I love Red, and I always will.
In talking with a couple recent former players, the sentiment (at least from these two) is that he's kind of losing it. Hurt to hear that.
The idea that he would hang on two more years just so Babcock can step in is kind of fucking ridiculous. They need to find the best young mind in the game when Red decides to step down.
He's too old to scream at these kids. And in fact, that's a big part of his coaching style. And that's not a criticism. He turned around team after team.
He's had a great run, and he is one of the best ever.... i think its time for him to prepare the program for its next phase... sadly

Borges not having DG ready at qb last year (monumental gaffe IMO, bellomy wasn't even close to ready), combined with his mediocre track record, and his abomination of playcalls vs. OSU... he should have been shitcanned last year.

The right move that came a year too late IMO.

Seriously though... read the Bucknuts article... not looking so hot for Taylor and the AA PD. Id be a bit surprised if Taylor was suspended since this thing is only just now out there, with the game in four days. His draft stock is more likely the concern after this, not that I think it will take a huge hit. I think it was already out there that he can be an asshole, as much as I love the guy.
I was conflicted when i read the bucknuts account, part of me knew it was all so wrong... the other part of me was like yeah, kick his ass, god knows the do they same kind of dirt ball shit to our people in Columbus.

Fuck the Lie-Downs, the Fords don't deserve a fan base. I switched alliances to Tom Based Brady and the Patriots as soon as TB started playing, before he won any Super Bowls.

I think the right move is to hire Jim Harbaugh for the Michigan job. Would love to have Brady and Mattison stay on as the DL Coach/Recruiting Coordinator and D-Coordinator, respectively.

It's crazy... I'm reading rumours about Harbaugh as a possibility to Texas.
Not that I wholeheartedly believe them.
But the rumour claims that there is some tension between Harbaugh, that twit Jed York and the GM Trent Baalke, which I could see happening. Jim doesn't seem to shy away from conflict... ever.
The one substantial part that i read said that Jim rejected a two-year extension. To me that could mean something.
If he starts talking to Texas I say we jump in that race and start going after him as well.

Football PR guys will tell you, announcers don't so much care about who wins as they do about getting to announce a good, exciting, close game. So it would make sense they would be pulling for Minny to make this a game.
Granted, plenty of announcers are probably pulling deep down for a team.
Eg Herby & gals for the bucs. Credit to Herbie, he seems to keep it contained fairly well

with a play action on 3rd and 10 but nice play funchess
|22 weeks 3 days ago||lol michael vick... accurate||
The fact of the matter is... the burden of proof is on the dual threat qb's right now.
As great as they can be, they can also be a flash in the pan. One or two good years and done.
We saw one get to the super bowl last year. I can see russell wilson as a pocket passer, the same way donovan mcnabb was. Some of those dual threats with dangerous legs, have the ability to also become great stay at home pocket passers. Those are the most successful, in my oponion... although i'm sure you will resort to some kind of attack response like you have with the other posters

