"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

Toss me an email and I'll help you out with the Sketch Head from the basketball game, that's my bad boy.

Yea, the pay is actually incredibly low relative to the other professional sports. Obviously MMA is younger and less mainstream, but even Rousey will only get about $2mil for that fight without sponser dollars. That seems like a ton for 14sec, but that's months of training and she's one of the sport's biggest names. Its growing fast though, and she's paving the way for a whole new boatload of female fighters. Pretty awesome to witness for a fan of the sport!

Yet another Vikes fan. I see no way he wears a new uniform next season. Whether or not he wants to play for Minnesota or not, he knows where the paychecks are coming from. The trade return isn't going to be worth the player, and I can't see this organization making a deal with Dallas specifically for anything less than a solid haul of picks.

In the non-call boat, I think it was 2010 when DeShawn Sims was hacked by State in what should have been a last second layup for the win at Crisler. I remember one of the refs got injured during the game and had to leave, so the view from behind Sims where he was being held down was just missed.

I hate this damn conference. I don't care about the ease of schedule, I want to see Michigan play their rivals home and away and I want to see them in Assembly Hall. Is it selfish that I want my school to play other schools in our conference?
|40 weeks 6 days ago||Nothing to see here||
So late in the second half when I began to be more interested in people watching than the game itself, I noticed an awkward moment between Harbaugh and Desmond. Harbaugh stopped to talk to like 5 people on his way to the tunnel, just being courteous. Then he got to the tunnel, where Des was, and uncomfortably walked past him. Des even looked up, like how I would avoid an ex in high school. Just odd. Also, Jameis wouldn't even acknowledge the kids that wanted a picture, even the oddly placed kid in a FSU hat! Comeon mannn
|41 weeks 4 days ago||Airing of Grievances||
People that think something is wrong with offense in seemingly every sports just don't like defense, and I don't like them. Sometimes, things aren't broken - so don't fix them.
Soccer is boring to me, so I don't watch it. They make a lot of money despite my decision. Baseball is exciting to me, so I watch it. If it bores you, don't. They will continue to make a lot of money, don't change my game.
Charges are the most exciting call in college basketball, and I love Ted Valentine as a ref.
I love MMA but the UFC is ruining it. What it did to this point pushed MMA into the main stream, and that's fantastic. However, they now are over-extending themselves and have too large a roster with too many events. Fighters aren't getting fights, and other organizations are dying. Reign it in for the sport.
It frustrates me that NFL money isn't guaranteed. Baseball's salary model is the best in sports. The contract matters - when it's signed, it's done. If all sports could adopt this, they'd all be better for it.
There will be another NFLPA strike soon and it will stem from how the NFL treated Adrian Peterson.

Beilein definitely plays favorites to guys who show willingness to be coached more. Normally, when they lack the starting/first off the bench talent, he molds them into defensive specialists and then let's them earn playing time from there. That's what I see MAAR as. Beilein likes him, he must show good stuff in practice, and will continue to use him defensively on a consistent basis. Hit a couple shots during that time and all of the sudden you're in, some I'm not worried about him!
|47 weeks 6 days ago||This.||
I feel like much of the hate comes from the ridiculous one-off uniforms and the yellow. Realistically, quality concerns are about the same across these 3 companies. If the AD doesn't want special unis, we don't get them. If they don't want highlighter yellow, we won't get it. Nike may have a patent on that specific shade of Maize, but they don't own every dulled shade of yellow. Basketball camps may be one legitimate argument, but that doesn't seem to cover the rest of the contract, imo.

Coach Harbaugh said good morning to me outside of Crisler just now. Best day ever!

Once he left the game he was swearing up a storm and hitting the chair next to him - with a smile, of course. Sounds silly, but it was awesome just to see him be a kid mad that he missed a couple big 3s. So proud to have him on this team for the next few years!

With Minnesota, Indiana, Nebraska, and Illinois receiving votes (in that order). Basketball conferences, man.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Football perspective||
As a Vikings fan, I have to admit I was hoping he'd fight it. Now with the plea, I expect a couple game suspension and a nice fine, but he'll be back this year. I didn't want to see that for football reasons... I don't believe he'll be back next year for $ reasons, so I see it as more valuable to grow the rookie RB and QB without AD out there. Obviously a better team with him out there, but I believe this growth by fire has been working pretty well thus far

My all time favorite, can't wait until that Friday. Hopefully Nik and Glenn do an MDen freebie too like Trey and Timmy did!

Just about everything has been said between the 2 posts, but there's one more thing that really pissed me off about how it was handled. I was at the end of the preline, and ran back and forth between the 2 a few times much to my amusement (I was drunk, so what wanna fight about it?). When el presidente decided to make the 2nd line, she had the maize rage 'core' walk about 100 feet away from her, then she announced her line just began, and then the glob walked up behind her. Outside of her claiming she was going to give the people in the other line 'fake' numbers to trick them into thinking they would get a good spot in line, it was the most dick thing she could have done. The core made a mess, and the athletic department cleaned it up.

Wow, never even considered this before you pointed it out. I'm a 3rd year ticket holder and that's an excellent point, every game so far this season I've been jammed into a row (not a big deal at all fwiw) and looking back at my first 2 years, I never experienced that. It would make the section look a lot better if it wasnt so compacted

I'd like to say that as a student...most students I know dont complain as much as the ones here (alright I'll just say it, they arent as bitchey). Of course being in that line isnt as fun as pregaming like before, but its not like you are just sitting looking at the floor. There's free food, phone charging stations, water and toilets. Theres a big ass tv to watch the early games and obviously you can bring in drinks (ooohh ahhhhh) and other stuff like that to make the time go by! Shit there's other humans too, talk to em. I got there around 10am and that time flew pretty quick.
