First Nik & GRIII and now this????
Thanks a lot Obama.

To be fair though they WERE announcing they are leaving school so maybe the Athletic Department no longer considereds them one of their own.

You're doing a pretty good job of keeping in character Batman but the best...the absolute BEST was the brief, but brilliant posting career of Terrelle Pryor. That guy was absolutely spot on and funny as Hell.
Never thought I'd say these words but I miss internet Terrelle Pryor.

I find it a bit ironic that on the day our basketball team will (probably) lose two prominent starters (40% of the line-up) to the NBA I am filled with nothing but confidence for the future because I believe we have the single best coach in the NCAA on our sidelines. I have supreme faith in his abilitiies to find and recruit the right players, to get the very most out of them he can through his coaching and put a system in place that maximizes the talents of the players he has - not a system he's comfortable in running. Lose two star players? No big deal - next man up!
Contrast that with the football team where I have almost zero confidence in the HC to do any of those things other than recruit. When I read that article by White I was laughing to myself thinking "I sure hope all the Borges apologists see this" cause he nailed it. And the question that I kept asking is how in the hell did Hoke allow this to happen? I guess in some ways it's validating to know you arent the only one who thought our offense last year was run by a crazy person but it sure doesnt make me feel any bettter about what's coming this fall.

You mean the posse of people under the age of 25 who have a net worth in excess of 1MM and earn several hundred thousand dollars a year to play a game? That posse?

Unfortunately I think the fans of 13 other schools in the B1G will be thrilled at the outcome of the press conference.

Would it though? If I remember last year's bitch-a-thon about the offense correctly I was told that organizationally Funk doesnt report to the OC - he reports to Hoke. So while he'd be playing in Nuss's offense, he'd be coached by Funk.
And I'm not entirely sure that's as thrilling for a top-shelf player as we'd like it to be.

Are you kidding? Go to the original Dumars thread or any other on the Pistons and read the Last Hoke's comments.
|1 day 13 hours ago||I expect us to have a good,||
I expect us to have a good, but not great team that will win more games than expected given the quality of our coaching staff and the players remaining. I expect us to to both win and lose with class and dignity, I expect us to beat Sparty twice again and I expect us to finish in the top half of the B1G standings and make the tourny. I expect us to win at least our first game in the dance and maybe even make it to week #2.
I expect those things cause I think we have the finest basketball coach in America on our sidelines and I have the utmost faith in his abilities to recruit, build and lead our basketball team.

(Insert comment here about how Burke actually sucks and that KCP is really much, much better than it seems by quoting some obscure basketball stat that nobody's ever heard of or uses and that Dumars actually did the right thing by drafting him)

To be fair-didnt the world's fastest car/cat also have a spur of the moment dice spin? It's their acheles heal to be honest.
Talk about a moment he will NEVER live down. Everywhere that guy goes for the rest of his life somebody's gonna say to themselves "hey....isn't that the dumbass from Wheel of Fortune over there?"
|1 day 19 hours ago||I hold them up for the exact||
I hold them up for the exact reason you state. We DON'T KNOW what happened with Bullough and Dantonio's answer effectively ended the discussion. It doesnt matter if he was suspended for having too many overdue library books or for being a serial killer - Dantonio's answer was perfect IMO for addressing the problem (Bullough's off team) without saying anything other than they were sad.
I bring it up because it's a wonderful example of how to do things right. Which we clearly did not do.
Why is that bizarre? Because State did it?
|1 day 19 hours ago||Exactly right. And somebody||
Exactly right. And somebody please tell me why Hoke couldn't have said something like this for example:
"In a news release sent early Thursday, Spartans coach Mark Dantonio said Bullough had been suspended for the rest of the season. He did not say what rules the two-time team captain violated.
''It is extremely disappointing for all parties involved,'' Dantonio said.
Looks to me like Dantonio got it perfect while we fucked it up royally. Saying it was due to "family matters" insinuates something far, far less than what it turned out to be and gives at least temporary cover where none was warranted or deserved.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Let me clarify my point.||
Let me clarify my point. What I was suggesting was that the perception of a cover-up (whether real or simply imagined) on the part of the media is bad. Which is why I prefaced the remark with asking if anyone knew if the 60 minutes report was accurate.
I was not trying to equate his coaching skills to this situation. Rather simply trying to put in context the crap he's been taking for the failure of the team on the field will be insignicant PR-wise to the impending shit storm that will break if, in fact, 60 Minutes does a report insunating a departmental cover-up.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Wow. Does anybody know if||
Wow. Does anybody know if the rumor that 60 minutes was interviewing DB on this issue is true?
If so and if the allegation that Hoke "knowingly issued false statements" are true then our inability to block anyone on the line may be the least of his worries.

If you find him see if Dymonte Thomas is using the same hiding spot.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I agree on your positives,||
I agree on your positives, your negatives and your zero faith in the coaches. I also agree on 7-6 as a likely outcome given that blocking in general doesnt seem to be something we have the ability to execute.
I really liked the Nuss hire but I fear we've just created "Gerg - the sequel" as we've saddled him with the same support staff Borges had (just like Rich did with Robinson). When I look at Funk I see Hoke's version of Tony Gibson - a buddy who simply cannot coach but keeps his job cause he's the HC's long-time friend.
And just like Gibson brought down Rich and made Robinson look like a complete idiot (funny how he did NOT look so bad in Texas) I fear Funk will do the same to Hoke.

While I agree with you does that mean we're now on the verge of creating a "who's the best writer on mGoBlog" controversy?
Brian (the incumbent) V BiSB (the plucky challenger)
Seems like all the elements that BiSB outline in the piece are there.
EDIT : Beaten to the punch a few posts down. Great minds thinking alike and all that.

In case anybody was wondering I may or may not also enter the upcoming NBA draft.

I'm confused. Will this agent help Nik select his upcoming Junior class schedule or was he retained to help him find suitable off-campus housing? Or perhaps he was secured to help NIk find gainful employment this summer.
Why else would he need one?
|6 days 13 hours ago||Who do you think will win||
Who do you think will win more games the balance of their careers at their current respective schools-Hoke or RR? If I had to bet I'd go with Rich at Arizona.
