|6 hours 8 min ago||100% on Rudock||
He locked onto a reciever who was blanketed and made a throw he can't make. End of story. Doesn't mean it wasn't a great play, but when the DB is right on top of the receiver and ready to break like that, that is a dangerous throw.
|7 hours 18 min ago||Heres what I saw.||
I saw a team that, with some personnel upgrades at a few key positions, notably QB, RB & OL, would have been JUST FINE. And Harbaugh is going to get those personnel upgrades.
The defense played very well. The offensive scheme was just fine. We had LOTS of chances on offense, but Rudock didn't execute. Our RBs and OL didn't play overly well either. But those are 3 areas that Harbaugh will fix--you just have to give him some time. He needs to get the players coming in to fix things, but at least I think tonight you saw a good game plan that just wasn't completely executed.

It's like having the power of Michael Jordan actually INFUSED into your uniform.
Ok wait, no it's just a logo, sorry.
|19 hours 14 min ago||As bad as Dave Brandon was||
He is a freakin' PRO compared to the clowns that Rutgers hires to run their AD.

He's the NFL's Whore/Attorney

We did it! We landed on the moon! It's amazing!

Who the hell invited these clowns into the Big Ten?
|21 hours 47 min ago||The "reporters" covering the NFL||
are hardly more credible than Bagdad Bob.
|21 hours 48 min ago||Right||
Let's not let it get lost in this what a compete and utter piece of shit Ted Wells is. What a scumbag. He's the NFL's whore.
|21 hours 52 min ago||Yep||
Goodell is a f*&%ing tool in the EXACT mold of Dave Brandon. Actually I think Goodell is way worse than Brandon, honestly. Goodell has done utterly nothing positive for the NFL. At least Brandon did SOME good stuff here at Michigan.
|21 hours 55 min ago||Right||
Goodell now has a very consistent pattern of getting smacked down anytime his cases go to federal court. In fact, I think he has lost every time. As Franz said, that is why the NFL rushed to file this in New York, because they knew if the case went to the Minnesota judge they were already screwed. So this is hardly "surprising".
All they found out by moving the case to NY is that the problem isn't the specific federal judge that gets the case, the problem is with Goodell and the NFL.
|22 hours 45 min ago||It's only "surprising"||
if you were listening to the sports reporter hacks who cover the NFL (the same ones who told us 100 times there was no chance Harbaugh was ever coming to Michigan) or people who just regurgitate information and weren't actually following the case.
If you listened to people who actually follow federal court cases, this was not surprising at all. They were basically saying that the ONLY way the NFL could even possibly win is if the judge ruled that the CBA was so all-encompassingly powerful that Goodell could essentially do whatever the f*** he wanted without anything to back it up. Because the NFL's case was so unbelievably weak on any grounds of fairness or legality that their only real argument was "The CBA says Goodell is a dictator who can do anything and the players have to take it".
|22 hours 50 min ago||Duh||
Not sure how anyone who has ever followed ACTUAL law cases didn't see this one coming. I wasn't sure Brady would get a full reversal like this, but I was pretty confident he would score some sort of victory.
The NFL had no evidence he did anything. Their entire case was built around a report written by an NFL lackey that they paid millions of dollars to with instructions on how it had to turn out. And it had more holes in it than a bad hockey goalie.
Their only argument was that Goodell could essentially suspend players for any reason because he didn't like them, because he's Kim John Un. That wasn't going to fly in a federal courtroom.
The judge gave the NFL a million outs--he essentially completely broadcast how he was going to rule and told them "hey you morons, settle this case before I publically smack you down", but Goodell is such an egotistical fool, he can't ever go backwards. He's the guy who starts pulling out into the intersection, realizes he's gonna cause a 10-car pileup, and keeps going anyway becaus he doesn't want to seem "weak" by backing his car up 5 feet.
|23 hours 8 min ago||NFL writers = lackies||
And once again, how many NFL writers were all over Brady for taking this to court and saying he had no chance and needed to just roll over and take the suspension? All of them so eager to get in line to suck Goodell's *&)#
|1 day 5 hours ago||Computer Monitors||
A lot of people don't realize that the tech in LCD/LED monitors can be hell on migraine sensitive people. You can't see the screen flickering, but it is there, usually around 120-180Hz. This can be disaster for migraine sensitive people.
A few monitor companies are cluing in now and selling actual flicker-free LCD/LED monitors (Benq), but you really have to look for them.
BTW, I have measured this effect with an optical oscilloscope on uncounted models of monitors. It is definitely a real problem. I can also test it on myself since staring into one of the "flickering" screens for about an hour (even though I can't actually see it flickering) does some seriously bad sh*t to me.
|1 day 19 hours ago||Yes this is the #1 thing I love about Harbaugh as a QB coach||
He doesn't F*** with a QB's mechanics unless he absolutely has to.
So many coaches think they know best how to throw a football. Which is just stupid. Unless a kid is just doing something ridiculous that is robbing him of all of his power or causing him to throw the ball into the line every time, trying to alter the way he has been throwing the ball for all of his life is just going to completely screw him up.
There have been a number of fantastic QB's in the NFL with unorthodox throwing motions. Football is a results-oriented business. Is the kid delivering the ball accurately with zip? Then dammit, DON'T CHANGE HIS THROWING MOTION JUST BECAUSE IT ISN'T PRETTY.
Harbaugh gets this. A lot of coaches do not.
|1 day 19 hours ago||At this point||
why WOULD we be bigger than Oregon? We have to prove something before we get back to Oregon's level. We have sucked recently while they are a top 5 program.

