Watching Michigan is like taking a time machine back to 2007 and watching my team, Notre Dame. Brady Hoke is definitely Michigan's Charlie Weis. Though I cannot stand Michigan I do feel their pain. They have to find the right coach. Honestly after seeing Arizona beat Oregon for the second year in a row it looks like they messed up firing Rich Rod.

Yeah. It is.

I just know that if my alma mater started chucking booster money around, pushing bad actions under the rug, hiring prostitutes to blow prospects when they visit and all that stuff....it wouldn't exactly make me proud.

Here's looking at you Harvard, enjoying those NCAA visits?

Getting there isn't good enough though. Going to need to get some of those deep pocket alums to start shelling the cash for the better players.

Then you need some fake classes or lean on teachers that aren't with the program etc.

Seriously, what a crock.

An outsider, here, remembers the stories about Michigan folk wanting a 'Michigan Man'. It's unfortunate that Hoke has not turned out good results!

Coach Rodriguez was warmly welcomed at Arizona, and they've totally embraced his football philosophy. Both the community and the university need to be on the same page for any success.

Ohio State has had no problem selling out the newly expanded 106,000 Horseshoe.
Alabama has had no issues selling out 101,000 seat Bryan Denny Stadium

But Tennessee can't sell out 102,500 Seat Neland Stadium and that school up north can't sell out the 109,901 seat Outhouse...I dont' think there is any problem at all getting students to go to games where the problem lies is getting students to go see a terrible product on the field. If you have a fun team to watch, that wins games, you'll sell out.

Getting a new AD I see.

Interesting if that changes the tide that started before this AD.

The SEC is pulling in the athletes that the Big 10 and Big 12 used to get.
