Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
Quote today from our athletic director at the Detroit Econ. Club. This was gleaned from the paper that shall not be named. You can visit if you like. There are other quotes but this one is the best. It concerns how many wins RR needs to stay on.
“This crap about what’s the record got to be? It reduces those decisions to something so simplistic, it’s almost insulting. When you’re the director of athletics, and you’re looking at any program, not just football, any of our 27 sports, you have to look at the coach. You look at how we’re recruiting, who we’re recruiting, the information how we’re doing academically, get information about how we’re behaving ourselves in terms of our behavior and community service. You get a variety of inputs to measure the health of that program and the leadership that program is receiving and, based on a variety of inputs, you make decisions. That’s what I do and anybody in my job does. But it isn’t this, ‘If you’re 7-5 … .’ That’s nonsense.”
per TOB's RT on Twitter:
I love everything about the guy. This is a simple question. Where has he been? When they 1st came in he seemed to be everywhere, but I haven't heard anything from him since the Freep allegations last fall other than his workouts with Brock. I can see this guy just seething about all this crap that people say about this team considering the standard he holds himself to. I wonder if RR has put him on a media blackout so no one gets killed. I need a countdown to kickoff with Mike.
PS I couldn't find the Barwis pregame speech on youtube if anyone has it please post I need it for my pregame
Former 2010 commit Antonio Kinard is still planning on coming to UM after his post grad year at Hargrave Military Academy.
I assume there this is something that is provided via insurance through the university. Just reading how Stonum couldn't see deep balls, has an astigmatism (!). Thanks for the note three years later. RoundTree spent a year needing glasses before he finally got them. This seems like one of those basic things we should test with all of our players when they show up as freshmen. Is there a rule against doing something like this?
Typically the Sports Science videos are pretty cool, but not worthy of an MGoBlog post, in my opinion. This one is different. I think this is absolutely sweet, and it showcases a little bit of Larry Fitzgerald's raw skill.
P.S. I tried to embed the video, but wasn't able. I clicked the "Share" button, then copy/pasted the code from the "Embed" window, but when I previewed it here, it only showed the text. Any ideas?
Edit: Here's the embed. Thanks Dudeness!
