McElwain to HC job at CMU

10/24/2018 - 10:56am One more kid who is probably…

One more kid who is probably not getting good advice from home.  Probably hearing "you are better than the guys ahead of you.  They don't appreciate you so you should transfer" rather than "keep working hard and do what the coaches ask of you".

Probably the same message all the other transfers are getting from home.  Bad parenting or bad influencers.  Quitters will keep quitting.

08/09/2018 - 1:24pm I hate that these kids are…

I hate that these kids are leaving the team.  No other way to look at it but to say they are quitting.  not on the team but on themselves. If they quit now they will probably spend the rest of their lives quitting. probably getting bad advice from someone who has only seen them succeed but don't want them to fail or struggle.  Allowing kids to quit is teaching them to fail.  if things don't always go your way then just quit and don't try to get better or make something good happen.  

I would love to know the conversations Harbaugh has with these kids.  I hope he encourages these kids to stick it out and compete before letting them leave.

A really bad trend here.  Upperclassmen need to intervene and coach them up on a personal level.

10/25/2017 - 1:29pm Urban Meyer

Urban Meyer hired Indiana's fired HC to be his OC.  WIlson ran the up-tempo spread that played at a million miles an hour with average players.  Now he is running same offense with 4 and 5 star guys.  Fast, fast ,fast. 

10/23/2017 - 12:14pm 3rd Yr Comparison

By comparison Brady Hoke, in his 3rd year was 7-6 afer going 11-2 and 8-5.  Got worse every year.  Mark Dantonio went 7-6, 9-4, 6-7 then 11-2 his 4th year then won the BT in his 4th year. James Frankil went 7-6, 7-6, 11-3 with a Big Ten  Championship and all the crap that went with Penn State.  Urban Meyer went 12-0 (and could have won the Nat Champ if not for sanctions, 12-2,  14-1 BT and Nat Champs, 12-1, 11-2, 6-1.  His worst yearas a head coach he was 8-5 his last year at FL.

Based on these coaches as recent history and geographically close, it appears year 3 and 4 are the tide turning years.  UM can still go 10-2 but 8-4 is more likely and 7-5 possible.  But next year.......  

 

 

 

10/10/2017 - 4:12pm Not a Michign Man

Grant Perry was arrested in December in EL on 4 counts of sexual assault, lying to a police officer and resisting arrest.  He vomited in his cell and denied any involvement.  That to me, or anyone else, is not being a Michigan man.  At least not in the sense Bo meant it. 

Harbaugh should have kicked him off the team permanantly but his response was "he is a good football player".  Bad precidence set here.

10/10/2017 - 4:05pm I agree.  I was wondering if

I agree.  I was wondering if he was going to volunteer to return his paycheck.  Someone used the Al Borges/Hoke offense analogy and that seems about right.

 

03/06/2017 - 2:15pm Tourney Seedings

Why is MSU a 5 seed and UM am 8 seed?  Both teams had identical BI0 records, they split the regular season amd Um has 2 more wins overall than MSU.  They would match up with an ave ILL team rather than Purdue B10 cahmps. 

03/02/2017 - 4:47pm Technically the proper rule

Technically the proper rule for defending that play is "Never let anyone get  behind you."

 

 

10/12/2016 - 2:46pm Stats, need stats!

Going to need some stats: Height, weight, favorite food, favorite super hero, favorite flavor ice cream, favorite teacher, how many songs on your phone,  etc.

 

12/02/2014 - 5:23pm New Hire

I think M should take OSU strategey.  Hire DC as Interim Head Coach for a year and have time to see who is out there and maybe interested.  OSU hire DC Luke Fickell as Interim then went out and got Urban who had left Florida a year earlier and was working for ESPN at the time.  He went undefeated his first year and would have played for National Champ if not on probation.

A good formula me thinks!

Arizona (Rich Rods team) is 9-2 and ranked 11th in country. He is in year 3 I believe, same as Urban at Ohio. Just sayin.
