He is 69 years old. He coached at Michigan for 13 years of his long coaching career. There was over 20 years between his two stints here. I find his departure to OSU coming directly from UM incredibly distasteful (and likely involves spite despite the apologists) but to call him a "UM lifer" is a bit of a stretch isn't it?
|12/03/2018 - 5:30pm||His mom is an alumna of…||
His mom is an alumna of Michigan but his father is an alumnus of Stanford (Master's Degree) .
This may have some bearing on where he is supposedly leaning.

It would be fun to get an opportunity to see him take some snaps next week.
I hope these QBs stay, compete, and help restore UM as an annual B10 contender. Once upon a time, there was a pipeline of NFL QBs that understood they were unlikely to play for a couple of years when committing to UM.

"basically premium board speculation"
Has there ever been an indication of anything more than this? Further, has there ever been a true "insider" who takes the time to post on fan forums?
|05/01/2018 - 11:03pm||Pirate fan eh...||
Which Pirate are you a fan of?
|02/07/2018 - 11:28am||Not There Yet||
I think the recruiting of both Hoke and Harbaugh early in their tenures shows that with the "hope" of good coaching and associated wins...UM is still a destination.
Unfortunately, we've failed to recruit and develop QBs and OL and we've changed coaches 3 times in a decade. It is incredibly important for Harbaugh to succeed and develop a succession plan to avoid realizing the scenario you described.
|01/01/2018 - 9:32am||Yes||
I will be there. The schedule is a serious downer. It has been a great tradition going to the GLI each year during the Christmas vacation week. Now we can see the lads and miss the CFP games. This will be followed by skipping the GLI championship day due to work. Ric Flair says...
|12/29/2017 - 8:30pm||Thank Goodness?||
I'm confused by your statement.

I suggest you check the boxscore of the game and report back on LJ Scott's impact.
|04/30/2017 - 2:43am||Meaningless?||
Meaningless bowl game? I don't think a Top 10 matchup is meaningless.
At what point do you declare you aren't playing to avoid injury? Do you sit out games against IU and Illinois some November in your sophomore year because you aren't going to the playoff?
Pro sports has already ruined college basketball...Now you want to ruin football too?
Someone already addressed why Jake Butt fell and it wasn't all injury. My gut tells me most high end guys lose a round with a non-career threatening injury. That is probably less if Matt Millen is drafting.
|02/15/2017 - 3:36pm||You work in Kzoo||
So this makes you an expert? You see more UM/MSU gear? Maybe WMU has less of a Walmart population. /s
I'll preface my comments with full disclosure that I'm an alumnus of both. I'm also a UM football season ticket holder who attends WMU athletics when I can (I live in SE MI now).
People care but they've been let down by the athletic department for many years. Do you think if WMU would have been willing to invest $2mil in a coach and money in facilities earlier than the Fleck era it is possible there would be more passion? I'm guessing you are a Central grad (to the dude acting like WMU is Kzoo Central HS).
Additionally, I'm not sure how the threat of winning a National Championship defines that a program matters or that its fans can care. If that were the case we better shut down MGoBlog. 1 title in 79 years doesn't really distinguish UM from WMU (yes there is a significant difference despite this stupid stipulation by the poster).
Question...f you are a hockey fan would you rather be WMU or UM in the near future? (For those not tracking at home WMU is Top 10 while UM is painfully awful.) Point being...things can change in college sports but it has to start with a committed administration.
WMU has the donors and alumni to field a very competitive athletic department. Many would like to see a continued commitment to what has apparently started the last few years. Baseball, football, hockey, women's sports are on the rise.
|02/04/2017 - 11:25pm||Big Cushioned?||
So UMich pays a Top 10 salary, has great facilities, Jordan brand... What "Cushioned" job is better for a mid major coach?
|01/31/2017 - 4:17pm||The California school system||
The California school system is not the same as one school (U of M) having two sat campuses. California has discrete schools under a state umbrella. You may have noticed the Cal Bears playing UCLA in football.
The UM sat campuses don't carry the same prestige or admissions standards (the latter has some influence on the former) but they are most certainly part of the university family and provide a quality education. Dearborn was more selective this year than State.
Sat campuses have a Chancellor but all fall under the Prez and Regents. The branding is the same, the student tickets are the same etc. A2 handles some of the administration duties for all campuses (such as instate tuition determination). Rackham handles all three campuses for admissions applications.
In short, not quite the same as the State of California educational system.

He hired a bozo Ron Jeremy look alike as coach/president (which has worked how many times in Sports?).
If I have to deal with a Sparty owner I'll take the one who won a Championship in a MORIBUND sports town known as Cleveland.

Is that you Jeff Moss? Do you like Michigan football? Did you listen to the radio broadcast in the last 40 years? If the answer to both is yes...you shared a tribe.

Serious question...why do you believe UMbig11 has any real inside knowledge?

He was not up for contract renewal. His contract was through 2020 and WMU is owed a buyout. He was being offered a new extension with significantly more money. Fleck is a fake. The world now knows it. The timing of his departure was bad enough. Now raiding WMU's class right before signing day?
He has undone what good he did the last couple of years. WMU has a solid AD and the university decided it likes winning. I believe they'll find the right person.

You could always read the transcript or watch the presser with the AD yesterday where she states WMU owns the rights to the slogan...or you could just spout off on what you think and pass it as fact.

3 of those were by a total of 5 points. It really doesn't mean shit with regards to "conference superiority". You had Iowa playing the SEC runner-up. 6-6 Indiana playing a Top 20 Utah losing by a point. Northwestern playing #23 Pitt and winning. UM and PSU losing in the last 30 seconds to Top 10 teams.
The only embarrassment was THEE Ohio State University.

And Western has bottled them up for the most part...they get killed early on some wide receiver jet sweeps. However, the D has bounced back nicely and is holding up at the point of attack. So I'm not sure Wisky has some great o-line.
