That we'll be missing that much knowledge from a "guru" like you.....
New Coaches not helping Seniors
Then take it like a man and stop complaining. You fucked up.
After reading his Twitter feed and his numerous tweets to Cooper along with tweets to Gardner and Cooper, I think the MGoStalkerVan keys should just be handed over to Rider. Guy is a little creepy.
If you actually have read any of Darian's tweets he says he kinda likes all the people telling him where to go. So I'm just encouraging him to do what's best.
Why are you contacting 18-year-old kids you don't know?
It's not contacting... It's tweeting. If your too stupid to realize the difference, then I'm sorry. I can tweet Tiger Woods, I don't know him but I am a fan of his. If Darian Cooper comes to Michigan I would be a fan of his also. Thus the simple tweet, perhaps you guys don't get the dynamics of twitter. If Darian minded people tweeting at him he would lock his twitter and only accept people he knew. Stop trying to nitpick for stupid shit.
"If your too stupid to realize the difference, then I'm sorry."
That's some funny stuff right there.
Twitter isn't for everybody, mrider.
What were the Kardashians up to last night?
No fact, nothing, just something a former player said. How is it we can trust his tweeted word 100%, but those of us willing to give Hoke the benefit of the doubt are the ones who don't get it? How is this ANY different than how RR was treated when he got to Michigan?
MGoEasyRider or whoever the hell you are, I hope you realize that by tweeting to Desmond you are contributing to the problem. We know nothing about the situation, but apparently it's enough to condemn Hoke forever? What?
Wait a minute....ARE YOU MICHEAL ROSENBURG?!?!? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH KILL ME NOW!!!
If the guy hasn't figured out how to lift by the time he's a fifth year senior, there is nothing a S&C coach can do for him. The NFL Combine is pretty clear on what kind of weight lifting they have kids do and I'm sure with a Michigan education Banks can google up that list of exercises and start working on them. It's not like he's being denied access to the facility or Wellman is ordering kids/staff not to spot him, he's just not getting personal attention from the S&C coach.
Also for the record, Wellman does have recruiting duties, namely hosting type things. Kids are are thinking about playing us typically want to meet the S&C guy. Plus he's running small group workouts all day.
Banks isn't getting to work in those groups. That's what I am pissed about.
Give us the rundown of your grandma's birthday party......
How old is she?
What did you drink there that made you act like this?
My rundown of the party, good food, good booze, good times.
No cake but the dessert was shitty.
I had a bunch of beers and wine with dinner.
Your a sarcastic not funny douche a lot of the time.
First off prove that point. I'd like to the Tweet where Banks flat out says "I'm banned from Michigan facilities." Not "Wellman isn't helping me bench" but rather something along the lines of his MCard won't pop the door and let him into the facility. I only ever played club hockey and my card will still pop that door and I've gotten help from S&C guys in passing. Banks specifically talked about helping him prepare for the NFL draft. Not "I'm banned from team workouts". My understanding is right now none of the seniors are getting help for NFL workouts. Wellman is splitting his time between hosting visitors and installing his system. When the team (all 80+ athletes) know the system and the drills he'll then have the free time to do one on ones because assistants can supervise the group drills. No one is getting one on ones right now. The focus is the the team and once the team understands the direct the new regime is going then people will get individual attention. It isn't that Banks was told to get lost, it is that the focus of the program is on small group drills.
Keep assuming you know everything about the condition of the program from a 140 character Tweet or two though.
But by continuing it now, there is no excuse.
Again, take some deep breaths and use some freaking common sense to think about the situation and ask yourself these questions.
What is priority one for the new staff?
Also think about what their lives entail right now....
But I suppose you will just keep playing the angry man...
First Class ticket to Bolivia for you rider.
Could we just send him coach? Rider and those free drinks might be a bad combination.
How is this thread still around? Just completely ridiculous. Shut it down.
and thats a big "IF", Banks is an RR apologist and doesnt really approve of the whole CC situation. Maybe this could be his way of supporting the ex-coach since he wont be able to have a voice on the team anymore. Its all speculation though, as again, we are going off of a twitter conversation. This is pretty ludicrous in my opinion. Trying to get ex-Wolverines involved (D Howard) is stupid but I think he's smart enough to know what to do with this.
He doesn't even know everyone's name yet I'm sure! He's probably getting the younger guys ready first and figures the seniors should know something by now so he'll deal with them last.
I got shorted a medium fry at Burger King last night, and am looking for ways to get even. I know who to contact for advice.
RR was hated by a lot of LC fans, but he never ever ever bailed like this.
I'm sure you know this for a fact.
mRider, where should I send my greeting card to??
This thread was a waste of board space...
There's a time and a place for a post like this.
And it wasn't today on this site.
You don't really know anything about the circumstances or context of this tweet, and are grasping at something--anything--to justify lingering resentments about RR's firing. It's all very Rosendouchey, TBH. Please give Hoke and his staff some time to prove whether who they are and how they do things before announcing the start of the inquisition, mmm-kay?
Banks knows where Dave Brandon's office is. if he was truly concerned, he wouldn't be messaging a former player - he'd be notifying the AD that his new employees are not helping the way they should.
the fact you're unrepentant likely will bring the ban hammer
The more I read this thread the more it makes me laugh. Mrider you are officially THAT guy. You got wasted at your grandma's birthday party and then tweeted Desmond Howard about the atrocities you unearthed on twitter. To sum it up, we are all better off for not really knowing you. Pace your self next year at grandma's birthday for the sake of everyone involved. Maybe stop at 3 Zimas?
Tweeting to ex-players and current recruits is probably the lamest thing ever unless your Tom VH gathering info. I know you probably think its cool MRider but really, it not. Not at all. Its sad and ridiculous, your making us all look bad and it makes you look pathetic.
You really do deserve to be sent to Bolivia, and I hope once the point system is up and running again Brian puts your ass so far in the hole you'll never be able to start a thread ever again. This was uncalled for, your a nutbag.
UPDATE with actual information: There's a post at GBW that details all of this from Sam Webb. I don't know if he'll mention it on the radio or not.
I'm not going to copy and paste it or paraphrase it. Someone else is more than welcome to.
Quick summary, IF a former player asks for assistance, they will receive it. But the S&C staff's priority is the current team. As noted above, Carlos Brown was in working out last week.
