However, the Bdubs in my adopted hometown is fucking terrible. They moved into a strip mall location (which is a good high traffic area), terrible set up for the dining areas and the food is always cold. 3/4 of the time your original order comes out wrong, and when the re-make comes out its still cold.

Borges is the OC by definition he is in charge of the offense and it's up to him to adjust as necessary. What we've seen from him this year is the same ol' crap. If your OL is playing like shit then you need to adjust your play calling to suit what you can and cannot do.
I'm way to lazy to chart this but I would be interested to see where DG's picks have come from (short/intermediate/long routes) as I believe the majority of DG's picks have come from arm punts 20-30 yards downfield. He has the accuracy and strength needed to make short throws and if you have to just roll the pocket out which gives him the added option of taking off if needed and takes some of the stress of the O-Line.

No, I'm not. He refuses to adapt to personnel and/or make in game changes and we've seen this behavior for the past 3 seasons. There is something to be said about sticking to your game plan/staying true to who you are, but flat out refusing to change a gollram' thing about it is asine.
Even if he pulls a win out against OSU I still say he should be gone. When us simpletons can call the play before the snap then I can only imagine what types of things actual Coaches pick up on.
There is no reason him and DG should not be 100% on the same page since he is his position coach. I can chalk up some of DG's problems to his lack of game experience at QB but seriously the regression of DG and Denard has been amazing.

Short passes. Short passes. Short passes. Short passes. DG get's into trouble because he arm-punts the fucking ball into 2 or 3 deep coverage all the damn time.

I remember reading a story where it was statistically proven that baseball players have the highest likelyhood of juicing (e.g. playing hard everyday) their numbers in a contract year and then coasting along once they get paid. I mean just look at the contracts given to guys like Votto, A-Rod, Hamilton, and of course Pujols....not worth it at all.

Big Will wanted to play D (intially). Cass Tech has a history of large, tall humans who think they belong on the other side of the ball despite probably being better suited for the OL.
RR started him off on the D side of the ball but it was pretty apparent that he would never learn to keep low (so say the practice rumors) and eventually moved him to guard and flipped Q. Wash over to D. Once Hoke got here he moved him back to D b/c of our non-existent DL depth where he became serviceable but ended up being drafted as a OL.

I view both of these comments in the same context; that recruiting is streching so far out that kids that are being recruited are less young adults (juniors/seniors) and more..well kids. End of story, not comparing a boy to a girl simply saying these kids are starting to look more and more like the ones still playing hide and seek on the playground.
Brian, if you feel so strongly that its the right of the blog to cover these kids (despite being a part of the problem) and implementing such a draconian and arbitrarly enforced policy then I suggest turning comments off for those posts and/or locking the treads when posted if thats not possible.

I think this situation can best be summed up as "some people are forgetting what it was like to be in college; party, class, hook up with girls(or guys), repeat 3 more times, graduate. Those are your priorities in school. Yes, you may have went to every game back in the '60/'70/'80/'90's but a hell of a lot of those games were not even televised so in order to see them you had to go. Not everyone puts Sports on a pedestal like we do here on this site, the majority view a game as a social function.
I think the AD got it right by shrinking the size of the Student Section for football when students revolted and didnt buy the tickets alloted to them in response to the GA guidelines but badly miscalculated for Bball (the policy reeks like an attempt to cover their asses). This despite the fact they tried to reinvent the wheel with these policies in the 1st place, its not like the B1G doesnt have any other stadiums that seat over 100k or anything or a successful bball program up the road which has the type of student section they are trying to replicate.

>Prep Roundup (e.g. commits)
>Misc. stuff such as the 2017 kid and other "quick hitter" items.
Small gripe as its not like I would have missed the update on JuJu but when I think of the recruiting posts I tend to think most people are looking for updates on current targets first and then want to digest information on commits.

A strong B1G means the conference is thought of, nationally, as being a powerhouse which equates to better recruiting, which leads to more primetime games, which leads to more championships etc. etc.
The SEC is not that tough of a conference. They are just aubsurdly top heavy with 'Bama, LSU, Florida and Georgia however, their crappy schools are just as bad or worse as any other conferences (e.g. Kentucky getting beat 2 years in a row by a directional school).
Perception in college athletics is huge as it gets you votes in the media polls and the selection committees. Last year in BBall the B1G teams beat the snot of each other which equated to most having crappy conference records but because the conference was perceived to be tough many of those schools made it to the Dance. So again, a strong B1G is good for everyone. If your conference sucks then you end up like the Big East/American Conference where no one takes your champion seriously.

