chance of bowl: 13.6%
Wojo has a great article in Detnews on John Belein and spending a day with him.
Wojo's latest article makes a pretty bold statement that I didn't expect to see from him before the osu game.
I'm interested to see the response, since his writing is usually well-taken around here.
Wojo, as usual brings the sanity in his column today on the state of Michigan's program and the defensive development:
Again, Wojo actually uses sourced quotes (not "my peeps tell me", or "Michigan power brokers who refuse to go on record say") and backs up his opinions.
- yes, personnel problems exist
- yes, Greg Robinson is doing a poor job, but changing DC's midseason isn't a magic wand to cure the problems
- RR believes he's buying time to restock the defense with an offense that's winning games at Oregon and Auburn
- Ultimately, if RR can't get to a bowl game after 12 opportunities to win one game over two years to get bowl eligible, then he deserves to be fired. (and you know what, putting it that way, I agree)
Agree or disagree, it's always nice to read Wojo who outside of funny picks columns on Fridays, generally looks at an issue rationally and lays out his arguments, staying away from red herrings, ad hominems, and "I'm smarter than the coach" type writing. Good job, Fat Man.
Today's Wojo column in the Detroit News is about the MSU - ND game.

However, he couldn't resist a little, Little Brother trash talking. To wit:
I like it when Wojo stokes up the fires of resentment in East Lansing. No better place, I always say.Michigan State's Kirk Cousins has been billed as, possibly, the best quarterback in the Big Ten who actually ties his shoelaces. Always eager to keep up with their brotherly neighbors, the Spartans sent word to the national media Cousins often runs around with his chinstrap unbuckled.
