Maybe Pitt will hire Schiano and then let Spilly come out of kitchen/blender retirement to cook the welcome meal, after which they will hire someone else as coach.

The Bears aren't going to pay him the 7-8 million he'd command. They're the least of my worries as far as competition with Michigan, and I'm a Bears fan. I mean, only a week or two ago everyone figured Trestman was safe because the Bears owners are cheap and wouldn't want to let Trestman go with multiple years left on his deal, but their hand has been forced by the team pretty obviously quitting on him.

Yeah, we all know our owners are too cheap to go after Harbaugh anyway.

Sightline-wise, it's one of the best in the NFL. In their attempt to try to keep the historic colonnades (they lost their National Register designation anyway), they were forced to build the stadium within the old stadium. This makes the stadium steeper than many, but also means that even seats toward the top are not super-far away from the field horizontally so I think they end up with the best cheaper seats in the league. It's also not a big stadium by capacity.
I'm not even sure you'll have to worry about jerky fans much either. You run into them everywhere in the league really, but with the team pretty much having quit, lots of fans will sell their tickets or just not go, and those that do show up will probably not really give a crap or will be there as much to boo as anything.

Unlike some other years, this Kentucky team is ridiculous. So much talent, if anyone isn't playing up to snuff they have multiple options to take his spot. Duke and maybe Arizona are even close. Obviously in the tourney a team could shoot the lights out on them but this Kentucky team looks even stronger than the Brow/MKG/et al squad that won it a few years ago

And Latos is headed to the Marlins. By process of elimination (Tigers don't have the prospects to get Cueto, Reds are trying to cut salary so it won't be a cheap pre-arb guy like Cingrani, Leake is likely to be in the 9 million range in arb) it's almost certainly Leake that the Tigers are close to getting.

Same issue with Narduzzi - the DC of a defense coach, how much of it is the DC, or is it Saban/Dantonio that makes the defense go?

I guess he's a risk, but at the same time, what's the risk? Frankly, the program isn't even mediocre right now. What's he going to do, miss a bowl game? Oh, right. Guy can clearly coach, and he's an ace recruiter. I suppose the other risk is he's young enough that he could go supernova and go to the NFL. If he does that, it means we've been in the playoff probably more than once. Sign me up for that problem!
And the old crabby down in front crowd will LOVE LOVE LOVE the Mensa thing.
|1 week 3 days ago||I don't think you have to||
I don't think you have to worry about the Bears regardless. Everyone assumes that Trestman will be back because the Bears are cheap and never fire coaches so quickly. Even if they do fire Trestman, they (read: ownership) do not show any inclination to spend the 8 million or whatever it would cost for Harbaugh.
|1 week 5 days ago||They were just shooting an||
They were just shooting an ungodly percentage. I mean, one of them was a stepback 3 with Walton draped all over him. Another one was from like 30 feet. They hit a running floater from 7, 8 feet out with our best defender (Caris) practically in his shorts AND Doyle getting over to challenge. Sometimes they just can't miss.
The defensive problems were more in regards to them getting in the lane at will for a while. The D tightened up on that and then everything they threw up there went in anyway.

|2 weeks 2 days ago||Ole Miss is not the same||
Ole Miss is not the same thing as Mississippi State. That's like saying "well, Michigan draws recruits and Michigan State has great facilities so MIchigan State can do the same thing." Granted, Ole Miss is not exactly comparable to Michigan as a historical program, but Michigan State also has way more credibility historically than their MSU counterpart. But within Mississippi, Ole Miss is the "big brother".
And both of them are pretty much permanently behind Bama, Auburn, LSU and aTm in recruiting pecking order.

You know who else didn't look like NBA players a couple of years ago? Stauskas and LeVert.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The point is we have him||
The point is we have him signed earlier rather than than waiting until the end of the season and hoping some NFL team doesn't start talking with him with the Niners permission with an eye to a trade.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Being the offensive||
Being the offensive coordinator for the Broncos right now is similar to Josh McDaniels being Tom Brady's quarterback coach. Peyton Manning coordinates that offense. I'm not even sure how much the OC even calls the plays, particularly since Peyton can just change them anyway.

So would Nebraska trade in the Faux Pelini Cat for the Nard Dog?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||He doesn't want to speak for||
He doesn't want to speak for the next coach, but yeah, Mattison came to coach under Brady, and I'm pretty sure he even said he wouldn't have done it for someone else. So he's probably retiring, or maybe headed back to the NFL eventually if he wants to still coach, but he's not going to be sticking around.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Ah yes, the Jets|

Bill Martin got the department from fiscal problems to a fiscal powerhouse running a surplus every year (before the BTN and other money cannons were truly going), got many of the upgrades and renovations going for our facilities, and frankly, hired a good football coach that just didn't work out. We could do a hell of a lot worse than another Bill Martin.
Like Goss and Brandon, actually.

Although they'd probably want a bigger arena (theirs only holds 2000) they're a consistently good club squad, and won the tourney a couple times in the last 10 years.

Young is going to be a chucker at near-Kobe levels this season for Oregon. Should be interesting to see who chases him around in Brooklyn. He's going to shoot a lot no matter what.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Eh, I get why they say it||
Eh, I get why they say it that way. They're not going to say it's for domestic violence because, as they note, there is a process for that in the justice system. But we can see the pictures and read the details, and the standards of the team don't require proof beyond a reasonable doubt, particularly when the player involved already has a strike against him.

There's a non-zero chance that Jordan will be coaching Butler next season. No one but a few people at Butler seem to know what is up with their current coach (on leave for unspecified medical reasons), and I'm not totally sure that the assistant they have heading them up on an interim basis (who was previously a HC at Gardner-Webb) would get the full time job if Miller ends up resigning rather than just being on leave.

A bit off the train lines, but Temperance Beer Company, 2000 Dempster St, is a brewery with a tap room and their beers are quite good. They aren't a restaurant but they do have menus to order delivery. Won a silver at this year's GABF for English-style IPA.
Smylie Brothers (1615 Oak) has an event with a flight of 2 of their beers, 2 Founders (Rubaeus and Breakfast Stout) and 2 more from 3 Sheeps (Sheboygan, WI). As I understand it that place gets extremely busy and reviews are all over the place on it.

Um, it's actually supposed to be 15 degrees colder than last year, just as windy, and there is a chance of rain/snow/wintry mix in the forecast.
