Belleville one of 94 is my favorite one.
|15 weeks 6 days ago||Seconded||
But that is logical.
|16 weeks 3 days ago||Remember||
Just remember everyone was giddy with the Nussmeir hire and that didn't work out well either. Just because someone transitions to a new gig doesn't mean doom. People have to get promoted at some point and if JH is happy to do that for Michigan than we all should be. If you're for us, you're for us!

Goes the Harbaugh!!
|16 weeks 4 days ago||Didn't see the Harbaugh introduction||
What did Harbaugh!! say when he was introduced at the game? Any chants?
|18 weeks 1 day ago||If it doesn't happen||
If it doesn't happen, Bursley is officially at fault.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||How Awesome||
Just to feed the beast a little: what if he wore that as an undershirt as a subtle message to Hackett that he was accepting the job.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Opposing viewpoints||
The group think on this board is becoming awful. Just because someone has a view/opinion/report that does not align with your personal desires does not give justification to completely write someone off as a has been. Big whoop. He reported/tweeted something you didn't like. Carry on and embrace it.

Pelini as DC for les is more with associate head coach/coach in waiting title.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||No need to complain||
I'm sure miles will keep the pipeline and contacts he created in LA for the benefit of Michigan.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Les is More!||
I'm going all in on the miles bandwagon.
|21 weeks 5 days ago||Raback it is pure gold||
I've tried to invoke your powers on a few occasions with limited success. You are powerful O'Raback-One
|25 weeks 18 hours ago||AD the coach now?||
I love how commenters seem to think the AD has a direct correlation to wins on the field. President Schlissel wants someone who will run a clean department that prides itself on academics. It isn't like the AD will be coaching the team ala Brandon. Schlissel even admitted the AD will run athletics, all of them. If any of the candidates aren't corrupt let him/her oversee M.

Pray tell good sir: Who is this Raback you speak of?
|33 weeks 4 days ago||When I used to regularly post...||
Back in my day we had a submission period whereby mgousers could create a banner and it would be voted on by the community.

I for one am glad of this latest development. Kudos to you good sir for finding this treasure.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||Ref your 85 points stat||
Last three years O$U didn't care we were wounded or re-building, they called it a victory all the same. To hell with that idea. They have some of the best recruits money can buy and we still beat them. We have the same team as last year and this year we outcoached them and outmanned them. They are sore losers (see the classless bucknuts thread on the 'Board) let's not lend them any credit they don't deserve.

Why aren't people more open about his coaching past. He has lineage to the Harbaugh family AND coached under Carr:
I've always liked the Hokester and I think it is a great hire. Besides, it only takes the first three games (wins) for him to get to .500 - then no one can complain he is a sub-500 coach.
|4 years 15 weeks ago||Everyone needs to relax...||
Good gosh, how quickly the tide turns on this board. So what. So we missed out on a coach that may or may not have even been offered a job. So we missed out on a guy with questionable clock management skills and that sorely lacks scruples in player relations. We don't know anything that is going on with this search.
For all of you RR lovers, I'm surprised you're not taking his advice and "getting a life." There is more to U of M than Brandon flying around the country trying to gauge interests and ask people for their insights. There is also more to this world than to call for an AD's job after a coaching search that, by all indications, he is taking his time with. OMG, we miss out on a 4 star recruit from BFE - BIG DEAL. I am sure there is more to the story than we all can speculate. Brandon knows what he is doing, relax.
As for the search, let's see what we have learned:
1) Harbaugh dreamed of going to the NFL, and earned his right to choose to pursue his dream
2) Les Miles was considered by all to have a spot at the table if Harbaugh pursued his dreams, but, if you paid any attention to Les you heard him promise his players and school that he would be back next season - looking back, that wasn't coach speak. Maybe he does honor his word.
3) Brady Hoke has professed his undying love for U of M and that he would take this job in a moment's notice. Don't we want someone who WANTS to be here, who can put together an amazing staff of coordinators, and win us 9-13 games per year? Sounds pretty good to me. Lloyd lite all you want, but, I won't complain. My hat has always been in the Hoke basket.
IMO, we all just need to let the rest of the process unfold. Who knows. Maybe Brandon left last night because he knew that Les was committed to LSU, so, he just pinged him about Hoke and other topics. The 4pm meeting was also called before Les and Brandon met. Maybe Brandon already knew something? Let's just enjoy being M fans/almuni.
Now, do as I do and:

|4 years 15 weeks ago||I'll second that||
I heard from someone high up in the food chain that Les to M is done and tomorrow is a formality. Take it what it's worth, but, worth seconding this post.
|4 years 15 weeks ago||Since Posting New Forums||
Since posting new forums is still fickle, consider this thread hijacked with some fresh news:
|4 years 15 weeks ago||Nope||
|4 years 15 weeks ago||If You're going to do this then why||
If you're going to this argument, then how can anyone be so high on Rich Rod? He is a 43-43 career coach that, save three seasons AFTER MIAMI (YTM), BC, AND VTech left the BigEast, didn't and does not have much of a track record of success.
Bottom line is that you cannot look at a candidate and say well, inferior competition, rabble rabble rabble...
If Hoke is the higher, I think it would be good for the University. If Miles is the hire, I think it would be good for the University. If Coker is the hire, I think it would be good for the University. You following me?
|4 years 16 weeks ago||UPDATE ON THE RUMOR||
The Ticket just reported that they talked to their sources at M and they make nothing of what is being reported, but, obviously, cannot dismiss it either. Some are thinking it is a tactic to get more public support and $ in negotiations.
Relax people, this big lead rumor is all pure conjecture.
(sorry to hijack the thread, I don't have enough MGOBLING to post my own topic!)

THIS is NSFW&H!!!!
|4 years 21 weeks ago||PURE SPECULATION||
OMG WHAT IF Thought:
Harbaugh is coming in town for the 85' team reunion. What if him and Brandon are meeting "in private" at that time. It's the perfect come in under cloak and darkness smokescreen scenario. It gives justification for Harbaugh to be here and it would provide a face to face discussion with the pimp hand himself.
This is how these OMG Rumors have made me feel as of late, though:
(yes, I also posted this on Brian's main page post in the comments section. Can't a man love playing with his otter?! Frankly, this makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside, thank you very much)
