Here's his pitch: "I was at Michigan for a year - and couldn't wait to get to Columbus."

How is it that Clemson has only had three coaches leave the past five years? 

01/07/2019 - 11:21pm Clemson still throwing it…

Clemson still throwing it. Love the aggression 

01/07/2019 - 10:57pm Yep - we would have run, run…

Yep - we would have run, run, run, punt

He’s busy planning the teams’ trip to S. Africa.

Being reported that Mattison has a history with Ryan Day from their time at Florida (Day was GA).  Same with the new CO-DC that's coming in from San Fran.  Could be that Ryan Day has a small pool of colleagues for whom he can contact.

The optics of this hurt more than actual on field production, IMO.  But, sometimes optics/perception becomes reality....  

Bring back Hoke, amirite??

01/02/2019 - 1:18pm Yep - that is the direction…

Yep - that is the direction my tin foil hat is pointing. 

It's a win-win for Urban.  His inexperienced and young handpicked successor either does really well...or he fails, and guess whose down the hall teaching a seminar in Ethics just waiting to step right back in as the Savior (once all the Zach Smith dust settles).  

 

100% Urban is coaching again, the only question is which team.  My money is still on OSU.

12/31/2018 - 12:12am Also Jim Leavitt and…

Also Jim Leavitt and Harbaugh go way back. IIRC he was named as a candidate back when DB was hired.

 

If Michigan is willing to pay Pep money (1.5 million) they can basically go after anyone they want.

12/30/2018 - 11:49pm Well apparently when…

Well apparently when Harbaugh got Don Brown he googled top defensive coordinators, so....

 

according to S&Ps defensive rankings a handful of names that may be willing to come to Michigan:

Pete Kwiatkowaki (Washington)

Bert Watts (Fresno)

Kevin Kane (NIU)

Matt House (UK)

 

And the list can go on and on. Anyways I’m not saying I would be excited for Don Brown to leave but there are plenty of people out there that can beat up on the meatball opponents with broken QBs and then  get hamblasted by OSU.

 

12/29/2018 - 10:47pm That’s the thing. Harbaugh…

That’s the thing. Harbaugh was supposed to be “the best QB coach in America.”  What QB have we had in the last four years that’s put the fear of god into opposing teams?  How many have gotten better during their time?  Rudock - who went from a B to a B+ qb?

12/29/2018 - 10:42pm That blown call changed the…

That blown call changed the course of recent Michigan football. We were on the short end of an inch play and it’s made all the difference since.

12/29/2018 - 10:28pm Hey! Let’s point to a random…

Hey! Let’s point to a random data set that has no bearing on this program nor  affects us in any way whatsoever to prove some point that we’re heading in the right direction.

 

 This is the stupidest argument ever and you should feel like a complete moron for even posting it.  

12/29/2018 - 1:02pm Re watched Tariq Black …

Re watched Tariq Black “yelling” at Harbaugh. Didn’t see anything like that. Looked like he was cheering on DPJ walking back to the sideline, then started talking to Hatbaugh - perhaps loudly but got no sense it was because of animosity. 

12/28/2018 - 1:23am But how would that one dude…

But how would that one dude who runs the Outback Bowl continue to make seven figures off the backs of amateur athletes?

12/17/2018 - 2:36pm Yikes.  When you lay it out…

Yikes.  When you lay it out like that...

 

But, to be fair, some of those going early to the NFL should be a part of life at a major college program.  

12/17/2018 - 2:33pm The knock on Harbaugh was…

The knock on Harbaugh was that his players burned out on him.  Brian rationalized this away when he was hired by saying something to the effect of Harbaugh not having the chance to do that since players are only here for such a short period of time.  But, maybe there is something to the theory that some guys can't stand him.  I dunno - grasping at straws here.

I don't see how this bodes well at all for a Mr. Harrison - how do you explain one of your most talented players leaving when he's in line for a starting role?  

12/12/2018 - 2:47pm Way too early to be talking…

Way too early to be talking about seeds, but I am 100% fine if Michigan isn't a 1.  Both of their recent final four runs came when they were somewhat of forgotten team - I would be OK if they slip under the radar and didn't have a giant target on their back.

12/04/2018 - 11:28pm Thought the team got to that…

Thought the team got to that 15 point lead and let their foot off the pedal. Honesty this win is probably best case scenario to keep everyone focused going into this Lull we have.

12/04/2018 - 11:06pm Great win.  Lots of things…

Great win.  Lots of things to work on and brings everyone back down to earth.

How is this place louder than Crisler?

12/04/2018 - 11:22am Cue the hagiography of Urban…

Cue the hagiography of Urban Meyer.  At least one national reporter - Pat Forde - is able to write about Meyer's complicated past:

12/02/2018 - 5:00pm Wow. The hits from The Game…

Wow. The hits from The Game keep coming.  Thanks Jim, for that garbage game plan!  This about sums up Michigan Football over the past ten years : all the potential in the world just to crash and burn on the biggest stage and end the season an afterthought.  

