It does happen but it's what you do about it that matters. He shouldn't have played since. They might not have been able to take his schollie away but they could have stopped him from being on field, on TV, representing the institution. Because he was the best short range kicker.

Funny.. not so much. Upset at my university for sheltering an accused, then kicked out, rapist. Yes. For football. For winning. I'm beyond ashamed. And I'd like to believe all of you are, too.

Didn't Petrino have a restaurant fling a few years back too? Nice to know UL is cool with this type of behavior.

Seattle is awesome. Beautiful, laid back, with fairly reasonable people. After spending some time there during the football season -- and seeing their fan support & loyalty -- it makes sense. Not to mention their newly updated stadium, which is AMAZING.
U-M's fans are a lot like USC, Miami, Texas, SEC's of the world in that we expect excellence and when we don't get it quickly enough, a lot of us go nuclear.
I can see why he would turn us or USC down but not UW.

So Brady really thinks it's all the kids fault for not executing..

I like DB.. or I really try to like him.. or maybe I kinda don't anymore. Either way, I love how he infers his apathy towards the possible sea of 'red' at the stadium on Sat. It's pretty safe to say it wasn't his intention -- but with his support of the commoditization of College athletics, it comes off smelling like "I don't care who's really there, we're making money. That's good for MICHIGAN."

Now, time for cake.

hey, i get you don't like all the negativity towards the coaches. cool, admirable even. but addressing it with counter negative posts is even more depressing.
keep doing what you want -- but keep in mind, blaming a college fb player, a kid, for everything is classless. his coaches are responsible for preparing him and deciding if he should go out there and play. and if not, it's their job to have a no. 2 at the ready.

I like Miami so I'm a bit biased here. But after the ncaa bumbled the investigation and their main informant being a jaded individual who knowingly enticed poor kids with cash (all while trying to feel cool), I detest the latters way more than the former.
Coaches get paid the huge bucks, especially at public universities. Maybe it's just good enough to strip them of their ability to make a living than to punish kids who took no part in the deed.

I love y'all but the latest defeatism on this board is beyond me. College football awesome and we all miss U-M football when it isn't on. There's only so many opportunities to watch.. win or lose, might as well enjoy it while we can.

Three Days! Honestly happy it took this long for it to pop-up.

All the "This is Michigan" stuff sounds awesome.. but it does add a ton of weight to someone who truly believes it. Add all of the interviews, 98 hoopla, and self driven pressure of the position I can see it getting to someone. Especially a person who seems to really appreciate and honor the signifigance of everything, like Gardner. Talking to a sports therapist might be good.. and whether injured or not, I think he'll be fine.
He's a young, smart dude. Smart people tend to figure stuff out.

I like Fitz but I think Al Golden is a better snag & fit for either school. He's been loyal to Miami.. so far.

I undertand the angst but I don't think advertising is bad. It makes U-M money and it's outside of the stadium anyhows. But to each their own.
Now, tin foil hat time: Know what Dave Brandon's shift at Domino's & Kraft Mac & Cheese have in common? CP+B (crispin porter + bogusky). Dollars to donuts, that's why it's there.

Fit & finish wise, looks like Adidas has the unis under control. Lots of M's, though.

But I'm a little put off that Gardner used "ridiculous" rather than "ridonkulous".

Please please please name it Domino's Arena. That would be the sweetest poetry.
|44 weeks 4 days ago||I like the logo composition||
I like the logo composition overall, but the "Victors" font -- with its varying thickness in letters -- is a bit complicated. They also need to put some spacing in between the letters of "MICHIGAN". Way too tight.
But what do I know.. I was only trained in the M A&D art school.

Snarking a kid for being immature makes my head wanna asplode. Maybe it's time to turn that cap around and stop calling kids a douche and a chode.

MIA and FSU don't hate each other and there's more history there than FSU/UF (that series really came on when Spurrier landed as coach). Both programs do hate UF with a passion, though.

I really like the first concept, but notice how they slip in the second one at the end? The easier to build one?
That one will prolly be the one they build -- hope not, but cheaper + easier usually wins the day.
