So based on the way the last coach left and the current coach is being treated now the "Michigan Way" is to viciously turn on whoever is in charge as soon you're tired of him?

Charles Vs. Charles

If you Michigan fans are feeling a little down here's something to brighten your day: Mike & Mike had Charles Barkley and Frank Caliendo (as Charles Barkley) making NFL picks on Friday and it was hilarious. Check it out.

What's the level of concern among Michigan fans this week? They were a national topic on Tuesday, specifically the idea that Harbaugh could be available if they fired Hoke. You'd expect them to pick up a win against Minnesota, but will that make the fans feel better?

If Tom Harmon were still alive do you think he'd ask Devin Gardner to stop "honoring" him by wearing his number?

NFL Quarterbacks by College

Since the Spartans are crushing Eastern I decided to take a look at the question I had the other day about NFL quarterbacks and colleges. I'm not crazy enough to go through and check out wins and losses, but the data at ESPN.com made it pretty easy to determine numbers. Here are the schools with more than alumni at quarterback on an NFL roster:

Virginia Tech 3
Michigan State 3
North Carolina State 2
Tennessee 2
Oregon State 2
Florida State 2
Boston College 2
Georgia 2
Oklahoma 2
Purdue 2
Michigan 2
Texas A&M 2
Auburn 2
Eastern Illinois 2
Wisconsin 2
Missouri 2

The two schools that surprised me are Eastern Illinois (Tony Romo, Jimmy Garoppolo) and Virginia Tech (Michael Vick, Tyrod Taylor, Logan Thomas). It also demonstrates just how impressive a run USC had at quarterback (Carson Palmer, Matt Cassel, Mark Sanchez, Matt Barkley), though it is amazing to me that Cassel is still in the NFL and Matt Leinart isn't on a roster.

Is ESPN going to be a social advocacy group or a sports network? They're pretty good at one and insufferable as the other and they're taking a big step towards the latter by running "The State of the NFL" on ESPN Radio tonight. It's sure to be a balanced piece with NOW president Terry O'Neill and ESPN-W contributor Kay Fagan (who thinks we should be reprogramming how we raise men.”) involved. It's this kind of thing that would make me think about dumping ESPN, if I was a cable customer in the first place.

Just how unlikely is it that three former Spartan quarterbacks would get wins in the NFL today? Drew Stanton had his first start since and 2010 helped the Cardinals beat the woeful Giants, Brian Hoyer led the Browns to a surprising victory over the Saints, and Kirk Cousins stepped in for an injured Robert Griffin to smash the Jaguars.

Inappropriate Webpage: Cabelas.com?

During my lunch break at school a few days ago, I decided to look for some Muck boots from Cabela's. Yes, our school is pretty tight on what access students can have for certain websites and filtering inappropriate content. Here is what happened when visiting cabelas.com:

It's difficult to read, but here's what it says:

I guess I should watch out for websites like Cabela's.
