DAYS UNTIL JONAS MOUTON FINDS A WAY TO GET THE BALL IN HIS HANDS!
<meta: Unfortunately, the MGoFamily has decided on spending Christmas in Canada. This limits my access to the interweb considerably. Saturday's and Sunday's posts will NOT be at midnight, but I will try as best I can to get them up later in the day. Midnight posts will restart on Monday. Merry Christmas to the MGoCommunity. Stay safe, stay warm, get ready to kick some bulldog @$$; next week is ours.>

"Desmond Howard believes Gator Bowl outcome could affect Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez's job status"
“Unfortunately, the patience or tolerance level is becoming like the pros. They anticipate you do it sooner. … Look at Rich, he’s shown improvement with the offense at Michigan. But they have to improve on defense or the improvements won’t matter. I think it takes four years for a system and personnel to match.”
Remember when the idea of moving The Game to the start of the Big Ten season floated around and everyone got mad? Well in light of recent events I would say Brandon knew exactly what he was doing in trying to move the timing of The Game.
I now have complete faith in the results of his coaching evaluation that may or may not have been been completed weeks ago. He can see into the future.
I wanted to create a post that could operate as the first in a series of of entries that highlighted those commit/transfer decisions that had significant career/financial ramifications. This is not intended to be a "LOL you didn't go to UM and now you SUXORZ" but, rather, the beginning of a log of those who fans wanted to suit up in maize and blue and who chose less green pastures.
It will be updated, with a write-up, based upon comment suggestions. As such, I really encourage people to write-in so these become Community pieces and not a GB piece.
Because the flashiest always goes first
By his own admission, Pryor likely missed out on the chance to make tangible history when he chose to go tOSU. While he has been to a bowl game every year, it was Denard, not Pryor, who broke the NCAA record books this season. Meanwhile, back at the Columbus ranch, TP (T Profit for short) has put up decent numbers in an offense that for all intents and purposes limits him and forces him to utilize his weakest abilities (pocket passing).
Minor occurrences have taken place featuring Pryor in bars or flashing jewelry/cars that have failed to allow allegations by Clarett to disappear regarding OSU recruitment/player care. What's more, maturity issues on the field and off have raised questions about his leadership abilities at a school that, for all intents and purposes, does not have a historical encyclopedia of "field generals" (with some exceptions, such as Laurinaitis, Spielman, etc.)
Slowly languishing in Tressel ball over three years, Pryor has failed to live up to perhaps unfairly tall expectations. Now that a garage sale of fail has led to him being suspended for the first games, the Buckeye passer appears set to either go into the NFL draft with an unheralded college season in which he was not named to the All Big Ten team (and perhaps sit around for a year during labor talks) or play a shortened schedule with OSU sitting potentially at 3-2 before he comes off the bench. In short: has failed to become the next/best Vince Young.
For anyone who didnt listened to recruiting roundup this morning, Sam Webb stated that he believes that Michigan currently leads for Frost and Flowers and if they picked today, both would pick Michigan. He also stated that it is his opinion that it is down between us and UNC for Tabb's services. Just a little more good news for the holidays.
