Sources indicate from tigerbait.com that Miles staying at LSU.....
Guess we shoulda hired Hoke 6 weeks ago and been in a lot better shape!!! I just might start the "fire Dave Brandon" site tonight.....
Peppers at 10, which seems low.
Please because somebody MOAR awesome is lined up?
Is this any more concrete than anything we've heard all weekend?
No, its not. Its something Tigerbait is reporting on their premium site or premium message board from what I understand. The thread title should be changed to prevent further head explosions...
I still think that in a time like this you need at least 2000 points in order to start a thread.
I agree 100%
You might think otherwise based on my point total, but I agree.
no way! watching this plane crash is better than Joaquin Phoenix in I'm Still Here
Come on down!!!
...likee some dat Gruden.
I was the first to say Jon Gruden
I think Jon Gruden's mother was the first to say "Jon Gruden."
he grew up a Michigan fan...it's supposedly his dream job. the question is can we afford him?
We're everyone's "dream job" and yet here we are without a coach. Funny how that happens.
Not supposedly. I read two of his books and he stated in both of them that his dream job would be to coach at the University of Michigan. Now its up to him and DB to make this dream become a reality.
His "dream" job was to coach ND where his father coached. After his father, and the staff on which he served, was fired from ND he decided that he wanted to grow up to be the Head Coach at Michigan so that he could whip-up on ND every year to avenge his fathers' firing. Even went so far as to put it in the media guide at Dayton when he played there.
A few coaching jobs and a Lombardi trophy later he has conceded that his "dream" college job is Notre Dame.
That said he's an NFL guy and he doesn't dream about coaching college any more than Nick Saban dreams about coaching Detroit/Redford/Novi Catholic Central.
Damn, do I feel like a loser.
I cant in a million years see Miles turning us down, which means we must have turned him down! and theres only one coach who i think we would do that for. WOooOO!
Loving the optimism!
I dig your optimism - I am 100% with you.
Oh, dear God no!
A nice dream, but more realistically I think we will be welcoming Brady Bacala back to the Michigan Familia.
Of all the pictures of Bobby you could find, you had to find one from that scene. : (
PurpleStuff is gunna jiz his keyboard!
Skeet, skeet, skeet!
Three and out?
I like what you did there.
It's a rumor, it must be true!
"Tigerbait" is a bit too close to "Tigerbeat" for my liking.
Thus, the natural conclusion for me is to continue to mine for my LSU football news from "Tiger Droppings."
Tiger Droppings is the most poorly named website this side of clownpenis.fart
I tried checking it out but that doesn't seem to exist.......
SNL joke... and a good one!
my new signature line.
is a post of epic proportions. Fine job, fine job indeed.
sign in just to +1 you my friend, good work. plus your avatar and user name both kick ass, one literally and the other stereophonically.
thats is epic.
bring on Jon Gruden!!!
that Jon Gruden is committed to ESPN.
So this would leave Patterson and Hoke. Personally, I am thinking Hoke is the best bet for our new coach.
I heard he's only a soft commit to ESPN, and they're known for oversigning.
God I love full circle jokes
I just realized that this post alone nearly dug you out of the hole. Well done sir, well done.
Shit, until I read the responses and re-read the original I thought the same. It was funnier when I thought it said full circle jerks.
Better than full circle jerks.
Didn't Patterson just sign an extension with TCU?
My Bo avatar is nearly done growing...the cool part is its almost 10 feet tall too. A sure bet to land the job.
Cyborg-coach Big Bo today unveiled his secret weapon for the American combat football leagues, a Magic Floating Block M that shoots LASERS...
HOKE HOKE HOKE HOKE HOKE
Brady Hoke's record is 47-50, if he was the next HC we'd be in the same spot we are now in 4 years.
This can't be true, Les Miles is coming home to Michigan, I'm sure of it.
I am not surprised!!!!
Gonna give up that easy? You must be new. These type of threads have been popping up about every 2 hours for the last week.
