Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
Not surprisingly Georgia is the feature. I had flipped to that game just as the ball was snapped on that 4th-and-18. All I could do was stare at my TV in complete stunned silence. Then I snapped back to reality and started texting everyone I knew to turn on CBS if they weren't already watching. Unreal.
And by us, I meant Brian himself.
This Week In Schadenfreude: Michigan Throws Itself In The Wood Chipper
I was on ND's Rivals board and saw this piece of schadenfreude that was just too good not to share. Enjoy:
I want everyone's honest answer.
If I were to tell you the following would happen under Kelly before he was hired, how many of you would have actually wanted to hire him.
He would lose ten games through two seasons.
He would oversee multiple player arrests during his first two and half seasons which would range from DUI to drug possession to assaulting a police officer.
His first three recruiting classes would finish #14, #10, and #20.
Of the total allowable allotment of scholarship players to offer during his first three years of 75, he would sign only 63 players, with two of those players being specialists.
Of those 63 players, six would no longer with the team (including the best player he has signed)which would bring his player total to 57 players over three years or an average of only 19 per year. Six players below what the average allotment would be.
Of those 57 players, 31 players would be rated three stars or lower and only five players would finish ranked in the Rivals top100.
Also contained in those classes would be 11 defensive backs, with only two players rated a four star and none in the Rivals top100.
I'll post the rest of that post down below as a comment.
Click on the link below and read through the thread. There's a couple more lengthy posts from the same guy. Other ND fans on that board accuse him of not being a ND fan and he goes off on them. Pure gold.
[on Kelly] Who are you going to get to replace him ? Seriously ? WHO??????
Who would want this job? It's like going to fight opponents who are on steroids with two hands tied behind your back.
USC, Ohio St, Michigan, Miami, FSU, Oklahoma, Texas, and the entire SEC have absolutely no restrictions. You don't need to know how to read. You don't have to go to class. They have majors like doobie rollin and pimpology. They can let anyone in, they can let anyone go. They have better looking girls who take their panties off easier. And on and on it goes.
It really is hilarious to say the least.
ND needs to drop those teams. ND needs to drop Michigan St. and Michigan as well.
Teams that ND should be playing every year are:
Duke, Minnesota, Rutgers, Army, Navy, Indiana, Rice, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, Boston College, Pitt, Washington St.
[on Rees] Hopefully this guy will get lost somewhere and never show up at ND again. Take Kelly with him.
Rees needs to be taken to the glue factory.
Any other items we can get a laugh out of on a Friday morning?
