So your argument is that because Manuel made mistakes in the hiring process, a woman who he hired and who did nothing wrong should be terminated anyway? Because optics? Ok.

Today in hip hop it's called brilliance

SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH!

I read an article yesterday that Enos was the new OC at Bama. Was that wrong?

01/11/2019 - 12:09pm I'm gonna say right now that…

I'm gonna say right now that Perry will make an NFL team next year. Strong route runner, smart, good hands. 

01/10/2019 - 4:00pm Not disagreeing but what…

Not disagreeing but what makes you say "obviously" he had a big role in play calling?

01/08/2019 - 7:20pm Entirely due to the NFL…

Entirely due to the NFL literally not knowing anything. The thought is "young offensive minded coaches like McVay and Nagy are doing well, let's get one of those!" Which is an idiotic way of hiring. 

01/08/2019 - 6:54pm He ran a good offense…

He ran a good offense. Because Sean McVay and a couple other young OC types are successful the NFL thinks that's the template. As usual it will fail because running an a good offense (or defense) is way down the list of what makes for good head coaches

01/08/2019 - 5:52pm Why do people think he'll be…

Why do people think he'll be a good head coach? Evidence? Contrary to what the NFL thinks, being a good OC has little to do with being a good Head Coach. #1? Can you lead, do grown men respect you and buy into what you want. Can you make good decisions is #2. Those, by leaps and bounds, are ten times more important than what offense you run.

If Washington leaves too BPONE is in full effect.

01/07/2019 - 12:22pm Bama and Clemson are 100%…

Bama and Clemson are 100% deserving and therefore I have zero issue with their paying over and over. People don't hate other rivalry games that are played every year, this just happens to be one that isn;t scheduled. 

01/05/2019 - 3:43pm Hmm. I call BS on this call…

Hmm. I call BS on this call of BS

01/02/2019 - 4:16pm Your comment on Ruddock is…

Your comment on Ruddock is categorically, objectively, wrong

01/02/2019 - 2:01pm Well I agree with this, at…

Well I agree with this, at least as applied to the last 15 years, but I don't think it contradicts my point.

01/02/2019 - 11:54am I actually heard someone say…

I actually heard someone say they missed that campaign. I was flabbergasted. 

01/02/2019 - 11:53am Yep. We have never, apart…

Yep. We have never, apart from one year in the last 40 ('97) been an elite program, defined here as Bama/Clemson/recent OSU elite. We have been (apart from RR/Hoke) a good, top 20 program that loses 2-3 games a year and has good behavior and academics. That's what we are. I'm ok with that, especially if we can go .500 going forward against OSU.

01/02/2019 - 9:26am I agree. I would have zero…

I agree. I would have zero issue whatsoever with returning to the old bowl system. 

01/02/2019 - 9:25am Because IMO then non…

Because IMO then non-deserving teams will be in the playoffs. GTFO if you lost 3 games during the regular season. You don't deserve a chance in the playoffs. And a side benefit of that attitude is that it means the regular season is hugely important. Right now if you have a good team and you lose a single game the fans and players are devastated. That's a good thing because it ensures full focus and importance of each game. Take this year for example: Bama and Clemson are the two best teams, no question whatsoever. The current format ensures that the two best teams likely play for the NC. In a 12 team format there's a chance that a 2-3 loss team upsets an undefeated Clemson in an early round game. Contrary to majority option that would NOT be a fair result. I would hate to see that happen, because the current system, says the most deserving teams over 12 games are in--not a team that gets hot at seasons's end.

01/01/2019 - 9:39am Tate did not get worse until…

Tate did not get worse until RR left. 

12/30/2018 - 3:39pm That wasn't what I meant at…

That wasn't what I meant at all. I just took note of his name that day, and that was it. It was all organic, and led to a compliment

12/30/2018 - 3:34pm Totally agree with your…

Totally agree with your whole post. One aspect of the expectations I have is recruiting--OSU has a massive advantage over us--Ohio. A comparatively huge talent advantage in numbers of quality HS players, vs. what we have available in Michigan--where we compete somewhat with MSU for players, and OSU has zero real competition in their home state, other than the 1-2 guys we can get each years from there. 

