So, like, maybe, a singe daily "CC-Open Thread"?
So, like, maybe, a singe daily "CC-Open Thread"?
You beat me to it!
You deserve every face palm and atomic bomb you get. It's not just that some of us don't want to discuss, it's that the people who do, have had 476 threads to do so. Why make another one?
I seriously want to know WHY MUST WE HAVE ANOTHER THREAD ON SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN COVERED 500 TIMES.
Other things we don't need threads about:
-Jerome Bettis being from Detroit
-Brett Favre being a gunslinger
-Tim Tebow being Christian
I honestly don't understand all the snide comments. Maybe he wanted to discuss this situation and give his thoughts. Yes, there have been threads about it in the past. That doesn't mean people don't have new thoughts about the issue and/or want to discuss it. And don't tell me that you want him to go post in a thread that is 4 days old.
Also, he marked the thread "CC", which was invented today I know, but why would you actively click on it, and then post this in there? This isn't only directed at you, but all the comments trivalizing and degrading the OP for posting his thoughts. Seriously, don't read it or comment in it if it bothers you sooooo much.
Because we have to set some sort of standard. We do not need a thread by every MGOmember regarding their opinion on the matter. We should have one thread about the entire process. But no, there's like 200 special ed students on here and they all start their own thread and any real news gets shuffled away.
So you think the standard we should set is having every poster post videos of bombs and pictures of half naked women when there is a topic of interest that has been discussed before? How about we set the standard of just ignoring the thread if you don't like it?
Also, maybe you really think these posters are "special ed students", which I highly doubt, but fine. But please don't try to insult someone by calling them that or calling them the R-word. Its really not cool, and shows your lack of maturity and sensitivity.
His opinion is the same as about twenty other opinions I have read here recently.
This thread has been covered many times. But, it comes from passion. This is not a malicious post by a so called "special ed student". When it comes to the University and the football program specifically, I hope we all have the same passion. This black hole of not knowing is not good for an apprehensive fan base. Brandon's silence has only amplified it by 1000 times. I for one will live with either scenario. I like most fans and supporters just want this empty feeling to end, Go Blue!
I used protection.
Did you come up with this all by yourself?
Fire Brandon, make it a clean sweep.
if RR tears it up in the bowl game and dominates the opposition you think DB would fire him. I believe DB and think he will evaluate the staff at seasons end. Im not saying RR job is 100% safe i just think DB is going to due a fair and through evaluation of all coaches.
What if Michigan destroys the opposing bowl team and Stanford loses their bowl game by 28 pts? What if they both get blown out? I guess DB just hasn't decided yet. But I have to think that he's definitely not pleased and some major changes need to be made on the defensive side of the ball.
can harbaugh still be considered 'sexy' if someone bombs him in a BCS game?
Not only have there been literally 5+ threads about this exact topic over the past 2 days, but you also missed the possibility that DB is waiting for the results of the WVU NCAA investigation.
Also, what if he doesn't want to be a buzz-kill right before the holidays?
What if he wants to wait on RR's fate til he makes his New Year's resolution?
These threads are getting ridiculous.
What I don't get is that if you people don't want to discuss it why read it? Just move along. I don't read them all and don't bitch when a new one arises. But also when people that hate the 500 threads started on the same topic why do they have to all write the same comments on omg we already have this topic. No shit that's already been said.
Again move along if it doesn't interest you
is that the OP is suitably notified (chastened?) and thinks twice before posting moldy leftovers in the future.
A dim hope, but the motivation behind my post.
Just because you didn't find it intersting doesn't mean everyone I in your boat. It's a sports blog and I found it interesting. Great posts in the comments area get lost and overlook all the time. A new post about the same topic just ensures people who want to read it will. If you don't want to that's fine just go to the next post. Don't clog up his post by posting Things like that.
posts like his clog up the MGoBoard.
Kind of a vicious cycle, isn't it?
Very. sigh... No one wins
The opposite is also true. By constantly posting the same tired arguments time after time after time, this blog becomes clogged and loses value. The only person starting a new thread about the same thing posted in another thread is the same person who thinks their opinion is so important it needs to be front and center. News flash: I don't care about an unsubstantiated opinion. This blog is superior because of it's reliability. I want facts, not opinion. And if people persist on starting new threads seeped in their own unsupported personal opinion I will continue to respond with worthless drivel and pos bang all those that do the same. Call it an MGoUprising, if you will.
(which is usually a bad idea) and because of the wait I feel like either Brandon truly hasn't decided yet (he wants to see the bowl game or get more info), or he has decided to fire RR. I just can't possibly see why he would want to wait if he knows he will retain RR. Anyone have anything that can shine some light on this?
