This has been discussed ad-nauseaum. I used to get angry at the Carr "apologists" when we would go 9-3 every year despite having 11-1 talent that tears it up in the NFL these days, (so I won't get into a long synopsis defending RR, the circumstances, and youth on the team) as I realize that ultimately you are judged on wins and losses. What i want to point out is the importance of continuity in a program and how while the last 3 years have sucked at times, looking at Oregon's coaching staff (with 4 assistant coaches tenured over 20 years) there is something to be said for stability. I'm sure any good coach that comes to Michigan and is given time for his system to get rooted will be successful given the resources, of course this is contingent upon fair support. I think we will win big and soon with either RR or Harbaugh, but I really just want to make a statement about RR leaving aside the "hot seat" issue. RR did not wake up a bad coach, he has won big before. RR does care about his players and there is a family atmosphere within the program, which is obvious from player quotes and his involvement with them off the field.
Spread is Dead?:
Gary Danielson, How do you have a job? Your opinion is like a blade of grass in the wind, or a house of cards potentialy folding over with every added layer. Oregon plays Auburn in the national title game Gary, two spread teams...one of which went through your SEC "Superior Excellent Conference" undefeated, beating pro-style Alabama on the road, climbing out of a 24-0 hole. During that game alone, I heard you change your tune, going from "why this will never work in the nfl" to "Cam Newton is Jesus in cleats, I wish I could touch his greatness from here (in a plutonic way of course)." Pick a story buddy, and stick to it. Better to be dead wrong than indecisive (just ask George W. Bush and John Kerry). You are an SEC lackey and its disgusting, but even beyond that, your spineless commentary makes us all dumber and more confused for having listened to you.
I hate everyone:
Going 1-9 vs. the Vest and 0-3 against the Brahs will do it to you. Should a football game mean that much to me, no....my sense of self probably shouldn't be so closely tied to games over which I have no control. That being said, you know your sporting fan life has hit a new low when you are up at 4AM watching youtube clips of the 95,96,and 97 Mich-OSU games. I will say one thing about those Mich teams that I don't see today (a carrot for all the RR haters out there), there was a toughness and resiliency to those teams that I haven't seen from Michigan in a long time. No matter the score, they always seemed to be in the game, focused and expecting to win. Nowadays, it feels like if we get down more that 7, the game is through. My anger is getting to the "Unacceptable" levels.
