Old news but... putting Hoke on the same level as RR is ridiculous. RR has been a success at every level... except here where he was sabotaged by the hidebound old guard.

Actually the real champion of European football (soccer) is the winner of the Champions League which is an extended playoff system. Yes, the winners of each league are champions of that league... just as the winner of the Big Ten is the champion of the league. But the best teams go into the Champions League playoffs for the following year and THAT winner is the champion of European football.

The hypothetical 'Michigan Man' would have stepped down with style & grace weeks ago, If he really loved Michigan he would stop the bleeding now... hypocrit.

Mason Cole (#92 Rivals) and Barnes (#158 Rivals) were not top 250 recruits?
Also surprised that Butt (#144 Rivals) is not on that list.

Miles and Pinkell are too old (60 and 62) ... and old news... Mullen!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Absolutely agree... have been||
Absolutely agree... have been saying this in numerous posts. Get rid of Brandon >> Fire Hoke and let Nuss or Mattison be IHC >> take your best shot with Jim Harbaugh >> if he won't come than do whatever it takes to get Mullen.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Wrong side of History||
Calling Addazio's offense "run-heavy" is like calling Charlie Weis "chubby". The first time we got behind and kept running into the line he would be booed into Bolivia. We want to get on the right side of history - to look like the smart guys on the field... not the clueless... not the plodders.
It starts with things like Tempo, imaginative offense, shield punting etc.. Addazio is the antithesis of where we need to go... Hello Dan Mullen!

If we don't get Jim Harbaugh then Mullen is the guy...
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Malzahn||
Great post - thanks. I know Malzahn has no shot of coming here, but to take him off the list as a "complete overhaul" guy is the wrong reason. You really wouldn´t want to see THAT offense at Michigan? Addazio´s neolothic offense is OK, but Malzahn is too much for us... cumong.
"Complete Overhaul" sounds pretty good to me right now... and Malzahn did it in Year One with players recruited for Loeffler´s stodgy offense. I´d take him in a heartbeat... but it ain´t happening.

Do Not want THAT offense... no offense...
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Dan Mullen Redux||
Interesting that I published the following post last Sunday but it was taken down for some reason... and now Brian writes pretty much the same thing. Question to mods: Why was my post deleted when Brian has very much the same opinion.
I tried to embed this but it came out strange...

8 and 9 win seasons in Starksville are like 11 win seasons at an established B1G team.
|5 weeks 4 days ago||Grant Perry!!||
It's time to offer this kid ( #1) . He is true BLUE and would likely commit on the spot. Looking better every week. For those who are star-struck I would guess that a 4th star is in his immediate future the way he is playing. Regardless of that he would be a great addition.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||See Bronx Blue's diary||
Under "There ain't nobody better" he lays it all out in convincing fashion.
Let Hoke get us to that 9 - 10 win Carr plateau and THEN find the person to take us back to prominance.

We were sick of being behind the itmes and always playing "not to lose" a la Ferentz.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||A combination of not Taking||
A combination of not Taking Casteel and no support for RR from a large part of our fan base. Do you see what he is doing with 3 star talent down in 'zona? Grrrrr!

Kick off coverage is still weak, and we were caught completely off guard by the on side kick.
Punt coverage seemed better (though still using the old outdated style)

If he wanted Smith to get the TD why did he take him out when play resumed?
Smith >>> Green

Brian's WTKA gig has always been mornings not afternoons. About 9:00 am.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||11 boards||
Zak also got 11 rebounds which is about the same as his total last year...
Beilein Sophomore Bounce!

A I recall Lewan was a DT in high school before moving to the OL

I have never seen a cogent reason why class size should matter in recruiting ratings. The only rational way to compare recruiting classes is to throw out special teams recruits (for the reasons Ace mentioned), and rate all schools based solely on average stars. You might want it based on the median 15 recruits for large classes.
How can anyone think that a class of 25 3 stars is better than a class of 15 4 stars (assuming as we must that stars - for all their faults - are the measuring stick). The fact that a school has a lot of open scholarships does not mean that they recruit well...
|10 weeks 5 days ago||Sure red shirt||
Bunting is VERY skinny. Needs at least a year with Wellman to approach D1 TE size.
|12 weeks 5 days ago||No Offers||
Henry and Clark did not have osu offers. I don't think we have ever gotten a recruit from that school who had an offer from the bucks... maybe back in Bo's day but not since.
|15 weeks 1 day ago||Many a slip twixt Shane & Alex||
I would not be so quick to annoint Speight as Shane's successor. Malzone is a Winner, and every bit as talented as the other '15 QBs that we courted. I see him as a 3 year starter leading us to 3 excellent seasons.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Ty Isaac||
With all due respect (because I agree with most of Brian's observations) the clips of Isaac from last year show vastly more potential than anything I have seen from Derrick Green. Even with offensive line variance firmly in place, he looked better than anybody currently on the roster. Not explosive? A lot to like in the short cuts, balance and power that Ty delivered in minimum PT.
