TO THE HOT TAKE CANNON
The world of coaching changes is never hospitable; here's a link to the all-around dissatisfaction with Minnesota's new hire:
You can displease most of the people all of the time.
Hadn't seen this game and I'm feeling better after watching it. It wasn't as close as the score indicated. More of a failure of Auburn to put the game away than anything else. Auburn piled up yardage on outside runs with their speed back. Get Smith and Roundtree outside and they will pick up chunks of yardage.
ESPN is announcing the Heisman finalists in the next few minutes.
I can haz Denard?

EDIT II: ...but this happened. So we've got that going for us.
ESPN's Adam Rittenberg has a new article up at espn.com on the coaching situation at Michigan.
There isn't much new news in the article. However, there were a handful of interesting comments. Among others,
Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon says he is very comfortable waiting until after the bowl season to evaluate his coaches. Rich Rodriguez is not.
On Monday, Rodriguez and his boss walked by each other at least twice without making eye contact. Brandon insisted he's not worried about Rodriguez feeling unsettled about his future with college football's winningest program.
Lastly, from RR on recruiting,
The Rodriguez-led coaching staff is trying to persuade high school seniors to commit, or stick with their commitment, to Michigan even though there's uncertainty about who will be coaching at the school next season. Rodriguez said his status at the school has created an obstacle in recruiting, but he has an answer for recruits and their parents when they ask a question he can't really answer. "I tell them we're planning on being here and being their coach," he said.
As I said, while not much is new, this seems to allude to some level of current discomfort or strain in the relationship between DB & RR.
Well folks, we have our first work of PR. Hollywood is releasing the guaranteed blockbuster film titled The Beaver. Mel Gibson has the lead role of GERG Robinson.
From the Daily Telegraph:
Mel Gibson has had to endure questions about his stability following a string of controversies. Now he is preparing to relaunch his career by playing a man who befriends a hand-puppet beaver after suffering a breakdown.
Coincidence? Conspiracy? GERG's hair finally landed him stardom?
Enjoy the trailer, I played it three times in a row in utter shock and disbelief of the great clips that will eventually make it to this board:
