Ha, it's funny, I was just watching Star Trek: Nemesis last night, and when Tom Hardy's Picard clone character is talking about his childhood, he says that he got sent to the dilithium mines. My first thought was, "oh, like where Denard is from..."

Looking past the comedy of paying a former coach more than your more successful current coach for a moment, just what are those numbers associated with Weis's contract? Jesus, what was ND thinking when they put that thing together?

It's just interesting that it wasn't actually written by southerners. But I guess minstrel shows weren't restricted to the South.

He spent a good chunk of his professional career there. He wasn't shy about wanting to go back there to finish out his career.
No, they aren't contenders. But it's not the craziest pick.

According to Wikipedia, "Dixie" was most likely written by Ohioans. I had no idea.

I was actually kind of hoping he'd be making another Super Bowl run this coming season, maybe with the Broncos. They'd have a good shot, plus it'd be weird to see Peyton and Woodson on the same team.

They appeared to have updated it. I saw this posted somewhere on Twitter earlier (probably EDSBS or something), and the quote was attributed to "Unknown." Looks like someone got their hands on the Google.

How about that contract signing attire!

Are you besmirching the good name of Hugh Freeze?! A pox on thee!
|3 days 10 hours ago||Who's fat now, coach?!||
Does any one else remember that old "Countdown to Kickoff" interview with Gallon when he refers to himself as "that little fat kid." He tells some story about meeting Hecklinksi for the first time, and the coach saying something like "who's that little fat kid?" I've tried to find the video not that long ago, but wasn't able to track it down.

Fair enough. I was thinking more in general terms about recruiting, though. Like the weekly conference recruiting rankings here include ND, but really the vast majority of those players won't ever see significant time against Michigan.

It is a real bummer that we're entering the timeframe of the rivalry ending that ND recruiting really might not affecting UM at all (aside from losing head-to-heads).
|4 days 6 hours ago||Correct me if I'm wrong, but||
Correct me if I'm wrong, but can't schools not release students to the point of preventing that student from receiving a scholarship elsewhere? So, even if that student sits out a year, they still can't be on scholarship at another school? I seem to remember that being how Paterno kept Bolden at PSU despite his repeated attempts to leave. And as someone else in this thread pointed out, there's that kid stuck at FSU.
Then again, I don't know if LOIs are a different animal and/or if I'm completely misremembering Bolden's situation.

I feel like you might have an opinion of the Bad Boys, but I can't quite put on finger on what that opinion is.

Am I the only one here? Hello?
...in that case, goodbye pants.

I forgot how banged up Woolfolk was in this game (UTL). He's got a busted hand, a bum ankle, and I think he gets kicked in the face at some point. Also, I forgot how much ND really had this game seemingly under control but just could not build much of a lead. What a crazy series the UM-ND always is.

Goddamn, I am so excited to see what Denard can do in the NFL. (Rewatching UTL)

Gross. I'd file a police report if I were you.

Last Friday, my coworkers and I went out for some post-work drinks a place called the Flatiron Room that turned out to be a whiskey bar. The selection was enormous. I didn't even know how to approach the menu. So I stuck with some Woodford Reserve and Knob Creek (admittedly two of the least fancy whiskeys they offered). Given how much whiskey I drink, I should really educate myself about it more.

I'm rewatching UTL and it got me wondering, did JT Floyd end up signing as an UDFA with anyone?

I like the way you think. Just put the new UTL mgovideo upload on the TV. Sipping on a Beam and Coke (Zero), sitting with the cat.

Wasn't Indiana the team that already had a roster numbers problem?

I don't actually know. The guy's twitter feed doesn't mention Denard at all, even though he does call out Gabbert and some of the deeper back-ups.
|1 week 2 days ago||Given that there are only 32||
Given that there are only 32 NFL teams and significantly more than 32 college football programs, I think having even one starting QB in the league is pretty solid. Possibly two starters, if Gabbert shits the bed again. Henne has shown flashes of starter-material over the years. He's not going to lock anything down for any significant amount of time, but he's good enough to hold on to the job if Gabbert blows it.
|1 week 2 days ago||Just name him owner, already!||
I don't think they're reclassifying him, he just took some snaps at QB. They probably have some designed runs for him or something.

What was that? I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you over the sound of all this scoring.
