to play football, not to play trumpet

Bo was good friends with Bobby Knight, so I guess it's fitting.

Both teams in the bonus halfway through the second half and all of the sudden I hate basketball again.

Their attendance numbers aren't terrible. It may look worse due to not filling a bigger arena. If they're not making money, they certainly aren't wasting as much as the most of their other sports, of which they have many. OSU fields the most varsity teams in the nation. So that might answer the "Why?" question. Hint: It's the same reason for saying "THE Ohio State University."

1) You have the order wrong. It went Beck --> Kelly --> Martin. Beck hasn't coached since 92.
2) GVSU is 1-3 this year and Mitchell's teams have been nowhere near as impressive as Kelly's and Martin's.

I didn't like it, but I can kind of understand why some people did.
I can actually summarize my thoughts with a football analogy. Every September we seem to hear, "If you have two quarterbacks, you have no quarterback." Ted ending up with both of them just felt too messy and it cheapened both relationships to me.

A touch of hyperbole, sure. And I'm not saying they're not excellent players. But you can't reasonably expect a 32% shooting team to just go out and do that.

I don't think Kentucky could go 7/11 from 3 in shootaround. Still, I loved watching this team and it was an amazing season.

Come on, why is it so hard to let people hold on to the irrational belief that Earth reaching an arbitrary point on its revolution around the Sun has some sort of impact on the outcome of Michigan sporting events?

I'd like to know what was going on inside his head when he met Funchess. Actually it was probably just something like this...

I enjoy listening Mike Valenti 90% of the time. Terry Foster is the real problem with that show.

Once I read "3 downs instead of 4 or having to go 15 yards for a first down instead of 10" in the first e-mail I fully expected to see a "/s" at the end.

Biggest play of the year and that's what they come up with? A play that had limited options and didn't create any mismatches or try to get the defense out of position. It was just lazy.

Absulote right call. Play call was awful though. Can somebody track the success of that bunch formation? I swear it never works.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||My guess on the source of such rumors||
I've seen this happen. There's a certain breed of man that starts this. I would call it the High School Football Creeper. All towns have them and they are easy to spot when a star prospect comes on the scene. They have no affiliation or favorite team. They all look the same: baseball cap, sunglasses, goatee, hoodie under a windbreaker and pale jeans; age 45-60. They're generally friendly until you start talking to them and you realize they are insane. They think they know everything about football so they try to be a part of the process so they can feel important. And they are telling anybody who will listen, "I don't why he would go to Michigan when they're gonna fire that coach of theirs."

You should know better than thinking the NCAA would be that reasonable.
|2 years 21 weeks ago||The NCAA makes no distinction||
The NCAA makes no distinction between paid vs. unpaid. Volunteers who give instruction are considered coaches. Yes, in the grand scheme of things it's not big deal. If it is a secondary violation I imagine compliance has already reported it to the NCAA and nothing will come of it, but you still don't want to make it a habit.

22.214.171.124.1 Countable Coach. An athletics department staff member must count against coaching limits as soon as the individual participates (in any manner) in the coaching of the intercollegiate team in practice, games or organized activities directly related to that sport, including any organized staff activity directly related to the sport.
126.96.36.199.1.4 Use of Outside Consultants. An institution may use or arrange for a temporary consultant to provide in-service training for the coaching staff, but no interaction with student-athletes is permitted unless the individual is counted against the applicable coaching limits. An outside consultant may not be involved in any on- or off-field or on- or off-court coaching activities

Dave Brandon is an evil genius. Make the "get off my lawn crowd" shut up and fork over some cash. Well played, Dave. Well played.

Loved the play call. Bait NW into running a dive and throw more linebackers in there than they can block. Demens with a beautiful finish as well.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Van Dort||
I didn't see him as much this past year, but did his freshman year and I was very impressed, mostly from watching him play basketball. I've never seen somebody that big, not to mention young, have such good hands, feet and the smarts to go with it. I doubt the height and weight unless he's really grown and slimmed down since the state chanpionship game. 6-5, 290 seems more realistic to me. He's very skilled, but I don't think he's fast enough to stay at TE. Should be fun to watch him develop more.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||Everbody has different tastes||
Everbody has different tastes so nobody will ever be completely satisfied. It really is a no-win job. I try to just accept it, HOWEVA, I get sick of the cliches. If I wanted to hear "don't stop believin" and "sweet caroline" I would go to a bar.
My biggest gripe is timing. I will never forget losing and hearing "Apache." Why in the hell would I want to "jump on it, jump on it." when we are LOSING?

They need a pronunciation guide. Better yet, audio of Gus Johnson saying them.

Normally saying a high schooler is NFL ready is complete insanity, but Adam Schefter tweeted a couple weeks ago an NFL GM told him they would draft Clowney right now.
