I was at both games this weekend! I'm a Wings fan, but since moving to south Florida I've become an honorary Panthers fan... I'd love to see more playoff hockey down here, but honestly I see the Devils winning in six

Godspeed, coach. I have a feeling a school will make him their OC within the next year, and I'll be a fan.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks of this whenever I see Yuri Wright's name. Many many hours were spent on this game.

"How can anyone call this the Freep jihad anymore?"
Is this even a serious question? I'd recommend reading these to re-familiarize yourself with the circumstances around the original Freep article and what a load of crap it was:

Hey Coach Tress, seems like sentiment is growing that your punishment was too lenient. Are you seeing all this outrage?

If anyone didn't catch the news conference, the nitty gritty is right here: https://www.nmnathletics.com//pdf8/745702.pdf?ATCLID=205112065&SPSID=877...
That's the document OSU sent to the NCAA reporting this violation. It's frankly stunning that Tressel and the AD are still trying to cover up this mess with half-truths at a news conference when the truth is right here for all to see, from their own institution no less.
The relevent bits are at the end of pages 2 and 3. Tressel received three seperate emails nearly 8 months in advance detailing exactly what was going on and which players were involved. He pretended he was going to act on this info and then did nothing about it, acting like he wasn't allowed to report these problems because the attorney providing the info requested anonymity. In a recent follow-up interview with the OSU admin Tressel indicated he thought he should stay silent because of a criminal investigation, but it's clear from what was going on that he was grasping at straws at that point, knowing he was about to get busted (he admitted as much). Doesn't take much reading between the lines to realize he was just sitting on this info, hoping not to get caught. Let's hope the NCAA does a proper investigation, becuase if they do there's no way these puny punishments will be enough.

"I am sorry and disappointed this happened. At the time the situation occurred, I thought I was doing the right thing"
Yes, because hiding serious violations involving 5 of your best players from the NCAA is obviously the right way to go about things. I mean, all that serious language in your contract and the NCAA bylaws is just for show.
Seriously, if the NCAA doesn't bring the hammer down here.... well sadly I won't be surprised one bit. To me this is every bit as bad as the Reggie Bush situation. At least the USC admin could feign ignorance...

Thanks for the post. I'll be passing something along to you.

Brian Kelly's record vs. RR: 0-2
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Disagree. Brian's site works||
Disagree. Brian's site works because he gives us the facts. Period. Sometimes they make us happy. Right now they're making us sad. Brian gives us the most objective view of Michigan Football, in my opinion. Unlike the MSM, he isn't concerned with how much access the coach gives us or whose feelings got hurt at the presser or if the coach is a "Michigan Man" any of the other mindless blither they're usually concerned about.
If Drew Sharp actually gave facts with his opinions, people might actually read him. I say if people don't like the facts, then stop reading and head on over Drew Sharp's way. I think Brian would agree.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||I, for one, am glad||
I, for one, am glad Brian is around to temper the mostly baseless optimism surrounding Hoke. Sure, Hoke seems like a great guy and a Michigan man, and thats good. But thus far he has shown to be a mediocre coach.
Brian is an engineer. He bases his analysis off of statistics and facts. If you want a bunch of rah-rah, go read the Detroit News or the Freep or any other of the MSM outlets. As for me, I'll keep coming here for what brought me here in the first place: reasoned, rational analysis. In this instance it's mostly negative, because that's what the facts are.
The only quibble I have with Brian is that our last hire happened to be the hot name/dream hire, and that didn't work so well. Granted I think he deserved another year to prove what he was doing was working, but that's in the past now I suppose.
I support Brady Hoke and Michigan football, and will continue to do so. But it's no good running around with your head in the clouds, ignoring the data we have available to us.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Well said. Everyone was||
Well said. Everyone was saying the exact same things in 2007. Outsider taking over the program after years of stagnation, etc. Honestly I don't see a lot of parallels from 69 to our current situation. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing... let's give Brady a chance to create his own legacy.

Well luckily there is already a thread about this on this board from 2 hours ago that is 190+ comments long. That should give you a pretty good idea what everyone thinks.

This isn't really news... Texas Tech is already serving self-imposed sanctions over this. This is just the NCAA accepting their sanctions.
All this over a couple hundred texts. Sounds like its about on the same level is stretching 20 extra minutes a week.
