I think the point is that calling out his work ethic makes no sense. It's possible that he tried his best and it just didn't happen.

I'm not for politics on the blog/board either, but treating them as a game is naive, and only really possible for people that have the upper hand, socioeconomically. It matters, a lot, it just doesn't need to be discussed everywhere, all the time.

I got what I came for! Sorry, buckeyes.

A lot of it has to do with insertion points of muscles as well. You can only do so much before you start bumping into the limits of physics. My high school health teacher (and the track coach) mentioned that at some point he had been analyzed and determined he was pretty much maxed out on his speed, which made him feel a little better about getting beaten by more gifted athletes, hah.

No coach is going to not have their players train to max out their speed, though.

That seems like an extreme reaction to someone singing songs and making people happy...

There was definitely *some* UI design done, but I would wager a guess that the vast majority of the time and resources went toward getting it upgraded, functional, and stable. It looks fine, but I've got a bunch of minor visual gripes too. If I don't get any 404 or Drupal errors during a commitment, it's an upgrade.

06/06/2018 - 11:33am Holy crap.

Holy crap.

AWWWWW YEAHHHHHH!

Game on, folks.

It seems like if anyone actually wants to win, chaos team should be enemy number one, right? If OSU gets knocked out first, they just get stronger...

05/19/2018 - 10:29pm If they came out and said the OSU game was the

If they came out and said the OSU game was the most important and then lost the next game, you'd be bitching that they were looking ahead.

05/19/2018 - 8:55pm Are you under the impression that you want to beat

Are you under the impression that you want to beat OSU more than Harbaugh does? Because foh if so.

What, exactly, is the difference between practicing to get better and practicing to win the OSU game? Because as we just saw, the coaches had a beautiful game plan this past year.

It seems like those posts are always outnumbered 3:1 by posts like this cluttering up the board.

05/11/2018 - 4:16pm You may be right, and I don't

You may be right, and I don't have data to back this up, but given the literal billions of dollars floating around college football right now, I'd disagree.

05/11/2018 - 3:27pm ha, ok. I should have worded that "the top tenth

ha, ok. I should have worded that "the top tenth of a percent of people that do a job tens of millions of people pay to watch every week."

They don't necessarily provide societal value, but they're generating billions in revenue.

05/11/2018 - 10:54am If the players were allowed to be paid, would they

If the players were allowed to be paid, would they be paid? If so, they're underpaid.

The NCAA just doesn't want to loosen the stranglehold they have on all that cash.

05/11/2018 - 10:52am "Someone else is already getting a lot of perks

"Someone else is already getting a lot of perks for being incredibly good at what they do, and this makes me angry" is the lamest possible position to take.

You can have those perks too by being in the top tenth of a percent of whatever it is you do.

Didn't say it doesn't happen everywhere, I'm saying it's a terrible argument.

Just commenting here to agree that Vulfpeck is great. Good stuff. Carry on with the celebrations!

Invest as you can. I'm not saying mortgage your house to invest more, but dollar cost averaging implies that your strategy is to hold some back in order to avoid putting everything in at a peak.

Dollar cost averaging is statistically inferior to investing as early as possible.

Lots of injuries again, but they've got to find a way to overcome some of those.

Really excited to see what happens next year, especially with all those young wide receivers. DPJ, Black, Martin, etc. etc. all with a year+ under their belts, yes please!

The team probably keeps practicing and tries to win more games the following year.

You know, if you hate being that guy, you can just not be that guy. It's super simple to not be that guy.

lol. "I'm a man because I sit in something someone else built and stomp my foot real fast." I'm sure all the people you've dusted off the line are very jealous of you.

The general public, outside of Michigan and OSU fans, isn't giving a moment's thought to who has the better overall athletic department.

10/05/2017 - 11:57am Schools with the financial

Schools with the financial resources *do* pay more. It goes into every possible way to lure a player to their school except (usually) going directly to the players. Facilities, perks, coaches, food, whatever. Athletic departments with money are burning it everywhere they can because they're not allowed to pay the players.

10/05/2017 - 11:41am Oh please. If your 19 year old son started a

Oh please. If your 19 year old son started a business on YouTube reviewing fidget spinners and they were making tens of thousands of dollars a month, would you advocate for some organization to hold his earnings until he was 25 and more responsible?

10/05/2017 - 11:39am The implication is that he thinks the demographics

The implication is that he thinks the demographics would be paid cannot be trusted to manage their money. Whether the demographic of choice is age, race, socioeconomic status, whatever doesn't matter. I think 40 year old middle class white dudes make a lot of terrible purchasing and money management decisions, maybe we should have an organization set up that keeps their money until they've completed some financial literacy classes.

10/05/2017 - 9:44am Top athletes overwhelmingly go to the richest

Top athletes overwhelmingly go to the richest schools anyway. Do you think college football is a level playing field now?

10/05/2017 - 9:42am The "they'll buy stupid stuff" argument is so

The "they'll buy stupid stuff" argument is so offensive I don't know where to start.

You know how many people buy stupid stuff every day? Are you saying that we shouldn't pay people for their work if they might spend it on something you wouldn't?

Many of these athletes would be sending money home to their parents, buying food, etc.

10/05/2017 - 9:37am Why shouldn't athletes get that money while

Why shouldn't athletes get that money while they're in school? Would you advocate for corporations keeping a computer science intern's pay until graduation? A mother working two jobs and going to night school? They're creating value, they should be paid accordingly.

They look very meh. Looking forward to seeing what Don't Brown can do against what looks to be a pretty basic and mediocre offense.
