I don't think they changed Les at all actually
national champs baby

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?
Why would Brandon come home rather than go to Dallas? Could this finally be it? Could Les Miles be aboard AirPIzza1?

Was there a guy named Allen on it?
I hear he is a pretty cool brother in law and he's in the know.
I'm kind of a big deal in Bolivia.

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB/AP) - LSU head coach Les Miles has met with the University of Michigan's athletic director about the coaching job there.
9 Sports has learned that Miles and UM's Dave Brandon met Monday evening at Miles' field house condo off Nicholson Drive.
Brandon and two other Michigan representatives left the meeting and were taken to Baton Rouge Metro Airport in a Cadillac Escalade, where they were seen boarding Brandon's Domino's Pizza plane at 7:40 p.m. The plane left moments later.
The jet, on loan to Brandon, landed in Baton Rouge Monday afternoon fueling speculation that he was on his way to a meeting with Miles.
Miles said at noon Monday that no one from Michigan had yet contacted him directly and he did not know when such a meeting with his alma mater might take place.
He made the comments immediately following the news conference in which junior cornerback Patrick Peterson announced he will enter the NFL Draft. Miles stated he met with LSU underclassmen Monday morning and told them he expects to remain the coach at LSU.
"I am extremely happy here," Miles added.
When asked earlier about Michigan's opening, Miles has only said he loves being the coach of LSU. He has not yet promised to return next season, although his current players have said he has given them the impression he plans to be back.
Of course, Miles is a "Michigan Man." He was an offensive lineman for the Wolverines during college and twice served as an assistant coach during the 80s and 90s. He is widely considered a top candidate to fill the head coaching vacancy at Michigan.
A former LSU athletic director said he doesn't think Miles would take the job with Michigan. He has four kids and is already making close to $4 million.
His LSU contract pays him $3.75 million per year, runs through 2014 and includes an annual one-year roll-over at the discretion of the athletic director that could extend the deal to 2015.
The contract also would make him among the three highest-paid college coaches should he win a second national title at LSU. Miles is 62-17 with a national championship in six years at LSU.
Rich Rodriguez last week was fired as Michigan coach with a 15-22 mark in three seasons.
We have the pizza jet back in AA but did the UM plane leave BR???
You're working your way north of Bolivia. Too bad I can't give you any help during the current lockdown.

As long as a signed contract went back with him, I'm not too concerned with whether Les was on it.
Exactly. Les is speaking (interviewing coordinators) in Dallas tomorrow (maybe). Note how the plane avoids Ohio airspace.
that is epic, it blatently avoids ohio airspace!
UM football is my heroine
Is it wrong that I see that as being a message that we have a new coach and Brandon is making a point? Or I have just crossed the line between paranoid and let's shoot up an Arizona safeway when a congresswoman is speaking?
/Looks at calendar, sees that it isn't 2014 yet.
Yep. WAY too soon.
They no longer call me Bisbiño
Yeah, and I knew it even as I posted it. My bad. Apologies.
When a situation is that effed up, sometimes all you can do is try to laugh. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Way too soon and in poor taste. Consider yourself fortunate that there is no negbomb available or I'm sure you'd be toast.
Brandon had to know that people would deploy flight tracker to good effect on the internets. This is a big FU to Ohio.
not just "douchey" MGoBlog user, but now TRUSTED MGoBlog user
not funny at all
Edit: Beat to it
Really poor form.
I'm apparently not the only one who is so far down the rabbit-hole that the idea of such a subtle signal seems to make some kind of dimented sense...
Those idiots would probably try shooting it down with burning couches flung from catapults or potato guns.
Fuck it, Dude, let's go bowling.
not all of us are idiots, just the classless tOSU fans. don't lump us all together merely b/c we live w/in the same political boundary!
Fuck Urban Meyer!
"The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena...."
What is with all the excitement? I realize no one wants Hoke, but has everyone forgotten about Patterson and Gruden? RR should NOT have been fired in order to bring in Les Miles (even if he's not the absolute worst alternative).
If it is LM, this confirms that Brandon had NO plan going into this.
Who cares? I just want a coach. I was in RR's corner the whole way as well but that does not mean I get to be a dick about who the next coach is that we hire. I just want to see us get back to winning and beating OSU again. Who ever DB announces has my support and hope he has yours too. We can't miss this time and the entire Michigan fan base and administration need to pull together. GO BLUE or GO HOME
I concur with Dennis. Miles isn't my favourite candidate but it's about to be January 11th and we have no coach, which is inexcusable IMO. And considering there's not really anything to support that Patterson or Gruden are realistic candidates, I'll welcome Miles as the new HC if it is the case.
So did the OTL segment have no impact on your feelings about LM?
I'm not a fan of Miles. I've said that all along. But the writing's on the wall that he's coming and there hasn't been anything to suggest that any better candidates have been offered/want the job.
And between Miles and Hoke, I'd take Miles in a second, recruiting issues or not.
....if he got a "Yes" from Les, when you connect that to the player meeting tomorrow.
Why come back to tell the team you haven't found a coach yet? And why come back when all the coaches are in Dallas if you don't have a coach yet?
I guess you could think that he went down to Baton Rouge to pay his respects to Les Miles and is heading back to Ann arbor to introduce the coach to the players tomorrow. Someone who might have flown in from San Diego.

Just posing an alternate theory. Devil's advocate and all that but not one I want to believe.
Someone from Ft. Worth?
"I didn't do it. Nobody saw me do it. You can't prove anything." B. Simpson
Maybe because the coach he wants to interview next is in Glendale, AZ and is busy tonight?
The more likely scneario is that they ran into some major hurdle during the final negotiation and Brandon has to get back to A2 to discuss things with his boss.
If this was a done deal, there would be leaks all over the place by now.
May be DB had to come back to get Mary Sue's approval. It will be interesting to see if the Michigan jet heads out tomorrow to unknown destinations!
expect the best
Before people get carried away remember Brandon's words "it is an honor to represent Michigan and discuss our football program's needs and opportunities with a variety of impressive candidates and/or people who can offer valuable advice and input."
He may just be seeking counsel from Miles.
Please let that mean that we signed Miles up. The alternative bears no contemplation and my liver's hurting from this week already...
Pouring another scotch as I speak....What's a little cirrhosis anyway...
I don't need no stinkin liver! It's bourbon and beer here.
It's evil and must be punished
as for me, I'm out of Scapa, so Glenlivet it is...
Anybody staking out at Willow Run tonight?
Wheeee. This is fun.
please please please let us have a coach!
everyone freak out now.
Wasnt it stated that Les Miles is giving a speech in Dallas tomorrow at the coaches convention? If it's a done deal he's flying to Ann Arbor tomorrow after his prior engagement in Dallas. Announcement would come Wednesday @ 1230 presser...
The only thing worse than an ignorant Buckeye fan? A delusional Penn State fan.
Brandon forgot his toothbrush. He will be heading out to San Diego once he picks it up.
