|1 day 13 hours ago||I don't understand all the fuss||
We've known Hackett would be around for a while because Schlissel's going to take his sweet time with the search. Some national media guys find this out, and claim Hackett is the permanent AD because they can't wrap their little brains around Schlissel not moving at the speed of the newscycle. And then everybody freaks out because they forget that we already know everything that national media guys think they just learned but actually misunderstood.
That's what happened, right? So we should probably just calm down now.

I don't think "rim jobbed" means what you think it does
|2 days 22 hours ago||WOOOO||
You people have no faith. Has the football team broken you? Beilein knows how to coach. Don't forget that.
|3 days 5 min ago||Just to be clear||
The people getting screwed are the student-athletes who usually get up early in the morning to work out. They're just so lucky the NCAA protects their amateur status so they can't be taken advantage of by corporations.

that is all.

It'd be swell if you'd explain who you are talking about other than Les and the Harbaughs. That's a mystery third option and...Jim Caldwell? Why would he want to coach Michigan? And, seriously, who is the third pre-Les, non-Harbaugh option?

I think he'd be a pretty effective recruiter without contacting recruits at all if what he was doing instead was winning the Super Bowl.

Our TV exposure has been total shit all year so far.
|1 week 9 hours ago||So who are the 4-5?||
|1 week 1 day ago||He's had family members||
He's had family members lobbying him to transfer for years, as first noticed (by me!) a few years ago when his sister tweeted that he should become a Gator. I suspect that his family thinks he can play in the NBA, and what he'd been doing at Michigan certainly wasn't going to get him there.
|1 week 1 day ago||Just to be clear||
You quoted a 10 year number for cop deaths and a 1 year number for killer cops. That's 150 cop deaths per year, and between 400 and 3000 killer cops per year.
Based on your numbers, I agree with you that cops are in great moral danger of becoming murderers every time they go to work, and in between 5% and 37.5% as much danger of being killed themselves.
|1 week 2 days ago||DG's last answer is great||
It's great that these kids continue to have such a good relationship with Hoke. That'll be what we have to hang our hats on if, somehow, he keeps his job.
|1 week 2 days ago||Your long paragraph fits me||
I was kind of willing to blame the Morris reinsertion on the doctors, and I was happy to blame the Morris press conference shenanigans on Brandon given that it really looked like Hoke got hung out to dry, but the apology to Dantonio throwing Joe Bolden under the bus was totally beyond the pale. Dantonio has repeatedly let his players try to injure/maim/kill Michigan players on the field without a peep from either side. He runs a dangerous program that our players shouldn't have to deal with. So apologizing to him was not just preposterous, but totally inconsistent with leading Michigan's football program. Even if that was Brandon controlling Hoke, at some point you've got to have a backbone if you want to be a leader, and issuing that apology was just absolutely inexcusable. He lost me for real in that moment.
|1 week 3 days ago||Marshall||
The whole point of the playoff was to give undefeated teams a shot. I have Marshall at 4 if they remain undefeated.
|1 week 3 days ago||you're right that the OP is wrong||
But I think you were wrong to take this down. All of the critics were just pointing to what the cops said, as if police reports have never gotten anything wrong before. Hoke did say that he got both sides of the story, and how he got FC's side of the story is an open (and interesting) question.
|1 week 3 days ago||The OP is not exactly wrong||
It's unclear how Hoke got enough information to make the call without speaking to Clark. But he did say he'd heard both sides of the story. I'm guessing he talked to a teammate who Clark had texted or something afterwards. You can't throw the guy off the team unless you're confident he's not being falsely accused, and you have to have something beyond the police report for that. But Hoke said he had it, and I believe him about that.
|1 week 4 days ago||Good||
Hopefully the victim heals physically and emotionally and gets Frank out of her life before he hurts her or her baby again.
As for us, after Gibbons left, we could claim to be free of violent criminals for the first time in years. With Clark booted--granted only after he turned violent criminal--we are free of criminals altogether, right? YMMV on the role of the second receiver in the Csont'e York sucker punching (I, for one, think he should also have been charged), but this is an improvement.
|1 week 4 days ago||Depends...||
Is destruction of public records a civil offense?
|1 week 5 days ago||for the computer non-savvy…why not just return it?||
My mom claimed to have gotten a really fucked up computer out of the box once. I never believed her account of any of the symptoms, and I still kind of think the Best Buy people were just fucking with her. But what she did was return the computer and buy another one later. Solved her problem with minimal aggravation.
|1 week 5 days ago||Wait a minute. Where's the||
Wait a minute. Where's the apology to Dantonio?
ETA: I posted that before I read the statement. Fortunately I don't have to revise it... In all seriousness, I hope the allegations prove false, for everyone's sake. But if FC committed another crime...ugh, see ya.
|1 week 5 days ago||Ugh||
This guy already had a second chance. Not good.

Princeton has plenty of graduate students for its size, and very well-regarded programs.
|2 weeks 22 hours ago||I'll be sad to see Hoke go||
I keep thinking of making a snowflake thread of my own about Hoke, but it's not really thread-worthy. I'm sad for him, but I'm also sad for us because I think he would've been a great fit if he could have gotten the team to perform. People have said it before, and I agree: his loyalty to position coaches who are in over their heads will eventually have cost him his dream job. You gotta wonder whether a less incompetent Athletic Director might have been able to support Hoke in a way that led to success on the field instead of Appalachian State rematches and PR disasters.
|2 weeks 22 hours ago||Yes||
Everyone is fired, except Williams who ought to be fired and may be before this is all over (although I'm sure they'll allow him to resign if it comes to that). The accreditor has to investigate. Making sure this sort of thing doesn't happen is more or less the only thing they do. They're just very slow organizations.
I suspect that UNC will explain the actions they've taken and the accrediting body will say that's enough and put them on some kind of weak probation. Maybe the accreditors will demand some additional oversight or something if UNC's existing actions aren't sufficiently impressive.
But a really interesting thing will be what the NCAA does after an accrediting body makes it undeniably official that the UNC AD was making an absolute mockery of the whole student-athlete thing.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Cool||
It would be cool if somehow this destroyed UNC basketball. I still haven't forgiven them.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||He's injured||
He's injured, and Hoke has said as much.
It's a lot safer to hold off on starting threads unless you know that you have all the relevant information, especially if you're going to write a really long OP.

Congratulations to my fellow Fort Wayne native Austin Hatch.

But how do I watch this game? BTN Plus? I'm guessing my cable coop doesn't do that.
