DO YOU SPEAK IT?
|5 days 2 hours ago||Obviously anyone who put stickers on helmets||
Doesn't care about THE TEAM, THE TEAM, THE TEAM.
(I actually don't care, but I do think it's kind of funny you're quoting Bo against helmet stickers when his teams used them.)
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Exactly||
I assume his source is either is Baalke or whoever Baalke's top subordinate is.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||He's literally reporting what his source said||
The question is do we trust his source? Considering who his source is likely to be and what the 49ers have done lately, I wouldn't.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Give it a year or two||
They're working on it, though.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||The B1G should have twenty teams||
The Big Ten Division can have Michigan, Ohio State, Northwestern, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Michigan State, Iowa, Indiana and Purdue.
The Other Division can have Penn State, Rutgers, Maryland, Nebraska and six other teams.
Teams will only play teams in other division in the conference championship game.

So get cats!
But cats have toxoplasma gondii.
Well, you can always seal yourself inside a plastic bubble.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Stop the presses!||
A coach is using coach speak.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Honeymoon phase||
Give it time.
|7 weeks 9 hours ago||Me too|
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Weather can be pretty variable||
It doesn't look exciting, but they did have reports of snow.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Should I point out that Wilson is on there four times?||
Nah, I probably shouldn't.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Which is why Suh and the Lions are in the Super Bowl||
Go Lions! Beat the Pats!
|8 weeks 6 days ago||From the cool story bro department||
A friend of mine was moving and rented a truck, which he parked in front of his apartment. After we had loaded the damn thing, it wouldn't start. If I remember correctly it turned out it had been filled with regular gasoline instead of diesel. So we had to scramble to find a pickup truck and various other cars to get him moved.
On Monday he calls up to try to get his money back. Initially they tried to blame him for the whole problem, of course, but eventually they grudgingly admit that he was in the right and that they'll give him his money back.
When he looks at his VISA statement the next month, he notices that they've credited him seven times. He never said a word.
|11 weeks 1 hour ago||You can thank me for not taking that bet||
It would have jinxed the whole damn thing and we'd be bitching about Coach Schiano now.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||As well as a lot of suspended talent||
They'd been 12-1 and (until he was suspended) had a senior Terrelle Pryor returning. If Pryor had played for the whole year instead of the Joe Bauserman/freshman Braxton Miller combo, I have to imagine they'd have won at least another 2-3 games.
That's not even counting the other guys they had suspended for a good chunk of the year, like DeVier Posey.
|14 weeks 1 day ago||Football coverage isn't terribly good||
(I assume he was being sarcastic. For the sake of my liver I can only hope somebody else hires Addazio quickly, though.)
|16 weeks 8 hours ago||Nebraska AD is clearly a dog person||
Although I suppose it could be his personality.
|16 weeks 8 hours ago||That's not entirely fair||
He was at Oakland for two of their last three playoff appearances, and lost to the eventual Super Bowl champion both times. That Oakland team under Bill Callahan that Tampa Bay beat in the Super Bowl was as much his as that Tampa Bay team was Tony Dungy's. (Although it got clobbered.)
I don't see him coaching again either, though.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Prepare for 8 million rumors||
7,999,999 to go.
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Eh, Bob Devaney built Nebraska||
Osborne was a guy who couldn't win the big one up until the last four years of his career. If he had retired after the 1993 season, he'd be remembered for the 1983 team and the failed two-point conversion against Miami. That was when the Nebraska-Oklahoma game was a big thing, and Osborne was 5-12 against Barry Switzer.
Still, Nebraska did have a great run from 1994-1997.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Northwestern at Ohio State||
|18 weeks 11 hours ago||Just Nick Saban||
Or do you really think that's "Gatorade" Alabama puts in those coolers?
|18 weeks 11 hours ago||That's an easy one, actually||
Michigan 27, Vanderbilt 7
Vanderbilt 24, Georgia 22
Georgia 37, Auburn 15
Auburn 27, Florida 17
So 2006 Michigan was 54 points "better" than 2006 Florida.
(And yes, that's entirely tongue in cheek. Don't make me add an /s.)
|18 weeks 3 days ago||Nah, they're getting Gruden||
John Madden will be his OC and Bill Parcells will be his DC. Everybody knows.
|20 weeks 8 hours ago||Posting from Siberia, of course||
I assume via satellite.
|20 weeks 2 days ago||They had excellent timing||
Tressel was fired long after signing day in 2011, and Meyer was hired early enough to save the 2012 recruiting class. The timing was similar for Michigan with Lloyd Carr, who became interim coach after signing day and became permanent coach at the end of November.
For Michigan, Hoke's struggles will likely hurt this year's class. So would promoting one of the assistants to an extended interim role, as it extends the uncertainty for a longer period. Recruiting for the next year is uncertain as well--unless the interim coach wins the job full time like Carr did.
The good news is that this year's class will be small anyway, and if Hackett or the new AD makes a good hire in a timely fashion it shouldn't be a problem..
|20 weeks 2 days ago||Let's screw up two years of recruiting!||
I also don't think there's any chance Nuss becomes interim coach for more than a possible bowl game (assuming we become bowl eligible). If he wants to be a head coach, a long-term interim coach is not a good situation and not a good career move.
Fickell was only interim coach for as long as he was because the Tressel scandal happened so late in the offseason (much in the same way Lloyd Carr--who didn't originally want to be a head coache--ended up Michigan's coach after the Moeller fiasco). I think he made a mistake in staying on at Ohio State if he does want to be a head coach.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||True enough||
The two bowl teams we beat in 2008 were pretty marginal, though (both of them finished 7-6).
Just to be clear, I'm also not suggesting that RR should have kept his job. While his teams did improve, they didn't improve nearly enough.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||We were better every year from 2008-2010||
We've gotten worse every year from 2011 to 2014.
So in that sense it's different. In the sense that neither coach in those years has been successful overall, no.
