Brings to mind a story about Barry Switzer. In 1980, North Carolina had a pretty good team - they were 7-0 and had risen to No. 6 in the polls. They featured LT on defense and "Famous" Amos Lawrence at running back. They were coached by Dick Crum. OU was only 5-2 and was ranked No. 16, but would go on to win the Big 8. They played a late-season nonconference game in Norman. Before the game while the coaches were chatting, Barry repeatedly referred to Dick as Denny, who was the basketball coach at Louisville who had just won the NC earlier that year.
After the game, which OU won in a surprising romp, 41-7, Switzer again called Crum "Denny." Crum finally corrected him: "Coach, my name is Dick! Denny is a basketball coach in Kentucky!"
Turned out to be the only game UNC lost that year.
|02/23/2018 - 12:11pm||the non-compete was written||
so that it only applied if Enos left or was fired for cause (i.e. misconduct or NCAA violations).
|02/23/2018 - 12:10pm||this is correct||
Enos was not subject to a non-compete.
|11/27/2017 - 1:57pm||The series isn't restarting||
its just a 2-game deal.
So come the end of 2019 each team will have had one more home game than it's had now.
The home dates fell the way they did because otherwise UM would have had only 6 home games in 2019 and Harbaugh said he didn't care if ND got the first home game in 2018.
|05/19/2017 - 11:50am||Big 10 is #2||
because its new TV deals don't kick in until the fall.

where's the big boom in NHL viewership that you say will result?
|03/08/2017 - 1:28pm||If you guys think that||
Delany just did this on his own, you're sadly misinformed.
|02/27/2017 - 1:57pm||One of the things that gets lost with Red||
Is how long it took him to build up the program from the one he took over. I think it was either his 6th or 7th season before they made the NCAA tournament, though a little better luck in the CCHA tourney in either 1989 or 1990 might (should in 1990) have gotten them there. In a lot of ways he's been a victim of his own success. Makes you wonder how much time his replacement will get to have things up and running.
|02/24/2017 - 10:26am||I ran across Rodman||
after he was done playing out in Newport Beach where he lived.
The stuff he did on the court was exactly him. It wasn't an act.
|02/21/2017 - 11:51am||The hoops attendance problems||
seem to undermine that argument. College hoops is pretty reliably a 2-hour affair unless the game goes to overtime.
Seems to me that if they win more games, more people will come.
|02/02/2017 - 4:29pm||wipe the 28 from your head||
it never was a rule.
|12/22/2016 - 1:56pm||I think you missed the point.||
I think you missed the point. Nobody is telling you that you can't be a Bruce and contact recruits or their families. They are telling you that it is a total dick move to do it. If you're not smart enough to understand the difference that's not our problem.
|12/22/2016 - 11:53am||On ND||
There are two constraints:
1. Habaugh said to make it happen ASAP.
2. They need 3 home nonconference games in 2019.
Put those things together and it was never going to be anything but playing at ND in 2018 and in Ann Arbor in 2019.

|11/15/2016 - 10:40am||Here's the NCAA Rule||
a. No defensive player, in an attempt to gain an advantage, may step, jump or stand on an opponent.
b. No defensive player who runs forward from beyond the neutral zone and leaps from beyond the neutral zone in an obvious attempt to block a field goal or try may land on any player(s).
c. No defensive player who is inside the tackle box may try to block a punt by leaving his feet in an attempt to leap directly over an opponent.
d. No defensive player, in an attempt to block, bat or catch a kick, may:
PENALTY [a-d]—15 yards, previous spot and automatic first down. [S38]
|11/03/2016 - 2:06pm||College PI in the endzone||
Results in the ball being placed at the 2 if the original spot was at the 17 or closer to the end zone or a 15 yard penalty (no reduction for half the distance) if the original spot was outside the 17.
In this case, the play started at the 20 so the ball was placed at the 5.

