|2 days 13 hours ago||What is your take on beating||
What is your take on beating someone "handily"??? Because a 17-9 victory is nothing close to handily in most books.
EDIT: As far as Iowa getting ranked they were most likely in the CFP top 30. Because they did just get ranked this past week by the Coaches and the Associated Press. My guess is they probably just missed being ranked by the committee. Their 1 point loss to NDST is probably what is holding them back from being ranked, because in the last 3 weeks they beat 2 ranked teams.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Yeah man, I am with you.||
Yeah man, I am with you. Everyone is trying to make it too complicated by thinking that the CFP wants this and that but they can't do this and that at the same time.
People are repeating it but it doesn't seem like anyone understands. They said the margin between Michigan and Washington is razor thin... the only logical conclusion is that if Washington loses then we are in the playoffs.
The committee is going for the 4 best teams. I truly believe that this year. I don't think they care who the hell is a conference champion. So if Wisconsin wins and Washington loses then Michigan will be in because they believe we are 1 of the 4 best. Who cares that Wisconsin has the title? To the committee we are 1 of the 4 best.. not a team who lost to Michigan and Ohio State already. Same with Penn State it just doesn't seem like they hold them very highly. Maybe that will change if Penn State blows out Wisconsin, but I think if they win by a little it won't matter that much. Same goes for Colorado.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Yes, this is why I think it||
Yes, this is why I think it more important that Wisconsin beats Penn State. Wiconsin lost to Michigan and Ohio State, so the commitee might look at that as you already played 2 of the current 4 playoff teams and lost. Penn State if they won should get the nod over us since they beat Ohio State and are BIG Ten Champs.
Colorado over Washington
Wisconsin over Penn State
and we are in I think.

|7 weeks 4 days ago||Quarterback & Wide Receiver||
I think Wilton will also be our starter next year after a long off season battle with O'Korn and Peters. I feel like Shane will transfer and maybe Alex Malzone also.
That gives us:
This is not bad at all. We will have 2 hand picked Harbaugh guys on the roster and what I think is a very solid back-up in O'Korn.
Wide Receiver is a bit of an unknown, but we have guys out there getting experience running around every game at least. We bring back Grant Perry which is good.
The real question is who we bring in this years recruiting class. Hopefully they will be ready to go type of players and I'm praying 1-2 can enroll in the Spring.
Peoples-Jones and Nico Collins is what we will really need this year after losing Darboh and Chesson. If we can get them and get them in early then I won't have many worries. It would also be huge if Harris or Ways could step up finally.
If we can get something along these lines then I think everything will be pretty good through the air next year. I definitely believe Speight can really take a huge step forward next year and he just needs the receiver spot to reload.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||From what I have heard, the||
From what I have heard, the coaches really like what they have seen out of Ulizio and Runyan Jr, so don't be surprised if one of them take the starting right guard or tackle spot next year.
Elite Freshmen & Owenu might alter this some.
Cole coming back will be HUGE for our offensive line. Hopefully, Newsome will be at least be healthy by Spring and doing everything he can do minus full contact. IMO if these 2 things can happen then we will be in good shape.
I still think it will be 2018 or 2019 when we can say our Offensive line is truly elite.

Yeah, I just don't see it unless he really blows up!! But, the only thing with that is he plays Nose Tackle and isn't supposed to be a penetrator like Mike Martin who got noticed all of the time but more like a space eater who kinda goes unknown. Just because he will be invisible at times doesn't mean he isn't extremely valuable though.
For a guy who played some as a freshman and didn't acquire a lot of stats I doubt he leaves for the NFL after his first whole season. AND he might not even be the starter after Ryan Glasgow cemented his name at that position this past year.
IMHO.. Mone will be back in 2017 as a Red-Shirt Junior and if his play warrants it he will leave after that..not much suggests otherwise besides hype and we all know how that has been the past couple years..

I think this is overblown some. Just wait and see who steps up this year.
With Elliot backing up Mone.
Could return 3 starters on the oline for 2017 which is really good for most teams and you can't forget about Dawson.
Let's just see what happens but I am not at all worried. Kids will step up and you have to remember Harbaugh.
If we can land Hill and Long... to go with Cole..Kinnel..Peppers (2 short for NFL until 2018) and still have guys that redshirted this year. Everything will work out.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||Da'Mario Jones||
Either I missed it or it hasn't been talked about, but Da'Mario Jones might be on the way out with the like of the Bars, Gant, Strobel group. He hasn't really played much and I don't think he got redshirted.. so maybe he looks for playing time somewhere else? I think he could transfer and redshirt a year then play one more year at another school if I'm not mistaken.
I just don't see him passing up Chesson and Darboh. I mean, Grant Perry and a couple others have already passed him. So playing time for him seems very distant.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||This is in response to Henry||
This is in response to Henry entering the draft. Gave Harbaugh another spot for a recruit. It was believed he was most likley going to stay, but with the way his season went, etc it was Henry's best option to head for the NFL (I don't blame him at all).
This will most likely give Harbaugh the option to accept a Quinn Nordin committment. It would have been hard to squeeze in a scholly for a kicker when we had so many other positions with big time players wanting to join. So now we have room.
Gary, Long, Jones, Hill, Allen, Nordin, Raulerson/Murphy/Dline or LB

