There isn't much of a system to play in right now given the absolutely atrocious state of the personnel, particularly the OL and entire defense (I know that no defense doesn't have anything to do with offensive execution per se, but the team is a tire fire in every direction).
Somebody will hire the Shananhan posse, but their (specifically Mike's) cachet and value are way lower than they were before.
And I like Cousins on the Skins. He's played pretty well in the past and I think he'll be a perfectly competent replacement to the extent he can stay in the pocket for more than one second without getting crushed. But anyone that hires Shananhan based on whatever Cousins can do in the last three weeks over the (dead) body of work he's produced over three years, well that's on them.

Spoken as a lifelong Washingtonian and Skins fan, the chatter around Cousins getting the starting nod might have as much to do with internal team politics as it does anything else. The Post (link) ran a long story on the complete disgust that Danny Boy and Shanahan have for each other with a lot of folks suggesting that Shanahan is trying to get fired so as to collect his $7M for next season.
I think the move is utterly disinegous, if ultimately correct. RGIII is broken and needs to reast for a long time, but there is no chance Mike Shananhan gives a rats ass about next year's Washington Redskins.

Maybe not "they" the SEC but "they" the media et al. It is taken as gospel at this point that the SEC is hands down better than everyone else, and when their championship game yields a 60-40 scoreline it is an amazing display of offensive acumen and parity, whereas anyone would be chided for having a one-sided outfit.
I think MSU could probably beat Auburn and Mizzou because the new look MSU offense is certainly competent enough to put up 30-40 points on either and the defense would be the first either team has seen this season.
At some point it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy of greatness and that point came a few years ago.

missing /s? Get off of your horse. I'd term the OP pretty informative and useful, typos and all.

Why the hate on New Haven? We've got at least as many restaurants and general things to do as Hartford does and frankly it's a nicer place.

Note about 84 is part of it is closed this weekend near the NYS/CT line (this according to highway signs last weekend). And the traffic between Danbury and Waterbury is sometimes as bad as 95 since it's two lanes in a lot of spots.

As a New Haven resident, I will strongly second the "stay the hell away from 95 in CT" point.If you must drive up from the NYC area, the Merritt/Wilbur Cross Pkwy is a much better way to do things.

Couldn't stop them on D? ND had 23 offensive points...we didn't stop them cold but saying we could not stop them seems a bit much.

Went a few years back...second the oversized HS stadium feelings, and we just showed up and bought tickets in the parking lot at face value off of some folks who were tailgating

Thanks. It's a little depressing that nearly the entirety of the trafficked college sports blog world is an SBNation production.

Yes, perhaps Dayne Crist will go to Wisconsin. Paul Chryst probably won't be there with him.

This is pretty tangent to the point at hand, and I'm not much of a Tebow apologist, but the 3/16 is pretty misleading...there were at least 6 flat drops in there. He might not have been the reason they ultimately won (Marion Barber would like a word), but he wasn't nearly as incompetent as the numbers suggest.

Read the article or see my reply above. He made some bad life choices, ended up in jail for a while, but now has it together to the point where he's probably a viable, low level NFL prospect.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||Unfortunate||
I went to HS with him and he didn't have it together in any way, ending up in prison for five years after an armed robbery. He got out and got it together and by all accounts has been in no trouble in the last 4 years so it's doubly shitty for him to lose the end of his senior season to some jackass who wanted to be macho.
While I wished him no luck or a pat on the back during the M game, he's the epitome of someone who turned their life around and for that should absolutely be commended.
Hopefully it wasn't serious enough to keep him out of their likely bowl game.

With all due respect, as a 25 year resident of DC, nobody here gives a hoot about UVA, and maybe like 39 people give a hoot about Maryland football, the juggernaut that they are. On Saturdays you see more Big 10 fans of all schools than anyone else by a country mile.

Is this not significantly different from residency? hone your craft while making beans/nothing during that period.

Good old Big Ten/SEC matchup featuring OSU and Villanova...good reporting here ESPN.

Attempting to contrast ourselves with Indiana might not be the best debating position here. They have been a model of consistency for some time...I'm not sure it much matters where their players are coming from if you are always good.

My two cents on JMFK:
I was back in Ann Arbor tailgating on Division just north of Hill St before one of the September games in 2009. This particular spot happens to have a lot of the team walking down the block between Central campus and the stadium in the hours before the game.
We're out by the street and I spotted an obvious player walking by judging by his warmup and bag, but I didn't recognize him. After shouting out to him what position he played and getting the response "Quarterback", I said back to him you must be Jack Kennedy. I don't think I've ever seen any athlete at any level as happy to be recognized as he was that day. (Though still not happy enough to accept our offer of beer...)
The end. Go Blue.

Let's say, for the sake of argument, that everything you've said here is in fact correct. What do you propose the solution be? Shall we start making every job everywhere exactly proportional to the racial mix of some population (because let's be honest, diversity only means race in most corners of this country)?
The University of Michigan Law School took a stroll down this road not too long ago, and you might recall what the Supreme Court thought about the idea.

Perhaps, but so would a staff of Buddhist monks from Tibet.
Coaching a top ten NFL defense is a great way to bridge the gap between old white guy and prospective college football player.
