...how much longer are we going to bash the Lloyd years? I would have thought the crater that is now Michigan football - basically being Purdue for going on 6 years and 2 coaches now - would have added some perspective to the Lloyd haters. I mean, lots of people bashed Bo when he was the coach but could step back after a few years and realize we had it pretty good with him. Since Lloyd left we have had 5 seasons in 6 years that are worse than he had in his entire career. I would kill for those years again.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||This doesn't answer your question...||
so sorry. And I think you question is valid and answers to it are important. But the current system is so wronging the student athletes that I think the most important thing is to establish that it can't continue and then try to figure out how to make it work in a different way. I'm just so sick of the suggestion that there isn't a good answer for how to fix the problem so don't break the current system. The current way of doing things is classist and racist (I'm not saying it is intentionally racist but the current system disproportionately affects African Americans...so yeah, it's racist) and just cannot be something our University, or any university worth it's salt, should be involved in.
Might it ruin college sports as we know it? Sure. But that doesn't mean it doesn't need to stop. I love college sports infinitely more than pro sports. I'd hate to see it go. But as more and more money has poured in to college sports over the last few decades, the siuation has gotten disgusting.

Michigan sometimes plays in that Rose game you speak of? Man...I have a vague memory of something like that happening...but it's been so long I can't really remember.

Texas did something, right? Or did they do it with a weaker class. I honestly don't know.

7 years drawing an nfl pay check. My guess is he is already out performing his fellow late second roung picks historically and by the time his career is done he will have done so by miles.

One will get media, the other will get coaches. Book it.

Sorry that your post was the one I jumped on. Your post(s) were spot on and identified the sanctions as only part of the problem. Mea culpa. I was trying to respond more generally to the fact that we really dug this hole ourselves in terms of how we responded following the sanctions. I don't want to compare apples to oranges, because all sanctions are different and ours were no doubt severe, but when I watch something like OSU football suffer on the field for one year and then turn around and set fire to the conference, it just reminds me that too many Michigan fans, and people on this board in particular, overstate the impact of the sanctions. Tommy Turtleneck underachieved for what, 7 years? You can maybe blame the first two on the sanctions, but if Beezer (and I realize he is once on a generation talent but it still fits the point) took over back in 02 or whenever it was we would have been back much sooner and part of the ire toward the fab five would be lessened. At least I think it would.
But again, you are right I didn't digest that part if your post. Please accept an upvote as an apology.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||The sanctions didn't take away a decade of our program...||
...terrible coaching by Tommy did. We prolonged our pain by being bad at basketball. Don't act like the sanctions made us suck until the Beezer era...they helped early on, but really, Ellerbe and then Tommy just blew. You can't blame our "lost decade" on sanctions alone.
|24 weeks 6 hours ago||How old is older?||
The sanctions hit barely 10 years ago. By older do you mean 18 year olds?
|24 weeks 6 hours ago||The exception to the rule!||
Edit: I accidentally upvoted my own post. What happens now? I'm worried I just ripped a hole in the time-space continuum.
|24 weeks 6 hours ago||If you were||
under 5 when the fab five were on campus, you hate them because you view them as having ruined the basketball years you actually can remember. For those of us that are a bit older, it was glorious and we still love them, and can forgive Chris for the mistakes he made as a teenager. Obviously, there are exceptions to this. But it gets old to hear people that weren't even born when they played here trash them and suggest they shouldn't be welcomed back.

Kid could have gone anywhere in the country. And he picked us. If he had a good coach he would have made the league. Always felt bad for him.

borderline cockyness? Borderline? Kid is number two behind Harbaugh as all time cockyest player at Michigan. Not that I have a problem with either of them.
Whenever Fred goes, I want Wheatley.

Throws his assistants and players under the bus whenever he can (I'm not even reffering to Clowneygate) and has given HIMSELF game balls.

I've been wondering if it will be Rick or Bob Bland.
We'll miss you Big Jon.

The number 1 problem with RR was keeping GERG once it was clear he was the problem. We will see if Hoke goes down the same path with Borges. If Hoke gets rid of him, I'll believe that Hoke could still be the right hire.

And it's not bc of the price or the product on the field, but rather it is the vulgar negativity of the fans in the stands. I'm sick of being around it. It's one thing to swear in public. It's another thing to swear at kids in public. Another to swear at kids that are doing things you could never do yourself and doing it under pressure you can't fathom. And another thing to do all of the above while critiquing a game you don't understand. The good, smart fan has been replaced by drunken idiots.

Learn your history.
But we're going to win, so it's a moot point.

I got to the stadium a few hours early. Talked to Archie Griffin for 20 minutes and watched the stadium fill. And then, Biakabatuka.
