this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
CC: Coaching Conference in Dallas
I take much pride in being the inventor of the CC tag. But, as much as it pains me to say it, CC is no longer necessary. What else are we talking about on 6th day that DB held the world hostage?
Otherwise, great post and thanks for the info.
and I am thankful that you reminded us that you invented the term "CC" so that we can all bask in your wisdom and glory, and bombard you with +1's.
If this is the 6th day that DB has held the world hostage, doesn't that mean that he'll be resting tomorrow? Even DB needs a rest after doing (what appears to be) nothing.
I'm sure he's just been lounging around butt naked eating bon bons, watching Oprah and shit.
is highly redundant.
CC: CC in DFW
I vote for a week of abbreviated post titles.
What the fuck are we going to do now?
What is: "What the fuck are we going to do now," Alex...
EDIT: Beaten to the punch. However, I'm afraid you did not give your answer in the form of a question.
EDIT II: New mystery tag: "TGDPHCITM"
DB should probably talk to some of those guys.
There is plenty of time between now and September 1. Hell, he waited this long.
Per emails sent out to MSC and DB as well as many highly influential alums from Rich Rogel, the plane in Baton Rouge is owned by him and has been leased for the past month and will continue to be leased for another two.
He had no understanding of why his plane was in Baton Rouge, and has apologized for this mixup with the higher ups.
No online source, as I was told this in a casual conversation I had with an alum who is in Ann Arbor for speaking obligations. FWIW, he also expects a coach announced Wednesday afternoon but that seemed more speculation than the plane info.
Regardless, we can discontinue our pursuit of that planes travel arrangements if we hadn't already. Wasn't sure where else to put this as I have no ability to post a topic.
This is way too logical and informed. Your comment has no place in a coaching search!
Not track random planes that are like not - but, hey, you never know - connected to anything to do with DB? What would you have us do all day? Work?
it's being used for medical transports
yay, the mgopoint posting requirement worked for once!
The man didn't say anything about transports, but I did read that on here.
Interesting a medical transport plane would just sit for days, though.
.....but you are taking all the fun out of my interminable CC anxiety! Where's Gruden? Anyone see Gruden? John, John....yo John...
"This man has information! He's helping everyone!"
And given our UM confirmed info that Brandon and Miles will be meeting on Tuesday, maybe we can all focus on other, less important things like work and family until Wednesday morning, and then let all the usual craziness continue?
And in more important news?
And of course, a kitten:
That's just what they want us to think!
As many of you know, Jon Gruden is calling the National Championship game tonight for ESPN Radio - alongside Ann Arbor resident Mike Tirico FWIW (nothing). Likewise, Gruden's name has been mentioned by relatively trustworthy sources - according to Brian - for the job...
If Gruden was actually interested in this job, and DB was interested in announcing that he was our new coach, there is no way that a decision would come before the NC game because ESPN would never let an active coach call a game - HUGE conflict of interest (not that that's stopped them before).
I can think of no reasons why they would be delaying a decision on any other coaches if the decision has been made. But no news is good news for the contingency hoping Gruden takes his talents to A2.
That will make the 3rd bowl we've had to wait through to find out that whatever coach is involved in said bowl game, will not be coaching at Michigan.
because ESPN would never let an active coach call a game - HUGE conflict of interest
Further proof of the need for a sarcasm font. The qualification "(not that that's stopped them before)" would be unnecessary.
On the sidebar of what they will be talking about next, they had "Miles to meet with Michigan". After a few minutes of waiting to hear what they had to say, it came down to the next topic on the list and all of a sudden it was gone. Maybe they felt they didn't have enough confirmation in order to discuss and had to pull. The suspense continues..
I noticed that too. WTF?
Seen that too, It's all going into the DB/CIA/JFK conspiracy theory. Also breaking: M. Rosenberg likes to lick toilet seats in Tijuana...I got an un-named source man.
He likes those tequila sharts
11:30 and the M to talk to LM is on the board again, maybe they'll play it this time.
EDIT: 1139est SC just broke the they heard from the Detroit News that LM to talk to UM, so sources talking to sources, please keep Herbbie away this time.
