"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
I know most of you don't like rumor-mongering. And I know what most of you think of the bleacher report but I came across this and thought is was at least worth sharing. It is mostly about Les Miles and the plane in Baton Rouge. But makes mention that Dan Mullen was reported in Baton Rouge Friday.
Note: TAKE IT FWIW. THIS COULD BE NOTHING OR SOMETHING. ALSO UNSURE OF CONFIRMATION.
Does anyone think that DB has anyone in the AD office read MGoBlog to get an idea of the pulse of the fan base?
This fan environment is pretty unique from other schools in terms of the ability for all of us to take to the internets and express our opinion en masse. He probably doesn't care what we all think, but shouldn't he? I know we can be pretty irrational with some of our comments, but IMHO he's a business man first and foremost and don't major corporations (like Dominoes) hold demographic testing before rolling out a new product? I would think the approval of the fan base has to be some type of mitigating factor (probably a small percentage, but still) especially since the last coach's major roadblock was fan approval.
I'm a little faklempt.
I am not saying he will be hired or anything like that but I just want to know why everyone is so set against Miles coming here if he was to be hired. I mean people act like he is a terrible coack. So he likes to eat a couple blades of grass now and then, So maybe he has a couple boneheaded clock management issues during games. I can take losing a game or two by bad clock management if we are playing in BCS bowls year after year like LSU does, not to mention making it there from a conference liek the SEC. I know he's a little cooky bt he can coach. LSU shredded Texas A&M last night. Anyways I was just wondering what the problem people have with him.
That is all.
I had heard about Frost on Michigan's end last night, but according to this guy, he didn't run this by Auburn, and they will not be accepting him. Whoops.....if true.
Someone said if you try and apply you get a message saying job has already been filled. I am unable to get the link to work on my work computer. Can anyone confirm this?
I was thinking it would be cool to be able to keep everyone in limbo until the UOS basketball game next week.. and then trot out the coach before the game and get the crowd all pumped up...tell them how he'll destroy UOS.
But that would only work with Harbaugh.. wouldn't it?.. would there be enough people who obsess over this enough to actually know who the next guy is and be able to pull that off?... I mean I guess OSU did it with SweaterVest.
Any other cool ways to do it other than the traditional press conference?
