I don't care who wins the game as long as it's a good game. We've gotten a lot of go blues and Harbaugh appreciation.

How refreshing is that coming from his mother considering the number of stories we've seen about crazy parents pushing their kids in a direction? Good for her.

Seths point about that loss of institutional knowledge is what stood out for me. Once you lose that, especially at the level with which Brandon got rid of it, you can't just get it back. I'm sure we can make some good hires who will do excellent jobs, but it'll take a lot of work and many years to rebuild what Brandon destroyed.
Second, as much as I dont like him, I find it harder to blame Brandon for being the person he always has been than it is to blame MSC and the regents for not doing the necessary research to know that about Brandon. The information was out there, and they still hired him.

i would love to go back and do a review of past years BTN Tweets to see which ones pan out...

Have you ever gone to a pizza place where they tell you the pizza is "famous"? If they have to tell you, then it's not famous. Same thing for toughness. If you have to talk about it every day, then you're not tough. Hoke talked about toughness...but Harbaigh doesn't have to tell anyone that he's the instilling toughness. He's just doing it.

at least he's going to a school that I already cheer against.

I was listening to Cowherd a few weeks ago:
"Game of Thrones. What does that even mean? What is a throne? It doesn't even make sense. Game of Thrones!"
I don't think I've ever agreed with anything he has said on air.

I actually like that design. It's very simple, very clean. Way better than anything Adidas has done for us.

So with Shelton Johnson at DE in a few years our DLine will be Johnson & Johnson.

Hey Patrick -
hat's an interesting option... my email is email@example.com (trusting the blog here!). Feel free to shoot me an email and we'll see if it's a good fit.

Bringing a car, yes. I'm thinking Lake Merritt would be a solid option - looking at Adam's Point. Do you have any recommednations more specifically on where within Oakland without getting into the bad areas?

I'm 30, past my crazy going out days, but would love to be an area with a handful of restaurants/coffee shops. Safety - I don't want to worry about my place getting broken into or getting mugged on the street. I don't need that much space, but would rather have a 2br with a roommate than a small studio.
I know it's tough to suggest...but I appreciate the thoughts. So far I've been looking on Craigslist at Inner Sunset and Lake Merritt as jumping off points.

I once sat behind Patty, the Millionaire Matchmaker, while seeing No Strings Attached in Santa Monica. She was with her 2 friends, and laughed so insanely hard at every single joke (none of which were funny) - almost like she was putting a show on for the whole theater, like, we should know that she thinks this is funny. Stomping her feet on the ground, cackling, with her 2 copycat friends.
Oh, and that movie is also terrible.

Spider-Man 3 is one of the worst movies ever made. Sounds like that guy did you a favor.

... And this is why satellite camps are great for the kids. This kid is in the SECs backyard. Nobody offered. Now he will be getting an education and opportunity at Michigan. This is really great.

Honestly I love that he's wearing a USF hat. It shows that this is not just about Michigan, that he's a coach who truly just loves to coach and loves the kids...we need more guys like Jim out there who understand the difference between being competitive and being selfish.

One mistake... I believe Forrest was attending the camp in Alabama, not Tampa...

Not sure, but they've been very close friends for a long time.

We can't underestimate how critical Minick is to Harbaugh. He's essentially Harbaugh's gatekeeper, and is a critical part of keeping Jim's house in order. All assumptions of guilt or innocence aside, if Harbaugh is forced to part ways, there could be some unseen consequences behind the scenes.

One could say that reactions thusfar have been....over-inflated.

This will go to an arbitrator, and I would bet the majority of this penalty gets reduced. Roger Goddell will look like an idiot, yet again, and the Pats will furhter Goddell's embarrassment by advancing in the playoffs and having a solid season.

But guys, we can only make good music if you invest a few thousand dollars and we get pop sensations like Eminem and Madonna to contribute! Plus how did they get thousands of views without an expensive marketing campaign? I don't undesrtsand how this happened. Did Scooter Braun produce it?

HYPOTHETICALLY!! And not to get hopes up, but if Brown were to commit, what does our starting 5 look like next year? Whose minutes does he eat up?
|22 weeks 6 days ago||If you watch the MGOBLUE||
If you watch the MGOBLUE video, it's very clear that this was handled the right way from the start. Coach B and Austin had been discussing this for a while, and it's not just for the basketball team - its really for Austin to be able to focus on his academics, which is much more important than playing 60 seconds of garbage time 5 times in a season. Also, check out Beileins arm around Hatch throughout the interview. There's no doubt how much he cares for Austin. This is a story that we should all be proud of as it represents the best of our university and of college athletics.

Funny to hear Marcus Ray pull a hard 180, from his full support of Hoke and his staff at the end of last season to finally admitting how poorly coached the team had been in previous years. I seriously feel terrible for the players - to put so much energy into the sport and not have the coaching to support it, those are years of coaching and improvement that they can't get back. Bummer.

It's actually weird how the basketball and football coaching changes of the past decade or so mirror each other. Ellerbe:Amaker:Beilein = RichRod:Hoke:Harbaugh
Ellerbe and RichRod both recruited decently, but as people never seemed to quite fit in, had some brushes with rules issues and had recruiting practices that the university as an institution didn't love. They were both fired for
Amaker & Hoke - 2 squeaky clean men, great guys, focus on academics, but never could quite do enough with the talent that they had. There was some promise based on success at smaller schools, but it never translated at this level. Despite their records, both men did a wonderful job of stabilizing the program, but were fired and replaced by
Beilein & Harbaugh - 2 legends In their own regard. Focus not only on academics but on doing things the right way, and seem to be great at identifying and developing talent both with players and staff.
Hopefully the parallel will be solidified by Harbaugh winning some championships in the next few years.

The improvement for both Dawkins and Chatman the past few weeks has been so much fun to watch. Add Lavert, Walton, and Duncan Robinson to this team for next year...but the key is just hoping that Doyle makes a big enough leap to shore up the 5...if so, it could be a great group.

This is 100% stages. That guy is part of an improv group in Minnesota. He did a workshop with my office a few years ago where he talked about the 2003 one being staged.
