1. The offensive line gives Gardner enough time to hit the deep routes that State dares you to complete
2. There is enough of a running game to be in third and 5 or less more times than not
3. No turnovers
4. No special team gaffes
5. The defense doesnt allow any big plays. Make Cook go the length of the field
6. When one of the above five things go wrong we dont collapse
At the risk of sounding overly optimistic it's not impossible. We actually CAN do all those things - whether we do or not is still very questionable. I actually it's going to a much better and closer game than the line suggests.

Funk, Hoke and Brandon perhaps?
Oh damn - he said players.

It appears that Brian got an email forwarded to him with presumably juicy news that he's trying to verify the authenticity of before releasing the information. He's trying to find out if somebody can fake an email address in a forwarded email.

You hope it's good news anyways. He could've recieved word that Hoke just got an extension.

Is that you Tony? LIke I said at the time - it could've happened to anyone.

A pox on your house.
But you'll notice in my original post I did say "if Hoke is fired". Sadly the terrifying possibily still exists that we will be led next year by Hoke and not a real football coach.

Brian let me give you some advice here. As tantalizing as the offer may seem now there is NOT a Nigerian Prince with $27,000,000 euros needing a US businiess partner to transfer these funds to. And if you do give him your credit card and bank routing information to help him out not only will you never see the 27MM you wont get your $10,000 in processing fees back either.
Those guys are pretty slick so I can see why you'd be tempted but take it from somebody who learned the hard way they really arent for real.

Wait and see. I'd put heavy money down on him before either Harbaugh

Thank you SI. I've been saying exactly that about the Mullen - Florida rift (one of my employees is an ex-player for the Gators) and nobody believed me.
|12 hours 12 min ago||What a great, great memory||
What a great, great memory that game brings. I had taken my then 16 year old son Chris and after State scored to go up 27-10 we thought about leaving (had a 3 hour drive back to Cleveland) but decided to stay for one more possession. Obviously that turned out to be the single best decision I've EVER made as the end of that game and overtime was one of, if not THE, most exciting games I've ever been to.
And I dont care what anybody says - that was the absolute loudest I've ever heard the Big House get - even without the luxury boxes in place. The place absolutely shook from the noise and people jumping and banging the seats. It was fucking awesome.
I miss games (and especially Michigan teams) like that.

"They do more for the glory of Michigan football than you do by sittting at a bar and ribbing some fan of a team you just beat."
I'm sorry but I have to call Bullshit on this one. I can tell you without hesitation that when I rib the fans of a team we just beat it exponentially increases the glory of Michigan football.

Where do I say I know who the next coach is going to be? I'm pretty sure if you go back and read every single post I've ever made on this subject I've never claimed that - I just think the likelyhood of either Harbaugh coming here next year is extremely low given that NOT ONE SINGLE SUCCESSFULL NFL HEAD COACH HAS EVER DONE IT BEFORE. And that is a fact, not an opinion.
Bill Walsh took three years off before going to Stanford
Pete Carroll failed miserably at NY and was fired before going to USC
Bill Callahan was fired by the Raiders before going to the Nebraska
So sorry that I think the odds of this happening are exremely low given that it's never, ever happened before.
But hey - somebody's going to win Power Ball this weekend so maybe there's a chance right?

So yes on the bet then?
BTW - I truly, dearly, desparately hope to be WRONG. I would love, love, love Harbauagh to be our next coach so please dont mistake my lack of optimism for it happening to mean I dont want it to.
I also want us to win on Saturday.
|19 hours 31 min ago||I made no "blanket statement"||
I made no "blanket statement" i simply lamented the fact that this and all the other wishfull posts about the brothers Harbaugh and their alleged coaching at Michigan next year are, IMO silly, and are going to now increase exponentially due to Brian.
FWIW I am absolutely willing to put my money where my "debbie downer" mouth is. I'll give you, C-Lord and anybody else either of the two Harbaugh's as our coach next year and I'll take the field. Straight up bet.
So ask yourself mGoVoldemort.....do you feel lucky? Well punk do YOU?

I'm so sad Brian included Harbaugh in that piece yesterday cause now everybody's going to assume he's coming and post endless shit like this for the rest of the year.

“Well, we’ve had great practices. Great preparation. Last week, Tuesday and Wednesday what we did was very positive. Last night, really positive.”
Every time i read the transcripts from a presser I picture Chauncey the Gardner from the movie Being There as our head coach. I'm 99% sure they possess the same keen intellectual capacity and critical thinking skills anyways.

Then nothing will happen to Brandon. He will be doing his job and will be retained. Our win loss record be damned.
