If you're interested in reading Dr. Saturday's latest thoughts on what we've been talking about non-stop for days now then go here.

The summary is basically what I've been thinking- putting OSU and UM in separate divisions will weaken The Game and gain the B10 almost nothing.

I'd be interested in other people's thoughts on this, especially well-explained contrarian points of view.

Fair, balanced, and honest, complete with quote from the Fearless Leader and Maize and Brew.

From the Hot Seat: Rich Rodriguez at the crossroads

I really just wanted to include this because Gillett gets in another money quote about Michigan football:

But "rocky transition" doesn't quite seem like an adequate description of the last two years. The transfer of power from Clinton to Bush in 2000 was a "rocky transition"; for the proud UM fan base, this has proven to be more like a waking nightmare. The Wolverines do not take coaching changes lightly – over the past century, there have been only two more Michigan coaches than popes(*) – but there's only so much a program can be expected to take.

* - In case you're wondering 11 coaches from 1910-2010, 9 popes 1910-2010, and if you're looking for a parallel, strictly from a time in office perspective, George Little (1924) is the John Paul I (1978) of this analogy.

28 players from your team depart in a year and a half like with Syracuse? Who did they bring in to replace GERG?!? I think having Carrot Top as a head coach would have been more successful.

Dr. Saturday's "Premature Assessment" of Michigan

Dr. Saturday's "Premature Assessment" of Michigan

Submitted by MH20 on July 13th, 2009 at 10:53 AM

Matt Hinton, AKA Dr. Saturday, released his "random, too-soon" look at the 2009 season on Friday. Most of his stuff is pretty good but I don't agree with it all. The o-line was not a total disaster; they were fairly competent in the run game. And I take some issue with his linking of a January post from Brian re: Greg Robinson becoming DC and the supposed fanbase-wide consternation. It's now July and GR has had 6 months to integrate himself into the program; I think the Doc should have looked for a more recent pulse reading.

Anyways, here it is:
