That appeared to be the easiest at my school. From what I saw of the people in that program, they were a jack of all trades but master of none.

What are the actual classes? I'm assuming that they are basically Computer Algorithms 1 and 2 from the context.

At this point, he either wants to come here or he doesn't. If he wants to stay in the NFL, then there was no chance at him coming here. If money is the goal, then he's not getting a better offer anywhere else. So, if he wants to come here but tries to negotiate more money, then he's just trying to sweeten the deal on where he wants to end up.
With that said, you don't budge from your offer, especially considering that he hasn't done anything for us yet. If he wants more money, then you put the clause in there that makes him the highest paid coach at whichever level he wins. That means if he wants to be paid more than Saban, then he needs to win a championship, at which point, pay the guy as much as he wants to keep him happy.

If it is garbage, then why post it here? When you post it, they get clicks, which is incentive to post more garbage. It also pushes the other content off the front page of the board. There is seriously no good that can come from posting it.

Michigan making an incredible offer and Harbaugh staying in the NFL are not mutually exclusive.

"I predict Michigan to make its serious push on Jimmy when the Niners are officially eliminated from playoff contention."
So, like next weekend? They basically have to win out, hope that Detroit and Dallas both lose 2 of their last 3 and that Seattle loses another game just to have it come down to tiebreakers between those 4 teams, which I think they still lose on. I think they might officially be eliminated if they lose to Seattle on Sunday and either Detroit or Dallas win.

So, say Arizona beats Oregon and Wisconsin beats OSU. Who makes it in? Bama, FSU, and TCU are locks (assuming they win). Then you have 1-loss Baylor, 2-loss Arizona, and then pick a 2-loss school that didn't win their conference (Mississippi State?).

But, how do you put a 2-loss team that didn't win their conference above a 1-loss team that did? I mean, either Mizzou is good enough to make it in on their own at 2 losses or Bama will have lost to a team that they shouldn't lose to.

I don't know that it's something that you should necessarily know about yet, but, from what I've seen, it's one of those clickbait sites that tries to generate interest through reposts and likes on facebook.
Generally, though, if it's an opinion article like that, I wouldn't even bother posting it. The whole point is to get people to link to it in other forums. So what if a 20-something looking for an idea for an article disagrees on who the best point guard from Michigan is? You're doing exactly what they want you to do.

I am not saying that any of those things are necessarily wrong, but I think how you got to those conclusions is not necessarily right and you might end up being disappointed because of that.
I went to see him play a couple weeks ago when they played Groves and it was brutal. It was like watching Alabama play Alabama St. Everyone on Brother Rice is just bigger than Groves. The first play on offense for Brother Rice was a slant (or some other short-to-mid-range route across the middle of the field) and the receiver just weaved in and out of the defense for 70 yards. Runs were often 10 yards before the RB got touched. It was just a complete domination due to physically-gifted players at every position.
Brother Rice is like that in pretty much every sport. They have feeder programs at the lower levels and they recruit players to their schools. Obviously, there has to be some skill on Malzone's part, but he is surrounded by great players and has been since he first started. Three straight titles to me is a reflection of the skill across the team, not necessarily his leadership skills. A lot of the yards (from what I saw) are YAC and that is a reflection of the skill on his team. It's also a reason that they can keep the playbook simple with short, quick throws, which increases his completion percentage.
Long story short, I think he'll be great for us, especially if we end up with some sort of passing spread. I just wouldn't read too much into those numbers as there is just too much of a disparity of talent in high school sports for them to mean much.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I'm not sure why that||
I'm not sure why that matters. Coaches sign extensions all the time. If Michigan (or any other program) doesn't come knocking on his door, he needs to ensure his future. $250k is basically nothing if Michigan thinks that this is the guy that puts Michigan in the top 5 year after year.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||I think this is a realistic||
I think this is a realistic take on our team. What the national media doesn't seem to see, though, is that our youth seem to develop very quickly under Beilein and have generally broken through by the tournament. I fully expect to have some frustrating games out of our bigs early on in the season with them being at least consistent and serviceable by the end. We will be relying on our guards to carry the team this year, though.

I didn't say I want anything. Just my read on an extremely unlikely situation.

Not to mention that we have a lot of young talent on the team that just needs proper coaching. This team is primed for someone to come in and look like a god in their first season.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||I find it hard to believe||
I find it hard to believe that Hoke would be fired if we beat Maryland and OSU. Winning your last 4 games and beating OSU in Columbus will set up huge expectations next year. But, with that stipulation in place, I wouldn't doubt that they have a plan ready for when we get blown out by OSU.

Here's the problem with that logic (as I see it). The drive from Palo Alot to SD is 7.5 hours. It's not feasible for a weekend trip. So, if you're going to spend two full days traveling, getting on a plane makes little difference.

That's a good question. I assumed that it would be on mgoblue.com when I setup the viewing party at work, but now I'm wondering if we're just going to have to celebrate without a feed.

Prestige was entertaining. The Illusionist was a much more well-rounded movie, though.

I thought of Baseketball and Van Wilder a little bit ago. I'm glad someone else posted them.

I was going to say Primal Fear, but thought that it probably wasn't "underrated" as Edward Norton was nominated for an Academy Award for it. If we're including it, though, American History X has to be on the list. He absolutely should have won the award for best actor that year.
