First of all Andrew Luck is a REDSHIRT SOPHOMORE. But anyway, on to your question. I can't speak for others that want Harbaugh, but I think your question raises an important point. Some say that people only want Harbaugh because he went to UM, but as you say, people weren't clamoring for him before now. As for me (a person who wants JH to replace RR), I supported RR from day one. I liked the hire and was excited about it. I thought at the time it was too soon to hire Harbaugh. After Stanford had a decent run last year and we had a losing record again, I still supported RR and was willing to give him another year. I also knew that if JH kept it up and RR kept losing, I was going to want him to coach here. Then after this year, when Harbaugh lost his Heisman Trophy runner-up RB and yet improved his team's record to 11-1, while our team got either pasted or beat handily by the top half of the Big Ten, I knew it was time for a change. Harbaugh has proven himself now and has done enough to earn the coaching position at Michigan. If we hired him three years ago, I honestly think we would be in much, much better shape than we are in now, but he hadn't done enough at the time. We didn't know he was this good of a coach. Now we do and it's time for him to come home.

Can it not be true that we both needed a transition and that RR is not the right person? What have you seen to be convinced that we are going to be dominant in recruiting? What have you seen that suggests we are going to contend for national championships? I think you really just assume this stuff but after watching our team for 12 games, we don't seem close to competing for a top 3 finish in the Big Ten, let alone a MNC. We definitely aren't burning up the recruiting trail. I agree we needed some sort of change but that doesn't mean we chose the right guy to do it.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||But his thread title stated||
But his thread title stated that Wojo was "at it again," presumably meaning he was again suggesting Rod should be fired. I think that is the part with which the second poster was taking umbrage. Even the most ardent supporter of RR can no longer say that people calling for his ouster are out of line.
|4 years 14 weeks ago||I think that is what is so||
I think that is what is so distressing--the "had the offense started earlier" excuse can be applied to 3 of our 4 losses (our offense against MSU never really came around). One or two slow starts is expected but three starts to seem like a pattern, We can debate the reasons until we are blue in the face but the fact remains that when we needed our offense to keep pace with the other teams', it didn't.

we are supposed to celebrate this? you only need to win 50% of your games to make a bowl. you have to basically try not to make a bowl.

Bruce Feldman said on the radio this morning that Mizzou to the B10 is pretty much a done deal. Apparently he said it on KOMC.
|4 years 44 weeks ago||That wouldn't be the case||
There is no way OSU wouldn't automatically be on our schedule. That's only 3 conference games in your division, so there are 5 others to be filled. I'd guess there would be one locked-in opponent for us and the other 4 would rotate. Not sure how it would work logistically, but I see no way that the B10 would ever do away with UM/OSU on an annual basis

can't take stupid fucking penalties like that when you are trying to get to the frozen four. completely unnecessary

into buying the Emery Cat yet? I don't even have cats but the seeing that ad 200 times in the last two days is wearing on me. Might have to order

I don't get to watch a lot of Michigan hockey, but my god do we take a lot of undisciplined penalties

I get back to A2 for at least one game every season and I will be there for the first night game without a doubt.
There is a different feeling in there when the sky is pitch black. Maybe it was because of how they finished, but the walk back to campus in the dark after thrilling OT victories over PSU and MSU were amazing. Really hope that this is true.

If you want to indulge, then go to Sona and get the tasting menu. The chef is David Myers and he is amazing. I have only been once, but it was by far the best (and most expensive) meal I have ever had. It is on La Cienega just north of Beverly Blvd and you will not be disappointed.
--Umami Burger (few different locations in Hollywood. quite possibly the best burger in town, if not the hippest)

I can report that his hands aren't the only part of Ralph's anatomy that is gigantic. I had a membership to a gym on Eisenhower and State my senior year and Ralph had one there too. Let's just say that he was not a fan of wearing anything but super tight, hiked up spandex when he worked out and I saw a lot more of Ralph Williams than I ever wanted to.
My favorite teacher was definitely Matt Lassiter. Loved his use of pop culture to teach history. Very informative and entertaining lectures

I'm very intimated with the size of Infinite Jest. I get anxiety thinking about opening to the first page. I'm going to do it though once my Kindle comes in the mail. This way I won't have to lug that thing around
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Anything Russian||
Love the suggestions everyone. Anyone have any suggestions on books about Post-Communist Russia? I'm fascinated with it, especially after Scott Anderson's article in GQ:
For those that are haven't heard about it, Anderson wrote this piece on the FSB apartment bombings that took place around the turn of the Century. The reason that I didn't provide a GQ link is because you can't find it on their website. They ran the article, but tried every way possible to bury it. Here's an NPR article on why Conde Nast buried it and tried to make sure it wasn't read in Russia: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=112530364
It's fascinating stuff and Anderson's investigative article is amazing.

RR's WVU teams putting up big points on bad teams. I think he will let the guys score points and I think it will be a lopsided win

I figured the resident expert would weigh in on this one
