I'm with this guy. I mean I have seen it mentioned that he was done but was there any post about this or anything because I must have missed it.

It's unfathomable to me that 5 years of free schooling is no longer considered compensation. I suppose though, they aren't there to play school.
|1 week 5 days ago||That's exactly what it is.||
That's exactly what it is. The only way to moderate in any form has been to comment. I'm not a fan of negging just because you disagree with a simple opinion but at least with that, threads don't degrade to a pissing match between people, suck in more people, and become some sort of internet brawl with 50 useless comments. It was just a much cleaner way of saying either that you disagreed or that the comment was out of line.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||It was the best game I had||
It was the best game I had seen all year at the time. Then I watched Bama/Auburn and the ISU/WVU game and it became third.

He won 7 games in year three and was improving.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I highly doubt it. This||
I highly doubt it. This Michigan team is soft with the exception of McGary. Also, by the end of the year a loss to ISU isn't going to look very bad at all.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I saw that earlier. Palo||
I saw that earlier. Palo isn't on the team anymore either. Also, Dorsey-Walker probably won't play much if the first couple games are any indicator.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Well, I think ISU is close to||
Well, I think ISU is close to a top 25 team by the end of the year. It will be one of the toughest enviroments Michigan plays in so I expect it to be close throught. ISU basketball isn't even close to as bad as UCONN football.

Jason Whitlock's a shock jock who writes. He throws a bunch of crap at the wall, hides behind it being an opinion, but states it as fact. How does he know anything about Morris? He takes some shots at some kids (Lewan probably deserves his) and moves on hoping people like us click, and we do, and he gets a job at ESPN. I cna't hink of a piece he's written, I've read, and come away with a different opinion. They're all the same, replace names with other names, give your HARD TAKE and sit back and get clicks. He's a junk journalist, pretty awful evaluator of football considering he played, and mostly full of shit.
The thing that irritated me the most was him talking about Hoke forgoing character in recruiting. All empirical evidence rips apart that statement.

Turns out a large part of being a college coach is recruiting. Also, your point about the guys who play for him not being successful in college is actually in his favor isn't it? I mean, if they aren't successful NFL guys, he must have been doing something with them even the NFL guys can't.

ISU's defense is not Indiana's on average, anyway. Last week, it was. And Michigan's offense is not Baylor's, on average.
|9 weeks 9 hours ago||At some point in time I||
At some point in time I honestly expect to hear the words "decided schematic advantage" come out of his mouth. The guy sounds like Charlie Weis right now. He will not admit his failure and he refuses to look at how other teams counteract a loaded box when they don't have the line talent.
I'm an ISU fan as well. We have an awful offense as well though we do have less talent. The same struggles are happening on the line due to injury but as incompetant as our OC is, he has at least figured out that the way to counteract a bad line is not to bash into it. We run power to the outside, he's pulling all sort of linemen and throwing it outside as much as possible. The fact that a guy that coaching and fucking Michigan can't figure out easy ways to not only gain yards but change defenses is mind boggling. That alignment by Penn State is a slap in the face and if I were Borges I would be embarrassed and pissed of that a team shows that little respect for my intelligence by lining up with no one within 8 yards of my receivers.
The fact that he looks at a bubble screen as some pansy assed concept is grating. This isn't 1985. It isn't dick measuring contest to see who has the flatest forhead by the end of the game. This is modern day football which has chaged. Good lord the NFL throws bubble screens for crying out loud. Then you know what they do? They run bubble action and pop it over the top. It's not rocket science here and no, Borges, you are not smarter than everyone in the room. When you fail to acknowledge that you left yards out there on first downs, Heiko has you beat.
Sorry for my rant. I believe it's the cumulative effect of seeing my two teams sit in a wasteland of suck offensively when they should be undefeated if they had average offensive coordinators.
|12 weeks 6 hours ago||I'd like to know where the||
I'd like to know where the one error is on this play. I mean you covered the fact that it's a very difficult adjustment for Kerridge to get to the preffered hole with the slant so I'm not sure who made an error outside of the bounce/not bounce. I just think this is UCONNs DC calling a perfect slent on the perfect play. If they aren't slanting, Glasgow whoops his guy, Kerridge crushes the MLB, 52 is in the wash and it's Toussaint vs safeties. I just think this is one of those plays where you just say we got beat schematically.
|12 weeks 21 hours ago||I don't disagree with you but||
I don't disagree with you but Fitz had nothing except a backside cut, which on an option play is not an option. DG has to keep that especially since there is no one outside of that DE. The DE had turned and that should have been enough of a commitment to get that read right. Kerridge has no chance there with two guys and everything is doomed if Fitz gets the ball. Sure, it's the difference between 0 and -2 yards but there was nothing there after DG gave.

