|3 years 17 weeks ago||He toiok money and maintained an office||
At the same time never came to practice or team and offered support or encouragement, his silence said all he wanted to say, the Team was dead to him. He lost my respect with his behavior and is now dead to me. I don't give two shits for him or RR, our coach is Brady Hoke. The previous 7 years sucked leave them where they lay and move on. Remember student atheletes only.
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Best of luck||
Our loss is Cinci gain, Family and friends are important and you seem to have thought this out. You have gone about this in a quiet and deliberate manner and have taken the course which will give you the best chance for peace and growth as a student athelete. We are not happy to see you go but are happy your timing was proper so you will not lose time. We will follow your career and best of luck to you. Go Blue

Not saying Izzo whines more than any two other coaches but he did have more court time than Nix.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Welcome||
Appreciate the west siders coming at there expense to get a look on the field, be pulling for you to be the next Jordon kovacs. Good Luck at The Best School Ever.
|3 years 18 weeks ago||Good lineman are the most difficult to rate||
Good lineman are the most difficult to rate for the next level, and with the generally high football IQ can play multiple positions we also need real depth in year two. I think we can take all three reeves and wright and be ok. Or one of them and grant.

You should have added Dantonios players to that list, one just hopes that the media is more diligent with them all in future years.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||Not||
Should have stuck, not undisputable evidence. Overcame some things this 132 has. We are very proud of you.

That family does not exist. Judas is his brother
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Nice||
Nice to let him have his day in the sun now the door can be closed on both regimes. Carr started strong got tired late and we slid, RR came in with a good idea but not for us and we slid hard.Both as most coaches are were stubborn and did not or could not change coordinators when needed. As a result like compound interest we were paying 60-75% then we filed chapter 7 and hired us a new sheriff. The rest is going to be like the 70s all over again. The additions of Penn State and Nebraska have been important 4 of the top 10 and when NBC runs out of cash and ND joins us giving us 5 of 10 All will bow to the Big 10. I know just let me be incredibly happy semi bourbaned up and dreaming my vision of CFB 2020. Thanks to all players especially you Mark , I work with Jim his dad , all you coaches, assistants,and you who give us this place to speak. Go Blue, Bob Ufer and Bo would be verrrrrrry proud.Thanks to all who have given of themselves Mo and your staff, Lloyd and your staff and Rich Rod and your staff
Time to place the buckeye back under covers, we have a winning record against the SEC and it will continue for the next two games after ohio.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||OOPS||
OOPS, sorry boss I will just clean out my desk now.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Glad you joined the Big 10||
Of course I am glad we were victorious today but it is our benefit as a conference you joined . You have such great tradition and fan base you have made us better. I am looking forward to a road trip. Four of the top ten in victories. Good luck in your next two games. I hope all of your visits to the Big House are memories of respectful competitors welcoming you to our community.
|3 years 28 weeks ago||One other definition||
Some of us who are fans, and not alumni, have Walmart in our holdings. I have earned plenty of dollars over the years through that company. This allows me to attend games at the Big House and buy my gear at the M Den. When I retire in 4yrs and 9 mo most of my money will still be coming from that store up the street from all of us and I will have a vest made to wear at the game so all will know who the walmart wolverine is Go Blue.
|3 years 29 weeks ago||Both needed to go||
Both Carr and Rodriguez were sick of their situation, different reasons, but sick just the same. Both needed to go and both are gone. Unless Hoke shows me differently he has my support, as did our last two coaches, until it was obvious that the corner had ben turned and could not be turned back. Both are good men who either stayed too long or couldn't adapt. Let us hope we are back to the days of Bo and Mo. Go Blue, Boilermakers for brunch.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Should win||
I agree, we will see if the staff has them prepared to take care of business against the teams we should beat. This is a trait missing for two regimes and it would be nice to see us back into the Bo and Mo level of preparedness.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Good news bad news||
Sorry you were injured good luck as you go forward with your rehab, we are looking forward to seeing you slap the banner.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Yost Quote||
The Quote gets me everytime. The book is on my must list and you are accurate in your opinion, we want the truth, it will improve the institution and the program in the end.

