The word on Saban since his days in East Lansing is he treats the people around him like shit. I remember one story that when he got to Alabama he put the word out that he was not to be talked to as he walked around the football offices. The emperor didn't have time for anyone below him.

Great coach yes but but a truly bad human being.

You could say the same thing about Ojabo.

01/14/2019 - 3:37pm Michigan gets anyone in the…

Michigan gets anyone in the door anywhere. After that its about your recruiting skills. Partridge recruits a bunch of states, Georgia in particular. Quite successfully.

I've been hoping for Vinson Reynolds the DLine coach at Syracuse.

The only player I can think of who is even near Simpson is Zack Novak.

Brian sure ain't wrong here.

Absolutely worth the price. Cory Stavenhagen if the UM football writer and he is very good. It's what Sports Illustrated was way back in the days of my youth.  Excellent writers given room to breathe.

Wasn't Eli Wallich in that movie? And Katherine Ross was Jim Brown's love interest?

01/12/2019 - 5:00pm And eat did she do with the…

And what did she do with the information?

01/12/2019 - 4:52pm I'm a bit troubled here…

I'm a bit troubled here. Assuming, repeat assuming, that the coach in question acted properly why should she be disqualified forevermore? I understand the need to burn down USA gymnastics but does that mean everyone inside the building should be incinerated?

Well, after paying off all the Nassar settlements the private jet budget has been eviscerated.

01/11/2019 - 5:50pm Recruiting didn't go well in…

Recruiting didn't go well in the RichRod era. After all...

Vlad Emilien, Davion Rogers, Christian Pace, Ray Vinopal, Tony Posada, Demar Dorsey, Marvin Robinson, Justin Feagin, Dann O'Neill, JeRon Stokes, Anthony LaLota, Austin White, D.J. Williamson, Jordan Paskorz, Ricardo Miller, Cullen Christian, Carvin Johnson, Justin Turner, Taylor Hill...

Oy!

If Fields get the immediate transfer based on this issue will Georgia ever recruit another African American? The NCAA will have taken the stand that Athens is unsafe for them. The negative recruiting would be epic. 

01/10/2019 - 1:15pm We just got carpet bombed by…

We just got carpet bombed by O$U and eviscerated by Florida. I don't think losing any coach would be catastrophic.

01/09/2019 - 12:06pm Thibodeau would be the…

Thibodeau would be the worlds worst recruiter. Man cant help but piss off everyone around him.

You beat me by seconds with the Hotel California reference.

I suppose Pep spent the night at the Hotel California. He can check out any time he wants but he can never leave.

01/08/2019 - 2:14pm Please, please, please...NO!…

Please, please, please...NO!

An up and comer. Not a has been.

01/08/2019 - 8:46am For the love of God...NO!…

For the love of God...NO! Brady Hoke is the past. The distant past. Look forward. Find a dynamic young DL coach (Al Washington?) and let him do his thing.

01/08/2019 - 8:42am Nothing works 100%. Your…

Nothing works 100%. Your fortunate if your hiring success rate is better than 50/50. But you weed out the losers quickly and move on. BTW...seems O$U, Alabama and Oklahoma manage to churn assistant coaches and have good people to plug in. 

01/07/2019 - 10:36pm Young guys grinding and…

Young guys grinding and perfecting their coaching? I'll name two. Ryan Day and Lincoln Riley. Day's most prominent college before O$U was Boston College. He spent two unsuccessful seasons following  Chip Kelly around the NFL as QB coach and then became OC in Columbus for one season before he gets the big gig. 39 years old. Riley was at Eastern Carolina in 2014. Became OC at Oklahoma in 2015. Now he's talked about as NFL head coaching material.

Point here is that there are a lot of young, aggressive,  innovative coaches toiling in the hinterlands. Get them. If they are good maybe you get three or four years before they move on to head coaching jobs. Then go out and get more of the same. Youth, energy, enthusiasm, ambition and innovation. Just a few gray beards for perspective otherwise go young.

