This won't get passed. Way too late and Delany already mentioned on the stand that his opinion on improving scholarships and redcing practice time was in the low minority.. This doesn't really help the NCAA's case anyway since the trial is more about Name, Image, and Likeness rights in television and NCAA endorsements/contracts and not the value of a D1 scholarship.
What interests me is: would this not constitute as a competitive advantage for the (allegedly) few schools that the NCAA says can actually afford to do this? Assuming that this isn't just a Big Ten thing, wouldn't this throw a wrench in the NCAA's "We can't pay players because most of us can't afford to" defense, especially when they just had a a guy from the Conference USA on the stand yesterday who said this:
So how can the NCAA make a defense that one of the reasons they can't pay players is that they just can't afford to, yet vote to approve a proposal like this that will raise the average cost per player for every single sport immensly for every D1 university?
Like I said, this won't get passed.

1.) But Google isn't forfeiting substantial chunks of it's annual revenue and openly debating about cutting back its research and development budget just to keep GM afloat. Again, you are comparing the NCAA to other, more competitive job industries.
2.) Many schools have funded rowing teams, swimming teams, polo teams, and plenty of other niche sports for decades, long before basketball and football were even sports, much less the two multibillion dollar cash cows they are today. I don't buy that taking a percentage out of the two largest revenue sports to compensate the players in those two sports will negatively affect any of the other sports.
3.) Not to be a dick about it, but so what? The mail guy doesn't make the same amount of money as an account executive and it would be silly to suggest that he should. There is already a massive discrepancy between the revenue from football & basketball and the revenue of all of the other sports combined, so why should schools keep pretending that they are worth the same and they don't treat them differently? I would bet my future life savings that right now, Nick Saban makes more money than every other head coach in Alabama's athletic department combined.

|6 weeks 6 days ago||It's the same reason people||
The thing is, you can't really compare the NFL and the NCAA to any other job industry as they are both essentially monopolies. If you want to play football straight out of high school, you have three options: college, CFL, or Arena League.
To compare this to a job industry, the NCAA would be like an dangerous and extremely risky 3-4 year unpaid internship in another country with high upside and high downside with thousands of additional competing applicants every year, while the CFL/Arena League are two generic, go-nowhere, minimum wage jobs with very few openings every year. This is obviously not a good job market.
My issue here is this: while the football/basketball athletes do get some tangible benifits like yearly scholarships, some amount of free meals, and housing, they also have to watch other people profit off of their likeliness while not only recieving jack shit for it in return, but being punished for trying to do the same shit that the NCAA is doing. Johnny Manziel might be a tool, but there is absolutely NO REASON why he shoyuldn't be able to charge some money to sell his own damn autograph on the back of jersey with his number on the back of it that was just bought from Texas A&M's apparel store. Factor that in with the questionable handling of scholarships for injured players and I see no reason why the players should not at the very least have someone fighting for their rights in such an unbalanced and gated market.

I have a feeling that Dany would be in for quite a brutal shock if she or her advisors truly expect a warm welcome in Westeros. The show has very lightly touched upon this (i.e. Cersei's line about every time a Targaryen is/was born, the gods flipped a coin to determine whether they would be sane or crazy), but the Mad King was not the first psychotic Targaryen ruler. He just lived the longest and happened to piss off all of the wrong houses.
The North still hates the Targaryens for what they did to Ned's father and brother, the former Warden of the North and first heir to the Warden of the North, as Ned was a second son.
The East would most likely rally behind Stannis and the Lords of the Vale, as much of Dragonstone is now for the Baratheons.
The West would rally in favor of the Crown, being Lannister controlled territory. Yeah, they aren't the most popular, but gold wins wars and as long as everyone believes the Lannisters are still absurdly wealthy, they still hold power.
The South would be split. The Tyrells would declare for the king and queen, while Dorne is the wildcard. On one hand, they hate the Lannisters as much as anyone and were loyal to the Targaryens during Robert's Rebellion. On the other hand, if they were offered a seat on the small counsel and, should anything happen to Tommen, Myrcella would become quite valuable as the sole heir to the Iron Throne.
And yes, as a book reader I went out of my way to ensure that no future plot details are spoiled/hinted at for this post. This is strictly show stuff, with some history thrown in.

