The Big Blue Machine may have pulled their offer...
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Great hire! Team chemistry at an all-time high!||
Wow! This sure is keeping it positive big time!
|4 years 6 weeks ago||The players, the players and the players...||
I believe DB believes in the players receiving a chance to play in a bowl that was earned. Why take it away from them. Leave the distractions of finding a new coach and staff. Let the staff, secondly, enjoy a bowl game.
Previously, JH, in numerous talks, stated he was a Michigan Man but he still wants the epitome of a Super Bowl win as a coach. DB, I believe, knew this.
The search continued behind the scenes, LM, through his contacts, used Michigan to negotiate his existing contract higher. DB decided not to interview LM.
From many sources BH emerged as the candidate of choice. It was a choice DB wanted from the data and answers he amassed.
Now, it is time to head off the divisive comments and speculation and get behind BH.
The ball is in our court now. Support our team. Support our players. Most of all, support Brady and his emerging staff in recruiting.

|4 years 6 weeks ago||Read Tom's latest January 16 Update.||
Go Blue! Its turning in our favor!
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Pretty sure he has since he always visited Michigan.||
My friends in Michigan say it is the family that is a little upset over the late choice of Hoke when , according to them and other sources, Hoke should have been hired earlier.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Finally found where I should post on recruiting, jet schedules..||
Good information by all. Stefan McClure, Floyd Raven and Matt Wile are new names that I came across or was sent to me by email.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Little more on recruiting.||
Stefan McClure, Floyd Raven and Matt Wile are new names that are appearing. Don't have too much to say. Floyd is from LSU country, McClure and Wile from California.

N220DF/F2TH has just filed a flight plan. It is scheduled to depart from KMDW (Chicago Midway Intl) at 09:00PM CST heading for KYIP (Willow Run) for an estimated arrival at 10:50PM EST. Just asking, is Michigan looking for a relative of Brady's that might be interested in a DC position at Michigan?
|4 years 6 weeks ago||N929SR, University of Michigan Lear Jet||
Flew out of Charlotte, NC direct to Tampa. Landed in Tampa 43 minutes ago.
Any ideas out there? Why are we landing in Tampa and for whom?
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Michigan Jet just landed in Tampa at 8:30 PM.||
What do we have in Tampa that may be interested in Michigan?
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Isn't Hoke a four-letter word...:):)||
That is tough to get around, especially since I really like the hire!
|4 years 6 weeks ago||Tom, any new movement on DC candidates?||
Thanks in advance.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Coaches||
Not too sure about the spelling of the names but I believe they have hired the S&C Coach from SDSU to address the Football Team. Again, I believe Mr. Baris is still the Head of the entire Fitness Program at Michigan. Correct me if I am wrong.
I think the new Offensive Coordinator is in place. I do not know his name other than he followed Brady Hoke from SDSU.
I think another coach from SDSU also is coming, either in the role of a recruiting coordinator or as a TE coach.
Vance Bedford is a strong candidate for the DC position, I think. I am doing too much thinking. :):)
Does "Soup" Campbell bring up memories? His is considered a good prospect for a DB coach.
Does anyone else have any more names for possible Assistant Coach positions of OC and DC positions?
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Recruiting||
From reading other posts, just talking and re-assuring former commitments and possible recruiting targets works wonders if Brady can reach them in time. He is talking first, my understanding, with committed players that didn't waver or decommit. Another contributor mentioned that the Head Coach can't go out and recruit actively until all the legalities are finished first. I have no idea how long that would take. He can use the phone to answer questions a recruit may have. He is very good. Talks straight and comes across as honest and sincere.
I am excited about the different assistant coaching possibilities. Some of the younger folks don't remember some of the former coaching people that may be available now.
Would that be a good idea for an article if someone outlined the possible candidates and what they accomplished as far as coaching and recruiting, especially if they coached at Michigan in the past.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||On the kicker visiting Miami.||
I am not sure why he would look around. A kicker is a kicker. Am I naive enough to think he chose Michigan for what Michigan has to offer? Is the trip to Miami just that..a trip? A weekend in the sun?
Michigan needs a kicking game in the worst way. I sure hope he doesn't decommit because he didn't like Brady or expected a "flashy" candidate as his future coach.
|4 years 7 weeks ago||Time frame?||
Possibly some recruits only act in the present. Brady Hoke is a very good coach. played with the very best. Do you think anyone, today, has access to film of Brady's current teams or the great teams he played on in the past?
I would give Brady a chance to talk with Crawford and other defensive people. Let them ask the questions and,I am sure, Brady will be himself and successfully recruit them to Michigan.
Brady is the most upbeat man I have ever met. Completely honest. What you see is what you get. You won't be disappointed.
