He had some academic issues, and I don't think his old high school coach was a very good influence on him. They were still very much in touch and the coach was saying a lot of negative things about the university in the media. I don't remember the details, it's been a while, but a google search should satisfy any curiosity you have.

Michigan - 112
After the game, Urb feigns heart problems and says something about missing his family and steps aside as HC only to miraculously change his mind on the following Monday after a "spirited practice" with a future murderer.
I can see it now, and it looks glorious.

Seth, in your OP you mention that you don't want to shell out the donation to get priority from the University for season tickets. That's totally understandable. I actually stopped doing that a few years ago, and now I buy my season tix off of ebay or craigslist before each season begins. It's a great way to save a lot of money as well as time and worry about finding tickets every week. Just my two cents.
|6 weeks 6 hours ago||If Ruddock isn't a game||
If Ruddock isn't a game manager then I don't know what that term means. "He's a good leader and he completes a lot of passes." Yeah, bubble screens and 10 yard outs and slants. He can't complete anything deeper than that with any consistency at all. I'd like to see the exact numbers, but his accuracy beyond the 10 yard range has to be abysmal. Fortunately, he seems to have stymied the turnover problem at this point, so with Rudock managing the games and not doing anything stupid, we have been able to rely on the defense to win games. The formula has been working great so far. God help us if we need Rudock's arm to win a game though.

While it was nice of Northwestern to send their field hockey team to the Big House last Saturday, State will surely pose a more serious threat this weekend. However, they're a run first team with an ailing offensive line which tips the scales into our favor.
Agreed that getting the run game going will be important for success, but also, the fact that there are 3 legit tight ends (Butt, Bunting and now Williams) who can catch the ball is a huge boon for the offense considering Ruddock's painful limitation when it comes to throwing the ball further than 10 yards with any semblance of accuracy. Those big TEs should prove essential in opening up the intermediate passing game this Saturday. I feel confident about our chances, cautious, but confident.

Remember when Florida State came to the Big House? It was probably 91 or 92 and they put a hurting on us, but the wave still went on. Honestly, it wasn't until the last 10 years or so that I began noticing the wave not taking place during games.

"The first time I saw the wave in the Big House was in 2009 against Delaware State."
What a noob.

71 yards rushing tonight. Smith runs like a grandma. Still, they cut out a couple of the turnovers and this may have been a win.

Well, to be fair, Schefter is a U of M guy as well. In fact, he started out as a sportswriter for the 'Daily' in college.

Harbaugh was in the conversation in 08. And they went after him hard after the RR debacle, when he turned them down flat. Now, the university is going after him yet again. It makes UM look desperate, and the whole thing is getting embarrassing. It reminds me of the nerd asking the popular girl to the prom over and over again.
And if they hire that putz Schiano, I will throw up.

That's quite an assemblage of middle-aged white guys. I wonder if any of them will ever actually coach at UM?
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Defense||
Well, they did make great halftime adjustments. They held KSU to only 1 real drive which ended in a FG. Their TD came after Morris' INT was returned inside the 10 yard line.
While the first half was a debacle, you can attribute some of that to the D being rusty after a month off and KSU having an excellent game plan. After Mattison saw what they were doing, he changed up the schemes and the D played brilliantly in the second half. He deserves credit for that.

I'll be there bright and early this Saturday just like I always am. And if the Big House is filled with red (as it always was throughout the Bump years), then shame on the fans. So it's been a ho-hum season, so what? Get over it, you crybabies.
Hoke's right about fickle fans. I remember when people were up in arms that an interim coach got the full time job (Carr). Then he won UM's first national title in 50 years, and everyone loved him. Then for the last 7 years or so of his career UM fans were calling for his head.
I think we all owe Hoke a chance here. After the attrocious RR years, Hoke actually beat State and OSU. He's only got one loss at the Big House, and this is only season 3. Give him some time. The season may have been a disappointment, but if these rumors about season ticket holders selling out on stubhub are true, that is just bush league. Win or lose, you go out and support the team.

It was the best special teams play I have ever seen. Just amazing. Dileo actually slid into the perfect position 7 yards behind the center. Gallon made a perfect toss to the ref who turned and tossed it to the other ref who ran and placed the ball. Everything just worked to perfection. Oh yeah, and Gibbons made a great clutch kick.
