Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.

the history of IMG Academy, it started as the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy. They have trained 10 #1 players in the world in tennis over the past 30 years. While football is a recent endeavor there, they have been doing the boarding school thing for a long time for world class tennis players (Monica Seles, Andre Agassi, Maria Sharapova, and Jalena Jankovic to name a few)

6-5-1, 6-6, 7-5, 6-6, 9-2. That is his record at MSU...which is one good year preceded by mediocrity. At LSU he had 1 season where he lost fewer than 3 games...yes he won the NC that year. Apart from Alabama he has been good, not great. Compare this to Urban Meyer
Lloyd Carr's winning percentage is .753....Nick Saban's is .758.....Urban Meyer .851

I would suggest that if you are saying your sig line follows the order of your priorities...I would hope that you reconsider. If #3 fails, your are unqualified for #2.

how the game against OSU has gone most of the past 12 years...I would say you are getting anal.... just not how you anticipated it. I hope she has been gentle.

to wonder, because my entire family are OSU fans, however; in one of the threads on Leavitt, someone mentioned that it would be interesting to hear what they say taking into account the Woody Hayes incident. As I was searching the articles on Leavitt...I found the buckeye planet article and thought I'd share.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||You should read more about||
You should read more about the case. There are stories that USF was looking to get rid of Leavitt before the incident and that President Judy Genshaft was looking to find a new coach to get the team over the hump but didn't want to pay the buyout of 7 million for firing without cause. There was a FHP Trooper in the lockerroom at the time that wrote a statement claiming that Leavitt did not slap or choke the player
For those of you who wonder what tOSU fans might say...here you go.

He started the USF football program out of a trailer and in 11 years had them to a point where they were ranked (I believe) as high as #2 mid-season.

And USF settled a wrongful termination suit with Leavitt for 2.75 Million where both sides are prohibited from discussing the events.
He was very well respected up to that point in the community.

teams and I see running backs squirt through holes that our backs get stuffed in all the time. These are not highly touted backs...just your average running backs. De'Veon Smith runs angry when he can get his feet churning, but does not slip through creases. A great running back can make your mediocre OL look good. They don't need huge holes, and they don't need you to sustain blocks for 3-4 seconds. They see the hole, hit the hole, and are at the second level quickly. We have not had that guy for years.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Yes....||
that is both parks...having said that, for $166.99 you can get a two day ticket and $176.99 gets you 3.

I live a couple hours away and last Christmas was the first time I have gone in like 16 years. I grew up with Cedar Point and King's Island...Disney is not the same kind of park.

I just checked prices for Universal....they are $147 for 1 day. $105 for a day at Disney now looks like a deal.

the results of the toxicology report state that the causeway cannibal had no exotic drugs in his system, or adulterants...the only thing they did find was....marijuana
|9 weeks 23 hours ago||Well...||
For a journalist to ask the guy who won the MVP what he felt about a specific teammate voting for a different person is not really news worthy and only serves to divide. IMO it was a serious dick move...Hey Jehu, how do you feel about Graham Glasgow voting for Jake Rudock as MVP? What is the purpose of a question like that other than to create division? I have no problem with individual accolades, I do, however, have an issue with a member of the media putting teammates on the spot like that. Is he supposed to criticize Graham or Jake? Promote himeself?
I may be all alone in this sentiment, but I felt the question was in poor taste.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Except...||
Jehu was the team MVP and not Jake. Whoever asked Jehu about Graham's vote for MVP (he voted for Jake) ought to be banished from player pressers for ever. Perhaps that is a bit strong, but when a "journalist" askes questions that can tear at team unity they should be shown the door IMO.

my MRI revealed a tear in the supraspinatus. When my Orthopedic got in there he found a tear in the labrum and a third that I do not recall. I was told not to worry about further injury on mine as long as I could tolerate the pain I was ok to do what I wanted until I chose to have surgery. Further injury would not affect the time it took t heal from surgery...which for me was about 1 year.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah...||
but it is not unprecedented...Ohio State lost to Findlay and MSU lost to GVSU in the same year, 2007. MSU was ranked 8th at the time.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Rudock gives Harbaugh the||
Rudock gives Harbaugh the ability to call 3 plays and get into the right one on the line of scrimmage. I think that is why we have seen Jake as the starter...he gives us a schematic advantage. Rudock's limitations are frustrating
|15 weeks 5 days ago||Paying for parking....||
I have never been to a school where you did not have to pay to park. The proceed do not necessarily go to athletics, at our school the ROTC handles the parking lot and receives to proceeds from it as well.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||That and weather....||
At 10 PM last night when I checked...
Paramus, NJ 47 degree and 52% humidity
Bradenton, FL 75 degrees and 72% humidity.
I would guess that the temperature at kickoff was close to 85 degrees, I'd bet that is the warmest kickoff temperature Paramus has had all year....and is mild for what IMG is accustomed to. Obviously this has to do with conditioning...but it is hard to prepare for weather you have not been exposoed to.
|15 weeks 5 days ago||They started||
out as the Nick Bolitierri Tennis Academy and helped produce the likes of Andre Agassi and Maria Sharapova, so yeah I guess they take it to another level. This has been going on for decades with private schools and now we find it nauseating. Public schools are now recruiting as well and with open school districts there isn't much that can be done about it...at least not in Florida.

Harbaugh isn't a big fan of the red shirt, except for QBs and OL. He said in his press conference that this is the time of year that you find out if the freshman can play or not....and the ones that can are the ones will make impactful contributions down the road and into the professional level. I would agree. If you want an elite team, you do not get there by giving mass numbers a 5th year.

"There's a team criteria, a unit criteria and an individual criteria," Harbaugh said Monday. "Amara Darboh had the most stickers (after the Utah game)."
