A win is a win and we don't know who is going to play (ie Funchess). But if we can't beat a bottom half Pac12 team at home, i am done with this head coach. My ND hangover has finally ended, but we didn't see improvement from this team until the 2nd half last wk vs Miami, a truly dreadful football team. Let's get this one behind us and chalk up ND as an anomaly and hope we can continue to improve each week and compete for B10 championship.
If we lose this one, Hoke is done. I actually don't want that to happen, as he is building a real program again from the bottom's up. But if he can't beat teams like this at home, we need a head coaching upgrade.

|6 weeks 2 days ago||Douches you say? Reality, that's the truth...||
Sorry that i have a job and dont post every other day to get my "point" total up on M Go Blog....you need to face reality...this team has some talent. Has some challenges and needs to get the benefit of the doubt. But they were totally unprepared. Any reasonable and sound person can see that after tonight. Time to take off the blue colored glasses and face reality....
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Since Harbaugh is a neighbor and friend of mine||
and classmate, you can piss and moan about my 118 pts all you want, but he is definitely considering it. He hates Balke and he has not signed the bs offer they gave him before the start of this season. At the end of the day, Hoke is over his head and he is not going to be anything other than a .650 winning coach at a premier school. I wish i was wrong, but tonight proved it soundly.....Let's see how it plays out. Luckly for Hoke, the B10 is awful this year, so 9-3 is possible. But you and I both know that this team was unprepared tonight. He needs to go...
|6 weeks 2 days ago||So fuck me because i speak the truth?||
Grow up...you need to look in the mirror. The team was totally unprepared and ready to compete tonight.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, defend Hoke after he was a total embarrassment||
You can defend the head coach after he was totally unprepared? Really? Come on, let's look in the mirror kids. You can slam me all you want, but this was a total and unmitigated joke tonight. They were not prepared and they looked like shit in all phases of the game.
Blame me, fine. But this was like Rich Rod vs Toledo tonight....

He is not a premier D1 coach...plain and simple...

Why oh why couldn't we have run that Copper Bowl 2 point conversion vs Ohio....what coulda been. Thank goodness 2013 is o-vah!!!!
|1 year 4 days ago||Why they don't have a Wildcat pkg with Denard and MJD||
is beyond me...just for a change of pace at least...less opptys for the pass pro to not break down and result in sacks and INTS...the other team would actually have to prepare for it as well...what a waste of a real talent in Denard...

|2 years 7 weeks ago||Delusions! Should be your topic header||
what the hell were you watching?
A total domination by a better team and a better coaching staff. To watch Borges try and turn Shoelace into Tom Brady was a disgrace. What was the ONE THING THAT BAMA WAS WORRIED ABOUT? Denard's legs, and Borges did nothing, nothing to use this to his advantage...no spread option...multiple handoffs to arguably the slowest RB in the stable....at least Norfleet showed he has some wheels and i would have liked to see him carry the ball. I guess they were worried about fumbling, so giving Smith the ball over 10 times to gain a yard or two was an acceptable compromise.
Here's the rub...we want to avoid the tomato can games, but it sure looks like it would have done team 133 some good to play easier competition in game 1.
So be it, they lost, they learn and hopefully have that cliche'd improvement from game 1 to game 2. Of course the competition next week doesn't hurt. But its the triple option, so some additional frustration will happen next week.
The topper is that injuries happen, but they are less likely to happen against inferior competition in earlier season games since most of your ones don't play the whole game. Just unlucky for Countess and Moore to get hurt, but playing Lewan with 4 mins left in the game when its 41-14 is plain stupid. The back ups should have been in and there is no one that can reasonably argue this fact.
I find it a bit ironic that Arizona is losing to Toledo right now...could Rich Rod lose to Toledo twice in his inaugural seasons at a new program at home?
I guess the saving grace of today is that the B10 looks abosolutely awful (save OSU) and there's a lot of football to be played. Let's hope Countess and Lewan are available for most of the conference schedule.