You know what it is crazy to me? That this is the first post on the board since 2am. That was a drought.
|48 weeks 3 days ago||Not Many!!||
Ahh, I would have to go with what other posters have already said.
Playing Grant Perry against Utah. It was the season openor against a good team at their stadium. Playing a freshman WR in your very first game, with a QB who had only been there a month.. Just didn't make sense.
Jabrill probably had his hands full against Utah... but giving him some hand offs would probably have been safer than playing Grant Perry. Jabrill would have been the difference maker.
If we don't play Grant Perry and utilize Peppers in the Utah game we probably come away with a close win. Hindsight is 20/20 though.
MAX PROTECT in the last punt against State.. Or maybe just throw up a Hail Mary and leave state with one play.
Idk, really there isn't much because with both of those things you really didn't argue with the call until it went bad for us. I actually was comfortable punting the ball..had confidence..until I saw the gunner split wide.

Yes, I was thinking that also. It looks like he needs to hit the squat rack harder. He doesn't go down AS easy as Green, but I think if he was stronger in the lower body he would break more tackles and churn out a bunch more yards.
Hopefully, if we land him, he will be able to enroll early and get started in the strength and conditioning program. Then having him through spring practices would be HUGE considering our situation at running back.

Like I said though, I'm no expert and that is why I am asking you guys to give me your thoughts on him.. Maybe throw out a comparison to who you think he reminds you of in college.

|51 weeks 3 days ago||Award Winner.||
Yeah, I am a huge fan of McCaffrey and really hope we land his brother in the 2017 recruiting class. It is very hard to argue against him winning this award, BUT Jabrill plays all of the same positions he does on Special Teams and Offense (QB, WR, RB) AND STARTS ON DEFENSE. So while McCaffrey is very very deserving of this award.. I think Jabrill deserves it just as much. It's too bad they couldn't both win.
|51 weeks 4 days ago||Just so everyone knows that||
Just so everyone knows that voting ends at 11:59pm tonight, so let's vote all day and win this for Jabrill.
Fuck Ole Miss.
|51 weeks 4 days ago||My Answer.||
8 - Team Playoff
5 - P5 Conference Champions (Pac12, Big10, Sec, Big12, Acc)
3 - At Large Teams
You should have to be a conference champion to claim a spot.. to me that only makes sense. Then you have 3 At Large teams, so you can get your Notre Dame's, Houstons, Memphis type teams in when they're doing good.
One rule would be that you can't have more than 2 teams from the same conference in the playoffs.. So that keeps everything fair and the commitee can't put more SEC teams in just because SEC.

Good points. Nothing to argue with. I do think I have seen some of those times you are talking about, but one thing to note is that everyone has some of them on here, and they along with WD get negged and that is apporpriate.
I guess, the thing I was trying to point out was the people who Neg him all of the time on everything. I mean there has been some posts he was negged when he had done nothing at all wrong.. He could post a PosBang Thread when Michigan wins a National Title and it would have a couple downvotes.. It is just stupid. People will grow up sooner or later I guess.
|1 year 1 day ago||This is actually true.. I||
This is actually true..
I follow the blog daily for the most part and I don't really care to talk about certain posters, etc. It's not that I am a fan of WD or against him. I think he adds useful stuff to this blog and contributes well for Michigan fans. I've never stuck up for him, but I haven't been apart of the group that makes fun or negs him all of the time. You could say, I don't really care enough about who is saying what and how old they are, etc.. but it's kinda getting tiring to see..
My reason for commenting to your post though is that there IS a few people (maybe more) that consistently neg or make fun of WD... It's really immature if you ask me. Just to think there is someone on here that cares enough to neg WD for almost no reason everytime is just ignorant and laughable. I have never spoken up about this because it almost seems weird to defend some poster on a free blog about Michigan sports.. like I said though it's kinda tiring..even for someone who doesn't care that much.
I thought since the conversation was heading in this direction I would finally say something and hope people realize how dumb they're acting.. who cares WD loves to make SuperGuides or loves to post about the athletic wear.. that's his thing.. why neg him all of the time?? If anything you have a kid here who loves Michigan and loves to come here and talk about Michigan. Why keep on him and try to make him feel less... not only is it childish, but it's embarrassing. Just let the kid post.. read his shit or don't, but don't neg him just becasuse... I think this is why we are seeing WD snap on people a little more often now. Someone who loves Michigan this much should feel a little more respected than how some people treat him on here.
Also I didn't mean to drag this all out and make it look like I was directing this at you. It was just a good spot to make this comment.
Okay.. back to not giving a damn.

