"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

Here's a solution with a Michigan Football story...
So when I was 10 I was fortunate enough to be able to go out to Pasadena for the '97 Rose Bowl. After eating dinner at Wolf Gang Puck, I woke up on gameday with a stomach bug that had me puking up Four Seasons pancakes.
Regardless, we ventured to the Rose Bowl to take in the pre-game festivities. After a while the stomach thing got worse and I had to lie down. My dad, who was always full of weird solutions to things, went around to tailgaters to get two cups and some Coke. Apparently the first tailgate he found with Coke made him proove his allegiance to the Wolverines before helping him out - luckily he succeeded. You pour the coke back and forth until its flat and drink it flat (its the syrup I think).
By the time kick-off rolled around I was good to go...short story long, flat coke works.

As a Maryland resident (who grew up in NJ) I feel like I should point out that Marylanders are oddly obsessed with their state flag. I'll admit it, it's cool looking, but that's why those jerseys exist.

I had Opus wine at a Christmas dinner a couple years ago which goes for like $250 a bottle and I can honestly say I prefer Yellowtail which is like $12 for a double-bottle. The Opus wine was almost too smooth, it had no flavor.

Huge Ranger fan here...I don't think there is anyone on the team who gives more effort every shift than Hagelin.

DC brewery called DC Brau took over the tap tonight at my local store so I'm drinking their scotch ale.

Didn't Je'Ron Stokes switch his commitment from Tenn to UM on NSD? If I recall correctly, he was like the 8th ranked WR in the class or something like that.

So does this mean the qoute from yesterdays "Searchbits: XII" about guys like Mora, Stoops, and Mullen being out of it isnt true?

He said the tweet about Belicheck was a joke he assumed everyone would get.

I don't mean to kill the positive vibes...but I used to listen to the Herd regularly and remember him making a similar claim about Floridas last coaching search.

I could be wrong...but wasn't the whole bidding war for Cam Newtons services between Auburn and MSU?

What about Sumlin? I know he's not on the same level of the coaches you just named but I guess that would depend on the writer's definition of "Tier 1".
Wasn't there some story about Brandon interviewing Sumlin in '07? (probably BS).

Solid Hire. He would have been my favorite Plan-C type hire.

Because the current coach isn't working? "Plan C" - at least in my opinion - just means unproven.

I've been saying this for the last two days...everytime one of the big name program HC jobs opens up, the fans/media speculate about A-list candidates and it almost never happens.
I think a lot of UM fans should come to terms with the idea of landing a "Plan C" level guy and they should be OK with that.
Harbaugh would be ideal, but he's not the only guy out there who can lead this program back to prominence.

Here we go again...Hugh Freeze agrees to an extension and raise to stay at OM.

That's what they said about Texas, Florida, and USC and neither we're able to land their top choice.

I would love Harbaugh or Miles, but I'm not getting my hopes up. Whenever these big name jobs open up people speculate all of these top coaches moving around and it never happens.
|25 weeks 4 days ago||Patterson and Whittingham is||
Patterson and Whittingham is just my non-Harbaugh wishlisht. I don't think either of them are coming.
RE: McElwain - I think fans to come to terms with the idea of neither Harbaugh, Miles, Mullen, or any other candidate in those top two tiers coming to UM. You look at the hot coaching candidates these days like Sumlin, Briles, Mullen, Gundy...instead of trying to pry them from their current/established position, go find the next guy whose on his way.
So when you look at that crop of candidates, guys like McElwain, Chuck Martin, Frost, Herman, Doeren...I prefer McElwain. I like that he learned from Saban and has CSU trending upward. I like that his offense fits the current personnel and that it's effective. CSU's offense was at the bottom of the barrel and after one transition year they've been top 20 the past two seasons. I think he's projecting to be a successful coach in college football.

I said this in the "if hoke is retained" thread...waiting until the team meeting made the most sense of the situation and explains why the AD has been quiet and why it has been business as usual in Ann Arbor today.

I obviously have no idea but if I am going to stick with my theory...a series of last minute cancelations would get all the spectators and commentators buzzing.

The reality of the situation is that no school pulls coaches from those types of positions. For some reason people always want to assume that people will just jump ship for the slightest improvement in "prestige" but it rarely happens.

I think if Shane can be more decisive in his reads and accurate with the quick throws than DG has been lately it might help to keep the defense honest.

That's a sack and a half better than Clowney...just saying, sacks aren't the only measurement of success even for a pass rusher.
