|1 hour 58 min ago||Is that the ESPNU preview or the ESPN?||
ESPNU is the ESPN The Magazine Preview
What's on now is like College Football Live's Preview
Confusing...just stop previewing and show me a game!
|2 hours 2 min ago||Of course ESPNEWS||
Doesn't show the scheduled B1G preview and they show the SEC instead. Awesome.
|2 hours 46 min ago||My schedule for the day...||
8am - BTN Live (BTN)
Should be a nice warmup, before a full day of football next Saturday. Not sure I'm in game shape just yet, so a half day is perfect.
|3 hours 5 min ago||WD||
Gotta go pee pee.
|3 hours 8 min ago||(No subject)||
|3 hours 11 min ago||I wonder who we'll use tomorrow?||
|3 hours 12 min ago||College Gameday is on at 11am||
And a HS game is on at noon.
I'll take all of it.
|13 hours 36 min ago||JJ Watt||
6'5 290...jus sayin
|13 hours 50 min ago||They could.||
Easily. No question...but I don't think we'd be a lock or even favored unless things fell our way in the ACC or Big XII.
|13 hours 51 min ago||That's homerism||
We're not even ranked...
If FSU or Clemson goes undefeated or 12-1 with a "quality loss", wins the conference...they still probably get the nod over us. They start higher and top to bottom the ACC is at least right now percieved as better than the B1G. We're percieved as OSU/MSU and a bunch of "meh"...they're percieved as FSU/Clemson, oh I forgot Georgia Tech, with Virginia Tech or Miami on the rise. Fair? No. But reality.
Then you could easily have TCU, USC/Oregon and the SEC Champion.
That's not far fetched at all...I don't like it, we should have 8 teams. But that's not unreasonable for anyone except Michigan fans.
|13 hours 56 min ago||He's sooooo dreeeeamy.||
He's sooooo dreeeeamy.
|13 hours 56 min ago||That's not far fetched if it's Michigan||
We start behind the pack...
SEC Champion, TCU, Oregon/USC would all be ahead of us if things went as planned.
It was be between us an the ACC champion.
|13 hours 59 min ago||But that is not what we're talking about.||
It's never been what we're talking about. There are a lot of things that fall to the football program - that's not the point Charlie Brown.
|14 hours 1 min ago||Interesting on Reese||
Is there a max number that can enroll early? Three guys can be "backdated" or whatever the term is, correct?
|14 hours 8 min ago||Whoa.||
Stafford to Tate, TD...beautiful.
|14 hours 10 min ago||Has Denard been in?||
Just cut it on (thanks for the reminder)
|14 hours 12 min ago||That sucks||
Half the fun for me on gameday is the anticipation...the rest of the day would be a letdown, win or lose if Michigan games were at 9am.
I don't want them all at night, because that would drive me crazy...but I'd like a simple formula.
Noon for easy games/cupcakes.
3:30 for big time games.
8pm for one home game and one road game each year.
|18 hours 32 min ago||DE/TE||
I think he'll be a DE/TE, he's currently the exact same size as JJ Watt, maybe an inch taller.
A nightmare off the edge and soft hands for catching TDs.
Plus Harbaugh LOVES the DE/TE combo player.
|18 hours 35 min ago||Michigan goes 11-1||
Beats MSU and OSU and goes to the B1G Championship where we win...
We're a fringe playoff team, but the B1G likely gets left out.
|18 hours 37 min ago||Harbaugh.||
|18 hours 40 min ago||So much win.||
|18 hours 41 min ago||No, they are not.||
However, I wouldn't mind seeing an all maize versus all blue Spring Game just to appease folks like you. If we ever did it any other time, I'd probably lose it.
|18 hours 42 min ago||I suppose that would be smart||
|18 hours 43 min ago||We're not talking about athletics department revenue||
What the hell, can you read? I specifically said that the last time and you went and argued the same point.
We're talking about a football budget, not revenue for an athletics department. Am I taking crazy pills?
|18 hours 45 min ago||I DO work in an athletics department, lol||
D1, Associate AD.
You really want to go there?
Resumes? Dick measuring? C'mon.
|18 hours 46 min ago||He makes a lot of sense||
He's also available right now...because for anyone else to leave their program and take over Illinois --- would be shameful.
|1 day 2 hours ago||I knew they had them||
Didn't know/care what they meant...just thought it was decoration I guess.
However, I agree...very stupid to get rid of it after you win a national championship.
|1 day 2 hours ago||I didn't say it was all about selling replicas||
I said that is a factor...one of many.
And it does make a dent in the revune of a football program - the football program doesn't get the budget of the entire athletics department (obviously).
Go look up how many football programs actually MAKE money on their own, then come back to me. If you can basically have free uniforms because you're selling them for what you paid for them...yes, that helps your budget. Many programs lose money, but help the profile of the university, increase enrollment, create sponsor opportunities, create donor opporunities for the athletics department, etc. - and that's how it's worth it and balances out. But if you just look at a programs budget, dollar for dollar, not paying for uniforms because you're making your money right back may be beneficial.
You're jaded because this is a Michigan fan site...and no, Michigan football does not need any revenue from any alternate jersey. But again, I mentioned that as one factor of a few and there were many others that I didn't mention...your response is like I said it was the sole reason (in additional to being factually incorrect).
But when you're looking up how many football programs make money, take a look at the OP where it says 80 teams in the country have alternates...not just Michigan and some of the big progams with big budgets.
|1 day 3 hours ago||What source what?||
I hope no kid has ever committed because of uniforms, what are you talking about?
There's a middle ground between "no impact" and "committment" - and I personally would say UNIFORMZ for most recruits lands in that middle ground. It's just buzz, hype, style, etc. - but it's not going to lead to a committment (as far as I know).
But did anyone say it would? I wouldn't even want a kid who committed because of uniforms, probably not the brightest star in the sky if you know what I mean.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Agreed.||
But we're getting old.
Plus, it's about money and they sell replicas like hotcakes...then they can turn around and auction their game worn jerseys or helmets to donors and make back all the money they spent on the UNIFORMZ plus some.
Add in the recruiting and buzz factor and it's just too juicy to pass up for most athletic departments.
Uniforms are expensive just on their own...so if you can just get back to net even, it's something to think about - not to mention everything else I mentioned above.
Blame the Ducks.
