Let me state this clearly, since it appears this will never stop: PELINI WAS NEVER GOING TO COACH PITT WITH PEDERSON THERE AS AD. I don't know why some people continue to fail to understand that an AD who did not retain Pelini when he was interim at Nebraska (and instead went with Bill Callahan) was NEVER going to hire Pelini at Pitt.

Yes you can. Why does this misconception persist?

Sorry. How about this: I disagree because he was wrong to presume that this is a preemption issue.

Why is anyone remotely surprised that Pelini to Pitt didn't happen? With that AD in place that was NEVER going to happen. Ever.

Oh come on. Seriously? It's not political; it's logic. The damn thing didn't put itself there.

Yes. It was literally among the first things that came out after Hoke was let go.

The answer to why the media is reporting on this is in this thread. This is the most educated group on what goes on with Michigan and there are a ton of posts expressing that they didn't know about something that's been known here since the very beginning of the process. Of that many people here don't know it, I certainly am not surprised that the media is acting like it's news.

Exactly. Especially when you couple that with the fact that Pederson went with Callahan over interim Pelini.

I'd be really be surprised if Pelini goes to Pitt. Pederson is still AD there and I can't imagine Pelini's pride is yet over the decision to go with Bill Callahan over (the then interim) Pelini after Pederson canned Frank Solich.

In theory yes, but I'd be shocked if that happened. Pitt's AD is the same guy that didn't give Pelini the job at Nebraska when he was interim after Solich and instead went with Bill Callahan. I can only imagine how that relationship would i

Steve Pederson may be the worst AD in all of major college sports when it comes to football decisions. He's the guy that hired Bill Callahan (and thus turned down Pelini) at Nebraska and is responsible for all of the coaching turnover at Pitt.

Never mind that those 10 quality wins came over absolutely no one of quality...

"the better quality wins against sparty and Wisconsin, and probably the best offense in the country even with their 3rd string qb."

False. You could make a terrible argument for all three teams. This is the year where there are four spots but only three teams that were obviously worthy of a spot. Thus, the best of the rest (OSU) gets Alabama. In New Orleans.

I'm pretty sure that their first tiebreaker was always ranking, regardless of how many teams were tied.

Why Baylor? Under the Big 12's tiebreaker from back when they had a championship it would have been TCU (not Baylor) that would have won their division (I think it's safe to assume they would have been in the same division) and gone to the championship game. Can't punish TCU for the fact that the Big 12 doesn't have enough teams.

None of these teams has beat anyone who beat anyone else (that was good). If they're playing this straight up it should be TCU just on the virtue of the quality of their loss being better than OSU's, as both teams had closer wins throughout the year tHan they should have, but TCU won convincingly more regularly.

Ace, I've been through a very similar situation and I feel for you tremendously. Mine started out as a whole bunch of ambiguous symptoms, that we first treated as gluten intolerance and some other food intolerances (soy, dairy, corn), and eventually determined was none of the above. The not having an answer (and a name for it) was one of the hardest parts, along with the roller coaster of diagnoses that didn't ultimately pan out. The list of diagnoses that you listed is similar to mine, and it ended up being none of them. For me it ended up being something pretty unusual: histamine intolerance. Obscure, weird, but a lot easier to deal with than any of the other diagnoses previously considered (primarily: no debilitating medications). I suggest that you do a little bit of reading on it and at least ask your doctors about it (as good as your doctors surely are, it's a newer diagnosis and many doctors don't even know it exists). In a nutshell, certain foods (and things including bug bites, etc) cause your body to release histamine (mimicking an allergic reaction, but not an allergic reaction) which sends your immune system into hyperdrive (the body of a person without this releases a counteracting chemical), causing a whole host of ambiguous symptoms (that aren't the same from person to person) that you'd never even think to think of when making a list of symptoms (because they are so seemingly unrelated). If you're kicking the tires on the list that you mentioned, you'd better at least look into this one. I had found it on my own, but my immunologist confirmed it (without me even bringing it up). I hope you get this figured out soon, and I send you all the well wishes possible!

Not necessarily. Argument would be that they would have, by far, the two best wins in the country.
