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

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.

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.

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.

I'm curious did you ever see the documentary "who killed the electric car?" focusing on the GM EV1. They seemed to come to the conclusion that it was a combination of california consumers, car companies unwilling to really go "all in" on the product marketing and eventually Dick Cheney and the US Government who all conspired to kill it. Anyhow, definitely an aside although parallels to M football exist.

As a general rule, I don't like past players saying negative things about the current players and/ or coach. If this was on his personal facebook, it's a bit different but privacy isn't what it used to be and you should be aware.
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Thanks||
Your comment made me laugh on an otherwise difficult day. IOU +1 when we return to normalcy
|2 years 18 weeks ago||Who killed the electric car?||
I remember reading a good diary before the OSU game comparing portions of the Michigan fanbase clinging to the past and the idea of the Michigan man/ cloud of dust Bo ball with the Detroit auto industry's unwillingness to change. For me, this is a case of "who killed the electric car?" RR's product at Michigan was far from perfect or complete, but it was the future. By the bowl game I accepted that RR was on his way out and I was ok with a new coach coming in provided he was familiar enough with the spread to make the most of our current players and enough of a name/ reputation to salvage this recruiting class. All was not lost and the past 3 years of rebuilding and 7 straight OSU losses were not for nothing. The decision to hire Hoke today firmly puts Michigan on a depressingly regressive track. Instead of staying the course or at least finding a happy medium we are going back into a past that wasn't half as great as we remember. I think we just went "all in" on the SUV.

I think he's trying to get off on a technicality. I'm sure he discussed a lot of hypotheticals with LM and JH.
