Yes it screws over the schools, basically all bowls screw over the schools, unless your payout is 4 million from a BCS game.
What do you expect though? When you have a stadium of 70k and it's in a remote location for both schools there are going to be loads of tickets available. And when the supply is a plenty and the demand is short, the price will fall.
I love stubhub for this point, it creates an actual supply and demand of the ticket. Now the same thing go for scalping tickets, I rarely pay face value for tickets because I buy from scalpers. When the demand for the tickets is low, why would I go to a ticket office to buy a $35 dollar ticket when I could get a $15 dollar ticket from someone else? Its called smart shopping. On the flip side, I've attend 150 pro/college sporting events and have tried to buy from scalpers and when the demand is high the price of the scalpers will be high, no matter the event.
What's a shame is watching these bowl games on tv and there are only a couple thousand attending instead of giving away tickets to the schools. If the school is in the bowl game, they should automatically receive a share of tickets FREE of charge just by making it to the bowl game. Then the school should be able to sell them to fans at their leasure. I've never understood why a bowl would require the bowl team to buy tickets to the event. Going to a bowl shouldn't put a school back, it should help the program.

I agree with a lot of the stuff you posted, but several points are complete spectulation and is probably down right a lie. This thread is just sleazy and classless in its self.
That being said, I agree that Urban makes left field comments and promises that he doesn't keep. Urban is just a fad that these recruits are blown away with. The fairtale will end soon enough, with or without major violations added on (which SHOULD be the case).

First, their recruiting class so far, even with the loss of Pittman is still solid.
1. Looks basically like our closing recruitng class last year, but they still have 2 months to add to it.
2. Also someone mentioned MSU not being a national recruiting brand, yes they may not be a OSU/Florida/ND/Michigan, but they are getting recruits from everywhere. Which is great for the program and the brand of MSU. Of their 21 commits, 5 are from the state of MI. 23% of their recruits are from MI. 4 out of OH, 3 out of WI, the rest are from places like NJ MD CA GA Canada FL. I'd say Sparty is doing OK when it comes to recruiting and recruiting nationally.
Other than that, who really cares as long as Michigan wins in the head to head against recruits in our own backyard. The only thing I'm worried about is ending this rediculous losing streak to sparty.

Love this post! Absolutely true and a wonderful business/self improvement book!

completely agree. Look classy. I'd add one maize stripe between the 2 blue stripes and it'd look amazing. but overall sweet jersey very clean looking

I'm actually glad this was posted. It's relevant, as long as we don't get a play by play of EVERY U of A recruit. But Michigan has expressed interest in Fuller so its definitely relevant.

Let's be fair people, Colorado did FINALLY win a road game with their seniors! That's definitely something recruits will love.

In 2nd place. Synder is owning the polls though. Why don't we get a computer to vote for us like teams did for NCAA football 12 traditions?!
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Personality||
Personality isn't necessarily a big factor to whether or not some poor kid from the inner city will take money or not. It comes down to making the right decision when approached.
Look at Webber/Rose there personality are completely different. Webber took money, but it wasn't his personality, he was a shy kid coming into college and even after. It comes down to attitude and desperation. The arrogance of Rose didn't mean that he would take money, it was just his personality. Rose had opportunities to take money and didn't. It comes down to decision making and doing what's right.
I agree that Pryor is completely different when it comes to attitude and personality than Dunn. But that doesn't mean when Dunn is presented with $10,000 cash he'll make the right decision. Hopefully he will, but when it comes down to it personality means little when cash is knocking on the door (or car door...)

What I was saying is the focus in 2013 will most likely be on moreof a I form situation rather than a spread. As a result our HB will get 25+ carries a game instead of 15 for both the QB/RB

Loved the comment from Dan Patrick about whether Brady could beat up Urban. Why not at a recruits house right?
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Glad to see Hoke and Co||
Glad to see Hoke getting in for an in home visit rather than just Fred Jackson which was reported earlier.
Great for Ohio getting Urban Meyer, but for a recruit that shouldn't be the only decision maker, if you're a bruising downhill tailback, why go to a spread offense?
In two seasons Michigan will see their RBs running for 1500+ yds a season, which is perfect for Dunn. If we don't get him though big deal, we have plenty of recruits that we're considering. I think getting Dunn is more about Michigan winning over Ohio than actually getting the player himself. ( don't get me wrong, love to have him suit up in maize and blue)

To the person who said Heaps going to BYU is like Kiel to Indiana clearly doesn't know anything about college football. BYU is in a completely different class when it comes to football than Indiana. BYU has had tons of solid QBs and is known for the passing game. Also they have a solid tradition when it comes to football with numerous major wins, bowl wins, and the 1984 NC.
Also Heaps is Mormon so it was a great fit. When he was coming to a decision it was a close race between UW and BYU, so that would make sense. He has a good relationship with the UW head coaches, Sark being a former BYU QB, so it seems logical. As has been stated though, they have Price who will be a Junior next year. I'm just surprised he didn't just redshirt next season at BYU instead of just giving up and transferring. It was a rough year with him at QB and he still needs a lot more development. He definitely has potential, but definitely struggles against better defenses as he's completely one dimensional.
You won't see him in the Big 10, look for him to transfer to a pass happy PAC12 school. UW, WSU, or Oregon St could be potentially a good fit.
