|7 weeks 6 days ago||The Audible is a good podcast...||
but this is disappointing, I generally like Mandel and listen to this podcast every week, though Feldman's monotone voice gets on my nerves. I am acutally listening to the podcast now but have not gotten to the mailbag.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Larry Culpepper is hysterical||
Much prefer him to Pitbull. Agree with first post re podcast. Going to go through big withdrawal.
|17 weeks 22 hours ago||Playcalling||
Thought North Texas play calling last drive unusual. Go Army!

When was the last time a recruit decomitted from a school then recommitted later? Must be rare.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||Hoke's recruiting||
If Hoke's recruiting was so good, why was Harbaugh so unimpressed with his players? Did have a unique ability to identify 4 and 5 star talent that was really 3 start talent, or was it simply a player development issue?
|1 year 5 weeks ago||Sounds like his offensive||
Sounds like his offensive philosophy is the same as mine when I played sandlot football: everybody run and I will throw a bomb.
|1 year 33 weeks ago||Chesson||
Does Chesson have trouble tracking the long ball? Just seems to me that he has on several occasions, and it seemed like on one of the over throws that he gave up on the ball a little early.

I thought Mannion was a good QB for OSU
|1 year 46 weeks ago||It is amazing to me how||
It is amazing to me how little they know about Michigan football, and I would have to assume they know little about the other teams they cover. Is Morris really the key to a successful season? At this point I am not even sure he is going to start.

The "bubble boy" hands down. Come on ,take off your shirt!
|1 year 51 weeks ago||Geico commercials||
They aren't clever or funny. In fact, they are juvenile. I especially hate that annoying pig. Can't believe this is the best Madison Avenue can come up with.
|2 years 1 week ago||Quick question||
It seems that the first two round career lengths have been trending down the last few years. Is that because teams are getting less effective at identifying eleite talent (doubtful) or is it because there has been a change in the top position groups taken, position groups that have a generally shorter career.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Would love to know the||
Would love to know the difference between Hoke's and Harbaugh's practices. When Hoke started the practice reports stated how excited the players were, with Demens stating that it was the most fun he had at practices, that the amount of teaching was incredible. Wonder what is different with Harbaugh. Would love to get a player's perspective.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||I thought Herman hire was||
I thought Herman hire was great one for Houston. For some reason I am not sold on idea that Narduzzi will be successfulas HC but time will tell.
|2 years 19 weeks ago||He is my second choice after Harbaugh||
...for reasons outlined by Brian. He convinced me. Not sure why others think he would be a bad hire. Seems like Meyer is a terrific judge of coaching talent, and his former coaches have excellent track record as HC. Would also create a nostalgic buzz re Bo and Woody.

|2 years 28 weeks ago||What is intriguing about your||
What is intriguing about your comment is that it is obvious you think coaching staff is incompetent. Is that what you are hearing from players beyond what everyone else thinks?
|5 years 45 weeks ago||It is amazing how brave one||
It is amazing how brave one can be in anonymity. Just asking a question, that's all. I am not a troll and certainly not clueless. I brought this topic up b/c Brian linked to someone who speculated on that.
|5 years 51 weeks ago||Clemson||
Don't understand the point about Clemson.If they are doing better at player development than average, how are they a poorly coached team?
|6 years 8 weeks ago||I couldn't agree with you||
I couldn't agree with you more,especially in your comments about Denard, recruiting and his press conference. Sorry, but he does not strike me as a particularly astute football mind, and quite frankly I am getting tired of the "loves Michigan" and "toughness" themes. These to me are swipes at RR. I was very encouraged by the defensive hires but I am not impressed by Borges and where he wants to take the offense. I think we are going to regress further and only be competitive in teh Big Ten but not nationally. I still think Dan Mullen would have been the best hire,someone younger, more dynamic and more in-tune with where college football is headed.
|6 years 13 weeks ago||Most likeable is easily Mark||
Most likeable is easily Mark Richt who I think is one of the good guys. Best coach to me is Saban. I think Mullen is a nice combo of likeable and good and the man I wish was coaching Michigan.
|6 years 14 weeks ago||Thanks for the tip. I would||
Thanks for the tip. I would have simply e-mailed him directly if I had known.
|6 years 14 weeks ago||You get points for responding||
You get points for responding to posts. I never started a post. I know alot of this has been talked about.
|6 years 14 weeks ago||Doesn't seem to be over for||
Doesn't seem to be over for Brian as he still has alot to say about DB in regards to the way he handled the coaching hire.
|6 years 15 weeks ago||I am sorry if I am not||
I am sorry if I am not drinking the Kool aid yet. I really want Hoke to succeed but i wasn not as impressed as everyone else at his press conference. People criticzed RR for being inarticulate-Hoke to me was extremely inarticulate. He seemed to of course say all the right things but to me it was very scripted. I am also not impressed at the idea of Borges as coordinator. I am cautiosly pessimistic.
|6 years 15 weeks ago||RR firing||
I agreee completely. Initially I thought DB liked RR and the direction he was taking the program. Now I am wondering if he had every intention of firing him this year unless he did spectacularly well. He never gave him a vote of confidence. The fact that he hired someone who is going to take the program in a completely different direction only confirms my suspicion.
|6 years 16 weeks ago||Would anyone besdies me be||
Would anyone besdies me be disappointed if this is where he ends up? I could accept him landing at Clemson, but Maryland?
|6 years 17 weeks ago||What bothers me is that they||
What bothers me is that they wrote anything. If you don't have any solid information, you should say nothing. Cryptic messages only lead to alot of worthless speculation, which is what they claim to want to rebut but instead engender.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||If that were the case though,||
If that were the case though, don't you think he would have immediately dismissed RR after the OSU game in order to get the new team in place as quickly as possible, and don't you think that, if he had decided shortly after taking over as AD, that he would have made some contact with JH during the season and started the process then? I just think, on a credibility and ethical plane, that if he had decided he wants his man in place, that he would have told RR this earlier and allowed him to move on. Instead, RR is busting his tail trying to sell the Michigan program and get his players ready for a bowl game. There is something decpetive and distasteful about all of this if you are indeed correct. I also think the players, being young and impressionable, are going to be disgusted if they find out that DB made up his mind awhile back to fire RR but kept up a charade of indecision.
|6 years 17 weeks ago||cc:my interpretation of rivals||
I am a member of the Fort at rivals. My interpretation of ITF is that RR is most likely gone if DB can come to terms with JH. I also think that is how most are interpreting it. The Wolverine IMO tends to be anti-RR, for what it is worth. I personally find it hard to believe that DB has already made a decision to can RR. IMO he has a duty and obligation to tell the man most affected by this decision, that of course being RR. I also think that if he had made a decision that in this day and age it would be impossible to keep quiet.I tend to take him at his word and think he truly has not made up his mind. He probably also has a back-up plan in place if he decides after sitting down with RR and comes away unsatisfied with how RR is running program
