|2 days 21 hours ago||I haven't||
I haven't read or seen much to indicate that this is a "backup plan" for Gentry. Not to mention, it doesn't seem like Harbaugh would go after a guy that would avoid competition like that.

"As for him not liking his co-workers or owner, shit happens; it's not a great reason to leave."
I respectfully disagree. While I have no clue what the exact motives Marrone had in his decision, leaving a job because you're unhappy with co-workers, owner and management is a perfectly valid reason.
However, where I differ from Marrone is I would be damn sure I have a new job lined up before leaving. :)
|1 week 1 day ago||When||
When you're clearly head and shoulders above the competition, that obviously can't even remotely handle the press, you're really not going to get any real "practice" by pushing on for the entire game.

Poor stringer? Where you saying that as he was being all shady with D'Angelo and his girl? Or doing shit to Wallace and Avon?
Stringer didn't want to change, he wanted people to think he was changing. He always wanted/thought to be better than everyone else he was with, and took going "legit" as a way to step up ontop of everyone else. But he wasn't really truly trying to be legit.He was the same as everyone else around him, but always just looked down his nose. Drove me crazy man.
I'd say I'm Team Avon for the record.

An OSU fan would like Stringer. I freaking hated that guy with a passion.

Google found this.
|1 week 3 days ago||I may be wrong||
I believe that Brian has used the "I'll eat a Lemon" line a few times before as well. This was just the first time he used it and was kinda sorta wrong.

You just described the Michigan Fanbase during most of Lloyd's years.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I found this to be pretty hilarious.||
"Not news: An unemployed Michigan alum goes back home to visit family and friends wearing a Michigan hat. (Everyday life for most alums)"
Actually, I found the entire account to be pretty hilarious. Kinda sad to see it go.

So it's just things you imagine in your head rather than reality. Gotcha.
Thanks for clearing that up!
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Hmm||
Also, Hoke's tenure was nowhere near as bad as RR's. BCS bowl, kids graduating, and a pretty well stocked team (QB not included) for the next coach.
Lets see, a BCS bowl that we kinda fell into, (and had a lucky ref call go our way to win.) using RRs offensive system and recurits.
I don't recall RR having issues with students graduating, I'm assuming you're referring to the APR while he was here? Or was there an issue there that I'm either forgetting or never knew about?
Hoke did recruit star talent much better than RR did, I can give you that much.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||While||
While he may have plenty of offers in the NFL that he can use as leverage. That doesn't mean they're were going to be $8M offers that he could leverage. There is a very large and clear difference there.
I would dismiss the second tweet for different reasons, but I certainly wouldn't do so for the reason you're giving.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Not so sure||
I'm not so sure about that one. Seems like a decent reach to me, and a situation that Michigan wouldn't really see any benefit from... they can already be pretty damn picky.
Not to mention, that sure is looking at a pretty small portion of the overall situation.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||What the||
"Lowest risk surgeries=highly rated recruiting classes."
This is probably the worst analogy i've ever read. And boy is that saying something.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Um||
You're forgetting the UConn Game.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||Code||
"The issues are that Beilein runs a relatively clean program, is focused on grades and character, and doesn't pursue many one and done types.
I'd be willing to bet that his selective criteria eliminates 66-75% of the top 100 recruits from consideration."
This is known as "Speaking the code."

Oh no doubt, he made some sick throws in college. The one I remember the most is actually the Capital One Bowl, pretty sure first touchdown of the game where he rifled it into a super small window between the saftey and corner.
However, consistency was never a strong point of his. Tacopants was a regularly targeted reciever for him.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Well||
Because it's extremely difficult to be a good QB in the NFL. That's really about it.
Chad was never an amazing QB even while at Michigan. He put up very good numbers and I loved having him as the QB on our team, don't get me wrong. But he was never the star of the offense, and he had a LOT of talent around him too.
He's also played for teams that had average to below average talent, even while at Miami. He's not the type of QB that's going to make everyone around him much better, but he is the type of QB that can play with talent.
He's a solid backup QB in the NFL. That still puts him at the top .01% of QBs in the world. (48% of statistics are made up on the spot BTW)
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Please explain||
Please explain why that is. I'd truly love to hear why.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Soo||
So, just so I understand your argument here.
You agree that Curry would "dust" Nik because he shot 44% from three while averaging 10+ threes a game (Ignoring that he shot just 38% the following year)
Vs Nik, who shot 44.2% this year (vs curry's %43.9 high) and had a higher career as well at 44.1% vs 41% for curry.
The only advantage for Curry is he jacked up more 3s (9.6/gm vs 5.2/gm)
Don't get me wrong here, I think it would be extremely entertaining and close. However, I do think it's ridiculous to believe curry would "dust" Nik while using those stats as the reason why.
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Eh||
I can see why they would want to be able to say that. But I don't see any reason as to why they should be able to say that.
Who cares what the current school wants, it shouldn't matter at all... especially if these guys are "students"
|36 weeks 2 days ago||I don't||
I don't believe many people have said it's a dumb idea because of unbundling. But because of the clear shift to streaming and a lack of purchasing cable TV all together.
Also, and I may be missing something, that article seems to be a little light on facts and a little heavy on assumptions.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||Timelines don't match||
The timeline for taking Isaac and getting Damien don't line up. Ty will be making his decision very soon while Damien won't be for almost a year.
That being said, we are certainly closer to home. If we have a shot at him I say we should try to re-light that fire.

Can anyone explain to me the fascination behind mock drafts?
I just don't get it at all. Year after year they're hardly ever even close to being right, but so many people just eat em up. Why?

Did any other show take a nose dive in plot and writing and quickly as Heroes?
|40 weeks 2 days ago||Ahh Into the wind||
I completely forgot about that one!
I was thinking about Hillsborough vs Two Escobars for my #1, but man.. Into the wind is up there. That one was great as well.
