I thought some call you the Gangster of Love.
|1 week 4 days ago||Well..||
Well.......that and obnoxious losers like us! What I mean by that is all the many hands you HAVE to shake as a college coach.
What I mean is that pro coaching is just that, COACHING. You have guys being paid to be there acting as close to pros as athletes can and the only people a coach really HAS to answer to are the GM and owner. Really think about the demands on a college coach as opposed to a pro coach with the number of people you have to answer to. Start with not only having the A.D. but also the President of the school, the Board of Regents, the Intercollegiate Athletics Board. Then add to all that crap all the donors you have to deal with (athletic and otherwise). Then throw in a healthy smattering of the Alumni Association and other general alums you have to glad-hand and all the national tours of the alumni groups you have to do during the down time in the summer. Then you throw in the fact that at least half your job is jerking off about 200 or more 16 and 17 year old kids EACH YEAR who think they're the second coming of the greatest player ever and their parents who are generally worse, then do it again every year. Personally, not for me. I'd take the pro job any day of the week. Coaches want to coach and the NFL is the purer form of coaching. Coaching college is half coaching and half making people happy.
|1 week 4 days ago||I don't think||
I don't think its a Michigan thing Timmaayy. I think its just simply pro vs. college and the Harbaughs want to be pro coaches given the option.
|1 week 4 days ago||I declare the "Gruden Rule" on Cowher||
See above. I invoke "The Gruden Rule" on Cowher for the same reason. Why the HELL would that guy leave the money and easy lifestyle of the broadcast booth to go back to coaching if he hadn't already? Makes no sense.
|1 week 4 days ago||I've been thinking about||
I've been thinking about basically what you're saying. Basically what your saying is "Why the hell would anyone leave a major coaching job (NFL or major college) for us. I think you're dead on. That said, for a guy like Sumlin or Briles, or the Oklahoma State coach or basically anyone coaching at a school that is traditionally middle of the pack in the Big 12 or SEC, is it worth it to come to a wealthy former powerhouse like Michigan where the in-league competition is pretty weak compared to where you are? Further, even with our mediocre records of the last six years, we're still recruiting easily.
Again, I don't want to hear about current NFL head coaches like the Harbaughs or guys at powerhouse programs like Saban, Meyer, or even Charlie Strong. Not going to happen.
Also, Gruden is done. If you were making the scratch he's making in his broadcasting career without having to expose yourself and your family to the pressures of big time NFL or college coaching, wouldn't you sit up in that broadcasting booth and laugh all the way to the bank? Come on!! That dude is DONE with coaching.
|1 week 4 days ago||I knew someone||
I knew someone would bring up Cam. Good guy BUT none of his head coaching stints has really gone too well. Some people are not meant for the head coaching gig. Plus, if you're dumping Hoke you need a splash if possible. What splash does Cam bring?
|1 week 4 days ago||I hate to go||
I hate to go down this road with Hoke at this point but I'd be naive to say it hasn't crossed my mind too. So let's hypothetically say Hoke is let go.
Jim Harbaugh (and for that matter John Harbaugh as well) will never coach at Michigan or any other college as long as he has pro options so forget him. That's daydreaming. We weren't going to get him before and we won't now. I could be wrong but it appears he WANTS to be a pro coach. Who can blame him. If you could make the same money or better doing the job in the pros AND not have to deal with recruiting, alums, Regents, donors and a University bureaucracy, wouldn't you prefer to stay pro? Les Miles should have gotten the job instead of Hoke but that's spilled milk. At this point I think Les is too old to start over somewhere. So then what??? Its another crapshoot on an outsider unless we get desperate to tie ourselves to the Michigan Man thing and go for someone like Cam Cameron.
To me the big problem (on a lot of levels) with getting a new coach is the issue of Dave Brandon. If you go on the presumption that Hoke is a goner then at what point do you deal with Brandon? If you get rid of Brandon shortly before Hoke, then you're looking for an AD and coach at the same time. What coach worth a damn will want that job if he doesn't know who his boss is? If you don't get rid of Brandon then you run into the same impediments in the hiring process that we ran into with the Hoke search. To make it work right, I think Brandon is going to need to be given the opportunity to resign mid-season. Problem is (1) we have no idea if this new President of the University is going to want to deal with that so soon (2) hopefully we're done with the whole businessman-as-AD thing after Goss/Martin/Brandon. If you go back to hiring an actual AD we have three "Michigan Men" available in Jeff Long at Arkansas, Warde Manuel at UConn and Brad Bates at Boston College. The question is how quickly can those guys get on campus and get into the swing of hiring a new coach. This whole thing is very unstable.
I know its easy for everyone to scream "Fire Hoke" but think about he big picture before you dust off the pitchfork and torch. It COULD absolutely be worse.

