There is hope in 2014!
landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
There is hope in 2014!
THE NUSS BUS!
This far exceeded my expectations in quantity and timing. I am really excited about this hire! Young coach, quality offenses which moved the ball against quality defenses.
Posbang to all!
Great hire. I can't wait to see how the 2015 recruiting class fills out as well as how the 2014 team performs. I have to believe a message was sent to McDowell also that Hoke is determined to win.
Agreed! I would think this could send a pretty good message to recruits - not only was he very successful there, but he left Alabama to come here! Here's to 2014!
Wait... how many Bama OC's did we just hire? ROLL TIDE
I'm absolutely beside myself... Great hire for Coach Hoke and Dave Brandon.
I'm all like...
Tonight has left me thoroughly paloos'd. But in a good way.
I'll allow it!
Very timely, and appropriate!
You beat me to the punch by a minute on this thread. Posbang me! Woo, Nussmeier!
Ha, sorry. I just can't get eNUSS POSBANG .
May as well change your sig now.
Just because there is a new doesn't mean it is still not true though. There is a reason he was fired.
Oh no, it was definitely true. I think that's why everyone on this board is so happy right now.
Pretty good day for me. Just skied a two feet of fresh snow at Bridger Bowl, Montana. Got home and saw Borges was fired.
Now we hire this guy? I'm super impressed hearing him speak in this clip before the NC game last year against ND: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLRaPNk2LW8
We will always have ND 2011 and 2013, Indiana 2013, and Ohio 2011 (and sorta 2013), along with sundry other good individual and team performances. I wish you well in the future.
Dear Coach Nuss,
We are looking forward to more memories, more records, and most important: more B1G wins, rivalry wins, and bowl wins!!!!!
Short and sweet and classy!
I NUSS ask a question of all of you...
How awesome is this?
24 hours makes. George? Did you see what Hoke did? Come back home. Its fine now.
Please revive our running game, Doug!
What an awesome hire!
Welcome Coach Nussmeier! Can't wait for the season to start!
I bet he even tells Heiko that he has a separate playbook dedicated specifically to screens...
Combine this great OC news with Brian's hope-filled defensive analysis for an experience laden 2014 defense and you get a POSBANG!
2014- like 2013 except way better!
Yeah!!!! The board is barely working and I don't even care!!! Whooooooo!!!
WOO HOO NU!!!!!
When they said I'd be please with the hire, as a Michigan fan, they were wrong. I'm LIKE A 5 YEAR OLD ON CHRISTMAS HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
with his track record with QBs, I can't wait to see what Nuss can do with senior Devin Gardner!!!
This is absolutely fantastic news. To get a coach like this less than four hours after sending Al on his merry way is like whipped cream on top of the cherry that sits on top of whipped cream that sits on top of Kate Upton.
but I'm assuming this has been in the works for weeks. I just wonder how long Borges knew. Did they hire Nussmeier behind his back or has Al known he's been fired for a few weeks and just keep quiet?
I would guess they began negotiations with Nuss about 30 seconds after the BWW game ended and finalized them this afternoon around 4:30 or so. Once they had that deal done it was time for Al's annual performance review and as we all know now....that didn't go so good.
I doubt Al got "pre-fired" Gordon but I also have no doubt they had Nuss lined up and ready to go before they sent Al packing.
trying to pick my jaw up.
I bet he even uses a toilet paper Heiko approves,
Yes /pumps fist
Teach me teach me how to Nuss-ie...!
Dude must be getting paid. Nice to see a young adaptable guy who could even be HC material one day.
Any chance we get back God as of S&C coordinaor?
I swear, all hires should be crowsourced by alumni!
Is gonna be a hell of a year
Hail bitches Hail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
whats his 40 time?
The future is bright.... GO BLUE.
I feel like David after dentist. Is this real life?
A guy that has had success in SEC, great philosophy for the guys we have, has been around the atmosphere of the best program there is, and can recruit in SEC country. This is a miracle, honestly though i just pissed my pants but i cant get it out of my head that there might be a reason Saban kind of pushed him out for Kiffin...just saying
The reason is Saban is a horrible judge of character.
