"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.

I knew, or rather surmised, that BiSB would win by a landslide even before I voted for him, so the results didn't surprise me at all. He offers a highly balanced offense that can score and the best defense of the group. I kind of wish he had some depth behind Gardner in case the worst happens, but I really like his team from top to bottom, and he's not inflexibly attached to either manball or the spread.
Well done, BiSB.

I found it hilarious not because Penn State selected a woman, but because Penn State selected Sandy Barbour.
Sandy Barbour is a terrible athletic director and has made every place she has been worse. She makes disastrous hires and then bolts before they crater. Practically every decision she makes is politically motivated (and I don't mean "office politics"). She practically destroyed Tulane's athletic department single-handedly and tried her best to unravel Berkeley. So, naturally, I'm thrilled that she's now the AD of Penn State, a place I hate with the fury of a thousand suns.

Meyer's a scumbag. How can anyone be surprised that he talks shit about Michigan to recruits?
I'm personally more surprised that a coach who won 24 straight games in his first two seasons feels the need to bash a program that is clearly struggling, instead of, you know, brag about being 24-0 for that time and 2-0 against Michigan. If Michigan and OSU were both undefeated and everything, then yeah, I could see the reasoning behind trying to get a few inches ahead. But this? You're 2-0 against Michigan, man. Get some ethics.

I mean, seriously, how can anyone think that Hoke blames the players when he fired his offensive coordinator?!

|6 weeks 1 day ago||My opinion on Brandon is mixed.||
First, I don't think he should be replaced. I think the good he has done far outweighs the things we're complaining about.
That being said, there are some things he could do better. Sending the band to neutral site games shouldn't even be a debate, for one. He could also maybe take some time off the "Brandon's Blog" thing and maybe be a little more hands-off the football program.
I don't think the Hoke hire counts against him. He followed it up with shelling out the cash for whoever Hoke wanted on staff. Not every AD does that. (Martin didn't do it for RR.)
I also emailed Brandon back in 2011 about the helmets being changed and uniforms going all yellow and how I was worried about this, and he actually took the time to write me back and assure me that, on game day, the football team will remain consistent with Michigan tradition and history. Okay, so some of it was a little condescending (we know better than you type stuff), but I was impressed that I even got a response. Most ADs don't give emailers (even if they're alumni) the time of day.
Do I think Brandon has some things he could improve on as AD? Yes. Do I think we should maybe back off him a little bit and appreciate the good things? Sure. He's not the monster or incompetent moron that some people make him out to be. While some of the people here might think that they could do a better job on certain things, I personally don't think any of us could do a better job overall.
Just my two cents.

If Michigan went 1-11 with the 1 being against ND, I'm pretty sure heads would be chopped off. And I don't mean the heads above people's shoulders.

Why are you so sure Borges said anything? He never struck me as the type of guy who "bad-mouths" even after he was let go. This wasn't the first time he was fired. He didn't bad-mouth Tuberville or Dinardo after the fact, so why would he do so here?
I know everyone hates Borges because of 2013 (the bad parts, anyway), but for Christ's sake give the man some credit as a human being.

As much as I hate Dantonio (loathe / utterly despise, actually)...
Pretty sure this isn't true. I used to look at it that way too. But I'm 99.9% sure that after three years of recruiting at a high level under Hoke we can't blame it on RR or that MSU picked up recruiting when we were down. Dantonio is just frustratingly good at developing players.
Doesn't make beating him and MSU any less important. The staff has to step up. But, peronsally, I'm done sleeping on MSU. I think the game last year convinced me beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Three years. THREE YEARS! FOR FUCKS SAKE, Hoke's been in charge of this program for THREE YEARS and we're still blaming RR and saying Dantonio caught us with our pants down? No. He's built something real in East Lansing. It pains me to admit it, but we're going to have to fight them tooth and nail as long as he's there. The days when MSU shits the bed (especially against us) are over. At least for a while.
Fuck I hate this post, this whole thread. Thanks for making me write this depressing shitpiece of a comment.

I don't even know why this is a question. If we lose to Notre Dame, I'm slightly bummed. If we lose to MSU, I'm pissed. If we lose to MSU and OSU in the same year, I'm crawling on the ceiling spewing exorcism related things.
So we beat ND. Big fucking deal. It impacts us zero percent in the Big Ten and doesn't matter a lick in the MNC if we lose to MSU and OSU. Those are the two we have to beat. And if we go 2-1 with the loss being to ND, you know what? Fuck it, I'm going to be fucking happy.