If he can handle it. THEN, YES!!
He showed in ONE play that other teams HAVE to account for him in the offensive backfield. There is NOT one person on our team that has showed that kind of burst coming out of the backfield. We need someone who can create in space and be too quick for opponets in small spaces. Jabrill can do that for us. He needs 6-10 offensive plays a game. I have no idea why he didn't get more snaps against State.
Yes, more chance for injury, etc. We need him though. Definitely against Ohio State. I could almost guarantee that 6-10 snaps wouldn't diminish his stamina for play on the defensive side. He just seems like way too good of athlete who is primed for play like that.

Putting these next two weekends aside... when I look at those stats and think about how Indiana played Ohio State..that game really scares me. We can't get in a scoring match. We will lose. Maryland was ranked in the 100's I believe in defense, and we didn't really blow them back to say the least.
Indiana has a comparable defense, but their offense might actually score more points then we want and that game might turn into a barn burner.
Even though stats make it look good for us, I believe we are in for a lot of good games this year.

I enjoyed seeing another W on the board, but I wasn't very giddy on how we played. Yes, it was much better than previous years where this might have been 14-14 going into half time. I understand that. I just had higher hopes playing such weak team. We have a 5th Senior quarterback, a defense that is loaded with experienced players. I thought we would steam roll UNLV by 5-6 touchdowns. That wasn't the case. We did still play a decent ball game as it didn't take much to beat this team, but that's all we did. Did just enough to win and didn't feel under pressure. It's hard to explain how I feel I guess. I thought we would be more dominant.. If you look on paper it seems like we beat them down, but while watching the game it felt like there was still A TON that needs to be improved.

I played against benton harbor every year since youth "rocket" football. I know we're focusing on the high school squad, but I don't know if any coach of any caliber can get those boys to play.
They have an insane amount of talent around there, but none of them care about football enough. Yes, there will be a couple players but not nearly enough.
Okay, so maybe I went to far by saying no coach of any caliber, but it's going to be very tough. They have barely been fielding a team the past 7 years. Who ever gets in there just needs to get kids to come out and play. They don't seem to be very interested over there. I know these kids dont want to play for a losing team, but one of the reasons they are losing is because a lot of the kids that have talent arent playing!!
Corey Malone-Hatcher plays in the same division as Benton Harbor...Little fun fact I remembered while typing.
We had a coach go there from my school...One Hell of a coach. I considered him the best that has taught me, but the kids didnt take to his coaching. He is very hard and expects a lot out of you. I dont know what its going to take, but I wish Coach Uzelac the best of luck.

Yeah, I honestly don't see too much wrong with this. They had their 4 years. Now if they got redshirted some time in those 4 years because of injury like Desmond Morgan then he shouldn't have to "try-out".
Whatever Coach Harbaugh thinks will work and is done correctly I am fine with. Sometimes it's better for these kids to play elsewhere for their 5th year anyways. We have seen a few players do pretty good for themselves lately by doing this.

Look at David Reese.. there is talk he might waiver his comittment, why? I mean I don't know for sure, but it seems as were kinda pushing towards Full-Back for him but his heart is at Linebacker. Please don't take this as the whole truth. But things like this happen. Or maybe he wants to go play with Dez Fitzpatrick at Louisville and that is more enticing than playing for a winning Michigan team.
There are also other teams that will be doing really good and winning. Maybe a player decides he would rather play at Alabama than a winning Michigan team on the rise. Who knows! These kids change their minds all the time. Just because we are winning doesn't mean a kid won't have some reason to decomitt.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Okay? I don't understand is||
I don't understand is my post negative or something wrong with it? All I was doing was explaining how I would have loved to get this kid to breed competition, but we don't really need to use the scholarship in the end because we are in on a lot of talent at other positions. I added in the position I thought we could use another man at and who it looks like we could possibly get to fill those roles.
I am not trying to say we did't need this kid, becasuse he is a great kicker and would be a good addition regardless but we also have other positions we could use guys at also. I'm just confused in what I did wrong.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||That's why I included that in||
That's why I included that in the bottom paragraph.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||I would have loved to get||
I would have loved to get this kid. Definitely from what we have been watching over the past 8+ years. I know we have Andrew David, but could have been nice to get Nordin for more competition. On the other hand, I think it is good that we won't be using a scholarship on a kicker since we have limited space and in on a lot of elite talent that we need desperately.
If there is only 7 spots left:
WR: Ahmir Mitchel
OL: Terrance Davis OR Jean Delance
TE: Nasier Upshur
DT: Rashan Gary (we need at least one man at Defensive Tackle this year)
DE: Xavier Kelly (Weakside Defensive End/Buck Linebacker)
LB: Jonathan Jones OR one of the other many Lb's were in on.
DB: I think we need another pure cover corner whoever that may be.
That gets us to 28 I think and we will need to have 3 of them to Early Enroll to get back down to 25. I am also sure that we won't get all these players mentioned but we need to fill these positions regardless. I know there could also be more or less since there is talk about Greyshirts and possible guys decomitting before signing day in February.

