With the delayed suspension, the NCAA does it again. I really wish the NCAA wouldn't be so transparent with regards to their existence as a money-grabbing organization.
For those who are saying the rules that the OSU players broke show that players should be paid, I have to ask one question: WHY IS IT A RIGHT TO GET A TATOO?!?!?!?!
So, I caught portions of College Football Live on ESPNU (I think) a couple days the past week and they were talking about Maryland possibly hiring Mike Leach. With all of the discussion about how great a coach he is and how he would be a good fit with the Terps, nothing was mentioned about why he is not coaching Texas Tech anymore. I'm not saying he did anything wrong, because I have no idea, but how can that not be part of the discussion? ESPN is as bad as the NCAA.
I have a lot of ideas of this whole Michigan Man issue regarding RR, but it would be a very long post. Nobody wants to read that. But, for those who say Bo wasn't a Michigan Man when he came here, I have two responses: 1) The high standards (on and off the field) may or may not have been part of the culture at M when Bo was hired, but M alums and the uni, as far as what I know, embrace what Bo stood for. If he wasn't a fit for the culture at the U, then he certainly helped to create the culture as we know as The University of Michigan. 2) RR did not, and has not, embraced the U traditions/culture. He came in knowing it was a great football job. But, anyone who cares about M doesn't care that it is a great football job. We care that it is a great place to be. This is not an SEC job, where you win and make alums happy. Winning is only part of it. Being a good Michigan Man is the other.
I saw a story on WBKB-TV (channel 11, Alpena) about the MSU-Alabama bowl game and they had three quick soundbites from Alabama players talking about the MSU team. All three said that MSU is like an SEC team. It was clear they were doing this as if to say it as a compliment. I really want the Big Ten to beat the SEC this year . Ugh
