|1 day 18 hours ago||Especially when you consider||
Especially when you consider how much Mattison and Borges/Nuss were making. If I remember right, they were both paid around top 5-10'ish for coordinators. To go from there, and bump the whole pool up 25% or more is big.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Yeah, but given that Harbaugh||
Yeah, but given that Harbaugh will be making around $7M by 2017 or so, if an NFL wants to hire him away from Michigan, they'll have to be prepared to pay in that $7-8/yr range. So, something like a 5 year $40M deal. If they are prepared to pay that, then I don't think a $5-10M buyout on top of that would really scare them away.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Asst pool is pretty big too||
At $4-5M, the pool for his assistants is a good bit bigger than Hoke's was ($2.5-3.5M) and Hoke's OC and DC were some of the highest paid in CFB. Hoke's assistant pool also included S&C salary. Harbaugh's does not. That's pretty encouraging as well.
And given all of the escalators and bonuses, Harbaugh should be up in Saban territory ($7M/yr) within 2-3 seasons.
No pressure or anything Jim.
|1 day 21 hours ago||It made no sense||
Iverson was on the downside of his career too and was the opposite type of PG that the Pistons had success with. Joe D just had a massive hard on for Iverson (after coming very close to getting him earlier in his career) and couldn't resist. Chauncey actually had better stats in his final year with the Pistons than Iverson did in his first and only year.
Another thing here is that Chauncey and Rip were very close. Joe D traded Chauncey at the same time he resigned Rip to a longer deal, which pissed Rip off and made him more of a malcontent. And then in the following offseason, Joe D went and signed Ben Gordon to play the same damn positiion as Rip and also signed Charlie V. So he essentially traded away Chauncey for a redundant SG and a worthless PF. And they still didn't have a PG because he completely overestimated Stuckey's capabilities as a PG. Those moves killed their cap and flexibility for years.
It wasn't the Darko move or the Josh Smith move that killed the Pistons. It was the snowball effect created by trading Chauncey that killed the team.

Plus, those balls take a beating during the game getting crushed and squished constantly by very large men. I highly doubt that a ball that's filled at 12.5 psi will still be 12.5 psi after going through a game. I mean, they have to lose some air during the course of the game, which would also alter the final pressure.
|4 days 3 min ago||Me too||
Would like to see the math and science behind this. A simple "no" doesn't do anything for anyone. Seems like the perfect Sports Science segment. Like if you fill a ball to 12.5 psi inside a 70 degree room, and then go play with it outside in 40 degree weather for 4 hours, what PSI should you expect the ball to be at when you read the PSI back inside the 70 degree room after the game? Or even the next day depending on when they rechecked these balls.
I'd even like to see some variations on this. Like what if you filled the ball with 100 or 120 degree air?
|4 days 1 hour ago||That's something that I'm||
That's something that I'm wondering too. If they are measured indoors at a warm temp, what's a normal expectation for deflation when they are outside and cold? And if you bring them back inside after the game, what's a normal expectation for PSI loss during the course of the game? Feels like there's a lot of science missing in this whole thing.
|1 week 2 days ago||And questioned why everyone was making such a big deal about it||
And then questioned why everyone was making such a big deal about this. Well, you tweeted out "life changing decision at 3pm", changed it to 4pm, and held a press conference. What an asshole.
|1 week 2 days ago||Or the Pats or Saints||
I could see a team like the Pats or the Saints, or even Green Bay take a look at Jones. Stash him on the bench for a couple of years, develop him, and then he's ready if/when your starter decides to hang 'em up.
|1 week 2 days ago||I didn't say "any"||
I didn't say he didn't make any mistakes, I said he didn't make many. The fumble was bad, but he made a lot of good decisions and threw some great deep balls.
|1 week 2 days ago||Austin Powers||
Dr. Evil describing his upbringing:
“My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a 15-year-old French prostitute named Chloé with webbed feet. My father would womanize; he would drink; he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament…”
|1 week 2 days ago||What would another season really show?||
It is a bit crazy, but the three games he's played were three big time games, and two of those teams were really good. I mean, look at what he did vs Oregon's defense compared to what Jameis did. And Jameis is being touted as a top 10 type of QB. Jones didn't make many mistakes in any of the games, so would another season of games where he beats up on the Rutgers and Indianas of the world really show NFL types that much more?
He's excelled on the highest stages in CFB, and that's really all the NFL guys are looking for. Another season wouldn't do much to change that.
|1 week 2 days ago||That was Tuesday morning||
Yeah, that was on Tuesday. I was at that press conference and it was pretty interesting. Urban seemed a lot higher on Cardale's NFL future than Cardale was. Urban said his stock will likely never be higher. And Meyer said that he hadn't talked to Jones about the NFL at that point yet either.
So I'm guessing the two of them had a conversation shortly after, got some feedback from NFL types, and with all the uncertaintly about Ohio State's offense (don't forget they lost Herman too)...it just makes more sense to go pro even though he's only started three games.
|1 week 2 days ago||Jameis||
I think Jameis is Jamarcus 2.0. They have almost identical college stats and both have a penchant for off-field buggery.
|1 week 3 days ago||To be fair...||
To be fair, I changed my signature to that when after every single semi-negative comment I posted about Hoke was met with "BUT, BUT, BUT....BRADY HOKE IS THE FUCKING MAN, HOW DARE YOU SAY SOMETHING BAD!!!" I decided to just say fuck it, and go with that. Because despite mounds of evidence to the contrary people thought Hoke was awesome and shat roses.
So 1) I told y'all so, and 2) you're right. Its time to change it.
|1 week 3 days ago||Because anyone that is||
Because anyone that is looking for their third transfer is a head case. I don't want that at QB, and Harbaugh sure as shit won't want that.

|2 weeks 3 days ago||It was an interview||
People (Webb) are getting caught up in semantics here. Any time and any setting you are meeting with a potential employer -- whether its dinner, drinks, or a formal in-office setting, its an interview. They are getting a feel for you as a person. And frankly, going out to eat with someone is a lot better guage of how that person is going to be to work with than some formal interview.
For whatever reason Sam Weeb is getting caught up in saying "it wasn't an interview" but I call bullshit. That was an interview. Probably one of several Ty is going to have.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Character and will are two very different things||
I tend to think that we'll see a good amount of attrition over the next year. Hoke was good at recruiting a bunch of guys that seem to have good character (obvious guys problems aside), but I don't know how many guys that want to fight and compete we have on our roster. Dudes like Mike Martin or Molk or Hart. I feel like we have a lot of guys that are just content to be there -- especially on offense.

FSU has a major need at LB too. Probably doesn't bode to well for EJ that he couldn't stick in the rotation.

If two more OL left, it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.
I would imagine Michigan will see a Texas/Charlie Strong level of cleaning house in the coming months/year. The program is in need of a major culture change, and there's going to be a good amount of players that won't want to do it. Bosch won't be the last to get the "do it my way, or hit the highway" ultimatum from Harbaugh. To me, its better to clean out the "locker room lawyers" as it was put in Baumgardner's article even if it hurts you in the short term.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I liked Nick's comment on||
I liked Nick's comment on Twitter too: "If you're not a little bit scared of your coach, then there might be an issue. I think that happens inside Michigan's locker room soon." I think that was a large part of the problem under Hoke. Too much best buddy as the head coach, and not as much respected leader. You should like your head coach becaue he pushes you to be your best, not because he supports you no matter how much you slack off or fuck up.

Who knows if he was actually given the info. He's a young kid. He may have been told "I'm going to try and bring in Stanford SC's coach" and that got turned into "they're bringing in Turley"
