I don't think they changed Les at all actually

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
urban is a piece of shit.
Hey moron, not ONE coach in Michigan's history left the program to coach another school or in the NFL. NOT ONE.
When the ADept sells special jerseys and gear, you'll see my picture next to the targeted customer crowd. A sheep.....but a Blue one.....
He left to become Wisconsin's head coach, as well as their AD.
Can't imagine he would be any happier in the league..
The man lives and loves UM football. Have to believe he will stay as long as he is welcome.
I really doubt Meyer would suggest something like that.
Is this why Florida was having Rodriguez level attrition by the time Meyer was leaving? Because all these guys start to realize how much their coach lies to them?
Not that I loved Rich Rod less, but that I loved Michigan more.
Brady Hoke is assembling an NFL team at the University of Michigan
Why should Hoke go to the NFL? The NFL is coming to him.
It shouldn't be that hard to convince a recruit that he's staying at Michigan, where they can get NFL-level coaching.
Yeah. Hoke isn't leaving unless the AD makes him leave. This is his last stop on the coaching road.
If you need drugs to be a good writer, you're not a good writer.
Welcome to my world.
The difference being that Brian Kelly actually did have an interview with an NFL team, no?
If other schools are going to use that to try and negative recruit ND, it's a dick move, but it's still Kelly kind of screwing himself to a certain extent.
Brady Hoke to the NFL is a completely baseless fabrication.
"...what do you say, is it the new Bluesmobile or what?"
"Fix the cigarette lighter."
I wouldn't be surprised at all if he was getting attention from NFL teams. The guy can coach. Michigan was a mess when he took over in 2011.
So what? Every guy that gets a wink does not cheat.
It's on the Internet so it's obviously true.
Denied by UM multiple times, nonetheless lifelong M fan.
Is the one who is going to get temptations in the next couple of years, with some success at osu you can bet that teams with openings probably happening in the near future will be calling him....I can think of USC, Texas, maybe LSU as soon as they get tired of Les screwing something up every year. Also if chip Kelly has success, you can bet some NFL team will talk to urban, I say no more than 5 years and he is a goner.
Denard Robinson......They're not going to catch him!
Doubtful. Texas and USC are lateral moves from OSU and LSU is a step down. Maybe he goes to the NFL, but I would think if he had interest in that he could have written his ticket after he won his 2nd NC.
Fact is, he's from Ohio and is an OSU grad. Chances of him leaving in the next 5 years are pretty slim. Outside of Michigan, nobody is even close to OSU in talent which means he'll win at least 10 games every year.
Might be on par as a program to those schools but Austin and LA are a helluva lot better than Columbus. When urban finds out he can't do some of the sleaze-ball things consistently in the B1G as he could in the SEC, he will head that direction again or a school like I mentioned. He will be at Ohio for no more than 5-6 years. I just don't see him sticking around...the NFL will be more realistic now than after his 2nd title due to the NFL risking it with chip Kelly, if he is successful, an NFL team will look for the next "chip Kelly" type. Plus, urbs didn't graduate from Ohio, he was an assistant years back...
I agree with Texas being lateral and LSU being a step down, but USC is the best job to have in football, they have a coach with a terrible reputation and they still reeled in 5 star after 5 star after 5 star
May be a step down, although if it is, not by much, it is SEC and can reel in the same, probably more talent than Ohio, granted, I still look at Texas and USC being gigs urban would look into, USC is nowhere near a lateral move compared to Ohio. USC is probably one of the best jobs in America...
At least ten wins. That weak schedule ohio has this upcoming season is laughable. Other than Michigan, the only team showing any upside is northwestern at their place. Unfortunately, unless they trip up against Wisky or Purdue its easy sailing until the final game.
Graduated from Cincinnati not OSU.
"I love him, he's a great coach, he's a great mentor, he's a great friend. He's every single thing you want a college coach to be, and he does it flawlessly." -David Molk
Graduate assistant at osu
Keep_em_honest - while I agree with much of your post, Urban did not graduate from OSU. He graduated and played at Cinci. He was a grad assistant at OSU under Bruce Earl.
Urban has a master's degree in something from OSU. He did his undergrad at UC.
So just to clarify - there isn't any evidence that Meyer said anything about this, right?
enough? Its OHIO fergodsake!
Hoke will easily squash this rumor.
"Michigan Defense" is dominating everything, in every aspect of life. That's a rough definition.
-Craig Roh 10/29/2011
I'd be much more than a little surprised if Hoke left for the NFL. Virtually every action Hoke has taken and every word he has spoken drips with his love of Michigan and the position he is in as the head coach of it.
Hoke bolting to the NFL would actually be more shocking to me than Meyer calling a press conference at which he pulls off a mask and reveals he is actually a green faced Martian whose love of the game of football drove him to fly to Earth and impersonate a human so that Meyer could fulfill his wish of being a collegiate coach.
Hoke will take a NFL job in California (looking at you Raiders) and then quit immediately, Brandon will re-hire on the spot and the Hoke will actually walk all the way to Ann Arbor just to said, "I told you we would walk to Michigan."