|1 year 22 weeks ago||The Interview||
To me, the interview wasn't what everyone is making it out to be. Neither person was trying to troll each other. Just bad questions and bad answers. Colin could have had some better questions or a way of presenting them better. Harbaugh could have bought in more and tried to be more engaging.
Neither of those things really should shed bad light on one another.
Also, it honestly seems like Harbaugh is talking like he isn't on the radio and just doing a over the phone interview. No need to be very engaging that way, but I'm sure Harbaugh knew he was on air.
I don't see what the big deal is.. bad interview so what!?!?
Time to move on already.

|1 year 29 weeks ago||Chris Singletary||
Yeah, I think it was a plan all along for him to be let go/replaced. He was the recruiting coordinator. It makes complete sense to keep him on staff for awhile until coaches and other assistants get on the ball with recruiting and caught up on the present players on the team. Once that has been mostly established you start phasing him out. I do remember some recruits bringing his name up, so most likely didn't want to let him go from the start and lose connects to certain recruits until some new guys got with it.
Seems like that all would make sense.

Man, I don't want to be the one to tell him...

Just seems like we have plans A, B, C, and D to cover multiple different situations that could take place. I'm not too worried. I think either way the chips fall Michigan will still be a Sweet-16 type of team.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Cal Bears||
Man, Cal is recruiting hard. They got Ivan Rabb and they actually were the front runner for Caleb Swannigan or Diamond Stone (can't remember which one right now) now it's possible they might land Jaylen Brown(sp?) also. wow.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||I think he has it in him||
If he can stay healthy and his offensive line can replicate what they did last year then he could easily run for 2,000+ yards and rack up 20+ Touchdowns. Also if he works hard this in his off season workouts and maybe do a little injury prevention training. I can see this kid doing really big things this season and could be looked at as a composite Top 5 running back nationally.
Does anyone know if he is going to hit any of the summer camp circuits this year?
I might have missed that in the article if he was or not.

|1 year 35 weeks ago||To be Elite||
1. WIN.. Can't be easier said than that. We can't be missing the NCAA Tournament or NIT for that matter. We have to be making NCAA runs every year.
2. Long Tenured Coach.. JB is excellent. I couldn't ask for anyone better, but how long will he be here before he retires. We need someone following him that knows how to progress his players and win the damn game. A lot of these other elite programs have the same coach for many many years.
3. Recruit blue-chip players.. If you want to be elite than you need elite players who can come in and make plays within their first 2 years, so there is no re-building. Also it would be nice to get players who are good and keep them for 3 years plus. Kinda like MSU, it seems they get good players to stick around.
Michigan can become elite in my opinion, and we have an excellent start. Just need to keep what we have going and make sure our next coach can do what JB does. We are definitely on our way. Just might take a couple more big time recruits and couple more Sweet 16/Elite 8 runs.

I think I would try to get the best offensive lineman first. Even if I had to get less talented backs.
Reasoning: Defense usually has the upper hand in the spring time. So better start up front if you want the best chance of winning.
1. Mason Cole (Best lineman, most likely)
2. Erik Magnuson (can play guard or tackle)
3. Kyle Kalis (would have gotten Glasgow, because he can play all 3 positions, but nvm)
5. Screw this. Way to hard to decide lol

Has Michigan put anything out regarding the Spring Game?
The last few years I have been paying attention to the spring game the university has put out some kind of press release regarding what will be taking place, when, where, etc, etc.
If anyone has seen anything please let me know. Thanks.
Only reason I ask is because we are getting dangerously close to the game April 4th and would like to know the details.