|24 weeks 13 hours ago||sorry, but||
the genius (Borges) has made it clear he will never make the mistake of hiring a QB coach again.
His title is OC/QB coach. Apparently, a bad experience has shut him off to it completely.
As for DG freaking out, I can't really say that I blame him, given his faulty, unpredictable front 5.
|24 weeks 14 hours ago||I too think they need to go||
We have no excuse not to be able to bring in top notch assistants. We know that DB has the money.
Say what you will about Carr, but he had the balls to cut someone loose if they weren't working out. I hope Brady can see the big picture and make the tough calls.
As far as I know, Urban is showing no signs of another breakdown. Sorry boys but it looks like he will be at OSU for a while. I don't see us outshooting OSU with fatty running the offense and whatever you call the development of our O-line.
|24 weeks 15 hours ago||haha you dipshit||
I see that you are back with your "coaches can do no wrong" idiocy.
"All is well!! All is well!!!"
Should they put DG back at receiver when Bellomy returns to health?
I don't know that rolling with what doesn't work is worth losing to Akron or UConn.
Maybe resort to practice time with pro style when the game is in-hand.
|25 weeks 1 day ago||but why?||
there is so much longhorn schadenfreude to be had this year.
Got so sick (when I lived there) of that hook 'em ghey hand signal they are so fond of using...
Would relish at their big baby crocodile tears
|26 weeks 1 hour ago||what worries me||
Is that DG was bailing us out of failed protection all the live-long day. That's not going to happen with all his replacements going forward.
I hope these protection issues go away over time because our next line of qbs will be in for a beating.
Those play action boot/rollouts worked very well at certain points, which is surprising, since long developing plays seem like a really bad idea against a defense like that.
|26 weeks 2 hours ago||wouldn't call him a class act||
Overused as that ambiguous term may be
He acts like a child on the sideline and that fake injury garbage is far from class.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||if BH has all this money to hire assistants with...||
then why the fuck did he hire Al Borges
... Sorry, should have waited until after he has a horrible game calling plays this year... then again, that would be just piling on.
|26 weeks 2 days ago||That's a lot of pressure to put on the kid for this game||
I think the whole reassigning numbers in the name of Marketing business is awful ghey...
That I said, I can't deny it would be kind of cool to see DG pull off a huge game wearing Ol' 98
|26 weeks 6 days ago||Fair enough||
But that was a Tedford move... can't put Sunny Dykes (sp?) in the same category... but yeah, i guess the CAL fans can't talk much in this case.
|27 weeks 59 min ago||Fitzgerald||
Starting to really dislike Fitzgerald.
Was at the Berkeley game on Saturday... it was some real amateur league shit, when CAL would start to get some offensive momentum, a NW defender would go down... only to spring up and walk off 3 minutes later, surrounded by trainers. To the CAL fans credit, they caught on right away, started to boo every time a NW defendender went down... so strange, never witnessed something like that before.
Add that to Fitzgerald's obnoxious smiling jackass antics at the Michigan game last year, and his bitch move to try and get O'Brien penalized at the PSU game last year.
I hope we beat their ass this year.

The entertaining stories that I heard from people who were close to him are that he got messed with a lot in his early years. I can see that being the case considering the shy, awkward kid he's painted to be up above. Also that he had a big temper. Not in a drunk and disorderly way, but in a way where his teammates didn't want to slack while he was on the field.... shouldn't be too much of a surprise to people that have watched his games over the years.
I'll leave out the examples... much respect for the guy.

That might be the case if OSU was a better school with a winning all-time record against us. But the series has experienced dominance on both ends.

my advice is to just ignore it because it is almost on every post. Very uptight community. It is retarded, I agree, but it comes with the territory on this site, the last couple years especially.
|46 weeks 1 day ago||Personally...||
I enjoy Mark Dantonio. He is a good coach that will ensure MSU always has a tough D.
He will never put MSU over the top. He will always be a dollar short, in part because the man is a weirdo. He is not going to sign the killer recruiting class, given the way he is.
It is a better MSU under Dantonio, but they will continue to be Michigan Lite going forward.
In short, thank you for posting. I continue to be amused by his retarded statements.

You could make the argument bo was a better person yes... and i already said harbaugh was more of an asshole.
I love bo and what he stood for but stop felating him. He had his moments. And yes i have heard more than enough of how unpopular harbaugh is with his players. Wouldnt be the first time a successful coach was a dick with his players... and even the popular ones arent loved by everybody. Just the way it works in a locker room with 60-110 guys.... not everyone is going to be all-aboard in love with the decision makers.
Be happy with the guy we have in charge. Together you can continue to worship bo. But sorry, no way you could know that it would have blown up or blown over with harbaugh
|1 year 6 weeks ago||this is trolling?||
God forbid somebody say they rather would have had harbaugh in here than hoke.
If you prefer hoke as coach, you are probably lying to yourself, or value having a likeable guy over an asshole that wins.
Bo was an asshole. Maybe not to the extent harbaugh was, but i dont see anyone shitting on him. Harbaugh wears his heart on his sleeve and sometimes runs his mouth too much. But id take the good with the bad there.
A little birdie told me that harbaugh was locked in to coach at M when his wife, deep into pregnancy with twins at the time said hell no. Im not one to be mr. Family man myself, but i can understand his predicament.
It is painful to see all these 49er lovers worshipping him out here after that lucky sperm club shmo jed york had him fall into his lap... nonetheless i am happy for jim.

