Coach Hoke recently made an interesting comment about playing with an "edge". I'm looking for our team to play with an "edge" going forward.

You made some sound observations. However, I believe the struggles Ohio is having now actually are relevant for when we play them.
Freshman quarterback. (Will still be a freshman when we play.)
Offensive line inexperience and uncertainty. That can be a hard problem to correct. (As we've been through it.)
No Carlos H to bail them out. (Although I'm sure they do keep a good bailbondsman on retainer to bail them out.)
Defense seemed slower, tentative. (Okay, option can throw you off.)
Urb has a short shelf life. His hyper style wears out his welcome when things don't break just right. (One minute you're on top; the next minute you're alone, eating pizza in a golf cart.)

That's certainly not an unfavorable comparison. But by the fourth time Galloway said that it was getting stale.
|19 hours 4 min ago||We have||
We have college football top ten defensive and offensive coordinators. We have high-level players who Hoke recruited despite everything. They work and play together as a team.
This year, for the first time in a long time, every one of those young men on the field is given the guidance and opportunity to play to the best of his ability.
Godspeed Michigan. Stand strong with your team.

Coach Hoke needs a strong offensive coordinator. The players need someone with real hands on football experience, who interacts with them personally. Our team needed an infusion of energy and leadership.
Coach Nussmeier brings all this and more.

I told you then, I'm telling you now.
At the end of the season last year I strongly maintained that Al Borges needed to go, that he would be replaced, and things would then improve. I was often downvoted for my strong position, by the weenies who went soft and gave up.
We now have a college football top ten DC and OC. We have a head coach who recruits very well, and keeps a level head. We have a group of players with a lot of heart, who are working together and pulling for each other.
Mark my words: This is going to be a good season. We have a legitimate opportunity to make the Rose Bowl this year. Stand strong with your team.

Auction off the numbers, like we do with the coaches.
For a suitable donation, number thirty-four could be the "Mack and Mary Smith #34".
Number thirty-five could be the "Bill and Betty Jones #35". And so on.
Since it's my idea, I get 10% of the proceeds. Hey, I'll use the money to buy a number.

Who are you to be using foul langauge and calling people names. The people who were too lazy and complacent to speak up are the ones who should be ashamed. The ignorant ones who defended such poor performance should be quiet. The weaklings who suppressed those who care about the University of Michigan and have a committment to higher standards, those weaklings are the traitors to a long and honored tradition.
The question of who was right or wrong in this debate was clearly settled by the decsion of Dave Brandon and Brady Hoke. Those who had the courage to speak up, whether they lost silly points or not, now stand justified.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||My theory||
My theory is that that Dave called Brady and said, "I've been reading the well reasoned evaluations that BIGBLUEWORLD has been posting about Al, and it makes a lot of sense."
Then Brady said, "Son of a gun. I was just reading his comments, and he's right. You know some of those other dimwits even took points away from him for having the courage to speak up. We gotta' do something about this!"
Then Dave replied, "I'm with you, dude. Got anyone in mind."
Then Brady says, "Well you know..."
And the rest is history.
That's my theory.

Michigan at #2 or #3 most valuable college program was becoming a declining asset. Good investment by Dave Brandon.
Leadership quality and winning attitude is priceless.

"unsubstantiated rumor" and ""emphasis on rumor" is clearly not quoting anything. Is it? Keep it straight.
But now that you mention catapult, Johnny of Jimmy could catapult Michigan into the Empyrean heights of college football in a heartbeat. Do you want to try to tell me stranger things have never happened?
Thank you. Seriously, cool dog BiSB.

With emphasis on rumor, this comes from Ace Williams.

The best news I have to offer is an unsubstantiated rumor [from Ace Williams that is certainly fabricated because it came from Ace Williams.]

ED:BISB - NO ACE WILLIAMS.

I agree Al would be a perfect fit for them, but I'm not exactly thinking Golden.

I don't need to hear any comments about this. I was there watching Bo lead his team.

I agree you can make a case to support Hoke and Mattison. That's all I've got to say.

This reminds me: Someone needs a sense of humor.
Through the quantuum mechanics Law of Reciprocity, off topic comments on off topic posts coherently transform to attain the state of "On Topic". Forgot that, didn't you?

This reminds me: We need a new OC.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Any thoughts||
Any thoughts on a pro OC or former pro OC who might be available? We're doing fine with Mattison. How about finding an OC of his caliber. We'd be looking reeeeal good if we acquired such a coach. Just sayin'.

Jeffy re: "whining bitches". We're rubber, you're glue. It bounces off us and sticks to you.
Nevertheless, it's a free country. You can extend your warm affection towards Al.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Thanks for showing care||
Thank you for showing care and realistic expectation for improving this football team, westwardwolverine, Magnum. P.I. and the many others who keep it civil yet speak up.
I strongly yet respectfully disagree with the "business as usual crowd" who are resigned to an erratic, inefficient offense. Do you have mixed emotions about winning? Are you short selling Michigan stock?
How can anyone be complacent when we have a good head coach, a good defensive coordinator, a great tradition, national alumni and fan base. Then there's the offensive coordinator who uses double speak to blame the players for his lack of leadership. Hoke's experience is primarily with defense. We need a strong OC with leadershp quality and the ability to make halftime adjustments that work.
How do we know he lacks leadership? The results speak for themselves. "By their fruits ye shall know them." If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it's a duck. With due respect for Al's effort, he is failing. Why should we, especially the players, all be dragged down to his level of failure?
