A rice dressing, or cornbread?

Yes, it does. Scheduling charleston southern & Idaho means that bama and auburn have a scrimmage during their bye week prior to the iron bowl.

You are aware, are you not, that harbaugh has had only 10 players on the field for a punt, aren't you?
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Still not balanced.||
Still not balanced. Michigan, Ohio state, Wisconsin beat MSU, osu, Nebraska & Iowa on a regular basis. If you really want balance, you need to split Michigan & osu, and we know how well that will go over. And the plains alignment only looks good because Iowa is playing well this year. And the Minnesota-Nebraska game needs to be protected because of the broken chair trophy.

You should be following weather underground, since it was started by a um grad.

So it's hip hop, not carbon emissions, that are responsible for climate change?
|9 weeks 12 hours ago||I read that, too.||
And thought of the Bo quote:
“When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing”
Seems to me that that was what Hoke was trying to do.

He made them pay the PSD if they wanted tickets.
|9 weeks 13 hours ago||Even better.||
That was shitty, but we had heard stuff like that about Brandon before the book.
Bus Brandon is a business man. And the contract with Adidas gave them 8 (I think that's the number) good tickets at the final 4. Brandon used them for his family and scattered the Adidas people in lesser seats.
|9 weeks 13 hours ago||That section told us sooo much.||
I dare anyone to look at Hoke's tenure the same way after reading it.
|9 weeks 13 hours ago||I think the book puts quite a different light||
on the letter of support that all the coaches signed.
|9 weeks 13 hours ago||That really didn't surprise me.||
After all, didn't MSC hire Ferentz when she was president of Iowa, and isn't she responsible for his ginormous contract? I also always figured that she, more than Martin, was behind RR being hired.
|10 weeks 13 hours ago||I understand some peoples point.||
Tickets, especially season tickets, cost more than $1.50 each (20 oz cokes are usually 2 for $3 in my area).
|10 weeks 1 day ago||We learned not so much in||
We learned not so much in BLL. The ND AD was a pain to deal with that Martin put up with for the sake of the series. Brandon didn't appreciate the series (he thought MSU was a bigger game, despite the evidence presented to him), and the other ADs didn't like him. Also, Brandon trusted the last deal with ND & didn't negotiate like he should have, again despite advice otherwise. So ND might have walked anyways, but Brandon made it easier.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||"Do these make my hips look wide?"||
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Yes.||
According to BLL, the football uniformz were all on Brandon. Adidas wasn't any happier with him than the fans were - it cost them to come up with prototypes of his stupid ideas. So it's not a stretch to think that he was involved with the basketball uniformz too.
|11 weeks 15 hours ago||And the coaches also had Brandon tsk tsking about the team's||
Culture. Read what the fired tennis coach had to say in BLL. Then think about some of the comments on here last year about country club, softness, etc. per bacon, only 4 coaches escaped Brandon's "help" and hoke wasn't one of them.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Well, when you come in & and announce to your staff that||
you intend to fire 100 of them, it's a little understandable if you come off as a bad guy.
Brandon gets kudos for how he handles stretchgate, for giving Hagerup one more chance, the student-athletes like him, there's a regent who still speaks highly of him, and I think it's his secretary who thinks he's a good guy. Its just that there is so much negative stuff that outweighs that.
Brandon had multiple chances to provide input to the book, and chose not too.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||I've started reading BLL.||
I've started reading BLL. Part of the reason Hoke's salary is so high is that Brandon didn't negotiate Hoke's salary before he hired him, so Brandon could imitate Canham's press conference when he hired Bo. So Hoke's agent had the better negotiating position.

At least General Mills is based in Minnesota. And it's not like athletes on cereal boxes aren't already done. Chobani is based in NY.

But it is consistent with Brandon's "firing Friday"
|12 weeks 6 days ago||He was also on Michigan radio.||
About 18 minutes, which you can hear on their website. Several stories, including the truth about the noodle.
|13 weeks 6 hours ago||The Tigers website, too.||
Argh! No respect for the game.
|13 weeks 6 hours ago||At one time Nicolas Cage could.||
Not sure if he could today though.

I'd have no problem with this. But he was turning his nose up at donated flights.

1/20/11. And states "This has been rumored for weeks, and confirmed, in part, by David Brandon at the Brady Hoke introductory presser"
