It was. Better luck guessing next time.

It's been reported that Michigan countered with a "competitive package", so doesn't sound like it was money. Even though they both went to Iowa, they didn't overlap so not clear there would be some sort of allegiance there. Must have felt it was a better opportunity for him. With both Hoke and Mattison as DL coaches it's always possible he felt like he didn't have complete autonomy, too, but that's speculation on my part.

As involved as Hoke is with the DL (and even Mattison), they still need a position coach who can spend more time with the DL. Hoke and Mattison have other responsibilities, too. Or, per Sam Webb, find an OLB coach so Mattison can spend more time with the DL.

This isn't slamming you, but there have been good analyses posted recently showing that the recruiting services seem to be predictive of success at both the college and NFL level. So while, you're right, that many highly-recruited kids won't pan out, the odds of a 5-star panning out are considerably higher than a 4-star player, and they're much more likely to pan out than a 3-star player.

And while we're on the topic, why would this work for State, but no other school with a strong basketball program?

You find me a quote from a single football-only recruit saying that they went to State in (any) part because of the basketball program, and I'll consider believing this.
That said, there seem to be more things pointing in the opposite direction. Take Drake Harris, for example. Here's a kid who clearly loves basketball and wanted to go to State to play both sports, and the instant he decides he's going to focus on football, State starts looking less attractive and the football powerhouse schools start looking a lot more interesting. Based on your suggestion, wouldn't he be the kind of guy who would still want to be at State because of their strong basketball program?

Yes, Vogrich was the nominal starter for the first few games of the year, but starting with the second game he was already playing significantly fewer minutes than Stauskas.
Also, Burke played significant minutes his very first game as a freshman, and started beginning with the second game.

This post seems ill-timed. Maybe you missed Derrick Green's commitment yesterday?

Finally, an explanation for why Kentucky, Kansas, UNC, Duke, Syracuse, and Temple, have such strong football programs -- they clearly get their success from being the winningest basketball programs in the country!

A monopoly on College Sports in New England still isn't all that valuable. Ratings/interest are very low compared to most everywhere else in the country.

They could, but the key thing there is that they lose all their BCS/bowl tie-ins.

So you're saying there's a chance.

I don't disagree with that, but the perception that a second tier SEC team can poach a 1b tier coach from the B10 isn't great for the conference. It would be one thing if he was from Arkansas...
|24 weeks 16 hours ago||No||
The divisions only apply to football, unless at some point the other sports decide they want to pick it up, too. But, for example, B10 basketball doesn't have any divisions.

..looking at the map and struggling with the geographical inaccuracies? I get that it's not intended to replace Google Maps, but it's not even close. Purdue and Illinois are essentially in need of being swapped; I'm not sure why MSU is south of Ann Arbor; Rutgers is actually south of State College, not North; and Nebraska is nearly due West of Iowa, not South.
|24 weeks 21 hours ago||So...||
...what does that have to do with football divisions?
|24 weeks 2 days ago||But your argument means||
...that playing for your conference championship means nothing. Sure, Georgia finds themselves behind Florida for playing an extra game, but they also had a chance to win the SEC championship, which Florida did not. That, and, at least according to the computers, Georgia should have been behind Florida in the BCS standings before this week, anyway.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Not sure that makes sense||
In no other sport does already having played each other in the regular season mean you don't need to play each other again in the playoffs, why should it be that way here?
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Not really sure how that's the case||
For one, if you're donating several thousand dollars a year, and been paying for season tickets, you should have more than enough points to get what you need from them. With relatively few points (initially), I was able to get season tickets, and have twice moved into what are essentially the best possible locations for the Preferred Seating Donation I have chosen to make.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Keep in mind||
The changes being discussed here don't take effect until February or March 2013.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Doesn't work that way||
"It wouldn't be ideal to have a ton of people jump multiple year season ticket holders in points due to this and make the hypothetical non-alum move from a better location to a worse one."
Once you have your seats, you have the right of refusal on them moving forward. In other words, someone can't bump you to a worse location. Once you have tickets, the points are only useful if you want to upgrade to a better location, and that only happens if a better location becomes available (non-renewal, or someone else moving to different seats by their own choice.)
