If they are bringing theatre to the Big House, could they at least bring back the Royal Shakespeare Company instead?

Somewhere in the annals of mgoblog history, someone made this inane ramble and accidentally multi-posted it in a thread, hence the meme was born.

Look, if the #1 recruit goes there because his older brother is a linebacker and he decides he wants to be star of a rebuilding program, thats a heartwarming story. When 3 of the top 10 decide to go there, despite them not having a banner year last year indicating they had a shot at championships and despite not having some hot new coach to ride along with, it really seems shady. Also, its in Oxford, Mississippi.

As, so the stories say, was Yost.

No way Meyer ever leaves OSU for anything other than the NFL. Prestiege and recruiting platform are pretty similiar, he has more history with OSU than anywhere other than Cinci, and there is absolutely no way OSU won't match/beat on coaches salary + assistants salary. Alas, I think we are stuck with him until he retires.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||The argument isn't that great||
The argument isn't that great coaches don't come out of the MAC (Nick Saban, Brian Kelly, and Urban Meyer aren't shabby examples either), but that B1G should be a big enough deal they can poach those talents after they move up a step and prove they can they can build even better programs with the resources of a larger school. We got Hoke after he began to show he could transition his MAC success to even greater success at SDSU. While occassionally you pull and MSU and get a Saban right out of the MAC, B1G schools should be able to be more discerning.
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Kelly doesn't play the||
Kelly doesn't play the greyshirt recruiting machine game, and I am back to being annoyed that so many SEC teams automatically outrank other school with similar records. Even if ND loses, we really can't make the returning to glory joke anymore, so fuck it, go Irish.

You assume he wouldn't eat astroturf if the situation required it. I have greater faith in him...
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Which is garbage and why no||
Which is garbage and why no one should be allowed to play in the BCS if someone beat them in their divisions. If the SEC feels that their top teams get systematically hurt, nothing is stopping any of them from leaving and joining another top conference.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, I predict a rough start||
Yeah, I predict a rough start and an exciting end to the season. They will still be pretty raw and it will show, but they have the talent and will finally be mature enough we should see an exciting line by the time the get it together. On the other hand, if they remain hopelessly confused about blocking all season and rarely get any push, we have much bigger issues.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||Exactly. I'm pretty||
Exactly. I'm pretty satisfied with this season. Decent records with all of our losses coming against great teams. Broke the losing streaks against MSU and Iowa. Still playing with a rag-tag patchwork roster, and really made out pretty well with how bad our offensive line was this year. Should lead to a really fun bowl match-up, and hopefully will be able to start rolling out the first wave of deep talent next year.

I'd just go with Minnie at this point. Cal is likely to be a tire fire for a while yet, and Iowa is no place for a running back concerned about his health. Minnie at least is finally a program on the way up.

I, for one, welcome the opportunity to beat a zombie tressel team in the way which we were never able to when they were alive and kicking.

Yeah. Rutgers has no athletic history other than, say, inventing and playing the first game of college football ever.....

Also, Pitt ain't too shabby of a research university....
|26 weeks 5 days ago||At this point, I think||
At this point, I think Dantonio is comfortable enough in his program that he wouldn't jump for anybody other than the pros, Ohio or one of those few marquee programs a career college coach couldn't turn down (USC, Alabama, Texas)
|26 weeks 6 days ago||While I think both schools||
While I think both schools athletics and academics would be solid, if not stellar, contributions, and am all for adding two more flagship public schools for their respective states, I'm really all in for this move as it sends a fuck you to ND.

Can you front-page the video of Denard's first snap so I can get nostalgic and the room can get all dusty?

Denard kept his helmet on the whole second half. What a champ.

|30 weeks 3 days ago||What scares me is that this||
What scares me is if this no-audible thing is a Borges thing and not a Borges coaching Denard thing. I understand that every qb has a different skill-set, but without the ability to check into counters our offense is always going to be glacially tempo-ed, inflexible and likely pretty eash for talented and adaptive defenses to throttle.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||I'd like him to have one or||
I'd like him to have one or two big returns to sit in his portfolio for the draft and possibly a catch or two at slot. I don't think they would show materially different skills, but I could see that direct demonstration helping some on the fence drafting staff at the next level.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||No, I will hazzard there is||
No, I will hazzard there is zero chance Denard was asked to block. That said, Denard for better or worse has not shied away from physical play when he doesn't have the ball...

If we solidly beat Nebrasky and NW, I'll believe it.

I think most people who were there will tell you it felt right. 900th win + the first time any of the (non-5th+ year) students there ever saw a win against State after a tight game with a victory in the last few seconds. I sure as hell would have rushed if I was in the student section.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||Exactly. And we are only 6-4||
Exactly. And we are only 6-4 in the last decade.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||In the recent past, it's||
In the recent past, it's pretty clearly a rivalry. Once we got another decade down with something like an 8-2 record against them, we can go back to confident assurance it isn't.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||To be fair, those could also||
To be fair, those could also be caused by an overwhelming amount of pain. I don't see Meyer as a play through a concussion type of coach, but I guess we'll see.
|30 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah, Miller has always||
Yeah, Miller has always seemed like a solid guy and a fearsome talent. You never want anyone to get hurt, but especially not the guys who seem to appreciate the opportunities they've got.
