Embracing a foot injury with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind!
What an example of how a positive attitude can make everybody you interact with better.

And so would Coach!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Run Around Suh||
Keep away from a run around Suh.
Correct decision here. Do not need for that kind of money. He is all about himself and not the team and a championship. This proves it.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Ditto||
My game day hat as well. Resisted it for years, but my little guys got the winged helmet winter hats, and that finally pushed me over the edge to get the winged helmet look cap.

Turn the corner! It is not over until we say it's over!
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Disagree||
I think our guys are being sold a bill of goods, and therefore are making bad decisions to leave too early. I do not question their right to do so. Also, I always root for them regardless of my personal opinion.
This is clearly the case here, and now Funchess' career is in jeopardy.
I think our guys are not being advised properly. The leagues have a vested interest in in ticking these kids to leave to the enrichment of the draft pool.
Sometimes, players should sacrifice immediate gain for a much larger sum later on. I think that is a valid opinion here.

The most capable vehicles in the world, bar none.
My dream car is a Wrangler. Some day when I do not need a minivan for the kids - sigh.

Period. Not even close.
I am rooting for him like I would any other M player that enters the NFL.
However, he got bad advice here. He should have stayed. Seems like he would have improved a ton with JH's enthusiasm alone. I think this shows there are work ethic issues here.
This also seems like a recurring issue with M football, and even M major sports in general. Seems like our guys leave way sooner than they should and at higher numbers than other programs, even in the B1G. I think this needs to be addressed.

Pure genious. It is why Belichick is the best. He looked Seattle straight in the eye, and they blinked.

This is the license plate from Tom Brady's new red pick-up truck!

Who's got it better than us? NOOOOOOOBODY
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Pure Genious||
Belichick not calling time out was pure genious, and one of the most tactically brilliant moves in Super Bowl history. Seattle expected Belichick to call time out, and he did not comply. This left Seattle with a running clock and only one timeout. They clearly wanted to run the ball into the end zone and probably preferred to try this three times in a row. When NE did not call time out, this caused Bevell to panic and call the disastrous pass play. It was clear that they were confused, and this confusion was initiated by Belichick zigging when Seattle expected a zag. Brian, under most circumstances, I would agree to use your timeouts. Here, though, with Seattle only sitting on one timeout, and needing a TD instead of a chip shot field goal, I believe that Belichick's game of high-stakes chicken saved the game for his team.

You do not leave the league unles the league says it is OK.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||It Means:||
it means JH is in OSU's head, too.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Yes||
Now that's a classic jersey.
Somebody designing these things has got to understand that we have classic, and beautiful colors, and we do not need to resort to gimmickry and foppish design elements.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||No Like, No Buy||
Just way tired of the stripes already. Every alternate jersey has to be striped like crazy. Enough.
Dude who is wearing it looks like he was forced to just like the kid in the bunny pajamas in a Christams Story.

Per Brian's hello post.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Meeting Has Not Started Yet||
Still waiting for JH and Durkin to finish their hoops match-up. Score is 2-1 JH is up after 30 min. of play.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Who In the World?||
Exactly who is the bat shit crazy mastermind that is the HC of this outfit? He sure picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue!
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Agree He Is Probably Good||
But let's not box ourselves into a corner saying "only." Remember Barwis. He was great but the program as a whole is much more important. There is other talent out there to be found.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Relax||
JH found these guys and was a part of making them excellent coaches. If they decide not to come, others will be found.
We have the guy that turned Stanford into an excellent program and pulled them off of the trash heap. Same with SF and USD.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Fine Line||
M over the past couple of years is the poster child for the extremely fine line between winning and losing in college football. We have the guy now who will push us by brute force over to the right side of that line. RELAX!
|12 weeks 7 hours ago||Expression?||
Can't tell from the expression if he won or lost.
|12 weeks 7 hours ago||Agree||
Need to be sure that there is always a way for the SEC runner-up to get in.
|12 weeks 8 hours ago||Feels Like:||
|12 weeks 8 hours ago||You Misunderstood||
His comment is correct. No BIG team has played in a NC game since Lloyd left the conference. BIG needs a strong M in order to become nationally relevant again.
|12 weeks 8 hours ago||Defense||
I feel like our defense was good last year, and will improve this year. OSU's defense is good but not unbeatable. The Game is at home next year. The seeds of an upset are hereby planted.
|12 weeks 8 hours ago||Not Salty But Accurate||
He was not being salty but making a comparison. Plus, it is OK to be upset when somebody runs up the score on you - just do something about it in the next game, that's all.
|12 weeks 9 hours ago||Count on Big Improvement||
In his first year, JH authored a +3 game improvement at Stanford, and a +7 game improvement at SF which is pro-rated to +5.6 game improvement over a 13 game schedule.
Considering we will have much better talent available than that Stanford squad did, and maybe less than the SF squad, a conservative improvement for M next year with JH at the helm would be +4. So my guess would be 9-4 or 10-3 including a bowl game.
We have our guy as a coach. Let's get behind him and show some optimism. I know we have been conditioned for failure in the recent past, but that is over now.
Who has it better than us? NOOOOOBODY!!!!