If so how could I get one? I had one that I bought at a tailgate you were set up at, but unfortunately I broke it.
|1 year 39 weeks ago||Hey man, I know you're||
Hey man, I know you're getting a lot of shit for this play book thing and everyone is picking apart every sentence you write.
The thing is it's cool you have a chance to see the play book. Who wouldn't be excited to have that?
BUT, even though you are not giving out any detailed information IT IS the fact that you have let it be known that you got access to it.
The implications of just that fact could possibly be damaging. Either for the player or the team. Some things just have a way of blowing up even if you don't really see the harm right now.
So it is best that if you do have that you just keep it to yourself. I know that is probably hard to do, bc it's Jim Harbaughs playbook after all! Just please stop talking about it so there is absolutely no chance at all that anything can happen.
Everyone is only freaking out because you never know what could actually happen.
Sorry man, really cool information, but no one needs to know. (even though i'd love to see it also. It's just better that less people possible see it or even knows the fact that someone not on the team has seen it either.)

|1 year 40 weeks ago||The only concern I have is||
The only concern I have is letting the "offers" be apart of the criteria for grading the players.
In some cases I could see it working, but not all the time.
For example, say Alabama or USC only needs to take 1-2 offensive line prospects. Now since these programs only need a couple players they might feel comfortable not offering a lot of prospects even if a prospect is VERY deserving of an offer.
So those programs go without offering and now according to your rankings it might hurt them because they aren't getting big national program offers.
This situation can vary many different ways as we all know recruiting is weird to say the least.

|1 year 46 weeks ago||You can't read too deep into||
You can't read too deep into the titles. Jim is going to help coach the quarterbacks no doubt about that. But, Fisch is the PGC and coaches WR's... and you really can't coach the WR's without being around the quarterbacks. The positions intermix when coaching..then you add the PGC into the mix and now you have a coach who is helping out with both facets. If your going to coordinate the passing game you have to help coach the guy who is passing and the guy who is catching. I'm sure coach heck also helped somewhat even though he didn't have the title.
This doesn't mean Jim isn't coaching the quarterbacks. Also, it's good that it is this way, bc Jim is the HC and I would think he would help in other areas on the team while at practice, so he has a guy that can do it all if he has to step away.

|1 year 51 weeks ago||Hold on.||
I do see the point you are making, but you have to consider where Michigan and Les Miles is TODAY.
I'm sure Brian would have taken Les Miles in 2008 when he was 6 years younger and was just coming off a National Title win. That is way more attractive then how it is now.
Miles is considerably older, with a lot less years to coach now. It would be a very questionable coaching hire considering upside.

Doesn't surprise me. Wish he could have stayed and been a champion.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||I think this is a easy||
I think this is a easy choice. Mariota had almost a flawless year at quarterback. Gordon is outstanding, but oregon has only 1 loss, going to the playoffs, which is largely due to mariota at quarterback.
I think he does need to come back for his senior season though. Yes, his numbers make it look like he is ready to go now, but I really believe another year in college would really benefit him in the long run. He got sacked about 35-40 percent more this year then his previous 2 years. Either way he will be a high draft choice when he does go.

Well....... that was helpful. Now, finally all the CC threads will stop.

Well, if I was a betting man I would think that San Francisco will be eliminated very soon. Their schedule looks mighty hard. Definitely after the loss to Oakland.
Their remaining schedule is: @ Seattle
Probably going to finish with 3 more losses. Unless, they pull it together. Either way I would bet they only win one of these 3 remaining games.

If we really could land Bob Stoops I would LOVE IT.
The only thing the man needs is a high quality defensive coordinator and he would be set.
Oklahoma has always had pretty good quarterbacks and good running backs. Hell all of their skill positions on offense have been damn good over the years.
It's defense Bob Stoops needs help with. Get Stoops, then pay the money for the right coordinator. Like we just have been doing with Nuss & Mattison. We would be just fine.
Mullen or Miles

After doing a little research and thinking it over I would take Mullen over Miles. I know, I'm batshit crazy. Just seems like there is a lot more upside with Mullen. Miles actually scares me some.
Yes I would love Bob Stoops, but I don't see that happening. Stoops could probably benefit from switching schools though. Seems things have got stale over in Oklahoma.
Still hoping for Harbaugh though. God, I just want this search to end and it just started.

I could still see Nebraska making a run at Mullen.. So, I wouldn't say it's a free run just yet.

I honestly don't know about beating MSU next year.. Their quarterback Cook has basically already came out and said he will be back for his senior season. I think they only lose one maybe two on their offensive line. The defense will be good again most likely. So, it will be a very tough to win game.
I pray that we get them next year though!!

Good job, OP.
You are probably going to get negbombed, because I tried to explain the same thing as you maybe about a month or so ago and got hit hard by the board. A lot of these fans around here don't fully understand that it can take more than 3-4 years to do complete 180. Now, it doesn't always take 5 years to turn things around, but in a lot of cases it does. Definitely when you have to rebuild a depth chart. People don't understand how long that can take in the college game. When you have a lot of recruits who just don't make it or take 3 or more years to develope.
I think Brady had to go just to clense the program, but I do believe he would have got us back to winning 9+ games a year starting next year. Oh well.

Well of course it would be nice to help us to have another big man who could rebound down low. We would be better no doubt.

But the thing is we don't have them.. and we have to find ways without them and I think we will this year. I don't think we will make it deep into the tournament or win the Big Ten title, but it will be a solid season and something better than our football team.

I see nothing wrong here. For one, when this all started to come out it was said it might take up to 2 years to find the right guy.
I wish I could find the article. I remember I thought "2 YEARS..WTF?" and no one else seemed to catch that part or disregarded it. I thought that was weird. But now everyone is throwing a shit fit.
Like a lot of others are saying, JUST because he is a former CEO doesn't mean he is anything like Brandon. I mean where the hell does that logic come from? Damn, some Michigan fans are annoying. Just calm your shit and stop reacting so effin fast. I'm sure Hackett is pretty aware that he needs to tread lightly and do things for the students, alumni, and fans. If he has half a brain anyways, because the thought process shouldn't be too hard after he saw what happened to his boss. He has the oppurtunity to really make his mark in a good way. And it should be easy as he just witnessed everything not to do!
Also, there might be the pitch to Harbaugh that they want him to come in a be a player in deciding on his next boss. Which might help. Only time will tell.. Let's just sit back crack a cold one and let it unfold.

Thanks for the answers guys. Like I said, it was just a question I was thinking about..nothing more than that. Didn't mean to stir up the RR talk again, even though I stated "I'm not trying to stir up anything about RR." Just had to use him as my comparison.
Now.. On with our day!
|2 years 4 weeks ago||Question for the blog||
I had this thought in my head the other day and I wanted to know what you guys think about it.
We see now that the game of football is changing all the time. Mostly now to the spread it out type offenses. Most teams in college run some sort of spread look. Why? Because it works, it makes sense tactically, easier to use when you can't get GIANT offensive lineman to ground the defense into pieces. EVEN the NFL has become very spread-like. You see the NFL has turned into a passing league, spreading WR's all over the field. Teams are always trying to find their Percy Harvin type player. Hell, Chip Kelly is now coaching in the NFL.. You don't need to be an football guru to understand the game of football is now more evolved than ever.
I have been saying if Michigan is supposed to be one of the Elite/Greatest programs then we need to learn how to adapt and evolve with the game to stay on top. Only makes sense right? We all love the Tradition Tradition Tradition!!!! But is tradition of running outdated offenses is what has been keeping us back. (not all the reason, but it was a lot of why we wanted Carr out and something fresh)
Well, we went hired the right guy in my opinion. Rich Rod. He was doing great at West Va. and he had a great track record. He was even competeing for a spot in the National Title when we got him. He was one of the best innovators of the spread. He was running what would be the future of most college/nfl offenses. Even though he wasn't a Michigan Man he was an excellent choice for what we needed to keep up with the fast changing game.
I'm not here to argue about how we should or should'nt have kept him. Or how he was lacking in some areas that could have been easily fixed. (pay top dollar for an excellent DC, ect). Whatever. It's long past done now. We now know that he is off at Arizona and doing well so far. He is still in the beginning of building his team.
We on the other hand, said Fuck you future, we need our good ol' past back. We need manball. We need tradition. We need a Michigan Man. Well, we got it. And, it went horribly wrong. Instead of slowly progressing year to year like Rich Rod, we have gotten worse each season. So, now we have the coach we needed doing good, and the one that was all the right things about to be fired.
Rich Rod would have got us where we needed to be with a little more time and SUPPORT from the alumni and fans. He would have also brought Michigan football into the modern era ways of playing. Spread football. He should have been the guy, but it didn't happen. He was exactly what we needed if we wanted to evolve with the rest of the sport, which is what I think Great and Elite programs do to stay on top. I do also believe if we would have hired Les Miles we could have stayed on top, but we went with the future and I don't think it was the wrong choice, exactly.
My question is, did we just fire the Athletic Director our program needs in the future? Say 5-6 years from now when college football goes full business. We know it's headed that way. We have people always talking about paying players, sponsorships, advertisments, ect. Brandon made some horrible decisions, yes, but very fixable ones. Ticket prices, fixable. In stadium advertising, fixable. Connection with students/fans, fixable.
He could be the guy we need in the near future. If he knew anything, it was how to raise money. I'm sure he could have found other ways then raising ticket prices. As of right now I am glad he is gone. I just hope it's not the same story as Rich Rod. That means we got rid of two key componets that would have helped the program stay on top in the New Age of the game and where it's headed business wise.
So I know this is kinda long and dragged out, but I wanted you to get where I'm coming from. I am not trying to stir up anything about Rich Rod or try to defend brandon. I understand why we got rid of both of them. I just want you to think about it. This really made me think when I saw so many ppl talking about how we should have kept RR. I know this post might bring me a lot of backlash, but remember I am just asking a question geared toward the future. Nothing more than a thought I wanted opinion on.
|2 years 4 weeks ago||I really don't think it sucks||
I really don't think it sucks that much. I mean, what was he really going to do for us at this point in the season? He is supposed to be quite the ball player, but we haven't seen enough to know for sure if he is a game changer at this time.
He got some college experience under his belt. This season won't amount to much. All we can hope for is making a bowl game, possible Win vs Ohio St. and maybe a bowl victory. I highly doubt all three of those things can or would happen even if we did get Jabril back this week. Hopefully we can just make a bowl game, so the players can get 15 more practices.
Might as well, let him keep practicing for next year. Be able to start fresh and healthy %100.

