Harbaugh to the 49ers, Yost to the fetal position

He's going to the NFL.

Pressure on Brandon goes all the way to 11, which is more pressure because it's one bigger than 10.

Boehner chokes up after learning Harbaugh won't be coming to A2

Pardon me while I go throw up, then pour myself a stiff drink.

Why hasn't anyone been talking about hiring Mike Singletary as coach? Bet that D would shape up pretty fast, and elite athletes would be knocking on the door to play for him ...

Yost,

Relax...I'm not panicking yet. Yes, Harbaugh was the number 1 guy, but if he didn't want to come here, maybe it was a sign? If Miles shoots us down, well, then I'm nervous. Miles can fix things. Brady Hoke? Okay...Panic....

Yost said...

MMQ,

I'm WAY more panicked about Miles. The latest over-signing BS that ESPN did the big story on says a lot about why he didn't get a call in '07.

Yost,

I am with you; I don't think I can take another investigation, violation etc.

Speaking of violation, I feel violated by JH.

Have a good weekend - I will be drinking single malt and listening to Josh Groban while looking alot like John Boehner.

Yost, now is the time for Hitler's rant.

I remember Bo telling a story of two recruits with only one open scholarship. The phenom (Harbaugh) could not make up his mind between UM and ND. The lineman (Hoke) wanted UM with all his heart, soul and mind, didn't want anyone else. After a while Bo thought that saying he couldn't choose was as good as saying no to UM and he told the Kid to go to ND. He called the lineman who lived and breathed UM and told him to come on, don't remember his name. Turns out the phenom was a bust and the lineman turns into an all american, look up the story in the book Bo. Maybe Hoke wouldn't be so bad. See Jason Whitlock's story on Foxsports.com about Hoke. Good stuff and Whitlock doesn't like anyone.

boy, is this fun, or what?

just keep saying it yourself- Head Coach Brady Hoke. it's almost melodic!

I'll be watching to see if there is any "eating of the grass tonight".... Scary very scary.

Bill Conti is really an LSU alum?

this pregame may be actually worse than our coaching situation.

ooh. here's a question- which is the better career opportunity? open job @ Michigan? or Stanford?

Rick said...

KC Keeler should be MICHIGAN's next head coach. He's been successful, albeit at the D1AA level (don't forget that's the league where "the vest" came from), he's young, his teams run the spread, he's a fiery guy, he can recruit...

StClairShoresBLUE said...

They have wings too. Does that make him a Michigan Man?

Rick said...

St.Clair - no that does not him a Michigan Man. He did however play for Tubby Raymond at Delaware. Tubby Raymond IS a Michigan Man. He played QB for Coach Fritz Crisler...you may have heard of him. When Coach Raymond went to Delaware he coached the offensive backfield for Coach David Nelson. Coach David Nelson is ALSO a Michigan Man. He also played for Coach Crisler and was a teammate of Tom Harmon, quite possibly the GREATEST Michigan Man.

That is all.

Sometimes I think when all the Bobbleheads say that a certain team should do this or that, that certain team should do something completely different. I would seriously hope that Brandon would look past Harbaugh, Hoke or Miles and find a diamond in the rough like Tressel. I think the big names are only going to bring us more disappointment. Harbaugh doesn't want to come here...screw him. The more negativity I hear about Hoke from the fan base the more I think we would end up with another situation like Rich Rod. And Miles with all the scholarship stuff, the last thing we need is more scandal. My choice would be Niumatolo, he's young and while he doesn't run a vibrant offense, its an effective offense. And you can't argue about Navy's tackling. My other choice would be either a Div IAA or II coach that has shown some degree of success at that level. Barring that, a MAC coach (but not English).

Hang in there Yost! You're made of better stuff than that! And the rest of you, no more talk of drowning oneself in the toilet or drinking oneself to oblivion... well, only if you enjoy those things... anyway.... we are Michigan, we will endure and emerge victorious once again! Although I fear that will take even longer without RR.
....love to be wrong.....hope to be wrong....

Thanks for the history lesson Rick. Sarcastic statements will now be typed in italics or parenthesis.
