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.
|2 weeks 4 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...

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?

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.

Ha, Peter King is a league apologist, writes at a third grade level, tries to make himself the attraction (guess what beer I just tried you guys!), and sticks his foot in his mouth (Sean Taylor as a draft bust because he didn't produce enough in his career...really?!?). But just because he has flaws doesn't mean his reporting isn't good--or, in this case, his 100% factual and verifiable statement.

UTL1 really summed up the best and worst of Denard in one game--frustrating at times but also breathtaking and a game changer. The Jeremy Gallon cloaking device play and Roundtree touchdown are my favorite moments (best when narrated by Don Criqui....)
