Looking vaguely senior-year-Chris-Perry good!

I'm glad everyone's being civil and grateful and we should be grateful, but this is a terrible year to do this. He won't be drafted in the first round and he won't have a guaranteed contract when there's no season to start the year next year. He's just lost millions of dollars if this is true. The decision has set back the program, but I don't blame him for that. I just blame him for what looks like a poor decision.
That said, good luck, Darius. I hope it works out for you in the short term. I know it will in the long term if you're willing to work at it and not be discouraged by the lost money.

that is completely legitimate. Clearly most people don't have the sense to realize that it is a valid issue to point out.

Insert WV joke here?

Because this was all the talk back in Bo's final years as coach.

worse than Rich Rods? After 3 years at MICHIGAN? I doubt it.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||oh, I finally get it||
Rich Rod was HUSTLING the Big Ten and the NCAA. Next year he was just going to PLAY DEFENSE, start caring two poops about Special Teams and then actually field a viable offense against GOOD teams and we were going to go 16-0 in a 14 game schedule (including the National Championship of course)! Yeah, that's why I'm depressed we have a coach who's actually going to try to win instead of trying to be right.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Sorry...||
With respect to:
Had Rich Rod won 2 (or even 1) game against Ohio St with a clearly inferior team (even if he didn't say "What's your deal?") he'd still be the coach. If only that had been...

the wave? Seriously? The wave is a testament to going to sporting events to be a part of a mob of people as opposed to actually watching and responding to a sporting event. Lame.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Huh? The new extension||
Huh? The new extension probably has a raise but in exchange a poison-pill buyout to leave for the Michigan job. He could still sign the contract if he wanted to coach there next year and leave after next season....

Right... cause the Superbowl is so antiquated...
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Playing Miles||
I've always thought this was actually the case. Martin wasn't a baffoon with Miles. He was being bombarded by the pro-Miles group including Dan Dierdorf and others who were going public. Then Miles was put in a position where he needed an answer and Martin made himself unavailable.
Again, I have no evidence nor am I claiming this is true, but no one has evidence that Martin was a moronic AD who forgot his cellphone and yet everyone seems to believe that's the case.
I think Martin's real screw up was overestimating how coaches view the Michigan job.
And I wonder what Desmond's real role was. Was he in the pro-Miles group and did he try to force Martin's hand or did he leak it to put Miles in a corner when Martin would be unavailable? And if that's the case was Herbie used by Desmond? Or did he agree to do it? Or was Desmond not his source? We'll likely never know...
