It can happen
|9 hours 25 min ago||Bohl||
Craig Bohl wouldn't be a hit hire but I think he could be outstanding. He built a powerhouse at NDSU and is one of the best game coaches I've seen. Hiring Bohl could be like when OSU hired Tressel. Small school powerhouse, not a household name, but could be the right pick.

Gus Malzahn leaving Auburn for Michigan would make no sense. It would be like if Bielema left Wisconsin for Arkansas.
Oh wait ..

It is too late for Hoke to salvage the season but not too late for the team to salvage the season.The only viable step after Saturday's Morris concussion incident and the press conferences / releases of the past 24 hours is to fire Hoke and advance an assistant to interim head coach. The interim has got to be somebody who can light a fire under the whole team and get them to play to their potential and also somebody who is respected by the whole community.
Paging Greg Mattison.
|2 days 7 hours ago||Failures all around||
I said Saturday evening that Hoke would have some big questions to answer to Brandon and possibly to the B1G and NCAA. Playing a concussed player is the kind of trouble that brings investigations. How on earth has Hoke not been proactive and spoken to his boss about the situation?
Brandon will have questions to answer to the university administration and likely the B1G and NCAA. How on earth has Brandon not asked the head coach for his perspective on it?
Failures all around.

A little defensive? I'd hate to see a lot defensive

He said / she said rumors of a player being forced to practice with a concussion got Leach fired from Texas Tech. Here the whole world saw a kid who could barely stand and had to be helped to keep balance forced into game action. Time to move on ...

Mattison. And I call him an HC candidate if he's interested. If not I hope the next HC retains him because he is the most valuable coach on staff.
|1 week 1 day ago||Ravens fan here||
I'm a big Ravens fan so with that in mind, I'll say this: John Harbaugh for Michigan head coach (if there is in fact a vacancy.)
Look at his record and look the Raven's play style. How is he not a fit for M? Also, he would most likely retain Mattison as his defensive coordinator. I think Mattison is a guy we need to keep around here as he is truly an elite DC. (And honestly if he were actually interested, I wouldn't mind Mattison taking over as HC but I can't imagine him being interested.)
Also, I've heard numerous times there is severe friction between John Harbaugh and the Ravens front office. He wanted to cut Rice on the spot after hearing of the incident in Atlantic City and has wanted to cut him the whole way but the GM and owner superceded him leaving him feeling as though he had no voice in team management. If that friction is indeed bad and one of the best coaching jobs in college is indeed open and there is indeed a better AD in place, I could see him ready to make the move to the college ranks and succeeding.
|1 week 2 days ago||My take ...||
1) Who is your starter at QB moving forward?
If Gardner is healthy and can get the ball out fast, it's his game. If not, Morris.
2) What is your defensive philosophy? (more press man/ more zone/ good mix of both)
Keep it as is. The D has not been the problem.
3) How do you cure the offense?
The offensive line is not getting the job done ... duh. So screens, draws, zone options, slants, etc. More ways to get the ball as quickly as possible into a playmaker's hands wearing the correct color of jersey not behind the offensive line. Fewer traditional runs and fewer downfield shots.
4) Are you changing any of the starters?
Open up offensive line competition. Find five starters who are getting the job done best. For playmakers on offense, keep it as is unless there's health problems. On defense, keep it the same.
Just my $.02.

He certainly didn't break the law but this is just another addition to a list of questionable behavior by Winston. I think a suspension is appropriate if nothing else to let him know that he is not above consequences. And I imagine NFL GMs are taking note. Nobody likes headcases but everybody knows that kids eventually grow up.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||To me what hammered it home||
To me what hammered it home wasn't that Rice hit his fiance. We already knew that part of the story. It's how hard he hit her and how little remorse he had afterward that got to me.
When I first heard about it, I figured it was possible that she was really drunk and her lack of consciousness had less to do with physical force than it did a whole lot of alcohol. Or maybe I was hoping that would be the case because I hated to think one of the best and hardest playing backs in the leauge could be a scumbag near the level of Jerry Sandusky.
Upon seeing the video, I was chilled to the bone. He hit her with an incredible force, and he's one of the strongest men out there. I'm not sure from the video if she was knocked unconscious from his fist or her head hitting the rail but I am confident that hit was strong enough to do serious brain damage if she was hit in the wrong place.
Even more chilling was how he just picked her up and dragged her out. He didn't have a look of remorse. He didn't fall to the ground in tears. When the elevator stopped he didn't go panicking for help. He dragged her off to his room as if she were a sack of potatoes.
Cut and indefinite suspension are appropriate. Regardless of what criminal charges have been / will be filed, Ray Rice and his now wife will need some serious counseling work. If Rice ever resumes an athletic career or revisits Rutgers or his high school again, he will need to have very seriously changed his attitude and temper. For the time being, I hope he stays quiet and he and his wife take their counseling as seriously as possible. I know nothing about her or their relationship (beyond the aforementioned video) so I will not pass any judgement on her character or decision to marry him / stick by his side.

The way I see it is for Tebow to be a top tier quarterback he would need the entire offense revamped to something similar to his Florida days. Easy reads in the passing game, read-option runs, and lots of QB run plays. This offense would require new players and coaches across the board. No way that kind of risk is worth it to maximize one guy's talents, especially considering there's no telling if such an offense would even work against elite NFL defenses. If Tebow wanted to succeed, he would have needed to embrace a non quarterback role, but he was so stubbornly set on being a franchise quarterback.

The thought of a Bud Foster defense going up against a spread offense with new offensive linemen across the board, a new set of backs, and now a redshirt freshman quarterback makes part of me cackle with joy.

Wow. Just wow. I believe Rutgers fans are in for a wakeup call.

Watch what Pittsburgh does with Dri Archer out of Kent State. Similar size, ran a 4.26 in the combine (!!), actually beat Denard in the 100m dash in FL high school track championship. Too small of a frame to carry the ball often and also fought injuries in college. At KSU, Archer was a speed back, slot receiver, punt and kick returner. Had an absolutely sick 2012 season. If Pittsburgh uses him effectively, Jags should be able to do the same with Denard.

My BS is in computer science from Bowling Green. Upon graduation, 100% of my class either had a job offer or acceptance to a grad school program, and I know OSU is ranked above BGSU in computer science.

Rutgers is a wonderful addition to the conference. The university serves as a daily reminder of the value of a good PR department.

To really make some heads spin, Rich Rodriguez had more top ten wins in his Michigan tenure than Meyer has so far at Ohio.
|21 weeks 4 days ago||I honestly thought after that||
I honestly thought after that game that the team had turned a corner and the D would lead them to 8+ wins while the offense would continually improve. Too bad I was clearly wrong. I do still think the 2008 D was pretty good in terms of talent, but the offense forced them into so many bad situations with too little rest that they wore with the grind of the season. Too bad Gerg had to come along the next year.

The second Petrino era at Louisville has started quite well I see.

If the UF job is open in December I could see Harbaugh interested. Great job, easy recruiting, great pay, and the media bias toward the SEC makes competing for national titles a bit easier. Seems like a slam dunk for Harbaugh.

I have always thought there should be a limit to review time like in the NFL. I genuinely do not believe review time has any bearing on attendance as I don't see it being a deciding reason to attend a game or not, but the game experience would greatly improve if review time was no longer than a single stadium announcement.

How about Northwestern in 2008? Lots of factors led to poor attendance - cold, rainy, 2008 offense. The stadium looked largely empty.
