"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

You can rage and rage and rage about something, expressing how you have been wronged beyond measure. It's easy to express your shock and outrage, but as the Slovin/Rubstein podcast suggests (especially 4:30 to 6:00), it might not hurt to delay judging Hoke (and some others) as a flaming lying liar who cannot be trusted to tell you what he ate for lunch, let alone a serious disciplinary matter that requires a great deal of confidentiality and privacy.

Have you seen or read Desmond's comments he made on espn regarding your performance and play-calling? Having not scored an offensive TD during regulation in two of the last three games, would you characterize those comments as fair?

with 2012 and 2013 than 2011. '11 had much better players left over from the late Carr era that were poorly coached under RichRod. '12 and to a less extent '13 is a combination of making due with RR's defensive recruits/players, and relying on early contributions from the young players. Make it through this season at 10-2ish, and U-M's defense will be dominant in 2014. Hell, it could be dominant when Jake Ryan returns.

Urbz would in all likelihood have had the authority to suspend him regardless if the number of tests he failed was 2 or 20. That's where a lack of accountability and preferential treatment of star players reflects on Urban.

"Everybody kills people, murders, steals from you, steals from me, whatever." Now maybe with these helpful signs in place "everybody" won't murder or steal. Ahh, what heights T. Pryor might have acheived has he had a reminder like this around when he was at Ohio.

I'm sure that he's a solid player, but he's listed as a 3 star on rivals and not rated by ESPN. In fairness Scout and 247 do list him as 4-star. Still, one player with widely varying recruting ratings doesn't sound like "stuff like this wasn't supposed to happen" territory.

I don't think we'll lose any games in which the offense scores 31 and 51, though. The defense will be much better than the 2000 version.

They are flirting with the possibilty of getting themselves booted from the NCAA if they keep this up.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||So, Urbs, what you're saying is ...||
you're going to install a new, flashy, high-octane style offense with personel that don't exactly fit it, in a traditionally defensive-minded league. If you go 3-9 this year (which I doubt but here's hoping), there just might be something to this Rich Rodriguez comparison that people are talking about.

it's akin to calling OSU Ohio, in my opinion. Not inaccurate but moderately irritating to the institution at which it is directed.

He would also project as an edge setting LB. The 2011 class (and Jake Ryan) look to be almost evenly split between tacklers--Poole, Morgan--and edge setters--Ryan, Beyer, and Clark. Adding Ojemudia, it looks like the 2012 class is primarily stocking up on tacklers as depth is strong on the edge. Given the experience from 2008-2010, any semblance of a defensive plan moving forward is promising. With Mattison calling that shots, I am very optimistic about our defensive prospects in the next 5 years.