12/30/2018 - 3:29pm Well to counter two of your…

Well to counter two of your points, first, show me where exactly M markets themselves like Bama or Clemson or "wanting to be that." The football coaches discuss that, because every coach in America does the exact same, but that's not marketing, and M does not sell seats that way. Second, I'm saying NC expectations and then anger are completely misplaced, because that hasn't been reality for 40 years other than one solitary year. I hope for NC's, but I don't expect NC's because I live in the world where M exists, not some phony Bama or Clemson expectation. 

12/30/2018 - 10:35am Agree. And the Florida…

Agree. And the Florida players said as much after the game.

On a side note, I remember arguing fiercely with you on some political point on a thread a year ago or more on something or other before a thread was locked. Couldn't possibly have disagreed more or thought you were more different planet type wrong. But since then I've seen hundreds of your posts and am in lockstep 99% of the time. Just goes to show politics isn't everything. 

12/30/2018 - 9:55am Dude, they are treated like…

Dude, they are treated like KINGS. This poor athlete being mistreated meme is total and utter bullshit without foundation. However, I do agree with your general sentiment that we shouldn't be criticizing their choices and that they have to do what they think is best for their future.

12/29/2018 - 7:31pm That's what we are, and that…

That's what we are, and that's what we have been. We've had a NC in '97, and apart from that? EVERY YEAR since late Bo era, we have been a 2-3 loss team, or worse under RR/Hoke. When people talk about what we should be, it's sad. We are this. Exactly this. 

12/29/2018 - 7:25pm Yes that's the problem. No…

Yes that's the problem. No official OC title. Of course! Are you available to hire?

12/29/2018 - 4:52pm Lol. Yes that’s why. It’s…

Lol. Yes that’s why. It’s the fans like me

12/29/2018 - 4:08pm One thing I saw Wojo tweet…

One thing I saw Wojo tweet that I agree with totally--our secondary turned out to be over-rated, particularly the safeties but including the corners too.

12/29/2018 - 4:06pm It's not enjoyable, but it's…

It's not enjoyable, but it's reality. We have been like this for 30 years with one exception--1997. Period. It's ridiculous to pretend otherwise, stomp your feet and say we "should" be more. There's a lot of things worse in college football than consistent 10 win seasons doing it clean, with good academics. 

12/29/2018 - 3:54pm Because Kinnel is so, so,…

Because Kinnel is so, so, much worse

12/29/2018 - 3:53pm This is who we are. It's…

This is who we are. It's best to accept that.

12/29/2018 - 3:51pm Guys, this is who we are…

Guys, this is who we are. After four years we know this. We are a ten win team who can't beat good teams, with a defense and D-coordinator that is good but over-rated, and a head coach who is good, but a poor game manager. There is no objective evidence, nothing whatsoever, that would suggest that will change. If you don't calibrate your expectations to this going forward, you are in for more disappointment. As for me, I'm disappointed but vastly prefer this situation to what we had with Hoke and RR. So I'm actually accepting of this reality. Thinking that we "should" be more is irrelevant and foolish. Harbaugh is going nowhere, this is the program we have. Consistent 10 win seasons, which is nice but that's the ceiling, and that's a reality.

12/29/2018 - 3:49pm Ludicrous, dumb post. Lloyd…

Ludicrous, dumb post. Lloyd wasn't great, but the program burned during RR and Hoke. Come on.

12/29/2018 - 2:41pm Guys, this is who we are…

Guys, this is who we are. After four years we know this. We are a ten win team who can't beat good teams, with a defense and D-coordinator that is good but over-rated, and a head coach who is qualified and good, but a poor game manager. There is no objective evidence, nothing whatsoever, that would suggest that will change. If you don't calibrate your expectations to this going forward, you are in for more disappointment. As for me, I'm disappointed but vastly prefer this situation to what we had with Hoke and RR. So I'm actually accepting of this reality. 