Fortunately a lot of big wins and great memories.
I was in the student section for Desmond's catch. At both the UTL games and the first one is clearly one of my favorite games of all time.
My favorite memory was the 2006 game when my wife demanded we go hiking in the redwood forests in northern California. We were literally hiking out mid-afternoon knowing fully that I missed at least the first half and wouldn't be able to drive back to anywhere with a tv before it was over. I was wearing my Michigan hat and a guy walking into the forest stopped me to say "did you hear?". I wasn't sure what he was telling me and then he said "Michigan is up by three touchdowns, they're killing the Irish". I managed to pick up a weak radio signal on a beautiful drive back listening to the second half where we closed them down driving down a scenic highway in NoCal in a convertible. Very good memory. Hope tomorrow night gives us one last good one.

|2 weeks 1 day ago||The hope||
The hope that you might get money from Michigan. I know many kids in-state and out who apply to a school but know they can't go if they don't get some kind of ride. In many cases they actually will call the school after acceptance and tell them they have no hope of going there unless they get financial assistance. Sometimes they'll find money if the kid did well enough academically. Other times they won't and the kid will go elsewhere.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Sadly||
Sadly you're dead on. In the last five to seven years the percentage of students in Michigan who are starting at community college despite getting into Michigan or MSU has been going up drastically simply because it's cheaper. Michigan is addressing this issue by being more open minded and accepting more CC transfers and also setting up a sizable scholarship program for people who transfer from CC's. The academic standard is just as high and if the student wouldn't have gotten in as a high school senior, they mostly won't get in out if CC but it's a rising trend in this state and the Universities are having to respond accordingly,
|2 weeks 1 day ago||$50,000||
For an out-of-stater from Ohio paying $50,000 to us versus $20,000 a year for OSU is going to make a difference if Michigan doesn't give you any kind of ride.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Not so much||
Who would pay out of state tuition to go to Ohio?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||From student recruiting standpoint||
I've mentioned before I do student recruiting for Michigan as part of the ASR program. Part of the reason we lose people is because MSU often targets our middle range students for what are known as merit scholarships (a merit scholarship is based solely on grades and ACT and doesn't take need into account) state's endowment is drastically behind ours and their merit scholarship program is about 20% of ours . however, when they target kids in the middle of our pack who aren't academically strong enough to get Michigan merit scholarships it's hard for some of these kids to turn away from a full or partial rode from a lesser school as opposed to having take out loans to go to Michigan.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||Not sure||
Not sure about your MSU stat but I recruit for Michigan and the stat is the bottom 25% of our entering class had a 29 or lower. One point may seem meaningless but on the ACT it's quite a bit. The difference between the 25th % and 75th % at Michigan is only three points (30 to 33). Further, going with your stats you're saying only a quarter of their kids had the credentials to compete with our kids.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||It's||
It's an always interesting argument. The State of Texas changed up how they do admissions. If you finish in the top 10% of your class regardless of ACT/SAT you are guaranteed admission to the school of your choice in the state. UofT is the top school and a friend of mine on faculty has said they've had a higher drop out and transfer out rate since they instituted that policy. The argument against devaluing ACT/SAT is basically playing out in Texas in that you may be top in your high school class but that may not mean you can compete against the top end nationally.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Three points||
1) The state only provides a meager 16% of all of the University's funding. Thats down from over 60% about 30 years ago when the percentage was still 70% instate/30% out of state.
2) Iowa is a state school because of similar issues discussed above with their state's population, they've moved to 50/50.
3) MSU used to be over 90% in staters but this incoming class was only 70% instate/15% out of state and 15% international.

