I took the quote as saying, "I [Coach Dantonio] owe a lot of thanks to Coach Tressel for teaching me how to operate a program so that I could be successful at Michigan State."

I don't think this is a slight at all.

A reminder for people that they can support 11W through buying items from the dry goods store or shopping at Amazon using the links at the bottom of the page.

My household's shopping habits have surely netted 11W at least 10 cents from the Amazon link.

From people outside of Kentucky, the draw of the hometown team is somewhat baffling. Why UK? My previous comment was trying to emphasize that inside the state borders UK is king. People in Kentucky don't recognize sports and other things outside of the state. My high school in Louisville sent students predominantly (estimate ~80%) to three schools (UK ~ 50%, U of L 20%, and Bellarmine 10%).

To be honest, Louisville always has a really strong tradition with college quarterbacks (Chris Redmon, Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Unitas, Brian Brohm, Jeff Brohm). I don't closely follow U of L sports currently, but I imagine that Coach Petrino will have a solid offense. The issue will be defense. Coach Strong turned a traditional weakness at U of L into a  strength (relative to the past) the last two years.

Comment 19 Jul 2014

Only people living in Louisville root for U of L. Most people in the state root for Kentucky. This is mainly because of the strong basketball tradition at UK. Even the city of Louisville has many UK supporters. So, it is not surprising to me that Damien Harris is actually a UK fan. Most people in the state of Kentucky do not appreciate that greater opportunities (scholastic and otherwise) exist outside the border.

Would Cleveland have enough cap space to get KLove next offseason?

#MilesToMichigan - fully onboard

Imagine the Domino's slogans that Les Miles would provide for Dave Brandon

Comment 15 Jul 2014

The author of the article states:

If Malzahn wants to send a low-cost statement to his team, then Marshall will sit against the Razorbacks, a team that will be breaking in a fourth defensive coordinator in the last four seasons (Robb Smith) and had one of the worst defenses in the SEC last season giving up 30.8 points per game.

If they were playing LSU or Alabama, he might not even be facing a single game.

Thinking they could add a math quiz for patrons to solve before being served. Would that encourage students to pay more attention in math class? The more beer you drink, the harder the questions will get.

The secondary ticket market is making/allowing Ohio State charge more. Ohio State is currently selling tickets for approximately $80. That leaves $141 worth of profit on the table. To combat this, Ohio State has started charging certain groups two prices. Lower price if you are willing to use your ID to get in the stadium (i.e., harder to sell to non-family members). Higher price if you don't want that burden (i.e., will most likely sell some of the tickets).

So, ask yourself, "if I made a widget and sold it for $40 and found out someone else was selling it for $100, what would I do?"

People suggests that it takes away from the family atmosphere, but the same tickets that you are wanting to be sold for less $40 would most assuredly be purchased by ticket resellers for huge profits. If you want less expensive tickets, buy more tickets than you need and sell them on the secondary market.
