|2 hours 38 sec ago||Which one?||
I wonder what Hoke thinks when he watches the team play right now. Do you think he thinks "if they had kept me this is I would've done too" or does he think "holy shit - that dude can coach - I could never get the team to do that".
|2 hours 5 min ago||Pretty universal down here||
I will tell you I'm getting a LOT of comments to the effect of "welcome back" from my friends and neighbors and to a man they are respectful and more than a bit worried about the game for the first time in a LONG time.
And they all think we will win this Saturday.
|7 hours 46 min ago||I guess we see it differently||
The player maintains the right at all times prior to signing the LOI to say "no". They can say no to the verbal, they can say no to the demand he cancels the officials and he can say no to the scholly offer. Last time I checked Meyer wasnt negotiating with a gun in his hand - just a piece of paper.
Both parties are acting in their own self-interest and I see nothing wrong with it. The good news is it might benefit Michigan so for that I'm happy. But I think what Meyer is doing is perfectly acceptable.
|8 hours 7 min ago||It's not||
And i dont see why what Meyer is doing is wrong. He extended an offer, Walker accepted it and now Walker wants to look around some. That's fine but OSU isnt obligated to hold the spot open while he does. Meyer is telling him to fish or cut bait in regards to that previous committment and personally I would do the exact same thing.
This issue has always reminded me of an engagement. If one party decides during the engagement they want to start dating again then the engagement is off. That doesnt mean they might not eventually get back together but for now, at least one side doesnt want to make a committment.
I thought Hoke's policy was solid here and I think Meyer's is too.

A quick comparison
Ours is clearly better

As long as we keep thriving every school looking to make a coaching change is going to seek their "Harbaugh" that will turn the program instantly around and make chicken salad out of chicken shit. " I mean if Michigan can do it - why cant we?"
Unfortunately most schools are going to end up with their "Charlie Weis" instead.
|10 hours 42 min ago||Time & technology constraints||
That was my thought exactly. Given the limitations of time and the fact that not everyone can talk and be heard on a headset at the same time I wonder exactly how this works. I just sat through a 2 hour conference call where two people tried to talk at the same time a bunch resulting in nobody being heard. And trying to do this in 30 seconds or less seems very challenging indeed.
I don't doubt they do it but there HAS to be some additional nuances to this concept we're not seeing.
|11 hours 2 min ago||Hmmm||
For some odd reason taking a deep dive into Michigan's latest game isnt as much fun for OSU writers and their fans as it once was.
I wonder why.
|1 day 1 hour ago||FWIW||
I worked summers at the GM truck assembly plant in Pontiac in 1978 & 1979. I was a gun welder the first year and an engine setter the second. We worked the afternoon shift (4:00pm to 1:00am) and almost always worked an hour of OT I made stupid money for a 19-20 year old as I was taking home something like $500-$600/week which was a LOT for the late 70's.
Anyways there was a bar across the street on Woodward called Duckey's and we went to "lunch" everyday at 8:30pm to Duckey's where we "ate" several beers and shots and then went back to work. We also frequently smoked a joint (or two) coming back from lunch. In short we were completely wasted most of the times after lunch and EVERYBODY knew it.
Not an urban legend my friend. I was there - it's absolutely true.

Your kidding right? You call a post that claims efficiency, focus and "knocking them out early" are the keys to the game is earnest?

"If he and Larkin both stay up most of the year, that's pretty persuasive proof that their choices were wise."
I think it's also pretty damning on our coaching staff given the results of the team last year.

So the people who thought he got tossed for his role in a video were sort-of right it seems. Just not the video they thought.

Boy Dave and Adam sure see the underperformers the same way. It's erie how similar they see things.
Edit: Once Seth fixes this our snark will look odd to say the least. Trust us readers from the future - we had a good reason for these comments at one time.
|6 days 14 hours ago||No worries mate||
Father time might be a bitch that's true but genetics are my friend. I'm 6'5", 245, and lift three times a week. Didnt look to me like the mouthy, insolent, spoiled, disrespectful little prick would be much of a fight.
FWIW I do think that the lack of people getting their ass whooped today causes a LOT of this. Back in my day there isnt a doubt in my mind that fucker wouldn't have been jacked early by the manager and nothing else would happen. The fact that people like that asshole think they can talk, shove, spit without any fear of reprisal leads to more of it.

What is this "Fan Duel" and "Draft Kings" you speak of? I am not familiar with these companies.
Maybe they should consider advertising more often.
|1 week 7 hours ago||I've changed my opinion||
I will freely admidt that I was someone who thought that if Rich had been allowed to bring Casteel then things would've been different and based on what I've seen over the past couple of years no longer hold that opinion. I think in retrospect the defense would've been better but nowhere near good enough to compete for B1G titles. And I think Space absolutely nailed it when he said that it was the position coaches for both Rich & Hoke that hold a fair amount of sway in determining the negative outcome we've seen with both.

I have a suggestion for the board FAQ section on thread creation:
*If you stumble upon news or information of any sort involving Michigan and it's more than one hour old IT HAS ALREADY BEEN POSTED." You may not see it, it may have been pulled by the Mods but trust me - over one hour old, it's been posted.
Don't do it.
