Hard to say from the outside, but it certainly seems credible that Hoke didn't put together the best staff to surround himself (save Mattison).

If they bring in Sparty for a night game, AAPD best be ready.
Also: All Hail Hackett, Bringer of Harbaugh!

Can someone clarify that status of Ruddock? I didn't think he was officially headed to Michigan, and now we get posters putting him in the lead for the starting job. One of us has missed something. If it's me I'd love to know.

Well, your first mistake was reading Jason Whitlock. That guy also claimed it wasn't if but when Hoke won the NC for Michigan. That may have been my first concern about Hoke was that Whitlock thought he was great.

So we can't feel confident unless the coach has spent a decade at a single stop? How many "qualified" candidates is that measure going to leave. Good coaches move from less desireable stops to more desireable. I would say between San Diego and Stanford we can safely say he has succeeded on the college level. Clearly there are no guarantees, but it feels as good as we can reasonably expect.
Edited: original sounded douchier than I meant to.

Harbaugh's entire run at Stanford is remarkable. He walked into a program with one win the year before he arrived. Adjusting for the degree of difficulty, I'd call each year at Stanford impressive.
Similar story at San Fran, taking a mess of a team deep into the playoffs in year one. While it's common type of comments, there's plenty of evidence supporting these comments.

Speaking in favor of bewb-free places then launching into a conversation about your flyrod? Hypocrisy I say!
|1 week 11 hours ago||Who is calling plays is||
Who is calling plays is generally overblown in my opinion. It can change in a second if the head coach decides he needs to take over.

I've had a rough week. Show me the healing power of the posbang!

He has great physical tools, and he looks incredibly polished for his age. He would be a great center piece for a recruiting class.

A beautiful oasis of content in the vast desert of the offseason. Spring practice soon.

Bolivia is just that creepy room MGoBlog's parents tell us we're not allowed. Still part of the blog by my estimation.

I think they were just taken by my overwhelmingly sexy presence. Sorry everyone. My bad.

Huge thank you to Brian for writing this. It perfectly summarizes the relationship between Brandon and his 'customers.' I can only think now that the last time I thought about Jim Hackett was what a great job he did landing Harbaugh two months ago. What a wonderful change of pace.

If there's a time for personality red flags to drop someone, it's probably the year after Johnny Football's rookie season.

Happy that the kid got to make a decision with all the information available to him. I would have loved for him to join the Michigan class, but best of luck to him in Georgia.

There's clearly a body there. The correct answer is nobody. Perhaps the head could have stayed?

I get no long weekend, so I'll get my posbangin' in now.

I was lucky enough to catch this segment on the drive to work this morning. I highly encourage everyone to give it a listen when they can. Just great.
