I don't know why someone negged you as your approach appears to me to be the right way to do things. One needs to move on and support the next head of state, as it were.
Where I partially disagree, is with respect to giving someone their whole term as coach. There are times when it is obvious that things simply won't work out. The removed coach is contractually guaranteed he/she won't be harmed financially.
11-1... from your lips to God's ears, but with our D, and having to play OSU and Nebraska next year and no guarantees about special teams. Let's hope you are right.
Any you are right about your assessment of the University of Michigan. A couple of times in the last few years when we sucked on the field and I was feeling down I started thinking about Michigan academics and the culture of the school, the great educations I and my sons received there, and I generally feel better.
