As long as the SEC praise is limited to softball it won't bother me.
|1 hour 57 min ago||Let's also remember the families||
of those who gave their lives. Our soldiers' sacrfice and bravery has been shared by those left behind.
|17 hours 1 min ago||Of course.||
That's what Beilein has done with most, if not all, of his late offers.
|18 hours 3 min ago||Oh come on.||
His family still ives in Flint and he's not in school year round.
Beilein knows what he's doing. I like that he has consistent and clear policies. He also doesn't offer until receiving satisfactory transcripts.

|20 hours 39 min ago||Going undefeated in a double elimination||
tournament is always sweet. Good luck to them in Omaha!
* not quite a pure double elimination format, I know

That number isn't all from Adidas. They have been paying $3,8M plus providing equipment.
I've seen lots of people here and elsewhere throwing out numbers about additional sales under Nike. I feel like those numbers have all just been plucked out of thin air. Does anyone even know if we get a cut of sales or just a guarantee? If so, what kind of numbers? All the articles I've seen only mentioned guaranteed money in the contracts for Michigan and other schools.

What did you expect from him? Harbaugh very nearly hired his S&C coach away from him. He might not be happy about Lyons either. That hardly makes him representative of his former assistants.
|2 days 18 hours ago||That's not a question we have to answer.||
Let's just see how Rudock and Beathard look this year. Unless Beathard looks clearly better, it's a good question for Kirk Ferentz.
|2 days 21 hours ago||I think that if UNC's offers that technical defense||
they're in very deep trouble. The NCAA is well aware of those numbers. They're a reason they gave for not pursuing the case the first time around.
Let's consider some hypotheticals. The class was created to give athletes an easy A. The AD steered struggling athletes to the class. The AD or administration knew it was a sham class.
50% of the students in the sham class were not athletes. Was that always the case? If it started out entirely athletes, then expanded, that's a lot worse than if it was always an even mix. This should be easy to prove one way or another.
I'm not sure of the significance of the 50% figure. What if it were 90%? What would be a representative number? Were athletes given preferential treatment in getting into the class?

This offense seems unstoppable, it's a lot of fun to watch. But softball is still a sport where pitchers can dominate. and they're going to have to win a couple of low scoring games.
|3 days 2 hours ago||The need some feel to vent on a public forum||
is one of those things I just don't understand. Probably never will.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Caring about the fairness of the scorekeeping||
in some random school's spring game? There's probably a word for that, but my vocabulary is inadequate.
|4 days 18 hours ago||A last ditch offer to beat out the Sabres?||
They were reportedlly offering quite a bit more than the Wings too.
|5 days 2 hours ago||Doesn't the NBA prevent teams from trading their||
first round picks away in consecutive years? Other than that, I'd say your proposed trade is a no-brainer for Detroit. Maybe the 2016 and 2018 picks.
|5 days 13 hours ago||I'm not sure what system would be better.||
|5 days 22 hours ago||His guardian played for Purdue.||
Also he wants to play PF, his likely NBA position. There's no question that's where he fits in at Purdue, next to an NBA talent level center.
|5 days 23 hours ago||Countess didn't start every game last season||
and got moved back and forth between corner and nickel. Even if he did start this season, he would playing a system that doesn't suit him best.
|6 days 12 hours ago||It's an interesting question.||
Obviously, how many of his credits admissions will accept is an issue. I suppose it shouldn't matter whether he's academically eligible while he's sitting out, but I don't know if that's the rule.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Where did you get that Beilein tried to keep||
Max from tranferring within the Big Ten? Why are you assuming the worst about Beilein? He hasn't done enough to earn your respect? Just terrible. Didn't Jake Rudock just win the exact same appeal even though Iowa had no objections to his coming here?
My opinion is the transfer is very good for Max and Beilein knows it. He's got a lot of depth and wants his young players to develop. It's not fair to sit Max if he's a little better than Donnal and Wilson. But if you expect Donnal and Wilson to surpass Max if they get more minutes, it's better for the team to play them early in the season. You can disagree with that opinion of their potential, but Beilein has to make decisions based on what he expects from his roster. He's seen a lot more that we have.
|6 days 23 hours ago||That's a good list. Two more things stand out;||
UTL and finally paying competitve salaries to assistant coaches.
|1 week 23 hours ago||California has an exceptionally good JUCO system.||
They offer classes that are accepted by a lot of good schools, including Michigan. Moncrief went to a JUCO in Mississippi. It's a night and day difference.
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm skeptical about Moncrief getting past admissions.||
He was a JUCO before going to Auburn.
|1 week 1 day ago||Just want to point out that you||
don't know what you're talking about. And the devotion to Nike is clear proof of it.
You can't see the foolishness of claiming that a group doesn't understand why the brand matters because they're too brand loyal? It's an epically bad argument.
|1 week 1 day ago||not any more||
Times have changed. Coordinators are even getting 3 year deals.
|1 week 1 day ago||His unusual contract situation,||
that this was a step down from his last NFL job and Harbaugh hired two qualified WR coaches that look like possible successors. I don't think anyone knows if he's just here for one season, but he looks to be the most likely member of the staff to move on soon.
At the least, he'll be due a substantial raise next year when Jacksonville stops paying him.
|1 week 2 days ago||It's at least as much about quality of life as it is longevity.||
|1 week 2 days ago||Good to hear about Cissoko.||
Last I knew, he wasn't headed towards freedom, Trenton or otherwise.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yes, he's replacing players who are transferring out||
and spots that weren't filled in the 2015 class..
|1 week 2 days ago||Taking grad transfers says nothing to me about the||
importance of this season..I think he would do that if he could every season if only to add needed depth. With scholarships to spare, it only makes sense.
Bringing in non-grad transfers of course does nothing for the coming season. So far he's only brought in O'Korn who plugs a glaring hole on the depth chart. I expect him to be very selective with regular transfers.
