does not have a fall guy (Reggie certainly won't do it!) and he is on the hook for $300k...at least that is the last episode of Ballers I "seen."
|5 days 11 hours ago||Crazy that||
they are reporting Enis' stats from a video game!
|6 days 20 hours ago||I have as difficult as time as many||
of you in predicting wins and losses. I think what makes it especially tough is the road struggles in college football, and the recent memory of Michigan's struggles on the road, particularly the first roadie.
Looking at opponents, so many games seem winnable. But that Utah game, a Thursday night opener out west, will be a tough environment. BYU will present challenges with a mobile quarterback, assuming Hill is 100% (didn't he get hurt relatively late in the season last year?). I think that night game at Maryland might be a challenge, too. Michigan State is solid. And then again, at Minnesota on Halloween Night. If Michigan is say 8-1, ranked #7 in the country, with a showdown looming against #1 Ohio State, the Penn State game would be the ultimate trap game, one featuring a potential top draft pick QB.
We can hope though, right?
|1 week 6 days ago||I can hear his voice perfectly in my head...||
and I love when he gets excited over very little. I can't wait for the first toss sweep to the long side of the field and his "There HE GOES! Oh, what A STIFF ARM!!! And he' s RUN out of bounds for a one yard GAIN."
|1 week 6 days ago||I haven't scoured the Notre Dame||
boards or looked much into the reaction to the unis, but are you sure it is something most people hate? I clearly understand why this board, coming from a rival of ND and with heavy tradition, not liking the different uniforms. It would be contradictory of me to speculate, but I will...I would imagine a lot of ND fans like seeing different unis, playing at neutral sites, and looking to blend tradition with the changing times.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||Agreed...I could see him||
coming to campus each fall to work with the QBs during camp...but I do not think he would be able to commit to being a head coach.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||I think having 4 wins||
and making 2 more Super Bowl trips, plus not having Jerry Rice, John Taylor, etc. gives the nod to Brady,
|34 weeks 1 day ago||I never heard about Kessler||
leaving...the backup only threw like 7 passes. When was Kessler getting passed up?
|34 weeks 6 days ago||I don't think there will be||
any big declaration of "Sorry" if Harbaugh does pick Michigan. I actually haven't understood all of the anger directed towards the NFL guys during this search. College guys have sources, NFL guys have sources. It is not the first time one group is wrong about something that is reported.
My guess is that a lot of the NFL guys will be asking their sources "What the hell man?" and then potentially looking for other/more sources. I don't think there will be much beyond that. Although, if you are watching Sportscenter and see a topic on the left side of the screen "Schefty apologizes to MGoBloggers," DVR it,
|34 weeks 6 days ago||It has come to my||
attention that you and the cleaning woman have engaged in sexual intercourse on the desk in your office. Is that correct?
Was that wrong? I tell you I gotta plead ignorance on this thing.
|35 weeks 1 day ago||NFL.com telling us "our" business?||
Isn't information, credible or not, good or bad, regarding an NFL coach literally "their" business?
|35 weeks 2 days ago||Maybe it is a reference||
to the fall of the Lakers...Kobe went from winning a title in 2009-2010 to getting hit with the injury bug to now being on one of the worst teams in the NBA. Perhaps Taco is seeing a parallel with Michigan?
|35 weeks 2 days ago||I wasn't sure which one to reply to...||
Do you have a problem with Adam Schefter?
|35 weeks 2 days ago||What a great episode...||
I have always loved the scene when Kramer brings in the bag of bagels to Jerry's apartment:
KRAMER: It felt so good to get my hands back in taht dough.
JERRY: Your hands were in the dough?
KRAMER: No, I didn't make these bagels. Yeah, they're day-olds. The homeless won't even touch them. Oh, we try to fool them by putting a few fresh ones on top, but they dig.. they, they test.
Also, I can't believe this episode was from the last season. Just seems like it happened much earlier in the series.
|35 weeks 2 days ago||I think that||
Harbaugh would retire the #4 jersey, unless a special QB comes around to wear it. Perhaps they are also working on a deal with this company???
Michigan will be their launching pad!
|35 weeks 3 days ago||I would imagine||
a lot of coaches would get off on the fact they were traded for...and they would most likely have the belief they could fix any situation, given enough control.
|35 weeks 5 days ago||Well I'm friends with Newman,||
mostly because we share a love of Kenny Roger's Roasters, and he told me he delivered what looked to be like a contract-sized envelope from a Mr. Jim Harbaugh to the UM Athletic Department.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||pkatz's||
comment was about as correct as the comment above this.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||If he doesn't come||
will you tweet all those people an apology for not believing them? Just seeing what your Dragon Ball training will lead you to do.
|37 weeks 3 days ago||Hell yes...||
I'm picturing like a Total Recall thing. Just imagine, some Ohio State gunner on a punt coverage thinks he is about to "run into" the Harbaugh hologram, but it's the really Jimmy, who lowers his shoulder and sends the Buckeye flying backwards. This must happen.
|37 weeks 3 days ago||I don't see why he can't coach Michigan||
and an NFL team??? I mean, Michigan plays one Thursday night game, then Saturdays. He's young enough and lively enough to work on a Saturday and Sunday, right?
|37 weeks 4 days ago||I think it was actually 60.5 to 39.5,||
but Sam Webb cannot round correctly.
|37 weeks 5 days ago||We used to do a||
modified QB chllenge. We loved watching the old NFL challenges where the QBs would throw it as far as they could, then try to hit those moving bullseye targets. We did it with cars though, so we got some pretty good conditioning out of it as well. Basically, take a mini rubber football, stand at a certain distance, wait for a car, chuck, and run like hell!
|38 weeks 1 day ago||West Virginia did beat Baylor...||
but their 5 losses are:
a competitive opener to #1 Bama by 10
kind of a bad loss to #20 Oklahoma at home by 12
to #3 TCU on a late field goal by a point
another bad loss at Texas by 17
to #9 K State by 6
Not your typical 5 loss team. Meanwhile, TCU's big Minnesota win keeps being pumped up, but Minny has 4 losses and did not really beat anyone aside from Nebraska.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Could the committee have dropped||
FSU for financial purposes? Not to get all conspiracy theory, but..
a Bama-FSU matchup would seem to be highly rated. And, since Bama would be the #1 seed, they would play at the closer playoff venue (Sugar Bowl this year?), which would allow FSU to also play close to home and bring a lot of fans (as opposed to having to go to the west coast).
|38 weeks 4 days ago||Oh...I just assumed it was bloggers...||
I would imagine the LSU board is blowing up right now as the latest thread is titled "Michigan Insiders claim Miles is a done deal."
|38 weeks 4 days ago||Who are the insiders||
|38 weeks 4 days ago||I don't think a team would trade for him||
if there weren't assurances he would stick around. I wonderif if it could be similar to an NBA sign-and-trade???
|38 weeks 4 days ago||There are so many variables...||
the school, the expectations, the roster, a schematic change, etc. I think you have to give a guy at least 4 years (not saying that because of Hoke, honestly). I think that gives you enough time to recruit, implement changes, set your "style," and show what you have as a coach.
Look at a guy like Jimbo Fisher for instance. Not sure what the board thinks of him, but he lost 8 games his 1st 2 years. He now has a NC and a 28 game winning streak, along with a team that continues to come up big in key moments, and a nice 4-0 bowl record.
