athletic director can't simply be an empty husk that fires Hoke, he needs to be someone who can run a department with a few dozen sports, a $140 million budget, billions in facilities, plus handle the fundraising, media and business side of it. The new AD also needs to be widely accepted by the community, boosters, reagents, politicians, academians, athletes, students, etc. He needs to bring people together which obviously was Brandon's big failing.
Schlissel simply can't afford to hire a guy based solely on football. That also doesn't mean there isn't a football solution in the near term. Maybe Hackett fires Hoke. Maybe the new hire does it. Schlissel might go from "doing my homework" to "hired a guy" in a pretty short period of time. I think these things often snowball and move suddenly.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Well pending any offseason||
Well pending any offseason chaos next season we should have even more talent than this season, and this season there's a lot of talent.
Which is why the results are so frustrating. Rich Rod had some bad years where multiple positions didn't have a single guy that should make a two-deep at Indiana. I could at least sort of understand those years... This team should actually be pretty good. Fucking that up is why this coaching staff is as good as gone.

Morris is what everyone was screaming for
|21 weeks 2 days ago||What was idiotic was starting||
What was idiotic was starting him in the first place. I'd like to know what was beind that decision. Is Hoke saying that Gardner is a hopeless case and they might as well abandon the rest of the season to get Morris some experience? Surely they didn't think Morris could be better than Gardner.
I guess an alternate theory is that they were trying to give Gardner a wakeup call. But all in all, it makes almost no sense.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||They're saying he stumbled||
They're saying he stumbled because his ankle was in a lot of pain, and it follows from that that he might have needed to come out due to the ankle.
At this point it hardly matters, the media including Brian and Ace have their pitchforks and are happy to play this up to any extent to get the new coach they've been hoping for. And Hoke and the University are going to be as oblique as possible since there isn't any benefit to addressing "concerns" that aren't really concerns.
We may as well all check back in a few weeks from now for some actual content...

90% of this is just a pile on...people we're rooting for Hoke to be fired last game and now they hope this could force the issue if they make it dramatic enough.
|48 weeks 6 days ago||So doing tomorrow's draft is||
So doing tomorrow's draft is going to be killer. It's going to be almost midnight before the last game ends and we get entered in the day 2 draft.
I assume the draft values for tomorrow's games are fixed already. I see tournaments available to register for just that day.
Is there any way to get the spreadsheet for a tournament to look over before joining it? It would be nice if I could get working on my plans for Sunday games on Saturday.
I guess I could enter a $2 daily for the next day but if there's an easier way that would be great.
|49 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks. Very helpful, looks||
Thanks. Very helpful, looks like it should be fun. Hopefully I get lucky with my simplistic method of drafting!
|49 weeks 1 day ago||Man. I just spent quite a||
Man. I just spent quite a while rating players on the assumption that you pick a team and that's that for the 4 days. It does explain why teams likely to lose have players with such high salary values.
Where are these kinds of rules specific to a tournament posted? (EDIT - I guess it's implied in that the half moving on are automatically entered into a new tournament each day. Just didn't make sense initially).
The general rules help but they leave some gaps. For example how does the Utility position work? Does that just mean you can pick any position to fill that roster slot?
|49 weeks 1 day ago||Does anyone know from past||
Does anyone know from past experience if there is a way to watch replays of March Madness games? I have a conflict for Thursday and will probably miss the first half of our game or more.
Never tried this in past years so I'm not sure what the situation is. It didn't look like the March Madness Live site had any kind of replay feature. Do the games end up on torrent sites or anything?

Does the double bonus carry over to overtime? I'm assuming so?

It's why I don't read those threads normally. Got bored at halftime today and man, what a cesspool around here.

Touching the rim is goaltending. Stauskas was raked before the tie up by another guy.

Michigan decided if they're going to miss jump shots to go for slams and lay ups. I like it.

What's ridiculous is that it's true and kind of reasonable to say that! Thankfully next year we can finally recognize one team per year.

So your complaint is that OSCR provided you with due process?
