|2 years 3 weeks ago||And the OSU investigation||
now has its version of Ed Martin locked and loaded and ready to sing. Throw a box of popcorn to the NCAA, too, as we enjoy thtis together.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||I love it how||
it is always an "incident."
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Sums up the next three years perfectly||
"Cutting Rodriguez loose right now sets the new guy up to look like 2006 Ron English after he replaced Jim Herrmann and inherited Woodley/Branch/Hall/Harris: a freaking genius. We'd find out during The Horror that he was not, but for a year the guy was untouchable. Hoke is going to get all the rope left over from the Rodriguez era and then some."
Anything that goes right will be Hoke's magic; anything wrong will be Coach Rod's fault. It will be a tie at the end of the Year 3, and I will then make my judgment.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||God, I love how MGoBlog||
went from a community for discussion and discourse to a place where negative opinions are criticized. I fully support Brian and his right to say what he feels.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||We just like our||
warm, fuzzy, cookie and milk, dictionary-reading program that we had under Lloyd. And that is what we will have now. For those that say we should fall in line and support the coach, I fully reserve the right to judge after year 3. The same time Coach Rod got.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Umm, the NCAA event is a hearing||
then they come back with penalties later in the fall. I am guessing nothing has been decided yet.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||2005-2009||
Part Coach Rod, part not Coach Rod. Mixed feelings, but this will have A LOT to do with our institution. We are under NCAA scrutiny right now, esp. Coach Rod.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Wow, just imagine ...||
... if we had made that 23-point field goal to send the Toldeo game to overtime. Can't miss those.
|3 years 1 week ago||In the long run, maybe this is best for DD||
Yes, he is now behind in finding a new school, but what if he had come here, struggled and then become academically ineligible of flunked out? Then, he might have been banished to the levels of D2 or NAIA. I give him all the credit in the world for busting his ass to try and get here, but if he turns out to be as good as everyone says he will, he will go somewhere else, become and All-American and go to the NFL. Surely, some high-profile DI school will have him.
And, in related news, a junior back-up tight end at Alabama just hurt his back and probably will not be able to play football again.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||OK, OK, I retract!||
Thanks to everyone for pointing out all of the great successes of most of the teams. Maybe it was just today, but it seems like when we lost this year or bad things happened, they were pretty gut-wrenching. Here's to 2010-11.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||I see your point on Zook||
But, Coach Rod can coach. Zook is a tool who has made his name as a great recruiter. Now that is a program I wouldn't want to be a fan of this year.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||This is spot-on!||
If any of you have seen this movie, this is the perfect scene. Great work! I laughed out loud at my desk!
|3 years 3 weeks ago||Uh, oh. Here comes the next wave||
"Aw crap, now the NCAA is probably going to call me!!" I can see the headlines: "Rodriguez jokes about serious NCAA investigation and sanctions"
|3 years 3 weeks ago||With all due respect, what do you want him to say?||
"Rich Rodriguez will be our coach for the next two years?" Then, heaven forbid, we go 3-9 or 4-8, or something similar, and I think everyone knows that is probably the end of the line anyway. Then, everyone can go back at DB and day, "but you said he had two more years." Brandon can only go one year at a time, because that is the nature of the business. If he fires Coach Rod after 2010, it will be for obvious reasons (losing record, no bowl, no improvement, etc.), and not because of this investigation and sanctions. That is what he is trying to make clear. That is why I laugh at all the columnists who say, "Well, Brandon said he would be the coach ONLY this fall. Uh, oh."
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Good eye!||
Wasn't there a discussion about this on the board a few weeks ago? I was surprised how big they were up close. Do you think this is a permanent location?
|3 years 9 weeks ago||I am coming around||
It is growing on me, but some of the first passes for new gear after the change was made were truly heinous. Some of the stuff at M-Dean still makes me cringe (too many fonts, futuristic-looking lettering, etc.), but I think they do have some nice gear. Looking forward to the new stuff for fall.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||Terry Foster||
WOW! How clueless can a columnist wannabe really be? That is priceless. How do these clowns get inches in that rag?
|3 years 15 weeks ago||I admit to being a little||
curious about the follow-up to the NCAA allegations, so I spied it for a few days after that. But, no more.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||"My name is||
______ and I used to read the Free Press"
|3 years 15 weeks ago||For a while||
I had all of the SE Michigan media tabbed: News, Freep, Annarbor.com, Mlive, etc. Just for easy looks.
|3 years 16 weeks ago||Just throwing out a response||
to a few people who wondered if RR would be fired for what happened today, especially with the word MAJOR being lobbed all over the place. No, I do not want him fired, but I don't think they could have done it when all these are is allegations at this point. Down the road, they may have to make a decision if the allegations stand and are booked as major violatons.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Well, not so sure||
legally. I had someone ask me, "If you were marooned on a deserted island and could have one person with you, who would it be." I can't remember my answer, but I remember telling my new colleagues, after I was hired, and they all said she could not ask such a question.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||I think ...||
... these types of questions (the vegetable one) are technically illegal. I think it must be related to the job in question.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Know the employer inside and out||
They could very well ask you, "so, what is our mission statement," or "what can you tell us about our sales last year." These are fair game and will show them how serious you are about their company.
Also, ask a lot of questions yourself. You are interviewing them, too.
|3 years 22 weeks ago||It's crazy||
The four players who have transferred or are "considering their options" are scrubs, while the impact players are all fit to come back. Amazing how that works!
|3 years 22 weeks ago||You had me until January 16||
Under no circumstances does Charlie Weis leave a ham sandwich.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Yeah, forgot||
about one fewer home game this year.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Depends on your location||
I think it is a minimum of $125 per ticket on the lowest area and goes up from there.
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Similar to the thread throughout this post||
Are you willing to pay the PSD for those seats, or just for the tickets?
|3 years 23 weeks ago||Math||
I don't have the tickets in front of me, but if I am not mistaken, the actual cost of tickets was about $900 last year when you added them up, so $1,000 is not far off. Not sure what it will be this year. It all depends on if you want to pay a little more (the holder's PSD) to have the tickets for a year or two. Is there a price for convenience and knowing you won't have to go looking for individual games? I know some peaople that wouldn't pay it, and some who would pay more.
