But many of those are already running at capacity

My money would be on bubble screens - doing frustrating things while winning (which Beilen has done a lot) is easier to handle than watching your offense implode repeatedly when yards are to be had for free
|50 weeks 4 days ago||The comment wasn't a slight||
The comment wasn't a slight at Warde so much as a reminder of when Harbaugh, while coaching Stanford, called out Michigan for steering athletes into General Studies degrees.

By those metrics then - Bo was a failure, right? And the NFL and NCAA are full of fellow failures because it's pretty rarified air that achieves a national title in either league.

Different eras raises some questions of metrics but if we're annointing Saban as the GOAT different eras should be compared

Because of the controversial Emergency Manager office that oversees the city and reports directly to Gov Snyder.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Exactly||
I don't buy for a second that the governor wasn't being briefed on this - it was a 2 year public crisis with denials from the beginning

Those of us that comment on a blog devoted to a sport played by our favorite team in a giant stadium that generates millions of dollars of our fandom and sits empty the rest of the year probably shouldn't be pointing fingers at how a crowd might fund a living community with commercial and private properties for self-sustainability in addition to revenues from tourism.

Is it ironic to accuse another of "cherry-picking" data while refuting conclusions based on all the data points with two data points in isolation?

"I believe his uncle made a call to the university and spoke to one of the coaches because he has an uncle who is an alumnus," said Eastmond. "Once his uncle made the call the coaches started talking to him"
So it sounds like Brown's camp reached out to Michigan initially. That's pretty cool and shows that Beilen is turning some heads around the country.

Isn't the AD a separate set of funds from the academic institution?

I'm down with the suggested stadium tribute(s) but I'd center the legends numbers and work out from the middle instead of left/right alignment

A hundred times this. As mentioned previously in the thread, actions speak louder than words and that cuts both ways. Wilcher is saying all of the public things that should be said but let's see how the recruiting battles play out the next couple of years for Cass Tech football players before we determine Wilcher has been hoodwinked or (worse) bought off, as some have accused of him.

we really need some OL recruits in this class with the confirmed transfer of Kyle Bosch and (still rumored) transfer of others potentially

Bo's offer to Harbaugh was a bit out of the blue (#rimshot) so those comments make sense to me and fit with my expectation that JH is a Michigan diehard that will love the chance to come back and right the ship (especially for the sake of his ego - recovering Michigan's lost glory puts him in the upper echelon of college legends alongside Bo and I think that's an opportunity he won't turn down).

John is Jon's doppleganger twin. He's been running a tight, little janitorial outfit in southern New Mexico waiting for his shot at the bigtime lights.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Two Additional Questions for Concern||
1) Subjective Concern: The Moeller incident - no integrity, undercut a successful team's coach; significantly worse than Harbaugh throwing M academics under the bus. Integrity is higher to me as a value than an extra two wins/year
2) Objective Concern: How do academics at Michigan and LSU compare? How much of LSU's recruiting success is Les Miles vs LSU being in a hotbed of talent where football is all there is for some of these student-athletes? I don't know where or how to find the stats for this question but it seems to be an important factor in any transition for coaching at Michigan and there seems to be a significant difference in cultures comparing LSU and M.

Seniors were told RR was getting fired at least before the bowl game

I missed the part where 2012 was a failure -we lost to Alabama (NC), ND (runner up), beat MSU, lost to Nebraska when the all-time leader for QB rush yards got hurt, lost to #4 OSU in Columbus by 5 pts, and lost to #10 USCe on a last minute TD in the bowl game.
Almost all of the struggles of 2013 can be linked to Oline issues that seem to have been worked out this year (significant improvement) and were mostly related to an inexperienced interior line.

He should have remembered this speech before he thrrew Bo and Michigan academics under the bus in 2007. Give me the guy that never publicly criticizes Michigan and works like hell behind the scenes to make it better. Give me the guy that understands that "The Team, The Team, The Team," is more than a slogan.
If he's coming back, he needs to address those comments in his interview process and his answer should carry more weight than his coaching acumen.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||Opinion vs Controlling Outcomes||
It's a bit disingenuous to treat this as "Mealer doesn't respect fans' opinions and questions their right to have one" - Mealer was upset that a fan opinion (held by many fans), which he disagrees with, carried more weight than the opinion of those in the athletic department (coaches, staff, players). That said, as a Muggle, I still think that firing DB was the right decision after the e-mails were confirmed.
Absolutely agree on the BS of "we paid for it" but don't treat us like customers hypocrisy.
