LIST OF WWE PERSONNEL?!?
I know nothing about Twitter except that it confuses me. Get off my lawn. However, after seeing this tweet from Ian Rapoport...
I had to respond...
I cannot fathom the denial. It's bizarre. However, when you consider what recruits will think ---the NFL desperately clawing their way to Jim's doorstep only to be denied so that he can coach them---it's all good.
So, what with with having a 99% shot at bringing Mr. Harbaugh to Michigan, let's shift our attention to next season. Quarterback play is always vital and for the first time in a few years we don't already know who our starter will be at this stage. If Morris isn't deemed the answer, how would we feel about taking a stab at a graduate transfer? Who are some potential options?
Which tradition do you think Jim and his family celebrated over the last couple of weeks?
The Harboughs were raised Catholic, but I have a hard time imagining Jim wishing some one a Merry Christmas or good tidings. My money is on Festivus. I have to imagine that he would love the Airing of Grievances and Feats of Strength. Those sound like the igredients of a typical 49ers practice or film session. Lastly, there are things known as Festivus miracles. I'd say that what he has done with SDSU, Stanford and the 49ers are all Festivus miracles. Before this year, his schedule in December at the 49ers is 11-3.
Coincidence? I think not.
Festivus for the rest of us? Thoughts?
The NFL Grinch---a bitter, grouchy, internet-dwelling creature with a heart "two sizes too small"—heard all the noisy coaching festivities in Blueville. Annoyed, he decided to steal Christmas.
He pretended to be Santa Claus. He brought a bag of Super Bowl rings to Santa Clara (no, not Santa’s sister but the city where JH worked). Offering this bag of tricks in trade, the Grinch tried to steal from JH the 49 million presents that Blueville gave him. To do so, the NFL Grinch concocted not a crafty lie but a meaningless truism. He argued to JH that “Only in the NFL can you win the NFL Championship.” It was like saying: “ Only in Alabama can you visit the Alabama State Capitol.” or “Only at Grant’s Tomb can you see Grant’s final resting place.” Inhabitants of Blueville instantly saw the NFL Grinch’s ruse for what is was: just empty words from somebody full of himself
But the residents of Blueville worried still that the Grinch would steal JH and ruin their Christmas. They worried until a sports statistician working for JH showed him why the SB rings were fool’s gold. He pointed out that
-One of the best teams in NFL history went 18-0 but did not get a SB ring.
-One of the greatest coaches ever--Bill Belichick—who had won 3 SBs---has not won a single SB so far in the past ten years despite each year being atop the AFC East
-Oakland never even had a winning record for the past 12 years and to win a SB in 6 years would take more than a miracle. Suppose a new miracle worker coach could turn them into the Seattle Seahawks in 6 years. Say, their preseason SB odds increased constantly from their preseason 200-1 to 6-1 (the odds for Seattle). Even then, the chances of a single SB win during ALL of the first five years would be 0.05. —that’s less than the chances of winning a roulette bet on zero (0 ,00). During the coach’s final, 6th year—after he’s turned them into the Seahawks-- the probability of a SB win still would be only 0.14—about the chances you’d win in Vegas by betting on craps (2,3,12).
So, JH saw that the NFL Grinch’s argument about the SB was BS. Looking at his friends and family, as well as the young players and recruits in Blueville, he also realized that Christmas meant a bit more to him than a bag of rings from the NFL Grinch. JH then rejoined the joyous inhabitants of Blueville, who were singing the Victors. They all thanked JH for defeating the Grinch and saving Christmas. Then, in the far above clouds, the honorary major of Blueville—named bl-Ufer said: “God bless his cotton pickin' maize and blue heart.”
One of ESPN's college football analysts was on the radio this morning talking about OSU's QB situation next year. They mentioned the possibility Braxton Miller graduates early and transfers to play somewhere else next year. Would you like to see our next HC go after him?
If all these 70-85% gut feelings are accurate, then we know our next HC has run read option in San Fran. I think Shane and our other QBs have the talent to be good, but I don't know if they would be our best option come late August. I assume we could deal with a Buckeye transferring in since there seemed to not be a large, vocal opposition to Herman in the head coaching posts. Is it worth it to "recruit" Braxton Miller?
