Coming back to this thread late, but yes, that was my point. I was focusing more on the quote about Carr in the ESPN exerpt (he supported hiring Hoke instead of Harbaugh) and how that's been indicitive of him generally not helping the department out at all after his coaching career.
Also, people may be looking back on Carr's coaching career with rosy glasses. He was a great coach early on his time, but by the end, he was entering Mack Brown territory where people were wondering how much longer he was going to coach and how do you delicately part ways with a former great coach. To me, after the 1997 season he consistently underachived while he was at Michigan.

For as much as we shit on Dave Brandon for all the program's ails, Lloyd Carr deserves a huge share of that too. His recruiting classes at the end of his tenure were garbage, his coaching tree was inept, he nuked Rich Rod's time here which set the program back, and according to this excerpt he supported Hoke over Harbaugh back in 2011. Ass. Hole.

He's already an FSU silent commit. Not much suspense here unless we've hired some fantastic bagmen recently.

Man, kudos to the medical staff for remaining the only adults in the room during that entire ordeal. Impressive amount of professionalism on their part to stick to their guns and beliefs despite the AD shitting all over them.

He tweeted out a picture announcing his impending commitment that had a Michigan logo amongst a few others.

That's a solid looking uniform. I just don't get those backgrounds that Adidas has been using on these uniform previews. Its straight visual rape, and no matter how good the uniform looks, its really hard to get past the awfulness of these backgrounds.

Technically, they could, but I really doubt it. The Big Ten isn't strong enough as a whole to prop up an 11-1 MSU team into the playoff. In that scenario, MSU's only quality win would be over Oregon, and that's not a strong enough resume to make the committee exclude champs from two other conferences.

Not exactly breaking news, but Ohio State is going to be really good. Just an insanely deep and talented team. They may approach 2001 Miami levels.

Plus, seeing all of the other updates and news on teams across college football has me jonesing even more for info.
Its like everyday is Halloween, the neighborhood kids are getting fat on candy, and your mom keeps telling you its October 29th.
|1 week 5 days ago||Gives you a good sense||
This gives you a good sense of the level of command and respect of the people around them between Harbaugh and Hoke too. With Hoke, we still got tons of leaks and almost daily recaps from people on what was happening at practice. With Harbaugh, they've been underground for 10 days or so, and all that has leaked is some major injury news which is damn near impossible to keep under wraps.
As a fan that is craving any sort of info, its frustrating, but damn impressive. Especially in this day and age of social media.
|1 week 5 days ago||Both?||
I would like both. Although at this point I'd take a daily instagram practice recap in the form of Harbaugh giving a thumbs up, or a thumbs down.
|1 week 5 days ago||Not too surprising||
All they really did was decide they didn't have jurisdiction over the case, which when you look at the structure of the NCAA and all of the affiliate schools, isn't too surprising.
They didn't rule on whether or not student athletes are employees, they just declined to rule on anything at all.

I wouldn't be so worried about the QB depth chart as I would be about the general offensive depth chart in general. Especially the OL. Florida has a looooong way to go in their rebuilding.

We have a handful of guys that COULD BE stars but pretty much none who are stars. Like it's tough to call Peppers a star considering he's hardly played in college.

I've always wondered what would happen where someone like KK Productions made an awesome video with no rights to any of the video or music they used and someone like BTN or ESPN who did have the rights to the video just took it and posted it or played in on air.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||Dude...||
Dude, you are 100% missing the point. I never said Clark wasn't good. I never said Mattison wasn't good. I explained to the guy who didn't understand why there was no fumble REASONS WHY THERE WAS NO FUMBLE. Clearly Clark is good enough to be drafted despite his laundry list of off-field issues. And clearly Mattison is a good coach.
But as a whole? The last staff was garbage. Well established hot garbage. And not every player drafted is good at everything. Lots of guys are drafted (especially in later rounds) simply because they are raw talent. Also, do you know how many fumbles Clark forced in his 4 year career? One. One whole fumble.
So do you want to keep going? Or are you going to admit that maybe Clark wasn't the greatest at forcing fumbles, maybe the last staff as a whole wasn't great at preaching/teaching ways to force fumbles, and maybe in the GIF above there's a couple of reasons why there was no forced fumble.
Or maybe you just want to keep putting words in my mouth or nitpicking because I misspelled something. Either way, I don't care. I've made my case, backed it up with plenty of stats, and I have a flight to catch.
In the words of Les Miles, have a great day.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||You guys are all missing the point||
I was never the one that criticized the lack of the fumble. Its a beautiful hit. No one is disputing that. All I was doing is replying to the guy who was amazed there was no fumble. I pointed out Clark didn't try and strip the ball, and he didn't put his helmet on the ball. Both of which are two very good reasons there was no fumble. They don't happen magically.
I also pointed out that you could probably trace that back to the coaching staff (like you can with oh so many of Michigan's problems). And if you look at the forced fumbles stats over the last couple of years, Michigan has been one of the worst in the country at it.
2011 -- 16 forced fumbles (21st in the FBS)
2012 -- 12 FF (61st)
2013 -- 8 (102nd)
2014 -- 5 (122nd!!)
We've gotten progressively worse at it. And if you are teaching and emphasizing ways to force fumbles, you're probably not going to keep getting worse at it. And its not like the defense was lacking in opportunities.

Which also goes back to my original point.
But you know, neg away everyone. Because I've clearly hit a nerve striking at the great contribution Frank Clark and the previous coaching staff added to this program.