12/01/2018 - 9:14pm This game is just a second…

This game is just a second kick to the nuts.  How bad was that game plan last week??? It’s even worse when you watch NW hold their own. 🤦🏽‍♂️

12/01/2018 - 8:44pm OSU defense is garbage. …

OSU defense is garbage.  People saying the offense wasn’t the problem clearly didn’t see how bad their D was all year.

12/01/2018 - 6:31pm It would have been dropped

It would have been dropped

11/26/2018 - 2:37pm Sorry - you're right I…

Sorry - you're right I should clarify. 

The recipe seemed to be working early in the game.  IE we weathered the initial storm and put together a couple drives that ate up time on the clock and kept the OSU offense on the sidelines.  If Gentry hangs on to that ball, the game looks a little different early on (admittedly, the outcome likely would not have changed).  We controlled the TOP and you didn't have to squint too hard to see that our past recipe for success may work again.  

We also got the ball mid-way through the third quarter *with a chance to take the lead.*  With everything that happened in the second half of games this season, there had to still be optimism at that point.

Anyways, my point remains, once the onslaught came (whether that was after the first drive or in the fourth quarter) there was no adjustment and that is a damning indictment on the coaching.

11/26/2018 - 1:23pm I had this weird feeling all…

I had this weird feeling all week once I saw the betting line and the media attention over Michigan: you don't just get anointed the winner over Urban Meyer.  I think the narrative, more than anything, cost this team the game. 

They came in overconfident, thinking what they've done in the past could continue working.  Michigan thought they could play good defense, pound the ball, and wear them down in the second half.  For a second there, it looked like it could work (they were controlling the game up to the middle point of the second quarter).

The problem is they had no Plan B after they were punched in the mouth.  Once their defense got exposed, there was no plan to stem the bleeding (zone, prevent d, anything) nor was there any urgency on O (high-tempo, spread it out, play a shootout).  

I keep going back to who was the biggest culprit - defense or offense.  In the end, it was the gameplan more than anything, and that's on all the coaches.

11/26/2018 - 12:23pm The offense has always been…

The offense has always been B/B- caliber all-year. 

There were reasons we justified in this in our heads (not running Shea to "save" him for OSU, doing the bare minimum to skate by against inferior opponents, keeping plays and formations locked up to unleash our full potential against OSU, etc.etc.).  None of those turned out to be true and the offense showed that at the end of the day it's ceiling was only what we thought: a B/B- caliber unit. 

Nothing more or nothing less happened Saturday.

 

11/24/2018 - 10:50pm Color me shocked that our…

Color me shocked that our tightend that is a three star converted qb dropped a bunch of balls while their five star WRs ran all over our defense.

11/24/2018 - 10:04pm Uhm fuck you. Carr is 1-0…

Uhm fuck you. Carr is 1-0 against Urban. Honestly the hate Lloyd still gets here is baffling when he’s been the best coach at Michigan since at least Bo.

11/24/2018 - 3:04pm Looks like harbaugh back on…

Looks like harbaugh back on the hot seat

11/23/2018 - 11:26pm Well it’s a tony Gibson…

Well it’s a tony Gibson coached defense so what do you expect?

11/21/2018 - 3:05pm Surprised to see 2016 so far…

Surprised to see 2016 so far down that list.  What accounts for the large difference between then and now?  Both games for the B1G Championship game, both for a playoff spot (though less so if OSU wins Saturday).

11/19/2018 - 2:26pm BRING IT!  No sense backing…

BRING IT!  No sense backing off or playing safe.  Hope Jim comes out with that attitude while coaching, too.  Now, if only Chase will be healthy....

Why do they keep running in the red zone like this?!?

Kick ball - should have been a penalty.  BUT without that kick the ref was still fumbling the ball with two seconds left. There’s no way we get the hike off unless Spartan Bob is the clock manager.  THATS on Harbuagh - he got too cute trying to send a message (three runs with no time outs??).  That’s terrible clock management.

11/17/2018 - 4:45pm First time since Maryland 7…

First time since Maryland 7-3 in 1Q. We saw how that turned out. Everyone chill.

Is this our first time trailing since the NW game?

I’ll eat a lemon if Ohio state sues.  

10/24/2018 - 2:22pm I hear these stories about…

I hear these stories about college basketball players like Stu going overseas and wonder - who are these fans paying money to watch mid-tier American college basketball players, the majority of whom they've probably never heard of?  How is this a profitable enterprise?  What is does a player like Stu earn - a sack of potatoes?   

It's an awesome gig - no doubt I would love to do it - but I just don't understand how it's sustainable. 

10/23/2018 - 11:26am Why are people so convinced…

Why are people so convinced Brohm is leaving?  If he can get Purdue up and running that is a cushy gig - the only real competition (currently) is Wisconsin. It's not like the Big West is a gauntlet.  

He's in the Big10, playing for a school that could make him a God, with some history of success (Tiller, Brees, etc).  It's not like he's in the MAC.

10/21/2018 - 12:01am Big east widdde open, too.

Big10 west is widdde open, too.
