And not really worried about the changes on defense either other than the coaching shakeup. Hoke did say he would still work with the DL, though. Just not as much.

I think Mallory will most likely help Manning with the CBs, but this is a move to help lessen his work load.

And who exactly do you want fired over this? Bill Martin says it never came up. So if he didn't know, Dave Brandon probably didn't know, and Hoke sure as hell didn't know. What do you want Hoke to do? Go long distance over Martin and RichRod's head and kick Gibbons off while he's the head coach at San Diego State? By the time Hoke was hired this whole thing was OVER. It didn't come back up until November 2013, and Gibbons did not even meet with the university body until December.

Hoke gave a vague answer on Gibbons status. Pretty much all coaches do regardless of the situation. If people think Hoke is going to say "Gibbons was expelled for a sexual assault he was accused of in 2009", you're delusional. He was in Florida with family when he got the letter. So it can be labeled as a family issue since he is dealing with it with his family.
Dantonio gave a vague "violation of team rules" or something like that on Bullough, and we still have no idea what he did to essentially get kicked off the team by missing the Rose Bowl. In fact recently Dantonio said about Bullough playing in the East/West Senior Bowl that he has talked to him numerous times since, says he is a Spartan forever, and hopes that he attends their MSU banquet.

Michigan State's 2013 class, to put it bluntly, sucked. They don't have a whole lot left after Harris leaves. Valentine could develop, but man were Spraty fans cursing his name tonight. Costello hasn't exactly lit the world on fire as a starter, either.

His only win against a ranked opponent came against injury ravaged Georgia, and he barely won that.
His SEC wins:
Combined record: 22-39 (6-34 SEC record)
Combined record: 19-30 (10-22 SEC play)
Color me unimpressed even if it was at Vandy. He's supposed to be the next hottest thing since sliced bread, but all he did was beat up on bad/injury plaqued teams, and normally got blown out by the good ones.

Mora just signed a long extension at UCLA. Malzahn just signed a long extension at Auburn. Saban just signed a long extension at Alabama.
Jim Harbaugh surprisingly has dodged the question at pressers when he's asked. He never just bluntly says "I'm staying with the 49ers, not even talking to Texs".

Yeah, Nintendo of America bought them in the 90s to prevent the team from moving out of Seattle. Their president of baseball operations, Howard Lincoln, was one of Nintendo's main lawyers in the 70s and 80s, and helped counter sue Universal Studios when they tried getting Donkey Kong off of the market. Lincoln plowed through Universal's bullshit, won the case, and got them to pay money to Nintendo.
Anyways, NoA let then-GM Bll Bavasi spend money. Unfortunately Bill Bavasi was possibly the worst GM in the history of GMs, and paid never was players a lot of money en route to the Mariners being the first team ever to lose 100 games while having a 100 million dollar payroll.
Since that debacle and Bavasi getting fired, the Mariners have been lowering payroll every year until all of Bavasi's horrible contracts have come off the books. Now before Cano's signing and arbitration, the Mariners have 33.25 million on their payroll. So they have A LOT of money to spend, and they made the biggest splash they possibly could, and have a lot of money left over to get some more players.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed about the second half||
Agreed about the second half of the contract, but Cano is a culture changer for the franchise. He can show other top tier FAs that you can go to Seattle.

Tim Lincecum after two straight bad years is getting paid 18 mil.
Carl Crawford is getting paid 20 mil.
Prince Fielder is getting paid just as much as Cano.
I don't think 25 mil annually in baseball is gonig to be as big of a deal in 5 years than it is now, or five years ago.

I'm also sure the PS4 will get some sort of Last of Us sequel as well.

1. This shouldn't surprise anyone. Al Borges was not making an excuse when he said this was the first year they werei nstalling the offense they wanted to run. A lot of the calls he made were the right calls. Guys were open down field. Gardner missed them. Probably because he had a guy in his face in 2 seconds.
2. Hoke and Brandon haven't done their evaluations of the program yet. That won't happen until after the bowl game. This isn't set in stone.

|14 weeks 1 day ago||The OL has to be better||
The OL has to be better overall, which I think it will. Magnuson has shown glimpses of being very good, and he'll move to OT next year. Glassgow may move over back to LG if Kugler shows he can call protections well enough. He had decent size coming in as a freshman (6-5/ 287) so I am sure he will be at or pretty close to starting size next year with an offseason of weight lifting. He's already as big as Miller, and has had two fewer years in the program.
My prediction for the starting OL next year would be:
Young again, yes. But this is what happens when you have 2 OL in 2010 and 2011.

Arizona's OL currently consists of 2 RS Juniors at the tackle positions, a Junior at Center, a Sophomore at LG and a Senior at RG.
That is a lot better than having 2 RS Seniors at the tackle positions, a RS Sophomore walk on at Center and a true Freshman and RS Freshman at the guard positions.
They have one underclassman on the OL. We have three. Arizona's entire offense has four underclassmen starting. Three of them are WRs. As we see from their typical stat sheet, they don't pass much.

I agree. Who knows what may have happened if Casteel came with him. I wanted Rod to stay for another year, but it iddn't happen. Time to move on. Hoke won 12 B1G games in two years and beat all three of the big rivals.
Now he has a bit of a gap in depth. 12 scolarship seniors this year and 13 next year. We currently have 39 true and RS Freshmen. I can't express enough how much people need to chill the fuck out about this.
|15 weeks 2 days ago||A lot of these things you say||
A lot of these things you say at the end can equate to the current Michigan team. 3/5 OL will return more experienced. 4/5* Sophomore QB will be ready if Gardner pulls some more Gardner things.
Almost the entire defense comes back (I think only players that played plenty that are gone are QWash, Gordon, Avery, Cam and Black). Everyone else (JMFR, Clark, Countess, Taylor, Wilson, Wormley, Mario, Beyer, Morgan, Ross) and guys liek Stribling will be a yearwiser, stronger from the offseason, and be able to finished those plays like against Penn State.
Our experienced depth is crap this year. However, we only lose 12 guys to eligibility.
