"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

|18 hours 20 min ago||Almost lost to us?||
by a score of 42-28? They lost by 2 TDs and OSU offense just had their way against Michigan defense all game long.
|18 hours 25 min ago||NIke shoes||
just fall apart and has shorter shelf life than Adidas shoes. Nike isn't that much better than Adidas when it comes to shoes.
|21 hours 47 min ago||Michigan beating OSU||
is unlikely considering OSU is the #1 team in the country to begin the season and returns just about everybody from their NC title team.
|21 hours 51 min ago||Adidas Shoes > Nike Shoes||
in terms of durability and comfort level.
D-Rose's injuries are a result of his style of play in which he uses a ton of jump cut and ton of explosiveness moves made by human that shouldn't have any business of doing it in a game.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Most of it were helped by||
Most of it were helped by Steph Curry and his ability to draw defensive attention. Kerr has made the offense 10x better this season

|1 day 20 hours ago||The Bulls need to find||
a coach who knows how to run offense. The Warriors made an unpopular decision when they fired Mark Jackson, but they made a great hire in Steve Kerr who knows how to leverage Curry into an offensive power while still maintaining a great defensive team.
|1 day 23 hours ago||To me,||
it's the Warriors in 5. They simply have too much depth and shooting for the Cavs to overcome. The Warriors are #1 in both offensive and defensive efficiency.
The Cavs will try to hyper trap Curry, but Curry is too good of a ball handler and shooter to get taken out of the game. Beside, Steph basically destroy any defensive gameplan any team put out no matter how good it is because Steph is a damn good shooter.
The Cavs has the best player, but the Dubs have the next 7 best players IMO.
LeBron basically carried the team with a bunch of players that are replacement level (except a motivated JR Smith).
|2 days 15 hours ago||Maryland, yes||
Rutgers, maybe but defense couldn't stop Nova. Utah, no. Utah fields a top 25 defense and is a top 25 team. So 1-1 for sure IMO and 1 is a toss up (Rutgers)
|3 days 57 min ago||Finally a perfectly valid||
and logical post by someone who hates Adidas. Bravo.
That is exactly why fans shouldn't dismiss the extra $4 million like it's nothing (some would say it can be made up with donors/boosters, but you can't rely on them every year).
|3 days 10 hours ago||ND got a bigger contract offer from UA||
than Adidas. Adidas can't increase the offer because they would have to then increase the money for Michigan because it stipulate that Michigan will be the highest paid school no matter what.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Michigan wore Russell||
when Fab Five arrived to help prove your point......
|3 days 10 hours ago||Michigan is already #3 in apparel sale||
and it doesn't make a dent into the overall athletic department revenue. It makes up for a very tiny part of the revenue pie.
Apparel sales will and should be the last thing they should consider.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Not every athletic department||
get a massive contract offer from Adidas.
|3 days 12 hours ago||MSU has more NFL talent||
than Michigan in recent years. MSU is winning because they're a more talented team than Michigan.
Look at recent MSU NFL draftees:
Trae Waynes CB - 1st round
Jeremy Langford RB - 4th round
Tony Lippett WR/CB - 5th round
Keith Mumphrey WR - 5th round
Darqueze Dennard CB - 1st round
Le'Veon Bell RB - 2nd round
Dion Sims TE - 4th round
Will Gholston DE - 4th round
Jerel Worthy DT - 2nd round
Kirk Cousins QB - 4th round
Keshawn Martin WR/KR/PR - 4th round
Trenton Robinson S - 6th round
BJ Cunningham WR - 6th round
Edwin Baker RB - 7th round
Greg Jones LB - 6th round
There's several MSU players before then got drafted. That's not counting Conor Cook who is a day 1/2 pick, Jack Conklin who is likely a top 15 pick, Jack Allen who is one of the top C in the draft, Shilque Calhoun who is considerd to be a day 2/3 pick, Lawrence Thomas who is considered a day 2/3 pick.
Compared to Michigan who had 8 players drafted in the same period as MSU listed above. MSU is a more talented team than Michigan and it shows on the field.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Yup||
if Blake has any NFL aspiration which he does, he needs to transfer for the interest of himself. Why stabotage your stock when you won't see time on the field or doesn't fit the system? He went where he felt where he can maximize his NFL draft stock. I don't blame him one bit.
Saying he should stay for the team is the dumbest statement because you need to look for yourself at some point. I bet, LA guy would feel differently if he's the athlete, not a fan.
|4 days 17 hours ago||He knows football, he's just||
He knows football, he's just not good at evaluating players/prospects. Two different skill sets.

|4 days 19 hours ago||They sure gave B1G a lot of love||
considering B1G is considered to be a mid-major conference in baseball. Pretty impressive.
|4 days 21 hours ago||Rudock||
isn't the type of QB who can carry the team. Peppers is really good, but one player isn't enough to elevate the defense as whole.
MSU and OSU are still head and shoulders above Michigan.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Considering the current contract||
it's not really out of whack.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Nike did the highlighter maize before||
|6 days 13 hours ago||They get a certain percentage of sale||
but it's a very small percentage and the sales/merchandising revenue don't make a dent to the overall athletic department revenue. In other words, it's nearly impossible to recoup the $4 million difference by going with Nike.
|6 days 13 hours ago||That is without context||
of how much they're being offered by other apparel company. If it's the same money, then Nike is a no brainer.
|6 days 13 hours ago||That doesn't cover the $4 million||
difference anyway even with the cut from a massive Licensing contract.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Even if it's not true,||
it should spark a dicussion on if it's worth foregoing milions of dollars just to sign with Nike. Saying $4 million is nothing like some have said is naive (not saying it's you but you know who I'm talking about).
|6 days 15 hours ago||Licensing has nothing to do with||
apparel sales. It's more about the brand M trademark than apparel. You're confusing the two of them.
|6 days 15 hours ago||$4 million more||
is still a significant amount of money. Not like it's $4,000 more. The athletic department need to make as much money as much as possible in order to finance everything they're paying for like scholarships, faciltiies upgrades/maintaining, sports, etc. The less money they have to worry, the better for the athletic department.
|6 days 16 hours ago||^^^^||
Exactly this. Michigan Athletics gets little or none of the endowment pie from the University since they are separated from the University's budget.
Before Bill Martin took over, Michigan Athletics was in the red despite the fact that University get a shit load of endowment every year.
|6 days 16 hours ago||People forget that Nike started the highlighter yellow||
trend at the end of LC's coaching tenure. It's not like Adidas all of the sudden did it.
|6 days 16 hours ago||That won't happen||
even if Michigan is #1 in apparel sales. You can't make up this much money in apparel sales and it has to be from somewhere else. People think you can make up the deficit in apparel sales, but that is a very, very tiny part of the revenue which is in the hundreds of thousands, not millions.
|6 days 17 hours ago||Actually they do||
They need every cent they can possibly get to cover the finance of running the sports, paying the administrators, facilities upgrades/maintaning, etc. Saying they don't need it is ridiculous.
