GMAT only went to ND b/c his son wanted to go to ND and they offered to pay his tuition if his dad came with. Don't know that he would have left otherwise. I do remember him saying this would be his last gig and now the timing is right. Will probably retire within a week or so.

11/14/2013 - 7:58am a pic of me if he does not go Blue

11/03/2013 - 10:33am Lets keep in mind what Hoke

Lets keep in mind what Hoke did with the last of the class that Carr recruited. RR was the worst hire we could have made and in my opinion and we are still feeling the effects. RR had no idea how to recruit lineman. The o line play was horrible and has been for 2 years now.

10/31/2013 - 2:23pm I still think that Dantonio

I still think that Dantonio is riding the wave of recruiting success that RR caused. When Carr recruited Michigan it was for two reasons, one was because of a belief that local boys would play harder because they grew up watching, and rooting for the wolverines, but he also knew that if they were playing for Michigan they weren't playing for Sparty or the Bucks. RR never got that and so a lot of kids that are now juniors and seniors on that team are on that team because RR never offered them. Granted kids like Gholston and Cousins were never going to go to Michigan because they grew up hating us but I would venture to guess that a lot of these kids would have been blue had we hired Hoke 6 years ago instead of RR. I think in the next 2 years, MSU will be back to being a 7 win school every year. All of that being said, yes I do believe that MD is the best thing that has happened to MSU since Saban.

08/08/2013 - 6:43pm "Our helmets have wings".

Still the best recruiting pitch ever.

06/03/2013 - 9:01pm I think DG is just what Dr. Borges ordered.

There is no mistaking that Denard was exactly what we needed over the last few years to try to recover from the utter destruction of every record that our school held so dear. That being said, however, I have been so excited to see this offense be built around someone who was a quarterback who could run as opposed to a running back who could throw. I love DRob and sincerely thank him for all that he did on and off the field but lets face it, he was not much of a threat on passing downs unless there were angels in the field with him. Devin seems to be a really good next step for our program and i am very excited for the future.

05/30/2013 - 12:27am did you forget about his luck against RR?

RR owned the Big East until he left. That was when Kelley started rocking it at Cinncy. As bad as RR was here he never lost to Kelley. ND only got the better of us last year because of turnovers. We gave up 6 TOs and only lost by a TD. When we gave up that many to Weiss in 08 at least he was able to capitilize in it. Kelley can't even manage to keep his team together.

05/28/2013 - 10:15pm or at least,

Year 4 anyway

05/28/2013 - 10:06pm not to be a negative nelly,

But I am far more interested in what they do on the field. I get what you are looking for but lets be honest, a 5* kid who does nothing on the field is far worse than a 3* who rocks it. Kelvin Grady is a perfect example.

04/01/2013 - 8:25pm Well I would definitely say

Well I would definitely say that you scientifically proved that you are overly superstitious.

12/04/2012 - 11:25pm Just keep in mind that Nick

Just keep in mind that Nick Saban was quoted (IIRC) 3 times as stating that he had no desire to go back to the college level.

09/25/2012 - 12:50pm I had a conversation with a

I had a conversation with a razorback fan the other day, where I pointed out that he was missing the bright side of the whole JLS debacle. He inquired what the bright side could be, and I replied "Well at least at this rate you won't have to worry about getting ready for a bowl game, so it frees up a lot of time to look for a new coach." He did not see the humor in the statement.

09/25/2012 - 12:32pm since I live in AR I can

since I live in AR I can assure you that there is a long line of people waiting to help him with that.

08/18/2012 - 11:05pm If I were the HC they would

If I were the HC they would run me out of town and the world's largest outcry would come to bring BH back.

 #1 or 2 no not this year.

Helmet stickers yes. Helmet numbers no

Alternate uniforms on the condition that they are used as either a recruiting tool or a method of surprise to throw off the other team. or both

My coordinators........ brainer........ the ones we got dude.

As far as the whole what type of offense I would run I am smart enough to know that I know less than nothing about anything so I would defer all decisions to my oober smart staff and I would hide in my office, until the crowd outside, mutilated Dave Brandon for hiring me.

Given my choice I'll keep running my machine at work and let the great men that are our beloved UM coaches,  just do what they do.

08/16/2012 - 6:06am I recently talked to a

I recently talked to a die-hard UF fan who told me that we better get ready to hate Urban because he would "own us". I went ahead and told him that I already hate him and then reminded him that Urban is 0-1 against UM.

08/13/2012 - 10:38am I think that we will have to wait and see.

At the end of the day, I think the only way to say if the punishment was adequate is to see if it happens again. If we are having this discussion again next year, we will know that it wasn't enough. On the other hand, I would hate to think that the team lost a winnable game over the defending national champs because of a mistake made by one person.

08/09/2012 - 11:03pm I Have to say

It took long enough. I was starting to think that this staff would never get anyone to commit for 2014. You really have to wonder if this staff knows what they're doing. Nearly half way through the 2013 class and they're just now now starting to focus in 2014. I mean REALLY.

08/03/2012 - 10:59pm I typically want sparty alum

I typically want sparty alum off my porch as quick as possible so i tip well enough to shut them up and get them on their way.

08/01/2012 - 5:37pm may be interesting to see what happens

It is very possible that we have some attrition this year once the season gets rolling. Please don't take this the wrong way, that is not what I am hoping for, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone buried on the depth chart opted to transfer for more play time.

07/30/2012 - 8:53am wish the kid nothing but the best.

