Tolbert, more importantly, worked with Tommy Moffitt, considered to be "The Best" in the business currently, during his years at Miami, FL.
So he has worked with Moffitt, Gittelson, and Turley....that is a good resume.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Whittingham||
This information behing shared on Kyle Whittingham is somewhat incorrect. Whittingham was offered the Tennessee job in 2010 and turned it down, and Florida requested to interview him and he said no. So he is very much wanted by other programs, but as you did point out, his family is mormon and most likely he isn't leaving.

He is a hell of a coach. You don't win ten games at Duke (last year), and nine this year (easily could have been ten), and not be a damn good coach. He isn't leaving there though.

Congrats to Rich Rod, he did his job as a coach and recruited a good player.
I remember back to 2008, when Rich Rod had 6 NFL players on his defense (Jamison, Graham, Martin, Mouton, Trent, Brown), four of which have started in the NFL, and they were awful.
Glad he is having success in Zona, but unlike some here, I remember the Rich Rod who only beat Purdue and Illinois his final season here as we struggles to get to 7 wins. Anyone with a pulse beat us like a drum.

Excellent point on Singletary. He has long been rumored to be the mole for many.

There is a reason only front page info is shared by the mods on this site. You can't just let the inmates run the asylum and expect it to copestetic. That has been what's been happening at GBW for years. Several members who are self proclaimed insiders get to say whatever they want, have no actual sources, at least not any they have to cite, and anyone who questions the integrity of the post is banned. It is quite commical actually.

Danimal!!! What's up buddy, long time.
Good story, last week an actual former player questioned Beaver about claiming to have info about Lloyd undermining Rich Rod. Said he saw it with his own two eyes. The poster, who is a former player mind you, said funny thing is, I haven't seen you at any of the practices I was at when these supposed instances occured. What happened? Instant site ban.
Now his followers demand justice. Hilarious.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||The funny thing about all of||
The funny thing about all of this, is Tom has been living in Texas, California, and Oregon for the past ten years. Tom gets his second hand info from many of the so called insiders on his site (lifetimers who love self glorification by announcing they know someone in the program). Back in 2010 he actually banned one of the best information sharing posters on his board. Beaver claimed it was due to misinformation, turns out it was this guy witnessed Rich Rod dress down an equipment manager while at practice, and Beaver was scolded for letting that info reach subscribers.
It is also ironic considering Beaver went on a banning spree back in 2010 with the Rich Rod fallout.
This instance is no different. Beaver shares second hand info that is leeched onto by the members, and they end up sharing his posts on twitter, facebook, here, etc. Sam works closely with Michigan's athletic department, when misinformation is shared on Sams board, not Beavers, well you can imagine how ticked the athletic department gets. That is a pure guess, but pretty sure that is what is happening.
This is truly commical, most of the posters are pissed because they "want to be entertained" and don't want truthful information.

Please help me out here. I have been a member at scout for some years. Half of the info shared there, well the Beavers, is contradictory to what is often shared here. Has anyone at Mgoblog actually seen this guy at practices, pressers, in schimmy, etc? He has a lot of blowhards and I'd really like to know if he is even around the program. Comments?

There needs to be more excitement over this youngman. He is a guy that Michigan is most likely to pick up out of this group, and on the same stage was a man amongst boys when he played Cass Tech. I saw him three times this year, and he is very very good.

What is being lost in all of this, is that Casteel is just an above average DC.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Everywhere? You mean||
Everywhere? You mean Glennville State, wich he had 2 losing seasons, WVU where he had a losing season, and Michigan where he had two losing seasons. Meanwhile, 7 years removed from WVU, we are still waiting on a winning conference record for a Rich Rod coached team. Really just killing it.

Rich Rod didn't have to pay Barwise nearly 3/4 of a million dollars, and put a million in weight room renovations.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||That same whiz of defense||
That same whiz of defense gave up 54 to Cal this year, yes, Cal.
Rich Rod played in a piss poor big east, and lost 3 of his 4 games in his final two years at WVU to UNRANKED teams, including the biggest choke job in college football in his loss to Pitt.
He also was a PR nightmare while leaving WVU, then again at Michigan. Coincidence that asshole pisses off people and leaves town?
Stop with the, he is successful everywhere else...where is everywhere else? He has been a head coach at three places, GVSU, WVU, and Michigan, before Zone. He had 5 losing seasons at all three, so the guy is not elite. Zona has yet to have a winning conference record, lets pump the breaks.
Rich Rod sucks.

I've never seen a staff make so many adjustments in personnel so regularly throughout the season. We seem to play rotating chairs at several positions each year, and I just don't understand how you'll ever have continuity if you continue this trend.

I'm friends with the Riddell rep that does their reconditioning, warned me last year to buy the replica helmet then because Brady was doing away with that tone of yellow with the matalic flake, and returning them to original maize. Said entire uniform is going back to old school maize soon.

Lol, okay, the read option has been used since the 70s. Rich moved it to the gun. The nfl doesn't use rich rods read option concepts in the nfl. Maybe they use it as a package, but not as a base. Far from it.
It is Nobel to cheer for zona? Why? I cheer for Michigan

The run and shoot was used by Houston, later by duke under spurrier and eventually at Florida in the early 90s. Nice try though

By continual improvement are you really using his record to make your point? You mean getting obliterated by your rivals, having a losing conference record, having to out score average middle of the road big ten teams, and nearly getting your qbs killed yearly improvement, than I guess yes we improved. Good for rich rod that he is finding success again, it has only been since 2007 that he has had a winning conference record.
Let's not forget he had a falling out with his own alma mater and athletic department at wvu.

Rich rod invented the spread? Only in his own mind. Hell there are books dating back to the 1950s on spread formations, one by tcu coach in 1952. Spreads in the form of run and shoot were used in the 80s too. All rich rid did was add the read option to a gun formation.

Maybe Michigan opperates differently than where I worked, but Regents or BOD were only involved in hiring, not firing. That was the President and HR.

What does an athletic department runs its self mean?
His direct supervisor is responsible for his evaluation, and if he will be retained or not. That would be the President. I've never heard of Regents having to sign off of a non-renewal. That would be your human resources department. I've worked in college athletics, saw a football coach get fired, and it was the AD's decision with the support of the President. Now BOD or Regents were involved in anyway.