Just haven't been posting much until this week. Yeah, I am a little tired of the rollercoaster!
Aren't we all, I know we would like to know, but if they told us they would have to kill us!!!!!!
Yeah personal favorite was the Harbough signs deal in principle with the dolphins the same day he actually signed with the niners. (still stings a little) I'm not going to believe anything until it's signed or Tom says its true
This is why I need to get the hell away from my computer. Every hour there is conflicting reports, err, rumors about this damn coaching search. DB, please, for my health, lift the shroud of secrecy and give us a clue as to what the f$#@ is going on!
According to rumorbait.com
according to jailbait.com
And the tooth fairy is on special teams.
At this point I don't think I'll believe anything until the team comes running out of the tunnel next fall.
That's when Bo walks out onto the field to the fight song, a-la Weekend at Bernies, and throws everyone into hysteria.
I can't seem to find said source: can you link it?
I trust David Brandon until he gives me reason not to. So far his process hasn't instilled much faith in me, but it's not done. I'm in "I'll just hang up and listen." mode until a coach is hired and we see what happens.
er....has he not given you reason to?
I just want to see this whole thing play out before I decide. I was pretty frustrated during the B1G realignment stuff before it all got sorted out too.
KEEP HOKE ALIVE
Had to be said twice.
Been following the LSU boards and by their own admission, tigerbait.com is good for nothing.
Where version of Magnus?
tigerbait.com is exactly our version of thewolverine.com
I've been on all of the LSU boards and nobody has this. This is another bogus unknown source report
to HELLO: BETTY WHITE in 3.....2......1......
Link or I don't believe it
Update: Kirk Herbie is the "sources" according to tigerbait. Therefore, count on a presser tomorrow AM announcing Les is back.
That just made my stomach hurt. I feel like if Herbie is the source it will hit ESPN.
"Should I Stay Or Should I Go?"
+1 for Combat Rock reference. I wonder if Straight to Hell might not be a better choice though.
Neg me to Bolivion.....trying to link....I do hope they r wrong but I just don't know who to believe anymore!! Trying not to blow up board just trying to pass on info....I'll be less dramatic next time. Trying to call nephew who goes to LSU n works in AD....keeping his phone off tho....guess he didn't like his Xmas list....
When Brandon announces it, it will be official. How many times are you going to scurry around because a member of the sporting media felt a need to feel impotent. About 30 seconds after Brandon announces it, it will be posted here, generally with attribution, 'cause that's how we roll. Take a deep breath.
2:1 says that Brian posts in here before it leaves Dave Brandon's lips. Just like the firing, this will not be an Oscar surprise. Unless the new hire has no friends, family or agent.
Does this mean we don't have a shot at Marisa Tomei as our next coach?
He's just sitting at him computer watching the amount of clicks he's getting with a creepy smile and a quiet, sinister laugh, his hands in front of his face twittling his fingers and an obligatory Mr. Burns impersonation
This isn't even close to true. This made the rounds on tigerdroppings this afternoon. Fact is everything is still up in the air.
Need a hug?
OP: Can you please update thread title to clarify this is a completely unsubstantiated rumor? Maybe like "Rumor: ..."? There will be many premature head asplosions by just reading the thread title.
Fire Dave Brandon ........start the site if true, and if we end up with brady fuckin hoke.
But if we end up with Gruden.......never mind.
The med student who graduates at the bottom of his class?
Incorrect. A Dentist.
I was thinking more like a chiropractor.
I was being sarcastic similar in how everyone was on the Fire Rodriguez Bandwagon, after Rich made a few questionable but certainly not "fireable" decisions.
And take it easy I'm a second year med student .....The Michigan Med School speaks for itself.
So maybe this is like when Cheney was tapped to conduct a search for a VP candidate, and then vetted some candidates, and wound up with... Cheney. The difference here being that while Cheney, regardless of how you feel about him, was a qualified politician, whereas our AD is like Don Quixote. Tilting at windmills.
is reporting that Simon Lebon is showing interest in the UM coaching job.
