Well folks, we have our first work of PR. Hollywood is releasing the guaranteed blockbuster film titled The Beaver. Mel Gibson has the lead role of GERG Robinson.
From the Daily Telegraph:
Mel Gibson has had to endure questions about his stability following a string of controversies. Now he is preparing to relaunch his career by playing a man who befriends a hand-puppet beaver after suffering a breakdown.
Coincidence? Conspiracy? GERG's hair finally landed him stardom?
Enjoy the trailer, I played it three times in a row in utter shock and disbelief of the great clips that will eventually make it to this board:
I hate to dissapoint all of you Ron English Fans, HOWEVA, Mr. English will be returning to coach the EMich Hurons, doh, Eagles next fall:
"Absolutely, he'll be back," Gragg said. "I like the direction the program is going. Ron is one of the most resilient people I know."
A word of framing up front, this thread (or at least my intent with this thread) is based on the presumption that Rich Rodriguez will be retained as the Head Coach at Michigan but that there will be changes made to his coaching staff. That being said, I think most of us agree that Greg Robinson is not long for Schembechler Hall.
Assuming that the firing of Gerg is a given at this point, when does the ax fall? Will we see it come next week in the immediate aftermath of the regular season? Do we try to bring in a new coordinator in time for the bowl practices/game? Or will we see a temporary DC in the bowl game with the new guy not really arriving until later in the winter?
Over a week ago, I suggested Pete Rekstis come up from Kent State to lead our defense next year. http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/if-not-gerg-then-who#comment-761264 (stats included in that post).
Well, as many of you know Kent State's head coach is resigning after this season (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/football/ncaa/wires/11/21/2060.ap.fbc.kent.st.coach.0224/index.html).
As an avid fan of good offenses and strong defenses, I believe we should make a run at this guy at the end of the season to be our D-Coordinator.
I just finished changing the GERG Wikipedia entry, which as of 12:30AM Sunday began:
"Greg Robinson (born October 9, 1951 in Los Angeles, California) is a joke of a defensive coordinator for Michigan."
Real classy, guys.
Honestly, it's been a blast having GERG around. The man has beautiful hair and that stuffed wolverine he pulled out today was pretty wild. Regarding both GERG and the defense, I haven't seen any signs of quitting this year where lesser men would have given up.
Having said that...
I think it's time we all join together in looking forward to a new defensive coordinator. This is in no way a direct commentary on the performance versus Wisconsin, or whether or not GERG deserves all/majority blame. When things go this bad, heads will roll, and I believe he is un-retainable. There is no benefit to axing him before the season is over, and I hope he uses these last two games to push the defense to be its absolute best.
