RR and Mattison, that would have been sweet. It is amazing that Michigan basically at least tripled what it spends on assistants for hoke over RR.

When did it become a requirement that someone is from the michigan family to be the head coach here? Are we that insular that we can't accept outsiders? All a "Michigan Man" is is a stand up guy that does the right thing in the right way. The guy that lives by the axiom of "the measure of a man is what he would do if he knew he would never get caught." Who cares where that guy comes from. in general I think it is is good to have some new life in the program for ideas.
Case in point. I went to Tufts. Played lacrosse there. While I was there our coach bolted for another team and a guy from outside the program was hired. He was the most passionate lacrosse coach I ever played for and his teams went to the wall for him. We got better each year. They won the national title this year under his leadership. That is what we need. A guy that breathes new energy into the program and gets the players riled up to play and will follow him to the ends of the earth. That is more important than him being in some way connected to Michigan football over a decade ago.

Was clearly an amazing coach. 4 trips to the national championship at 1-AA, not II. 3 wins in the NC. 9 playoff appearances. (Thank you wikipedia). But that record overall if you read the page is amazing. He was like 137-50-2. I don't care what level you are at. That proves you can coach. Hoke is 48-50 or something like that. It isn't the same.

I'm not entirely sure why the option wasn't keeping RR with a high powered DC coming in that had something in his contract that said, even if the HC gets fired in a year you stay or get paid a big payoff. That would have attracted some good DC talent and given the team more time to gel, given stability to the recruiting class and been more effective than what is going on now.

And if my Aunt had balls she would be my Uncle. So basically if we just change Cousin's throws from hitting state receivers to michigan dbs then basically the score could have been 49-0.
