Seriously? You can stop now.
And jim Harbaugh is a saint.
"de plane...de plane!..."
Wow...we sure do have some irrational fans! Was today a bad day for our beloved Wolverines...yeah sure, but c'mon....people take a deep breath and relax. We will have a coach by mid next week at the latest and any of these kids that were leans (unless the are early enrollees) will still be in the fold. There have been plenty of surpises right up to signing day in the last decade.
And one last thing....WHOEVER THE COACH ENDS UP BEING....can we PLEASE be a united front. We have enough forces working against us already....let's not throw logs ont he fire.
I'm happy to be irrational if it means wanting Michigan to have integrity.
Who fucks over his own players.
This guy deserves it.
Plus ten for guy advocating unity....
any of these kids that were leans (unless the are early enrollees) will still be in the fold.
This isn't FantasyLand®, most of our top recruits verbally (and some very publicly) have committed to other schools.
I am completely onboard with supporting the staff fully ONCE THEY ARE HIRED. But until that time, I think it's perfectly reasonable for anyone to express their opinion for or against any candidate.
But yeah, once they sign on the dotted line and indicate their desire to be Michigan's Head Football Coach - Then I agree everyone should just swallow any ill feelings and get behind the TEAM.
now that RR is gone we need to present a united front.
Well Brandon is not down in the Bayou buying cajun food for sure... he's there to try & secure Miles as a HC. If he does, hopes he locks up & brings Chavis with him.......Now the issue of what the guys at www.wjob.com is taking place.... a Miles decision expected within 48 hours, (from last night's) game... so we will see it will either be yea or nay.....
If we hired Bobby Petrino...I'm not sure I could support him as Head Coach. He is literally the only reason I ever briefly considered rooting for OSU(I know I know, neg as needed)
Should I start the Pat-Ter-Son chant? Or do you want to?
Harbaugh decommitted from the 49ers??
But seriously, list:
Patterson (extension signed)
Bielema (Hell no)
Tressel (Hell no)
Chizik (Nope again)
Petrino (highly doubt it)
That leaves...Stoops (!!!!!!)
Why do you think it has to be a HC? It could be one of the assistants
The vagueness of Twitter. I'm gonna let wlubd answer that.
Assuming that's the case and it's a head coach, the list would be:
Stoops-Maybe but not realistic IMO.
Assume that leaves Patterson, Petrino and Stoops in that order of likeliness. I'll still hope for Patterson but looks for all intents and purposes to be Miles.
EDIT: Beaten to it. By 5 minutes. How the hell did it take me that long to type this?
I only regret that I have but one neg to give for this post.

who act like being a michigan man is such a big deal will gladly overlook much of what les does just because hes a michigan man. they held richrod to such high standards because they didnt like him and they were looking for a reason to hate him
Do you like Michigan just because there helmets are blue? If the team doesn't stand for something, then what's the point?
to win football games. im not saying i want us to lower our standars, but dont be surprised when half the michigan fans you meet will accept miles with all his baggage because he is a) a michigan man and b) a winner
no one denies he was expected to beat state and tosu. i mean high moral standards. 20 minutes of extra practice time and half the fan base talks about how he has no morals. he had to pay a buyout to WVU and people say he has no class. etc
if harbuagh or miles come, those same people will not care if they leave and have to pay a buyout. what i'm saying is people will gladly overlook les miles oversigning and backstabbing players because he's "A MITCHIGAN MAAAAN'" while richrod was publicly ridiculed whenever he looked the wrong way at a reporter
for the sake of winning football games. he doesnt ditch players and oversign because he hates lsu, he does it because it helps him win because thats his job
Les Miles is NSFW/H/Kass! Hide yo kids, hide yo grass, hide yo hats, and hide yo recruits cuz Les Miles is one sketchy mother- [shut your mouth!]
I'm only talking bout the Mad Hatter [we can dig it].
Michigan will have to worry about undersigning (is it possible) if we dont lock up a viable option at head coach. If its Les Miles so be it.
ESPN is reporting as of a few minutes ago that BD is going to ask permission (or has) to talk to Les Miles.
I have no opinion on whether this is true.
However, I hope it is true because at some point we're going to need a coach who can at least attract a few recruits, i.e., DB may have boxed himself into a corner now NEEDING an impressive name coach just to keep the team together.
about who we are actually going to end up with but everyone knows that even if we hire someone senseless we should probably all not complain because last time 10% of the fans fretted very vocally over meaningless stuff we ended up right where we are now
(shrug) Don't know what to tell you.
For every violation and social faux pas, but now with Les it's "eh".
I don't think you've seen me make excuses for anything regarding Les Miles today, aside from criticizing the completely juvenile panic people are treating the possibility of him coming to Michigan.
And "overreaction", no?
Our identity in the "real world" is defined by the quality of the instituition...and that isn't changing. The quality of our football program is judged by wins and losses. And morality, last I checked, was judged individually by God. Nobody knows for sure what happened with Les - it's rumors. And even if it's true, we as bloggers lost the moral high ground as soon as we started spreading them on a message board.
So bottom line, I think we should give Les a chance if he's qualified (he is) and leave the morality judgements for the professionals.
They're not God.
Do you think any coach or program is dirty? If yes, how do you really know?
It's not rumors. And you don't need to be a diety to know that lying to kids is bad.
You will feel his wrath soon enough!
Every parent that tells their kids that Santa exists has no morals!!! They are lying to kids!!!!!! THAT IS "almost" like FRAUD!!
Is shady. Yes - point made and taken. I don't know that I would consider it immoral. Maybe I should, but I don't draw such a black and white distinction. The other alleged stuff with other coaches wives, etc - that's the immorality that I just don't want to even factor into my approval or disapproval since I'm not there, it's gossip, internet slander/libel, and who knows what all is involved. That's the part that I think is between man and your God. The NCAA stuff with oversigning - we gotta be careful there. But surely you can concede that the Big 10 restrictions would aid in controlling any shananigans up in AA on that issue? If oversigning is not going to be an issue at Michigan with Les, and we compartmentalize the rest of the rumors, the two "cons" left on Les that we're left with is:
- Clock Management
So if he has a couple hi-po's on his staff to address the former and a great OC to help him think clearly at the end of games, I guess we're just left with a coach who recruits talent, knows our tradions, and wins. Oh, and he eats grass.
Does that about sum it up?
He's not morally fit because he has NO morals!
