Alabama declared a state of emergency for a 1/2 inch of snow.

01/31/2018 - 8:37pm I get it.

You don’t like Hoke.

But that is no excuse to smear him re Gibbons. Gibbons offense took place when Rich Rodriguez was the head coach. Gibbons was only on the team when Hoke took over *because Rodriguez didn’t kick him off the team.*

Ditto the Lewan incident. That police report is dated 2009, again while Rodriguez was the head coach.

As for “it’s clear Brady Hoke was a Neanderthal in this department,” what was Rodriguez, especially given the accusations that lead to his being fired at Arizona.

They aren’t going to look any better losing in a new uniform.

09/28/2017 - 3:18pm But their brand

Benefits if they back winners, no?

And there's 2 ways to do that: send your talent to top schools & hire refs. I'm waiting to hear about refs.

09/27/2017 - 4:51pm Student aid, research grants, etc.

Pretty hard for a school to not receive any federal funds.

09/27/2017 - 4:49pm I would expect

That the FBI is passing the info on to the IRS. So there will be taxes & penalties to be paid.

05/08/2017 - 4:02pm That should be

4 games with Minnesota and 1 with Wisconsin. Let me guess - the little brown jug didn't have the retail optimization possibilities that a fake rivalry with Wisconsin had in Brandon's eyes.

02/04/2017 - 8:18pm My understanding is

That until recently, the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders were paid $50 per game; they now receive $150 per game. That maybe sounds like a lot for a 3 hour game, but how many hours of rehearsal, etc are required before each game? That hourly wage gets small awfully fast.

There are 36 cheerleaders. Guaranteed 8 games. That's $43,200 in pay. The Cowboys bring in over $400m in revenue. The Cheerleaders have had a reality show for 8 years. The football salaries are $148m. You'd think Jerry Jones could afford to pay the cheerleaders a little more.

11/28/2016 - 7:09pm Reprimand in public;

Apology in private.

Weren't there 2, 3 instances during the Hoke era where they apologized for ref's mistakes - like denying the timeout in the concussion game? But in private.

11/23/2016 - 1:04pm You can add

Little smokies to this.

11/23/2016 - 1:00pm I'm sensing that you don't cook much.

So if you like meatballs - this is buy 3 ingredients & heat:

Frozen meatballs
Bottle of chili sauce
Jar (12 oz or so) of grape jelly.

Dumb it all in a crockpot & cook until the meatballs are done (this will be sooner if you thaw the meatballs obviously)

If you want to kick it up a notch, bake the meatballs before putting them in the crockpot. You get a good crust, better color, and less grease this way.

You can play around with the jelly - plum jelly, pepper jelly, cranberry sauce, etc. just something sweet.

No "eews" about the grape jelly. This tastes really good.

Or little smokies

Little smokies, BBQ sauce (Stubbs makes some nice ones I hear) & booze - beer or whiskey. This is to taste - less whiskey obviously.

Dump in crockpot & heat.

12/30/2015 - 2:07pm Ahem. The flu vaccine provides protection

Against 3 versions of the virus, not just one. They have also come out with a version that provides protection against 4 versions of the virus. At additional cost, of course.

The problem with the vaccine is that due to the lead time to produce the vaccine they have to make an educated guess as to which 3 versions of the virus will be prevalent. Some years they guess wrong.

And Brando had moved Ablauf to a different job starting that game. His replacement wasn't listening to the broadcast feed like he always did, so she didn't hear the announcers going on about the hit to the head, missing an opportunity to alert the coaches & medical staff.

Except Minnesota has an interim AD and because of Kill's health issues they had language in Claey's contract that if Kill had to take leave or whatever, Claey's was the interim coach. Makes a lot of sense given this to make Claey's the head coach. Next AD will get to assess his performance.

10/18/2015 - 4:31pm Still not balanced.

Still not balanced. Michigan, Ohio state, Wisconsin beat MSU, osu, Nebraska & Iowa on a regular basis. If you really want balance, you need to split Michigan & osu, and we know how well that will go over. And the plains alignment only looks good because Iowa is playing well this year. And the Minnesota-Nebraska game needs to be protected because of the broken chair trophy.

And why do they need to be balanced anyways? It's not as if the sec east & west are balanced, and no one down here is calling for them to be realigned.

09/23/2015 - 3:03pm I read that, too.

And thought of the Bo quote:

“When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing”

Seems to me that that was what Hoke was trying to do.

duplicate post.

09/23/2015 - 2:47pm Brandon didn't just make them pay.

He made them pay the PSD if they wanted tickets. 

09/23/2015 - 2:46pm Even better.

That was shitty, but we had heard stuff like that about Brandon before the book. 

Bus Brandon is a business man.  And the contract with Adidas gave them 8 (I think that's the number) good tickets at the final 4.  Brandon used them for his family and scattered the Adidas people in lesser seats. 

 

09/23/2015 - 2:42pm That section told us sooo much.

I dare anyone to look at Hoke's tenure the same way after reading it.
