|2 days 16 hours ago||Pelini is correct||
about ESPN, they spent the first 4 weeks of the season absolutely trashing the BIG Ten.
Fox may have the Big Ten Network but they do not carry Big Ten games on their network nor have the games most popular morning and afternoon shows. ESPN has been largely a pimp daddy for the SEC and its just going to get worse.

|3 days 18 hours ago||These are basically the||

|4 days 2 hours ago||dinosaur coaches||
with dinosaur ideas.
I was at the Nebraska/State game and when Nebraska went to 4 and 5 wideout sets State had a lot of problems.
Our coaches focus on the running game. I will be livid if they don't try 4 and 5 wide on Saturday.
|4 days 16 hours ago||I don't want to gloat||
but I did say the Oline would suck and it does. Not as much as I thought but it isn't very good and its directly led to Gardner losing his confidence and playing terrible all year.
I did not think we would get manhandled by Minnesota, Utah or Rutgers. That was embarrassing. I thought 7-5 at worse. I'm sad I may miss that by a couple games the wrong way.
|4 days 18 hours ago||I want||
Tressel's knowledge without the douchbaggery
|4 days 18 hours ago||egomaniacs||

|6 days 15 hours ago||I'm actually glad we have||
a bye week, hopefully those still drinking the mass delusional kool-aid can see for themselves just how awful our coaching and player development really is.
|6 days 19 hours ago||I do not think||
Hoke matches the description Bo provides, but I do feel pretty strongly coaches should be engaged in the game these days via headsets. The days of Tom Landry style coaching has long been over.
|1 week 18 hours ago||never found much||
about midnight madness exciting past the age of 22. Pretty fun for the students, but its really nothing more than a rawk exhibition with little substance.
|1 week 1 day ago||I see you are one||
of those who can't fathom how shallow and transparent it is announcing you are going to lower ticket prices on the day the regents meet to discuss the athletic department and its relationship with the students.
When something bad did happen, Dave Brandon vaporized and let his head coach twist in the wind for 3 damn days before finally making an announcement at 1 in the morning. That is not leadership, that is not the Michigan way, maybe someday you'll get it.
|1 week 1 day ago||my first posbang||
in two weeks. Be gentle
|1 week 1 day ago||All of it||
I want nothing left of the corporate yes man culture he's created
|1 week 1 day ago||There was a time||
when Iowa and Illinois produced top 10 teams. Then along came Wisconsin and even Purdue. The BIG hasn't always been a shithole of terrible coaches and teams.
The difference will be Illinois and Iowa go back to being Illinos and Iowa, Ole Miss and Miss State will go on probation.
|1 week 1 day ago||Lack of leadership||
was Izzo's excuse for just simply not doing a good job coaching that team. On the other hand Keith Appling was a terrible leader who made just awful decisions at the wrong times over the last couple years.
Lets not forget two of those high profile "leaders" shouldn't have even made it to their Senior years, let alone avoided jail time.
|1 week 1 day ago||If two weeks||
ago never happened, you think this twit would lower students ticket prices out of the goodness of his heart.
Bullcrap, this is buying people off to save his own ass.
|1 week 1 day ago||translation||
"I hope this works, I don't want to be fired"
|1 week 1 day ago||The dumbing down||

|1 week 1 day ago||where on earth||
would you use that pattern of fabric for anything but this suit?
|1 week 1 day ago||Yes a scumbag||
I can see right through his tactics. He is arrogant, self serving, and loathes the common man. He is everything wrong with what passes for leadership today. Build things, put new paint and things and point to everything you've "accomplished" while pissing on the people.
|1 week 1 day ago||As a season ticket holder||
I will be extremely upset if I'm asked to pay more for next season.
|1 week 1 day ago||What||
a weasel. This man is in full defensive mode. Scumbag all around.
|1 week 2 days ago||If he entered||
the draft I think someone would draft him in one of the NFL's 7 rounds.
He shouldn't consider leaving if he isn't a 1st of high 2nd round pick
|1 week 2 days ago||unless the offensive line||
improves, nothing will change.
|1 week 2 days ago||Ross seemed solidly||
on DB's side a week or two ago, now not so much. Very interesting.

