The truth is probably somewhere between. I recall reading an article in Smart Football that implied they came up with the scheme together at Cincinnati, but that it was Narduzzi who told Dantonio what kind of players he needed to run it effectively. Take that with a grain of salt, as my memory may be faulty, but that would imply Narduzzi is more responsible for running the thing and Dantonio for putting the right pieces in place.

The defense, at least. The offense was better in 2014 and projects to be very good next year.

Not going to hate on the guy, if he stays in the NFL, but I will be disappointed and frustrated.

Okay, no problem--I have the book too. Just some of the stuff you included seemed to go beyond what I remember being in the book. I could clearly be wrong about that, but I don't recall, say, Carr initiating the focus on RR--just calling him to talk up the job.

Er...what are your sources for this, especially the conversations between Martin, Coleman and Miles? Seems to go way beyond Bacon's account and includes information beyond what's publicly known. Not saying you're wrong, per se, but I'm skeptical without references to where the information is coming from.

Four Roses Small Batch is nice. My favorite Bourbon, though, is Jefferson's Presidential Select. Ocean is great too. But like you, I will save the really good stuff for the day he signs. Tonight, for me, it's Evan Williams Small Batch.

Does "massblue" stand for Massachusetts Blue? If so, an educated guess would say your friend is Addazio. In that case, I'm not too worried--may be a good guy, but no one really wants him to be our coach.

So that hire makes a lot of sense for them.

I'm hard pressed to think of a less reliable source. It's getting really annoying.
|1 week 5 days ago||Transition costs moderate||
In my profile of Herman, I said the transition costs would be "moderate," because all you really need to do in order to switch from our scheme to theirs is spread the WRs out, run shotgun as default and give the QB 6-12 carries/game. Yes there are lots of subtleties missing there--consequential ones, even, like WR blocking, use of the slot position for pop passes, etc.. But it isn't as big a shift as we undertook from 2007 to 2008, or how big a shift it would be if we were hiring, say, Scott Frost.
|1 week 5 days ago||Another point on Miles||
Just want to add one more thing that I think is really important to note...
Michigan may not have the natural recruiting advantages that LSU has, but it has more natural recruiting advantages than most schools in the FBS. And the step down from LSU to Michigan in terms of who you bring in is MUCH, MUCH less significant than the step down in competition from the SEC West to the Big 10 East.
The SEC West has:
The Big Ten East, by contrast, has:

I strongly prefer one of the Harbaughs over Miles, but think Miles would give us 5-7 years of good football and leave the program (insofar as on-the-field performance is concerned) in a better, more stable place than it has been since 2006.
|1 week 5 days ago||Respectfully disagree on Miles||
He hasn't just been successful by default of location in a recruiting hotbed (Louisiana). He's been successful because he's turned highly-ranked recruiting classes into NFL-laden rosters that win a lot of games. Our current lack of success, in spite of multiple highly-ranked recruiting classes, shows that's not a fait accompli. Florida's current lack of success, in spite of multiple highly-ranked recruiting classes, shows that's not a fait accompli. Tennesse's current lack of success, in spite of multiple highly-ranked recruiting classes, shows that's not a fait accompli. Notre Dame's middling level of success, in spite of multiple highly-ranked recruiting classes, shows that's not a fait accompli. USC's middling level of success, in spite of multiple highly-ranked recruiting classes, shows that's not a fait accompli.* Etc.
Miles does what he's supposed to with the guys he recruits, and he recruits them well. If that holds, he would do a significantly better job with the kind of guys we can pull in that Hoke has.
*Yes, sanctions. But top 5 classes every year.
