Football Display Case
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
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?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
thoughtful piece from Jacobi on middle finger lady
populated with such real Michigan fans. I totally fail in this regard as I only have 3 degrees from the school and think there are more important things (like integity, the University and its acedemic programs, etc.) than winning football games.
Oh, and Bo had a losing record against Earl Bruce. I guess by your logic, clearly Bruce emphasized the game more than Bo. But Bo did have an astounding record agains Indiana, so he must have really been emphasizing that one.
This emphasizing the game stuff is so fucking stupid and orginates with Tressel. Under Tressel, OSU won because they had a better game plan and better players. Carr didn't stop emphasizing the game after Cooper was fired, He out-coached Cooper and was out-coached by Tressel.
This is akin to if Tressel had said that OSU had to have more emphasis on team circle-jerks before "the game" people would be attributing his success and our failures on our not emphasizing pre-game team circle-jerks enough.
Better players and better gameplans win games, not hollow platitudes and stupid countdown clocks.
shhhhh... that's apostasy around here.
I think Hoke uses the countdown clocks and the other stuff not to emphasize the game, but rather, to give the team something to focus upon on a daily basis. The OSU game will always be there as a carrot at the end of the season. Emphasizing "The Game" is an effective way to motivate players year round. "Beat Ohio", is a singular unifying galvanizing force at Hoke's disposal for the duration of his career to get players to do more and give more on a daily basis than they otherwise might.
Why did players spend extra time in film study? To beat Ohio
Why did players do all the seven on seven drills in the summer? To beat Ohio
The list could go on and on and on. Brilliant on Hoke's part
Well, I think that they will be too busy preparing to play for Hoke in a BCS BOwl (!!!) to think about it.
Two and Out: the Behind-the-Scenes Story of Arizona Football and the Coach Who Was Deported
Ann Arbor: now the permanent home of the Little Brown Jug
It does seem that he has at least adopted adapting his coaching style to fit his players. I think that made his transition here a little more difficult. His experience at Michigan will make him a better coach in Arizona, I think. Could be wrong, just my opinion.
If you have to ask twice it means that you didn't get it the first time.
But can Rich polish a turd?
And if he can't, could Vince Lombardi?
He can make a turd out of a jugernaut.
Can you break down what we actually need to happen this weekend to make it to a BCS game?
All in for some manball.
I wasn't aware Rodriguez ever coach a juggernaut. If you think Michigan was a juggernaut before he came you better grab a dictionary because Michigan definately does not fit the the definition in any way.
I'm looking forward to seeing his Arizona team play football.
It's tough to make predictions, especially about the future. -- Yogi Berra
How many of the things he in his 48 hours were predicted in the "If Rich Rod Learned Anything At Michigan, He Will..." thread. Nice predictions, MGoBloggers.
Mentioning "Bear Down" with enthusiasm, meeting with a core of former pros and being unblinking yet polite about firing the existing staff are 3 that come to mind.
"the team, the team, the team."
When you hear your ex-girlfriend started dating somebody new (even when you decided to break up with her, it kind of hits your self esteem a little bit...
unless you're already dating a new smokeshow. In which case, you're probably pretty happy for your ex-gf if she's a decent person.
