is the right answer.
Good luck to the guy. He's too athletic not to catch on somewhere, even if not in the NBA then at a high level overseas. And at the very least he'll always have the highlights. To quote this fine blog:

yep, some terrible fits all around. i agree with the earlier comment about maybe it being good that football coaches can't dress themselves -- much better to be watching tape and dreaming up schemes to sack jt barrett 8 times next year than worrying about your clothes and i'd be happy if they never wore anything but khakis and michigan gear. but i do wonder when athletes and coaches wear cheap, ill-fitting suits. you guys make six or seven figures! go get a couple of decent suits! hell, get a couple of okay suits made to measure! it'll only set you back $2000-2500 and it only takes a couple of hours.
lookin' at you, kevin mchale. andre the giant's corpse wants its burial suit back.

You're right, and actually the word on here was that the coaches were happy with the conditioning. Seems that may have just been them saying the right things to the media.

Not tuition, total estimated cost of attendance. LSA undergrad tuition and fees are now ~$42,000 out-of-state, ~$14,000 in-state

Harbaugh will Harbaugh these guys into Harbaugh shape. And one of them will eventually just Harbaugh the position. I refuse to worry.

I think Jaxpo and space coyote covered the reasons behind the lack of top-end offers pretty well, actually.

As a Washington NFL franchise fan, I must say that this trade saddens me because it will make the Eagles better. Even if McCoy is productive this year, he's a RB. RB careers are nasty, brutish, and short. Kiko Alonso could be a beast for the next 7-8 years.

I dig having the angry sailor wolverine on there but does it have to be right above the crotchal region? Couldn't it be above the name on the back or something?

Fair question, and I have thought about it. But family stuff can get sensitive and I figured I'd leave it alone and continue wondering at one of the few persistent questions in my life that the internet can't answer. I don't know the guy THAT well.

I had forgotten, after all the misery, that Morris was a legit elite recruit. Here's hoping that Harbaugh can Harbaugh the Hoke out of him.

Dear Ondre Pipkins,
Please be healthy and an animal this year and play yourself into the NFL, you big lovable galoot of a young man. I would very much like to see you replicate the Alan Branch domination walk shot, preferably with JT Barrett/Cardale Jones playing the role of Anthony Morelli. Thank you in advance.
On an unrelated and truly irrelevant note, I'm friendly with Ross (Taylor-)Douglas's older brother, who uses the hyphenated last name instead of just "Douglas". Wonder why Ross went without the "Taylor-" part before.

After reviewing the full lot, I stand by this gif. The helmets are almost uniformly (no pun intended) horrible.

We broke the record in DC, too! Five whole degrees Fahrenheit! I know that's not as cold as poor Michigan and Vermont and so on. But still, it's too cold. And we are not inured.

|2 weeks 1 day ago||Similar programs are||
Similar programs are generally not comparing themselves with a team on Ohio State's level. Urban is a capital-g Great coach and they are loaded down with talent on a year-in, year-out level not exceeded by anyone except Alabama.
This is the thing: Even if Harbaugh is every bit as awesome as we hope he'll be, we're still a big step behind OSU now. So a five-year turnaround is too long if the baseline is "be watchable, beat up on MSU and the rest of the B1G, and go to the Rose Bowl," but it's plenty realistic if the baseline is "be every bit as good as OSU, if not better." And that seemed to be the criterion that OPs were using here.

The "aha" moment for me came during that interview he gave to the Daily, in which claimed, with some heat, "I'm not tone deaf!"
What he meant, in context, was that he has feelings that can be hurt. Lacking those feelings is not what "tone deaf" means, and the fact that he incorrectly used a phrase that profoundly describes him was about as neat a summation of the man as could possibly exist.

Maybe, but if Tampa doesn't take the kid from their own back yard I'll be pretty surprised.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Agree, it's not surprising||
Agree, it's not surprising that the best teams on paper are the blue bloods: Carolina jumped out, Georgetown as the OP mentioned, Duke, Kansas. More fun to look at who's surprisingly strong: LSU and Cincy as you mentioned but also Memphis.
It'd be fun if you had to fill a 12-man roster. Memphis's starting five is dirty, I wouldn't want to play them, but I bet the more blue blooded teams could wear them down or force foul trouble and then coast.
ETA: Also, I would take us over OSU in a heartbeat. No homer. Rudy T was a beast.

Pretty good odds that Duke has a kid named "Tyus" in consecutive classes. That's weird.

If a Harbaugh offense never checks down to RBs but still scores a lot of points, does anyone give a shit?

watched the whole thing, don't regret it.
going to an event this weekend where the johns hopkins medical faculty serve as card dealers, croupiers, and bartenders and the med students pretend to gamble and then buy raffle tickets for, like, the head of pediatric neurosurgery to cook them dinner. looking forward to rocking my suit 'n tie on a saturday.
