I second/third/fourth all recommendations for Podcast Ain't Played Nobody. 

I would like to find a college football podcast that gets into the schemes and tactics, if anyone has one please respond!

Non-football I'm a longtime listener and fan of Econtalk.

The constant shuffling not only of offensive coordinators but of philosophies was quite problematic and makes me think Ash doesn't understand both sides of the ball enough to be an effective HC.

Sure, should take everything with a grain of salt, but face it, this is setting up perfectly for Schiano's return.

Regarding UM's potential coaching search; perhaps they find themselves in the shoes Ohio State was in when we fired John Cooper.  Looking back on Ohio State's progression to national power over the past 30+ years the hire to move John Cooper could be seen as the beginning.  Cooper upped the ante in recruiting tremendously and got us to be competing for national titles.  In any case, he built the brand over his tenure to the extent that he could so that the program Tressel inherited was able to quickly win a title largely with Cooper's recruits.  We all know the history from there.  

As much of a joke we think UM is today they are stronger than they were under Hoke, but is Harbaugh the guy that can get them to the next level?  Harbaugh may be UM's Cooper, he's improved them from the doldrums of Rich Rod and Hoke, but it's going to be up to someone else to take it to the next level.

The true tell for Dantonio cluelessness is that he's referencing a championship team from 17 years ago!  Meanwhile noted hater of offensive Nick Saban is in year 4 of a no-huddle spread attack.  When is the last time a championship game had 10-7 scoreline?  

Dantonio is an incredible defensive schemer but he's going to be undone at MSU by his stubborn attachment to 'his guys' calling the offensive plays.

I read Bacon's 4th and Long book and enjoyed it.  To me he seems like a good writer so it's strange to see this negativity directed at him.

Related to this topic does anyone here know what Steven Godfrey has against John Bacon?

If he manages to beat Ohio State even once, I'll probably change my tune. But until then, the dude is just Wile E. Coyote in my eyes. You know damn well he's not catching the road runner, so there's nothing wrong with being entertained by his antics as he tries.

Kevin, this is the best paragraph I've read from you.  You nailed my feelings toward Harbaugh.
