I'm not sure if he would have come. He had just turned down the Alabama job the season before coming to Michigan, and I think it was in that next year that shit really hit the fan at WVU in terms of his relationship with the AD and other powers of the University. We have to remember that although Michigan, especially at that time, was a big step up from WVU in terms of prestige, he was coaching at his alma mater and regularly in the hunt for BCS bowls and NC games. So I don't think he would have come then, because I think at the time he was still really happy at WVU.
As far as the Lloyd Carr retiring aspect of your question, that is not really that far fetched. From everything I heard, Lloyd wanted to retire as early as 2003. He was persuaded to stay on and then had the Hart, Henne, Long group and stayed for a few years. Then he was rumored to want to leave following the 2006 season (this may have been in JUB's book) and was again persuaded to stay until 2007 when those guys all graduated.
It is interesting to look back at coaches available in 2005 and who we could have had. Saban was in the NFL, Spurrier just came back to college in 2005. Les Miles was in his first year at LSU after Saban left. Urban Meyer went to Florida in 05. Brian Kelly was at CMU (though I have heard that he was never considered for either the Michigan job or the MSU job because he's a huge ass hole. Not sure if thats true but those are the rumblings I've heard). Basically the who's who of college football coaches were on the move in 2005. Interesting to think about which one's would have considered Michigan at the time, especially with a loaded roster and none of the smear of the last 7 years on the program at the time.

Preach on brother!
Also, based on your username I would guess that John Harbaugh is your preferred coach so you can add Jo?
Wont work so well with Jim or Les (or their last names).
Tell you what, I'll go ahead and start wishing for John Harbaugh for the sake of your username.

Interesting take from the bay area. I encourage you all to read that. This article makes it seem like things might start happening soon in SF.

|1 day 16 hours ago||That was my first in person||
That was my first in person viewing of The Game! I picked a good one. Will also never forget the naked guy, with a Block M painted on his back, streaking from the South Endzone to the North Endzone. An image that was burned into my young mind.
One comment on the actual video: Why on earth is there so much space between the 2 and the 1 on the front of his jersey?
|2 days 3 hours ago||I didn't misinterpret||
I didn't misinterpret anything. I was at student body walk-on tryouts twice while in undergrad at U of M while Lloyd Carr was the coach. So when he says this:
I'm reasonably certain Carr held no such tryouts, and I'm guessing Hoke immediately abandoned them per his and Brandon's "Purge All Remnants of the Rodriguez Era" edict.
So, no, I'm not being touchy. He is claiming "reasonable certainty" about something that is completely untrue, and he also "guessed" that Hoke and Brandon did away with them immediately. Again, somethign that isn't true. If he didn't want a "touchy" response he could have asked his question very simply by saying: "do student body open try-outs still exist?"
See how easy that was for me to ask without having to make claims that our former and current coaches didn't have them, when he obviously has no clue at all.

Except O'neill and Wermers left after a year (IE with Coach Rod still in control) and Campbell and Washington both played defense. So that makes 2009 only have 2 guys in it. And then he took 1 guy in 2010.
So in a 3 year period where you should take anywhere from 10-15 lineman we had 7. That causes issues. Which we saw last year.

To Ron in NJ.
You are wrong about student body tryouts under Lloyd Carr. He definitely had them, because I attended 2 of them while I was on campus.
Just because they aren't publicized as much doesn't mean they don't exist.
But by all means keep piling on to our current and former coaches/AD.
