Thankful for you and LSA and all the other MGoPeople that help make this such a great community.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Do you have any insight as to||
Do you have any insight as to what Babcock's workload now is compared to the hours a top college coach puts in? I kind of doubt he comes just because it seems like there's no compelling reason, but a bunch of little things adding up could make the rumors more believable too.
In football it seems like an NFL coach should be able to have a life during the offseason instead of recruiting 24/7, but the NHL season is way longer than the NFL season is, and I don't know if a hockey coach is recruiting as much as a football coach.
|1 day 16 hours ago||Very true.||
I'd let JT Barrett take a shot at me early in the game if I was on the field, just to see what happened.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Am I the only one who thinks||
Am I the only one who thinks throwing a single punch really isn't that big of a deal during a football game? I'm not talking about hitting someone on the ground or starting a brawl, but I thought it was ridiculous that Gholston was suspended for punching Lewan in the helmet and got nothing for twisting Denard's helmet while he was on the ground, for one crazy example.
I get that it's unsportsmanlike and should obviously get flagged, but dismissing someone from a team for hitting a guy wearing a helmet seems crazy to me.

Snowflake, should be a comment somewhere.
|2 days 9 hours ago||A few additional quotes from USA Hockey:|
|2 days 11 hours ago||I chuckled, FWIW.||
Let me go on record as anti-murder, but your imagery worked for what you were trying to get across, at least for me.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Yeah.||
If you're linking MGoBlog in an OP it's almost definitely meta.
|2 days 12 hours ago||There might be school rules||
There might be school rules against it at some places or complicating factors if the family is considered boosters, but I have recent firsthand experience with seeing it happen in D1. The NCAA has a compliance form that monitors how much they're getting paid.
|2 days 13 hours ago||I don't know how helpful this||
I don't know how helpful this is (especially because you just said he has a pitching coach) but you can hire a college player to give pitching lessons.
|2 days 13 hours ago||I'm pretty sure that's just||
I'm pretty sure that's just about every off-field incident under Hoke except the Will Campbell Dukes of Hazzard thing and the Glasgow DUI. I'd bet most teams have had more legal issues than Michigan since 2011 and outside of some questionable press conference answers about Gibbons and some thinking the first Clark suspension was light, it seems like Hoke has made the right call in each case.

|3 days 10 hours ago||If it can apply elsewhere||
If it can apply elsewhere what exactly was the point of saying a fraternity shouldn't exist in civilized culture? There is absolutely nothing inherent about a fraternity that says "institutionalize evil acts".
|3 days 11 hours ago||Well Mr God, it won't take but a second...|
|3 days 11 hours ago||WBB is probably the least||
WBB is probably the least successful varsity program at Michigan (not counting lacrosse because that's not fair at this point).
|3 days 11 hours ago||Maybe "some things just come||
Maybe "some things just come down to bad luck" would be a better way to phrase it, but 2010 definitely had a lot of problems that even the best coaching in the world wouldn't have fixed (and yes, there were big time problems with the coaching too).
|3 days 11 hours ago||Here's a link to that paper.||
Here's a link to that paper. Thank you for posting this, I had thought your other comment below about putting a plan in place wouldn't be very effective (because most organizations already have formal programs covering a lot of topics, some not so successfully) and this completely changed my mind.
|3 days 12 hours ago||If what they're doing is||
If what they're doing is suspending the governing bodies within UVA pending investigation that's probably the right thing to do.
If they're pulling funds for anything or kicking students out of houses or earmarked dorms I don't think that's right unless they have some solid evidence that the chapter itself is engaging in a coverup (or that the person they're punishing is guilty of course).
|3 days 12 hours ago||That's not what he said.||
When asked about freshman playing like freshman (a lot of whom were forced into action via injury) RR said, "Vince Lombardi could come in and not be able to fix some of the problems with this defense."
|3 days 12 hours ago||You could make the same||
You could make the same comment about literally any organized group of people.
|3 days 15 hours ago||That is not the purpose of a||
That is not the purpose of a fraternity any more than it's the purpose of a football team or a military unit.
|4 days 5 hours ago||My first thought was the||
My first thought was the Michael Scott "NO GOD NO" gif but it immediately turned to sadness that Brady's problems are completely different. Hoke doesn't have any doubt (and RR shouldn't have had any either) that he's a Michigan Man and won't have that kind of Bust.
|4 days 5 hours ago||With coaching transitions I||
With coaching transitions I had thought it was custom to keep a minumum of one guy from the previous staff. Did Strong, Muschamp, Sarkisian, or other coaches with top tier jobs, fire everyone? I know Meyer didn't and RR/Hoke both kept one (Fred Jackson).
|4 days 6 hours ago||Ha.||
It's all good, until you start the ad hominems and saying a big salary means someone couldn't possibly empathize with me. Actually, I'd still be perfectly okay but I bet some people on the internet would call you a jerk or make some counterpoints or something.
|4 days 9 hours ago||If Hoke making $16m is your||
If Hoke making $16m is your issue, the blame and anger for it should be directed towards Brandon/MSC/Regents, not Hoke.
I know I'm not going to convince anyone who thinks differently than me, but if someone offered me $16m guaranteed to do a job (even if I knew I wasn't qualified to do it, which I highly doubt Hoke ever thought) I'm taking it for the simple reason that I love my family more than anything I could get paid that money to run.

Holy shit Norfleet...if it stands.
|4 days 13 hours ago||You're right, of course. Let me rephrase:||
|4 days 14 hours ago||I don't get what Hoke||
I don't get what Hoke resigning now gets Michigan. It ends speculation, but what is that really worth to the program, other than confirming some player's opinions one way or another (and incrementally moving up the timeline for season ticket holders to renew)? Same thing with firing Hoke before OSU; assuming you think he should be gone regardless of what happens in Columbus, what's the actual benefit in announcing it before the game?
|5 days 3 hours ago||Still excited from the Kansas||
Still excited from the Kansas State loss or already getting excited about the Iowa State game next week?
|5 days 5 hours ago||Cider, of the Stella variety.||
I got a glass that says Cidre and four of them for seven bucks, not a bad find to tack on the end of some grocery shopping.
