Seriously…does anyone want to coach Michigan?

This morning’s report that Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano has decided to stay at Rutgers instead of accepting the open job at Michigan has to be disheartening for the big blue alumni and fans. Even before Lloyd Carr’s retirement presser it was a foregone conclusion that LSU’s Les Miles would jump at the chance to coach at his Alma mater. Last weekend that idea hit a serious snag. Miles decided the grass wasn’t greener in Michigan. His contract extension reported yesterday pretty much slammed the door on any return to groundhog country.

The man on the left is Iowa’s coach Kirk Ferentz. He was or wasn’t a serious candidate for the position as well. That depends who you talk to. According to the Detroit News however, he is no longer being considered. Could he be the third candidate to say thanks, but no thanks to what was called by many to be “the best coaching job in the country”? Actually, the first man to say no thank you would have been Stanford coach, and UM grad Jim Harbaugh, but let’s be real, he wasn’t going to be a candidate anyway. Continue reading

Too…much…happening…

Wow. So the Buckeyes have knocked Lloyd Carr out of a job, the Browns swept the season series against the Ravens, and I get to write a guest post on a Michigan site. Things are looking pretty good today.

So I wrote the wager post for Ghosts, we’ll send along a link when we see it up there. John is itching to write a Browns post, so we’ll defer to him. I will say this team is still quite immature. How scary will they be when they get it together?

The Buckeyes appear headed to Pasadena for only the second time in 20 years. Can that be right? It jut doesn’t seem possible that the last time we went to the Rose Bowl was Joe Germaine and the gang against Jake the Snake Plummer. I’m looking forward to it. And we’ll let Jeff from the Buckeye Battle Cry be the team cheerleader for the BCS title game. I prefer to be pleasantly surprised if they get there.

Lloyd Carr has stepped down. What will his legacy be? Well, I think it is quite simple really. Lloyd Carr > John Cooper. Jim Tressel > LLoyd Carr. That about sums it up I think. In the history of The Rivalry, Lloyd will now be linked with John Cooper. As good as Lloyd Carr looked when Cooper couldn’t get the job done, he looks that bad today. This group of seniors even came back to ensure that Carr’s legacy wasn’t tarnished. He had the more experienced group, playing at home, and he still lost. Todd Boeckman looked absolutely terrible. You can blame the weather if you want, but truth is he had that deer in the headlights look. No way he was going to make plays to win that game. He attempted 2 passes in the second half. His longest pass of the day was 15 yards! Despite that, the Wolverines couldn’t beat the Buckeyes. Continue reading

Real Men of Genius- Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan

UPDATE: It’s funny, we’ve been getting a lot of hits from Michigan Facebook users on this one. If you are featured in one of the pictures we’d love to talk to you, maybe even offer you a Halftime Adjustments shirt for your infamy. Many of you are keep trying to tell me this was originally a Notre Dame thing, or I have facts incorrect. You know what? It was sent to me in an email after you losers got beat by App State and Oregon. Truth is I don’t care where it came from. It’s true of both Notre Dame and Michigan. Have a nice day, and maybe you shouldn’t be so concerned with a post I made 2 months ago. Bye bye. Have a good game against Wisconsin. Sure would be a pity if you lost that one too.

Just in case you haven’t seen this yet…

Tradition: A College Football Tradition

logojohn.jpg

For around half a century Notre Dame and Michigan have met on the football field. Some games have meant more than others. Some games have been more important to one team or the other, but I don’t think there has been a game that has meant more to the individual coaches. This may also be the only game this year where I will be cheering for the Irish. Continue reading
