well that's just, like, your opinion, man
Anyone else notice during the BTN pregame that Michigan is sporting different road jerseys? The maize piping is now goes across the back of the jersey, and is now less visible. Another tribute to former Bigten champions?
Lots of rumblings from premium sites and some of my somewhat-legitimate sources in AA.
Looks like he has either left the team or been dismissed.
Dude was an impressive athlete, tis a shame we weren't able to keep him happy enough and/or put him in the right position to succeed.
Just remember, those who stay...
I'm sure many of you are aware of and have visited hokepoints.tumblr.com (if you haven't, do so). I recently shared it with my friend and fellow Michigan fan Celia, who then made this wonderful bit of hilarity and posted it to her Tumblr. Thought I would pass it along to the board.
The rhino one is my personal favorite. Hoke ubber alles.
Per ESPN, a brief excerpt:
Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio has received a new contract designed to keep him a "Spartan for life."
The new deal maintains a five-year rollover clause for Dantonio, who is in his fifth year as coach and last season guided Michigan State to a team-record 11 victories and a share of the Big Ten title for the first time in 20 years. Dantonio's base salary increases from $618,000 to $650,000, and his new contract includes performance incentives such as a $100,000 bonus for winning the Big Ten championship game.

My post is not intended as a slam on MANBALL or the current coaching staff, of whom I'm currently a big fan. If Hoke et al. want to move toward a Wisconsinesque road-grader offense that gets the job done, I'll be completely behind the idea.
But, I think the parallels between RichRod's offensive philosophy and what's described in the article are interesting. If his ideas were that lousy, would they be used at the highest level of football?
