That schools can't comment per some NCAA rule is to me the real laugher in all these types of deals. Since when can an association -- any association -- tell people what they can and cannot say? So yeah, F the Freep, but F the NCAA as well.

solidly in the No More Teams camp. That said, IF OK and Texas were added, I guess you put Purdue in the East and Texas and OK in the West? The West needs a quality boost

Jake Butt is returning. Need him!

Hit on our quarterback, knocking him out of the game with no flag, now i'm REALLY confused about the quote unquote targeting rule...

Has the most intense stare I've seen. As a player I'd hate to be on the wrong end of that.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||i keep waiting||
For Drew Sharp's Freep column about how this is a bad hire. Wait for it...

is the worst candidate. He's Hoke Part II

waiting for Drew Sharp's story about how Harbaugh is a terrible fit. Cuz you know, Sharp is never wrong...

Someone from a paper told me that. Trust me i'm not messing with your mind. I can't handle that right now either.
i loved the post a couple days ago wherein someone said WHY DO I CARE ABOUT THIS SO MUCH.
Exactly how i feel
|1 year 10 weeks ago||yup||
"The infighting that apparently has been going on since Bo died is the biggest factor in screwing up the program, IMO."
Amen. It's gotta stop
|1 year 10 weeks ago||meanwhile...||
A writer for one of the Detroit papers told me "people close to Harbaugh" say the deal is almost done for him to come here. "Why don't you write that then?" I asked. "Because my editors don't think 'people close to Harbaugh' is a good-enough source. i'm working on it."
So there's that.

just hire Chuck Martin and be done with it? shoulda done that when Carr quit.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||wait what?||
"Regardless of who our coach is next year, they should be given 5-6 years before being judged based on the results on the field." UM didn't do that with RRod and doesn't look like the case with Hoke either. What are you talking about? so Hoke gets another year, minimum, right?
|1 year 12 weeks ago||thank you||
i'll keep an eye out

anyone know when the Maryland start time will be announced? i know noon or 330, but do we know when we'll know which it is?
|1 year 12 weeks ago||my son||
ran track at a Div III school, right about the time RRod was going through practicegate. My kid laughed at the Freep assertions that the football team practiced "too much." He said "that's a hellofa lot less than we spend at track practice." and again, that was Div III track.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Here i go again||
What box does Chuck Martin not check? He's 46 (answering the not-too-old question), has two undefeated seasons at Grand Valley (four in conference), won every regular-season game from 2004 to 2009, three national championships...good god why not him? He's a Tressel-out-of-Youngstown kind of candidate. Like I said, UM should have grabbed him when Carr left.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||an easy call||
Chuck Martin from Miami of Ohio. A no brainer. Shoulda hired him back when Carr split
|1 year 13 weeks ago||What||
A great post. Thank you for writing it
|1 year 13 weeks ago||that||
was one hellofa wishy/washy "blog feature."
it said nothing
|1 year 13 weeks ago||revenue||
The revenue doesn't matter to them. They see the U has an $8 billion (with a B!) endowment and figuer whatever athletics brings in is couch-cushion money.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||exactly||
from a poster above: "what if Hoke fits the academic approach the Schlissel is looking for and believes he can improve the teams win loss record?" That's exactly right: If academics/graduating players are the big thing, UM might as well keep Hoke. In my experience (UM student early '80s) athletics was WAY bigger outside the school then inside. Half the University's upper echelon didn't care about the football team. Those that DID care mostly cared in the form of resenting it because Bo made more than their pal who ran chemistry labs and they hated that. more than half the student body didn't care. Way more than half

Not zero points, negative 3 plus! he ruined my night but i had to start him with Brady on a bye week. ugh

is doing Halloween tonight as homeless Dave Brandon. i thought that was pretty good.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||half||
The regents probably don't know squat about UM's football program and the half that do probably think it gets WAY too much attention and $$$ and generally takes away from students' "quality of life." the whole thing is depressing as shit
|1 year 15 weeks ago||brandon||
knows EXACTLY what's on this blog. He reads it, and lies in saying he doesn't. The screws are getting tighter and he's running out of excuses and he knows it. His ouster can't happen soon enough for me.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||while i do||
want MSU to beat the Buckeyes in a couple weeks, gotta admit i'll snicker at year's end when assclown Dantonio is left off the final four list.