|1 year 9 weeks ago||i think at times, you are a presumptuous blowhard...||
As is evidenced by your steadfast (seeming) refusal to believe michigan coaches could possibly make an egregious error.
Case in point, your outrage at the implication that the coaches fucked up hard in not prepping gardner as qb and thinking bellomy was ready for action.
But in this case (mattison) i agree with you. I saw plays where the defense "had" the play contained or killed, but shaw and company managed to pull a rabbit out of their collective hats. I support mattisons aggressive approach, rather than laying back and letting shaw pick apart our backup corners and a strong safety better suited as an extra linebacker.
If you want to villify someone on D, look no further than our senior "leader" who decided to light one up, leaving us even more high and dry back there.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||yes, good call, i am definitely trolling||
I am sharing my frustration at the prospect of more seasons where our offensive talent underachieves (thanks to the "braintrust") ... just for the sake of upsetting people on this board.
|1 year 9 weeks ago||from what i saw, play calling was some good, some bad||
Definitely an improvement over ohio state.
The bad news is, borges isnt going anywhere. I am sure hoke is satisfied enough with the improved play calling to stick with fatty.
If you are happy with this coordinator going forward, i recommend a lobotomy.

forget about critisizing the offensive playcalling. Throw it on the O-Line. Really nice. Fuck off Brady. I hope he's not really this clueless, and this is all coach-speak.
The O-line is at a disadvantage when the D has a pretty good idea of what you are about to do.
At least he didn't name names I guess.
He took the heat for calling the timeout, but not going for it on the fourth, or on what play Borges called. I guess that's something?

Anyway, Borges has specifically said that he won't hire a QB coach. He's made it clear he doesn't believe in that. NCAA mandate or not.

Navarre improved drastically when we first brought in Lefty as QB coach. He did a good job prepping a true freshman henne into a competent QB as soon as year one.

He has never had a top-tier offense. I believe 17th in the nation was as high as it ever got for him.
His ceiling was evidenced by his playing calling on Saturday. His decision-making shows severe deficiency.
Push him out the door.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Feels bad man||
|1 year 15 weeks ago||You make it sound like||
DB and the powers that be embody some sort of control over every detail down to the very plays that are called.
I have heard whispers like that in the past (former players) that there is some kind of powerful alumni force behind everything.
I certainly hope and don't think that's the case. I can tell you that when I was in close quarters with Loeffler, DeBord, Carr, etc. they weren't backing down from calling plays or discussing what Bill Martin or the alumni would think of their play calling.
OTOH, Carr did plow through two OC's within a few years.
But if you know something that we all don't, thank you for sharing. I hope you are wrong.
I see it as a lot of misfortune. We could have had Brian Kelly, but Brian Kelly is an asshole, so not everyone wants him here.
Would I have taken the good with the bad on him? Probably.
But you never know with that guy. He strikes me as about as loyal as a shark in a feeding frenzy.
If an NFL team came calling, who's to say he wouldn't bolt?
It's extremely bad luck that Urban happened on a personal crisis/meltdown and decided to come back exactly when OSU had a vacancy. He is arguably/on route to becoming the most successful coach in the history of the game (depending on your determining factors).
Things certainly don't like good in respect to our rivals right now... but, then sometimes the unpredictable happens.
In the back of my mind, I saw us on the downside of our main rivalries when Kelly and Meyer came into the picture. What a shitty gut feeling to have.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||You're out of your mind||
The short yardage third down play calls were atrocious.
And as far as Devin being limited. If the coaches had given him reps throughout the year and prepared him as a backup, he wouldn't be so limited, if that was so much the case.
I know all that hindsight 20/20 shit, but they were out of their minds for leaving nobody home prepared to fill in for an undersized, running QB.
The one thing I think Borges may have been wrongly accused of is not putting Denard at RB often enough. I'm guessing Denard is a liability in passing plays, as he won't be able to protect Devin nearly as effectively as Vincent Smith.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||I think this is a good topic and an important discussion...||
But even I'm tired of thinking about it today. Maybe tomorrow.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Agreeancement||
Proud of our boys. Not proud of the way it all went down.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Haha||
I was thinking about that. It's going to be awkward for Heiko.
Is he going to ask the tough questions?
I guess it doesn't matter. The media is not going to make Borges a better coordinator.
What matters is whether they fire him or not.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||fuck that||
do you believe in your heart that we are going to be a national contender with this OC? He's coached for 27 years and this is what we have.
Push him out. Thank you for your time and effort.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||I don't hate Borges||
I even feel kind of bad for him.
I just think he needs to find another job, or retire.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Haha... I'd say you're right before today||
But I think people are starting to see the light.
What really matters if Hoke decides to make a change. My money says no. Hope I am wrong.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Wish the first row||
had college hockey
|1 year 15 weeks ago||I don't think Dave should get involved||
on this one. He has his fingerprints on enough things Michigan Athletics right now. Nobody wants to work for Al Davis, the AD (A stretch I know, but it shouldn't be his call)
But I do think Hoke needs to go in a different direction for OC. Admittedly I have been skeptical of Borges since day one.
I think Hoke himself needs to nut up and make the call.
I just don't (and never did) think you should go through years of railroading your highly-specialized offensive personnel so that Al Borges can run your offense
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Congratulations||
You've given the best response.
Great handle btw, Howard rules.
Best of luck on your quest.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Sorry dude||
DeBord or Malone on their worst day weren't this bad.
Don't bring Carr into this. And Carr had the balls to move guys out if they weren't right for the OC position.
Let's hope Hoke can do the same. Not counting on it.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Secondededed||
Sober as a Mormon on Sunday throughout... Usually my eyes don't leave the TV for the whole game...
But I kept checking Mgoblog through the second half, thinking to myself....
Am I the only one seeing this? is Borges on the take?

