If I wanted to prove how good a football coach I was, I'd probably stay where I'd won 93% of my games (including a national championship), where I'd hand-picked dozens of players and coaches for years to create my ideal program, and where I have the option to fire the university president if I choose.

I saw it last night, and I didn't notice what Melissa McCarthy's character's alma mater was (maybe I missed it). But in one scene you do clearly see Kristen Wiig's character with a umich diploma.
Given some of their back-story, it's possible both characters went to UM.

It gets a bad rep for tragic reasons, but it feels normal at night. Parents send teenagers to live there by the thousands, and there's uniformed security on every other corner.
The coaching situation is the bigger problem at SC.

Could see him taking the VT job, or maybe SC.
(South Carolina, not USC. USC will likely aim higher).

The thing is though, we had the lead on the last play of the game. Offense didn't drop a snap. Defense didn't drop a snap. Coaching didn't drop a snap. Refs didn't drop a snap. That play was fluke, a 1/500 occurrence (based on ESPN's 99.8 percent win probability), but our whole team put us in a position to win and our punter bobbled a decent snap.

Mostly just good to see Utah playing well because it takes some of the sting out of that opener. Arizona's also getting blown out at home. Lots of entertaining games out West tonight.

UCLA isn't really Los Angeles, regardless of zip code.

Does any other school treat their football coach like an endowed chair?

Truman = the only true man. Alone in authenticity.
His friend's name is Marlon, and his wife's name is Meryl -- both named after iconic film actors.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||Their Wisconsin picks caught my eye||
They all think the Badgers lose by 3-8 points. Vegas predicts 10.5. I'd guess 13 for a new coach against Saban in Texas.
|1 year 8 weeks ago||But it sounds like he'd need a few years of work||
to raise him up to the level of a Harbaugh QB recruit.

Principally for actions he took to address both the Vietnam War and the Watergate Scandal.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||The home run hire thing||
is just a bad question. Everyone knows Harbaugh is the best hire Michigan could have gotten -- trying to make Hoke publicly say so, too, is just demeaning. A pointless grab for headline fodder.
"Sorry your wife left you. But isn't her new husband fantastic? Won't he do a swell job raising your kids?"

My reply was to a comment no longer here. I did not reply to the math pun.

Talks about balance of academics and athletics.

I like the novelty of that one. I'm curious enough to tune in.

By far, my favorite screwball comedy about a guy raising a fake baby.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Disagree with your first point||
The last US News and World Report ranking of national universities had Stanford tied for 4th (with Columbia and Chicago), USC tied for 25th (with Carnegie Mellon), and Michigan at 29.
College rankings are only really meaningful to a point, but saying USC cannot match the free world class education Michigan offers is just uninformed.
Points 2, 3, 7 and 10 make a lot of sense, though.

your standard for an imperfect male specimen? Just curious.

that most of this year's recruiting class hadn't even been born when President Marshall liberated Air Force One from those terrorists in 1997.

It's just someone who spends lavishly; the word itself has nothing to do with going away and returning.
