Swenson got his offer and acceptance from Hoke, not Harbaugh though. But was given the boot for not meeting Harbaugh terms, so I don't really how your analogy works.
This is more like getting in and the admissions officer telling you that you need a 3.7 or better senior year. You get a 3.8, but still get the boot because the new admission officer has decided they only take 3.9s or better now. After all Swenson did still end up a 4* composite with nother P5 offers, so it's not exactly like he slacked off to the tune of getting a 2.0.

You should focus more on positives like this and less on tweeting at State players after the game.

He committed the one year they had Fickell (as a freshman in high school), Meyer honored the commit up until the greyshirt request.

Bad strategic move by Brazil, keeps it in the news cycle. Just issue a statement saying "Well we looked into Ryan's complaint and the video evidence doesn't support his story because it shows them just moving from party to party at the Olympic village. At this time all we can confirm is Ryan's hair looks stupid. We need additional informatiom from Ryan to move forward." No way on earth Ryan goes back to Brazil, so in six months they can just toss the report as no additional action needed.
At this point if Ryan does recant, folks will just assume it was to spring his buddies from jail. Plus it makes Brazil look insecure as hell. Multiple coaches and athletes have reported crimes, Brazil's own police force was protesting about how unsafe it was at the airport, so even if you prove Ryan made it up or embellished it, it doesn't change the overall reality.

|41 weeks 2 days ago||So many more people than just||
So many more people than just these guys knew. When Sandusky retired he was 55 (purely for comparsion Harbaugh is 52, Hoke is 57, RR is 53). Sandusky was coming off some really excellent defenses yet no one gave Sandusky an offer. I mean sure he said he wanted to focus on his charity (gag) but still that kind of coaching talent would have ADs desperate for a good coach at least throwing an offer in his direction to see if they could lucky and lure him out of retirement. Yet he had nothing, I believe someone fairly high up was quitely letting everyone know this guy was radioactive.
Hopefully B1G drops the sanction hammer.

The topic discussing this is still visible on the front page of the MGoBoard.

I'm not sure if you can say it is Molk just because the stats match. Say for example Brian wanted to write a tell all on sports blogging. He might delibrately adopt a persona/false profile that fits very closely to say Spencer Hall or one of the 11 Warrior guys. All the stories about blogging for a large fanbase at a state school with a national footprint still work, and because there are some breadcrumbs pointing at Florida or Ohio State, folks would run off in that direction.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Server upgrades, drupal||
Server upgrades, drupal upgrades, CSS upgrades to allow better ad placement, fixing voting, it has all been talked about here and either not happened or taken much longer to implement than it should. I see Brian tried Cloudflare today, but it didn't get the job done. Perhaps MGoBlog Drupal needs to go the way of the Haloscan variant. Drupal itself is never that pleasant and perhaps this site just has so many customizations it is time to dump it.
We could use the upgrade though, MGo used to be one of the better sites in terms of layout, stability, etc. Now compared to Shaggy, /r/cfb in reddit, etc it is lagging behind.

15 or so is ideal. It means there is enough field the safeties have worry about people getting behind them, versus crowding right up on the line for run support, but still close enough that a couple checkdowns or runs will net you a fresh set of downs right on the goal line.

Because forums and blogs that have made a habit of allowing this tend to end up either losing court cases or settling out of court. Rather not have the blog staff distracted with lawsuits or spending time moderating the board to clean these up.

Close, but in the Michigan Blogsphere, WLA occupies that space.

You should really consider pulling down the snippet. We all know you got in and saw him, so it seems wise to err on the side of caution and inteperate his wishes about not being recorded to the extreme. I mean I get you want to meet him, but if this behavior was the norm for Michigan fans, they'd end up needing to hire a department's worth of off duty cops for security simply to keep Harbaugh from being swarmed over by people who want to shake his hand.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||I don't really see why you||
I don't really see why you didn't just put that link in the opening post. Opening post has no first name and a last name that while not Smith or Jones level of common, isn't uncommon either.
Over the course of the thread, in multiple replies, you provide links and context that make the information relevant and useful, but your opening post is useless in terms of standing by itself. Or basically while b^3 might come off abrasive, the whole thing is avoidable with better formatting and more information included in the first post. Starting a topic and telling people to Google for information and context on the conversation you chose to start is just bad form.

