And they decided they had to "part ways" with the S&C guy, who directly reports to Durkin.

My summary of that was that the University president did fine, but the AD was a disaster.  Which given that most of it was scripted, may have been the president hanging the AD out to dry.

Strength and conditioning coach has been fired.

08/14/2018 - 2:28pm Via Auerbach: Maryland…

Via Auerbach: Maryland accepts "legal and moral responsibility for the mistakes that our training staff made on May 29."

It always amazes me how no one can start a press conference on time.

Depends how the Under Armour guy feels.

08/11/2018 - 6:18pm If you go back to whenever…

If you go back to whenever the Sandusky indictment happened:

OSU - wife beater, wrestling molestation, swimming molestation

MSU - Nassar, looking the other way for sexual assault by players on the regular

Maryland - killed a player as part of a widespread culture of physical and emotional abuse

Rutgers - widespread culture of physical and emotional abuse

Michigan - Gibbons and Morris situations

Penn State - Sandusky, elected a Paterno to the board of trustees in the aftermath

Indiana - fired the head football coach for creating a widespread culture of physical and emotional abuse

The Big Ten East, everybody!

Gruden's call for a draw at the end of the half really shows why he's worth 10 million/year.  God I hate him so much.

Hurst is blowing up whoever is playing RG on pass downs.  The LG stoned him though.

08/10/2018 - 10:47pm The only reasonable reaction…

The only reasonable reaction is fuck the NCAA and its stupid rules.  UNC had way more severe punishment for something like this than creating an entire fake academic program to keep kids eligible.

About as credible as their preseason basketball rankings.

08/07/2018 - 11:35pm It's a joke about Michigan…

It's a joke about Michigan fans being elitist intellectuals who look down on everyone and worship Bo.  Which is... not entirely wrong.

08/07/2018 - 10:12pm It was a good gimmick for 30…

It was a good gimmick for 30 minutes and then they ran out of steam.  And not making a Fulmer joke (with Holly involved!) when they go to the coaches poll section proved them to be imposters. (I'm kidding, but still)

AKA enough time for it to filter out of the news cycle and they quietly reinstate him.

08/04/2018 - 8:49pm I still say two games (they…

I still say two games (they open with Oregon State and Rutgers, then they get TCU) because I'm relentlessly cynical.  The fans seem to have flipped from being split to wholly behind him because of that statement.

08/03/2018 - 5:50pm That is a very lawyery…

That is a very lawyery statement designed to mitigate his liability while utterly fucking him from a PR/ethics point of view.

08/02/2018 - 6:18pm It's not necessarily about…

It's not necessarily about the perpetrators but it's mostly about everyone else.  A big part of the problem is enabling the problem behavior.  Ideally we would get Zach Smith the help he needs, but we definitely don't want Urban Meyer covering it up.

08/02/2018 - 5:54pm Glad Harbaugh joined the…

Glad Harbaugh joined the group of coaches who have invited her to speak to their teams.  It's been a good trend the last couple years.

OJ Simpson: we shouldn't rush to judgment about Joseph James DeAngelo.

08/02/2018 - 10:33am He's pled guilty at least…

He's pled guilty at least once, which sadly dropped him down to a misdemeanor instead of a felony.  He flat out lies and edits his videos deceptively.  He's a gross person and should be shunned.

08/01/2018 - 8:02pm That is what that means, yes.

That is what that means, yes.

08/01/2018 - 8:01pm If they can fire him for…

If they can fire him for cause and get out of the buyout that seems like it changes the calculus.  His buyout is probably immense.

08/01/2018 - 6:48pm Whoever (among college…

Whoever (among college coaches) they want that's not Saban or Harbaugh, probably.  Maybe not Dantonio either.

11W feels like a maybe 50/50 split, which is way better than I was anticipating.

08/01/2018 - 1:30pm Brian, 11W, and the amateurs…

Brian, 11W, and the amateurs at the Daily have broken news pretty regularly.  I don't buy this excuse.

08/01/2018 - 12:49pm Because it hits Urban.

Because it hits Urban.

