Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.
I am sure whoever watched the Colts-Chiefs game yesterday got reminded of that 2011 UTL TD by Denard

Question is pretty much in the title.
What are Michigan's chances of new additions to the 2014 recruiting class?
I know there is a chance to flip Vic Enwere and Jeff Jones. And what seems like a fading chance by the day at getting McDowell. I've pretty much given up on that.
Is there any news or rumors of scholarships freeing up by virtue of RS Juniors moving on?
In other 2014 recruiting news, ESPN.com's Tom VanHaaren reports that Michigan recently reached out to Penn State quarterback commit Michael O'Connor.
The four-star quarterback has recently reconsidered his decision to enroll early at Penn State in the wake of ex-coach Bill O'Brien's departure for the NFL.
O'Connor's high school coach told Van Haaren that Michigan, Michigan State and Syracuse have all called expressing interest.
“I talked to Coach [Al] Borges and he told me that it was down to two guys. He liked Michael O’Connor a lot, but they were set on taking one quarterback in this class,” O'Connor's prep coach told ESPN. “They’re off until Tuesday, so I sent him Michael’s film and they’re going to talk about it as a staff and get back to me. They were set on one quarterback, but they’re going to talk about it.”
I have noticed that new coaches often have early success. Tressel in his first years at OSU, Carr at UM, Hoke at UM, Meyer at Fla, Miles at LSU, Stoops at OK, Pellini at Neb. etc. But then things sort of slow down after that and the momentum subsides. Just wondering why it may be that a coach's best years are often their first years.
There's another NFL opening. This could have a lot of implications with PSU as well as other colleges with the NFL calling Stoops, Franklin, etc. It would be pretty funny to see Franklin leave Vandy to take over the Titans, even though that seems unlikely.
What say you? Munchak to PSU as HC, or even a coordinator?
I have a hundred or so Michigan Football and basketball VHS tapes that my dad made beginning in 1985 or so. I can no longer house them (according to my wife). Against her wishes, I would like to donate them to someone who may enjoy seeing "the good ol' days" once more. She would like them donated to the landfill just west of town. I feel like that would be a travesty.
I live in the Northville area and will give them to the first contact who offers to pick them up. Shoot me a note at yo_solutions @ hotmail . com if you are interested.
The list of tapes includes most Ohio State games, most ND games, most MSU games, most Bowl games, some of the basketball NC season, many of the non-conference football games between 85 and 2000. There is a mix of many random games as well including the hockey NC season.

Thanks for all the responses - several MGoBloggers contacted me and we have a winner who will have the tapes picked up next week. I appreciate the interest!
