10/02/2015 - 8:13am It's also too bad that 760am

It's also too bad that 760am doesn't carry Michigan Football!

10/02/2015 - 7:31am Gotcha Covered!

Go to "Game Central" on the football homepage of mgoblue.com.  There will be a listen button there.  Go Blue!!!  I live in Florida and use this all the time.  I guess because of contractual restrictions radio stations can't live stream the game.

12/29/2014 - 3:42pm Would a / instead of a -

satisfy you?

12/29/2014 - 3:39pm Reporters on ESPN and NFL network

are still saying NFL is pursuing him!  Good for a laugh.

12/27/2014 - 8:19am Not True

You can't grant permission until after the season is over.  Teams can't even talk to one another about it.

12/27/2014 - 7:50am Don't believe it

It's not legal under NFL rules for a team to ask or give permission for coaches to talk to other teams about jobs.

http://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/college/university-michigan/201…

 

Key paragraph:

Even without the Rooney Rule, league policy prohibits getting a head start. Another facet of the NFL's Anti-Tampering Policy is that until after the final game of the season:

* No head coach may discuss or accept employment for the current or a future season with another club in the league.

* No club may request permission to discuss employment with a head coach for the current or a future season.

* No employer club may grant another club permission to discuss employment with its head coach for the current or a future season.

 

It's complete BS.

11/17/2014 - 5:09pm Matt Campbell - Toledo

The guy fits the Schembechler mold, young MAC coach from a winning background. (Bo was 38 when his was hired).  Campbell won at Mt. Union and knows what winners do.  He has done fairly well at Toledo - a better record than Bo had after 3 years at Miami.  From what I have read it seams like he has a really good work ethic and is a hell of a recruiter.  Let's give him a shot.  Do we really have anything to lose?  http://www.utrockets.com/ViewArticle.dbml?ATCLID=204987252

01/18/2012 - 4:36pm I don't think we need to worry.

It sounds like these bills are all but dead.  Even co-sponsors are bailing.

Saying Bama is a lock? Bama had their shot and blew it. Let Ok St try.

12/03/2011 - 9:40pm Ok St 24. OK 0

Anyone think Bama has a lock on #2?

12/03/2011 - 9:24pm Ok St beating OK helps us

b/c OK may drop below us and no chance for at large.

12/03/2011 - 9:18pm People THINK!

We need MSU to win b/c Baylor won. When MSU wins, it help us with computer point b/c we played them. I hate it, but I'd rather have the BCS bowl.

12/03/2011 - 9:15pm Hey!

We need Wisky to LOSE!

12/03/2011 - 8:34pm No

Moo u would have 3 losses.

12/03/2011 - 8:29pm Nooooo Wisconsin!

Unfortunately we need to root for state. When they win we get more computer points. We need computer points to stay ahead of Baylor so the don't jump is to 14

12/01/2011 - 7:30am Does THE KNOWLEDGE know

THE FONZ?

11/30/2011 - 6:03pm Or maybe this is why it got pulled

11/30/2011 - 5:59pm Craigslist posting pulled

Maybe they got the 50,000 people they needed already!

11/28/2011 - 6:39pm I wouldn't call Meyer a savior

After that presser, I'd call him an accountant.

11/28/2011 - 6:39pm I wouldn't call Meyer a savior

After that presser, I'd call him an accountant.

11/28/2011 - 6:36pm No passion

I would we worried if I were an OSU fan.  This guy did nothing to try and excite the fan base.  Their fan base is down and needs something uplifting.  He was a downer. As an M-man, I'm happy.  Going for 2 in a row!

11/28/2011 - 6:18pm That press conference was

one of the most sterile I have seen.  It's like they were going thru the motions.  No passion.  Brady won me over at his presser.  I wasn't so sure about him before.  After his PC, I would have run thru a wall for him.  Would you do that for Meyer after seeing that POS presser?  Thank God for Brady Hoke!

11/28/2011 - 5:59pm Wow..that was motivating!

That was as boring as an Indiana off-tackle play.

11/28/2011 - 5:50pm Did anyone notice

Gene Smith did not smile once when talking about his new coach?

11/28/2011 - 5:45pm At OSU they have

a few Rivals. And let me tell you the UAB game is "THE MOST IMPORTANT GAME ON THAT SCHEDULE"!

11/28/2011 - 5:41pm 25 minutes

Someone find out how long it took Brady to mention OSU.

11/28/2011 - 5:38pm 21 minutes

No mention of Michigan.  This is a coach that "Gets It'?  This is not going well to start off for them.

11/28/2011 - 7:21am Disgusting but root for MSU

Either losing in the B1G CG helps us but MSU winning helps us more in the computer polls because we played them.

01/15/2011 - 10:44am Pardon me but.

David Brandon when asked how many people he talked to about the job, he said "several".  I think that's more than one.  He went to 5 cities and he said he talked to many more people on the phone.  Not sure where you got the idea that the search was limited to one person.  Brandon said different in his Presser introducing Hoke.

01/15/2011 - 9:15am New and exciting?

You say you were promised "something new and exciting".  I don't remember that from Brandon's presser.  Please cite your reference. But let's go with that for arguments sake.

Seems to me we went the "new and exciting" route 3 years ago.  How did that work out for us?  Seems to me we need to get back to some Big Ten football.  Instead of running past our opponents we got beat up in the conference.  When RR was fired, I wanted someone to coach hard nose football.  I still think Harbaugh was that guy.  But you know what, maybe Hoke is.  Don't know yet, but  he sure is talking a good game. 

