|10 hours 33 min ago||Go have a nice cold glass of skim milk then||
Maybe on some Cheerios or Sugar Pops
|12 hours 17 min ago||Accepted to LSA today pretty pumped||
Are you MGoLegal? This is a drinking thread.
When I was 18, the drinking age in Michigan was 18. That didn't suck.
|12 hours 26 min ago||...Dirty Martini w/Blue Cheese Olives||
Doing the same thing right now. Never had Tito's, though.
|12 hours 29 min ago||I may join him the next time he decides to piss on the floor.||
LOL been there in both ways
|12 hours 31 min ago||Drinking an Absolut Peppar martini right now||
but earlier this afternoon I picked up a bottle of Ron Swanson's Nectar of the Gods.
|12 hours 34 min ago||Celebrating becoming a dissertator||
Does that mean it's written, submitted, accepted, and you have your Ph.D.?
|13 hours 46 min ago||Looking forward to seeing||
Coach Miles doing his weird clapping thing on the Michigan sidelines.
|14 hours 42 min ago||These stories are coming from somewhere,||
I believe this is the source for most of what we read and hear.
|16 hours 21 min ago||The irony would be absolutely delicious||
If the guy who roasted UM over its supposed practice of discouraging football players from taking demanding courses while touting Stanford's rigorous academic standards would then refuse to come to his alma mater because he was afraid it was going to be too stringent about admissions standards.
Introducing the J. Ira and Nicki Harris University of Michigan Head Football Coach: Les Miles.
|17 hours 18 min ago||It's not a fever||
You've got a severe case of antibiotic-resistant flesh- and brain-eating disease.
Sorry, Les Miles won't be able to help.
|17 hours 28 min ago||we have serious confirmation bias.||
Otherwise known as the MGoMentalMasturbation Festival. If there's no happy ending there will be a gigantic collective case of MGoMentalBlueBalls.
|18 hours 13 min ago||If you're going to send him a tie||
For God's sake, don't send him this ugly piece of dreck:
|20 hours 30 min ago||Sam is doing no backpedaling||
From everything I've heard the last several days, he has said that he doesn't know—nor does anybody else outside the concerned parties—what the length of the supposed contract offer is. If he initially suggested a time span and I missed it, my bad, but he's been consistently saying all this week that the length isn't known.
|20 hours 55 min ago||It's $49 million over three years||
but the catch is that Harbaugh has to clean the stadium himself and take care of recycling the empty water bottles. Plus empty the wastebaskets and polish the floors in Schembechler Hall.
|22 hours 49 min ago||Bullshit||
There isn't a particle of "information" in any of this. Negbangs for everybody connected.
|22 hours 54 min ago||Shut Your whore mouth.||
That's purty whore mouth, buster.
|1 day 7 hours ago||he believes it is going to happen. That makes me optimistic||
Are you kidding? If BC is bullish on something, I'm selling, not buying.
|1 day 7 hours ago||The greater the number of these fawning, idolatrous posts||
The greater the likelihood that Les Miles will be leading the team in spring practice.
Yes, there is a cause and effect. The universe is a strange place.
|1 day 7 hours ago||A good buddy of mine was in Sunday School with him||
Said he was kind of an arrogant tool, with a sycophantic posse laughing at all his jokes.
|1 day 12 hours ago||Does anyone know ANYTHING?|
|1 day 13 hours ago||we can feel secure that our football team has very bright future|
|1 day 15 hours ago||Who is his favorite MGoBlog personality?||
I'm pretty sure it's this guy:
|1 day 16 hours ago||It could be this||
"I used to stare down at that field as I was stenciling those numbers," Harbaugh told reporters, athletes and others who crowded into the Arrillaga Family Sports Center's Kissick Auditorium. "I so very badly wanted to go to Stanford and play for the Cardinal. … This was my number-one choice all along."
|1 day 17 hours ago||you're the most pessimistic poster on this site.||
Hey, don't I get at least an Honorable Mention?
|1 day 17 hours ago||Mmmmmm... did you say "Meat?"|
|1 day 17 hours ago||I'm looking forward to driving the team Greyhound bus||
on those trips to Nebraska, Rutgers, and Maryland. Like I said, taking a dump in a Greyhound bus toilet is an experience in luxurious defecation with an iPad in your lap.
|1 day 17 hours ago||UM and Harbaugh's agent hammered out over some meetings or phone||
UM asked very early on, "How much money would it take to get you here?" and the Harbaugh response was "All of it."
|1 day 17 hours ago||the enormous tax difference being paid in MI vs. CA||
Yes, thank God we have a lower tax rate in Michigan so we can afford to fix our fucking broken suspensions and replace bent wheels from the goddamn gigantic potholes on Michigan roads.
|1 day 19 hours ago||This likely won't come down to money.||
But this gigantic offer suggests it already HAS come down to money.
It's completely implausible to think that Michigan didn't reach out to the Harbaugh family immediately after Hoke was let go, given the relationship that Hackett and many other alumni players have with Jack Harbaugh, who would logically be the early, off-the-record informal conduit of information between Michigan and Jim. It would have been coaching search malpractice to not take advantage of those relationships.
It's also implausible to think that Hackett just pulled this offer out of thin air, thinking, "Gee, I guess I should offer more than Saban is getting." It's implausible to think a guy with his experience didn't essentially ask, in so many words, "what would it take to get you to consider coming to Ann Arbor?" And I believe that the early answer from the Harbaughs was essentially "Open up the bank vault, pal, then we can talk."
Yes, this will come down to Harbaugh's personal goals and emotions... about whether $8 (or $6 or $7) million per year is enough to come back to college.
