Future of Michigan football
I agree that patience is definitely needed. Coach Rod has shown improvement each year. That said, I think it is a bit of a straw man to talk about "entitled alums" and "wealthy" donors who support our football program. The idea that it is rich, ignorant old alumni who are ruining it for younger, more football intelligent alumni seems pretty silly.
Isn't there already another Dreisbach on this blog?
I almost traded in my car to get a delorean last spring. My life goal is to drive one and reach 88 mphs. The stainless steal body is amazing.
Obligatory "I like your enthusiasm but all of these posts make me want to blow my head off" post
Brandon is in control so there is nothing to worry about. He is a demigod.
This is a brand new thought.
Thanks to Carr, indeed! He didn't bring us a national championship, 4 Rose Bowl appearances, the greatest Game of its history. A SHAMBLES, I say.
That book has already been written!
..Lost 4 times in a row to OSU, Rich Rod 3 times in a row.
Rich Rod >> Carr?
Well, not quite ... but, the team was losing to Ohio State en route to anywhere between an 8 and 10 wins season and getting blown out in the Rose Bowl.
Admittedly, I'd give my firstborn child to be smelling the Rose Bowl right now [Not really, don't report me to social services], but I understand Martin's hire in that he wanted something drastically different. The stuffy "Michigan Man" meme was, well, not working out exactly like we wanted it.
Mehh. Yay apathy.
Who ya got?
A soft taco is just a tiny burrito that doesn't fold all the way over. A hard taco is a piece of crap that just crumbles into a million pieces after one bite so you end up scooping up seasoned ground beef with your bare hands while giving your girlfriend the evil eye so she doesn't run her mouth about how you are a gigantic slob.
I enjoy the texture and cruch of a taco. It is like spaghetti. No doubt sauce will splatter somewhere, but it is expected when you eat it.
How about Spaghetti Tacos?
Spaghetti is a messy blob, but it stays a messy blob from beginning to end. You know what you are getting. Also, you have soft, super absorbent garlic bread to sponge up any excess sauce.
A hard taco is just a pointless fucking charade. It comes out like this engineering marvel, then one bite later you just have a loose, messy pile of crumbs. I would rather just get a plate full of meat and toppings along with a bag of tortilla chips to scoop it all up with. Less mess, no lies.
Nonetheless, by advocating spaghetti in a tortilla you have confirmed your genius. We are on common ground, just in disagreement about the details.
It's all in the quality of the shell, and the technique you use. Myself, I'm a five star taco eater, love hardshell (not Taco Bell shite though) and true Mexican style softshell (steak, pork, chicken). Don't knock my tacos, mang.
I think the brittleness of the tco shell depends on cooking time. Also eating technique comes into play. I believe if your meat is hanging out the other end after a bite from the original end, you should turn the taco around and bite into it, thus saving a nasty taco mess.
pretty good. But who does that? It's damn-near unAmerican.
in so many ways--I applaud your good taste and ability to argue your position.
im a fan of a BurTaco. Having a soft shell taco inside a burrito is possibly the best creation ever.
Tacos, because you actually have a logical stopping point. Everyone's been stuck with that point where they ate 3/4 of a burrito but don't want to eat the rest; then you have to eat food you don't really want or save it to enjoy dehydrated, crusty beans later. With a taco, you just save a taco, and it'll still taste good later.
Driving=soft burrito; not driving=hard taco.
Hard taco's spill all over my clothes while driving - usually during a workweek lunch. Verrrrrry embarassing once I return to the office.

I'm running out of pictures to post in these threads explaining how much visually everyone hates you for posting it. Instead I give you this:
I don't visually hate him. Just literally and physically.
it's better if you play this song while looking at the picture:
Jaws 3-D is opening just up the block and my flying car is in the shop.
This post should have been entitled: "CC: Future of Michigan Football"
If you are unclear on this, please see my post from earlier today entitled, "Meta: Coaching Change Topics."
Thanks. I will not personally neg you for this, as the policy is still new and has yet to be accepted, but going forward, I think that it would be a good idea.
Your policy may not have been adopted yet but the Prohibition on Coaching Change Posts Act of 2010 has and the notice of infraction has been issued to the OP below.
