Wait, what if 20 HCs want to be keynote speakers? What then? Can't there only be one keynote? I'm picturing 15 Power 5 conference coaches pushing each other aside to get to the podium.

It's Friday morning, and what we all need to step back and ask ourselves is, who gives a flying f**k what Jim Rome thinks of ANYTHING?
|5 days 7 hours ago||This could be a game changer||
The basic concept of this service itself is not at all new - plenty of companies (U.S. Cellular, Ting, Republic, Straight Talk, Virgin Mobile, etc) sell service that runs on one of the existing "Big 4" networks, but the ability of Google's service to use two carriers' networks (Sprint and T-Mobile, based on signal strength) as well as Wi-Fi, and the fact that you only pay for the data you use (I read that American cell phone users on average "walk away" from $28 worth of data per month) make this very intriguing, and perhaps will pressure all carriers to lower data prices. It's probably not intriguing enough for me to walk away from my grandfathered unlimited plan on Verizon, especially as this service will work only with one phone at the outset (the massive Nexus 6), but I'll be keeping a close eye on this should it expand to other phones (likely only future models as not many phones support 4G on both T-Mobile and Sprint).

Boone may be a whiny Buckeye but he plays in a league full of millionaire primadonnas who don't want to work too hard. This is why JH makes a better college coach - he is coaching kids who will listen to him, and by the time they are tired of his hard driving ways they're graduating.

Hypeslam season is back. "Hey we can sell a double IPA for twice the usual price if we create artificial scarcity. We won't even have to market it!" Whoever came up with this in the Bell's marketing office should get a promotion.

Apples to oranges when you give a staff four weeks to finish off a class. Also, Mora will run back to the NFL whenever the right job comes calling, it's just a matter of time. UCLA plays in a beautiful stadium but it's a good hour+ away from campus. Unless they've recently upgraded, my understanding is their facilities are poor. And crosstown rival USC is again ascendant. If all the upside of UCLA you mention was all recruits cared about, they'd of had top recruiting classes for the last 30 years, which has not been the case. Mora will continue to do well as long as he's there but this is hardly a time to cry about the sky falling.

Hoke has to seek football-related employment to keep collecting that dough. Now that could be as a talking head on ESPNU, so low bar. But he can't just sit on the beach.

It's a David Mamet play about a failing real estate office. It was made into a fantastic movie and there's an iconic scene with Alec Baldwin playing the BSD from the "main office" trying to motivate the salesmen:

It's about time to break the curse and I can't think of a better combo than the Jims. Go Blue!

Why are you doing this guy's trolling for him by re-posting this crap? It's not like Pete Thamel or Dan Wetzel called out Michigan fans. National Football Post is worse than Bleacher Report, if that's even possible.

Great news, because the 49ers only reason for firing Harbaugh is if they have worked something out with Hackett and Michigan and/or Harbaugh has already committed in some form to Michigan. You have to assume that all actors are going to do what's best for them. As the 49ers gain nothing by firing JH and letting him take his pick of NFL jobs without the 49ers getting anything in return, the only reason for them to fire him is if they know that he is definitely not taking another NFL job.

Kawakami has essentially been trolling Michigan fans for the last month, and in return has been trolled by Michigan fans. He is a hack.

Meh, did they also pass a bill banning the Easter Bunny from driving on Wednesdays? Because both were about as likely to happen.
P.S., Easter Bunny bill would be unconstitutional as a bill of attainder

I just can't believe Pelini didn't wait to see if he could get the Pitt gig before he signed up with YSU. Perhaps his agent made contact and they weren't interested (I have to believe that the Nebraska AD would tell everyone who's listening to steer clear of the guy) but still it would have been a great fit, as its a stone's throw from Youngstown and Pelini's preferred recruiting region.

Yeah, it sucks to lose your job around the holidays, but it sounds like he was given time to find a new position (reading further down the thread) and/or I would assume if no new position, he has been given a nice severance pacakge. He'll be ok.

He is guilty, IMO. I think he killed her in the heat of passion and then turned to the shadiest guy he knew (Jay) to help him get rid of the body. No other reasonable explanation exists, IMO. Nobody else had motive, except possibly Hai's new boyfriend, but he appears to have been ruled out early (or the police screwed up, but I doubt that -- they absolutely must have looked at him as a suspect but ruled him out. The cops in this case don't seem like bufoons and only bufoon cops wouldn't have checked that guy out). There are simply too many unexplainanble issues for Adnan for me to conclude he's innocent. Whether it was proved beyond a reasonable doubt, well, we weren't at the trial so hard to know.

Maybe it's because they're telling me what I want to hear, but I trust the Rivals guys a lot more on the coaching search. Webb is great for recruiting info but Borton and Balas have been realistic but optimistic on JH all month. They are quick to dispel the (apparent) misinformation out there and have been posting almost daily updates. Sure, they don't really know any more than their sources tell them. I guess the proof will be in the hire. Last go 'round, Balas was very optimistic on Harbaugh until he suddenly wasnt. Who knows.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||I largely agree with you but||
I largely agree with you but Jim can have it both ways - and he knows it - he can come and be the savior for his alma mater for 5 years, get the program humming again, and go back to the NFL at age 55 or 56 (Pete Carroll is 63 btw) with plenty of time to compete for a ring. Not to mention, he could sit back and coach Michigan and make the move back when the right NFL gig opens up. His current choices - Jets or Raiders (though with many more likely to come after the season wraps up)-- are less than ideal for a guy who wants to win a Super Bowl. Also, maybe he's realizing that his style is just better suited to college. Who knows.

I want to downvote your post because the information makes me sad, but that wouldn't be fair to you. Let's hope Sam is off on this one.
