Your videos are truly inspirational. Now I am stoked for the single greatest sporting event on Earth.

Ghana. It always ends with Ghana.
|11/12/2013 - 7:26pm||The announcer||
"Stauskas from three.....Balls." He said that.
|11/01/2013 - 5:39pm||Making Plays||
One or two times in this game, our defensive backfield is going to get an opportunity. Raymon Taylor, Desmond Morgan, Tom Gordon......someone. Someone will see a ball. A ball rolling on the ground, a duck floating in the air.
The X-Factor is our guys grabbing it and housing it.
|10/11/2013 - 3:43pm||It's Marketing.||
We all loved Michigan football. Innocently. Then came the night games, the hype, College Gameday, flyovers, helmet stickers, Legens Patches, Seven Nation Army, the "Michigan fergodsakes" mystique, and even a Final Four.
Now remove it all. No special UTL, no special jerseys. A good-not-great start to the season. Just a regular game with the absence of marketing. And you have a bland taste in your mouth, where that would have once been tasty.

Sugar Bowl - first time in New Orleans...New Year's Day...then Junior Hemingway...Hurricane...enough said about that trip
Notre Dame, 2010 - Shoelaces Flapping in the Wind
Indiana, 2010 - Denard Show. A student-body tailgate that clearly emphasized the tailgate aspect of gameday over the actual game
Illinois, 2005 - those "Muck Fichigan" shirts really shaped my understanding of how great it is to be a Michigan Wolverine
Gator Bowl - fuck cowbells
Purdue, 2008 - Hook and Ladder. The only thing that could be worse than the Gator Bowl.

We are one of the ~10% of all athletic departments that run in the black. Rejoice and be thankful for the means that we have to do this stuff.

But Yaximizing Mour Lumble Fuck.

that Michigan's definition of "BBQ" lives up to the expectations of Fournette and Campbell. None of this hot dogs and burgers bullshit.

The NFL would rather do just what it is doing. Teams use LA as an ever-present threat in the hypothetical sort of way. This way, current NFL cities are forced to pay for new stadiums publicly to appease their owners into not jettisoning for LA.
And LA remains open for the next threat. This is how the Texans franchise settled in Houston, how the Vikings got their new stadium deal in Minneapolis, and it's what faces the Chargers and the Jaguars next.
|06/08/2013 - 10:21am||Extrapolation||
Does it account for the ~10 quarters Shane Morris will see in mop-up duty?
|06/05/2013 - 10:12pm||Hypothetical Long-term View||
Changing recruits' perceptions of the entire conference would require some sort of drastic differentiation from other conferences. Off the top of my head, the best thing the BIG has going for it (generally) vs SEC, Big 12, etc. is academics.
If every athletic department bought into this vision of investing full-heartedly into the academic lives of its athletes, we could fashion the perception of playing for the BIG school as a prestigious football opportunity. In the same way that academically-geared recruits narrow their lists to Notre Dame, Vandy, Stanford, and Michigan now, we could create a culture which steers top recruits to automatically think, "the Big Ten is where I want to create my future and play top-notch football football."
If there are enough recruits out there who'd be drawn to this type of differentation, I know not. Hell, it's basically the Ivy League. I dunno.
|06/01/2013 - 7:43pm||....||
that's just the point. When I listen to my team on the radio, I expect hardcore homerism. Ron Santo with the Cubs used to live and die with every at bat; whenever opposing teams made a play, Ron would groan before the play-by-play guy even made the call.
When Dickerson calls a home run, his voice raises, but half the time he seems like he's cheering for the wrong team. I don't want him to be excited when Paul Konerko goes deep; I want him to share my pain with me.

My junior year of highs schoo, I took the Spring Break Campus Tour of 4-5 schools; the tour concluded in Ann Arbor.
Already having grown up a Wolverine fan, I remember riding in the car past Ocker Field and Yost on the way to my campus visit, thinking, "Let's be real here. These other visits are simply formalities. This is where I'm going, and it's not even close."
|02/14/2013 - 10:27pm||Man, does Dakich or ESPN know||
Man, does Dakich or ESPN know anything about PR? How can a professional in such a high-profile role get away with such blatant twitter trash talk? Twitter is NO DIFFERENT than standing up and making a statement to a room full of your followers.
Talk about a failure in personal branding. Heck, I re-read each of my own tweets 2-3 times to make sure they're actually worth tweeting.
|02/14/2013 - 7:32pm||OT||

Wait until he walks through the Diag; checks out Ann Arbor, attends a Michigan basketball game, sings the Victors with his teammates after a win, and explores the thousands of other things that make the University of Michigan hte best place in the world. I am sure he'll be singing a different tune in no time.

You can't be mad at that. Just wow.

Georgetown's and Texas's Hyper Elites look kinda fresh. For them. Wouldn't want us to ever go back to the block M.

I think as an athlete, you dream about being the best. You work at being the best. Then you hear someone tell you that, indeed, you're one of the best.
And you're just kinda there. A high school junior going to class and preparing for your upcoming basketball game, thinking, "Wow. I woke up today just like any other day in my life. And now this is what being one of the best looks and feels like." I think in that situation it's pretty conceivable to feel humble.
|02/02/2013 - 10:02pm||This team always comes out||
This team always comes out with a run at the beginning of the second half. They already have the momentum here. Get GRIII or Stauskas an open look that goes down, and we'll roll.

We're on our way back...just give it time............

Thing is, when the Pistons acquired Chauncey, nobody was calling him a pure point guard. Who's to say Knight can't develop into one? Not saying Calderon wasn't a good move, but this team's backcourt just got a lot more interesting as they try to run down the Sixers and the Celts.

In the late seventies/early eighties, many elite programs actually did leave the NCAA so they could negotiate their own television contracts with the help of the CFA (College Football Association). The NCAA only allowed one televised game each Saturday.