The bad decisions that Michigan makes is being so ingrained with so many old traditions.. like running pro/power style offense. If you are one of the elite/greatest programs that means you know that you must be creative, adapt, and evolve to keep being elite. We don't do that, bc all the fans and alumni want the tradition tradition tradition!
Yes, there are some programs who are winning doing the old way, but it's not very many. Which obviously we should see we need to make changes. ohhhh wait.. we did. We hired Rich Rod to bring us that change and then everyone bashed him, bc he wasn't a "Michigan Man" (dumbest shit ever) and his team wasn't winning enough yet.. dispite the yearly progress in wins. So, we fired Rich then hired a "Michigan Man" to take us back to our good ol' tradition of pro/power style football AND that got us a Football program that is accelerating right into the abyss!!!
Side story to my rant.. My high school would never hire a football coach that didn't belong to the school. I mean someone who had to be affiliated in the school, such as, teacher, athletic director, etc. We never won many games.. just against weak opponets that everyone could beat. We always got our asses beat by the top teams in the conference. 2 years after I graduate my high school finally went out and hired them an actual football coach. Took him a year or two, but he now has them winning. For the first time in over 12 years we had a winning record. We finally figured out that the coach didn't need to be someone who had ties to the program, just someone who knew how to win. This story is errily similar to Michigan Football. Which makes me even more sick, bc I'm reliving this shit twice.

Yeah, basically how I felt when he left. I'm more frustrated with the state of the fans and how they act/react. There is zero patience (now it's more understandable than it was in 2008-2010). So many fans that lack true football knowledge. Creates a bad environment.

With that state of things I really don't see too much of a problem with it. Long as he just observed for a little while and went on with his business. I for one think him going there shows he really cares and he is trying to get all the info available to make a decision when the time comes.

Will remember Trey's shot against Kansas for the rest of my life. Clutch. I almost jumped through the ceiling when he hit that.

Thank God we made it to Friday again. All I need now is a good banging!!!

Yes, I know I know. My mistake.
Go Ahead men.

