|5 years 14 weeks ago||Great job!||
That is the best I've seen in a long long while!
|5 years 32 weeks ago||A typical||
political assination. The "club" didn't want RR playing in their sand box. As I've said before, the biggest mistake RR made was leaving WVA. He could have been the Bo of the university of WVA. Good luck RR, I'll be rooting for you.
|5 years 34 weeks ago||Over||
your head Sal. Michigan Football would never have treated any coach the way RR was treated if the two people that built the modern day program were still around. Bo and Canham. RR is caught in a POLITICAL VACUUM. Like I said before, THE BIGGEST MISTAKE RR MADE WAS LEAVING WVA TO COACH MICHIGAN !!! SEE YA!
|5 years 34 weeks ago||+1 to you!!! RR's biggest mistake||
since arriving here at M was leaving WVA! This man had EVERYTHING going for him there. He left it all for the mystification of the block M and what did he receive from the very beginning? I'll tell you what! A bunch of BULL SHIT from people trying to fill the VOID that BO left! As a so-called "Walmart" Wolverine for over 40 years it saddens me to see RR attacked by M fans that in most cases KNOW NOTHING ABOUT FOOTBALL OTHER THEN WINS AND LOSSES.
My home is a "house divided" w/green and white, it may become one after watching this continued character assasination of RR.
It's not about the wins or losses. Do you really think RR would have been treated the way he has if Bo or Canham were still around? NOT NOT NOT!!!
|5 years 38 weeks ago||RR has received||
the SHAFT since his arrival, both from our great Detroit media and our fair weather fan base. All I can say is that it is a damn shame. RR never stood a chance, I for one and as a coach hopes DB will give him another year, he deserves it. The worst thing RR has done since he arrived at M is leave West Virgina!
|5 years 42 weeks ago||You can hire or||
fire all you want it will do no good. We need the young guys to get experience and RR to keep recruiting quality players for D. Think about this, if we had an average defense we would be undeafeated!
|5 years 42 weeks ago||Instead of constantly firing RR why||
don't we take a look at the situation from his point of view? 1). Why don't I have any juniors or seniors capable of starting on d? 2). Why are there no semi competent starters on d? 3). If my d was average or a little better then average we would be undefeated. 4). Why can't the arm chair coaches read the situation I was placed in, and recognize what steps I'm taking to remedy this situation? 5). After building a great winning program at WV why did I come to Michigan and listen to all this BS from people who know little to nothing about coaching college D1 football. 6). I didn't know there were so many fair weather fans an M.
I just wish people would shut up and let this program take its course to the winning tradition again!
Let the negs begin, but please just SHUT UP about firing RR!
|5 years 44 weeks ago||Agree||
Man the out of bounds kicks were the real killers! We made it easy for Iowa to add points at critical spots in the game.
|5 years 44 weeks ago||Ain't the coaches!||
I was at the game last week. I sat in section 18 row 23 before the game watching the field goal kicker make 45 yard attempts before the game. The place kickers were booting the ball up the field in a normal fashion.
The issue seems to be that they cannot take the pressure during the game. It's like RR said, they do it in practice but during the game it is a dirrerent situation! Like turning a light switch on and off.
|5 years 46 weeks ago||Dee going blue||
Was listening to Rivals on Sirius this morning. Ferrall said the inside word is, is that Dee is going to play at the BIG HOUSE! Hope it's true.

A friend of mine had 4 tickets for sale, I sent him a link to this thread, hopefully he still has them and will get a hold of you.
Good luck and I hope your family has a great time at the game!
|5 years 49 weeks ago||Injuries matter||
I'm not a football coach, I coach hockey but I can tell you that any injury this team suffers to a starter or his backup is critical. RR is coaching his way thru and out of a "limited" depth situation. Take this win, be happy and hope other players emerge to fill positions of need in the near future. GERG is playing musical players with his D, there are good players in waiting they just need game experience. Be patient this team will do much better then last IF it stays healthy.
As a coach I would rather learn about my players abilities with a non-conference win then a conference loss.
|5 years 50 weeks ago||You my friend||
|5 years 51 weeks ago||Carvin's coach said||
he was a "player"! RR and GERG must agree. Johnson looks like a GREAT pickup! To his coach, if your out there thank you!
|5 years 51 weeks ago||RR had every right||
to assume there was talent behind the Henne / Hart / everyone else talent level being an outsider, after all this is MICHIGAN football! For those who have been watching Michigan Football over the years should have noticed that very rarely did "back ups" play during several years prior to RR being hired. I remember Bo and MO would substitute players when the game was "in hand" to give them them the experience they needed when it was their turn to be the #1 guy. That didn't seem to happen much under Carr. The hockey equivalent would be to have your 1st line play the whole game, every game. Please don't get me wrong I'm not bashing Carr just pointing out my observations.
