further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
|1 week 1 day ago||If you're from the motor city...||
you can relate to this story,
I grew up handing my dad wrenches when I was a little boy.
One of the best memories of all the times we did things together was when I took him out for a ride in my '63 1/2 Galaxie 500 fastback with the 390 cubic inch 375 horsepower Police Interceptor motor.
My dad was great at putting the 'tune' on a 4barrel carbureted engine so I let him set up the Galaxie's carb, then we took her out on Telegraph for some fun and to show off a bit... We had a great time that day and there are some great memories that came flooding back when I read this account.
I'll bet I feel the same type of memories coming back to me this fall at the Big House as Jim brings out his version of the well-oiled machine that Bo used to run up and down Main street back in '69.
I can't wait to hear her roar into life...

...who loved playing football. I loved watching him block for Gordie Bell and Ricky Leach, and in his senior year, watching him run roughshod over Michigan's opponents.

Now he will live on forever as a Michigan great.

Personally I hate Ohio State as much as the rest of you and their arrogance will be insufferable if they win on Monday night but it will be good for the B1G and all of the schools in the conference will benefit, it will also make things much more interesting next November in Ann Arbor.

|8 weeks 2 days ago||I have heard this and...||
a good friend of mine played against him in high school. He played QB for Crestwood and would always tell the story about how he threw 2 touchdown passes to Wheatley when Crestwood played Robichaud. That's right two pick 6's in one game, he said he was a man among boys in high school.
My personal best memory of him was during the Penn State game at the Big House in 1994, when he scored twice in the 3rd quarter to put Michigan back into the game. When he scored the 2nd touchdown he did the Superman pose right in front us in the north end-zone. This was just before the "Miami" rule. Needless to say, the crowd went wild, that my friends is something I will never forget...
It would be awesome to have him back here coaching Derrick Green, Ty Issac, and hopefully Mike Weber...

Seriously though, you nailed it. The Sparty's are very nervous, the Buckeyes are uncertain of their future in the rivalry.
The thing that I'm most excited to see is how Coach Harbaugh develops the talent that Hoke brought in, that will tell the story of what kind of coach Jim Harbaugh is, and will legitimize Brady Hoke's recruiting legacy.

This is why Brandon Must go first. Then a strong but non meddeling AD has to be hired. Someone who can bring James Joesph Harbaugh back to Michigan.

The first time was when Bo retired, my feelings were that the foundation of Michigan football had been torn away from me.
The second, was when Bo died, I was such an emotional wreck I had to leave work and then I went home and wept all the rest of the day.
Now, tears of pride and joy, that's a different story entirely, many times, too many to count, hell, I get a little choked up when the team charges out of the tunnel.
Did I mention that I love Michigan football almost as much as my wife of 27 years, and the only reason that she rates higher is because she is the one that suggested that we try to get on the waiting list for season tickets back in 1992.

Especially about the getting after people's asses, this is the year for the defense.
If they can hold people to 20 points or less a game we will be in every one and have a chance to win them all.
I'm not saying we will win every game just saying we will have a chance to do so.

Michigan 63 - Northwestern 20.... That was my first game in Michigan Stadium, I remember Harlan Huckleby fumbling several pitches on the option out of bounds.

|37 weeks 6 hours ago||That is a fallacy pure and simple...||
Hoke went 11-2 with Denard and mostly Carr Leftovers, Molk, Schofield, VanBergen, RR's legacy at Michigan was the 2009 and 2010 classes. The attrition from those 2 years is absolutely horrible and Michigan paid for it last year by putting raw offensive line talent on the field.

|1 year 5 weeks ago||This is....||
what I've been saying for years. Not every kid is cut out for college..... a lot of kids choose which college they attend on scholarship as to how it relates to their NFL draft status.
IMHO this is not what the college game should be about, it was originally created to give kids who did not have the financial means necessary to obtain a higher education the avenue to get a college education.
If you had a pro league for 18 to 23 year olds you could pay those kids whose sole goal is to get to the NFL. Those kids who know the value of a college education could still go that route.
This way everyone wins, the kids who want to get paid do just that, the kids who seek a degree can do so. I feel that college football is being loosened upon more and more as a developmental league for the NFL and is somewhat losing its luster.
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Hell, Saban doesn't care about these kids at all..||
Last year he jerked a kid's offer after he committed to Bama because a higher ranked kid said he would commit to them.
While I can understand that teams want to acquire the best talent this is the kind of thing that should give your program a black eye not elevate it to a higher level.

I love going to the Big House though and watching the Wolverines play, just how much is the question.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||1995 clinched it for me...||
As my wife and I were walking into the Big House on that November day we were behind a group of buckeye fans, and one of them was going on about how We're going to give the ball to our All-American running back Eddie George who will have the All-American tackle Orlando Pace blocking for him... If they stop that we'll throw the ball to our All-American tight end Ricky Dudley, if he's covered there's always our All-American WR Terry Glenn.... we can't lose....
That was when I spoke up... and said... Hey! this is Michigan and Ohio State this is the Rivalry Game I promise you this team will be ready to play... The buckeye fans dismissed me as just another Wolverine crank....
You all know what happened that day... Biakbuta ran wild on the OSU Defense and the young freshman Charles Woodson established himself as a force by intercepting a Terry Glenn target in the end zone to kill an OSU drive before the half and we never looked back... I will got to my grave with the fourth quarter memory of Tim Biakabutka running for a first down to ice the game carrying three OSU defenders on his back... I swear that the sun broke through a cloud and the rays shined down on Number 21 as he rushed for 313 yards that day...
I never felt more vindicated in my life, '95was a disappointing season to say the least but beating OSU on that Saturday afternoon lessened the bitterness of that season..
That being said Tressell with his smarmy cocksucker look drove my hatred of the Buckeye's to new levels of hatred. Re-sodding the toilet bowl 1 week before the 2006 game rates as one of the crappiest things ever done to gain a home field advantage..

the 16-14 loss to Purdue in 1976. Michigan was ranked #1 all season long up until then and they dominated the oppositon in every phase of the game, #1 offense #1 defense and they finished out the Big Ten season with a total domination of the Buckeyes in the 'Shoe' 22-0.
If we don't lose to Purdue and the Ref's don't give Charles White a 'Phantom Touchdown' in the Rose Bowl it would have been one of the most dominating single seasons in College Football history.
Michigan ended the season ranked first in the country in total offense (448.1 yards per game), scoring offense (38.7 points per game), and scoring defense (7.2 points per game).
It was magical season until November 9th 1976, I listened to the game on the radio and couldn't believe my ears when it was over and we lost.

Brash, irascable, and speaks what is on his mind, and to hell with the consequences.
He may have said things that were unpleasant for the program and those of us that love it to hear, but he believed in his heart that they were true. You can't fault a man for speaking what he sees as the truth.
Like it or not he is part of the Michigan Family and we should accept him warts and all.
If he leads the 49er's to victory in the Super Bowl I feel assured that his mentor Bo Schembechler will be smiling down upon him knowing full well that the lessons that he imparted to him were an everlasting contribution to his success in his life.

Now take care of business, Step one: find Gittleson's anvil. Step two: Pick it up (Just like Jake did). Step three: grind opposing D players bones into dust. Step four: Win B1G title.
Thanks for being a true Michigan Man!

You've heard me yell his name for over a year now, This kid's got a great motor and nose for the ball and has been my favorite Michigan defender since the EMU game last year.
He's always around the football making bad things happen for the opposing offense and, good things for the Michigan defense.
"JAKE RYAN!!!!" is that a name made for football or what!
|2 years 18 weeks ago||23-17 Michigan||
279 rushing yards.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||Yup....||
I've been saying so since last year.

All-American next year... I've been saying it to anyone who would listen since last year the Kid's a baller.
He's always around the football and he finds ways to make plays. Plus he's got a name tailor made for football Jake Ryan!
|2 years 20 weeks ago||I agree 1000% with this Statement...||
let's not sink down to their level.
That being said "SPARTY NO!"

