Love it. When we beat them, I want to hear their excuses this time. Not only that but it bones Sparty in recruiting. Good luck going against Meyer and Hokeamania, Trolltonio.

Living in OSU country, the fans have been nothing short of obnoxious. They said "Michigan isn't going to the National Title game so they shouldn't celebrate so much." Are you kidding? 10-2, a (probable) BCS invite and beating your biggest rival is cause for celebration.
Not to mention all the "well it's about time they won" talk. Even in defeat, OSU fan's are insufferable.

After The Process, I'll wait for the press conference to happen before I buy it.

I'm gonna cry and cry and cry, then I'm gonna drink, then I'm gonna cry some more.

I try to comprehend the remaining support for Paterno but can't. Nevermind having read the Grand Jury report; what about the simple fact that JoePa passed the buck and never followed up to make sure something was done?
His legacy absolutely deserves to be ruined in this case. Kids lives were ruined because of inaction by Paterno and others. There is no other way about this.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Is anyone REALLY surprised by||
Is anyone REALLY surprised by this clusterfuck of a cover-up? When money and The Brand are involved, men will do irrational, evil things to protect it because we are animals and animals only worry about survival.
The higher-ups who are already casualties made the decision that protecting The Brand and its image was more important than doing what was right and, honestly, would it be all that surprising if this had happened somewhere else as opposed to PSU? No, because money and power and self-image corrupt.
The fact of the matter (as has been touched on several times in this thread) is that while Paterno legally did what was asked of him, he didn't follow through and his actions (or lack thereof) resulted in a serial child abuser not only being able to roam free but to continue to do what he'd been doing on PSU's campus.
I won't argue that Paterno should've gone to the police or confronted Sandusky himself or anything like that but the simple fact that he did not once follow up, even after seeing Sandusky around campus for 9 years, says more about Paterno than anything else. Which is a shame; the man did so much good and this one horrible instance wipes all of that out.
Paterno should be pushed out, should have this black mark on his career/life until the day he dies, and though it won't happen, he should be hit with criminal negligence for his lack of a follow up.

With the power that some of these universities have, I wouldn't be shocked but I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that this is just a bit crazy.

Excellent all around. I love that Mattison seems forthcoming and honest. There's always going to be a certain amount of coach-speak but these are the few pressers where I feel like I'm actually learning something.

He "momentarily" lost his composure? Several times?
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Coaching or Player Problem?||
With the way others on the defense seem to be improving as the season goes (Ryan), I am starting to wonder if maybe Morgan/Demens/Hawthorne just don't have good read/reaction skills? You would think something that is apparent to a blogger (no offense intended) would be apparent to a defensive coordinator, especially one like Mattison and that it would be covered in practice but at this point, who knows?
Either way, it's concerning and I hope Mattison can either find a way to mask that and lessen the read/react for those guys or find guys who can read/react (not likely at this point).

I want the offense to make at least one Purdue coach curl into the fetal position and weep uncontrollably.

Very thankful to Brian and John for bringing this to the site and allowing us a little more insight. (pre-ordered my copy, btw, and can't wait to get into it.)
That said, without going through every post from the three pages I have a general question that maybe can't be answered or is maybe a little naive: when it comes down to it, why isn't the most important thing winning? Rodriguez did it at WVU but it seems he really wasn't given a very good chance and that some wanted him to fail.
I understand the decision to not bring in Casteel: when money is in play, those who control it can be greedy and opt to save a few bucks in the present when spending those extra few dollars could lead to something big in the future.
But this idea of a "Michigan Man" who is more about respecting the traditions of the past than actually winning games is (to me, at least) restrictive to the possible success of the program. Who cares how the coach manages to coerce wins out of his team (legally, of course)? Why is it important to do things the way Bo or Lloyd did it? Why the hell are some people so afraid of change?
I have to admit that I never attended Michigan and that, in my relatively young life, I've only rooted for the Wolverines for a short time (since '02) so maybe I just don't get it. But it's frustrating to see the team struggle and, at times, undermine itself.

Completely agree on hating the fans more than the players at this point. Being in Ohio, it's been a whole lot quieter of late. Here's hoping the NCAA comes down hard.
