draft position means quite a bit. He is not helping his cause this season.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Manning and Singletary||
The rest can leave.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Beat Ohio State!||
Hire a new coach while we are at it, but by all means Beat Ohio State!
|6 days 6 hours ago||Plus one long dead coach.||
You have to make the Yost of it.
|6 days 6 hours ago||Everyone has baggage - Some can coach football||
Miles would not be able to start a hostess, grade altering or drug ignorance scheme here. Michigan is miles away from the Oklahoma State of the mid 2000s. Miles has mellowed with his baggage as well. We could do much worse - Hoke, for example, is worse. Mike DeBord is worse. Harbaugh brings baggage as well. I'll take baggage at this point.
|6 days 18 hours ago||It was good...||
there are so many Michigan moments like that. It's what makes OSU such a big game. I will never forget that Iowa game. CFB is great in it's infamy as well as it's ecstasy.
|6 days 18 hours ago||Reader... Miles is a Michigan man||
Say what you want about him but he's maize and blue through and through. He's not going to come here to break the rules. He would come to enforce them. Give the guy a chance. I'm not saying he is coming but if he does please give him a chance before undermining him. Your attitude doesn't help IMO even at this stage.
Good god... we will be lucky to attract HS coaches at this rate. Bring on Faust.
|6 days 19 hours ago||Ace - you got the date wrong as well.||
Not that it matters.
|1 week 3 hours ago||Good god 71...||
I didn't neg this but come on ...Miles is a great get...live a little...don't fail from fear of failure...We've had enough of that.
|1 week 4 hours ago||Gut feelings from Bacon don't mean much at this point.||
His analysis of things past is value added...Rabacking the CC is not. Sam's gut on the other hand is connected to internal rumblings in the athletic department. I'm not convinced Sam even has connections to Hackett's process at this point.
|1 week 22 hours ago||I want the UFR to check my own opinions about the team...||
but Hoke doesn't inspire me to rewatch for OL development. I doubt Brian is feeling that motivated to produce for the same reason not at least until we get out of this Funk. That said OL development is huge for the next staff and for this team next year. UFR please.
|1 week 1 day ago||Serious?||
The UFR is not about what Hoke thinks rather it is about what fans think. I can't imagine fans are seriously listening to Hoke to shape their opinions on the performance of the players and team...not at this point at least.
Brian may be busy but it's ennui driving the lack of UFRs in my mind at least. Spending mulitple hours to ferret out OL performance is crazy thinking.
|1 week 1 day ago||If Ifs and buts were candy and nuts...||
Michigan would be a sweet 16 lock. The days are still bright, but I miss Horford for his presence. He was a great student and a model athlete at Mich. Now he is the same at Florida. Kind of odd to see him in that uniform.

Is that too much to ask?

It's the end of the trail for you.
|1 week 4 days ago||Does this make you feel better? Does this sentiment serve the||
victim here? You don't make things better by ostracism. Have you ever read The Color Purple. It's a pretty good read.
|2 weeks 35 min ago||He's making ~ 700K vs the NFL Avg of ~5 million per year||
He's the 60th highest paid QB in the NFL in his 4th year. He lost a year in his career sitting out at Arkansas where he was drafted in the 3rd round. Ryan could have beaten Minnesota and probably OSU to boot in RR's system which was hardly a spread under Nick Sheridan. He is Heiko's bubble maestro with that arm.
The year Ryan will be missing is going to be his last year - where he will finish in the top 5 QBs in the league in salary... so yeah it's working out badly for him. If you want to say 700K is what he should be paid in his 4th year given his bazooka calibre arm - I'd even say he isn't doing well now.
Ryan built his 3rd round selection with his off field antics. The Patriots and father time fixed that. He would have been better off under RR...again... in my opinion.
|2 weeks 2 hours ago||RR could have worked with Mallet||
He would have been in the NFL sooner and possibly would have made more over his career if he would have stayed. My opinion only here but that was a bad call on Ryan's part.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||This is specious - S&C is not an issue with our football program||
I appreciate the effort but ... let's be real. Playing a game of football is roughly equivalent to driving a car into a brick wall at 30 miles an hour. For the most part you are going to be OK but people get hurt.
Bosch's missed games have nothing to do with S&C but account for 14% of Michigan's reported injuries here by games missed. Steele's projections have nothing to do with reality. We are penalized for starting a freshman OT.
There is no accounting for the types of injury here either. You don't get turf toe or a high ankle sprain from lifting weights. The ability of S&C to ward off injury is not documented nor documentable without specifics. What exactly does Michigan do differently than other schools? Difference doesn't imply significance. There is no accounting for good years that this team has had wrt injury with the same S&C.
What is the % signify in %GM? There are 22 starts in every game (more if you count special teams.) Michigan had 6.5% games missed by dividing starts lost by games played??
If you break this down by individual injuries you will get a varied batch of particulars that can't be so nicely tossed in the coaching bucket. Knowing what I do about Michigan makes me think the rest of the B1G is just as specious.
Concussion gate, stretch gate, Barwis vs. Wellman methods... it doesn't add up to a conspiracy. Accountability starts and stops with the head coach.
There's more to say here... it's just not worth it. This analysis is wrong-headed.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||This is good IMO - what about Bosch?||
they can apply for an extra year for him right? That is a different process though I think. Can someone inform me on this?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||LMGTFY||
There's a myriad of programs out there. Try this one - Link.
Just kidding - don't hit that link. Seriously though... what's so hard to believe here? Athletes improve performance all the time? Granted - there are limits. OK go ahead hit that link.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Agree ...the allusion is a delusion ...||
Pithier literary analogies abound. To Kill a Mockingjay perhaps...the mix there would capture the relationships in this case. Muggles = muddled.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Those don't sell out...||
DB can see all the other sports without any issues.
|4 weeks 16 hours ago||This will change soon enough...||
please. To train all players with the same program is a crime. Is there any justification/theory for that?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||+1||
Yes sir! Can I have another?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||John U Bacon just said this||
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Double post - bonus picture says a thousand words||
That game has got to hurt. MSU beat him playing the type of football that he said he'd bring to Michigan.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Getting inside Hoke's head ...why he pulled Shane||
I think he was emotional and sentiment got the best of him. He knows he's screwed DG. He knows he's coached his last MSU game. The job of his dreams has slipped away from him due to his own incompetence. Devin is a great person - as all who have been around him can attest.
He changed his mind in a vulnerable moment. Bad decision but certainly not a game deciding one.
Hopefully we won't have to deal with this emotion going forward. It doesn't do the team any good.
