People felt the same way when Drevno replaced Funk, given Drevno's track record at that point. Hell, as recently as last year people said the same about Frey. Until we get the talent, it's moot who the coach is. It's silly to not care whether a viable starter at a position of dire need comes here or not.

That's funny because the talent drevno inherited from hokes recruiting classes was the highest rated oline recruiting class in the country..

Funk either ruined them so they couldn't relearn anything or drevno sucked.

It looks like both things happened. Has nothing to do with getting talent we had enough. The coaches flat out sucked

A lot of Hoke's guys washed out or got injured (LTT, Bosch, Fox, etc) and most of the guys that remained only had one year with Drevno. Kugler was hurt for much of his career. Cole was good despite "awful" coaching. 

Hoke's late recruiting classes were awful for OL, with the one exception (Newsome) getting hurt. Harbaugh then proceeded to whiff on tackle after tackle prospect. 

Michigan absolutely has a talent issue at at least tackles, don't be ridiculous. It's ok to admit that, bad coaching and bad talent aren't mutually exclusive.

Bredeson was turned into a guard by necessity - no tackles in 2016

the 2017 guys will get their chance this year - how can you say they whiffed on those guys, unless your point is we whiffed on getting the recruit, then maybe, depending on how the 2017 guys turn out

Osu did some serious negative recruiting. Don't give to shits about Friday. Especially if he plays end because he couldn't hold Hutchinson's lunch and there is no telling what we have with the German. Frere going to osu hurts because they lost out on Carmin and where hurting for tackles. If Friday can't cut it at end he will be behind a lot of DT talent and may never see the field. Wouldn't that be justice.

I think Warriner will get our o-line going and hopefully we recruit backs that are not scared to block. We are loaded on the interior and have a beast in Rumler coming this year. I would guess we take four Tackles this year. It is so crucial to get this offense rolling for recruiting. Anyone choosing a big ten school other than Michigan playing defense is just stupid. Michigan will always have the top defense for quite a while. We are just a couple safety's away from one of the top defenses ever.

No idea if we get Anderson and don't even know if we need him. I think Hudson will be a stud and I think Newsome returns.

They went 7-6 and went to a bowl game in 2017. Those 6 losses included a 5-point loss to Oklahoma, a 3-point loss to USC, and a 3-point loss to Oklahoma State, all of whom finished in the top 14. And they were dealing with a coaching transition.

If 7-6 equals dogshit, then I don't know what descriptor should be used for the Rich Rodriguez years.

If you think Texas is putting more talent on the field than Michigan this year, well um your wrong. Texas will play a much easier schedule, but will not have a better team than Michigan. I guess you don't remember Maryland running all over them at their house. Just comparing a common opponent and it isn't even close.

Anderson is not even guaranteed to start at Michigan, but Texas yaaa.

7-6 IS absolute dog-shit for a program that generates the most revenue, has arguable the best facilities (biggest dick) and is the only 'main/elite' program in a top 2 recruiting state therefore getting the pick of the litter.  They should be in the playoffs every year.

25 years from now no one is going to say "They went 7-6 but that was a GREAT Texas team!".  They were dog-shit.

for any of the four schools. Since he stated this is purely a business decision you would think a year of grad school at UM or UT would at least get a mention. One nasty crack back block and you're working for Enterprise or selling insurance.

FYI - Calvin already has a degree from Rice (in some kind of engineering too I beleive). It makes perfect sense for him to put academics on hold and pursue the NFL. If it doesn't work out he can either fall back on his current degree or return to school and further his education. NFL or not, he is not going to end up selling insurance.

Should be an easy decision. Gets to go up against better defenses while playing on an experienced team that should compete for the conference and possibly more. If he's good enough, he's got "missing piece" potential. 

So of course he'll go to Texas.
