Urbz isn't even the best coach in his conference (Jerry Kill).
|1 week 2 days ago||Exactly||
I thought the very same. Urbz is so bad with QB development that his third string QB led them to wins in three of their biggest games of the year. How would Bellomy have looked in those games?

Should've been 8 teams...

For the record, are we completely done with the whole Ohio thing? For now? I'm going to the game tonight, need to know what to call the opponent.

Dantonio intimidated him into backing out.

Who would want this job? Ohio State made it through the B1G undefeated and will play for NC on Monday. Despite that, I think most folks are very happy that Tom Herman is leaving for Houston. They rode his ass all season, and depending on the week, rode Luke Fickell even harder. They've only tolerated Chris Ash because he's new this year. Clearly, Urbz is a god, but anyone directly underneath him (coordinators/college coeds) will be open to great ridicule down here.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Harbaugh||
JH is a motivator, of players and coaches. He will expect a lot of coaches and hold them accountable for falling short. Regardless of who is hired, for any position, they won't coach on an island. Harbaugh was the big hire, he'll fill out his staff and Michigan will be fine. No panic needed, this time.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Shoulder||
No one knows if Braxton will ever be able to play QB again. He's had 2 surgeries on throwing shoulder. Folks down here are already saying that if Cardale 'Ain't here to play school' Jones leads them to a NC, he should be next years starter.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Pathetic||
This guy wants to be right, so badly. Seems like everyone else sees a trend towards Michigan. Gosh, I hope he's wrong.

Howard Brady Carter, if available.

But, is it happening?

Troegs Hop Back Amber. Great beer for a cold coaching search.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Decision||
The problem with press like this is that it may push Harbaugh to make a decision. He'll be asked about this every time he's in front of a microphone. The NFL guys want to protect their brand and probably leaked this to force JH to decide now. Since there are more NFL options, he may lean that way. Bunch of damn babies.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Contingency||
Everyone running a business knows that the best hiring approach is to offer one candidate, then wait as long as they want to take for a decision. Then, when they decline, make a panic hire of a terrible candidate and close your business 6 months later when they steal all your widgets. Sixty percent of the time, it works every time. That said, I'd be fine with Les Miles.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||OK||
NFL body, high school hands. Good luck in the league!
|7 weeks 5 days ago||ESPN||
If I were to bet, I'd say Harbaugh goes elsewhere. That said, you have to take any ESPN report with a grain of salt. They dedicate an entire morning program to the NFL and broadcast NFL games. Over the past 2-3 days, there has been an apparently organized effort to talk about Harbaugh staying in the NFL. He may very well do that, and it certainly would be in the interest of ESPN that he do that. Nothing has happened until it happens.

I think "ihatemichigan" was asked to leave.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Simpathy||
We took our two young kids to the game yesterday as well. Overall, a pretty decent experience. The buckeyes at our tailgate were very cordial, although I got to answer the coaching question about 10 times. We sat in two different locations, first half in C deck and second half in A deck. The fans in A deck were much more professional, still passionate. The fans in C deck were a bit saltier, very frustrated with the first half (and showing it). We got all the typical jokes about raising Michigan fans, etc, etc. I get that every day down here. One guy made a punching motion towards my son and booed him, which was pretty inappropriate considering his young age. I think the worst behavior came at the half with the Michigan Marching Band on the field. The fans did everything they could (chants, booing, songs) to drown out the bands patriotic themed show. Both my kids noticed this and asked a lot of questions after the game. I think it's much safer and friendlier to visit the Shoe with Michigan down. When we start reeling off wins again, the atmosphere will likely change.
Oh, and I completely agree with the OP's assessment of the stadium. They're very proud of what they have, but it doesn't hold a candle to Michigan Stadium. We've sat in every level of the stadium at various locations for several different opponents. A deck is fine, B deck can be obstructed, C deck is really high. There's an area in the closed end, at the top, where you can only see one half of the field. Constant piped in music, sponsored activities, and advertisements plastering every available square inch. And, they number the sections with Odds on one side and Evens on the opposite. How does that make sense?

We'll be down there, are taking our kids to the game for the first time. We've been to the game at the Shoe several times, have rarely run into more than verbal assaults from guys with mullets (driving Iroc Z's). We have lots of buckeye friends that we tailgate with, who defend us against feeling bad. Should be fun, Go Blue!

I'm surprised Thee Ohio didn't push for at least a 3:30 start. After a big splash v. Sparty, they'll finish with three games with unimpressive opponents at noon. West coast viewers will still be in their PJ's. Good luck improving on playoff status in virtual anonymity.

Dantonio's sooooo sensitive - Michigan is too arrogant, too disrespectful, called us "little brother", planted a tent stake in our field. He spends so much god damn time exploring his feelings about Michigan. I can't wait to see this guy fall flat on his face and start losing again. He's only one season removed from a 7-6 campaign. State was patient with him because fan expectations are historically so low. That touchdown at the end of game meant nothing, will just give the next Michigan staff something to talk about in Ann Arbor next fall. God, he's just such a baby.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Business||
I'm not blaming these kids for making a decision now to leave, but it's still a decision they should be held to. Business decisions go well and they go poorly. Theoretically, hypothetically, what if, etc. they were to hire Jim Harbaugh, who has a track record of winning and would likely bring this program back quickly. It may cause kids who had the dream of attending Michigan, at some point, to reconsider. I would hope any new staff would tell them to keep looking elsewhere.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Door closed||
So, if Michigan does make a home run hire, should the new coach accept re-"commitments" from these kids? Also, we should all stop calling them "commits". They aren't committing to anything.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||Interim||
Just a thought, probably thought before below, but why not fire Hoke now and name Nuss interim coach? What is there to lose? Nuss gets a short tryout and the spotlight on the program dulls a bit. If he goes 4-0, he's considered as a candidate. If he goes 0-4, was he really ours to begin with?

Kelly may have been Michigan's Tressel. Now in year 7. Big missed opportunity.