I wondered this as well. Could be something, could be nothing. However, I will gladly take a guy who worked with Saban for 2 years. Saban just wins.
If this Kiffin deal is true, then this is a de facto Lane Kiffin pos-bang! Pos-bang for Lane Kiffin as coach-in-waiting at 'Bama!
positive rushing yards everyone
He isn't bringing Alabama's O-line with him. It might still be a rough year on the ground
First I was pissed about not getting Cam Cameron, then I was all
2014 is looking good. This hire is just pure awesome and an obvious huge upgrade from borges. Hello: Nuss!
I can definitely get down with this, yo.
2014 is awesome!!
Holy crap. The dog jumped on my lap, my finger slipped, and I accidentally negged you. But then I discovered that I could quickly change my downvote to upvote. I feel horrible, though, for momentarily negging this. Please forgive me.
"Holy crap. The dog jumped on my lap, my finger slipped,"
I was fearful of what might follow after staring at that Kate Upton gif for about 15 min straight.
I was in frantic posbang mode, quickly scrolling down and bangin' everyone. The sudden appearance of an 80 pound retriever mix on my lap threw off my posbangin' timing. I mean, I was in rare pos-bang form. I was on fire. I honestly didn't look at the Kate pic for more than a glance. When you're in the middle of a good posbang, you sometimes don't have time to ingest the good stuff for too long, especially when there's a long line of people below waiting for some posbang mojo.
Someone please post ALL of the Kate Upton dance gifs. And all the Anchorman ones, too!
...this is not Nussmeier's hot wife. His actual wife is even hotter.
Haha! Even Magnus is posting Kate Upton GIFs! I love it. You did a good job of feigning impartiality around the Borges Situation for a good while. Don't know how you kept it in.
Here to get banged......Hail Yeah
...all of the stunneds. Go Blue!
Don't mind me, I'm just here for the banging.
I will admit that my avatar heard about this hire and sort of, well....in a very good way....
please bring a few of Saban's over-signings with you.
I'll bang for a proven offensive coordinator. Welcome to Ann Arbor Doug Nussmeier.
my wife and I are having our baby tonight AND hoke hires away alabamas OC. What a glorious day!!!!
You are naming the kid Dougie either way, correct?
Congrats - and good luck!!
I jus can't get enuss...who can you trust?..not Al Borges so we left him in the dust.
One hell of a hire!
One hell of an improvement over 2013!
MGoBlog be reasoning like Emeril be seasoning. THINGS!! NEW!!!
I saw that too a little bit ago and have no clue what that means. But hey this is very, very happy day for all of us so what the heck.
The long national....errr....Michigan nightmare is over.
Sometimes things that make no sense make the most sense.
Let's go recruit sec county
Everyone celebrate by growing your hair out and mom-dancing!!
That's some impressive Commander Sheparding right there.
I wish I could give multiple upvotes for this
This is like a legendary triple-banger!!!!
The scotch is flowing tonight. Huzzah
Successful in toughest conference in the country, strong recruiter, can even do a little pro-spread hybrid stuff. What's not to like?
Nuss is great. Amazing even. I wonder who the new position coaches, if any, will be.
I likes 2014.
Yo, you can check my commenting history, but I called that it was gonna be Nuss, and I couldn't be happier to be right. This is going to bring Michigan back to the top
I checked the other thread. None other than Jack Daniels predicted this hire. THE KNOWLEDGE has been outed! +1000 to you.
Thanks, Naked Bootlegger! I'll plus-one you once I'm not on a mobile device!!!
we need to somehow petition the mods to give a few thousand extra points
Was Nuss in the fold befor Al was let loss?
For realz? These things don't come together in a couple of hours
Till you get a nuss...
So happy I just high fived myself again.
Awesome!! How many days till the opener!? Woot woot!
If Hoke is going to be the executive type HC, these two moves have restored my faith in him. He did what Lloyd wouldn't have in firing Al who obviously needed to go. He waited to announce the firing until the targeted replacement was secure. And he got probably the best candidate that no one really thought was even available.
