Thanks. It's a little depressing that nearly the entirety of the trafficked college sports blog world is an SBNation production.

Not Dayne Crist the QB, Paul Chryst the current (ex) Wisconsin OC

Yes, perhaps Dayne Crist will go to Wisconsin. Paul Chryst probably won't be there with him.

This is pretty tangent to the point at hand, and I'm not much of a Tebow apologist, but the 3/16 is pretty misleading...there were at least 6 flat drops in there. He might not have been the reason they ultimately won (Marion Barber would like a word), but he wasn't nearly as incompetent as the numbers suggest.

Read the article or see my reply above. He made some bad life choices, ended up in jail for a while, but now has it together to the point where he's probably a viable, low level NFL prospect.

I went to HS with him and he didn't have it together in any way, ending up in prison for five years after an armed robbery. He got out and got it together and by all accounts has been in no trouble in the last 4 years so it's doubly shitty for him to lose the end of his senior season to some jackass who wanted to be macho.
While I wished him no luck or a pat on the back during the M game, he's the epitome of someone who turned their life around and for that should absolutely be commended.
Hopefully it wasn't serious enough to keep him out of their likely bowl game.

With all due respect, as a 25 year resident of DC, nobody here gives a hoot about UVA, and maybe like 39 people give a hoot about Maryland football, the juggernaut that they are. On Saturdays you see more Big 10 fans of all schools than anyone else by a country mile.

Is this not significantly different from residency? hone your craft while making beans/nothing during that period.

Good old Big Ten/SEC matchup featuring OSU and Villanova...good reporting here ESPN.

Attempting to contrast ourselves with Indiana might not be the best debating position here. They have been a model of consistency for some time...I'm not sure it much matters where their players are coming from if you are always good.

My two cents on JMFK:
I was back in Ann Arbor tailgating on Division just north of Hill St before one of the September games in 2009. This particular spot happens to have a lot of the team walking down the block between Central campus and the stadium in the hours before the game.
We're out by the street and I spotted an obvious player walking by judging by his warmup and bag, but I didn't recognize him. After shouting out to him what position he played and getting the response "Quarterback", I said back to him you must be Jack Kennedy. I don't think I've ever seen any athlete at any level as happy to be recognized as he was that day. (Though still not happy enough to accept our offer of beer...)
The end. Go Blue.

Let's say, for the sake of argument, that everything you've said here is in fact correct. What do you propose the solution be? Shall we start making every job everywhere exactly proportional to the racial mix of some population (because let's be honest, diversity only means race in most corners of this country)?
The University of Michigan Law School took a stroll down this road not too long ago, and you might recall what the Supreme Court thought about the idea.

Perhaps, but so would a staff of Buddhist monks from Tibet.
Coaching a top ten NFL defense is a great way to bridge the gap between old white guy and prospective college football player.

No I don't think that's what he said. How does this :
equal institutional racism? Best ____ possible regardless of skin color is the definition of race blind and merit based.

Does anyone give away playcalling specifics? I can't recall any coach, Michigan or otherwise, up and announcing what plays they plan on running and providing the accompanying X and O diagrams....

If we are regularly in BCS bowls again, that would be the time to worry about winning them, not now when we are as likely to not be in any bowl as we are a BCS bowl.
This is an instructive comment:
Brian might want to learn some balance from the pions down here. People need to realize that celebrating Hoke and what he might be able to accomplish around here is not akin to trashing RR, not akin to supporting the process that got us here, and not akin to being alright with the mafia that torpedoed RR. Supporting Hoke is 100% exclusive of each of the others, yet certain folks seems to think there is some inalienable and intrinsic connection.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Easy there rock star. You||
Easy there rock star. You think people are going to play Tresselball because the weather is great, the girls are great, and the state is great? I would argue that none of those make an elite program beyond making it a little easier to recruit. I'd posit that our standing as the all time winningest and close to if not the most storied program around, and with the exception of the RR years, still damn succssful lately (NC, nearly MNC berth, Heisman, several marquee bowl wins and 10 win seasons) does in fact make us elite.
|2 years 22 weeks ago||Just an fyi||
Carlos Rogers was/is a cornerback and probably not part of the offensive equation.
Jason Campbell on the other hand was the QB who was drafted first round by the Redskins. (coincidentally the same team that Rogers ended up on)

It would appear that Fort Schembechler is a better place for our team to live then out in the open. I have no intrinsic problem with openness, but the Detroit media and all of their irresponsible reporting does....seems but a small price to pay to keep the blood thirsty rosenwolves elsewhere.

The hypocrisy in these parts is dripping right now (the blog's, not yours).
The best way to make sure someone fails is to actively assume that they will before they even set foot on campus, and convince the minions that this is a fact. If the "Fire RR" people were bad for never giving him a chance, this whole "Brady Hoke Sucks, We Are Doomed" crowd isn't all that different.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||So you're saying we had a bad||
So you're saying we had a bad season, only slightly better (by this meausre) than SDSU under Brady Hoke. If we fired a coach with a better season, should we hire a coach coming off of a worse season?
And the coach/architect of the season in your post is not a candidate for the Michigan head coaching job.
