Yeah, Nintendo of America bought them in the 90s to prevent the team from moving out of Seattle. Their president of baseball operations, Howard Lincoln, was one of Nintendo's main lawyers in the 70s and 80s, and helped counter sue Universal Studios when they tried getting Donkey Kong off of the market. Lincoln plowed through Universal's bullshit, won the case, and got them to pay money to Nintendo.
Anyways, NoA let then-GM Bll Bavasi spend money. Unfortunately Bill Bavasi was possibly the worst GM in the history of GMs, and paid never was players a lot of money en route to the Mariners being the first team ever to lose 100 games while having a 100 million dollar payroll.
Since that debacle and Bavasi getting fired, the Mariners have been lowering payroll every year until all of Bavasi's horrible contracts have come off the books. Now before Cano's signing and arbitration, the Mariners have 33.25 million on their payroll. So they have A LOT of money to spend, and they made the biggest splash they possibly could, and have a lot of money left over to get some more players.

Prince Fielder is getting paid just as much as Cano.
I don't think 25 mil annually in baseball is gonig to be as big of a deal in 5 years than it is now, or five years ago.

1. This shouldn't surprise anyone. Al Borges was not making an excuse when he said this was the first year they werei nstalling the offense they wanted to run. A lot of the calls he made were the right calls. Guys were open down field. Gardner missed them. Probably because he had a guy in his face in 2 seconds.
2. Hoke and Brandon haven't done their evaluations of the program yet. That won't happen until after the bowl game. This isn't set in stone.

The OL has to be better overall, which I think it will. Magnuson has shown glimpses of being very good, and he'll move to OT next year. Glassgow may move over back to LG if Kugler shows he can call protections well enough. He had decent size coming in as a freshman (6-5/ 287) so I am sure he will be at or pretty close to starting size next year with an offseason of weight lifting. He's already as big as Miller, and has had two fewer years in the program.
My prediction for the starting OL next year would be:
Young again, yes. But this is what happens when you have 2 OL in 2010 and 2011.

Arizona's OL currently consists of 2 RS Juniors at the tackle positions, a Junior at Center, a Sophomore at LG and a Senior at RG.
That is a lot better than having 2 RS Seniors at the tackle positions, a RS Sophomore walk on at Center and a true Freshman and RS Freshman at the guard positions.
They have one underclassman on the OL. We have three. Arizona's entire offense has four underclassmen starting. Three of them are WRs. As we see from their typical stat sheet, they don't pass much.

I agree. Who knows what may have happened if Casteel came with him. I wanted Rod to stay for another year, but it iddn't happen. Time to move on. Hoke won 12 B1G games in two years and beat all three of the big rivals.
Now he has a bit of a gap in depth. 12 scolarship seniors this year and 13 next year. We currently have 39 true and RS Freshmen. I can't express enough how much people need to chill the fuck out about this.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||A lot of these things you say||
A lot of these things you say at the end can equate to the current Michigan team. 3/5 OL will return more experienced. 4/5* Sophomore QB will be ready if Gardner pulls some more Gardner things.
Almost the entire defense comes back (I think only players that played plenty that are gone are QWash, Gordon, Avery, Cam and Black). Everyone else (JMFR, Clark, Countess, Taylor, Wilson, Wormley, Mario, Beyer, Morgan, Ross) and guys liek Stribling will be a yearwiser, stronger from the offseason, and be able to finished those plays like against Penn State.
Our experienced depth is crap this year. However, we only lose 12 guys to eligibility.

All I am going to say is all the RichRod apologists in this thread should cut Hoke a break since the depth is fucked because of RichRod failures in recruiting, like RichRod was fucked from Carr letting guys transfer out at will.

This all could've been avoided if we took more than 1 OL in 2010, who wound up never playing for Michigan, and was a center.

Just for giggles I looked at Alabama is the same time frame of the RichRod classes. They took 7 OL in 2009. Since then theyve alternated between taking 3 and 4 OL per class.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Our recruiting of OL||
Our recruiting of OL 2009-2011
Analysis: Way too few guys, especially when one of them is on our defensive line right now.
Analysis: RichRod fucked up. Big time. Pace didn't play a snap for the team outside of practice, eventally getting a career ending injury. This is the class I point to in general for a lot of our problems, since only 9 guys out of a class of 27 are still in the program.
Analysis: Good God the minimal OL continues. Posada hardly even practiced before he decided football wasn't for him. Bryant would be, and still could be, a very good guard for us. But his knee and shoulder need to be 100% first.
So in three classes we recruited 6 offensive linemen. One plays on defense now, one quit football, and another got a career ending injury. After this year, we will have one OL lineman left from three classes. That, my fellow Wolverine fans, is absolutely unacceptable.
Now, look at OL recruiting 2012-now
Jon Runyan Jr.
So in 2013 alone we got as many guys for the OL than RichRod did in three years. So yeah, I am willing to cut a break on OL play here because the depth overall is pretty laughable, especially when, no matter how talented and highly regarded, it is generally viewed that OL don't/shouldn't see the field until they're at least a RS Sophomore. That means currently we have Bryant, Lewan, Schofield, Glassgow. That's. It. People are tending to shit all over Kalis, but remember he's a RS Frosh. As Brian said on a pod cast once, OL recruit rating is almost like a crap shoot. I have full confidence though that Kalis will pull through and become a good to great OL for the team over the next three years.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Considering the defense was||
Considering the defense was on short fields most of the day today, guys like Hand will probably uneffected.

