|33 min 59 sec ago||Very true||
I am expecting an announcement or two this week or next.
|37 min 45 sec ago||Numbers are tight for 2016...||
Fall camp will determine the fate of 2-3. Nice to see Harris made it through the summer and is healthy enough to practice. Harbaugh also stated that Drake Johnson will be available (whatever that might mean). I guess we will find out soon if he is "full go" or limited. There was an article that stated that he is cleared to run.
|1 hour 18 min ago||It's in the Master Planning Documents||
The plans had to be approved by the regents. They have already paid an architect to show them designs, schedules and costs. All master planning documents start with them. It will happen sooner than you think.
|1 hour 29 min ago||Here's one link...||
There are othes. The end zone expansions are already approvd and in the master plans.
|2 hours 35 min ago||The will be bleachers....||
Estimated to be about 12,500 each on both ends. I am not sure if we have the demand for it yet. I see this as an incremental approach. One end zone at a time.
|4 hours 27 min ago||True||
Michigan has already sold out all of their allotment that they recieved from Maryland. The stadium will be packed with maize and blue!
|4 hours 39 min ago||Yes||
South end zone plans are already approved by the Regents. That doesn't give the AD authority to build yet though. He still needs to have the funds approved before they could ever start.
|6 hours 15 min ago||Keep an eye out for stadium expansion....||
Closing in the end zones around the South first and then the North.
|1 day 2 hours ago||150,000 seat stadium||
Adding seats to borh end zones. Yost's dream completed!
|1 day 15 hours ago||Good man!||
|2 days 3 hours ago||If i had a choice.....10.....||
but that ship sailed long ago. !2 or 16 for me. N argument with regard to BBall scheduling. too many teams. What next......pods?
|2 days 3 hours ago||Correct on the AAU membership||
Somehow, I thought they were in the AAU. Turns out they aren't. However, if you add Kansas then you have your contiguous footprint.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Totally agree||
The Big 12 may fall apart long before they get lucky with a Nebraska, FSU, or Miami etc.
|2 days 3 hours ago||all of them....||
Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa St, and A&M wanted in the B1G. We also know Missouri lobbied the B1G.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Very true||
They may end up in the very weak and messy AAC with UConn.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Not sure everyone is clamoring for more schools...||
as much as reality and past history are dictating expansion. I think most have become accustomed to that fact that it expansion is inevitable so they are simply stating their preferences. Personally, I would prefer 12 or 16. 14 just doesn't work at all for scheduling..
|2 days 4 hours ago||That's what lawyers are for....||
I don't see that as a show stopper. The money will get negotiated and the new money will make up the difference.
|2 days 4 hours ago||So true, but......||
TV $$$$ rules the day.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Short list||
BYU, Boise St, SMU, Houston, Cincinnati, Cent Fla, and USF. Those are really the only schools that make any sense for them.
|2 days 6 hours ago||It will be fun to watch||
Texas is a TEXAS sized problem. Big ego, big money, big politics! I can see a package deal of Texas, Baylor, Okla St and BYU headed to the PAC 12 if Oklahoma decides to leave next.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Grant money||
The B1G institutions receive federal and state dollars for research of which are significantly greater than other conferences and universities. Of course, Stanford, MIT, Duke and Vanderbilt get their fair share, but collectively the B1G has been ahead of the pack.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Good point||
We know that the PAC 12 Network has not reached its potential yet. The Texas Longhorn Network is not on DirecTV yet and under-performing as well. We all know TV $$$ are the engines behind CFB. Kansas would bring the 31st largest TV market and Oklahoma would bring the 45th largest market. Not barn burners, but I think they bring some of the St Louis market which ranks 21st.
|2 days 7 hours ago||I am with you on that||
Nebraska stays! If anything, the Big 12 gets poached first. We may see Texas in the PAC 12 before we know it.
|2 days 21 hours ago||"It was my cousin, cuz he can't get with me."||
Wow! Tragic, but wtf?
|3 days 4 hours ago||Fired the smoker up early||
Baby Back Ribs, Sausages, and Pulled Pork today!
|3 days 4 hours ago||Agreed||
The kid should have nothing to hide if he was just going to workout, be seen, and experience the process and OSU. Obviously, he had an agenda or he would have let the staff know. I have no problem with Dantonio on this one. As a matter of fact, I like it that he pulled the scholarship.
|4 days 5 hours ago||The season can't start soon enough!||
At least camp opens Aug 6!! Something else to talk about....
|5 days 5 hours ago||Kawakami will destroy York in the media if the 49ers stumble||
York and Baalke will take heat from the minute they start the season. They put themselves under the microscope and on notice. As for Kawakami, he was in the dark during the coaching search just like 99% of the others. He was a bit of a dick, but even shefter was wrong. They all misread the tea leaves.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Sep 3 SLC!!!||
|5 days 8 hours ago||Been there many times.||
The first 5 rows are impossible to see over the players.
