"Jim Harbaugh announces the 2021 recruiting class, which includes 19 QBs and 2 kickers. In addition to the 3 graduate transfer QBs from the 2020 class and the 4 JUCO QB transfers, 75 of the 85 available scholarships are now held by QBs."

How many stars did Jake Rudock have during his recruiting cycle? That would be a nice floor for the season.

11W actually had a good article on BuckIGuy and the rabid OSU fanbase: https://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-football/2018/04/92866/the-me-generation

Industrial and Operations Engineering, while kinda laughed at in the engineering school, sets up really well for an MBA.

1) end of game fouls in basketball are all technicals

2) clock keeps running in football after kickoffs (eliminates TO-kick-TO) and more often in general

3) 30-second pitch clock in baseball

Given a generous reading of his statements, I think he's implying that his players are faking injuries to get out of practice, and that he would rather have a smaller amount of devoted athletes than a bunch of lazy players.

Not that you should actually say that in public, that would be a PR disaster.

Always room for another Wagner.

03/05/2018 - 8:44pm Lawyer, but not your lawyer

Until there's a complaint filed, it's hard to say. They don't link the 1996 law, so it's not clear whether it would apply here. As described in the article, if this law puts restrictions on timing and sale of sports franchises, then a lawsuit of the Crew could be successful if the facts alleged in the article are true. I find that unlikely since jounalists tend to leave out the boring minutiae that prove crucial in an actual lawsuit.

More likely, the Crew are going to either settle with Columbus out of court or follow the law and, finding no buyers, move to Austin.

Wasn't Auburn let off the hook for Cam Newton because his dad took several thousands of dollars?

Hard Candy. This was pre-Juno Ellen Page, and she nails her role here. There's a scene in particular that made me cross my legs for about 20 minutes. I'm glad I saw it once.

Nebraska, if only because it's in September and it won't be cold. Maybe Wisconsin.

I like Lastpass, as many have mentioned above, with 2FA. I pay for the premium service ($24/year) so I can get access on my phone and tablet.

AD probably pointed the Michigan Money Cannon at him and said "you sure you want to go to Bama?"

01/05/2018 - 4:02pm Not thrilled with that

Not thrilled with that Passing O S&P trend, but I'm hoping Harbaugh can fill those gaps himself or with a dedicated WR coach. I'll trust JH on this.

01/05/2018 - 1:01pm Ace and JUB come to mind.

Ace and JUB come to mind.

01/04/2018 - 4:00pm Worth it? Worth it.

You know, as much as I love Don Brown, I have to wonder if paying him $2.5M or more would be worth it. I'm thinking about this way more than I should, and only because the idea of paying an assistant coach more than many head coaches is a little baffling to me.

But for these defenses, he's worth it.

Can't wait to see the train formation steamroll the SEC East.

Been debating subscribing to The Althetic. Seems that a lot of sports journalists are going there. Is the content worth the subscription price?

Thank goodness, I was worried for a second that Sparty was about to become a Disney princess.

"In response to Jim Harbaugh's new hire at the University of Michigan, the NCAA has banned the use of adamantium in strength training support."

I bought Escape from Camp 14 a few years ago, with the idea to read it when I finally have the stomach for it. Haven't had the courage yet.

Hiring a coordinator from your big rival who happens to be dominating your conference right now? I could see this working out well to them.

Hmm, seriously tempted to try to make my own blooming onion for the game. Got a decent deep fryer, just need to perfect that onion slicing.

If FSU lets Fisher go, they deserve to wallow in mediocrity for the next several years. Pay the man and upgrade your facilities.

11/29/2017 - 6:21pm As much as Tennessee is a

Because Tennessee is a tire fire right now, I'd be surprised if a big name went there. Frankly, they need someone like Brady Hoke who can clean up the program (though maybe with a better OC, like Walt Bell). Then again, we saw how Hoke handles the pressures of an angry fanbase.

11/29/2017 - 5:25pm Suggestion for PSU

I, for one, recommend a former Big Ten offensive coordinator that should be very familiar to Penn State, Al Borges. This is a very professional opinion based on his previous extensive experience and unquestionable success.

11/29/2017 - 11:06am First game of the year:

First game of the year: destroying a (now former) Florida coach.

Penultimate game of the year: Close loss to former Florida coach.

Bowl game: playing another former Florida coach.

 

Gainesville must have some beef with us this year.

I get the feeling that Montana was a lot like Texas a few years ago, where everyone expects instant wins from a new coach and won't accept that rebuilding is painful.

11/19/2017 - 4:43pm I see him taking a year off

I see him taking a year off and then going to a high level Group of Five school. Could fit in well at a MAC or MWC school.

Sure, just saying that if you showed that to Yiayia (who follows UM basketball), she'd look at you funny.

Only 51% think the NCAA is part of the problem?

11/01/2017 - 11:22am I mean, yes, the Harbaughs

I mean, yes, the Harbaughs are weird. But the good kind of weird (think mad scientist).

See also Man of the Crowd, a Baltimore Ravens podcast focused on John Harbaugh and the Harbaugh family as a whole. Emphasizes the weirdness from a non-UM perspective.

10/25/2017 - 4:50pm Maybe it wasn't oil stock,

Maybe it wasn't oil stock, but it was definitely some non-cash equity investment.

10/25/2017 - 12:48pm I remember hearing a few

I remember hearing a few years ago how both the basketball and football coaches at Arizona were offered a bonus in the form of stock in some oil company that vested over a few years. Rather than cash, the value of that stock (valued at the time to be about $2M) would be the additional compensation. I'm guessing it grew faster than expected with the recent stock boom.

Good for him. Glad he finally found his Denard.

10/13/2017 - 2:49pm Under NCAA Reasoning

They got away with it because the sham classes were open to the rest of the student body? Okay, let's have a budgeting class where the professor hands envelopes full of cash to each student. Non-athletes get a 5-dollar bill, and athletes get $15000.

10/10/2017 - 9:37am Harbaugh will be fine.

Harbaugh will be fine. Drevno, OTOH, may be encouraged to take a mid-major HC job soon.
