I just sent you an email. Please respond so I can complete the transfer.
Enjoy the game!
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Not an ultra||
I'm not an ultra but I have a bit of familiarity with Ahinga's recruitment. He was committed to UCSB for quite awhile, including during his time in residency with the national program. I think he was originally committed to State before switching to UCSB. He then switched his commitment pretty late in the process to Michigan where he played in every game this past season.
I don't know the reason for the transfer to UCSB, but it seems to me like Ahinga was conflicted about where he wanted to go to school and ultimately the combination of playing time, strength of the team, and possibly more scholarship money pushed him back to UCSB. I would also guess that his relationships with the respective coaching staffs played into the decision. It's certainly frustrating to lose him though.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||In-state recruiting||
I have a family member currently playing D1 soccer. He played in the Development Academy for three years for a Michigan club. I'm familiar with his recruitment and I also have some knowledge on the recruitment of his teammates and some other players from the state that graduated in the same year as him.
It's a fact that MSU recruits the state much harder than Michigan. They have a much closer relationship with the big youth clubs in the state and it has definitely paid dividends. MSU has built a very strong program and about 75% of their players are from Michigan. I have also heard that MSU's coaches relate to the kids much better and are more approachable than Chaka and his coaches.
Although Chaka's national approach to recruiting seems to be working as he's been bringing in highly-rated players, I worry that it will become more and more difficult to sustain that approach if Michigan doesn't see more success on the field.

If this game goes to overtime, what yardline would they have to have the offenses start from in order to ensure that somebody scores at some point? I'm pretty sure the 25 isn't close enough.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Man up||
Stop waiting for the power to go out and just stick a fork in an outlet. It can't be worse than watching this game.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Seriously?||
I don't know, a two liter seems a bit steep. I'll give you a 12-ounce can for them.

Brady Hoke couldn't have said it better himself.

Lots of it
|2 years 29 weeks ago||Width of a soccer field||
The minimum recommended width of a soccer field is about 16 yards wider than the width of a football field. I don't know if it's feasible to add eight yards on each sideline or not.
It could also be the case that they'll just use a narrower field than usual, being that it's a preseason friendly and not a competitive match.
|2 years 44 weeks ago||Student section||
Nothing I miss more about the student section, football or basketball, than standing right behind the bench and hearing the coaching from Beilein. Really made me feel a connection with the team.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Good idea||
Good idea, but little brother always sits at the kids table.

Can't we just make them honorary members of the Coastal?
Nobody wants to go to West Lafayette and they're essentially already ineligible for the championship game.

Penn State football is about to become as relevant as Penn State basketball

I wonder what Charles Woodson will think of Worthy's irrational hatred of Missouri.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Auburn Hills||
Auburn Hills is hosting for the first weekend of the tournament next year. It would be nice to get a top 4 seed and be able to play at the Palace.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||Millen comparison||
I agree that Joe Dumars has done a poor job, particularly in the last five years or so, but he built a team that won an NBA championship. Matt Millen built a team that went 0-16. End of comparison.
|4 years 20 weeks ago||Good idea||
I agree let's bring him back. Sure he's a little old and hasn't played in awhile but he could be an upgrade at point guard. At the very least it would be entertaining.

He also said that he doesn't use Facebook or Twitter. So somebody must have set up the Facebook profile for him, which isn't unusual for football coaches.
|4 years 30 weeks ago||Christian||
Cullen Christian's announcement press conference lasted about an hour and a half, leading to the creation of this shirt.

Even Cullen Christian thinks this announcement is taking a long time.
|4 years 49 weeks ago||Three||
Actually the magic number is three. It will be two if the Indians lose tonight.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Holtz||
His inability to even pretend to be objective infuriates me most of the time, but tonight I just laughed hysterically throughout that segment.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||HAIL YES!||
That was great.

That's for the opening weekend of 2009
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Coach Tressel||
If Jim Tressel were still the coach, he would have made this whole suspended license thing go away as long as Pryor agreed to write a 500-word paper on why it's important to be a good student-athlete.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||At this rate||
At this rate I wouldn't be surprised if they awarded us a championship for last season as well.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||I don't know||
It could use a few more exclamation points.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||John Cooper||
As nice as it would be for OSU to become a repeat offender, I'd prefer that they hire someone like John Cooper instead of someone just like Tressel.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Obviously not||
Otherwise it would still be a Lamborghini dealership.