Check the 700 other threads started in the past 3 days. They might have something.
just put a gun in my mouth
We were getting married in ten minutes. My brothers and I were to stand at the altar and wait for my soon-to-be wife to come waltzing down the isle.
On our way from the waiting area to the altar, my youngest brother turns and says to me,
"Fuck it, let's just go. Just get in the car and drive."
He had the most serious look on his face. I love him for that look. I considered it. Honestly. But, alas, his look soon turned to a wry smile and I knew he wasn't serious.
So we continued on to the altar, where I met my bride, and we got hitched.
Now... I live in hell, and she and I talk about the same goddamned thing every day.
I dunno why I just thought about that. Huh.
As much as I hate to use tired, overused internet acronymns, LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLLOLOLOLO
So, hiring Harbaugh is a long term plan, but hiring RR was what? A temporary bridge to Harbaugh? RR was hired as a long term plan but people are unwilling to even give him the duration of his contract. Seems quite hypocritical to me.
I mean, I would agree with you, but maybe Brandon was never on board with the original hire.
Wasn't Brandon on the board that approved the hiring?
In my oh so insignificant opinion, hiring Harbaugh is a poor long term plan. He will coach in the NFL at some point. Who is a better long term canidate? I have no clue. Honestly if we fire RR and Harbaugh doesn't take the job (I think people are taking it for granted he would be offered and take it) then I don't know where you turn. Who else would be looking to jump ship? Maybe Chris Petersen? I guess he would be my second choice. I just don't see the hot prospects in average jobs that I saw the last time around. I mean you had Brian Kelly, RR, Greg Schiano, and even Harbaugh at that point(hindsight). Do you go after a Mike Gundy? I doubt he would take it. He has all the money in the world down there right now. I just don't see solid alternatives. If there is a firing, DB has to have harbaugh locked the fuck up.
I believe he is forty-something.
In my oh so insignificant opinion, hiring Harbaugh is a poor long term plan. He will coach in the NFL at some point.
Because college coaches routinely make successful transitions to NFL coaching positions?
Good call on using the "CC" designator, but facepalms and atomic bombs are coming
I agree, to an extent, that DB should announce it sooner if he intends to keep RR, but at least he's consistent.
I have to assume DB knows what he's doing, and this timetable is a result of a long thought out process. I believe he's addressed the concern over recruiting and such.
but I think I liked it better when it was written by Henning in the Det News.
I'd check your crystal ball's manufacturer's warranty.
balls, but that's only because of that freak, farm equipment accident..... DAMN YOU JOHN DEERE.....
the decision has been made and it was made back a couple weeks ago... I remember when dallas crawford and sammy watkins was on a visit and david brandon told them that coach rod will be the coach at michigan for a long time... i think watkins or crawford mention this to tom when he does his follow up on recruits visits. Im not sure how safe greg is but coach rod will still be the coach next year. This team is about to take off it just needs some changes on defense and this team is a top ten team.

Is this for real? lol. I thought you added the CC amendment?
Thats GOLD Jerry, GOLD.
Poop nuts and balls. Also, boobs.
I forget who the other one is. I like the cut of your jib, though.
I'd suggest smoke signals as a better way of informing brandon he's interested in the job.
I am not sure if we do talk about it here or in one of the other hundred threads. I honestly just couldn't keep up because there are so many. As for the OP's thoughts, I don't think they are completely out there. I am actually a Coach Rod supporter and I hope he comes back. But, as many have said, I think DB has had enough time to evaluate the program. I feel as Bo did with Gary that a coach should get at least 4 years. Let coach Rod ride with the horses he brought for next year. Whether that is to keep GERG, fine so be it.
Problem I have with the OP's assertion about Stanford getting to play in their bowl game and for our guys to play in our bowl game. Although, I think that is a great thought and our players deserve it. I would like to have our situation resolved sooner rather than later for the sake of recruiting and continuity for the future. I don't want to sound harsh, but if Harbaugh is going to be the coach, he should come in now. Sorry Stanford, I don't really care if you get riled up. Michigan is much more important. OK, I have given my rant and I trust DB has a bigger picture in mind than I can have.
He is secretly working for tUOS, and he knows this is the best way to torpedo Michigan's chances, not just for recruiting this season, but for the coming years.
Check that... Brandon hates America.
That would be a direct renege on the timetable he set at the start of the season.
... that "had we performed better, we wouldn't be talking about this now". Maybe he would have endorsed RR. To me he is just waiting to see how Michigan performs in the bowl game, after the 15 practices. 15 practices should be enough to re-emphasize fundamentals, healing of hurt players, game plan for the oponent, etc. I would expect a performance like the UConn game. If after all that preparation, we still look sloppy, then I guess RR will be let go.
