..it was the House Hunters episode last night. They pick the second house with a guest house for rental income to supplement the mortgage.

.. I wonder if this might cause Patterson to be more open to big-name suitors, such as 'Us Truly'? He is my wish-on-a-star choice after Harbaugh.
|1 week 6 days ago||Hackett will not...||
..hire an unpopular choice. Other than Harbaugh, there is no universal agreement but he is not going to further fracture the fan base.
He will find a skilled and more popular coach should Harbaugh not come...Miles, Whittingham, Mullen, who knows, but not Schiano or Addazio..

..a guy who was suspended for trying to cover up that his team had bounties on opposing players will not be in one of Hackett's Swim Lanes...
|2 weeks 1 day ago||He was suspended from the NFL..||
..for covering up/putting bounties on opposing players. I can't see Hackett liking that on a resume.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||He is 62 years old...||
..which is a frequent point of concern with Miles. He has had success but it would seem anticlimactic.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I doubt Schiano has a Swim Lane..||
..and if he does, it's the one with a 'Baby Ruth' floating around and yellow water.

.., uses the triple-option for the sake of continuity from Fisher DeBerry days. From what I understand/guess, he prefers a pro-style attack. I do not want the triple-option here either.

..we don't have to worry about Greg Schiano coming here.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||David Shaw and Troy Calhoun..||
seem to match much of the academics/values qualities that Hackett talked about. May not be big-splash hires but good choices IMO if 'Les Harbaugh' doesn't pan out. I could envision Carr-like win totals and being competetive against OSU and MSU, perhaps not national title status though.
I see Shaw went to high school in Rochester Hills so the state isn't totally foreign to him.

the Broyles Award (top assistant) with a first year starting QB. Captain Hindsight says 'stealing Nuss' was a misnomer.

..to answer this but my definition is a terrible football team that beat Michigan this year.

..and get booed. I'm sure Hoke is liked but the kids gotta be excited at the chance to start winning again.

Perhaps in my 'Unicorns Exist' , 'Whole Foods is Worth It' and 'Peguins can Fly World' he would be open to the prospect of not facing Murderer's Row every year?
Mutual disinterest I'm sure but I left the caps off my magic markers..
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hoke vs. Schiano would be more interesting...||
..with either being cause for 'AD Revolt Part Deux'...
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I'm confident Hoke is gone, but...||
...my concern is a ‘Harbaugh or Miles or bust’ approach that retains Hoke if those two guys decline. (I’m assuming they will each be pursued). Mullen or Patterson have comfy gigs they built from scratch, which makes them long-shots even if Hackett approaches them. I’ll happily default to coordinators such as Herman or Narduzzi in this case.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I agree...||
Miles is unconventional and the lack of QB development is unsettling but he wins. Yeah, he's 61, but a 5 to 7 year run of a .500 winning pct. against OSU and MSU, while beating 'the teams we're supposed to beat' is part of my tempered expectations.
1) Harbaugh 2) Miles 3)Mullen
Schlissel and Hackett can perhaps reign him in a bit but let him be his quirky self.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||...yet even he beat Michigan(with Carr no less)||
and Pelini was 2-1 against Michigan. Their fired coaches still trump us.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||There is no App St or Not That Miami...||
or Akron or Air Force on the schedule next year so his numbers will drop, He shoud go and try to light up the combine. (I don't think his 40 time will be top-shelf, who knows about the other drills).
The Mike Williams comparisons have been mentioned by a few on here, although Williams was actually a dominant college WR against prime opponents. I don't believe we will be much worse or better with DF back.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Leroy Hoard and Jon Vaughn....||
..were a great Thunder and Ligtning duo from the early 90's...perhaps 'The Drake' and Ty Isaac can be similar to this next year.
I remember Touchdown Timmy's big game like it was yesterday.
