Makes sense to me.
in town for free camps
Makes sense to me.
Les to be introduced in the next 48 hours.
MIles is a top notch coach, a sweet recruiter, and his players love him. People think he was a bit shady in the SEC but what coach in that conference isnt shady? I think that he will clean up UM, bring back respect, defense, and the fear that opp once felt when they played Michigan. He wont be here for the 15 years that we wanted JH to be, but I believe that he'll have enough time to groom a successor worthy of the position. I just hope that the Lloyd/Brady Hoke camp doesnt do anything to sabotoge this like last time. Go blue,
This will all have me lying naked on the kitchen floor and sucking my thumb in the fetal position by the end of the week...
Hey we are due.
radio host just put his job on the line regarding this story. hope he's right
I have a good feeling about this weekend.... "in DB we trust" #goblue
Talking about recruiting weekend, probably.
Can't recruit without a coach! All recruiting visits were cancelled for this weekend. Maybe he's talking about the All American Game, but then why the in DB we trust? I DO think we're going to pick up Kris Frost at the very least, though, FWIW.
can we get that live blog going from last night again? was much easier to keep up with everything for us that have not slept much this week!!
I will admit I doubted. We'll know for sure soon but it's looking solid at this point.
I gave you some props on the front page of this thread by name fwiw. If this is true, we owe you some points!
I had you down as a troll too!
Hey LSU post game dudes, turn down your MSN Messenger/Facebook sound effects!
For what it's worth and I don't know if its been posted yet but..
"Everybody I think we going for Les Miles that's my pick!!"
"In a couple years after football I want to one day be able to wake up and say "I'm the fucking Head Coach of Michigan." Coming Soon!!"
- Brandon Graham
Any chance DB is waiting to see if the Ravens lose Sunday in Kansas City? Just throwing it out there...
Ads I would not expect: Cirque de Solei on an LSU football post-game show.
This was actually funny. What would suprise you more: Cirque de Solei ads on an LSU football post game OR a tOSU football post game?
saying miles assured his team after the cotton bowl that he would return and not take the michigan job.
If they hire Hoke, Brian can make shirts that looked like the ones that Hulk Hogan wore, except they would say "Hokemania" instead of "Hulkamania" ( thanks for the idea PurpleStuff)
That this was DB's plan all along? He played everything so close to the vest it's hard to say what he was thinking. Rumors swirled that obviously UM was interested in JH, but other than John Clayton saying we offered JH $5.2 mil, I haven't seen anything that said we even contacted him. Also, common perception was that Hoke was DB's guy. If that was true, then why isn't he HC? Even though I'll be very happy with the hire, if any of this speculation is true, I can't say I'm thrilled with the process.
I hope he (DB) writes a book about it eventually. I'd buy it.
If he gets Miles, what about the process doesn't thrill you? The media speculation has been frustrating but Brandon seems to be working pretty quickly and professionally.
But the timeline leaves me scratching my head. Based on how soon after the Cotton Bowl we heard the news, one can assume that DB and LM have been in talks since before the Gator Bowl. Meaning, the result of that game probably factored very little in the decision regarding RR. If that's the case, then why wasn't some sort of move made post OSU, pre Gator debacle. Some sign of competency that wouldn't have cost us further embarrassment and nearly four weeks of recruiting. I'm not saying Les couldn't have coached LSU in the cotton bowl, but maybe the announcement of his hire at Michigan could have saved some face.
Sorry, it's late, this whole thing has me resorting to paragraphs of random streaming consciousness, and for that I apologize.
/rant. /speculation. /brain diarrhea.
I think DB honestly thought RR and the team deserved and earned to play their bowl game. Thus he didn't make any changes until after the bowl.
that made you rant...
these radio guys in LA have no idea how many UM fans are listening to this right now. we should let them know.
Has anyone considered the possibility that the Michigan plane that flew to Baton Rouge was to meet Les after the bowl game to take him back to AA? People seemed so focused on the fact that the plane flew to Baton Rouge when Les was in Texas. Well, Les will be back in Baton Rouge very shortly....
It was carrying organs.
with that is that the plane only spent two hours in Baton Rouge, before leaving. It is not in Baton Rouge anymore.
ha ha and someone did call and let them know!!
ha. now they get it. in a bit they'll figure out how rabid we are.
The number for the show
LOL at the Michigan people calling WJBO.
WJBO is my new favorite station...they are getting blown up with Michigan calls. "Everyone would love" if LM come to UM, acccording to the last caller (from Flint).
Les told the team after he wasn't leaving.3 players confirmed
than I doubt LM is coming here. Didn't he say the same thing to his players at Ok State before leaving though? I find it hard to believe, that Les would do it again. He is has to know how that would make him look. Not that I would be thrilled with hiring Les, but if UM already contacted other candidates, and it's down to Les and Hoke, I would take Les.
Say what you will about Les, but at least he'll make it interesting.
Of course he may cause Brian's head to asplode as well.
I love it how us Michigan fans are up at 1:30 am eastern time talking about the program! Go Blue!!!
I also can't believe how cool the hosts are being to Michigan callers. They are welcoming them on, thanking people on the "Michigan message boards" for the attention, and answering questions about how Les, who is still their coach, will do in AA. Very, very professional.
LSU fans really sound like they will sincerely miss les miles when he comes to michigan. the players love him
That rabble does not deserve him, wherever he ends up.
The invasion of the LSU post game show is epic. They really can't doubt our fandom from this point forward
video of Les Miles clapping, gotta love it!
please just hire a good coach soon. I don't know what to think anymore, about The Hat, The Hoke or any mystery candidates - and these constant "breaking news" deals are making my brain bleed.
At this point, I will be glad to have a coach and possibly rationalize that DB had a plan all along and needed to wait for LSUs bowl game to come and go. But, If I wake up tomorrow to read that Miles told UM to go fuck itself, I'll kick a baby....a human baby...right in the goddamned face. I cant take this shit anymore.
