Get over it and get off your high horse. Thanks.

06/23/2018 - 12:56am Get over yourself. He didn't…

Get over yourself. He didn't wreck anything. Ed Martin was the adult in the situation...blame him. Better yet, blame the NCAA for having these ass-backward rules in the first place. Let it go. The program is better than ever. He was a kid that made a mistake. He's a great dude and representative for the university. Constantly doing charity work and keeping to himself. Once again...get over yourself. Snobby fans like yourself really need to get off your high horse.

04/03/2018 - 12:33am Okay, so it's my dad's fault. 100%

Ya'll know Eddie Mush from The Bronx Tale? That's my dad. He's literally mushed every single team I've ever wanted to win anything. Remember when the Tigers were leading the Red Sox a few years ago in the playoffs. He was watching. The Pistons were once up 30 to Charlotte and ended up losing a few years ago, because he was watching. Red Wings in the 2008 finals, he was watching. Maybe the most damning evidence....he was watching the Kansas game. We were losing when he was watching. While Kansas was up in the last few minutes, he gave up and left. We locked him out of the basement where we were watching and the rest as we all know is history. These are just a few examples of many. The thing that pisses me off when he watches Michigan games is he's really not a Michigan fan. He doesn't watch Michigan basketball or football during the season. Just when there is postseason play or the OSU game at the end. He also cheers for Michigan State when Michigan is not in the postseason. It drives me insane and we will be forever cursed as long as he continues to act like a "fan." Rant over.

03/26/2018 - 8:05pm I'm not sure why there are so many that are thinking it's a scam

Former and current UM basketball players are promoting it. Could they really all be wrong? Maybe I'm naive.

03/25/2018 - 12:08am My dad tried to jinx it...

He's Eddie Mush from a Bronx Tale. Almost cost us...glad it didn't.

03/25/2018 - 12:01am Also ironic...

Because he freaked out on a Michigan alumna, Dana Jacobson.

02/23/2018 - 6:42am So happy that this is finally coming out...

As a fan of a clean program, seeing others get away with this crap for decades was so frustrating. Like a secret everyone knew, but noone bothered to stop. Doubtful that the NCAA will do much to their moneymaker programs, but I remain hopeful.

 

Side note:

 

 

02/19/2018 - 8:57pm So, totally unrelated, but you mentioned we should contact Magee

My brother contacted Magee, Dudek, Jay, Jim through email so far and has received absolutely no response as of yet. Not even a "no thanks we're good" email. I'm wondering who is likely to respond on the staff. We found an analytics analysts named Albert and was wondering if he'd be a good option. 

02/17/2018 - 10:46pm While I agree with many that this is a good to great hire...

It's very short-term. The guy isn't going to settle for less than a head coaching position. Meaning, if we do well offensively, I see him bouncing after next season.

02/13/2018 - 12:37am I approve of this comment.

.

02/08/2018 - 7:54pm That's the point.

Different coaches, different regimes, different methods, still a terrible line. I think the mentality or weight room regimine is not the same. I really don't know what it is. Something has changed since '07. Linemen don't even think of Michigan as an offensive line rich school anymore. 

02/08/2018 - 7:45pm You're mistaking negative for reality.

Who's to say there will be improvment or "development", when they are coached by the same people with the same methods?  Our line has been putrid for a decade.

02/08/2018 - 7:32pm I do think so.

I also think it may not matter, because he still won't have a line and they'll be coached up by the same "playcallers."

02/07/2018 - 10:49am .

02/07/2018 - 10:45am Did the on field results matter?

Of course, but I still think, had Harbaugh fired Pep, Dreveno and Dudek and made things simpler with the staff, that would have showed some fight. It would have showed some signs of life and recruits would have reacted positively. Harbaugh is gambling that these people will lead him to the promise land and boy he mistaken. Never thought that the Harbaugh era could end like the Hoke era did. I say could, but I really hope I'm wrong on this.

01/31/2018 - 10:18am Michigan should not be

Third or fourth at anything. Expect better from your program please and stop accepting mediocrity. We're getting left in the dust with the likes of OSU and even PSU on the trail. '18 class was a failure and the staff should shoulder the blame.

01/30/2018 - 10:47pm It's pretty simple.

Dudek is not equipped to handle the job at this level. Arizona does not equate to Michigan recruiting. Get rid of him, Drevno and Pep and you've got yourself a great start. Jim has been too slow or too stubborn to move on these actions though.

