|1 day 10 hours ago||he's not my most trusted source||
but he's close in the pecking order:
2) BBC World Service
3) Dr. Mantis Toboggan
|1 day 10 hours ago||Over Macho Grande?||
No, I don't think I'll ever get over Macho Grande.
|3 days 6 hours ago||This dude||
|3 days 18 hours ago||Hmmmm...||
|5 days 3 hours ago||What's YOUR deal?||
|5 days 6 hours ago||I'm glad he didn't say||
"our goal is to have a great week of practice."
|6 days 11 hours ago||Excellent.||
Keep planting that crop, harvest around... oh, 2019 as a redshirt Jr.? Plenty of time. Great get, in keeping with the theme of bringing in hard-to-find athletes and coaching them up for a few years before unleashing.
|1 week 8 hours ago||yeah, this is a lock.||
But if he had a common name like... oh, Ron Mexico, Jr., then I'd consider it a bit of a stretch.
|1 week 9 hours ago||That depends||
Is he fast?
|1 week 11 hours ago||Sacre bleu!||
I mean... sacre blue!
Obscure is right, but let's judge in about 2018 or '19 when we see what a team full of Harbaugh recruits can do. His willingness to reach and give offers to totally off-the-radar prospects is either insanity or brilliance. I choose to believe mad genius. Mwahahahahahaha.
|1 week 1 day ago||Why can't he follow the good example set by Snoop?||
Snoop's kid Cordell is on that UCLA team, and you don't see him getting into "altercations" with coaches. Snoop respects authority. Be like Snoop.
|1 week 1 day ago||"ummm.... is there any chance...||
.... I could just dig a hole right here and get into it until the game is over?"
|1 week 2 days ago||You mean besides "Enter the Dragon", right?||
In that case, I would say Ip Man.
|1 week 2 days ago||So, Chris, you were reading MGoBlog?||
"Yes, but I was only there getting directions on how to get away from there."
|1 week 2 days ago||Yo, listen up|
|1 week 3 days ago||You mean this awesome Antonio Brown footwork?||
I'd take the 15-yd. penalty if Vic V. did this against Sparty or Ohio
|1 week 3 days ago||that's also||
what she said.
I can't believe I find this funny. I should seek help.
|1 week 3 days ago||That's||
what she said.
|1 week 3 days ago||I think Dolph Lundgren could have made a decent DE.|
|1 week 3 days ago||totally||
other than the athleticism and physique part. Things worked out for Tom, though.
|1 week 4 days ago||Your story is becoming more common.||
The company I work for out here often acquires smaller companies, usually for the engineering talent. The problem we're running into more and more often is that if they're based somewhere where the cost of living is dramatically lower, there is no way the salary is going to compensate.
Orlando is a perfect example. We acquired a company in the Orlando area and a number of the engineers refused to come, because moving to Silicon Valley meant switching their 4-bedroom palace with a big yard for a 2-bed dilapidated shack. So we actually have people who fly here 2 weeks a month and work from a quiet Orlando office the other two weeks. Crazy, man.
People who want to know how this bubble deflates, that's probably it-- companies losing out on talent eventually say to hell with this, we're relocating somewhere we can attract top talent, and startups stop starting up here and go to the midwest, south, or pretty much anywhere else besides Honolulu or Manhattan.
|1 week 4 days ago||Obligatory||
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
|1 week 5 days ago||I was going to go with this, which was by a pro sketch artist||
the famous "Muppet" sketch, which everyone laughed about until... it worked.
|1 week 6 days ago||While we're accepting hard truths||
1. All Fruit Loops taste the same, regardless of color.
2. Cap'n Crunch is not a real captain, as indicated by his shoulder insignia.
Cereal truth. The more you know.

|1 week 6 days ago||I think that's a few||
and the article considered it, but if memory serves a commit who signs on Signing Day doesn't necessarily find out if he's accepted into school until later in the spring with the other students. I seem to remember Demar Dorsey didn't find out until well after signing day, but who knows, maybe Stanford has a different process?
Here's the link if you have a Rivals subscription
Here's the most pertinent quote, might throw this up on the board for discussion if we really get into a numbers issue soon:
So.... I don't know man. Benefit of the doubt? Benefit of the doubt.
|1 week 6 days ago||I think it's perfectly reasonable to be concerned.||
This might be the topic of it's own post in the coming days, but Mike Spath at Rivals had an editorial that raised some legit things to think about. Basically, he mentioned that while at Stanford, JH used a strategy of filling up the class early but continuing to "evaluate" players throughout and making room for hotter prospects if they wanted in by coming to a mutual understanding with the less-hot prospect that they should look for other opportunities.
In 2010, Stanford had 18 decommittments in recruiting class. Yikes. Many of them surely did what recruits do and just changed their minds. But some maybe... didn't? Doubt we'll get that many de-coms, but at some point we may have to re-calibrate our high-mindedness about recruiting strategy and oversigning, etc.
Until it actually happens, though... meh. Let's wait and see. Deep down, I can't imagine JH would risk the PR nightmare that could ensue by yanking an offer to a kid who really wants to be here just to open up a spot for a higher-rated kid. Plus, I just don't think that's how the guy rolls.
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||HARBAUGH STRENGTHS||
-Keeping a low profile
-Not upsetting people
-Bronzed upper body physique reminiscent of Greek God
-Not sure which foot to put in ground before throw
-Needs more enthusiam for job
-Looking beyond backyard for recruiting talent
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||change of direction is a problem?||
Not sure what's on the embedded video as it doesn't run for me, but at 1:00 of the "Vicious Vic 2014-2015 Full Season" video on Hudl page, he puts a DB on his butt with nothing but change of direction. Awesome and hilarious.
Also, he seems to genuinely begrudge people with the temerity to attempt tackling him.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||What's||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Damn, you beat me to this.||
Don't forget AIDA either.
Attention. Do I have your attention?
Interest. Are you interested? I know you are because it's fuck or walk. You close, or you hit the bricks.
Decision. Have you made your decision for Christ?
Harbaugh would be briliant at giving that speech, and he would have finished by saying "R-F-I-T-G-T. RIGHT FOOT IN THE GROUND, THROW."
