I'll still probably listen, because it's part of my Thursday routine, but it's a bummer no BCook on the show today.

It is not bad, but I wish The leak didn't happen (in re OP).

I hope this is wrong, because I'm high on Herman and think he's going to be a good HC, and want him to be available if we miss on JH.

The university seal- nice, nice touch. I really like that idea. Please do post those pics when you get it finished.

That's so damn cool. Embedded styrene in your big-ass back yard ice rink. Talk about being king of the castle. Well done, man. Well done.

I grew up in a rural area with a big back yard (2 acres total). So I feel qualified in saying that you have done great things with your space, my friend. WOW. Way to go all out on the size!!! That is so awesome.

In before server crash! In all seriousness, this is step 2 of a 3 part process that began with Brandon's dismissal. We have to hope the third step- acquiring a new coach- goes well. Cautiously optimistic. Also, come on Lloyd: patch it up with Miles. Go Blue

Brodie- Glad you're still around. Even if you're argumentative- whatever. It adds a little spice. Mostly, though, it's because there aren't a lot of oldtimers from the Haloscan days left- people who remember the RR search. Which was kind of awesome.

I read that in Stringer Bell's "keep this on the low" voice in my head. Thank you for that. Like he turned the copier on first, then said what he had to say.

Man, I wish this weren't the case, but reading your comment I was thinking "yep, pretty much" to myself the whole time. It seems like our feelings (mine and yours) and the evolution/devolution of our emotional attachment over the past few years are in lockstep. Also of note, I didn't admit to myself just how negative an impact Michigan football had on me during the RR years. (I, like you, was an unabashed supporter and was, and still am, ashamed by the way he was treated by certain sections of our fan and alumni bases).
I realize that's completely absurd- to let something like your alma mater's football team have such an impact on your general mood- but, well, it happened, and my emotional withdrawal from allowing wins and losses to impact me so severely was and is a defense mechanism. As an adult, being depressed all the damn time about a football program (which you don't and never did suit up for) is an untenable situation and is ridiculous when you think about it rationally. So now, I don't get as upset, because I've built up these layers of numbness to the whole situation, which is incredibly sad to me.This is why I don't begrudge Brian (as some do around here) when he expresses similar sentiments; I not only understand them, I share them with respect to this program and how much one chooses to let the program's fates affect one's happiness.

You shut your dirty mouth. Hubba Bubba soda is delicious. Well, at least it was when I last tried it 20 years ago or so. "An entire soda of bubblegum flavor?!? Sign me up!"

Thanks Mr. Smith
Thanks, Mr. Smith, not only for your comments today (and your great attitude), but for everything you did for Michigan. My favorite group of players over the last 10 years was the Florida crew that Rich Rodriguez brought in: You, Tay Odoms, Denard, Gallon, et al. The toughness, the drive, the effort you guys displayed every play, and the attitudes you all presented to the fans and the community were wonderful and serve as an example for younger players. Just the way all of you guys blocked, for example (except Denard) demonstrates that great attitude. Blocking and effort come from mental toughness and desire, and you guys had-- and I'm sure still have-- that in spades. Best of luck to you and the whole crew. I don't think I'm alone when I say I'll be rooting for you the rest of your lives.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Could be Strategic||
The story cites a single source. This could be floated either by Phillips' agent, or by U of M so they get the narrative out there about not going after simply people with Michigan ties. Either side would benefit from leaking such information.
|7 weeks 7 hours ago||WOW||
How about the fact that Mattison makes close to a million? Like 850-900k. And we wouldn't pony up less than $300k? My God.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||This, if true, is the most||
This, if true, is the most embarrassing thing to me to happen to Michigan football in years. Yes, worse than what happened with Shane Morris. This is absolutely classless if true.

This is a terrible comment. Stop trying to explain it to me in person, weirdo.

Yes. It was either Dantonio or an MSU player that first used the phrase.

Saw their 20th anniversary show at Alpine Valley (the final night- three encores). It was my first PJ concert despite being a fan since 1992. It. Was. Awesome.

How much does DB pay you to spew this stuff? Or are you related to him in some way? The revenues DB has raised have been along the same trend the AD was headed in- see Brian's post yesterday. John U. Bacon's a relatively reliable source. Why would he make up all of this stuff- about the other coaches laughing in disbelief, about Harbaugh, about what his sources tell him- just to troll DB? Or, to put it differently, there's no evidence that I've ever seen that Bacon has an agenda against DB and puts out false information about DB. Quite the contrary.
So, it seems that because Beilein allegedly likes DB....then....DB shouldn't lose the job he is screwing up royally? I mean, wouldn't any competent AD candidate do the things from a fundraising standpoint that DB does? I guess I just don't get the myopic view of Brandon you seem to espouse with incredible vigor.

Why are people negging the crap out of the OP? He asks a valid question, and the comments indicating that the OP is on to something/it's a consideration in response aren't getting negged to oblivion. Perhaps I'm missing something(?). As of this writing, it's -13 to +2 in voting. Doesn't make a lot of sense, to say the least. The OP poses an interesting and valid question and one which is ripe for discussion in light of what happened with RR at a minimum.
