He might move back to DT where he played in 2009. I personally think he played better at DT that year than he did this year at DE.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||Next year||
I agree with you that there was a lot of criticism about RR getting 3 star prospects and at some point if we want to win the big ten we will need a lot more 4 and 5 star kids but this is different Hoke only had 3 weeks to recruit. Just getting the 21 spots they have open filled will be a challenge in RR first year he had a month and a half to recruit
|5 years 3 weeks ago||Mallett||
First I do think he is a good coach just not worth being the offensive coordinator of a top five football team. John Navarre had a good career at Michigan but also had 3 WR who now start in the NFL and Doak Walker award winner at RB. Henne in my opinion was his best coaching job but he did not fix Tebow mechanics and John Bentley (a 5 star recruit with 3 years to learn the offense) looked bad and how can you give him credit for Mallett who he coached for one season. I would love him as a QB coach or an offensive coordinator for a MAC/Big East school but he should not be an offensive coordinator for a top five team. Your argument for QBs in the NFL is like saying Greg Robinson is a great defensive coordinator because he coached 3 first round picks in his one year at Texas (Aaron Ross, Michael Huff, and Derrick Johnson)
|5 years 3 weeks ago||What has Loeffler done||
His claim to fame is working with Tom Brady at Michigan but you could argue that Tom under achieved at Michigan. He did a good job with Chad Henne but also was QB coach for the lions during a bad year in which Drew Stanton did not get better, he worked with Tebow during his worst of his last 3 years, and John Brantley who is a pro style QB looked really bad this year. I am not saying he is a bad coach but is he worthy of being an offensive coordinator at a power house program?
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Way to early||
It is way to early to make a call on next years Michigan team but I am not sure where he is getting the love for Iowa they lose 5 starter on offense including rick Stanzi, and six starters on Defense including future first round pick Adrian Clayborn and a great kicker in Ryan Donahue. They have three really good players in Mike Daniels, Marvin Mcnutt, and Riley Reiff but after that they have a huge drop off in talent.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Kyle Brindza||
Is there any chance that Brady Hoke focus on the state of Michigan gives them a chance at landing Kyle Brindza.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Troy Woolfolk||
I really think Michigan's Defense has played its best football when Troy is at FS (see the 2009 OSU, Western Michigan, MSU when cousin was not running for 3rd and 20 first downs) I am not saying they were world class performances but compared to the last couple of years they were ok performances and when he is playing FS the ball does not get thrown over our heads. I would think this is a move that should be considered.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Ferrara was a bad switch||
John Ferrara was getting playing time on the d-line as a RS freshmen (that line included Terrence Taylor, and Will Johnson who were soild players) 3 yard later he is not in the 2 deep on the o line I wish he would have stayed on the d-line.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Really happy to see this post||
I am really happy to see this post while I have been outspoken in my feeling about the direction of the program (and have lose a lot of points because of it). I am really happy to see this post because Rich Rod does seem like a nice guy and I think he does deeply care about his players. I wish him best of luck in the future.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||This is not a big deal||
There have been a lot of Glenville kids who have taken visits to Michigan (including Ted Ginn Jr) the problem is we have not gotten any of them. I don't have a problem with trying to get Glenville kids but Hoke's time might be better used trying to get the kids from St. Ignatius and St Edwards.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||How do they come up with these numbers||
San diego states kicker was 54/56 on extra points and 17/22 on field goals with a 53 yard long. There punter has a 45.4 yard average. There kick off guy has a 67.4 yard average(kicks it to the 3 yard line) and a 44 yard net (opponents start on the 26 yard line). It appear that there punt and kick return games are not good with a 6 and 19.3 yard average but does that cause you to be ranked 109?
|5 years 6 weeks ago||FYI||
After seeing how bad Michigan played today can people now call for Jim Harbaugh or Brady Hoke as coach without fear of having points taken away.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||No||
I will be sick of CC talk when we finally have a change and I do not have to watch the worst d in school history followed by and O that gets a ton of yards but can't score in the red zone and turns the ball over all the time.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||Less prove RR||
If you were going to hire Gus why not keep Rich they run the same style neither have defensive back grounds but RIch has won as a head coach at the college level so why would you hire an unproven coach after getting rid of a proven head coach with the same style
|5 years 10 weeks ago||Courtney Avery||
If you look at the history of True Freshment that have started at CB for us they have all gone on to have big careers
|5 years 10 weeks ago||Look at his class||
Jim is not just getting all of his recruits from California only 7 of his 21 commits are from California compared to the other in state schools this is low (12 of 16 for USC, 5 of 9 for UCLA, 4 of 10 for Cal, 17 of 19 for SDSU).
