Pretty sure Len Bias was a worse pick than Darko. Sam Bowie has a good case, too.

Yes, yes! A thousand times 'this.' Andersen left Wisconsin because they weren't admitting his tech ed recruits. I'm glad Oregon State takes a more lenient stance on admitting tailors as athletic recruits and frankly, I hope more schools follow suit.

No delicate way to say this: we didn't exactly 'Rooney Rule' these hires, or whatever. S&C meathead aside, 2/9 coaches doesn't align with a team that will be 3/4 black. Any legitimacy to this 'devil's advocate' spin on the staff? Total non-factor? Mods ban this chucklehead?

Duke 2002-esque performance. This team needs two sticks of dynamite. No early entries wearing navy tonight.

This is a saucy subject, but I can't resist!
Scooby should have had more offers and I'd bet he was overlooked because he's white. I always thought RR was "fair" in terms of evaluating talent, as opposed to Hoke who pretty much told incumbent starting safety Ray Vinopal to beat it.
Wisconsin football isn't quite "elite" but they are regularly ranked and start 15 or 16 whites, some even at "skill positions" that aren't usually reserved for "lunch pail" type players. It's such a stark anomaly and yet it can absolutely never be discussed. I am inclined to believe that there are a few more Scooby Wrights out there for the plucking in every recruiting class.

Open your mind! They could have been Africans from the continent of Africa or blacks born in Europe. "African American descent" - so presumptuous!

Spike's probably finishing his UG degree early so he can weigh his pro options at the end of the season

This was pretty easy to project after looking at his bulbous stat line from last week (2-13, 1 td). And I'm not even an expert!

man if not for the o-line sucking, gardner would finally be able to hold the ball for twelve seconds while he waits for his single read to improv into open space after finishing his route.

As a Doctor of Science, Schlissel should know better than to misgender potential candidates from all the different gender identities.

Team would still be better off right now with Year 8 of Rich Rod and Year 1 of DC #8. Try to bust that myth, Michigan Man.

He was a great man and a willful leader. Some old B-school nerds thought they could make more money by painting the stadium neon. Our players were so dedicated that they were willing to practice fifteen extra minutes every week. Now they can't even play a full sixty minutes, let alone the four-hour work week that the case study doofuses recommend.

I think you're supposed to stick to one player per number but I've seen a whole lot of zero today.

A lot of white knights in this thread defending the honor of a whore who has serviced thousands of men on camera. Surprised your post-modern feminist professors allow you moral absolution to follow sports. Of course in upside-down bizarro world, this chick is a switch-flip away from being perfectly eligible girlfriend material.

I'd be interested in reading an even more rudimentary primer on college soccer. Are the number of scholarships consistent throughout the division? I recall it being about ten per team - are partial scholarships common to divide the spoils, ie baseball?
I know that private academies have largely replaced the ODP feeder system, at least for the national team. How important a role do those play in college recruiting? Is it anything like high school basketball's AAU?
It seems to me that depth charts rarely feature upper classmen on the bench. Are they phased out if they haven't won playing time after a certain point? Are transfers particularly common, moreso than say football?
Do coaches bend the rules by finding academic scholarship money for players? I seem to remember Akron under Caleb Porter always had a fair foreign-born contigent, and wondered if he had found a way to pay for their full rides while still recruiting. On that note, what makes a school like Akron a perennial contender (or comparable hockey minnows like Ferris State)? Logically, you'd think their athletic departments simply focus more (attention, budget, etc) on the one particular program, but do they really have a leg up on massive state schools?
On a more subjective note, Steve Burns stepped down in sort of a Lloyd Carr manner, but the team under Chaka Daley has not sniffed the success of that Final Four run with the Saad/Meram/Saad tandem. Is Daley still coming up short of expectations, or simply meeting them? What's the timetable to "develop" a program in the coach's image?
