for his 15-22 record was more important than fixing the side of the ball we all knew was the problem?
Somehow, RichRod started a year later at Arizona in 2012 yet has Arizona in the Top 25 and beating Oregon while Brady Hoke has turned Michigan football into a fucking disaster.
Maybe, just maybe, Michigan has something to do with why Rich Rod could succeed at WVU & Arizona but not Michigan.
I admit this wasn't perfectly clear in 2011. But we replaced RichRod with a crony pick, not an elite coaching talent that Michigan could surely have PAID to attract.
Replacing RichRod with Brady Hoke has EVERYTHING to do with RichRod and Brady Hoke.

Brandon couldn't find a couple hundred thousand extra to put the guy that knows how to work w/ Rich Rodriguez in charge of our defense.
Whether or not that was the going rate, doubling it would have been chump change versus the amount the athletic department is going to have to spend to fix this mess.

Cut Special Teams/(Events?) coordinator Dan Ferrigno some slack for his choice of the date.

Ehh, but the jokes still would have been unbearable. Little Sister. In Pink.

If they win out (almost no chance in hell), they will definitely be in. They drew Oregon, Stanford, & Washington St for their North Division crossover games.

in a UNC thread.
Right by the intersection of Franklin & Columbia where the students jump over the little "bonfire" when a celebration erupts, there is a little dive bar called
It might have been where the "student"/athletes were hanging out when they were supposed to be studying.
|1 day 17 hours ago||The downside to firing DB today||
is that we don't get to fire him tomorrow. Or the day after...
Yeah, I used "we" as if MGoBlog is calling the shots, 'cause "we" are in fact calling the shots.

Frankly, this is more important.
|2 days 11 min ago||The threat of the loss of accreditation, OTOH,||
would get the serious attention of the defacto UNC decision making powers (including donors, etc.) without causing the collateral damage.
I think it would be good for UNC to have to face the possibility of the loss but then be given the warning and put on double-secret probation.

|2 days 9 hours ago||I think the chances of OSU getting in if it runs the table||
are better than the chances of running the table.
In fact, any one-loss Power 5 conference team will have a pretty good shot.
There's a lot of cannibalism involving the PAC-12, which could include Notre Dame with the Irish playing @ASU (& @USC plus home vs Louisville).
In the Big 12, KSU and its opponents will suffer the most cannibalism as it has @TCU and @Baylor on the slate (plus @WVU, @TX), Baylor plays at home vs KSU (plus @OU), while TCU has perhaps the easiest path at home vs KSU (plus @WVU).
Finally, there's a fairly good chance that the SEC will have less than two one-loss or better teams. Would a one-loss OSU get in before a two-loss SEC team? Hmmmn.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Due to cannibalism, it's not possible for the SEC||
to have 3 one-loss-or-better teams
The regular season features five regular season games among the present five SEC one-loss-or-better teams:
Assuming all of these present five one-loss-or-better teams win all of their games versus other competition produces the maximum number of one-loss-or-better outcomes.
The above 5 games produce 2^5 = 32 scenarios. Taking the results against the SEC tiebreaker rules,
the Western representative in the SEC conference championship game for each scenario can be found. The Eastern conference champion is assumed to be Georgia. If it's anybody else, it's not a one-loss team.
Then, adding another game in each of the 32 scenarios (the Eastern(GA) vs Western Representative) gives 64 total scenarios. Of these 64 scenarios

|2 days 13 hours ago||It may have been someone writing for him||
which is no defense.
I've never had someone write for me, but I'm guessing you make sure they have training in public relations, you give them instructions as to what tone to use in common situations, and you review samples of their work.
Then again, maybe this is what Brandon was refering to when he said "I've been doing things that are frankly more important."

There's a PR issue, one you think is insignificant. But it led to the discovery of willful non-compliance of information retention laws.
It's usually the coverup that drives the stake into the heart.
|2 days 20 hours ago||You mean like Dan Rather?||
Leaving partisanship aside, in news of the highest profile--a Presidential election--he and Martha Mapes reported that a 1973 document copy was authentic. The document was quickly recognized by the typography experts out on the internets to be a forgery created with Microsoft Word default settings.
I.e., CBS did NOT do what Brian did.

|3 days 11 hours ago||Weelll, Morris was worse against Minny||
than Gardner was against MSU.
When you say that it can't get any worse, weelll, it can ALWAYS get worse if you put in a less capable player.
I think putting Gardner out there shows the team that we're still playing for 2014. If we were to lose to Indiana, then, yeah, I'd say put in Morris for 2015. The season is lost. However, Hoke's not going to be here in 2015, so I'm fairly sure he's going to play for this year.
