So according to a completely unfounded rumor on twitter Bob Stoops has been offered the Michigan job.

Is DB trying to make U of M look like a laughing stock?  Nobody wants this job so here's Brady.

This will be the worst recruiting class ever for Michigan and to think we had three of the top 70 players in the country, Dee, Frost, and Zettel, waiting to commit pending our coach.  Crawford's coach, Redhead, is saying the only chance we have with him is if we hire someone who was recruiting Dallas-LM.  Redhead was extremely pro Michigan, but hates DB's timeline as it gives the released coaches no chance of getting a job for next year.  Not to mention leaving one of his stars out in the cold.

Even if Miles is hired, Louisiana players aren't going to desert LSU for Michigan.  In all reality, Miles has a ton of talent coming back and is set for a possible run at the NC if he stays.  Not so much so if he comes here and there will be little help in 2012 as this year's recruiting class is rapidly becoming weaker.  With Fisher and Posada talking of looking elsewhere is it possible we only end up with one OLineman again this year?  That wouldn't bode well for the future.

Look, after 3-9, 5-7 and 7-6 seasons we all can understand that doom and gloom over not having the perfect coach immediately available after last Wednesday's RR firing has launched MGOBLOG into a state of utter panic.

However, little hard to predict what is going to happen until we actually get a coach.  Did anyone forsee the 3-9 and 5-7 seasons back when we hired RR in 2007/8?

That twitter account claims to be the official Michigan Football twitter, was created today, and the above was its second tweet. I shouldn't have posted and given credence to their rumor-mongering, but it was too tempting.

My apologies. Feel free to delete and punish me accordingly.

And that twitter message was based on a joke on an OU message board that Stoops would go to Michigan, I assume because he comes up in rumors for every major program with a coaching vacancy. So please, just neg me and delete the thread.

I'm in the Middle East for work and all I seem to be doing is refreshing the MGOblog app hoping for a modicum of actual news. What makes it worse is that I can only get a wifi signal in the bathroom of my hotel room. So I've had to spend an inordinate amount of time sitting on a toilet reading and rereading these boards. Somehow it all seems worth it. Please someone take the coaching job.

I'm not asking this rhetorically, so if someone has a thought, please respond. First there was the ND rumor and then the rumor about Michigan. Why would Stoops go anywhere? Oklahoma pays him well, he recruits really well, and the job has a great deal of tradition and prestige.

seeing the postings end at 2:30 am and promptly resume just before sunrise makes me feel much better for updating myself before i get dressed for work as if anything has changed since i hibernated the laptop and said my prayers at midnight (LORD, save our program)
