"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

|3 weeks 3 days ago||The musical theater||
The musical theater department actually sings this version of the song fairly regularly. I'm sure if you hunt around on youtube you'll be able to find it again.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||I'm going to have to disagree||
I'm going to have to disagree a bit on the GSI point. In my experience the large courses taugh by GSIs were limited to the first few semesters but once I got into upperclass work I was in smaller classes taught by professors. Even in the larger courses the professors made themselves available to people who took the initiative to go and talk to them.
Also I sometimes found the GSIs more interesting and helpful than the professors anyway.

In a perfect world I would prefer Nike but I don't think you can leave several million dollars on the table. We all want to keep advertising out of the stadium and see ticket prices go down but somewhere Michigan is going to have to make up the money.

I'm fairly sure that once he enrolls he is subject to all of the standard transfer rules

Ferentz must have some Fred Jackson level dirt on somebody in the Iowa athletic department.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Wow||
This is pretty stunning given how much Buffalo exceeded expectations this year. I've got to to think he's got another job lined up. If that's the case I've got to think he'll at least try to hold on to some of his assistants so we'll probably still have to offer Wheatley some sort of title bump in order to get him.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Totally agree||
All of this negativity is going to take years off your life folks.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||Wow||
I have never seen so many people so pissed off after getting what they want. Come on guys, we got our guy! Who cares what the NFL people say? A bunch of people complaining on a message board isn't going to change anybody's behavior. They were wrong, let's just move on.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||Oh Yeah!||
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Bells Winter White||
As far as I'm concerned it's the best thing about winter
|23 weeks 6 days ago||It seems like the only real||
It seems like the only real question is whether or not Mariotta will break the record for first place votes.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Houston||
I heard somewhere that they were going after him pretty hard. Sort of makes sense given his ties to Texas.
|24 weeks 1 day ago||Well I'll be studying all weekend||
But I'll be thinking of beaches.
|24 weeks 3 days ago||Yeah I'm sure the Notre Dame||
Yeah I'm sure the Notre Dame and Northwestern grads have no reason to have an axe to grind against Michigan.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Or||
He wants a new challenge/wants more money/is sick of OU fans complaining about him...I'm not saying I think it's likely to happen but his resume is better than all 3 of those guys so I don't think "he's scared" is the only reason he would leave.
|24 weeks 4 days ago||Bob Stoops||
If those rumors are real I would consider him just as good a candidate as Harbaugh.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||He beat Alabama in the Sugar||
He beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl less than a year ago
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Assuming for sake of argument||
Assuming for sake of argument that this is true 9 million has got to be salary + buyout. 9 million is more than any coach, NFL or College makes.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Possibly||
Though I would really like to avoid a situation like what happened at Nebraska where players lashed out partly because they heard the info second hand
|25 weeks 4 days ago||I believe Hoke meets with the||
I believe Hoke meets with the team at 3:00. I bet we don't hear anything until then.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||Florida is one of the best||
Florida is one of the best jobs in college football. A coach would be crazy not to seriously consider the job if offered.
|25 weeks 5 days ago||There have been a few||
There have been a few articles suggesting he might like to find a new job. Personally I wouldn't be surprised if it's just his agent spreading rumors in order to get more money out of Oklahoma.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||I think that depends on what you mean by "average"||
I would imagine most people who follow any given college or pro team closely know the name of the GM or AD given the influence that person has over the team.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||What Articles Call Him That?||
Besides official press releases? Nobody actually calles him by the full title, just like nobody calls Jim Hacket the Donald R. Sheppard Director of Athletics and nobody calls Pat Fitzgerald the Donald and Susan Jones Family Head Football Coach and nobody calls David Shaw the Bradford M. Freeman Director of Football.
The Athletic Department gets 10 million extra dollars they can use to pay Harbaugh or Mullen or whoever else they might be able to hire and in exchange the press releases get a little longer. In what world is this a bad thing?
|26 weeks 6 days ago||It's amazing how mugh these||
It's amazing how mugh these folks have been demonized for having the audacity to agree to help pay the coach's salary.
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Team Numbers||
A number of other teams have begun doing this as well, so I don't think the practice going anywhere anytime soon
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Very Cool||
Hopefully this is just the start of a lot of basketball to be played in this stadium (hint: Pistons)

|27 weeks 6 days ago||Maybe That was the Deciding Factor||
But the fact that the talks got as far as they did shows that they're at least willing to consider the possibility. Maybe Cleveland wasn't the right fit but someone who has totally ruled out the idea of moving across the country doesn't enter into negotations with an out of town employer.
