Don't get me wrong this has happened at every major college program in the country, but Michigan has been the one that has stuck out because of the product they put on the field.

Not a Roger Goodell fan by any means, but I applaud the action that he took during the lockout when he reduced his salary to $1. Doing this saved a ton of small to mid level paying jobs in the NFL during that time. Maybe some ADs can take a lesson from this.

Brandon himself was hired at $560,000 a year, will earn $900,000 in 2014 and is predetermined to receive $50,000 raises in both 2015 and 2016 (these are all base salaries that don't include his bonus opportunities which extend well into six figures). If Michigan parts ways with him prior to that he will be rewarded with a $3MM buyout. Brandon's predecessor Bill Martin made $380,000 when he retired

Greedy Pigs.

Was just listening to Spielman on sports on 97.1 and he made some great comments when asked about OSU making the playoff. He stated that if either OSU or MSU goes undefeated he would give OSU a 25% chance of getting in and MSU a 50% chance. Next, he said that ND is the team that we have to worry and OSU would need them to lose twice to increase our chances.  ND ending with 1 loss (either to Florida St. or USC) would still be ahead of the OSU because of the strength of schedule.

I was a fan that was skeptical with the pickups of Rutgers and Maryland coming into the B1G. Damn, was I wrong. Both are solid teams, and we can not have defensive lapses like we had at the end of the second half, which I put 95% of the blame on the coaches for that touchdown. 

For the Rutgers game this week against Michigan I am really interested to see what the spread for that game will be because they are a really physical football team on both sides of the ball. I believe that Michigan will see a similar team to what they saw from Minnesota last week.

As a former alumni of the university I would hate to see Ohio State affected by ticket sales like many other universities are seeing, but I have to say they have become money pigs just like many other universities across the US and the NCAA in general. For example, I was in Columbus over the Va Tech weekend and was looking to scalp some tickets and noticed an $120 face value on a few tickets. How in the world can average buckeye family of 4 or 5 individuals afford this, along with parking and food. I know they have privatized parking recently, but in the span of 4 years the cost to buy an RV parking spot has gone from $20 to over $100. Just can't imagine seeing this trend of recent price increase not affecting OSU in the near term.

I'm going to second the vote for 'Walmart Wolverines'

Anybody get a quote from Gordan Gee on this?

"The fathers are holy on Sunday, and they're holy hell on the rest of the week,"

"You just can't trust those damn Catholics on a Thursday or a Friday, and so, literally, I can say that,"

I don't agree with the payment of players by any means but I don't understand why the NCAA is dragging their feet with this issue. Still can not believe that it took til the year 2014 for them to start giving athletes a 4-year scholarship guarantee. Another thing that can be done would be to give parents transportation and lodging for gameday weekends. This cost would be fractions of a percent on the amount of money that is generated. I want to know how a low income family is going to be able to afford the travel expenses to see their child play in this four team playoff if they end up playing in the semi-final and final game.

The Bucks were listed at 10.5 before the Braxton injury, but I'm not really sure what we have fallen to since then. Anybody have that updated line? I am already locked in with the over +10.5 with them and would still make that bet after the injury news.

ESPN has been straight garbage for about the last 10 years. Its become a station where all they broadcast is people giving their opinion, which is what people are sick of.  I believe that ESPN has single handily had a huge influence on how people perceive players such as Tebow and Manziel by constantly over broadcasting "non-stories." What happened to the days where you could turn on sportcenter and watch highlights for the entire broadcast?

I thought that it was funny that a media reporter asked the NBA commish 'what he was going to do to get more black owners in the NBA?'

If Craft cant step up and hit that wide open jumper at the top of the key when his man is playing five feet off I do not see this team making it any farther than the sweet 16 IMO.  During games in which our offense has struggled (michigan 2nd half & Minnesota 1st half) Craft and Williams defenders have completely clogged the driving lanes for the other players.
