So the key seems to be to use really high, verifiable retail prices to set the stipend amount but make sure there are plenty of options to get their items at a steep discount when they actually go to pay for them.
Or an enema to relieve the constipation.
While it is one thing to go against the grain it is another to go fully over the edge. When the rest of your buddies see MSU being at best a low Top 20 team and not one, not two, but three other teams in the division are ranked ahead of the one you pick to win it there is not much hope that so much could go wrong for all three teams to have your pick magically win the division. MSU has to go on the road to NW, Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Michigan. The only hard game on paper that they get at home is Penn State.
I am with you on this. As beloved as he was for winning, Meyer had his warts with the Ohio State fan base. Too loyal to certain assistants and players, tended to not give the younger players the chances the fan base thought they deserved, needlessly created QBGate, would go into a shell at times when things were really tight, leaned too heavily on his running QBs when he had really strong RBs, would have unexplained losses that you just did not see with Saban. I think all of those things are helping the fans to move on quicker than most thought. Day is also going to be given some latitude given what has happened to his QB room.
I am not one who believes that every captain has to be a starter. When you name multiple captains you are really acknowledging multiple leaders of the team. Leadership comes in many forms. Star sales people or star scientists do not automatically translate to being leaders nor are leaders necessarily the best at sales or R&D. Too many organizations make the mistake of taking people who were really good at a particular skill set and moving them into leadership positions just to be able to justify paying them more. A really good leader may be the player who constantly has the right work ethic, leads by example, is a really positive influence but just does not have the physical tools to be on the field as a 1.
Hill as the reliable receiver who will occasionally make you pay for underestimating him. Mack for the catch you desperately need to get a first down. Olave for the unexpected back breaker, and Wilson for the spectacular "where did that come from?"
Especially when someone else will do the work for them! Feels less dirty than having to go to those sites directly.
Agreed. Not buying this stock based only on its potential. Will buy in when I see actual returns reflect projections.
Agreed, their lives need to be valued exactly the same by the university when it comes to mental health assistance.