|10/13/2016 - 2:50pm||It's a Big 10 rule||
Harbaugh took the whole roster to Utah last year.
|10/12/2016 - 12:32pm||I've lived in Central Ohio for 21 years||
tips for staying safe:
1. safety in numbers.
2. for whatever reason, if your stuff doesn't say Michigan on it they don't seem to pick up on the fact that you're a Michigan fan if you're wearing blue (like any true OSU fan would be caught dead wearing blue to the game on that day of all days).
3. don't mouth off and be prepared to ignore pretty much any verbal insult.
4. safety in numbers.
|10/11/2016 - 2:01pm||Some weeks ago||
he said that it will not.
|09/20/2016 - 3:33pm||there is no notification rule in college football||
the two end men on the LOS are eligible if wearing the right number and ineligible if wearing 50-79.
|09/20/2016 - 3:32pm||you are correct||
even the center can be an eligible receiver in college football so long as he is wearing the right number, assuming that everyone else on the line is to one side or the other.
|09/16/2016 - 10:04am||There's an AATA shuttle from at least one of the mall hotels||
I believe it picks up at the Kensington Hotel and drops off/picks up in front of Crisler.
|09/14/2016 - 1:21pm||3 days out||
is when you're just starting to move beyond an informed guess. Even 24 hours out can be iffy.
|09/13/2016 - 10:05am||Just FYI for rental cars||
I've never seen discounts that beat what you can get from Costco Travel, assuming you're already a Costco member.
Discounts are great and for family trips you get an additional driver included for no extra charge.
|09/08/2016 - 11:24am||Stubhub fees are a percentage of the sale price||
I tried a pair of PSU tickets listed at $99 each. The fees take the $198 total price to $242.60, or 44.60 in fees. That's 22.5 percent of the listed price in fees.
If you paid $16 in fees that means you probably just bought a couple cheap tickets to UCF.
|09/08/2016 - 11:13am||If you can get||
something like two seats in one row immediately ahead of or behind two seats in the next, it can actually make it easier for four people to talk to each other.
Wouldn't really think of it for just two people though.
You can pay Stubhub's fees for the convenience and so you have some recourse/assistance in the event there's a problem, or you buy direct from the university, or you can go to another website or the streets of Ann Arbor and take your chances. It's a free country.
|08/25/2016 - 2:22pm||It wasn't quite as restrictive||
as one game a week and each team could only appear once a season. I know that they allowed for multiple games per weekend because I can recall going to OU-Nebraska in Norman with ABC cameras all over the place and then coming home to watch USC-UCLA on ABC at night. Also I think the rule was 3 appearances per team per season, plus a bowl game.
|08/07/2016 - 3:56pm||That rule has changed||
since Boren transferred.
|07/19/2016 - 11:37am||He could sue Goodell for defamation||
But will probably conclude that life is too short.
|07/11/2016 - 12:25pm||Just a small point||
The regular season was 12 games in 2002 and 2003. It was a 2 year experiment at the time, then they went back to 11 games for 2004 and 2005, and then the 12 game regular season was made permanent in 2006.

about being a fair-weather fan.
|04/19/2016 - 11:39am||they said their source||
for Swenson was the same as the source on the Peters rumor, which is why they gave it credence.
Just passing on what they said.
|04/06/2016 - 4:19pm||Not only did he retire of his own accord||
he tried to retire the year before and the athletic director asked him to stay on another year.
|04/01/2016 - 1:46pm||Last time they had 8 home games||
the price was $450.
Spin it however you want.
|03/15/2016 - 12:46pm||I hope you realize||
that someone else doubtless did the same in your room before you got there and no, the cleaning crew did not fully clean it up.
|03/14/2016 - 4:12pm||If you have Directv||
and aren't under contract with them, and aren't calling every 6 months to get some kind of concession from them, you're leaving money on the table.
|03/07/2016 - 12:25pm||That's not what Bylaw 184.108.40.206 says||
It says that if you're on an athletic scholarship and you play football you count for football. Period, end of discussion.
Football trumps everything. Hoops trumps everything but football.
Kind of a right bower/left bower deal.
Bylaw 220.127.116.11 says that you only count in one sport no matter how many you play.
|01/14/2016 - 12:23pm||I've posted a link elsewhere||
that has quotes from Big 10 officials in it.
Minnesota had a class of 30 in 2010 or so.
|01/14/2016 - 11:41am||If a player was not a recruited student-athlete||
(meaning no official visit and no in-home visit from a coach), and the scholarship is either non-institutional (i.e. the Kalamazoo Promise) or if institutional, the Director of Financial Aid certifies that it is not related to athletics ability, a player can get a non-athletic scholarship, play a sport, and not count against the scholarship limitations.
|01/14/2016 - 11:39am||The Big 10's "plus 3" rule||
has to do with the 85 limit, not the 25 limit.
See the quotes from Big 10 officials in this article.
|01/11/2016 - 11:01am||The idea is to get wifi in the stadium||
That is what NFL stadiums do and it takes a lot of the load (primarily people trying to send pictures they've taken either to friends or to Twitter/Facebook).
The problem is that there are not a lot of good places in the bowl to put the antennae. I think they tried it out on a limited basis for a few sections on the east side of the stadium in 2013 but then things got really distracted going into 2014.
Brandon blamed the decline in student attendance on this issue but the fact that it was an excuse was shown by the fact that he didn't exactly make it a priority to deal with.
|12/02/2015 - 12:36pm||It's basically||
an accounting convention. A similar charge is imposed on every department - essentially the allocation of overhead expenses that can't otherwise be allocated, so it is recorded as a charge against each department's budget.
|11/10/2015 - 2:38pm||I think he's specifically talking about||
credential sharing for live sports events.
|11/10/2015 - 2:34pm||watchESPN blacks out NFL on phones||
because the NFL Mobile app makes all games shown on Thursdays, Sunday nights, and Mondays available on it. But your service has to be through Verizon.
Same thing happens Sunday nights on the NBC Live Extra app. Blacked out on my phone but not on my ipad.
|11/08/2015 - 10:45am||Missed the stadium?||
They flew right overhead.
|11/05/2015 - 11:50am||Rarely remembered, but the pass to AC in 1979||
that won the Indiana game came on play action out of a two-back set.
Even Bo laughed at himself for that one.
Apparently that was the only play in the playbook that sent 3 receivers on medium/deep routes.
