A while back Metallica released an EP which had the original Some Kind of Monster, some live tracks when they played 3 shows in one day in Paris, and an edited version of SKOM. In the edit they shortened the song up by taking out the weird meandering riffs at the beginning, and also cleaned up the ...

While that might be a bit hyperbolic, I agree with the premise. All 3 guys are very good coaches. The million dollar question is can Steele and the staff put together a game plan and make the right calls on ...

Chavis just got hired and didn't bring anybody with him. Muschamp was the only hire at Auburn. And it looks like Durkin won't bring anybody from Florida, as the current DC at Michigan is staying around to coach DL and Harbaguh is filling the rest of the staff with some Niners guys and others.
