Ugh awful.  I've seen cracked skull and broken vertebrae from contact like that.  Hopefully they don't have anything quite that drastic.

Anyone know if FIFA has looked at allowing an extra sub for concussions?  It seems like a worthwhile rule change to make to avoid players or other people taking undue risks to avoid using an early sub.

100% this.  I only hope that some smart NFL coach decides to fit his offense to his QB and not the other way around.  A lot easier to restructure your offense than it is to create a great QB with the attributes that most NFL teams are looking for.

In the B1G, yes, it was.  I was comparing the results of several of their sports in the B1G, so I wanted to differentiate football results from basketball results in that case.  I think most people could reasonably deduce that even if I could have worded it a little better.

Of course all of RG3's injuries came on passing plays...  Being an NFL QB of any type is tough.  Both Manning and Brady missed whole seasons due to injury and no one would accuse them of being particularly athletic.

I think if you look beyond the money sports, the answer is clearly yes.  But even in MBB and FB, they were reasonably competitive in the hardest division in football and are likely to be ranked in the top 3 in BB to start next year.  Clearly they have benefited financially, but they have returned the favor by being very solid athletically.  Look at some of the traditional B1G schools, some of them are literally only bringing history to the table.

If we get 3 post season games again he has a shot.  But I still think it's unlikely.  We have so many offensive weapons that are ready for big years that he shouldn't have to carry the load much.  Plus Curtis Samuel should be more of a real back up RB than we had all last year.

I am hoping for lots of blow outs to get the young Bucks lots of early playing time to build depth for later in the season.

Yeah the coaches think of him as an alpha dog type guy.  Turns out random internet guy doesn't know the kid as well as the people who have met him and talk to him all the time.

He has turned around much more hapless programs.  Michigan will be much improved over the next couple of years.  However I would be a lot more worried if we weren't in such good hands.

I am not sure we needed one given our ranking and number of recruits.  But if you wanted a leader for our class to finish things out, I think we just got one today in Mack.

Comment 06 Jun 2015

I don't even mind the negative recruiting because everyone is doing it.  But if you are going to do it, you better do it well.  Claiming the experience and accolades of a guy who couldn't hold down a job and got demoted from OC to WR coach isn't exactly high praise when comparing him to a guy whose 3 WRs that have graduated are all in the NFL and who just led a WR crew who torched everyone all year.

Also, my guess is that Mack sent this to Coach Smith after telling him he was committing to us tomorrow!!

Elika seems to think people should really lighten up on the Dave Brandon bashing:

Comment 01 Jun 2015

Obviously Ohio State fans won't get quite as worked up about him, but Kanell isn't much better than May.  He hates the SEC so that's why OSU fans might even like him.  But I would rather have analysts without agendas, regardless of which way the bias swings.

Here is a for instance:
