"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
Harbaugh will flip him back Blue
On to the next one.
Triple Post. Derp
Triple Post. Super Derp.
Did the quashing of the JoePa health rumors turn the tide?
Those aren't rumors. People don't live forever, and that guy has one foot in the grave.
in the grave.
When AZ met with Joe Pa they talked for 2 hours. Not a word about football. Joe Pa did his little " Here is my personal phone number. Only use it when you want to play for Penn State".
I am shattered that a young man from my home town committed else where. AZ also told his HC that the RR rumors didn't play a factor. He just felt comfortable at PSU.
On to the next recruit.
No worries, it isn't like he grew up a huge michigan fan and visited for nearly every home game or anything.
Coaching limbo claims another.
there's no coaching uncertainty with an 84 year old head coach.......
...but the way the "Michigan Man" faction has behaved over the last few years, I could see those warm feelings towards us growing cool over time.
Or maybe he just didn't want to play for a coach who knows absolutely nothing about defense b
He clearly needs to hire you.
in a few years. Michigan can't say the same.
I think if Harbaugh is brought in, Zettel will return.
Or, he just saw/felt something at PSU that seemed to fit. Its not like he's picking Tuscaloosa State over UMich, PSU has a lot of good things to offer and another storied and competitive program. Happy trails.
He isn't going anywhere unless something happens to JoePa. Harbaugh coming would have zero impact, unfortunately.
Maybe the kid doesnt like RR..
how about 'continuing to breathe uncertainty'
Is it too late to charge him for coming to the games?
I like it. It is one of my favorites.
Oh Benke, whining about his artwork again.
Maybe three of the worst defenses in school history had something to do with this? If Zettel really cared about "coaching limbo," do you honestly think after taking over a year in the recruitment process that he would be unable to wait one more week?
Remind me again which others were claimed by coaching limbo?
If Walls wanted coaching certainty, he wouldn't be going to Cal.
Is Tedford for sure going to be there next year? Yes. By your logic probably half the coaches would be "uncertain". Anybody that has had a couple bad seasons. This is the kid that was recruiting for Michigan in the summer.
Hopefully these educated students are looking further than just if the coach will be there the next year.
That doesn't fit the blame-game/excuse machine that is the Army of Rich Rodriguez supporters.
Everybody is throwing blame and making excuses regardless of which side you're on. This M shaped firing squad has proven to be detrimental to our success on the recruiting trail.
So, if most kids are uncertain about who the coach will be for a team the following year and they still commit, doesn't that suggest that they are factoring in other things?
but that's not what I'm getting at. I said that Tedford is back for sure next year and that is a big difference from what we have here. Nobody knows if RR is back and that changes peoples minds, If he was a heavy Michigan lean and then nothing changed except for uncertainty of the coach, what else could it be? They are still located in AA at last check, they still led even when they weren't winning every week, and the depth chart looks even more inviting now than before. And if you say that it was al Cal making the difference, Tedford must be the ultimate recruiter because that is quite a lot of ground to make up.
And who knows how many other guys eliminated us weeks ago due to the coaching situation.
1. Dee Hart hasn't decommitted yet.
2. Your example shows what recruits do when they aren't sure who the coach is going to be. They wait.
3. Any other guys who have eliminated us that we don't know about weren't very serious about us to begin with.
Said he will still look even if RR returns. I don't think he's coming.
He hasn't decommitted yet, and the other place he was looking was Florida. Since Florida is picking up a new coach themselves, I think he IS coming.
Or, he's looking to see what it looks like Mucshamp will be doing with the program. If I was a recruit, I'd certainly be intrigued to see what that guy could do with a HC stop and a recruiting platform like Florida. Ideally a strong bowl performance and some outreach from a bunch of smart players at Michigan who look like they're having a heck of a good time will be enough to make that less appealing though.
The kid isn't stupid. He sees all this garbage out there, including on this board. He knows that a so-so season next year with RR could mean he gets stuck with another coach. Bama has no such coaching instability.
The guy asked about kids that we lost due to the coaching situation. So yes, this example shows what happens with the coaching situation is in the air and I will use it. I don't think Dee is gone, but he wouldn't be a question mark if DB came out after the Purdue or Illinois game and said RR is our coach.
And I don't know why people cannot read full posts before responding to said post. Guys that "we don't know about"? Where did I mention that? I said kids eliminated us weeks ago (ie. October, November and December) and who knows how many of them did that due to the coaching situation. Since these kids usually don't come out and say, "Yeah I will not go to that school because they're HC is up in the air" you're left to wonder.
Can you see him on January 4th announcing "This coach can't recruit".
is not helping matters.
Here is David Brandon's list of accomplishments since becoming the AD:
1. Scheduled a night game (Hooray! What an idea!)
2. Played hockey outdoors (Hooray! Only 10 years after MSU started the trend)
When Michigan fans reject the chance to play at Michigan (Zettel), it makes you wonder how easy it will be for an alum (Harbaugh) who is already critical of how Michigan athletics operate to reject a job offer.
with that whine...geez...
So what you're saying is, Harbuagh isn't coming here due to the coaching uncertainty.
Shouldn't his username be "1/3rd of B10 or Bust"?
How the hell are you not banned at -600? How can you post with negative points? Sigh.
What up Mike. Long time no see.
What about FuManBlue? He's at -5000 or so. Besides, how could you get back into positive territory without posting?
He knows that he earned virtually his entire negative score from his meltdown during the football season. A repenting sinner is welcome on MGoBlog; an assclown with no desire to change is not.
