  • (Quote)   I'm sorry, what part of the thread entitled "Alright I'll say it, Mark Dantonio" made you think "oh he thinks this is a hire that would easily be executed and Mark Dantonio would love to coach here."  It is obviously on…
  • (Quote) Wait a second, who is calling it a lateral move?  Michigan is the best job in the country.  [:)]
  • (Quote) That's bonuses.  Not sure Sparty could sustain that rate annually when their Rose Bowl Champion team can't fill the seats in EL.
  • (Quote) I hear you loud and clear, I really do.  That said, I don't think the term is going to be abolished anytime soon.  It is too ingrained in the University of Michigan culture at this point.  I think Hackett would be better served to try to gui…
  • (Quote) I agree.  I'm not sure I fully understand why Harbaugh isn't available until the end of December.  If his players and owners hate him so much, and they want him out - why wouldn't he just step down now and start picking out a home in Ann Arb…
  • 1.  It would send Sparty into a downward spiral if we got him 2.  If we didn't get him, MSU would likely have to match a large offer ($5M - $6M) that they just don't have the funding to do - putting them into financial ruin. 3.  The guy is a total a…
  • (Quote) People should just use the "Michigan Man" phrase properly and not make the false equivalency as somebody who coached/played for Michigan previously.
  • (Quote) Let me ask you this:  if Greg Mattison had never been an assistant at Michigan (a tradition-rich program), and didn't believe in Brady Hoke, would he ever have left an NFL Defensive Coordinator job to become a DC at a college program?  That …
  • Bielema is a goon who supported his player when he intentionally tried to injure a Michigan Wolverine.     No thanks.

  • (Quote)   This.  I am so tired of people claiming tradition and Michigan, the Michigan Man mantra, etc. are a "crutch."  It is these things that make Michigan special.  It wasn't a crutch when Bo told his assistants to go from Miami (OH) t…
  • I think the raw talent is there, but our current issues go beyond coaching in the natural sense.  One issue is we don't have well-developed upperclassmen who are teaching the youngins' as they come in.  The coaching staff can only teach so many peop…
  • (Quote)   Just watched it.  Ugh.
  • (Quote) And even in the worst of scenarios, if that happens, the sun will still come up the following morning.   You guys act like change isn't imminent, that you somehow have to push the issue.  We are 2-3 and averaging 104k in attendance per game.…
  • (Quote)   Nice recap of 3 and Out!   So RichRod didn't get a fair shake.  Why?  What is going on within our athletic department and University that gave 2 winning football coaches a collective 7 years to just run the program into the ground?  What i…
  • (Quote) Change is coming.  No reason to incite riots around Michigan Stadium.  I know it is fun as fans to think we control our destiny but we don't.  A poor football record hurts the reputation of the football team.  A bunch of institutional in-fig…
  • (Quote) I think this is a big part of it.  It's the only common denominator in this mess.
  • (Quote) You've seen how incompetent he is at stopping delay of games before the play clock runs out, managing timeouts at the end of games, etc. - what makes it so hard to believe he was equally disengaged and not cognizant of what was going on here…
  • (Quote)   Thank you for posting all of this so I didn't have to.  Brady Hoke is a good person, who cares about the players in his program.  His not pulling Morris right away is more of a statement of how lost on the sidelines he is than his characte…
  • (Quote)   I respectfully disagree.  Dave Brandon, as much as I think he has made terrible decisions in the past, is not going to let the football program suffer like this in perpetuity.  Wasn't it just last year where our offense was struggling and …
  • As much as I try to rationalize it, I can't believe this program has fallen as much as it has in less than a decade.  The University of Michigan has taken two coaching staffs which have proven themselves outside of Ann Arbor, and watched them fall f…
  • (Quote)  This whole season boils down to turnovers and meltdowns once we cross the 50.  If we can just figure those two things out...
  • (Quote) It's been two games.  We've killed our own drives with dumb penalties and negative yardage plays on first down.  We are strong quarterback play away from winning this conference.  Unfortunately, we aren't going to get it this year.     Let's…
  • Did you guys catch the shirt superfan was wearing yesterday?  The best part, they accidentally zoomed in on it on the jumbotron.   It said:  Mr. Brandon, Bo would slap the sh!t out of you.   My oh my.  
  • This team has outgained every team they've played this year.  Our largest issues are as follows: [ol][*]We can't finish drives - we get to the other team's 40 and self destruct[*]Turnovers (primarily interceptions)[*]DG never likes to throw the ball…
  • (Quote) Definitely a blemish on the history of Michigan football, and Yost doesn't come out looking good here.  Yost was actually known for being racist for most of his time in Ann Arbor (as I recollect in Bacon's class, his teams were almost alway…
  • (Quote) Gardner choked?  He was cold!  That is called death by the QB by committee.  What happened to both Denard and Devin in the game together?  Why are we running on third and short up the middle when time and time again we don't only get stoppe…
  • (Quote)   Again, these are per game statistics, not per drive statistics.  What matters is what you do with the ball when you have it, not how many times you have it during the game (once you are done with it, you happen to give it back to the other…
  • I'm really confused why we are comparing total offense under Rich Rod and total offense under Hoke.   Rich Rod ran a no huddle offense and didn't believe in time of possession.  Hoke, the opposite.  This may have some sort of impact on a statistic t…
  • Geez oh pete's!   Grow up people.  Michigan has the best team in the Big Ten and its just not enough for some people.  Denard went down with a freak nerve injury as we were driving to take a 10-7 lead at the half.  Our defense was dominant, we were …
  • (Quote) Really, is THAT why they play the games?  [8|]   Wisconsin looked terrible at the beginning of the year, but with Oregon State winning they became a bit of an unknown quantity.  The Michigan State- Wisconsin game provides a good benchmark t…
