at least it's not just us?

I'm scared to listen.
If I don't listen to it, maybe it doesn't exist.
Think he'll pull out the old "fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, you you're cool. Peace I'm out!"? It'd be a lot cooler if he did.
"Nobody on this coaching staff cheated..." (LONG PAUSE)..."the university of a day's work." That was awkward.
Aw, fiddlesticks. That doesn't sound promising.
Working hard and doing your best is a given when you are the head coach at any university, let alone getting paid millions to coach at U-M.
we played a game today?
They made plays, we didn't.
Got behind, we pressed alittle bit.
Couldn't get D off of field.
Can't kick field goals.
Couldn't bounce back.
Didn't finish drives.
Disappointed, Frustrated. Etc...
In other words.....the usual.
Did you actually listen to the presser? Or is this a mashup of the Wisconsin and OSU pressers?
He forgot the fact that the whole staff got out coached. Always blaming everyone else. I hope DB had someone run all of RR's papers through the copy machine before he shreds them.
you sir are absolutely correct. all in, all share the responsibility.
"Do you think you'll be back next year?"
RR- "You're asking the wrong person" (in sad panda voice)
Well the way the question was phrased (do YOU think you will be back next year) I doubt DB would have more insight unless he can read minds, in which case, in DB we trust. That being said, we all know why he didn't comment.
Interesting, the press conference still isn't on MGoBlue dot com....
And more rabble rabble rabble.... We didn't play well... Rabble... We didn't tackle...
"you need to be able to make that FG right there"
Yes true, but your team hasn't all f'ing year, you are down by 17 so why try? WHY? WHY? WHY?
Agreed; but I wouldn't renew the scholarships of the kickers (except Hagerup).
It was 4th and 4. 1. Everyone on Earth knows we can't kick a FG. 2. We should have been able to get 4 fn yards. 3. We were down, and had no momentum, we needed a touch.
He should have went for it.
Because in that situation you take the points. I would wager that there are at least a dozen people on this board that could have hit that FG.
This was what really put me over the edge today. What a poor decision at a critical moment.
I thought his comments with regards to recruiting were very interesting.
Said he thought his staff performed excellently to keep from having any decommits with everything swirling around.
A picture is worth a thousand words and a $2.5 million buy-out...
Don't be a dick
your Zima buzz is wearing off.
To me that was the biggest disappointment. A veteran O line and nobody but DRob could get any yards on the ground. Running V Smith on first down = Lloyd thowing short of the sticks on 3rd down. Do. Not. Want.
i appreciate when he says the players have worked incredibly hard.
i understand when he says true freshman make mistakes, and that they need an offseason to grow into their roles.
i believe him when he says he didn't expect this result today, and i agree when he says our players did not execute today.
but i am stunned that as the coach he accepted no responsibility for the loss. not once does he ever say we were outcoached or outprepared for today's game. after watching that much poor execution (especially on fundamentals like the defense setting up on the line of scrimmage) there's no way the players should shoulder all the burden for that terrible loss.
regardless of the team's performance, i have never questioned RR's integrity and have always felt he carries himself as deserving of the "michigan man" moniker. but this honestly bothered me about the post-game interview.
but with what is hanging over his head (if he doesn't already know), why would he make a public admission about getting out coached having a whole month to prepare?
No speed option with DROB and Smith is reason enough to get the axe at this point. I can't believe it wasn't utilized ONE TIME in three years.
I believe Tate did it once against Indiana last year, and it got tipped and the Hoosiers recovered it..... /s
I know V Smith is a tough little shit, but damn can someone else get a shot a playing RB. Someone who can turn the corner and with a little more strength. I love the kids heart, but other RB should of had more touches. I know Shaw had some towards the end and it looked like an extra burst of speed.
Fitz, Hopkins, Shaw. You gotta give someone else a shot
When coaches take "blame" for loss, isn't that being just a touch dishonest?
If the team loses, it is ALWAYS the coaches fault. When the team wins, its ALWAYS the players efforts. It is plain and simple. Been that way before my daddy, and his daddy and his daddy and Fielding Yost too.
Peace up, A town down. que the synthesizer.
does anyone on this board no how to spell cue?
Lewan getting a hug from Mike Barwis.
Did anyone notice that on the same drive we missed the fg, that we ran the same stupid ass bubble screen play. Back to back. It didn't work to the right, why not try the left. The sad thing about is that the same LB sniffed it out on both sides. WOW, good call OC!
Those 2 plays and the missed FG are what caused me to go over the edge....
I've successfully transitioned from whine to wine. Much better now.
I'm just an ole geezer who has been following the Maize & Blue for over 65 years. I've turned the TV set off more this year than ever. But we've suffered letdowns before, and I am in hopes that with a new staff we can bring in some guys who can "stuff" the opposition. That Miss. State was one whale of a team, and their young defensive coordinator was super. I believe the Bulldogs could give anyone a tough ballgame, and look out for them in 2011!!! Did you know that adversity is the pathway to peace? We don't want peace, but we want to overcome our opponents....and we will!! GO BLUE!!!
I wanted it to work out so much, I fought for so long, but... It's over. We can only hope, on this day, that Jim Harbaugh excepts the job to be the new head coach at the University of Michigan.
It seems as though RR doesn't think he'll be retained as the coach. You can just tell by the way he answers the question.
