Subjective and not definite. I've been tweaking since.
|13 hours 35 min ago||The one downside to losing||
The one downside to losing Dave Brandon was that was our one shot at ever naming it the Molly McGannon Memorial Student Section.
If we'd raised the funds this could have totally happened. The dream is dead.

And is there a name more fun to say than "Clint Copenhaver"?

Something like that.
And to the other guy: Gold played behind Sword for the most part. I wrapped his snaps into that.

That's a statement about how good Glasgow has been. Also Renes was even better in '98.

Nobody on the '97 defense scored lower than a B except nickel, which they barely used. I thought I was pretty fair.

The highest possible GPA you can have is a 4.0,
Woodson scored a 4.3.
We're done here.

A reader had a legal question, was referred to legal people who probably know way less about football than us.

Posted on the front page with locked thread so board thread was superfluous. Prefer not to have anyone know we have readers who think this shit is okay.

I wasn't aware that's a secret. Like I think it's in his introductory post.

Man I called it a wham and then got "corrected" by a certain former lineman who shall remain nameless.
It's hard to tell with this play but I think your analysis could be correct except I disagree about whether he's reading the NT. Maybe he should(?) be, but he's definitely watching the MLB because that's whose eyes he grabs, and that's whom he stuttered out of the hole.
And it makes sense from a play design angle. The NT could stunt or shoot into the wham block to cause all sorts of ruckus, and given he's lined up in a zero tech in a real 3-4 you're not going to get a lot of information about what gap he's going into--it's likely he has both of them and is just responsible for controlling his man.
On the other hand if as you say his first read is the gap he chose, he can watch to see if the MLB follows the center's pull (because that's a common enough key). If the MLB ignores the pull hit the backside; if he bolts to the backside you've taken care of the MLB. Instead he created option c: make the MLB do a stupid thing.

JZ and I got this far and found their album "The Mean Streets of Ace Deuce" last night in the studio but all the sites had them taken down.

Ace was not in Donkey Punch. DP was big on campus when I was in school; Ace would have been in middle school then.

This should not be happening anymore now.
When it happened before it was because one of the ad networks we run had some of these redirect ads in the mobile version. I paused them until they assured me they had found the problem and cleaned it up.
I've paused them again. Let me know if it keeps happening after 11 am today.
|5 days 23 hours ago||I think you're coming from a||
I think you're coming from a perspective that's shared by most in the college athletics world and many in the business world, but is not the perspective of most, and nor is it, I would argue, the right perspective.
Whether to speak out is ultimately an ethical question, right? On one hand, being part of an organization grants you access and a unique perspective. An enemy of that organization could use that perspective to damage the org. And one perspective inside is probably not a complete picture, so if one guy is talking and everyone else is mum the public will end up with a skewed perspective. That's why it's unethical to share secrets about the goings on of your company, your school, your program, etc.
However there is a higher level of ethics than that, and here's the disconnect. The people you're arguing with are speaking to these higher moral imperatives: that when your organization is diseased to the point where it's doing harm to itself and those who are part of it, the ethical thing to do is blow the whistle.
On both levels, we seek Truth. THAT is the moral we are serving when we keep our mouths shut about what goes on in our organizations. What I mean is that silence is NOT an ethic into itself. It is taught as such because it's self-serving; instilling silence is an effective method of protecting your organization from a few facts giving out a false truth, and of saving your own ass.
In this case, the Truth is that things were very wrong inside the Michigan program. And if ANYBODY who was around that program has absolutely proven his loyalty to Michigan and should be trusted implicitly to convey Truth about what went on in there, it's Gardner. We have had some impressive people come through this program, but he stands very high among them. If he throws shade on Brady Hoke, Hoke deserves it. If he throws shade on Nussmeier, it's because it's an open secret that the players did not trust Nuss.
These facts can no longer hurt Michigan; if Gardner spoke out a year ago it could have driven off recruits and damaged the team. But now we should all want to know the Truth of what happened to make Michigan so bad in 2014. Because what we care about more than Hoke's reputation here is that no player has to go through what Gardner did again.

Boo 16-team conferences. There aren't enough games to see your rivals. 16 teams is a league, not a conference. I'm with you on having a separate division for what's now the "Power 5." That in fact is what Division 1 was supposed to be, and they've actually threatened the NCAA to make a "Division 4" with their own rules if they couldn't offer full cost of attendance stipends.

I heard it's a fight. TV wants a night game, and Ann Arbor PD are like no fucking way you're going to have SPARTANS drinking in our city all day.
I'd bet it's 3:30.

They'll overnight if possible or issue an e-ticket. I bought my 2012 MSU ticket from them at 3pm Friday and it was on my doorstep before we left the next morning. I think it added six bucks or something.

True. Actually I was planning on it for early next week initially but the huge swing in Maryland tickets made it more relevant for this week. I had it ready yesterday but we had a flood of content yesterday and I didn't need to bump UFR down any further.
