I wish it was me throwing something at the clown!
|3 days 3 hours ago||Maybe...||
Maybe it's that you just don't undertsnad football, because the Mullen love is for pretty good (and obvious) reason in my books.
|3 days 3 hours ago||It's a reflection of Miss St.||
I find it incredibly odd that posters on this board can't understand that the univeristy has a lot to do with recruiting. When you are recruiting the south and have to compete against Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Florida, Florida State, Miami (YTM), Georgia, etc etc etc and only have Miss. State and it's history to fall back on do you really think it has any reflection on Mullen as a recruiter that he loses those battles?
Recruiting aside, looking at his performance in the SEC over the years people still come away thinking he isn't a good coach. This blows my mind. He is in the toughest conference in college football and goes to battle against those teams with 2 and 3* recuits and has built a team that competes, and this year has won it's fair share, against the powers in that conference. I'm baffled as to why people are selling this guy short. I would take him a close third behind Harbaugh and Stoops.

needs more HARBAUGH!!!!

I would have liked to have him as a fall back option....Dang!
|4 days 22 hours ago||I hear you...||
Honestly, if Harbaugh and Stoops are no's than I would love to see either Mullen or Herman and I'm not even sure which I would rather see. I mean Mullen has HC experience, but I find the idea of Herman very intriguing.
|4 days 22 hours ago||I'm not sure about that...||
I think the wizard hat played the bigger role in Roundtree coming here.
|5 days 3 hours ago||If this is true....||
I love the direction this is going. A move away from all the over weight bald senior citizens to a young, in shape vibrant staff. Keep Manning on and let the rest of the dead weight go. Actually, I wouldn't be crushed if Nuss stayed on to give him an actual chace. If nothing else we saw improvement on the d-line. Just get some young guys in here.
|5 days 3 hours ago||What IS this?||
I need to know...what is this from?
|5 days 22 hours ago||Sad Herman is gone....||
I thought he would have been a decent option. If anyone asked me (which they certainly wouldn't, but still) I would have gone: Harbaugh, Stoops, Mullin, Herman, Miles then Mora. I would be ecstatic with any of them but that would be the order in which I would select them.
|5 days 22 hours ago||I wasn't and english major...||
but doesn't "either" imply two? Either of those three just doesn't sound right to me, but as I say, I'm not expert.
|6 days 43 min ago||I'll tell you what I'd pay good money for...||
A picture with you (Mr. Smith), flashing the finger guns. I don't know if copyright would be an issue but a block M on it would be nice too. Seriously, I would donate some good money to #EATING for that.
|6 days 2 hours ago||It's called football PTSD...||
Used to be called shell shocked. Unfortunately there isn't much that can cure the problem except winning and having things go your way for a while. Hopefully the coaching hire will be the start of that.

and I live in Nova Scotia, but I have 2 weeks off over the holidays. If this happens I will fly to AA and go to Ashley's for what sounds like a great celebration. Celebrate the Savior of the world's birth and the savior of UM coming home in the same holiday...sounds good to me! Make it happen Jim!!!
|1 week 3 days ago||Love your avatar||
A picture of your finger guns is my screen saver. Never get enough of that picture. I wish I had a gif of it.
|1 week 4 days ago||He doesn't have anyone to blame.||
He was a big reason for the poor performances. He was a UM player so I wish him the best but as far as essential draft entries go I don't expect this one to hurt too much. I think he has the potential to be very good if he learns how to catch a ball, but that needs to be addressed.
|1 week 5 days ago||What?||
What, in all of this we are doing here, isn't a hypothetical discussion? We're talking about what coaches are options for a vacant head coaching job...It's ALL hypothetical.
|1 week 5 days ago||I completely understand where you're coming from...||
but that thread would easily reach a million posts by the end of the day. It would unclutter the board but it would make trying to find any new information very tedious if not impossible in a thread that long. For better or worse I think you have to make a new thread any time something new comes to light. The chances of people finding that one post where something new got reported in a thread as long as the one you're advocating for is likely to be would be slim to none.
Again, I agree with your sentiment, but I think the cons out weigh the pros in this instance.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Can't edit...||
That was Harbaugh not grab whatever.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I'm sorry....||
But 2% is peanuts. Forget the figure and look at the percentage. When football brings in the revenue that it does don't you think the getting the best person for the job is worth 2% of your budget?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||All I'm going to say is....||
I don't want to have the debate again so I'm just going to say good for him. I have been following him pretty closely since going to zona and I'm excited to watch the pac 12 championship this weekend. It should be a great game and I will always cheer for RR, much like I will always wish nothing but the best for Coach Hoke. I just hope his future is elsewhere.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I think that went over your head...||
I think he means the women on "the view"show when he said "I didn't think THE women watch football. Not women in general, just those women. Plus I think it was a joke.

Anyone who isn't even a little worried hasn't been paying attention to what has taken place at UM over the past 5 years. Rarely have things taken the paths that most people would have predicted and choices that seemed clearly bad ideas by most people were made anyway.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I guess....||
I guess we know whose fault it is when our team doesn't have the proper numbers on the field.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Agree...||
I really liked the guys comment above you with the exception of the inclusion of Lewis. I agree completely that Funchess has been dogging it for sometime, but Lewis has played well most of the year and if anything that okay showed me how badly he still wants to make plays. Other than that I think the guy had some good insight.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||I'm with you guys...||
up until a few short years ago I lived and breathed UM football. Even through the RR era I used to suffer great bouts of depression each time UM lossed a game. There wasn't anything that could drag me out of the abyss i'd find myself in after a UM loss except for my team to win. As you can imagine, that meant I was stuck there for extended periods for some of those years.
I lost something when RR was let go. Not because he was let go because by the end I was feeling like it was probably for the best, but because of the way he was treated and subsequently let go. I regained some of that with the 11-2 season with a BCS win but with each pasing game since the pain diminished.
NOw, three years later I find myself simply turing off the TV following the games and just thinking "Whatever". What's another loss? They used to be such infrequent occurances that they hurt but like so many other things, the more you're exposed to something the more desensitized you become. It sucks that I'm desensitized to losing, but there you go.
I'll end by saying the silver liniing is we're hopefully about to embark on a new chapter of UM football with a great new staff, so the eternal optimist in me is looking forward with anticipation from this point on.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Yep...||
While he was calling these two timeouts I thought for a minute what was going through his mind. I figured he was thinking "If I just burn my timeouts early, no one can complain about me not using them late in the game...Can I get a Time out please ref? Hell, just make it two."
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Lol..,||
I'd say putting up with what we have for the past three years while still rooting for this team would suggest we are many things (particularly sadists) but fickle isn't one of them. In the immortal words of Inigo Montoya, "you keep using that word....I do not think it means what you think it means."

Your use of exclamation points and defence of indefensible result from BH make me wonder if you are one David Brandon, disgraced ex-AD of UM. I can't think of anyone else would do this.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Someone may have pointed this out...||
but I think the reason for panic is the past years of football have ruined us. We forget that teams failing to show progress during the season is the exception and not the norm that it has beens shown to be in the case of the football team. I have every confidence That JB will have this team humming before long. He's no BH when it comes to player development.