Being an ISU alum, I feel obligated to inform. These are throwbacks specifically tailored to a man named Jack Trice. Obviously, they play in Jack Trice stadium and it is the only D-1 stadium named after an African American. We are coming up on the 90th anniversary of his death which took place after a game in Minnesota. He was trampled by the MInnesota players and died days later from injuries sustained from that incident. It took 74 years to get his name on the stadium. I think the initial push was in the mid 70s but it never actually happened until 1997. We seem to like the uniforms as a fanbase but we did wish there wasn't the number rule because I think a gold small number like Michigan had would look better but the rules are the rules. I just thought I would jump in and give this some historical perspective. These aren't just for the hell of it and I think the University is really trying to push this because there is a significant story.

Yeah, who cares? No one. 9 teams in bowl games right? I think that's right. Yes, the top 6 of the SEC, year in and year out is untouchable, however beyond that, they are average. People also forget that Texas stood a good chance of defeating Bama until Colt McCoy was hurt. They still made that a game.

No, it's his. It has Michigan in the background as well. Definitely confusing.

How about if we read and comprehend. He said President, not coach.

What if he's better than Burke? Nevermind, my head just asploded.

Thanks. You're so helpful. I don't know what it would have mattered, you wouldn't have liked him anyway.

You have all kinds of awful idea.

If you go, take subs. You know why.

I think there's a misconception out there that Webber doesn't care. I think he cares. I also think there are some hard feelings with the University that make him want to just stay back and root privately for this team. I also think he's incredibly embarrassed. He's a smart guy. he made a decision when he was younger that I will gaurentee he thinks about every single day because he had part in essentially taking three successful years from the program not to mention the TO. If he shows up, great I guess but I don't expect it and I don't really blame him. I don't think it's something where he is trying to stick it to anyone.
|36 weeks 3 days ago||Well, it wasn't a charge.||
Well, it wasn't a charge. That same play has been called a charge all year but it's not. I'm glad it went this way but it's the wrong call and the NCAA needs to fix it. I'm with Bilas.
|36 weeks 5 days ago||Does anyone else think||
Does anyone else think Mattison sounds like Bill Walton at times. I've thought that every since he got here.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||Hanging the jersey isn't a||
Hanging the jersey isn't a question. Maybe retiring the number is but I think that's a yes too. He has all his individual achievments but he meant more to the program than just that. Hopefully his jersey would be the representation of a new era.
|38 weeks 2 days ago||The funny thing about the||
The funny thing about the Craft foul is that he wasn't even the first foul on the shot. That play was blown in three ways:
1. There was a foul before Craft was contacted
2. Craft wasn't even in position to take a charge
3. Craft's foot was over the circle.
Stellar job there in tking away at least 2 ISU points and probably 3. That completely changed the whole game. The ironic thing is that if you go back a month ago, ISU was screwed on a far more obvious call against Kansas in which a charge was not called when it was blatently obvious it should have been.

This is what we heard from the ISU side as well.
|39 weeks 4 days ago||They have lost twice since||
They have lost twice since Jan21. They have only lost to one unranked team (Nova). You could make a case they are one of the hottest teams in America. Michigan, to put it mildy, isn't just limping into the post season. They are in a wheelchair.
|40 weeks 3 days ago||In his defense our bigs||
In his defense our bigs couldn't play defense without fouling. Once everyone had 3 fould in the first half, he didn't have much choice. Besides, size isn't why we got outrebounded. Effort is why.
