NC State's AD says: "Time to give him a Legends patch!"

2017 is the year we win it all. Book it.

Eh, '98 was not a national title-level team. The '98 version of Brady wasn't nearly as good as the '99 one was, and the running game was iffy. We also weren't nearly as dominant defensively, without Woodson and Steele. 10-3 was an OK record given the team we had, although the three losses were ugly.
1999 OTOH was one player away from the national title - William Peterson. He was kicked off the team in the preseason . . . and then we had no CB good enough to cover Plaxico Burress at MSU. The secondary was our only weakness that year. Peterson would have shored it up.

By the same token, that "NFL line" featured three redshirt freshmen. And the A-Train was a true freshman.

On the defensive side of the ball, you do have to have a fair amount of endurance - defensive players do a lot of running over the course of a game, with limited rest time in between plays.

First line of the article:
Limestone? That sounds more like the Horseshoe than the Big House.

Well, Amazon was full of it, because It did not come today. This sucks - I wasted my time pre-ordering it when I could have just bought it at a store.

I got the same message. Book hasn't arrived yet. You're on the clock, Amazon...

Really? I enjoyed it as the sense of "It's Happening" grew stronger every day. And Brian's daily Searchbits were awesome.

It was the other way around - Ward wasn't drafted by the NFL but had a long NBA career.

But even so, Jim Harbaugh is a rock star and his hiring made a FAR bigger splash than anyone else's.
|1 day 1 hour ago||I thought that was just a||
I thought that was just a bookkeeping kind of thing. My understanding was that in a roundabout way we're paying him to coach, have a TV show, have a radio show, host a camp, and do some other things, but I think our AD ultimately pays for it.

His position is endowed ("J. Ira and Nicki Harris") although I don't think that necessarily covers his entire salary. But regardless, we've got the money to pay him.

But what's important is that he acknowledges that he doesn't know much about sports. A lot of presidents might want to meddle with the athletic department. Schlissel knows it's not his realm of expertise and isn't going to involve himself unless absolutely necessary.

And since he's already redshirted, it doesn't matter at all how much he plays- unless it can be proven that his 2012 redshirt was medically related.

Because only THE KNOWLEDGE possesses THE KNOWLEDGE

They're giving our head coach - and by extension our program - massive amounts of free publicity. This is very much a good thing.

How would he have come? He was never offered the job.

If we're going with the "Legendary athletic director moved Michigan forward" shtick, shouldn't that quote at the bottom be a little different? Shouldn't it be, like, a quote from another CEO talking about brand maximalization?

If you're a 49ers fan that's a problem, but as a Michigan fan that "distraction" doesn't bother me at all.

The NFL league office is definitely not terribly bright - but its marketing wing is. There could be an interesting tug-of-war here.

But the hit itself shouldn't have as much impact, right? If you're hit by a foam-covered object it doesn't strike you with the same impact as a blunt one. My thinking is that this would help reduce trauma from sub-concussive hits.
The handful of guys who wore these seemed to be okay:

Not certain about Three and Out, but Fourth and Long was definitely for sale at the MDen on State Street last year.

I've got to believe football helmets are going to change. That hard outer shell doesn't make sense. External padding wouldn't completely solve the problem but it would soften the impact of collisions somewhat.

I don't think they literally handed the game to us.

Harbaugh's Stanford teams didn't seem to have that issue:

Are we using this term now? I thought it was only something Spartan fans said.

Interesting. Did Hagerup speak at all?

I wouldn't be happy with it but it's year one of the Harbaugh era, so I wouldn't get too bent out of shape.
