  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sad to say, 8th grade year. Last minute red zone stand versus hated rival and I make a tackle at the three-yard line to save the game. Long gap... then I ran a marathon when I was 30. Not exactly Highlight Express.

Texas is a sleeping giant. Don't think, either, that Strong's approach won't start showing some results in living rooms and among recruits who appreciate his lack of desire to play the BS game. Texas will be back sooner than later.

I think Harbaugh to the Bears has real legs. If, as has been noted, his wife is reluctant to leave the Bay Area, Chicago is a much more enticing lure than Ann Arbor, if for nothing else than it's a major city.

Remember, too, that all of the previous scuttlebutt only featured Michigan and Oakland as players. With the Bears in the picture, now, this gets very interesting.

Pinkel is a great coach. He's 62 or 63, however and UM wants to avoid another job search in four or five years.

Not that they're not really fucking good at it.

Where's the grassy knoll? Hilarious. It looks like JFK's assassination stills.

Would he have to give it up or simply hire someone (probably a protege) to run it for him?

Comment 04 Dec 2014

These were the only two names on that list that made sense. Both would fit Cowherd's implication that it would be a bit of a surprise, Shaw moreso than Whitthingham. For me, the Michigan job would be a case of taking a job with supposed academic restrictions to recruiting over his current job, which has actual restrictions.

I actually copied that comment and was ready to simultaneously praise DJ's imagination and worry for his sanity.

I think I'd go with the cab to Depaul/Lincoln Park to watch the game, probably at McGee's. Better atmosphere. Plus, after the game, you're in a neighborhood with literally tons of bars/restaurants

Here's a link to a site that lists a few others:

Lot of people abandoning ship way too early. Louisville can make anyone look silly for long stretches. I actually thought they looked like the more frustrated team in the second half. I think we need to work on our zone (still new), especially closing out against open shooters, making easier passes, and getting our own shooters set (we had chances in the first half, just rushed, rushed, rushed). I loved our energy though, especially DRuss, Williams, and Tate. Remember, too, that we're just learning to play together.

I've begun to accept that there probably aren't any more "nice-guy" coaches left in college football who are consistently successful. Not being cynical; they just are driven, hard-nosed MFs. Hoke did not seem to be made of such stuff.

I'd have a beer with him, though.

Sorry, FSU has not lost in ages; I think they deserve to be #1. Number 3 is silly and, if this is any indication, shows that the committee is incredibly fickle.
