    To be fair to Jim at the time, literally any functioning quarterback at any level of football is “better” than Jon O’Korn.

    New deal for Michigan AD calls for $350K in annual retirement contributions. Man that'd be nice

    It’s totally normal for chief executives to set up a third party site with the specific intent to violate the public records laws that govern their schools. Totally normal and totally illegal.

    Also, this is a surprisingly dumb attempt to do it. Documents become public when a public official creates them while performing public business, regardless of where the public official decides to host them.

    Hopefully, the Washington Post sees this through.

    WaPo sent a public records request to the 13 public universities to gain access to documents created during the conference decision to suspend and then restart the football season.

    Documents generated by public university officials which concern finances are among the most quintessentially public documents subject to various state public disclosure laws.

    The Big Ten Presidents thought it would be a good idea to purposely attempt to evade those laws by communicating through a third party portal.

    Michigan’s President goes as far as asking whether he can affirmatively destroy what he already has created.

    Every set of statutes has exceptions to keep trade secret, business plans, and other information confidential if disclosure may compromise the business plans of a school.

    Rather than rely on the exceptions and comply with the laws, the Big Ten chose to try to evade them completely.

    And I hope a judge burns them for it.

    I guess I’m missing why I should care other than I assume the presidents did it in order to protect themselves from their own rabid football fanbases when their vote became public.

    Schlissel should be lauded for limiting the amount of 2020 Michigan football forced upon America.

    I think people should care that schools do this about stuff that's important. It's a bad look.

    The discussion on whether to play football during a pandemic being moved off emails in an attempt to keep them private doesn't seem that scary to me, but I don't live in Ohio and get worked up about such things.

    They knew the open records laws and knew the records they were creating were subject to the laws. They intentionally used a third party site to break the laws.

    Yeah the process of what they did is concerning for sure. This all seems to stem back to the decision made in terms of the anger from the OSU fanbase, though.

    i assume this type of thing is done much more often than this, it just doesn’t involve football so no one cares.

    From reading that story, I'm kind of more struck by how dumb they are than the process. If you know your email is public record, those are some really stupid things to say over emails. Schlissel looks completely incompetent in that story.

    They should have all been fired for going back on their original - correct - decision to not play. If this record shit can help punish them in any way I’m all for it.

    I think we’re all going to look back and thank OSU and their fans for holding the Big Ten to the highest moral, ethical, and legal standards. Their unwavering commitment to these standards is admirable.

    Never forget, Randy Wade sacrificed his son’s status as a first round corner to play a 2020 season where his son played poorly enough to drop to fourth or fifth round. Selflessly, he did it for all of you.​

    This is some stupid shit if they believe deleting emails relieves them of reporting. Schlissel should be fired. Not for hiding things but for showing that level of ignorance.

    A couple years ago, I was in Battle Creek Michigan at the time the local minor league baseball team was running a Bring Your Gun to the Ballpark 2nd Amendment night promotion.

    Never question how crazy Michigan gets the more rural it gets.

    A WR is, some think it's Jackson. There's been no real details about whom it is just that it was someone who was passed up on the depth chart recently.

    odds the other 13 Big Ten presidents put him up for conference commissioner? would be worse than Warren.
