05/16/2017 - 1:56pm Two way turn arounds

I'm not sure where you are in TX, but in Houston you have those turn around cut outs on median/blvd separated roads and everybody turns around into the near side of the cutout instead of going to the far side. The result is that you can't see oncoming traffic because the other car opposing you (turning other way) is blocking your view.

We also have dedicated turn arounds for each direction and even those are arranged incorrectly so that your view is block by the guy opposing you. It's downright dangerous because every time you decide to pull out, you're hoping not to get T-boned.

12/06/2015 - 12:46am Cool

Cool

01/06/2015 - 3:22pm I think so

Looks like her, yes

12/29/2014 - 9:51pm Agreed

I was just recently in UT's (Texas) weight room and it is huge. Very high ceilings, tons of power racks and all the extra goodies. Looks a lot nicer than what ours looks like from the pictures.

12/27/2014 - 2:41pm Alums?

I think he means coaches who went back to coach the schools they attended.

12/23/2014 - 2:56pm Tight box

I don't think I've ever seen a box this tight before...

12/22/2014 - 12:00pm Really?

Does this look like the face of a liar??

12/22/2014 - 11:37am Sam this morning

This morning, Sam Webb said he was confident in JH, but not too confident. He gave a vague statement that Michigan "missed" on coaches last minute in 2007 and 2011, so maybe the 2011 "miss" was with Jim?

Who knows, but baby seal seems confident, so who are we to question it???

12/19/2014 - 2:24pm (No subject)

12/18/2014 - 3:41pm Yes

12/18/2014 - 3:13pm I'm hoping for this

12/17/2014 - 9:48pm Sam seemed to disagree

Sam Webb seemed to disagree completely with Brian's sentiments. In fact, he said Miles was almost a sure thing and him saying he wasn't interested was complete BS. We'll have to see how it shakes out though!

12/15/2014 - 5:26pm Lucky?

Dude, we get it, you don't like Miles. To say he's gotten "lucky" in the SEC is laughable. Also, look at his recruiting rankings vs Michigan's. Hint: they're very similar. Invalid argument is invalid.

12/15/2014 - 1:26pm Entitled to your opinion

You're certainly entitled to your opinion, but why on God's green earth would you have an OC with no HC experience higher than anybody on that list?

12/15/2014 - 12:53pm If not JH

If Jim says no, please give us this:

 

12/12/2014 - 9:12am Everyone else wanted them

These guys were recruited by some pretty good programs, so I'm fairly certain they have talent enough to run an offense. I'm going to guess that coaching had a lot to do with how Devin and Shane looked this season.

12/12/2014 - 8:59am 3 Highly Rated QBs

Next season we will have three highly rated QBs on the roster: Shane (Jr.), Speight (RS Fr.) and Malzone (Fr.).

What lack of depth is there at that position?

12/10/2014 - 5:39pm Pretty Bold Statement

That's a pretty bold statement to say that Les Miles is a "known scumbag". What proof do you have of that besides internet rumors?

I hate to reiterate the same "cool story bro" over and over again, but I have a close friend with a MSU undergrad and Buckeye graduate degree who worked with Miles for years at Okie State and said he was a fantastic coach and a great guy to boot. Mind you, this guy also takes shots at Michigan every chance he gets, so for him to say something like that speaks volumes to me.

How many teams have you seen with an awesome talent base that didn't perform on the field? Happens all the time! Michigan recruits just as well as LSU and I don't feel like pulling the data again.

Does a Zook Florida team ring a bell? How about a Lane Kiffin USC team? This is getting tiresome. Give credit where it's due man. Miles is a top notch recruiter and coach. You don't "get lucky" for 10 years and win 78% of games at LSU.

12/10/2014 - 9:14am Was listening as well

Sounds like exactly what everyone here thought as well. 

On another note, it is nice to hear that everyone is happy with the direction Hackett is going and the way he is conducting this search. Sounds like he is engaging all of the stackholders.

Calling Tennessee Blue!

12/09/2014 - 7:18pm JH or Miles

I will poop my draws with glee if we hire either Harbaugh or Miles

12/09/2014 - 11:54am Winning?

Is winning 78% of games a good fit for Michigan?

