Why couldn't they just admit that they were wrong a couple of days ago instead of dragging this out? It's almost like Brandon can't stand not being in the press even if it's for negative things. See the scheduling of App State.
|12 hours 5 min ago||Our donors aren't going away||
Our donors aren't going away no matter who the AD is. We could have an uptick in the casual fan who gives 100 dollars if we're now going to use it to be good at sports and not flounder around like imbeciles.
|13 hours 17 min ago||The leadership is in the||
The leadership is in the regents and president. They can make us nationally relevant again with good hires starting with AD.
|13 hours 25 min ago||Yeah. still go to the games||
Yeah. still go to the games and still cheer. We need to clear house for both on field and off field improvements.
|13 hours 26 min ago||Does he have a buyout or can||
Does he have a buyout or can we can him for no penalty for messing up repeatedly.
|13 hours 39 min ago||Send emails to Schlissel and||
Send emails to Schlissel and the regents. I'm betting we are waiting to can Brandon until we find a relacement since we are in the middle of the season. I'd take Bates since he has had better hires than Manuel.
|13 hours 49 min ago||It's no wonder how bad our||
It's no wonder how bad our program's been when you have these clowns running it. I bet Brandon doesn't last another week.
|13 hours 52 min ago||The AD and head coach are||
The AD and head coach are going down in flames. This is unreal.
|13 hours 57 min ago||No way we hire a D2 coach. If||
No way we hire a D2 coach. If we don't get the Harbaughs, we'll take a hard look at Bielema, Mora, Sumlin, Butch Jones etc. and tell them to write down the amount they want to make.
|1 day 14 hours ago||Don't care if he throws his||
Don't care if he throws his headset on the ground and stomps on it like Bo or Saban or is a nice guy like Pete Carroll. As long as we win, I don't care. Don't care if he's a Michigan man or not. As long as he wins, I don't care.
|2 days 12 hours ago||If you pony up, you'll bring||
If you pony up, you'll bring in profits down the line. Alabama is making way more money post Saban than what they put into him. It hurts us more financially if we don't offer Harbaugh 6-7 million a year and we get some other no name coach and fans lose interest and stop buying apparel, tickets, etc. I just hope Schlissel isn't the anti-Brandon and allows athletics to be nationally relevant. We can be good at both athletics and academics at the same time.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Yes, but Michigan basketball||
Yes, but Michigan basketball could afford to take a chance on Beilein. At the time that he was hired, it could have gone either way. Michigan basketball has a lot less scrutiny than football and always will. Imagine if we hire hire a lesser name Beilein for football and it goes south.

Probably 3k.I would honestly do it too but my wife would be pissed.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Nuss had quite a bit of flair||
Nuss had quite a bit of flair at Washington with Keith Price and at MSU with Smoker/Stanton. Saban forced him to play the way he did at Alabama and Mccaron was a pretty effective QB.
|2 days 13 hours ago||November is the perfect month||
November is the perfect month for firings. If you fire him now, every coach like Urban Meyer, franklin etc. will be in our commits' ears. If we wait until after November/December to a hire coach then they won't have enough time to recruit.
|2 days 13 hours ago||In 2008 and 2009 Arizona was||
In 2008 and 2009 Arizona was 8-5. In 2009 they were 7-6. If they were 2-10 every year before RR I'd agree with you but they have held their own.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Nuss has had good offenses at||
Nuss has had good offenses at MSU, washington, and Alabama. He came into a really bad spot at Michigan.
|2 days 13 hours ago||First: Fire Brandon||
First: Fire Brandon immediately and replace him with someone who can actually close on hires and listens to Michigan fans.
Second: Wait to fire Hoke in Novemeber to save our current recruiting class the best we can.
Third: Offer the most money in CFB to Harbaugh or someone of his caliber. Go to Ross, Glick, Wilpon. We cannot mess up the next hire.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Yeah. I like Mattison but I||
Yeah. I like Mattison but I said whole staff because I figured he would have to go if we got a new HC. You never know though. Also, he might just retire. When he first signed up to be our DC, didn't he say he wanted to go for about 5 years? It's been 4.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Arizona went 8-5 in 2012 and||
Arizona went 8-5 in 2012 and 8-5 in 2013. This year, they have a 7 point win over Nevada, a 3 point win over UTSA, and a hail mary win over Cal. How is that impressive?
|2 days 13 hours ago||because they went 8-5 and 9-4||
because they went 8-5 and 9-4 and the 2012 season for them was a massive fluke as the Alabama game showed us. Their season consisted of teams shooting themselves in the foot when they played them.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Having watched Arizona games,||
Having watched Arizona games, they are not good or at least will never become an elite team. They may having a winning record and be 8-4 or something but they're never becoming Oregon or anything. They have some big problems on D.
|2 days 14 hours ago||If you're looking for blue||
If you're looking for blue blood perspectives, Texas/Oklahoma/USC in the 90s, Alabama/Nebraska in the early 2000s, Notre Dame 1995-present. Basically we just have to fire everyone in the program including the AD and the head coach. Bring in the biggest name possible by offering the largest salary in CFB if need be. It all starts with getting a brilliant AD who can recruit head coaches well. We are loaded in money in both the athletic department and the overall university as a whole. It's time we start using it to bring back Michigan. Go to Ross, Wilpon, Glick etc. if you have to in order to pay Harbaugh more than he makes at SF.
|2 days 14 hours ago||Since Bo called them Ohio||
Since Bo called them Ohio occasionally and that is what they are known by in central Ohio I am going to continue calling them that. It's not a Brady Hoke thing and it annoys the heck out of them for some reason.
|3 days 15 hours ago||Butch Jones is another guy||
Butch Jones is another guy who I think would fit great here but I want to see evidence that he's turning it around at Tennessee. Bielema is starting to make arkansas resemble Wisconsin and I think he would do well with Green, Smith, Isaac, and Weber.
|3 days 15 hours ago||I don't really like him but I||
I don't really like him but I like him more than Dantonio or Narduzzi. He has Midwestern ties to recruiting. He runs the same type of offense that Hoke is trying to install so we wouldn't have to deal with the square peg in the round hole situation. He hates Ohio and Urban Meyer and he wouldn't have to deal with the stress of the SEC west.
|3 days 16 hours ago||Proven guys: Non Michigan||
Non Michigan related: Bobby Petrino, Bret Bielema, Art Briles
Michigan related: Jim Harbaugh, John Harbaugh, Les Miles
|3 days 17 hours ago||The problem isn't in the||
The problem isn't in the style of offense. It's the fact that we can't block for anyone and our personnel. Remember when Nussmeier was suppose to come in and change the scheme and we'd be vastly better.
|4 days 15 hours ago||I think if our tickets were||
I think if our tickets were 50 dollars per game and we were 7-5 again this year we'd still sellout every game. Most of our fans have had tickets for decades and are unlikely to leave for any reason other than price. I know I wouldn't give up my tickets because of the way the team's playing.
|5 days 14 hours ago||We lose 3 people total on||
We lose 3 people total on defense and 2 people total on offense. That is pretty good.