Here's a car analogy for you instead of a pizza one:  Maybe we need a truck to get our work done instead of a Ferarri to get to our workplace quicker.  Let's get the right fit for our program instead of the hottest new thing that might look good but doesn't produce results

01/15/2011 - 8:54am The last time I checked

Dave Brandon doesn't go around the country hiring coordinators...that is unless he needs to give a private jet a workout....that would  be Brady Hoke's job.  So don't go complaining about paying top notch money for coordinators.  These are the guys Hoke wants and feels he can win with. Hoke knows he has pretty loose purse strings to go get staff. 

 I'm tired of people complaining about the new hires associated with the football program when, they haven't gone on a recruiting trip, haven't held a practice or coached a game yet.  Here's some advice, if you don't like some of these guys, keep your powder dry until they have some results we don't like.  Then call for their heads.

I didn't want Hoke either.  Based on his track record, I would have looked for a more established coach or hot coordinator.  But this is who we got and after his Presser and seeing how he's been talking to some team members, I'll support him until he gives me reason not to. 

When RR was hired I thought, "Well, he sure doesn't understand what it's like to be the head coach at Michigan, but I'll give him time."  He NEVER got it.  At least Hoke gets it.  Let's see if that translates to wins.

01/14/2011 - 7:56am I don't get it.

San Diego State knew that Hoke was looking to get the Michigan job.  He even told the AD it was his dream job.  So I don't understand why they might be pissed that he didn't sign the extension.  Would you sign one knowing there was a potential to get the job you always wanted?

The only thing that would not be so cool is if Brandon did not ask SDSU for permission to talk to Hoke.  Hoke did everything above board so should have Brandon.  If he didn't "shame on him"!

01/13/2011 - 6:38am Yeah!

That will REALLY unite the fanbase...How about playing some defense?  Adidas horns?  Really?  Who gives a crap about who makes our uniforms?

01/11/2011 - 7:34pm Brian. Get over it

Hoke wasn't my first choice either. Far from it he was my last and judging by media reports he was Brandon's too. But how about waiting until he puts together a staff before calling it a stupid hire. Heck how about waiting until he actually makes his first pressu as coach. If you continue to call it stupid and say recruits are turning away guess what? It may be a self fulfilling prophecy. Most of us didn't want him either but we got him. Give the guy a break and let him do his thing (how about anything before you rip him.

01/11/2011 - 1:08pm How could this possibly get any worse? One word

HOKE!

01/11/2011 - 11:48am Les Miles scheduled

to be speaking in Dallas from 2-2:50pm CT that's 3-3:50 ET..That makes it REAL hard for him to be here at 4pm for the players meeting.  If it's him.  He'll be here sometime after the speach or tomorrow.

01/11/2011 - 7:40am LSU & tigerdroppings

tigerdroppings has been down all night.  I wonder if LSU put pressure on them to take it down to stop speculation.

01/11/2011 - 7:30am I would expect

a leak today.  If DB has to wait a week for job posting, no PC until tomorrow.  Just a guess.

01/11/2011 - 7:22am Updating from the late late night thread

Gruden says "No, heck no. I'll be back." when Tirico asked if he'll be entertaining coaching offers.  Brandon's stop in Dallas could have been to set a contract framework with Miles agent George Bass.  Bass is based in Dallas.  No smoke or fire from Patterson.  Looks like it's Les.  Just my gut.  Possible PC tomorrow with an appearance at the OSU game.  That would be pretty cool.  I wasn't hot on Miles..but I'll get behind him.  KEEP IT CLEAN LES!

01/11/2011 - 7:15am MIles agent George Bass

is based in Dallas.  Perhaps that's what the DBs stop there was for...to set up the framework of a contract.  I'm not 100% pleased about that.  I'd rather have a younger, established coach.  But I can get behind Miles...we'll just be doing this again sooner than I would like, b/c if Miles coaches 13 years for us like Carr did, he'll be 70.

01/11/2011 - 7:00am Looks like Gruden

took himself out of the running.  According to the FP this morning

As the radio program was signing off, Mike Tirico asked Gruden whether he would entertain any job offers this off-season.

"No, heck no," Gruden answered. "I'll be back."

Sorry can't provide link..It sets off sites spam filters.  Looks like it's Miles unless we can pull off getting Patterson.

01/11/2011 - 6:39am Hoke is too old to be HC-in-waiting

He's already 52.  If Miles stays 5 years then Hoke is 57...Like the HC in waiting idea ... looking for younger though.

01/11/2011 - 6:21am I totally agree about Patterson

Established coach...great defensive mind...coached Ehrlacher..runs 3-3-5.  Proven winner...younger than MIles

01/10/2011 - 9:20pm Who can confirm

Team meeting tomorrow? More tan just message board non source posting please

01/10/2011 - 9:10pm Will everyone chill out

Meeting probably happened. DB to sleep on decision. He also interviewed people in AZ and Big D. Has to choose between Miles, Gruden, and perhaps Patterson. Don't forget he was in Dallas for a day. TCU is in Ft Worth. Lawyers to haggle contract. Posting downtime runs out Wed. Nothing official till then. Don't expect PC before Thurs

01/10/2011 - 9:44am Perhaps nor the Stoops we are talking about

Marl Stoops is DC at FSU. Two brothersof his are HCs. He played at Iowa. Not a bad background. I'd like Mullen. I just don't think he would leave for a rebuilding project. Gruden would be great. But I don't see him coaching. College. FWIW since DB is in Big D I hope he talks to Patterson. TCU is in Fort Worth.

01/09/2011 - 7:14pm Yeah, it's telling

Me that Urban is in Arizona. So are a llot of people. So he's on espn. So are a lot of people. So he's sitting next to Desmond. So does Lee Corso. Is he going to be our next coach?

01/09/2011 - 3:46pm The John Harbaugh option

Is no longer an option. Hello Les.