We'd go over to the Lindell AC twice a week for burgers and beers after work. The Detroit sports history oozed from every crevice of the place just like the grease from the burgers.
A great place and I still miss it everytime we head downtown for a sporting event.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Hitting in practice....||
I thought that went the way of the T-Rex /s.
Ya gotta love the level of physicality in practice, it tranlates to toughness on game day.
Next year you'll be hearing all the talking heads saying things like: "Michigan is as tough and physical a football team as I have seen." When they start talking like that we'll be watching our guys punch their opponents in the mouth, and take their lunch money.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Not many guys like this left....||
Tom Osborne is a class act all the way, he has done much for college athletics and the University of Nebraska and the State of Nebraska as well.
His teams were well coached, disciplined and played clean tough football, because of guys like him Bo, Bear Bryant, John McKay, and a few others who made college football the great game it is today.
I wish him well in his future endeavours and much happiness for him and his family.
Thanks for your contibutions to the game we love so much Dr. Tom!
Good luck and Godspeed on your journey down Retirement Lane.

|2 years 23 weeks ago||I don't think that the series will resume anytime soon...||
ND doesn't want to play schools from the B1G anymore so that they can expand their "National" footprint.
This is actually good for Michigan i'd like to see Michigan start a rivalry up with Cal or Georgia, both schools matchup with us well from an academic and football perspective.
"Bite Me Irish!"
|2 years 24 weeks ago||The TD run at the end of that awesome tribute video...||
was the first of two long TD runs by Ty Wheatley that got us back into that game, it was an awesome display and we were going up against an undefeated Penn State team that featured Ki-Jana Carter at tailback. Wheatley kicked his ass.
It was too bad that we came out on the short end of the scoreboard that day. After Tyrone scored his second TD in the third quarter, he took off his helmet and did the Superman pose in our endzone.
I thought for sure he was going to lead us single handedly to victory that day. But alas it was not to be, he reinjured his shoulder and the freshman version Tshumanga Biakabutuka was not yet up to that task.
I have seen many great backs play in Michigan Stadium, Tony Boles, Leroy Hoard, Ricky Powers, Tshumanga Biakabutuka , A-Train, Chris Perry, Harlan Huckleby, Butch Woolfolk, Mike Hart and the oppositions players, IMHO Tryone Wheatley had it all, speed, power ball security, pass catching ability, and he is the gold standard by which I judge Michigan running backs.
Thanks for the Video WH, it brought back some great memories.
|2 years 25 weeks ago||Been Sitting in Section 34 Row B Seats 1&2...||
with my wife for 18 years now and I can tell you unequivocally that the ball crossed the goal line before Fitz's knee hit the turf because it happened right in front of me, I have seen so many great plays there in the last 18 years. The drama of Braylonfest was played out in front of me, I love my seats and will never give them up as long as I'm alive.
Yeah getting out of the stadium is kind of a bitch but the view is worth it!
|2 years 25 weeks ago||We were overrated to begin the season with...||

|2 years 26 weeks ago||What an insightful post...||
|2 years 26 weeks ago||This... Is what teams are going to try to do....||
...against us all year. Make Denard beat them with his arm. Unfortunately it really hasn't happened yet.
I know it's water under the bridge but boy we really need an experienced WR right now like Daryl Stonum. Oh well I know Hoke & Co. will get the best out of what we have available to us...
|2 years 26 weeks ago||Why is everyone here Penciling in a ND win here?!?||
What have they done over the last three years? I'll take our dilithium-powered Senoir QB over anything they put on the field.
This is the Way I see it.

I've been doing this stuff for 20+ years now and it never gets better you'll get called on holiday's, anniversary's, weekends, and every other inoppotune moment of your private life.
The people who are calling you are never happy to see you and when you resolve their problem you'll be lucky to get a thank you, in fact the usual response is "what took you so long". Just recently for example my teammate moved 2 TB of data and over 2,000 users data to another disk attached to the same server, 12 user's data got missed and the management rated it as a failed effort.
I said in our team meeting 'you can't fix stupid'.
I'm hoping to get my BBQ catering business going soon and leave this Rat Race behind.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Ask them about the Barmaid...||
down at Dan's Downtown tavern, sitting on Rich Rod's lap.
Why is a married football coach at the bar with an umarried woman on his lap?
Answer: Because he is a scumbag, I'll bet he told Rita that he was watching film to get ready for the upcoming game.

|2 years 35 weeks ago||I was at lunch when the story broke....||
I called the wife and told her, then went back to work I only stayed there for an hour or so then went home sat down and wept for the rest of the day. The only other time I shed tears for Michigan Football was the day Bo retired.
He was like a father figure in my life and although I was not connected to him in any way he was a great influence on my life, the message he delivered up until the day he died was one that can inspire people to accomplish things that they could have never concieved as possible.
Bo was able to walk with Kings without losing the common touch, that is truly what made him a legend to me.

