Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.

Reassess your life? I think you should apply to become Harbaugh's official stenographer.

Beilein and the BB team should feel pretty happy that Harbaugh/signing day is taking the spotlight off of that bare-butt spanking they took last night. That was the basketball equivalent of the 2007 Oregon game.

I'm never playing Counterstrike again.

Who would sign a no compete clause in an assistant coaching contract? It would likely be unenforceable unless it was really limited in scope, like going to a school within the conference. Even then, you'd limit your candidates to the guys who are just happy to have a job.

I don't understand the Durkin vitriol. Prior to 12 noon last Saturday, he was a defensive wizard. Now he's the bastard son of GERG and Justin Boren. I know we're not used to our assistants actually being coveted by anyone, but it's not the end of the world.

For me, it's either the Sterling Sharpe playoff game mentioned above or the one where they lost to Minnesota after a scorching comeback because Muhlbach rolled the snap on the extra point (I don't remember the year but Joey Harrington was involved).
|10 weeks 9 hours ago||It's a fair point, but||
It's a fair point, but Michigan gets PSU, who is perceived as the same class of team (lol or not) the week before OSU. So it's not as if UM plays Rutgers that week. I think the league tried to set these weeks up as play in games for the division title.
|10 weeks 12 hours ago||The odd thing is that MSU||
The odd thing is that MSU also plays UM and OSU both on the road in the same year. Hollis seems universally respected. It made so much sense to keep the schedule as it was, thus OSU, UM and MSU would all have the split home-road with the other two in the same year. Yet, MSU and UM will have that disadvantage every other year.
It more suggests the power of Ohio State, and perhaps the conference's desire to keep its only consistent power program in that position, as more of a motivator that it would be to stick it to Brandon. Hollis seems universally respected and they stuck it to MSU too.

Along with their fantastic written content, I'll miss the catalog of excellent podcasts that occupied my commute. MGoPod/Radio only gets me through three days. What am I going to do without Barnwell/Mays, Wesley Morris and Cheap Heat?
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Can't wait to see how||
Can't wait to see how everyone wants to push the current "fifth years" out the door in December to make room for a 28 person recruiting class. A coach that would sit a freshman player to preserve a non-guaranteed fifth-year should be fired. (Of course this is not to say that they should play them regardless of whether they are ready like A&M does.)

I will never understand the excitement or furor over which team a guy predicts will win a game.

Ford Field, Saturday night. It's the Football Affected By Natural Disaster location of choice.

I wouldn't call MSU's win over Oregon "underwelming." It just doesn't look as impressive as it did two weeks ago.

It was Stretchgate that made us think he was cool. He handled that like a boss. Unfortunately, it was the last time he handled anything like a boss.
|24 weeks 2 days ago||Not sure you get how it||
Not sure you get how it works. Ablauf doesn't get Harbaugh to talk to the media. Ablauf releases statements, schedules conferences, etc. If Harbaugh doesn't want to do a press conference, there is no conference. Kind of like right now.

Grosse Pointe isn't mentioned, thus this list is invalid.

Not trying to be a smart ass or anything, but how does one statistically factor a new head coach?

I remember when Nike first outfitted the team in the 1990s, and people were upset because the swoosh was going to sully our uniform. They got over it, as evidenced by the fact that some here are losing their shit because the swoosh won't be making its return.

Yes, it was the blue and yellow one, a New Era fitted with the MLB logo on the back.

From my experience, the more money a league is worth, the more likely that some shady shit is going to happen ("teams buying players from lowly teams using share of winnings" being the most prevalent), meaning its more likely that you're actually going to hate or fight someone over something that was supposed to be an enjoyable pastime.
I advocate going the other way. Everyone chip in one time to buy a WWE Championship belt for $250. Winner gets it until next season. You won't find a cooler trophy, and everyone remains friends.
