I'm not sure I understand why some are so against this. The man knows how to form a coaching tree, so any coaching search 3-8 years hence will be 100% smoother than the last two.

I'm just a schmo and I could have set him up with a few retirement accounts in like 1 week, probably 4 hours of real actual work. He would be set up for life and yes, he could have taken care of his parents too. Where do these "financial advisors" come from?

Sounds like Jack and Jill need better strength and conditioning, but that's none of my business...
|2 weeks 2 days ago||If it isn't going to be win||
If it isn't going to be win championships every other year like Alabama, it better damn well be entertaining.
Watching the games isn't my job and it shouldn't feel like it, certain entities' opinions be damned.

To add to TheHoke's answer, just a few pings I've tried tell me the lag from Michigan to Tampa is ~50ms and to Chicago it's ~15ms.
Step up your game, speed of light!

You're right, they're on dreamhost. I'm kind of surprised. But if they were on Amazon, the scaling up and down would not be automatic unless you made it so. Otherwise, they would be able to charge you more without your authorization.
Edit: they may instead have a VPS from NOC4Hosts, and Dreamhost is just the public dns server. Or, Dreamhost and NOC4Hosts are the same. Either way, the IP address I'm seeing is located in Tampa, FL which is also surprising. I'd go for something in Chicago.
|3 weeks 14 hours ago||Gateway timeout is equivalent||
Gateway timeout is equivalent to 2000 people wanting to get into Disney World at 8am and they all plan to give up if they can't get in in under 10 minutes. Replace people with site requests, disney world with mgoblog and 10 minutes with a few seconds.
I believe this site is hosted on Amazon Web Services, so it should in theory be able to automate the scaling up and down of resources as they are needed, but I've never configured this so I can't say how easy it is to do. You could also change the timeout setting, but after, say 30 seconds, even the most patient person is going to walk away.

I wonder if Brian's mystery email header this morning was related to this.
/Twilight Zone Music
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Late to the game, but...||
Copy the entire header into the message analyzer here:
Everything will be nice and plain english, mostly. The most important thing is to know the ip address and whether that ip address/domain is an open relay, because that makes masquerading much easier.
Also, you might want to check the SPF record, if they even have one, for the domain. That tells you whether they write in stone, and in public, how strict their standards are for sending email from their domain.

I think Brian Kelly and Greg Schiano's layer of dirt is too low. Way too low for Schiano. Bucs players and administration hate him.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I wish Brian's official||
I wish Brian's official stance were that he wanted Stitt as OC. I haven't heard a word about what he can do for defense, he's admitted he'd be interested in a carte blanche OC position, let's face it--he's not proven at anywhere close to the Div-I level, and it's 10 times more realistic, which is to say a 1% chance of happening. He could be Gus Malzahn 2.0 or Gerry Faust 2.0. Malzahn was an OC first though.

This is why I don't trust anyone from Saban's coaching tree. I do think Nussmeier is a good coach, but only because of his extensive track record.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Devil's advocate here. Fast||
Devil's advocate here. Fast food companies can actually flourish in a recession. There are many reasons I won't get into why this is so. For examples, see McDonald's and Little Caesar's Pizza. So I think Domino's absolutely dropped the ball in 2007.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||The best way Hoke and Brandon||
The best way Hoke and Brandon can earn their salaries until the day they are fired is to stop talking to anyone that is recording what they say. Not even a word.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Remember when Dave Brandon||
Remember when Dave Brandon wouldn't humor any coaching candidate other than Hoke? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||You should add "has a||
You should add "has a coaching tree". This means he knows how to mold coaches and should have a smooth transition to the next guy. That's one of the most desperate needs right now. No more scandalous and divisive coaching searches. Let's know who's up next ahead of time for the first time since 1994. I don't know if he's the best candidate, but he's miles better than any other older guys.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Translation: We haven't fired||
Translation: We haven't fired Brandon yet, wink wink.
I mean, connect the dots. Nobody's heard from the AD (including Coach Hoke) since the loss. It all makes too much sense.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||As a confessed aggressively||
As a confessed aggressively reasonable person, I still don't get why, as I was reminded on twitter this morning, the coaching staff hid Taylor Lewan's helmet from him last year to keep him off the field after a head injury but they didn't use anything approaching a decision flowchart here. I think the only explanation is the pressure has gotten to Hoke and his decision making is suffering for it (see: holding Morris in too long just purely on a performance level).

Tom Brady and Bill Belichick made Charlie Weis a LOT of money.
|11 weeks 19 hours ago||That's why the rivalry is so||
That's why the rivalry is so good. It isn't either school's #1 rivalry, but it is consistently a good game and an interesting game, and the bragging rights are much bigger. Everyone M fan knows an ND fan and vice versa, but every ND fan doesn't know a USC fan or vice versa.
I don't think many schools have a rivalry like MICH-ND, but a lot of schools have a rivalry like MICH-OSU, ND-USC or MICH-MSU.
|11 weeks 20 hours ago||You throw it up for grabs||
You throw it up for grabs 15-25 yards downfield in a place where somebody is guaranteed to catch it, hopefully your guy. But if not, the DB won't be able to help himself if it's there, so it's easier and better than a pooch punt.
Clock stops on change of possession, so running doesn't matter unless it's your best chance at a first down. The actual running of a long pass play probably kills more time than anything but a 50+ yard run.

About 5 seconds in, all the pragmatists here are going to realize they're rooting against MSU whether they like it or not.

Haven't heard anyone mention the 2013 NC game yet.
Compared to that game, which ended 42-14, ND's defense is worse all around and Nussmeier's offense is worse in the OL, better at QB and #1 WR, same-ish everywhere else according to this guy. It will be an interesting game.