Hungry Like the Wolf!
What about Bieber?
Michigan hasn't offered. Just like last time. None of the Miles speculation should have any credibility until he's actually sitting in an office at Schembechler Hall after our last go around.
One Rivals guy is believable and the others aren't? Last time he had agreed to take the job according to ESPN and it turned out nobody talked to him.
Rivals and Scout don't know shit, especially this time around with Brandon running a tighter ship, and the only names they can think of are Miles and Hoke so that is all they try to recycle until we find out what DB is actually doing.
LSU hasn't said anything since their official comments, which was "Michigan still hasn't asked to speak with Miles". Until there is some announcement I won't believe anything. And if they do ask, I fully expect LSU to deny them the opportunity.
before settling on Hoke?
Hoke means at least 2 more years of losing. Denard and Tate would almost certainly be out, and if Gardner leaves it would be 2007 all over again. Even if Gardner doesn't leave he's still a first year QB. Does anyone have any confidence at all that Hoke and upgrade the talent on defense, or that he can bring in a strong DC who can teach fundamentals?
This is really starting to get ugly.
Well, at least you're giving him a chance...
Has more defense in his background than offense, also has some special teams. Defensive Line Coach for Michigan from 1995-2005, part of that stint was associate head coach as well. He was also named coach of the year recently.
I have read several news articles not blogs that he runs a wide spread offense and is adaptable. He has played our rivalrys, and knows what Michigan is all about when it comes to football.
guys it's not the end of the world.If we have to hire Brady Hoke thats alright.It might take a couple years but we will be back,i hope.GO BLUE!!!
just fired a coach after three years. The standard has been set, whoever comes in here knows they have to get things going quickly.
It is going to be another less than fun year or two no matter who the new coach is....its called a transition period. Unfortunately it is not going to turn around overnight as we all hope it will. That being said, Hoke is pretty far down on my wishlist too.
This comment instills no confidence or happiness in me.
Let's get this over with. Hire Hoke......Fire Brandon.
I pushed it but nothing happened!!1!!11! should I be worried?!?!?
Oh trust me, something bad happened. Wait until you turn off your computer, you will have a smudge there to clean, all because you couldn't resist the urge to push big red buttons and/or panic!
Gus Malzahn. Where is the drumbeat for this guy? He knows offense, he knows the game. His schemes fit with the guys already there. Get the D tuned up, and there ya go.
This was on Tiger Dropping.com: "Miles has called a team meeting" this is all BS nobody knows anythig.
All this ranting means that still don't have a coach right ?....LOL...!
I wouldn't want Hoke, is that it probably will mean the end of Denard in the winged helmet.
Yes Hoke sucks for several reasons. Not keeping Denard isn't one of them. Denard is a great player with a very real chance to be a Heisman winner before he graduates, but you don't make a decision that affects the program for a decade or more based on a player you have for two years.
re:his wife not wanting to move... I think the kids are in highschool right now and don't want to move because of that. This has the ring of something that could be true to me.
Per Tiger Droppings (lol every time), the oldest daughter is a senior and in boarding school. Don't see that as an obstacle of anything.
I think that would be pretty lame if true. Kids shouldn't have veto power over their father. If Miles wants to come here, the kids shouldn't get in the way; at least this wouldn't happen in any family I've every known.
Don't have kids, eh?

Here is a bunch of baseless speculation from someone totally outside the process. Keep clicking and fork over that cash to get inside THE FORT!!!
Please, can we talk to that guy. At the very least his hire would buy 5 solid years before we have to do this again.
Pinkle did a good job with toledo and is doing a good job with missouri. He always seemed like a classy guy and I think he would be a good hire.
No baggage, no ethics issues. The only question is he's 58 and we seem to be older than 50 adverse at this point.
Runs a spread offense - pass oriented though, but made good use of Brad Smith.