Sure, I understand. However, what would be your first choice for play after the interception? Borges chose the zone read. Once that failed for the tenth time of the game that drive was already done.

This absolutely is not the same team. In 2011 we had guys like Mike Martin, RVB on the DL, and guys like Molk on the OL. Odds are we wont have a capable center like Molk again until Kugler is ready.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Erm||
I saw one screen. They attempted another screen and Gardner had no one to throw it to if I remember right. The one that did work, however, got like 8 or 9 yards.
And they really didn't spread it out either. I don't see the hestitation to go 3 or 4 wide most downs. Plenty of pro style NFL offenses do it.

Lewan, Schofield, Cam Gordon, Thomas Gordon, QWash, Fitz, Gallon, Gibbons I believe are the only ones left from the 09 class.
What's troubling is that they're all 5th year seniors (Roh, Denard, Vinny Smith, Big Will) all graduated in 4 years, yet, are only 1 shy from matching the amount of players left from the 2010 class (9).

Some of the coaching calls in this game were atrocious. Why Borges kept calling the zone read when it would lose like 5 yards every time is beyond me.
However, Gardner simply had no time to throw the ball. Narduzzi found the holes to blitz through constantly, and whenever the line held up their end of the bargain for a moment, Fitz would get blown up trying to block.
If I had to blame a coach for this game, it's Funk. He hasn't gotten these guys ready to play it seems for two years now.
However, I mostly blame the tire fires that are the 2010 and 2011 recruiting classes.

Whatever works. I mean, Williams was used to block, and he got beat a lot this year. Kicking Magnuson out wouldn't be bad. Max protect Gardner so he hopefully doesn't see a whole lot of pressure.

They really should think about using Kalis or Bryant in Williams' spot. Might as well, Williams never goes out for passes anyways.

Recruits always come off a visit on a high for that school. He needs to sit back and take it all in. He still has a game in The Swamp to attend and I am sure he will be glowing about thatbas well.

Funchess is easily the best bet. He is a mismatch for everyone on defense. Gardner just needs to time to set and throw.

Magnuson is going to get yanked by the end of the first quarter. It's ine thing playing an undersized tackle at guard against Indiana. It's a whole different game against State.

You're honestly trying to get a discussion on if a group of kids that at most are true sophomores have busted?
I'll say what I said in another thread. This year should be the 2010 class' team. Unfortunately, of that 27 member class, only 9 are still on the team. Only 1 offensive lineman was taken in that class, and he didn't see a snap. That class killed our upperclassmen depth.
I mean come on. Why is such a silly topic being discussed?
|6 weeks 6 days ago||People don't seem to get how bad the 2010 class is||
People don't seem to get how bad the 2010 class is going to effect the team. You can't have a complete tire fire of a class, especially one of that size. 27 kids, only 9 left on the team. That kills depth.

Biggest change will probably be putting Kalis back at RG. Magnuson will get eaten alive against State. Bosch didn't seem too bad, but no idea if that's because he's just good or it's IU.

There really shouldn't be anything big to do to them. They've self imposed bowl bans already, so I doubt they'll do that, all I can think of is some schollie reductions for a couple years.

There's no way they plan on doing any manball, or even tackle over with Magnuson in at guard. They just can't be that stupid to think that'll work. I'll be looking for primarily shotgun spread formations to give Gardner room to run when Magnuson gets blown up.

Borges was the victim of poor recruiting by Tubberville at Auburn.
And right now he is working with a highly inexperienced OL, which has rattled the confidence of our QB. I know he went full insanity definition in OT, but the offense still score like 30 or more points in regulation.
Only coach I would reslly put on notice is Funk. And again, he has 2 RS Sophomores and a RS Freshman as his interior line. They normally shouldn't be playing til they're RS Juniors.

I say this because thats when Hoke's first full class will be seniors and RS Juniors.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Game summed up in one word||
Not dialing up any blitzes on Penn States drive to tie, completely gutless playcalling by Borges, taking a delay of game when you have time outs, running Fitz up the middle when that hasn't worked all night.
This was a perfect storm of ineptitude. Fire Borges.
