|5 weeks 5 hours ago||Nope||
According to Forbes, the Lions are the only NFL team to lose money last year, and have done so for 4 straight years.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Filpulla would be 5th in points on the wings||
And they could easily fit him in if they weren't paying the corpses of Franzen and Weiss to not play hockey the last 2 years. They signed Weiss to literally the same contract as Filpulla and got zero out of him. That's a giant fuck up
|10 weeks 2 days ago||They gave up a top 50 prospect||
but if you are OK with just throwing those guys away for literally nothing, then it's a fine deal
|10 weeks 3 days ago||That's being a bit generous||
either that or you've forgotten about signing Weiss, or trading for Legwand, or lettting Filpulla go, or going half a decade needing to add defense and somehow not managing to do it once. He's drafted well and managed to not make any super nova fuck ups with a core of established players but it's a stretch to say he's done a particularly good job lately, especially considering his great drafting is due in large part to Andersson's excellent scouting.
It's probably time for him to move on to greener pastures and let someone who can actually go out and get some free agent or trade help take over. He's set them up nicely for the future, but the team is going to need a change of leadership from the top down if it wants to bring this young group of players to cup contention.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||It's Grey||
Which seems a little dumb to me. Schools with a lot of green probably should avoid this.
|16 weeks 2 days ago||Steiber is a beast||
Like, historic beast. He's a 3 time champ already, going for 4 this year, and he would only be the fourth wrestler in history to win 4 NCAA titles. I'm not sure on an exact count but I'm pretty sure he's lost less than 10 matches since starting high school, and most of them were close matches to older, multi-championship winning wrestlers like David Taylor.
|17 weeks 2 days 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.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||They've won a single playoff game in 57 years||
It would, in fact, be surprising if the Lions made the super bowl.
|24 weeks 2 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
|24 weeks 2 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.
|27 weeks 2 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.
|27 weeks 4 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
|27 weeks 5 days 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
|27 weeks 6 days 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?
|27 weeks 6 days 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.
|27 weeks 6 days 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
|28 weeks 1 day ago||P.J. Fleck is the name you were looking for||
Row the dang boat
|28 weeks 2 days ago||How much does he put into the dolphins?||
It's not like owning an NFL team is cheap
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Too smart for his own good?||
Christ you sound like Skip Bayless with that
|28 weeks 5 days ago||Don't diss Wet Herrera||
The greatest coach in the history of organized sports
|28 weeks 5 days 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
|28 weeks 5 days 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"
|28 weeks 5 days 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
|28 weeks 5 days 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
|28 weeks 5 days 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.
|28 weeks 5 days 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.
|28 weeks 5 days ago||Was Harbaugh at Stanford for 11 years?||
Or are you just gonna ignore that part of it?
|29 weeks 19 hours 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
|29 weeks 1 day ago||Much like the 49'ers O-line||
I failed to properly execute, and have double posted.
|29 weeks 1 day 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.
