...in the NFL, he is going to have to become aware of how his statements and actions will be viewed in the media.
If he wants to run the NFL, I think he will be just fine.

...the Ravens deserve any awards for ethical leadership. After seeing the video, a longer suspension was inevitable. Waiving him rather than waiting for a suspension is just optics.

...to know what has changed since this article was published in 2011. Based on what is described here, it would be hard to argue that the benefits of staying in D1/FBS/Whatever outweight the financial costs.

...ND is a better analog. They struggled for nearly a decade under Weis and Willingham, suffered many on and off field embarrassements, and have similar academic standards and regional disadvantages as we do. The difference I guess is the tolerance of the ND fan base, who seem better able to to accept a 9-4 season without mistaking it for the end of the program.

...And make him sit out a single game against a App State. That'd learn him.
Which is just to say: What none military academy actually treats DUIs seriously?

...your cynicism goes across all sports. It would be pretty irrational if you believed that doping was rife only in those with the strictest, most sophisticated and expensive controls, while a sport with plenthy of incentives to cheat and virtually no meaningful testing (and thus no positives), is totally clean.
Just as an example: imagine an amateur/college sport, where testing is done with advance notice, is wildly underfunded, and regimes are designed to look for easy to find recreational drugs rather than harder to detect PEDs that are nonetheless known to be in wide use... Imagine that sport is one in which player size, strength and speed have made huge increases over the last decade that can't be attributed to just changes in training or nutrition.
I'm not trying to criticize that hypothetical sport, but just test your statement. Would that really be better?

...what little Richie Porte can put together now that he is relieved of his role as super domestique. He's a strong climber and not slouch at TT - I wouldn't expect him to win but I think he has top 5 potential.

... many B1G schools already have beer and wine in their luxury suites. That move seems easy, and without difficult pr issues for the administration folks that have to walk a tightrope between appearing lax on alchohol consumption on campus or looking like losers in an early 20th century temperance arguement. These same perception issues probably mean that a cordoned off area like Purdue's is the only way this could happen in a campus facility, but I wish there could be a more adult approach. What percentage of the under 40 years olds entering the stadium haven't had anything to drink?

...about Brandon's various strategies for increasing revenue by making changes to the stadium and gameday experience, I was asking if anyone here would object. I honestly can't imagine why anyone would, but since folks are so negative about anything the AD touches I wouldn't be surprised if some fraction of the fan base came out against the combination of football and beer...
|10 weeks 22 hours ago||Would anyone object...||

...it goes better than that one. The last thing Coach Hoke needs is to start his first post-game press conference of the season explaining why our offense accidentally blew up a mental hospital.

...for to recover that $500K in the salaries of grounds crew folks that won't be employed to maintain the field anymore.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Exactly.||
Until they obey all the laws of the road, treat others courteously, pay their share of road maintenance costs and recognize that they aren't the center of the world, they need to stay at home and off the road.
Wait - I was talking about drivers... what were you talking about?
