I suggest we pin the UTL Kickoff protest thread. I think it will have a far greater impact than any discussion, and it is of the utmost importance that DB is gone sooner rather than later.

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

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

the genius (Borges) has made it clear he will never make the mistake of hiring a QB coach again.

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.

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.

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.

confirmed that he said (after getting tackled) "what's up nick? nice hit" after he was said to be "mouthing off to a rice player"
Pretty harmless. Anyway, players talk shit all the time, he just happens to have a white, hot burning spotlight on him, which you could argue is a dumb environment to run your mouth in.

They forged a friendship. For those of you who don't know, freeman was a nd tight end. Probably has something to do with that.... as alluring as catholicism can be for a young athlete; I think it has more to do with freeman

It is pretty stupid that BH and most of the fan base now refer to them as Ohio.
Most of us are well aware that it is not a very good school, and a lot of dirty shit tends to go down over there... don't really know what the nickname adds
I dislike/hate OSU as much as anyone else here, but we have our weirdness about it as well.

|1 year 25 weeks ago||just missed Brady's period at UM||
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.
|1 year 34 weeks ago||sure I'll bite||
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.
So tired of people calling them Ohio
|1 year 34 weeks ago||Welcome to Mgoblog||
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.
|1 year 34 weeks 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.

|1 year 47 weeks ago||sorry wasnt aware the all-knowing expert on bo was present||
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 47 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.
Wish him the best. Go blue.
|1 year 49 weeks ago||Green seems overrated||
Yes, I want him to commit and turn out to be all-world.
It's just... watching his film, I was surprised he was considered the #1 RB.
To see if I was the only one, I googled Derrick Green Overrated, and what do you know... Magnus agrees with me on his site.
I talked a lot of shit about Magnus in the past, but I think his assessment of Green is spot on. Good call Mags.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||fuck no||
I have a good feeling about this... nd loses title game, kelly shows his true colors yet again and bounces for the bigs.... and the trend continues... spikes of success, perpetual mediocrity.
If it happens i demand brian bring back the nd returning to glory shirt
|1 year 50 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 50 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 50 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.
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Beat Ohio!||
|1 year 50 weeks ago||Gruden, you are right||

I suggest you take the HC job at Tennessee and hire him immediately.

Fascist control on the Appy State Weed story (like they usually do, of course). Let the story out and maybe a light bulb goes on in a few of our players heads. When you smoke that shit as an athlete, IT AFFECTS YOU!!! NEGATIVELY!!!
I have a couple of roommates that turn into mindless vegetables every night after they smoke that shit. But when you try to point out that its a waste of their time and numbing them from dealing and improving in their lives... its like you slapped them accross the face in public.
Its not easy to talk someone out of being a pot head.

He was that way in college, he was that way early in his pro career.

I was still wavering on giving RR another year (although ultimately, no, because, you know, what came of the Defense), and his track record was plenty worse than Kelly.
I can assure you, I would not be calling for Kelly's head after a couple years. I realize its speculation on both sides because, who really knows... but you know, my opinion.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||That is evil||
I can't wait that long.

|2 years 3 weeks ago||yeah||
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?
|2 years 3 weeks ago||He could have had Gardner||
prepared Gardner as a backup. For the 80 billionth time.

But hey, things change. It's been a while since he's been at M.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Not really sure how i'm trolling here...||
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.
It's no secret that I don't like him as a coach, but in this case, I was just clarifying that Loeffler wouldn't happen with our OC.

"we're not going anywhere"
But so what? as someone already mentioned, what is the guy supposed to say?
Dave Brandon also barked out those famous words to a bunch of recruits a couple months before he fired Rich Rodriguez.
So people in college athletics are not Oracles... oh well.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Why 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.
It would be great to have him work with Shane.
It's not going to happen though. Borges doesn't believe in QB coaches.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Incompetence of Former AD?||
Maybe you forgot, he hired Belein? Or that he oversaw the decision to and beginning stages of revamping the big house?
RichRod didn't work out, but honestly, who really saw that coming? The guy was successful everywhere else before he came here.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||haha||
I see ya shirtless
|2 years 3 weeks ago||No, why?||
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.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Feels bad man||
|2 years 3 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.
|2 years 3 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.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||I think this is a good topic and an important discussion...||
