Please define "extraordinary" here. Like, literally, beyond ordinary? Like way different than what is to be expected? Okay, I can get on board with that.
Please explain what is difficult about the times. I know you don't mean difficult as in didn't have the full support of the entire fanbase when he took the job. I know you don't mean difficult as in doesn't have the best facilities and material support in college football. I know you don't mean difficult as in doesn't have top-level talent year after year. So, are we talking difficult like he is dying from self-inflicted wounds? Like he fucked up so bad that everyone wants him to take a hike? Difficult like he borrowed his dad's car, crashed it, and now is in the difficult situation of getting grounded and having his license taken away? Okay, I can get on board with that.

Getting a new coach will help recruiting. Any coach. There's always buzz and the promise of at least three or four years of program stability.

They're not doing anything wrong! They're good kids, and they work their butts off in practice. They're all special and have all, at one point or another, had their best week of practice.

It would be a huge mistake for an NFL team to draft Funchess on the first two days. Maybe at all.

I imagine Mikey watching this shit game like all the rest of us fans and, after the last four possessions, just saying, "fuck that, I'm done."
I would've decommited a long time ago.

Was he waiting to see what happened on that Maryland drive before making the call?

Trailing Minnesota 30-7 at home with eight minutes left in the game would be the point at which the producer guffaws and throws the script away.

You seriously typed "Albrecht" instead of just "Spike"?

I was mostly being a smart ass. Although, Devin Gardner, Shane Morris, Blake Countess, and some others might actually have something to say about this.

Had the same dream a couple of weeks ago. Confirmed true then.

This is predicated on the assumption that coaches can only add value and not make players worse.

I wouldn't be so sure. We'll see.

We have two running backs with more rushing yards on the season than Melvin Gordon got today! Eat it, Melvin Gordon!

We're better than Notre Dame! Woo hoo!

Jim Harbaugh used to jog around the block with a fridge on his back!
|1 week 2 days ago||When you set the bar so||
When you set the bar so unfathomably low as we did to start the season, improvement is more regression to the mean than it is something to hang your hat on. Our "improvement" has resulted in us being still well below the level anyone expected us to be to begin the season.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yes, and let's be clear: he||
Yes, and let's be clear: he has not had a good finish up to this point. He is not on a roll. He beat a shit Indiana team at home and should have lost to a shit Northwestern team. If he beats Maryland and loses to OSU, that's not a good finish either. A good finish involves beating a good team.
All that said, even if he does have a "good finish," like you said, it doesn't matter. There is no finish that can balance the start to this season.

Yeah, there were a lot of little deaths along the way, but Minnesota was the big death.

I'm sad for him, too, but he only has himself to blame. He would've been a great fit if he were a big-time coach, but he's proven he's not. He's shown to be over his head as much as his position coaches. He had near unanimous fanbase support, great momentum from a spectacular--if lucky--first season, and recruiting success. An he did nothing with it.

It's well known that we hired Schlissel to attract Harbaugh.

Jim Harbaugh's poop is considered currency in Argentina!
|1 week 3 days ago||I know that back when I was||
I know that back when I was at U-M, before the Supreme Court eliminated the strict point-based admissions scheme, you could get a bunch of points for "extraordinary talent" or something like that. If I remember right, you needed about 120 points to get accepted, you got like 80 points for a 4.0 GPA, 40 points for a perfect ACT score, underrepresented county got you 10 points, etc. The extraordinary talent bit netted you like 30 points, almost enough to offset standardized test scores. In theory, that talent could be many things: athletic ability, musical virtuosity, scientific genius. Idea being that a richer intellectual and social environment results from having a bunch of people together who are the best at what they do.

Did I ever tell you about the time I went horseback riding with Jim Harbaugh, but there weren't any horses around? Well, Harbaugh throws a saddle on my back and rides me around Wyoming for three days. Well wouldn't you know it my stamina increases with each day, and I develop tremendous leg muscles. So anyway, Harbaugh decides to enter me in the Breeders Cup, right? Under the name Turkish Delight. And I'm running in second place, and I'm running, and I break my ankle. They're about to shoot me, when someone from the crowd yells out, God bless him, "Don't shoot him, he's a human!"
Jim Harbaugh is a son of a bitch!

Correction: We're still looking for a road win over a team with a winning record in the regular season.
|1 week 3 days ago||Huh? Four years ago, Brennan||
Huh? Four years ago, Brennan Boesch hit .283 with 16 homers, so why isn't he the starting left fielder for the TIgers this spring?
Oh, because that happened four years ago.