08/01/2018 - 12:35pm I've been thinking about the…

I've been thinking about the thought experiment since this thread got posted.  So at your job, where you are not the head man but have a fair amount of authority (Warinner had OC responsibilities), your wife tells you that she's been texting with your co-worker's wife and she thinks/knows there is domestic abuse going on.

The thing I would worry most about is if I take some kind of action that isn't responded to, am I further endangering the victim?  It's not an easy question at all.  But I would like to know what Warinner's thinking was.

08/01/2018 - 12:17pm Yeah it's not as serious an…

Yeah it's not as serious an issue, but it's still morally let's say questionable.

08/01/2018 - 12:12pm Ramzy's tweet is pretty…

Ramzy's tweet is pretty gross, for the record.

It says that he knew, everybody knew, and that they wrote around it for six years.  That while they didn't have the texts and photos McMurphy got they heard the rumors and didn't bother investigating, basically.

08/01/2018 - 12:08pm Shit, hadn't thought about…

Shit, hadn't thought about it.  Needs to be asked though.

08/01/2018 - 11:54am If Urban coached a non…

If Urban coached a non-revenue sport, he would be fired by I dunno, 5 PM?

But he doesn't, so the fanbase will mostly rally around the flag and circle the wagons and whatever other cliches you want to use.

It's kinda like the standing ovation from the Izzone for Izzo in reaction to the ESPN article... during a teal out to support Nassar's victims.

Did we check to see if he stole his defense from Yost?

Wishing he had basically any luck.

07/24/2018 - 4:55pm Great guy, was born to be a…

Great guy, was born to be a linebacker in the 90s, unfortunately for his bank account.

07/18/2018 - 11:32pm That was, I believe, about…

That was, I believe, about half of his victims.

07/03/2018 - 3:28pm If your first thought is…

If your first thought is that this is predominantly a political story then I dunno man.

06/28/2018 - 8:50pm Thanedar is a fraud. …

Thanedar is a fraud.  Exactly the kind of person who should not be allowed anywhere near elected office.

06/20/2018 - 3:24pm He's an asshole plagiarist …

He's an asshole plagiarist (stole from Yost's Mzone way back in the day, never credited him).

06/19/2018 - 7:14am It's not really a secret we…

It's not really a secret we have a lot of talent.  But everything is going to come down to if we can block anyone.

06/15/2018 - 5:02pm Mosallum and Byrum have…

Mosallum and Byrum have consistently come closest to doing the right thing.  But yeah, they should all resign.  And if they don't, shitcan them all when they're up for election.  Which will be a while for some of them.

And the football hire seemed like a good idea at the time.

06/01/2018 - 7:05pm It's well documented that he

It's well documented that he spends a ton of time working on the fundamentals like which foot to land on when receiving a pass all the time.  You can't read a profile of last year's team without Matthews being quoted about this in particular.

06/01/2018 - 6:28pm The other thing is this would

The other thing is this would be a ridiculous roster mismatch.  Nobody can shoot, and they're built to run through bigs with Drummond and Griffin, with little flexibility.

06/01/2018 - 4:20pm The problem is with coaches

The problem is with coaches who win because they out-talent everybody to win in the NCAA.  Somebody like Beilein who has never had that advantage (2013 excepted) strikes me as more likely to do well in the NBA.

Still, GTFO, Gores.

05/30/2018 - 6:24pm Is he young for his class

Is he young for his class like a lot of the guys Beilein targets?

05/28/2018 - 9:57am Football: 2006 OSU is an

Football: 2006 OSU is an obvious choice.  Carr owned Florida and the reason the OSU/Florida game was a blowout would have been neutralized by Jake Long.  2016 is the other obvious one.  One I haven't seen mentioned is the '99 MSU game (or Illinois the same year).  If we win either of those games, which we easily could have, we've got a good shot at the title game (we were fifth to end the regular season) against a fairly weak champion.  I think to this day that in a four team playoff we win that year.

Basketball is the Louisville game.

Hockey is either the '97 Frozen Four because Red's best team or the Minnesota-Duluth title game.

05/20/2018 - 2:04pm Ah the traditional eliminated

Ah the traditional eliminated on a defensive fuckup.  I am not a fan of this tradition.
