- he'd crap away a few games because he doesn't understand clock management or because he did something riverboat gambler-ey.
- he'd do something dumb on the recruiting trail and / or with someone's elibility.
- his teams would be infuriating on the offensive side of the ball.
|3 days 19 hours ago||that 1-6 team...||
interesting (to me, at least) that that team was 1-6 on january 22, 2011: as it happens, almost exactly four years ago.
those four years have been completely enjoyable, and they include lots and lots of moments where the path that the team or individual players might take wasn't at all clear. the constant? great coaching that wrung a whole lot of production out of some fairly raw talent. that's still here, and still being applied to yet another young group of as-yet-unformed talent. there's no reason to not continue to give this staff every benefit of the doubt.
in beilein we trust, man.
|4 days 22 hours ago||screw him.||
a pouting, whiney, douchebag. this is only the latest example.
|1 week 5 days ago||it was a ball.||
my girlfriend and i always try come in for a twofer basketball weekend; one men's and one women's, and this year was a ball. where the men's game felt a little sluggish, the women's game was terrific, fast paced, and intense on both sides. kba has those girls on point every minute. it sure was nice to beat those osu ba$tards, particularly with their smarmy coach...they got a ton of calls, and he was still complaining about every whistle.
the girls are a helluva fun team to watch already - they lose goree and ristovski after this year, but the kids and the incoming class look terrific.
man...between hockey having a big weekend, harbaugh, and both hoops teams, it's really fun to be michigan right now.
|1 week 5 days ago||exactly||
i read it twice, just to make sure i hadn't missed that...
|2 weeks 5 days ago||coach combos||
maybe oregon, with dana altman and helfrich? altman is about where beilein was four years ago - clearly a good coach without a lot of major hardware to go with it. helfrich is (imho) as yet uproven, but so far so good.
or ucla? alford / mora? a notch below, certainly.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||the list is long.||
...most of them are more appropriately described as claim chowder, but hey. whatever.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||"schefty"||
full of shit then, full of shit now.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||"schefty"||
full of crap then, full of crap now. it's all coming from his rectum, every last word.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||and this, my friends...||
...is why trying to read tea leaves on this shit is completely pointless onanism. 99.9% of the "info" out there is fabricated out of whole cloth, "i think this" disguised as "sources."
wake me when it's over.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||hey, we tore off the halo...||
...i think that was harder than turning down the pregame music and letting us hear the band during timeouts would be.
calling the kraft people and telling them "NO MORE MAC AND CHEESE" would seem to be even simpler than that.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||argh.||
we hired who? when did we hire them? why didn't we announce this earlier? does that mean harbaugh? not harbaugh? what does stephen ross think? how about shemy? i think it means we got harbaugh. or that we don't. or we do. why do we need a search firm anyway? it must mean that harbaugh's not coming. or that he is.
there, that should about cover it.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Argh||
Now we think that what Shemy thinks matters? What about Bo's widow! Stephen Ross? His children?
Wake me when this is over.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||uh huh,||
i'll agree with that, with the caveat that a quality coach can and should win at least 8 games next season with this group.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||yes...||
...i hesitated on that one, and i'm almost to the point where i'd take a job-hopping weasel in exchange for five years of kicking the crap out of dantonio and urban meyer. almost.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||'winner'||
lots of guys are 'winners' that would continue to win at michigan, but that doesn't mean they're the best choices. pete carroll is a winner. saban. calipari. bobby petrino. i don't want any of those guys.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||yes, 10-3 / 11-2 would shut people up...||
...just like brady hoke going 11-2 did.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||re: austin, trgovac, goodwin...||
...and the 'because they've been to ann arbor' qualification.
i would submit (and wrote it at the time) that that was and is brady hoke's only qualification for this job, or at least it was the only one that mattered. look how that turned out.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||agreed, however:||
the following things would probably also happen with les miles at michigan:
not saying these things should or shouldn't disqualify him (or harbaugh, for that matter), just that there's a bit more to the les miles experience.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||man, i hate this.||
because this is what you do. you do your due diligence and look at everyone. talking to someone doesn't mean that you've offered them, or that you've ruled out someone else.
beyond that, good heavens. calm down. most of these rumors are manufactured out of whole cloth anyway.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||i wish him the best.||
...and wish he was sticking around for another year.
the lousy team he played on robbed him of some luster.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||big ten coordinators||
couldn't it also be greg davis? (ducks flying bricks)
|6 weeks 4 days ago||has he?||
did i miss an announcement?
i would humbly suggest that greg mattison may, in fact, happily coach here without hoke. money does that sometimes.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||he should be invited...||
...just keep josh groban out of there.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||ha!||
my live feed cut out just after he said he wanted to get rid of the term "michigan man."
i'm SURE that is coincidence. good god, let it be a coincidence.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||hmmmm...good question.||
i guess i'd go with gardner, miller, and ryan. i'd be happy to see either of the glasgows make it, too...walk ons who've become good players and all that.
it's hard to say, of course - the players vote on this, and we don't see the things they do...the locker room is different than the field or the press conference.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||i want it,||
...and i want it now. waah.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Ok||
We'll play any one, any time, any where.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||also dead wrong.||
schools of choice is available to public schools. mona shores made a run to ford field due in large part to kids who came over from muskegon heights. every school in muskegon county got some of those kids.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||WRONG WRONG WRONG.||
no, we don't.
90-95% of the kids on this most recent team are children of former mcc students or have been in the system since they were in first grade. unless we're really good at recruiting six-year-olds it's just not happening.
as to the 'geographic area' argument, that doesn't fly, either. schools of choice made that go away for public schools years ago.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||i would love to see them.||
...they are also not some sort of black magic that only brian is privy to.
if you want to see them, i might suggest that you pick up a shovel and get to work.
