Absolutely! It screams of sour grapes on his part by not going the extra mile. Remember, effort is free.
Harbaugh could have easily said, while still being truthful mind you, "Although we do not have documentation of James Hudson's mental illness during his time at UM, we are in full support of his stance and would strongly encourage the NCAA to grant him immediate eligibility." I think this is the crux of what Fick is getting at; no one, at least from my perspective, was saying to compromise your morals, but to actively stand in support of a kid.
Oh and by the way, one could reasonably infer that, Harbaugh by stating that he was not going to lie or however he worded it, doesn't believe the stance that the Hudson's are taking. Just my two cents
Man, this is disappointing news if true. It does seem like it could potentially be a ploy to drum up some excitement for his commitment, no? I mean, a few days before he is set to commit we get info that he isn't coming any more; all this coming off the dead period? Idk, guys, but lets see what happens before we freak out.
I think if you just kept the Red Block O, changed the jersey color to black, and got rid of everything else except for a nike swoosh the jersey it would look amazing. You could call them "The Woody" after Woody Hayes Famous Hat. Pants could be white to replicate his shirt that he wore. Black Helmet too.
I'd be cool with changing Hang On Sloopy as well. It is a nice tradition, but heading into the fourth Q you don't want to be "nice"
Agreed, nothing beats the buckeye leaf's lined up against the winged helmets.
I get that, but on the flip side I remember back in the 90's would Michigan would claim that we aren't as big a rival to them as MSU or ND. That attitude certainly has bit them in the butt. Wouldn't want the reversal of fortune to happen like that between us and PSU. I could see them being rival two to *ichigan's 1
We use to tailgate in the parking lot across the street from Tommy's Pizza. Good times indeed. Campus has changed a lot in the past few years.
Another Tradition I think would be cool is if we had an annual black out vs. white out with Penn State. Meaning for that game we always wear our black unis and they always wear their white... Kinda like USC and UCLA always wearing their home unis no matter the location.
absolutely KEEP "It's Time For War" That is a great tradition for the week that sets a tone, imo.
Get it done re cCR! I wonder how much they are willing to pay him if that is the case? Also, what other responsibilities and titles could they offer him to further entice him? Last free post Alex Gleitman made had him thinking still unlikely that it actually happens, but not dead.
Not sure, but I took that to be sarcastic in tone.
That is my read on it. I'm sure we will know this afternoon if this is indeed the case.
Another thread from TigerDroppings that is different from the thread I posted yesterday, but covering the same topic. Seems like they are doubling down that he is staying :( One poster in particular is very confident. Again, doesn't mean anything, but with what is coming out today by Jimmy Dean I'd say Corey Raymond slept on it and decided to stick with LSU. Have the media put something out there like this never happened and go about your business.
Logged in to UV! I mean, that is the best way to explain what we are seeing from URban Corleone to the heir Ryan Corleone
No you didn't, mostly I am just trying to read between the lines, but the one poster who said that cCR has his most talented group and wants to see it through has a history of posts that make it seem like he is connected. Again, just trying tor read between the lines and have no information to go off of what is available to me.
I just saw that. Fingers Crossed.
I am not getting my hopes up. LSU seems confident that he is staying per Tiger Droppings. It would be sweet if we got him though.
This so much!!!
Amen, NW is playing good ball right now.
This logic eliminates the possibility for teams to progress, and get better. It goes against the very notion of why we play sports. If Bama were to lose then it’s fair to say that they are not playing their best ball right now, while OSU on the other hand is. Teams do get better and provided the wins and losses losses are equal then you can’t say well the dominated the regular season so they should get in. No Bama is not their conference champions and is not playing their best ball so therefore the teams who won that 13th championship game (and also didn’t schedule FCS cupcakes in November) deserve to get in and Bama does not.
I agree with your assessment, but the committee has guidelines that they use to determine those four best teams, and one of those is conference championships. Only reason why I think this is likely to happen. What are you going to say to the Big 12 and Big 10!? Your conference ship doesn’t matter? I just don’t see it happening. But we probably won’t find out as Bama is that good this year.
