|2 days 6 hours ago||So basically||
Cam Newton is who everyone though he was?
|4 days 5 hours ago||Can they just stop things||
and fire the replay official mid-game?
|5 days 1 hour ago||Very good coach||
But there is no question his recent recruiting misses have hurt the program.
Couple that with some really bad injury luck and you have some less than stellar years.
That being said, he's not on the hot-seat. He's essentially in the running for being one of the most successful basketball coaches in Michigan history. If he had pulled of the title game win a few years back, he'd have a strong case for it.
I think it is fine for people to want and expect more from the program, but the idea that Beilein is going anywhere is not something that is going to happen.
|6 days 11 hours ago||One big difference||
Michigan is PAYING Harbaugh. Sure someone else might offer him a bit more, but he's already making 5 million a year. Bo was making peanuts here in comparison when A&M offered him the big bucks.
Once you are making that kind of $$$, the thing you can't buy is happiness. If coaching at Michigan makes him happy, the money he is making is plenty enough to keep him satisfied IMO.
|6 days 12 hours ago||At one point||
during the earler years of the sport I'm pretty sure Mirra was considered the absolute best. Dunno if that has held up over the years or not.
|1 week 11 hours ago||That smells like Harbaugh to me||
This is Harbaugh firing a warning shot at the rest of college football.
"You try to buy one of our recruits off? We're not just gonna sit and take it--we're going to make you a national story. We don't care what bridges we burn to do it either."
Maybe some people don't like it and would rather we keep our mouths shut. I say screw it. If we are committed to running a clean program then we have to fight back against the bastard cheaters somehow. We aren't going to stop them from paying players, but if they know that trying to steal a Michigan recruit with cash is going to get crazy Harbaugh out on the National News outing them to the press, they might think twice about just who they are going to offer their bags of cash to.
Silence is their friend. They count on the fact that no one is crazy enough to call them on their shit. Well, now maybe someone IS.
We're never going to compete for the kids looking for bags of cash to begin with. So the message here is, you can have those kids. Stay the F*** away from OUR kids.
|1 week 13 hours ago||Harbaugh got his NFL fix||
Yeah, he didn't WIN the Super Bowl, but he got there. That is more than most coaches ever do. And he also learned what a bullshit system it can be, where coaches can be considered throw-away pieces at the whim of an egomaniacial owner.
He's in the perfect situation now. The school loves him. The fans love him. All he has to do is win football games and not f*** up and he can coach forever, be a media rock star and basically retire as a hero while collecting a billion dollars along the way. About the ONLY reason I could see him leaving is if he decides he HAS to try to go with that Super Bowl. My personal feeling is that it's not worth it, but I am extremely biased.

Unfortunatelly it wouldn't surprise me if Dabo is a cheater. He likes to play the "aw-shucks good-ol-boy" personality card, but I'm not totally buying it.
|1 week 13 hours ago||Well||
Clemson is actually ACC
|1 week 1 day ago||Talk about exceeding expectations||
I don't know what I expected when I listened to that, but it was a billion times better than anything I could have imagined. Who knew Rick Neuheisel had that in him?
|1 week 2 days ago||In 2016||
it is very hard to cut through all the noise and get noticed. Harbaugh manages to do that, on a continual basis. He wants Michigan football to be on high-school football kid's minds ALL THE TIME, all over the country, and that is what he is accomplishing.
Part of that is going to have to be winning games, but he is using his own cult of personality to rachet up the Q-factor around the program. He may be a disciple of Bo, but he is not stuck in the past. Bo would never have done all this crazy stuff Harbaugh has done.
The great ones learn from the past and apply it to today's rules. They don't try to live in the past.
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||Seems likely to me||
that he was so out of it that he thought he was hitting another player. I don't know that it was unintentional, but I don't know that he meant to hit a REF. I think he meant to hit whoever was coming at him and maybe didn't realize it was a ref.
