When no one is watching your games, it does not matter "how" you win.

The reason is related to student retention. Student retention goes into the ranking.

It does make some money, but you also have to consider that the students are only renting the place during the semester. Students are paying for 30 weeks, which is 4.5 months ($4,500 by your cost estimate). If I have the apartment all year (typical lease), this would be the same cost as 12 months rent at $375. The university is using the higher rent to recoup the costs when the housing is vacant.

If only they had that way of thinking when they signed a 3 year contract extension with Edsall over the summer.

Comment 09 Oct 2015

It is the classic move that all mid-tier programs make. They think, "Hey, we can do better than 8-4 every year." Minnesota fired Glen Mason and hired Tim Brewster, who promptly caused the program to nose dive. This happens all of the time.

People should expect IU to be a force this year. They won the SEC East last year.

I think a summary of your point is this:

Our team is pressing. We are exerting so much effort to make big plays and go A to B with 4-6 seconds of relentless effort that we are making mistakes.

Our coaches are pressing too. We are trying to "force" a player to get a certain touch.

I am also interested in this. 11W shirts would be an awesome replacement.

Comment 03 Oct 2015

You can't convince me that the number 8 is for championships. Nike knows Gareon Conley is a future superstar. Next you will tell me the number 15 is because it is 2015 and not for Zeke Elliot.

What are they going to do next year in 2016? The number 16 and pretend it is not for JT Barrett.

It's simply a different level of fandom.

No. I think it is a different level of common sense. When is the last time a fan had the power to fire a coach or coordinator? How long ago was it that fans were singing the praises of Ed Warriner?

In 2005, a Northwestern alumnus wearing a USC shirt saw me wearing an Ohio State shirt. He asked me, "How do you root for them [Ohio State]?"

"With all my heart!" When the defense is on the field, I make noise. I love the South stands. They stand and cheer the entire game.

If there are any 11W members with the financial status of Donald Trump, please use some of your billions to help educate our fans through radio and television ads that when our defense is on the field that everyone needs to make the Shoe deafening.

If the scoreboard operator visits 11W, please stop showing replays on the board and use whatever means you can to increase the volume level of the stadium. When the Shoe is rocking, no stadium is better.

If the Ohio State ticket vendor visits 11W, please change the location of the student section to section AA behind the visiting team's bench.

You as a fan have no control over who gets the ball, who starts, and which coaches are hired/fired? This is not Fantasy Football. Stop thinking that you do. Instead, identify your locus of control. You have a voice. Use it during the game when you can make a difference when you can help cause a false start. Use it to wow recruits with the passion of our fans.

What have you done to beat Michigan today? Go Bucks!!
