Just a bad case of Mud Butt
Was that a policy Geiger put into place about retiring all #s of Heisman winners, or is that a school policy? If so, how long before we see #10 hanging up there?
And that whoever that guy is shat himself prior to being thrown
And I agree 100% on everything here. It would be an absolute dream scenario for UM if Harbaugh were to come. So many things would have to fall into place, plus, even if he leaves San Fran, what's to say he would even consider leaving the NFL. There will be teams lining up to throw a ton of cash at him to stay in the NFL.
Les Miles is awesome, second to only Bobby Knight in terms of press conferences (have you seen the Thanksgiving Dinner one? if not it's a must watch). He would be a serious upgrade over RR and Hoke, no doubt about that (but so would you or I). I don't know, at this time, I just don't feel him being as big of a threat to Meyer at OSU. I guess my thinking is, he deserves all the credit for maintaining an elite program at LSU, and winning a NC there, after Saban left. But that was 7 years ago, and Saban has what, 3 more since? They still compete, but Auburn has been to 2 NCs, winning one, and Bama has obviously done their thing (including shutting LSU out in a NC). Maybe since they've been almost a third wheel in their own division since last winning, it's an out of sight out of mind kind of thing. You look at the talent that team is consistently putting into the NFL (I think their entire 2 deep on defense was drafted 2 years ago), and it can be argued they are an underachieving team.
I think Miles would restore UMs name, especially on a National level, which helps the B1G, including OSU when it comes to the playoff, but I'd still feel good about our chances with Meyer running the show heading into the Game.
I love to watch Miles interviews, and he is a good coach, but I would be much more concerned if Harbaugh came back, than if Miles was given the job. Think about it, he was given the keys to a Ferrari at LSU by Saban. All he had to do was maintain it, and give him credit, he did just that. Miles did see some success at Okie State, but I think Gundy has taken that program further than Miles ever had it. The situation at Michigan isn't nearly as good as LSU was, and given what Harbaugh was able to do at Stanford, I would be much more concerned if he were to take the job.
yep-now I am sure of it-she would send me to the Pearly Gates. Lord Have Mercy!!!
This would be awesome. In all seriousness, is this even possible? Since he never went to college, he essentially went into the workforce, and never attended college, so is his eligibility still in tact? I would assume it would be similar to a Chris Weinke situation, where he toiled in the minors for years, and was then a 28yr old Freshman or whatever he was (obviously, Lebron didn't toil in the minors, but you get my point). What's stopping Lebron in 5-6years, from hanging up his shoes in the NBA, and going to get his degree at tOSU? Would he be able to play? I would think a 38 or 39 year old Lebron would still be better than 95% of all 18-21 year olds.
I would prefer to meet a naked Carrie Underwood a few times while I am still breathing. If that gives me a heart attack, I'd die one happy man.
Definitely room for concern, but hopefully some of the young pups can contribute, or, as I have brought up in other forums, why not change up the front 7 a bit, and show some 3-4 alignments, getting Grant and Kwon on the field together at the MLB spots.
I think it was more of a scheme problem, than the actual talent level the LB position. I think the Co-Coordinators, and the mixed signals slowed the players down at LB. Zach Boren was able to be plugged in easily because he picked up the concepts much faster and easier, than say Curtis Grant. Physically, Grant may be the best LB on the roster. I think the schemes and what they were expecting him to mentally digest may have been the reason for not only Grant, but every LB outside of Shazier, to be constantly out of position and a step late. Simplification of the calls and scheme should promote a down hill style defense, that is attacking instead of reacting, and the D is loaded with athletes at all 3 levels who can bring the pain.
Jerry Jones gets what he wants-you can bet the teams playing there are getting paid handsomely. i'd have to think he's drooling over the chance at getting Bama-OSU together. Open up the checkbook Jerry!!!
They could do it at the racetrack-like Va Tech and Tenn are doing in a could of years at Martinsville.
It's a little surprising to me that the whole NBC thing is still weighing into decisions for ND. Every big time school has every game televised these days.
Yea-if the list isn't changing, does that mean he's a silent commit?
Uhh-putting on a condom on a banana is a blowjob? Man, I've been missing out all these years!!! What the heck have I been asking for??
And I would imagine when the voice in your ear who is constantly reminding you of that very thing is Urbs, that's gotta be pretty tough to ignore.
Given how long Stoops has been at OU, I think it's a possibility he steps down before UFM leaves.
I think it's a strong possibility that Mr Bob Stoops may end up being the successor to UFM. Stoops has already been at OU for an extended period of time, especially with todays standards. I'm hoping Urban has found a work/life balance, and will be at tOSU for years, but in the event he's only here for another 5-7 years, I think Stoops would be a great fit. Heck, by that time, Pelini will probably be out at Nebraska too, he can come run the D (for those who don't remember, he had some pretty sick squads at LSU).
Depending on who did it, it's either an act of terrorism (Separatists) or war (Russia). Either way, Russia is behind it as they have been supplying the separatists with weapons. That's the reason it was reported yesterday the separatists were at the crash scene first, and didn't allow responders in until they found the black box and sent it to Moscow (this was in an early article, not sure if it's been confirmed). I think there is a no politics policy on these forums, so I'm going to refrain from saying what I think will happen next [mod: You got to like the two yard line and fumbled. No politics means no politics.]
While I never hesitate to fire up the grill, the more I watch competitive cooking shows (Hells Kitchen, Master Chef, etc.), has made me try cooking steaks in a cast iron pan a little more often. Reason is, the steaks stay very moist, since the juices are contained in the pan, and don't drip off. I've also started to put a dollop or 2 of honey butter on the steak when it's finished cooking, and let it melt over top of it. The sweetness of the butter, company with the pepper in the steak seasoning is a good combination.
I don't know about anyone else, but with the talent that has been assembled in the Front 7, I would love to see some variety in personnel, instead of the traditional 4-3 all the time, throw in some 3-4, 4-4, 5-2, etc. I may be in the minority, but I think C Grant could be in for a big year, but that would mean Kwon wouldn't see the amount of time the Big Kat did. The answer-figure out how to get them on the field at the same time.
A simplified approach in the secondary should do wonders, so hopefully, the front 7 can just play a down hill style and eat everything up.
Did I mention I am excited to see this Defense return to form this year???
"It's too high"-Major League
Wisconsin, MSU, Va Tech all run pro-style, run based offenses too. I'm not expecting either one of those guys to be covering slot receivers, just more of a pipe dream seeing both of them meet a RB in the hole and plant him 5yds behind the line.
I never understood the point of view, that everyone is wasted for 8pm kickoffs, and it's anarchy afterwards. There are hundreds of 8pm kickoffs every year, and more than not, everything is fine. The Game should be 3:30pm, period. Having the 2nd half go into dusk, and then early evening, is perfect. Under Armour makes some great Heat Gear, put some hand and foot warmers in, and sneak a flask or two of whiskey in and enjoy the show.
Green Bay, Chicago, Buffalo-none of these teams have problems playing games in cold weather, and the fans sure don't mind showing up.