I don't get why he was allowed back on the ice. Seemed to be clearly out of it.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Have to at least give him a shot if he wants it I would think||
I don't know what he WANTS to play, but based on that video, the kid had some serious offensive skills. Great lateral quickness, good speed, hard to tackle, and can catch passes.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Watching that senior highlight tape||
Is there a reason teams don't want this guy at RB? He seems to have tons of lateral quickness, good speed, is hard to tackle, and can catch passes too.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Dunno if this has been mentioned|
|2 weeks 2 days ago||You know who doesn't ever make mistakes?||
People who never try anything new. And even they screw up more often than they will admit.
People who innovate and push the system make mistakes. And if they are good, they learn from their mistakes and fix things. Harbaugh in an innovater. He tries new things and is always pushing to get better. Yeah, there were some missteps here. Unfortunate. But that happens when you are pushing the envelope.
Hopefully he will learn from his mistakes and will get better. I'm pretty sure he will.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||It really depends on what Harbaugh told the kid||
Obviously if Harbaugh is still telling him 50/50 then Michigan would still take him depending on how the chips fall with some of hte big guns on NSD.
The reality is, if you want to be in on these guys on the last day, SOMEONE has to be the expendable backup plan. I don't blame Weaver one bit for not wanting to be that someone. But the other option is to fill up on lesser guys and not take a shot at the big boys.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||No, he means AFRICAN, as in native Africans||
Both Chesson and Darboh were actually born IN AFRICA.
Chesson is from Liberia and Darboh is from Sierra Leone
Chesson came to the US very young but Darboh didn't come to the US until he was 7.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah it was a Star Wars movie||
But every Star Wars movie does not have to involve a teenage orphan left on a desert planet who is an unnaturally good pilot who then finds secret plans stored in a lost droid of the Rebellion who is running from the Empire who then ends up on a Death Star with an older mentor who is killed by the masked enemy leader who dresses all in black.
Was the movie well done? Yeah. But it was a complete rehash of the original Star Wars movies to an embarrassing (IMO) degree. Hopefully future movies will ditch all of the copycat crap and actually try to tell an interesting story.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Defense wasn't expecting that pass||
Hindsight says they probably should have gone full-court zone with the ability to front/double Teske since with that little time left he was the only threat for anything better than a half-court heave.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||It is hard||
to find a superstar athlete who has done absolutely nothing wrong in his personal life who has managed to make himself as unlikeable as LeBron.
First he bails on Cleveland to go make his super-team in Miami and doesn't understand why people don't like that. Then he bails on Miami to go back to Cleveland because he doesn't like being not liked. Now he's run his coach out of town and replaced him with a guy who has never coached a day in his life.
LeBron is a great basketball player. But man, he is easy to root against.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||The fact||
that they are so aggressively telling you that this decision had nothing to do with LeBron tells you that had EVERYTHING to do with LeBron. But of course, they have to try and take all of the heat off of LeBron because he doesn't like being viewed negatively.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Pretty sure||
that has never happened before!!
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah but||
I sure hope that camera is on a tripod, because otherwise the camera guy should be bookin' it too.....
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Tom Cruise||
may have a creepy personal life, but he is an incredible actor.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||How is the pitching better in the AL?||
Players are the same in both leagues.
NL pitchers don't have to pitch to a DH, so they have it EASIER. A pitcher's ERA almost always goes up when he changes leagues due to this fact. But the general pitching is no better or worse in either league.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Dunno about the Royals||
They won despite having bad starting pitching (12th in the AL), and it could be even worse this season. I don't know if you they can pull off that trick 2 years in a row. They covered for their starters by having the 2nd best bullpen in all of baseball. Maybe they can pull that off again, I dunno.
Big problem for the Tigers was, they were dead LAST in the AL in starting pitching, and by a LOT. And their bullpen was 2nd worst as well. Not a good combo.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Better than what we were going to have||
We weren't going to platoon our way to a 800 OPS in LF, which Upton puts up every year. Tigers just filled their biggest hole.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Yes||
Rick Rhoden did in 1988. You can thank Billy Martin for that.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I'm going to go out on a limb||
and wager that Bill James may have put more research into baseball than you have.
