chance of bowl: 13.6%
Seems to be a super slow day for new information on the board today, so I thought I'd throw this out there: an interesting article on head football coach searches and hiring, looking at the PAC 12 and focusing mostly on Washington State AD Bill Moos and his hire of Mike Leach.
Here's an excerpt from the article, quoting Moos:
"There's the Charlie Weis deal," he says of Kansas' hire. "He failed miserably at Notre Dame, but, 'By God, he was at Notre Dame.' Down at Ole Miss, they have to have 15 people on a search committee. By the time they get through the introductions on the search committee, all the good coaches are hired.
"I don't need 15 people sitting at the table. Where are the other 14 when I get evaluated on (the performance of) my football coach?"
At the end of the article, there's a list of head football coach salaries in the PAC. Colorado's coach is listed at $725,000!
In case you missed the tweet this morning, I wrote a rant on mgoangst. My boredom will probably lead to more spring game every snap videos shortly.
Title says it all. This story brings on my allergies everytime.
ESPN Goal Line is on today going to various spring games around the country.
As someone whose family has a long, well-documented history in the US military, I am making a request for anyone who sees this. For the game on against the falcons on 9/8, do not boo the air force team or their fight song when they enter.
Keep in mind: these guys aren't playing football to be in the NFL someday. They're playing football because they love it, and are eventually going to serve our country.
I know this is kind of a random thing in the offseason but I was just thinking about this today because I was watching a replay of ND vs Air Force from this past season the other night. And those pricks were booing the air force team as they entered!
To me, that's really disrespectful. I'm not too sure how things went down the last time Michigan hosted a service academy (1981 vs Navy), but let's show respect for them.
Yes, of course I want Michigan to blow them out of the stadium and win the game.
