I personally like 16 and Falcon better ... Props to the best fighter jet in American military history.

I think that is a complete accurate representation. Think about Louisville - elite with Pitino. Think about even Kentuky - Rupp then nothing, Pitino then nada, until they got Calipari. Each program is just looking for it's next god-like elite coach.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I agree ... So much ranting||
I agree ... So much ranting about the need to keep things clean and simple. My god! You can do small with class. I hated the halo, like everybody, but love the idea of the national champs and legends listed on the press box. It is so blue and barren up there.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Prior to that play was the||
Prior to that play was the worst no call of offensive pass interference I have ever seen ... It was the right move to let the clock run out ... It was a make-up for Woodson getting completely shoved out of the way for the WR to make the catch. No luck in that sequence ... Just atonement.

He had the chance to get a FREE education to one of the top public universities in the country ... One that I had to bust my ass for - studying extra and working extra jobs to pay for it. Sorry, but I think I have a right to complain about a talented kid who didn't seem to give a shit when provided a golden opportunity.
|9 weeks 2 hours ago||Oh yeah ... Sorry for||
Oh yeah ... Sorry for ripping on a guy who is probably going to make millions of dollars each season. Crazy to think we would want him to care about his college and teammates. Nice job getting butt hurt and protecting a soon to be pro athlete who simply didn't perform on the field and didn't seem to care about it.
|9 weeks 1 day ago||Attitude reflects leadership||
Attitude reflects leadership ... That is how you get people to buy in to the culture you are creating. You stress discipline in drills, lifting, and dietary habits - you back that up by doing the same in your routines so the players (or employees) can see it. You stress commitment to the team - you show how you trust your staff and respect the players. You want people to stay late to study the Playbook or lift a little extra after strength training - you stay after hours to answer player questions and go the extra to ask coaches their thoughts. In a nutshell ... The culture you create is the one you exhibit. You show people what they should expect from you and, in turn, what they need to expect from themselves. You make the message consistent so everyone can see what it is and choose to fall in line.

Wow ... Don't comment on iPhone ... Front = Tough. Sepoys = Serious. Sorry about that gents and ladies.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I am speaking from the||
I am speaking from the perspective of someone who did a part-time MBA ... 2 classes per semester and finished in only a couple years. Don't sleep on a place like Wayne State for that.

Not to mention the loss of DJ Wilson's size ... I think that hurts our low post presence.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Have the second the take on||
Have the second the take on Gandy Dancer ... May have been cool 15 years or more ago ... But, ate there recently, and my god it was awful. Stuffy. Overpriced. Shit service. Boring menu.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Grange and Mani Osteria are||
Grange and Mani Osteria are two of the current favorites. Mani is pretty much the same as Bigalora but a little better .. Biga started in Southfield and is also in Royal Oak, but Mani is all Ann Arbor.

If Katy Perry and margaritas are gay, who wants to be straight?
|15 weeks 5 days ago||But Mattison was a great||
But Mattison was a great recruiter ... And he did take our defense from 100 to like 20 in his first year. We have been pretty much in that top 20 range the rest of his years here. Having him "assist" Durkin is a good call. Provides some continuity with players / recruits. Can help Durkin up to speed with what guys do well / don't do well. I think the lack of better CB play went hand in hand with not having a field general safety you trust back there. Gotta play off to keep everything in front when your safety can't be trusted to play the over the top routes well. MSU will realize this soon as Drummond is gone.

Both MSU and OSU seem to be doing just fine with them. Winning championships and bowl games. I say we use them to motivate our boys.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Except for how, during the||
Except for how, during the best years of our program (under Bo none the less) we had them. Seems to me they might work wonders. Gotta change the Howard perception that "nobody in practice does what they need to be great". Helmet stickers seem like a good way to motivate some of these kids player smarter. Hold onto the ball, hit harder, lift stronger. Study more film, etc. All things this team will need in order to become good again under Harbaugh.
|16 weeks 14 hours ago||Honest question - Aren't all||
Honest question - Aren't all offenses technically system offenses? You recruit guys for a certain responsibility and then continue to plug them in. Oregon and Ohio State just look different but Bama, Auburn, USC, etc. Those places are the same philosophy just in a traditional package of plays - i.e. Under center, pro set, power I.

I think that is a great point and something people forget.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Nice troll ... Your name||
Nice troll ... Your name seems really close to Sloopy ... Like the Buckeyes faux fight song. Hang on to your hats when Harbaugh spanks both Sparty and Brutus at home in 2015.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||I think you may be limited to||
I think you may be limited to 9 staff members.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Except they were in hurry up||
Except they were in hurry up offense most of the 3rd and all the 4th quarter up 3 scores. Horrible clock management. If even one of those drives ate up an extra minute then Sparty would have run out of time. And you say coaching had nothing to do with that loss. Bahahaha..
|17 weeks 16 hours ago||You have to ... If you wait||
You have to ... If you wait for the mail catalog all the good shit from it is gone already. Gotta be on top of the M stuff if you want new gear.
|17 weeks 1 day ago||Ever heard of a young team||
Ever heard of a young team maturing into something special. Yeesh. I'd hate to see how you measure life in general .... No room for improvement or excitement. Wow.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Ummmmm, I think he forgot to||
Ummmmm, I think he forgot to use a comma ... As in, Harbaugh is a proven winner. Going to 3 NFC championship games and what not.
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Unless he doesn't want to be||
Unless he doesn't want to be in the pros any more and all of the chatter now is just airing of what has been agreed to behind scenes.

Just replace $2 mil a year with 20 cubic yards of grass ... He'll be stoked to come.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Who is this Mullens you speak||
Who is this Mullens you speak of? For a minute I was excited about the singer or the basketball "star" ... But alas, Shawn and Chris are both I's instead of E's. I hear there is this good coach at Miss State called Dan Mullen though - hope we go after him!
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Why can't he know and just||
Why can't he know and just not be talking about it in the media? He probably doesn't want to have a Herbstreit-Miles biff and you have to keep your mouth shut for the 49ers (owner, players, fans, etc) otherwise they all just pack it in and why play.
