It's Donnie Corley, not Connie Corey, btw.

Twitter lied to me.  He's on right now.

10/15/2014 - 4:58pm He said he's on at 5:50

John U. Bacon @Johnubacon


I'll be on the Huge Show at 5:50 today, discussing UM football.  

09/29/2014 - 1:26pm Great point

This is what I can't wrap my head around.  Sounds like his concussion protocol is "The player must self report a concussion, otherwise we're keeping him in.  Football is about toughness."

Props to Nick Baumgardner for asking that question, but needless to say, that was a pathetic response from Hoke.

09/24/2014 - 2:43pm Since we're talking unbashedly about dreams

I had a nightmare 2 nights ago that the Board of Regents fired Brandon and replaced him with GERG.  I was so deep in sleep that I totally bought it for 25 minutes.

09/09/2014 - 3:06pm I don't believe the business

I don't believe the business school has ever been ranked in the top 5 by USNWR, or at least it hasn't been anytime recently. The number 1 ranking you are referring to was from the Wall St Journal, a ranking that is widely considered very flawed.

08/11/2014 - 6:20pm There are glitzy high rise

There are glitzy high rise apartments popping up all over the place.  Talked to a few locals when I visited last month and most of them mentioned the rising cost of living is one of the biggest drawbacks.

12/02/2013 - 2:51pm Not sure if Kiffin all over again

I don't know if it's Kiffin all over again, but I agree that they could have done better.  Re: Sumlin, I read somewhere over the weekend that USC's interest in him soured over time as they saw TAMU's abysmal defense.  

12/02/2013 - 2:49pm It's fair to point out that

It's fair to point out that omission.  I just think that after 5-years and recruiting pretty darn well (to his credit), his results on the field don't scream homerun hire. 

12/02/2013 - 2:40pm Contrarian View Here

I am surprised to read a lot of positive reactions to this hire on this board.  I personally think USC could have had a homerun hire, and they missed a royal opportunity.  Sarkisian is 34-29 (1-6 vs. Stanford/Oregon/UCLA) over 5 years.  Does that make him a bad coach? No.  But it doesn't inspire confidence that he can win championships at USC.     

In the end, I think his experience at Washington shows he's a good coach, just not great.  I really thought Pat Haden would look outside of the Pete Carroll circle and make a run for someone like James Franklin or Chris Petersen.  This is similar to our own coaching search 3 years ago.  Sark had enough allies in and around the AD, and that is largely the reason he got this job IMO.

12/01/2013 - 11:28am Tim Beckman is #20 on that

Tim Beckman is #20 on that list.  I think he deserves a Top 10 honor.  

12/01/2013 - 11:15am Pelini is not getting fired

Nebraska's AD just issued a statement yesterday supporting him and saying he will be back.  


12/01/2013 - 10:47am Sigh, how things have changed...

..since we recruited Marcus Hall a few years ago…

03/04/2013 - 6:29pm To add to the replies below,

To add to the replies below, you're also failing to account for the caliber of graduate programs at UM - particularly engineering and business, both of which have strong reputations around the world.

03/13/2012 - 7:05pm Midwest Region Site

This is great. I did notice, however, that this has New Orleans listed as the Midwest Sweet 16/Elite 8 site, but I'm pretty sure it's actually supposed to be St. Louis.  

Speaking of which, a potential UNC-Kansas Elite 8 matchup gives Kansas a pretty significant home court advantage.

03/13/2012 - 12:55pm It's quite simple

Thanks to Coach Hoke, analysts and experts everywhere are confused as to which Ohio we are really playing.  Except Doug Gotleib, who is just an idiot.

12/14/2011 - 12:58pm RR to Pitt now?

sorry, had to.

12/10/2011 - 12:10pm Prof Thom's

You're going to be in the minority on this.  I haven't had their food before, so I can't speak to that, but calling it the "worst Michigan football viewing experience" and "one of the worst bars you can find in NYC" is going way overboard.  The owners/management at Prof Thom's has been immensely supportive of UofM, and in particular, the Alumni Club of NY.

10/08/2011 - 11:30pm Pelini

Did Pelini just kiss Fickell on the neck?  Fickell pulled away immediately.  That was really awkward...

10/08/2011 - 11:24pm In all seriousness...

I feel for Joe Bauserman.  Judging by the things being said at 11W, the guy's life might be in danger when he returns to Cbus.

09/22/2011 - 11:55pm I'm not convinced yet

that we're as national as Sparty.  

09/22/2011 - 11:51pm is it just me or does this

is it just me or does this provide us some closure for Rojo committing to USC?

09/16/2011 - 8:38pm interesante

Surprised that when Karsch asked if we'd see any new faces debut out there, Hoke replied "I don't think so"

09/01/2011 - 7:11am Not so fast my friend

Since Jerry Kill took over Gophers jerseys are the hottest selling item in the big apple. The tide is really turning and if their jersey sales are any indication, they will conquer Troy by a score of 65-2.

06/13/2011 - 7:26am New York event tonight

Thanks for posting this. I'll be attending the event in NY tonight. Will try to update everyone tonight or tomorrow on what happens.

01/19/2011 - 11:16pm who is worse?

Kuester or GERG?

01/17/2011 - 10:08pm He's available right now


He's available right now. You would think that if he were the guy, they would have hired him by now.


That's what we said about Hoke.

01/17/2011 - 8:42pm #47

i'm loving #47 in the background, clearly doesn't have Demar's swagger, but he gets an A for effort.

except damn Brent Musburger makes it difficult for us to forget him.

exhibit A of sour grapes.  

01/17/2011 - 12:06am You're once again missing the

You're once again missing the point and you fail to address the original post that you made.  

You see a Steelers team that now has "an automatic ticket" to beat a Jets team that has defeated them in Heinz Field and has shut down arguably the 2 best quarterbacks in the NFL.  The way the Jets defense is playing, they have a shot to beat anyone in the league.

01/16/2011 - 9:00pm wow

Rivals is really high on him.  #8 Cb in the nation!  Thanks for sharing.

01/16/2011 - 8:19pm um...

when did i ever guarantee a win for the Jets next week?  You on the other hand said the Steelers would have an automatic ticket to the Superbowl, which is why I pointed out that the Jets have already beaten the Steelers at Heinz Field, and thus next week's game is very winnable for New York.
