Calculated move by Meyer. No one tells this story without knowing how it will be received. While pretending to tell an endearing story about the former coach, he is, in fact, attempting to lower Hayes reputation... thereby loweing the bar for himself to be considered the greatest coach in OSU history. Meyer is a manipulative premeditating liar. True story.

The sky is falling, fire the coaches crowd annoy the hell out of me. 2 plays go another way and that crowd call the coaches genius.

Careful shirtless.. run around throwing out the phrase run for a cure and you may just get sued by Koman.
Koman is a foundation I would never give $$ to. Notorious for giving low % of actual funds raised to, you know, the cure.
Their tag should read
Susan G Koman For the Cure! So Long as it Doesn't Cut into Executive Salaries, Lavish Travel and Marketing!

I kind of like the overall look of the whole ensamble (not shown up top).
But seriously, the branding requirements have gotten out of control. M then Addidas then Allstate Sugarbowl in that tight little area. Fugly. Two should disappear, one at the very least.

OSU prez and NCAA prez old roomates, colleagues, and still consider each other "good friends". There is no hammer coming down on OSU.
Its why they have been so arrogant, because they can. I believe as much as anything the conversations already been had, OSU knows exactly whats coming its way. It will be about 15% worse than their self imposed penalties, it will be orchastrated that way so the NCAA can claim some sort of tough action.

Like he's cost LSU?? With their top recruiting classes, supportive fan base, and national championship winning or competing teams every year??
Miles isn't perfect, and I prefer Hoke, but come on. At worst, he is average on the college football ethics scale. At worst.

Do you know if the book will be for sale at the event?
Red's website has no details other than the time. The only book signings I have ever been to were at Barnes & Nobles, so clearly the books were for sale.

I'm glad the old point system is gone. People are back to talking football around here.
In pursuit of points this place had turned into endless postings of lolcats, 'funny' animated gifs, users who couldn't put a comment together without the mgomeme, and contests to see who could be snarkiest... not to mention the my way or the highway mentality that turned everyone into a circle jerk participant (er, I mean mgocirclejerk). Think like us, talk like us, or we will negbang you! Ugh.
Even though I don't comment much, I check this site multiple times a day, many more than a 30 year old should. This is the best college football blog on the planet, and while not perfect, currently mgoblog is as good as its been in a loooong time. Yeh, I'm good with how it is.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||I've heard/read Bacon on a||
I've heard/read Bacon on a couple different media outlets now.. and the one impression I come away with... one that surprised me and I wasn't looking for... is this guy goes out of his way to be objective and non partisan. He doesn't look find a scape goat or place blame on any one person or action. The guy seems to recognize the world is shades of grey.
And lets me honest, black and white sells. Friend or enemy. His book would have sold more copies if he came out and placed the major blame on any one subject.. if he took a side... if he manufactured controversy.
IMO, he took the high road, and made an attempt to tell as accurate of a story as he could. I admire him for that.
|1 year 30 weeks ago||First, I have for years||
First, I have for years admired Lloyd Carr.
But to say he can't be something he isn't is ridiculous. I am reserved person, I don't like to be in the spot light, I would never want to be in front of the microphones for an interview.
But mess with my family, and I don't care what I am "comfortable" with or not, I am going to war.
If you're saying Carr can't be a certain type of person, its not the type of person who is comfortable out in the media. Its the type person who lacks the integrity to stick up for his family.
(and before someone wigs out on me, I am not saying Lloyd lacks integrity. I am saying if you fully believe a person is just a certain way and they can't change, then u must believe that certain type that Lloyd is lacks the integrity to stand up for family when they are attacked. He didn't, it wasn't because he isn't that type of person, it was a conscious calculated move on his part, what for I don't know)
|1 year 30 weeks ago||Duplicate post.||
|1 year 30 weeks ago||We are all, especially in||
We are all, especially in sports, judged by a standard set by those who came before us.
Bo created a standard here for how a coach should act and who a coach should be. Put Lloyd Carr somewhere that didn't have a Bo standard, and few would question is greatness or commitment to the program. Unfortunately for him, he exists at a place that has an incredibly high standard for what a coach, or Michigan Man, should be. Lloyd Carr doesn't match up to Bo, and so he will be judged accordingly.
Is if fare? Maybe not. I dunno. But its reality. Its why we say He's not Bo. Bo set a standard, showed us all how a Michigan Man (yes I dispise the phrase too) must act.
Look at Kobe. He is/was as close to perfection as you could find on a basketball court, yet he was always not-quite-Jordan. Jordan set the standard for a basketball player's ability, competitiveness, marketability, drive...Kobe was not quite Jordan. If Kobe existed in a Jordanless world, well, he would be Jordan.

I saw no personal attack in the jumping the shark post, I thought the guy did a pretty good job of voicing his opinion while remaining respectful. But the hammer came down, not sure why. The mgofanboys would have sufficiently beaten him down, why the need to go all communist China on him?
Regardless, the message has been sent. You may diagree with each other, but not Brian.
Which again, is odd, because you never could disagree with Brian here, or said fanboys would have neg bombed you to that place that rythmes with Olivia. Long ago this place turned into a single viewpoint circle jerk. I kind of thought things were getting better after Brians epic and public fail over the Hoke hiring. Those with opposing or dissenting thoughts were sporatically voicing them.
I guess the mods wants to restore the caste system that had taken over mgoblog.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Nothing at you directly Ziff,||
Nothing at you directly Ziff, I could/should have made that clear in my comment, I can 'comprehend' you were discussing the spot. I was speaking more in general. Read through the past 2 days of comments and threads, Brians own, the podcast, and the a few of the comments on your post... I just find it odd that after a loss people seem to focus on one or two plays. This week is the 4th and 1 call.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||nope||
|1 year 31 weeks ago||Happens every time.||
Happens every time. Predictable as snow in the UP. When a team loses a game, its fan base finds one bad play to obsess about. Its like a disgruntled fan base needs some common ground to apply a laser focus.
Sure, most likely there were better plays to be had. But honestly, it was one play in a game we were solidely beaten. We didn't deserve to win that game. Their players were dirty, their fans are as mature as 1st graders, their coach a prick, but they beat us in every facet of the game. Offense, defense, special teams, coaching, all of it.
Can we just drop this one play call cost us the game bs?
|1 year 31 weeks ago||
Yes can we please up the points needed to start a post, and this is coming from someone who will never see enough points at the current level to start one. I can't take the whining, bitching, and moral victory posts

its funny when we lose their are always certain types of ppl who have to make themselves feel better by finding wins in inconsequential things, like who's stadium is better. moral victories are everywhere when michigan loses the actual game.
|1 year 32 weeks ago||Or, you know, we could do it||
Or, you know, we could do it the old fashion way and BEAT MSU AND NEBRASKA OURSELVES. Yes, I was yelling. I am not worried about somebody else beating them, since we play them this year. Its our job. If we lose we don't deserve to be ahead of them i the division. Seriously.