I think that out two acts (mine is less of an act than a proposal at this point) work well together. To the extent that someone starts a topic that should be labeled as CC, but which is not, I will issue a call to neg that post into Bolivia. Your act can then come in and issue violations for individual posts.
Every post below the one below mine is pointless. No one is paying any attention.
this ever stop! Good Grief I can't look away!
I like right at the beginning when their momentum is kind of trending in different directions.
How do they stay contained? WHY do they stay contained? Maybe if I watch just a little longer...
This is getting ridiculous. I say we change every thread title to 'het did you see the basketball game last night?"
is my own. BAM.
That's how it's done, kids.
Why can't we as fans, and alums, give them the support that they deserve.
I don't know? ... Because some of us are trolls?
I've got an errand to run (sometimes you just need to take care of THINGS yourself ) ...oh... I have a car load of beer, naked women, cigars and a cannon FS100 48X advanced zoom.
You are a douche.
I guess the Fords bent to the media pressure when they fired Millen too.
Please be advised that you have violated the Prohibition on Coaching Change Opinions Act of 2010 (hereafter, the "Act"), profligated by Profitgoblue on November 30, 2010. In particular, you have violated Article . . . awww hell, I don't even know where to start!
Please be further advised that, pursuant to Article 3 of the Act, the minimum fine for this violation is the loss of one (1) MGoPoint, with the maximum to be determined by the MGoCommunity.
Please be further advised that, pursuant to Article 5 of the Act, if you dispute the application of the Act to your thread/post, you have twenty-four (24) hours to "file" a formal written appeal by replying to this post. All appeals will be considered on their merits as soon as practical, unless deemed to be frivolous by Profitgoblue in his sole discretion.
have you seen the Big 10 Team rankings for 2008, 2009, 2010? We have gotten progressively worse in defense and ST. Yes, Rich can coach offense but 2/3's of the phases of the game are deteriorating under his watch.
"And the program WAS a shambles, thanks to Carr"
I stopped reading at that point. I mean I can see the view of both keeping and firing RR, but to be so desperate and and in such denial that RR has done anything wrong as a coach to bust out that gem, I just can't see eye to eye with you.
Oh that smile...
If all the hand wringing over current coaches and potential future coaches has pushed us to porn, then I'm all in! Go Blue!
is that 2000 years for now, they will unbury the Big House and discover a colossal field where gladiators did battle and fat tourists from Mars will drift by on floating buses and take 4-D pictures wearing shirts that say "I went to Wolverinia and all I got was this lousy shirt" - but the shirt doesn't actually say it - it beams the message into your mind.
This thread would have been harmless were it not for the cheap shot at LC.
I think the program is in good hands with Rich Rodriguez and I honestly don't think there's a coach in the country that can do what he can offensively. With a medicore to decent defense I think he could take us to competing for a national championship again. At the same time, I think Harbaugh could take us to competing to national championships again as well. Not only that, he would unite the other whiny piss ass half of our fan base that hated Rich Rod before he even got to Ann Arbor. And while I'm not a subscriber to the "OMG HES NAT A MEESHEGANE MAN" mentality, I would like to see our fan base more united and not have half of it hoping for losses.If Rich Rod is fired after the bowl game I'd assume that's because we already have a commitment from Harbaugh. I think Rich Rod has one more year to put us in the top 10 at the end of the season, however the window for hiring Harbaugh probably won't last that long, so if Harbaugh was hired January 1, would I be upset? Absolutely. Would I still be optimistic about Michigan football and have Harbaugh's backing 100% Absolutely. Thoughts?
I do think this crapbag of a thread is worthy of two atom bombs.
Where to begin? The number of questionable assumptions this guy makes is remarkable.
1. That Brandon would fire RR largely in response to media pressure. This is laughable.
2. That a "five-year rebuilding program" was promised RR. Absolutely no one in December 2007 ever spoke such nonsense.
3. That the program was a "shambles" in December 2007. (I'd love someone to find anything written at that time that describes the program as such.)
4. That "Bo got five years" from Canham. Canham absolutely did not operate that way. To the very end, he was a year-to-year, handshake guy.
I'm sorry, OP, but your friend is pretty comically misinformed about this program if he believes this stuff.
but he only needed one to beat OSU and go to the Rose Bowl.
