At the risk of mentioning something positive Brandon did, our future non conference schedule is pretty awesome from a fan perspective. Off the top of my head: Texas, Oklahoma, UCLA, Va Tech, Florida. He redeemed his doucherous ways by preceding to ruin the ND series and royalties crewing us with the MSU OSU home/away cycle, but that's another story.

The Big12/Baylor/TCU situation recently and all the flack they got for ridiculous non conference schedules makes this a lot less of a thing in the new playoff era. Their brand probably had a lot to do with it, so they definitely shouldn't have been as naive about playing tin cans.

Michigan has struggled a lot when our 'big time opponent' is on the road... I wouldn't get rid of these games, but I think we'd benefit from at least 1 easy non conference warm up first. Someone else said, move Utah to week 2 last season and I think we'd have had a good chance at a different outcome.

With the rampant speculation of benefits in the form of money at so many schools, it's pretty amazing we don't have more proof. What's preventing all of these guys from talking after they choose a different school or land in the nfl? Someone like Gary who, if Michigan is as clean as we think about benefits, wouldn't really be throwing bricks in a glass house. I guess I'm not that surprised someone wouldn't want to draw that type of attention for being the one to dish the dirt, but we've seen a ton of these guys mess up doing way dumber stuff.

well, the track record isn't exactly stellar after letting max leave last year only to be a solid contributor on indiana's conference title team...while our big guys were pretty much a liability 95% of games

He should hire christie after his term ends this year ... he's pretty good at using his political power to prevent nj people from leaving the state

It's weird that we have to even consider what our one night game per year could possibly be. It seems like similar situations at Wisconsin and Penn State and it feel like all of their games at home are at night. I'm tired of the traffic and weather excuses.
|1 day 5 hours ago||I can't believe PSU or Wisconsin is not at night..||
I can't believe PSU or Wisconsin is not at night.. it was such an obvious decision, and if you look at next year's schedule there really isn't one on that schedule that makes a lot of sense. I wouldn't be surprised if we go 2 years now without one. Score a victory for the blue hairs lol.

PSU's main rivals were Pitt and WVU, but JoePa ended both pretty much by refusing to play either one regularly because he didn't like losing. They don't have a hoops rival.. Rutgers vs PSU women's hoops maybe lol.

speaking of nbcsn, is this an option for big ten games ... they're still shopping half of our games right? I hope we stick with espn/abc

I think that rumor has weight. their basketball arena is also an ice rink.. why wouldn't they have a team? they have they money, too

I have a feeling we are going to be matched with a really tough super regional team (given we make it that far) ... the 14-16 ranked teams are all teams who have lost a ton to really elite teams this season... LSU, Kentucky, Texas A&M, Arizona, UCLA, etc... it's going to be a long road this team will need to face, they seem to finally be living up to expectatins

I was a student from 2003-07.. I think the band was across from us during my freshman year and then moved to the bottom side of our section... I could just be recalling this from tv, not sure ?

So, from what I've read, they can't get into trouble because even non-student-athletes could take fake classes--so they weren't 'benefits.' And, if they absolutely have to get into trouble, the football and men's basketball teams are now off limits because theyvr mysteriously been dropped from the list of allegations, and all blame goes to the women's basketball team? Sounds about right.

|1 week 1 day ago||Oklahoma City, Portland, Las Vegas, and Louisville||
Oklahoma City, Portland, Las Vegas, and Louisville are the biggest cities in states that don't already have teams and they are all pretty much exactly the same size. Continue down the list and you start getting to places like Virginia Beach and Omaha. I think Vegas might be the best choice considering the decent population in addition to huge, adult tourist population looking to spend money on entertainment.

Softball is crazy with substitutions. Miss. State replaced their starting pitcher, but moved her to right field. She (lefty pitcher) is now back in for the 3rd time to face a lefty batter. There is a lot of roster strategy and rule use that make this game interesting. It has worked each time she's returned so far. The Bulldogs are giving the #1 Gators everything they have to take them down and open the door for us to possibly move back into the top spot. It's tied up in the 7th.