12/09/2014 - 11:52am Lots of places have talent

There have been many instances of places stocked with great talent, but have fallen short due to poor coaching. Ron Zook, Muschamp, Hoke, Kiffin...need I go on?

College ball comes down to coaching and player development. It doesn't matter how much talent you have if the coaching is garbage. Bottom line: Miles recruits well AND develops the talent. You don't get lucky in the SEC west and win like he does.

The "hype" may have something to do with people liking double digit win seasons and MNCs?

12/07/2014 - 10:26pm First hand accounts?

What kind of things are you talking about? My friend worked with him day in and day out at Okie State and said he really liked the guy. Also said the players liked him too.

12/07/2014 - 9:30pm If he hasn't

This could be nonsense, but if Miles has really not been contacted, that would be disappointing.

12/07/2014 - 8:37pm Just going to keep posting this

Yeah, I don't want him either...

12/07/2014 - 8:18pm I guess

I guess 78% of the time the mad hatter act is okay then.

12/07/2014 - 5:18pm proof

What proof do we have that Miles has done anything wrong? It is nonsense to rule him out based on rumors. If his recruiting practices are what you're talking about, it's simple: let him know straight out that none of that flies here, period. Now what is the problem?

12/07/2014 - 1:35pm Miles

IF JH is going to be a no, why the hell are people like Addazio even in the conversation when Miles would probably say yes. He should be the clear #2.

12/06/2014 - 2:11pm I like it

First double post! Yippee!

12/06/2014 - 2:07pm I like it

Gives some of the fans a perspective on what these players have endured and how not getting behind the leadership leads to turmoil. More fans need to read this.

12/06/2014 - 1:28pm get well soon

Hey Ace, best of luck to you guys in figuring out what is going on. Hope you feel better soon!

12/05/2014 - 2:34pm Amen

I was hoping someone else had picked up on this too. I have no preference on offensive scheme (different ways to skin a cat), but when Ray said the spread doesn't work in the north, I starting yelling in my car.

Also, I don't understand the notion that Miles may not do as well with less talent at Michigan. We see it time and time again in the college game: coaching makes all the difference regardless of talent level. As an example, Lane Kiffin had some very talented players at USC (same or better levels than LSU), but they underperformed. Miles sustained Saban level results at LSU over the long term. He's a great coach and trying to argue that points to more of a personal dislike than reviewing the facts.

12/05/2014 - 2:23pm No

That makes too much sense and would thoroughly obliterate all Miles detractor straw man arguments!

12/04/2014 - 11:02pm What

What the heck is happening on the board tonight? It's like everyone is a space cadet.

12/04/2014 - 7:07pm Past Saban

Miles' success extends far beyond Saban recruits, so you're argument there is weak. I'm merely suggesting Miles is more of a sure thing based on a pretty large sample size, but if you want to argue that, then fine.

I compare Miss St. more to a Michigan State. Would we be saying Dantonio is a home-run hire if his last 5 seasons (excluding this year) were a .567 winning percentage? Doubt it.

Comparisons of Michigan St vs Miss St recruiting classes (Rivals):

Year Michigan St Mississippi St
2009 17 25
2010 30 38
2011 31 44
2012 41 30
2013 26 40
Avg 29 35.4

Granted Miss St is in the SEC, but this does not scream "home-run hire" to me. Miles and success at Michigan appears to be an easier conclusion to draw in my opinion.

7/10 seasons with 10+ wins. That is all.

12/04/2014 - 10:15am Couldn't he just say no?

If he didn't want the job, why wouldn't he just say no and squash all the talk so he can focus completely on his current team?

12/03/2014 - 5:24pm Eating Crow

I might eat crow for this, but I highly doubt it: it is completely delusional to think that Bob Stoops would leave OU for Michigan. I think we are tooting our own horns a bit here.

12/03/2014 - 12:41pm Les

I have a relative who went to MSU undergrad and OSU for grad school who worked with Les when he was the O-line coach at Okie State. He said he thought the guy was awesome and that all the players loved him as well. Didn't seem to think he was dirty.

Now some things may have changed, but I think if you make it clear that none of that stuff goes on here, then there's no problem.

12/02/2014 - 4:50pm I like this guy

Well done Mr. Hackett. Thank God to get rid of "Michigan Man". Sounds like he has it covered.
