Baseball does it. Hockey does it. Basketball does it. Why doesn't the NFL do it, when they make more money than all of those sports? Because they don't have to. They're just fine with letting the NCAA be their minor league. That's what DJ's point was.
She stated they were overpaid, and then backtracked on it. I get what yer saying, and she did qualify her remarks by saying that's what the market and their situations demand.
Actually read the article, cuz I had wondered why the second paragraph said "he said" instead of "she said" (yes I know, it's a he said/she said thing). It said he said because DJ left this out before the 2nd round of quotes -
Wisconsin athletics director Barry Alvarez doesn’t share it.
The later quotes are Barry Alvarez's, not Dr. Blank's.
No, they really wouldn't be able to easily do that. The organizations themselves would not stand for it, as it would significantly limit the talent base that they draw from. They would also open themselves up to all kinds of legal action. Sports is a very unique entity, and the NFL is not treated like any other "company" that operates in this country.
I think what he means is that he saved them, and now has ruined them for other coaches. Everyone is expected to do what he did, and what he did had never been done in any sustained fashion at Wiscy. I think yer right tho, his hires have been able to at least maintain the brand and level of football that he brought to the Badgers.
Will he last beyond this season? If not, then he's just a temporary fix to get thru this season.
I'm with you. I think their shittiness has been evident for years now, to those who know and understand college football.
Hey, he might be a degenerate dickhead, but he's OUR degenerate dickhead!!
Literally crawling? What was wrong with them that they couldn't walk?!
No doubt, yer not off base, but he didn't say they don't care about football, he said it's not as big a priority. Which is proven by their unwillingness to spend $ on their coaches. Bert left for Arkansas, a lateral move at best (and really was a step back), because Wisconsin wouldn't spend more on asst coaches.
They spent money on Camp Randall because they had to. It was falling apart.
I'm with you on the remarkable stuff - virtually every genre has remarkable music. My tastes cover a wide spectrum, but I'm a child of the 70s and 80s. My Dad got me started with his stellar record collection - Moody Blues, Cream, Deep Purple, Beatles, The Who, Uriah Heep among others. When I started finding my own tastes, it was U2, R.E.M., The Clash, and then the Pixies. But later in life, I discovered jazz, the blues (I should say re-discovered, thanks to the British musicians that stole the Blues), bluegrass and outlaw country.
Most likely Thompson.
They posted some workout result photos a few weeks back. It ain't fat. They've all put on muscle mass.
I should ask him for permission to set some of those gems to music!
As for Bowie, my favorite is Scary Monsters - but picking a favorite is like picking your favorite Beatles, Dead or Stones record. They're all pretty fuckin' good.
No apology necessary. If Sagarin rates the 5 games they've played 43 spots higher than the schedule we've played, I'd like some of what he's smoking. Their schedule is comparable, but slightly tougher. AND, the one game that pumps that "Strength" of their schedule is #5 Utah, who blew their doors off. Yes, that was a tough test - a little tougher clearly than going to Va Tech and winning by 18 - but you failed that test miserably.
BYU had a much tougher slate of games, and then traveled quite a way to play a noon game. That's why people were saying they looked tired. That and the fact that if you watched the game, they looked tired. They were a step slow on almost every play.
Dude, we were totally simpatico on that one! The lyrics to Ziggy were exactly what I was imagining >>>
He had little to no success before he hurt his ankle. Unlike Sudfeld, he did not have that injury coming into the game.
NO worries, their server can handle the 27 internetters that care enough about Md football to comment.
Thanks, Jonathan! And great job on this breakdown, Kyle would be proud!!
It's still early, but I very much like our D's chances against their pathetic offense and that refurbished QB they got in the bargain bin at Hawkeyes R Us. Their D is stout, but our offense will be rolling by then, I have no doubt.
Utah was their one good chance at a solid win, and they ended up on the wrong side of a 27-10 beat down.
I've been encountering his posts for the past few months, and I very rarely understand anything he's saying. It's like Duran Duran lyrics or very esoteric poetry. They don't make sense, but I bet they'd sound great if sung by Bowie or Roger Daltrey.
