If his mug shot comes up when you type his name in on google, he can't be Michigan's coach.
It is the fourth result...

What if you or somebody close to you never got a second chance?
Kids make mistakes... I'm not sure this is worse than Kevin Grady falling asleep at the wheel with a BAC>0.2, and he stayed on the team.

I'd rather beat 'em while they are at full strength and it adds to the pile of shady shite from Colombus..

So much space!
I watched a game for the first time last weekend and was pleasantly surprised with how entertaining the product was, with a full stadium and riotious crowd.. It was almost as if the many technique mistakes and misplays by the players on the field made for a more active watching experience: he didn't do this he should have done that.

I love me some dirty, pretentous, southern frat-stars..... they get so wasted (at least at the derby), that you can take their southern bells like candy from the candy drawer at work (don't want anyone to catch you in the act, but a garunteed success at getting that candy).

Please include this feature in a board or diary post, or in the Tuesday recruiting, or in a separate post altogether with a clever title.

At least we can focus on the strengths of our team and use the deadline this year to get those final peices. Closers can be had in July - if Rondon doesn't get it together. I'm awaiting a summer where we don't need help at 5 positions and can get a quality peice or two to put us over the top.

I have the luxury of a 5 minute bus ride to the UMHS each morning, and all my coworkers commute. Thanks co-technician, lab manager, primary investigator, husbandry staff, and clerical staff for giving me all of your work today while you sit at home by the fire with a cup of coco and a book/sarcasm/i hate you all.

I just bought season tickets.
My plan is to sell a few games to cover the cost of the tickets. Have no idea where they are, however they are 2nd year grad student tickets, and she went to undergrad here in the honors program. The tickets should be amazing because I am not in a seating group.
I know its early but feel free to contact me if you are intersted in one of the "big 3" as well as any other game.

He was going to transfer to Oklahoma, but they would not accept his credits, so he is happy to be back.
In the time before he left, he was working out hard and looked like a complete beast. He is a funny, hardworking guy and a team player that I was sad to see go, but happy he is back.
Although he had no bad things to say about RR, he is excited to play for a coach that takes pride in defense.

Is Lloyd Carr is Behind The Disaster at Michigan
The disaster that has going on at Michigan over the last 3 years has largly been orchestrated by former Head Coach Lloyd Carr and his minions.
First Les Miles and now Jim Harbaugh have been overlooked to Coach the Michigan Football team because Lloyd Carr doesn't want them in Ann Arbor.
Lloyd Carr believes that he should be on the Mount Rushmore of Michigan Football alongside Fielding H. Yost, Fritz Crisler and Bo Schembechler because of his 1997 National Championship. Lloyd has spent his years in retirement building a coalition that we will call "Lloyd's boys." He has spent a lot of time creating a division between Bo Schembechler's players (the Schembechlers) and his own. In short, he is more concerned about his own legacy than the well-being of Michigan football.
Moles in Ann Arbor tried to lay the story out for me and I will do my best to relay what I was told.
"Lloyd's boys," believe they have the right to shape the program because they won a National Championship and want to return the program to one of Lloyd's old Assistant Coaches, Ron English, Brady Hoke or Mike Deboard.
Pete Thamel of the New York Times alluded to the warring factions in his article today.
The "the Schembechlers," believing they are the standard at Michigan want to return the program to Bo's direct lineage by hiring one of his former players.
That is the rift, Michigan's goal now is to find a coach to bridge the divide. This is why Brady Hoke shouldn't really be a viable option. Nobody believes he is the guy to calm the waters. The "old Schembechlers" are having none of Brady Hoke.
Lloyd Carr doesn't want Harbaugh to get the job, remember, he didn't hire Harbaugh in 2002 to be a QB Coach, instead opting for another much less successful former Michigan QB, Scott Loeffler. Lloyd's ego and paranoia is clearly clouding his judgement and he had become a distraction in Ann Arbor before new Athletic Director David Brandon asked him not to come to work anymore. Lloyd's nose was also bent out of shape when Harbaugh made comments about Michigan's academic standards at Michigan. Lloyd knows Harbaugh will overwhelm the program and he will be an afterthought in Ann Arbor.
Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman loves Lloyd Carr, because of his fund-raising at Mott's Children's Hospital; he can do no wrong in her eyes. She wants nothing to do with Miles or Harbaugh because Lloyd has poisoned the well for former Bo players as they represent a return to Bo's lineage and not Lloyd's. Well informed sources believe Harbaugh wasn't even offered a contract, that it was a rouse to placate the fan base.
It is interesting to note that the "Lloyds" were the ones who sabotaged Les Miles's chance to get the Michigan job when they hired Rodriguez three years ago. "The Lloyds" leaked the story to Kirk Herbstreit early so he was forced to strongly deny interest in the Michigan job before the National Championship game.
Ironically Les Miles may have aligned himself with the "Lloyds" in order to get Rodriguez out.
My sources also claim that Lloyd has sabotaged Rich Rod at every turn during his tenure at Michigan, including a hand in leaking the "practice-gate" information to the Detroit Free Press.
In the end, the two factions are only hurting Michigan football, the players and Rich Rodriguez. Rich Rod was thrown to the dogs and it is unfair and unseemly. He thought he was hired into a unified Michigan program and he was duped. He didn't make it better with his own mistakes, but he was doomed form day one.
This information comes from two separate sources with no knowledge of the other, I found that stunning and hard to believe until I quizzed them individually without the others knowledge.

Kind of taking it for granted that whomever becomes the next coach of UM will know how to coach football.
Theres nothing wrong with a little celebrity and positive buzz that would come with a hire of a coach of great stature (pretty much only like Gruden at this point in this realm of characters, but it would apply to most candidates).

Lets trust our edge players and play aggressively. So what if we get beat for a big play? That has happened already. Big risk-big reward in exchange for bend don't break or at least mixed in will make me happy and think that GRob is actually trying to build a winner.
