Well, didnt the OP just say this was in response to a tweet from Brian? Who by the way, posted it at 12:09AM:
"Hoke era basically "army of PCP-crazed dingoes trying to fuck a space wallaby" y/n
Which, I have no idea what any of that means but it sounds provocative to me. I guess he's taking a re-take on his DB Obit.. but if you're going to judge this guy for his tweet, at least paint the full picture. Twitter is hard enough to follow (when there's back and forth convo).
Don't just give half the information.

I'm sorry if this is unpopular but...what's the big deal with his tweet? I mean I guess he didn't need to make it personal at the end, but he stated an opinion... in the country I live in, I'd like to think that's okay. Brian is a big boy, I think he can handle it...no?

I mean, with new coaches (a few of whom are NFL caliber), if I were Gardner, in prep for any future workouts, i'd be working with them to enhance my craft (as a WR.)
A few coaches put in some good words, and if not drafted, then at least he'd get a serious look and opportunity.
I'd also be curious to learn as much as possible from harbaugh and staff... who knows what connections they have (in football and in life.)

Amen, spread the word. I did my best to spread the word to those applying. Full disclosure i am puerto rican, but you don't have to be a minority! I asked that question specifically to the Consortium folks.

You actually don't have to be a minority to earn a fellowship via the consortium. You just need to demonstrate commitment to diversity. The race thing is often misunderstood, so I figured i'd correct that. So if you were a TFA teacher or a "big brother" you can make a great case.
Also a note: the disadvantage of applying this way is that you have to reveal a ranking of the consortium schools you're aplying to. I put Ross first over Tuck/Darden which certainly helped with Ross, but didn't help with Tuck/Darden.
|23 weeks 1 day ago||1. What was your||
1. What was your admissions process/experience like at Ross or other MBA programs?
2. What were some other schools you considered, or think I might want to look at?
I applied to 7 schools: Columbia, Kellogg, Tuck, Darden, Cornell, Ross, Emory (Goizueta). Got into all but Kellogg.
You may want to also consider: Texas McCombs, Goizueta (Emory), Notre Dame Mendoza (network is quite strong) and Kelley (Indiana) if you're into B1G schools.
3. What's some advice you have in choosing programs, getting admitted, making the most out of B-school, etc. Take the trips with classmates... the MBA is at least 75% about the network (IMO). Join crazy/unrelated groups... I play rugby (for the first time) with my school- love it!
I'm in class (whoops) so I can elaborate more if you have more Q's.

Gerald Ford and the GaTech game.
Not that this merits a full 30/30 but a few years ago I watched a YouTube clip of post Ohio state... John Navarre leads us to a rose bowl. he was asked on camera about how sweet it must be to silence the critics. He downplayed it but got pretty emotional. Sobering moment for me as a fan.

I like the idea in a broad sense, but I mean, at the end of the day, let him make his decision. If he chose to not come back to Michigan, it would suck for me as a fan, but it's his life. If he has ambitions and goals that don't include Michigan, then I respect his decision. We took a shot, now it's on him to decide. Michigan clearly will make accommodations to any outstanding unmet requests. Anything else to me will be more negative (public perception of desperation) than positive (would it really be the edge needed to get him to come?) I hope the video isn't the deciding factor.

Fair point... I'm just saying how bad is it compared to other universities? I don't know what Michigan's schedule looks like. One would think you would have a prof give a guest lecture or mock class to the group of visitors. What could possible be covered in 15 minutes? Can't even cover the different schools within the university in 15 minutes.

Well, i don't know enough to know whether or not this is industry norm. I do find it funny though that they spend 15 minutes on that, and 30 minutes on Strength & Conditioning. Oh, and the 4 hour break between 2 and 6pm. That's got to be a joke.

SEARCHBITS XII: GIL THORP IS A NUTTER
who are you going to believe, a black and white 1950s comic strip or common sense?
YOU HAVE BEEN OFFERED THE JOB. Michigan is talking to people now. One of those people was David Cutcliffe or his agent, which led wildly inaccurate NFL.com insider Gil "Thorp" Brandt to assert that he had been offered the job and turned it down. What actually happened: Michigan gauged his interest and he said no thanks*. Or nothing at all, but taking public statements from the people involved at face value is never advisable in a coaching search.
|33 weeks 2 days ago||Read Brian's latest post..||
Read Brian's latest post.. that's reassuring. Sounds like Plan B is a normal search (which is being exercised) while we wait on JH.
I'm happy with all this Playoff controversy because it takes a little of the heat off of Michigan (at least media attention-wise.)

