|1 week 12 hours ago||His stuff is pretty consistently excellent||
Texas grad, lives in AA.
|1 week 3 days ago||Alabama has LOTS of HS talent||
Just do a quick search of any recruiting database.
Plus Alabama over-signs and has an evil genius as its head coach.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||And against De'Anthony Thomas:||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Here he is vs. Manziel||

|2 weeks 6 days ago||Yeah, sorry about that||
Today it was made official. I hadn't seen the Bruce Feldman report of the changes to West Virginia's defensive staff. My bad.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I checked and you're right||
Bill confirmed in an email that he includes QB runs now but he's worked out a good way to separate them out. Gardner's conversion rate at 47% was almost double that of the RBs - Fitz was 29% and Green's was 25%. Ugh.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||QB runs are not included in these advanced stats||
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I know this is a joke, but:||
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I've always wanted to have the money||
to endow something at Michigan that isn't named after me -- like an academic chair named after one of my professors at Michigan that really shaped my career.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||And here they are:||
|3 weeks 3 days ago||It's common for all professorial positions||
for a named chair to be prestigious.
But individual faculty members aren't as individuals representatives of the University the way that high-profile administrators are (the president, the provost) or coaches. I think that's the reason for the negative reaction.
But it's becoming increasingly common and unavoidable. Better that our head coach is named after a donor than a corporation.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Apparently we can name State's football coach for 5 million||
We could start a Kickstarter. I suggest we name the position the 'Mike "Big Brother" Hart' head football coach at Michigan State University.

|3 weeks 6 days ago||I know someone who agrees with you||
"Not everybody is a perfect person in this world. I mean, everyone does ... kills people, murders people, steals from you, steals from me."
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly.||
There is a big difference between saying "He got what was coming to him" and "Marcus Smart should have pushed him."
If Texas Tech super fan goes to games and says awful things to players, he deserves his comeuppance. It doesn't mean that I'm personally going to take a swing at the guy or think that it's okay to do so.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Pointing lady is the worst of all||
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Damn do I hate hashtags||
I presume that Brian's point is that Michigan has a perception problem that is not going away about the extent of DB's involvement, and it is the perception that is the problem. The reality might also be a problem, but the point is that reporters keep asking.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||That picture of Denard, Devin and Will is pure awesome||
Three cheers for Bryan Fuller for that photo and his other fine work!
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Yes, and they can be criticized for it too||
I can be mean to my grandmother if I want, too. It doesn't mean that I should.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||...and he committed to USC||
|6 weeks 5 days ago||OT? Let's hope not.||
Rivals has him as a 5-star QB, #2 pro-style QB, #9 overall recruit.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Also no Michigan neck ties||
There's nary a fleck of maize or blue in this tie:
|7 weeks 2 days ago||I wondered||
if he was the son of Ray Van Dam, a history professor at the University of Michigan, but according to his MSU profile he's "son of Gary and Joan Van Dam . . . father Gary is the director of sales and marketing for the Motor City Bowl".
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Senior (13-14) stats from maxpreps:||
Kickoffs: 12 KO, 10 touch-backs
Punts: 10 punts, average 42.8, long 52
Field goals: 6 out of 8, long of 49
PATs: 6 out of 7

|8 weeks 3 days ago||Parks and Rec reference||
Jerry calls rappers "rappists" and Tom gets annoyed. (Internet reference)
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Sam Webb was a bit more restrained||
on GBW radio hour, but his point was basically the same. I was really surprised at the craziness of the callers, who seemed to think that Morris should start next year so that he wouldn't be "a year behind" in Nussmeier's system. I don't know what that means in the first place...
