I always liked the idea that it was OJ's son who comitted the murders and OJ covered for him.

Dude had like 200 yards against us in the first half on 3 carries. The coach benched him. We made a bit of a comeback in the second half, they put him in for one play, 80 yard touchdown to put the game away.

I've taught in both systems.
If you don't care about college credits, and just want the best education for your daughter, IB all the way, and it's not even close.
The AP is a mishmash of tests, not an integrated curriculum.
I recommend your daughter do IB, then keep/create portfolios of work to submit to colleges in her application, often you can get credit that way. Also consider taking placement tests once admitted to the college, you can place out or get college credit that way, even if you don't take AP classes or tests.

The question is, will he follow in Bo's footsteps and become AD when he retires from coaching?

Still reporting that the Patriots are preparing to be without Brady for the first 4 games of the season and the Berman's ruling was just a ploy to get Brady to settle for 3 games and admission of guilt.

I had forgotten about that! I'm dying!
BTW, went to a talk by Minnesota's OC and they have an awesome system for teaching motion and formation that is simple. I wonder if Harbs uses something similar. It looks like it since he's able to call so many formations on one play.
The system designates starting position, motion, and final position, but it would be really easy to add a few "final" positions in the call.

Have you seen Stanford's home slate this year? It's just one good football game after another.
I figure I could get on TV especially during the Stanford Arizona game. It's great, tailgate and watch M games in the morning, catch a decent PAC10 game in the evening.

If only there were some other QB Harbaugh had coached that turned into an NFL star ... ... That would be fortunate. You know how like a horshoe brings good superstitious thing and drew upon good luck.

I might have done total about $50 to $100 tops. But if you get 100 guys with me, that might add up pretty quick.

When sticking to the rules taught a sense of trustworthyness and integrity.
I also disagree with your assessment that he's autobenching against or without reason. There may not be a reason that you or I can easily discern, but that doesn't mean there isn't a reason.
It's been my experience that doing what you say you're going to do is one of the few ways to get young men to respect you.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||I humbly disagree on the autobench||
When you're working with young men, sometimes you have to lose a few battles to win the war.
Last year I was teaching this Div1a kid who was just a complete waste of space in terms of work ethic and classroom performance. But our head BB coach was too much of a spineless snake to discipline him. And our dean of students was also a pushover for the athletes. I can just imagine that even at a school like Michigan there are BB players with similar character defects, if not the whole suite combined in one ass-wipe. Luckily for that guy, he's over 7ft, so he was able to find a college coach that would also let him slide.
If Belien has certain rules and he sticks to them even in the face of short term games, bully for him. It helps to set expectations for the kids so that you don't have arguments or flareups down the line.
I'mma let the man with the awesome resume' do his thing without grumbling, even if I don't fully understand him. And besides, autobenching is what Norman Dale would do.

Wasn't the original number like 100k? Which itself was probably inflated.
I mean if we're going to add "Damage to Brand" how about adding "Free publicity"?
Personally, I'd never heard of the resort until this story.

|1 year 26 weeks ago||The difference||
is that Hoke's failings are only twofold.
1. He was just an above average MAC coach instead of a Bo, Lloyd, or Harbaugh.
2. The Morris incident, which probably arose from detachment and incompetence rather than malice or a true disregard for player safety. And that was a pretty terrible incident that he has been and will be raked over the coals for.
But under a different AD, If those were his only sins he would have been fired in due course in the usual way coaches are for not winning enough, and not much would have been said. It was Brandon's lies and general ass-hattery that exasberated the issue.
Furthermore, Hoke is generally well liked by nearly everyone so long as they don't consider his winning percentage, and every player will testify that he does care about them as people and their health and safety.
Hoke was charged with overseeing the football players. His damage was limited to the field. Brandon's interactions with the fans and all his money grubbing decisions were much more damaging with far reaching consequences.
Also, Brian said that Hoke will get a separate obit.

They should just institute a 50 point mercy rule or something like the way HS baseball does.
