|1 day 15 hours ago||Gus Malzahn||
Gus Malzahn took his 5-7 Auburn team to the National Championship Game his first year.

5 o'clock somewhere

Jim is like Bo, except faster.
|6 days 7 hours ago||He has to be going there||
I mean, Herbstreit already confirmed that Les Miles took the Michigan job.
|1 week 2 days ago||A few.||
Grand Valley State (where I was an undergraduate)
The miscellaneous southern school that pays me to work in their athletic department.
Gonzaga Basketball (I was eight years old when they made that elite 8 run)
Hawaii athletics (I just like Hawaii)
|1 week 3 days ago||If we win a lot this year.||
If we win a lot this year, I can't imagine how popular Harbaugh will be around here.
|1 week 4 days ago||He's a Redskins fan||
That's enough of a punishment in itself.
|1 week 4 days ago||Your post beat mine.||
|1 week 4 days ago||I'll play devil's advocate||
Sure no one is forcing these kids to compete so hard for playing time, but I guess you could make a case that some players upbringings are. You can't seriously convince me that all 85 scholarship players on each team are there to study, let alone are capable of being traditional college students on their own. So many of these D1 football athletes come from poor areas with one parent families and school districts that have sub 50 percent graduation rates that feature student bodies that average a third grade reading level. You think the majority of these football players are going to magically be able to academically succeed plus obtain necessary internships on top of football demands? It's not going to happen, which is why if you look at almost every D1 team, a huge majority of their players are enrolled in one program. Succeeding in sports is the main way these kids are going to get money, and you can't succeed if you don't get playing time. It might work at Michigan where guys like Vincent Smith have made an impact post playing career, but not with the majority of players at the majority of schools.
|1 week 6 days ago||Don't take this the wrong way guys||
But Ann Arbor is pretty snobby, or at least that's the perception of everyone that I have met.

OK Fred Jackson
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Hugh Jackman||
I used to work at a small "waterpark" in the summer. It was a slower day in the middle of the week, and out of nowhere, this ripped guy with shades and a hat and I think two kids comes in. My co-worker immediately recognizes him as Hugh Jackman. Apparently he was filming Real Steel nearby and had an offday. Hugh was super nice. He shook our hands and took a quick photo with some of the staff. He was there for maybe 1-2 hours before other people started recognizing him. Once that happened, he left and booked it out of there in a black SUV.

Considering our depth at their respective positions, their size and athleticism, and Harbaugh's joy for moving players around to different positions, I wonder if K. Davis or even Victor Viramontes end up at LB if we miss on Caleb Kelley or Bush.

This 49ers team is bad, but the Lions 0-16 team was a special bad that takes years of losing and bad drafting to accomplish.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||Just brainstorming, tell me what you think:||
Tom Brady's Soft Balls
Brady's Ball Boys
Goodell Hates Brady's Balls
|3 weeks 8 hours ago||Your points||
Your points ended up in Bolivia. Might as well send you there to find them.
|3 weeks 20 hours ago||I can understand||
I can understand choosing to play basketball at schools like Kentucky, and Kansas over Michigan, but what does Indiana provide that Michigan can't?
|3 weeks 1 day ago||In the first four rounds||
Never reach for a player who is projected to be drafted outside the first four rounds. No matter how much you like the player, don't do it. There is very strong chance you have over-evaluated the player, and you are taking an unessesary risk at the expense of a proven player. Ignoring this rule is how I ended up with Cordarell Patterson in the 4th round last year.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I have a friend who went to ASU||
He's shocked that every girl he dated at ASU cheated on him.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Attending a borderline southern school||
I think their could be a few reasons for this:
Because of this resulting conservatism, law enforcement can come down hard on drinking. Also antiquated liquor laws exist. For example, in my school's state, liquor stores have to close on Sunday, and most non liquor store retailers can only sell beer that is under four percent alcoholic content.
Most of the partying gets done at tailgate, which is a much bigger deal down here than in Big 10 country.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I can see how some would matter||
Like if someone was pretty religious and wanted to avoid the party scene, The Top Stone Cold Sober Schools would be perfect. But if anyone is making their decision based on the top party schools list, chances are they won't last long in college.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Not the flipside||
BYU has won "most stone cold sober" school like 17 years in a row.
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||No, just no.||
I'm not sure if this poster actually remembers the 0-16 Lions. They were a special bad. They had a wide receiver, a good kicker, and I think a rookie Cliff Avril at DE. The rest of that team were career backups and undrafted free agents or low draft picks. Are best quarterback was a guy we signed off the street in the middle of the season. The 49ers lost a lot of talent, but they still have an OK to solid QB that started a Super Bowl. They also had some promising drafts the last two years of Harbaugh.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Not everything Hoke did was bad||
Hoke woefully underprepared his teams, but he did do some good. For one, he did get Peppers and high ranked recruiting classes. He also seemed like a genuine guy who actually did care about his players (which also contributed to his downfall to some extent.) I'm sure he had some other good ideas as well.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I don't think they look good||
Especially the LSU one, they look meh at best. However, Ohio State kind of pulls it off for some reason. Call me whatever you want, but that's just my opinion. I wouldn't want them to wear one during a game, but I'd be interested in seeing what a black Michigan jersey looks like, for science of course.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||You want to know who doesn't give a shit?||
You want to know what fanbases don't give a shit about the player once their eligibility expires? SEC and Ohio State fans.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||To be fair||
When making a budget, you have to always assume the worst case scenario. Plus, Brandon is in his 60's, an age where most people want to quit working. Heck, even if I'm in my dream job, I'm retiring the moment I can afford it.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||To be fair to Mullen||
His primary recruiting bases are the states of Mississippi and Alabama. Those two states have the worst k-12 public school education systems. Obviously, it shouldn't justify allowing a kid with a 2.2 gpa to attend a somewhat strong academic university, but I'm just providing insight on where Mullen is coming from.
