You know you're a boss when you're the Boss's boss. Happy bday to the boss.

They just added Miami and Arizona State, so it doesn't seem they are exiting the business.
I wonder if every time they lose one, it will make them that much more desperate to keep Michigan.

Your coping mechanism is awfully thinly veiled. Your shrink should be embarrassed.

Those shorts are quite possibly the worst thing I've ever seen.

I don't know exactly what Brown is looking for academically (because there's no way he's not in the NBA after one year), but...for everyone who thinks people that are serious about academics are only going to choose the top ranked school: there is a ton that goes into what "academics" means to a student. It might mean the most/best academic support. It might mean studying a certain major that Michigan doesn't offer, or that, frankly, a college they wouldn't be able to be accepted into.
You would think after Myron Rolle Michigan fans would get off the high horse about academics.
It's one thing to hope that someone serious about academics would choose Michigan. It's another entirely to feel jaded that students serious about academics don't choose us.

While this is certainly a helpful message, I invite folks to also consider a donation to fight cancer, or another cause you feel strongly about.

I'm cool with this so long as the movie / book don't make Michigan out to be the bad guy.

I agree with this in the same way that it would have been Shaq's fault if the Lakers lost a game by 1 point where he missed a late free throw, after putting up 34 points and 17 rebounds.

Yeah...it's definitely everybody else's fault that your take is off base.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Harbaugh is a sophisticated football robot sent back through time to change the future for one lucky fanbase.

Harbaugh was cheering for OSU, so of course they won.
If he had cheered for Oregon, obviously they would have won.
|14 weeks 4 days 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.
