All whites are incredible. Do not change back.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||It doesn't require much||
It doesn't require much "imagining" to come up with a worse task.
That time he had to manage DB / Shanecussion gate was probably a bit worse for him than "coach isn't talking right now."
|1 year 15 weeks ago||C'Mon Man||
That's obviously Lil Wayne not Wiz Khalifa. Dude has sold more records than Elvis. And Jack Kennedy opened for him. Embarrassing, or a somewhat offensive joke?
|1 year 22 weeks ago||There are plenty of alumni||
There are plenty of alumni myself included who are happy to bride that 4mil. Chump change for us, really.
Shouldn't be an issue.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||A right cracker in Auckland.||
A right cracker in Auckland. They've shed the ghosts of 92 at Eden Park, the Black Caps.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Because having a proven||
Because having a proven quarterback would be a potential gamechanger for this team, going a long way towards answering the single biggest question mark on the roster? Is that helpful?
|1 year 31 weeks ago||I have not seen any||
I have not seen any confirmation that he has joined the team. Have you?
|1 year 31 weeks ago||I would expect nothing on him||
I would expect nothing on him or Lyons until there's a clear green light from admissions. That sort of thing basically never happens for us. All of our 5th year tranfers generally turn out to be pipe dreams, once the admissions folk get to dream-killing.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||LOL @ Sweson getting the BBQ||
LOL @ Sweson getting the BBQ reinstated.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||All of it. Nike + Harbaugh||
All of it. Nike + Harbaugh and there's no stopping us. I really think they're worth about 1 point a game. Maybe 1.5.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Admissions: Admit this fine||
Admissions: Admit this fine student. Thanks in advance.
You can consider this a letter of recommendation.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Nike is the superior product.||
Nike is the superior product. We're costing ourselves dearly on the field and hardwood with critical footwear, selling our souls for Adidas cash. It's not worth it. Nike. Just do it, Hackett.
|1 year 37 weeks ago||Hold on. Can't let that go||
Hold on. Can't let that go unchecked.
Prety much every coach on every staff?
AKA the HC and the entire offiensive staff, unless I'm forgetting someone. Did any of them ever coach or play in the league in any capacity whatsoever? Please correct me if I'm way off here, but I don't believe that they did at all. I see Heck played in the arena league for a tiny bit...
|1 year 37 weeks ago||I think you are||
I think you are mis-remembering here on your entire premise.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||Their recruiting is||
Their recruiting is definitely up... They will start Malik McDowell and Lawrence Thomas on the DL next year - two 5 stars we were after.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||There's no way Jim will go to||
There's no way Jim will go to that meeting.
He has so many other attractive options: Meeting with his brother in Baltimore, meeting with Ty Wheatley at Red Robin. It makes no sense.
I'm told he will go to a big important meeting with his financial advisor, about tax returns now that it's January.
You guys are delusional to think he goes to this meeting.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||Please oh God let this be||
Please oh God let this be true.
The extra money is NOT worth it. I am completely convinced that Adidas vs. Nike is costing us wins on the field. In recruiting, and in PERFORMANCE of the athletes. Nike is top of the line. Best shoes, best clothes, you can perform much better in this gear, and feel much better too.
I would take several million less on a contract for the competetive advantage that is Nike.
Just look at this year's playoff: All Nike. Make this happen, Mark.

is BEGGING for Dicks. It's like an alley-oop.

WHO ARE YOU DICK BLOCKHAM!!
|4 years 5 weeks ago||And look who returns, via||
Got this in an email from a friend. I laughed.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||This story was stolen from||
This story was stolen from the Auburn Real Sports... I'm calling likely troll shenanigans.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Duped?||
I don't know who the original poster is from the "Academics" diary, but I have a hard time shaking the notion that it's a troll, trying to make Hoke look bad. He stole that line from teh Auburn Real Sports.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||To pull a "convenient" one on||
To pull a "convenient" one on a kid from a feeder school like Cass Tech would be... unadvisable, in my opinion. I think the coaches would see that angle - although of course we can't rule anything out. Hopefully a reporter will reach out to Teric for his story, now that he's off the squad.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||Bring Back the Fab Five shorts!||
I don't think I have enough points to start a thread, but we need to make this happen. Someone needs to do a peitition or something!
The Fab Five shorts were to me as a youngster as iconic and "Michigan" as the winged helmet. Those shorts were such an outrageous fashion statment at the time, that we absolutely flocked to and they still stand to this day.
|5 years 45 weeks ago||It goes into real time||
It goes into real time on/around Signing Day, IIRC. As new commits announce the classes rankings go up and down. IIRC they just plug in the Rivals Rating into their formula. It keeps going after signing day as well, in case of late commits from big prospects like a Terrell Pryor.

Death Roh crying?
LOL nice try buddy. Clearly your sister is drunk.
|6 years 35 weeks ago||How it works: There are three||
How it works:
There are three major competitions played at overlapping times throughout the year.
#1 is the Premiere League. These are the top 20 teams in England. Everyone plays everyone else twice, home and away. 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss.
#2 is the FA Cup. Basically every tiny football club in England gets to play in this single elimination, random draw tourney. Think Hoosiers. The small clubs have a chance (but dont usually win). The big boys get byes until the round of 64, IIRC. The finals are always played at Wembley, and the competition is played concurrently to the league.
#3 is the Champions League. Top few teams from each country get in this awesome big money tourney. Winner are declared champions of Europe. This has grown in importance wildly over the past few years. Also played simultaneously to the regular season
#4 is the Carling Cup AKA League cup. this is a single elim tourney, but only for the top 80 or so teams (the League, as they call the top competitions). This is pretty much an afterthought for most teams. It doesn't have the history and romance of the FA cup.
|6 years 35 weeks ago||I think above wins and losses||
I think above wins and losses is the direction of the program. Obviously, only a one game progression would yield a winning record and bowl game. If we miss our mark by one game again, you'd have to look at the bigger picture. You don't just can a guy who has only had two (really good) recruiting classes, who overhauled the entire scheme. He needs more time to build a program if you're gonna give him an honest chance to do things his way.
Of course, we'd love and NEED the Lloyd recruits to be major contributors this year. Rich is giving them every chance (Woolfork, Martin, Mouton, Ezeh, RVB, O-Linemen, Stonum, I could go on and on.) The problem is, our secondary is going to be scarily young, and Rich Rod was kind of screwed on this end, as with the QB situation.
Still, I don't like excuses, and I hope the head coach makes none, even if we all know what they might be. We'll re-assess after the season, but I'd lean to a year four almost no matter what.
