Solid pick up. His name was mentioned (maybe not very seriously) as one of the possible candidates for the CMU head coaching job.

Seriously. Pretty much every response to a question about officiating has been “pssh, we sucked, what does it matter." well yeah, we weren't good, but that doesn't mean calls didn't make a difference.

You know what's weird? I know that they're synonymous, but I've never thought about that phrase being redundant before. I'm going to stick to either exact or same from now on.

How much of Oregon's current success is attributable to him, and how much is Helfrich?
I'm a bit worried about hiring an OC that's under an offensive head coach, just as I'd be a little worried about a DC under a defensive head coach (Narduzzi).
Not saying that these guys aren't the reason for the success of their units, but we better be sure that they are before making them a head coach.

I think you misunderstood me then, because I realize that it's not a real monopoly. My point is, people aren't going to switch from Michigan to another team.
They have a monopoly on Michigan fans. Maybe it is a poor comparison, but I really believe that they feel they can do certain things because the fans can either deal with it, or not get Michigan football.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Same for me, actually. I'm not actively||
Same for me, actually. I'm not actively "boycotting" the program, but I also am choosing to not spend my money on it. I had a rare opportunity to come up for a game this year and I didn't. Mainly because I didn't have much desire to pay for what we have right now.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||UM football is basically a monopoly, and it's||
UM football is basically a monopoly, and it's being run like one. Fans aren't going to go spend their money at MSU or Notre Dame, they only want Michigan.
So why not raise prices and ruin the game day experience for some extra bucks...it's not like the fans can go anywhere else. Unless fans stop spending money and supporting the program, it will only continue. Yes, it's a bummer for players, but that seems to be the only way to get some type of message across.

I don't really see this as running a coach out. Rich Rod, yes, that was a struggle for him from day one. Hoke, for the most part has had a ton of support and probably would have been here next year if this season wasn't an absolute disaster. But that's on him.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||That's kind of how I feel about Hoke. Just because||
That's kind of how I feel about Hoke. Just because someone works hard and is a good person doesn't mean that they're untouchable.
I wish it would have worked out differently for Devin, but at some point you might need to try something else.

I suck at using mobile devices

How does it work when a player is hurt like this in HS? Does the school pay for, or help pay for the surgery/rehab? If not, that's a huge financial burden for these families to have to deal with.

I remember the depths of that coaching search when Jim Grobe was starting to look appealing. Those were some dark days.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||5 years and 2 weeks over||
5 years and 2 weeks over here! I don't post much, but I'm on the site every single day and I don't know what I would do at work without it!

It's about time! I remember thinking that it was a great idea. Turns out, I was right!

What happens if another coach had that put into his contract? Never ending dollar raises?
|5 years 3 weeks ago||So am I right in assuming||
So am I right in assuming that most people want the tradition of the #1 jersey to die? Or are most of you just upset with the way it is being handled as of late? I personally love it, and it never seemed to be a problem as far as promoting one player over any other before. I remember when Manningham was blowing up and everybody was calling for him to get the jersey.
Is the change in opinion based off of the new coaching staff and their perceived emphasis on team over player? People keep talking about Bo and the whole "team" approach, but didn't he start the helmet stickers that Carr thought were too individualistic?

Am I the only person that thinks that some variation of this should be the US Soccer logo? It would be ten times better than the lame shield we have now.

Great to end the game with a bang and put the other guys away.

Eric Bledsoe much he needed a transfusion?

As a yooper, when I'm calling something "up north", I'm usually referring to Houghton.

I'm with you. I'd sneak up after that dude wanted to order with Denise and I would comfort Ms. Redhead.

Although I agree with your post, I kind of upvoted you for your signature. I say "Au revoir, Shoshanna!" way too often in daily activities.

I'm glad I'm not the only person that eats middle fingers. I get kind of sick from them too.

I honestly thought that they were being invited to the FIBA championships based on the title of the thread. I thought it sounded like a cool idea, but alas, it was not to be.

The interception touchdown for me. The big house was so dead that day, and from that play forward it was crazy.
|5 years 36 weeks ago||I agree. While it isn't very||
I agree. While it isn't very probable, Fitzgerald is the player that I am most excited to see this year. If his scenario comes true, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

I guess you could say they were HANDED the spot.

I was worried about this game before it started. Wow, they just scored as I was typing. This is crazy.

What is Kiprusoff doing out there? He's just flopping all over the place. Or was, I should say, before he took himself out.
