It is pretty clear that he needs to go. He had a great job and did well, but part of maintaining the job is being a successful public representative for the University and the football program. You simply can not be identified with this kind of content and maintain this position. It is better to let him go now rather than have to defend continuing to employ him to people that will rightly never understand a decision to keep him. I think Gus Johnson would be great in the role as well.
|3 weeks 4 hours ago||no, second in the heisman vioting||
no, a big back of recent vintage, second in the heisman voting and an awesome running back who some "experts" thought would only be a fullback

For all any of you know Shallman could be the next Toby Gerhart.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||Awesome,||
just awesome. Enjoy the win, I always say. Shake it Tubby, shake it.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||Given how infrequently||
Given how infrequently Robinson gets to shoot, I would say he is a better three point shooter than Hardaway despite the %. It is a lot easier to shoot when you get as many shots as Hardaway versus the infrequest attempts Robinson gets. Robinson's production given the fact he is the fourth option and rarely has a play run for him is truly outstanding.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||GRIII is more athletic than||
GRIII is more athletic than Hardaway and a better outside shooter and finisher around the hoop. McGary's conditioning is suspect.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||slow down||
The jury is still out. We have seven of our nine most difficult regular season BIG games to play. We split the two tough BIG games we have played. We may be all that, but our rebounding and defense are not elite.

Isn't Tom Bergen in between Johnny Rob and Joel?

In Bo's first six years he rarely played ranked teams outside of Ohio and the Rose Bowl opponents. ND was not on the schedule and the Big Ten outside of Ohio was not strong at all. In those six years, Bo was 2-3-1 v. Ohio and 0-2 in the Rose Bowl. In those six years Bo did not have a bowl game in four seasons. When the scholarship limits came into effect, the team played ND every year, the Big Ten became more balanced and Bo had to play in a bowl game every year, the performance suffered. I think Carr's record is more impressive given the much tougher schedules, increase in games played, scholarship limits, a national championship and a bowl challenge each year.

The more I think about it, the more I wonder if post-football accomplishments or non-football accomplishments that reflect well on the University are a larger part of the decision on who gets honored. I don't know about the Wisterts, but Harmon was a war hero. Desmond's NFL career was pedestrian (notwithstanding a Super Bowl MVP), but he has been very successful and popular as a TV personality.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Ford not deserving either||
Ford was a decent football player on mostly poor Michigan teams. He clearly had his number retired for his political achievement of being selected president in the wake of the Watergate scandal. I don't think his number should have been retired. The celebrtion of players should be for what they did for Michigan on the field, not what they achieve in life following football. Otherwise, you might as well honor number 10 for Tom Brady.

NFL teams use a roster spot for this kind of player. If it was so easy to be outstanding at this task they wouldn't do so. He should make a difference with coverage on punts by snapping more quickly and accurately than a walk on and should help with field goal accuracy as well as reduce the possibility of blocked kicks and punts. Believe in the coaches. They know how important this position is for a football team.

Ohio's game before Michigan:
|1 year 4 weeks ago||why?||
The ACC is going down. Given there are going to be only four major conferences shouldn't they jump to one of them? Or should they let others take the spots and be left out of the party?
|1 year 4 weeks ago||sleepless nights||
Anyone think there are some sleepness nights these days for the AD's at Syracuse, BC, Pitt, NCST, Duke and Wake Forest? These schools seem to be in the most peril of losing when the music stops.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||not true||
They are only tied to the hip if VaTech has no option in the other three conferences. No reason they coudn't go to the SEC with Miami.
|1 year 4 weeks ago||academics and money||
UNC, MD, Duke and UVA to BIG. Academics and money rule. NC, MD and VA are growing states with big media markets.
|1 year 7 weeks ago||my playoff idea||
Here is how it would have worked in 2011:
Round One (December 10, 2011)
Round Two (December 17, 2011)
Round Three (semi-finals) New Year’s Day (January 2, 2012)
Round four (final game) 6-8 days following New Year’s Day
Bowl selection for most schools could be done in early December. Bowl invitation to tournament losers could be factored in. Losers of round two and three could be slotted into New Year’s weekend bowls.
Benefits of this system:
Includes all NCAA FBS schools (no mid-major whining allowed. ND and BYU and other independents have a chance to be included as wild card)
Makes the conference season all important. Maintains that which has been lost in basketball: an important regular season.
Keeps the chances of a non conference champion winning very low.
Allows bowls to continue with high quality of football.

Hmmm....adding Iggy and keeping Pop Evil is an option too....

I first went to a Michigan game in 1969-Bo's first game as coach- and was it a wild scene. The games I got to attend in the 70's also seemed like getting in on a big giant party. Man were people having fun. My Dad purchased season tickets in 1979 when I was in LSA and about the same time the games were first sold out on a season ticket basis. Many fans were in their 20's and 30's and it was still a giant party with people making noise and having a good time. Over the years these people kept their seats and the crowd aged and aged and aged. It became a quiet place and I often wondered why did I come to sit in an uncomfortable seat with a bunch of grumpy 40-60 yr olds listening to the MMB playing the same old, same old.
My Dad had to go in a nursing home in 2008 and couldn't make it to the stadium, so I quit going to M Stadium and went to the home to watch games with him. This year, I decided it might be fun to go to the Notre Dame game.
Man, what a difference. It was like going to a giant party again. Except this time the music fit the vibe. I am so happy the powers-that-be have updated the experience. MMB has their place, but I'm sure I'm not the only one that appreciates Pop Evil and the rawk music. I will guarantee you, 90,000 people would not have stayed for 30 minutes after the game without the music.

Let's not get too high on our horse fellas. As I recall we were the first University to market an offcial toilet seat repleat with a block M in maize and blue.
