Get locked out?
That and other fun prizes.

At least we'll still be able to demonize the NCAA for things out of their control.

The NCAA could have avoided all this years ago.

Oh NCAA... Just when you think they may have learned something, they pick a fight over something like this.

If the NCAA can prove he lied, good for the NCAA.

If the NCAA is just pissed that Harbaugh did not remember what happened or they can't prove he lied, then shame on the NCAA for being petty.

I'm far more inclined to take the side of coaches in these scenarios (outside of the flagrant and habitual rule breakers), largely due to how petty, spiteful, and obsessed with arbitrary minutiae the NCAA is.

I could see, hypothetically:

NCAA: (asks about infractions)
Harbaugh (annoyed): "I don't know what you're talking about"
NCAA: (reiterates)
JH: "I told you I don't know what you're talking about"

NCAA claims he lied, Harbaugh claims they are full of it.  I'd be SHOCKED if the NCAA has proof he lied.  Harbaugh is many things but I don't think he's blatantly stupid or dense.

He acknowledged the violations. He apologized for them. I am sure Michigan will accept the penalties the NCAA levies.

But the NCAA wants to admit he purposely lied when talking to investigators. Cmon...

Since there are hypotheticals on the thread anyways:

NCAA: "Did you know about XYZ happening on 5/1/22?"
JH: "I don't know anything about it"
NCAA: "We have an e-mail sent by you to the AD on 6/5/22 stating you know about XYZ"
JH: "Ummmmm"

I tend to think the NCAA is making a mountain out of a mole hill here, but since nobody here knows the facts it is unfair to assume the NCAA is in the wrong.

Let's leave the lazy, juvenile and click bait attacks on the NCAA to the media.

I'm sure Michigan football will be slammed just as hard as Memphis, Kansas, Louisville, and Arizona basketball were.

I’m sure Michigan should be terrified

What was everyone's favorite part of the Ed Reed Era at Bethune-Cookman?

I thought this was a pretty good article about Reed at Bethune-Cookman.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/columnist/mike-freeman/2023/01/22/ed-reed-wrong-shaming-bethune-cookman-hbcus-departs-coach/11096689002/

I think the only thing the article was missing was attention to sports investment/infrastructure and success.  Reed wasn't talking about Bethune as an academic institution or about its P&L.  I saw a number of takes on it over the weekend from college sports people and the sentiment was that he has very valid points, but he also handled it in a terrible way and deserved to be canned cause you can't publicly disrespect your employer like that.  Both can be true.

Interestingly, the team has started a petition to reinstate him.

Former Badger wide receiver convicted of murdering 2 women.  I wonder if it was at an Autozone.

He was out of jail on parole when the murders happened, having served time for abducting his daughter at gunpoint.

Wussy-ball for ACC

https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/luke-decock/article271775287.html?ac_cid=DM756730&ac_bid=2003256063

Coming off a year in which the ACC played 10 road games at non-Power 5 opponents — and lost three of them — schools received new guidance from the league office: Don’t.

While the nonconference portions of the schedules to be released Monday are often set years if not decades in advance, the ACC has asked schools to schedule most, if not all, of their future nonconference road games at either Power 5 teams or Army.

That sounds simple enough, except it can cost anywhere from $500,000 to $1 million to buy a home game against even a low-level FBS team, and playing home-and-homes or two-for-ones are often the best balance between finances and, to be blunt, wins.

Hahaha. The ACC locks the schools into the 5th best TV deal in the P5, then askes them to spend more money on buy games.

(I know the schools voted for the TV deal but what a mess the ACC has become. And what, 12 more years of this?)

Perhaps the wackiest stories (and contract provision) in the college football offseason so far:

https://theathletic.com/4161149/2023/02/06/brian-ferentz-contract-changes/?source=pulsenewsletter&campaign=6089622

Iowa offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz received a $50,000 pay cut and a designated performance objective to average at least 25 points per game while the program wins at least seven games, athletics director Gary Barta announced Monday.

Ferentz, the eldest son of head coach Kirk Ferentz and the offensive coordinator since 2017, officially is supervised by Barta in order to comply with state and university nepotism laws. Brian Ferentz’s salary dropped to $850,000 from $900,000. With an eight percent raise after participating in the Music City Bowl, Brian Ferentz initially was contracted to make $972,000 this year.

After one year with the program, every Iowa football assistant is on a two-year rolling agreement, but Brian Ferentz’s deal now is halted on June 30, 2024. According to the contract amendment, if designated performance objectives are met, Brian Ferentz’s deal will return to the prior two-year rolling agreement terms, along with a one-time lump sum bonus and base salary adjustment. If Brian Ferentz fails to meet either performance marker, his employment ends June 30, 2024.

Iowa averaged 17.7 points per game this year to rank No. 123 nationally. In 2021, the Hawkeyes averaged 23.4 points per game, ranking 99th. Still, with one of the country’s top defenses, Iowa won a combined 18 games over the two-year period, including a Big Ten West Division crown in 2021. This year, the defense scored six of the team’s 25 touchdowns (24 percent).

Brian Ferentz has led the Hawkeyes to solid scoring seasons previously. In 2020, Iowa averaged 31.8 points per game to rank second among Big Ten teams. In 2018, Iowa averaged 31.2 points per game to rank fourth in the Big Ten.
