"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Eh...Nuss is kind of a mulligan as far as I can tell. No one honestly thought Saban was crazy enough to hire Kiffin but it happened.

Eh, I deal with check/debit/credit fraud on a daily basis. As long as his record was relatively clean then a plea is fine in this case.
At the same time he probably recieved a little bit of home cooking considering Burdick isn't the county prosecutor anymore.

He was still finishing up requirements for his graduation from the University of Michigan at the time and was not enrolled at Central Michigan. According to Heeke, the Chippewas weren't aware of the incident until shortly before CMU's game against Syracuse.
-1 for reading comprehension.
Despite this Mt. P is a small town....the AD knew about this.

where is this strife coming from that DB is not going to be the AD next year? Does he not have a contract thru something like 2017?

Yeah but you then bury that tidbit under the stuff you posted last month. Would have worked better to put that up top and then link to the previously known info otherwise it looks like a re-hash of your previous thread.

SOME insitution will enter in its place, that much is for certain no matter the outcome. If the NCAA would have seen the writing on the wall they would have started making these changes much sooner than now and continue to survive in a >75% capacity.
I don't believe that the majority of the criticisim that you've heard about the NCAA revolves around the complete abolishment of the NCAA rather the fact that the So. Illionois Syacmores can no longer have the same say as a $100+ million dollar "Power 5" schools (i.e. the playing field is already un-level, let's let the Rich be rich). Everyone realizes that you have to have a governing body to set playing standards even for your over-30 beer league softball team; it's not like your suddenly going to have 200+ scholarship players on a football team.
I fully believe that this argument will come down to going to Michigan and having your room+car+off campus housing+ similar perks of a large school for or going to CMU and only having your tuition + on campus housing paid for. In no way does this really change anything that isn't happening already; richer schools can give you more things/ even if you just ride the pine or you can go to a smaller school and hope you strike it rich by being a starter. It's the 70's all over again 'cept with more (legal) money.

Boisture ended up @ MSU and had to retire due to chronic back issues IIRC.

The Mt. P location has been open for a couple years (right next to Meijer) but they are doing a reno and adding a brew house to it.

I know that but I still think it was a unneeded aspect of the deal. Many in his camp have stated that in retrospect it wasn't as good of an idea IRL than it was on paper.

Looks to me like pieces of hardwood from the various courts they've played on. IIRC this years floor had that white design.

1. After being there for this long, the NBA wants 2 teams in LA and will never approve this.
2. Any sale agreement likely includes "will not move team" language considering it was well known that he wanted to move the Kings to Seattle further making it harder for him to do so in the future.

This is why you dont always chase that smokin' blonde (USC) to try and take home that you know is just going to cause you grief. Sometimes it's ok to go after the brunette or redhead who absolutely adores you and call it a night.
(BTW this is a general statement, sometimes I just don't understand the decisions kids make and within a year or two end up transferring which further hurts their chances at making the League)

You do realize that an employer can make anything they want llegal right? If i'm not mistaken UPS drivers cannot have any alcohol in their system when they are out driving hence if they want to party they need to allot enough time to sober up even though it's not a crime unless your over .08 in most states. Legalizing it has nothing to do with it.
|23 weeks 3 days ago||You dont waste a 2nd round||
You dont waste a 2nd round pick on a player, that right now at this moment is the 3rd/4th string WR; Maybe a 4th rounder on someone like Allen Robinson but nothing any higher. At the very least the Lions could snag a veteran FA to fill that roll in someone gets hurt.

Late to the party and only came here to say who the hell is making these decisions?
I do not understand having a "conference" tournament 10+ hours away from most schools in said conference and I really do not understand that the conferences marquee Bowl game features a cross country hike to California. #tradition I suppose. Fuck. This. Shit.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||I think he meant that with||
I think he meant that with many of these recruits having offers from Miami (YTM), Florida, Fla. St., Georgia, South Carolina, Clemson, etc. basically the pick of the litter of Southern schools you are going to have a hard time getting them up North not that it's impossible to get kids from down South.
I have no evidence to back this up but it seems that half the time a Northern school picks up a blue-chip type kid from the South he grew up in the North and only recently moved down South and/or has some other connection to the school.

Make it regulated via the already in-place accrediated Agent structure. Since he's proposed a defined max amount then break down the payments into yearly increments (i.e. 1st year 30% payback, 2nd year 25% 3rd 20%, 4th-15%, 5th-10%).
Last of all, make sure that a loan is written off if a player is out of the leauge in 5 years. This will help to ensure that their is a risk to extending a player money and to not just throw it around to anyone/everyone.

Well its the wrong side of the ball...offensive wins games defense wins championships. Just look at Denver and all the coin they spent on the defensive side of the ball after their SB debacle.

KY resident here.
For what its worth, i've gotten nods of agreement when I tell my coworkers that this team is in no way comparable to the Fab Five and will not be remembered as such down the line. As someone pointed out above, this team is 5 individuals who didn't decide to start playing anywhere near a team-centric level until tourney time.

Is it just me or is this kid not worthy of at least a flyer of an offer? (by that i mean sometime in the near future and not February of nxt year) Based upon watching his MHSAA playoff performances it wouldn't be a terrible decision and frankly if it comes to pass you simply take the higher ranked kid and tell him he is your *guy*.

Oh how I love the irony when this conversation comes up.
Paying their dues such as attending MSU for 1 semester, dropping out and never finishing college like 9 out of 10 "friends" that attended MSU from my HS class (PS that is a true statistic)? Anyone that I've known who went to Michigan, graduated from Michigan; not one drop out or transfer.
Fire Up Chips, Go Blue and hopefully my portfolio does really well as I fully intend on sending them to Michigan, out of state tuition be damned.