recently signed an extension and promtly donated a half a mill to some university project as a gesture of his loyalty to ASU. He's not going anywhere.
|1 week 2 days ago||It is literally||
the most distateful thing about Italian soccer.
|1 week 2 days ago||Um||
that "report" is over 3 weeks old. The reporter talks about Michigan playing at Rutgers.
|1 week 3 days ago||This analysis might mean something||
if Michigan were close to beating those teams. They were not, they were embarrassed. They are a bad football team right now.
|1 week 3 days ago||I just want an AD||
with an Athletics back ground.
|1 week 3 days ago||Any answer other than||
Funk isn't a very good line coach is just cake dressing.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||lolololololololololololololol||
that is all
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I'd watch the Soprano's first||
finally finished that in 2009, oddly enough
|2 weeks 4 days ago||He has the same||
bunker mentality of his boss.
I'm always right, everyone else is wrong and how dare you even question me.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||The early point in my life||
when I realized I care very little about whats on TV other than sports.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||people with athletics backgrounds||
should run athletic departments.
In my time Michigan has hired 3 men with business backgrounds to be the AD, Goss, Martin and Brandon. Martin was the only one tolerable and his coaching search was questionable at best.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||The||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||depend on how||
much of the hype you bought. I at least felt 8-4 was realistic but even thats laughable now.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||weird||
isn't Feely a financial advisor?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I didn't watch the game||
and I didn't even care. I was sitting in Spartan Stadium watching two teams light years ahead of Michigan in every facet of the game. I checked my phone every now and then for updates, when I got the last update I just shook my head and stuck the phone in my pocket and waited for the crowd in front of me to arupt in thunderous cheer, which they did.
Michigan is a joke compared to MSU and you have no idea how hard it is to say those words. State does everything right on the field and off, their own version of "Special K" just blows away our guy, by miles.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||weak, slow, poorly coached||
teams usually end up with lots of injuries.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I have no more dong||
left to punch.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Why can't our football program||
act like adults and just say he's out with an injury. They create their own drama by being so secretive.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||yes||
and for a high contact sport like football thats usually season ending.
Aaron Rogers came back from one in about 5 weeks. So maybe
|2 weeks 4 days ago||really?||
have you seen the Northwest corner of Michigan Stadium recently?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||sigh||
thats all I have left
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Yes I am sure||
I'm just not sure he actually will be fired
|2 weeks 5 days ago||we keep going||
lower and lower
|2 weeks 5 days ago||DB has done enough||
to get himself fired.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I say||
no more CC: threads for awhile
|2 weeks 5 days ago||You underestimate||
Dave Brandon's weaselness.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Maybe we can get||
Fitzgerald as head coach and Narduzzi as defensive coordinator.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Narduzzi isn't enough||
of a yes man. He'd eat Brandon alive in an interview.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Its not that UM||
had 7 win seasons in 2005 and 2007, its how close those teams were to being 4 and 5 win teams.
2005 we pulled out the MSU game out of our butts, somehow pulled off a win against an excellent Penn State team and a 3 point win at Iowa
IN 2007 MSU had us dead to rights beaten, and we beat Penn State with our backup QB because Joe Paterno brought the most dinosaur of all dinosaur offensvie game plans to Ann Arbor that year practically handing Michigan the game.
I think those wins glossed over just how far behind we were starting to fall.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Another note on Breaston||
Breaston spent most of he last two years at Michigan being kicked away from
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Two of those guys||
wouldn't be playing if a player didn't leave for the NFL early or a major season ending injury.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||My objective opinion||
Michigan is a weak, slow fooball team playing a dinosaur style of football with coaches that are highly overrated.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||mixed feeling||
because I think it just points out how easily we give up TDs these days
|2 weeks 5 days ago||They will just say||
they didn't notice
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Its a lot more than those things||
Their preparation for each opponent is outstanding. I watched MSU change defense at least a dozen times all correctly based on the QB's calls. They just know whats coming. It wasn't until Nebraska went 4 and 5 wide that State had trouble, because Nebraska rarely showed that this year and MSU wasn't as prepared for it.
I'd love to sit on the scout meeting with Michigan and Michigan State, I bet I'd be astounded at the difference.
You can pass on them, but only if you 1) have a good offensive line 2) can go 4 or 5 wide. 3 wide doesn't even phase them.
Also a ridiculous punt return to narrow the score at a perfect time doesn't hurt.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||parity or just||
aweful pre-season rankings?
More fun in the SEC next week with Ole Miss/TAM, Miss St/Auburn Missouri/Georgia plus games like Oregon/UCLA
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Nebraska went 4 and 5 wide||
on offense almost exclusively. MSU couldn't blitz anymore and they became pretty passive on D. Big Ten coaches should take note of it, even though I know ours wont'.
By my estimation both of those teams would beat Michigan by 30, State probably 50. There isn't a single thing Michigan does better than either of those teams, nothing.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||DB can't pay||
his bloated yes man staff if they send the band
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I haven't seen one||
team today I'm confident Michigan could beat
|2 weeks 6 days ago||despite the score||
i've got Clemson on upset watch. Losing to NCstate would be soooo Clemson.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||You'll never convince me||
Dave Brandon is anything more than a man who surrounds himself with yesmen, takes credit for the good things and makes excuses and points fingers at the bad but never accepts responsibility until forced too.
Because thats exactly what he's been at Michigan.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Miss State||
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||eh||
highly doubt it. Dubious reports are he was offered more than his LSU salary by Michigan last time.
It was always my thought that offer was never real and it was just used to get Miles a better LSU deal which he did get. That contract runs through 2017 and would carry a pretty hefty buyout I believe.
Miles is 62 and I think very happy at LSU.
|3 weeks 13 hours ago||Its bacon||
I mean, c'mon
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||from what I saw last night||
Oregon could lose 2 or 3 more
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||DB's clown show||
since the President's press release can't be making a good impression on the regents. Those are smart people who should be able to see right through that kind of stuff.
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||Why would we hire||
the guy who couldn't keep the Oregon ball rolling?
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||absolutely||
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||Leaders and Best||
somehow I always knew it would be destroyed from the inside.
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||the photo op||
was the whole point.
I wish people could see what Brandon is doing, he's still trying to save his own ass.
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||He built||
a nice house on the Rutgers golf course
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||Tow the company line||
and Brandon will use this as proof of what a great AD he is. So phoney
|3 weeks 18 hours ago||Absolutley embarrassing||
to have a team this good with such a horrendous bullpen
|3 weeks 19 hours ago||remove our||
numbers against App state and Miami and we look horrendous. Rutgers doesn't look all that great removing Navy, Howard and Tulane (yet 2 of those are better than both of ours)
|3 weeks 22 hours ago||Please||
win this game, my Michigan soul can't take losing to Rutgers
|3 weeks 22 hours ago||Yes||
I should buy a calender
|3 weeks 22 hours ago||4 full days||
|3 weeks 22 hours ago||TBS||
because its funny
|3 weeks 22 hours ago||also this||
I think its a shrewd move by Ausmus
|3 weeks 22 hours ago||Price pitched on Sunday||
get a calender out.
|3 weeks 22 hours ago||The Big Ten did respond||
and said it was an "in-game" matter.
|3 weeks 22 hours ago||I know I'm late||
after the last week, we all need banged.
|3 weeks 22 hours ago||Great so UM is creating||
an US vs THEM mentality against it own fans. That should end well
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Oregon||
is clearly NOT the #2 team in the nation.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||totally hypothetical||
he would still be at WVU or have moved on to something bigger. Arizona wasn't something bigger to RR 6 years ago.
He might be a top target but then if we hadn't hired him we might have got someone who would have built a rock solid program by now, you never know.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I'll check back in||
in 6 weeks when AZ is 8-4 or 7-5
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Games over||
you guys can take your hands off your ladie parts now.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I hope RR can walk||
I hope RR can walk in the morning with all this knob polishing he's getting on here tonight.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||they also lost||
to Washington State, big woop. That's the exact crap you'd get and were getting at Michigan.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I didn't bring up||
Hoke at all, but the crying over RR needs to just stop.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Some of you||
need to check RR's record at WVU and realize his teams rarely played anyone at all. He can compete every now and then with his system but a big conference with real big time coaches and players will eat him alive over the long haul
I wanted it to work but it just wasn't going to. Just get over it man, he's gone, its been 4 years.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||What it comes down to||
