FYI Brian Cook on WTKA right now.
Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
And the fantastic Linda is on right now as well...
Momma said there'd be callers like this
Linda's not going off on GERG is she?
No, she was just complaining that we suck at recruiting because, for the last 4-5 years we "don't have any good RBs or WRs." yeah....about that
But, it's true. We don't. We're relying on a point guard in the slot. We just don't seem to recruit good skill guys any more.
You are looking at things from a very very small window. If you include the past 4-5 years, players such as Manningham, Avant and Arrington come to mind at WR. Hart, Minor and Brown are pretty good RBs and there is a whole host of players behind them in the depth chart that look pretty good.
Although our depth at WR sucks right now, I don't think its time for, "OMG Recruiting has been terrible for the past 5 years."
I think Robinson is married.
Oops, you wrote "going off." My mistake.
He's obviously dealing with a shallow depth chart. I mean, how long are we going to keep trotting out these LBs and Safeties?
But, I do have a question for Brian.
This is going to be glorious
And since I'm pretty sure she reads this site as she just essentially quoted Brian's "mama said there'd be days like this" line; what up Linda.
I still watch that Pigskin Classic win over UVA on my VCR. I had my doubts about you - being from South Bend and all - but you proved me wrong!
Dreisbach, that guy had mad skillzzzzzzz
...he'd rather have Brian Kelly as coach...? Man, was this weekend THAT bad??
I was telling people that Brian Kelly was the next big thing back when he was at Grand Valley. I even called Stoney and Wojo about it, multiple times...
Pleeeaazzzzz get your CV in order. We are in dire need of your prescient wisdom
I've already submitted my standard application package that includes the video of me at the Alamo Bowl in '05 - which should answer any and all questions about my dedication - as well as several audio clips of my greatest hits.
AND YOU ARE A FREQUENT CALLER ON LOCAL SPORTS TALK RADIO?
I bow down to your superior fandom! I am truly in awe of your dedication
He said if you could GO BACK IN TIME--knowing what we know now and knew then--Brian Kelly might have been the better choice due to player defections, etc.
Man, just try to listen just a lil bit more.
when/if he leaves Cinci he is gonna get the same treatment R Rod got especially if he comes into the big ten....
He will get the well he was in the Big East argument thrown at him if he is not instantly successful where ever he goes!
...would've received less support from the "Michigan Men" and also the fan base than RichRod has received.
1. Why do you say that, Steve Sharik?
2. Do you have some sort of diagram or any other visual reference to help explain your conclusion?
I don't usually do this, Steve, but since you're probably busy, I'm gonna hang up and listen.
The only thing I can think of off the top of my head (and I'm not Steve, but I'm offering what I can from the little I know about Kelly) is that there was a situation several years back in which Kelly apparently came close to or crossed a line with what was described as a "racially sensitive" statement. I'm pretty sure there was a topic here about it, and it wasn't a big deal at all (sounded like a misunderstanding), but it was something that would've been an enormous deal if he was hired at Michigan.
I was just perusing the explanation of the scoring system. I can't wait to post my first diary soon!
Do you still keep in touch with Stoney?
Well, I talk with him on his mlive blog and watch him every Sunday on WXYZ, but it's just not the same. I'll bet he never thought I'd outlast him in radio.
I heard he's guest hosting for Sam Webb on WTKA later this week.
that are not very favorable on this show today. It sounded like he said if things don't get better soon he might want to start looking for someone else. I'm not quoting him at all, but what he said sounded very shocking about how the lustre is wearing off. All this came after the time-machine comments. Did anyone else hear these comments?
Generally, Brian has been more negative about RR, but basically he is just saying that hey the honeymoon is over and we expect you to start performing. He is by no means calling for RR's head. In fact, he has been saying we are where we expected us to be this year and if RR doesn't start to perform after his third year, he will start to be on the hot seat during his 4th year.
