    You'd think a conference with 3 of the Top 15 media markets would be important to the networks.

    Re: Still Complaining About ESPN...

    During last night's Michigan-State game I saw a video for the U of Michigan. While the announcer talked about their wonderful past and glorious future, a montage of famous alumni flashed on the screen... including that notable Michigan Man, John F Kennedy. Wait, what? President Kennedy went to Michigan?

    He made the first announcement of the Peace Corps on the steps of the Michigan Union. There’s a plaque there for it.

    So he's a Michigan alumnus? Can Rice claim him too, since he gave the famous Moon Speech there?

    Well Michigan has tried to claim it is the "Harvard of the West" before, and I believe in the Peace Corp speech, Kennedy joked about being an alum of the Michigan of the East, Harvard.

    No, it was a significant speech, which is why it’s noted.

    If Rice wants them in the promo video, so be it.

    If I follow this correctly... she called Trump a White Supremacist and disagreed with his call for fans to boycott the NFL because players weren't standing for the anthem. And now that an owner has put his foot down and agreed with Trump, she is upset and wants fans to boycott the NFL?

    So fan A is boycotting the NFL because players aren't standing. But at the same time, Fan B is boycotting the NFL because players are before forced to stand?

    Reading the New York Times, that's not exactly how it happened- she suggested that people boycott Jerry Jones' sponsors. Not the NFL, nor even the Cowboys. Just his sponsors.

    She was suspended for violating company social media guidelines.

    Here's the policy, unsurprisingly it's pretty vague http://a.espncdn.com/i/guidelines/es...lines-2017.jpg
