At least Jake will have a familiar butt to put his hands up under. That should ease the transition to the pros.

Wut? JT has about the same odds of being drafted in the first round as I do.
|1 day 9 hours ago||sometimes||
there are just not enough upvotes in the world.
|1 day 9 hours ago||Pro sports leagues are socialist||
because, while they redistribute wealth among the property owners, they also allow individuals to seek their market value.
I'd say college sports is communism. The "government" decides what someone will get, and it's the same for everyone. They even dictate what food their citizens can receive without it being an "improper benefit." That's far beyond socialistic redistribution. That's state control of all private transactions.

if Tunsil, Ole Miss, and the innocent bagman himself want to disprove it, they can provide their cell records showing no such texts occurred on that day/time.
I suspect they won't be doing that.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Yes they would||
people do it all. the. time.

Do I get the $1000 or the donut? I'll take either.

General Harbaugh, what is best in life?

And it was only their dogged, unrelenting pushing of the authorities over the decades that made this reckoning finally come about. Amazing persistence. The 30-30 was gut-wrenching to watch... hope they do an update when all is finally put to rest with prosecutions and prison time.
Embedding a video below of the families outside the courtroom yesterday singing "You'll Never Walk Alone." Amazing stuff.
|5 days 1 hour ago||Wow||
Thanks for posting, this is an amazing story. I never thought I'd hear anything to rank with the Kurt Warner bagging-groceries-then-became-NFL-MVP-and-Super-Bowl-winner story, but this is at least as unlikely. Incredible.

Both of which have been shown to have a therapeutic benefit in low doses.
Cool recent (2016) writeup on various studies:
Older NYT writeup (2014):

there is such a thing.

|5 days 2 hours ago||For starters, but things can escalate quickly w/ DOJ||
Suppose the narrow focus of the informal inquiry is satellite camps--which as you suggest have much more limited dollar values associated with them and none of the TV revenue that oils the larger machine-- and that the DOJ begins with some interviews and written questions on the camps only.
Even at the informal stage, DOJ can request a huge swath of documents, such as emails, relating broadly to things such as "recruiting camps" or even "recruiting" from NCAA or conference front offices. Usually any investigated entity in that situation will bend over backwards to avoid a formal investigation and the virtually unlimited subpoena power that it brings (I've worked as counsel for companies under document production requests from the DOJ antitrust division and you have to make copies and produce everything, just everything). Your usual (smart) position is to say "Yes, Sir, anything you want and here are some delicious cookies to go with it."
Either way, anything the DOJ would see in those emails, for example, between NCAA's Emmert and SEC's Sankey, could implicate other lines of investigation that make the scope broader and broader. It spirals quickly if there's anything deemed to implicate anti-competitive behavior. What if Sankey and the commissioners have an email thread discussing TV contracts that each conference is supposed to negotiate independently? That would be a huge deal. It really is pulling the proverbial thread from the sweater.
|5 days 3 hours ago||I think it's perfectly appropriate||
for the DOJ, particularly the antitrust division, to investigate the cartel behavior of an industry this size. We're talking tens and tens (hundreds?) of billions, which in any other business is going to get you some scrutiny when you're explicitly colluding to constrain competition.

who upvoted this.

if Rutgers just stays wandering in the desert. The fewer people notice them, the better.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yes, jews had a bit of a rough patch historically||
but Michigan fans have been wandering the desert for a while now.
Until we start consistently beating OSU and MSU again, I can say without a hint of hyperbole that we are truly the most oppressed peoples of the Earth.
Where's our brisket, man?

I grew up in the 80s and just learned "Prince" was his real name. Prince Rogers Nelson. Who knew. Not me, that's who.
In his honor, tonight I'm going to make like Apu and party like it's on sale for $19.99.

Sweet fancy Jeebus. Have you ever heard of the Elvis? The Beatles? Rolling Stones? How about Michael Jackson? Johnny Cash? U2? Whitney Houston? Anything ring a bell here?

Tell MRON46 to get an MGoBlog account. We should get the bastard in here for a weekly OSU insight post or somethin'.

I don't think there's any reason to be sheepish or apologetic about reading 11W. I only wish there was a site even halfway as readable for MSU. There isn't.
