Harbaugh's records at Stanford:
Hey guess what? If Michigan can find a way to beat Illinois and Purdue, and then win a bowl game, they'll be 8-5 in RR's 3rd year.
I've tried to reach everyone jumping off the bandwagon this week with moderate success. How about this angle? Do you really want the Freep to feel they won? The Ticket? Drew Sharp? ESPN? etc... Even if you have more doubt than ever don't you feel a little vindication today now that the final report has come out that you stuck with him? RR got dragged thru the shit for really next to nothing. I'm willing to take that chance just to give him a chance to look M. Rosenberg in the eye after a Buckeye win and know he has to right a positive article. Believe me you'll enjoy it even more next year. Hold the rope!!!
According to The Associated Press, the NCAA will announce on Thursday that Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez did not fail to promote an atmosphere of compliance at the school.
“I think Coach Robinson is real good,” he said. “He was somebody who really tried to teach you the game. ‘These are why we’re calling these plays or these blitzes now.’”
Graham said his concerns were purely schematic.
“You’ve got to have four down linemen. You’ve got to,” he said. “Or five. You’ve got to stop them holes, and you got to get to the quarterback. You got to trust the cornerbacks are going to do their job.”
The Detroit News is reporting that we will have three years of probation when the report comes out this afternoon. Does this season count as the first year of probation?
Adam Rittenberg has a piece out in which he asks for suggestions on naming the Big Ten divisions. As Jim Delany mentions in this Chicago Tribune piece, they want to avoid names that apply to one or two schools.
The challenge, Big Ten officials say, comes from a reluctance to use either geography or the names of legendary conference coaches or athletes that would represent just two schools.
Anyone out there have any good suggestions? I thought of two: naming one division after Amos Alonzo Stagg (the legendary U. Chicago coach, when Chicago was a leading power in the Big Ten); and naming the divisions after two of the Great Lakes, esp. Lakes Michigan and Erie, since they border the most Big Ten states.
UPDATE: Rittenberg has posted his reader feedback. A number of our suggestions made it into his list, including Stagg/Berwanger, Corn/Cars, and Black/Blue.
