Maybe I'm missing something. Which excellent hires in basketball and hockey did Barry Alvarez make?
|1 day 6 hours ago||What's not true?||
His family claimed he didn't intentionally take drugs the first time, then they tried to play it off like he was a helpless addict.
The article from yesterday about him playing directly quoted him.
So what about my post isn't true?
|1 day 17 hours ago||Not feeling sorry for him||
His family tried to play the victim card twice, then he went around telling everyone he was going to win his appeal and play Saturday. It doesn't sound like they learned anything from the situation.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Maybe you live under a rock||
I guess that you could say Henson was right when he said something everyone already knew.
It didn't take inside information to figure out Dave Brandon was going to get fired.
|2 days 1 hour ago||BK||
Pretty sure the BK stands for Brooklyn, not Burger King.
|2 days 18 hours ago||The recruiting||
The idea that Michigan recruits better from the NTDP because it's in Ann Arbor is not true. Most of the players commit before they even join the program, and two years in Ann Arbor isn't enough to swing prospects from regions like the northeast or Minnesota to come here.
When the roster has a large group of prospects from the midwest, like 5 years ago and the current U-17 team, we get more commits. When it's built with Northeastern players like the last two years we don't.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Oh the horror||
The 2008 team didn't get shut out. They just lost to a MAC team and needed two improbable wins over Wisconsin and Minnesota to avoid going 1-11.
|4 days 45 min ago||Except||
They would have to cite a protected interest that's being taken away, which there isn't, because it's only temporary suspension.
This has been argued before and the fraternity lost.

|5 days 18 min ago||Well that would require logic||
No other poster has ever listed a viable option on this board outside of Mel Pearson.
Every other coach mentioned fits into the profile of, "This coach won a bunch of games and Michigan is a top job so he'll come here."
|5 days 4 hours ago||That's not happening||
Enough with the "This is Michigan" garbage. Norm Bazin isn't leaving his alma mater for Michigan; Rick Bennett is not leaving Union for MIchigan. I know that for a fact.
That's it and there's nothing suggesting that they would leave their programs for any team, you're just pulling their names because they win. Neither of those coaches will even interview for this job.
|5 days 16 hours ago||The difference||
The difference is that Red is still a recruiting machine. The results on the ice haven't been as expected, but we still have a Top-3 recruiting class for 2015 and 2016.
|5 days 19 hours ago||The 4||
Don Granato, Cary Eades, Mike Cavanaugh and Greg Brown.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Eh||
I'm not as optimistic. Like I've said before, I have four targets in mind that seem more realistic.
|5 days 19 hours ago||It's over||
The writing is on the wall. Everything they're doing wrong starts at the top. I think that this just proves what most aren't willing to say.
I firmly believe that with the returning roster and next year's recruiting class, this team can compete for a national championship next year. I think we know what has to change for it all to come together.
|6 days 2 hours ago||Yeah||
My brother is a high school coach/teacher. They sent a player to Vandy a few years ago who was an average student, the same year the school's valedictorian applied and didn't get in.
|6 days 17 hours ago||Not for a defensive back||
20 sacks is a lot for a defensive back. The NFL record is 30.5 from Rodney Harrison.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Eh||
I would take it with a grain of salt, because it sounds like Spence is the one saying he's going to play. His appeal is next Tuesday, so we'll see when it comes.
|1 week 19 hours ago||If you would actually read the article||
Maryland never confirmed the severity of the injury. They said he could miss the rest of the season but nothing more.
All indications from Randy Edsall have been that they hope he comes back before the end of the year, but he won't play this weekend.
|1 week 1 day ago||They would have to build a new one||
The NCAA doesn't allow rink sizes outside of the standard sheet size, unless they're grandfathered in. Illinois has a rink that's 197×115, so they would have to build a new one.
|1 week 1 day ago||Really?||
One loss and ESPN is already talking about how Michigan State isn't healthy. Give me a break.
|1 week 1 day ago||FWIW||
There's another rumor going around that Terry Pegula is trying to help Buffalo elevate a program as well.
|1 week 2 days ago||I'm not hopeful||
I don't think Pearson will be our coach. Neither will Rick Bennett, Danton Cole or Mike Babcock.
Don Granato, Cary Eades or Greg Brown are more realistic candidates.
|1 week 2 days ago||That was a DB thing||
Dave Brandon wouldn't hire a coach with no HC experience, that's why it's been theorized that he left.
|1 week 2 days ago||It means a lot||
Pearson got an extension on a contract that had a financial penalty for leaving early. Having to pay $250,000 will make the decision a little harder to make.
|1 week 2 days ago||Ok, well||
Don't take my word for it, you can read why his content isn't allowed on this blog for yourself.
|1 week 2 days ago||No||
The victim was pregnant, and there were other children who had to witness this. That's what he means.
|1 week 2 days ago||His source||
His source is just a disgruntled former player who doesn't really have any special information, which Henson spews all over the internet like it's insider gold.
|1 week 3 days ago||Don't know if I believe that||
NFL teams have been using ungodly amounts of Toradol for years to keep injured players playing, which is dangerous but not addictive or illegal.
|1 week 3 days ago||It depends||
Some states like Florida will press charges regardless of what the victim wants. I don't know what Ohio does.
|1 week 4 days ago||Funny||
The AD dropped the ball on a dozen PR nightmares before the emails. One more didn't make a difference.
Dave Brandon stepped down the minute that the boosters threatened to stop donating to the program.
