stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
and he couldn't be happier with this hire!
"... never forget that Ohio is still a four-letter word."
Find the fat joke...
It would be even funnier if he was fat ass too. Unfotunately, he's a gym rat who's built like he should work for Vince McMahon.
How's that chant go? Rock, gold bond medicated powder, Jayhawk?
is transferring! Schematic Advantage KU!
Srsly, what the hell?
an over/under on Mangino/Weis jokes. Now, I'm just going to take the over...no matter what it is. Carry on.
...confidence is the stain they can't wipe off...
Funny, Weiss' scale always takes the over too.
Well, to be fair, going 6-6 and beating Vanderbilt would be considered a great accomplishment for Kansas.
Turner Gill must be sitting there saying to himself, 'they fired me for... *him*'?
Lets be honest, Tuner Gill is half the coach Weis is, maybe less.
Watch charlie implode while blame everyone else if he fails.
Lucky enough to have my own JT wristband!!
If history repeats itself, I think we can expect the same things to happen again
If he couldn't win with 5 stars and ND's 9ish gimme's a year how the hell do they expect him to win at KU.
The new AD should be fired immediately.
Kansas is really looking forward to having a decisive tactical advantage.
Whatcha gonna do, little brother?
may have been better off taking a coaching job at a Bolivian University.
"I'm not a vegetarian b/c I love animals. I'm a vegetarian b/c I hate plants"
I'm going to be contrarian. Dude has Rings and NFL contacts. He'll be able to recruit because he can legitamely tell kids "I know what it takes you get you to the next level and I can help you get there."
I think he achieves middling success at KU. Yes he never beats the cream of the B12, but he'll do well enough, get them a decent bowl, and give them some alums in the NFL to brag out. Assuming the fans don't get greedy he'll bring them success.
Two things you're missing:
1. Weis had more talent at ND than any team he played outside of USC, and he turned in a number of lousy years despite it. Those people chose ND for ND, not Charlie Weis. His talent level will be far lower in Lawrence and his schedule will be comparable. I'd be surprised if he beats 7 wins more than once.
2. He, like Mangino, is a fat person. Very fat person. This is integral to the thread, yet you neglected to mention it.
To his credit, he did use cream in his response.
Reminding us that Charlie Weis drinks gallons of cream every day to work around the constraints of his lap band.
Weis and KU really deserve each other. KU got too big for their britches when they fired Mangino, and Weis is too big for almost any pair of britches in any department store.
How many college teams does Charlie have to drive into the ground before people stop hiring him?
"Good evening, and welcome to Michigan Stadium for this the one-hundred thirty-second season of Michigan football, and the thirty-ninth meeting between Michigan and Notre Dame." -Carl Grapentine, September 10, 2011
the answer to your question is, apparently: "At least three".
Taking it one week at a time
I decided to peruse this thread to make a fat joke. All of you guys were on top of that, and more apparently. So I guess I'll just call him FatWeiss and leave it at that.
Denied by UM multiple times, nonetheless lifelong M fan.
Kind of a slap in the face to Muschamp, "Thanks for the job, I'm out!"

Yeah, Muschamp might not be all that bummed though.
"Don't let the door hit you in the front butt on the way to KU"
Apparently, the KU AD thought the hire would "put Kansas Football on the map."
Well, it makes KU visible from space, but I don't think that's exactly what he was gunning for...
Homer? Who is Homer? My name is Wolverine Incognito.
Laugh all you want, but this means more FL kids goin to Ohio. Muschamp is totally gonna bounce back to Texas once Mack Brown realizes he's not a good coach anymore. Muschamp is one of those great coordinator-bad head coach types, IMO.
hired him is that they stuill have some of Mangino's clothes left...
"Forty-two Big Ten Championships!"
I was looking forward to seeing Charlie in the box during the Gator Bowl.
Without his decide schematic advantage to discuss, we'll only hear about the matchup of Urban Meyer's old team against his new team.
I hadnt heard any rumors about this. Maybe we should have checked barges on the Mississippi instead of FlightTracker
We should have been on the look out for his party barge in the Great Dune Sea on Tatooine
"It's the only place to get the inside story on Wolverine football, so blee bluhh tahh!" - Bo
It must be the intoxicating aroma of bacon around Charlie Weis that causes people to keep hiring him.
Mmmmm, bacon. /Homer
Michigan Resurgent? Michigan Resurgent!
The beatings will continue until the uniforms improve!
Do we have any openings on our schedule in the next three years? I'd love to beat Weis again, plus wins against BCS programs always look nice, and we'll have to schedule them fast before Weis gets fired.
on those BIG 12 eateries...
Hahahaha, you know it's an epic thread when there are 64 comments and 13 of them are already +5'd!
"It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach."
is a match made in heaven. Mediocrity, meet your new master of ceremonies!

A scheme guy. You need to be a teacher in college...if you want to succeed that is.
Come on, we all know he will succeed because of his decided schematic advantage.
"But in the tire fire that was last year's secondary he showed a little spark." - Brian Cook
I guess if Weis doesn't work out*, they can always just hire Ralph Friedgen to replace him.
*I know, he clearly doesn't work out, but that's not what I meant
Ann Arbor: now the permanent home of the Little Brown Jug
So they just needed another fat guy? There must be a restaurant chain that had a say in this.
Somewhere in the country there are a batch of relatively unknown young coordinators or coaches in non-BCS conferences currently waiting for their first chance at a BCS level program. These coaches will go on to fame and great success at whichever school is smart enough to hire them.
Kansas, it appears, is not one of those schools.
42 years ago, Michigan was.
Kansas tried that route with Turner Gill, but he apparently lacks the presence of his predecessor or his replacement.