Kind of wierd though, how he wanted nothing to do with UM as a recruit and now he is going to go play for an alum that most UM fans want nothing to do with.

06/12/2012 - 11:00pm Does that include the girl in

Does that include the girl in the bottom pic that is being urinated upon. Kind of weird dude

06/12/2012 - 9:58pm So what are you implying?

I get the feeling that you're trying to say something about their ability to pull in the best recruits in the nation.

06/11/2012 - 3:33pm Typically I sing "The

Typically I sing "The Victors" whenever I hear something cool like this, but in light of this news can I just say "What I got, you got to give it to your momma".

06/08/2012 - 9:08am I live in Arkansas and I have

I live in Arkansas and I have had about all I can take of the whole "SEC is the best" BS. I would love to beat the best the Shitty Education Confrence has had to offer over the last 7 years. That being said,  until we are up by 4 touchdowns with less than 5 minutes left in the game I will be wearing a hole in the carpet during every game.  

06/05/2012 - 9:45am I dont know that I'd say stole.

I would go with earned, took, maybe ascended into, but not stole

06/01/2012 - 11:34pm Out of principle I dont give

Out of principle I dont give out my email but can I Just say "wow". That would be sweet. I have read other posts similar to this one and they all seem to say the same thing. That he is exactly the same on the field or in front if the camera as he is off the field. Congrats on the cool events. I just can't help but love this guy.

05/20/2012 - 6:29pm Denard will wear #1

And play wr. Mealer has slimmed down so much that he is now moving into the qb spot and Gardner has put on enough weight that he is taking on Mealers spot on the line. It is the only logical explanation.

05/12/2012 - 11:51pm My advice to you would be to

My advice to you would be to wait until we beat them again this year and then tell him to piss off when he tells you he wants to come back to the Jedi.

05/11/2012 - 6:41pm Not sure how they can put BK

Not sure how they can put BK at 18. He never beat RR at WVU or at UM and the only big success that he had was in the Big Least after Petrino and RR left.

05/10/2012 - 10:41pm Not really sure why this guy

Not really sure why this guy is putting a negative spin on all of this. Personally I am loving the shit out of it.

04/08/2012 - 3:10pm Living only about 45 minutes

Living only about 45 minutes from Fayetteville I was not surprised to hear people saying that he should only receive a suspension or fine but not be fired. Those comments really came as no surprise to me (SEC and all), but I talked to one individual who made the comment "I don't care who he f%^&s as long as he wins." When confronted with the fact that Saint Petrino lied to his boss about having an innappropriate relationship with a fellow staff member his reply was "He is paid to win football games, other than that I don't care". Rumor on the streets here is that the boosters are already pleading with Long to keep him on. They deserve everything that they get if they keep him.

04/08/2012 - 2:18pm Don't forget about trying for

Don't forget about trying for the LSU job and Bama. About 2 months before he took the ATL job he signed a 10 year contract with Louisville, and promised the university and fans that he was committed to the success of the university and the football program.

03/14/2012 - 10:35pm Agreed. Pharoah Brown took a

Agreed. Pharoah Brown took a visit last year after committing and it cost him his offer. When T Rich wanted to take some of his officials after committing he was told that he would lose his offer. Hoke seemed to have a no tolerance policy toward visits after a committment. If he were to spend money to bring in other kids it would appear to them that he was not sold on them. That needs to be a two way street and Hoke is a smart enough guy to know that.

I'm sure that Urban only has one #1 wr that he wants. It is whichever one he happens to be talking to at the time.

Actually hav a question for all of you android savvy mgobloggers. I went to look something up on the android market and my icon is gone. Has this happened to anyone else and what do I do about it. Any help would be appreciated.

Have to say fb. Bb team did great this year but hoke and co. Did what they did with RR's kids, bb are all Belien's kids. Either way color me happy.

02/22/2012 - 5:46pm So glad that Hoke and Co. can

So glad that Hoke and Co. can recruit so well, but at this rate it is going to make for a very boring summer. Just saying.

Long Island iced tea. Rainforest makes a really cheap mix of this. Simply add sweet and sour and coke to taste and viola. Pretty descent drink for not a lot of cash.

Sorry to say it but when he said he wants to study nursing i got a vision of Gaylord Focker.

So you think that Hoke should offer a bunch of spartans.

02/11/2012 - 9:12pm So an offensive minded coach

So an offensive minded coach that found reasonable success in the Big East, does not have what it takes to make it in the big league. Wonder who could have seen that coming.

02/03/2012 - 10:30pm not to take up for meyer

But wasn't it bielema that ordered the chop block on Mike Martin in 2010. Does he really have that kind of room to talk about ethics.

02/03/2012 - 7:53pm Lou holtz. Actually he was

Lou holtz. Actually he was pissed they were not #1

02/03/2012 - 10:59am this actually could come to bite him in the a$$.

Because AR ended up getting this kid, they are now at 24 signees. That obviously means that they can only take one more kid in this class. If Gregory goes to AR where he is expected to go then that takes AR off the table for Diamond. That means that Diamond would either go to Auburn (AL's biggest rival) or to M which will of course give them their first loss of the year. 

02/03/2012 - 10:39am actually it is 3 NCs now.

actually it is 3 NCs now. Remember he won it while he was at LSU

02/03/2012 - 10:24am I hate to go with such a

I hate to go with such a generic answer, but, I have to go with everyone that will be on either side of the line. I can't wait to see what those guys can do in a year or two.
