- 1-6 versus Tressel
I'm not mentioning all the rumored and written about stuff that happened during the RichRod years, including the lack of reigning in his former players when they were helping to fracture the football community. I believe it was RVB that mentioned that those guys weren't even around during the RR years.
When you have 500 bowl games and the MAC on your schedule every year, getting 8 wins and to a bowl game with our talent is not asking too much.

looked like the dad on The Wonder Years.
|15 hours 54 min ago||Is this sarcasm?||
I mean this seriously just because you talked about his love for Michigan, then ended with the bought and paid for head coaching title. That's HC title symbolizes some of the gimmicky stuff that wore thin over the years.

But UM can afford it. I mean, we could go private if we wanted to. I will give him credit for scheduling some heavy hitters in football so my girls in 2nd grade and kindergarden can watch Texas as Freshmen. Other than that? It's been a give year 4 year clusterfuck.
|17 hours 6 min ago||I'm just waiting for someone to back his story||
Something that big would have to be seen by more than one person.
|17 hours 37 min ago||He had a sideline pass allegedly||
Thing is, most of those guys with the passes are on the outside of the 20s so they're typically not near the coaches. The coaches have to stay within the 20s, so I have a hard time believing he could hear and see all that he says he heard/saw.
|17 hours 41 min ago||Apparently it's the Downriver women||
I guess they have a thing for him or vice versa. If there's one consistent theme with those idiots it's his affinity for the ladies (Though he's married).
|17 hours 43 min ago||Yes||
But I don't want to be called a racist.
|17 hours 49 min ago||They played the quote on 97.1||
Valenti and Foster played the quote and started their schtick so I didn't know the "who's and what's." Now that I know, seems to fit the narrative that's being painted of a coach that is just in over his head.
|17 hours 53 min ago||Yet another reason...||
...why I don't want Lloyd Carr filling in on a temporary basis. Keep him and his former players at a distance.
I don't know if LC's guys are younger, and therefore more immature in these situations, but the toxicity that arrived in 2008 and is still here in bits and pieces are from those guys. From the #1 jersey garbage, negatively recruiting UM, and this piece, I am just annoyed by these guys.
Maybe there's a reason that we haven't won a B1G since 2004 and beat Tressel one time.
Maybe they felt a sense of entitlement because of the helmet they wore and the stupid title of "Michigan Men" that they didn't need to work as hard.
Maybe that's why the 2000 defense that Todd Howard started for did not have the stamina to hold three 10+ point second half leads and prevented us from playing for a MNC.
I don't think those reasons have anything to do with the "FANS" that continued to break attendance records to see those "MICHIGAN MEN"

We could've gone 14-0 and people would have been ready to get rid of DB. BH on the other hand has not helped himself when it comes to his relationship with the media. The students and alumni did not force the words he's used since Saturday night. He's responsible for his own mouth.
|20 hours 16 min ago||Leave it to a Detroit columnist to state the obvious||
It's almost guaranteed that if Hoke is still here on Saturday, we'll lose by double digits unless Rutgers rolls the ball on the ground. College football is equal parts emotion and talent, and if Rutgers dominates the emotion part, any talent advantages we have will be a moot point. This will be our version of the Gator Bowl from 2011.
|20 hours 22 min ago||Wouldn't be the first time he bailed on us||
I wasn't crazy about him coming back after leaving us for a rival in ND. So if he wanted to leave, then don't let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Yeah, it's too bad Shane's name is sharing the headlines||
At least no one will scapegoat him, which was my initial fear Saturday night from the BH supporters. I can't blame the desire to play, but there's a reason why parents like to send their kids to schools where the coaching staff will take care of their kid. They hope the coach will respond to situations like this with a parental hat on and not just a headset, or head that should have a headset on.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Football is on the backburner||
I mean we haven't had an on the field related post since Saturday night. Maybe the media feels like "Why ask him about the Rutgers game when he won't coach it?" or "Why ask him about recruiting when he's probably done recruiting for Michigan?"
|1 day 2 hours ago||I wish he would show up||
I'm all for him showing up. Nothing like a public shaming with pitchforks in the village square.
|1 day 2 hours ago||In that case||
I may have to see how long it'd take to get from Detroit to A2 in rush hour.
|1 day 2 hours ago||If this was happening in EL or CBus||
I'd have the popcorn out. Now I want this over ASAP.
|1 day 2 hours ago||No way Brandon lasts as AD that long||
If the Regents, President are smart, they fire this guy by 5PM.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Honestly?||
I don't even want to think about it. I would hope that Nuss or someone else on the sidelines would've told Hoke to keep him off the field after talking with the kid.
|1 day 2 hours ago||After Gibbons and now this||
DB has to go because of, well...take your pick.
BH has to go because of the product on the field and the fact that every school will negatively recruit us based on his cluelessness and less than truthfulness on the Gibbons issue. Not to mention the on-field product.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Two thoughts||
1. Thank goodness for his bad ankle I guess. Based on the words of Hoke and Nuss, Morris would've continued to play with a "probable concussion"
2. I have no problem with Nuss saying Morris should have been given a chance to finish the game, but only if the injury was not an issue. My first game as a student was the UVA game in 1995. Everybody booed Driesbach and Carr in favor of Griese. Three touchdowns later, everyone was celebrating a great comeback. So at least there was precedence for a major 4th quarter comeback with a new quarterback.
|1 day 5 hours ago||Even Bernie Smilovitz made fun of Hoke||
After playing a clip from yesterdays press conference, he said "I don't know what that means." Umms and uhhs don't make for good sound clips. Even my wife concurred. She asked me what Hoke was trying to say. I just shrugged.
|1 day 6 hours ago||What does it mean if more students show up for this...||
...than show up for the games?
|1 day 20 hours ago||$5.99 large 2-topping at Dominos||
So glad Brandon is not still CEO so I can eat this pizza with clear conscience.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Someone is talking to someone||
Even if it's on the level of regent talking to agent. I know that Manuel is really liked at UConn so it might be a good idea to start following the local bloggers and insiders in the Northeast.
|1 day 21 hours ago||OP is right about one thing||
If we were undefeated this would not be an issue. Because it would not have happened. Gardner would still be our QB and not running around on one leg, being left exposed for a headshot.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Lloyd can't turn this ship around||
Plus, he didn't exactly bring calm during the RR years and his players acted very childish during that time. Having him around to salvage this season and send us to Detroit for a bowl game is not worth the drama his former players could potentially bring.
|1 day 22 hours ago||He can't recruit anymore||
He's losing and the fans are upset and wanted him gone already. That's what the players see more than anything else.
|1 day 22 hours ago||It'll just look like bootleg Michigan gear||
I remember my dad bought a cheap Michigan jacket one year, but I always mistook it for a Detroit Tigers jacket. Needless to say, I wore it to Tiger Stadium and fit right in.
