“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”

I think if you can fix some of the problems in college soccer from a development standpoint (make the season longer, standardize the rules with FIFA, etc) I do think it has potential to help develop players.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||Left Back||
Another player to keep an eye on at left back is US under 20 international John Requejo as he just signed with Tijuana and people in youth national team circles apparently think super highly of him.

I'd also add Shawn Parker as a potential option should he make the decision to represent the United States (another German American playing in the Bundesliga who Klinnsman is apparently making a push for)

Supposedly the offensive coordinator of Cincinnati is interviewing for the head coaching job at UAB. If he were to take that job, Borges would be a good fit there, reuniting him with Tuberville.

Interestingly Kiffin has also never been a QB coach before. When he was at USC, Sarkisian handled QBs the whole time (and called the plays too I believe).

Let's be real, either

I doubt that. Because it's a public university they have to post the job for some specified time period even if they already have in mind the person they are supposed to hire.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah he is great at finding||
Yeah he is great at finding underrated talent and bringing it to MSU. But it's not like he was putting together bad defenses when he was at Ohio State when he was getting the more top tier talent. The bigger concern would be what he would do on the offensive side of the football.
|32 weeks 1 day ago||I think they would be more||
I think they would be more like to get Dantanio than Narduzzi (with Narduzzi then taking over MSU). More likely Dantonio is in for a big raise as he doesn't get paid much now and I can't imagine he would be leave as long as MSU takes care of him like they should.

In theory it could have also been the case that that couldn't guarantee that Hand would be admitted to the engineering school at Michigan. I think it was stated that he was a B student and he may have not have the grades for engineering at Michigan. I think that both the engineering school and the business school have heightened requirements for athletes that many of them wouldn't qualify for.
|36 weeks 5 days ago||Farrell is usually pretty||
Farrell is usually pretty accurate. I think there have been a few cases when he's been right on other commits not coming here when our insiders have thought otherwise.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||Can we just make a large||
Can we just make a large offer of money to the Stanford offensive coordinator and see if he bites. It's unlikely but you never know unless you ask.

Al Borges did a great job today as he has a number of games while at Michigan.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||I would also really really||
I would also really really like to see them get better at the 2 minute offense.
|40 weeks 5 days ago||Loefflor does actually call||
Loefflor does actually call the plays there and is the offensive coordinator. He'd come if offered I think because of the Michigan ties. I'm not sure he's a clear upgrade over Borges though given his time at Auburn last year (where admittedly he wasn't given much to work with). And he hasn't been horrible at VA Tech but he hasn't lit it up either. He needs more seasoning. Maybe in the future but he's not ready to be our offensive coordinator.
|44 weeks 6 days ago||I don't think they gave it to||
I don't think they gave it to Devin solely for on-field accomplishments but also in recognition of all the hard work he's done in the offseason and with the expectation that he's put himself in position to have a huge year Akron game notwithstanding

I imagine Texas might make a run at either Art Briles or Gary Patterson.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||I mean the thing is in a||
I mean the thing is in a class where we're going to recruit 5 or so players we're going to want a mix of top shelf guys and more developmental ones. Even if we get someone like Looney, he's the type whose a one and done type player and we're going to want some other guys in the class who are going to stick around.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||I'm not really a fan of them||
I'm not really a fan of them in any way but it seems to me that the Eagles would be the perfect fit for Denard.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||On both McGary and Robinson,||
On both McGary and Robinson, look at how much Darius Morris and Trey Burke improved from their freshman to sophomore seasons. If those get coached up by Beilen and can show similar improvement, it would definitely be worth their while to come back.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||I think it would be better to||
I think it would be better to see what kind of success he has as offensive coordinator at Virginia Tech. If he's successful we shouldn't have a problem luring him back down the line. And if he's super successful and manages to get hired as a head coach somewhere and does well, he becomes a potential candidate down the line (like 10 to 15 years from now) to be the head coach when Hoke retires
|1 year 24 weeks ago||I mean it probably also||
I mean it probably also depends how close we get to winning it all. If we win the national championship I imagine both Hardaway and Robinson go (I assume Burke is gone no matter what). Especially since we are not going to win the national championship if Hardaway and Robinson don't play extremely well.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||Kiffin will done soon. I||
Kiffin will done soon. I expect next year will be the last for him.
|1 year 24 weeks ago||The sanctions in general seem||
The sanctions in general seem to have worked out pretty well for UCLA. USC is basically forced to take 10 or so less players than they typically would and it's seems like UCLA has been the biggest beneficiary.

I'd say that sports illustrated also looks really bad here
|1 year 28 weeks ago||Does it not seem like a||
Does it not seem like a strange time to leave the country? It's obviously been a long season, but why wouldn't he wait until National Signing Day when he could go on a longer vacation without having to worry about recruiting.
|1 year 28 weeks ago||I imagine they would first||
I imagine they would first float to the usual suspects. Jon Gruden, Chris Peterson, Gary Patterson, James Franklin, Charlie Strong, David Shaw. Then assuming they couldn't get any of those guys, they would probably hire either Diaco or someone like Art Briles.

Really Alabama is just a step above everyone else, including the rest of the SEC.

Alot of really good coaches have struggled their first year at a new school and then taken off on year 2. There's just an adjustment period

He probably won't do this, but he could also file a lawsuit alleging that the NCAA transfer restrictions violate antitrust law. I'm not an expert on antitrust law but I think they're could be a case to be had there.
