|03/04/2018 - 7:00pm||I initially presented this idea midseason||
And people said he hadn't "earned it" quite yet. I don't think winning this B1G title necessarily moves the needle super significantly in that respect, but I feel like his consistent outperforming of expectations (and talent), as well as the man he is off the court and amongst the community is far and away enough to have earned the honor. He's a great coach and a better human being. But also a really great coach.
|03/01/2018 - 6:55pm||Tickets were delivered||
In person, in the lobby of the big office building we both happen to work in. HTTV.
|03/01/2018 - 2:34pm||meet you down in the lobby by the piano?||
|03/01/2018 - 2:33pm||yep||
meet in front of the building right now?
|03/01/2018 - 2:30pm||still available||
if you want em.
|03/01/2018 - 2:19pm||STILL AVAILABLE||
Just comment that you're coming to 50th and Broadway and tell me when to meet you on the corner and I'll come down with the tix. I'm wearing a Michigan hat so easy to spot.
|03/01/2018 - 2:07pm||If neither of the guys above confirm||
In the next five minutes, you can come meet me at 50th and Broadway. Just comment when you're leaving so I can gauge when to go down.
|03/01/2018 - 2:03pm||If the guy above you doesn't respond in the next five minutes||
|03/01/2018 - 2:02pm||Meet on the corner in five minutes?||
I work at 50th and Broadway too. Meet on the north west corner in five minutes?
|02/27/2018 - 12:51pm||The reason I bring this up now||
Is because people are trading for draft positions pre-NFL draft. Trading the 2nd overall pick for 3rd and 5th and so on... I'm looking for names of guys whose talent alone (minus situation) you would target in a two round rookie draft.
Also, it's a slow day at work.
|02/01/2018 - 2:18pm||Hated: GG Allin and the Murder Junkies||
It's a documentary Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Old School, Etc) made about GG Allin. It's very disturbing.
|01/17/2018 - 2:44pm||Schembechler Hall||
|01/17/2018 - 2:39pm||My opinion||
John Beilein has done enough for the University and program at this point in his career to warrant this. If you're going to say he doesn't deserve it because he never won a national championship there are two words I'll say to refute that claim: Bo Schembechler.
I personally think an honor like this would be all the more meaningful to Coach Beilein while he's still on the sideline. It shows that you can acknowledge greatness while it's happening, without the benefit of hindsight.

Passing Down Defensive Coordinator Title
|09/26/2017 - 1:52pm||This one is a legit rivalry, but||
At every USC game the band plays the Fleetwood Mac song "Tusk" and during the chorus the fans all cheer "U-C-L-A sucks" no matter who they're playing. It's actually one of the cooler marching band songs and fan cheers I've seen.
|08/08/2017 - 10:10am||Great scene by scene recap and analysis|
|07/17/2017 - 11:29am||The Targaryen is Dany||
Jon will receive a note from Sam about Dragonstone having a shitload of dragonglass on it (remember Jon was talking about how they need to mine for dragonglass in this weeks episode) and talk to his lords up north about going to treat with the dragon queen to allow them to mine the dragonglass to make weapons... This is all setting up a Jon/Dany meeting this season.
|07/17/2017 - 11:27am||In the books||
there is rumor of Nymeria becoming this badass She-Wolf Pack Leader that roams the Riverlands like a boss. I don't think she'll have puppies with her, but she could have a band of wolf followers by her side.
|01/14/2017 - 4:52pm||Exactly right||
The NFL owners made their pick entirely based on feelings in the moment. As someone said below, Kroenke offered the more "grandiose" stadium plan which put a bit of a spell on everyone in the room. They saw the shiny thing and got distracted and totally forgot to think about the true moneymaker: a successful and sustainable market in Los Angeles.
The Raiders are a national brand unlike any team in the NFL other than the Packers, Steelers and Cowboys. The Raiders moving wouldn't have fractured a fan base because the majority of Raider fans don't live in the East Bay. They have a truly regional fanbase dispersed all throughout the state of California. The false notion the owners were operating under was that Los Angeles was desperate for a "home team" which wasn't and isn't the case. The city's makeup is already one of transplants from all over the country who bring with them the allegiances of their hometowns. Los Angeles isn't Charlotte or Houston and my guess is it took a year staring at an empty stadium for the owners to realize that.
|01/14/2017 - 10:45am||If the NFL had any foresight||
They would have moved the Raiders to LA last year. The Raiders have such a fervent and dedicated fan base that travels from all over the west coast to wherever they're playing. If they wanted to prove the concept of football in LA they would have taken a team with a following and put them in the largest market to guarantee ticket sales and excitement in a highly competitive market.
The Raiders will be successful in Vegas because the Raiders would be successful anywhere they moved on the West Coast. They could move to Palm Springs and you'd still have Southwest flights on Sundays filled with people in Silver and Black.
Football in LA will only be successful for one week every season: when the Raiders travel to play the Chargers.