Therein lies the problem; NCAA Football is currently the NFL's "minor" league.
Do minor leaguer's get huge salaries and benefits? Nope, but they get a little something something (e.g. real cash and not the implied value of a scholarship).
Let each player own their own rights (e.g. marketing/appearence fees/etc.), let them hire agents and/or regulate those who wish to become NCAA agents like the NFL does, let Agents "advance" money to kids HOWEVA this is done without any payback gurantees. If a kid washes out then that money was a bad investment. Future stars will get paid their worth, 6th rounders will get nothing unless an agent really wants them.
Or you attempt to "fix" the sport and get all the money out of it, which is simply never going to happen. Its a catch 22 situation when college football used to be the thing you did before the NFL and 4yrs tuition seemed like fair compensation. Now its turned into its own industry and you cannot blame the players for wanting their cut of the pie.

I still think its safe to say that the majority of people who take time off, usually do not return (I've seen people a year away from graduating do this). Those who have a plan (e.g. small school to Michigan or Out of State school to home) usually are your successful ones.
|19 weeks 4 days ago||I still do not understand how||
I still do not understand how that failed; IIRC it wasnt a requirement to grant full cost of attendence scholarships but an option. I mean there are always going to be have and have nots, its a fact of life.
You are a generic 3 star recruit in any sport, you get an offer for FCA from a power school but you know that they get blue chip kids in every year and your chances of "making" it big are slim, you are basically a depth kid.
Or you go to the in-state mid major school on a traditional scholarship, become a 2/3 year starter (because the competition on your own team isnt as tough), and get drafted in a late round.
With scholarship limits in every sport there is no skin off of the mid major's backs (e.g. the Power schools hoarding talent like in the '60/'70's). I would think that even if a high level mid major (Boise) offered a FCoA scholarship, that no University that couldnt afford it would follow simply to keep up with the jones. You would have a revolt from the faculty/GAs/students and watch your enrollment plummet.
TL:DR FCoA scholarships are perks just like waterfalls in Alabama's locker room. Your not going to get those at Northeast Southwest Mobile College A&M.

They are starting to pop up around where I live.
Bloomberg this week had a nice article where it talked about Tesla and how they are expanding their charging stations network. IIRC you get to charge your car for free (nice perk), and after only 20 minutes your car will be at 50% (if fully depleted) or you can pay the "cost of a tank of gas" and a robot will change out the battery pack in your car, swap it with fresh batteries and off you go in under 90 seconds. Pretty slick IMO.
They are also supposed to be launching a lower cost model (30-40k) in the near term.
|20 weeks 50 min ago||I think the B1G over||
I think the B1G over estimated the demand for this game in general regardless of matchups as it wasnt any better the inaugural year either which featured a re-match of one of the best games of the 2011 season; Wisconsin/MSU. As I said before tickets were going for below face in the days leading up to the game or $10 hours before the game. I simply lucked out when my Sparty friends were basking in the glow of their season and were thinking with their hearts rather than their wallets.
Additionally, they've discussed making "season" holders reserve hotel rooms along with their tickets to force them to put more skin in the game (aka no empty seats). Also, they allowed holders to upgrade this year to fill in those bottom sections, as well as lower the price on a block of previously $120 seats to $90 IIRC.
For me, I understand that anything short of M or Ohio being in the game means I will never get a return on the "investment" but as this is a game I could make on short notice, its worth it to me.

Clowney's hit, while shitty for us, is f*cking awesome as he blasts off the line, stays low ( as best as a 6'6 guy can do), wraps up, and drives through VS.

Michigan is in an enviable position to not have to raise prices in order to cover costs and we've already seen the effects the TV money is having with softball, baseball, track etc. getting facility upgrades which one would think would last 10 years or so before needing additional upgrades.
At some point they are going to run out of shiny things to add to the budget, and the fan will still be stuck with a $600 (or more) PSD, and dropping $100/ticket to see M beat up Baby Seal U. Ever wonder why they stopped announcing that it was a "sell out crowd" and turned it into being "part of the largest crowd to watch football this saturday"? I want Michigan to have some semblence of the place of my youth rather than just another money grab from the moment you park @ Pioneer.

Its all about the points; Go to Mgoblue's website, find the football tab and somewhere in there it should link to a "giving" page.

Also, as an alum you will get a few points automatically for being an alum but I forget how many as they recently changed the point system.
A good path to success is to make sure you give for say 2-3 years, and then request season tickets. Of course if you make a lump sum donation of say 10k plus the seat costs you may get someones attention.

Right now there is such a huge supply (subscribers) that they can afford to throw buckets of money at a conference just for the right to broadcast a random Tuesday night game but if that cost starts being shouldered by actual sports fans, expect everyone to say f*ck it I'll watch it at Bdubs (if at all). I honestly do not think the demand is there for XX million subscribers to pony up $50 a month for just ESPN, and end up watching the crap they put on TV.
Best thing everyone can hope for is that Fox Sports 1 takes off and gives ESPN a run for the money (though it retrospect, they will probably overpay to get a "name" conference on board).

It was posted in the UFA thread after the draft. Good for Roy though, MOAR M football players in the League makes for better recruiting.
