Eschewing the more obvious and literal joke, I nominate Purdue for Ralphie's little brother.

Well, I'm sure Kansas basketball's participation in the world university games over summer vacation will prevent the Big 12 commish from piling on /s
|20 hours 28 min ago||He must have been thinking so||
He must have been thinking so hard about the question "is our children learning" that he forgot to object to all of the mean, nasty requirements on Clemson's football program in the two weeks before the national championship and the winter break before the quarterfinals.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Yeah, at times Kornheiser and||
Yeah, at times Kornheiser and Wilbon are vanishingly few steps above Bayless and Smith...but this is how narratives start. First a contrarian challenges the conventional wisdom (SEC #1 you guys) because it gets attention. Then a contrarian decides to say it repeatedly because it starts a conversation (even if that mostly means other more "serious" types rejecting the challenge to the narrative) and gets them attention. If Harbaugh has success over time, the Harbaugh-in-the-SEC's-Head narrative looks more and more plausible, and stops being a contrarian viewpoint.

Uh, Sankey, perhaps you should be crusading against Ivy League non-revenue sports (wait aren't they all lulz) that have winter or spring break training trips in much better weather. And those poor student athletes aren't even on scholarship. Is nobody in the Ivy League thinking of the childrenes's edukation?!?!??!

I guess somebody took Hugh Freeze up on his offer to report any evidence of violations. Call him McGruff the Crime Dog...

Brady Hoke had a great first year and went way downhill from a program that was (in his first year) five years removed from playing a No. 1 vs No. 2 in the penultimate game. John Beilein took a program that hadn't been to the tournament since sanctions and went to the elite eight in back-to-back years, playing a competitive national championship the year before.

I think you are getting at the difference in colloquial uses of "crazy." Just because Harbaugh (or many other elite and non-elite coaches) is obsessive about football and winning does not make him out of control or unable to be rational/calculating. I suppose it is easy to mistake exuberance (or enthusiasm unknown to mankind as the case may be) with a lack of inhibition, but that clearly isn't the case with Harbaugh or most other elite coaching performers.

Did J Leman and Ricky Stanzi just make post-grad transfers? USA! USA!

Maybe the BSU player taking five steps has been watching too much LeBron James. LeBron seems to cradle the ball to his body like a running back and take several steps every drive. Sometimes he even gives out a bonus stiff arm to the nearest defender.

Was the assignment to write "MBB vs Nebraska open thread" 100 times on the (chalk) board?

He's been a chatterbox since Valenti got him and H. R. Puffenstuff fired from their coordinator jobs at Michigan State.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||If you are going to do this||
If you are going to do this again, perhaps a different scoring methodology would make sense. Instead of 1st-4th (with ties allowed) perhaps a five-item scale (hey, it works for evaluating recruits!) for how close or far each service was, and give points on a curve. The top grade could be dead on, and (say) eight points, while a completely inaccurate prediction (like a top-100 who isn't injured but never sees the field and transfers to DIII) would be either zero or a small magnitude negative. This approach allows multiple sites to be rewarded if they were close but not tied, while punishing (in score, at least) those that completely whiffed.

Many collegiate teams go to warmer weather for winter or spring break training trips. The difference with this is that it sounds like Harbaugh will use it to reach out to local/regional recruits. Sounds like an outstanding idea, especially as a way to build interest for satellite camps over the summer...

Any competent member of the offensive backfield knows that finger guns are only to be pointed at the MLB. Duh.

I hope he gets an interview--the experience will help him immensely in setting himself up to get a more appropriate position for his experience and a chance to sharpen his ideas. As much as his "advisory council" will help, nothing compares to the actual experience of preparing for and going through the process.

I'm not disputing the first through third teams, but is the honorable mention just a gift to seniors? How can Bolden be on the list and none of Henry, Hurst, or Wormley?

Well, in fairness, that was probably the prep for Ohio State, and the prep ended up not being completely successful.

The team's resilience. It is fun to root for a team that responds late in games, even if some of the responses have been so late as to impact the fan base's collective heart health.

In collegiate rowing, where even the best men's teams often have several walk-ons, coaching is hugely important. This is especially true the further north you get, where a longer winter seriously hampers a crew's ability to get on the water after the winter on-water practice moratorium ends on February 1. Kudos to the coach!

Confession: I don't really like Cracker Barrel. And while I greatly admire Judge Judy's early career credentials (and bank account), I find her show to be a train wreck. I am probably a mediocre at best Michigan fan for not giving both a second chance after Harbaugh returned to Michigan.
