04/11/2018 - 7:07am Saw him once in the Pittsburgh airport...

1987-1988 timeframe. Sitting on his suitcase near baggage claim pick-up,
a lone figure.

He looked sad & I felt the same when I saw him there.

I'm surprised you didn't focus more on Sheffield in your write-up. Based on the video that i've seen, he's Ohio State's weak link when on the field.

When he's not targeting the TE, I'll bet JBC has the QB throw at Sheffield.

Are these the latest rankings?…

If so, it looks like they're #6 in the B1G and ahead of Rice and USC.

"Four letter word just to get me along
It's a difficulty and I'm biting on my tongue and I
I keep stalling, keeping me together
People around gotta find something to say now

Holding back, everyday the same
Don't wanna be a loner

Listen to me, oh no
I never say anything at all
But with nothing to consider they forget my name
(ame, ame, ame)

They call me 'hell'
They call me 'Stacey'
They call me 'her'
They call me 'Jane'
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name

They call me 'quiet'
But I'm a riot
Always the same
That's not my name
That's not my name
That's not my name

That's not my name"

That's not their name either. But it was amusing.

Yesterday, we were hoisted by our own petard.

There's dumb and there's dumber. 


01/06/2011 - 2:57pm It's Les Miles

I was a Jim Harbaugh advocate when RichRod was hired but Michigan turned a deaf ear and went with the flavor of the month. Now look at Harbaugh. My wife met RichRod at the UM women's football camp prior to his first season and said "he's John Cooper". And she was right. So now the RichRod dismissal is a fair accompli (three years and a cloud of dust") but what does Michigan do now if Harbaugh says "no"?
They have one option - Les Miles. Yes, he's an ass clown. But he beat Ohio State in the BCS NC game. And he's the one true linkage to Bo that's actually viable and Michigan needs that lineage now more than ever. Michigan needs to rebuild the proud tradition that eroded under RichRod. And Ohio State fans will love to hate Les Miles. A guy like Brady Hoke will not get the same immediate respect and will not get the juices flowing on either side of the Toledo border.

So why would Miles leave now? Miles has to see that the rise of Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas (and Mississippi State!?) in the SEC West will make his life much more difficult in the years ahead. He has already been to summit at LSU but their fans are already asking "what have you done for me lately?". On the other had, he can be the Michigan savior and compete in a less intense environment  within the Big Ten's Legends division (against his former defensive coordinator Bo Pelini).

In my view, Dave Brandon has choreographed this well. If you don't know where you're going, stay where you are. But he moved. Based on what happened last time, the Les Miles hire will not leak prior to LSU's game against Texas A&M . And Brandon will not be incommunicado on a yacht in the near term. So I would expect an announcement sometime after LSU's Bowl game so that Michigan doesn't have  replay of the last hiring fiasco.

I will be shocked if Les Miles is not the next Michigan coach.

Go Blue!

05/14/2009 - 9:50pm I Just Want To Know When They Mail The Season Tix. Seriously.


05/14/2009 - 9:40pm I'm A Newbie. They Said The Tickets Move Around Each Game... <m>

So I'd like to know where we're sitting each game so I can decide which games to go to. I have two boys (nine and 15) who play football on different weekend days. No evil intent.

05/05/2009 - 7:53am Just Received Season Ticket Application. A Question...

About 10 years ago, I paid a nominal fee and was placed on the season ticket waiting list. I never heard back and never really expected to be able to take advantage of the opportunity. But since my kids were very young at the time, I thought that I might get a shot when they were older. But I knew that it was a long shot.

Well, I received a mailing yesterday from the ticket office offering me the opportunity to buy up to four season tickets but only have about 10 days to make my decision. I was stunned.

My only thought is that if the Athletic Department is offering ME tickets, that UM season ticket sales must have plummeted due to 1) U.S. economy 2) drop-off in auto industry support 2) the recent lack of success on the field.

Anybody hearing anything about season ticket sales?
