If Delany really wants to shut up the southern cry-babies, he should also start mentioning 4-year-guaranteed scholarships as a reciprocal action (in addition to oversigning, grayshirting, "flipping" committed players, and 7-on-7 camps). "Sure we'll agree to a new bylaw outlawing satellite camps if you agree to a bylaw that requires guaranteed-4-year scholarships."

Watch how quick satellite camps become a non-issue.

I also wish Urban would rethink his position on satellite-camps. How long ago was it that he chastised the league for not being competitive enough in recruiting? Well, it appears some programs are taking that BTN money and showing what they can do with it. IMO the quadrangle-of-hate schools should be all over these satellite camps.

Last, I love, love, love that Swarbrick has come out in favor of satellite camps. Hey, ACC... how do you feel about having the Irish in your conference now? Not feeling the love... well, get used to it. This will be one of many dick moves that you'll have to endure from that school in South Bend.

Someone help me out please. I see the youtube link to that NY sword-maker in the "THOSE WMDs" section. But DJ also did another reference to a sword-maker in a recent Skull Session. I can't find it for the life of me. It was a link to the guy's home page.

This is really bugging me. Anyone know where it is? Thanks.

I agree 100%. Mauti wasn't the world-beater that those jackholes thought he was.

Plus, I think Fragel's blocking was legit in real-time. You have to slow that play down by a factor of 5 to make it look like a hold. IOW, if it was holding it happened so quick that a ref couldn't have caught it.

That's one of the many reasons for my dislike of Nit fans. For them to not cry officiating, every call would have to go in their favor. Reasonable football fans have no expectation of that ever happening. (In hindsight, Notre Dame fans expect that as well.)

Scottie is right on the money.

In a no-holds-barred fight, the Jiu-Jitsu (which is basically Judo without forms) would almost always end in a fracture if you're fighting against someone as skilled as Rousey. And at that Bantamweight class (125lbs to 135lbs), there is no better practitioner than Rousey -- male or female.

I really believe Dana White should start letting Rousey compete against men if she so desires. She most likely would rule the men's Bantamweight class. Possibly the Featherweight class (135lbs to 145lbs) as well. Hell, she'd probably make a dent in the Lightweight class (145lbs to 155lbs) if she chose to fight up that far. She's that good.

Okay, I'm going to nominate a show that just started last night. Fox has a track record of putting shows on the air that are cool and funny and then gives them no support once they are floundering. Last night they aired the funniest show I've seen since Community went off the air -- "Last Man on Earth". It's on Sunday nights. Set your DVR's now cause this show is too good to last very long. I lol'ed many many times while watching.

The truth is that the zealots have never been in hiding. Based on the outcry the moment they removed the statue, I knew at some point it was going to be restored or replaced.

The only thing we can do to check the cult is to make sure they know we haven't forgotten about their black stain. Otherwise they are going to operate on the false assumption that their whitewashing was a success.

I was thinking Buckeye fans should wear a black armband when we play them. Am open to suggestions though.

I have a request for my fellow 11W'ers. Can we refrain from using the term "JoePa" to refer to Paterno? That nickname is a term of affection of which I have none. I assume we're all on the same page in that regard.

Paterno would be joining Spanier, Curley, and Schultz in the charges of perjury, conspiracy and child endangerment were he still alive today. And although they may never be convicted in a Pennsylvanian courtroom, outside of PA all four have been deemed guilty by the court of public opinion. Their actions don't pass the smell test.

If we don't have any significant injuries, Meyer will drink Harbaugh's milkshake in 2015 and they could play the game at the gates of perdition for all I care.

Honestly, the Big House doesn't intimidate opposing teams as much as Happy Valley. Wolverines jiggling car keys isn't going to give them a home field advantage. Besides the Spartans are going to beat the uppity of them many weeks before we get the chance (also at the Big House).

Comment 10 Feb 2015

One more thing about that "tangled web" tweet. Seems like a pretty innocent slam at a rival, doesn't it?

But think about it for a second... who do you think Harbaugh intended that tweet for? It's not Meyer, the Ohio State football staff,  Buckeye fans, or even Wolverine fans. That was a message to the 2016-? recruits that both Ohio State and Michigan are working on. The message -- Meyer and his staff are not trustworthy.

This wasn't lost on Meyer and company. That's why Pantoni responded with his own tweet right away.

Comment 10 Feb 2015

The NCAA rules aren't set up to deal with social media. So while what he did before wasn't technically violations of recruiting rules,  many PAC coaches argued his tweets violated the intended spirit of the rules.

Harbaugh very often would tweet stuff during dead periods that pretty much everyone knew was directed at specific recruits. But he would do it without including the subject's twitter address. And they would get the message because they were following him.

Kind of like his "tangled web" tweet was a jab at Meyer without specifically mentioning Meyer.

Anyways, we better get used to this bs as that was how he rolled at Stanford.

Comment 10 Feb 2015

I agree with thajinn. Wilcher's response was indicative of his leanings as a UM alum and former UM football player. He has to be getting grief that none of his players are signing with Michigan. I see his response as an effort to change that direction with his players.

The fact that Harbaugh saw fit to provide one of his snide twitter responses might even give some credence that there was collusion between the two.

(BTW, we better prepare ourselves for the fact that Harbaugh is going to use twitter to abuse NCAA recruiting rules. That was his MO at Stanford. Several PAC coaches complained about this on multiple occasions.)

Comment 01 Feb 2015

I thought it was karmic payback for the fact that their fans were blowing freaking airhorns in the team's hotel lobby at 4 in the freaking morning.

Seriously, though, people forget that interception would have been overturned had the replay booth not lost all their video feeds. (According to the Big Ten, procedure is to check all feeds minutes prior to gametime. Which they did.) Giving the amount of shenanigans going on in State College that weekend, it wouldn't surprise me if a PSU fan was responsible for that "unfortunate" incident. Stupid idiots.

Comment 30 Jan 2015

Okay. Confession time. Preseason, I thought we'd lose one game and was 90% sure it would be to Penn State. I told about a handful of people this. And then VTech happened which made me think that we might lose to Michigan State as well.

After we pasted Wisconsin and got into the playoff, I was totally onboard with the notion that we would win it all.

So looking at the gif on this site: Bosa Hit on Mariota.

By the time Mariota releases the ball, Bosa takes a step and a half .... That's not enough time to stop momentum imo. And that's why there wasn't a call. Keep in mind that the gif is in slow motion.