Urban has long been thought to be a possible NFL departure. (see link below)
Urban has a long history of leaving when the going gets tough--as well as lying about his intentions (ex: telling recuits he would not leave Fla, then leaving, then coming back and telling recruits he would stay, then leaving again).
Urban may feel motivated to leave because he took the Ohio job without knowing the extent of Ohio's NCAA penalties. Did Ohio falsely reassure him that there would be no bowl ban or schoarship restrictions?
And what if Ohio's NCAA violations resurface?. Many believe that Ohio's problems did not suddenly vanish overnight with Tressel's departure If half a dozen players were found to be taking illegal money in the last few years, how many others were also? Does anyone seriously believe that none of Tressel's former players are still on the take?
Clearly, Urban is a much higher flight risk and for many reasons.
The UM coaching situation--with mutiple career-long commitments--is as stable as it can get.
I think I remember reading that OSU gave Meyer an out in his contract if previous violations resurfaced. Obviously, OSU is not going to do that unless they feel confident there is not another shoe to drop. Add to that the fact the NCAA and every major sports outlet went through their program with a fine tooth comb and couldn't find anything other than some tats and pocket change from charity events.
So apparently someone told him that we have a coach that is good enough to leave for the NFL. But is not, because he loves Michigan. I'll take that.
THIS IS MICHIGAN
If Hoke has interviewed for a job or if teams have offered or even talked about offering, ESPN would be all over it. There is no way this loser would be breaking the story first...
Meyer said it just look at how he stole all those psu recruits and snitch on Cam Newton
but it is scary that a recruit would actually believe this...Ohio must be doing a full court press! There is probably not one other coach in the major D-1 is LESS of a flight risk than Hoke. Time to start the Urban to the Hospital or Urban to the NFL meme.
He's blue for life.
It's a picture of boobies! Ever open a fifteen-post thread at work and get two different 800x600 pictures of impossibly fake boobs alternating for pages and pages? And then have your boss walk up behind you? Thanks, internet hero, for turning my idle surfing of a sports site into a firing offense!

Urban must be shaking in his boots about Peppers coming Herr of he would go to such lengths.. When peppers visits he will see coach Hoke isn't going anywhere, this is his dream job. Urban really is a fucking serpent.
Hoke is more Pure Michigan than those T.V. ads. This is total hokum in my opinion. Brady Hoke is as entrenched as any coach in the Top 25. Would anyone be surprised if Saban or Meyer, or Brian Kelly jumped to another school or the NFL? Nope. Is Hoke gonna walk to New Jersey to coach Mark Sanchez, or to Oakland to coach that tire fire? Don't think so.
Do I answer my own questions when I get angry? Yes.

"Mind on drugs" PSA campaign
Chatsports got it all wrong. I heard from a good source in Ohio that Hoke's in line to succeed the Pope...
anybody ever think that maybe the kid isn't that into michigan anymore and this is what he is going to use as an excuse? he names ohio state and stanford as his leaders and all of a sudden oh that darn urban meyer must be telling lies? this is almost as annoying as being on one of the buckeyes sites and a kid doesnt pick us everybody saying well the staff cooled on him or he didnt have a commitable offer anyway come on.
Are you saying the kid is outright lying? That doesn't really seem like a smart way to go about telling people you don't like a school.
Except for the other thing. That hurts the most. But the lack of respect hurts the second most.
No i'm saying he is a junior in high school so he is 16-17 years old with a lot of pressure on him so he could be simply making excuses... At that age you tend to have a tough time telling people what they do not want to hear
Maybe this is wishful thinking but I think Hoke will end his career at Michigan. This is his dream job and he is very passionate about Michigan. Just because there are offers on the table doesn't mean he's going to go. I'm sure they will talk about it and clear it all up.
The story is obviously a lie and I'd be surprised if i wasn't Meyer spreading it. That being said, somebody has got to get a handle on these twitter idiots who are tweeting these kids. I just took a look at Peppers' timeline (I don't tweet, I just follow people and somebody I follow mentioned him so I wanted to check it out) and it's clear that the kid is having a rough go of it with Michigan fans right now. I'm not saying that's the reason he wouldn't choose Michigan, but it certainly can't help.
whos to say those are not buckeye fans impersonating Michigan fans
Ironic, considering the ego-monster that is Urban Meyer is FAR more likely to bolt for the NFL (after a 9 day retirement to preserve his health and family life, of course.)
