Count me among those glad he's gone from the B1G. Yea, he gets 9+ wins every year. But can any of you remember a big win, or do you, rather, remember all the big games they actually got THROTTLED in? You do that, plus look like a raging buffoon on the sidelines, and you find yourself without a job. I'm glad this guy is no longer a part of the B1G coaching fraternity. Great hire for YSU; also great attrition for the B1G.
It's been referenced that Brendan wants to study petroleum engineering. I think he's more than fine on the academic front.
While we can laugh at Michigan, I find this sad for Ferns. He gave EVERYTHING into being the leader of his class and recruiting others, even printing shirts, etc. Seems like a great kid. I'm sure this isn't what he envisioned for himself, especially seeing that this will be a significant downgrade on the academic side.
The problem with Ed as OC is plain and simple: recruiting. Ed is a fantastic coach, but I suspect that Meyer has "ace recruiter" as a requirement for a coordinator position.
I laugh that this is down voted. Look, sometimes they are. UCF doesn't make much sense otherwise. Remember Lonnie Johnson? It's an honest question.
Grades an issue?
"That's about the only thing that's boding well for J.T. at the moment." ~ Um, how about the fact that no charges were filed and no injuries were observed.
As for your take on his call, I think you are way off. It is clear he is shaken up because he is in the middle of a heated dispute with his ex-girlfriend...and she is resisting his desire for her to leave. What's more, he's calling 911. No one wants to do that. Have you ever been in an argument with a significant other? Are your words coming out like a talk show host's?
Thanks for the insightful response, LLJJGG.
For those who know Weber's game, what does he do well? Is he a kind of all-around back that Elliott is?
Born and raised in South Toledo. Just moved from DC area to - cough, cough - South Bend.
I should add: 4. Barrett playing so well and only being a RS-FR. Though, as we saw, injuries can happen at any time.
His dad, who coaches offense for Ohio U., played at Nebraska.
So cartoonish muscles make you a good coach?
People will focus on the records, but perhaps Nebraska got tired of this being the face of their brand. A good contrast was needed, especially since they are a classy program and fan base.
I would think that if Bert were to come back to the B1G it would be at Iowa when Ferentz retires. That's where he played.
Not to nitpick, but you said those who had worked for him. It is no secret Muschamp tried to throw Meyer under the bus in order to make excuses for his own tenure, but he never worked for Meyer. And while Tim Davis might have disliked him (though I cannot corroborate that), did they work together?
Meyer has a very big coaching tree extending from his stump, and I've never heard of former assistants of his complaining about him. They may have- I just don't know. Do you have any evidence for your claim?
<<edit>> See below: I misread your original point. Apologies.
Damn it. You're right. Flunk me back to 3rd grade for lack of basic reading skills. Sorry for the wasted energy here.
I think I know the Miami player story you mention, but who are the "numerous assistants"? Never heard this before...
Perhaps you would prefer BARWIS!!!
When was Spence suspended last year? Does this jive with a timeline of a *total* of a 1 year suspension?
Let Briscoe "go" in what sense? They didn't want him anymore? Didn't like that he was looking around? ???
Agree 100% about Thanksgiving. Terrible, Terrible food. I even wrote a bad poetic proposal about it.
"With the pall of sapped sinews and gelatinous hodgepodges, I am wondering if we can appropriate new symbols to express our thanks (perhaps drawing from appeased 19th century instead of 17th century foes):
Come eggs, come cheese,
come corn tortillas if you please
and lace your fair hues
with a dark culinary rouse
that stirs the palate
to take a righteous mallet
to all which would feign flavor:
Yes, you, you preening berry show thing!
And, you, you bread and celery entrail!
Take it like a bird, you poor excuse for poultry!
For we now grasp for fresh symbols
that do not so routinely crimple
So all find your place
under the salsa of grace
and let's toast to the legacy
of our late ebullient foes:
Let's hear it for Huevos Rancheros!"