|3 years 30 weeks ago||Al Golden||
Al Golden just showed the difference between a builder of character and a coach who has always been about putting his best football players on the field. Dantonio has no interest in what happens to his players once they leave the program, the pro's or prison, they may leave MSU better players but they do not leave as better people.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Go Blue||
He would be a nice addition, we have had good results from OL from the Northwest, very blue collar people.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||Hope||
Hope it is treatable, thankful it was found. Best of wishes to you young man.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Plenty of reasons and plenty of blame to go around.||
As someone looking at the last 6 years, without the eye of a cheeleader, it is not hard to see the general decline whch led to the rumblings for a change in leadership. This book has put in print what I hear everyday in conversation with fellow fans. LC wanted his choices to be at the top of the list and we all know they had not earned consideration for this job. BM didn't seek help from the best minds out there and he could have, everyone has an opinion and wants to share it, if asked in the right way. So he butchered the search and ended up with RR. This didn't need to be a failure but it was from the start. He did not allow him to bring the whole staff, the DC would have made some difference, He also would have been smarter to have Don Nehlen come back to Michigan to announce the hiring and show the line of continuity, also Nehlen would have been a guy RR could have learned the " Michigan Way" from and helped him with Alumni dealings. RR was stubborn and failed to see the importance of the small things which make Michigan the Big Thing. Lastly Bo just passed to soon, this was his job to name and by God he is gone. It shows just how much we miss his quiet leadership .DB is trying to become the next Don Canham and that is why I give him latitude on some new ideas, hope his decisions prove to be as good as DC's. Face it we are what we are because of the combination of both BO and DC. Michigans most important Tradition has been it's willingness to change. The platoon system, the implementation of the forward pass, the building of the tailgating tradition. Soon and very soon we will reclaim our rightful position as one of the yearly top five and we will not cut corners to reach it. We will not sacrifice the student athalete for an athalete only, we will win the right way and be proud of our students on and off the field. GO BLUE Sorry for the grammatical and spelling errors, and if I offended am also sorry for that, just one mans opinion.

Encourage a visit and see his interest we still have 4-6 possible spot open depending on enrollment timing.

Very T O and Randy Moss of you Jim, Bo would be so proud of you.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||You dont punish what you teach you reward the success.||
There will be no penalty for dirty play from a team that failed to punish 18 players for ski masking before going to Rather Hall to put a beatdown on the Fraternity housed there. When 17% of a college team is involved in felonious assault and nothing happens it should tell us what he is trying to build, so the play today should not surprise. This one is over next year at our house, not sure what colors they will be wearing then but they will go home with a red ass/
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Dantonio crapped||
He always looks like he just crapped himself. All I can say right now is On Wisconsin will be my bye week menu.

|4 years 10 weeks ago||Good Day||
I met with a funeral director in Riverview Fl. today making arrangements for my father. The meeting was set up by my sister for 2;00 and I drove in from Michigan for it. He just so happened to be an alumni of Illinois. my final statement as I shook his hand to leave Go Blue. Then I made for a sports bar for the 2nd half. Tired but happy will miss watching the game with my dad.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||No politics and no religion||
First job 1970 pumping gas at the old Zephyr station. Big Harry, the owner gave these orders. Do not talk either politics or religion in my station, this is a place of business. That was good advice then and now. I always think of Mike Royko's article " Greed is what made America great" when I hear people attempt to parcel out reasons and responsibilites. Have a good Blue day as you celebrate a Mich victory over Illini

|4 years 11 weeks ago||Team Chemistry||
Players are always talking to each other coaching up and encouraging each other. That is what kept the team from tearing apart when things were not going well early in the season. The choice was made to help each other and the rewards are huge ,thank you to all on the team.
