i would correlate those people trying so hard to get everyone to say jif  instead of gif to the pompous sports announcers trying to get everyone to say "rbi" instead of "rbi's." At some point, the pronunciation becomes a part of the vernacular and there's no sense trying to change it. No offense of course, DJ ;o)

I noticed the same. Not that players should be responsible for reporting concussions suffered by other players, but it does make you think. How do you keep hammering on a guy on the scout team knowing that he's suffering the effects of unreported concussions? 

It's just a messed up situation all the way around. I don't know why someone would want to do that to their body when they're not even playing in the games, knowing full well the toll it's taking. Man...

Heh, notice how Meyer stops short of giving any credit to the coaches at Michigan. He lauds their "great" players and personnel while conveniently leaving out any mention of the scUM coaches. I might be reading into it but it appears to be Meyer's way of getting a dig in a t the UM coaches and their ability to do less with more.

There is a certain amount of discernment that goes into it, I agree. If everyone in your section is sitting at a game vs. FAMU and the bucks are up 50, then sure, sit your butt down. Otherwise, stand and cheer!!

Sounds like double speak to me, they'll say one thing to avoid the outrage but then do another once you're in the stadium. I know for a fact there are ushers that will enforce the no standing "policy" and if you refuse (because afterall, there is no rule against standing) then they will call the authorities. Bunch of BS if you ask me.

Go Shelley Meyer. The voice of reason once again. She stood up for the fans on this matter and when it came to Spring Game ticket prices as well.

Hopefully depth on the D-Line and Johnson's willingness to substitute frequently will help with some of the conditioning issues on the D-Line. It seemed Vrabel took more of an NFL approach and left the starters in but I think at the college level, this is a mistake - especially with the athletes we have on the line.

It seems our defense will be more aggressive this year which will be a welcome sight. I don't even care if there are coverage breakdowns if it means we're playing full speed, attacking the ball, and wreaking havoc on opponents. There were way too many coverage breakdowns last year while playing a soft defense so I'd like to think the change in scheme will help pressure the offense into mistakes even if we don't have all the mental errors cleared up due to implementing a new system.
