|4 days 4 hours ago||You make a great point||
Thank you President Schlissel for being comfortable having an employee 2 levels beneath you in the organization earning 10 times what you make.
|4 days 7 hours ago||The edge?||
Some theorists are actually arguing now that the internet is round.

But the dude holding the sign has a 4 foot long right arm.

Wow. I'm stunned.

When Harbaugh returns
MSU soils itself, and
One more 10 year war
|1 week 1 day ago||I'm not buying this unless||
I'm not buying this unless "Mrs. Harbaugh" was wearing a Groucho Marx glasses/ nose/ moustache disguise.
|1 week 1 day ago||This got me thinking||
I wonder how many other college football fans are hoping Harbaugh comes to Michigan?
I've seen writers on teams from other conferences opine that they hope Michigan returns to being consistently good. Having big games played in the Big House for all marbles is good for the game in general.
|1 week 1 day ago||Yet more confirmation that||
Yet more confirmation that Hackett totally gets it.
And he's making changes in a respectful way, allowing people to save face to the extent that's possible.
Schlissel made a very wise -- or lucky -- choice.
|1 week 1 day ago||It gets complicated, but||
Employees of state institutions, like public school teachers (and U-M employees) are covered under state labor law.
Maybe an MGoLaborAttorney can weigh in.
|1 week 2 days ago||That seems about right||
Always thought it was cool that a sports reporter from Kalamazoo had a vote on the AP football poll.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'll upvote a Jack Moss reference||
Isn't he living in a retirement village in Florida now?
In the old days in the Michigan stadium press box they assigned press seats based on how long you've been covering the games, with the best seats given to the old-timers. Jack said his seat was on the 48 yard line and that's why he didn't retire from sports writing earlier.
|1 week 6 days ago||Glad you got good news on your health, Ace!||
To celebrate, I hope you used this classic line on your doctor:
Ace (to doctor): "Doctor, will I be able to play the piano when my treatment is complete?"
Doctor: "Of course."
Ace: "That's amazing because I've always wanted to play the piano!"
|1 week 6 days ago||Agreed||
His quote had to be taken out of context because nobody's that misguided.
But then again maybe every preconception I've ever had about the guy is spot on.

If Gil Brandt isn't reporting this via Twitter I'm not buying a word of it.

It's highly unlikely a high-profile school does a search these days without this lunacy happening.
Agents do their sleazy thing because that's in the best interests of their clients.
Coaches contacted to guage interest tell a few people because they have egos -- and are human.
Sports pundits talk about it and offer mostly lame opinions because that's what they get paid to do.
I'm now returning to the lotus position until Jim Hackett calls a news conference. (With breaks every 15 minutes to press F5.)
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Thinking positive thoughts||
Thinking positive thoughts for you, Ace.
Hope your doctors get this figured out soon so you can get back to doing what you're so passionate about.
Your work on this board gives me a reason to smile just about every day.

I hope no mgocitizen's job security depends on a highly productive December and early January.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||And is that a flight from Easter Island?||
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I wouldn't give the job to||
I wouldn't give the job to Miles over Harbaugh now just so Jim can have another few years to get his superbowl ring.
However, if Harbaugh isn't interested now, I might see him coming to home to Michigan later in his coaching career.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Soon after he was hired I||
Soon after he was hired I recall Brian writing a piece where he referred to the press taking turns tickling Brady's belly.
I still laugh when I think about that.
I suppose UTL I would have to be a close second.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||And Hackett immediately added||
And Hackett immediately added that DeBord won't be a candidate for the head coach job.
He had that base covered.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||I totally agree that the||
I totally agree that the process has to produce a great outcome this time.
But I don't see how the process can begin until Hoke is let go. People talk. And there is too big a chance that details would leak. The AD would look awful. As tempting as it would be, Hackett can't risk this.
We've got to let Hoke go and take our chances.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||That's incredible news!||
Made my day!
|3 weeks 3 days ago||If Hoke is retained...||
I'll still go to every game, just like always.
And I'll enjoy the extra leg room created by the 25% of season ticket holders who don't renew.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Incredibly cool news!||
Congrats to this young man.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||For just a moment...||
My dyslexic brain thought Deon Long was actually Leon Dong.
And hearing the PA announcer say that would be something to look forward to tomorrow.
Yet another disappointment this season.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||The late Harold Ramis' birthday?||
I'm definitely in for this posbang.
|5 weeks 9 hours ago||This raises an interesting point||
Can you put out feelers to potential candidates-- let alone do anything more formal than that -- when you haven't fired the old coach yet?
My gut tells me Hackett will have to make an up or down decision on Hoke before doing any real work on searching for a replacement.
To do it any other way in the days of flight tracker, etc. runs the risk of the whole thing blowing up in Hackett's face.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||I still can't reward the Free Press with a click||
But I suspect I've read Seidel's story 50 times before with different names, circumstances and authors.
And I'll absolutely trust you and Brian that he's an idiot.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||High expectations||
"Off the charts" expectations and being able to make tough decisions to achieve them.
With players on the field, in the classroom, and with their personal behavior.
With his coaching staff.
With compliance on all rules and regulations.
With the team's on field record.