Man hunt - Basically tag in NYC streets, climbing scaffolds, jumping roof to roof, running in the middle of the street. In retrospect, not sure how i didn't die, but i did have to get stitches on my head once...explains a lot.

Out of curiosity... what exactly do you mean by getting expensive? Is Clash of Clans free to play, but freemium model? (e.g. Free to join, but you pay for in-game features?) I know in League of Legends, not dropping a dollar has no impact on in-game performance, is that true for Clash of Clans?
(Note: I just recently presented on League of Legends for a strategic capabilities course, was astonished by the volume of players and also the revenue generated from in-game purchases.)

Oh, totally agree. This one is Wisconsin's to lose. I really just meant that if this were week 1, that 3rd stringer would have likely led Ohio State to the same record (maybe, just maybe one loss vs MSU.)

Does anyone know how does the search work exactly? Like is it industry standard/expectation for an AD reach out directly to the coach/coach's agent, or does a coach's agent ever reach out to AD?
|34 weeks 2 days ago||Unfortunately, you might be||
Unfortunately, you might be right. I mean they replaced their heisman candidate QB (Braxton Miller) with a heisman candidate QB. Urban Meyer runs a system, Ohio State recruits in such a fashion, and their schedule typically affords them the opportunity to break in new QBs. That said, I don't think the playoffs is a "break a QB in situation" but the point still stands.
Also, the Urban Meyer hype machine will be in full force if they win the B1G title game. We all know how good he is at that.

|39 weeks 2 days ago||I really appreciate what||
I really appreciate what you're trying to do here, but ultimately the only comparison I can see is that we both have moderately solid defenses with anemic offenses. Oh, and both teams lost to Utah.
QB situations were somewhat different. DG has stayed throughout all this nonsense. Mallett left.
You mention Year 1 vs Year 4... but think about it- we were in the process of overhauling the offense. By now, this offense should have had an identity but instead, we've been inconsistent on offense for 4 years now. I don't see how the position coaches.
This team is better than the 2008 team, but we shouldn't have to be comparing them.

You're out of your element... i never talk smack about students, but the fact is he's never thrown a TD pass in his career. DG has way more tools in his toolkit than Morris has,.. could be an experience thing, but Morris isn't ready yet.

I've seen you make this case a couple of times. While I don't necessarily disagree, I'd like to inject one potential question: Do you not think that JH is so polarizing of an individual that he could eventually piss off former players and other folks and then add to this weird tension within the Michigan community?

Call me nuts, but I think the 2007 team would beat the sugar bowl winning 2011 team 7 out of ten times. (I know i know... struggle against mobile QBs).
Actually, the more I think about it, those would be fun games to watch. In many ways I feel that 2011 season was a gift from the football gods to say sorry for those rose bowl matchups against Texas, and USC.
If we'd only blocked that FG at the end!

Not necessarily, he has to alter his running stride to avoid the trip up, which, impedes/obstructs his ability to run as he otherwise would have been able to. In theory, here he would have to high knee or leap over the fielder.

I really don't think this call is controversial at all. It's only controversial for Red Sox fans. By any objective measure, the call was spot on.

Absolutely seemed to be the case. After Desmond Morgan had that game saving interception (IMO), i started a chant "Des-Mond Mor-Gan..." No one bit. I kept doing it for at least a minute. That to me, was the most frustrating of all. One guy did bring a cowbell, but i only heard him use it a handful of times. (Maybe 2-3 times.)
It was surreal that our Michigan Wolverines were playing on the east coast... I can't wait for Rutgers next year. My friend's dad (donor @ Rutgers) is saying they're talking about moving the game to Giants Stadium- which I think would be smart.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||For those who watched on TV-||
For those who watched on TV- can someone explain what the atmosphere looked like, what our O-Line looked like? From my seats it was hard to tell why we struggled to run the ball.
I posted in another thread but it was at least 50/50 michigan, but we as a fanbase did not bring it- we needed the band there.
My Cool Starry Bra story: I saw buses being escorted to the stadium... and then a regular car following them (By regular i mean white infiniti).... the driver was none other than Dave Brandon.. or someone who looked exactly like him.
|1 year 44 weeks ago||Don't be fooled, It was at||
Don't be fooled, It was at least 50-50 michigan, but these Michigan fans were like the odd cousins you have that you rarely see. For example, I was working hard to get chants going, but no one was biting... it's as if they didn't know them. I told fans next to me to start wearing Maize in the future- it stands out on TV, and it's easier to band together etc.
We really needed the Michigan band there to bring the noise and some cohesion among our fans. The Cheerleaders were decent, but we really struggled until the fourth quarter (as a fan base.)
Their fans kind of suck to be completely honest. Not violent or anything but not hospitable- you get that cold northeast stereotype thing going.
tl;dr: Our fanbase/alumni showed up in person, but left a lot to be desired in terms of making noise. UConn surprised me with how engaged they were, but their fans are meh.

You have no idea. I mean I KNEW I dropped the ball. I have been to every ND game since 2007. I got the maize shirt in '09 in Ann arbor and the rest is history. I'm about to run home now and make sure it's in my drawer now. Ahhh.

I'm gonna wear the same long sleeve Michigan basketball maize shirt that brought us wins in 2009, 2010, 2011 against ND. I went to the game last year in south bend, but left my shirt. Never again.

My buddy is a teacher and a HS coach... it's actually a K-12 school, and the tuition is 38k a year. Many parents pay this starting from Kindergarten.....!!!!!!!
EDIT: This is an nyc HS i'm talking about. I went to a jesuit HS in the city and tuition is now over 14k a year. Yikes. My girlfriend went to Georgia Tech and spent less a year for a top college!

Honestly, he looks pretty good to me, but i'm no guru. Looks to have a strong arm...maybe some throws take a while to get to the receiver, but I can't tell if that's deliberate (touch.)

I don't know why but i'm on edge for the entirety of The Game. I develop Turrets, and find myself saying "I Fucking hate ohio state" every 10 secs.... anyone else?
|1 year 49 weeks ago||I like your thought process.||
I like your thought process. I'd say to add, he might actually be more effective running the ball when plays break down. Michigan needs defenses to respect the pass, that will open up the run for DG, not the other way around (as with Denard.)

I'm sorry but if the Woody Hayes story is true... that's DEFINITELY #1... Maybe because I didn't follow Michigan/MSU rivalry at the time, but John L Smith just goes nuts during a press conference... there have been worse freakouts. Also, Woody Hayes hitting a clemson player that would ultimately cost him his job and his reputation to some extent also should be on this list, shouldn't it?
Overall, very interesting read, i like your creativity!

Out of Control... but very smart move by the Athletic Department. I just missed the good ol' days when i could score two "piggy back" seats for face value ($75 or so at the time?). I basically backpacked one ticket, then kept refreshing trying to buy another ticket that was the same section, same seat, but one row above/below. I did this for the 2009 ND vs Michigan game. My girlfriend sat behind me.

Well, then to this point- the majority of this depends on eye witness testimony. If an overwhelming majority state that this woman was acting belligerent, then he's probably in decent shape. If folks are saying he's just as guilty in the confrontation, then they're both in trouble but he's got a lot more to lose.
Seriously, it all depends on the police report and eye witness testimony.
Not sure if your comments are justly aimed at me, but that's my $0.02 on the legality of it.

Legal or not, Urban has to make the call (if he actually slapped her) on whether or not he should represent the buckeyes. Just bc he's not found guilty of a crime would you want someone like that on your team? How can you look your wife/daughter in the eye? Is football that important?

You're absolutely spot on, thanks for posting this. Honestly, hating on the clowney hit makes us look ridiculous and makes the whole situation worse (when talking to opposing fans). Just let it be. Great hit, move on. It pisses me off more that we lost both the OSU and South Carolina game. Those teams were very beatable... but par for the season, the ball didn't bounce Michigan's way.

Having coached Little league, the biggest issue i have is for the losing coach's pitch count. These days pitch counts are enforced and i imagine he must have had to throw everyone... which puts him at a disadvantage for future games if they fall within a few days.