01/30/2018 - 10:39pm See, but now Jim set it up to fail

The bombing of the '18 recruiting class sets it up as to either the '17 class have to become superstars the next couple years, because they're getting little to no help from the '18 class or we are doomed. Big risk on Jim's part. Also, Jim's set it up where the risk may be bigger than the reward. Taking "diamond in the rough" and hoping a few pan out. I know we had a bad 2017 season, but I was not expecting the class to be this bad.

01/30/2018 - 10:05pm Shea is eligible or not...

I'm over the 2018 season. Hard schedule. Same coaches, same playcalling and same archiac system. See not much improvement for next year. Jim blew it this offseason. Big time.

01/28/2018 - 8:13pm If by chance he does flip to Georgia...

Would you guys doubting this giving recruits cars thing belive it's due to this or justify it as him being from GA/them having a good year?

01/25/2018 - 10:47pm Really don't care about Enos leaving...

More annoyed/pissed that Harbaugh is sitting on his hands regarding Drevno and Pep. Make a move dammit! Be decisive and be the leader we thought you were. Stop playing buddy buddy and do what's best for the program. Next year is another 8-5 year or worse if he keeps them on staff/doesn't change the play calling set up.

01/25/2018 - 10:43pm I actually want to see what McCaffery has ....

Don't care about his weight. Let him take the reigns and whatever happens happens. Skinny QB's play at a high level all over the country.

01/18/2018 - 11:13pm You already said this on your Twitter account.

We get it. Still a bad take.

01/18/2018 - 11:10pm Harbaugh looked like

a grandpa wanting to pass out cookies to his players on the sideline this year. I miss crazy Jim. Penalties and all.

01/14/2018 - 10:52am Not to thread jack

But it's 10:49 a.m. on a Sunday, two weeks after the SC game and Pep and Drevno are still on staff. 

01/13/2018 - 7:51pm Props to Beilein for adjusting...

His recruiting philosophy. Not a complete change, but the minor changes he's made have seemed to help tremendously. Also, he's seemed to hire some great assistants as our defense is very impressive this year. Dangerous this year, as well as next.

01/12/2018 - 11:56pm Pep and Drevno staying...

Enos the best we can do as possible OC. And we're relying on the slight chance Shea gets to play. Yeah, feeling none so good about next year, especially with that schedule. Harbaugh's juice on the sideline and with everything else...has seemed to disappear.

01/10/2018 - 12:11am I think in addition to this, fans should contact Warde.

Perhaps if he gets enough complaints, he'll address this (bad officiating in general/lack of consistency) at the next Big Ten meeting or something.

01/10/2018 - 12:00am I get what you're doing.

But, I feel like there are so many of these cheer up guys, at least there is always tomorrow threads on here. Let me sulk on my anger. I understand we have a very good team this year and hopefully we kick butt in the tournament, but I just can't turn a blind eye to the bad officiating. I'm going to sulk and complain. Give me time. Maybe that's just me.

01/09/2018 - 11:43pm It's called accountability.

Propose change to the current system. Get them to stop counting their billions and use some of that money to hire full-time refs. Implement a system where they get penalized for bad calls. It's not difficult. Things will continue if no one brings up the issue though.

01/09/2018 - 11:33pm The pros are outweighing the cons.

We should leave. Started as a joke, but I'm starting to take it more seriously with each hosejob.

01/09/2018 - 11:31pm .

The old man can't "retire" fast enough. Sick of this bullshit.

01/09/2018 - 11:28pm I'm sorry but when is a Big Ten AD gonna have the guts to say

Enough is enough. Preferably, Warde. I get we don't want a Dave Brandon showboat, but I didn't ask for this yes man shadowy figure either. He needs to speak up for his program that keeps getting screwed in both sports. Other Big Ten schools will most likely follow. It needs to be addressed.

01/08/2018 - 11:09am We're screwed.

If this is true and Pep and Drevno are staying. Plus, the Enos hire wasn't inspiring at all. I'm hoping Sam is wrong on this one. We'll see who we get as OC. Curse Harbaugh's stubbornness.

01/05/2018 - 2:05pm Drevno needs to be demoted or fired.

Anything less is a failure. Thinking you can pair him with someone and things will get fixed is dumb. Hopefully, that's not the route Harbaugh is taking.