01/07/2019 - 8:05pm There must be young guys…

There must be young guys like McVay and LaFleur working in smaller colleges just waiting to be noticed. Lincoln Riley was at East Carolina before he went to Oklahoma.

01/07/2019 - 8:01pm I guess Pat Fitzgerald swung…

I guess Pat Fitzgerald swung and missed. Too bad. Would have been interesting to see him coaching 53 separate corporations.

Let's just enjoy this season. Live in the moment. In the end we're all dead so why worry?

01/07/2019 - 3:37pm That Zack Harrison guy must…

That Zack Harrison guy must be AWESOME. Our DL coach jumps ship just for the opportunity to coach him.

/s

01/07/2019 - 3:34pm I thought the DL…

I thought the DL underachieved this season but did not anticipate Mattison would be Drevno'd. I believe Harbaugh knew exactly what was going on and was fine with it. 

01/07/2019 - 2:00pm If Iggy sticks around for a…

If Iggy sticks around for a second season imagine a front court of Teske, Johns and Iggy. With Livers who could back up all three positions. In the words of the late great Dick Enberg "Oh my!"

01/07/2019 - 1:10pm I go back to the days of…

I go back to the days of Johnny Orr and his hyperactive, disheveled assistant Bill Frieder. And Beilein is a far better coach than anyone we have had in likely forever. 

01/07/2019 - 12:57pm Ugh! I'm afraid you're right…

Ugh! I'm afraid you're right. Thinking about moving to Slovakia. Random I know but anybody can do Canada.

01/05/2019 - 7:15pm Thank you Brady Hoke.

Thank you Brady Hoke.

01/02/2019 - 9:02am The bottom half of the bowl…

The bottom half of the bowl schedule is crappy TV filler. The stadiums are three quarters empty, it costs the schools to be there and ratings blow. Dump the games. I bet ESPN could attract more viewers with poker tourneys.

Toxic sludge? Welcome to Twitter. It's a cancer.

12/30/2018 - 11:53pm Since your listening…

Since your listening Truferblue had you asked the same question the last DC opening nobody would have mentioned Don Brown. I don't want to lose Brown but if he goes he goes. 

12/30/2018 - 11:44pm I didn't say a word about…

I didn't say a word about tanking!

12/30/2018 - 6:33pm Rita going with him?

Rita going with him?

12/29/2018 - 10:55pm Tough to swallow but choke…

Tough to swallow but choke is the proper word. Sitting fourth in the bowl rankings and then giving up 62 and 41 points in the last two games is choking plain and simple.

12/29/2018 - 10:49pm I've always thought if RR…

I've always thought if RR hired a top tier DC and gave him the keys to the defense he might still be here. Aside from the first year the offense was good. He would still be at Arizona if he didn't meddle in the defense. That and not sticking his penis in the payroll.

Then again, RR has a problem recruiting so maybe I'm full of shit.

12/29/2018 - 10:32pm GrandPa and JoePa too.

GrandPa and JoePa too.

Avatar? My three greatest influences while I was in Ann Arbor: John Lennon, Karl Marx and Firesign Theatre.

 "Where's Porgy?" He's upstairs helping Porcelyn make the bed!

Picture: My favorite hockey player back then.

Partridge and Washington are two more.

Not according to Stephen Curry.

Last show? Next season please do not forget Jamie Mac doing the B1G roundup.

Me? I'm a Cordale Flott guy.

12/19/2018 - 6:59am Excepting Dobbs, who was…

Excepting Dobbs, who was never coming to Ann Arbor, it's not a great year in state. Do you propose we take lesser talent just so we can say we "own" the state?

12/18/2018 - 6:52pm I would have loved to see…

I would have loved to see Don Rickels roast Nick Saban. What would the over/under be on how long until Nick tried to strangle the guy?

12/18/2018 - 6:48pm Rich Rod took the Alabama…

Rich Rod took the Alabama job. Saban went to Texas where he died trying to brand a bull to impress some 5 star country boy.
