Like a fan that turns is back on his team because they don't follow the codes and specs HE think they should. No offense but I think they'll be fine without you. I hear theres room on that green piece of crap bandwagon. Grab your ski mask and hitch a ride.

I don't care if those doucheknuckles from the Jersey Shore were coaching Michigan, I could NEVER turn my back on this program.

Happy trails buddy

But I never understand this reaction from fans. Mattison didn't go to or play for U-M. I can see Lloyd getting pissed, but what fan wouldn't leave their job for more pay and free tuition for their kids? I mean, if you worked for Ford, and GM offered you a raise and to give all your kids free cars, you wouldn't take it?

Chuck Pagano is taking over for Mattison in Baltimore. I can tell you this: on the NFL level, the Ravens defensive players weren't really enamored with Mattison, but many of them had extreme loyalty to Rex Ryan and would have been disappointed with whomever ended up with the job in Baltimore. (My stepdad has worked for the Ravens/Browns since 1990 and I've been a ballboy for the Ravens for 9 years.)

I kind of wonder if he's going to bring Andy Moeller with him... just thinking aloud.

I'll call Mother down in headquarters to see what she has to say. 

 

Maybe this time I should invest in some safety goggles. National Signing Day looms.

...shit on anyone's Cheerios, but can someone tell me why this is such a great hire?  I'm talking from an X's and O's standpoint.  I know he was D Coordinator of the Ravens, but IT'S THE FREAKING RAVENS.  They were great before he got there.  Did he do anything scheme wise or was he just a caretaker of the defense?

I don't have a problem with the hire, but I was wondering if someone could shed some light on what he'll bring besides the immediate death to the 3-3-5.
