The victims would be the individuals making covered claims.  

In any line of work you may enter into short of military service your employer bears a significant risk that the activities they pay you to undertake could result in various personal injuries or damages.  To that end, even temp agencies hiring out secretaries carry umbrella insurance policies and workers comp policies.  It appears that football teams may not be able to carry such coverage any longer from the usual providers, so a self-insurance provider would be the obvious choice.

They'll probably resort to self-insurance with a tendency to fucking over covered individuals.  High schools and smaller organizations will probably be f'd though.

The situation has improved somewhat since a PSA was aired near and around Columbus informing people that rinsing a "used" cooler out with flat Mountain Dew Code Red will not satisfactorily disinfect it

I think that was the spin that uninformed Bama and Sparty slappies were pulling out of their asses.  Bama to soften the sting of losing a coach, Sparty to soften the sting of Harbaugh actually bringing top notch talent to AA as opposed to Dantonio's strategy of pulling coaching assignments out of a hat and handing them out to the same old losers.

11 Warriors is not impressed.  Nor should they be

But don't you know, he TURNED DOWN his DREAM JOB at Louisville, albeit for a ridiculous raise.  That means he is at Purdue to stay forever and ever, and has impeccable integrity

Fitting, given that the pregame show was an extended Jeff Brohm slurpfest

Yes, it would seem to undermine the underlying rationale for sitting out the bowl game.

In other news, the Knoxville airport today added direct, nonstop service to Tijuana and Bangkok.

11/26/2018 - 6:30pm Agreed.  I found myself…

Agreed.  I found myself retroactively happy that Sparty lost to OSU.  After that embarrassment it would have been farcical for Michigan to then go on and immediately play in the B1G championship game.

I'd feel sorry for him if he had to work, if his economic circumstances dictated that he keep bringing in that $$.  Given that he's probably worth in excess of $20,000,000 though I can comfortably hate him.

This has been the trendy opinion of late, and it has some merit.  Nonetheless, one doesn't need to act like a childish dipshit in order to execute this strategic prerogative.  And it definitely does speak to his character and coachability.  If I were a GM who desperately needed talent on the Dline I might take this guy.  But this isn't a minor infraction like smoking a joint.  He is telling anybody with eyes that he will be flagrantly disrespectful to his coaching staff, and the odds are good that he'll quit on his next team too.

I remember when Dantonio received many kudos for landing Blackwell, and how he was going to be a force to be reckoned with on the recruiting trail (which he undoubtedly was for a time).  My how things have changed.

Political maybe, but the proposal had some decent bipartisan support from what I saw in my circle.

11/06/2018 - 7:39am There are Michigan defenders… There are Michigan defenders running in all directions on every snap, but they all know exactly where they’re going. You could call them robots, but they violate the First Law of Robotics on every play.

Izzo will flame out in the first weekend, but MSU will still be top ten in next year's preseason rankings

Well there's at least one in GR, one in East Lansing, and presumably several in metro Detroit

Is ND still paying him though?  Serious question

I may be missing something, but doesn't a two loss LSU most definitely get excluded, allowing Michigan to tak that fourth spot?

The assholes in Traverse City who are behind the pointless lifestyle brand M-22 didn't invent their logo either, but they were able to trademark it.

As a Yooper, I find troll geographical designations to be fundamentally flawed.  I wouldn't call anything south of Petoskey "Northern Michigan".

Imagine if the Wolverines went after every team that uses a variation of the winged helmet.

Pinconning in Northern Michigan?  That's a fairly expansive definition of Northern.

I've just bought local corned beef and desalinated it and smoked it.  Louie's in Traverse City is great.  But you've inspired me to make some pastrami this weekend!

Exactly.  There has been an imbalance in the intensity that surrounds this game since Rich Rod was here.  How else do you explain even shitty Hoke teams playing OSU down to the wire, but getting pushed around the field by MSU.  The intra-state hate is intense, as every person living in Michigan knows.  Sparty have been bold lately, with occasional strangers calling me out in public for my M gear, Sparty flags popping up on houses everywhere, Sparty gear on the backs of the majority of kids in the schools.  It's time we matched the hate.  I'm all on board.

Man my favorite thing lately is how sports media constantly defer to Scott Frost.  

"It's going to be a long, hard, painful road for Nebraska under Scott Frost, filled with humiliation, losses and roster and staff attrition for the foreseeable future.  But you know he's going to turn it around soon."

I was at that Toledo game.  It was terrible.  Multiple children were seen crying around the stadium.  Nonetheless, I still had faith.

 

The PSU game killed it for me.  I listened to it while I applied window insulating plastic to the outside of my windows on my old house.  Don't ask.  I was drinking a lot.  Towards the end of the game I fell off a ladder and sustained some serious injuries.  Dark days.

I don't think anyone is ignoring the largest come-from-behind victory of the Harbaugh era.

Gotta go.  I have to go brag about national championships won before my birth to random Sparty.

I would also imagine he could sell them on the lax enforcement of academic standards.  And, um, other laws as well which current public events would indicate I should not be joking about.

When I worked at the Campus Inn and did breakfasts he was the only guy on the team who came across as a vindictive asshole.  When he started showing up on TV I thought he must have matured and that maybe I just saw a bad side of him then.  But no.  He's an asshole through and through.

10/04/2018 - 12:04am That's a fair point you…

That's a fair point you raise.  However, when we've been excited about assistant coaches in the past, like Nuss, it's almost always been a preseason infatuation that died as soon as the rubber met the road.  With Ed here we are falling love with him as we slowly discover his endearing qualities.
