    So, I was curious by whatever that cockgobbler was talking about; "(MSU Game stuff)" as he said.

    So, yeah, the "edge" was apparently when Sparty was doing their traditional pregame walk off two hours prior to kick..... and a couple of scUM fucksticks stayed on the field, and in Sparty's way... then, Devin Bush went to the Sparty logo and kicked his feet so as to deface the logo.... Shades of "Spike" Bolden, I suppose...

    Anyway, the game was 7 to 7 until about 2 to go in the 3rd, with scUM scoring another with about 10 to go in the game, beating an eventual 7-6 Sparty 21-7. As you may recall, scUM would go on to lose to Ohio State 62-39 before having several players sit out their bowl game (a 15-41 loss to Gator), notably including starting RB Karen Higdon who thought he was protecting his draft status (Narrator: Higdon would not be drafted). Which is to say, the "edge" appears to involve quitting on your teammates.

    DFBIA indeed.

    You know, as I think about it, the desire for the "Fab Five to be back" is about as perfect a Michigan Man thing that we could have (never mind, of course, that Howard was but 1 of 5 members of that bought and paid for class, and not himself the entire fab five. Equally stupid as to where I'm going, but not the point I am actually driving towards). Trying to relive the "glory days" where those days produced exactly zero championships. Just like the guy who first uttered the words "Michigan Man" himself. Precisely ZERO championships.

    Well I will give them credit for this; they have at least moved to reliving the 1990's instead of the 1890's.

    It's progress.

    I think Luke Yaklich ends up at Texas with Shaka Smart.

    Out #2. And I don’t think he’s switching the former commits back this late in the game- 3 outs. Now it’s up to Juwanna’s unknown recruiting and coaching chops...

    5 years and $2.0m to $2.5m per is certainly on the low end of contracts for a program with the size, wealth, and stature of ttun. which perhaps tells me a couple things: 1) ttun knows howard going to the nba after a few years is a real threat and/or 2) howard is taking a slight pay cut to boost pay packages for yaklich and/or washington. retaining at least one of those two has to be a priority for both howard and the program.

    on the other, howard has never been a head coach at any level and has no college coaching experience, so he doesn't warrant more pay like hoiberg, buzz, or cronin. oats to bama is the closest comparison at just under $2.5 for 5 years.

    that's challenge #1 for howard. like yaklich for ttun, juwanna was the heat's defensive coordinator. that's a lot of overlap. that being stated, no matter the head coach's expertise, you'd assume that the coach would still have a defensive coordinator and an offensive coordinator.

    I don't know. While not a blue blood by any stretch, Beilein built a pretty solid program there. Seems like a tremendous gamble hiring a guy who has never been a HC anywhere and has never coached college ball. Plus, as has been stated multiple times, the track record of former NBA players taking college HC gigs is atrocious. Yeah, Hoiberg has been fairly successful, but you counter him with Ewing, Mullin, Stoudamire, Manning, Avery Johnson, Drexler, Thomas, etc...

    The timing was awful for them, but maybe go the interim route with Yaklich to see if he's a viable option while giving yourself 9+ months to conduct a national search. Seems like they were reeling from Beilein leaving and wanted to salve the wound with a familiar name.
