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?
|20 weeks 4 days ago||What about Sumlin? I know||
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.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||Because the current coach||
Because the current coach isn't working? "Plan C" - at least in my opinion - just means unproven.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||I've been saying this for the||
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.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||That's what they said about||
That's what they said about Texas, Florida, and USC and neither we're able to land their top choice.
|20 weeks 5 days ago||I would love Harbaugh or||
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.
|20 weeks 6 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'm getting the same pole (that's what she said).

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 cinnamon something-or-whatever and the gingerbread ale are pretty good acually...and I like their winter ale.

|29 weeks 4 days ago||The reality of the situation||
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.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||According to Rivals... Coming||
According to Rivals...
Coming off a 11-2 B1G title year...OSU's class was #26
Coming off of an apperance in the title game...LSU's class was #18
Oklahoma and Georgia have not recurited top 10 classes in over 3 years
The year before they played in the title game...the Domers had the #20 class.
My point is that consistantly hauling in top 5 (hell, top 10) classes is extremely difficult and rare. One low ranked class (due primarily because of numbers crunch) does not signal the end of the world.

well just for context, this was a tackle drill I believe and the same commentators were saying they think his natural fit is at RT.
