There's not a way to send a private message but if you both want to keep your email or whatever off the board I can put you and the OP in touch.
|3 hours 32 min ago||Jedd Fisch never played and I||
Jedd Fisch never played and I learned that tonight (h/t to Mr. Miggle). Almost all of the talk, IIRC, was how Harbaugh had managed to land a guy who was an NFL OC immediately prior to taking the WR job.
|3 hours 35 min ago||That's exactly my point. It's||
That's exactly my point. It's not an analogy, it's a claim that if you can coach, nobody cares one iota what your 40 time was twenty years ago or how many tackles you had at Wisconsin- La Crosse.
|4 hours 2 min ago||When Harbaugh was putting his||
When Harbaugh was putting his staff together, was there anyone discussing where Drevno or Durkin or even Mattison had played?
I don't remember one, and the only reason I know that/where they did play is because I just looked it up.

How about 200 points?

I put it in the HoF but then broke a couple other things and Seth reverted back to an earlier version.
We need to bring back the MGoProfile, keep the story in-house.

Seth to the rescue, although the +200 isn't there now.
|4 hours 41 min ago||I didn't realize Leach hadn't||
I didn't realize Leach hadn't played either, so there's a non-asshole example below.
At the end of the day I don't think Nick Saban is relying on his experience at Kent State, or Meyer is relying on football knowledge learned being a backup at Cincinnati or Belichick at DIII Wesleyan. Being a coach isn't the same thing as being a player, to state the obvious.

Proceeding without the +200?
|4 hours 59 min ago||It's not exactly the same||
It's not exactly the same thing, but Patrick Murphey has a softball national title despite never playing. The guy is an asshole, but Charlie Weis never played in college and got a shot at the big leagues.
Taking a look at the article, she played women's football professionally for 10+ years. I don't know enough about this particular woman, but I can't see any reason women in general can't coach at a P5/NFL level.

|5 hours 33 min ago||Very cool, but her title||
Very cool, but her title sounds temporary at this point.
There were a lot of interviews with NHL types around the hype of the USWNT in Sochi saying the last two big barriers for women in American sports were scouting and coaching positions, and it looks like there's been some solid progress since, as the OP mentions.
|8 hours 20 min ago||Replying here so people can||
Replying here so people can see it: Turd's comment could be the first ever +200. I'll put it in the User Created MGoHallofFame under a new header if it gets there.
|14 hours 39 min ago||Am I missing something or is||
Am I missing something or is there an issue specific to Michigan Stadium that prevents scanning directly from the StubHub app?
I haven't been to a football game in a few years but had no problems scanning from my phone at Crisler and Yost last winter.

If mods were robots I'm pretty sure the past tense would have made something blow up. Thankfully, we're mostly humans and/or ponies.

No good in Tampa, although the rain has paused. Hearing we're in for another 6-7 days of this.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Navy Pier fireworks are a||
Navy Pier fireworks are a great memory for me, especially growing up and double especially later in the summer when school is almost back and the temperature is just right once the sun goes down.

I disagree. It's a very good game, but I think Donkey Kong is the best game ever.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Not to be That.Guy (lol)||
But not OT or even OTish. Good post, sounds like a great cause.
|2 days 12 hours ago||What's the story about the||
What's the story about the coaching staff's Rose Bowl gear in Bo's Lasting Lessons? I'd post a picture myself but I'm at work, completely clueless on the year and only about 90% sure it was a Rose Bowl.

What movie is that and who are The Bobs?

Updating software for the 2000 switch. I had eight different bosses, was regularly asked to work Saturday and even Sunday. The printer/fax sucked and was a source of constant drama.
After the two decent coworkers I had were fired I stayed on with a plan to rip the place off. Thankfully a fire bailed me out when that started going poorly.

It's one thing to give Mack (or, frankly, Red) the duration of their contract and respect, but the program > any one person.
If the best thing for the Texas football program was Mack going, he needed to go.
|4 days 2 hours ago||Hey, they're putting in||
Hey, they're putting in effort; their "their" was also correct up there.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Best of luck Mr Roundtree.||
I know there was some serious hating on this game earlier in the week, but Denard to Roundtree to open the 2010 Illinois game is about as good as it gets on a first play.

Basketball and hockey are not the same sport.

That's why seeing the tournament numbers and Frozen Four numbers were more surprising to me than having "new" programs winning titles.
Yale winning a title is probably a historical outlier, but moving to an era where 56% of all graduating seniors played in at least one tournament could suggest more structural change than a few lucky bounces can account for. I don't know what that number has been in the past, but I wouldn't be surprised if that's a significant increase from the eighties and ninties.
