There is a legitmate point to be made after the older fans trashed Rich Rod -- I already have older coworkers with the "next coach must be a Michigan Man" talk crap again.
|3 days 22 hours ago||If you truly are rational,||
If you truly are rational, you would recognize the following:
#1 MSU was talking "Little Brother" trash via the State News the week before the famous Hart game. Hart was specifically referencing MSU trash talk. That doesn't make Hart in the right, but to be whining about Hart specifically retaliating to trashtalk that MSU started in this instance nearly a decade after the fact seems silly.
Then Dantonio - the adult - paid millions to act like an adult goes to the national media and trash talks an individual player, instead of acting like an adult.
Does Dantonio reference his own player's pregame trashtalk in 2007 and say it is unacceptable? No, he just lowers himself to Hart's (a college kid's) level. What a petty prick.
How many other college coaches can you name that have trashtalked an individual player?
#2 MSU has had more egrigious incidents in recent memory - Gholston's neck twist, Conboy and Tropp, having more 15 yard penalties against UofM than any other team against any other opponent in the nation since Dantonio arrived in East Lansing.
The typical MSU fan cries bloody murder while looking the otherway at dangerous classless play.

Soft sort of like having a donut celebration pregame against Akron.

Gholston got a high five from a coach after the neck twist - which was essentially a turnover as it would have been 4th and long instead of 1st and 10 with the 15 yard penalty.
Although, I wish we wouldn't have planted the tent stake in the ground - some of the biggest Spartans crying bloody murder over it, were ignoring/justifying the MSU unclassy thug attitude that MSU exhibited with their what - 7 personal fouls that game.

Why does it feel like John L Smith is our head coach?
|5 days 7 hours ago||I think the spike - not a||
I think the spike - not a spear - was a "D-B" move and I wish they hadn't have done it as it is a "D-B" move, but is it really that big of a deal?
Nothing was hurt...not the stadium, not the turf, etc... The players are excited college kids trying to fire themselves up for a big game and did a dumb move that harmed......nothing. It would be nice if Hoke or the head "D-B" had enough awareness to have stopped the idiotic move.
How is it all together different than MSU players slapping the BBall court several times a game - including the Block M on occasion. They are firing themselves up, it literally hurt nothing, but can be seen as disrespectful.
P.S. In all honesty - the Green M on the Diag doesn't bother me much. It seems to be part of the rivalry. They paint our stuff, we paint their stuff. I didn't like the 2002 (I believe) F--k UM all over buildings in 4 foot letters though. Over the top.

LOL +1 for the Tressel firing Brandon bit.

I don't see the BigTen champ getting a playoff spot.
The SEC will likely get two spots. Notre Dame likely has one locked if they win out. FSU as the defending champ would be hard not to take unless they have 2 losses. Then the better Pac-12 and Big12 will likely have a champion held in higher regard by the committee.

With the way Brandon handles things I don't know if it is true, but the sideline reporter did in fact say that the UofM medical staff cleared Shane Morris to play.

There are at least 10 Rutgers players in the picture.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||I think the 1985 defense was||
I think the 1985 defense was better too. 1985 had 3 shutouts, 1988 had zero. The 1985 team averaged to allow 8.12 points per game and a max of 23 points, the1988 team averaged to allow 13.92 points per game and a max of 31 points twice.

Rich Rod deserved a 4th year.
Half the fan base and state of Michigan media never gave him a fair chance - that is why recruiting took a hit.

24th Michigan monument at Gettysburg for your personal image? Nice choice.

Kirk Herbstreit: "This is a bit of a witch hunt"it is about wins and losses.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||This "distraction to the||
This "distraction to the coaches" is a legitimate national story with real university ethics on the line. Do not forget that Brandon, Hoke, and the rest of the staff created this distraction themselves with how they handled the situation.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||The athletic department is||
The athletic department is not handling this situation appropriately. Time for the University to step in.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Even the stock market||
Even the stock market channels picked this story up today...we look pathetic...time for change.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||You have to fire Brandon||
You have to fire Brandon before you fire Hoke, because we can't have Brandon picking our next HC.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||If we had kept Rich Rod, we||
If we had kept Rich Rod, we would be in a better state than we are in today. The media in this state and half the fanbase never treated him fairly.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Hoke inherited a RichRod team||
Hoke inherited a RichRod team that had been improving...he then took that team and finished worse each succeeding year. Give Hoke more time and we will only get worse.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Keep Funk?!?!?! Whoever the||
Whoever the new coach is should keep whoever he wants, even if that is no one.

I think his schematic advantage is overrated.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Well he should be on our||
Well he should be on our short list to at least put feelers out to:
Anyone else that should be on it?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||How do you know he truly||
How do you know he truly hates Michigan? How do you know it isn't the "rivalry." I am sure some could have said that Bo hated Michigan back when he was an OSU assistant coach.
If we offered Narduzzi a mountain of cash, equivalent to 10 times his current salary, with a guaranteed payout and performance bonuses, he would have to at least consider it long and hard - after all does he have a family to take care of?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||The fan base treated Rich Rod||
The fan base treated Rich Rod poorly and the we can only hire a "Michigan Man" is low IQ, since we could have never hired Bo, Crisler, or Yost.
However, the wheels have fallen off and it is more than fair to make a change with Hoke in his 4th year with the team regressing each year...
|4 weeks 5 days ago||If I am not mistaken - he||
If I am not mistaken - he only has 1 year of head coaching experience...2-14 in an Arena League.
I would prefer someone with more coaching experience, even if not at the head coach level, like a Narduzzi.
I do like Spielman, but I want someone with more experience.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Craig Bohl is actually 2||
Craig Bohl is actually 2 years younger than Dantonio. He isn't that old at 56.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||So you are saying that we||
So on point #3 you are saying that we shouldn't have hired Bo?
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I would consider Narduzzi a||
I would consider Narduzzi a solid hire. The only down side is that he has zero head coaching experience. But, I think he could make a great head coach.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I don't enjoy saying this,||
I don't enjoy saying this, but shouldn't we look at Bielema... He is a proven head coach in our conference that did better than his recruiting would indicate. He is improving Arkansas and he runs an offense similar to the type of players we already have.
I wouldn't mind looking at Narduzzi either, except he lacks head coaching experience, which is a knock on him.
