Hypothetically speaking, can I donate $3000 to the Athletic Dept and designate that it can only be used to hire a skywriter to do this for the MSU-ND game?

Why was that not a hand ball? Beasley "kicked" to Howard, no?

"Denard skipping Minicamp to walk at graduation" would be more accurate. Denard will graduate regardless of whether he attends the ceremony.

Twitter CEO and U-M alumnus Richard (Dick) Costolo will deliver the Spring Commencement address.

Perhaps Denard wants to get in on the Twitter IPO action with his newly acquired $$$$$$$$.

Kate Upton was more impressed with Spike hitting four 3's in a row.

I think you've proven my point that you're being more disrespectful to Griner than Cuban is.

04/03/2013 - 1:04am My mancrush on Mark Cuban

My mancrush on Mark Cuban aside, I disagree that this is disrespectful on Mark's side. On the other hand, I think you're being disrespectful to Griner in that you think she's completely naive and/or stupid to even want to do this. While I do agree that she does not have a realistic shot, it is her choice to try out, and Mark is simply given her the opportunity to make that choice. History has shown that having men make decisions for women is not always (or ever?) a good idea.

02/13/2013 - 9:47am OSU lost at Illinois by 19

OSU lost at Illinois by 19 points. Duke lost at NC State by 8 then at Miami by 27. Bad games happen. This team took a night off. In all other games where they had a slow start, they fought back.

"But they're supposed to be getting better!" Well, other teams get better too. The competition isn't static.

02/12/2013 - 10:40pm What's the big deal?


3 of the 4 losses were on the road against top-15 teams. The other came against Wisconsin on the road who 1) needed a prayer half court shot to win, 2) beat Indiana in Bloomington, and 3) are ridiculously good at protecting home court.

Indiana and MSU will come to A2 soon. As long as Mich holds serve, then it's not that much of an underachievement. I'm okay with going 3-3 against OSU, IU, and MSU. Too bad Wisconsin doesn't make a return trip.

I think the TL;DR version is this - Manti Te'o's girlfriend is/was a leprechaun who pretended to be a pretty girl.

Thanks for posting this. The repeated reminders certainly helped me remember to sign up. After the kickstarter campaign, I hope Odoms can get 501(c) status to get encourage tax deductible donations.

I hope Tecmo jumps in too and replaces Bo Jackson with Denard.

07/19/2012 - 12:59am Taking the unpopular position

I understand that some coaches may not want to spend their recruiting resources on the one and done types, and that's fine. But if I'm a coach and a one and done type wants to come play for me with the intent of leaving after one year, why would I deny him the opportunity? It may even be immoral for me to deny him for the reason of "I don't want to make you a better person/player since it's not worth my time if you're just here for one year". Isn't one year of college better than no college at all?  Why put a 2-year minimum rule in place which probably has more chance of driving him away than bringing him in for 2 years (my baseless projection of probability)?

I'm of the opinion that 1/4 of college is better than no college at all. And letting a guy leave whenever he wants to leave opens up an opportunity for someone else. If you force him to stay for another year, that's 1 year of scholarship that could have gone to someone else who wants to be there so much more.

The tshirt seller also raises a good question of whether they will play You'll Never Walk Alone.  Maybe you can refresh memory on the lyrics just in case.

I don't think the webmaster got the memo on the seriousness of this report.

If PSU's athletic dept doesn't get the football revenues, it will likely be forced to drop all the non-revenue sports.  Or the support would have to come from somewhere else.  Don't think this was your intention.

Would be very surprised if Purdue's AD would spend money on Varsity hockey. And I don't think Mitch Daniels is a hockey fan (no politics here).  As a side note, looked at Purdue's club team and the due is $2000 per player. Not too bad for almost 30 games.


With about 18 scholarships for a hockey team, what women sports did Penn State add to comply with Title XI?


06/27/2012 - 7:27pm If you read this site daily..

then you would have read Ace's Tuesday updates which said 

Sam Webb reported yesterday that 2014 Grand Rapids Christian two-sport starDrake Harris will decide between Michigan, Michigan State, and Notre Dame on Wednesday.

Perhaps you forgot to tear a page off your Dilbert/K.Upton calendar.

Agreed.  Common sense says that any LS receiving a full scholarship by non-MSU BCS school is an automatic 4 star.

That was much more of a handball than the Onyewu "handball" vs Brazil.

Home field advantage I guess.

If I remember from my skooling, antitrust law's primary objective is to protect the interest of consumers.  Often this also results in smaller competitors being protected, but that's at most a secondary objective, if not just a byproduct.

Not clear who the consumers would be in this case. If it's student athletes of smaller schools, I don't see them being harmed. Sure they may miss out on a free Disneyworld vacation, but that's not the point.

Hopefully an MGoLawyer will provide some clarity.

05/22/2012 - 5:23pm Antitrust

I understand how antitrust works in the business world (eg. Microsoft, AT&T buying T-Mobile) but am very naive on how antitrust applies to "non-profit" college sports.  Could someone please help clarify?

Seriously ignorant,

11/29/2011 - 11:19am Remember WVU vs Georgia in the 2006 Sugar Bowl?

"West Virginia's freshman running back Steve Slaton was named the game's MVP, having rushed for a Sugar Bowl-record 204 yards and 3 touchdowns"

Are you going to argue that Georgia won the SEC without a good defense?


11/19/2008 - 5:30pm Florida's six #1 votes!?!??!

Six #1 votes for a team that lost to Ole Miss when there's an undefeated team in the same conference? Have we not learned to ignore style points after what the 2002 OSU team did to Miami in the title game?

Please wait until after the SEC conference title game to move Florida ahead of Alabama.
