Timing is a bit of an issue, but if we retain DB, you can throw any home run hire, and especially Harbaugh or Miles, right out the window. No coach worth his salt will want DB sitting in on their film sessions, and with the way DB essentially abandoned Hoke to fend for himself during the Shane Morris press conference, why would any coach want to subject themselves to that kind of treatment from their own boss?

Before Mark Dantonio dame along, Michigan State was an annual tune-up game for Michigan. They were a second-tier program compared to Michigan, and I'm assuming that mindset went into many of the players who played for MSU over the years. It also likely made Michigan complacent towards how they played and thought about MSU. They knew they were going to beat MSU, so they cared very little for them, and perhaps viewed them as a rival in name only. With complacency, there came no real drive to beat MSU, which may perhaps explain why we'd be losing to them in several games before we realized they were beating us. We could simply out-talent them and win. I'm not in the locker room, but that mindset may still linger amongst our players.

Gardner's made his share of mistakes on the field, but the offensive woes are certainly not all his fault. Hard to make plays if the opposing D-Line is in your backfield immediately following the snap. I would've loved to see what he could do with a competent offensive line protecting him. The ND and OSU games last year show that he's got some serious game when he's on. Had we won the OSU game last year, him playing that game on a broken foot and leading the game-winning drive would've been the stuff of legend. Not to mention that the OSU schadenfreude of losing to a QB with a broken foot would've been glorious.
I don't foresee things getting much better for him this year, if at all, but I hope someone gives him a shot in the NFL. He's proven that he's got the potential to play the position extremely well. I'm just hoping there's a team willing to take a chance on him, coach him up, and see what he can do. Hopefully he can land somewhere behind a Manning, Brady, or Brees-like QB and learn from them.

If we wait that long to hire a new AD and football coach, unless you get a Harbaugh level coach that kids will just flock to in the final 2-3 weeks before NSD, there will be no recruiting class to speak of. All but maybe 2-3 guys could jump ship, and no one wants to come here when they don't know what coach there is or what scheme they will be playing under. You think the void left by the departed 2010 class was bad? This could be a whole lot worse. I just don't see us taking that long to institute change.

I'd feel,dirty bringing a rival coach into Michigan, but if he won football games, I'd stop caring and shut my mouth.

Either 2004 or 2007. I'm not an old timer so I don't know about many older games before the 2000s, mostly because this game has always been one-sided with one school or the other. But watching Sparty build a lead, and then have us come back and snatch it from them was just amazing. There are few more demoralizing ways to lose to a rival than to blow a lead like that.

I think this is the game where Sparty puts on a complete game after the last few weeks. Dantonio will refuse to allow his team to sleepwalk through one second of this game.

Have you seen this team play road games? I'd be shocked, almost impressed if we kept it within 2 touchdowns.

Eh I don't know about giving us that kind of credit. Purdue is at least showing improvement week to week. We, if anything, regress each week.

Believe me, I'm begging Hoke and Co. to prove me wrong. I'd love for them to make me eat my words. But I've seen absolutely nothing out of Michigan for me to think that this game will be anything other than a blowout.

I miss Brandon Graham. We haven't had anything remotely resembling a legitimate pass rush since he left.

That small? This game has the potential to get very, very ugly. Like 48-6 kind of ugly.

Seems fair, although I'd consider pegging Ole Miss ahead of FSU. I will give FSU credit for taking care of business last night, but Ole Miss just looks like the better team right now. They've performed consistently against good competition, and FSU largely hasn't.

MSU may be overrated, and their defense isn't what it was last year, but we've seen NOTHING out of Michigan to suggest that we have any chance of beating them on Saturday. The offense is still a mess, and the defense has zero playmakers. Dantonio will refuse to allow his team to sleepwalk through this game.
|2 days 17 hours ago||That's all well and good, but||
That's all well and good, but D-III is a far different animal than D-I. Can this guy handle the pressure of a big time school? Does he have any big time experience on any level at all? Coordinator? Position coach?
|2 days 18 hours ago||Were all the starters in the||
Were all the starters in the game? I don't know, I wasn't watching the game. But if they were, that could be a little douchey. But if you've got your 2nd and 3rd stringers in there, I don't see too much of an issue with this. What do you expect Meyer to do? Throw his backups in there and tell them to play nice? No, he wants to get them some playing time in game situations, and think about the fact that those backups are backups for a reason. They don't get to play much now, so when they do get the chance, they're going hard.

I loved watching ND lose, but it sure looked like they got hosed on that final call. Being able to convert on that 4th and 18 was just great execution on their part.

Even if ND wins tonight, they will get absolutely curb stomped by either MIss State or Ole Miss in the playoff. I'd reckon Bama would take them to the woodshed again too.

Jeremy Pruitt. We need to call this guy. His defense has put on an absolute clinic the past 2 weeks.

This is pure, utter domination by Georgia. Was not even remotely expecting this from them. Thought they'd take a huge step back after losing Gurley. They keep this up, they are very much in the playoff discussion.

So happy to see A&M getting put back it its place. Worked down in New Orleans this summer with a few people who go to school there and because of Manziel they think they walk on water.

Key word there is competent. We don't have anywhere close to a competent team. Unless State's entire 1st and 2nd teams come down with chronic diarrhea right before the game, expect them to absolutely roll and finally put together a complete game when we come to town next week.

While I'd generally agree with you, and Notre Dame doesn't have as many great athletes as FSU has, this game has another one of those 2012 feels to it and some BS Luck of the Irish moments will happen. Notre Dame is not a very good team, at least not #5 in the country good, but I feel like this is the kind of game where FSU would absolutely shit the bed and let them squeak by. And we've got to put up with at least several more weeks of hearing Lou Holtz tell the world how Notre Dame deserves to be the #1 team in America.

He'll never leave Georgia. He's been there 14 years and has had great success. It'd make zero sense for him to leave.