12/27/2018 - 8:35am For me it's because the…

For me it's because the better the conference is perceived, the better it is for Michigan. In a hypothetical scenario (unfortunately) where M is tied with the same record as say a PAC12 team, in a playoff scenario the team with the better conference perception would have an edge. Also there is some pride involved in playing in a tough conference--ask the average SEC fan about that one. You can have a great record but it's discounted around the country--recruiting impact--if the conference is weak. The stronger the conference the better for us IMO. 

12/24/2018 - 9:59am I'm sick of the major New…

I'm sick of the major New Years Day bowls not being played on New Years Day. There should be no exceptions to this rule unless NY's is on an NFL Sunday in a particular year.

12/22/2018 - 10:07am Then your house would be…

Then your house would be lost, for sure, with zero doubt about that. Shea is a late round pick right now, as scouts have already said.

12/21/2018 - 7:04pm Great news. I can't help but…

Great news. I can't help but think though that a small part of McCaffery is going "shit," in the midst of being happy for the team.

12/21/2018 - 2:07pm Great news for the…

Great news for the University and good PR. It is 100% positive, regardless of any orientation, and anyone bringing politics into this should be immediately banned. 

12/21/2018 - 1:59pm The President of my company…

The President of my company says this all the time. Is that you?

12/21/2018 - 9:00am Totally agree. I actually…

Totally agree. I actually think Maizen/DB etc. has a point underneath all the negativity: we do sign, not just a few more, but a lot more three stars than elite teams do--not just Bama, but OSU and a couple others. I think it's a legit point say that we likely won't achieve the status we all want for the program without getting a higher star percentage in the future. Now, that point is debatable, but it's not beyond argument. Where Maizen goes wrong is to imply that this higher percentage of 3 stars is by the choice of the coaches, and that somehow they prefer a Joey Velasquez to a (insert 4 star reference here)--which is idiotic. The coaches are recruiting the best players they can get, or arguably, the best players that the skill of our recruiters can get.

12/19/2018 - 10:19am Will that make it better?

Will that make it better?

12/19/2018 - 10:14am The bowls are finished as…

The bowls are finished as things players take seriously either way, four team or 24.  Anything ore than 8 ruins the a far more important thing, the regular season, which is the best regular season in sports, precisely because even one loss is devastating. Once you can get in with three losses, that goes away.

12/19/2018 - 10:11am Because its a horrible idea…

Because its a horrible idea that would ruin the best regular season in sports. Awful, terrible idea

12/19/2018 - 10:09am This makes me skeptical of…

This makes me skeptical of the team rankings. When Hill de-committed we went out of the top ten-- so when one top guy comes back to the class the whole class goes from outside the top ten all the way to #6?

12/18/2018 - 10:37am Not Moyles or Louis

Not Moyles or Louis

12/18/2018 - 10:35am I think the board shares the…

I think the board shares the blame for a lot of those signings, and some players Jose wanted were not pursued as well. A big problem for MU was not only losing Ferguson, but losing their top exec (forget his name) at the same time Sir Alex retired. 

12/18/2018 - 10:34am I agree with all this (and…

I agree with all this (and as a Liverpool supporter was glad of it) but I did get some irrational pleasure out of the fact that he's one of the few managers in sports who doesn't seem to care if he pisses off his highest paid players. In an era of players getting coaches fired and deciding on their own schemes and plays regardless of the coach I kinda like that.

12/18/2018 - 10:10am Exactly. It's one thing to…

Exactly. It's one thing to be unhappy about the coaching and your personal playing time. But it is easier for some if the team is crushing it. But when you're unhappy and get the shit beat out of you on national TV and get embarrassed, I suspect it becomes a lot more intolerable. 

12/17/2018 - 2:39pm We did not win our division,…

We did not win our division, that's participation trophy pathetic bullshit. GA lost respectably to the best team in their conference (and the country), and we got embarrassed. Two large differences. Any neutral observer in the country would put a bet on GA over M as to who has the most upside the next few years. 

That bet could be wrong and I hope it is. But GA is a better program than we are right now.
