The Ivies don't offer merit based scholarships at least not for undergraduate. Their scholarships are all needs based. So being one of the top math students in the nation would get you nothing financially but neither would being one of the top football or basketball players. Obviously being tops in your area opens up the possibility of acceptance, but it doesn't add any financial help. I know Northwestern also has (or at least used to when my daughter was applying) no academic merit based scholarships.

We had to put one of our cats down yesterday. Sixteen years is a good long life for a cat. Still, it hit my wife especially hard because she was my mother-in-law's cat so was a connection of sorts between my wife and her mother, who died 15 years ago.

I'll always wonder how much blame for the offensive woes should be placed on Hoke. I remember the IU game when it was realized our defense couldn't stop IU from scoring, so Hoke unleashed Borges, knowing our only chance was to score a lot of points. Granted, IU's defense wasn't exactly stout, but I still think Hoke limited both Borges and Nuss with his offensive philosophy that time of possession and not taking chances were more important than scoring a lot of points

I knew a crazy bastard that got his 4wd truck stuck all the time. He had a come along that got a lot of use. He'd put his feet on the bumper and lever between his knees and he could pull that truck out of just about anything as long as there was a sturdy tree within 25 feet.

Great read and a real eye opener. Thanks for posting. If you think you know anything about Cobb's character, you definitely need to read the linked article.

Just out of curiosity, I wondered when the first women were allowed to participate in the Michigan Marching Band. It was a lot more recent than I thought, 1972 (at least if the Wikipedia article is accurate https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan_Marching_Band ).

I know it's a different kind of whistling, but your mention of it reminded me of what my wife's grandmother told her when she was little and trying to learn how to whistle: "Whistling girls and crowing hens, always come to some bad end." In looking up that saying, I found an even earlier version:"A whistling woman and a crowing hen are neither fit for God nor men."
I can only imagine what her grandmother would think of a young woman strutting.

Thanks for the overview. Penn State has a new OC and a completely different approach on offense, so it's not surprising that their QBs looked shaky.

It's not necessarily corruption. A course like Horse Trading 101 would have covered it, and anyone sent to vote on behalf of a conference should have the experience and intelligence to not fall for something like that. That scenario of course based on the assumption that Guerrero truly was too inexperienced and stupid to see through the ruse. Otherwise, it is corruption and he is at its epicenter.

Dude just got pantsed by the SEC who are laughing their asses off. Now he's trying to make it sound like it's a good thing and the PAC 12 ought to appreciate what he's done.

The only conclusion I can draw is that the UCLA AD is an idiot, dishonest, or both.

Really? Meyer's comments look a lot worse than what posters from an opposing fan base have to say. Between his interview and Cardale's tweet from a few years ago, the door was opened about as far wide as it can get to expect pot shots.

Meyer's comments sound like a warning to NFL coaches to not expect too much from Cardale unless he has the perfect environment with no distractions then in 3-4 years he might turn into a decent QB.
Another possibility is maybe Cardale's Wonderlic score is really low and Meyer is trying to help explain that.

HUDL videos seem more for fans than coaches anyway. If you edit out 95% or more of the plays and only focus on the really good ones, even average athletes look like studs.

1977 Monza with a small block V8 in it. I didn't have it long enough to have to change spark plugs, but one of my neighbors who worked for GM said you had to partially pull the engine in order to replace the back two plugs.

Baumgardner had an excellent editorial on the topic on Mlive where he contrasts Delany's passivity with his SEC counterparts:
League members expressed concern over an issue -- regardless of how legitimate that concern was (in this case, it wasn't) -- and the SEC's power players went to bat for them. They did it again this winter when Harbaugh announced his plans to take Michigan to Florida for spring break.
And, again, same thing. Sankey slammed the table for days over the issue. Did his arguments always make sense? No, not really. But he stood up and fought for his league, just like he did in the satellite camp saga.
Delany? The only time he really ever touched on the topic came a year ago this month, when he made a claim that the NCAA has bigger fish to fry than satellite camps. Point taken. Point ended.

Yes, I was treated like crap, but I've now been made aware that at Ohio State they prize crap, even keep it in coolers to keep it fresh. So thank you coach UM for treating me so well and please accept my apology for not understanding the high esteem with which you hold crap at your we ain't come to play school.