Very nice in theory. Certainly in a vacuum its a great idea.
That said, here's the race to take advantage of these new rulings that I feared. To do this, the athletic departments are going to free up the cash. That means either that ticket prices are going up or sports are going to get cut (non-revenue sports for the Universities that keep football and, as Hawaii demonstrated, it likely means others will cut football.
I get why people like Brian have been cheering the Power 5 and the Ed O'bannon decision (and others like it). But the vacuum this has created is going to create quite a few casualties on the way to figuring out how this will all pan out.

I have kids slightly younger than yours and have stupidly been bringing them since they were four. A few thoughts from my failures:
1) Pick a bad game and get an extra ticket or two so you have some space.
2) Don't take them those first two games because of the heat. They're already going to have trouble sitting still, the heat will make it far worse.
3) Same is true of the cold. If I were you the game I'd target is Minnesota. Weather should be about right and tickets likely won't be terribly priced. My second choice would be the Sept 20th game.
4) Yes the kids will get really bored at a standard tailgate and you'll run them out of energy if you do too much sightseeing before the game. The drumline show suggestion was a good one. Though the traffic and lines will be worse, I wouldn't get them there too early you'll lose them by halftime if you do.
Believe me I know this feeling. I want so badly to share my love for Michigan Football with the kids, especially my 6 year son. Truth be told, they just don't have the patience so don't set your expectations too high and don't set yourself up for failure by expecting them to be out there too long. They'll get older soon enough and then you'll get to enjoy it.
A side note..... I have a LOT better success rate bringing them to Yost for hockey games. No idea why that is. Perhaps because we don't have to get there too far before, Maybe because its not quite as cramped and you get two intermissions. Might be a good starter for them.

|15 weeks 3 days ago||On a serious note......||
I've worked on the creation of a couple of scholarships at Michigan via alternative means including online auctions etc. I've always wondered what would happen if we used some form of crowdsourcing to create an MGoScholarship. The scholarship could ultimately be given to a student who worked in the Spts Info Dept of the athletic department or possibly one of the students who do the game broadcasts for WCBN (the student radio station) or even a sportswriter at the Daily who, as part of the scholarship had to write a column for MGoBlog. We could also possibly give it to a student manager of an athletic team since those guys put in as much work as the athletes but don't get anything except some apparel in return. The possibilities for recipients are endless. Just curious what you all think of the concept.
The minimum amount to create an endowed scholarship at Michigan is $25,000 to yield $1,000 interest annually for distribution to the recipient. Are there enough people out there who would donate $25, $50 or $100 to make it happen? Would the MGoBlog staff be willing to incentivize it?

He is widely known to be a large fan of rum and cigars and has been rumored to aid in the taking of fear of curveballs from bats.

Now that Babcock is off the table who would be most likely to succeed Red? Who would be our (realistic) dream hire?

This Facebook page I saw is pumping it out too https://www.facebook.com/maizeandblueforever

I would have gone but the game is on Yom Kippur and I'm Jewish. Not happening. Already eyeballing 2016 and will definitely go. Get a chance to stay in NYC and then come over for the game.

That's basically camouflage at Rutgers.

