Pref. walk-on LB from Saline.
He hasn't won a single game as head coach, but I love this guy
I see the future. I see history. I see Victors.
What do you see?
From The Daily.
The University’s chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu was suspended and permanently closed by the fraternity’s international board of directors following its participation in a January ski trip that resulted in property damages valued at more than $250,000.
UCLA's Assistant Head Coach and top recruiter, Adrian Klemm, has been suspended pending investigation for a series of unnamed recruiting violations. Refraining from speculation, but interesting in light of their most recent signing day class.
I hope I'm not being too picky here but there seems be a general negative tone here on the blog that I don't think is useful. I don't want to pick an internet fight and I hope this brings up constructive discussion.
I love Hoke for a number of reasons but I think we all can agree that Hoke failed in relative expectations with on the field performance, wins and losses, etc. and it's OK to discuss those facts, but the constant bashing of Hoke and yearning for glory days is a bit overdone lately. I didn't frequent this blog after the RR years but can't we restrain ourselves from lobbing so many negative comments towards people who tried and cared about representing UM well? Note that I'm not advocating that we eliminate talking about our history and discussing facts or even opinions about those facts and that's what makes this blog so great.
I'm not sure if you folks have played on athletic teams that despite good effort, failed to play up to internal and external expectations, or if you've played for a coach you loved but things didn't work out, or if you personally have played poorly relative to personal expectations, but by and large, that is what happened under the RR and Hoke years. Some of my favorite players have come from this era of relative underperformance on the field. That recognition doesn't come from Ws and Ls but from how they conduct themselves as humans. I applaud Vincent Smith's recent efforts in the community and I hope it succeeds mightily. There other examples just like Vincent. It seems though that for some folks here, the Ws and Ls are preeminent when it comes to assigning value to a human being. Isn't sports more than Ws and Ls? Is it merely my team from my area is better than your team from your area?
I hope Harbaugh brings us back to where we once were but more than that, I hope he does it the right way with the right players. I don't want to be Alabama. I want to be Michigan. That's more than tribalism but it stands for something of integrity. I can desire victories, acknowledge that Hoke And RR failed in some areas, and yet not lob needless criticisms towards each of them and perhaps indirectly to the players that played under them. I am very thankful for this blog and what it represents, let's have more of it.
