But it would be a good start. Then they could get to work on dismantling the rest of the stadium.

I think Schiano is a trial balloon floated by a source. Same thing with Sam's various "I don't know anything but I'm just speculating" comments. Guys like Sam and JUB are smart, they have reputations to worry about, and they have access to the program at stake. Someone reliable is feeding them the tip of the day.
If I were trying to figure out public support for a variety of options, one way I'd handle it would be test reactions through venues like Mgoblog.
For the record, President Schlissel and Director Hackett, I hate the idea of Coach Schiano.

Nice analysis. I expect a long day given the relative capabilities of the teams and that OSU covets that outside chance at a playoff slot. Would be interesting to see though whether underestimation or let down ever played a role in any of those outcomes. Probably in1969.
I go back to about 1980 and I can't remember a one--given the rivalry's capacity to inspire over performance I guess there aren't many. That said, I'm really hoping they go into this game expecting a pushover. Maybe we can surprise them.

This article is BS. I try to never read anything in McPaper anyway, but there is no basis for his characterization of a chaotic AD and an indifferent president. If anything, I'd say both have demonstrated a good deal of concern (at least publicly--which is what most of us have to go on) about the future of the program and its leadership. This article amounts to journalistic trolling.

He said what I'd expect someone who has two big decisions ahead of him and only 25 days in the job to say. I'd be much more concerned if he came across as a loose cannon.
I'm satisfied that he will make the right decision on Hoke, given the program's lack of progress and the impending financial disaster that awaits with the status quo. In other words, if his affection for the program doesn't inspire him to make the right decision on the next coach, the program's economic prospects will.
This seems to me backed up by the latest chatter. I expect JUB and Sam are right on Hoke being gone, and JUB probably knows more than he's letting on when he laid out his prediction (a known name, no outsiders) on TKA on Thursday. I think Hackett has already made his decision and is working out the details now.

How do you know how he feels? I appreciate that it was his dream job and all but the bloom is off that rose now. Maybe he's just looking forward to relief that will come at the end of this ordeal. I know I am.

Don't remember it being much of a sports venue, but maybe it is. Food was good as I recall.

I lived in Zurich for 3 years and occasionally was able to get them to tune it in. Mr Pickwick's in Zug might do it too. It would almost have to be on ESPN America though, since that will be the only feed they'll be able to get.

my daughter, who is a freshman, and who couldn't care less about football, to go to the game just to cheer on Gardner and the rest of the seniors. And I sent her a copy of the article.
I really hope those kids get a sendoff worthy of their time, commitment, and love for the U-M.

Here in CO there's deer season, but it's nothing like MI. Then again, we have buffalo tenderloin, and I think this could be tailor made for it.

The MgoWife and I were there for Parents' Weekend with the MGoDaughter. Because we'd been overseas for 3 years, that was the first game we'd seen in person for a while. What a catastrophe: overthrown/underthrown receivers, blown assignments, the O-line play. You just don't have an appreciation for what a shitshow it is until you're there in person.
Thank God our daughter went there for the academics and she couldn't care less about football.

Was it for me. I guess if he'd won out the remainder of the season I'd have reconsidered. But 31-0 was the point where it was obvious that despite all the talent and strong recruiting classes, things weren't progressing, and hope that they would was misplaced.

Is generally in such good shape that I can obsessively check this blog for news of a change of our FB coach. At the moment I don't have a family member's bad diagnosis, financial catastrophe, or Visigoths, Vikings, Buckeyes, or other barbarians threatening to sack my town as concerns. When you put it in perspective, things are pretty good.

Will be (knock wood) great to have something positive to read and comment on. If I wanted pain like we've put up with lately I'd watch "Leaving Las Vegas" on continuous loop.

There's one thing no other place in the world can offer: The opportunity to make Michigan Michigan again. The opportunity to do for this era what Bo did in 1969.
Most of these guys making millions are already pretty high on Maslow's Ladder, and I think once you're there, things like reputation and legacy start to take new importance. I don't presume to know what's going on in JH's head, but I'd bet there's a pretty good chance that he'd trade that 10-20% upside to be one of the greats at his alma mater.

Of more convincing confirmation of the petty, chickenshit, vindictiveness of the outgoing administration.
Good for Bakes. Sunlight is a great disinfectant, and I sure hope the new admin is committed to a lot more transparency than the old one. This kind of "write what I want or else" extortion has no place at U-M.

Never intended the "Michigan Man" comment to exclude someone who was capable and utterly committed to the university. He only meant that someone who had accepted a position at Arizona State should not coach a Michigan team through the tournament. I saw the press conference live and I am confident in my assessment.
Somewhere, I'd like to think, that Bo is pissed off at this whole perversion of the "Michigan Man" expression. Were he here, I'm sure he'd let us all know himself. I'm equally sure he'd support hiring the best coach, who coaches within the rules, and who is 100% committed to Michigan, to come right the ship. That's what he did.
