|1 week 6 days ago||You have to believe that||
hockey games are great places to find customers if you're a dentist. (from among the players anyhow)
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Just go the detnews.com|
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Or a simple CYA move||
by the Herd after spewing BS, maybe?
|3 weeks 8 min ago||Former UCLA season ticket holder here||
(before moving back to A2) and I second your thoughts. As a top state school essentially on the level of UM, Mora should meet the administration's off the field objectives as well, without the possible concern someone from the SEC might bring (deserved or not.)
|3 weeks 10 hours ago||Both Brandon and Hoke||
look like pre-ordained hires that simply needed an outside firm to provide some level of legitimacy to for the ones pulling the trigger (MSC and Brandon, respectively.)
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Go Sexton!!||
Time to win their first football championship since the playoff system started back in '75.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Not Kentucky...||
|6 weeks 3 days ago||+1 Stephan Humphries||
blocked for Jimmy back in the day and managed to leave with an engineering degree. That doesn't mean Harbaugh wasn't steered toward a particular curriculum, just that it was (and still is) possible to get a real education while playing high level collegiate football... if you're very smart, work your ass off and don't need a social life.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||So Tressel didn't whine||
but he did cheat and lie. F'm both (Dantonio and Tressel)
|7 weeks 1 day ago||That may be because||
Georgia suspends players for things other schools sweep under the rug... or try to (see Florida)
This is provided as an explanation, not an assertion of fact - although I do find it very believable.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Well, he did grow up in||
East Lansing, fwiw, and does have strong Spartan connections as you say. One thing I haven't seen mentioned while quickly skimming, is the time he spent working in Oregon's athletic dept.
Separate from AD qualifications I can say he is a good guy (personal experience) - very much so in comparison to DB.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||J. Harbaugh||
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Imagine harder (Rutgers AD anyone?)||
I don't understand how some people rise to the level they do.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Plus the yellow shoes gotta go||
I kept thinking there were flags thrown when there wasn't. Overall, I didn't care for the uniforms much at all and don't believe we should aspire to become Oregon, etc.. Of course I was born in the last century as well.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||This followed a timeout?||
It's bad enough to screw this up in the normal (hectic) flow of a game but to send ten players onto the field following a timeout is truly unfathomable. Incredible. Mind blowing. Or, more accurately a(nother) poster child for incompetent coaching.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Brandon expressed his true thoughts||
regarding students (and other malcontents) in a private conversation: Fu@k'm.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Seeing The Cure video brought about the realization that||
Michigan football has aged as gracefully as Robert Smith. I give you:
|20 weeks 2 hours ago||If he's cheating on the recruiting||
trail he isn't very good at it. Speculation around PED's may be another matter, but I would guess there's a bit of that going on everywhere. The degree is another matter...
|20 weeks 3 days ago||It is amazing||
how accurately centered the text is. It almost makes a person think that adding one letter might just throw everything off... So, you know, it wouldn't appear accurate anymore.
|27 weeks 3 days ago||Well, it's pretty cool||
to someone else who was there... I saw him a few times back in the day
|27 weeks 3 days ago||She looks a little young||
to be called a Cougar...
|29 weeks 6 days ago||Does it clarify||
whether it's UM (University of Maryland) or UM (University of Michigan)?
|32 weeks 4 days ago||One thing season tickets||
offer that you can't get on the secondary market is an opportunity to get to know surrounding ticket holders, sit in the same spot and develop some comradery. Unfortunately, with the volume cranked up during any downtime it is becoming increasingly difficult to talk at games. This in turn makes it challenging to develop the comradery comparable to years past. Here's hoping they eventually develop some balance between piped in music, ads and just letting things be.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||Well, Larry Brown has a history||
Of winning championships. Combine that with SMU's notable recruiting history (while more football oriented, it would make Calipari proud for the younger readers out ther) and it shouldn't be a surprise to see them bringing in a talented class.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||What about||
The bowl game leads you to believe Shane might be more accurate than Devon?
|37 weeks 11 hours ago||Makes sense||
seeing how he is Canadian and all, it's a natural path for him. In fact, close sources suggest it's the only path...
|38 weeks 1 day ago||They were in my dorm||
as freshman and definitely arrived with B1G approved physiques. Honeslty, I think Butch should have played football as an insane MIKE. He didn't have the hands to make a great tight end a la Paul Jokisch.
Based on this year's team, I am ok with skinny but talented freshman. Bulk may nice but perhaps an overrated luxury compared to years past.
|39 weeks 18 hours ago||I was at that game||
and sat in a section surrounded by Wisconsin students. I have to admit it was one of the funnest games (football aside) I have ever been to thanks to the Badger students. Not just because they were launching water balloons onto the field either (I don't recall anyone getting kicked out but couldn't swear by it.)
I should probably mention I grew up in Lansing and was in junior high at the time. Kirk Gibson was on that Sparty team, fwiw. They were nailed for NCAA violations following that season...
|40 weeks 4 days ago||I thought Oregon||
had the Duck market cornered.
|41 weeks 1 day ago||Seems to be?||
Damn straight we need to be State.
