|4 days 8 hours ago||Finally, I contribute something of value||
I'm pretty sure that is a scene from the movie Dogma, and time is frozen around the main characters whilst some dilemna or plot point is laid out.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||They've won a single playoff game in 57 years||
It would, in fact, be surprising if the Lions made the super bowl.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Yes||
Dom lost to the youngest Rizgallah, 4-3.
I hope Coon makes the Olympics, almost entirely because that means we would get to enjoy post olympic redshirt year wrestling, which is always awesome. That's how you end up with guys like Jake Herbert teching the #2 kid in the country
|7 weeks 4 days ago||All you need to know about MSU wrestling||
Is that you could damn near walk from campus to St. Johns, and yet every single wrestler from there goes to Michigan.
They were OK as a team when they had the Simmons and I think Boudro, they've had a few scattered AA and a champ since then, but that's almost entirely a result of being in a wrestling rich area.
I would like to say that a big part of why that gap is starting to grow is Michigan's willingness to spend. McFarland was able to hire 2 huge name assistant coaches a few years ago from the olympic program, and Michigan has probably the nicest wrestling practice facility in college.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Fun fact||
My phone is trolling me with that feature, as I will now demonstrate by typing a name.
Brady Hoke is a very innovative and visionary offensive mind.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||I was terrified this was Coach Schiano||
Sorry man, if you end up here, but the thought of Greg Schiano in a Michigan polo makes my skin crawl, and I puke a little in my mouth
|11 weeks 19 hours ago||I thought Saban and Les were already making more||
At least IIRC there were a few guys in the 6 million a year range at that time
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Did you know||
That if you twist one of your e's into a u, and the other into an h, your name is an anagram of Harbaugh?
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Nah||
Still more work in college. Acquiring players is just a much more time consuming task in CFB than it is in the NFL.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Sorry if this is out of line, but here's some wild ass speculati||
This feels like the kind of article that gets written when some big wig see's the "48 Million Dollar" report on TV and calls the office saying "I just saw an obscenely large number next to a dollar sign on Sportscenter, get the sports econ dude on this!" which then causes him to get on real quick and stretch 2 regurgitated talking points into an article because there isn't any real sports econ story here.
Not that he's necessarily wrong, Harbaugh might stay in the NFL for those reasons, it just seems lazily written and out of this guys wheelhouse
|11 weeks 3 days ago||P.J. Fleck is the name you were looking for||
Row the dang boat
|11 weeks 4 days ago||How much does he put into the dolphins?||
It's not like owning an NFL team is cheap
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Too smart for his own good?||
Christ you sound like Skip Bayless with that
|12 weeks 3 hours ago||Don't diss Wet Herrera||
The greatest coach in the history of organized sports
|12 weeks 3 hours ago||They are 20 million over the cap next year||
So they take this team, which is already relatively old and not that good, and dump 20 million in salary, plus either the money to pay their picks or the picks themselves in the draft.
They are going to win maybe 7 games then have to flat out cut starters this off season. They are a tire fire
|12 weeks 9 hours ago||I can see it now||
"Jim, before I take this job, there's one thing I absolutely have to do. I'm gonna need your plane, I'm going to need the entirety of my contract, in full, in non sequential peso's, 20 pounds of rotel and velveeta, and one of those bomb suits. Yeah, like from the hurt locker"
|12 weeks 9 hours ago||He's a GIANT improvement defensively||
going from the worst OF in the game to Cespedes is a huge upgrade, and he's at least as good offensively as Hunter
|12 weeks 9 hours ago||That might be bullshit||
He's not coming to Michigan, but New Orleans is going to be a trainwreck next year, and he's just watching it slowly crash. It wouldn't absolutely shock me if he took another NFL job because he doesnt' want to be stuck in rebuild mode
|12 weeks 9 hours ago||Yes||
It was 3. You can get Simon's production off the damn scrap heap, you don't need to be trading players for it.
|12 weeks 9 hours ago||He's hot ass garbage||
He was incredibly lucky over the first half of last year, he's much more the guy who had a 4.5 era in the second half of the year. That is hot ass garbage in the NL.
|12 weeks 20 hours ago||Was Harbaugh at Stanford for 11 years?||
Or are you just gonna ignore that part of it?
|12 weeks 2 days ago||You could make it about the product too||
They have been extra terrible lately. The fact that they even published the Dr. Football bullshit shows where they are
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Much like the 49'ers O-line||
I failed to properly execute, and have double posted.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||O-line regression is probably the biggest culprit||
They went from being probably the best unit in football to not very good at all in a year. Without that killer run game defenses have been able to key in on Kaepernick, and though he's a very good QB, he's not in the class of guys who can beat you even if you gameplan entirely around stopping them.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||To steal a line from PFT_Commenter||
this is about teling not speling smh
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Sorry||
But local papers aren't going to stop covering a coaching search at a Michigan out of common courtesy.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||I follow him on Twitter||
It's absolutely fascinating. He's not dumb, he's fairly well versed in like, the space program, he's relatively religious, he has a warped up in depth knowledge of history.
Like, one second he's saying how ridiculous it is that someone thinks we faked the moon landing, and his next tweet is about how aliens built the pyramids.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Stephen Ross doesn't either||
I'll be he's got some say though. Just because you don't have a job title doesn't mean you have zero influence on the decisions made by the university, and there are ways to buy that influence other than cash.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||I was at the Oregon game||
It wasn't all sunshine and fucking rainbows
|13 weeks 2 days ago||He's not Hoke||
He's Ferentz. If you gave Ferentz what Harbaugh left Shaw, I'm convinced the exact same thing would have happened. Terrible game manager, archaic offense. It works if you can absolutely destroy up front, which Ferentz has been able to do every 3 or 4 years when he develops a full O-line together, and Shaw had when he was left with what remained of the Harbaugh O-lineman, but it's not a great strategy.
Shaw isn't a bad coach, and he could probably get Michigan to be what Nebraska was under Pelini due to the slight recruiting advantage he would have over Ferentz, but I'm not thrilled about hiring a guy who probably has a ceiling of what just got Nebraska's coach fired.
