Spent the holiday with my children, including Sparty daughter. She's always been cool about it though. The only UM/MSU points we even discussed, and that very briefly were Narduzzi to Pitt and the possibility of Harbaugh to Michigan. She has bought me M gear before (not this year, though), and attended the Sugar Bowl with me and even cheered for Michigan's win over VT.

The point about how many young players Michigan has, does make it unusual and we can only hope between that and Beilein's coaching, this Michigan team can buck the odds and improve drastically as the season progresses.

I appreciate this thread and find it more pertinent than a majority of the CC threads that have been posted.
|1 week 1 day ago||The NFL reporters have been||
The NFL reporters have been saying about Harbaugh taking the Michigan job: "As I told you, it would be absolutely, totally, and in all other ways inconceivable. No one in Guilder knows what we've done, and no one in Florin could have gotten here so fast. Out of curiosity, why do you ask? "
Now that Michigan has beaten their Giant and bested their Spaniard, they have been backtracking but are still muttering "inconceivable" over and over. All that's left is for them to drink the poison when Harbaugh announces he's the next coach of the Michigan Wolverines.

The $48 million is accurate, it's just that Harbaugh has to pay for Ipads and a private jet out of that.

I before E except after B (and L).

I suspect he'll get a decent severance package though, and hey, he gets to spend the holidays with his family.
|1 week 4 days ago||Threads like this make me||
Threads like this make me embarrassed for this board. If this were Hackett or Harbaugh releasing information, I could tolerate it, but responding to some nobody's tweet like this?

Scotty, forget the hamsters; go with tribbles.

You kids stop jumping on the bed and go to sleep! Santa won't come if you don't go to sleep.

This reminds me of what a former girlfriend once told me. She said she wasn't going to wait around and be my backup plan if the girl I was chasing didn't work out.
|1 week 4 days ago||Gardner has the physical||
Gardner has the physical talent, and everybody knew he was raw coming out of HS, but three OC's and a position change later, and he never realized the potential most thought he had. Denard's problems are largely attributable to his injuries. The failure during Hoke's tenure, though, was never having or being able to develop any other QB.

Well, we did help Rutgers, Minnesota, and Maryland win more than they were expected. That's gotta count for something, doesn't it?
|1 week 5 days ago||If the players can each||
If the players can each figure out their roles (even the "veterans" on the team seem to be struggling with this) and develop and mature, this could be a decent team by year's end. I still don't think they will be good enough to challenge for the Big Ten title and might not even make the tournament, but they should be significantly better than they are now.

And he looks like he's wearing makeup, though it doesn't seem to be helping.

I suspect it only took 15 minutes because the empahsis was most likely on the incredible support staff of tutors and advisors to make sure the athletes stay eligible.
On one of the university tours I went on with my daughter, we were turned off by the spiel of one of the student tour guides that emphasized how much assistance was available to ensure everyone passed. To a marginal student, I guess that would be a great appeal.

Don't forget to read his body language for indications of where he wants to coach.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Isn't Incarnate Word one of||
Isn't Incarnate Word one of the schools Baylor played in football this year? And they wonder why they weren't deemed one of the top four football teams this year.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Hackett said the initial||
Hackett said the initial process would be broad, so I wouldn't be surprised if he was one of the 10 to 20 candidates who were approached to see if they're interested. I can also see where someone nearing retirement would rather stay in a weak conference and at a school where making it to any bowl game is celebrated as an accomplishment rather than going to a place with much greater demands and expectations would seem preferable.

Get them out of the basement; they will mildew. Also, you've already answered your question. It's not the framing of them, it's where and how they're displayed. Hang them in a den or some place similar.

I saw on a Nebraska board this tweet from SI's Thayer Evans:
Just spoke w/ Bo Pelini. Denied reports of being offered or accepting Youngstown State job. "It's all a complete fabrication of the truth."

Actually, I think that warm-up game helped EMU more than Michigan. In the post game interview the EMU coach talked about watching film of the Syracuse game to help prepare his team.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||True, but when you skip post||
True, but when you skip post season games that would likely be against the best opponents they would have faced, that skews the record a bit too.

There are some risks with Harbaugh as HC, the most prominent one being that he would likely be looking to get back to the NFL soon. I wouldn't have a problem with that if he stayed at least 3-4 years.

Speaking of OU, they also had a disaster in bringing in a "name" coach with Howard Schnellenberger.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||His conference record is||
His conference record is under .500 though, 58-63, including 2-7 this year, which is worse than Hoke's record this season. He seems like an underwhelming pick to me.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||In some ways, I think the||
In some ways, I think the committee just punted on the Big 12 teams, and said to the Big 12, if you can't make up your mind who to push for the playoff, we're not going to do it for you. Otoh, for those saying TCU unfairly dropped in the polls, another way of saying that is someone else rose in the polls. I'm not saying it's necessarily right in this case, but I'm glad teams aren't locked into some slot and can never pass another team if they both keep winning. If you want to blame anybody for OSU getting in the playoff over TCU, blame the Big 12 or Wisconsin for their performance. If they had shown a pulse, we might not be having this conversation.
