Just a wild guess, but maybe he thought Borgess was not doing a very good job, and that he could substatially upgrade the position. And maybe he thinks Funk is doing a good job and/or he cannot substantial upgrade the position.

Your first premise is to disregard "Knowing what you know now."
I probably would have been wooed to the golden coast. One trip to USC and I never would have looked back.

Indeed. Hope is that which the game is built upon.
How many of these kids hope and dream of careers that have odds similar to the lotto?
Some would even say their hopes are exploited.

Just look at Kovacs.
Continually and relentlessly endeavoring to improve, by any and all means necessary and possible, is the elixor of success.
It sounds like he will appreciate the opportunity. The rest is at least partially up to him.
The Super Bowl player intros will once again include a few guys who were unheralded out of high school, did not attend elite programs, but who are starting on the biggest stage in the game.
The fight in the dog...
|29 weeks 6 days ago||Family||
Does Gibbons have a sister? Maybe it was a family matter. Why do you assume it was not family related, or assume anything at all?
Mayber it was Colonol Mustard in the kitchen with a salami. Maybe it was trumped up nonsense. Maybe no crime was committed, charged or warrant issued.
Maybe something criminal did occur, either a sexual assault, or a false accusation and attempt at bribery, or some combination. No one outside the inner circle will probably ever know.
What more do you really want from a coach and an AD? Alleged criminal activity is the realm of law enforcement. Why don't you spend some time finding out what they know, and why no arrest was ever made? Freedom of Information act, and all that......too late.....Rosenberg is probably already all over it.....
|30 weeks 9 hours ago||If I were him I'd be thinking:||
1. The MSU DC will be gone after next year. What will that mean? Did MSU just peak?
2. FSU is a long way away, both in terms of distance, and culture. It would mean changing everything in my world, and leaving everything I have behind. But, it may be worth it, as they are in a perfect position to go on a multi year run for titles. They did not just peak.
3. If I'm going to go to osu, I may as well go to FSU. I only give up a little more, but I potentially play in multiple NC games, and probably win a ring in the next 5 years at FSU. LJ is a big consideration, but will he really make me that much better than my other choices?
4. If I go to Michigan, I will end up with the best degree and alumni network of the four, by far. I will still have the close support of family and friends, and I'm comfortable with the culture. There is no down sign in my development for potential play at the next level, and I may very well be part of something very special, including a run at a NC. But, the risk is that Hoke won't make that success happen, and I could be on average teams for 5 years.
Good luck M! All I can say is that it's great to be a Michigan Wolverine! Of course there's much more to it than this, but: Everywhere I go, when someone asks me where I attended college, Michigan gets respect that the other three do not. The world is about opening doors, so that you can enter, and make good things happen. I envy yor 4 door choice. Good luck whatever you decide, and make it happen!
|30 weeks 4 days ago||I did not see the interview.||
I did not see the interview. I assume he was doing his job. He's one of the greatest coaches in our era, and perhaps in the history of the game. I suggest you give him a little leeway status post a huge loss at home. If you don't respect him, I don't know how you respect the game, and savor the win to it's fullest. Go Blue! Well done!

Can one of you obsessed (compliment) Michigan football fans enlighten a less obsessed fan where the team now stands with regard to spots available for the 2014 class? Perhaps a new thread is in order?

Sounds like the kid did not like USC when Kiffin was there, does not like AL now that Kiffin is there, and liked his recent visit to USC. Not much else to see here, it seems.....

If not, I'll take osu and the points. It could get very ugly fast, but at least it is only going to last 60 minutes.

I expected no more from this team than what they have delivered. Hoped? Yes, I hoped for much more, just as I have always hoped for more from all Michigan's teams, including the 1997 team. I had hoped they would dominate WSU and win an undisputed championship.
This team is young. The staff is "young" in it's execution of it's long range plans.
My only question to the author is: how much more did you expect?
Ask me in 3 years if I'm disappointed, upset, or disillusioned.
One thing I would never do is climb up my friends back, and defacte down the back of his shirt, like it seems the author did in constructiing his "story."
|42 weeks 3 days ago||Old as the hills||
This stuff reminds me of the struggles of the PGA tour, with regard to viewers calling in rules violations.
Twisting, pinching, biting, spitting, etc....part of the game since it's inception. Young men get frustrated and act out. It's only an issue now because of the multitude of camera feeds, and the 24 X 7 media machine that requires regular feedings.

|42 weeks 4 days ago||Synopsis||
We got beaten up.
|42 weeks 4 days ago||No||
No, we did not. What's the average player age on this team? What's DG's number of total games played at QB? How long has it been since Michigan had NO ONE in the secondary?
What we just watched is pretty much what we should have expected, if we were objective realists. My only surprise is that the sread was so off.
We will look back at this game, the osu, and this year as another series of labor pains.
What will be delivered is going to make everyone proud. Personally, I would only be concerned if the current staff were below average recruiters........

The obvious: We won't be able to run the ball. Their coverage will lapse, but their pass rush won't. DG makes good decsions moving in the pocket, uses his feet when necessary, and the D is good enough to keep a horrible offence from scoring many points.

I bet if you looked up msu's record as a favorite, and Michigan's record as an underdog, you would be very pleased with the numbers!

I'm not a lawyer either. My understanding is that states can write whatever they can get passed into their constituion. But if they write something that cannot be upheld on the federal level, then it will obviously fail when it is challenged accordingly. Take, for example, the recent marijuana laws in some states.
Can Michigan bail out Detroit? Of course it can, if it is willing to divert it's tax revenues. Do the majority of the voters in Michigan wish to do so? Is it political suicide to propose to do so?
I'm betting on the 10 cents on the dollar scenario. And they may be lucky to get that much. Detroit is only the first of many, public and private. Sometimes, it's good to be first. Especially when the line will grow long.
The PBGC does not have nearly enough money to pay 10 cents on the dollar for everything that is currrently underfunded in the private sector. And the public sector? IL? CA? And that's with the market at an all time high. What happens if it crashes:
The governments next move will be to roll everyone's 401 into the new "Social Security" program.
It's the only trough left big enough to feed the hogs.

Local pubs will only have the other football on, as well as hurling.
I would call ahead to the American hotels like the Four Seasons, etc. You can call toll free and get put through to the bars, and ask the lads/lasses on site.
I would also check to see if the US ambassador is a UM alum. Maybe you can invite yourself over!
I watched the UM/ND game in Paris a couple of years ago via slingbox and Wi-Fi. It was adequate, but I would not count on a robust bandwidth connection over there.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Thanks!||
Thank you so much for your reply. I have previously tried doing a search through the UM Library/Photo archive service, and failed to locate it. I want to get one for my UM house mate who recently treated me to a seat at the B-ball final in Atlanta. Thanks, again!
