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?
Dave Brandon out AND Michigan picks up a 2016 LB committ..on the same day...is this real life?
This was a great article. Nicely done Ramzy
He won't be the last decommit, but I don't think there will be a mass exodus. Clark seems likely to leave, but what school hasn't he decommitted from already?
Can't agree with this more. Brandon and his PR minions are complete idiots and it only gets worse as it trickles down to the head football coach. While I defended Hoke in the past and wanted to see him make it through the '15 season, this weekend and this situation were the absolute last straw. He and Brandon should be gone...now
That being said, while the rest of the world (except the Buckeye and Spartan fans) want Hoke gone yesterday, but it probably won't happen until the post season when he gets his $2mil termination check...I hate college football right now...so much...
I'm hoping for either of the Harbaugh brothers, but getting them from the NFL will be tough, even when Jim is fired by the 49ers after this season. Maybe Les Miles, maybe Mark Stoops...But Doug Nussmeier seems to be a realistic option that I wouldn't be too upset with.
thrown into a game where you're down 16 and it's raining heavily, not his fault...Go watch the bowl game from last year where he started, he looked pretty good, I'm positive for his future...
That being said, I wish Hoke just stuck with his gut and kept Gardner at WR. I am willing to put up with growing pains with Morris. I am not willing to put up with growing pains with a QB who's been in the program for 16 years and still sucks
I for one was happy to see the rain delay...to end whatever that was...
