For those passing through during football season, attending a game in Missoula is a great experience. Beautiful setting.

05/27/2018 - 2:41pm Colorado School of Mines

You should receive an automatic one point deduction for failing to reference former coach  Bob Stitt when mentioning Colorado School of Mines!

Whether or not Grant ever plays another down for us, he clearly has the tools to make an impact on society.

Reading the entire article reveals his level of understanding  far surpasses the vast majority of people his age and older.

As you can surmise, I graduated in 1972. Given my scholarship for room and tuition, I estimate my total out of pocket costs for books, food, beer, fun to be around $10,000 for those 4 years, not counting a trip to Pasadena.

I saved diligently and my son also went to UM and graduated 12 years ago.. We were out of state and at an estimated total annual cost of $40,000 I figured that he blew through my total out of pocket cost in his first 9 weeks of school.

A UM degree is special and does open some doors, but at today's costs, other options may be more viable, and it really comes down to the indiviual person as to his/her level of success, happiness and accomplishment.

Many successful individuals went to no name schools;however, as evident above, there are ways for a student to have an great education at UM, just have to be somewhat creative and find some part time work. Studies have shown that students who work during their undergaraduate years have better grades, etc.

You have the skill set to be part of Mueller's investigative team.

Disney was right, it is a small, small world.

Wishing the best to a fellow caddie..

04/18/2018 - 9:25pm OK, so I am old

I had a 4 uear scholarship for room and tuition based on need. Worked  " meal job " at a sorority for 3 years. Was the dishwasher for lunch and dinner and for working 50 minutes each meal receceived my meal for free. No meals on Sundays so generally had corned beef hash on a hot plate for $0.19 or would splurge at the Cottage Inn.


In addition, for two years worked the evening shift as a clerk at the Health Service from 5 pm - 7 am. The residents ran a walk in clinic until about 9 pm, then I would go upstairs and study and sleep in the infirmary, being buzzed about twice a night to waddle downstairs to open the doors for an urgent medical call. Lots of stories there. Was paid $1.75 an hour, and considering I ususally slept for 6 of those hours, it was big money back in the day.


I would generally echo the above comments. Knew a few very wealthy, good individuals, but most of us were truly middle class coming from a family with one car, who had to work a job at the university for sundries, etc.


Not complaining - best years of my life.

04/07/2018 - 11:57am ND Roster

Freddy Canteen sighting.

03/31/2018 - 4:20pm No surprise

Perhaps I am a simpleton, but if Mississippi agreed to the waiver, they are partially admitting wrong doing which would hurt them in their appeal to the NCAA.

While we wished they supported a waiver, this does not surprise me.

Now we will see if there is any impartiality and honesty and support for the student athlete in the NCAA.

Wonder what would happen if Shea is disallowed, but we take a very bold stance and attempt to play him anyway?

Clearly we would take a financial hit, but so would ND, the OSU, and all of our opponents.

03/07/2018 - 6:43pm Patriots

Sounds similar to Belichik and the Patriots as I remember that they had something like 17 non-drafted players on this year's team.


He signs guys who are team players and typically not prima donnas.

03/03/2018 - 2:24pm I doubt that they would

I doubt that they would notice a displaced PMI on a guy his size.


While it could be a murmur, again a bit more difficult to auscultate given his size.


Likely to be premature atrial contractions, premature ventricular contractions,  a bundle branch block with perhaps left bundle branch block raising concerns or maybe EKG evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy.


While he will need aditional testing to excldue anythig of structural concern, still has a good chance of being okay.

Would expect that they have echocardiography at combine, but perhaps not.

There is a significant Mormon population in AZ

01/01/2018 - 1:41pm You are all wrong

I disagree with all the negativity regarding offensive playcalling.


Actually support the strategy of keeping everything under wraps so Notre Dame will be surprised on September 1, 2018.

12/26/2017 - 2:25pm Guess we will know for sure

Guess we will know for sure if he is spotted in Florida this week!

12/20/2017 - 1:45pm Welschof

So if I am reading the info correctly on him, he has been out working the last couplke of years.


Although raw, we will be getting a 20 year old fellow who likely is more mature than the typical recent HS grad. Kinda like getting a BYU kid who went on a mission. May be stronger given his age and perhaps closer to completing his frontal cortex maturation.

12/10/2017 - 6:20pm Early Signing Date

So with three " out of the blue" probable new additions and our scholarship limit, does the early signing date take on new challenges? I would guess that if a kid has a committable offer and may be on the fence, he may commit early so as not to be left out. This could lead to a flurry of early commits if the rules allow. Also we would have the possibility of having a nightmarish scenario if a kid sends in his LOI, but we are anticipating a better commit to occur in February and therefore not accept the first, early commit, even though the old adage of a bird in the hand may later be found to be reliable. 


I have no idea if LOIs were already sent to recruits or if the process is different in the early signng period than what is was historically. Would appreciate any insights.

12/10/2017 - 3:23pm Nap time

You are spot on.


Time for me to take a nap.


Apologize for misleading comments.

12/10/2017 - 3:14pm Jefferson

Sorry that I was vague, but the comment that perhaps Jefferson was not "coming" was meant to reflect that he would not be coming to join the team. I had not intended for it to be interpreted that he was not coming for a visit as I felt that was already established.


Again, my comment was offered as a possibility that Jefferson would not be a part of the migration so an offer was sent out to Bell.


Sorry for any confusion.

12/10/2017 - 1:50pm Jefferson vs. Bell

Perhaps I missed an earlier comment, but have to wonder whether we extended an offer to WR Bell due to Jefferson not coming.

12/10/2017 - 10:22am Cream cheese

We should be okay as long as we do not provide cream cheese for their bagels. In fact, to be safe, would not even provide bagels.

