Any word on if his parents are selling their house and have contacted a real estate agent in Ann Arbor?

No. Graham doesn't work in my wonderfully witty adaptation of It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" post before yours.
Wait, this is the "only my opinion matters" thread isn't it???

It depends. In Google parlance:
Retargeting is when you accessed a site and then you get ads from that source because you accessed the site.
Companion is because you are doing searches and you get adds based on the key words/terms. (i.e. you didn't have to actually visit the site).
Either one could have caused the MSU ads to show up on MGoBlog.

I thought THE KNOWLEDGE would have forseen all those typos. Unless spelling has changed in the future.

Why so focused on the 3-9 season in RR's first year? I'm more pissed off about a coach that goes 5-7 in his fourth year than a guy who goes 3-9 in his first.

I heard a story about Belichick providing consulting to a local D3 school. So there is that.

If Michigan does land Harbaugh and his pressers are always like that, Brian Cook will have a striking resemblance to Brian Kelly after each one.
|3 weeks 3 hours ago||Supposedly, the playoff||
Supposedly, the playoff committee will pick the four teams they think are most deserving. If that is the case, I think TCU will be the selection. If there is a strong effort to continue to emphasize the importance of conference championships, then Baylor has to be the selection. Assuming the top teams win out, I think the only garaunteed teams in would be Oregon, FSU, and Alabama. That makes a really interesting fight between Baylor, TCU, and OSU for only one spot. You would have to think OSU would have a leg up if they beat Wisconsin with their third string QB.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Of the seven teams in the SEC||
Of the seven teams in the SEC West, they have played four teams from Power Five conferences in their OOC schedules. Those teams: West Virginia, Kansas St, Wisconsin, and Texas Tech. When you look at the other 24 games, they were against teams like Presbyterian, UAB, Nicholls St., Florida Atlantic, Western Carolina, ect. That is poor.

If Hoke gets to coach a bowl game. with the bowl Michigan will get to play in, Hackett will only have to wait a couple more weeks to let Hoke go once the OSU game is over.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||There is plenty of time. Hoke||
There is plenty of time. Hoke could be let go at any point in Dec. The new AD could come on board soon afterwards. A new coach could be in place by the first or second week of January. This would give them a few weeks to solidify what ever recruits may be left. As has been previously mentioned, this is a very small recuriting class this year. If this one is ruined, it will not have significant long term impact.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Regarding your point one,||
Regarding your point one, there's actually a lot of merit to an Interim AD letting go of a coach. To explain, I'll use the transition policy for the Presbyterian Church (no religion/politics). When a pastor moves on or retires, the church, by law, is supposed to bring in an interim pastor for 12-18 months. This gives the church the time needed to get the right replacement pastor. More importantly, part of the interim pastors responsibility is to implement change that would have been difficult for the old pastor or next pastor to make. Churches have equal if not more cultural issues than college athletics. Change does not come easy. An interim pastor can make changes easier because they have no history and no long term relational concerns. Then the new pastor comes in, changes in cultures have already been made, and everyone gets to start fresh.

It may have simply been his choice of words, but when I hear a manager say someone has integrity and they are not performing to standard, that basically says, please send in your resignation so I don't have to fire you.

Marcus Ray agrees with you regarding your final point. After the MSU game, his podcast on The Wolverine.com was very interesting.
In brief summary: During his playing days, the scout team got to do whatever they wanted during practice of MSU week. Goudge, pinch, bite, bend, whatever. The starters did not like it, but it got them ready for the game. He also said that the team currently does not do this.
Whether you agree that is a good practice or not, it certainly speaks to a different mindset.

I'll avoid the snarky response, and simply recommend that you rethink what you are really trying to accomplish with the title of your thread and that nature of your claim.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||The core of Schlissel's||
The core of Schlissel's message is very clear: Athletics will not be a stand alone entity seperate from the life of the college. This does not mean that sports will be de-emphasized. This does not mean drakonian oversight is ocming. It simply means, athletics are part of the University and needs to operate that way.
There have been countless posts about the decline of student attendance at sporting events. I personally believe the root of this decline is due to the seperation of student athletes from the common student body. In the past 20 -30 years (which coincides with the giant influx of money into college sports) there have been signifcant campus developments including seperate: dorms, dinning halls, workout facilities, etc for student athletes. At the same time fewer and fewer athletes (in the big sports) are taking part in common classes. Instead, they are being funneled into a handfull of majors where they most likely will be in class with other athletes.
Having an athletic department which is fully integrated into the university could very well address the biggest issue facing college sports today: the dwindling fan bases at the student level. If you don't make fans out of the current student body, you will not have a strong base to pull donations from in the future.

For a conference so hung up on tradition, they sure make shit up at the drop of a hat. Shouldn't you actually want to get back that which is held dear in the rivalry? The little brown jug, paul bunyans axe, those are awesome! Most of the new fabricated junk sculptures, not so much.

Great post Seth, thank you for doing the ground work. In an excercise like this, you look for general trends instead of nitpicking the "data". Your chart comparing the Power 5 hires over the past 15 years sums it all up.
- The SEC, by far, puts it's money where it's mouth is.
- The PAC12 has a few schools that have histroically worked that way and now the remaning schools are starting to follow suit.
- Even with fewer teams, the Big 12 has had much lower turn over and let the big schools get the big names while everyone else tries to get by
- The ACC is average
- Dear God Big Ten, what the hell is wrong with you!!!
