This is more a question than anything, because I don't know how college hockey coaching searches typically go (you know, never having experienced one). If this was football, I'd be pretty confident in our ability to swoop in and poach someone from a smaller school. Michigan has so many advantages over small schools (money, facilities, playing in a P5 conference, etc.) that it makes sense to come to Michigan.
Does that apply to hockey as well, though? I don't think that resources are as lopsided. This is a sport where small, otherwise no-name schools can and do compete at the highest level. Does it make sense to leave the program you've built for Michigan when you can win just fine where you already are?

What kind of discussion do you imagine this post generating? Can't take a position on this one way or the other without involving politics. It's inherently political.

The question wasn't whether Flint or Dearborn doom you to a life in poverty. The question was whether it's the same degree as Ann Arbor. Whether it holds the same value.

I think the rule is you can't have competed in more than 30% of the regular season.

Even if that is true, it's still a different inquiry from the Davis case, isn't it? I think people are confused about Clark because of Davis, when the two aren't the same.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Sure. But note you're saying||
Sure. But note you're saying that he wasn't injured. The issue for Clark wasn't whether he was injured, it was when. Completely different question.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||The issue with Davis was||
The issue with Davis was whether you can have a medical hardship and yet participate on the scout team.
The issue for Clark was when in the season the injury occurred.
|13 weeks 1 day ago||Because his injury happened||
Because his injury happened too late in the season for him to qualify.

I like Speight, he did better than I expected this season.
He gets a ton of criticism I don't think he deserves.

New coaches get a recruiting bump, and Georgia seems like it'd be a cool place to play football.

Some of you are way too harsh on him.

Mgoblog isn't frequented exclusively by virtuous warrior poets. There are a ton of RCMB level posters here.

I hope this one stays up despite being posted later because the first one comes across a bit celebratory to me.

Yessss. Look into getting a glass rod too.

I don't know how this works- does prep school cost a year of eligibility?

There's really no pressure to fix it. It's not like people are going to stop visiting over it.

He's been banned 10 years......he was before my time, but as much WH style highlight videos as I've seen and having read his super guide multiple times, I can't help but wince when November 17th comes around every year. I can't believe it's been 10 years. I remember where I was when I heard. Being dropped off from 5th grade at home. Didn't truly understand what we lost that day, but I figured it out pretty quickly seeing the mourning that took place all over the internet. His impact and legacy is still felt at mgoblog. There will never be another WD.

I'm a Michigan alum, and I generally agree with most of what he said. I disagree with many of your answers.
I'm getting frustrated with people assuming their views represent Michigan fan/alum orthodoxy and anyone who disagrees is a troll.

In response to more than one comment up-thread:
Presumably, the revenue that NFL teams bring in is partly due to brand goodwill as well. Which might be why the article above used the 47% standard from the NFL's collective bargaining agreement. Obviously this won't be exact given the huge differences between the NFL and the NCAA, but it's a workable enough heuristic in place of employing an army of accountants to figure out precise figures.

Note: the comment you responded to didn't put forth an argument about whether players ought to be paid. It put forth an argument about valuation.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||I think we're getting star||
I think we're getting star happy. Might be experiencing star dilution. I get that our "stars" would be unquestioned stars on other teams, but the star system becomes unhelpful as a means to evaluate stand-outs if they're all starred.
For example, what happens if we played a loaded offense? It would be a team of stars v. a team of stars, which would defeat the purpose of stars altogether.

He said "drop," not commit. As always, I will assume the least exciting thing so I don't have a chance at getting disappointed. He's announcing he's going to Arby's for lunch today.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||Would you say you trust him||
Would you say you trust him to do the things a cornerback should be doing? Maybe we could come up with a title for a player like that.
Like trusted player. Or trusted football guy. Ah, shoot- none of those quite sound right.

I demand greater Stribling recognition in the KFaTAotW Standings. What does the man have to do!?

I have watched all of their games this season from start to finish.
They've looked woeful in all of their games.
