further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
I know someone was asking the other day about a Team 132 shirt. This site seems to be offering one, and a few other Michigan related T-Shirts...
I know Brian makes money off of tshirts and I support that, but saw these and figured the board might be interested. I think most are unique from what Brian and the store offers.
Texas A&M may be stealing MSU's DC, Narduzzi. Kevin Sumlin has been authorized to spend some big time $$ on a DC and Narduzzi is apparently at the top of his list.
I'll be happy if Narduzzi gets the job. Good for A&M, bad for MSU.
On a sirius radio program, they just had a long talk about UM. I guess Eddie George and his cohost (?) were just frying Hoke for saying that Michigan never left. Some caller called to defend the statement. And Eddie G wouldn't even respond - being a total arrogant douche - and the cohost lambasted him, saying something about how UM is completely irrelevant since the BCS era, and still is after beating a mediocre VT team. They were again ripping on Hoke for saying this and saying that UM is nowhere near back (though he did say we were on the fast track to being where we want to be). I got pissed and decided I wouldn't call and tell them this, but I thought I would share it with you:
Michigan never left because Michigan is still (and has been) one of the greatest universities in the world - academically and financially. The amount of scholarship and advancement in multiple areas we produce is rivalled only by other top tier universities - even in the Ivy League. The integrity of the university is equal to best. Though we are a public university, we are consistently labeled a top school. Bang for your buck, we may not be rivaled by anyone. A university is worth much more than football team. And in every area other than football, we never left. I would even argue we never left on the football field - if you consider fanbase, stadium, ticket sales, uniforms (except for the away UTL), national brand, etc.
I think this is what Hoke meant. And those guys are stupid to limit this statement to wins and losses on the football field.
That is all. Go Blue.
Are there any thoughts on why we seemed to only play for a field goal on the last drive? Personally I was frustrated by that. I thought all year we seemed to play for TDs and on the last drive we were obviously OK settling for a field goal. I thought this was opposite of what Brady had done all year. I thought he had been aggressive all year. It also made me nervous because VT seemed to throw the ball all over our D. I thought they would march it right down the field like they did. Any thoughts?
For all of you who are Neg-ing me I'm not talking about overtime. I'm talking about the last drive of regulation. And for the rest of you who think I'm second guessing Hoke, I'm not. I was simply asking for opinions about how that call was diff then most of what Borges/Brady did all season. So don't get you panties in a bunch in defense of our fearless leader. I love HOKE just as much as any Michigan fan. I actually know him and his family so I'm not tearing him down just talking about how I thought it was a little out of character. Relax...We Won !!! And I love being sugar bowl champs just as much as any Michigan fan also.
Are there any prospects playing in the Under Armour game that could choose Michigan tonight?