He's owning up to his responsibilities and paying restitution. I think he's met all the obligations laid out before him.

but dumping the patches and creating a "Ring Of Honor" . I think this is the way for all the great legacies of Michigan football to be displayed for all to see.
It Must be done with class though, the way the Cowboys do it would be the example to follow. IMHO

|2 years 40 weeks ago||That is a clear and lucid point.....||
And one that my wife compared with Rich Rod right away, She said "If Dick Rod was the coach I'd be feeling sorry for the kid, But look how Brady handles the situatuion".
Everyone in our section that heard her nodded their heads in agreement.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||If you are intending to slight Ezeh....||
I'll put this here.... From Wikipedia
"At Michigan, he redshirted as a true freshman. Then, as a redshirt freshman for the 2007 Michigan Wolverines football team, he battled for the starting middle linebacker position and appeared to have lost the position early in the season. However, after an injury he became a regular starter. He concluded the season with thirteen and twelve tackle efforts against bitter rivals Michigan State and Ohio State, respectively. He started his redshirt sophomore season with a Big Ten Conference defensive player of the week, fifteen-tackle effort for the 2008 Michigan Wolverines football team. He finished the season as an honorable mention All-Big Ten Conference selection. Just after earning 2009 midseason Butkus Award watchlist recognition, he was removed from the starting lineup and saw limited action in the final four games."
He fell off the planet after RR took over, and I may be stating the obvious here, young football talent needs to be developed, this is usually accomplished by coaching young men up, not throwing them under the bus in the face of losses as RR often did.
How does someone go from midseason Butkus Award watchlist to part time player to wrap up the season?!?

|3 years 7 weeks ago||What an insightful well thought out post...||
Allow me to concur and present my summation of your well written passage.
Jim Harbaugh can talk the talk because he walks the walk.
Brady Hoke. brings much joy and gladness to my heart, but I so wanted Michigan to successfully court Harbaugh, who knew that he would become so white hot at the end of the last season. I am very glad Coach Hoke leads Michigan he gets it, looking back on the whole thing Brady Hoke is what Michigan needs and vice versa.
I figured that Harbaugh's Rah Rah style wouldn't carry over to the pro's, boy was I wrong.
I thought the 49ers would be in the running for the Andrew Luck bowl instead they are in the NFC championship game.
Congrats Jim you are always true blue in my heart!

Coach Hoke learned well from his mentors, he makes sure he does what he says, and that i something truly lacking in this day and age.
What can I say he gets "it".........
As far as all those shiny big name coaches go Coach Hoke outshines them all in my book.

I was alright unti I saw this stuff here today, I've spent most of the day fighting back the tears, I never met him in person but he was a great force in my life. His moral and ethics were in the place where I have strived to be all my life, no-nonsense no excuses and how hard work is it's own reward.
I got a lot from my Dad as well but Bo was the other other piece of the puzzle in my youth. I'll never forget being at an Ohio State game in the '90's and there was a contest to win a trip to Michigan's bowl game and he was drawing the winner at halftime, When He walked out to the 50 yard line to draw the winner the "Bo is God" chant started and the love that poured into the old hole in the ground was just amazing. Of course he would hear nothing of it and quieted the crowd so that he could draw the name of the fan that would see the Team win it's bowl game.
Sorry if I'm rambling but Bo Schembechler has left a lasting impression on me that I will never forget, and I nver played for him or met him on any personal level. But I respected him and he (without knowing) helped me become the man I am today.

Then I'd have reported it to my Boss just like he did, and then if there wasn't a story in the newspaper the next day announcing the arrest of Jerry Sandusky for the commission of acts of preversion (Col B.A.T. Guano Pronunciation) against a youth I would have drove to the police station and reported it to the desk officer on duty. If no action was taken by the local P.D. I would have called the state authorities.
As the father of two children I would not rest until I made sure that this monster was behind bars.

I hoped for a better showing in the bowl game, but I knew that that wasn't happening after the football bust.
It was time for a change, and I'm hoping that Hoke comes through for the Michigan tradition.

A question for those in attendance last night. Was the the most alive you've ever seen the Big House?
This is my 17th season as a season ticket holder, and with the possible exception of the '97 victory over Ohio State I have never seen the crowd into a game as last night.
