for being one of the few media personae to use the term "dagger" correctly (instead of confusing it for "game winning shot" or "a good three pointer" or "any three-pt shot" or "any shot that goes in the bucket, generating points per regulation scoring in basketball").

people wouldn't be so anxious to see him off this mortal coil.
|1 week 6 hours ago||Totally agree.||
I'm always telling people, "you know what this country needs? More people sharing their opinions on everything."
|1 week 6 hours ago||His publicist should change the quote||
to "Pobody's Nerfect." It will generate less ire, because it's kind of cute.
|1 week 6 hours ago||63?||
I'll take the under, unless the mods are off on Fridays.
|1 week 3 days ago||Who comes off||
when nickelback comes in?
|2 weeks 11 hours ago||I think that last point is particularly important||
What's the longest stretch of time we can point to where we had an absolutely firm idea of our defensive philosophy (i.e., at the positional level) and what type of athlete we want at each spot? It takes years of consistent recruiting and player development to reach elite status as a unit on that side of the ball, and every reshuffle, in a way, just feels like restarting the clock yet again.
1. Believe in your system.
2. Recruit the players who are the right fit, not just the most starry.
3. Coach and develop with consistency over several years.
I don't know man. Yes, trust the coaches yada yada, but Jake MF Ryan was pretty comfortable where he was and good at what he was doing, as ugly as OSU was (which you're not going to convince would have been different with the new scheme the way our DL was getting blown off the line).

You cared enough to click on it and post a comment. So the answer to the question you pose is... you.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I totally empathize with the southerners||
We've also been getting hit pretty hard out here in the Silicon Valley area the past week. We've had a lot of clouds, and a couple of days ago it rained. This sucks, people are freaking out. We're all in this together, folks.

Someone order me some subs, 'cause that video is crazy.

If he's wearing Beats by Dr. Dre?

|5 weeks 6 hours ago||This raises that other question...||
WTF is the deal with Narduzzi still coaching at MSU? Why isn't he the head coach somewhere else by now? What, is he waiting for Saban to retire?
|5 weeks 2 days ago||This happens all the time||
I went to grad school (at Northwestern, no less) and received a full tuition scholarship for each year, plus a living stipend. I paid no taxes on the scholarship, and paid tax on the stipend just as anyone would for normal income.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||If you're giving those public service shout-outs anyway||
could you also say "pancreatic cancer is not ideal"? Because I don't think this point gets emphasized as much as it should, and as a result, there may be some confusion about it in the general populace. It's really not ideal, not at all.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Nice work man!||
Quick thinking. Thanks. Holy crap, that was seriously violent.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||This is great news||
have always wondered what Fran Tarkenton is like in person.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Class act all the way.||
I was about as neutral as you can get throughout the game, but after watching that display, I wish I'd been pulling for the 49ers.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||To my ex girlfriend*||
It was an awesome few months.
I know I talked often about settling down, but I didn't mean with you personally.
I wish nothing but the best for you in the future. Good luck finding another guy who will tolerate your friends.
With love, Me

|7 weeks 1 day ago||This was 10 years ago in Chicago.||
1. Realizing I was old: I was walking on the sidewalk in downtown and a couple of college-aged young ladies came up to me. "Excuse me, Sir, do you know how to get to such and such?"
WTF? Are they talking to me? Sir? That was devastating.
Also, the fact that this story took place 10 years ago also makes it worse in a meta-way.
EDIT: 2. Feeling less old: laying down some pipe with cute 20somethings. Its toolish and douchey, but I'm telling you, it works. My sister insists this is a path to spiritual emptiness, but I have to tell you my spirits are pretty damned good. My hair stayed dark, I haven't gained weight, my blood pressure is low, and all these things will be even better if Nuss works out.

Has pretty much gone the way of social security, man. Yes, it exists, but no one getting into the system now really expects it to be there years down the road.
|8 weeks 5 hours ago||Advice to Coach Nuss||
If you get to 26-for-26, stop right there bubba. That next carry for 1 yard just isn't gonna help.

The apocalypse is officially upon us all. Repent, sinners! Repent!
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Great post. That sums it up.||
But you know what the entire net of this post was for me?
It reminded me how much I miss Denard.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Several of the great OC game plans in recent UM history||
were courtesy of Coach Borges: the 2012-13 Outback Bowl vs. SC, the 2011 and 2013 OSU games, and the 2011 Nebraska game. There were other great offensive performances, such as ND 2011 and 2013 and Indiana 2013, but I always viewed those more as attributable to outstanding playmaking by the QBs and WRs more than the O plan, though obviously you can't separate the two entirely.
Wish everything had worked out better, but Coach B is a good guy who did the best he could with the cards on the table. Wish him the best. Thanks Coach.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Actually...||
that would have been my perfect world 3 years ago. RR stays on as OC, bring in new HC and DC+staff.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Please.||
Let's not go all "Michigan Man" bullshit on this hire. Just pick the most qualified dude who can call a game and recruit/develop talent.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Ho. Li. Fuk.||
I actually step away from MGoBlog for a couple hours to, you know, earn a living, and this is what happens.
Question (apologies, I didn't read through every single post to see if this has been asked and answered): what does this mean for the offensive assistants? Are they gone as well? Or is a new OC supposed to work with the pre-existing staff? If the answer to the latter is yes, that sounds like a recipe for GERG. OC should get to bring in his own staff to the extent the HC signs off on the hires.
Support the move (because obviously) but now that it's happened, I actually feel kinda bad for Al. I always liked him personally, and the impact on the families of the position coaches (if they're out the door as well) is rough. Wish Al and any others the best of luck.

is a loooooong way in the rearview mirror.
