I was surprised as you, and then I remembered that this is the same team that gave Jay Cutler 15.5 million, so why shouldn't they also make puzzling backup QB decisions?

I laughed because it's true. Also, Dan Snyder.

The #1 rush defense in the league says go ahead and pound it with Forte.

I sort of want him to coach the team in spring practice and recruit and stuff. I know it's asking a lot.

I feel like Bob Stitt is the Naked Guy Banner of coaching candidates.

Are they? I'd be curious to learn the mechanics of that. I'm sort of a mutt of Western European heritage, mainly Irish and French, some German and Polish, except that the Polish part is also French in a roundabout way. I don't know where any Jewishness would've had a chance to find its way in.

I'm not even close to being Jewish..... but sour cream forever, applesauce never.

B is impossible, as a win in Chicago clinches a playoff berth. If any 11-5 team misses the playoffs, Dallas seems the most likely.

I mean, after that, there was nobody around to tell me to go to bed, so I forgot.

The playoff machine seems to be under the impression that GB owns the tiebreaker even if they were to lose to TB.... but I don't think it's right. The oracle is apparently fallible. Unless I'm missing something.

Good thing we're all so good at that.

Meh. I don't think they exist.

DD did flat out say the rotation is settled. It looks like they're letting Scherzer walk for sure. Presumably they made the qualifying offer necessary to get the draft pick when he signs elsewhere.

Every time Dombrowski tries to land relief help it blows up on him. Krol didn't pan out too well and people complained that it wasn't enough for Fister anyway.

Top 5, heck, it sounds like both are saying he'll be the highest-paid coach in the league. And deserving of every penny.

"We had a great practice today and we continue to work really hard."
|1 week 2 days ago||That Gruden thing is||
That Gruden thing is certainly a wonderful lesson in reading between the lines. "Initial contact between the parties" is a fun way of obscuring who dialed up whom.
|1 week 2 days ago||I thought I read somewhere||
I thought I read somewhere that those can't actually be used anymore because of an NCAA rule that requires the numbers to be centered.
|1 week 2 days ago||Nobody would pay money for a||
One would certainly think, except that Gene Keady used to spend $600 a week on hair extensions for his unbelievable bad combover. Anything is possible.
|1 week 3 days ago||I get the impression that||
I get the impression that nobody ever delivers bad news to any member of the Davis family. That haircut and/or incredibly shitty toupee is proof of someone who long ago sent the message "criticize me and I will destroy you."

#1, if a coach has been coaching the same offense for 20 years, why would you expect it's easy for him to suddenly change that? #2, the point about "support" is totally off. It's not about Joe Schmo cheering from three-quarters of the way up the bleachers.
|1 week 3 days ago||Ohio State fans were||
Ohio State fans were definitely this obsessed over getting Urbz, except that Urbz was conveniently unemployed when they needed a new coach and so there wasn't any need for speculation over his current job status. The moment Fickell was named interim coach they assumed he was just keeping the seat warm for Urbz.

Yes, it should expand to 8 to protect the hurt feelings of those who got left out. Then it should expand to 16 to protect the hurt feelings of those who got left out. Then it should expand to 24 to protect the hurt feelings of those who got left out. Controversy is bad, and we should always try to avoid it by expanding the tournament.

I irrationally want to keep Porcello for a very long time, which has everything to do with the fact that he started so young that if he sticks around for another 10 years (after which he'd be just 35) he'd be really high on all the Tigers' career lists.
Alas, it seems as if the possibility exists right now for a Porcello-for-Cespedes trade.

So, out goes the centerpiece of the Fister trade?
|1 week 6 days ago||You could have said the same||
And Phil Knight money is coming to Mississippi State any minute now.
Also, you just called Michigan a downgrade from Mississippi State. There's something deeply bizarre about that.
|2 weeks 4 hours ago||Roy Williams is more of an||
Roy Williams is more of an administrator than a coach. He can certainly assemble talent (not hard at UNC) but he doesn't do a great job of fitting the talent together or into his system. And his players don't develop a hell of a lot. What you see as a freshman is more or less what you get. I've heard it said, for example, that Nate Britt could be a bona fide star in the right system, but he's not the kind of player Roy is asking him to be, and James Michael McAdoo was going to be the next great Carolina star, but fizzled out pretty awfully.
|2 weeks 21 hours ago||So I'm nowhere near as down||
So I'm nowhere near as down on the idea of Addazio as all that. Is he Plan A - hell no. Definitely not on that top tier of guys. But as a Plan B, if we swung and missed on the five or six reasonable options in Plan A (thinking Harbaugh, Miles, Mullen, Gundy, Stoops, and such) he'd be solid and very defensible - probably more so than McElwain. Addazio definitely isn't Brady Hoke - he's taken a Boston College team full of the two-star and low-three-star barrel scrapings of the northeast, which was last seen going 2-10 under Frank Spaziani, and gotten to bowl games. Beating USC in the process and putting a huge scare into FSU twice. His BC resume is much more impressive than Hoke's Ball State and SDSU work, frankly.
I'd be disappointed in getting Addazio because he's not Harbaugh, but if we swing and miss at the bigger guys, we could do much worse as a consolation prize.

LOL. This should really help dispel the Nebraska players' fears that their AD is trying to hire all his Wisconsin buddies.
