"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

|3 years 27 weeks ago||The one thing that hurt||
The one thing that hurt Denard more then anything is the tailbacks were so average that they just keyed on him and said lets see what you can do.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||What I don't understand||
I don't understand Hoke saying he thinks teams that practice day in and day out against the spread get blown off the ball when they play pro set teams. Best I can tell the whole damn Big Ten runs a variation of the spread, so it seams he would want to run the spread.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||WTF||
The rest of the Big 10 is laughing at us right now and I bet some of them are Soooo happy not to see Coach Rods offense again. I still say 5 to 10 years from now we will look back with disgust that he is not here.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||If you look at LSU recruiting||
If you look at LSU recruiting class they are all from LA. Can this guy recruit nationally, because 1 the state of Michigan does not have that talent and 2. If I live in another part of the U.S. I'm thinkin Les who
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Rich||
NEVER Miles or Hoke
|3 years 28 weeks ago||That's really sad that some||
That's really sad that some people had a celebrated Coach Rods firing. I have never cheered against Michigan and never will but I hope he wins the whole Damn thing somewhere else and I believe he will. I just don't understand, they said we wanted to go forward but I cannot see how were going anywhere but straight back to where we were. I know one thing the next coach should thank him because he will find this program in alot better shape then Coach Rod. I for the very first time ever feel ashamed of Michigan. WOW I CANNOT BELIEVE I HAD TO TYPE THAT, WOW
|3 years 28 weeks ago||We should have given you one more year||
Thanks coach i know you will go somewhere else and kick ass, you came into a situation that was a lot worse then the fans thought. The talent was gone
|3 years 28 weeks ago||Pat Fitzgerald wow I think||
Pat Fitzgerald wow I think I'm gonna puke
|3 years 28 weeks ago||I'll take him||
I'd take Pelini, Mullen, or Malzhan from Auburn as a wildcard
|3 years 28 weeks ago||I'm white||
Because the old white people with all the money didnt like him or that dag gum run around QB. I only consider Rich here for 2 years that first year was a scratch. Also going into the season I thought we had a 6-6 team, don't you remember the how many wins to save his job posts most said 6 or 7 wins so don't kid yourself and say it was performance based. Please go get a coach like Guz Mahlzon or another innovator, not Les Miles or Brady Hoke PLEASE
|3 years 28 weeks ago||GUZ MALZHAN||
Innovator please, not someone like Hoke or Miles. Also someone who runs the spread, if we lose Denard we are in real trouble. How did it come to this again? No wonder Dominoes sucks
|3 years 32 weeks ago||I live in Kentucky||
and can promise you Randy Shannon is not going to be the DC in Lexington. Head coach maybe but DC no
|3 years 33 weeks ago||People say were not improving||
People say were not improving but at the beginning of the year everyone was saying we had a 6 and 6 team and guess what we have a 6 and 6 team. I think alot of people who really don't like coach Rod want him out now because they see he will soon be successful and after that happens there screwed. I live in Lexington Ky and I thought UK hoops was political but I think we now have taken the cake.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Look at West Virgina||
When he was there and they DOMINATED there recruiting classes were usually ranked in the 30 to 40 range. That is the great thing about his system he doesnt need a top ten recruiting class to be competitive
|3 years 33 weeks ago||LOID||
That was dead on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
|3 years 33 weeks ago||APP ST||
I can't belive someone said the Michigan team App St beat would kill out team that we will have back next year. How did App St beat us? oh it was that damn running quarterback
|3 years 33 weeks ago||wow||
Great Harbaugh and three yards and a cloud of dust without the top notch talent we used to have sounds AWESOME! I mean I knew that spread stuff only worked in the Big East,SEC, Big12 and Pac 10. I am AMAZED by the amount of people who think this is a good idea. The worst part is Harbaugh comes into a great situation with a team that is about to blow up anyway and then people think he''s brilliant. Coach Rod if you do leave you have to promise to not coach in the big 10 because I cannot take you kicking our ass every year.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||SFBLUE||
Agreed when he was hired he is and was one of the top 10 coaches in America.
Those who stay will be champions the rest of ya go to hell
|3 years 33 weeks ago||BRCE||
What a schmuck
|3 years 33 weeks ago||icefins22||
Totally agree, most people said we would be 6and 6 this year and guess what, we are 7 and 5 and I believe in Rich Rod now more than I did the day we hired him. I hope we don't let him go and if we do I pray that we don't get Harbaugh whos defense SUCKED last year but huh he gets a new d cordinator and the PAC 10 sucks and all the sudden he's BO. Put there career numbers side by side and you tell me who you think is better. Another thing I like is running QBs don't go to the NFL early very often.
|3 years 33 weeks ago||Did he say that||
|3 years 33 weeks ago||funny||
Did he say that rebuilding a West Virginia team was an easier job then rebuilding Michigan, is he retarded. The West Virginia teams Rich had were Great teams that blew out teams in BCS gamesand if we give him two more years I think we will see the same here. Recruiting is not a game on rivals you choose guys for your system. 2003 rivals recruiting rankings Michigan 17th West Virginia 46th would you like to compare the performance of those two classes over 4 years? I had heard ( and correct me if I'm wrong) that our team GPA was the highest it has been in years. Come on guys this guy did not forget how to coach he just needs time. I think he deserves at least two more years. Bobby Bowden said he was one of the top five offensive minds he had ever been around. The problem he didnt kiss everyones ass and I would be the first to want him gone if he did. I will really be disappointed if we screw this up and let him go. Jim Harbaugh are you kidding me, please GOD tell me thats a joke. Every coach should get to see his first full recruiting class through and then if he sucks can him. PS before the year everyone was saying we had a 6 and 6 six team what has changed