is Dave Brandon has great connections in the business world. This is how the business world talks, he can connect with them and rake in glorious donations for the University.
The real cash cow is Dave Brandon and his fundraising ability.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||water||
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I dont' really||
care how RR or Arizona do, neither has an impact on this Michigan team.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Game 1 of the ALCS||
couldn't start until at least next Friday. That would be Scherzer's 5 day between starts, so touch and go to start. If the ALCS starts Saturday he could go with no problem.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||DB interview||
that man fears for his job and he know it. Now its the medical staffs fault. This man owns up to nothing.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||If thats all he's doing||
fine, evaluate away. But I think the implication is he's doing a little more than just evaluating, though there is no proof of that.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Tigers||
won 5 of 6 meetings this year
|3 weeks 1 day ago||They went 1-3||
there and lost two games 2-1. During a stretch when they weren't playing very well.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Two strong starts||
by Scherzer and Verlander, clinch on Sunday with Price.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||My paranoid, conspiracy theorists||
self made note of Morris starting Saturday and thought that might be Nuss' idea. My worst case was that it was Brandon's idea.
this actually might make that plausible.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||He'll call it||
"evaluating his staff"
|3 weeks 1 day ago||The 500 lb gorilla||
is the performance of our offensive line coach.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Is that the guy||
you want representing "Leaders and Best"
|3 weeks 1 day ago||occasional flyovers are one thing||
airshows are another.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||DB only hires||
guys who tow the company line, which is DB's line.
No thank you, tired of this.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||My take||
Dave Brandon was asked to do interviews by the University, encouraged if you will by President Schlissel. DB doesn't like that idea and is encourageing the local news to not promote.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||It does not matter||
how good or bad the staff is at their jobs if the weasel pulling the strings instinctively acts like a weasel.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Not really the same issues||
and the NFL is much, much larger than the Michigan football program or athletic department.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||If we were 5-0||
it would mean our coaches are competent.
We are not 5-0 and our coaches have little idea whats happening on the field to the point a QB so obviously not ready to start, started a game was injured and allowed to continue, ergo they are not competent.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||must be Ole Miss||
has a big game this week.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||We don't deal||
It was just one more example of how this coaching staff doesn't have the details figured out and how the athletic department is run by an incompetent weasel.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||No body is more angry?||
are you running for regent too?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Also||
Holy Shit Bernie Smilovitz is still around?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||average?||
we are looking way up at average.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Weasels||
Weasels gonna weasel.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Michigan has played 3||
power conference programs this year. Notre Dame, Utah and Minnesota. They have scored 24 total points against those schools, 17 on offense. While allowing 87 points.
We have seen nothing from this program that suggests they can compete with even poor power 5 conference opponents.
Rutgers haven't been world beaters either, with 3 wins over Navy, Tulane and Howard and a loss to Penn State 10-13. Thier one power 5 win came against Washington State in the years first game 41-38. Washington State just beat Utah 28-27.
What you can conclude is Rutgers, Washington State and Utah are all probably pretty similar in strengths and weaknesses and given the way the Utah/Michigan game went this game with Rutgers should give you the heebee jeebies.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Its been pointed out||
a bunch of times how far off the OP is but I just wanted to add to it. There should be plenty of reading out there on the internet about some the clusterfuck coach hirings that have happened in the last 15 years alone.
Michigan managed to avoid the coaching sagas for a long time, but now we're just like everyone else. Its hard to build a program in today's college football when most coaches are barely given a full recruiting cycle to prove themselves.
If a certain segment of State's fans had had their way, Dantonio wouldn't have made it to year 4.
Tough gig being a college football coach
|3 weeks 2 days ago||2005 and 2007||
could have very easily been much worse. 2006 was just, I don't know, lightning in a bottle against a terrible Big Ten schedule.
we were heading for 6-6 seasons in both 05 and 07, a couple close late wins kept that from happening. We have been truly mediocre for a decade now.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Unless||
