I graduated from GPN in the 80’s (and was on the swim team with Coach Les Roddis who recently passed) and have a daughter at South. The transition by the GP public school system has been challenging to say the least. The teachers and administrators are obviously working with a much more diverse student body than 10 to 20 years ago. Diverse in terms of the obvious – culture, race, social-economics – and also diverse in terms of academic preparation, parental involvement, expectations, pre-conceived notions, ignorance, etc, etc.
Interestingly enough Grosse Pointe South just hired a young new principal who is Muslim. Kids seem to really connect with him and like him.

....and stop a potential bidding war for his services? It's in his best financial interest to keep his options open.

It was mentioned on the TV broadcast that Gardner was making himself sarce on the sideline. The game was not out of hand yet and, while i watched, it felt like the broadcasters were just trying to drum up drama. Could Gardner have really added value to the conversation between the offensive coordinator and his QB? Doesn't seem appropriate for him to butt in. If Nuss was up in the press box I would feel differently.
I think this is more of a team wide malaise (MI-laise) rather than a petulant Gardner. Bellomy can't find his helmet, teammates don't react to teammates getting creamed by dirty hits, offense slow to the line, defensive linemen losing both shoes, mishandling of Shane Morris injury, and on and on. Just seems to be a sloppy environment with a serious lack of attention to detail. Maybe even a disregard for detail (like, ya know, details are for pussies...just play man ball).
We have a sloppy looking coach, sloppy talking coach, sloppy coaching coach. Like the old expression....if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, blah blah. As a result our team is a sloppy mess. It was folksy and down-to-earth when the team went 11-2. Not anymore.

I agree. the premise that mgoblog is an indulgence or frivolous vice that should be given up is flawed. would you give up excercise for Lent? maybe you should just give up reading.

My wife and kids are Catholic and the 3 of them give up chocolate for Lent each year. Yes, in recognition of Jesus' 40 day fast in the desert....they give up dessert. I am always filled with ahh and wonder at their grave sacrfice while we sit munching paczkis.
I tell my kids that since i Lent the church my time and money on holidays and the occasional Sunday that I like to collect Interest this time of year. I do so by spending more time and effort on the things i enjoy. Jesus approves.

Chip's gimmicks are not going to transfer so smoothly to the NFL where his team won't have a significant speed advantage. Thankfully Philly should be too cold for him to wear one of those stupid visors. Maybe he can dress homeless-style like Belichick.

With the longer run up and kicking off a tee and less concern for accuracy and the fact the kick-off coverage sort of sucks the dude should be putting them balls deep in the end zone....yes, balls deep every time.

I could get behind this idea only if the team then turned into an angry mob, pulled a co-ed virgin from the OSU/MSU student section and sacrificed her right then and there. Granted they'd have difficulty finding said virgin so it wouldn't really work out.
