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?
I'm more excited about this hire after watching this video.

"It's special how the real true people hang together. And if you don't support the program you're not a true Michigan guy. It's that simple." - Gary Moeller
He's already learned the coach speak here. "At the end of the day this is Michigan."
Love it, seems like a great hire and the enthusiasm he shows in just that video validates it to me.
His personality, his directness, his genuine enthusiasm and warmth. He's going to fit with this coaching staff and connect with recruits in a big way.
How many times have you been on the freeway and had someone fly by you at 100 mph then end up 2 cars ahead of you at the off ramp? What's the point? -Mark Harmon
Interview. His genuine excitment had me smiling at the screen. I'm happy as shit for this guy!

haha me too. I found myself smiling and then being a bit embarassed when my fiance asked what i was smiling about.
what if we had jerry m. and roy....? A whole lot of profit?
3-3-5 til the day I die y'all
Yep, just like everyone else has said already, I'll echo it - really nice interview, charisma & genuine enthusiasm are a go with this one. Massive approval at this point. Looks like a great fit.
Sorry, not enough patience.
Great hire! Anyone know what territory he's gonna have? Take over for Montgomery? Or shuffling assignments?
All of these great hires are making me almost forget about Gerg. Almost...
with the million dollar smile. Kids are going to relate to him and be drawn to him I'm sure.
Michigan fans are not made. They are born!
Who is this Gerg you speak of?
He traded in stuffed beaver and sundries. I'm surprised anyone remembers him.
Edit: Welcome Welcome Home, Roy Manning!
I was grinning by the end of that video - genuine enthusiasm always shines through.
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
Very humble and thankful guy . Glad to have high character coaches like him!
#Go Blue !!!!!
Sort of kidding. Love this guy.
If that doesn't get you excited about this higher I don't know what does.
This lower is way better of a higher.
Can you take me high enough? To fly me over yesterday...
"Everybody thinks of changing humanity, but nobody thinks of changing himself." - Leo Tolstoy
Loving this hire more and more. His attitude and gratefulness for having this opportunity is awesome and he just exudes Michigan. I can't wait for this season to start!
After everything I've seen on the guy, including the two videos below, this seems like a slam dunk hire.
After watching these videos, I am now worried about losing Roy to the NFL - as a player!
C Wood comes back with the same enthusiasm. Hopefully!!
Its called a royale with cheese
Gosh all I could think about after the first minute was how many times he said you know what I mean... you know what I mean.
- Great coach though, super excited. Looks like he'll bring ever more passion to the coaching staff.
- Go Blue -
I'm kidding, but I LOVE this interview...he's going to make a HUGE impact on this team. Can't wait to see COACH Manning getting after it. Jake Ryan, Cam Gordon, Frank Clark, Brennen Beyer, Mario Ojemudia, etc. are all in for a treat.
“True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise — the other, loyalty.”
Dang. I'm smiling ear to ear watching this video. I couldn't be happier for Roy - a Michigan man - to be coaching at our school. Heartfelt welcome to him. Go Blue!!
That was the sound of a guy who is genuinely excited, and has a real love for the University of Michigan. Great guy. Great interview.

I was wondering about why get a lb to replce the dl coach. This interview sure does make this guy seem special. Like many I had a pretty big smile just watching it.
How can you kill that which has no life
You can tell he's a quality guy. He is direct, respectful, anwsers questions clearly, he's excited and enthusiastic, and he's got a great smile. All good qualities. And, it doesn't hurt that he played here and played in the NFL too. I think he'll do just fine.
Strength equipment is expensive and guarantees you nothing. A strong will is free and can give you everything you want.
Roy looks like he could suit up right now and play the weak side.
with his character and love for the school,he will do very well. Him and Mike Hart will make a damn good duo on the recruting front in a couple of years.
I be like Dang, what an awesome guy. Think he's going to connect with Jake Ryan? I do. Another high character, high energy Michigan man. God bless you, Brady Hoke!
"Football is happening at Michigan... we have that savoir faire." Dhani Jones
I think Mr. Manning is going to be awesome during his time at Michigan and recruits are going to love this guy.
"The goal, the expectation of this program is the Big Ten Championship"
What a terrific young man. (Yes, I join the smile-watching-the-video brigade. My cheeks are still a-blush with smile.)
Talk about an infectious smile.
In an interview with Sam Webb that was broadcast earlier this morning on WTKA, Manning specifically mentioned Rich Rodriguez as playing a major role in his pursuit of the coaching profession. Manning said that after he was cut by the NFL he came back to Ann Arbor to train, and he said that he talked to RR numerous times about coaching and that Rich was extremely helpful, informative, and encouraging. WTKA will probably have the podcast of the interview segment by the end of the day.
to the Michigan coaching staff! Welcome home Coach Manning
