Saying you don’t care if the unpaid labor receives substandard treatment as long as you get what you want out of the deal sounds vaguely familiar. What it doesn’t sound like is love for the university or the team.

League = “it”

A matchup vs Clemson would be the best case scenario from a recruiting standpoint, but whoever the opponent is in the Orange Bowl is fine to me. Giving Harbaugh a month to prepare to go against Dabo or Jimbo is almost unfair.

10/25/2015 - 8:18am As a Florida State alum that

As a Florida State alum that married into a Michigan family (which caused me to then also adopt the Lions as my NFL team and has caused a whole different level of misery in itself) I can honestly say this has been the worst two week of football I've ever had.

It's one thing to lose on a blocked FG returned for a TD, but given that FSU has the world's most impressive resume of last minute FG related losses this is actually worse to me than the muffed/blocked punt. It's one thing when your team loses on a fluke once in a lifetime manner. It is a completely different thing when your team loses in the exact same manner in which it always loses (with the rare exceptions of doing things like getting the life choked out of them by Oregon notwithstanding). Wide Right, Wide Right II: Wide Righter, Wide Right III: Rise of the Revenge, etc. Different games, same movie played on a horrible, horrible endless loop.

Nah, you're going to want to go with Love Me Like I'm Not Made of Stone. Ultimate pump-up jam!

The holder is allowed to throw the ball from his knee in college. In the NFL (and most high schools) he would need to get up first.

I believe he meant not a bad storm in terms of it's impact on Maryland. Obviously NJ was hit hard.

03/19/2011 - 8:40pm I don't think the article is that far out there

Of course I also went to a HBCU so my perspective is a little more in line with his. The reaction in this thread to what he wrote is pretty much parallel to what Grant Hill's reaction was to the Fab 5 documentary. It's addressing the verbiage of the message more than the message. 

There's no doubt in my mind that had the Fab 5 had gone to another school, ANY school, they would have had just as much success and been just as much of a phenomeon. However I think what he's trying to get at is that there could have been an additional cultural impact at an HBCU that wouldn't have been possible anywhere else. Would they have been on TV as much at an HBCU? Not at all, at least not until March. Would they have sold as much merchandise? Heck no! But they would have put that school on the map and in the minds of millions of people, especially young black kids. There's also the potential financial impact. That money goes a lot farther at a school Hampton and than it does at Michigan.

I don't completely agree with what he's trying to say but I do understand what he's trying to say, so there's that.

I'm more concerned about playing Hampton in the 3rd round.

That's an awful lot of applesauce. Or apple juice. But spending $50,000 on Mott's for Detroiters is probably a better idea than say giving it to C.S. Mott, which isn't in the city. However if you're looking for a good children's hospital to pimp while attempting to make a point might I suggest Children's Hospital of Michigan instead? Conveniently located Midtown and everything.

Miller Lite is giving away a free case of beer if you buy a couple of frozen pizzas. Not my first choice, but who can turn down free beer? Not me, that's who.

02/02/2011 - 9:53pm Hmmmm...

Lots of offense, horrible defense, one guy carrying the team...
<br>Nope. Doesn't ring a bell at all. Good win all the same though.

01/13/2011 - 12:02am I agree

The cat completes me.
