“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”

If he could follow the program from the inside a few years ago for a book he was writing. Rich Rod gave Bacon complete access not knowing his own downfall was approaching. When Rich Rod started his downward spiral, Bacon turned his sights on information about the Rich Rod era and it's affect on the program. Bacon had exclusive insight to what was going on and hasn't step away from trying to stay close. Brandon won't allow Bacon to get close any longer however Bacon still has a ton of contacts. So he still gets inside information.

The farther you fall into obscurity when things go bad. And on the way down be prepared to have those you have passed going up, to give you their shot. It's not pretty and it's going to get worse before it gets better.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||This program is in real trouble!||
Hoke won't stay in touch with the players and this is the 2nd year this team is divided for many reasons. Hoke let Morris stay in way too long and Hoke should have known Morris was hurting. Hoke doesn't wear a headset on the sidelines so it appears he can't get pertinent info about his team or players when necessary. Out of touch on the field, out of touch in the locker room, just out of touch.

he Spence for that ecstasy? Is it covered in his exSpence account? That gets exSpence-ive.

This program has no killer instinct.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I'm sick and tired of all the little names and sayings!||
This is Michigan For god Sakes, Little Brother, Ohio, Michigan Man and any other damn little ridiculous name or phrase anyone can come up with. I want this football team to win some big games. Winning games against cupcakes doesn't do it for me. I'm sick and tired of this fan base and coaching staff acting the part of a great football team when all we are is an also ran. Until we win big games, beat MSU and OSU, I don't want to hear any more smack crap from players, coaches, former players and fans. It's ridiculous to talk smack when it can't be backed up. I don't have any answers because I'm not close enough to the program to see the real problem. But we need to eat some humble pie until we deserve to talk smack. Right now we are a very poor program. Everyone needs to shut up for awhile. I love Michigan. I'm tired is getting beat up. This school means everything to me and I'm not happy with the way things have gone the past 6 or 7 years. You just wonder if it will ever turn around. Now let us pray!
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I think there is a belief that our Football Coach||
Has to come from BO's coaching tree (Rich Rod excluded) because of that expectation of integrity and values. When Hoke was hired it was because he came with those values and the coaching tree (even though he coached under Carr). Maybe hiring Hoke was timing and also because there were no other quality coaches left to consider. But there are lots of coaches out there that have values. Not all coaches are like Meyer, Pertrino, and a few others. I'm just saying that we don't have to consider just those coaches that have understudied as position coaches at Michigan. Get the best coach out there. I suppose this could be debated all day. I'm frustrated like many others and I'm looking for solutions.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||I'm not asking Hoke be fired!||
But if and when it happens we need to go out and get the best football coach on the planet. To hell with this Michigan Man ideology. Bo was not a Michigan Man. He created the idea. Hoke is truly on the hot seat after an embarrassing loss at ND. He can recruit and gets talent but those players don't get coached up very well. I don't know the answer but I look up the road and see a very good football program being developed in East Lansing with half the so called talent (I'm basing that on star ratings). Development of players comes from coaching. Michigan has big time coordinators but I'm not sure the rest of the staff is doing their job. Players have very little contact with coordinators and the head coach till game day. So if our position coaches are not doing their job, that falls on the Head Coach. The fan base was told that this team was going to be aggressive on defense. It wasn't against a quality opponent. The offense looked horrible and not very diverse. ND ran slant routes. Michigan ran one or two. Michigan didn't throw to tight end and threw no screens. It was very vanilla and if it stays that way it will be a very long year. If we can only beat up on the cupcakes then heads have to roll.

Only applies to criminal trials. It has been taken out of context regarding many other accusations. ND could have played the supposed cheaters before a hearing and if found guilty of cheating the school would have to forfeit the win. They couldn't take that chance. Therefore the suspension until investigation.

We received our set of four tickets today. One of our tickets had an * next to the seat number. All other tickets were without the notation. I couldn't find anything on the tickets or in the book that explained it. Anyone know why.

Is OK but nothing compared to what a college coaching staff is capable of. The strength program, the discipline while playing, the complexity of offenses and the depth of the competition can take a kid with good skills and turn them into much better players. My son was a good player in high school but when he got to college he had to work extremely hard to keep up. His game moved forward more than I ever thought it would. That comes from great coaching and you get that from coaches who have dedicated themselves to the game and can coach at the college level. JB has an uncanny ability to recognize that hidden talent in kids and bring them into the fold. You will notice that most of all the recent recruits have bought into the program philosophy. That's knowing what your getting before the kids commits.

Did not embrace the younger guys last year. Lots of yelling and screaming and not a lot of guidance. That in itself would polarize a team and Hoke got the message and did not allow the seniors on this team to feel elite. No training with the Seal Teams, etc. This is a step in the right direction. Teams can't survive unless leaders lead by example. Leaders don't yell and scream at other players unless they are holding themselves accountable also. Once you are on a team you find out real quick who the good leaders are and who the wannabe leaders are. No matter. Teams can't survive a divided atmosphere.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||My son plays College Basketball||
I went to a few seminars that focused on recruiting. The best thing to do is send full game films to coaches. Do not send highlight film. The coaches want to see full games. They want to see how the kid sets screens, runs the floor without the ball, plays defense and attitude with teammates. The other way is to camp. My son went to Michigan's Elite Camp and it helped. Play AAU and send cover letters with game film so coaches know how to contact you. Good luck.

losing a 5'9" corner is not a big deal. We have had enough of those small corners to learn the bigger the better. Wish him well.

|21 weeks 6 days ago||My son played in the camp every year||
from age 6 to age 17. He was able to learn a great deal from all the coaches and Michigan players he interacted with. He was a commuter and never stayed in the dorms. Getting to know the Michigan players and others coaches was a great experience for him. At his last camp the Michigan team scrimmaged in front of all the campers and they only had 9 players. They knew my son very well and the fact that he was 6-6, they asked him to scrimmage with the team. Eight points, 5 rebounds and a charge by Horford later was the thrill of a lifetime. He is now playing in college and learned a great deal about conditioning and diet from the players. He also learned what a tremendous commitment it takes to play at each level (High School and College).

when I watched him in the State title game last fall. He has a great release and makes reads better than most I've seen at that age. He is smart and cool in the pocket. He is only going to get better so I'm excited to have him.

|23 weeks 5 days ago||I agree with you.||
Any blog like this allows some people to say things they would not say to someone's face. That makes them an idiot. It gives some the false courage to rant using the foulest of language and total disregard for victims feelings and even finding guilt without facts is more than I can take at times and I'm a retired State Trooper who has seen and heard it all in over 25 years on the force. I pick and choose my arguments on here. So don't feel alone. As an older gentleman I say you are welcome. Hope to see some of your posts.