Anyhow I think this team is going to surprise us! GO BLUE!
|6 years 2 weeks ago||There really are direct comparisons.||
Bo was hired from the "outside" by Canham, he inherited a great group of players that fit his system. RR did not. Bo did not receive the flack that RR did when he was hired about not being a Michigan Man. Bo was allowed to coach unobstructed, he was a tremendous coach and built the phenomenon that is Michigan football today. RR needed to rebuild this team to fit his system, it makes no matter that players left, they left under Bo’s first year also.
RR will win also, he has a proven record at the D1 level, just as Bo did RR will bring back Michigan to its glory. Rebuilding doesn’t happen in a season, it could and will take RR several years. I’m not a blind follower, but I will give RR his due. We shall see, the future years of MIchigan football depend on RR 's success!
|6 years 2 weeks ago||Using your theory,||
Bo shouldn't have had the opportunity to coach at Michigan. The man that blessed us with over 40 years of the MIchigan winning tradition would never have been!
I think you are wrong, Michigan needed the change, some are still not ready for it.
|6 years 3 weeks ago||It appears to me that||
If WVU continued to follow the previous practice of practice, then it would seem the new incoming coach (Stewart) would also be unaware of the rules. Do we actually think for one minute that Stewart would knowingly break the rules as a newly crowned HC? For anyone to insinuate that RR is a cheat is a huge reach. It appears that these so-called rules are arbitrary and capricious at best. The NCAA should clean them up before punishing anyone. I think we need to keep this in perspective; these charges are about stretching, not about buying athletes vehicles and other goodies. This is ridiculous in my opinion.
|6 years 4 weeks ago||NCAA||
Isn't that an NCAA violation according to the fish wrapper FP.
|6 years 4 weeks ago||Glasses||
The finishing touch would be to have RR in Bo glasses!
|6 years 9 weeks ago||Conway in #1||
I think this Conway kid is going to be a big surprise!
|6 years 10 weeks ago||Sorry guys||
This story had me in tears. I think we all need to remember that it is not always about wins and loses. Life is short and what RR did for that family will help comfort them for the rest of their lives. Little David had a little piece of Michigan Football before his passing thanks to RR his wife and several Michigan men.
Wins are a good thing though.

Oh how I like Nebraska fans! Maybe we can tag team tOSU!
|6 years 15 weeks ago||MT a Michigan Man?||
I've watched M football for 40 years, MT is NOT a Michigan Man in the sense of Bo‘s model! If he was we would not be addressing this RR bashing. Trent should be banished from the M tent! What makes it worse is that he brought a former coach into his distasteful argument and misquoted him to address his grievance.
Trent should not go away mad, he should just go away.
|6 years 19 weeks ago||More politics?||
In my opinion this is getting beyond the norm. It appears there is a strong political movement to 1). Terminate RR, or 2). Give a black eye to Michigan Football, or 3). Both of the above.
Something smells fishy. I may be wrong but I don't think so.
|6 years 19 weeks ago||I'll be there to see Brock lead the team out!||
This is what the University of Michigan is all about! People helping people.
Hail to the Victors!
|6 years 20 weeks ago||DG looks||
DG looks really good in that MICHIGAN uniform! I've seen him play for Inkster, their uniforms didn't do him justice!
|6 years 24 weeks ago||Great bang for the buck||
I work for Ford in engineering, Product Development. You will not be sorry if you buy a Focus, as with any vehicle make sure you change the oil and fluids as recommended and it will last you for years!
Good luck no matter what vehicle you purchase, I hope it will be domestic though.
|6 years 24 weeks ago||Money?||
Just as our government, the NCAA has become an agency to collect money and provide a organization to boost peoples egos.
Originally yes, now no.
|6 years 26 weeks ago||Waste of time for the NCAA, if not it should rewrite its bylaws||
This whole NCAA thing is about picking fly shit out of pepper!
I've read the allegations, pretty damn weak and foolish!
I guess that is what helps justify having an NCAA.
