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

And hilarious too.

The very first thing under the tweet is topless women when I click on it.

People obviously shouldn't be disrespectful of the young man or of Coach Beilein. But should we fans never remark on the fact that recruiting has been disappointing and never point out potential weaknesses in a recruit's game? I'm honestly not sure where I think the line should be drawn.
I'll add that I would be very happy for Mr. Davis to prove that my doubts about him are ill-founded. And I wouldn't trade Coach Beilein for anyone.

Be VERY CAREFUL clicking on that link if you are at work.

...I've always been confused by this addition. His strength seems to be as a true post scorer, but is Michigan going to use him that way? They don't use anyone that way very often. And I think you have to wonder about his athleticism and whether his level of competition really shows him to be Big Ten ready.
John Beilein's socks are better talent evaluators than I am, so I'll defer to him. But I am confused.

...so he could bolster his presidential campaign by being able to say he slashed and never raised taxes. But I won't say who, because no politics.

It says a lot that one of Michigan's crucial players down the stretch is a guard who's averaging 6.8 points and 1.4 assists per game. I like Rahk. I appreciate Rahk. But you've just got to have more production at some point from your key guys.

You see his shooting ability and vertical and momentarily imagine him as a major contributor. But he often seems like he just doesn't see the game. Did he not play a lot of basketball growing up? I know who his dad is, but that doesn't necessarily mean he was shooting at a Nerf basket when he was three.

The poor guy looked haggard tonight. Maybe it was exasperation.

Nope, can't place the name.
|1 day 20 hours ago||I think they forgot who they are...||
...just like when they fired Glen Mason. Tubby Smith is a pretty damn good coach to have if you're the Gophers.

...it's the same for me. My ability to endure basketball anguish is used up right now.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Harbaugh and dodgeball||
I relate to that story. I was dubbed problematically competitive at about that age too. But what's the point of being a kid if you can't play tackle basketball or throw balls at each other's heads? My friends and I were having a great time.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Earlier reports said they mostly involve the previous staff||
Whether that's true and whether that matters as far as punishment is another story.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Drew Brees got smashed diving for a fumble too||
A play involving a fumble is probably the most dangerous non-special teams play in the game. Anything goes.
|2 days 18 hours ago||It's his leg!||
He could presumably feel it. Remember that he did go after the ball on the play a moment later. And he is hardly shy about exposing himself to hits most of the time. He runs more designed running plays than any other QB in the NFL as far as I know. He deserves more of the benefit of the doubt than many are giving him.
|2 days 18 hours ago||QBs slide and go out of bounds rather than...||
...getting the most yards. It's an extension of that thinking.
I'd want him to dive for the ball if I'm a Panther fan. I'm just saying it's not crazy.
He could dive for the ball and not get it and get hurt, dive and get it and get hurt, dive and get it and not get hurt, and dive and not get it and not get hurt. He only helps the Panthers win if he gets it and doesn't get hurt - that offense goes nowhere without him.
The chances of those four outcomes aren't equal, but they're all very real possibilities. The Broncos said they were ready to drill him, and he said his leg was at an awkward angle.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Makes some sense||
The Panthers aren't winning that game if he gets knocked out. I very much understand why people hold it against him for not diving for the ball, but that's not a crazy way of looking at things.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I hope we can all agree that we won't get to the...||
...bottom of this here.
I'm kidding. We won't agree to that. Everyone man your preconceived notions! There's an ill-informed argument to be won!
|2 days 21 hours ago||You can read minds and see into the future?||
|2 days 21 hours ago||I think you have to credit Irvin for playing...||
...so soon after surgery on his back. But the team could use some Novak-like toughness, no doubt.

I'm hoping for Danzig's "Mother" myself.

These guys own Florida.

Quit harshing our buzz, man.
|3 days 18 hours ago||A fair question||
The NCAA Tournament dates back to 1939. Michigan has made the Final Four one out of every eleven years. But it doesn't happen like clockwork. The 2013 trip to the Final Four was Michigan's first in 20 years - and it's first non-vacated trip in 24 years. And the 2012 Big Ten title was the first regular season crown in 26 years.
|3 days 20 hours ago||He's not Yost, but...||
...Beilein does have two of Michigan's nine Big Ten regular season titles since 1948 and one of their seven Final Four appearances ever. He's done pretty well.
|3 days 20 hours ago||It's apples and oranges, but...||
I see Jordan Morgan as a free safety who kept a defense from giving up six long TD passes per game. He was easy to take for granted when he was here.
|3 days 20 hours ago||I agree that the recruiting isn't luck, though...||
...it's worth noting that Michigan had the misfortune of having Shareef Abdur-Rahim be Jaylen Brown's mentor, which gave Cal a connection to a Georgia kid they otherwise wouldn't have had.
But yes, it mostly isn't luck. My only point is that Michigan has been close to adding some big time guys. Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, sure, but it's still important to realize that we're not that far away from things being different. To me that means that even recruiting - the bete noir of the staff - doesn't require a massive shake up.
|3 days 21 hours ago||oh yeah||
I blame the cold I have for forgetting Spike.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Excuses are like...blah blah blah...but...||
It's worth noting how bad Coach Beilein's luck as been and how close he's apparently come to some elite recruits.
He lost McGary forever to a positive marijuana test.
He's now lost about a season's worth of LeVert.
He lost a good chunk of a Walton season.
The Battle situation happened.
He apparently narrowly lost out on Jaylen Brown.
I'm as frustrated as anyone, but it's worth reflecting on how close Michigan has been to the last two years being very different.