the new AD is working somewhere else and already knows he's going to be the new AD and has been super secretly negotiating with someone to be the new head coach.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Kiffin||
was on the hotset in all the pre-season college football previews.
Hell, this appeared in Forbes
USC was already a listing ship before last season began, Hayden pulled the plug before a lot of athletic directors would have.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||LOL||
This team is so far from a bowl bid.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||My worst nightmare||
is the clown Brandon will leave the University to take a position in Governor "I'll only run once" Snyder's second term.
I just want him to leave, but fucking up other aspects of my life beyond michigan athletics would be intolerable.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Appreciate the work||
but no need to read past the bullets.
Not the authors fault.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||That letter||
is one of the fakest most transparent things I've ever read. DB probably wrote it himself.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||The good and bad||
of Lloyd Carr was maintaining the Michigan tradition during a time when college football was changing fast. Offensive schemes were becoming point and yardage machines, the arms race of facilities leveled the playing field and Michigan was swallowed from behind.
I admire Carr for a lot of things but he didn't recognize the game around him was changing and thus he ushered in what has been a painfull decade plus of Michigan football.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||The SEC||
will negotiate much these proposals down a notch or two.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Now tackle||
their non-profit status.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Brady Hoke||
is also fighting for his job. There is no assurance Dave Brandon will be gone before him, he can't risk alienating him..
Brady may sound dumb in a press conference, but he probably isn't, and I'm sure he has his own advisors.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Wednesday and Thursday||
is UFR day, so that should be enjoyable
|3 weeks 3 days ago||don't||
harass the guy man
|3 weeks 3 days ago||huh||
guess you can thank Dave Brandon for the hot spot
|3 weeks 3 days ago||He works||
for the KINGS of over saturation
|3 weeks 3 days ago||A shorter version||
|3 weeks 3 days ago||The Michigan difference||
should be that they can't weasel their way out of it here.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||It the continual||
slide in the football program since 2011 which has led us to 4-9 in the last 13 with wins over mighty Indiana, Northwestern, Applachian St., Miami, Ohio and looking completely out of our league most of the time against other 'power 5' schools. That is why Brady should be fired.
For Brandon its raising ticket prices and seat donations at least once, raising concessions prices by 25%, the intolerable in game atmosphere inside Michigan Stadium, the band to Texas fiasco, the screwing over of hockey season ticket holders by moving a game to Chicago after payment, the condescending way he responds to emails, his treatment and alienation of the student body. The repeated "miscommunation" excuses for anything and the "we'll learn" plan of action when something goes wrong. 1am press release when he should have standing at the damn microphone Monday afternoon or even earlier.
Its kind of everything with Dave, because other than fundraising and being in charge of a few capital building projects that have turned out very nice I really can't see much that Dave has done well.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Watch the video||
Morris puts himself back in the game, and Bellamy is looking for a helmet, Bellamy sure thought he was going in the game. I'm sure Hoke thought Morris was being 'tough'.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||WILX TV10||
in Lansing went to the helicopter shot and is mocking the rally.

|3 weeks 3 days ago||If this had come out||
Sunday afternoon. None of this happens, instead the AD tried to parlay this into something that would save his ass.
I really hope the President sees this.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||only that it might||
hurt recruiting a little and the thought of a season fully imploding after firing a coach, but I think we've pretty much reached imploding level.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Schlissel||
is a pro.
Brandon an amateur.
Either way this is the first sweep of the broom to the rug by the University. The weasel is going to keep his job. Everybody can go home now.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||its becoming about||
poor management now, and for that Dave Brandon deserves all the criticism he gets.

I was pretty miffed on the KO following Gardner's touchdown, Minnesota put 10 guys up to stop an onside kick. With that much time left you can go either way, but its more prudent to kick it deeper. However Minnesota was inviting a pooch kick. Why not take a chance, if you get it, super, if not you've put Minnesota back as if you've kicked off. But for god sakes why do you kick it in the endzone like we did. WHY, why, why.

has way too much on its plate to deal with individual player injury situations. The enforcement and eligibility offices alone are enormous.
The NCAA can only provide guidelines on player safety, and accepts on a certain level of trust they are followed.

You don't put people in charge of an athletics department with no athletic leadership history and you've now become so big you need to be run like a fortune 500 company.
