"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
I am relatively new to the site and some of the old jokes and how the site began interests me. For this reason i like looking over some of the old posts, While looking over the "User-Curated HOF", I opened this page http://mgoblog.com/content/mgoblogs-recruiting-philosophy. I would at this point like to add that anyone who follows recruiting should open this page and read over it because I agree with just about every single word of it. However, I found this funny, and figured I would show you guys the money quote during a boring ("DAMN YOU HOKE FOR WRAPPING UP HALF THE RECRUITING CLASS IN 1 WEEKEND") weekend.
"2. Do not disparage recruits except in extraordinary circumstances.
This goes quadruple for uncommitted recruits--a recent flagrant example on Rivals occurred when someone posted some idiocy about how he doubted Justin Boren's "love for Michigan" because he hadn't committed yet. Boren committed soon after and then expressed his love for Michigan. How do you feel now, anonymous internet moron?"
The anonymous internet moron is still exactly that, a moron. But as for the "love for Michigan", hindsight is always 20/20.
Any chance any of you have found some other funny things looking back from Mgoblog history. I think this could be a interesting thread if everyone remembered one or two funny posts looking back!
Suing the school, terms not disclosed. Whistle blower suits, to my knowledge, would be for one of two reasons.... One, he feels his job/reputation was damaged by something he tried to point out that was flawed and management did nothing about; or Two, I believe such suits entitle the whistleblower to some fraction of punitive damages as compensation for bringing it to light - maybe he'd get a portion of any settlement $$?
Also, probably not safe to go there yet, but... a sex crime related lawsuit with a Plaintiff named McQueary and his lawyer named Strokoff??? just saying.... if I were him, I would have had to think twice about hiring a lawyer with such an unfortunate name...
Not much more to say except the Cowboys picked up another CB and dropped our beloved Tloy.
I haven't seen this posted anywhere else. If I missed it, neg/sue me. I think it is the best story that has come out of the NFTC weekend, but I have a feeling many people haven't heard it. Sam Webb reported it on his recruiting roundup a couple days ago:
After the NFTC event ended on Saturday - after the Michigan crew tore apart the camp winning multiple honors - the Team 134 participants, decked in thier Michigan gear, went to midfield, in the heart of Columbus, and yelled "1, 2, 3, Beat OHIO!".
God, I love this recruiting class. So much swagger, so much unity, so much Michigan love.
Maybe not too informative, but entertaining debate between Buzz Bissinger, Malcolm Gladwell, Tim Green and Jason Whitlock on whether college football should be banned.
Video of the debate:
Of interest, Jason Whitlock refers to Brady Hoke in his closing statement at 1:43:30, and how Hoke is an example of a coach who develops people and prepares them for life.