But that late foul where our guy (Stauskus?) hit the floor hard was excessive. Coaches seemed like assholes, but if flybys are the norm, you know better than me. I don't watch a lot of college hoops...
And don't worry, every guy does "it", whether he admits it or not.

Pitt plays like thugs and their coaches do the flyby handshakes on Belein. Good riddance shitheads.

a strong, fast North/South runner. I think he could fit in here. I hope the coaching staff at least tries to get him to walk on here.

Good luck with everything.

I can see why he'd be pissed or decide to leave. The leading receiver and they don't even give him a scholarship?
Not really taking either side, and I don't think the rant/letter was a smart idea. But I can certainly see why he'd be pissed.
It's one thing to be broken down (to be built back up), checked, etc. But its another to be taken advantage of like a bitch.

Our D went to shit under his watch, but he gave it his all to make this work. I still like the guy, and some of our best players come from his regime.
I wish him the best. I can't help but root for Arizona in those Saturday night shootouts.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||really?... wow... really?... wow... really?||
there's that annoying cliche again. I hear that shit constantly in some form or another.
Can we switch it up?
And if you're saying Hunwick is nowhere near to his team what Denard is to his, your lack of an original vocabulary only adds to the argument that you are ignorant. I would assume you didn't see Hunwick in the Frozen Four a couple years back, where he stood on his head to beat a NoDak team that had nearly dominated us in every way except goaltending. He got us into the title game.
If you're "wow... really"ing for the opposite reason, I still think you are ignorant. Both guys have an argument for being the franchise player so-to-speak.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Overzealous Mods IMO||
Maybe you're just following guidelines or some sort of protocol for this site, but I do think the Moderators go too far.
I think Brady Hoke has done a lot of great things for this program. I have been pleasantly surprised with him...
But should it make him immuned from criticism? Absolutely not.
I know that everybody makes mistakes, there is no perfect coach. I just disagree with censorship of unpopular opinion.
Definite groupthink issues on this board

