Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.
first comment: "EVERY ATHLETE HAS ASPIRATIONS OF WINNING AND WE HAVE OUR FAVORITES BUT IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO OTHER STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS, TOO!"
stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
"This interview is not helping," said Robinson. "Now, who wants Cap'n Greg's Gravel Omelet Surprise? The surprise is the gravel!"
The key to understanding this coachspeak interview is this part of the article:
Two years later, he is coaching high school ball and doing radio, still hoping to get back into big-time football.
That means that when GERG says, "That was a difficult time, and I’m just trying to move on now," he really means, "I can't believe I let that stupid mother f***er make me run that bulls**t scheme that cost me my f***ing career. Where's my f***ing beaver?!?!?"
Dude, you were the guy running the defense. It went as directed by you. Who are you wishing for something to have changed?!?
In GERG's defense, the 3-3-5 was almost certainly not his idea.
He still exists? That episode seems so far in the past....
A nightmare from childhood...
Buried Memory with a stuffed beaver.
Best of luck to Scott Shafer at Syracuse.
who is this "Greg" you're referring to? i think you may have transposed some letters.
Abort, Retry, Fail?
I read this as Glenn Robinson and was extremely confused.
Me too - I'm glad to have moved on from the visual trauma of that name.
Just shows how non-existent he is to us now. Good to know we've begun to heal.
Full-on Decatur Clan. Whatever happens, GO BLUE!
Getting back in the NFL? After recently having coached long snappers and helped with the defense at a California high school?
By all accounts, he’s a decent man, but "Gergian" defenses in the NFL ranked 24th with the Denver Broncos in 2000, and then, with the Kansas City Chiefs, 23rd in 2001, 32nd in 2002 and 29th in 2003 when he last coached in the NFL.
His most-recent college defenses were ranked 57th (using Paul Pasqualoni’s players) in 2005, 107th in 2006, 111th in 2007 and 101st in 2008 at Syracuse; and 82nd in 2009 and 108th in 2010 at Michigan.
In those ten seasons, six of his defenses finished in the bottom 20% of all teams. The one "good" season out of those ten (2005) saw his defense ranked just barely in the top half of all NCAA FBS teams.
Wouldn't think that there are any NFL teams clamoring for his services. And yet, maybe one NFL team is thinking like this:
There was this press conference where a coach said "Vince Lombardi couldn't fix this Defense". One year later that D rank goes up 100 spots in rank. Feck you 3-3-5 ,feck you stuffed animals.
Fuck it, Dude, let's go bowling.
I'm glad the guy isn't bitter and bashing Michigan and Rich Rod and everyone else... which he could be doing. Its nice to see that he isn't making excuses or pointing fingers and is just saying "it was a tough situation and I'm looking ahead." He's not being a Kiffin about it at least.
...I can puncho yo buns...
must take about 7 hours.
Sometimes I think back to all the ways I tried to rationalize the GERG hire when it first happened. I can't believe what the mind can convince itself of when it wants so so bad to believe it.
Not that I loved Rich Rod less, but that I loved Michigan more.
"It’s pretty cool," Robinson said. "I’ve never coached high school before, but I've really enjoyed the experience. I'm driving 80 miles roundtrip on my own nickel, and I'm loving it."
Wow, sarcastic much, GERG?
