The problem is that Chris Singletary is one of Webb's sources. So if Webb bad-mouths the coaching staff or says they're going to get fired, he's going to piss off Singletary and/or others. Webb needs inside info to do his job well, so he has to walk a fine line.
It's like a lot of things. There are certain things about which Webb should be trusted (recruiting, mainly), and there are certain things about which he probably shouldn't be (coaching changes, for example).

Just based on the thread title, I thought this was going to include some very bad news for Oregon.

Jim Harbaugh needs to buy up a few of those unused tickets so he can keep the 100,000 streak going into his first year as our coach.

Nah. They were just angry about Blimpy Burger.

You have to admit that his record is pretty impressive. I mean, you have to teach them without talking. And when they screw up, you can't even yell at them!

There are a bunch of Baltimore (MD) Gilman players expected to visit, too:

Eh, I'm not very impressed. I mean, I'm not 100% up to speed with what level of talent Mississippi State normally recruits. Virgil isn't really "reading" defenses. He's doing some very simple option reads, or he knows where he's going with the ball pre-snap. He doesn't go through progressions. I also think he makes some really bad decisions that end up turning out well for him just because the high school safety or linebacker on the other team is bad at football. He makes some poor reads in the run game and the pass game.
Anyway, I think the kid is a 3-star for a reason. I would not argue for him being ranked any higher. Of course, that's no reason to yank his scholarship in late November. If you don't like his athletic abilities, you shouldn't offer him in the first place.

In fairness to Michigan, though...that 2010 class was terribly unproductive. I think out of the 27 players they signed, only Tacopants's little brother, Burritoshorts, was left after two seasons. And nobody wants Burritoshorts.

Both of them agreed to grayshirt and ended up starting off with scholarships.

Don't forget Ty Issac.
I saw a mod at one of the pay sites spell his name "Issac" the other day, so I now have even less respect for him.

The snow/cold weather is cold for about 10 minutes. After that I pretty much forget about it.

Snowy games are the second-best kinds of games.
The best football weather is about 50 degrees - not too hot, not too cold when you're running around.

Well, it doesn't help that Michigan is missing its best two running backs (Derrick Green and Ty Isaac) and the quarterback can't pass the ball and the receivers can't get open.

"The UFR is not about what Hoke thinks rather it is about what fans think. I can't imagine fans are seriously listening to Hoke to shape their opinions on the performance of the players and team...not at this point at least."
My point is that it would be interesting to see whether Hoke's statement would agree with the UFR. I don't even always agree with Brian, but it would at least be discussion-worthy.
|2 days 18 hours ago||On a serious note, Hoke did||
On a serious note, Hoke did say that he thought the Northwestern game was the offensive line's best game this year. So while we might think it was a crapfest overall, there might be some indications that the offensive line is getting better.

Where do you think all that student ticket money went? David Brandon funneled it to MGoBlog to allow us all to keep reading for free. WOTS is that Jim Hackett is reducing the price of water but instituting membership fees for the right to read Darker Blue's complaints and get inside info from RDT.
