even if they said it was just "Oregon Yellow".

does that make him the
|1 day 20 hours ago||I agree re: "Value over Replacement Player"||
I think of it as a "Premium for Elite Winning Program Maintenance" or "Don't Screw It Up Premium".
Minor leagues work in other sports, but they don't draw the crowds or TV audiences that college or big league teams draw.
Part of the solution would be to give the players their choice by letting them go to the NFL or NFL D-league as early as they want. (Or maybe one-and-done.)
That said, the same logic for a Brady Hoke/Urban Meyer/Mark Dantonio versus one of the local DIII coaches should apply to Devin Gardner over Nick Sheridan. As we've seen most ticket holders aren't going to be happy paying over $100/ticket to watch their team lose. Premium talent supports that price-gouging. The premium for Devin is certainly more than just a football player's time-commitment adjusted education.
I highly doubt that Devin Gardner generates a marginal $5.5 million, but I think his contributions should be evaluated in light of Brady Hoke's ~$4 million salary.

Jerry Palm's Projections
|3 days 19 hours ago||We are a light year away from a B1G title.||
Which according to my calculations, takes 365 days.
|3 days 19 hours ago||I bet they jump to 4th tomorrow||
Had they been undefeated, they would have been no lower than 5th (undefeated below a disrespected Mizzou?) and would have jumped to 2nd with the victory over OSU.
|3 days 19 hours ago||Agreed||

|3 days 20 hours ago||We need to send an assistant coach around to the high schools||
|3 days 20 hours ago||Great call by Dantonio on that halfback pass||
|3 days 20 hours ago||Exactly||
There's no logic in saying we don't "develop" our underclassmen.
Maybe we should have an assistant coach travel around the high schools to coach up our likely recruits.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Yeah, he's gonna hate it when we win the B1G next year||
Nothing to complain about.

|3 days 20 hours ago||OK, I will||
I'm not the least bit affected by your feelings of jealousy.
|3 days 21 hours ago||The announcer said it on National TV||
This isn't something manufactured by an MGoBlog poster.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Auburn beat defending national champion Alabama||
Auburn clearly deserves it.
If FSU had blown it, I think Sparty had an argument over an Auburn-Alabama do-over. Not as the better team than Alabama, but as the team that hadn't blown its chance against Auburn.
|3 days 21 hours ago||You mean Little Brother won the Big Ten||
Just ask Gus Johnson.
|3 days 21 hours ago||What a game!||
MSU knocks OSU out of the national championship game and gets called Little Brother by the announcer.
Best possible outcome given the meteor mailed it in.
Go Little Brother!!!
|3 days 21 hours ago||Little Brother!!!||
It looked to me like Braxton was going to make it, but Little Brother says no!
|3 days 21 hours ago||I changed my mind||
These announcers are awesome
paying dividends for "Little Brother". Ha
|3 days 22 hours ago||It looked like the Tight End was wide open for a TD||
down the field.
Instead, Cook throws a pick over the middle.
|3 days 22 hours ago||Seriously, with a Sparty blowout,||
the Okie St loss, Auburn beating Mizzou, and a Duke upset over FSU would have given Sparty a strong arument for a National Championship game spot.
Sparty could have made the argument that we'd already seen the Auburn-Bama game, so let's not give Bama a do-over against the team that just beat them when there is a plausible alternative.
FSU-Duke was 0-0 at the end of the 1st qtr, and only 7-0 when MSU was up 17 on OSU, but FSU at half leads 17-0.
Sparty almost got the 7-10 split to happen, but FSU seems to be closing any longshot prayer.
Now leading only 17-10, Sparty is in a fight just to win the game.
|3 days 23 hours ago||Damn. If MSU runs on 3rd & 10 w/ ~1:40 to go||
instead of throwing an incompletion, they punt with 56 seconds to go instead of 1:36, and OSU gets the ball with 43 seconds left in the half and no timeouts instead of 1:23.
Poor clock mgmt cost Sparty that Buckeye FG.

|4 days 20 hours ago||Jim Tressell presided over signing day in Feb 2011||
and Urban Meyer was able to spend 100% of his time recruiting from the date of his hire on Nov 28, 2011 until the Feb 2012 signing date.
Ohio State never had a recruiting pipeline / cupboard problem. They had a Luke Fickell as head coach for ~six months problem.
That's a much, much different situation than the back-to-back 2010-2011 recruiting dearth that Hoke inherited.
The impact of that recruiting hole reached its peak this year. Hoke's first real class (2012) will be redshirt sophomores / true juniors next year, and we'll certainly get some productivity out of the 2013 four-star bonanza. Enough to start to cover for the recruiting hole. By 2015, the recruiting hole will be in the rear-view mirror.Watch next year how that problem starts to fade next year will be largely in the rearview mirror in 2015. (When 2011 true freshman contributors would be gone anyway.)
|6 days 1 hour ago||Why is Central Florida not playing and why is Cincy||
the team that lost 45-17 to Illinois, even playing? I thought that the season-ending-mercy-rule was applied to teams losing by 28 to Illinois.
