any one know what thats about?
is the new DC hired?
well that's just, like, your opinion, man
know what what's about?
I think it has something to do with one's bowels.
That's all I know
Which DC candidate is hanging around?
Is there any chance at a Co-DC type system?
Like Both Hopson and, lets say, Heater as Co-DC's?
No because that would really hurt defensive recruiting. No kid is going to risk their football livelihood with a couple of coaches not trusted by their own school. Two coordinators mean that both are under qualified.
But can't divulge until he's named. The pick will surprise people. Some will love it and some will hate it.
Yeah, it's going to be a polarizing decision if it's the guy who's in AA right now.
i think that really depends on which guy. is it the first guy ? or the second ? thats just my opinion though.
I'm pretty sure it has been reported that Herrmann lives up here, or has a daughter up here. I doubt he is even being considered.
It's NOT Herrmann, I guarantee that.
This has been a low key search. Very, uh, hush hush. Robinson, Nix, Herrmann, Heater, and Hopson have all been thrown out there, but no one really knows what is going on.
I'm sorry. But, why post that?
Could also be Shaky Jake. Is he still alive?
He's shaking in the ground.
Shake died last year.
No he is not...
That actually really bums me out. The man had two good strings on that guitar but he played the shit out of them.
Sorry for hijacking the thread, but it deserved it.
I'm not sure if I like him or not. Nothing is official, it seems like speculation based on the "fact" that he was in AA today.
yes mr robinson
Scout posts more rumors and speculation. Rivals is the better source for info, imo.
are killing me.
be JH. I will simply scream if he's name the next DC.
Are people really that cheap that they can't pay $10/month for Scout's recruiting services? People will blow through $10 on a meal or a few beers as it's nothing, yet paying $10/month is like a way too extravagant expense. This needs to end; people need to quit taking Scout/Rivals articles and posting a thread hoping to fish out free info. Go to another board if you want to do this.
Those who can't afford that $!0 are unwilling to give up their bar/beer money. See, recruiting site and porn doesn't go as well together as beer and porn.
This thread's actually been pretty good at talking around the info.
they sell information that will be available for free a few days later. if no one leaks it here, i'm perfectly willing to take a few days in order to not be jerked around by halfwits looking to make a buck. their real value is in recruiting rankings, but i bet you could make your own equally good proxy based on offer sheets.
And yet without them, there would be nobody to collect their offer sheets...
I'd rather have Scott Schafer or Jeff Casteel. Robinson's body of work does not thrill me.
the accuracy of which is not exactly clear? if all i do is wait, Tom and Brian bring it for free. i have a good time when i read Tom and Brian. i have a shitty time picking through those crap sites. and if it didn't exist, i'd go back to my life before i knew which recruits were kind of a big deal.
I'm just saying, people pay for a service or a product. People like Brian and Tom rely, at least partly, on information from those sites to do their jobs. Without those sites, perhaps nobody pays attention to recruiting. Without recruiting information, I bet fewer people would pay attention to this blog. Etc. Etc.
I just think it's kind of odd that people would bash the products that fuel 50% or more of the discussion on this blog. Sure, they're not 100% correct all the time, but we wouldn't be nearly as informed without them.
i'd subscribe to this blog.
If those sites didn't exist, this blog would not be what it is. Therefore, you might not subscribe to this blog, because everyone on here would be less informed and all Brian would have to base his blog on is the mainstream media, his inside sources, and his own eyes/brain.
Like it or not, those sites have greatly expanded the knowledge of what used to be average fans.
The question is when do they think this will be announced? I want to know so we can get this done already. I am starting to wonder if RR is waiting until right before signing day so players don't leave since it is too late for them to switch.
The blog on Scout doesn't nail anything down. Just assumes that since GR was in town that he is now at the top of the list. Who really knows.
GR was in town to thank LC in finding his replacement at Syracuse?
