Eh, so ban them. The NCAA won't vote on it until after we've done ours and everyone will do them next year anyways. This way, we're the only program that ever gets the benefit of it.

I'm  loving every minute of it.

Instead of following the crowd, we are pushing the envelope and saying why not. Keep up with Michigan or we'll leave you behind in our dust!

This is the best Michigan innovation since "the winged helmet" to help identify pass receivers downfield.

Remote summer camps! Remote spring break practice! I can't wait to find out what's next? Does anybody else have it better than us right now?

In the meantime Harbaugh and Michigan are on the lips of coaches, conference commissioners ........and more importantly........recruits!

Fuck everyone.

I want us to do what we do and do it ourself.

After we do these spring practices, we will then go set fire to all the campuses that don't support us.  

Sweet dreams, pusscakes.

I'm looking forward to hearing from Larry Scott and Bowlsby. Particularly Scott, since next year we could conceivably run a spring practice at Crenshaw or De La Salle.

Oh wait, this isn't a real thing, so nobody cares. These craven commissioners only pretend to care when they are getting pressured by coaches and ADs who are immediately threatened (I'm looking at you FSU, YTM, and UF).

That kind of pictures the ACC as that little kid on the playground who only acts tough when the big kid is standing in front of him. It's almost like they waited to let the big, bad SEC speak first and then said "yeah, what he said!"

Special note: I was always that little kid on the playground, so maybe I just picture everybody like that.

“It is creative,” Swofford told the show. “It’s kind of like we’re going to take you on vacation but you’ve got to practice while we’re on vacation … it’s a huge intrusion on a college student’s life and taking his ability to have a break out of his hands. I guess it depends on how you look at it.”

So, he's essentially redressing Sankey's argument. OK.

The players that have mentioned it on social media seem to be in favor of it - emphatically so in some cases - so yeah, this is such an intrusion into their time that they would willingly spend working on football. Yes, it definitely depends on how you look at it, I guess.
