Let's just enjoy what Spike gave us.. Have a drink and calm down big dog.

Thank you, for recognizing the snark. It's always good to start your Tuesdays off with a hearty cup of snark.

That the newspaper business isn't out of business because the lack of being able to adhere to the block quote rule. I think the Internet and information availability played a small part.

Is this a known nickname for Mattison, or just given to him for this thread?
|9 weeks 5 days ago||Can somebody catch me up||
Sorry, I have filtered through a lot before asking this, but can somebody catch me up as to why Hackett is stepping down. Through a couple of posts, people have referenced retirement. Is it voluntary and Hackett is choosing to be done? I ask because it seems obvious, but why wouldn't he just stay and get the interim tag removed?

Where does the rarely seen "Double-Directional" State University fall on the hierarchy? Southwest Missouri State? Southwest Minnesota State? Among others???

I heard Oakland was still in play.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Not sure why you got downvoted||
I honestly couldn't agree more.. Taking a middling big-school in a power conference does not seem to be the correct route for coaches.. Its hard to win and it affects your record too much. Take a strong program in a weaker conference when those job open up, kill it, and you look like the next head coach guru.. Even RR is trending down now. People love to hire the 11-1 (Insert MAC, AAC, team name here) rather than a 4-8 Power 5 coach.
|11 weeks 3 hours ago||Agreed||
On the healthy part... but also agree on Minor being a beast.... when healthy LOL
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Wouldn't be surprised||
That stat seems about right to me... A little troubling, but its nice to not have to hit the panic button anymore when seeing a stat like that.. Harbaughs got it under control.
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Overlap||
I am luke-warm on the overlap...Maybe I am the exception. I find it hard to really get into basketball during football and I would LIKE to care more about UM hoops during Nov./Dec. but don't find myself following it closely enough since I was in Ann Arbor.. Either way, I will agree that its a great Tues/Wed filler!
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Correct||
You are correct, I use the term face-guarding more to explain that being turned towards the receiver heightens chances of PI, but yes.. You are correct, it is only written as illegal professionally.

The Best Damn Blog in the World!! TBDBITW!! Cheers to Brian, this blog has also taught me about 50 different meanings of acronyms, so of course its educational!
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Exactly||
I would say that it happens enough that run defenses recognize the risk. Contain is there for a reason, not letting an HB draw get to the edge when the gap assignments are filled comes down to either the OLB's or CB's or even a Safety depending on the play call.. You are correct.

“He should not be here, " said the fish in the pot. " he should not be here when your mother is not.”
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Yes to increased likelihood but...||
The risk/reward here favors a last second reading of the eyes and with minimal contact, face-guarding isn't going to be called. If a DB always turned his head back to the ball, they would be getting burnt all day unless they are freaks ala Richard Sherman,,,,who still got hurt by it on Sunday Night in the Michael Floyd TD catch.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Quick Response||
Thing 1 - Proper tackling and wrapping up in football is much harder than it looks, good RB's should be able break arm tackles or half blocked tackles and "bounce off" unless the DL/LB is a beast....... Thing 2 - Another task that is highly easier said than done. Proper defense is having an arm on WR and being able to swing head back around for vision of the ball, but staying with a highly athletic WR who knows where they are going and you don't as DB is a task in and of itself. It is coached that as a last resort, to read the receivers eyes as the ball comes in if the WR has a half a step on you. Yes, it is more likely to be called PI, but if there is minimal contact, face guarding isn't a definite PI.

If the "/s" isn't universally accepted, and someone writes a sarcastic sentence using /s, essentially saying I am being sarcastic about my sarcasm, doesn't that cross out the sarcasm within said sentence??? Anarchy reigns supreme!

|12 weeks 4 days ago||Not trying to argue||
I too don't have an opinion on the matter but if the three coaches prior to a Bo didn't know they existed, then our population is a lot of coaches that I certainly don't mind disagreeing with.. If our extensive tradition without helmet stickers consists of basically Carr/RR/and Hoke... The the only part of that "tradition" I want to remember is Carr and Denard and I'll gladly take the helmet stickers.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||I "present" the idea||
Because it seems very clear to the obvious bystander that with Harbaugh comes helmet stickers.... Maybe he will change the size, maybe he will make them harder to earn, I don't know... But he obviously uses them, and the other coaches obviously didn't.. That seems pretty clear.. It's not my or your call as to whether they happen or not, it's Harbaughs... So there are threeways you can go once that conclusion is drawn...1. You can talk to Harbaugh about your disliking of the helmet stickers and demand that they be removed due to the fact that you think it will hinder recruiting. (This option is a little far fetched) 2. You can accept that with Harbaugh, comes helmet stickers and hope that recruits are at least somewhat logical and want to play for The University of Michigan, Jim Harbaugh, and the rest of the NFL experienced staff that we currently boast, despite the "helmet stickers", or 3. You can hate the helmet stickers, continue to let it bother you while you wish for the best of both worlds, and continue living your life... With any of these options, my guess is the helmet stickers are here to stay as long as Harbaugh is the coach and I for one would take that over some coach that chooses not to use them.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Agree but lets weigh the options...||
Agree that unis, helmets, looks matter to recruits. But other things that matter to recruits are winning, and coaches... So I will happily take Harbaugh and the stickers over Hoke/Rodriguez/Carr and no stickers any day.... Both for my sanity and recruiting purposes..Plus we have Jumpman uniforms coming.. I think recruits will be happy with uniforms... The first time I hear a recruit say "I chose Oregon over Michigan and Harbaugh because of the uniforms" I will retract all of this.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||No, no, its ok||
Because its YOUR dog, that makes it ok.

I am a former minor leaguer who actually works for a very well established secondary market ticket firm. I have data on roughly 70% of all venues within the big 4 sports and NCAAF, of course some of that data is company confedential, but if people need to know how, where, and when to buy tickets for UM or a couple other teams..Let me know..
