Coach Warinner Love In Thread

Submitted by UMProud on October 15th, 2018 at 4:12 PM

Dear Coach Warriner,

I don't know if you read this website but if you happen to stumble across this thread I, and I suspect, all of us Michigan FB fans, want to say thank you.  We appreciate your hard work, talents and for saying yes to become our Offensive Line coach.  Your work is highly noticeable and very appreciated. 

Thank you.

Based on what we're seeing, Michigan needs to do WHATEVER it takes to keep this guy as long as possible.  Getting our OL to an elite level is the last of the puzzle pieces to getting this team a B10 championship and in the CFP.

Can we chill with this? Did no one read the preview? Their D-line isnt all world. Im not saying he hasnt done great but the praise is a little over the top.


If he can get the C/G's to pick up twists next week I will start throwing out the L word.

There are number of factors helping on the field too.

Only 1 new starter on the Oline. Ruiz im counting as he started at guard last half/quarter of season. So all should be improved this year. Runyun def seems improved and Warinner deserves credit for that.

Wrs are improved. see the mass exodus of JR Wrs.

And Shea. A mobile QB. And good.

The praise is completely over the top until we look good against a fully armed opponent. We should find out the real answer this weekend.

Basically, in relative terms (from horrifying to solidly consistent/competent), he's been amazing.

But they got hammered in the only real test (ND). Sure, caveats apply to the 1st game in a new system, and improvement has been apparent, but we still don't know if they've risen to "real deal" status yet.

People here are myopic and jump on anyone who takes a remotely measured, objective view of situations like this, so enjoy the bashing you've received (and will receive).

"Thatvalone should make you rush the field to give that man a hug."

Oddly enough, my comment didn't directly refer to Warinner, who has done a great job by any objective measure. I'd shake his hand and say so if I had the opportunity.

I ain't hugging him, loving him, putting lipstick on his dick, or letting him fuck my sister. Y'alls are weird.

While I agree with this sentiment, I don't think the praise is entirely inappropriate. The inability to pick up a first down late in games when holding a lead has not only created perception issues (big games, rivals, ranked opponents, road struggles, etc.), but also kept this program from clearing that hurdle separating us from the elite (see 2016). One more first down in the 2015 MSU game, the 2016 Iowa game, and/or the 2016 OSU game, and this entire program is looked at very differently today.

Getting acceptable offensive-line play could turn out to be kind of a big deal for this program.

He's been amazing. I have no doubt, the line will keep getting better and better. Starting to feel pretty good about their ability to close out games.

Hard to believe these are the same guys from last year.  He’s figured out how to get the best out of them.  That’s good coaching.  He’s a keeper.