Braylon did a flip once while while running out of the Victory formation. I still remember seeing Lloyd immediately get him on the sidelines and get in his face. Didn't see Braylon in the Victory formations for some time after that.

My knowldge is a year or so out of date, but when we looked around epub options, we discovered that the idea of a strict and standard format is still a dream. It's like the internet used to be, with specific customization needed for certain browsers or in this case epub readers.
http://calibre-ebook.com/ was the tool that kept bubbling to the surface as a way to convert ebooks and get them working on various devices. Amazon also has its own publishing platform specifically for Kindle. We found some specific issues in terms of taking something optimized for a Kindle and tossing it on a Samsung tablet, but if you're not doing anything too tricky the differences aren't horrid.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||I can sympathize with her||
I can sympathize with her point to some degree. My semi-desirable (not Palo Alto, Menlo Park but also not Santa Clara) Silicon Valley town was running at 1.8x the national cost of living and buying absolutely murders your savings since the real estate specific cola is 3.8x and large amounts of cash down payment or all cash transactions are the key since it is always a multiple offers environment. I had to go up to 55% down to finally win a bidding war and that hurts in many ways.
Plus CA is rough in that it has a high sales tax and a high income tax. Normally you get one or the other (or they get you on property taxes). On the hand plenty of pay offs for living out there, have to take the good with the bad.
I can see being somewhat salty when the Aid office merely looks at your parents combined income and goes "Nope." Although to play the poor me is in bad taste because no one that level of income is hurting in SV by any stretch and her whole clothing is a complete "What the hell?". However I did run into plenty of folks who assumed that six figures automatically means you have suitcases filled with 100s just lying around your home and how I wish that was the case.

Since it is unpopular day...
I would honestly support the hiring of Charlie on the administrative side along the lines of what TJ Wheist does. For all this flaws at fielding a balanced college offense and clock managment, you can't deny his skills. He made Brady Quinn and Jimmy Clausen look like viable pro options to the point people drafted them and churned some NFL WRs as well. Mid to high six figures a year as Passing Game Quality Control Guy.

It's also amusing in that WD spent time in hot water for a Twitter rant. I guess he can relate.

You are welcome. The book came out after her tenure so it didn't have to be a super serious academic text. You might even be able to get it via the public library.
|2 years 12 weeks ago||Actually less at Harvard.||
Actually less at Harvard. When you first arrive the divide is clear. Because Harvard is more success at encouraging networking via societies, dining clubs, and also provides large stipends to low income students so they can participate, come graduation fewer members of the senior class have weak ties.
Thus their graduates place well (this being one of multiple factors) and the institution's rank benefits from it.
Plus it reduces drop outs which harms the rank.

I would direct you to the book 'Paying for the Party' by Dr Elizabeth Armstrong, who also happens to be a tenured professor at Michigan.
In summary it shows that the first gens and lower income leave large schools such as IU or Michigan with social networks that are weaker. You can tell the wealth of someone by the clothes they wear, the car they drive, the fact they can put up a 150 dollar tab at the bar every Fridaly, etc. While people are not so gauche as to check your bank account at the door to a paty, you will also fail to make it into certain circles if you cannot display certain markers of wealth and status.
With that you being the typical result. Some will overachieve just as others underachieve.

The Tranell Morant resume has Zook and Erickson's cell numbers in the reference section. I really hope those guys have Google Voice numbers they give out for these kinds of purposes or something, because if that is the actual private cell line, ouch.

That Vegas, as always sets its lines and attempts to control them in such a manner that they make money, not because they want to accurately predict the future with them.

Gundy when Pelini is unemployed and on the market? I suppose you can argue that Gundy did a bit more with a bit less than Pelini, but Pelini has a remarkably high floor at Nebraska, the ceiling just wasn't quite what the program wanted. Pelini also has roots to our prime recruiting ground and such.
The only reason Gundy seems more attractive is we've never seen him to lose to teams we care about, but if you're at the stage where you are calling Gundy's agent, why not call Pelini's agent first?

I mean I'm not shedding any tears over Hoke's looming depature, but it strikes me as unfortunate timing we have a post titled to celebrate his depature on Thanksgiving. Would have been classier to go with a Hate Week themed item.
