  1. By what magical process does an athlete getting paid by someone else make that athlete an employee of the school?
  2. There's a wave coming and it's up to the NCAA to ride it instead of fighting it
  3. Ah but are they officially licensed NBA ninja headbands? Haven't they been sticklers about un-licensed headbands in the past?
  4. Yeah, the way they were dripping this out here and there during the year, you could see it coming. It's a clever way to add something a little retro without trying to do a throwback to the late 80s look that no one reallly would be into, while not messing with the core of the primary uniforms. And hopefully it's a way to migrate away from the early 80s stuff for at least a couple years.
  5. With Dombrowski specializing in throwing money and prospects around to win as much as possible in the present, the Red Sox in tough luxury tax territory, and the seams showing this year, it's a good time to move from him anyway.
  6. I'm pleasantly surprised that there are so many coaches who are reasonable on this. And that last quote is just *chef's kiss*
  7. I'm all for third base coaches being aggressive- they all should be. But what was he thinking there? That throw didn't even have to be perfect to get the out- it just needed to be close enough.
  8. This is why they're so protective of the "student athlete" cover- it was made to keep athletes from being considered employees and duck workers' compensation and health claims way way way back. So now you get "full cost of attendance" as the means to give players stipends because it's a figure rooted somewhere in financial aid. The minute players are finally recognized as employees, all hell breaks loose for the NCAA. If it even gets close to that you know the lobbying efforts on Congress will go into overdrive
  9. And there's always a good sized gray area the covers the ends of major league rosters and the top end of minor league rosters- or in the NFL's case those guys who are in the practice squad/last cut range and the guys who are rostered.
  10. This Stallions is really good- love the subtle/not subtle arch. The horse profile goes for majestic rather than aggro.
  11. This is a promising start. Really hits all the elements. The forward hat, the exaggerated chin sticking out, the brow. Really gets the feel of those old style mascot logos.
  12. But remember, lurking in the background of legal pot is Big Ag.
  13. I can definitely picture a couple alts with this script coming- maybe white w/ headspoon, and a white-script version of the Players' Weekend jersey (though I'd really prefer a Chicago-script black).
  14. I think it's more that they don't recognize that people who are deadenders about the old name are going to be that, no matter what. But they want to appease them and please as many other people as possible so they keep choosing something bland in hopes that it works. In UND's case a much more explicitly North Dakota option would have have done a better job.
  15. I don't know that Deadspin readers are all that loyal to any particular writers but I would expect they're loyal to the tone/voice/ethos/whatever you want to call it of Deadspin.
