The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

Triple posted a thread(!) asking for tickets. Reset points to zero in hopes the user will be better aquainted with how the board works by the time he gets to 100 again.

David Nasternack. Or Nasternak. Or Nastysnack. Whatever--Brian's old friend and soccer-watching buddy, best known around these parts as the super nice guy who made one mean comment to a waitress near Penn State after that stupid game and it was her birthday and he made a very grand apology.
David started doing some administrative things last year because I needed to be selling ads and running HTTV and writing, and Brian and Ace needed to be more writing and writing and a lot of things were not getting done.

Sorry to people who had posts deleted. This thread is utilitarian; it will get long enough this season without the extras, and I'd rather not have to load 100 unnecessary gifs every time we have to moderate something.

Ballers is the new show with The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) on HBO where he plays a retired Miami Dolphins DE who manages players' finances. In the show the Rock's good friend/client is a firecracker former USC slot receiver on the back end of his career who has always worn #18, but gets assigned #41 on the Dolphins (then has sex with #18's mom--don't watch this with your 2-year-old).

Very good system guy but I almost like their other corner, harris, better because more upside. VanHoose is limited in what he can do. But he's really smart. You can have a good defense out of guys like that. Just none of us made that kind of defense.

Was that confirmed? Is the 41 a reference to Ballers?

There was more to it than that from what I was told. I'm really really trying to get that story on the record; sorry to keep teasing you guys. He said "one day maybe." Make no mistake:
I don't think the Swarbrick and Martin renegotiations were as friendly as suggested in Bacon's book. From multiple sources Swarbrick lacks some very basic faculties required for friendship with humans. I think Martin knew he was getting bullied, but put that aside because he knew Michigan fans cared more about having this series than whether an asshole like Jack Swarbrick gets put in his place.
By the way, the ND game was always at home in the odd years, same as OSU. Michigan suggested having it the other way back in 1978 but ND didn't want to have M and USC at home the same years. As it was in 2007 when Martin was negotiating with Swarbrick, this was a thing Michigan wanted and Notre Dame wanted to get an advantage out of.

Excellent breakdown. I think the point about 2013 being a Jerry Kill season is well taken, but that needs to be framed in Vanderbilt terms. Minnesota got to 8 wins by being not bad at defense and stretching bad talent everywhere on offense except center., RB, and tight end as far as it would go across a weak Big Ten and non-conference schedule. That is the mark of a good coach doing well in a bad situation.
He's probably not even a B in-game coach but he's an A recruiter and B+ program builder.
One thing he has done very very well at Penn State and Vandy but couldn't at Maryland is get great assistant coaches. Bob Shoop is on the list of elite defensive coordinators, and even though the OL cratered that was a depth chart thing and their OL coach has a very strong track record. Their DL coach is amazing.
Lastly, Bill O'Brien left that team in amazing shape all things considered--he whiffed on OL and that is a major major problem. But Hack is an NFL QB if they can get him through this year without PTSD, and the defense is loaded, and those tight ends, and even the young guys at receiver and linebacker look pretty good. So even if Franklin has shortcomings in some areas, a ridiculously easy schedule this year plus his recruiting efforts and last year's apparent success in a bad situation sets him up well as long as those players take care of business. He does do some things that rankle the old guard but they have the sanctions era to buffer him from that--nobody there can really complain that they want the Paterno tree to take over again, especially if that means giving Jay a job.

They tried to throw Cox at the problem too but yeah he was officially a safety who came over. Hicks didn't overtake him; Hicks was the original attempt at a starter, and when that wasn't working out they went fishing. He was also a non-factor in the wide open safety battle.

Also think how valuable a guy like Denard Robinson would be for a team. You sign that guy and hell you could create a special spread package for him for the 3rd quarter.
So many awesome football dudes could be thrown at this. And the teams could protect their stars and really come away with some good competitive football.

I was kinda hoping the board would just all quietly agree this is stupid because it always is. But I knew it wouldn't be, and was prepared.

Not to mention all the marvelous things you can do with newspaper. It's terrible how much the paper has shrunk in recent years, not because I ever read a word of 4/5ths of its sections, but because a parent with a subscription was a limitless supply of wrapping paper, project floor protectors, scarecrow stuffing, and firestarter.
I wonder if they have subscriptions to just plain paper? Or I guess I could sign up for all the advertising broadsheets, but they get glossy and that's just not the right texture for all these projects. I want something you can wet then wrap around things to make papier mache, you know?

We all scouted him and came up with Carlos Brown. I don't see that translating to the Big Ten, where the defenders are as fast as he is.

I thought about Steele but if I'm making Renes the NT I want a penetrating unblockable monster at DT. Brandon Graham is safe. So really it came down to Steele and Martin, or if I should slide Martin back to nose so I can insert Steele.
I'll fight you re: Shea/Tuman. Maybe Tuman's a better inline TE, but Shea you can put anywhere in the backfield or on the line and he's such a ridiculously good blocker it's like having a free pulling guard who can appear in any part of the running game, for just a moderate dropoff from Tuman's pass catching. Shea.

Just sucks--not just a guy we were getting un-ignorable practice reports about but one of the nicest guys on the team who was so looking forward to playing in front of his family in a few weeks. Just absolutely sucks.

We kinda make fun of Moss all the time but like that he usually picks targets who are deserving. Moss likes to be an infuriating dipshit, but when he's an infuriating dipshit toward Valenti or Foster or Sharp it's funny. This article was actually way below his typical standards, which are not very high. I think he saw an opportunity to draw a line in the Harbaugh craze, capitalizing on the same Drew Sharpitude he regularly rips Sharp on.
Seriously nobody takes him seriously.
