I was a pretty regular watcher of SNL in the 80's and I thought it was pretty funny, but over time it seems the shows are pretty lame. Does anyone think the current SNL's are funny? Or am I just old and don't get today's humor? ...

I tried this on the MSB but it went nowhere, so I will give it a try here.

He is the 24th ranked QB(ESPN) but has no offers. LSU at this point is lacking QB depth. What do they have to lose by offering him?[link=(http://espn.go.com/college-sports/football/recruiting/databaseresults?firstname=&lastname=&collegeid=&class=2015&position=QB-PP&state=)]LINK[/link]...

| Tiger Rant|| Did Miles want the Michigan job and possible repercussions? - dante on 12/30/14 at 1:07 pm|
I am making a LOT of assumptions with this post, but hear me out. The first assumption is that Miles wanted the job at Michigan....his dream job. As a result of the JH hiring it now appears that Miles will never have the opportunity to coach at Michigan, assuming JH stays for 5-6 years.

It's obvious that JH is Michigan's first choice. What is taking him so long? Is he waiting to see what his fate with SF will be or what other NFL options he has? It's apparent that Michigan is not his first choice.
Miles is obviously waiting on the JH decision before he goes "public" to addr...

I thought this might go better on this board than Tiger Rant.

All I can come up with is Terry Robiskie and Steve Ensming...
