there would have to be some to wash away

Let's not forget the running backs. Our stable of running backs, recruiting wise, is on par with the likes of Alabama. But they just don't produce at all--and it's not all the O Line.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Wrong. It is the games.||
Yes, they are ten years away, but ND has pretty much filled it's schedule for the next 15 at this point. Not only do they rotate the ACC every year, but they've also scheduled a series with Texas and Northwestern (and I believe one other but I am unsure). Meaning, there is no room for Michigan for the next 15 years or so.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I think you're correct. BK||
I think you're correct. BK was just on ESPN and when asked about the players said "it's my understanding that the trials for those players are about to begin." I also imagine they have to try all before rendering a decision on any, since they are all connected. If so, I don't see the decisions coming out until after the weekend.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||My understanding is that the||
My understanding is that the players are only held out of practice, but are still allowed to attend team meetings and film sessions, etc. if so, I could definitely see them still playing--especially Russell.

It's not stubhub, it's ND. There are no electronic tickets for any ND home games.

To your point, if those kids got in a DUI car accident that could've killed someone, that would be a better analogy. I don't think people realize how easy it is for someone to die from a sucker punch—either from the initial blow itself, or from the head hitting the concrete immediately afterward. He may be charged with agg assault, but he could easily be charged with more. Kick him off the team and out of the school.

I play rugby, and I see football players at all levels making inefficient tackles all the time. Not to say I'm an expert, but it was drilled into us by our rugby coach to tackle this way. It's good to see some coaches are incorporating proper technique at the next level.

They're just answering the questions given to them. I agree with your sentiment, but they have to wait to prove it just as much as we do.
|6 weeks 12 hours ago||That may be true, but usually||
That may be true, but usually those weaknesses are avoided through "coach speak," so to say. I can't recall hearing such direct and candid responses about future performance. To me, this is a good sign.

I think there's three quotes in there that speak exactly to the dichotomy between Dave Brandon and the Michigan fan base.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||And I also disagree with your||
And I also disagree with your overall logic in this article. Adding up the parts does not equal the whole. You can't say "Athletes can handle the money because other undergrads who are wealthy can too."
|8 weeks 2 days ago||I still have yet to be||
I still have yet to be convinced that because the heads of an organization are paid handsomely, the baseline workers have "a right" to be so compensated as well. Please indicate one are in all of American employment where that is true. This entire nation is riddled with Billion dollar corporations who pay the employees required to make it run at or near minimum wage.

Somewhat related, it's rather sad what has become of media "writing" these days. I clicked on the link where Hoke pops up in that article, which links to another hot seat article. I could barely make it through the first two sentences without my head spinning. Here is the second "sentence," if you want to call it that:
"Is Devin Gardner, still recovering from a broken left foot suffered againstOhio State last season, the starting quarterback, and if so, in what order do Shane Morris, Wilton Speight andRussell Bellomy backfill the position in the event it opens, via injury or incompetence, sometime this fall?"

Assuming you triple posted for comedic effect.... Good on ya

I just asked my roommate, a former division 1 basketball player, about the Napier comment. I said "how many nights did you go hungry?" His response, "none. Not one. They give you a meal plan and enough money to eat, live well, and blow on all sorts of crap. And my roommates did all those things and still had enough left over to blow on weed, which they did--a lot. Tell Napier that if he wants anything extra, which he shouldn't, there's a thing called student loans. That's ridiculous.."

So in other words: he over signed. If Saban can do it, why can't he?
|34 weeks 6 hours ago||Doesn't this actually hurt them?||
I just watched an interview with the NW QB and when asked how northwestern players are "employees" he stated "we're paid to play. We're paid in the form of a scholarship."
Doesn't that statement then go against football players? You can't argue on the one hand that players deserve to get paid and are providing a free service to a billion dollar industry, and on the other hand that you should be allowed do unionize because you're a paid employee....

No offense, but that's the athlete's fault. Not the institution.

I'm so tired of Joe D. He gets way too much credit for the Piston's success in the mid-2000's. Please tell me what he's done without Larry Brown, a HOF coach who's entire career is marked by building teams up from nothing. The team has only become progressively worse since Brown's departure.

UM's leverage is that Adidas just lost over 100million in revenue from a client going to someone else. If UM does the same, that would be over 200mm lost in college athletics clients. Heads would roll...

Screw it, I support this double thread. Can't wait to see him as our new OC
|36 weeks 6 days ago||Who it should be: Mario||
Who it should be:
Mario Cristobal - OL coach at Alabama. Built up FIU's program, then got a raw deal. The program has floundered since then. Plus, he worked under Saban, so he has SEC recruiting ties (not to mention a strong presence in Florida), and is way overqualified to be an OL coach. Most importantly, OC at Michigan would be a promotion.
Make Sanford - QB/WR/Recruiting Coordinator at Stanford. Knows how to develop talent, has been key in an offense that we want, and he used to work under Chris Petersen as an OC at Boise State. Again, Michigan OC would be a promotion.
Not sure why nobody has mentioned either one of these guys.
|37 weeks 5 days ago||Jon Hoke used to coach||
Jon Hoke used to coach college ball and mulled the decision to leave the pros for college before and be a DC under Spurrier (I believe). I think he'd be willing to come back, especially given that he's one of only two people who was kept from movie Smith's staff when Tressman took over. Who knows if he meshes well, would like a change, or sees something long term as a DC at Michigan when Mattison retires. Certainly being a coordinator under his brother would give him greater job security than anywhere else (assuming Brady succeeds).
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Not sure if Kelly would take||
Not sure if Kelly would take this job or not. I think he wants to go to the pros, but I, and many others, believe he wants to go to New England when Belicik retires. He's gone out of his way to develop a relationship with Belicik these past couple years. He may be better off staying in college, winning for now, and pushing for the NE job if it opens. That way, if he loses once there, he can still come back to a top college job.

Sorry, I coped and pasted it in, and although it previewed as coming through in paragraphs, it did not. I went back and edited with additional paragraph entries but it didn't work.

But you're right, a decently written, tailored plan to address coaching staff issues is "crap". Meanwhile, the hundreds of posts screaming "Fire Borges! Go Blue!" are what drives discussion.
