  • Please take appropriate precautions when using The Portal.   https://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com/2019/4/19/18412186/the-transfer-portal-a-users-guide
  • If my family could have afforded it, I would have taken my acceptance at Penn. I don’t think that would have helped my rooting interests all that much.
  • It's time to run up the score. https://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com/2019/4/11/18306346/edsbs-charity-bowl-day-four-blowout-engaged
  • If you're not careful with this strategy, you end up with higher-wage coach than you budgeted and no ability to transfer her to Borussia Dortmund.  
  • And Ohio U. Let's keep it that way. https://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com/2019/4/10/18304591/edsbs-charity-bowl-2019-day-three-update
  • We're beating the heck out of the imposter institution in Coral Gables. https://twitter.com/newampaths/status/1116025135083995139
  • This is an occupational hazard of having a great young coach at Miami where there is no committment to basketball******.  But Coach Duffy did good things here and left the program in much better shape than she found it.  Hopefully that will make it …

  • That might be one of fastest coaching departures ever. Didn’t see a single one of her recruits see their junior year. Best of luck. She was a favorite of mine. I thought we’d get one more year out of her. The release on this sounds like Miami was ca…

  • Student news reporting is still a learning exercise, and in that spirit, I reached out to the authors via email to suggest that the first paragraph is too conclusory and recommend that they take the opportunity to clarify it.  They get around to men…

  • A bunch of grown men behind keyboards tearing down a 19 year old kid for chasing his dream, no matter how far-fetched it might be. Good job guys. Jack has obviously had a hell of a time getting through to Nike, especially in both of their second se…
  • AAF didn't have that much upside.  According to published reports, the average annual salary was supposed to be around $75,000.  I get why some folks don't have much sympathy for former Division 1 athletes trying to extend their sports careers.  But…
  • My recollection is that a major factor behind the new Goggin project was that the old rink stood on prime academic real estate that the university wanted to repurpose for classroom buildings.  The project was sold to the trustees and our political s…
  • While it is true that Goggin generates more non-athletics revenue than other Miami facilities, it still requires about a $2.2 million allocation from student general fees to support its operations.  You could argue that's a fair allocation for its u…
  • Lots of rumblings on basketball twitter this afternoon that Ron Hunter will be the next coach at Tulane.  
  • It's perfectly possible to love Miami sports as much as you do without engaging in magical thinking about Miami's level of resources or fan interest.  Over the twenty-plus years since I helped Steve found this site, I've provided that perspective --…
  • Student attendance and the on field/court/ice product both blow, yet applications for admissions have never been higher, and we're admitting really talented freshman classes.  It's almost as if the overwhelming majority of Miami's students are picki…
  • WNIT game and Green Beer Day on the same day! WNIT game a year ago was also played on Green Beer Day! Vox, I believe this is another “Miami Tradition” that can be added to the list. Funny story, I was talking to a friend, over the weekend, how fo…

  • Is this the same Nike Sibande that no one here had a single good thing to say about all season long?  
  • Try not to slur your speech during the broadcast, sir.

  • Well, that should be a ratings bonanza for the Four Letter.

  • BG's student-funded subsidy is about $450 per person less than ours. https://www.cleveland.com/datacentral/2019/03/how-bowling-green-raised-and-spent-money-on-sports-in-2017-2018.html
  • Miami hasn't been hurting for applicants, thanks to (1) joining the Common Application, (2) aggressive out-of-state recruiting, and (3) international students.  There are diminishing returns to the first two, and the third one is tailing off due to …
  • Kent is hitchhiking to Louisiana?  
  • Bowling Green said no thanks to the minor ones. I don't see why. They were picked last coming into this season and greatly overachieved. Why not accept a postseason bid and build toward next season? Because the lower-tier tournaments are money pi…
  • A lot of kids borrow that money.  And having over $5000 in extra student loans over four years to support an athletic department that essentially nobody cares enough to watch isn't sustainable.
