Tampering a product in a way that makes its ad claims fraudulent is a crime but what you describe is just Strategy. Why do you imagine it is illegal?

So be mad if he makes a 3

May the year bring immunity from your immunity problems. Feel better soon!
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||Coaches are risk averse and agents are smart||
The buyouts happen because the candidate are risk-averse: you're taking a chance when you move, and if things don't work out, you'd be worse off. So you get a better quality candidate if you offer a buyout in the contract.

Every major position here (dean, president, etc.) has been done with the aid of a recruiting agency to handle logistics, help negotiate contracts, etc

I realized I bet the pollyanna on Minny-UM that Devin Gardner would not throw an interception then forgot about it.
Technically I won that bet. Because of poor Shane, Devin did not throw any interceptions.
However, I will pay up because, you know, lemons. Money goes to Keep Growing Detroit.

I hear she's a long-time lurker here.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||That's a different question though.||
That's "when do we get a replacement," not "why can't we fire a coach as fast as other people fire THEIR coaches."
|2 weeks 2 days ago||We call my daughter the Wolverine||
Just behind her back though ;-)
If the question can be extended to Detroit-area sports in general, we named our cat Princess Tayshaun
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Just so we are clear on this||
Harvard's endowment is in the billions I think; it would not substantially change its bank balance by adding "media money" (and yes, "insane" would be the word for media money directed at public interest in Ivy football).
Did you actually READ the article? It describes the change in Harvard athletics as being driven by the school's policy to offer free rides to EVERY student with a family income less than $60,000. This is not a device to buy athletes, it is offered to every single student with that income profile.
Yeah sure money corrupts; in this case, however, the money is being used to offer all kinds of amazing students an opportunity at a debt-free education. At the "big boy" schools the football players get this kind of deal but not the future physicists, teachers, novelists, etc.
|5 weeks 1 hour ago||Because radio||
Honest to pete, even if everyone agrees the guy can't leave fast enough, how can a poor "radio journalist" cover his minutes if he doesn't fabricate a controversy?
Someone has to be the idiot on sports chat shows or there's nothing to watch/listen to.

OP didn't say Malzone was going to turn us around the minute he arrived on campus; merely implied that we would like to have him around.

Have they ever ever been ranked before in the history of the game?

Brian and Ace et all report hits ESPN Big 10 football blog updated at 7
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Well here's the thing||
It could presumably be DISproven by releasing DBs emails of that period.
|11 weeks 34 min ago||Why in the world||
Do you think Ross is such a complete idiot as to continue to support a failing director and coach because they're, like, his pals and because he said (before Shanegate) he would? Are YOU that dim well then probably he isn't either.
|11 weeks 7 hours ago||Not this||
Sorry. Fans supporting athletics are nice, but they are not why we're here. Why Brandon matters is because he reflects poorly on the primary (academic) mission of the school. If the non-U fans were mad and signed your petition, but no one within the university or alums cared, this would already be over by now.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Really money does NOTHING||
unless you have a crapton more of it than everybody else. We have a lot, but we can't dominate other elite programs with compensation. A big ego would presumably rather choose something to turn around that will not be a stinkbomb for the foreseeable future.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Faculty and staff, too||
Have it it, employees

I do not think that word means what you think it means. But yeah.

You happy now or you still want to fight with someone on your side

Probably sit in the same area, for less money, just stubhubbing

It's Utah's secret weapon. Welcome and thanks for the nice words.

Good causes all
|13 weeks 2 days ago||$30 sez Gardner throws no interceptions this weekend||
If I lose I'll give 30 to Keeping Growing Detroit, which provides urban gardening services in the city (and employs at least one huge Wolverines fan).
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Unless he plays football for Michigan||
He is too OT for an in-season thread.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Hey get your Groupons here for Saturday's game||
No kidding I got an "Amazon Local" offer this morning (think Groupon with an Amazon logo slapped on it) for a "special package" for the Miami game
$65 includes ticket hot dog beverage t-shirt and program
which, as we all know, is WAY LESS THAN LOYAL SEASON TICKET HOLDERS PAY.
So, yes, we are at Desperation Defcon 6 or something.
Really, Dave? YOU ARE COUPONING OUR FOOTBALL GAME?