He did what Lloyd wouldn't have in firing Al who obviously needed to go.
Not sure why people keep saying this about Lloyd. He demoted Jackson, fired Parrish, and "encouraged" Herrmann to take an NFL position coach job. Carr recognized when it was necessary to make staff changes, and Hoke probably learned this from him.
Best year ever
I like the way you are starting!
WOO!!!!! 2014. 2014. 2014.
Can we imagine the Nuss ran offense vs say Ohio?
But ... wait. He wasn't the one who decided to go for the last second field-goal against Auburn, was he...?
What a year!
I can't stop smiling. I'm just staring stupidly at the screen... smiling.
All your coordinators are belong to us.
Yes! After such a rotten 2013 season, I did not expect to be this excited about Michigan football for a while. I was afraid we'd just be complacent with the coaching staff and bask in our mediocrity. What a RELIEF!!!
Now if we can only get a homerun hire for our new Oline coach!
The title tricked me into thinking this was early discussion of the App State game... damn you....
And it made me hate the Special K playlist even more.
Was this what it felt like when the Berlin Wall came crashing down?
Just wow. Great work BH/DB
Nuss-ing could make me happier than this! Nuss-ing can stop us now! I see nuss-ing wrong with this hire! I'm going to stop now! Go Blue!
We're actually getting Ala-freakin'-bama's offensive coordinator?
Holy shit. HOLY SHIT.
Herbie was not lying.
Pos bang!!!!! I'm so excite!!!!!
OMG YES 2014 weird that he would make this sideways move when he could probably get a decent head coaching job now or in a year or two. Maybe he still will take a HC job in a year or two that would suck
Let's worry about a year or two from now when it's a year or two from now.
I'm so numb from the season I hardly know what to feel. This... feels... good?
Wow, I did NOT expect Borges to get fired this year. This made my night. This made my week!
I guess I may as well renew for a 28th straight year.
Scary to think how close of a decision that was. Pay the man
19th year. Safe to say I will renew.
the best of luck to Big Al, he seemed like a good enough guy. BUT DAMMIT AM I FREAKING EXCITED!
Long story. But this is a freqking home run.
I can't handle it. Even the MgoBlog Banner tag line has changed!
Never thought this evening would be this action packed.
if I could upvote this I would. Sprockets! Go Blue!
Keep the pos bang train rollin rollin rollin.
Whats the best Bama blog I want to see their reactions?
Terrible punctuation there but fuck it
With Saban being a more defensive minded coach and things going extremely well with the Bama offense over the last couple years, can't say I'm unhappy with the hire.
Maybe we can get POSITIVE rushing yards with our RBs next year! Yay positive yards! Boo negative yards!
Best possible hire. It's strange but I feel like this hire could completely change the direction of the program, and he's not even a head coach.
Hoke is changing The 'Tide...?
Alabama's OC. What more could we expect!!
Never posted in one of these threads before, but after the suck that was 2013, I need a bang.
AND I just recieved the ability to "bang," so here you go.
Me three! Just joined though I have been a reader for quite a while.
for the Spring Game! Can we get a Spring Game Countdown yet???
Pos - away!
Damn it! every time a posbang thread is born I am late to the show and everyone has already climaxed.
After reading up on Nussmeier, I am beyond thrilled! And I hope the recruits are too. And Devin and Shane and Speight!
Let's not forget Al's good efforts:
-2011 Ohio State
-2013 Ohio State
-???(that might be it)
He was outstanding that game and 2013 Indiana was pretty damn good even though we played a pee-wee defense
2012 Iowa was a very well called game. I was at the game and remember thinking "that was a great play....why not save it for Ohio next week?"
2012 South Carolina and 2013 Minnesota as well.
Makes me feel so much more confident that our run game will be stellar and he will utilize our strengths instead of being so damn stubborn like Gorgeous was
Hoke and Brandon completely exceeded my ecpectations. 2014 is starting off nice.