So, I know some of have a fasination about looking at other coaches, but damn are we literally going to go through every damn coach!?!
I don't really mind these threads all that much, but it has been kinda getting out of hand.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||I've stated this a few times||
I've stated this a few times on this board.
I remember AJ saying that they would always run up-tempo in practice, but rarely use it during a game.
It seems odd that I really haven't seen the offense he ran at Washington with Locker and Price. Locker was one of the best passers while on the run. We rarely see devin get rolled out, which I would think is what he would like behind a not so great o-line and being a dual-threat.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Man, I know he is small and||
Man, I know he is small and not the fastest, but I really think these NFL teams are underestimating his abilities. I'm definitely no professional scout, but the man has a damn cloaking device.. That has to be worth something in the NFL!!! Right??
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Yeah, we are improving. We||
Yeah, we are improving. We just have to get better at playing to our strengths. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, ROLL DEVIN OUT!!!
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Thank You OP!! So stupid to||
Thank You OP!! So stupid to keep boycotting and protesting. They obviously know the position they are in. Barring a MAJOR turnaround, most everyone will be gone by the end of the year.
No need to keep our backs turned on our boys. They need our support. They need us in the stands cheering for them.
Do people honestly think the higher ups haven't caught on yet, and we need to continue to protest, etc. The more we do that shit the worse we look from the outside, but what can you expect from all these irrational Michigan fans. We don't know how to sit back and think about what we are doing and the effect it has to the program. (same shit with RichRod) I guess we might learn one day.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Yes, my point exactly. Just||
Yes, my point exactly.
Just because the kids don't mention attendance doesn't mean they don't see it and might have a tiny affect on them.
Think about if it was neck and neck between Michigan and another school, the prospect can't decide so he starts taking smaller things into account. This stadium fills its seats...and this one has gaping holes in it. If he wants to play in the best atmoshere possible Michigan might not be his choice.
Also, 92-94, I don't really recall too many games that had thousands of students/fans missing either.
Now of course it probably won't play a role that often, but when your coming to Michigan for a hyped night game.. I would think you would expect the stands to be full and a insane crowd atmoshere. If I was to attend a game like that and the students didn't show up I would be very disappointed and would ask myself if they can't fill the seats in a big game, then what does a smaller game look like. Half empty with no one to cheer? screw that.
We only hurt the team and program more. Idc what you say. It can only have a negative affect.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||I think these threads are||
I think these threads are completely embarrassing. The damage has already been done. Don't stop going to the games just to keep beating the dead horse. Brandon will be on his way, just let the rest play out.
Go to the game and cheer for our boys. This could be a big win for us. Also empty seats will only hurt our recruiting more.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Just so people know.. I||
Just so people know.. I wouldn't want him leading Michigan. Just a guy who I think has THE greatest presser quotes. Sorry Spurrier.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||The man is hilarious though.||
Just a few Greenisms from over the years:
|2 years 8 weeks ago||This is really cool to see.||
This is really cool to see. Thanks for posting the pics. They probably did this to show that there are still people who will back them and cheer. Unlike the fans, who want to boycott games because of the AD is a dumbass. Good Luck boys! I'm behind you NO MATTER what happens.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||What is it every time||
What is it every time Michigan plays bad, and we fall apart, that the Former players feel disconnected? WTF. I don't understand Michigan fans.. Honestly the fans make everything worse, because they know absolutely NOTHING AT ALL.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||My first choice has always||
My first choice has always been Miles, I just not sure how realistic it is. I mean the man has a really good spot down there. SEC, recruiting hot bed, etc. I hope he comes home to Michigan and makes us elite once again.
If he does come, I think all he will need is a top notch Offensive Coordinator. It has always seemed that he has had a tough time putting up a lot of points, but in the end he wins.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||LMAO... Funny how things||
LMAO... Funny how things work. Definitely when there was ppl like me who wanted to give him another year and got thrashed for saying that.. Now look. hahahaha Michigan fans are insane.

Another Friday.. Another POSBANG thread.. Another Game tomorrow.. Let's start the drinking now!!!!!!!
|2 years 9 weeks ago||I feel sorry for the guy. We||
I feel sorry for the guy. We tear him apart for his responses, when in reality he is most likely saying what his boss told him to say.
Everyone lay off of Hoke, yes he has made some mistakes, but they haven't been nearly as bad as some. The shane morris deal is def. bad, but I think there was some confusion and in the heat of the moment type argument could be made. He should have called timeout. Thank god it didn't turn out any worse. In the end though I think he knows what should have been done, and he is pissed that he didn't make the right call when he knew the right one. He can get through that one though, bc if we were winning and had a better record it would have been less of a topic.
Coach Hoke is a good man, he loves his players, he messed up a couple times, but not enough to get fired mid season. Do I think he is the right man for the job? Yes and no. He could have been if it wasn't for the need to win NOW. I think if he was coach in 2016 he would have a dominant team. He ran out of time.. his team is struggling at the wrong time, which will be the reason he is fired. This is a good coach, if he can find a place that will give him 6 years to build a team then you will see why he was hired.
As for Michigan, even if hoke could pull it together next year it doesn't matter. We don't have anymore time to wait and see. We need to win now. The program is stale. THE ONLY THING THAT CAN BREATH NEW LIFE INTO THE TEAM IS A NEW COACH, AND THAT'S REALLY THE REASON HOKE NEEDS TO BE FIRED.

|2 years 9 weeks ago||Just not really sure I'm in||
Just not really sure I'm in love with any of these canidates.. I like the thought of giving a couple of the guys a shot, BUT that's not what we need. Michigan's next hire has to be a upper echlon type. A big name.
Just hard to see who it could be.. or wonder who actually has interest. There is a chance one or two of these guys have a good interest in us.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Recruiting. I know this is||
Recruiting. I know this is the wort case scenario in the middle of the recruiting year(2015).
Do we stop chasing the big time names like KLS?
Or go for a new strategy and start looking for kids that aren't superstar recruits?
This thought came to me when I thought about Depth, I don't want to have to go through that again. A new coach is enough, but if we can at least salvage a recruiting class with a "few" MAC level players just so we don't have to start walk ons later down the road. Is this a bad idea??
Hopefully someone understands what I am thinking here. As I probably didn't explain fully.

Everything SUCKS. It's so hard to watch these games. No matter what though I won't miss a game!

Is there any other instances that anyone can think of off the top of their head that a team started out playing this bad, then did a 180 and looked above average?

How do you come up with a number like that? 7 million? wtf.
