What the fuck, people? One guy wants me to posbang a new user for posting a Terry Foster column and another is posting Ace Williams. What's next? Is Drew Sharp himself going to post in this thread?
|1 week 15 hours ago||Two truths;1) The source for||
Two educated guesses:
1) The source for at least one of these guys is Harbaugh's agent. Why would an agent lie to a reporter? As they all are using circumstances to infer that he's staying in the NFL (just as we are using circumstances to infer it's happening), they refuse to consider that they might have been pauns in an agent's plan to make sure Michigan's offer wasn't the "this is Michigan, fergodsakes" offer. At least Brian and others have been open to the idea that in the end, there's an attraction to staying in the pros.
2) Most of these guys "sources" are each other. It's kind of like the 247 Crystal Ball bullshit. One guy gets some piece of information and they all fall in line with their "people I'm talking to are saying..." crap.
|1 week 3 days ago||I doubt he was ever really in||
I doubt he was ever really in the picture, since his job should be relatively safe after winning the Super Bowl just two years ago. I think the idea of his candidacy was based on the Ray Rice thing and John's reported-and-later-denied dissent over the Ravens keeping Rice initially.
|1 week 6 days ago||Beyond the utter stupidity of||
Beyond the utter stupidity of the Denard Robinson quote is the one where he shits on us for being so stupid because we don't like sponsorships and in stadium advertising. Like we're all our grandpas upset because things aren't 1950. Hey asshole! If I wanted that shit as part of my gameday experience, I'd just pay to watch the NFL. Shit, I'd save money in doing so for a superior product! And the players would actually receive money compensation!
|1 week 6 days ago||Fuck that guy. Seriously.||
Fuck that guy. Seriously. Fire his ass. We'll see how strong a brand the block M is if they fuck up this hire.
|1 week 6 days ago||You're right, but...||
You're right, but... reporters are under extreme pressure to deliver content through several media. That's why Angelique shits out a quick rewrite of Michigan's search firm press release, even though it's not even newsworthy. You have to feed the beast and that particular topic - the Michigan coaching search - drives page views like a motherfucker. I don't envy most of them. The guy who posted the Gruden note, though, whoa. Look closer at those trees, fella, you might see the forest.
|1 week 6 days ago||I was going to post that||
I was going to post that Harbaugh did really well nationally for Stanford, which fed the program for the four years after he left. It'll be interesting to see if Shaw's recruiting will hold up like Harbaugh's did.
|1 week 6 days ago||She was the one who posted||
She was the one who posted the Instagram photo of it so I'm assuming she's okay.
|1 week 6 days ago||This take is so piping hot,||
This take is so piping hot, it lit Shelley Meyer's hair on fire.
|1 week 6 days ago||Why do you think the search||
Why do you think the search firm brought them to the table? It's pretty clear in both cases that they were preordained by the university.
|1 week 6 days ago||The search firm is cover for||
The search firm is cover for "we looked high and low before hiring the guy we were always going to hire." Hopefully, it will work out that way here too.

That's why he's not called THE_SPELLING
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Nothing screams out||
Nothing screams out CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT like UCLA v Memphis.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I think you went wrong when||
I think you went wrong when you referred to it as a "haircut" and not a "mop/wig."
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Gruden, Herm Edwards,||
Gruden, Herm Edwards, Belichick, Parcells... all traded within the last 15 years. Only one of them proved to be worth it. (Okay, Gruden was worth it too as Tampa won a SB in his first year, then the whole thing cratered once he had to develop his own QB. But still, they won.)
|2 weeks 6 days ago||1) How do you know that||
1) How do you know that Nebraska didn't call Mullen and he said he wasn't interested?
2) Dak Prescott was a Heisman candidate all season. They are 10-2 with two pretty tough losses at Alabama and Ole Miss. You can't say he was never able to find a QB in five years.

Negged for "chillax." Sorry, man, but it had to be done.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Probably easiest to think of||
Probably easiest to think of it as Michigan buying Hoke out of the remainder of the contract.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I probably wouldn't shit on||
I probably wouldn't shit on Jerry Kill. He nearly led a team with a third of the talent we supposedly have to the B1G Championship game and beat our ass in the process.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||You are wrong. The eight||
You are wrong. The eight miles between San Francisco and Oakland is quite far away IMO. But I don't have a car.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||You mean the time the refs||
You mean the time the refs said Ebron went out at the 10 where you can clearly see his foot on the nine and his body leaning forward while he was still inbounds (reflected above)? I don't know, man. Maybe if they'd been awarded the first down...
|6 weeks 1 day ago||You are crazy. Minnesota lost||
You are crazy. Minnesota lost to Illinois. And State would have destroyed us whether we played in East Lansing or on Jupiter.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||It's nearly impossible to||
It's nearly impossible to punish anything or anyone without there being an "innocent bystander" that is someway harmed. Any parent who goes to prison leaves a child behind without a parent.
In the NCAA's case, they slammed PSU for institutionally protecting a known child molester and gave every player the chance to leave for free without penalty. It's not the NCAA's fault few took them up on the offer.

WD is our William Wallace. They could take our winning football program, but they couldn't take our freedom.

Great choice for The Prestige.

Ha, I didn't even check Illinois's record because Illinois.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||Four years, one win over a||
Four years, one win over a bowl team on the road (2011 Northwestern, which finished 6-7).
Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.

Maybe a good reporter?
|9 weeks 3 days ago||Not a new thought, I know,||
Not a new thought, I know, but it's as if Hoke is an actor trying to play Schembechler, reading from a script written in 1985.

I'm befuddled by the number of people on this board with no sense of humor. I really shouldn't be.