11/22/2017 - 2:37pm new opponents

I have it on good authority that we are feverishly working on replacing Washington and VT with Mercer and The Citadel.


Should be announced shortly.

10/17/2017 - 11:49pm 200 pounds

Henry Hill was a great player. Played back when I was at UM. Believed he weighed about 200 pounds and was under 6 feet tall. Had a few classes together. Smart guy.

10/14/2017 - 4:17pm Headphones

To piggyback on the QB question, are college players allowed to wear headphones on the sidelines to obtain continuing coaching from those in the pressbox? I notice that O'Korn typically sits alone without anyone providing coaching or guidance when he is sitting off the field.


If allowed, would think that this would provide various teaching moments from the staff.


Another option is to have Drevno in the box and Hamilton in O'Korns ear on the sidelines when we don't have the ball.

09/16/2017 - 3:34pm Block risk

Also he is slow to get the punts off. Perhaps too methodical in his steps.


Afraid that a block punt is likely against better teams.

09/07/2017 - 3:09pm QB

The only way Cincinnati beats us is if Harbaugh plays me at quarterback for the entire game!

08/20/2017 - 6:47pm Correct

I would think he might explain that sessions to date have been practices and "tryouts" will commence 8/28.

08/20/2017 - 5:04pm Clever

Once again coach is thinking outside the box. Very clever.

08/01/2017 - 8:59am McCaffrey needs to sit next

McCaffrey needs to sit next to Mone at the training table and eat everything on his own tray and half of what is on Mone's tray!

07/20/2017 - 8:39pm Gotta be more to come ( no pun )

High likelihood that multiple " disgraceful " things were found by Nutt's team or even the university. " Additional troubling information" according to the first release. Believe the one minute call could be easily explained or deflected.


How did they know to look for that call?!


Hopefully the full story will see the light of day.

02/01/2017 - 6:35pm disagree on Partridge

While Partridge did a decent job, no question that the recruiter of the year was Addie Harbaugh!

01/22/2017 - 5:10pm Reaves

If you read the article, this guy has had so many problems and so many shady dealings, the least being formerly related to Kiffin, how in the world was he even hired by Taggart and UO in the first place?


Also, $300 K for a co-coordinator is pretty darn cheap. How did UO manage that one?

01/14/2017 - 7:04pm New ownership

Great article, but you failed to mention that the new owner of the facility will be Drake Johnson as part of a settlement related to the unfortunate forklift accident.

01/11/2017 - 8:10pm John

Congratulatios to to Sarah, Coach Jim and the entire close-knit Harbaugh Clan. Truly a wonderful family.


Just a few words on unsolicited advice:


Spend time with Sarah, new son John and the rest of the children. Your devoted fanbase will understand taking a bit of a break as recruting winds down.


No disrespect  Coach John Harbaugh, but may have missed an opportunity and wondered if naming the child Najee was ever a consideration?


Best to the entire family. 



12/12/2016 - 8:28pm No respekt


Another slight to Garrett Moores

12/04/2016 - 5:33pm violation?

If he is a grad assistant, yet he calls himnself a coach, is this an NCAA violation as FSU may have too many coaches on staff?

10/17/2016 - 9:23pm just guessing

I'm guesing that he probably has a combination of intrarticular damage plus a tibial plateau fracture that needs stabilization.

10/12/2016 - 2:26pm another dumb bye week question

How is the bye week determined?


Do teams get to pick the week or is there a blinded, luck of the draw selection process.


I am guessing perhaps more the latter as we get a reasonably placed bye week while MSU had a bye the second week of the season. Even though they played ND the week after their bye, I doubt if they selected an early  bye weekend just to prepare for ND.

07/02/2016 - 3:41pm puzzled

So I am always confused with the decision to wait to commit until late in the process or even until signing day. While it might place the individual player more in the spotlight, or perhaps he is truly undecided, if you feel strongly about a school, I feel an early committment of a 5-star player would have a beneficial effect and attract more highly rated players, therefore making your soon to be future team a stronger one during your years in college.


What prevents players from having this viewpoint?

07/02/2016 - 3:30pm The Good Guys

I haven't been following this closely, but with us filling our O-Line fairly quickly, he probably feels that if he wants to be a member of this class, he needs to commit soon.


Looking at Florida's list of committments, there does not seem to be an urgency to commit there at present.

05/21/2016 - 9:51am Former wife

Wife was a terrible driver.


Got her a " If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk!"


Divorced a few years later.

04/28/2016 - 11:04pm I foresee no penalties... long as while a recruit he did not sleep on a player's sofa while visiting.

Realizing that he is yet to be in the fold, but doesn't Murphy have the size to potentially be a tackle?

01/24/2016 - 6:16pm viramontes

Doubt that we get Viramontes, but didn't Cal just lose its OC? Might possibly open the door a crack if we still have an interest.

01/17/2016 - 11:29am Raulerson

Raulerson would not count toward the 30 but would be a grad transfer and count toward the total of 85.

01/16/2016 - 8:10pm Too big to fail

Schools like PSU and Alabama and OSU for that matter get off light, while those in the past who tried to dethrone the historic powers (see Boise State) lose scholarships for letting a recruit sleep on somebody's couch and providing him with a $ 3 pizza.

12/27/2015 - 5:39pm Utah

Saw his family in SLC at our first game. Sat near the Butt family. Long way to travel for 2 carries.

Overall disappointing for all involved.


Wish them the best.

12/23/2015 - 10:08am Not that much. A much earlier

Not that much. A much earlier post from a couple months ago had him listed around $80,000 or thereabouts. Bet he got a boost for current responsibilities.
