UM football and MSU basketball have the same recruiting problem. Lack of recent first round picks/big time pros is being used against them.
As well as Michigan has done in recruiting, NFL presence means so much now. To compete with Alabama, you better be cranking out NFL players.
Da'Shawn Hand to Alabama.
Da'Shawn handing picking now. #HandPicks

Good corners cost a hell of a lot more and are never traded in-season. RT @Attyg3
They need a corner more than a WR.

Still think Lions need to trade for WR. Burleson back after bye, but lost Broyles.
Calvin Johnson is the greatest receiver in the history of the NFL! #dropsthemic
Remember when Dez Bryant said he was as good as Calvin Johnson? Yeah, that was cray
If you haven't cut Marques Colston yet in your fantasy league...yeah, get on that.

I can accept that two self-imposed bowl bans deserves a break on scholarship penalties. What I’m struggling with is not vacating records.

Banowsky said UM's two self imposed bowl bans unprecedented & cooperation was commendable in reaching decision
NCAA basically confirmed Mike Garrett screwed up #USC

Bowl bans "were very big deal" & ACC title game ban "very big decision made by university & committee appreciated those decisions"
NCAA call on Miami is done. Have to think everyone involved on both sides of the matter would love to crawl in a hole and hide for 24 hours.
Summary: Miami helped itself tremendously w/ 2-year bowl ban (and ACC title game). Somewhere Mike Garrett has "nothing but a lot of envy."
And we thought morale was low amongst NCAA enforcement staff prior to today. Yeesh.
Pg. 20: Miami hoops coaches "visited a strip club w/ the booster in an effort to 'create donor relationships.'" (Dirty job but someone's...)
Either you understand why having sex on a yacht is an important part of the American dream or you don't. I can't teach that.
Miami confirms in a release that it will not appeal NCAA sanctions.
Quite a story in the Sun Sentinel today with Randy Phillips talking Nevin Shapiro: sun-sentinel.com/sports/um-hurr…
Echoing others, but after reading NCAA report on Miami, most amazing thing is how Frank Haith got only a 5-game suspension. Feathery soft.
Here's an interesting line from the NCAA release re: Miami: "Staff members felt comfortable breaking rules.'' Alrighty then

Based on the location of Josh Freeman's throws tonight, Minnesota needs to start scouting 6-foot-7 wideouts immediately.
Prince Fielder. Cripes. I hope Scott Boras does refunds.
Don't give me the Veras deal as the Tigers addressing the pen at the deadline. Nobody believed that actually fixed a legit problem.
Hence why Tigers fans were scratching their heads when the trade deadline came and went without addressing the bullpen.