|2 years 7 weeks ago||First name, family name...middle name go with M legend||
if the wife will go for it! My son's middle name is Yost and he has a family first name after his great grandfather. I have a very cool wife and it helps that we all went to Michigan and her parent's are retired professors as well. We call him Yost. He's also a hockey goalie here in NorCal and I didn't push the sport on him...go figure. He had a great time at Red's hockey camp in July and needless to say, Red was very complimentary about the name to my wife.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Do you know Jim Harbaugh personally?||
Sorry, but you are misguided....whether you like to admit it or not, most schools, including Michigan, DO steer players to majors that are less rigorous so they can concentrate on as much time as possible to football. Yes it hurts to admit it, but I was a trainer for the football team for 3 years when Harbaugh was there and challenging majors were the exception, not the rule. Players who come to mind were Stefan Humphries and Ken Higgins (a fraternity brother), who were excellent students and quite frankly destined to success outside of pro football. While Stefan ended up being a very good lineman for the Broncos, he is better known as a doctor now and Higgy is a venture capitalist after getting his law degree from Harvard (he still notes to this day that law school at Harvard was easier than undergrad B School at Michigan, when coupled with the demands of football). So get off your high horse.
I played sports against Harbaugh growing up in Ann Arbor and there was no question that he was a stud and a leader and was destined to go to Michigan and be successful there. It all came to fruition and he has quite the resume to attest to his excellence and stature as a Michigan man.
So spare me your bs about how Jim Harbaugh is not a Michigan man because he criticized his alma mater. He loves Michigan as much as any other Michigan man and deserves the respect and honor affored them with his proven dedication to Michigan. You can piss and moan becuase he doesn't kiss your ass and tell you what you want hear 24/7, but them's the facts and sometimes the facts hurt.
And BTW, hoping he is a failure in his career endeavors is quite the noble position. Grow up and save the whine for your next cheese party...

