I wish Rocco's dad was still on the radio.  He was entertaining.  I liked him.

Nah, they just use state of Michigan aircraft.

I disagree with you about Peters.  John O'Korn, however...

I cracked up when he said that.

Yes.

I totally agree.  It's why the BTN sucks.  Wouldn't be any harm, though, in describing exactly how facilities help in recruiting. 

Put some pressure on those schools to spend some of that BTN money on the revenue generating sport, rather than spending it on sports that don't even draw 1,000 fans for home games.

12/10/2018 - 2:16pm Not sure where you got your…

Not sure where you got your info on rent.  My kid has an apartment in mid-town (an older, but nice apartment; nice area) for $900/month.  

Furthermore, comparing a rebuilding project to some of the nicest cities in the country (as well as GR & AA, some of the nicest cities in the state) is epitome of apples and oranges. 

You made some valid points: cost of insurance and looming Big3 layoffs.  Bringing up Detroit corruption when you've already compared Detroit to Chicago is laughable.  Show me a large city without corruption.  I'll just wait.  Go ahead.   

Your OP doesn't sound optimistic.  It doesn't even sound objective.  It sounds biased and elitist.

I, myself, am admittedly biased, though. Obviously.  Lol.

If what one school can pay a kid is equal to what every other school can pay that kid, the under-the-table stuff will still exist.  

It's the off the books payments that will give shady teams a leg up (all other things being mostly equal).

fools?  stupidity?  Maybe you need to lighten up, Francis.

I never said it would level the field for Michigan.  I was speaking about the problem and possible solutions in more general terms.  In fact, I essentially agreed with you.  I said that the under-the-table payments would still exist (still giving an advantage to those teams who are more inclined to break the rules).

Do better.

11/29/2018 - 2:19pm I'm for paying players, but…

I'm for paying players, but paying them or letting them make money off of endorsements won't change the current under-the-table payment of players. 

That system would still exist as additional compensation. I'm not sure it's possible to remove that aspect of college sports (short of making every graduating HS player a free agent for the highest bidder).  

 

11/29/2018 - 10:49am This is close to what I've…

This is close to what I've been saying for a couple of years now. 

This was my version:

Get rid of the B12.  Condense the best 64 teams into 4 conferences, each with two divisions (yes, ND has to join a conference...or they can go fuck themselves).  Teams 65 and below never had a chance anyway.

This gives you 8 division champions (or playoff teams).

Conference championships are the first round.  

After that, you can take the conference championships and draw 'em out of a hat for all I care.  That's your semi-final matchup, etc.

11/29/2018 - 10:45am Unless there's a central…

Unless there's a central organization in charge of scheduling (mostly) equal non-conference games, you'll have teams loading up on cupcakes, which will make their record look better.  And that brings me back to my point about who's ranking these teams.

It's just too big of an advantage to let a college team sit out a week, resting & healing, while two other teams play a high leverage game (possibly in terrible weather conditions) against each other.  

11/29/2018 - 9:51am Any format that includes…

Any format that includes teams getting a bye week would be a non-starter for me.  Too advantageous for those teams who are (or I'm assuming would be) picked by the same stupid process we have had and currently have.

I love the idea of playing the first round on campus.  I'd love to see some of those SEC teams come up north and play in the cold in December.

10/24/2018 - 11:33am Dude.  Your punishments are…

Dude.  Your punishments are way too severe.  Did you give any consideration to how bad the people are who are making these calls?  They can't even make the call right now and the punishment is only 1/2 a game.  You want them to make the same calls and it could cost a whole game.  

I'm not down.

10/24/2018 - 11:24am I still think the bigger…

I still think the bigger issue is that the players who passed by Marshall & Bush could've released their arms, passed by those two, then rejoined their arms and continued on their walk.  Nothing would've happened.  

That's what the guys who past Hudson did.  There was no issue on that part of the field.  It was the fake tough guys passing by Marshall & Bush that wouldn't let their arms go to get around a guy who was (right or wrong) clearly in their way.  WTF did they think was going to happen?  

That would've avoided the whole mess.

He didn't lie.  He just said - this is the lie coach D told reporters.

Just to nitpick a little here.  I appreciate the post and the link.  It'd be nice if you could include some context of exactly what the fuck they said in the article too.  

Okay.  Thanks.  

Now get off my fucking lawn.

I also grew up listening to Ernie Harwell and feel extremely fortunate to have someone like Dan Dickerson follow in Ernie's footsteps.  I'm not sure many fan-bases have been so lucky.

However, we'll have to agree to disagree on Price.  That's all I've got to say about that.

I love Gibby, but he's so monotone anymore that it's hard to listen to.  His voice is like nails on a chalkboard to my wife.  Thankfully, since they're so bad, I don't watch many games lately.  

09/06/2018 - 11:00am I've never heard someone say…

I've never heard someone say they like the job Jim Price does analyzing games.  I personally can't stand it.  Catchers are brilliant.  Tigers can't hardly make a mistake.  He's horrible.

I bet he's also a real "student of the game", "another coach on the field" or "heady" qb.

"We're going to play 13 games and your travel partner twice, which would be Western Kentucky for us," said D'Antoni. "Then they are going to seed the schools. If you finish in the top five, No. 1 through No. 5 will play each other for the next four games to get 18 games.

 

Since when is MSU's football coach involved with CUSA basketball schedules?

No offense to your friend, but based on NCAA Compliance's track record, he and his co-workers are bad at their jobs.

Thanks for taking me back to that Wisconsin game.  

goddamnit...

05/08/2018 - 11:00pm Yep. This time of year late

Yep. This time of year late arrivals to MLB games will sometimes result in cheap tickets. Check out minor league baseball games, if you’re in a small town.
Bad weather? Don’t be afraid to see a movie by yourself.
Always more work to be done, pounding out spreadsheets and emails I’m the hotel room, or from a quiet bar somewhere.
Hit up current or former colleagues to join you for dinner. That’s always good networking.
You can always spend a half hour by calling your parents/kids/significant other.

04/19/2018 - 7:46am I’m willing to bet Zordich

I’m willing to bet Zordich didn’t say anything to the media that he hadn’t already told Hill directly...multiple times.

04/19/2018 - 7:43am Often times, yes. I think

Often times, yes. I think this level of sports is sometimes different, in that regard.

If Hill is hurt by public comments about his toughness, though, he may want to skip playing at the next level because they won’t hesitate to call out a player’s toughness in the media, if that player appears to be unwilling to play through a couple dings.

Your first mistake was listening to any radio show that included Rick fucking Neuheisel.

Yeah, put your tallest guy on the player in-bounding the ball.  Make the throw difficult.  If you let the throw be easy, anything could happen.

Dammnit.  Double-post.  

My bad.

03/06/2018 - 3:46pm According to this comment you

According to this comment you made:

"Does this probably cause a few white guys to slip through the athletic cracks because of stereotypes? Sure. But overall, the stereotype holds true and that is why most CBs, WRs, RBs, etc. are black. "

 

Are you okay with a few black guys (QB's) slipping through the cracks because of stereotypes?  

I'm probably being a little unfair, so I'm sorry.  But I think you get where I'm coming from. 

Stereotypes are inherently unfair.   

03/06/2018 - 3:28pm Right.  It's the equivolent

Right.  It's the equivolent of expressing suprise that a black QB scored well on a wonderlic test.  

White people can run fast and black people are smart.  Stop buying into stereotypes. 

It's like the "throws like a girl" phrase.  PIsses me off everytime I hear it.  

03/06/2018 - 3:26pm That was part of the problem

That was part of the problem with his comments. 

Deion was surprised that "fast is fast in any color".
