I heard him and MSC did a threeway with Herve Villechaize on top of Moeller's desk back in the day.  Gross.

At the same time, I still don't think Miles is coming to Michigan or even being courted by Brandon.

If it involves another man's stapler I'm 100% with you.  Didn't know about that one.  Les "Swingline" Miles is unfit for the job.  I'm thinking Mary Sue "Bostich" Coleman should be given the boot too.

Geeze I had no idea it was so bad.

You are not DB or god for that matter to say if someone is morally fit somewhere. You do not know exactly what happened down there. There are two sides to every story. I am not a big fan of him, but if he is going to be our next coach then everyone needs to support him! Or we will be doing this again in another three years! No coach is going to succeed without everyone being unified! I find it unbelievable that some people do not understand that! The case with RR should tell everyone that we need to support the next coach. Michigan is a great university with a traditional football program, we are not an elite college football program right now. We have the resources to be one but right now we are not because we lack a coach and our fan base is divided. Some people need to get off their high horses and open up there eyes just a bit. Bo is not around anymore, this is not the BO, Moeller and lloyd era anymore and this "Michigan Man" term is going to kill me if I hear it one more time! If it is Les MIles or not let that person prove to be a Michigan Man!

Michigan to do well. This football program is something very passionate to me and the others on this board. I just find it very disturbing that this program is not being destroyed from the outside, but the inside. I just think these higher ups need to stop being selfish and put away personal agendas for the better of this program. Sorry about the exclamation points, but in my head I was yelling.

GO BLUE!

1) Don't apologize - you don't have anything to apologize for, and I wouldn't be worth it anyway.

2) More problematic (in my humble, irrelevant, opinion) than the exclamation points is the fact that you used quite a few words to say a series of very trite, banal things that amounted to saying almost nothing at all.

It takes some real balls to call anyone "morally unfit" to coach or do any job. I hope you all live in titanium houses. Yes, if what the ex-LSU player in the video says is true- IF- that is poor behavior and nothing I want happening should Miles come here. But I would never presume that just because something is on ESPN that their version of the story is the correct one. Apparently some of you do. And have no problem blasting the character of a guy you don't know. Interesting fan base we have here.

And FWIW, the former LSU AD had this to add about Les (sorry if you've seen this posted a thousand times already):

“He has a lot of morality, you don’t find it in many people, let alone many coaches. He won’t try to make more money by pretending that he wants to go to Michigan. That’s extraordinarily rare. I was an AD for a long time. Some coaches they really don’t want to go, but pretend they do.

“He’s a classy guy, a wonderful guy, a great father and a great community member. Yeah, sure he could be a good coach at Michigan, but I don’t think so.”

Yea, I know, consider the source...but I'll concede that this "source" knows a hell of a lot more about the person he's talking about than any of us do huddled in front of our computers thousands of miles away.  Just sayin'

I support Les Miles already.  I also think it would be super cool to have a coach with his insatiable sexual appetite and lack of regard for the safety of himself and others during his attempts to satisfy that unquenchable desire for depravity.

Also would be cool if he banged Tressel's wife and told everybody about it (i.e. told me so I could anonymously post it on the internet).

Actually, the coach is deciding for your 18 year old kid. Did you see how Les had a meeting with one of kids 11 days after his letter was sent out? That means 11 days earlier he already knew the kid had his scholarship revoked and in the meeting, Mr. Miles said nothing of the sort and it was business as usual. I don't know about you, but that is a dick move.

 That being said, if I'm within the rules I don't question what I'm doing.

That is not morality at all.  That is just obeying rules or laws, and rules and laws are often constructed to benefit the constructor, and not from any moral basis.  You really should question what you're doing, even if what you're doing falls within the boundary of rules and laws.  Think civil disobedience for the greater good of humanity.  I mean, come on, won't anyone think of the civil disobedience?  We are not sheeple here.  We are people here.

He won't do it at UM because he can't.  Seriously, Miles is one of the best people we could bring in at the moment.  Everyone keeps saying we need a coach to unite the fan base, he is the most realistic option and will get us as close to reuniting as possible.  I just don't get why we as so picky, I feel like our elitism is spreading to the board and no one we hire will be good enough.