Don't worry, whoever started this post doesn't know what the hell they've looked up. LSU fans on tigerdroppings have spotted Les Miles meeting with two unidentified men at Canes as we speek and the UofM jet is still at the airport in Banton Rouge. Go Miles. Hoke is a joke. Should have just kept Richard
At least those "Who Dat" Girls are happy.
Please change the title and description.
This is a rumor.
I think this is all a charade while DB let's people get more and more used to the guy he already has an agreement in principle with: Brady Hoke.
And since Brandon indicated that he wants to bring Michigan coach's pay in line with the rest does this mean Brady Joke is going to be making $5,000,000 per year? Only in America!
Quit stirring up crap when you have no credible source to fall back on,...you tool.
I will be awaiting your apology when Les says "No Blue".....
Only 4 postings,... LOL...!!! douche.
wake me up when this is all over.
I hope so.
If we hire Miles, I won't know whether to be excited or not...
Looks like a lot of wasted aviation fuel going back and forth to Baton Rouge.
Yeah umm bullshit. I don't believe it
Someone was saying that the 5.2mil offered for JH was for him AND his staff.
FWIW, over at tigerdroppings they are generally defending Miles on the oversigning matter. There was also a link to this story:
At this point I'm fine with Miles. In fact I hope he is it, and he won't be allowed to do that there. I even think there is a very reasonable argument he was doing what everyone did in the SEC. But that article was a load of self-justifying bullshit.
Definitely tracking 3 planes now.
That NetJets plane (I think wolves90 found this) that went from Dallas to Baton Rouge to Savannah is now in Westchester, NY.
I would bet this plane brought Brandon or someone involved with the UM coaching search to Baton Rouge last night. NYC is where the search firm is based and Lloyd Carr lives at Hilton Head and the Michigan plane has been to both Hilton Head and Westchester early and often this week.
I used to fly for NetJets. They have about 500 aircraft. Don't read into anything beyond where that aircraft goes after Westchester County. It will most likely have someone else on it after that since the fleet is so large and they have thousands of owners.
The post was from the LSU boards. Nothing to put any stock in it. Just found it fitting in with all the stalking of planes both fan bases have been doing lately.
A tidbit: LSU football coach Les Miles will appear with Patrick Peterson at his NFL announcement on Monday | NOLA.com
Per Angelique Chengelis on Twitter. Take it FWIW, and to me, that's nothing.
lol isn't this the same Rivals.com who's Michigan website is convinced Miles is coming here? I'm staying off of the internet until I turn on ESPN one morning and see that we've hired someone.
Blow it up JHack please blow it up!
Whoever started this thread...I checked tigerbeat.com and it says nothing about Les Miles staying at LSU. Although it does say that Justin Bieber was spotted at the Willow Run airport...
Les Miles will be announced as the new Michigan HC on Monday.
Fuck, if this is true.
I was just beginning to like the latest mgobanner.
Start the Fire Dave Brandon Site Now
We can't meet with Miles until tomorrow as it is due to his contract. He gave the AD his 24hr notice this afternoon. Tomorrow is the day when DB can work his magic, if the money is the same or close Les will come home.
LSU spokesman responds to email I sent says LSU AD Joe Alleva still hasn't been contacted by UM.He spoke to AD 2 hours ago
That was sent out around 9:30 tonight. Would seem to contradict theory that Les Miles gave notice this afternoon.
Can we all agree that this is a pretty non-serious report?
This is probably bullshit. I believe it is more likely that he gave LSU the nod that he was going to meet with UM on Monday, and if the reports that he would not say no if offered are true, something will be leaked late Monday or on Tuesday about Miles to Michigan (hopefully not by Herbstreit).
Why does it seem like we're always close to landing Miles in the evening, and then we come close to losing him in the afternoon? Well, now that it's the evening, I guess the pendulum swings back our way. Brandon should interview him at the stroke of midnight.
Les is a terrible coach. We are screwed.
Les is a terrible coach. We are screwed.
So terrible that he only wins 78.5% of his games.
