Feldman is most reputable college football writer today and is also the most plugged in. With all the complaining about media and talkng heads, I cant recall ever hearing a negative word about Feldman because henever has any personal agenda.
|1 week 5 days ago||You are right..I was||
You are right..I was mistaken. It does seem to be a more meaningful move then as those likely other options for Harbaugh have been defined while the next option at coach hasnt yet been defined.
|1 week 6 days ago||The more correct||
The more correct interpretation is that it means alot of money was bet on Harbaugh RELATIVE to what was bet on other coaches. This is not surprising as there really hasnt been any buzz regarding about any other candidate looking to have a good chance. All noise recently is about why other candidates are less likely than thought..like Miles (age), Jones ( renegotiating contract). At this point, there really isnt a leading cnadidate for the second choice so hard to see where any moneywould be going outside of Harbaugh.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed...everyone interprets||
Agreed...everyone interprets things from their own perspective but I definitely took Van Bergen's words as a soft way of telling fans that they are a much bigger oart of the problem than they think.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Spoken by the man too lazy to||
Spoken by the man too lazy to actually check if the tweet you reference was at the 140 character limit...the answer is yes but I guess its easier to not bother checking and criticize Poggi. I realize it seems like a waste of time to count the characters but maybe you should take the time if your alternative is ripping him.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Good question..they sure||
Good question..they sure arent going to be happy. It wont come as a surprise so there probably wont be too much of a negative reaction as they probably knew it was coming. Its also interesting to compare how those players talk about their AD compared with how the players talked about Dave Brandon. For all of Brandon's faults, he seemed to be a strong supporter of the athletes.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Thats not true at all. You do||
Thats not true at all. You do not need to wait for a medical redshirt. Blake Countess took a medicial redshirt after being injured in Alabama game in 2012 and his eligibility was immediately updated. There are numerous similar examples. There was some confusion with Devin Gardner's case because the coaches thought they would have to wait but they misunderstood a part of the rule.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Agree. Regardless if what||
Agree. Regardless if what your opinion of him is, its pretty hard to come on here and predict that Speight or Malzone is going to be the starter. No one has even seen Speight play a single down this year and Malzone was a guy who didnt have that great of an offer board before Michigan offered him late. The competition surely will be very open with all guys given a shot at it...but Shane has to be considered the favorite to win the job.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I just reread the post||
I just reread the post above..it may have been talking about Ryan Glasgow not Graham as i originally thought. The guy started most games and you have him 4th on depth chart.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I dont follow..why do you||
I dont follow..why do you think G. Glasgow wouldnt be back? He started almost every game the last 2 years so I cant see any reason he wont be back.

Agree - Bunting should be shown as RS Fr.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||A couple of class||
A couple of class errors:
|2 weeks 6 days ago||And he was a 2 star recruit||
And he was a 2 star recruit at some services and not even rated by a couple of them..only other offer was EMU. So is your point that the coaches must have done a great job developing him? I guess not since that doesnt fit your incompetence story about the coaches damaging the team.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Agree..no real breakaway||
Agree..no real breakaway threat at receiver or running back. That was Hoke's big miss at recruiting by missing out on guys like Laquon Treadwell. Jabrill would have been that guy for returns this year and may have made an appearance on offense to be that type of threat.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I think you are presenting||
I think you are presenting the business argument all wrong. The attractiveness of a CEO is not necessarily that sports is a business now and so it needs to be run that way to some degree...the attractiveness of those candidates is the AD is a large organization and may need a leader who has led a large, complex organization with the characteristics of a successful leader. This includes laying out a vision for the future, developing a strategic plan taking into account the changing environment, energizing your employees to work hard towards those goals, being able to attract talent by having people want to work for you, ensurng the financial future of your organization, and managing people so that they feel important so they give their best effort.

@SamWebb77: Sounds like Delano Hill's absence is of the Jake Butt variety from a few weeks ago. Word in pressbox: "Hoke will address it after the game."
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Keep up the conspiracy||
Keep up the conspiracy theories..and Im guessing several here will somehow say that Brandon is behind the supposed overreported total.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Or because 1500 people on||
Or because 1500 people on twitter have already said the same stupid unoriginal "aware" joke
|4 weeks 5 days ago||This is a very important||
This is a very important recruit as she will likely have to play right away..they will be in desperate need for catching as top 2 catchers on team are both seniors.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||yes - that happened..but i||
yes - that happened..but i was answering the question about the blocked FG as there were photos on twitter that made it look as if there were only 9 people on field on that play. Ace had suggested so...but it was investigated and there were 11 on the blocked FG. As ugly as the came was, the coaching wasnt the issue today as the coaches didnt drop passes or throw interceptions.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||What did Nuss do so bad||
What did Nuss do so bad today? Was it his fault Funchess dropped multiple passes? Was it his fault Gardner missed a wide open Dever to throw an interception?
|5 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed...offensive line was||
Agreed...offensive line was solid and I didnt really have many issues with the playcalling. The reality is that the offensive problems come down to issues with Gardner and Funchess almost entirely.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||It was definitely 11..went||
It was definitely 11..went back and rewatche it because of the photo. The conclusion by Ace and others on Twitter was that there were 11 as it was just a weird photo were the long snapper and another were hidden.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||There were 11..stop trying to||
There were 11..stop trying to make things up. watch the play again - definitely 11.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Not sure if you are||
Not sure if you are joking..but its the softball stadium. Both fields switched from grass to field turf this year for the first time...helps alot with the early spring games when the weather is poor as field drains much quicker.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Yes - it can be a||
Yes - it can be a coincidence. I think Hoke has bent his own rules for specific purposes to 1) stop the noise and rumors about Peppers and 2) defend Gardner's play by hinting that he still is injured and nowhere near fully healthy.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||No - Im saying its||
No - Im saying its interesting that the students complained this year when there was no increase in prices and the seating policy was created by CSG...but last year it wasnt as vocal even though there had been an increase and the hated general admission policy. Perhaps the 2-4 start this year vs a 6-1 start last year had alot more to do with it than is admitted.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Good point. This year there||
Good point. This year there was no increase in student ticket prices..this year the general admission issue was corrected based on agreement between the students (CSG) and the AD...yet this year was when the protests not last year when the ticket prices were incrased and there was general admission. So why were the protests this year? I see two things: 1) a poor win/loss record to start the year (2-4) and some bad early losses and 2) the use of the Shane Morris incident as an opening for protest as it allowed the protestors to have the moral high ground because they could say their concern was for the safety of the players.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||OK..so now you are saying the||
OK..so now you are saying the poor student attendance is a win/loss thing..and I thought it was supposed to be a Brandon thing.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||You are right..either could||
You are right..either could happen...So there are valid arguments on both sides. This started as a rebuttal to those calliing Hoke an idiot for bungling the clock management. Both sides can be defended.
