If by "the right way" you mean cheating less than Kentucky and Kansas, then, yes, sure. But you're fooled if you think they're actually clean.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Currently I turn off||
Currently I turn off notifications before the end of any game I don't want spoiled, and then turn them back on after I've watched. Which is annoying. So I'm in favor of this request.
|1 week 1 day ago||Honestly I was expecting||
Honestly I was expecting worse. So they want to treat people well at the games. So they want to amplify the band. In spirit, the things they're talking about in this article are not nearly as bad as what ol' Lochdogg was cooking up.

Disagree on MSU basketball. It will be dependent on who they hire after Izzo.

Disagree on Crable. It was a very questionable call.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Nah...the only coaches "good||
Nah...the only coaches "good enough" for pro offers will be the ones coming from programs that can afford this. Coaches that aren't good enough to resist pay decreases will not be in the NFL market.

Don't be ridiculous.

Harbaugh is a sophisticated football robot sent back through time to change the future for one lucky fanbase.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||OSU Harbaughed their way to victory in another way too.||
Harbaugh was cheering for OSU, so of course they won.
If he had cheered for Oregon, obviously they would have won.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||That approach had its pratfalls as well...||
Yoinking Anderson away from Stanford (while also having Durkin in the boat) sounded ridiculous to common sense, and thus to Brian (and to me), while Rivals was in fact correct when it reported that he was being pursued well in advance of anyone else.
But I think overall, it stems from the point Brian made about being able to comment on and "judge" the insiders. Since nobody else was doing that in general (but strictly reporting their own sources), nobody else had that platform to combine common sense.
The other point I'd like to make is that, as always, I'm not sure we can take certain outlandish reports as proof that common sense was not applied. Maybe news such as Sean Payton was proactively reported so as to benefit Harbaugh. One must always consider the agenda, which may not always be clear at the time.

Damn, the failure to lure Cutcliffe strikes again. Would have been a lock!

Well, I can certainly agree with the Voltron sentiment.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I would like to point out||
I would like to point out that Flight Aware is the new real estate stalking, not the other way around. Real estate stalking has been around for years, bro. Now get off my lawn.

How dare you besmirch the good name of porn like that.

This. Apparently this guy is a high school friend of Jim's.

So, a short story then?

Good call....members never troll other members here.
I almost finished typing that with a straight face...
(To be clear, though, I'm a huge fan of this site and pay real $ in beveled guilt, so not a slam on this site at all, just the wrong point of differentiation)

Get well, Ace.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Um, no, but continuing access||
Um, no, but continuing access to inside information does. Do you think he'd continue to be relied upon with such info if he blew it out inappropriately?
|13 weeks 4 days ago||What exactly about his track||
What exactly about his track record in the NFL says "failed" to you?
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Because the interest level||
Because the interest level among top prospects is through the roof relative to prior classes. It's one thing to be pessimistic about who we actually land but it's misinformed or wrong to question why people are thinking big about the possibilities in 2016.

Mr. Brandon might not read blogs, but the NYT does!

Dunno that he was an asshole, but he certainly ran a looser ship than Bo would have preferred.
|18 weeks 4 days ago||As far as the NCAA is||
As far as the NCAA is concerned, Webber was in fact the only Fab Five member to break the rules. So your point is invalid. Nobody in this thread is talking about Taylor, Traylor, or Bullock.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Not to mention...if we don't||
Not to mention...if we don't want to raise ticket prices, don't want to commercialize everything the department does (e.g. Chobani tweets), AND don't want to provide name sponsor opportunities...then like it or not, we will begin to fall behind other programs. We need at least some of that funding to keep up with the Jones' I would have to think.

Hmmm. Simply the fact that it appears he has the rope to try to change the student relationship...leads me to believe that there's a good chance he doesn't get fired. Schlissel may be giving him one more chance.

Green LEDs are a big deal. I guess that explains why in the damn world we'd have lit the word "VICTORS" in that color.
