- ...comparing Mullen at MSU to Les at LSU. That's apples/oranges. Compare Mullen to Okie State Les.
- Pulling upsets? That's what you want to base a hire on? Sure, beating good teams...but the flip side of pulling upsets and ending up with average records is bad losses.
- Todd Graham would be here less than 5 years. No way will M hire a guy like that, nor should they.
- So, is Jerry Kill a good coach? Can't upset Ohio State or Michigan (this year was not an upset); only beats lame teams
- If Kevin Wilson went 8-5 every year at Indiana but couldn't beat Ohio State, Michigan, Nebraska, Penn State, or Wisconsin, would you consider him a good coach?

...Schefter has lost some of it during this search, especially considering he's a Michigan alum.

This was the Monday after Minny game (Shane concussion). "Major announcement" was probably Brandon's statement and the new concussion awareness policies.

These are 17-18 year old kids making a life decision, one that includes what coach you play for; i.e., when they commit, they commit to a coach as much as anything. That when the coach is gone (or the writing's on the wall) and they decommit, to tell them to "fuck off" is douchebaggery at its finest.

...but he had to know Hackett's beliefs and values, and if Hunter was truly concerned about providing for his family during the holidays, or just simply wanted to avoid getting a pink slip in his stocking, he should've known better than to make statements to the press like his most recent ones.

If Hunter Lochman thinks the university added more value to Denard than vice versa, he needs a CAT scan.

...he could coach the team unless he was in the building, watching film, practice, interacting with players, etc. throughout the season. I'd be willing to bet that both Bielema and Andersen left b/c they felt micromanaged.

When you take the greatest strength of a team and turn it into its biggest weakness, that's a big deal. In basketball, one of five on the court is 20%, and that's assuming everyone has an equal role.
Right now, teams don't have to defend the interior much, and they can really extend on shooters, and help when they drive b/c the bigs we have now can't finish.

...but I personally would leave out FSU. Who have they played? The ACC is garbage. If FSU is already ranked below some 1-loss teams, why can't they be ranked below others? The question for the committee is to hypothetically match-up each of the teams and judge who's better.
So, they should take TCU, FSU, OSU, and BU and compare each against one another. On a neutral field, FSU would be a dog against every other team.
First, there is no reason to take TCU over Baylor. None. Zero, zip, nada. They played, and while Baylor had to come from behind, they racked up 782 yards on the #3 team in the country.
And while they lost at WVU, they dominated that game, but lost b/c they turned it over three times to WVU's zero.
To me, it comes down to FSU vs. OSU. Both played in weak conferences. Neither beat anyone of any significance. Sure, OSU lost a game, to a 6-6 Va. Tech squad. Too bad the 'Noles didn't play the Hokies so there could be some comparison. However, the Bucks' loss was in week two with a freshman QB and 4 new OL starters.
So, FSU is eliminated. Then it's OSU v. the Big 12 teams. I think Baylor and TCU are very evenly matched, and the Big 12 is stronger than the B1G. So long, Bucks.
My personal preference is to put only conference champions in and use the conferences as elimination rounds, so I would leave out TCU, but the best four teams, in my opinion, are Alabama, Oregon, Baylor, and TCU.
If I'm on the committee, my four are:
However, I might flop Baylor and Ohio State to get a B1G/Pac12 Rose Bowl. (/twists mustache)

...that makes me scoff when journalists look down their noses at bloggers.

They'll have a legitimate argument, having beaten TCU.
I love all this--just shows how dumb a field of 4 is. It'll be at least 6 next year, hopefully 8 on the way to eventually being 16.
Not to mention once the Presidents see the $$$$$, they're going to want to have more access.

Get well quickly, man.
I like the Cleveland Clinic advice above.
What I can suggest is that you eliminate all other sources of stress from your life. Have an attitude of gratitude at all times for the things in your life. Visualize yourself in vibrant health, and give thanks using that same atitude of gratitude, as if you are already healed.

Look, Mullen's not #1 on my list (haven't really written one down, but...), but to say he's medicore and hasn't done anything is just...

Of course people are going to think less of teams you beat after the fact.
And as for Auburn...they just put up almost 700 yards on a NFL JV team (Bama).
