Nope. This recruiting stuff is wayyyy creepier.

Didn't want to create my own thread but i've heard rumblings about a Kiel commitment this week. Anyone have anymore info?

To those who say rallying point for his burial place, "bring the body back, show it and then bury it at sea". Super hard. I know. What should we expect from a guy with Hussein for a middle name.
|3 years 10 weeks ago||Election in the not too||
Election in the not too distant future, check. People starting to not believe in you anymore, check. I've got it. Say we killed Bin Laden and say we buried him at sea so no real proof exists. We can easily make some fake pictures and nobody will question us bc we're the government. Stupid drones.

Sheldon Day is another possibility. His whole family was decked out in Michigan apparel for the spring game.

Your inability to be mature when replying to snark is puerile. You've been a member long enough to know how the board will respond to topics such as this. With every insult your point loses more validity.

Moving away from Michigan was tough but not hearing about Valenti (until now) has been worth it.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||This site has been flooded||
This site has been flooded with morons as of late. I'm not sure how you could misspell Backus after it was cited on the post you replied to and furthermore Jeff was the best LT in the NFC North in a unanimous vote by all of the head coaches. The MGoBoard has obviously become an uninformed place where stupidity reigns.

Just like the hiring of Rich, huh?
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Rich is gone and no matter||
Rich is gone and no matter how much you complain he will go down in the record books as a complete failure, someone who divided the fan base, was coach when Michigan committed serious violations which has never happened in school history, the worst coach in the history of the school, and blamed everyone besides himself when the team didn't perform well. Hoke is the present and the future so get used to it.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Why do you find it necessary||
Why do you find it necessary to post that you're pro Rich? It seems like a ridiculous tactic to make sure others don't lash out at you.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Tate's grades are not Rich's||
Tate's grades are not Rich's fault. It has to do with the constant instability of the team/program. I mentioned it below. I believe it was a three week string of transfers that he had to deal with earlier in the season and now a player who was responsible for helping this team make a bowl game is unable to play and his future with the team is undetermined? The vultures are most definitely circling.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Unfortunately the media||
Unfortunately the media controls the flow of information for the most part and this program is seen in a very bad light because of that. The disastrous record, constant transfers, going through three defensive coordinators in 4 years (which is what will happen if Rich is retained), and all of the personal tribulations that have plagued Rich seem enough to get rid of him.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||This seems like the last nail||
This seems like the last nail in the coffin for Rodriguez. There has been too much uncertainty and things have been too unstable for far too long.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||If the Niners love Harbaugh||
If the Niners love Harbaugh how can you know that it is a certainty that he is not coming to Michigan? Discounting sources in the know who are around people with information on the matter are much more reliable than a poster on a message board so why make the contradictory remarks?
|3 years 27 weeks ago||It's one last mighty surge||
It's one last mighty surge from one and all because in a matter of days this whole arduous situation will come to a close.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||I am in agreeance to an||
I am in agreeance to an extent but it would be difficult to traverse a thread with 3,000+ replies and read new stances on the matter. However, I will +1 you (which I refrain from along with -1) because of the admirable posts you made the other night on the Michigan Memories thread.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Dantonio's actions are much||
Dantonio's actions are much more severe than Tressels because one team had players commit violent crimes followed by one of the perpetrators getting behind the wheel impaired while all the osu players did was sell a couple of the awards they had won. Dantonio will always be in a league of his own.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||I believe that the players||
I believe that the players did hurt the team and also the University. Suspensions for what should be 38% of the 2011 season from starters will most definitely hurt the team. However, I don't agree with the rule but it is a rule and has to be followed. A statement that was made above is a certain possibility and would negate this quid pro quo between Tressel and the aforementioned players. That can be broken quite easily and this would set a precedent for juniors to were they could break NCAA rules if they had decided to go pro and forgo their senior season.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Actually they are one in the||
Actually they are one in the same. As far as game preparation, execution/performance, and the ability to coach the players up I would say that every game has the same defining principles (possibly different then the ones I have mentioned). No one game can be evaluated differently when considering those factors just because of importance. The football season is not the only evaluating principle in the decision so that is something to consider as well.
You can put bgsu on a higher tier than umass but we saw how that turned out. The ability to use some sort of a check list to determine success (whatever Brandon's idea of that is) is the only way to go through the season while evaluating the team and coaching staff.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||You aren't understanding so||
You aren't understanding so I'll explain (not meant as a dig). As a Michigan fan I don't like OSU. Hate is too strong for anything in life so there is no hate from me. I have always admired Tressel because he seemed to care about his players on a level outside of football. To expand on that an example, although not him, is how I saw Tressel.
For the OSU game Rich held Hagerup out of the game and he wasn't even allowed to travel with the team. This shows that Rich has extremely high integrity and cares for his players outside of football. Teaching Hagerup that football is secondary to following the rules is a tremendous effort to show that he cares about his players more than football players and wants them to become moral men. This is how I viewed Tressel.
To have the NCAA suspend five players for the first five games for breaking the rules it is easy to see that this is a serious infraction. If Jim had any integrity whatsoever he would suspend those players for the Sugar Bowl as well. Although it is not on the level of Dantonio it is still an action which shows that football is more important than development from boys to men in the eyes of Jim.

I'm not one to insult anyone's intelligence so thank you for doing it for me.

1/13 of a season is a small sample to make much difference in determining overall success.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||A coaching change to Harbaugh||
A coaching change to Harbaugh would be beneficial for the defense because of the DC under Jim. If the defensive players have any sense they would realize that Greg isn't coming back and they'll have a new DC next year regardless of a head coaching change.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Saturday is not a determining||
Saturday is not the determining factor as far as Rich's job status is concerned. Most everyone on here seems to think that this game is that determining factor but Dave Brandon has stated ad nauseum that he will evaluate the whole season once play has halted. It is easy to see a scenario where Michigan puts a hurting on Mississippi State but Rich is still subsequently fired because again it's the whole season in review. People who have discussed and talked about this to no end should have realized this long ago. I guess that's giving the readers and posters of this blog too much credit.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||I always had respect for||
I always had respect for Tressel because he had shown what look liked intregrity while he has coached in Columbus. It's apparent that I was unequivocally wrong and osu is the cesspool everyone has said it is.

Thanks for the recap of everything that had already been discussed on MGoBoard.

Are you the Bill that called into The Michigan Insider the other day complaining about the station referencing the FreeP?
