I stopped listening to the show when T-Bone started to bring up soccer every chance he could in the off-season.  I know ESPN is trying to tell Americans we like soccer now, and it's working on a lot of people, but their message still hasn't caught on with me.

That is my thought.  An effective system allows the leader to communicate feedback in real-time.  I'm sure these things are designed more to get the reviewed to think about their performance rather than to allow the reviewer to air his grievances.  But only doing it once a year seems like a pointless formality with little impact.  Personally, if I only do something once a year, it has little staying power (think New Year's Resolutions).

I like the Vapor and the Alpha, the Lunar beast look kinda generic. It would be cool to see gray replace the white, but if they beat MSU and TTUN, they could play in orange Crocs for all I care.

I don't see how they are so hard to remember.  My two year old can do them.  Plus, if confusion is a primary complaint, how are you going to compare it to the haka, which is way more involved? 

The Hive was cool until everybody started ripping it off.  Credit the OSU staff for originality on this one.  Maybe college students can just have some fun and try to participate instead of being hipsters about it.

This reminds me of something I read Tim Floyd (UTEP coach) said last week:

http://coachingsearch.com/article?a=Tim-Floyd-blasts-radio-host-goes-off-about-college-transfers

- Per Floyd, there have been 581 transfers in college hoops so far (UTEP has 3).

- Per Floyd, last year, there were 79 teams with three transfers and 74 with four (UTEP had 1).

- Per Jim Larrañaga, over the last two years, 344 Division I programs (out of 351) have had at least one player leave.

There are also excerpts from other coaches.  They go on to say that these kids will play for multiple AAU teams at a time, sometimes three teams in the same day.  The whole culture that basketball players are being raised in seems very nomadic.  Expect transfer rates to increase.

If you keep a lot of files backed up and keep reinstalling them on your new computers it's possible you could have a bad file in your back ups.

Yes I have seen that and it is pretty amazing.  That and the virtual reality QB training systems they are developing are pretty intriguing teaching tools.  I believe it's just a matter of refinement and you will see those popping up everywhere in a few years.

The situation reminds me of the criticism Gordon Gee got when he joked he was happy Tressel didn't fire him.  People thought it was outrageous a college football coach would hold power over the college president, even though Gee's comment was in jest.  

Gary Pinkel just turned Gordon Gee's joke into reality.  He backed the students over the president.  Either Pinkel or the president had to go.

Interesting take on economics chancellor. The OSU athletic department is self-sufficient because of the "overpaid" coach while Universities like yours raise tuition yearly because they throw away money like Rick Pitino at a strip club.

I think a lot of teams face these issues more often than you think...Urban just makes it public to take pressure off his players and put the responsibility on himself and the staff. You'll never hear him speak publicly about all the times he's out schemed the opponents, but goes without saying he's done that quite a few times.

That's a great entrance, but what's better than Enter Sandman in Lane Stadium?  Enter Sandman in the Shoe.  I got to see Metallica there in 2003.  Great concert, but it was weird being in Ohio Stadium without football.
