If Meyer goes 13-1 next year and his only loss is to Michigan then he may very well be on the hot seat in Columbus.
On another note, how is Harbaugh ranked ahead of David Shaw, exactly? And, uh, Rich Rodriguez? Not that either of those coaches deserve the hot seat but really?

Well yeah but it's not like we overpaid...

I know that any reasonably informed person knows how full of shit Valenti is but unfortunately there are many, many uninformed people who think he's credible.

Yesterday. Something about how he thought the terrible PR would stop once Brandon was gone but that Harbaugh was doing things that looked silly/crazy and he cited examples as evidence like Exposure U and the QB camp. Then he called the hiring of Jay a "joke" or something and said "someone needs to take his crayons away because he's an embarassment on Twitter."

Unfortunately a lot of people do, and take him seriously too. Including some on this blog which is why I feel the need to point out the lunacy.

I can't wait to hear Mike Valenti's spin on it. He has already declared that Harbaugh's PR is almost as bad as Brandon's.
|2 days 15 hours ago||Well... replacing Mark Smith||
Well... replacing Mark Smith with DJ Durkin, and Roy Manning replaced by Greg Jackson are major tangible upgrades in position coaches. That alone will be a major boost for the defense, especially considering the only weakness we had last year was really at corner. And as much as I love Jake Ryan he was a fish out of water last year. The only true downgrade in terms of personnel is (probably) whoever replaces Frank Clark. But having a healthy non freshman Peppers as well as 9-10 upper class starters is likely to mitigate that loss.

Yes the number of balls is weighted and that's my point, the whole purpose of the lottery is mitigated.

That's the idea, and yet it clearly does nothing to deter teams from doing it.

I have had "With a Little Help from my Friends" on repeat in my head for almost two years.

He committed practically DURING the Brandon resignation press conference.

Heh. Maybe with Brandon's expert handling of the situation and everybody figuring he was gone anyway it just FELT like we didn't have a coach.
|3 days 2 hours ago||Correct me if I'm wrong but I||
Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought he actually committed shortly AFTER Rodriguez got fired. That always made me respect him- he was the only player I had ever heard of who committed to a school that didn't have a coach.

2 in my immediate family, but it was the EMU side of the family that got me into Michigan football ironically.

I never became one. I just always was.

If the football ream were winning nobody would be complaining about the AD. Isn't that how it works?

IF he comes to Michigan that is a huge a help. We have some major holes in the secondary come 2017, especially if Peppers goes pro after 2016.

I'm guessing the fact that he went and sent a text to Sam Webb about it means there's a pretty good chance.

Used to be solid. Lately it is hardly discernable from RCMB.

That's just it. It's not any Better. Every year there are articles about how great MSU is in recruiting and how they're turning a corner and yet every year they end up with an average Big Ten class.
