It's actually pretty relevant, he's making the point to his alumni that the chapter has been functioning well until this huge failure. He'd already made the point that he apologized, multiple times, to the people that needed apologies. It's a good letter for what it is for, which is not MGOBLOG. I would actually not be to pleased with the OP if I was i was the originator of the message or a member of SAM. But as a person who frequents them gobo are, I am quite happy.

But it generally sets them back by the numbers, they can't rush. No alumni donations or events, which makes alumni lose contact sometimes forever. And loss of many traditions, which can be good and is usually the hope of the school. A one year suspension is light, when Sig Eps were booted in the mid 90s it was for four years to try and get all the actives off campus. Many times a lot of the active members can not be part of the fraternity when it is reestablished.

But you have to admit that compared to the recruiting hype they get, Cass Tech players tend to underperform in college. At least over the last ten years.

The Nats have a strong bullpen and will handle it better then the Tigers.

But I am not sure he would have gotten any better. He showed little improvement while at Michigan and I am not sure he would have gotten much better his junior or senior year. Unless he really got better, his draft stock would have fallen. Unfortunately, I am not certain GRIII ever would have been a good NBA player, the right decision for him may have been one and done so he would have been drafted on potential.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Joking, right||
You have to be joking right? The NBA drafts players that are not ready all the time. In fact, that is almost the only thing the NBA drafts. They draft completely on perceived potential and hope for the best. In fact, if you are actually ready for the NBA, chances are your draft stock will fall because the perception will be you don't have that much more room for improvement.

He will certainly be making more than the average person, but it will almost certainly be league minimum. And let's be honest, as a late round pick there is a real good chance he is out of the league in a year or two. The NFL does not like to use roster spots for developmental projects, and if there is a coaching change on the team that drafts him, he will almost certainly be gone.
He is likely to make more by going now, I'll grant you that. But I don't think he is going to make a lot of money on his NFL venture. In fact, this may be a case where s degree would get him more money over his lifetime.

The priority points needed almost has to go up every year, especially if the same donors want to stay in the same lot. Those that donate at this level are giving more each year above the PSL donation. Therefore, you would expect this number to increase every year to encourage those to continue to give every year. I would be shocked if they did not rise every year, can't start to let the rif raf in.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I think the opposite||
If his last name was not Harbaugh, everyone would say welcome and this seems like a reasonable move. Again, going from being an offensive QC coach in the NFL for three years to a position coach for TEs in college is not an unreasonable leap. I am betting it is a good hire.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Actually no||
Actually, no its not. That is the exact defintion of nepotism. It is possible to hire a relative and it be a good hire, but it is still technically nepotism.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Super Bowl rings||
Just a reminder, Jay does have more Super Bowl rings working as part of an offensive coaching staff than anyone on this board that is criticizing him. Just something to keep in mind.
Well, okay, I guess I am assuming Bill Belichek is not trolling the boards to crush the Jay Harbaugh hire. Sorry if I am wrong on that.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Unreasonable||
When you've got the point of questioning who the TE coach is, you've become unreasonable. Unless he is a convicted murderer or something.
This actually seems legit to me. If his last name was not Harbaugh people would be fine with it. Going from a QC coach in the NFL to a position coach in college seems like a normal move in a coaching career. Let's all relax a bit here.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Interesting||
He says they have not even discussed looking for a new AD yet. That and the way he wants to talk to Hackett about the future of the Department and the way Hackett talks about what he will do next year sounds a lot like its Hackett's job, but nobody wants to say so yet. Also the reports of Hackett getting ready to start the bidding for the next gear sponsorship contract.

Knee injuries are generally far less detrimental to the long term prospects of a lineman. At least when compared to a RB or a WR who depends on pure speed.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Sure||
If you are a guaranteed first rounder, I agree. But he is not. And once you start falling bad things happen. If you are a third rounder and have a rough camp a team is much more likely to cut you. Plus, the average NFL player does not make it out of his rookie contract. He is much smarter to stay and turn himself into a high first rounder.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Good for him||
While I hate to see State return such a good player, I do like to see young men making smart decisions. And this was a smart decision.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Exactly||
The head coach matters much more than the coordinator.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||All football is deception||
Nobody lines up and tells the other side what they are going to run. Harbaugh was pissed they had not seen it before. This is a move that once it is on tape, it's not that effective anymore. John Harbaugh knows they were out thought by a unique way of lining up, that had they prepared for it they could have destroyed.

And with that, every Michigan fan suddenly wants nothing to do with Beats by Dre or their investor Lebron.
|3 weeks 12 hours ago||The point||
The point is the NCAA suspends people for all kinds of things that don't give a competitive advantage, not that those things are all equal. If, as the poster implies, the NCAA only looked at competitive advantage being gained then you could get away with a lot and still be eligible. But the NCAA prefers their players to not break the law, much like the NFL. And it is the law, even if it is unpopular.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||Competitive advantage?||
There is no competitive advantage to flunking school or domestic violence, maybe the NCAA should allow that as well.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||YES||
This could be exactly what I need to cut the cord. Sports programming is the only thing keeping me, and many others, with cable. It's why cable companies pay ESPN more than tenfold what they pay any other basic cable channel.
If only ESPN and BTN would just allow you to subscribe straight to their programming, though I suspect this would be a financial killer. I am also quite interested to see how much some of the conferences are getting from their networks in ten years. I suspect they have about reached the peak and could face a dramatic decline.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||This is overblown||
It's not like there is a handshake line. Most players just use that time to talk to opposing players they know, not go shake hands with all the opposing players.

This is a poorly written article with one persons tweets as evidence. No information on how many cars were vandalized or the motives. Is it possible that those players whose cars were vandalized may have had some enemies for reasons other than just a fan reaction to the game? Is it possible they were just randomly vandalized? Let's not throw an entire fan base under the bus based on such limited information. Well, at least don't throw them under the bus for this specific accusation.
|4 weeks 22 hours ago||True, but||
You are comparing it to a national championship year with Tebow. It was fairly minor drop off from a peak year, plus they lost some talent from that team.
|4 weeks 22 hours ago||You are right||
I should have asked how losing a coordinator impacts coaches who suck. My bad.
|4 weeks 23 hours ago||Legitimate question||
When was the last time a coordinator left a successful coach and it actually had an impact. I suspect little to no drop off, other than what would be expected from personnel changes.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||As I say||
I am rooting for the Big Ten, not Ohio State. I just have to keep telling myself that.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||The one problem||
Is that in the pros you can run thread option and theoretically keep your QB for a decade or more. Going read option this year with Miller means a commitment to that style offense to some degree, and he does not have the QBs to run that in the future. Plus, they don't run much of that in SF anymore.
Also, this is the guy that turned Alex Smith from a huge bust into a legit NFL starter, I suspect he might do well with Morris and Speight.

They make more money on PPV then they could have dreamed of on the networks, that is why they changed.
