Public health officials have announced five deaths and 28 illnesses across 10 states caused by a germ called listeriosis found in prepackaged caramel apples.

So far, illnesses have been recorded in Arizona, California, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Symptoms of the disease include occasional instances of diarrhea, followed by fever and muscle aches, according to the CDC. While some people do not begin exhibiting symptoms until months after contracting listeriosis, they are more likely to surface a few days after the initial consumption.

The CDC reports that 26 of the 28 people who contracted the disease have been hospitalized, and that nine of these illnesses are pregnancy-related, meaning that they have been contracted either by pregnant women or newborn infants.

Pregnant women are especially susceptible to listeriosis, along with babies, senior citizens, and those whose immune systems have been compromised by cancer treatments, diabetes, liver disease, kidney failure, or HIV.

The outbreak is currently limited to caramel apples, and no specific brands have been reported to contain the bacteria.

“At this time, no illnesses related to this outbreak have been linked to apples that are not caramel-coated and not prepackaged or to caramel candy,” the CDC report reads.

Nonetheless, the organization urges consumers to stop eating prepackaged caramel apples until the disease has been contained, including those that have other toppings like sprinkles, nuts, and candies.

Why is how much MD spends on JH (or any qulaity HC) an issue?  What he pays for a coach has nothing to do with our Salary Cap or our ability to pay players... And more importantly, it has nothing to do with us...

I could care less if MD pays JH 15M a year, as along as we get a credible coach in here and have some positive results...  That's all that matters to me...

Whatever it takes to get a quality HC (and staff) in this place, I'm all for it, no matter how much it costs...

You could also ask how different everything wouldn be right now if it was a fucking fumble.

Which it was...

This argument always cracks me up. The 2001 squad struggled mightily down the stretch. Even if they beat the Pats, I'm not so sure they go into Pittsburgh and beat them the following week. If they beat Pittsburgh, I'm not sure they have the team to beat St. Louis.

There was no Pittsburg the next week. It was on to the bowl. And we would have handled the Rams no problem.

“While on stormchasing expeditions in the Tornado Alley in the USA, I have encountered many photogenic supercell storms. This photograph was taken while we were approaching the storm near Julesburg, Colorado, on May 28, 2013. The storm was tornado-warned for more than one hour, but stayed an LP [low precipitation] storm through all its cycles and never produced a tornado, just occasional brief funnels, large hail, and some rain.” –Marko Korošec

Reports out of Ann Arbor that the University of Michigan has offered Jim Harbaugh a six-year, $48 million deal to be the head coach of their football program have added some momentum to speculation that Harbaugh might indeed choose to leave the NFL and return to the college ranks for his alma mater, a once-proud program that has fallen on rough times. Harbaugh spent much of his childhood in Ann Arbor while his father Jack was an assistant under the legendary Bo Schembechler, and of course had a great college career as a quarterback for Schembechler and the Wolverines. Michigan fans and proponents of the move argue that Ann Arbor is his “home” and that between the alleged massive contract offer and his roots in the area, it’s the most attractive opportunity for Harbaugh.

While it remains to be seen if the offer is for real or if it’s enough to make Harbaugh pass up on the potential of leading an NFL team to a Super Bowl championship, the Raiders organization certainly must have a backup plan ready for a scenario in which they cannot acquire Harbaugh, whether he take the Michigan job or if the 49ers decide to trade him to another NFL franchise like the Dolphins or Jets.  There are other head coaching candidates out there the Raiders might be or at least should be considering to guide the future of the franchise.

Here are a few non-Harbaugh names for the Raiders to consider........

Jim Harbaugh Torn Between Michigan and NFL, Oakland Raiders

After reports surfaced that Michigan are prepared to hand out a $8 million per year salary for Jim Harbaugh, ESPN’s Adam Schefter came out with a Friday afternoon report that surely will disappoint fans of the Oakland Raiders as it appears that the Wolverines have their former quarterback seriously considering his future as his tenure with the San Francisco 49ers is set to come to its end after December.

Schefter posted a new report on his Facebook page indicating that new developments have come to the surface in which family and friends are trying to convince Harbaugh to come back to Ann Arbor after coaching his entire career in California since coming into the Raiders staff back in 2002. Harbaugh’s wife, who was once reported to have wanted to stay in the Bay Area, is also being reported by Schefter as on board with a potential Ann Arbor move. All things that don’t look good for the Raiders as Harbaugh is looking to make his decision as quickly as possible after the end of the Niners 2014 season.

Schefter’s full Facebook post:

49ers HC Jim Harbaugh’s family and friends have been encouraging him to take the Michigan HC job, but he is torn because his heart is in the NFL, per sources close to the situation.

Harbaugh first would like to see what head coaching opportunities come available – and he is likely to be a top choice for a handful of teams – before getting back to Michigan with an answer, per sources.

Harbaugh also is aware of the fact that Michigan might not be able to wait for him, especially when it might not even land the coach who is believed to be the school’s top choice. Plus, college football recruiting is in full swing, and the longer a school waits, the more of a disadvantage it can be. It leaves both sides, Michigan and Harbaugh, in a tough and delicate spot, even though they have mutual interest in each other, per sources.

Harbaugh would like to finish coaching this season, go through the players’ getaway day on Monday, Dec. 29, and then make his decision as quickly as possible. As another source said, Harbaugh’s agent, Dave Dunn, already “has a good sense of realistic NFL options already.”

But as one Michigan source wondered Friday, “If he wants to stay in the NFL, who will pay him $8 million per year?”, an indication that Michigan is prepared to go hard after Harbaugh.

There is an undisputed emotional connection for Harbaugh, who played at Michigan, is an iconic figure there, and has been hearing from family and friends about returning as the prodigal son. Harbaugh’s father, Jack, is influential with his son and he has made it known that he likes and admires Michigan’s interim athletic director, Jim Hackett, whom he got to know in the mid 1970s, when he was coaching the defensive backs at Michigan while Hackett was playing center at the school.

Harbaugh’s wife also is said to be open and on board to him going back to Ann Arbor if that’s what he wants, per sources.

While some have pointed out that recruiting would be a challenge, it is one that does not concern Harbaugh, per sources. Harbaugh believes he has successfully recruited before and he would do so again if he returned to college.

But his family and friends have voiced their opinions to Harbaugh, and made it known that it would be an ideal match. Now, likely by the end of the month, Harbaugh must make the decision that will shape his professional and personal life for years to come.

It is no secret that Harbaugh would instantly become the biggest name in Michigan upon taking the job, as the Wolverines basketball team has been the kings of the athletics program for recent years and the massive football fanbase views their former quarterback as an instant savior of the program should he replace the fired Brady Hoke. Recruiting also likely wouldn’t be a problem as Harbaugh is a huge name in football and Michigan’s reputation as a national brand will allow him to build a contender quickly that can compete with Urban Meyer at Ohio State in the Big Ten. Of course an owner like Mark Davis or any other owner in the NFL can come up with an enticing contract to keep Harbaugh in the NFL, but each day it is looking as if the money and campaigning from Michigan will be a problem for the NFL teams as with the Wolverines all in on their only real candidate on the horizon there is serious competition from the college ranks.
