Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.

As do I, incidentally.
I'd be interested to tab everything that people are saying now and come back to it five or ten years down the road and see how it compares. I wonder if he'll continue to be the lovable loon, or if he pushes a little bit too far and the perception turns against him.
|2 days 44 min ago||That was snarky and funny||
Really wasn't expecting that from ESPN.
|5 days 13 hours ago||It's a push||
Montana had already won two Super Bowls before getting Jerry Rice, Brady had already won three before getting Moss or Gronk. Montana had the absence of the salary cap and a host of Hall-of-Famers around him, Brady had Belichick and Ernie Adams and all the power of that coaching staff. Not to mention Adam Vinatieri's golden foot.
Tl;dr - can't go wrong with either one of them.

Verified AMAs are another.
|1 week 20 hours ago||Get me in the loop||
What's NFL Confidential?
|1 week 1 day ago||Pretty sure they do.||
A bag man mentioned that point on a Reddit AMA.
Denard and Devin were quoted in Endzone as having done it clean though, so that's good.
|1 week 1 day ago||Unanimous #1?||
Holy shit. Didn't even know that was a thing.
I kinda figured something big had happened when the MGoServers suddenly went nuclear.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||The hell, man||
That paints him in a rather unfair light. Try to be at least a little unbiased.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Nice for Lloyd||
I am still confused as to why exactly they need an official committee, though.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Shouldn't be a problem||
We'll just give Peppers #1
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Obligatory, as usual|

YOU ARE TRULY A GOBLIN
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I remember it playing after the 1998 Rose Bowl.||
National Champions, hail to the victors valiant. Didn't get better than that.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||I thought we'd beat Ohio State||
The great Michigan coaches in the past all beat Ohio State in their first year, but usually lost to Michigan State, for reasons unexplained. I thought Harbaugh would continue that trend. :(
|5 weeks 5 days ago||I'm trying really hard to find the quote||
Over the summer in a prediction thread a bunch of people were predicting 7 or 8 wins, and I said something like, "You all are crazy. There's way too much talent on this team. Harbaugh will probably surprise everyone. I'd be stunned if we wound up with less than 10 wins."
I also thought there was no way we'd lose to both MSU and OSU, so I wasn't completely right.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||It says "see below"||
but I see nothing and I'm still confused. :(
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Well.||
Actually, pretty recently. As recently as the second game of 2013. And there was a point in the first or second quarter when Houma had a carry about which the announcer said, "Now, there's something you didn't see under the previous regime!" I remember the exact same thing being said during UTL when Hopkins had a pass thrown his way.
Not to discount anything Harbaugh's done, but just because everything's trending positive now doesn't mean that everything in previous years was negative.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||Oh yeah.|
|6 weeks 13 hours ago||It was sweet to watch Sparty getting blown out||
but can we take a moment to appreciate Dantonio walking out of the pregame interview? I laughed so hard. Dude gives zero fucks.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||That's funny||
With everything you hear about how dirty every big-time program in every sport is, I'm kinda surprised that Michigan basketball is the same way. Pleased, because I love John Belein, but surprised.
Also, "white boy basketball" - rofl my fucking lmao.

All a "spread" means is spreading a number of players over a large area of the field, and then getting your players to operate in space. The Patriots run a spread. Lions do too. Bama runs more of a spread than you might think. Their linemen's blocking assignments are pretty heavily zone-based, I believe.
So, yes. They exist.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Condescending jokes are in that category.||
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Shame. I always liked Joey Harrington.||
He's the Lions QB of my childhood. I didn't understand all the behind-the-scenes stuff that was going on back then, but he's who I remember when I think about my Lions growing up.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||I'm assuming running the ball won't be a problem in the future.||
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Holy shit, what?||
That's crazy. Glad he'll be okay.
|9 weeks 30 min ago||Debacle? Nah.||
A debacle would be losing your last game by thirty and then finding out that your star player's dead girlfriend didn't exist.
And then having your starting quarterback suspended the season for cheating on a test.
That would be a start.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||No consensus All-Americans for us, then||
Three All-Americans is nothing to sneeze at, though. Not when you think about how many players there really are in FBS.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||If alternates are to happen||
then they should happen with a low-profile game. That way it's just trying on a new look, and if it doesn't work, well, nobody cared about the game to begin with, so no harm done.
The big games should stay traditional, end of story.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||And the time before that||
