I can't bring myself to root for anyone else in the B1G, including non-conference regular season games
Didn't Jamie Dimon just come speak to the team? He's kicked more people in the nuts with subprime mortgages than ankles Suh has stepped on
Really? Do we need to create a list of guys who are turds that have played at OSU or visited the school? All schools have idiots in their programs or who played for their programs. There is no need to take jabs at any school for meeting with a player, turd or not.
They did win a Sugar Bowl in 2012
There's no controversy. Gwen Bush, mother of Wayne Lyons, was hired as Director of Player Development. She was also the "team mom" for the South Florida Express 7 on 7 team, who won the 7 on 7 National Championship and has had a lot of great players on the team. The Lyons to Michigan news has been out there for two weeks. How is this any different than Michigan State hiring Curtis Blackwell of Sound Mind Sound Body?
Harbaugh is moaning and complaining about this? Where?
Shane can move, Malzone can move, Gentry, despite being 6'6" or 6'7" can probably move better than both of them. And yes, you'll see a lot of 2 TEs b/c that's what Harbaugh does, and it works. I'm not so sure about the "get 10 wins and only good enough to be ranked and never get over the hump" statement. Everything Harbaugh has done prove he gets his team to compete at the top level, both college and pro. I think he knows what he's doing...especially with QBs
we won't be able to hear Mattison's side of the story due to NCAA rules, but I highly doubt a guy with the track record of Mattison's intentionally insulted the kid and his family. It stinks there was a miscommunication, but that happens. I'm not worried about Harbuagh's or Mattison's recruiting ability. Remember, there was a certain head coach that said he was the best recruiter in the country.
They have gotten two tonight (8 total now), one being Zach Gentry, a QB flip from Texas, the other Reuben Jones, a DE flip from Nebraska
3rd string as a true freshman, yes. His new OC is also the former OL coach at USC with him, so I think he has the advantage to starting going into next season. Plus, he's probably just better than the others.
if Weber comes to Michigan he will most likely red shirt right away. He has Green, Smith, Johnson (if healthy) and Ty Isaac ahead of him and I bet Isaac starts by the time B1G season starts.
His contract is around $5/mil w/ incentives. Similar to what he had at SF. There were bigger offers to him and he could have made more money in the NFL. He chose Michigan..He did not choose Michigan for the money.
Harbaugh will salvage some guys in 2015 (Chris Clark is very possible...again) and might be able to flip some big time guys, but I think 2016 is where you'll see the biggest impact and I have a feeling it will be BIG. These next few years will be fun for Michigan, Ohio State and the B1G
I would as a backup option for sure. Great coach, but not a head coach. Does Michigan want to take a flyer on a guy who doesn't have HC experience? I don't think so. The risk is probably fairly low with Herman, but they need something bigger and proven.
a lot of good choices on that list, but I would take Mora over anyone else
I actually wasn't trying to be a smart a$$ with my "no" comment. Coombs, Ash, Johnson and Fickell is a heck of a staff. You're D has a ton of good young guys, especially true freshmen, it could take a little time for them to fully get into the swing of things. If anything, switch from Fickell to Ash as the head DC.
It's possible, but not very likely Michigan could win on Saturday. I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled a great game out of their butts, especially if they can capitalize on a slow start by Ohio State like they had against Minnesota or Indiana. HOWEVER, if Michigan wins, it will have nothing to do with the kids supporting Brady Hoke and everything to do with them wanting to beat their biggest rival.
It's hard to argue with CC that this isn't rock bottom, I gotta agree. I'm curious why it's past lunch on Sunday after losing to Maryland and Hoke hasn't been fired yet. Just let Nuss coach against osu, it honestly couldn't be worse for what will happen.
why are people so dumb?
Yes, agreed. The big hitters, like Harbaugh, are option #1. Tom Herman, Pat Narduzzi or Chad Morris would be options #2...
I'm not sold that the AD needs to be a big hitter though. They just need to be smarter than Brandon, which shouldn't take much. The interim AD, Jim Hackett, could still be the guy and I don't really care as long as he's not an idiot. I have a feeling that whoever takes that seat will be better just b/c of what they saw happen with DB.
I would take him in a heart beat...It could be the next Woody v Bo
I'm not certain Harbaugh will come either, but he has to be the #1 choice. If they don't get him, there are a lot of great options available of already established head coaches in college and some great assistants that might take a HC job....cough*Tom Herman*cough
I think UM will hire a new AD shortly after the season when a certain NFL head coach could be available.
Before the Dave Brandon/Hoke being stuff came out, they had the top class in the nation for average star ranking at around 3.91/recruit...It's not really surprising that with the uncertainties of the coaching staff that decommits would happen and rankings drop...where would you expect them to be in their situation?