01/05/2018 - 11:28am agree.

Had to forward through much of the podcast yesterday. Ira seems to ramble on a subject a lot. Great producer, not so good as a host.

01/04/2018 - 9:46am I will say this

Thanks for the updates. Much appreciated. This one has somehow calmed me more than your previous this week. Really hoping Harbaugh goes outside the box on the OC.

01/03/2018 - 9:50am Exactly.

I really hope Harbaugh's stubborness doesn't screw us again. They need to take their time. Research and throw money at the top qualified candidates. I don't want retreads and I don't want his coaching buddies. We have all the resources in the world. Pouch or hire the best. I'm over this search already. 

01/03/2018 - 9:36am Why is Harbaugh hiring a friend to replace a friend?

I'm sorry, I understand Roman has experience, but doing the same thing he did with Dreveno screams lazy and uninspired. Was hoping he'd do a Don Brown hire where he goes outside of his coaching buddies and comfort zone. Enos is terrible as well. Don't want a Spartan on staff. They only have one loyalty. Besides that, he's not a good coach. He's just a great recruiter. Many will not be happy with these names. Not just me. Hopefully someone talks him out of these hires.

01/02/2018 - 4:12pm I'm over the structure of the offensive staff.

We need to do away with this run game, pass game crap. Just get a proven, young, creative OC. Give him full control. Get a RB and WR coach and move Jay back to TE's coach. We were promised an offensive guru when he was hired. Never did I imagine that offense would be our trouble spot under his regime. So frustrating and partly due to Harbaugh's loyalty and bad hires. This could have been prevented. With the super weak class that '18 is, it's make or break time for Harbaugh. This offseason will be crucial to regain our momentum in the '18 season.

 

 

PS: I'll never trust a Buckeye or a Sparty to join the staff. This hire would be terrible on so many levels.

01/02/2018 - 3:20pm Any idea on the timeline?

Of when these changes will be announced?

12/29/2017 - 1:34pm Yup

Didn't find out till after. Seems solid.

12/29/2017 - 8:49am Ben seems like a random hire

Arkansas isn't particularly good. Haven't heard Ben's name nationally. A connection to the staff in some way prior?

12/26/2017 - 11:34pm Right on the money.

This is supposed to be a family. Family says and does stupid things at times. No reason to turn your back on them. I feel like Marcus did try to provide a different outlook and analysis most of the times. He did troll at times, but nothing out of hand. Sad that the fans drove one of their own to quit.

12/19/2017 - 1:32pm As noted above somewhere

He had his own account. Just didn't post frequently. Couldn't start a thread obviously. Don't see him doing so anymore either. He's over the board.

12/19/2017 - 1:30pm May I ask then how thousands of recruiters are doing this across

the country? Just because Michigan may not be doing it, doesn't mean others aren't.

12/19/2017 - 1:12pm He never said he knew more.

You guys are connecting dots that aren't there. Reread everything. He was simply asking why in the world we didn't even offer the kid. He doesn't go off rankings, he was simply making a point that there was a better player that was ranked lower on certain services. Again, he wasn't intending to be arrogant or narcissitic. He truly wants to help Michigan and was wondering what Michigan fans would think of this prospect. As far as the quarterback data. He has that data going back to 2007 actually. Again, I've told him to share it, but he's stubbornly refusing. You guys made it worse with your shunning and reaction to the post. Had there been genuine interest, perhaps he would have shared at least a screenshot or something.

12/19/2017 - 1:03pm He doesn't go based off film.

Many on this board do. Which is why, he attached the link to the video. Spreading information is arrogance and bragging. Only in the delusional Mgoworld. If you guys truly were just confused and wanted more info. Ask. If he says he can't divulge any further, then leave it alone. Again, it's really not a big deal.

12/19/2017 - 1:00pm I must be missing something?

The thread itself has nothing wrong with it. A bunch of grouchy old men apparently get upset if there is anything opposed to board groupthink. God forbid there be discussion on a forum.

12/19/2017 - 10:05am My brother frankly isn't budging on sharing the database.

He'll provide simplified stats to back up his answers, but isn't willing to provide a screenshot or any more details than that. If that's what you mean by arrogant and incomplete, then I'm sorry. He's not budging on that. He'll answer any questions though willingly, as long it doesn't have to do with sharing the database info.
