Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

on 1914, the other 40% didn't graduate HS. Also, the utility of teaching Latin to all HS students is dubious at best.

IDK man, 7-6 might just do it. Think about it- that's either 6-6 and a win in a crappy bowl or 7-5 with a loss in a slightly-better-than-crappy bowl.
The schedule this year looks pretty tough b/c the big 3 are all on the road- but realize that M skips Wisco, Iowa AND Neb from the West division this year. The home schedule is infamously turrible.
M should have a floor of 9-3 this year. 8-4 is worst case scenario.

And tell him it's gonna cost him double. And tell him this thing is beautiful. And tell him I'm being a nice guy. And tell him he dresses like a gigolo. Yeah. No! Tell him--tell Brian that having a sexy female assistant is such. A terrible. Cliche.

they make these for most states, i'd imagine. Non-liscenced state specific for several universities. Quality isn't great, IMO

I used to think this too, but upon actually thinking about it, changed my mind

blues bros. has been going on since at least the late 90s- not quite as organized, but they'd always play it during one of the intermissions. At some point in 97ish or so, superfan (without his costume, just a fuzzy water buffalo hat at most) would start dancing a la Jake Blues in the movie. eventually, it became a thing and the half the students would join in.
not sure what the hat throwing thing was

re: "Embracing debate" is tolerating all sorts of things you shouldn't.
the same thing happens when people want to "debate" evolution or "debate" global climate change. It's bullshit to consider both sides b/c there is only one side: the fucking truth. This is why most scientists turn down formal debates - it legitimizes the bullshit by just being on the same stage. Many people didn't think Bill Nye should have debated that nut job a few months ago.

the equivalent of a MLB season? so 1.5-2 minor league years?
|1 week 2 days ago||of course a few guys who||
of course a few guys who could have signed decent minor league developmental contracts go on to play NCAA baseball, but generally that's b/c they value the educational opportunities- which is why it's such a good fit. the purpose of NCAA baseball (and every other sport besides the Big 3) is not 1st and foremost professional development and generally speaking the kids who choose NCAA over available alternatives (CND Major Jr, MLS, mLB) understand that.
|1 week 2 days ago||and almost all of those guys||
and almost all of those guys spent a significant amount of time in the minors before they made it to MLB. that's the point.
|1 week 2 days ago||What is the purpose for your||
What is the purpose for your proposal, in 1-2 sentences? B/c it reads as, "to have NCAA D-I soccer become a pro-development league on par w/ MLS or Euro-academies."
I don't think the NCAA is interested at all in structuring sports for the sole purpose of becoming top developmental leagues for world class atheltics. Basketball and football turned into developmental leagues by circumstance, not design ... and hockey- hell IDK how to explain that.
I think NCAA soccer 'remaining' relevant is a moot point- it's completely irrelevant now on a global skill level at least. It's like NCAA baseball- sure, a few guys can make a jump to MLB, but that's like once in a decade kind of circumstances. NCAA baseball is not a relevant league on a global skill level - but it fills it's niche by taking hard working, well skilled if undersized kids and late bloomer-type kids who want to use what baseball skills they have to gain opportunities ouside of (playing) sports. Sure some very talented kids play in the South/West but primarily mLB developes them, not NCAA. One could argue that it's the same in hockey, but to a lesser extent (more guys go right to the NHL from NCAA, but most still take a year or 2 to develop in the AHL, etc).
The bottom line is, the NCAA doesn't see itself as a pro-developmental sports league (in spite of basketball and football becoming the defacto- developmental leagues). I would say it is right in doing so.

I don't think they're going to be able to control the environmental conditions for the ice inside the arena if they build it split In half like that

I'm of the opinion that Urban's pitch here will only sell to kids whom they already have in the bag.
To a kid who wants to hear about OSU b/c he isn't sold yet, 20-30mins of Michigan talk is not going to be all that impressive.

I was curious about that too, and you know, there's a "best of both worlds" scenario where they open it to the public, but send coupons for free food and drinks to the season ticket holders.

eh, I wouldn't spend 1-2k for the privilege of getting batteries thrown at you and grandmothers flipping you off. Not to mention the really obnoxious loudmouth fans that hit the tailgate too hard. plus, M will likely be an 7-10pt dog.
IDK, live sporting events are just not my thing anymore. these days, the prices as so high people think they are entitled to do and yell anything they want in the stands and it grinds my gears. It's a liscence to get drink in public and be an asshole. No shame in people anymore. get off my lawn.
