You keep beating me to the punch.
|20 weeks 16 hours ago||No one said it was the only reason.||
But this'll be my last post, because I get the sense you're not to be convinced.
1. Recruiting advantages only matter if you can scout and project talent. Taking commits from maxed out 16 year olds, and uncoachable knuckleheads erodes any perceived advantage.
2. Mack changed the perception of UT, you're correct. Perceptions, though, are just that--not reality.
3. No one is saying that Strong didn't have a hand in the current state of the program, Strong most of all. Watson was a bad hire--system doesn't fit the recruiting base. More broadly, Strong seems to prefer a pro-set, and that's a crazy thing in a state where every high school runs the spread. His recent hires indicate he understand this now, and is working to correct it.
4. Disagree that Florida was a bigger mess. Muschamp (an excellent coach) had very, very similar problems to what Strong is facing. He got fired for cleaning it up (and running a stupid pro set offense). We'll see if Strong suffers the same fate.
|20 weeks 17 hours ago||Well...||
When you make it abundantly clear that no one is going to pass Case McCoy on the depth chart, it makes it hard to keep kids in the program. And the idea of handing the offense over to Swoopse--who seems like a great kid, but went like 2-7 his senior year in 1-A--is just unbelievable screw up.
|20 weeks 17 hours ago||I'm sorry, you're wrong on this.||
The foundation of the program was rotten--entitled players, poor scouting and development etc. There's a reason you haven't heard too much chirping about Strong's record (up until recentley, at least). And that's because everyone who pays attention knew this was a rebuild from the start.

Champs at the bit. fyi.

From one of Strong's pressers earlier this year regarding players on thin ice. I'm a big fan.

There can be no true despair without hope.

He recruits and coaches a heck of an o-line, I'll give him that. But that's all.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Disagree||
Greg Davis acolyte. Also demonstrates questionable player management skills. See, running David Ash on QB isos two weeks after a concussion.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Neither Mack Brown||
nor DKR were "Texas Men" and they did just fine. As for politics, that only really helps a coach retain a position when he's underperforming--I'd just assume have a unpolished coach who will either win or gtfo.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||I'll take that bet||
Texas doesn't need Nick Saban with its resources. Just a solid X and Os guy with an ability to instill toughness. Strong is that guy, though any number of other coaches would have also fit the bill.

That's something you don't see everyday on a Michigan blog.
|2 years 26 weeks ago||I remember||
When I got drunk and posted.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||I mean,||
I think the announcement came after the banquet (last night), and after Saban signed his extension (yetsterday). The Heisman ceremony is neither here nor there.
|2 years 28 weeks ago||Really?||
You really think they were trying to steal the thunder from the Heisman ceremony?
|3 years 3 weeks ago||I suppose||
But I think tennis has some pretty stringent testing proceedures, no? And Nadal has always been more thickly built than other top players, save maybe Tsonga.
|3 years 3 weeks ago||That's a good point||
I suppose the US has been without a consisent threat to win a major for so long, I don't have much of a national rooting interest these days, even at the US Open. I just enjoy the matches for what they are.

He seems like a pretty good dude, and is a hell of a competitor. What's to hate?

Keep up the awesome work.

as in The Silmarillion? That's awesome, though it seems you're fated for a trip to Bolivia at some point.

The knowledge that you will be letting your teammates down by acting like a knucklehead is the best deterrent there is in a team setting.

Play action waggle, complete for 3, receiver gets leveled.

And call it a subscription fee. Would that make you happy?
For me, I'll tolerate the crowd sourcing, and be content knowing that Brian is getting some of that Internet Money, friend. Wouldn't want MGoBlog to go on strike.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||And you spend all day in his threads||
bashing him. Who's worse?
Also, way to call him a liar.

It's getting time for NCAA to rule on his eligibility. Could be that.

Baylor is a 6-6 team this year--they just lost way too much, and their defense is borderline RR-era bad. Still rooting for Stonum, though.
