|1 week 3 days ago||Totally Unprompted||
Totally unprompted, my youngest son referred to Ohio St. as the Buttguys for the first few years that he became aware of sports (3-5 yrs old). I have to admit that I was bummed when he finally figured out that was not really the nickname. Needless to say I never tried very hard to correct him.

I feel like there is very good reason to believe that Hawaii thinks June 31st is a real thing.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Money, Money, Money||
Another only concerned with making huge sums of money off of the backs of those who cannot protect themselves. Money has always been his "bigger fish." Just ask OSU.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||NCAA||
NCAA is more corrupt by a mile. Maybe they break fewer laws, but that is not a complete measure of corruption.
NCAA is supposed to be protecting student athletes, and underpinning the educational aspects of sports in the lives of those they represent. Instead, they line their pockets with money from rich networks and bowl executives; thus withholding it from those who really earned it in the first place. They protect major programs that break the rules because they fear it will cut into their largesse. All of this under the guise of protecting those from whom they steal.
FIFA has no pretense about trying to protect their constituency. They are trying to make money and overreach in doing so.
I do not care about the laws being broken, as much as the corruption of the stated mission of the organization.

A man like this is why it is truly special to be a part of "this Michigan of ours."
He is now getting coached once again by Yost, Crisler, Oosterbaan, and Schembechler.

The take here is very simple: to a guy like Jimbo, there is only breaking the rules if you get caught. Everybody knows about Harbaugh's spring break practices; therefore he broke the rules. This is the morality of the SEC/ACC.

Same as the old boss!
|20 weeks 6 days ago||What Is Needed to Change the Rule?||
Anybody know what action is required in order to change the rule about this type of trip? Is it Emmert decree or SEC whining? Is it two thirds majority vote of member institutions?
How is it assumed that it will be so easy to change this rule when southern schools have been able to block baseball scheduling rules to preserve their competitive advantage over the north? It would seem that northern schools would be able to block the no trip rule.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||In Harbaugh, I Trust||
But why do we care anymore? We now have the best. Would not trade him for Belichek or any team of twenty head coaches you could group together.

Harbaugh is playing chess while the SEC coaches are struggling with checkers.
This is way too much fun!

Delaney thought process:
Answer is no to all of the above. Therefore, no effort expended.
|22 weeks 11 hours ago||Strongest Point||
This is one of the strongest points. This type of trip is literally done all over the place throughout the NCAA. Sparty even allowed there basketball team travel to Texas mid-season. Even club teams train like this. Other football teams including M have trained in SD with the Marines. This is such a non-issue that it is not even funny.

As an M alum and engineer that has spent my entire career at Chrysler, I truly appreciate the legacy of this great man. May he rest in peace and may Perpetual Light shine upon him.

Can we make that a thing?
|28 weeks 5 days ago||Not 5-7||
5-7 would be an upgrade for this year's 49ers. They were 5-11.
Record would not even be that good without the good fortune of having St. Louis in their division.

Score was flipped the whole game on MGoBlue.com. Scared the heck out of me. I feel much better now.

|37 weeks 5 days ago||Accountability and Hard Work||
Your team rots from within rapidly if playing time is awarded rather than earned based upon hard work and results. Period.
JH knows this and as a result, hard work and fair competition are the hallmarks of his program.
If the kid earned it, he should play. It is that simple. If somebody older wants the job, they should outwork and outperform him.
Finally, we need to trust JH and is staff that playing Newsome is the right call. We do not have access to the practice tape and all of the other inputs that the coaches have access to. JH deserves this respect. Hoke lost that right after the bad decisions he and his staff made stacked higher than a tower of turtles.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||Harbaugh Knows||
I am going to go ahead and assume that JH knows what will resonate with each kid he is recruiting.
|41 weeks 1 day ago||Bargain||
Harbaugh is a bargain at twice the price. As a matter of fact, JH could have gotten much more than his current salary. As he himself said, he is not on the same dance floor as Mother Teresa, but he is not greedy either. Bottom line, beware of chancellors in general. Blank, Palpatine, etc.

Look in the mirror, chancellor.
|46 weeks 3 days ago||Give 'Em a Chance||
How about we give them a chance to play a game before demanding results on the field?
|46 weeks 4 days ago||Relaxed||
Coach Harbaugh seems more relaxed and jovial than I have seen him since he has been here. I wonder if that alludes to some quiet confidence about the season? Or just wishful thinking on my part.

That vehicle is not fit to be in the same parking lot as a Jeep. A cheap knock-off, nothing more.

How am I supposed to sleep tonight knowing that Schiano was almost our HC, and not Jim Harbaugh?
