Domino's is (734) 332-1111. Someone send over about six pizzas. Will six cover it? Better go seven to be sure.

And I see your point.
The way that many arguments have been framed against John Harbaugh here is that there are many more responsibilities for a coach in college than there are in the NFL. I would mostly agree with that. What it comes down to (in my view at least) is what the risk/reward is of giving someone like him a shot versus keeping Brady Hoke around - someone who has to this point not succeeded on the field (or because of his AD, not been put in a position to succeed).
Is a Super-Bowl winning coach less qualified than a sub-.500 MAC and Mountain West coach? Is the Mountain West a different monster than the Big Ten?
Michigan has a lot of resources to hire almost whoever they want to coach the team and I'd rather take the chance, if he was open to listening to us.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Yes||
Thank god that a decent, Super Bowl-winning football coach turned us down before we offered the job. He isn't good enough to coach at Michigan.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Yes Brady Hoke is preferable||
Yes Brady Hoke is preferable to the Harbaugh who won a Super Bowl but NOT the Harbaugh who did some stuff at Stanford. Got it.

How did that work for Jim Mora at UCLA? No college coaching experience apart from being a GA. I think we would all take those results on the field, along with his currently fundraising for a new football performance center.
After his first stint in the NFL, Pete Carroll came back to run USC with only assistant coaching experience in college and yeah.
Even Bill Walsh came from the NFL to Stanford.
I don't think this argument is valid. Or at least as big of a deal as you think.

Hire Kyle Flood.

Don't bitch, don't talk, just lace up the shoes and beat the shit out of State! I love this team! Now if Hoke can get his team to play like this all will be right in the world!

Cleveland.com also reporting that Pettine to be fired in a day or two.

What can you say? It was a good season for them. Narduzzi has built a great defense.
As I live in Ohio, my social media is already filled with people begging that someone (mostly Fickell or Herman) be fired.

More of a factual statement than a prediction.

I don't think he will start personally, but if he did, it wouldn't surprise me. It has been an offense based on gimmicks for three years and this would be yet another one.

All of your Scandinavian offensive linemen belong to us!

If I'm not winning the game, I will change the rules until I am.
|44 weeks 2 days ago||My biggest fear||
My biggest fear is that OSU continues their run and, now that they will be in our division, they stake a claim to the Championship game every season because we can't coach our players up. Maybe it's the pessimism of this season, but I don't see how we compete for a B1G title in the near future. Something must change with this staff - these players are not in a position to succeed.

My brother and I were walking around the athletic campus last Saturday looking at some of the renovations and we ended up cutting across the parking lot next to Schembechler Hall. Coach Funk's reserved parking space was empty. The joke that we made was almost too easy.

|50 weeks 1 day ago||What makes me uncomfortable||
What makes me uncomfortable is how often Hoke deflected the blame for the offensive line on them not playing consistently, their youth, their [lack of or incorrect] preparation and he put little-to-no-blame on the offensive coaching staff.
And I hate to say it but Drew Sharp's question about Hoke wanting his team to play a certain way but it not working was, I think, the best question. Fort Schembechler won't provide any answers but, with the way they're playing, it's time to ask the questions.
|1 year 1 week ago||Well||
In all seriousness, 8 points per game seemed like an awfully high average to constitute a legit tanking of the season.

Oberlin is in the midst of a $250 million campaign - the largest in the school's history. I've heard that he still loves Ann Arbor and UM.

There seems to be a lot of excitement around the game. I was talking with a fellow passenger (in their Bama shirt) and he expects Saban to be prepared. He thought Manziel's ability to scramble might get them a TD or two but he thinks Bama's defense will contain him enough for their offense to go to work.
Dynamite drop-in Monty, I know, but I felt like I needed to report from the trenches.

Sports Illustrated must be pissed that their "major" stories involving the NCAA (Emmert; Miami; Oregon, mostly; this) never seem to go anywhere.

Shout-out to Gibbons, who has become a very reliable kicker no matter the opponent.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||I guess I'm not clear||
I guess I'm not clear on why this signals a negative/whistleblowing story about Alabama. I will be happy to eat crow if it turns out to be anything of true substance but methinks he is just drumming up interest in SI readers in something ultimately inconsequential.

This will give us an advantage.

|1 year 29 weeks ago||The only reasonable explanation||
The only reasonable explanation for this loss is that there weren't enough threads devoted to getting the word out.
