+1 for the lol sir.
|2 days 3 hours ago||I would think so. Things||
I would think so. Things often go wrong between "I've made up my mind" and actually finalizing a contract. Kinda like "will you marry me?" "YES!!!" "OK cool, now I just need you to look over and sign this prenup...."
|2 days 3 hours ago||Lol, I kept thinking that and||
Lol, I kept thinking that and had to keep reminding myself he was gone. Like waking up from a bad dream. Brandon has ruined the name Dave for me.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Who is the Dave that he's||
Who is the Dave that he's referring to?
|2 days 4 hours ago||I think you can accomplish||
I think you can accomplish the same thing by putting the honored or retired numbers on the suites. People will see them there and be reminded.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Darko was also the only one that fit a need||
Darko was also the only guy that fit a need for the Pistons and made any sense given the team makeup. They had Rip and Chauncey so they didn't need someone like Wade. They thought Prince was going to be good and so they didn't need Melo -- plus they had 6th man of the year Corliss Williamson off the bench, where was Melo going to get minutes?
What they needed was a good big man to compliment Wallace. The thinking was that Darko was more NBA ready than a beanpole like Bosh. With his reported nasty streak he and Wallace were going to create a defensive force. So they took Darko.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Not sure how much of the success was him||
I'm not sure how much of Dumars' success was him, and how much was John Hammond's. I used to be plugged into NBA circles a lot more than I am now, but I remember talking to a scout once who said Hammond was the brains of the operation. And if you look at the timeline, things went to shit right about the time Hammond left for the Bucks in 2008. The Pistons went from 59 wins to 39 wins and haven't had a winning season since.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Just looked over their roster||
I just looked over their roster and its unbelievably bad. They have Monroe and Drummond and that's it. Jennings is an average PG at best, KCP shouldn't even been in the league let alone a starting SG, and they just don't have a SF. I mean you could probably swap out their entire bench for guys you found at the local Lifetime Fitness or YMCA and wouldn't be much worse off.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Good info||
I forgot about the cap exploding mitigating some of the damage from this contract. So they really just take a beating this year when it doesn't matter and then with more cap room in the future its not that big of a deal. Really like the move now.
Now SVG just needs to find a warmed over corpse to play SG because Caldwell-Pope is a giant turd masquerading as an NBA player.
Can we refire Dumars? Can someone be so bad at something that you can unretire their jersey?
|2 days 11 hours ago||I like it but gotta wonder||
I like it but gotta wonder how bad this is going to screw up their cap for the next couple of years.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Its not leverage, but him or||
Its not leverage, but him or his agent leaking it lets NFL teams know where the floor is for an offer. i.e. if you want my client, you better be prepared to make him the highest paid coach in football.
|1 week 4 hours ago||That's what I think too||
That's pretty much what I think too. The leak of the offer is clearly a move by his agent to let Harbaugh's NFL suitors know what the floor is for negotiations. Seems like its the Raider or Jets. Oakland seems historically fucked up, but might ceed full control to Harbaugh. Salary + location + a top 5'ish pick to work with...that's kind of tempting.
For the Jets, they'll also be in that top 5 range in the draft, but if Harbaugh doesn't want to go to the Raiders, and its NYC or Ann Arbor, seems like Ann Arbor would be the choice. NYC is just as cold, its expensive, and its a pressure cooker there with the media.
Either way, its gonna be a long 2-3 weeks until we know.
|1 week 5 hours ago||Wonder if it doesn't scare some teams away||
I know its the NFL and they shit money, but $8M a year is a lot of dough. Wonder how many owners would be willing to double their current/former coaches' salary AND hand over control of the front office to Harbaugh. Oakland is paying $3M a year for Dennis Allen. In Chicago, Trestman makes $4.5M/yr. If Michigan is offering $8M/yr you're going to need to match or exceed that and figure out if you want to hand over a lot or all of Phil Emery's duties to Harbaugh. Some teams might just say fuck it and offer someone else $4-5M and keep the status quo in the front office.
|1 week 5 hours ago||$10M/yr||
I said months ago they should just offer him $10M a year. Make it impossible to say no. Looks like we're getting close to that point.
|1 week 6 hours ago||What if...|
|1 week 3 days ago||Boobies.||
|1 week 4 days ago||Oakland is likely moving in||
Oakland is likely moving in the next couple of years to LA. So he would be moving either way.
|1 week 4 days ago||He'll make more than 62 FBS head coaches||
According to Bruce Feldman, Muschamp will make more than 62 head coaches. Which is crazy. Worth it, but crazy.
|1 week 4 days ago||This was the first time since '07 ESPN broadcast it||
This was the first time since '07 ESPN broadcast the Iron Bowl, and CBS will most likely have the game again for the next several years. CBS normally has the game, but they opted to use their first pick on SEC games to broadcast that week on the Egg Bowl because at the time they had to pick games to broadcast, the Egg Bowl was looking like a top 5 matchup. ESPN lucked into the Iron Bowl being the best game of the week, and promoted it as such.
But you know, don't let facts get in the way of your ESPN hate.
|1 week 5 days ago||Really?||
You can't expect people in media to know the two deep on every pro and college team in the country AND know the background on those players to know if they are untapped potential or just bodies.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I'm confident Michigan fans||
I'm confident Michigan fans could spin any news as positive Harbuagh news these days. "Mudslides in California? Good news on the Harbaugh front, since Mrs. Harbaugh hates muddy feet."
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Think part of it may have||
Think part of it may have also come when people started to turn on the people who were his sources which caused him to get defensive and weird.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||It also helps identify who your leaks are||
It also helps identify who your leaks are. Tell one admin assistant that "Schiano and Addazio are rising up the board", tell another "Sean Payton is a possibility" and tell a third "Les Miles wil take the job if its offered." Real easy to find out who is leaking what to whom that way.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||It is||
Along with a slew of clickbait tweets, Sam also tweeted out a 4mo. membership will get you through the coaching search and signing day. Thanks, but no thanks dude.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||What about a bucket of hoes?||
What about a bucket of hoes? A box perhaps?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I'd take Schiano over Addazio||
I'd take Schiano over Addazio in a heart beat. At least Schiano has done something as a head coach.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Sam Webb is turning into a||
Sam Webb is turning into a clickbait whore. It's just rumor after rumor. Who the hell is even a source for him any more? The entire program has been cleaned out. Only one left would be DeBord and I doubt that.

Get better soon Ace. The MGoCommunity is behind you.
|3 weeks 1 hour ago||If there was actually an||
If there was actually an agreement signed it would also allow Harbaugh to build a staff that can get out and start recruiting while he finishes off the season. That would be huge and a true win-win for all involved.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Not to be a dick, but I||
Not to be a dick, but I honestly can't think of one thing to thank him for. What about the BBQ, was that Hoke or RichRod? If it's Hoke, thanks for that because that seems like a cool tradition.