... Or promoting Michigan.
|12/05/2016 - 11:26am||Uhhhh...||
Mike Riley, Gary Andersen, Rich Rodriguez are three current coaches that have coached in both the Pac-12 and Big Ten.

|12/18/2015 - 10:27am||Outstanding questions||
Who are Rey's parents?... Feels like the implication or story we're meant to be leaning towards is that she's Luke's daughter who he left on a desert planet for her safety when he became the most hunted man in the galaxy. But if that's so, then who is her mother?
Who is Snoak?... In theory he's probably a character we've either seen or heard of in the past. Possibly the Sith Lord Palpatine tells Anakin about in Episode III. Is there anyone else he could be? He had pretty distinctive facial scars that would imply he was in a battle of some kind and suffered significant wounds at the hands of the Jedi or Rebels.
Where is Lando?
What are your thoughts guys?
|12/15/2015 - 4:51pm||To be fair||
Arizona did lose their best defensive player at the beginning of the season, and were then riddled with injuries on the defensive side of the ball throughout the season.
Our defense didn't do too well after we lost one of our best defensive players (Glasgow). It's hard to perform well when injuries cripple you. I do think Casteel is a pretty solid DC. Not a silver bullett, but also not shit.
|12/11/2015 - 12:01pm||Yes||
Yes he does.
|12/11/2015 - 10:19am||Does anyone have a solid explanation for why Tulane has sucked?||
Given the amount of talent in Louisiana and the south in general, the appeal of living in New Orleans, etc. you'd think they could easily become a Northwestern-esque program. Top notch academic institution which would appeal to the Stanford/Northwestern/Vandy types of recruits who highly value the strength of their degrees.
And beyond that, you'd think that a top notch coach would be at least intrigued by the idea of living in an awesome city that also happens to be pretty talent-rich for recruiting.
Something doesn't compute. Why do they suck so much?
|12/10/2015 - 3:13pm||Greg Jackson||
He coached linebackers in 2009-2010... I could easily see him move to LB coach with Zordich and Pruitt working with the DB's. It would also make Jackson a more appealing DC hire in the future given he'd have extensive experience coaching multiple positions.
|12/10/2015 - 9:16am||You know nothing (Jon Snow)||
All of us are far less qualified to be deciding who would be a "good fit" than Jim Harbaugh, which is why we should all simply want whatever Harbaugh wants.
If he offered Anderson the position last year as is reported, then I want him. There's a reason he was one of JH's first calls upon getting the Michigan job. I don't know what those reasons are, but whatever they are, I like.
|12/03/2015 - 4:05pm||Good luck to him||
I wish him nothing but the best and could see this being a fantastic fit. He has ties to the region and is an hour and a half flight from Pahokee. Go chase those rabbits RR!
|12/03/2015 - 2:45pm||Matt Rhule||
Matt Rhule is getting the Penn State job when it opens up.
|12/02/2015 - 4:12pm||He's never been fired||
Don't know who you're talking about...
|12/02/2015 - 4:08pm||Washington's Defense Under Wilcox||
As Steve Sarkisian's defensive coordinator at the University of Washington, Wilcox took a defense that ranked 108th in the nation and turned it into the 39th ranked unit in his first year.
|12/02/2015 - 2:44pm||I'm not saying all three are gone||
I'm saying one of them could leave for a promotion... And just to refresh your memory, two of the three were working under him this past year.
|12/02/2015 - 2:39pm||You're right||
But all have also spent a year working with Durkin now. I wouldn't be surprised to see one or two position coaches leave for promotions. It also wouldn't worry me as I have the utmost faith in JH to replace them with as good or even better options.
|12/02/2015 - 2:36pm||I was thinking the same thing||
That shit ain't happening. But a Mike Zordich, Greg Jackson or Jedd Fisch isn't outside the realm of possibility.
|12/02/2015 - 2:33pm||It's not necessarily a money thing||
Harbaugh could encourage a position coach to take the promotion. He's got a coach in waiting essentially in T.J. Weist.
|12/02/2015 - 2:31pm||I can only imagine||
Given how much their AD talked about becoming an offensive juggernaut (Oregon of the East) they're planning on offering a sizable amount of money to some offensive coaches to work under Durkin given his defensive background.
|12/02/2015 - 2:09pm||Give me Lance Anderson||
Give me Lance Anderson or give me death.
|12/02/2015 - 12:02pm||Realistic Candidates||
Should Durkin leave:
|12/02/2015 - 11:53am||I spoke with Vic Fangio about a year and a half ago||
While he and Harbaugh were still firmly in place in San Francisco. I was filming something with him and he knew I was a Michigan grad and told me a number of great Harbaugh anecdotes. I asked him a bunch of stuff about Michigan and the 2011 search and talked to him about his career trajectory and whatnot. I came away from the convo thinking this guy is an NFL guy who wants to be an NFL Head Coach.
I don't think he'll leave the NFL for a lateral move. I could see him leaving for Head Coaching opportunity, but I would assume that would be merely a stepping stone to get him into the league as a HC.
|09/30/2015 - 6:20pm||Sometimes when you're on...||
You're really fucking on.
|09/09/2015 - 10:28am||He snubbed him||
I like that he doesn't feel pressured to talk to a slimy piece of shit he doesn't like just for the sake of "shaking hands/kissing babies."
I can only hope he'd snub Rosenberg the same way. Harbaugh respects people who are good at their jobs, a la Judge Judy, not ass clowns who try to provoke people to further their own personal agendas and get cheap clicks.
Bravo Jim. Bravo.
