Baylor. They'll accept a few down seasons if you get them to wins eventually. Less pressure than LSU, Texas, or USC.
|21 hours 20 min ago||No, because I trust this||
No, because I trust this defense to at least slow down mobile QBs enough and shut down the rest of their offense.
|1 week 1 day ago||Kansas I'll take, but WVU||
Kansas I'll take, but WVU just doesn't fit our academic standards. OU maybe. Texas would be great if they weren't such divas about everything.
|1 week 4 days ago||I'm more surprised that||
I'm more surprised that Alvarez is discussing injuries in the first place. Guy needs to let Chryst coach.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Brand is the issue?||
If they're complaining about their brand, they should put something better on the field. Unless they really want the Texas recruits, in which case why did they leave the Big 12?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Feta story||
I bought a block of nice feta once. I prefer Bulgarian, though some of the better Greek brands are starting to come to America. My roommate pulled it out and this conversation occurred:
Roommate: What is this?
M: It's feta.
R: But...I thought feta was crumbled.
M. It's a block of feta.
R: They make feta in BLOCKS?!
M. ...do you think it comes out of the sheep in crumbles?
|4 weeks 1 day ago||While I think he'll keep his||
While I think he'll keep his job for at least one more year, PSU has some decent options if they want to pull the trigger now. If they're smart, they'll point the money cannon at Tom Herman and try to steal him from Houston/LSU.
Fleck would be a big gamble, but it could work out. Alternatively, Fleck could replace Herman at Houston.
I would look for someone a bit more established, preferably from a P5 school already. If Charlie Strong wants to get out of the drama pit that is Texas, that would be a steal. More realistically, Chris Petersen from Washington comes to mind. It's a bit of a stretch, but I think the Penn State name could win out over Washington for him. See also Gary Patterson.
Chip Kelly might be a long shot, but if the 49ers are treating him like they did for Harbaugh, Chip might be ready to move again.

He should leave while he still has a massive advantage in the UM-MSU rivalry.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Texas would be great, with||
Texas would be great, with Cal as a close second. I'd be okay if the B1G monopolizes the research dollars.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||It's a fair response. We||
It's a fair response. We don't need to wear the chip on our shoulder like they do, and we can't deny their success over the past few years.
I wanna hear how he talks about it to his players. I bet it's a lot less reserved.
|9 weeks 4 hours ago||Because we need the LT||
Because we need the LT support this year, Taylor Lewan would be amazing on this team.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||While I expect the Big 12 to||
While I expect the Big 12 to go to 12 in the near future, the B1G probably won't expand again until the ACC reaches the end of their current media deal, which keeps revenue in the ACC even if a team leaves.
At that point, I think all hell breaks loose and either the Big 12 scoops up some of the ACC teams (FSU, GT) or the Big 12 collapses and is absorbed by the B1G, ACC, and SEC. Hopefully by then Delany will have retired and we will see good expansion to 16 (or 20?).

Dammit, I had Rage Stripping winning it all. There goes my bracket.
|25 weeks 6 days ago||Nussmeier||
After the debacle that was Al Borges, I figured that Nussmeier (who we paid over 750k for to seatl from Alabama) would fix the offense and work well in Hoke's system with senior Devin Gardner. And then 2014 happened.
He couldn't use Devin's mobility, he didn't improve our tempo or O-line issues, and was just a terrible OC. A lot of the issues could be placed on Al Borges's failures, but with the vast improvement under Drevno and Fisch, I think we greatly overestimated Nussmeier.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||Best quote||
"It is important that Jim Harbaugh does not get what he wants, ever. The world is happier when he is sad. Jim Harbaugh likes satellite camps, and therefore they should be illegal."
Pretty much the SEC's main argument.
|28 weeks 4 days ago||He's got a team of writers||
He's got a team of writers drafting the perfect subtweet to insult the NCAA, the SEC, and the MWC in 135 characters. This is a one-day story I wouldn't mind turning into a two-day story.
|28 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed, and that concept can||
Agreed, and that concept can be distilled into 2, maybe 3 classes, not a semester. Or maybe I just had a really bad professor. They've gotten rid of Transnat as a requirement now, it's just an international law class requirement.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, ME395 was the worst. Too||
Yes, ME395 was the worst. Too little time, not enough direction, and we had no idea what we were doing most of the time. Even worse than law school (though Transnat comes close).
|30 weeks 49 min ago||"Speight" rhymes with||
"Speight" rhymes with "weight." Not that I'm trying to body shame him or anything.
|31 weeks 1 day ago||I had my ~800 points for more||
I had my ~800 points for more than 5 years, from like 3 freezes ago. A shame that no one will know my infrequent posting trends.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||No, I can't go back to Constantinople||
I'm trying to find a picture of a Greek weather report that says "Konstantinoupole" where Istanbul is. I've seen it before, but no luck so far.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||Take me back to Constantinople||
TBH some of us do still call it Constantinople. Old habits die hard.
|38 weeks 4 days ago||Academics||
He's going to Stanford over us for the academics? That's...a really smart decision. Not a lot we can if that's his reason.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||How awesome was Hackett? Let's count the ways.||
(1) Got Jim Harbaugh.
(2) Filled Michigan Stadium.
(3) Negotaited huge Nike deal.
(4) Trying to expand Maize Rage.
EDIT: Looks like I hit Enter too early.

I have T-Mobile, and my service is fantastic in Michigan Stadium. No delay for Twitter, Facebook was pretty fast too. I can even text and make calls, something I could never really do with ATT.
|44 weeks 55 min ago||I'll admit, I wouldhave liked||
I'll admit, I wouldhave liked to see him at QB, but I'm okay with multitasking players, especially if he can put up Jake Butt type numbers under Shane, O'Korn, or Peters. Hell, doing some Braxtonesque trickery where he gets to rep at QB on occasion would be a lot of fun to see. We saw this kinda work with the Devin/Denard combos (going both ways), and with Harbaugh, it could be a lot of fun.

It's been said 1000 times, so I'll say it the 1001st: Denard.