|20 weeks 17 hours ago||HAPPY GRADUATION WEEKEND||
I know many of the Colleges and Schools hold their ceremonies last night and tonight and then all of the grads get their walk through the Big House tomorrow. Congratulations to the new members of the largest living alumni base in the country.
Don't forget that as a new grad you get a one year free membership to the Alumni Association if you register with them onlione. Congrats to the Class of 2014 and welcome to life on the alumni side.
|20 weeks 3 days ago||IF||
IF this were to happen
1) Who knows, maybe Red would retire right away.
2) If Red didn't retire, obviously Babcock would only be an assistant for a year or two and then be the head coach.
3) OH MY GO DO I WANT THIS TO HAPPEN!!!!!!!
|20 weeks 3 days ago||AHAHAHAHA||
The rumors they be true!!!!!!!
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Yes||
Familiar with these love letters. Instead of chocolates, we get offered free baseball tickets. That's like me giving my wife a set of hubcaps for Sweetest Day.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Ok||
|23 weeks 3 days ago||I tried||
I tried at 9am and wasn't showing anything available. Is it possible it sold out in 30 minutes..
fWIW that presage bs that the athletic sent out was worthless since you didn't have to put in your I.D. You would usually use for season ticket purchases. Scalpels probably got their hands on the presale code and bought it out if it went that fast.
|23 weeks 5 days ago||You're missing the point||
You're missing the point.
I'm not saying players shouldn't get paid. I'm saying I don't want to see colleges associated with a system where they (the colleges) have to get into what amounts to a situation similar to MLB free agency with 18 year old high school athletes. The problem with allowing them to take money for endorsements or autographs is that obviously boosters can preorder thousands of signatures as a bs way to get money to kids. Same is true for endorsements. Big Bobs BarBQ (or Nike for that matter) could guarantee every kid through their owner's college guaranteed contracts to promote their companies even if they never do the work. I don't want to see that. Again, no problem with giving the kids money as long as it's equal at least among the programs that want to play at that level. What I fully expect is another realignment of the NCAA divisions that sees MAC and WAC and pretty much all but maybe fifty or sixty schools to go down a division so they don't have to pay extra benefits. I just don't know that I really see the value or relation for Universities to be attached to what would amount to professional minor league athletics franchises. Why wouldn't there just be actual minor league football franchises. Why do colleges have to be connected.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||This discussion||
This freaking discussion is pointless until someone figures how to do it such that everyone gets paid the same. If the system includes any variability in ability to pay between schools you're basically looking at being pros. It's MLB with no salary cap.
Honest to god, I'd sooner they turn the Big House into a dorm and give up college sports rather than college sports ever turn into a free market for players where the best teams are the one that pay the players the best.

I got that too. Between getting our football PSD renewal stuff right after a loss and now getting the hockey email right after losing to first year team PSU for the THIRD TIME (and representing like 3 of their 5 total wins) you'd think someone with half a brain in the Athletic Dept might want to look at the timing of their communications to donors/ticketholders.
|26 weeks 15 hours ago||..........||
|26 weeks 15 hours ago||Really?||
Where? I saw his last comment was "Fuck Bolivia" but nothing after that indicated the hammer dropped.
|26 weeks 15 hours ago||I didn't see it||
Just ran through the thread (and Nosce Te Ipsum's 6 pages of the same comment). I definitely saw old Section 1 get loose with the hate and anger but he still has 16,000+ points (and for that matter Nosce still has over 6,000+). Generally I thought trips to Bolivia involved negative numbers.

Hopefully Brian and Ace will go into the basement and dust off the box holding the Hello post. It's been way too long.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||Just be careful||
Just be careful. As an active alum and person with family members in their young twenties, every year I hear about guys who screw up their lives or the lives of others on St. Patricks Day either by getting in accidents, by getting a DUI or getting in a bar fight. Last year my law firm represented some kid at OU who got in a bar fight on St. Patricks and the guy he hit not only had him prosecuted but then sued him civilly for all sorts of damages.
Keep your heads together and fergodsakes don't drive!
|26 weeks 4 days ago||So||
So we're talking about seeding at this point? Are we guaranteed to be in the NCAA tourney or do we need to beat Penn State? For that matter do we need to go to the B1G finals to cement our bid?
|26 weeks 4 days ago||I agree||
I agree and we're a different team than the one that plate them earlier in the year. Plus we'll have a week to prep for then since that would be in the round of sixteen. If we play our best, we can bear Duke. If we play like we did against State yesterday (gassed or not) we may not survive ASU/Texas.

At least we'll be playing into the weekend and have something to look forward to tomorrow. Hopefully its a game against the Buckeyes.

It's nice he's checking us out but does anyone else feel like he would need to push back his announcement date for us to have any chance.

Would be an even better #3 option if they get Watkins or Evans. Just saying. I'd like to see Tate in the slot and get another big outside guy.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||Darrelle Revis||
Detroit could become Revis Island. Bucs just cut him for salary cap reasons. Save the pick for a safety or more receiver depth.
The Lions do need one more solid starter at receiver on top of Calvin and Golden Tate.

Can anyone give a score and time remaining update?
|28 weeks 2 days ago||If....||
If there is a banner, trophy or title to somehow be won by Michigan in pretty much anything from football to solar car racing to chess than I'm into it. That said, in the peckin order, I'd put the regular season title above the tourney title.
All that said, I'd certainly like to replace that MBB tourney title banner that was taken down due to the NCAA infractions.