To me, Sammy Watkins is probably the most likely guy to make an impact in year 1 & 2 if he gets drafted by he Lions, given how often they throw the ball (which probably will not change all that much).

bullying at age 10 =/= bullying at age 25
These are grown ass men who are harrassing you. Your boss is joining in. How well do you think running to inform the higher authority would actually go in this situation?
Have you ever been bullied? It's not an easy situation to deal with, especially if you haven't really been in it before.
Let's say Martin fights back. The NFL is his livelihood, his Masters degree, his dream, which means he needs to be healthy to play. Let's say he gets into a fist fight with a (presumably) drunken and now hyper aggressive 300 some odd pound Icognito, who is apparently widely known amogst his teammates by an alter ego "Tornado" when he is plastered drunk (always a good sign of mental health). The odds are skewed heavily that he gets injured and misses practice, or worse, games, or worse, the rest of the season, or worse, gets sent to the hospital with a career ending injury.
But let's say that he doesn't get injured. Now you have pissed off said racist alcoholic by getting into a fist fight. Does the taunting magically stop? Maybe, but I would doubt it, since Icognito isnt a 10 year old fat kid. No, he is a grown ass man. My money is it gets worse and possibly more physical and hostile, since, unlike a 10 year old, he has been doing this for MOST OF HIS LIFE.
Okay, so what if he runs and tells the doplhins leadership. Well, his position coach participated in it and even sent him texts asking him to, essentially, recant his story to protect the bully and the coach. So that rules that out.
What about the Head Coach? A lot of help he was, since he denied all knowledge of anything ever happening in his organization, despite being the HEAD FUCKING COACH. There are no records or indications at all that Philbin noticed or did anything about this. So that rules that out.
Sure, he could try contacting the owner (and maybe he did). have you ever tried to get a hold of a large business owner or a CEO directly? You don't. you talk to a hundred different middle men and women until you get told no because you aren't an investor or a well connected stockholder. So my guess is that the owner would not have been any help.
Point is: Martin should never have had to tell them to shut the fuck up and I don't blame Martin one bit for telling the dolphins to fuck off and walking away.
And, yes, I have been mercilessly bullied by people who I had once called my friends and classmates, to the point where I developed a death wish and needed to see a therapist in order to deal with it. This absolutely skews my opinions on the matter, but I also went out of my way to read the reports and follow the story before posting on this topic, and it seems very clear to me that Incognito and Pouncey are both terrible, irredeemable people who went far beyond "inappropriate joking and harmless ribbing" and into full blown sadism.

I don' know about you but 7 of the last 10 Super Bowls were one score games, including the last three and four of the last five and even that game was a one score game until the final minutes.

So, I wonder what is so different about the athletes getting screwed over in *this* class?

He and his teammates committed several major NCAA violations. Those violations cost the school two final four appearances and cratered the program for 15+ years. Therefore, many at the school are probably not 100% enthused with associating the current program with the people who destroyed it.

|26 weeks 5 days ago||I found this data to be||
I found this data to be surprisingly relevant:
Year l Class Size l AVG STAR l Class Ranking l AVG STAR Rank
2012 25 3.56 7 9
2013 27 3.63 5 7
2014 16 3.44 27 13
If you sort by AVG STARS, then Michigan is #13, right below #31 USC and #4 FSU, yet above #12 Clemson and #10 Miami. If you look at the four teams above us with a similar class size (LSU (#6, 18), Georgia (#11, 17), UCLA (#16, 17), and USC (#31, 15)), you will notice that only USC has less recruits (by a margin of one) and is ranked below us in the overall rankings, despite having a higher AVG STAR rating (3.53 to Michigan's 3.44).
My point here being that Rivals tends to use some crazy hybrid of quality and quantity to determine team rankings and difference in class size tends throw wrenches in whatever method they use, be it a formula or just gut feeling. This would explain why Miami and UCLA's 2012 classes (33 and 26 recruits, respectively) were both top 15 classes to them, despite being the only two with an AVG STAR ranking of < 3.4, wheras most of the others were in the 3.5-3.7 range.
All this data says to me is that Rivals has won the MGoBlog annual "Worst Recruiting Service in the History of Recruiting of the Year" award. (That was a joke, btw)
TL;DR, We are not Alabama. Michigan does not oversign, nor do they engage in creative roster management tactics like phony medical scholarships and JuCo farm systems, nor have they had many Junior players on the roster that were projected to be draft picks. Therefore, Michigan will not recruit ~25 players every class.
Michigan's class, while down this year, is still a pretty good class and the "bad overall ranking" can be easily attributed to bringing in loaded classes the previous two years and whatever method Rivals uses to solve the class size differental problem.

