He wasn't fired for that. He was retained, as he should have been because he wasn't even at the damn practice where the kid died. Then after Maryland made a rational decision, he was ultimately fired because Maryland got scared about a bunch of losers that pretend to be outraged for retweets and likes that have since moved on to the next hot button social topic.
Right but he wasn't even there. When a patient dies on the operating table due to a surgeon's error, they don't fire the hospital administrator and hold he or she more accountable than the surgeon that fucked up. If someone slips and falls at a Walmart because a janitor is lazy and always leaves wet spots on the floor, they don't have a board meeting and fire the CEO. Football has become this ridiculous socio-political lightning rod where we hold all of it's participants more accountable than our friends, families, politicians, co-workers, employers and peers. Football is a fucking game. People need to get a life.
@Burning River. Why do you think a 1 loss B1G champ should always get in? What has the committee done since '14 that makes you think that is how it is? The committee can't make it any more clear. Losses matter more than wins. It's why B1G champ Penn State was left out in '16. It's why 2015 PAC champion Stanford got left out after having 4 top 25 wins including #4 ND and #6 USC. It's why 2016 Oklahoma got left out after having 5, count em 5?!, top 25 wins. It's why no 2 loss team has ever made the playoffs, and it's why no team that has a multiscore loss to an unranked team has ever made it. The B1G champ has been left out 3 years in a row. What do they all have in common? Bad losses. Don't have a bad loss, and B1G champ will go every year. Losses are everything. That is what the committee has shown us. There is no debate.
Just a reminder that Bobby Bowden had a player die in conditioning as well. And he isn't the only one. Happens much more often than all the egomaniacal windbags fighting for your clicks would like you to know. Saying Durkin is one of many to be at the helm when a freak accident occurs isn't as sexy as portraying him as Satan incarnate for having a player die at a practice that he, himself did not even attend.
Khalil Mack can be blocked by someone? News to me.
BTW, was just scrolling through Sushi Dai's instagram geotags and apparently they have just been awarded a Michelin Star. At $40, thats got to be one of the cheapest pre-fixe Michelin star meals in the world.
Sadly, still no QB success at the next level. Here's hoping Dwayne can break the cycle.
How could I forget Malcolm?! I’m ashamed.
This is a losing battle LCT. Say anything other than “Ohio State never makes mistakes, our players and coaches are infallible angels and every other team cheats and our losses shouldn’t count!” and you get downvoted to oblivion unfortunately. Discourse doesn’t exist here
First thing you should know about Sushi is that the big crazy rolls are an American thing. It is difficult to even find stuff like that in Japan. It is almost always nigiri only (just the piece of fish on rice) and maybe a hand roll or 2. All the famous places like yasuda and jiro’s restaurant are crazy expensive. What I would recommend is getting up early in the morning and checking out Tsukiji fish market. Biggest in the world, and that’s where they have the tuna auctions. It’s basically it’s own mini city and tons of cool stuff to look at on the outskirts. There is a row of sushi restaurants that are very old (Sushi Dai being my favorite) that have the best omakase ive ever had and it is pretty reasonable. Only downside is that it is usually about a 40 min wait at the good ones. You will find that to be he case with many Japanese hot spots. It’s not the price that is gonna kill you. It’s the wait. The best ramen spot in Tokyo is the same. Dirt cheap but easily an hour wait. The name of the ramen place is Rokurinsha. It’s in the basement of the Tokyo Station of the Tokyo Subway in this area called ramen alley. It’s tsukemen style meaning you dip your noodles in the broth but everyone from David Chang of Momofuku and Ivan from Ivan Ramen after that this is the best ramen spot on Earth.
Here. Did the work for you. $38 a person. Skip the cab step and just connect on the subway stop to the next station
There is a train! It is very cheap. It may be a bit daunting trying to figure out how to connect your way to your final destination, but it is a very easy/cheap way to go. It connects directly with the Tokyo subway system. Tokyo is my fav city on Earth so hit me with any other questions you have
Edit: it’s worth noting that the Subway in Japan is nothing like NYC. It is pristinely clean, people are super polite and there are English help desks.
Michigan has no other guy...this is their guy. There are no other options for them.
I wholeheartedly disagree. If I take my homer glasses off which is difficult to do at times, I'm man enough to admit that the Michigan job is still a top 15 job in college football. And with only typically 1 or 2 blue bloods losing a coach per season, that means whenever there is a vacancy at Michigan, they have the ability to land the top guy available at the time. I think there is a long list of people with more modern approaches to coaching, particularly offense, and recruiting that could produce better results than Harbaugh. Campbell would have come running if there was a vacancy. Vanables, Aranda, Brohm, Diaz and every other hot name out there would book their own flight to take an interview in AA. People are equating celebrity with results in Harbaugh's case. So I will concede that Michigan could not get a coach as famous as Harbaugh but they could certainly get someone with more upside that could produce better results if given the opportunity. But anyway, fuck them. I hope they ride Harbaugh's stupid antics for 20 more years. Just stating that they are stupid.
"Hi I'm Gene Smith. If you don't beat Michigan, then Fuck You"
Wow! Year 3?! That's surprising. One other difference that I could definitely predict is that we wont be as cultish about it if God forbid, the worst was to happen with Day. Michigan fans are always like "Fire Harbaugh?! Really?! Who else could you get?!"...ummm I dunno, maybe someone that could win the fuckin division within 4 years? Plenty of guys do more with much less. I don't think Ohio State will be so drunk on Ryan Day's name alone the way TTUN is with Harbaugh so that it prevents us for thinking rationally
Ready the booms sir.
Is the Bubba Bolden thing still in play? Haven't heard anything in a while and he deleted Twitter so was just wondering if there were any updates there. Would definitely take a little of the sting off Battle leaving if that is indeed what he chooses to do.
Did you know a team has not won it's FIRST national championship since 1996 (Florida)? 22 years and there has not been a first time champion. That tells you everything you need to know. 4 playoff spots for 65 Power 5 teams, and roughly 70 Group of 5 and Independent teams.....in which 25 of those teams get a head start by being arbitrarily ranked pre season based on nothing but speculation. Need to have more teams fighting for a championship on the field. Can't believe this is still even a contentious topic.
Can anyone in the LCT brigade top this acronym? Let's see what you got
Classic mirage.....Michigan's Ineffective Rejects Annually Getting Eviscerated
Can 11W just pay Birm what he wants and bring him back? This is getting ridiculous. Leading Ohio State website should have the leading Ohio State recruiting insider. Letterman Row can not match the user and editorial content of 11W and 11W can't match the recruiting content of Letterman Row. Can we just Voltron this damn thing together? It would be better for both parties and the fanbase.
Things you couldn't pay me to do:
1. Follow Bill Snyder
2. Spend majority of my waking hours in purple apparel
3. Wake up more than 2 days in a row in Kansas
4. Pick through Les Miles leftovers trying to build a team
This is all bad. This will be a 3 and out
