|6 weeks 6 days ago||Youtsey is a weird case||
He had a relatively dissapointing year this year, but he is a returning AA
|9 weeks 5 days ago||whatever you say||
Teams now score like 10 points a game less than they did back in the good old days of the 80's with all it's defense and grit.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Georgia doesn't produce a lot of wrestlers||
Most Big Ten level wrestlers are multiple title winners in wrestling states, like Ohio or Pennsylvania. A one time champ from down south would have difficulty even placing in Pennsylvania.

He has no idea how to hire coaches, but he has some value strictly as a talent evaluator. He built an incredibly dominant defense, one that could have made a serious playoff push if he hadn't hampered the offense with his coaching choice.
He hit well on the d-line in drafts, and that's what New York is going to focus on. He's not terrible in free agency, and as long as he has nothing to do with coaches it will be hard for him to fuck up that badly. He definitely deserves a job in the league, just not running the Lions. The bozo he left behind coaching the team is a different story, but he'll get his soon

I can tell you that is pretty common
|17 weeks 3 days ago||Broke the mold?||
She did exactly what WCF did to Millen, right down to the half ass statement that the team is dedicated to performing better
As long as she can keep hiring her kids friends, that is.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||100% Agree||
Him and McNeil are roughly the same to me. Both lost a ton of talent at schools that can't stockpile the depth that top tier programs can. Mullen managed to have a decent year anyway, McNeil lost a Qb to injury, IIRC, and struggled just enough for an athletic director to make a regrettable decision.
Though it we had hired either, right now we would be kicking ourselves for not getting Herman.

You better damn well find some good people when you don't
|24 weeks 5 days ago||Babers isn't going to Maryland||
With the amount of jobs open this year, guys like Babers, Herman, and Holiday are gonna get snatched up by much better teams than Maryland.
|40 weeks 1 day ago||Oddsides Ale's||
It's in Grand Haven, so it's close, and everything i've ever tried from them has been excellent. When you're there, you have to try Bean Flicker, which is a coffee flavored blonde, and the Black Citra IPA if they have it on tap.
|49 weeks 2 days 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.
|1 year 2 weeks 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
|1 year 2 weeks 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
|1 year 2 weeks 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.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||It's Grey||
Which seems a little dumb to me. Schools with a lot of green probably should avoid this.
|1 year 8 weeks 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.
|1 year 9 weeks 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.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||They've won a single playoff game in 57 years||
It would, in fact, be surprising if the Lions made the super bowl.
|1 year 16 weeks 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
|1 year 16 weeks 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.
|1 year 19 weeks 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.
|1 year 19 weeks 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
|1 year 19 weeks 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
|1 year 20 weeks 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?
|1 year 20 weeks 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.
|1 year 20 weeks 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

Row the dang boat

It's not like owning an NFL team is cheap

Christ you sound like Skip Bayless with that
