I haven't posted much but this riles me into action. IMO this loss is BIG. I think of losing Hand as our 4th loss of the year. We should have won, but we blew it. Like Penn St. and Nebraska, Alabama didn't win this one, we gave it away. If we don't implode, DeShawn Hand would be wearing a winged helmet next year.
Because we lost DeShawn Hand, I blame:
#1. Al Borges for failing to gameplan and adjust to a quick release passing game. If he simply had done that, we would undoubtedly be 8-1 (at least) right now, and NOT unraveling. (I bet Greg Mattison hates Al Borges by now. Borges just cost Greg one hell of a tool for his defensive box.
#2. Brady Hoke for backing the playcalling instead of going "all Bo" on Mr. Borges and demanding better!
#3. Fred Jackson for his inability to develop running backs who can block a blitz.
#4. Darrell Funk to a lesser degree (because of youth). But still....underachiever.
#5. Dave Brandon. For rewarding Nick Saban, Alabama, and the unscrupulous SEC recruiting practices that built that recent program by scheduling that season opener vs. Bama last year when his coach had only 1 full recruiting season under his belt. Seriously, how delusional could he be, to put such a "not ready for prime time" product up against the evil empire so early in the transition to Manball? Brandon branded Michigan in front of the nation as "weaklings". Who's getting the most recruiting mileage out of that brilliant move now?
Crap... I want to puke.

He'd rather punch a Clemson player. Now that's a classy coach. Remember, Buckeyedude, you live in a glass house.

MAJOR POINT OF CORRECTION ! This article states the offer at Florida was for Defensive BACKS COACH (NOT DEFENSIVE CO-ORDINATER). Let's not inflate the status of former Carr assistants. That's the kind of erroneous crap that slides right off the former Carr supporters unnoticed. It's consumed like kool-aid as if it were gospel.
If any RR achievement was exagerated it would have immediately been gang tackled and piled on.

Bill Martin was a smart AD. He took over the financial mess left by Tom Goss, and put this program back in the black. He accomplished the impossible by rebuilding the Big House into a upgraded, modern, and beautiful stadium. He also managed to move our football program into the 21st century when he replaced the old coach with a new coach, whose spread offense had become the fashion with teams of modern success.
Mr. Martin may have fumbled during his coaching search, but he recovered when he hired RR. Although there was turbulence, RR was slowly but steadily climbing toward championship altitude if given a little more time to install his style of football here at Michigan. If given a 3rd and 4th recruiting year, I believe RR would have eventually fixed his defense (ala WV) and have an upperclass team competing for a B1G 10 / National Championship in 2012, creating peace and harmony in a fractured family.
Now, however, Dave Brandon is the quarterback calling the plays for this program. And by firing RR after only 3 years, he has shown happy feet in the pocket. Instead of a safe pass, he has panicked... and prematurely punted on 3rd down. He bobbled the coaching search by taking too much time to call the play, resulting in delay of game, and a critical turnover. Brady Hoke is our penalty.
I seriously question some other playcalling of this rookie AD, as well. (I mean, if firing RR was so probable, why in the world would you rush to schedule Alabama for 2012?)
Although, I respect and support Dave Brandon, I am beginning to sorely miss Bill Martin.
