Just to enhance that mental image...
Wikipedia: Lobster Thermidor is a French dish consisting of a creamy mixture of cooked lobster meat, egg yolks, and brandy (often cognac), stuffed into a lobster shell. It can also be served with an oven-browned cheese crust, typically Gruyère. The sauce must contain mustard (typically powdered mustard).
And for good measure...

The legacy number "program" is a classic example of overreach. The cons outweigh the honorable intent. Find another way.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Big YES to the uniform||
Big YES to the uniform suggestions (no to the legacy numbers).
Think home jersey, but blue on white.
The various undershirts, pads, sleaves, etc. should be solid jersey color, with no unnecessary pattern/stripe/"MICHIGAN" (clutter) on them. Anything else is not uniform.
Busy, inconsistent, and cluttered is a missed opportunity.
Simple, consistent, and clean is powerful, unifying, and classic (yet timeless).

That bit from Brian the other day about a 49ers coach's wife saying UM fans will be really happy. Seemed like a genuine, agenda-less, and inside comment.

Perhaps Mattison stays on as a position coach? I think he's a good guy to have on the staff, but maybe not directing the D. In four years, that attacking, aggressive, dominant D I was expecting from him just never developed.
|4 days 15 hours ago||Totally agree. Also, I don't||
Totally agree. Also, I don't know the stats, but it sure seemed (by far) that the most frequent O-drive killer was some mistake by the QB: bad incompletion, failure to hit open secondary receiver, unnecessary sack, turnover.
Hard to score when you can't sustain drives. You can blame QB preparedness on Nuss if you'd like, but it seemed he was just asking for some basic game management competence, which these QB's fell way short of delivering with any consistency. I put it more on the QBs. If we'd consistently had a respectably accurate QB with a cool head this year, things would have been much different.

Funk had the OL for four years. In year three they sucked, which many (myself included) attributed more to AB's scheme-of-the-week. But I still was not at all impressed with

Rest assured that the next coach will have complete autonomy over their staff.
|6 days 2 hours ago||The saddest thing about||
The saddest thing about "journalism" today is what's NOT reported. Virtually NOBODY but Fox reports anything about the IRS scandal (one example). You don't have to spin news that's negative toward your agenda if you simply choose not to report it.

I think it's more accurate (and less harsh?) to say you become a billionaire by making smart business decisions.

|2 weeks 21 hours ago||So Addazio >> Mullen?||
So Addazio >> Mullen? Dude.
Mullen is an attractive candidate for the very reason with which you are unimpressed. Doing what he did with that talent requires good coaching. I don't think oversigning is relevant to this discussion, but if you do, then consider that their tough games this year were against other oversigning SEC teams.

Oregon's margin over FSU will be greater than Bama's over OSU.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||NE, as you accurately assess,||
NE, as you accurately assess, does not contain any CFB fans (aside from transplants) and therefore there's little knowledge of CFB. I assume this is not the case where you are now (or you'd have mentioned that?). So why would you agree that that's the case nationally?
Patriot games are always a party though.

That honestly made me laugh - but then I thought 0-2...sad times for UM football. Still funny though.

I hope to see him direct that very gesture across the field toward UFM every year in late November.

Do you really care Tomcat?
Just be thankful there was an "OT" prefix on that title, to help you deduce that this is OT, so that you could make an informed decision of your own free will to click that link, and were not otherwise fooled by that title into thinking this was a UM sports related post.

How about inserting something like "This is the first reply to a mod-removed comment." Simple, easy, helpful.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||This idea that attrition||
This idea that attrition occurs if a disciplinarian is hired may seem logical, but I think it is a shallow assumption. These kids are craving discipline. They know when/if they are getting away with something, and deep down they resent it. I don't think you'll see any attrition should such a staff be in their future. I think you'd see a very positive reaction.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Regarding the first question||
Regarding the first question to him about current recruits - he seems a bit clueless there.
He hasn't thought about contacting recruits(!!!), but apparently thinks the best approach is to support the coaches because they own their point of view...you know, the coaches that will NOT be coaching these recruits in the future. Does he understand the dynamics of that situation?
I would think at least a "Hi Johnny, I know things seem a little chaotic right now, but rest assured, we are going to get a top-flight head coach..." is better than nothing.
I realize you gotta release the coaches first, or the recruits will light up the twittersphere, that they are "officially" being fired, but...he hasn't thought about it? Maybe I'm being a bit harsh in that that's a tough answer to give at this point, but it just sounded clueless - and meanwhile our commits are vanishing.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||I saw that - You know he's||
I saw that - You know he's put out the stealth feelers to Harbaugh, perhaps Miles? I thinik he's got at least one sutiable option already lined up. He looks like he has a secret he can't wait to unload.

Especially if Ross provides him a private jet for the duration of his UM coaching stint.

If up to the fans, he'd be gone. I gotta think they'd be as happy keeping him, as we'd be hiring him.

What's dumb is your reading comprehension. What he said is true, and had nothing to do with the availability of QBs.

Dude, what's your problem. Sam1863 makes no claim to coining the phrase, and actually presents it like it's a known saying.