|5 years 11 weeks ago||harbaugh does not fix all the problems but||
Harbaugh does not fix all the problems but how can you recuit if kids won't have Confidence that they coach will be there long term and it is not the losing that is bothering me as much as we are not even competitive. Every team we played this year that will finished ranked we will have lose to by at least 10 points. My question to you would be what gives you confidence that we are going to make it to where we want to be given the last 3 years.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Why did he start the year as the back up||
If Gardner could not read defenses why did he start the year as the back up over Tate? Like everyone else I have not seen enough of Mike Cox to say he will be great but he is a fit in Harbaugh system and RR has had a track record of not always playing the best players right away (Mcguffie over Minor until the Penn St game, Roundtree not playing until half way through last year, Obi over Demens for a year and a half, Mike Williams being on the field at all last year). If we have injuries to the first three WR we have Odoms who has played a lot Jackson got so time this year.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||The O will have problems to start||
I agree the O will have problems to start the season we also play our first 5 games at home next year against Eastern Mich, Western Mich, Minn, ND, SDS (most likely dealing with a coaching change). I think even with the coaching change we will go 4-1 to start the season. Like I posted earlier Michigan State had a 3 game improvement in the first year from a spread to a pro style O (I don't think we will have a 3 game improvement).
|5 years 11 weeks ago||I think Denard can play QB||
I think Denard can play QB but not the way he does right now. He can't run the ball 25 times a game other wise you will see the same replay every time we play a good team (Denard gains a lot of yards, gets hurt, comes back in and has a hard time throwing the football). I am only saying that Michigan has less of a drop off between Denard and the back up QBs then there is between Denard and there running back therefore, if you want to have the best team it might include Denard at RB.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Because he made to many poor decisions||
First they return 10 starters on offense, 9 on Defense and all there special team guys. Most players get better with experience. Yes there offense is good and would be better with RR coming back but he keep Greg on to be a defensive coordinator of a defense (3-3-5) that he had never coached before, this from a guy who fired Erik Campbell one of the best WR coaches in the nation because he did not want to have to teach him the spread. Plus he kept Tony Gibson on as the DB coach when he had coached two pass defenses that finished in the hundreds while at WVU (104 in 2003, 109 in 2006). To me this shows a disregard for the defense. Plus he had a coaching position to fill before this season on defense and fills with a grad assistant who was named in an ncaa investigation. Harbaugh gets the LB coach from a really good NFL team and let him run his defense that is good coaching.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Michigan State||
In 2006 Michigan State ran a spread which scored a ton of points and gave up even more ( heard that stroy before) while finishing 4-8 the very next year switching to a pro style offense they finished 7-5. I don’t think we will have a three game improvement but I think an 8-4 record is a real possibility with them beating Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan, SDS (no Brady Hoke next year), Minnesota, Northwestern (Dan Persa will not be back), Purdue, Iowa (look at the roster they lose a ton of really good players), Illinois (Zook is still there head coach).
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Buy out||
Is DB waiting until after the bowl game to avoid paying the 4 million dollar buy out that would lower to 2.5 million after December.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||No||
Michigan just spent a ton of money to add extra suites to the stadium which did not sell out this year. Do you think your going to have people spending tons of money next year to watch a team that did not beat a team this year that will finish in the top 30. On top of getting blown out by the top three teams in the conference.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Stanford||
I will be watching the Stanford game tonight so I can see some real football it has been so long.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Big East Sucks||
As bad as our D is we held Uconn to ten points. There is no doubt that experence and coaching play a part in WVU having the 3-3-5 work for them but if they were in the big ten they would not be a top ten D.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||What if next year is to late||
I agree a lot of the problem with this program were out of RR control but if you wait until next year you might lose out on a chance to get a really special coach in Harbaugh. If RR is not fired after the game then they need to come out and let everyone know that he will in fact be the coach next year and not give a BS we will evaluate at the end of the season other wise we will get killed in recruiting.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Make him turn you down||
If Chris Petersen turns you down then that's fine but make him say no don't assume. Minnesota could double his pay (Glen Mason was making 2 million) and he might consider Minnesota if he wins all of his games this year and does not even play in a BCS game (6 conference champs, TCU (higher in BCS), OSU (draws big crowds), Stanford (keep rose bowl pac ten big ten), second SEC team (draws big crowds). Alabama did not say Nick Saban won't leave a good NFL job for a middle of the pack team in the best conference coming off probation and that has worked out well for them.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Big splash||
While I do think that Brady Hoke is a really good Coach I thought Minnesota was looking to make a splash with a big name head coach. I don't think the casual fan would even know who Brady Hoke is. If your Minnesota I would think your doing everything you can to pull Chris Peterson from Boise State he is a good coach and it makes a big splash.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Blocking||
If you can't block Rich Rod will take you out of the game (it's what happen to Fitz in the Purdue game) I hope he get some carries before he misses a block.
