Mike Lantry, 1972
With all the craziness going on around here these days, I am having a hard time getting a pulse on what the greater MGoBlog community is feeling at this point.
I was wondering if one of you survey wizards out there would be interested in putting something together.
Some of the questions that are on my mind:
Who is your top coaching candidate right now?
With Harbaugh off the board, do you think Michigan should have fired RR?
When should RR have been fired?
Projected record for 2011?
Etc, etc, etc
I would be very interested to see where the majority of people stand at this point.
From the Urban Dictionary:
Sorry if this has been talked about somewhere else....Ross told Harbaugh to stay at Stanford.
"Harbaugh wanted to go to the NFL, but he wasn't exactly sure. He asked me, 'What should I do?' I recommended, 'Go back to Stanford and hitch yourself to the quarterback. You've got the best quarterback. You can win the national championship. The pros will be there.' "
Apparently the flight tracker for the Dominoes Jet is scheduled to Dallas. Dallas is where Miles' agent is located. FWIW. From Scottsdale to Dallas.
And Saint Brandon raised the Pimp Hand up on high, saying, 'O Lord, bless this thy Pimp Hand that with it thou mayest blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy.' And the Lord did grin, and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals and fruit bats and large chu…er, wait a second, I guess we needed the Hand Grenade in this instance instead of just the Hand.
While I have gone on record in more than a few threads defending the Great and Mighty Pimp Hand (GMPH), rationalizing that there must be a grand plan in place behind its mysterious doings, my faith is unfortunately wavering. My bad on this one, I own it. Maybe the GMPH actually had Harbaugh locked up and was victim to the most vicious head fake in the history of sports. Unfortunately GMPH, those instances are then typically captured on posters for all to stare at the poor bastard on the receiving end of the aforementioned fake. That is where you are right now.
Unfortunately, while I can very easily see how JH > RR, I struggle to see how (RR+DC+$) < BH or LM when it is this late in the year. Maybe I am just not good at math anymore or maybe the GMPH simply gambles like a mofo, I am not sure which. However, from the outside, this just looks like we jumped out of the airplane without a parachute, giving a big thumbs up and smile on the way down as we winnow down a surprisingly (I mean really surprising) short list of available candidates. Maybe Hoke is a great coach, but as EDSBS stated “then that replacement is Brady Hoke, Blink, Blink, Blink”. This does not sound like the results of anything with “Great and Mighty” in its name.
Well Pimp Hand, you have so far proved me wrong in regards to our coaching search/evaluation. I sincerely hope your luck returns and you prove me wrong again about where we really are in this search process. I would gladly admit my bad many times over in this instance. We need something to finally break our way so get your mojo back dammit.
