If we're going to get a new thread everytime web posters shit on Funchess as a prospect, this board is going to be hard for the mods to tame.

I wasn't aware that accepting a phone call from the media meant that you were obligated to divulge all of your personal business for publication.

I get the sense they're going to announce the entire staff at once. They may not know everyone's assignments until the staff is complete.

NFL reporters report what they are told by team execs and agents. If the Jets/Bears told him they weren't interested, which they probably did since they don't want to look like they were turned down, that's what Clayton reported. The problem is that a reporter's job is also to cut through the bullshit. Thus the story looks like Harbaugh was either too expensive (Bears, which they definitely don't want reported) or there wasn't any interest (Jets/Raiders/anyone else). Clayton reported the denial rather than the story.
|11 weeks 10 hours ago||What the fucking fuck,||
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?
|11 weeks 1 day 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.
|11 weeks 4 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.
|12 weeks 4 hours 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!

Fuck that guy. Seriously. Fire his ass. We'll see how strong a brand the block M is if they fuck up this hire.
|12 weeks 5 hours 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.
|12 weeks 5 hours 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.

She was the one who posted the Instagram photo of it so I'm assuming she's okay.

This take is so piping hot, it lit Shelley Meyer's hair on fire.

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.
|12 weeks 8 hours 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.

I think you went wrong when you referred to it as a "haircut" and not a "mop/wig."

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.)

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.

Probably easiest to think of it as Michigan buying Hoke out of the remainder of the contract.

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.

You are wrong. The eight miles between San Francisco and Oakland is quite far away IMO. But I don't have a car.

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...
