Really feel for Hugh's kids. Camp runs 9AM to 12PM. With travel time, gotta think he'll be gone at least half a day.

I just feel relieved for Hugh Freeze's children - he's gonna get a fat severance package AND more time to spend with them.

This is not analogous at all. Grand Rapids is certainly close to Detroit, and there are plenty of Detroit Tigers fans there. They also are not equivalent squads: the Tigers are major league, while the other is a minor league team.
The Istanbul example is better. Eurosnobs are obsessed with putting down MLS because the quality of play isn't up to their tastes (see: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Eurosnob).

Respectfully, not a single word of this post makes sense.

If you don't wanna support your local team because they're not up to European standards then I honestly feel bad for you. The Union stink at the moment but they brought in Earnie Stewart who is well respected and seems to be turning the team around. Sorry the quality of play may not be "beautiful" enough for your liking, but if you'd rather wake up at 7AM on a Sunday morning and watch teams in Newcastle, England and Turin, Italy in lieu of watching a team that you could have a personal, geographic connection with then that's your loss.
I have never understood Eurosnob mentality. If your NFL team stinks and are terrible to watch do you just stop being a fan? If that was the case Lions fans wouldn't exist.

What happens to Detroit City FC if this materializes? IIRC they crowdfunded some stadium renovations, seem to have a loyal and passionate following. Do they collapse into the new MLS team and create a genuine "Detroit United?"

The odds that Harbaugh reached out to his contacts at the DOJ to get this ball rolling are 100%

Perhaps I'm in the minority on this, but I just don't have it in me to ever consider cord cutting as a sports fan. Your savings amounts to less than $3/day. That price is more than fair to me to not have to worry about shoddy internet connection, streaming delays, and the lack of HD quality when I come home for the day.

Otzelberger has been one of the most sought after high major assistants in a long time. If he truly wanted the gig, they probably fucked up, even though we all know LaVall was a good dude and a good coach.

What I gleaned from this: Harbaugh definitely reads the blog.

This article expands a bit on this issue, and my god, is Kirby Smart a fucking sack of shit. He is sternly refusing to allow any transfers to...Miami? Because reasons?
"One of the reasons I put Miami on there was I wanted to set the precedent for the future, that kids would not be able to go to Miami right away," Smart said. "It's very important you understand that. That's pretty much standard operating procedure when a coach leaves one place, that a kid can't go there with the coach. That's important to me that people understand that."
Fuck this guy. Fuck the unlimited power that college football coaches wield over state law, their players, and anything else. It's very important that you understand that.

Absolutely fucking ridiculous. Almost makes me embarassed to be a football fan.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||What an absolute gem from the comments section:||
These camps are a serious advantage to teams up north and frankly had to be stopped.
If you want to work somebody out, bring them in. All those poor, not able to travel players they are trying to scoup up for free shouldn't be considering teams that far from home. It isn't good for them, their families, or (most importantly) their education to be so far from home and financially unable to go see mama whenever they want to.
And make no mistake, that is exactly what Michigan wanted....to get into empoverished communities in the south, scoup up recruits they couldn't get access to, and bring them north.
The NCAA is right here...in more ways than one.

Problem is finding a plaintiff. What coach is gonna sign up to sue the NCAA?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||We are seeing this already.||
We are seeing this already. Note that Harbaugh himself has not come out and given a statement on the issue. Instead, he's letting the kids themselves make their pitch. No doubt he coordinated this strategy in at least some respects.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||That is a fascinating||
That is a fascinating question, I would not put it past Harbaugh to do whatever the fuck he wants. I could see it now, Harbaugh offers and accepts at least one committment from a 0 star recruit at these camps, and essentially dares the NCAA to sanction him for giving that kid a shot.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||Yeah, I mean I think this||
Yeah, I mean I think this highlights the crux of the issue from their point of view. They didn't want to hold the camps but would have had to if everyone else was gonna do it.

That guy sounds like the worst (your guy, not the coach).

Regardless of the outcome it's pretty fucking incredible that the NCAA was forced to implement a rule soley because of the creativity and intellect of our head football coach. Harbaugh.
