During or near (memory fails) the Eagles' most recent Super Bowl run, when TO was having a great regular season, TO was on pace to catch over 15 touchdowns. TO also warmed up in an all-white outfit. Andy Reid said that if TO broke 15, he (Andy Reid) would wear the same skin-tight all white outfit. One of the national telecasts mentioned this and gave an artists rendition of what it would look like--Andy Reid's head on the Michelin Man's body. Instead of that, they could have used the above picture (though edited out the Dumb & Dumber haircut). Yikes!

If Ian Rapoport covered college football, during The Process he would have noted that former Michigan DC was "in town" as well...though, in fairness, Rapoport's reporting still is marginally better than Pete Thamel's hard-hitting report on Cardale Jones' smile...

A sort of realultimatepower.net, complete with equivalents to faked news report and angry mail, except replacing Michigan for ninjas?

Well, on one hand, the internet is forever. I have to assume he will make a clean break from his online persona(s) eventually. He will probably be able to do this as long as he didn't give out a bunch of identifying information. On the other hand, you do have a point that he appears to not (yet) have learned his lesson. Or, I hope he hasn't learned the lesson that bullshitting/trolling is the quickest way to attention as long as one has no shame.

Eeeeh, I get the whole "try him as an adult" thought because of his insistence coupled with hiding behind the "I'm 14" when criticized. Still, the best course of action seems to be ignoring him. I think the better lesson is "if you give bad information, nobody listens" rather than "if you give act like a troll, people listen and respond." The first lesson creates a more responsible adult; the second creates Drew Sharp.

Good thing he didn't run into Bret Bielma, who never misses a "recruiting visit" to Scorekeepers on a Tuesday night...

Those who do not remember the past trolling are condemned to repeat it...or something like that.

NFL people are creatures of habit. I remember reading an article where some anonymous scout said he wouldn't draft Andy Dalton because he couldn't think of a franchise quarterback who had red hair. In this situation, I bet few if any successful pro coaches have chosen to go back to college when several pro teams would have hired them in a heartbeat.

Can the MGoBlog HD app have a special signature for "dictated through headset using 'Well...' speech recognition software"?!?

Concocting a ridiculous excuse for a positive drug test can't be that bad--I don't recall a prohibition on the decision wall...

Brandon should have just responded "go find another team to root for"...oh wait, we're talking about the NFL now?

I was actually pleasantly surprised with NBC Sports' morning show. It was 20 minutes on loop, mostly (if not exclusively) highlights, with minimal gimmicks and some ESPNish tag lines for home runs, touchdowns, etc. don't know if it is still on or the same, but it hit the right notes for me.

My cynical side says that UNC will, despite all logic, get a relatively light penalty from the NCAA. Then again, my snarky side is rooting for the NCAA to uncover that instead of going to class, the athletes were stretching...

That really couldn't have gone better from my perspective. Michigan won, it was a thrilling game, and very few will be calling for a reconsideration of coaching change.

Depends which school and which program. Some of those Ivy teams are built and coached to win (mostly in Olympic or preppy sports, for lack of a better term; also think Harvard bball under Amaker); others are geared to development and happiness of student athletes. By the latter, I mean being in the bottom half of the league on a regular basis may be grounds for firing, but over a much longer period of time than at, say, Michigan for football. Some of that, of course, is because the $$$ involved is so much lower; there is a conscious decision on other sports.

Even to the extent I agree with your first sentence, I disagree with your second sentence--both for myself and what I might reasonably expect from others

I don't know...I think it is a great way to honor great players of years past. Much better than retiring a number, in my opinion. On the other hand, for those who believe it only works if the player today is equally as good as the original "legend," I get why they wouldn't like the concept.

I think the compliance department is still looking into how Bobby Bowden ended up with a charge from Ms. Priss' Cat Emporium...I mean, does he look like the kind of guy who would buy from a dad gum cat emporium?!?

I sit at home on the couch, next to my wife. She starts asking if it is over yet toward the end of the first quarter but is generally a good sport about my Michigan fandom.
