I feel better now
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I feel better now
Isnt Mattison the guy who left Michigan for ND, and Bo told him to never come back? Aside from that, I'm extremelyyyyyyy happy about the hire
OK, now I feel better about the Hoke hire.
Great News. Please sign a couple D players now.
Dude has a lot of work to do ... since it's 3rd and long....it's time to BLITZ
Not a good analogy as it's known he doesn't blitz on third n long.
I'm thinking maybe a manatee or a stuffed Shamu from SeaWorld.
Stuffed with rocks, nails and broken glass, since that's how we will be on defense
Great news. Mattison could really help especially if they can sign soon and have him make a few recruiting calls. Coming from the league is huge.
A new coordinator. Bring back Michigan football, smash mouth, fundamentally sound football! I love it. Go Blue!
now all I want to hear is Loefller turning down Miles to come QB coach for us, but I don't think that will happen
They are done on offense. Borgess is going to coach the QB's. All that is left to hire is a DB and DL coach.
we have a ST coach yet?
How do you figure? That would only make 4 coaches on offense and 3 on defense (Mattison should coach DL). We still need 2 more. Loeffler and either another DB coach or a ST coach would make sense.
Lou's brother will coach TE and ST
...what is it with Hoke and hiring Bald coaches. Borgess and Mattison we know and Ferrigno belongs to the "I don't need to worry about hairstyling" club...
The offensive staff is :
We have a LB coach and a DC, so all we have left to hire is a DL coach and a DB coach.
Seeing as he has coached one of the best LB in the history of the NFL is it out of the realm of possibility that we might be able to turn Frost blue?
visit would go like this.
Mattison: Thanks for having me here today Kris
Frost: No problem coach
Mattison: I want you to rethink you wanting to play WR and be my Ray Lewis.
I got wood
Tonight I will dream of a menacing future defense stocked with All Big Ten names like Courtney Avery, Ray Vinopal, Carvin Johnson and Jibreel Black.
Let us hope this is true. tryna save this class. I think these Tenn recruits hoke is tryna get is a long shot that he thinks if he gets People will believe his recruiting hype.
(or maybe he already thinks he's that good)
I didn't read your post, I got distracted by your avatar. What the hell is that?
Was our #1 realistic option. Great we got him.
Now get on the road, and start recruitin'!
where's the catch?
"Greg Mattison (born November 15, 1949 in Madison, WI, USA) is the current defensive coordinator for the University of Michigan football team."
Someone from MGoBlog probably edited that in.
WAHOO! I hope he can coach a D that doesn't have Ngata, Lewis and Ed Reed...
For everyone (like myself) who was bemoaning the fact that we weren't going to go for the home run hire like Randy Shannon, I think Hoke deserves some major kudos for this. This is an absolute coup. Better hire than even Shannon would have been.
No longer a Michigan fan. Michigan just hired a coach who quit on them when he took the ND DC position a while back. I can't cheer for a team that hires a coach who turned his back on Michigan before. Where's the integrity that Michigan claims to have?
Michigan just can't afford to lose this sort of dedicated fan. We'll have to find another DC.
Dude if you were any sort of fan to begin with you would applaud any move that makes this football team better.
That is all.
If so, can I have them?
Double post. ...so if you have two sets, can I have both?
This is an issue blown out of propotion. Its said off hearsay of a coach leaving due to family preferences. Don't run with the Jersey Shore drama that is written about everything.
what else is there to say.
so long sucker, see ya, bon voyage, arrivederci, later loser, goodbye, good riddance, peace out, let the doorknob hit ya where the good Lord split ya, don't come back around here no more, hasta la vista, kick rocks, and get the hell out.
See ya later then, Big Guy. Enjoy Bolivia.
on this thread negate the point i voted to take away from you? anyway, adios you Tool.
Like a fan that turns is back on his team because they don't follow the codes and specs HE think they should. No offense but I think they'll be fine without you. I hear theres room on that green piece of crap bandwagon. Grab your ski mask and hitch a ride.
I don't care if those doucheknuckles from the Jersey Shore were coaching Michigan, I could NEVER turn my back on this program.
Happy trails buddy
A troll-like comment I must say *chomps on cigar and leans way back in my chair*
don't let the door hit ya on the way out...
But I never understand this reaction from fans. Mattison didn't go to or play for U-M. I can see Lloyd getting pissed, but what fan wouldn't leave their job for more pay and free tuition for their kids? I mean, if you worked for Ford, and GM offered you a raise and to give all your kids free cars, you wouldn't take it?
It will be interesting to see what base defense he installs. The Ravens are really a hybrid 3-4 team that runs a lot of 4-3 looks.
Hoke is dominating the world. This is a huge hire and we should see some immediate benefits in both recruiting and on field success. Nice work Brady.
Hoke's magic wand has shaken off the dust (Tom Brady), now maybe Frost, McClure, Raven, Jalil, Taylor, any combo would be great