|1 year 18 weeks ago||it doesnt mean that hoke & co were right||
And you dont know the real story of why hoke & co made the move regardless of what they said to the media.
Yes we are all just speculating. Some people disagree with you p.o.v. on DG and how he has or hasnt been utilized.
Cant you just fucking accept that without jumping all over every opinion to the contrary?
I see arguments for both sides. Some people myself included think that it was a fuck up. Let it go.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||do you remember the alabama game||
ReDenard had to sit out a series. They put in bellomy.
Theyve made it clear bellomy is their guy. They want him to go in there if denard goes down. He is more borges' type so to speak.
So to answer your question, even if devin can be a more effective qb at this point, yes, yes they would put in bellomy.
Dont tell me it doesnt happen. Same shit happened to brady hensons sophomore year. In fact we lost a couple games primarily because of it.
I guess its hard for you to believe that coaches make big mistakes, have lapses in judgement at that level. Believe me it happens.
Call me every name in the book you ignorant fuck but its clear the coaching staff made bellomy their guy. Look no further than the reps in practice and the alabama game.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||dude||
So sorry its getting old for you. Whats bullshit is that people (including you, dipshit) dont acknowledge what a complete failure it was to leave nobody behind denard when we could have prepared devin.
I saw plenty of plays where bellomy had all the time in the world and still made horrible throws/decisions. Granted, he is young, inexperienced and may have a future. But right now he has no business seeing the field with devin on the roster.
Open your fucking eyes.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||bullshit||
You cant blame this loss on richrod. Hoke didnt have to bring a mediocre pro-style OC with him.
He could have hired a spread option guy to work with our talent. HC's are capable of changing offensive philosophies with success.
Schembechler changed from the option to pro style when the time was right. Les miles plug and plays successfully with OCs when his good coordinator gets hired away.
A lot of the pieces are there. A great DC. Hoke is a great recruiter and im sure his players love and want to play for him.
But lets face it, he fucked up with his OC hire. Borges is not proven as an OC, beyond average or slightly above. Borges could have prepared gardner as both receiver and backup QB.
Antwaan Randle El started his senior year as a receiver in training camp because he demanded to start his prep for the nfl. Randle El saw that the qb in his place was shit, so he switched back -after the season had started and had another great year.... so dont tell me we couldnt prepare gardner for both positions this year.
When you have a dual threat qb of denards stature, injuries are a very real likely outcome. Leaving nobody home to back him up was a blatant fuck up to say the least.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||you still playing puck kid?||
Figured there'd be some opportunity if they brought in replacement players
|1 year 19 weeks ago||want to see RR succeed, happy for him||
Wish him the best. Sometimes wonder what could have been if he hadn't let his hires sabotage our D
|1 year 19 weeks ago||does it really surprise you||
that this chode (Borges) is capable of laziness.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||I don't think Hoke has the balls to fire him after this season||
Please prove me wrong. Please, please, please.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||I'm just tired of our coaches||
bringing in shit coordinators.
It's michigan FERFUCKSAKES. Is it that hard to find a proven coordinator that wants to coach here?
First Rodriguez undermines Schaffer, a proven DC and brings in his crony, GERG. I can't remember a Michigan defense ever being that bad. Cost Rod his job.
Then Hoke brings in Al Borges, a guy with a proven track record for mediocrity, or above average with the right talent.
Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||If it comes to that...||
"that" being to not even consider Gardner for QB, just more evidence of Hoke's limitation. Yes he can recruit and seems like a guy that is truly there for his players, but his decision making is at times questionable... may be putting it mildly.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Either you are trolling,||
Under 15 years old, or not very intelligent.
We read your comment the first time.
I think that Borges needs to go, and I have never been a big fan of his.
I was impressed with the season we had last year, but as we know, a good/great year one is not a perfect indicator or success. Look at the first seasons at ND for Ty and Chuckles...
|1 year 19 weeks ago||dump her||

|1 year 19 weeks ago||Credit the Coaching Staff...||
for ruling out Gardner as a backup QB. It's not like Denard ever gets injured. Obviously Bellomy is a viable backup option.
Borges for Prez, etc. etc.

Had a chance to work on a team with him. Logical guy, very dry sense of humor, and I mean that in a good way. Extremely funny.
He would probably be a good recruiter. I see him as a good teacher, as he has the ability to break things down in a very clear, simple manner, even the slowest of learners can catch.
He might come off a bit abrasive to a thin-skinned player.
