The block ‘M’ on Michigan’s campus has been painted green.

El Guapo got some good runs in for his first NFL (albeit preseason) game. Can't knock that Michigan Man though, he knew a good thing when he seen it.

How true this is. I've been away from home for over 13 years since I went active duty. Lived in some great places and may never live there again, but there isn't a month that goes by where I don't miss it.

I dont think he was saying MM would not have left, only it leaves some to wonder. I think he still would have, family is much more important... I do however think it is a shame that we never got to see what MM had to offer. There were a few occasions where perhaps we should have.

Less talented players at lesser schools have been coached to perform in much more efficient ways then our D last year. The key word is coached. It absolutely has much to do with coaching...

It did feel like there was little communication among the position coaches. As a coordinator of anything he should always be in the other coaches ears, keeping abreast of his players. We will never know if MM would have been better... Truly hope Ash provides more continuity and corrects the lack of communication.

Until all those preaching tolerance can themselves learn tolerance these kinds of arguments will never end.

Certainly may be "both our guys". But I plan on watching those midshipmen get curb--stomped.

Comment 18 Jan 2014

Couldn't help but notice that the company responsible for this whole fiasco just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.  Appropriate considering the situation, though I imagine this won't keep the feds off their back anyway.  Hope this mess clears up soon...

I absolutely agree with the sentiment of Bosa being a leader next year.  Leadership does not always have to be with the most senior person; often times if that leadership hasn't shown through before hand, rarely will it later on.  Of course we can all hope that our upper classmen step up and take that leadership role.  Oftentimes in the absence of leadership, a leader will be made...  I think it takes excelling in all aspects of the game; making the big play yet being solid the rest of the time is important.  As was said by OSU07 earlier, Bosa led by being on the field even when he was injured, who would've blamed him for sitting it out. In my opinion it could be any one of these freshman or redshirts that step up to be the leaders our team, and I'm good with that.

I hope its the end to the CoDC title. Never been a fan of it.  If there is one that makes all the calls and one that doesn't that defeats the purpose of a Co anything.  "Too many chiefs" type situation IMO. We need a strong hire to fill the sole DC position, so this lateral move that many are talking about really starts to disappear.  Then make another strong hire for the DL.

Comment 05 Jan 2014

People do not typically change their philosophy in a year's time... If we all agree that the defensive philosophy needs a change then we certainly do need a new mind in the mix, at a high enough position to make a difference.

If our defense goes onto the field and looks confused about play calls 14 games later there must be a problem.  With lack of proper guidance and training even the smartest and best people around can and will be lost at times.  It seems to me that coaching is the more logical issue to blame, not the players.

In a different world it wouldve been easy to root for this guy. Still sounds like he's a bit of  a Buckeye to me. I'd wish him good luck but I would rather we kick them to the curb soundly.

Comment 19 Dec 2013

The question we can pose now, given the update on Withers, what changes do we expect within the defense and that ludicrous Co-DC position? For some Im sure this move was with the wrong coach.

Comment 16 Dec 2013

I like what you mention about starting fifth year seniors even when there are those crucial mistakes being made that really shouldn't be happening, at least from somebody with so much experience. There are freshman waiting in the wings to be given a chance just to "make" those mistakes and I think they need to be given that opportunity.  I love how players earn their time in practice and on special teams but then that makes me start to wonder about their work ethic a little bit if through a whole season they aren't given that chance.

I certainly do have to agree on the D coaching staff coming to some decision on scheme.  I admit I am certainly not a coach, nor do I claim to be remotely smarter than the ones that we have for our D but I've always loved the saying, "jack of all trades, expert of none".  Seems to ring true in our case. Thoughts?

Comment 09 Dec 2013

I had many of the same questions and thoughts. Something happened during the last quarter of the game that I just did not understand at all. I missed the variety throughout the season but I really missed it during the MSU game.  Seemed our offense was a bit TOO predictable.

Comment 09 Dec 2013

^ this.  If only I could put this as my #4 it says everything that I was thinking and probably more.
