Yes, unmet expectations suck. But I would rather fall short of a high standard than be so terrible as to not merit consideration to that standard.
And, Itoo have learned with age to invest far less emotional currency in the outcomes of sporting events - especially when I have risked no real currency on them.

Although Hockey was good, football was historically awful and basketball was regular awful. 2013 was tough in relation to our expectations, but miles ahead of 2008 in raw performance.

Several of those are graduate transfers, so it's not necessarily a full-on dumpster fire over there.
But, they will be left with just 2 scholarship QBs, something we know too much about, unfortunately.
|5 days 14 hours ago||Would we?||
Would we be happy to pay $7M/year for a coach that has the track record Saban does? I know we probably don't want Saban himself, but some less-annoying version of him that still wins lots of football games?
I say definitively yes.

I'm so confused....
|1 week 4 days ago||grounding?||
BGSU QB just got called for intentional grounding, he was getting pulled down by the defender and didn't get the ball back to the LOS. So, any time that a QB fumble is called an incomplete pass because his arm was going forward, couldn't intentional grounding be considered?

With just 3 buttons?
|3 weeks 6 days ago||What is Jalen wearing?||
I'm not really a fashion guy, but do we now wear ties with button up long sleeve polos? What's up with that?
Then again, coming from a guy that thinks the mobster look shows you have won at life, coupled with that suit he wore on draft day, maybe that's expected.
I love the Fab 5 though, Jalen most of all. I can't talk about clothes anymore.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||But what do season ticket holders pay?||
I know that's the stated policy, but I'm not sure I know exactly what season ticket holders pay per game, and I'm a long time season ticket holder. There is a face value price listed on all the tickets ($75 or $95 for this past year, I believe). But, when I buy my tickets in April I pay something less than the sum of the face values. But, I also pay a PSD - a PSD that is not consistent throughout the stadium (and aren't some people still grandfathered in at $0 PSD in the endzones?).
So what is the minimum price with dynamic pricing - the listed face value or something else?
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Wow||
I certainly hope that this entire press conference was just coach speak, and Hoke is singing a very different tune as soon as the reporters leave the building.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||What about the reverse?||
As evidenced by this thread, there are plenty of MSU students that are UM sports fans. I have personally seen and met plenty of them and appreciate that their heart is at least in the right place
But, I have yet to find a single UM student/alum that is a Sparty fan. Thankfully, I don't think they exist.

Is the best option, in my opinion.
Anyone else remember in the past when our AD said they didn't want home-and-homes with the SEC because we had too many bowl tie ins with them? Things have changed a lot since then.

Go Bluh? Go Blech?

I always thought the best use of my seat cushion was to clearly identify where MY seat was. It was a good deterrent to the butt creep that occurs in an overly packed row of fans.

Princeton should talk to a big time athletic department (ours included). Seems like athletics has no problems finding new things to spend money on.

|33 weeks 1 day ago||But that's the fundamental problem of all polls||
I don't know of anyone who has ever been able to tell me what a poll really is. Is it:
1. A ranking of the best teams, in your opinion, where #1 should usually beat #2, #2 should usually beat #3, etc. if they were to play tomorrow.
2. A ranking of what teams have accomplished to date (schedule comes into play)
3.. A prediction of what the final standings/polls will be (schedule comes into play)
I think we all want it to be #1, but the long-standing model where we count losses, and if you lose you drop (even if you lose to a team ranked higher than you) blows that up. So, #2 and #3 are factors and schedule matters. QED.
But really, who cares in April and it just gives us something to blabber about.

My only issue is that calling him an "active" NBA player may be a bit of a stretch at this point. As of yesterday, there was a good chance his NBA career was over.
Not sure if today's news changes those chances in either direction.

Do you feel guilty being a keynote speaker for anything?
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks||
I'm really not "race card" guy, and racial issues are not a significant portion of my daily thoughts, but I do get annoyed that white basketball players are only compared to, or remind people of, other white players. Just like a black QB can only remind you of another black QB. There are 2 kinds of NFL slot receivers: white ones to remind us of Wes Welker or Ed McCaffrey, and everyone else.
Ok, no more rant, but thanks for reasonably comparing McGary to someone without considering skin color.

I like how the guy who gives the correct reason gets tagged for trolling

What was the story on James Young - why did he never seem to be a serious possibility or target for either UM or MSU?
|42 weeks 18 hours ago||Basketball||
My biggest complaint with college basketball these days is that I have no idea what is a charge vs. a block. Commentators don't seem to know either. If someone drives the lane, makes contact with a defender, we all just look at the ref to see what the call will be this time. Seems random a lot of the time.
I notice this more when I'm watching a non-UM game where I don't have as clear of a rooting interest, and it's frustrating. And I know the B10 is all about "toughness", but the degree that offensive players can get mugged without a call is annoying.

I am just a regular season ticket holder. Any way I can get the occasional premium ticket through this? Or is there any other way?
|45 weeks 6 days ago||ND||
I can't think of any either, so this shouldn't be an issue now.
Most importantly, to hell with Notre Dame.
|45 weeks 6 days ago||9 game schedule||
The knock to the 9 game schedule is the competitive imbalance: Some teams get 4 conference home games, some get 5.
Couldn't the scheduling be set up so that all teams in the same division have the same number of conference home games? The entire "leaders" division gets 5 home games one year, the "Legends" division gets 5 the next. That way there is at least an equal competitive home-away basis for getting to the B1G Championship Game.

The 16 seeds have 1, 3, 5 and 6 percent chance of beating their respective 1 seeds.
If that was at all realistic and roughly representative of probabilities for past years, we should have seen a 16 beat a 1 by now.
