"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

Not necessarily a bad thing. As rent and cost creeps up downtown, people will relocate a bit further outside (cheaper) which will then contribute to the development of those neighborhoods and have a cascading effect outward.

There's no way this isn't good for the city. Joe Louis is hopelessly outdated, and that's a prime location for different development when they tear it down.

I can, at this time, buy a pretty nice HD TV that will last me for years for the $1150 it costs for two season tickets. Unfortunately I had to surrender my two tickets this year because I could no longer justify the price for the experience (and quality of games, which are atrocious and have been discussed ad nauseum here). I still plan on making a couple games though.
The advantages to televsion are numerous -- you're not cramped like sardines, your own beer, your own bathroom, comfortable seating, great camera angles, replays, shelter from the weather, watch other games simultaneously, cheap food, no parking, etc.
I love going to games at the Big House, but honestly at $75 a pop per person per game, watching from home is enticing.

Not much to say, just silent consideration and a bit of reflection. A terrible tragedy.

I guess I fail to see why this can, in any way, be construed as a bad thing. You are optionally getting more for the season tickets you've purchased.

I grew up right next to Hillsdale. Hope we crush 'em.
Overall quite a difficult schedule, 'Nova, Syracuse, Arizona, SMU.. pretty impressive actually.

Its best not to pay much attention to the whims of high school juniors. All programs go through decommits and that's the main factor behind me not paying attention except on NSD. Sucks but oh well.

If Dave Brandon wants to refer to us as his "customers" then he better be working his ass off to improve the product.
Night games are cool, fireworks are neat, laser light shows are fun, etc. but at the end of the day it comes down to winning football games, as it always has.

Was he really "wrestling" with the decision as everyone had led on?
If he knew he was facing a 1 year suspension, seems like a no-brainer to me, get out and make money.

Hmmm, I'm simply not optimistic about Hoke or the program at this point, but I hope I am very wrong.
I recall a similar feeling about Beilein a few years back after starting 1-6 in the conference, he has been emphatically successful since. Hopefully Hoke can do something similar after a win over MSU this year.

NBA is a private entity right? I don't see how setting a minimum age is any different than any other employer setting any sort of criteria for employment (requiring a bachelor's degree, x amount of years experience, etc.)

Thanks for the memories! Best wishes in the NBA, will look forward to following their progress.

The offensive line stuff really bothers me. Shouldn't we at least be able to look servicable given superior talent relative to almost everyone in the Big Ten, or is our coaching that bad? Or is it a coincidence that a slew of 4 and 5 star O-linemen collectively aren't as good as the recruiting services had pegged them?
I don't know man.

Unfortunate, but true. Losing more games each year, regardless of circumstance, is bound to turn quite a few people off.
