Football Display Case
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents

Corwin Brown, come on down!
Realistically, what are the chances that we can get Corwin Brown? I, personally, think he would be great for the program. We know his recruiting prowess. If RR hires a michigan man, it could send positive signals to the people who are doubtful of him.
I don't think Corwin is looking for a demotion, and I also don't think he'd help RichRod's image. Specifically, I heard rumblings that Corwin Brown isn't that popular among the old Michigan crowd. If true, then RichRod wouldn't be sending positive signals.
Frankly, I'll take a pass. I don't see it working out well. Personally, I think Corwin thinks too highly of himself to be a position coach. That's just me, though.
what has corwin brown shown that makes you think he's a good coach?
i only respect other superfans

I guess his recruiting is legendary or something. Personally I'd rather see if Jarrett Irons is available. Can that be a really bad stretch? I mean he loved UM enough to come back and get a masters degree in the Kinesiology department.
So if he's not a possibility, who is available as a replacement?

eenie meenie miney mo, catch a WR by his toe. if he scores six, let him go
This seems like a good move for both parties. Let's get Corwin to do some recruiting.
Thank ya Jesus

I just did and they are both declaring for the draft now...OH NO!
Yes, he lists decisiveness and the ability to quickly diagnose a play among his best attributes
Just like Carson Butler being an excellent blocker.
are you serious? if your kidding, then i am the most galable person ever
Facebook did tell me, however, that Donovan Warren is on his way to Miami for vacation. Oh, Facebook.

"Laundry list" for MMB's post:
2 omissions of capital letters
1 misspelled word
1 improper substitution of a homonym
1 omission of a punctuation mark
That works out to a fifty percent ratio of mistakes to words used in your post. I find it somewhat puzzling that someone who is posting as a member of the marching band would have that high of a ratio of mistakes to words used.
This begs a question:
Are you a drummer?
While we're correcting each others' errors--something that I applaud--you misused the phrase "begging a question."
He misused the statement "This begs a question:."
It just keeps getting better and better.
Ah, the first branch of the Rich Rodriguez coaching tree. A promotion, no less!
I do not like math
It was a good joke and good example of spin/sarcasm. I did want to point out that Butch Jones is from the CoachRod coaching tree and seems to be doing quite well.
My sentiments exactly.

Maybe GERG can coach all the LB's, as he did a good job with Brown and Roh. Can't say I'm disappointed by this news one bit.
Christ in me arise and dispel all the darkness.
In the 2010 class he's responsible for the Talbott brothers, Grimes, Murphy, and Torrian Wilson.
but thankfully he wouldn't have been the position coach for any of them so it shouldn't hurt us too much with any of them.
Be careful what you wish for. It's hard to really know where responsibility lies among the coaches and players for the terrible linebacker play. I believe it is mainly speculation that was pinning the blame on Hopson. Just as last year with Shafer, the problems are not always that simple. This may set our linebackers back because now they will have a new position coach Overall, however, I am happy about this move because it will allow Gerg to have input in choosing his own coach, which makes it more likely that the new coach will be compatible with his system.
hopson really isn't a LB coach, he had to coach there almost out of necessity.
i agree with point 2.
point 3 isn't accurate, hopson was assigned to kids that were flight risks and he got unlucky. it also didn't help that we went 3-9 the year he had 2 DTs commit then de-commit on signing day.
i wish hopson could've been the DBs coach, which is his specialty, but i'm glad he's gotten an opportunity to show what he can do.
The other problem with Hopson was that he didn't follow Rodriguez directly from WVU like the other coaches on staff meaning he was from a different system and philosophy.
Many questioned his hiring from the getgo because he was a decent coach down at Southern Miss, but he wasn't great. I definitely think this is for the better and perhaps it was inevitable that we get a different coach for his position.
is that he was on the Defensive side of the ball, and Shafer and Gerg didn't follow RR from WVU either. So now, we have a DC who has a different philosophy from the asst coaches he has and now will hopefully be able to bring in a LB coach he agrees with.
Now, I believe it's time to get a new DB coach.

You have a lot of nerve, going against a long-standing Michigan Tradition of scapegoating!
And besides, giving the guillotine to Shafer really proved to be the perfect tonic for what ailed UM football!
do you have to be a contrarian twit about literally every topic?

Not like there's anything else to do in Nebraska.
There's a post on another thread where I agreed with THREE things a guy said.
I do not think this staff needs Corwin Brown to help with recruiting. And I'm not so sure about his coaching abilities.
I may not exactly be "All IN" but dammit, I know this staff has its strengths, and I like 'em!
you agreed with 3 things a guy said. Whoopdydoodledo
with apologies to "Unforgiven" as this is slightly paraphrased..
English Bob (played by Richard Harris): Well, I'd heard that you'd fallen off your horse, drunk, of course, and that you broke your bloody neck.
Little Bill Daggett (played by Gene Hackman): I heard that one myself, Bob. Heck, I even thought I was dead, til I found out I was just in Nebraska.
We ARE Michigan....COME GET SOME!!!
I had such high hopes for you--and then you have to pilfer not just a bad joke, but an old one, and one that is completely not funny.
Why is it so windy in Oklahoma?
Because Nebraska sucks.
This day just keeps getting better.
I actually agree. Part of the reason I'm excited for next year, in addition to Forcier having an additional year under its belt, is that we will finally have some continuity from the previous year, especially on defense. While Jay Hopson might suck, there is still a possibility that even a slight change in coaches, especially in the area that struggled the most, could hurt us.
I personally doubt it though. I think that position coaches might be responsible for getting players to correctly play in the DC's defensive scheme, rather than their own. If Hopson is doing a shitty job of that and someone else can do it better without changing around fundamentals too much, then it shouldn't be too bad. Someone with more knowledge re: the matter is more than welcome to correct me.
Does this effect our chances with Grimes and Murphy?
I doubt it, since he wouldn't be their position coach.
and their D is really good? my head will explode i think
It's a festivus miracle!
