Ron English won MAC Coach of the Year yesterday. He led Eastern Michigan to a 6-6 record this year after going 2-10 and 0-12 in the 2 previous years. Congrats to Ron, it's always nice to see a former Michigan coach do well.
Also I found this interesting:
English has been mentioned in recent days, in various publications, as a candidate for the vacant head coaching jobs at Arizona State, Washington State and Illinois.
I did not know that until now. It'd be great if he went to Illinois and was able to hand OSU a loss every now and then.
I know a lot of people are upset with Brandon for various reasons but I fully enjoyed this article. It provides great insight into what Brandon saw in Brady Hoke during the interview process.
Two very interesting articles on Rich Rodriguez's first 48 hours as the Arizona head coach:
The first is the play-by-play:
The second is a summary:
Sounds like both RR and Arizona learned from the mistakes highlighted in 3&O.
I wish him all the best.
First off, I know this belongs in the other thread. But on behalf of every student at CC, I apologize if in fact this letter was written by a CC student. We are all devastated at school, and about at least 400 students went to see the Dean today to express their displeasure with the letter. Cass Tech is a great institution and had the better football team and we respect that. We just don't like the negative view we are getting from the media and from Michigan. We know that this doesn't represent CC and we know that it's alot better there than what people paint us out to be. We just hope this thing dies down and we can actually focus on our classes and final exams instead of getting interviewed by Channel 4 in school and taking a ton of criticism when we go out in public with any CC gear on. As students, we should not have to put up with this crap.
If the Mods feel this is offtopic, please feel free to delete but I just wanted everyone to know what we as the students had to say
