When you think about it, it is a scary-looking trophy. I wouldn't want it around either, especially so close to Halloween.

Whatever works in the bedroom.

Plus we're only playing 10 players on special teams. Just imagine how much better we can be with the full 11!

I'm liking the idea of hiring him even more. It's possible that Michigan is too big time for a coordinator's first HC job, but many of the top HCs in the game right now were coordinators not 5 years ago, although circumstances vary. Hell, OU was Bob Stoops's first (and only, thus far) HC job after DCing. There's tremendous upside in trying. Seriously, if we can't get Jim Harbaugh, and we likely won't, looking at a coordinator, specifically OC, is the way to go.

First of all, they're only 3-4 right now (it's Buffalo, not Michigan). If they were already 2-5 or worse, then maybe, but they went 8-5 last year!
It's a little similar to FIU. A perennial mid-major doormat finally gets a year or more of unexpected success but has one bad season that is to be expected and decides to fire the coach. A key difference is that FIU fired the very guy who gave them the first taste of success (Cristobal) and UB did a premature midseason firing. And it's too bad too, because Cristobal was beginning to look like a rising star and now he's a position coach at Alabama. Yes this business demands results but these schools should keep their expectations in check.

He then went on to talk about how much he loves the wickedly talented Adele Dazeem.

A bit over the top, but relax, I was being facetious. The guy may even be a dick in person but he's obviously not evil.

4. Hiring Jim Harbaugh. #3 is the only item that won't require a miracle.

I think I have more appreciation for ISIS. And posting this as the man that Brandon fired coaches the #10 team in the country should make you ashamed of yourself.

You know it's bad when I dislike a product even more because it is associated with the athletic dept.
I was only half-sarcastic. The truth is that Chobani sucks. Other brands are so much better.

Thanks for saying it. Also don't forget that LSU has had some NCAA issues with him IIRC. I do think it bears mentioning that he had some success as coach at OkSU and beat OU a bunch of times.
|2 weeks 16 hours ago||Let us not forget that pretty||
Let us not forget that pretty much no one in the national media stood up for Rich Rod when he was at UM. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I recall no op-eds on espn.com saying that RR deserved more time. I mean, that's not really for ESPN to do as much as it is for local media, but they did a little goading (and yes, RR's results didn't help either). It's much easier now to shower praises on him.
Three and Out should be required reading for any Michigan fan. I agree that a big part of the problem with Michigan is Michigan. That includes Lloyd Carr.

This follows a series of tweets in which he told fans to save a piece of goalpost for him and Coach Freeze. He's been cool.
My only beef is that Ole Miss didn't approve of Admiral Akbar as its mascot.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Key differences||
Hoke doesn't have any former coaches or players working against him. Also RR knows how to coach and didn't have the same level of talent to work with, but I digress.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||This season||
Hoke's job coaching this season may go down as not just the worst in Michigan history, but possibly among the worst in CFB history. To have this much talent and to lose this badly each week is quite a feat, horrible officiating notwithstanding.
And happy new year, Seth.
|3 weeks 16 hours ago||Amen||
Check out my comment. In fact I mention that many if not most of the hottest coaches in the game right now were promoted from coordinator within the last 5 years.

Gus Malzahn is my wet dream hire but the man is a southerner with zero ties to the Midwest (unless I'm mistaken). And seriously, why would anyone like that want to come to UM after the hell we gave RR?

A big problem I have with Pinkel is his dirt. He got a DUI a few years ago but then again so did Jim Harbaugh. The bigger issue is that a lot of his players get arrested. Mizzou has done well in the Fulmer Cup. But mad respect to him for the job he's done at Mizzou and also for supporting Michael Sam when he came out.
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||Think coordinator||
Many of the most successful or hottest head coaches in CFB right now were offensive (mostly) or defensive coordinators not 5 years ago. It is important to note, however, that many of them followed a succession plan (or a failed one e.g. James Franklin), so pedigree and training are very important. I think ideal would be a guy who is being primed to be a HC and has Midwest ties. But hiring an assistant is done all the time in the NFL, although there is a smaller pool of established NFL coaches to hire from with only 32 teams. Going for a MAC coach just isn't working in most cases.
Unrelated to and going against my previous point, guys I was high on as possibilities were Craig Bohl and Chuck Martin. Even though Martin is coach at MU, he had something like a 40-game winning streak had GVSU.

...I agree. Read this article about a player named Sammy Maldonado if you haven't already. It's a long article, but it sheds light on the tight ship that Friedgen ran. I never liked how Maryland treated the Fridge in the end.

If if were up to me, Mark Snyder and Michael Rosenberg would be permanently banned from the city of Ann Arbor.

"I always figured it had some connection with Detroit and the auto industry."
That made me laugh.
"We just make as much noise as we can on third downs."
That made me die on the inside, because that's that's how it should be.

Michael Rosenberg writes for SI. That fact speaks for itself. In fact, he started writing for SI around the time that his "expose" of RR was published, and Brian Cook wrote that it was possibly all part of some coming out party for Rosenberg. SI is also probably jealous that Yahoo Sports broke some major scandals such at Miami and Oregon (did they also break Penn State?) and wants in. That the writer of the OSU article supposedly is a major OU fan is messed up.

I found the episode rather slow and filler-ish but it did have some important plot points e.g. we got to find out what happened to Morgan, Rick starts to regain some humanity, etc. I think they could have advanced the plot a little more. In the end, we have a character-centric episode about more than just a daytrip into town for supplies.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||But he's the 20th best coach in the country!||
According to Sporting News' ranking of FBS coaches, that is.
In any case that's how you lose a pipeline, whether the scholarship was pulled or the kid was deferred. Then again, it's not like Kiffin is universally loved by HS coaches in the first place. Redwhiteandmaize is right though--Kiffin still pulls in 5* recruits, and a ton of them.