|2 days 21 hours ago||He's not crazy.||
IMO he's just unbelievably competitive.
He most likely screwed up and referred to Va Tech as Georgia Tech several times without realizing it. When Beamer called him on it, he froze up for a moment, realizing he had given them massive bulletin board material. "Harbaugh doesn't even know who he is playing!"
But he wasn't about to let Beamer get one over on him, so he just decided he would even out the score by telling Beamer that he would essentially lie to his own team and tell them that Beamer did the same thing to Stanford (calling them Samford) thus "evening the score" even though Beamer didn't actually do it. So Harbaugh was letting Beamer know that he wasn't going to let Beamer get an advantage out of Harbaugh's screw-up.
I doubt Harbaugh actually said anything about Samford, but I bet Beamer didn't say anything about the Georgia Tech quip either, and THAT was the point of what Harbaugh said. To attempt to neutralize his obvious mistake.
All IMO of course. The guy never stops trying to win every encounter, even when he knows he's flubbed up.

We finally found the person whose sense of humor can't even be measured on the scale.
Who are you, Sheldon from Big Bang Theory or something?
|3 days 7 hours ago||As far as I can tell no||
and it really isn't close.
http://www.sportingnews.com/photos/4592730-top-15-highest-paid-college-f... According to The Sporting News, he is #4, which is still pretty good, but he's several million a year short of Saban at #1. And given his resume, he deserves to be in the top 5 IMO.
The only REAL financial problem I see is that Brady Hoke is the #8 highest paid coach in the country this year sitting at home on his couch. If you want to talk relative value, if we thought Hoke was worth $4.3 million a year (is that # from the Sporting News really correct???) then Harbaugh should be making about $10 million a year.
|3 days 9 hours ago||LOL Gotta love Harbaugh||
Gave Utah just enough info to not be violating the spirit of the idea of trading depth charts without really telling them anything.
"We will be playing 11 guys on offense and 11 different guys on defense. OR maybe not. But probably."
|3 days 10 hours ago||Well||
if they give it to the general public, then people will batter them with questions about it for the next 3 days.
|3 days 10 hours ago||Crazy Ivan! Crazy Ivan!||
|3 days 10 hours ago||No no||
you are ABSOLUTLEY RIGHT.
There was a study done that proved this exact point. It was shown that the smarter a person was, the more likely they were to be able to recognize their own weaknesses.
So you're exactly right--Schlissel is smart enough to understand that he knows NOTHING about big time college athletics and desperately needed to go get someone like Hackett who not only understood athletics at the Division 1-A level, not only understood Michigan, but had been a long-time successful CEO who had dealt with some major crises..
The most dangerous people in charge are the ones that are just dumb enough to not understand that they they don't really know what they are doing.
|3 days 14 hours ago||And you could just as easily argue||
that on paper, Rich Rodriguez should have been a home run hire. He was one of the biggest names in college football when Martin landed him. He flamed out here because he was a bad fit for Michigan, not because he was a terrible hire in general. Matin made a mistake in that he may have hired the best guy on the market for any generic college football coaching position, but he didn't think enough about culture fit. IMO that isn't enough to tar and feather him. He made a big hire, one that could have been explosive (in a GOOD way) for the program, and it just didn't work out.
Rodriguez is obviously doing just fine at Arizona, a place where there was nothing to fit into and they are letting him do whatever the f*** he wants. That isn't how things were going to work at Michigan, nor am I saying they should have been. I just have a hard time pointing a finger at Martin and saying he totally screwed up the Rodriguez hire, because in 2007, Rodriguez looked like a fantastic hire from most angles.
|3 days 22 hours ago||F* the 49ers||
They were leaking stuff to the press trying to undermine Harbaugh themselves during the season. So screw them.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Transitioning||
from high school to college is tough for kickers because they lose the kicking tee. So a guy could be great in HS and really struggle in college.

Going to page 2 has pretty much never worked for me. Once a topic scrolls off page 1, it might as well have never existed.
