if this is consistent in any way with the department's 'Best man over Michigan man' parameter.
You can take that to read as 'The past doesn't matter so much as the present' - and at present Les Miles has to be a top candidate. Not the top, of course, but way up there.
He's also not going to screw up his young team's minds with no-comments or waffling: he is a winner and wants to win that bowl game. Whatever he is saying in terms of denial is mostly coach speak I think.
As for UM's approach, they have to be different (open, honest) if they want to bring about significant change.

Surface Pro + Windows 8 = garbage?
Maybe Schefter works on one while musing about UM's 'deficiencies'.

like Payton or John H, I'd have to think Stoops gets the first call, Les the second - After Jim, that is.
Stoops would be great.

played well enough to just lose. We rarely have good O and D performances in the same game - and when we do it's the kicking game.
Gahhh...oh wait, this helps the Harbaugh! SKOL!

As a Vikes fan deep down I knew better though.

We Vikes have it in us to cock this up. Seen it many times before.

|1 week 15 hours ago||Worried||
I was worried my Vikes were forgetting who they really are.
Back to normal it seems.
|1 week 15 hours ago||The Vikes will take it!||
We are also a pretty lame outfit and the pedigree to match.
Eventually the Lions will figure to run / throw everything at Greenway and climb back.

but we'll take anything we can get!

Though of course in the bigger Harbaugh picture not necessarily this week.
|1 week 1 day ago||He's ready in the NBA eyes||
I think it's more useful to look at things he doesn't do so well. The last two home games it was interesting seeing teams attack him repeatedly whenever they had him 1-on-1 on the perimiter. NJIT really hammered away at him with success, constantly able to penetrate (especially left).
But the NBA will look at that first step and think they can translate that into lateral movement on D. That wouldn't scare scouts off.
He's very, very quick, with that aforementioned step, so his lack of strength going to the rim won't worry most. He looks much more consistent with his midrange this year, partially because it looks like he is pulling up way closer to the hoop (I'd love to see some sort of ExpressVu on this but it looks this way, can'y be sure). Going right he is killing it. He also has more body control and is getting better looks and finishes tighter in.
Passing he might not look great, but the team is cold, uncertain, playing without much confidence. A lack of an athletic inside finisher is hurting. Plus he is the red flag, drawing lots of help on any sort of penetration. His job in this offense is definitely not to kick out or drive and dish: you want this guy shooting.
He has virtually no flaws in his outside shot. Irvin has a more 'textbook' form but Caris has the quick release, mentality, and results.
It's a different NBA now, raw potential and flaws don't bother them as much. Gone.

Not even American(!) - but Army got hosed with that timeout call. Though they did have that huge dropped pass break earlier.
Fun game, always fun. Go Ally to the South!

and don't comment on the academic reputation (or lack thereof) of either institution. Might upvote an amusing quip here and there on the subject, but otherwise nothing.
Think you'd find a very large number of members here are in fact alumni, and those who aren't are quite candid about it.
I assume you call out your fellow Buckeyes on your message boards, on gameday, etc., who dare to make disparaging comments about Michigan in terms of worth of the school? Or maybe, you know, sports?

This can only mean one thing:
|1 week 3 days ago||Think we'd beat Bama||
Can't see them running on our front; and defo cannot see Sims picking that team apart.
Woodson rubs Cooper out. We win, then annihilate the next up.
Well guess we'll never know, unless someone Maddens this.

the one question which holds the key to the meaning of life:
Crunchy or Smooth?
Alright alright, no politics!

We should always wear maize or blue. Looks way better and more unique than white. I'd love to see a uni with the stright-across block lettering without the Doug Smith Mizzou 'M' treatment. Though the arch is a beaut on Cazzie.
Let's mandate black shoes and socks too.
But please never those day-glo bleed out monstrosities with illegible numbers and names.
|1 week 6 days ago||Loved em||
The big block 'M' on the front was great.
The stripes looked great under pads - but this has to be one of the worst looking jerseys on fans w/o the pads.
Class night and result.

Your articles are excellent and informative. A lot of people feel the same way, can't wait until you are back 100%.
And you will be. Remember - no one is ever alone battling illness. You have all of our unequivocal support.

But par for Cowherd's course. We might as well be posting Brutus Buckeye's hot CC tips.
Give him the Freep treatment.

We won't have the presonnel to run it like they do at Mizzou. Not sure how much time you have with a 60+ coach who might - might - try to recruit to a preferred system we aren't able to support at present.

from Ottawa usually kills it in exhibition play, stateside or in Canada.
Beat Memphis twice this year. Beat Wisconsin last year. Lots of big name scalps.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Coaching too||
That helped a lot.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Think Levert, Irvin go||
And Walton stays for sure.
Those two will probably be at a high point by season's end. An NBA team will love Irvin's elevation and fluid release, his huge first step & driving ability, his discipline on offense. He's also wide and strong, and will be even better going to the hoop as the season progresses.
Levert is so quick and talented, even when people set out to stop him he can get them on his hip, find gaps, etc. Another guy with an outstanding first step. He is confident and always a threat. A bit too light for the NBA now, but will grow into it.
Real tough next year...but Beilein creates these nice problems that bloom in end February and March...
|2 weeks 5 days ago||What a game||
Sees the floor so so well. Spacing, awareness, wow. Clutch. Open 3, gotta take it. must be so fun playing in this system for this coach.
On that note, was surprised how poor Caris' shot selection was in the 2nd half.
