Michigan

Not that anybody should care about this irrelevant football team, but I wanted to hear some of your takes on the state of Michigan football. On my end, it's kind of brutal. Sick of the hype and the apologists. Anything that can go wrong has gone wrong and any inkling of hope you might have had 3 yea...

Re: Coaching Moves

He retired after taking the interim job for a few games. He's 71 so I don't think he was looking for a full-time thing.

Re: Coaching Moves

So far Kent State is proving my original post correct. Who are they looking at? Ohio State assistants, Marcus Freeman (played at Ohio State, assistant defensive coach at Cincinnati, bingo!), Scott Schafer (defensive assistant), and Minnesota's run game coordinator / OL-coach. Shocker! The best optio...

Re: Coaching Moves

Some of the late-stage coaching movement makes me wonder if Chip Kelly is kicking himself for jumping back in so soon. If he had waited a little bit, Florida State would have been open, and then if he didn't want to take that job, Oregon may have opened back up :lol:

Re: Coaching Moves

I wouldn't be on the Willie Taggart train if I were Florida State. Seems like a decent coach, but he hasn't taken a team to the promised land yet. If I were FSU and I couldn't afford to screw up a coaching search, I want a guy who has won at an elite level. Taggart has been consistently good, but no...

Re: MT West

If that's the case, then it's a totally stupid rule. Home field should be decided by conference record, then head-to-head as the tiebreaker, and then go down the list if they haven't played each other yet. I understand why the AAC, C-USA, and MWC have home field for the championship games. The teams...

Re: Praying for a sequence...will get Donovan to rant

Exactly, it's totally selective memory. Ole Miss gets thrashed by (Big 12-version) TCU in the Peach Bowl, nobody holds that against Ole Miss next year. They forgive and forget. Ole Miss can take care of business the following season and people will treat them like a demigod SEC program. A non-BCSer ...

Re: Coaching Moves

Why would the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, The Ohio State University, and the University of Tennessee hire a person who had that kind of baggage if it wasn't easily dismissed hearsay? You think they want that on their plate? Instead Tennessee didn't estimate the level of social media outrage of the week, a...

Re: Coaching Moves

I like how people who weren't there when things supposedly happen "just know" x, y, and z to be the case. To positively claim that Schiano covered that up requires intimate knowledge of the details, something zero of those protesters had. They just heard some allegations (and not even alle...

Re: Coaching Moves

This would be my annual post wishing June Jones would come back to college football, but he hates recruiting and took over a winless CFL team and actually posted a winning record after he became the interim head coach. So he's perfect for the CFL and Hawaii will never see Jones roaming the sideline ...

So Todd Graham is out at Arizona State. Kevin Sumlin will be the odds-on favorite to take that job, I'm sure. He's on track to get fired soon and he's always been on Arizona State's wish list. Which leaves A&M open and for some reason the grumblings suggest that they want Jimbo Fisher. I don't k...

Re: Praying for a sequence...will get Donovan to rant

I'm not advocating UCF to go to the playoff, I just think they belong in a NY6 game if they win the American. My point is that in those BCS/NY6 games, the mid-majors and the latter-day AAC actually have an extremely strong record. Because you're not inviting the MAC-as-a-whole, you're inviting the b...

Re: Tennessee vs Vandy

I think you're basically correct, Fluiddude, about the Tennessee job, but a great coach could resurrect that place. It's not like the SEC East is setting the world on fire right now. And with respect to Nebraska, I think the Huskers would be amazing with Scott Frost. But I agree there aren't too man...

Re: Blue vs OSU

Who wouldn't want to come to Michigan as a stud QB? Free playing time because of your awful competition at a prestige program and a great school on a team that is a QB away from doing some special things. I realize Michigan is now an afterthought since high schoolers can't even remember when Michiga...

Re: Blue vs OSU

There are some little birdies out there thinking Shea Patterson might come to Michigan. His family is from Toledo and are apparently Wolverine fans. Patterson has a great arm and is extremely mobile, would be an obvious and instant upgrade in the best way imaginable. He's exactly who I'd be looking ...
