that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

Kid is two years out, 6-6 and 225. Identified and offered early by a coach with a proven track record of developing tight ends for the NFL and putting them in Pro Bowls.
Didn't the whole offers and starzzz debate just get killed with fire?

Browns fan. I dislike these new uniforms.
OP, what the hell are you talking about..."teams with no history, no equity and no brand". That is the most ridiculous assessment of the Browns.
While Browns management have historically been legendarily inept (see Modell, Art; Policy, Carmen; Clark, Dwight; Holmgren, Paul and on and on) they retain the equity of the NFL's most loyal fanbase. These are the same fans who supported the return of the team to Cleveland (our team/our colors) whose history beyond the 64 NFL Championship and the greatest of all time Jim Brown is one only of suffering: the Drive, the Fumble and Red Right 88 to start.
The Browns could just model their modern stuff on the '64 championship gear and I'd be more than happy with that. They don't need to be Oregon.

The limitation of disourse in the modern classroom/lab/campus and the primacy of "offense" and politicization versus dialogue is the most serious concern in academia today.

Seems like what you're saying is more like if "you don't like this country in the same way that *I* or those that *I* agree with in *my* own socio-cultural and political worldview/values then you should leave".
Thematically, this somewhat rigid view of "liking" school, movie, nation dseems quite inconsistent with the historical American narrative. Just saying.

Yeah, in Philly maybe.
State College and area you might as well be in the middle of nowhere. They have cable tv and internet though...

Says a guy with a Wings photo in his profile. Toronto can offer him money, term and control. If Shanahan is willing to move Nonis and give Babcock personnel control this is a very different situation for him. I do not think he would come to Toronto in a million years for anything less than huge money, term and total personnel control.
The current state of the Leafs roster is, evidently, terrible but control and money might inform a different set of decisions for Babcock. That's not delusion, it's fact. Of course the Toronto media is focused on hockey; despite the brutal nature of the Leafs for a thousand years the passion of that fanbase is unmatched. I'm old enough to have lived in Windsor in the 80's and recall the 80's and early 90's Wings teams (see Larson, Reed) and the very empty Tampa like JLA. Those teams, and the Wings in general, were as bad as this generation of the Leafs. I find the arrogance of Wings fans of the current era kind of amusing given this parallel.
Bottom line, if Babcock were to come to Toronto and win he'd be sainted. He can't ever achieve anything like that in Detroit. I think he probably doesn't go to Toronto but he'd have compelling reasons to think about it.
|1 week 2 days ago||Heh.||
Take off your Wings fan glasses. If people think Toronto won't be a realistic option or a serious factor in this thing then they are delusional. Toronto can offer roster control (by eliminating Dave Nonis) which Babcock won't ever get with Detroit and they have the ability to pay him ridiciulous amounts of money with term (neither Pittsburgh or Edmonton have these types of resources). Is that the right move? Hard to say. On the other hand, the guy who actually wins consistently with the Leafs will be sainted like a combination of Bo/Return of Harbaugh (only more sainted and twice as beloved).

|1 week 5 days ago||Three Star Mafia||
Group of fans convinced with a religious fervor that Michigan should get "all the five stars".
|1 week 5 days ago||You're missing something.||
A couple things, actually. You said it yourself "great evaluator of talent"...it's funny that the opposite of your take here was often a criticism of Hoke's recruiting: "he gets 4 and 5 stars who play like 3 stars". That and the criticism about not developing talent.
Harbaugh has Hoke's 4 and 5 star classes and a record of developing NFL talent. It will be interesting to see how he makes that talent develop. He has a record of having a good eye for talent and building programs. Obviously, Michigan has offered a high volume of 4 star players in the current cycle. I'm not totally a "trust the coaches" guy but Harbaugh has a lot more credibility than any board poster or, god help me, Trieu, Wiltfong, Webb et al. in talent evaluation. It's not like "oh noes we don't have any talent...".
Complicating matters, as high profile and great as the Harbaugh hire has been...Michigan football has been crappy for almost a decade. Kids were young when Lloyd was relevant in 06 and tOSU just won a National Championship. I'd say slow your roll on expectations until Harbaugh wins 9 or 10 games next fall....
Don't be that three star mafia guy.

New guys (6/02/14) probably have less credibility discussing how things are "messed up" on the MGoBlogs. You've just become "trusted" for heaven's sake...108 points beyond being "douchey".
Also, first rule is invariably going to get you the neg party. Live and learn. Live and learn.

Didn' t United just sign a deal with Adidas at 75 mil BP replacing their Nike deal.
I think Nike is in talks with my beloved Manchester City tho...

Sent to prison?
Sadly, this sort of behavior would get him the first game of the year off in East Lansing and the starting job thereafter...
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Hmmmmmm....||
I think if Babcock wasn't going to Toronto he might mention it in the media? Or just sign the extension offered by the Wings...lot of money on that table.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Can't we all just get along?||
I think we can all agree there is one Michigan Legend jersey with a name on the back that anyone would be proud to wear.

Temple got screwed.
31 RPI, quality win over Kansas (by 25) and only 2 bad losses.
Power 5 bias is a joke.

Now I notic @jmdblue has revised on his doctor legitness criteria.
Serves me and my righteous indignation right for posting before reading 50 comments on doc legitimacy.
I stand by the "complete f'n grind" bit and wholly respect anyone who has the capacity to complete their doctoral degree in anything.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||Jeebus. @jmdblue||
The moment you say "no disrespect to those other professions" you completely disrespect all those other professions while wholly ignoring their capacity and the complete f'n grind it is to complete a doctorate.
Nonetheless, I'll still be pleased to be "Dr. clarkiefromcanada" (scientist type doctor and faculty member)
I won't be taking care of a whole person any time soon but presumably my scientific contributions might just add up to "doctor".
