I see Cam Cameron's name a lot, but why would he leave LSU?
I did not make this headline up
I see Cam Cameron's name a lot, but why would he leave LSU?
if he does it wont be for Michigan it will be back to the nfl
Same here. He and Les are friends, and he has that position already at LSU (who is winning more than Michigan right now). He really doesn't have any ties to Michigan above "he coached here before" which he currently has with LSU, only more recently.
out of watching his play calling tonight is that it wasn't much the second half.
Dana Holgorson. At least when his offense looks dysfunctional we can blame the fact that he's high, drunk, or both.
They go hard on every beat. Don't talk to me about how they ain't real.
You are going to hire a defensive coach as the OC?
Well the offensive coach who is currently our OC caused us to gain negative yards on the ground so...can't be worse?
just put up 41 on Oklahoma.
Borges can be allowed to design the plays....we can use his playbook. However, he's not allowed to call plays or coach.
Hire him as a "play designer"...he can just sit behind a desk and think of plays to run. However, he gets NO control over what play is called.
you think the plays have been designed well?
The queen my dishes kid
I have zero coaching experience but I swear that I will not keep calling shit that isn't working.
I'm realfootballfan and I support this message.
I coordinate the crap out of elementary school class holiday parties. srsly. They don't even ask other Moms.
SO made me laugh.
I think CFB is the biggest sport when it comes to coaching. In baseball, they are called managers for a reason because they don;t have to do much. You have the talent you have and they play with the manager making very minor decisions. In basketball, you also pretty much have the players you have and if you don't have good players there isn't a HOF coach in the history of the league that can do much about it. CBB is much more coach oriented but still basically a game of who has the best players to suit a system.
In CFB, a HC can literally change a team in one or two seasons. We hired (and we all knew this from the get go if you knew anything about Hoke) a game managing HC. He basically leaves the offensive and defensive coaches to their own devices. Hence no headset (for those always wondering). To me, that is the exact environment I think an offensive coach or coaches would want to walk into. They're not coming in under a guy like Hoke and being told "this is what we're doing, go do it". This staff was told "we want to be this kind of team, make it happen but I realize we have major rebuilding to do so do what you gotta do".
Mattison has done his job. With what he inherited, he immediately moved our defense 100 spots in the right direction and while not perfect or looking pretty he has us in the top 20 in the country in most categories. We aren't losing because of GMatt and his defense of True FR-RS Sophmores.
Offense is clearly losing these games and on almost every level. The guy he told to "do what ya gotta do until we can be what we want to be" has been an absolute failure outside of a few games. Molk has proven to be more important than Lewan & Schofield combined as we haven't had so much as a below average OL since Molk graduated and those two were as young as the guys we have in the middle now. That is where Funk comes in. He has two NFL OTs but two true Freshman and a walk-on in the middle. Yet, they were highly touted. One supposedly COULD and SHOULD have played last year but this year cannot seem to get the concept of getting in a defenders way. How many times have we watched a single player, often a NOBODY, beat his OL (or two) and then the HB to get to Devin?
People don't like to read long posts so I'll end by saying that Hoke isn't going anywhere soon. His seat is not even warm. We knew we hired a game manager/recruiter/guy to make UM feel like UM again instead of the bad man from WV. The issue is whether he sees that, at the least, Borges is not working out. In fact, he is costing this team games by "doing what he's gotta do until we can be what we want to be". Only problem is that the talent won't keep coming if we keep him, keep losing and can't become what we want to be.
it's completely different than what he's currently running. I think Hoke told him to do MANBALL offense. Hoke to offense is what RR to defense.
Borges coaches with Hoke at SDSU. Is the ghost of Bo haunting Hoke telling him to run MANBALL?
and rightfully as I'm drunk. I think Hoke told him to do whatever to win now but have elements of manball for show future learning seeing how they inherited a team of smurfs. problem being that Borges brain esplodid and now wtf is reality. Hoke is here for a while and sadly I think Borges is, too. Eventually it will all come together or in 2 years we have a new staff. I used to think 3 but I think we need to be MICHIGAN by the 15 season or all are fine after, coordinator changes or not.
Your idea of coaching in other sports is flawed. Big time
I don't know much about either, but those teams offenses have probably out-performed michigan's in the B1G. Now I'm sad, but I'd like to hear what folks think of them.
An offensive co-ordinator who knows football instead of one who looks like a beach ball
Former Michigan offensive lineman Harold Goodwin is the offensive line/ offensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals. I'd like to see them make a run at him.
I would love to get Loeffler, he's a proven QB coach and aligns more with manball than Borges ever will.
No he has done nothing as an OC to deserve the job.
Temple? That was pretty impressive.
Auburn + VT maybe not so much, though.
he was at Temple for one season and mostly maintained the level of success Al Golden had established there. Everything else he's done has been terrible.
Tebow's worst season
I'm willing to take the job for a quarter of what Al's making, and I run the number 1 offense according to NCAA Football 14.
Very creative former HC who is now an O-Line coach. Brilliantly mixes Manball and gap schemes.
I would be in favor of this. He did a great job with the Raiders and was unjustifiably fired.
Mike Bobo from Georgia
I say we hire a group of monkeys to pick from all the plays in a hat. I guaruntee we rush for more yards.
How can we implement the play calling monkeys?
Why do we continually have to deal with coaching problems? Is finding a decent coaching staff really that hard? When OSU goes through coaching changes they don't seem to skip a beat.
How did the year post-Tressel and pre-Meyer go? Good coaching matters.
They didn't hire anyone, they were forced to fire Tressell. They had one bad year and have not lost a game since. If we went 6-6 in 2008 and didn't lose a game after that I'd take that any day!
It is really that hard.
If they could pull him from the west coast....what about Jeff Tedford? He has done well with QB's and if he could change this offense into somethiing positive he could get back on his feet as a HC.
It would probably only be a 2 or 3 yr fix but at worst the job would be appealing to someone else.
