Executive search firms will find and vet candidates, maybe make recommendations depending on the scope of what they're contracted to do, but at the end of the day, the decision belonged to Dave Brandon. And I would say that it was a high profile placement, whether or not it panned out.
Andy Enfield is a pretty interesting one on the list, as he made the leap from FGCU after their amazing NCAA tournament run to USC.

Also a big user of the apps (Watch ESPN, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Skype, etc.). There are enough free features to keep it interesting.
We also have Kinect and definitely useful for certain games. Obviously can't do Just Dance without it (if you're into that game) and some of the voice commands work pretty well.

The thing with Rodriguez is that he actually did something really well (offense) and had a trend of improvement over his 3 years as head coach. Hoke doesn't have that "one thing" on which to hang his hat, and his trend has been negative over his 4 years.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Agreed||
Be decisive, for once, and do what should be done. Recruiting visits make no sense right now, unless the AD has somehow given Hoke the impression that he will not be fired, or Hoke is just too stubborn to acknowledge it.
I understand Hoke's position - unless told otherwise, he's the coach and he's going to do what he thinks needs to be done. If he has recruiting visits already set up, canceling them can only be an indication to those athletes that he is, in fact, done.
The AD just needs to bring some clarity and ASAP. Michigan has no bowl game to play for, so no complication there. Best to cut the cord now and get a new coaching staff in place sooner than later in order to preserve as much of the recruiting season as possible.

He was offered a full scholarship and committed. He also informed the coaches he would be graduating early and reporting to campus in January 2015. Now, 2 weeks before his HS graduation and 7 weeks before he was to start classes at college, he is basically being told not to bother showing up, but to wait a year before being granted a scholarship. His options are:
If he were offered a greyshirt from the beginning, then this would be a complete non-issue.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||actually||
No, Dan Mullen didn't really give him an option.
I've copied ESPN's definition below, but he basically said thanks, we want you, but not until spring semester in 2016. He graduates in 2 weeks. if he wants to go to mississippi state, he can't enroll full time. He could theoretically enroll part time, pay $12k per semester for tuition, room, board, books, etc., and have nothing to do with the football program while on campus. Great option.
Everybody who follows college football is pretty much aware of what a redshirt is, and a grayshirt is basically a delayed version of a redshirt. When a recruit grayshirts, he signs a letter of intent in February but doesn't report for fall practices with his teammates. He delays entry to the school until the spring semester of his freshman year, keeping the NCAA five-year eligibility clock from starting. During that first semester, he can't enroll in college as a full-time student, can't receive his scholarship, can't practice and can't be around the program in any official capacity.

Saying a kid needs a backup plan sounds all well and good in theory, but he just had the rug pulled out from under him a couple weeks to HS graduation and 7 weeks until classes start at miss st. I would've been feeling pretty comfortable about my future college plans at that point, also.

If I'm reading this article correctly, it seems to suggest that the first 3 stay bonuses of $500k each were paid out in December 2013 after completing his 3rd full season after the bowl game. So far this year, no stay bonus until he completes the season. If you were to recalc after the bowl games, Hoke's compensation would be at least $600k higher than what is listed (stay bonus + annual contractual increase in base pay of $100k/year).

Michigan WILL be weaker in the post than last year, practically a given. The question is whether Caris can truly become elite and the youngsters can fill the gaps left by GRIII and Morgan/Horford (and, to an extent, McGary).

So I'm confused. Are bowties still cool?
Not sure I've completely warmed up to Peter Capaldi yet, although I am happy for the change. Interesting dynamic he has going with Clara. Then again, he is supposed to be pretty gruff. I have to say, though, that the most recent episode was a bit frustrating.

Neat little mnemonic device used to tell which camels have 1 hump and which have 2 humps. Uppercase D has one "hump" so that goes with Dromedary camels, which have one hump. Uppercase B has two "humps" so that goes with Bactrian camels, which have two humps. My kids should never forget which camel is which.

They made a statement b/c it would get around pretty quickly anyway that he was no longer with the team. Better to make a pre-emptive statement about it than to allow unchecked speculation to run wild. At least this way, they can craft the message before some stupid trolls come up with "inside sources" telling them that Bosch left the team for whatever negative reasons they can come up with.

Local news reports on college football ALWAYS include the Fig Things along with schools actually in Illinois (U of I, NW, NIU).

I'm sure putting the whole thing together took a lot of time and money. The movie posters are... interesting.

Not one of my favorites, but Last Boy Scout was good in a ridiculous action movie sort of way. Any idea about the new de la Salle movie that just came out?

I resisted watching the Blind Side for a long time, but it was pretty good.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||re: awareness||
Not anymore. Now it's about marketing and saying "we have a cause!" We are saturated with pink in sports - pink gloves, socks, jerseys, facemasks, trim, women's teams wearing ALL pink (which, frankly, is just brutal to watch). It's to the point that it doesn't raise awareness moreso than the ire and annoyance of fans.
I'd be all for teams/leagues sponsoring a different cause every year. Breast cancer awareness is surely important (my wife has had a couple of scares, and dear friends have had breast cancer), but there are many other worthy causes that also need awareness.
I suspect that part of the reason why the pink thing works is that it is neutral as far as teams go. There are no teams I can think of that have pink as a primary team color, even in the WNBA.

You are factually wrong on so many counts. Minnesota plays at TCF Bank Stadium.
As for being named for the schools, Camp Randall, Memorial Stadium(s), Beaver Stadium, Kinnick Stadium, Ross-Ade Stadium, and Byrd Stadium. Only Michigan and osu have stadiums named for the schools (or state). Msu's is named for the mascot.

Prefer grass, for sure, but I have to say that from a maintenance perspective, this new generation of artificial turf is really impressive. Other than the annoying rubber pellets, it drains so well and can be made so it's not hard like the old astroturf (basically a carpet on top of cement) - a bit more "rebound" like a rubber track, although it's still not pleasant to crash on.
I'm interested in the grass-turf hybrid in use at Mile High and Lambeau. Looks very interesting.

Pretty dang awesome.

Nobody is saying it was ok for him to do that, least of all Brian. I think what he IS saying is that he sympathizes with the difficulty of not making a bad decision in the heat of the moment, and that York's upbringing probably didn't do him any favors in that department. How wrong his actions were is blatantly obvious - nobody is arguing that.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||They aren't mutually||
They aren't mutually exclusive. Assuming (for the sake of argument) that York is allowed to remain on school, but on probation and basically forced a redshirt and limited participation in football activities does not mean that the interests of the other student are not being served. I would assume the kid has insurance, or will otherwise be taken care of medically and academically if he has to miss a semester.

It doesn't necessarily follow that expulsion is the only possible outcome for physical violence, as the poster above suggests. It is ONE potential outcome, based on internal University policy. Both internal University and external police investigations will take place and, I'm sure, the appropriate punishment meted out, whether that's expulsion, separation of contact from the University or certain areas/activities, or suspension. Honestly can't see anything less for what appears pretty blatant. You can even see him start to wind up a few moments before hitting the guy.
