|5 hours 4 min ago||Because he learned to be a DC by hiring John Chavis?||
|5 hours 30 min ago||But why would anyone think he's going to be a coordinator?||
OC or DC, it really doesn't make much sense.
|6 hours 18 min ago||Twitter this morning had Corley visiting MSU||
tomorrow. A late change of plans would be good news.
|6 hours 26 min ago||There are multiple outlets confirming that he is leaving,||
with various quotes from the booster meeting.
|6 hours 35 min ago||They're not going to offer Jimbo $5M a year.||
They want someone to beat Saban. They'll offer Saban type money to get who they want. They don't pay an enormous buyout of a good coach with anything else in mind.
|6 hours 47 min ago||I thought it was the other way around.||
The boosters told Les he was coaching his last game at LSU. A group of them were the ones promising the money for his buyout.
|6 hours 53 min ago||Guessing he meant wary about Elliott decommitting again||
|10 hours 18 min ago||Yes, that's correct. I've been a subscriber for a long time.||
They never stopped publishing through the name changes, although they did go from a daily to a twice weekly.
|16 hours 34 min ago||The Ann Arbor News is not defunct.||
They publish a physical newspaper on Thursdays and Sundays.

Henry doesn't hit him with his helmet. He didn't launch himself. It's not targeting. It's not a late hit.. It's not unnecessary roughness.
If he was hitting him with his helmet that's a penalty whether he's going down or not. Hitting a player while he was going down is not a penalty for that reason. It's a perfectly legal play. I thought it was obvious that's what I was referring to.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Not to be too snippy, but where did I call it targeting?||
|2 days 11 hours ago||Zettel launched himself and made contact to the head||
with his helmet. Those are two things Henry did not do and they are the textbook definition of unnecessary roughness. Equating the two plays is simply ridiculous.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Since when is hitting a player on his way down a penalty?||
How many times have we seen a player seemingly on his way down escape a tackle this season? A couple have gone for big gains against us. Hitting him when he is already down can be a penalty. Henry has gotten one of those. That was dumb. This was aggressive football that helps win games.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Harbaugh said Kalis graded out as the 2nd best OL||
against PSU, just behind Cole.
|2 days 13 hours ago||I don't think even those were big questions.||
We assumed Peppers would fill one of those spots very well and Lyons would take the other. I think the 3rd CB in nickel packages was the biggest concern. Maybe whether we had a Buck that would fit Durkin's scheme. That's not much to worry about.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Chesson becoming a serious big play threat.||
It didn't happen overnight. They kept finding was to use him until the deep passes finally clicked. That's the coaching move I'm most impressed with too. Pre-season, I never imagined he could be the weapon he's become.
AJ Williams, Ryan Glasgow and Jourdan Lewis. Williams is a completely different player. Glasgow and Lewis have stepped their games up more than I thought possible.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Isn't that exactly why you're supposed to hit the QB?||
|2 days 13 hours ago||Not the greatest angle, but it doesn't look like his helmet||
is ever close to hitting the QB. Maybe lowering his head is not the best move, but it's important to hit the QB. He was going down, but it wasn't late.
|2 days 14 hours ago||I'd like to know what Hackenburg was saying.||
Huard implied his frustration was directed towards the coaches. It was an interesting commentary.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Herman did not sign a new contract with Houston.||
The only news from last week was that their regents approved offering him a big raise. That's hardly the same thing. I would imagine a buyout clause is something that Houston wants to raise too. It's hardly to Herman's benefit to sign such a contract immediately.
|2 days 18 hours ago||10-1 actually.||
Lost to UConn immediately after Houston approved offering him a big raise, But yes, that's really the point. 10-0 is too thin a resume for a job where they are willing to pay top dollar to get who they want.
|3 days 3 hours ago||There was no line, really.||
The only one quoted was from a little offshore book with low limits.
|3 days 4 hours ago||It's hard to tell what Miami's going to do.||
I think they want someone with connections to the school and money may be a stumbling block for them. If they work that out it's a better job for the right coach. Not sure it's a good fit for many.
I agree that Herman likely couldn't do much better now, but I think he might be better off staying put for another year or two. South Carolina will be a good test of his coaching ability.
|3 days 4 hours ago||No way in Hell would Herman be on the short list at LSU.||
You don't spend $15 million to buyout Les Miles to bring in an unproven, but promising coach.
|3 days 5 hours ago||My memory of Aaron Shea is that he mostly played H-back.||
We just didn't call it that back then.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Yes, Maryland's job is better than Miss St||
as long as they are willing to spend money. That's been a problem in the past. Doesn't appear to be now.
|3 days 6 hours ago||PSU has something to play for.||
They can get to a better bowl. They already have impoved from last year's record. Given how the season started, they've done pretty well. They can knock MSU out of the championship game. They play them the last week every season. That game must mean something to them,
PSU needs to implement a quick passing attack. They can't have Hackenburg hanging on to the ball. That's been obvious for two years, so I have zero confidence in their gameplanning.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Really disagree about who's at the top of the coaching boards.||
The Tom Herman sweepstakes is for second tier Power 5 schools. Fuentes and Babers are good candidates for those jobs, too. Even Maryland is looking for a more established coach. The big time programs all will be too. If Mullen leaves, I could see Miss St going after Fuentes. I don't see schools like LSU, UGA, USCw as possibilities.
|3 days 6 hours ago||He was 26-2 in 2008-9 just before things began to unravel||
in Florida. He's a great coach, in no possible way on the hot seat, but people wonder what will happen when they look at his history. How does he handle discord and disappointment?
|3 days 7 hours ago||Lorenz did mention Corley.||
I can't report it as well as Alum96. He's expected to pick MSU, wouldn't rule out ND, OSU or Tennessee(?). No real shot he comes here.
We've never been a favorite to land him. We went from no interest to some interest.
