further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
Arizona Wildcats (-4) take on Arizona State. Game starts shortly. Open thread goes here.
Also, Fuck the Eagles.
For those who asked about how many Academic All-Big Ten recipients the football program has had over the years, follow the link below. Over the last 10 years, we've had between 7-12 per year, with a high of 16 in 2005:
Also, a list of Academic All-Americans (hail Space Emperor!):
Sigh, yeah that's real. Great precedent set by the NCAA.
Who on our roster will remain in the secondary next season. Here is a list of our secondary from the roster at http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/mich-m-footbl-mtt.html. I have omitted the walk-on types.
I know some of these guys are already linebackers, but other than Kovacs and Vinopal, who are going to be the players contending for spots at the more traditional free/deep safety positions.
I think there is a chance that either JT Floyd or Woolfolk displaces Vinopal from the starting rotation, and the one who doesn't replace Vinopal ends up as the other starting corner.

Denver Post is reporting that CU will hire Jon Embree as its next head coach. I guess they wanted to get someone in there from the CU "family." Eric "Sleeping With" Bienemy will be OC.
So I have no idea what happens in an evaluation meeting between AD's and their football coaches, but do you think RR gets a chance to plead his case?
Does he get an hour to put up graphs of Freshmen starters, FEI indexs, returning starters, WVU highlights,academic progress, recruiting etc.. and sell it to Brandon while he is sitting at the table?
I thought of this going thru the excellent thread on the state of Stanford's defense. The last few days have been filled with a lot of garbage, but I have been impressed with the number of charts and graphs and arguments people have laid out. It got me to wonder if Brandon actually looks at stuff like that?
On one hand you would think he is the man that has to make this decision, he should know every single thing about the program and have looked at it from every different way and he has had his staff put together the same type of graphs and records for him to look at.
On the other hand I can't picture Brandon looking it over and saying "boy the FEI index shows us as the #1 offense RR is back". I'm picturing him making a decision on more of an overview and feel.
Curious how geeky you think Brandon gets on this stuff. What do you think?