It really depends on what playstyle you were initially aiming for. Unfortuantely, Skyrim still isn't quite balanced as far as what classes really work. Playing a spellcaster, I would tear through random hostiles in one or two hits but the second I meet another spellcaster with magic resistance, it was game over.
I have it on my PC now, and was told to try playing as a tough melee class and my god, it is so flippin easy. Just make health and stamina potions and mine stuff to create your own armor and weapons and the game is so much of a cake walk that I can't even bring myself to finish it.
The good news is you can always level those other skills. The bad news is you will never get those "wasted" perks back unless you are playing on PC.

But he has received so much unwarranted media attention that there are tens of millions of people who have never even met the guy in passing who absolutely loathe him.

Why not Baltimore? Why not the Colts? Why not the Patriots? Why not any other franchise but the one team that can say they have suffered as much if not MORE than the Lions?

Should also add that the NFL, more so than any other sports league, is a "win now" league in terms of culture. Considering how much value is put on having a "Franchise QB" and time investment for drafting and grooming a rookie QB (who is more likely to flame out completely than become even a middle of the road starter), locking up even an average guy like Cutler is probably the smart move and as someone said earlier, there are several ways for GMs to manipulate contracts and personnel to stay under the cap.

Upvoted you, but I'll clarify. I wasn't ignoring that accomplishment as much as I acknowledged it and dismissed the level of its importance. Yeah, an 11 win season at Rutgers is something of an accomplishment. It's nice, but there is that popular phrase around here that even a blind squirrel finds a nut. Where did he take the program since then? Nowhere, really. They hovered around the top of the middle third of the Big East for a few more years, never finished a season ranked since, and ultimately showed no signs of progression before he lucked into a pro job in Tampa, where he has spent the last two years making a complete ass out of himself to other players and coaches and has brought an attitude that had turned nearly his entire team against him during training camp of this year

I know that is the rumor going around, but that would not be good for PSU if even half of the things the have been written about him and his attitude in the past two years are true. I don't know him personally, but he sounds like a control freak, "in your face" type of coach, which isn't what PSU needs when the university is still trying to rebuild good will with the national public.
Plus, I know it's Rutgers and all, but he wasn't even that great of a coach there. He never won a Big East championship, his only double digit win season came 6 years before he bailed to coach Tampa Bay, and the year before he left Rutgers, they went 4-8.

I don't think this is a plausible scenario. One or two teams usually do not boost the conference perception as a whole. See: FSU, Clemson, & the ACC and Louisville & the AAC.
From a reccruiting standpoint, MSU winning would not help Michigan or any of the other Big Ten teams at all and I know the OP is well aware of that.
Now, MSU winning can't hurt the public perception of the Big Ten, but what would help everyone out is if more Big Ten teams actually made some bowl games and then won said bowl games. The conference needs more good coaches, plain and simple, and the only way to get them is to actually spend some of that revenue that the Big Ten is dishing out to them, cause Indiana and Iowa are each one good coordinator away from being 9-10 win teams, easy.

I'm just saying to the OP that it's probably not worth the many potential hassles to bring an infant to a loud sporting event when she's not even able to comrehend what is going on around her and it seems like many other posters are in agreement.

And I know that you are supposed to throw it in a garbage can, but in my experience in sitting around parents with infants (which is admittedly not that much), most of those parents didn't bother to get up and walk away from the 'movie/sporting event/whatever-is-entertaining-them-at-the-moment and just stashed them in a bag.
Not saying this person is the type to do that, but I'm just going off of a few experiences of being stuck in close proximity of parents with infants.

If you really have to go, I would try a babysitter. Otherwise, I would just wait until they are old enough to walk and talk a bit and hopefully they can understand what is going on around them. It sucks, but that's parenthood.

Sometimes circumstances dictate that things will not pan out the way we want them to. This is pure speculation here (like insulating that the coaches CHOSE not to take a QB in 2012) but I would most likely say that, given how the staff has said since they were hired that they want one QB in every class, no one wanted to commit to Michigan to be a backup to a five star QB coming in the next class. Devin was a WR, Denard was a senior, and Russ was a lightly recruited QB. Once Shane committed, it was pretty clear *at the time* who the staff was planning to lead the team in 2013.