|3 years 46 weeks ago||I am all for your idea...||
but i think that the thought process Brandon has shared with the public tells us otherwise.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Stanford, 11-1, 4th in the BCS||
this is my future under Harbaugh?!? Orange or Fiesta Bowl? I'll take it...
|3 years 46 weeks ago||It's all about the team, the team, the team||
unfortunately, the team today only consistents of a very good offense that can move the ball between the 20's against good defenses and can't score points. When was the last time you saw a team going for it on 4th and 8 at the 35yard line? When the special teams were so damn embarrassing that they can't expect to pin them inside the 20 yrd line on a punt or make a 45 yard FG more than 50% of the time. When 2 facets of your team are so god awful that you throw all caution to the wind, you know your team is ill prepared and not ready to compete in a major conference. The gig is up. Sorry I can't help you here, as you cannot expect the O to score every time unless they are playing U Mass......
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Good luck with that||
it's not gonna happen....I am eager for a change as much as the next fan, but it doens't make any sense. Brandon is too calculated in his moves to try and make a drastic move in the next 4 wks, as this would be a knee jerk reaction of a desparate institution. If he wants a new HC, he will make his decision and move forward. If he has already discussed a wholesale change of the D staff with Coach Rod, he would line it up and implement it after the bowl game. The only scenario where i could see this playing out is if Coach Rod is fired and a whole new staff was brought in. But again, I don't see this happening til after the bowl game. It sure sucks for recruiting, but this is HIS decision and HIS legacy that he is dealing with and given his demeanor up to this point, a knee jerk move is likely not in the cards.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||It's about W's and L's||
at the end of the day, it about the wins and losses. Everything else can be psycho-analyzed until the cows come how. He just hasn't won enough and couple that with o-fer vs MSU, OSU and PSU and you have a shit storm of gigantic proportions. I thought he would make it through these last 2 wks since most of us expected that they would result in losses, but now even the most faithful alumni and former players are losing faith. They are simply sick and tired of the excuses and the losses to our rivals. If we saw progress outside of the offense, there would be a glimmer of hope, but it has not materialized, and people want a change.
We all know the Detroit MSM is seriously skewed by many from MSU, so we shit can their drivel, but former players see what we are seeing and its simply embarrassing. Enough is enough. Coach Rod is a great guy and he has not gotten a fair shake from the media, but that does not excuse the lack of progress. It was simply not a good match and Brandon needs to think about the future and find a better fit.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||It's a nice idea...||
but Harbaugh would bring Vic F with him as his DC. Unlike Coach Rod, when Stanford's D sucked last year, he cleaned house and let his new DC bring in some of his own guys....net result, 9 or 10th worst D in Pac10 last year is one of the top 3 this year.....so it CAN be done. You have to admire Coach Rod's loyalty to his assistants, but its obvious that they are not cutting it coaching the D. The apologists can chime in now about youth, injuries, etc...but let's face it, the D did not improve as the season progressed, they regressed.
I just got back from the Stanford/Ore State game and the can of whoop ass that Stanford opened up on that team was impressive. Their third shutout of the season. Any way you look at it, impressive.
BTW, those naysayers saying Harbaugh couldn't adapt to Shoelace, Tate or DG as QB are high...this is the same coach that used Tavita Pritchard as his QB to upset USC in the Coliseum. He adapted this year's O without Toby G. He plays a mix of power I, spread, west coast and shit i have never seen before to run an innovative offense based around the playmakers on the field. You would NOT see another regression to 3-9 or 4-8 with Harbaugh as coach. Any you would also not see an embarrassing special teams display like we saw today and all season with the current coaching staff. Even when Harbaugh didn't have the horses and his first 2 years, their special teams were respectable.
My ticket renewal and $5K Victor's Club donation sit on my desk until Brandon makes his decision.
|3 years 50 weeks ago||Stanford 7-1, M 5-3....there's your bs...||
Read the thread idiot...it was in response to Stanford not being a destination school and a difficult place to recruit for, while Michigan has these advantages....for elementary dolts like yourself that just want to flame instead of having civil debate. This was simple snap shot to demonstrate my point....Harbs can recruit anywhere and if he's the next head coach in A2, the recruiting will not suffer. To your flamed point, its what you DO with your recruits that matter and it sure appears Harbaugh and his selected coaching staff are doing more with his recruits than our beloved Coach Rod is doing.
Either way, nothing will be decided until the end of the season and entire body of work is reviewed by Brandon. I sure hope they can get that 6th win, as the seniors on this team deserve some type of post season reward for their commitment and dedication, and the extra practice time is beneficial for building long term success.
|3 years 50 weeks ago||Seems Harbs recruits pretty well at a non destination school..||
Current Verbal Commits with Rival's star rankings. Much better than Rich Rod's destination school....some more facts for the Rich Rod apologists to chew on. Appears that "recruiting will suffer" meme with a coaching change is bunk. Though you are right about the NFL...the Niners will come calling later this year....
Stanford: 8- 4 stars, 13- 3 stars, 1 -2 star
Michigan: 3 -4 stars, 8 -3 stars
|3 years 50 weeks ago||sorry, but the rich rod experiment didn't work||
I have rooted for coach rod from day one. But he simply hasn't gotten it done. He is no doubt a master of offense, but he is not only an OC. He's a HC and in this role, he's not gettin' it done. I hate like hell to admit it, but his lack of attention to defense is his achilles heel and we all know you don't win championships without defense. I have been in bay area for 20+ yrs since leaving my hometown of ann arbor and its clear to me that what harbaugh has done here is nothing short of miraculous. Take a quick peek at his current commits. 8 four star recruits at stanford. A school with zero tolerance for substandard grades and test scores to be admitted. Meanwhile, M struggles to find players to join the winningest program of all time.
Its done, harbaugh needs to be brandon's #1 focus. He will have them competing for B10 championships in 2-3 yrs. The only obstacle with Harbs is some fabily dynamics that have to be addressed with his previous wife and kids that he doesn't want to adandon by moving back to A2. If he can't resolve this, he will stay at S for a long time or move to the Niners HC position that will oepn up at the end of the year.(Though I doubt he takes it...)
I am hoping he is able to work out the family dilemma and resurrect Bo's legacy. I know the guy and he has the right intentions and simply loves college football and what it stands for in developing young men into valuable contributors to society.
I have zero ill will towards coach rod and think he is a terrific person as well, but this has simply not worked out.
|4 years 8 weeks ago||Only one way to voice my opinion...||
The $5k per year i donate to the Victors club and renewal for club level seating is going to cease to exist....just like The Game on the last wk of the regular season. And I only go to 1-3 games a year depending on my travel schedule from California and give the other tix to friends who are loyal UofM faithful.
This is simply dispicable and I won't renew when they change it.
The Curse of Bo's Passing continues.......
