He "could care less" what you think.

Oh, sure. It's totally believable that gruden would walk away from $16 million per year, double what any other football coach has EVER MADE.
|1 week 2 days ago||Dec. 29.||
|1 week 2 days ago||Might not even be the best tag line from that quote.||
I like "My opponent is going to have to die." Maybe we change it to that right before the MSU game.
|1 week 2 days ago||Really?||
I assumed the NCAA would hire Jim Tressel for that job.
|1 week 2 days ago||"I could care less."||
This guy writes for a living.
|1 week 2 days ago||Lochmann was ousted for two simple reasons:||
1. The position for which he was hired is not needed, so he added no value.
2. He was causing obvious harm to the department, both in his frequent and misguided marketing ploys and in his overt dismissal of the importance of former student athletes.
Anyone who fits either of these descriptions, let alone both, should find themselves sitting on the curb on State St. next to the box that contains the contents of their desk.
|1 week 5 days ago||Here's what I don't get about the "trade" scenarios:||
Harbaugh knows that he's not wanted in his current job, and that he can pretty much write his own ticket in terms of the jobs that will be open this offseason. Why would he agree to a trade in which he would go to a team that has to give up multiple high-value draft picks to get him, plus not necessarily have the choice of which team he would go to, when he could just wait for the 49ers to fire him and get to both pick the team, drive up the financial price, and inherit a team with (in Oakland's case) a top-5 draft pick?
I don't see Harbaugh getting traded. The Raiders are potentially dumb enough, but it would also require Harbaugh to a) want to go to Oakland, and b) be as dumb as the Raiders.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Not his fault.||
It was more of a cock-up on our part.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Shit happens.||
This is a high-variance team due to youth and reliance on jumpers. When one of your best players can't hit a shot, when the other team is hitting 3's falling out of bounds with a hand in their face and makes all of their free throws, sometimes you're going to lose games you should win.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||This.||
If nothing else, we have made a massive upgrade at AD. Of course, I have a large rock in my front yard that would have been better than Brandon, but I'm glad someone is finally pointing out what Bo was referring to when he said "Michigan Man."
|3 weeks 3 days ago||That Oregon stat is a good sign for us going forward.||
I think Oregon put a big emphasis on closing out shooters and preventing open 3's, and we responded really well with drives to the basket that resulted in fouls. If we were a team of "just a shooter"s that wouldn't have been possible, but guys like Levert, Irvin and Walton showed some great ability to get to the basket and either score or draw a foul. It looks like a better way to defend us is to concede some open shots and hope we miss, which worked for Villanova in the first half.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I think you spelled that wrong.||
|3 weeks 4 days ago||If you have a pet named "Brady",||
get a second named "Fire".
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Baylor should be ahead of OSU too.||
They beat TCU, and their only loss was to a ranked team on the road (West Virginia).
This will, however, become a moot point after Melvin Gordon racks up another 200 yards rushing on OSU and Wisconsin wins.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||He gone.||
Funchess doesn't want to stay here, and I don't really want him to either at this point. He'll get drafted on the third day as a late-round flier based on his size and (theoretical) ability to be a flex TE. Some team is going to write this year off as a fluke based on bad team, bad qb, etc., but if he stays and has another year like this one, he won't get drafted at all.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Edsall is a douche.||
He has now taken up, in my mind, the mantle of "Coach of a mediocre Big Ten team that I irrationally loathe and hope bad things happen to" that once belonged to Danny Hope at Purdue.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Dave Brandon-style idea:||
Let's have it at 1 am to avoid press attention.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||No.||
You were not.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Sludge sludge sludge.||
Fart fart fart.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||You had subs?||
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Brandon without douchiness and corporateness?||
I can't even imagine what that would mean. That takes away his two most defining characteristics. Here are some similar statements:
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Every time I see the Personnel diagram,||
I think "wow, we sure have a lot of inverted stars and not a lot of upright ones.". It's nice to have graphical representations of how ineffective the coaching is.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||I don't know if it was in question before,||
but yes, many thought it was ridiculous. Because it is.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Good question.||
I imagine that if this loophole were to exist, it would break the scholarship system. Bag men would bid on the 5-star athletes to come to their school as a walk-on, then pay them their education plus a healthy stipend. If they have the money to blow on Saban's house, they can spend $700K a year on 10 or so players' tuitions and salaries.
|9 weeks 10 hours ago||"wow hymen"||
Dave Brandon's favorite kind.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Nothing came up in their search?||
I'm really surprised that you didn't get a bunch of email chains that happened to have the phrase "without you" somewhere in them. It's not like it's an uncommon turn of phrase. Something like:
"Dear absurdly generous donor,
We are throwing a big party for absurdly generous people, and we would hate to have this party without you. Please RSVP and send an absurdly large check.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Disagree.||
The question is whether he was still in the act of making the catch. Once he is able to turn and attempt to put the ball past the sticks, the "catch" is over. He lost control a fraction of a second after that, but the key word there is "after." Per item 3, he maintained control of the ball long enough to perform an act common to the game (and actually did perform such an act).
Here's an excellent question for the refs: How is this not a catch, but Roundtree's catch to end UTL I was confirmed as a catch? Darboh had the ball longer and turned upfield, and didn't lose the ball until he hit the ground. Roundtree started to lose the ball as he fell, but regained control out of bounds before hitting the ground. So he completed the catch, but out of bounds. Based on this, if Darboh had lost control without the ball hitting the ground, then recaught it out of bounds, that makes it a catch? Apparently this is all true according to the rules and how it has been interpreted by referees. So either the referees or wrong, or this is a really stupidly worded rule. Or both.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Brady says we practiced well.||
So we've got that going for us. Which is nice.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||It's about 15 years old.||
The vast majority of my HS students haven't seen it. So the humor of my red Swingline stapler is lost on them, unfortunately.