I'm happy Brandon shelled out the cash. I'm curious how much of this decision was Hoke, and how much was Brandon.
Our offense will E-Nuss-erate our competitors. The Nuss-man. Nusserino. Nussmeister.
as I sit at my wife's grandmother's funeral in New Jersey. (Easy now, she was 98.)
Great hire!! He runs the exact offense we want. Curious what happens to the rest of the offensive staff?? Does he get to pick his coaches or what cause i find it strange that he would have to adjust to coaching with complete strangers
I hear he wants a couple of his own guys.
I was hoping this is why no other coaches were let go. They're waiting for him to be part of those decisions.
We're having subs!!!!! This is Crazy!!!!
Guys I can not contain my excitement. I have been around for a long time but this got me signed up. I want to shout from a rooftop how excited I am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Brandon and Hoke do a sales job and I bet with Nuss being as young as he is, Brandon hinted that success = next Michigan HC. Classic business strategy. Acquire your competitor if their future looks brighter than yours. Nuss has learned the process, he's successful, he has the knowledge you seek. I wonder how much latitude he'll have with the assistant coaches. Does he retain Funk?
Poor Damn Fitz Toussiant. Can we get a few pos bangs for the guy who had his eligibility expire a year too early.
This guy has "upward mobility" so hopefully he rights the ship and makes the offense awesome for a few years before he goes to the NFL. If he can stablize things and lay out a foundation for the offense, the depth should carry it from there when he moves on
Or he could stick around and become the head coach of Michigan after a while when Brady retires.
probably let him coach a game here first before jumping the gun.
He's on the rise and fast. Brady (if he maintains his job) probably has 10+ years left in him before retiring and he likes his job. No way is Nussmeier going to hang around that long. He'll be in the NFL within 5-7 years
...they pulled the burlap bag off my head, handed me an ice cold six pack, and asked how I'd like my steak prepared.
I'm slightly ashamed for having read literally every comment. Nevertheless, we hired a stud OC. woooooo!!!
We hired a coach under 60 years old!
Hopefully he sticks around for 7 years. And becomes the next head coach at Michigan.
When Nuss finally agreed, Al got canned. I think he will do a great job at Michigan. He was able to get a very young Alabama team to the NC game! We have something to look forward to!
Im excited but NOT too excited just yet..I hope he brings a OL coach with him because Funk also needs to go..last time i got too excited was when we got Mattison and the defense hasnt been great...
Bang me up !!!
GhostofYost is missing all of this happiness.
This makes me happy.
Moustache guy is the best part of this gif
Time to go full Godfather: (1) Wheatley; (2) Bostad
Kill em all
Looks like 11w is a little scared. A poster from there-
...the fact that they got someone from the Alabama coaching staff kinda makes my butthole quiver a little..
Your move urban Indeed.
Can't sleep, too excited for the 2014 football season!
I wanted to try to stay positive about Borges...but I admit I was silently hoping for something like this. Now...to scroll through upvoting everyone.
Nicely played, Hoke and Brandon.
Pos pos pos banging everyone. Hit me up too.
Just when I was starting to get all down on Hoke and Michigan's staff.......
Kittens. Miracles. Rainbows.
2014, man. 2014!
Our Meier > your Meyer
A genuine thanks to Gorgeous Al Borges.
My avatar caused me much.... heartache. Please my brethren, which new avatar should I choose?
Animated gif morphing Gorgeous Al into Nussmeier. With a ray of light shining down from the heavens.
Never forget the past, or you'll be doomed to repeat it.
But let me be an echo here and just say wow! Did not see this coming when I woke up this morning..
Nuss was a lefty QB. Coincidence: I think not!
define the term "giddy with joy."
I can't believe it. I really was afraid that we were going to settle for a who's available type of hire. Just amazing.
That there was a power struggle taking place in Schembechler hall I guess he wasn't full of hot air after all... Great hire, it shows Michigan is willing to step outside it's comfort zone and do what it takes to be successful.
FIRE NUSS! /s
Releash the muppets!!
