"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."

However I didn't get a chance to partake. I got there just a couple minutes before the "start" time. However he was a bit late in starting.

All you can eat pizza like on Tuesday's... oh yeah!
Belgian Waffle's Bursley Cafeteria. Those machines were like 50 years old in the 90's, but they were the bomb. Nothing better than make your own waffles the size of plates!

I found it interesting when Channel 8, whose Sports Director is Jack Doles spent almost 1 minute of the sportscast on it during the 6 o'clock news. Of course of interest is that Tommy Doles is a Northwestern Football Player... hmmmm.. I certainly hope that Mr. Doles spends as much time on other schools secondary violations. Hell didn't OSU have like 24 self reported in 2014.. OMG.. burn it with fire.

I was lucky enough to see him at a convention in Dearborn. Later that day he performed the world premier of Spock vs. Q with John deLancie. What a great memory. It's awfully dusty in this room at the moment.

Bursley 2nd Hamilton: Home of the Human Pile: 1988-1990
1. The human piles... some deserving gentleman would get human piled on random occasions.
2. The Bat: A bat came flying in and for some reason one of the hall mates had a cricket bat and went to town.. Good swing!
3. The wired glass: One gentleman in a drunken stupor decided to punch through the security glass on the door at the end of the hall. Awesome results! He made it through, pulling back he left a bunch of skin behind.
4. The night the 2nd year when the hall above decided to turn on the water hose.
5. Winning the 89 Basketball Championship and watching on Frank's TV in his room on the stolen cable!
6. Moon sleeping the night away in the restroom. Waking up Sunday morning to see him sleeping there, not knowing what had went on the night before. The green colored liquid he vomited did eventually come out of the carpet! Constantly putting Moon slept here signs.
7. Hall Hockey, with Raja playing goal without a cup. (Okay Engineers aren't always the sharpest guys, but he had an awesome Green 64 or 67 Mustang!)
I loved the dorms!
PS: My nickname was T-bird.. long story, but since I named names I figured I should include mine.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||I think the following||
All have had significant work around athletics, meeting people, making contacts. I think if Hackett has had time to do anything it has only been around Michigan athletics. The bama guy has never left college athletics. Playing football as a backup 40 years ago is meaningless.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||interesting examples of other major AD experience||
ND Swarbrick, experience, Member Indiana sports commission: 1992 to 2001, consultant and executive in collegiate and Olympic sports industries.
USC Haden, Nfl player, NFL broadcaster, from 1980 to 2008, rhodes scholar, laywer, etc.
Alabama, Bill Battle, Experience; Head football coach Tennessee, founded the collegiate licensing company, returned to Alabama.
MSU, Hollis, 25 years of athletic dept. experience, at Pitt and in WAC and MSU
Texas, Steve Patterson; Experience, team president and gm Portland Trailblazers, SVP, Houston Texans, president and gm, Houston Aeros, Gm Houston Rockets.
My point is that these were literally the first 5 I looked up. They all have serious athletic experience and ties.
|44 weeks 3 days ago||Why?||
Why do this now? Why not do an actual search? This seems to me to be a short sighted answer from a university president who has professed a lack of knowledge about athletics who probably thinks the issue is solved and he can move onto other things. I remember John U. Bacon mentioning that athletics is low on the list of items the university administration worries about, especially when it is making money and is clean. If they are going with Hackett, it seems that John U's take is right. Let's hope Hackett surprises many of us.

I remember my infinite joy when (pre-internet days) I pulled out my Total Baseball book, and looked up Archibald Graham and found the listing.
Still love that movie. Just such a perfect piece of joyous peaceful movie making. Nothing earth shattering, but I always feel better for watching it.

Man, I'm glad you felt good about the call. It came off as bad, and listening to him talk for almost 30 minutes prior to you getting on was some of the hardest sports talk I've ever had to suffer through. Man the dude is a complete neanderthal. So, while I like him as a color commentator, his takes as the lead just don't work.
|1 year 2 days ago||So you're saying there's a chance?||
What injuries? Only boo-boo's and death.. nothing in between...

Nope... no issues with his concussions... no impact whatsoever...
So Brandon says why do you hate michigan, and his kid goes there, and he's like Brandon is fine? OMG.... AHHHHHHHHHHHHH
|1 year 2 days ago||Ok, I used to think the sports talk in the area was bad...||
I can't wait to tune in the local folks here in Grand Rapids at 3... comparatively we're talking Einstein.
|1 year 2 days ago||They beat 2 teams...||
So from Dakich, if you can move Michigan down to the FCS, then we're good! Ok..

That was the single worst coaching decision I have seen from a michigan head football coach in my life. #firehokenow
