Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

Let me know i would be happy to help you with a fundraiser down here.
|32 weeks 2 days ago||Where is Ed Orgeron in this||
Dude can recruit like no other, and showed that he can motivate and develop talent at SC. Yes his first HC job was a failure but i would at least bring him in and talk to him. Seems like he learned alot in the years since Ole Miss.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||Orgeron||
Dude can recruit all over the country, big time leader and motivator, should be coaching SC this year.

be a great option for da footbaw team. Srsly.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Petros is the man||
And a rare sports talk guy who is knowledgeable about college football. He is a little shot out of a cannon but their show is really entertaining. And, this was a "bold prediction" for 2012.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||FWIW, Petros made a bold||
FWIW, Petros made a bold prediction for 2012 last night when he said that Michigan and USC would meet in the Orange Bowl next year for the National Championship. Cue the heads exploding in the SEC, he took a call from a guy in MS of course who sounded like a reject from Finebaum.
And I couldn't agree more about Bill King, he is extremely knowledgeable, fair and spares no sacred cows.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Bill King and Chris Childers||
Bill King and Chris Childers are the only reasons to listen to that channel, unless you are a 'Bama fan. Bill got moved to 6-9 AM and Childers is now on at night. They are both head and shoulders above any other goofs on that channel.
Eddie George and Mark Packer are your typical conventional wisdom spewers, filling hour and hours with their arrogance, ignorance and stupidity.
Listen to Petros and Money on Fox Sports, Petros is really knowledgeable about college football and brings a nice west coast flavor to it. And they are funny as hell.

If Urb put a couple of hats on a table and picked up the one that he was going to coach?

ALL IS WELL!!!!!!

Well played as usual.

|3 years 50 weeks ago||The NCAA is just another broken institution||
Way too many people profit from the current system to want to change it. I agree 100% with Whitlock, but that doesn't excuse what Tressel did. You can either work to change the system (he didn't) or play by the rules (he also didn't). If you get caught you will and should suffer the consequences. And positioning yourself as a paragon of virtue and integrity while lying to cover up your rule breaking makes it worse.

I saw the same kind of blind loyalty from IU hoops fans after Bobby Knight choked out Neil Reed, threw a flower pot at a 70 year old secretary, and screamed at some freshman who said "What's up Knight?" The excuses that Knight was "repositioning" Reed on the floor with his hand around Reed's neck sound awfully close to "really officer, I was just helping that sheep over the fence."
|4 years 7 weeks ago||I remember in 1989||
A weird confluence of events...A Dead show, Hash Bash, and Mich in the Final Four. I was actually working in CT at the time, had to take a semester off, and my pledge trainer was on the back page of the NY Post for being on top of the chinese restaurant on South U during the "celebration."
|4 years 7 weeks ago||No.||
If anybody deserved it recently, Alabama did and they didn't even get close to the Death Penalty. SMU's hubris (arrogance+ignorance+stupidity) was so over the line that the NCAA had no choice. SMU basically dared them to pull the trigger and they did.

I am hopeful, but also skeptical based on the last couple of years. I do have confidence in Mattison and think he will make big strides.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||My Jim Henson beats your Lou Henson||
Way to go Blue!
|4 years 10 weeks ago||I couldn't have put it||
I couldn't have put it better, I felt the same way that you did about the Gator Bowl.
|4 years 11 weeks ago||Pow!||
|4 years 12 weeks ago||BOOM Sorority'd!||
Haven't looked into rooms yet, but I always have good luck with Hotwire.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||Cuz Calvin McGee was a slim MFer||
Personally, Borges can look like Jabba the Hut and roll around the Big House on a throne carried by scout teamers if he can establish a decent run game and score some points, as far as I am concerned.
|4 years 13 weeks ago||I agree-a good leader know his blind spots||
And RichRod didn't see the D as a problem until it was too late. Mattison wouldn't have come for RichRod.

|4 years 17 weeks ago||Peter King was question Mattison in MMQB this morning||
I guess he was wondering why someone would want to leave his beloved NFL, but he thought it is weird that GM was looking to go back to the college game from a top 10 NFL defense. I don't care why he did it, I'm just glad he did.

Thanks man, now I have something to do when I'm not playing GT5 (or checking MGoBlog)
|4 years 17 weeks ago||Ed Reed, Terrell Suggs, Hloti Ngata approve this hire||
I remember being excited about Mattison the first go 'round, as he was one of the architects of the vaunted ATM "Wrecking Crew" defenses of the late 80s/early 90's. I think I read some where that one of the reasons he left is that he had issues with Llyoyd, anyone know about that? I think it is a great get for us-dude has a sweet pedigree at multiple stops including the Ravens. POW!
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Fontez looked pretty good compared to Millen||
Schwartz has them going in a good direction tho, le't hope that WC Ford doesn't fuck it up.
|4 years 19 weeks ago||Happy Jack is...happy||
Redundant. Thanks for sharing your exclusive insight into Rich Rod's coaching tenure.
