further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
If RR leaves, what happens to this blog?
my mind was the A Bomb. Then I remembered how annoying they were getting haha. In all seriousness, I can't think of a better answer to sum up how this blog will react.
the H Bomb? Cmon people, try something new.
The atomic bomb is so yesterday. It's all about space, bitches, space.
Kinda surprised nobody has done this sooner.
lot of people changing their screen names I think
then I'm screwed...
You speak from experience. I remember the Charlie Weis era when your screen name was Shake Down the Blubber.
Why would anyone ever give up a screen name like "Shake down the blubber"?
Hell as an ND fan I would have kept that.
Great to see you again my friend! Looks like we're sharing the same sinking vessel this year aye.
I wouldn't say sinking, more like we took on water but its being pumped out pretty quickly. Hopefully the same happens to you guys, or its quick and relatively painless
I would say that is won't be quick and it will be painful. Too much emotional energy already invested in the process regardless of the outcome. It seems like the OSU game was a long time ago and its only been a week. Still trying to get that dagger out of my heart.
Ah, the lot of the fan.
Irish, where you have been all season?
yeah it might be too late for quick and painless
I got a new job, I was doing a lot of moving, been nice to get back into football. Wish it hadn't taken this long though, missed a lot
i wanted to ask if you were Charlie Weis but then i saw you mentioned doing a lot of moving and that cleared it all up
He still might be... "Got a new job"... Weis got hired in KC... Things that make you go hmmm.
I wouldn't say that beating a vastly overrated Utah, not going 0-2 against the service academies, and needing Ronald Johnson to drop a pass right in the numbers to beat USC's worst team in 9 years puts Notre Dame in any tier above where Michigan is at.......
I can think of worse way to finish a season than to win on the road against your biggest rival, especially when ND's QB scored all of ND's and USC's points in the game. First year head coach improves over ND's record from last year with a tougher schedule and 2 first year starters at QB, one of which is a true freshman. Not to mention doing it while missing #1 RB, #1 QB #2 WR, #3 WR, #1 DT and #1 ILB. I mean ND could of lost on the road against its biggest rival.
ND's playing its best football at the end of the year, its been at least 8 years since I could say that. Kelly's changes are showing some promise
As for what tier ND is on, sagarin puts ND at 29th in the country, UM comes in at 46th
I think Kelly is a great coach and will do good things for ND. To be honest, I'm glad. I like when ND and OSU are good, as long as they always lose to Michigan. I would like them each to have only one loss every year, to us.
You sure you don't want to put extra emphasis on "biggest rival "one more time since USC is most certainly on the same level as OSU....
You guys are Returning To Glory?
I'm not so sure. We still have a Coach Shiano on here.
I will follow RR to the next Blog. And it won't hold a candle to this one, but his offense will be a helluva lot more fun to watch... I am sad.
requires that he sell the blog.
There will be blood.
Edit: Sorry, I'm still at this murder trial. Been a long week,
Milkshakes will be had?
At this point, I'd rather have a banana cognac, but I will gladly drink all of your milkshakes.

Daniel Day Lewis is a fucking genious.
Holy shit your avatar.
I don't get the avatar choice.
Regardless, it's nasty.
The blog will convert to the next team. MGoCanes. I kid. I will support the next coach. I will follow RR too though amd wish him the best.
All that said. I hope he is back next year.
Probably like when "Urkel" turns into "Ur'kel" or vice versa
I will be bummed, but I will continue to support Michigan Football.
Boobs are nice.
I hope McFarlin does not come back.
I won't lie. I really like having Coach Rodriguez around, and will have a difficult time adjusting to having a new coach (particularly Coach Harbaugh) if this happens.
I second this.
Even more after reading the comments from the article found here:
I guess Brian will have to change the blog's name to... mgoblog.
And the format will have to change. I suspect that in the new format, the blog will largely cover... University of Michigan athletics, with a particular focus on football, basketball, and hockey.
Yeah, but there will be at least one major change. I suspect there will be no discussion of the World Cup for the next three years.
Then support the next coach
Well, first, all of the Mods will get replaced with the new regime. Brian will be hired somewhere, but probably not an as elite site... maybe HornedFrog.com or ECPirates.com. If he is lucky he'll be hired by MizzoBlack.com or TA&MAggie.com, but rumor has it they have their eye on someone more "Texas like", you know, a real Texan and not a transplant.
Some of us members will transfer to other sites, but, most will stay. It will take a while for some of us to learn whether there is a place on the depth chart. Either way, expect a few people to end up typing OPs for CUBuffs.com and a few MAC sites.
