He's not accountable to you.  He's accountable to his employer.

Exactly on point about lack of relevancy.  How many football games has Nick coached?  Did he even play the game?  There is no doubt something needs to change.  I trust Harbaugh can figure it out himself.

It's being reported we did offer him a two year extension and a pay raise.  Fuck him.

01/07/2019 - 1:35pm Well, if he was fired or…

Well, if he was fired or constructively fired, then I guess that's what we get.  I can't imagine that's true though.

Agree 100%.  This guy fucked us over once before, for which I had forgiven him.  If this is true, he can kiss my ass.

Is nobody moderating comments?

Need to quit blaming the coaches.  If we lose, the narrative should be about all the guys who quit on this team.  Including Solomon.  Can't take a bunch of starters and high quality backups off the team and expect them to be the same. To be clear, I'm not saying they didn't have a right to not play, but we obviously miss them.

Could the mods please ban this guy?

Lol, 10 points in 2 quarters is out of reach. Relax, dude, have another beer.

Does Dan Mullen remind anyone else of Cousin Eddie from Christmas Vacation?  Save the neck for me, Clark.

12/24/2018 - 2:28pm Michigan for Engineering. …

Michigan for Engineering.  If it was any of the liberal arts, it would be foolish to turn down an invitation from the Ivies, but Michigan is as good as it gets for Engineering in the minds of prospective employers.

James Earl Jones does not lie!

Props to Devin for attending and playing for Michigan.  What an awesome, exciting player!  Will be truly missed but always a Michigan Man in my book.  Best of luck in the NFL and beyond.

Agree 100%.  Simply making the point that there are a lot of reasons to play college football under the current value proposition.

Totally confused, Brian.  If getting paid is so important, why would Shea stay for another year?  Even if he's a mid-rounder, he still gets paid, right?  And he doesn't get paid at Michigan, or not near enough according to you, so why would he stay if the value proposition of a scholarship and playing at Michigan is so poor?

11/06/2018 - 6:01am Couldn't disagree more.

Couldn't disagree more.

Thank you OP, I agree.  Back before they filled every moment with sound, the crowd, and especially the student section, invented it's own chants and crazy cheers.  Now some sound engineer somewhere decides what we're doing.  Louder, but not better, IMO.

09/18/2018 - 11:07pm What the Wisconsin…

What the Wisconsin Chancellor said is exactly right.  Show me in any serious university's charter or mission statement where it addresses developing athletes.  The end of amateurism in college sports will be the end of many school's intercollegiate athletic programs.  But sure, go ahead and continue to beat the drum.

08/23/2018 - 2:37pm Tired of the self…

Tired of the self-righteousness and passing judgment on our competitors and their loathesomeness, if that's a word. Our University and athletic programs have made mistakes.  There's a whole rash of people who are still pissed about the Brendan Gibbons situation.  Judge not lest ye be judged.  OSU and MSU will be what they will be.  I'd rather focus internally on making sure Michigan is a Leader and Best.

07/05/2018 - 2:26pm Frankfort, MI.  Quiet hours…

Frankfort, MI.  Quiet hours begin at 11:00 pm, and enforced.  People have been going nuts all week with the fireworks until 11:00, then it's like someone flipped a switch and turned them off.  A great compromise.

06/26/2018 - 8:31am I used to play golf…

I used to play golf occasionally with George Johnson, a tackle on the 1947/8 national championship team.  George passed away a couple of years ago, but played golf well into his 90s.  I guess he was probably George Johnson I?

Not consistent with Dodge brand strategy.

Lol at broad characterizations with no factual support.

06/01/2018 - 11:41am Pacifica sells in plenty of

Pacifica sells in plenty of numbers, 62,000 to Waymo alone this year, but it is not consistent with the Dodge brand strategy and will not move there.

Marchionne was very clear. In the interest of time, they addressed only the brands that drive the lion's share of profit.

06/01/2018 - 9:10am First, it's not the halo

First, it's not the halo brand anymore. Second, I doubt it gets axed because there would be no place to put Pacifica. Fiat is not on the agenda, either, and they aren't going to axe Fiat, so not sure why people are jumping to conclusions.

05/29/2018 - 3:02pm Great question

Yes, I'm a bit analytical when it comes to buying cars. We just decided to off my wife's Jeep GC with the hemi, partly as a result of horrible fuel mileage, but we still need a vehicle that size. After looking at a variety of options including the PHEV Volvo XC90 and BMW eX5, we ended up with a BMW X5 35d diesel. 29 mpg on the highway, 650 mile range.

05/29/2018 - 2:37pm Agree that pricing sometimes

Agree that pricing sometimes varies widely. I almost always check GasBuddy before filling up. Great app.

I see you're keeping up with your Dividend Magazine reading. This changed years ago.

He can get his grad degree from Chicago. Go to M and enjoy an outstanding undergrad experience in Ann Arbor.

I see what you did there!

04/28/2018 - 5:28pm Believe what you want, but if

Believe what you want, but if the Lions had been contenders, I think both of those reasons would have become much less important.

FCA killed their sedans, repurposed manufacturing capacity, and added jobs.

If gas prices go up, what makes you think people won't still want little, economical SUVs and CUVs?

04/26/2018 - 4:48pm GM already announced they are

GM already announced they are killing the Sonic, and the Impala is rumored to be next.

04/26/2018 - 3:38pm I don't understand all the

I don't understand all the histrionics. They're just following the market, like GM and FCA have already done or announced. Just because it's not shaped like a car doesn't mean that it doesn't get good fuel economy or isn't environmentally friendly. I think most people these days just like the driving position and utility of a truck or SUV/CUV better than a sedan.

Please post a link to a game video replay if you know of one.  Checked this morning and found nothing.  Thanks.

My definition is someone who holds political office.

01/30/2018 - 4:19pm Your definition of politician

Your definition of politician is broader than mine. I had to register as a lobbyist once because my company was being screwed over by an overzealous tax examiner and I asked for help from my state representative. Am I a politician too?

01/30/2018 - 4:15pm I'm not opining on whether or

I'm not opining on whether or not he's a good candidate for the job, I'm just saying he's not a career politician. After he term limited as governor, he ran NAM, a trade association.

01/30/2018 - 2:53pm Nice sound bite, but Engler

Nice sound bite, but Engler actually is not a career politician, and hasn't held office in 15 years.

"I'm from Joisey, are you from Joisey?"

01/18/2018 - 1:00pm Different compensation for

Different compensation for different sports is illegal under Title IX, if it means the non-revenue women's basketball team gets less than the revenue men's basketball team. This is just an easy to understand example. There are many, many problems with the concept. Also your premise that "schools make money" on athletics is false. If they are well run athletic departments, the revenue sports pay for the non-revenue sports. Otherwise, the departments run at a loss subsidized by donors and the school.

01/17/2018 - 4:39pm Sorry, tell me again who is

Sorry, tell me again who is keeping the money? Is there some giant bank account somewhere that the nefarious NCAA keeps that I'm unaware of? And all this time I thought the money went to pay for all the non-revenue sports!

Ha! How about the guy who hired him?  It's not like RichRod made a hostile takeover of our football program!

By vetting you mean they're supposed to predict what he's going to allegedly do in the future?

01/04/2018 - 8:40pm You act like it's a final

You act like it's a final judgment, and not just a claim for damages.  Do you believe in due process?  I can almost guarantee this will be settled with no admission of guilt.  Will that also make you believe that it happened, or maybe that none of it happened?  Or maybe that there's some truth and some fabrication?  I can't believe how naive some people are.
