Oh man FIND THIS MAN!
I wanna be there.

He's a one-source reporter. Guy got into an argument with me and BiSB earlier this year when he published that list of grievances from that he purported to be a thing signed by a bunch of players when it was an email one guy forwarded to a lot of people.
Being right is less important than being right for the right reasons. He called Harbaugh because he heard the same things from M people that we did: M people were pushing Jim hard to come back. But rather than put it in context he ran to be the first to say Harbaugh's coming.
I don't think that's the kind of journalism that deserves any kind of appreciation. It's guessing well.

And it wasn't a Photoshop it was a Gimp, so Gimp has a case.

Yeah if doesn't happen then they won't happen. I wouldn't put this up now if we weren't fairly certain. It was a question is do we care about jinxes vs the time it takes to get shirts made and shipped.
"It h4ppened" seems too short term to me. It's not like the hire fixes everything. Getting this program back to elite will be a long process and this shirt is meant to remain relevant throughout that.

Morris. He was thrown into the fire this year but he still has an arm and a head.
I think there's a pretty strong consensus on this side already that no, there's no way in hell or Ohio he'll come here for a grad transfer season, and yes, if there was a chance we'd welcome him.
OSU's own QB situation may not warrant a transfer anyway. J.T. Barrett will be coming off of an injury that doesn't necessarily have you back in a year's time, and certainly won't have him back for spring practice. There will inevitably be "I'm 99%" quotes come fall practice that will be 78% bullshit because that's what football players do. Anyway Ohio State would very much appreciate having Braxton around, and Miller would have all of spring to take 1st team snaps. If I had to guess right now where he'll be come 9/1/2015, it's starting for the Buckeyes.

What if Cam Newton discovered by some quirk of NCAA rules he had one year left of eligibility? Would you take him?

I changed thread name because reasons today.
Two very disciplined defenses vs two offenses that screw with you cerebrally. SDSU does the things we thought Borges should have: packaged power plays. Navy is a 3O which SDSU has fared well against. Lots of smart guys playing football chess out there. Watch Navy's QB on his option reads. Best in the game.

0.0% chance of Beilein getting fired even if this season is a post-season-less disaster, so all your thread could possibly accomplish would be to provide an example of how silly knee-jerk fans are with their hotseat bler, thereby pissing off the board and providing a bad example for other Michigan fans of the level of discussion on the board.
So let's weight: the potential for MGoBlog to look like a joke plus the potential to piss off our readers, versus the likelihood that a stupid question answerable in less than 5 characters generates a considered response.
|6 days 16 hours ago||At what point does Beilein's seat begin to get warm this season?||
Long after you've got your points back. Use the time till then to figure out what questions are worth asking.
|6 days 20 hours ago||It depends. Justice doesn't||
It depends. Justice doesn't get served by any standard solution; it is fitted to the exact circumstances of the crime and the criminal. You can say mercy is the better solution right up to the point where a criminal hurts people again.
Saban's justification is self-serving. The options are not always the street or starring. The competition for players means a football player cut loose by his school for criminal activity is likely to find a second chance elsewhere.
Saban of all people shouldn't be talking about this because he recruits kids already on their second chances, and metes out justice based on how much they can help his football team to a much greater degree than your average coach. If Mark Richt said this same thing I would be all "hell yeah." With Saban, it's Capone making a general argument for clemency. The truth is if Musin Muhammed couldn't have helped his team as much as another recruit, Saban would have cut his ass.
In general I don't think that severe punishment is more effective at justice than mercy and a chance for redemption. I think the pressure to succeed in football is a strong motivation for players to be given second chances and for them to use those opportunities. Giving criminals a chance to make up the damage they caused and move on with their lives is a hugely important aspect of justice. The more that decision is about football instead of the crime or the criminal, the less it is likely to be just. And Nick Saban is the first guy in college football I would name if asked who's making those decisions mostly on the football merits.

This is what I was trying to avoid. I posted my political involvement because it's public (there are going to be articles with my byline and a bottom bio that says I work here) and can affect how people read what I write.
In fairness to the issue you bring up, I could point out that the other side, when it had the governor's seat, kept choosing to patch or replace with cheap stuff instead of springing for the expensive good stuff that our neighbors use, and that decision appeared to be influenced by wanting to keep road repair crews working. So on that issue having an operative republic may only return the fixing of roads into a pit of corruption.

Somewhere along the thought process of "Shane sucks, Tate Forcier was awesome," there was a notable lack of "is this thread-worthy?"

I left out non Power 5 schools on purpose. Also nobody gets an NFL head coaching job after the Lions. Schwartz may break that. But we ruined even Moeller and Mariucci.

Hakn is Yiddish for nag or badger. Hocking is a Jewish wife's favorite pastime.
Hakn rhymes with talkin' if you say it with a Michigander accent.

For those in digital media wondering why this article isn't titled "10 Coaches Who Went Back to School" or "10 Legit NFL Coaches Who Decided to Coach College" it's on purpose.

Thx. I clarified it was the Anaheim era I was speaking of. Robinson didn't inherit the Fearsome Foursome; he got the team that left half its fans to the Raiders.

Predictive purposes: correct. They're all over the board.
But at least you can respond to people who say guys with the prospect of an NFL job never take a college position that there 10 guys who did so, all for different reasons.

Webb clarified this morning: he came up with 8 himself because his sources said it'll be an 8-year process.

John has no interest in the job and is solid with Baltimore. There was only a moment when it seemed he might shake loose from there and then speculation could begin but it never materiaized. We're NOT taking him from the Ravens.

|2 weeks 11 hours ago||Football Scoop isn't out||
Football Scoop isn't out there just making crap up for clicks like Ace Williams, and they at least use sources instead of just releasing stuff from an email chain like Greg Henson.
Just consider their sources: NFL agents (or perhaps just one) who talk to NFL GMs and presidents. Those sources say no way and sure enough want to believe no way. They don't have the sources that, say, Sam Webb has, or even the far more tenuous sources from sources that I have. Those sources are way more positive and suggest Harbaugh's interest in the Michigan job is genuine, and so is his interest in finishing out this season, and the ball is in his court.

Instant and permanent ban. We used to have Misery for such things. Maybe we can bring that back. Nothing makes me sleep better than knowing a troll is unknowingly posting to a completely different server and getting auto "just stop" responses while that server's viruses busily burrow every Trojan and performance wrecker into the offender's registry.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Shemy knew a different side||
Shemy knew a different side of his father than most. Bo wouldn't tell Harbaugh to come home; he would stare him down in the hairy eyeball, then stand up and punch the desk like he's about to climb right over it, and the other hand would point like a bullet that expects to gow through the nucal crevice right between the eyes, through the heart, and out the spine, and he'd say "You are going to coach for MICHIGAN!"
And Harbaugh would be signing his fourth recruiting class before he thought "Wait, why did I agree to that?"
|2 weeks 3 days ago||That post was literally||
That post was literally DELETED (not just taken down) so I'm guessing the fake account went bye-bye as well. I saw it pop up on the back end this morning and then it was gone a minute later.

At the very least the part about the regents is false according to my source who knows a regent really well. Either they haven't been part of any Harbaugh deal, or they're not leaking it to people they leak other stuff to.
