"and that means hiring people who will go beyond the call of duty (and beyond just protecting their ass) when something so obviously disgusting is asking YOU to take action."  

If that's the case Michigan needs a new Board of Regents. They just allowed the university to be run via twitter.

I wonder what harming Michigan's brand is worth?

Shark - he preys on people like you.

Here's an example of his work. I keep it around to remind myself what an expert he is on players as well as being a world class asshat. He posted this in August.

Exactly. Plenty of confirmation bias at work here. It is just as likely that he is acknowledging what he has heard from the coaches.

As Woodson put it; “My message to them is as young leaders on the team, those guys have to demand greatness out of themselves, their teammates and coaches as well."

The difference between greatness and mediocrity can be half a step, the two inches that keeps a LB from getting a handful of jersey, the half a finger length that spells the difference between a highlight reel catch and a ball that is deflected for an interception or that falls to the ground on third down. The coaches can't provide that.

I'm not defending the coaches - they have plenty to be accountable for on their own. I just don't see this as Patterson calling the coaching out.

That wasn't even a shove, it was a poke in the chest to emphasize a point.

IMO you are spot on. We didn't just break the player pipeline. We broke the coaching, and the NFL bound senior leadership in the room. We broke the entire system.

He's down signing up for Urban's Leadership Class.

I'm a little new at this, can someone point me to the Fire Harbaugh post? I feel a need to add my 2 cents.

This announcement had nothing to do with Pressure Sensitive Adhesive. WTH?

Dammit man, I can't find any mention of Beline anywhere. Them SOBs, they got rid of him!

These posts always worry me. I have iinsider information so I know that Warde reads MGoBlog every morning with his coffee to decide whether JH stays or goes.

I'm just broken up that you're going to watch it on tape. You don't deserve the team's efforts, win or lose.

I've posted this before, so I'll apologize to the members who have seen it.

My dad's first cousin was aboard the California. When the order to abandon ship was given he went into the water with his gun crew - the last time they saw him. His body was not recovered. It was chaotic after the attack, and communications were all but non-existent. My aunt never fully recovered from those days, weeks, and even months of uncertainty. There were so many terribly wounded and unidentified sailors in the hospital that it was impossible for her to give up hope.

The ship was due for an inspection so many of the watertight doors were open when the attack began. That resulted in flooding that settled the ship on the harbor floor. The California went down fighting - more Medals of Honor were awarded to California crewmen than to the crews of any of the other ships.

RIP S2c T. Simmons

I've toured the Nautilus, it was an amazing experience. To see the Nautilus and imagine what the WWII Boats must have been like is sobering. It is impossible to have anything but pure respect for the men who went to war in those submarines.

Have to run the Wishbone if we want to win - OP in 1970.

Swing and a miss sayeth the straw man. Show me where any mention was made of tournaments. Search the blog for 'fire Beilein'. If the blogerati had it's way he'd have been sent packing long ago.

 

ROFL, looking at your posts over the last 24 hours you're acting like a spoiled child who didn't get what they wanted on Christmas morning. The loss sucked. The team met or exceeded the expectations of the vast majority of us at the beginning of the season. The team isn't responsible for the fan base or the first to retweet media being unable to manage their expectations.

We only have that opportunity because he wasn't fired when the mantra around here was 'fire Beilein'.

Outstanding, thanks yet again Mello!

Thanks LSA, so very well put.

I have too many things to be thankful for to list. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

I believe it was while Marcus Ray was still on WTKA in the afternoon. I never got to hear the beginning of the broadcast, so I had  no idea who Marcus was speaking to other than that he was one of Woody's offensive linemen. This lineman had been involved along with Woody and many others helping former Ohio players. He related that Woody, basically on his death bed told him that if he needed help to assist a former player to go to Michigan. Paraphrasing here, but he said 'they're just like us (player name), just like us.'

I'm sure Chase didn't mean to do it, and we know they don't flag plays if the player didn't mean to do it, they told us, after all.

We struggle to understand the numbers every year. Every year, we also rediscover the fact that the staff knows more about this than we do.

Something about your post is disgusting, but it isn't Corso.

We stayed for the entire game, simply because there was no way to get our bus back early.

I would never do that. I roll with tsiO.

I emailed Zach Smith to discover his secret to twitter blackmail. As soon as I have the doctors set up we'll know all!

I admire optimism. This guy either needs help or he's auditioning for The Onion.

I enjoy listening to them, although I don't listen all that often. Mostly, I'm happy to live in a world where we are reduced to bitching about the PBP Announcer in November!

More importantly, they  believe in one another.

I did see "Referines" for the first time today. What a grin.

Refs throw a flag after x seconds of holding? Clearly x-1 isn't holding. I think that falls under 'just a little rubbin', unless it's Sparty doing it in which case it's completely dirty.

Once upon a time I leaned toward 'nice', then the lost decade began. No more, I'm fine with Mean. Play to take away their will to compete.

It's funny, as often as I've heard that complaint from people I have never witnessed it in person - thank goodness.

I hope McSorley has flashbacks every time he sees long blond hair.

Don Brown thinks about them when he wakes up. That would make me uneasy.

They may have to build a new stadium at a different location to overcome the trauma.

Warming up before the SMU game he was kicking the ball over the net and you'd have needed a ruler to figure out if it was right or left. i don't know what is wrong, but I hope they get it ironed out.
