|5 days 2 hours ago||Bacari's highlights||
First off, do we think that tape comes on during team meetings? because it should.
Secondly, there was a free throw in the highlight reel
Third, many of the highlights were just wide open dunks
Fourth, Bacari seemed to relish just backing down guys. You could say he's all about that base.

Who the hell could have actually watched M00N and said "now that's progress!"???
|6 days 4 hours ago||Somewhat surprised that they went unchanged||
With the Good/Bad home schedules I had assumed that the AD would keep prices flat in "bad" home schedule years like 2014 and 2016, and bump them during the "good" years with MSU and OSU at home. That may still happen with ticket prices themselves, but at least the PSDs stayed flat.

It seems that part of why Harbaugh is ruffling feathers in SF is that he wants more roster control than the GM will give him. The other aspect is that he may have a shelf life with his players - they can only handle his coaching style for 4 years or so.
Now if only there were a coaching situation where he could have roster control and turnover he might be a long term fit.....
|1 week 4 days ago||I don't think we disagree||
I'd be fine retaining Mattison. We know he can coach, Heininger Certainty Principle, etc. It'd help with recruiting for sure. My only concern is his loyalty to Brady, it would be a delicate move to keep him but the right coach could do so.
|1 week 4 days ago||A couple thoughts||
1. I doubt Mattison would stay if Brady were fired unless either Harbaugh were hired and wanted to retain him. Mattison worked for John Harbaugh in Baltimore, so that's a possible in.
2. Mattison will stay in Ann Arbor even if he's not coaching. His daughter (& family & granddaughter Matti) all live there and he said that was part of why he took the job too.
3. On a new coach "being in the AD search committee" - I think that makes sense. No one is saying that Harbaugh should pick his boss, but saying that the new coach should have no input makes no sense either. Beilein mentioned that he wanted to be on the committee and I think he should be. The football coach should be too. People at many levels are involved in hires - could be for someone at the same position, a boss, etc. I helped interview backfill candidates despite being the least-tenured person in my group. Picking a new boss with zero employee input isn't a recipe for sucess. Let many coaches help with the search committee, take their responses into account, and go forward.
|1 week 4 days ago||I agree with your thoughts||
But here's a bit of devil's advocate - Maryland just instituted "scholarship classes until a degree for life" or whatever it's called. What if the students could major in football while eligible (and take complimentary classes as well) and then after they were done they could have time to get whatever degree they wanted? Kind of like going into the military for a couple years to pay for college isn't it?

Applause dot GIF.
Very well done Brian. I got my degree in Mechanical Engineering and I can't tell you the last time I did a statics equation. I design car parts for a living and much more critical to my current position is the "engineering mindset" than the ability to do equations. Problem solving wasn't explicitly taught in any one class I took but it's a skill I learned along the way - just like football players learn teamwork, PR/public speaking, etc. I would be so in on an "Athletics" major with one stipulation - requirements outside the degree. When not in-season let's make the athletes take classes that are outside their comfort zone. I'm not saying put them in EECS 314 (which SUCKED) but engineering students had to complete a sequence - reaching a 300 level course - in something that wasn't math, science or engineering. Let's do the same for those measuring in athletics. Broaden the horizons a bit - make it pass/fail if you want - but I think it's a good idea. - EDIT - I like what the guy above me said. If 90 credits in major / 30 out is good for the Music school, let's make it the same.

Guessing many people don't remember 3 and out...
|1 week 5 days ago||GM might be out too||
Emery's sure spent a lot of money trying to rebuild 1 group at a time but the team is really lacking LBs, DBs and special teams. If they fire the GM & Coach that might make it more likely that harbaugh ends up there. Big picture I don't disagree with you
|1 week 5 days ago||It's become a bit of a Chicago Pipe Dream||
Harbaugh played there (sound familiar???) and they're going to be looking for a good coach.
Personally I think that Harbaguh/Cutler is a beat writer's wet dream...

Used to run them in my 1991 Jeep Wrangler (in like 2004) and wish it was faster and more fun.

The atmosphere is great and the food is amazing. I barely remember the hole-in-the-wall place but I was a kid when I used to go there. Ditto on the Spaghetti Diablo. The Chicken Marsuvio is great too.
I'd throw Flat-Top Grill in as well - Evanston was one of the original locations before the (now failed) expansion that had one in ann arbor at one point. Think BD's Mongolian except more, better, fresher veggies and more of a restaurant feel - put your bowl by the cookers and go back to your table. Get the Roti Prata on the side. You'll thank me.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Remember where IU was though||
Coming down from Bobby Knight, still looking for their national relvance and here comes a successful mid-level coach to rescue them from mediocre play and the embarrasment of sanctions. IU didn't have lots of barganing power.

If this sentence wasn't begging for the Aarball Gif, I don't know what is.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed||
I think that while fans want to be hopeful there is limited reason to hope with Hoke at this point. Regression and fewer wins each year don't get fans excited.

Speaking of Buddy, did you ever read about his "Polish Goalline Defense"??

Mr. Spots was the place for wings. We had Skeeps nachos about 5 minutes before the kitchen closed... Skeeps was much better for $0.75 Bud Lights on friday nights.

I ate food at Skeeps. Once. Right before graduation to say that I did it. I do not recommend it.
Also, on a separate evening, I threw up on South U leaving Charlie's. However I was able to do it in both public trash cans, right outside the door an dat South U and East U.

and good luck with the search. Where are you located and is it in technical sales? My company (automotive supplier) had a couple sales openings in the metro detroit area last I checked. You can look me up on twitter @jeepinben and I can send you listings.

|3 weeks 6 days ago||I don't know that you and Brian disagree completely||
The "It takes a generation" comment fits with what you're saying here. Many fans have been turned off, the question is just how many. The other reply already states that at least some people are rethinking season tickets due to the general malaise of the last 7+ years. I think part of it is that every year under DB & Hoke it has become harder to justfiy even more money for an even worse product. The AD has already shown contrition to the students. If the new AD comes in and does a re-run of the Domino's campaign once DB left (see below, and contrast that with DB's emails) drops PSLs and/or ticket prices for a year, apologizes to fans, and makes a good coaching hire I think the fnas will come back in droves. That said, if the team continues to struggle and fail and lose 5+ games a year? who knows.
