...says Denzel Valentine of Big Ten Tourney favorite MSU, which is 5-7 in its last 12 games. Cumong, man.

Vince Howard was unbelievable for East Dillon. I'm still upset Michigan couldn't pry him out of Texas.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||You could make the same claim||
You could make the same claim re: player development about anyone on staff during the Carroll years. They had a ton of 5* kids and a ton of success, so that naturally equals a lot of players drafted. He is a good recruiter and did play a part in bringing in that talent, but I know that the last two years at USC (2012 & 2013) he completely lost the team. I had friends on the team and they didn't just dislike the guy, they hated him and it wasn't isolated to them. The whole team hated his guts. Kiffen would be a terrible decision for Michigan right now.

Mike Norvell (ASU)
|9 weeks 3 days ago||No thanks. He doesn't work well with people.||
Lane did well for USC when he was surrounded by many other coaches as an assistant, but he lacks player development skills that are necessary for success at the college level. USC tanked the past two seasons prior to his firing because he was so unlikeable. His players at USC hated him and didn't start playing again until he was out. With so much development to do, he would be disastrous at Michigan.

Why do you think this would be a great hire? Besides his past two seasons at UCLA, Mazzone has been fired at every stop after 2-3 years. His resume reminds me a lot of Borges...
I'd be more interested in Mike Norvell from ASU than Mazzone.

Yes lots of teams do this now. I know the USC men's tennis team has done this in the past too.
Here's an article that was written on olympic teams training with the seals.

He tweeted his support for the team before the Syracuse game, so I don't think it's theoretical that he roots for Michigan.

Not true. Michigan has more NBA level talent.

Thank you! This is more funny and less offensive to me now.

While I'm fully enjoying OSU's implosion, I just don't feel great about mixing this in with a "Hello" post. This is a great recruit to land and it just feels wrong to use this as an opportunity to work in another OSU dig. Please let me know if I am missing something obvious.

Van Persie is a decent striker. Unfortunately he gets injured a lot.
What striker do you suggest they buy? There isn't a plethora of world-class strikers on the market (see Liverpool paying through the nose for Andy Carroll). Chamakh looked to be a good purchase this summer, but he never settled in the squad. As far as goal-keepers go, Szczesny is young and has been solid. Money would be much better spent adding some brutes to the midfield and on defense.

All Abramovich cares about is winning the champions league. Even if Chelsea won the premiership this year, I'm pretty sure Ancelotti would still be out.
|2 years 42 weeks ago||It's not choking when you||
It's not choking when you have a squad with significantly less depth. Arsenal wouldn't even compete with the likes of Man U, Chelsea and now Man City if not for Arsene Wenger. I'm not an Arsenal fan though, so I would love for Kroenke to fire him and watch them plummet out of the top 4.
|2 years 45 weeks ago||Oregon, Oregon State and||
Oregon, Oregon State and Washington regularly sell-out their stadiums. By comparison the Big Ten can probably depend on Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin to regularly sell-out. I agree that the Big Ten has more rabid fans, but it's not that lop-sided.

There is no nice way to say this - Locker does not even have average "smarts." Even the local Seattle media pretty much admit this.

It is a bit weird. Usually college coaching follows the Weekend at Bernies/ JoePa model with two younger coordinators propping up the head coach, but I don't think their age will hurt recruiting. In fact, nothing appeals to recruits more than a little werther's original.

The fear of Ray Lewis decapitating any recruit who dares to go elsewhere.
I get your larget point. GERG's resume minus Syracuse was strong and ticked some of the same boxes (DC at major college program and NFL), however this is the first time in a few weeks that I've felt optimistic about anything Michigan football related, so I'm going to go with that for now.

Rich Rod and Brian Clough both share an offensive philosophy in their respective sports, but beyond that they couldn't be more polar opposites. Clough was an alcoholic and egomaniac who never endeared himself at Leeds United because he was so outspoken and made a point to bad-mouth Don Revie and his players. I've never heard anything remotely negative that Rich Rod has said re: Michigan or Carr. Rich Rod strikes me as an earnest/ humble guy. While these are both cases of classic change management, IMO the parallels are limited.

+ 1 to help you on your way. If you do make it back to positive territory, I think a "Hello (Again): FuManBlue" post would be appropriate or at the very least a diary chronicling your adventures in Bolivia.

Nice to see Greg getting some recognition. I had the opportunity to work with Greg while at Michigan and he's someone I can honestly say changed my life and I think anyone who has spent some time with him would say the same. He makes you better on and off the field.