Could somebody inform us what's up with this? I have a Rivals account, but not Scout. Other than people hinting that Greg Robinson is hanging around Ann Arbor, I have no idea what is being talked about or if that's the extent of it.
they don't want to discuss anything that they learned on those sites because they paid 10 dollars to learn first
What's this picture tell you:
he has halitosis.
That orange and blue has got to be the ugliest uniform on ever, ever, in all of history ever
in 2004, were pretty good. Texas allowed around 3.18 y/c and only gave up 114 y/g passing and allowed 19.7 ppg. His resume' includes three Rose Bowls and 2 Super Bowls. How good were the Broncos after he left? How good were the Patriots after the whale left? GR meant more to Denver than tubby meant to NE.
Possibly a good hire. Better than JH from a media spin standpoint and middle-of-the-road enough to keep the political factions quiet.
Question is, does RR want to bank his HC future on the guy to bombed at Syracuse. Maybe GR is a much better DC than HC.
Was it GR leaving, or John Elway retiring and TD only playing like 7 games over the next three seasons before retiring that ended the Broncos run?
Good question. Obviously Griese > Elway so it was probably G-Rob leaving.
The Broncos' D only gave up two touchdowns in the '98 playoffs, one after a fumble on the 1 yd. line, and one in the fourth qtr. of the Super Bowl after the game was decided. So it might not have been all Elway. And we can discuss him now because Sam Webb from GoBlueWolverine put his name out on the airways of Ann Arbor this morning.
Why do I have the feeling that Tyrone Willingham will be the next DC? Is it his Michigan ties? NFL experience? Obvious relegation to a non-head coaching role?
So you guys are saying that Rex Ryan will not be the next DC at Uof M? That can't be true because Tim Tebow came to me last night in a dream and told me the great prophecy about the lion and the lamb laying down in the field was an allegory for RR and RR sharing the same sideline. So you guys are saying that that isn't true? Are you guys saying that Tebow is a liar?...
I won't believe it! You guys are the LIARS! ALL OF YOU!!
Brian, ban the bunch of them!
Ban them so we can bask in the glory of the knowledge of Tebow being right
The new DC will be Tony Dungy. And he is bringing the Tampa two to the big house. Dare to dream.
buying a house in barton hills?
Can someone tell me who is GR?
and got an eff'ed up answer...
He's a little young, but I think the forkball blitz will be effective. We might need to bring in another DC late in the game though if he gets tired.
The former Syracuse coach. I am not sure if he is the subject of the Scout article but Sam Webb was on WTKA this morning talking as if he was the guy.
On the one hand, he's been a part of a number of very good teams. I like that he was well-respected enough to get a head coaching job at a decent school, and that he was well-liked enough to keep that job for four years despite a dismal performance. He also has the kind of name recognition that gets people excited (I know my first instinct, without looking at any of his teams' stats, was "heh, cool.").
On the other hand, his team's defense over the last few years has been abysmal. If he was really such a defensive coordinator, I would have expected more. Even if he gave some control over to his own DC at 'Cuse, one would expect him to have stepped in when he saw that things weren't working. One possibility is that he wasn't able to recruit the kind of talent needed to hang in the Big East, but lack of recruiting ability is just another indictment.
If his 'Cuse team had been terrible, but had a great defense, I would probably be thrilled with the hire. Instead, I'm not really sure what to think.
Maybe the guy is Rod Marineliesque. Good at just being able to specialize in a certain thing but dysfunctional at the head spot.
That is all.
A guy at my office used to cover MSU and U-M sports for the Oakland Press and is usually a good source for letting me know WHEN something's going to happen (since they call his old comrades) but not WHAT.
He's a State fan (which is like a prerequisite for being a sportswriter around the tri-county area).
Anyway, he said he'd come by and let me know if gets wind of anything that would interest me. I would expect I'd hear from him if there was a presser being called to announce a DC.
First bowel movements and now getting wind.
