re: One thing is certain, this whole thing is fluid . . . - loopy
Latest here from AA: (and know that Brandon leaks nothing, so this is all someone's conjecture) Brandon and JH are talking today. Brandon's comments at the presser firing RR and naming JH and saying he was likely going to the NFL seemed to have unleashed a deluge of alums, former players and team...

re: Learjet from UM just landed at BTR - loopy

re: Learjet from UM just landed at BTR - loopy
Funny, but useless. When the stadium floor was lowered to increase the sightlines for the lower rows, grass, although tried, is not practical. UM stadium has an underground spring that runs underneath it. The floor is now too close (remember all the clumps of sod flying up during the mid-late 90'...

Ok than plane you are seeing is not UM's, but owned by a private individual. Still not difinitive, but less threatening. [link=(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfggvrTOJ3Y)]UM Plane[/link]...

re: Learjet from UM just landed at BTR - loopy
Doesn't the rest of that flt info say that the plane is leaving shortly for Hilton Head? Short stop over! But it says our man is on the job, which is good news for us anyway. But, the mood in AA is that Les is not the guy. The fans are very cool to him now and he is 57. The best he could do for...

re: Anybody following the Michigan PC? - loopy
Brandon has had a lot to deal with since coming in March. Of course the FB program was front and center, but BB was troubled as well, and Hockey is facing a coaching change in the near term as well. Brandon has been handed a lot of nice new facilities, along with a mountain of debt that paid for t...

re: Anybody following the Michigan PC? - loopy
How we got here is now irrelevant, unless the next step is to fire Brandon for his "process." His remarks did not even focus on Mich Man as a criteria, but did not rule out hiring one either. What I took away is that he thinks (underscore "he thinks") that this thing is broken in a way that won't ...

re: So basically, if UM doesn't make the hire before Friday night... - loopy
I am not implying that RR will not be let go, but since the schedule of events is changing, it does seem something may be up, just no idication what that is. It may just be that Brandon wants to tell RR in private and then the two meet with the team at 7 PM as planned so they know and can ask quest...

re: So basically, if UM doesn't make the hire before Friday night... - loopy
Further, HOKE is done with his season. You would expect a bang-bang kinda event with RR leaving and a quick HOKE introduction. Anyone have info that HOKE is on a flight from SD to AA, or already in AA. Not even a peep here about that happening....

Gentlemen. There is no opening at UM yet. RR and Brandon have not yet met. The meeting has been delayed and moved from the AD offices to Brandon's home. per UM beat writer A. Chengelis who spoke with Rita Rodriguez at her home....

re: College Football Vacancy/Hot Seat Thread - loopy
Whoa nelly. RR is not fired! The 2PM meeting has been delayed and will not take place in the AD offices but at Brandon's home. That does not change the strong sentiment that he will be let go, but the media has jumped the gun beacuse the two haven't even talked yet. That per UM beat writer A. Ch...

re: What is Michigan waiting for? Rich Rod's buyout has dropped - loopy
There is a UM team meeting (was already scheduled before the bowl game) for Tues 1/4 at 7 AM. I don't think Brandon has been idle for this "quiet period" just evaluating RR. Any CEO has a list of 5 replacements for his top guys, Brandon has those lists for all his head coaching jobs. I supect eac...

re: So the future of LSU football depends on Hoke (to UM) - loopy
If you look at any good team, they likely also have a very experienced team. If I recall TCU has 3/5 OL seniors and 3/4 on the DL. In fact they will lose a lot next year. And like FLA, when you have youth and inexperience you are vulnerable...mistakes, technique, playing under pressure all play h...

re: So the future of LSU football depends on Hoke (to UM) - loopy
Since no one who knows (neither Brandon or Harbaugh has spoken or been cited as a source), then all is still speculation. Let me add that current local talk is that maybe Pat Fitzgerald of N'Western may be in the running. Impeccable personal and professional resume, young, defensive mind who also ...

re: Consensus is that Miles stays ? (no Mich) - loopy
Not so much scoff at LM, but there is real concern about what happens now. There is limited trust with this new AD. Yes, he is a quality CEO and has cleaned up the Ath Dept and polished the brand (Big Chill, night game vs ND next year, etc.) a bit, but he has not made any significant hire, so ther...

re: Consensus is that Miles stays ? (no Mich) - loopy
I don't get the whole "Harbaugh said about UM.." objection. He was a student athlete, for his own experience he felt his student development was not handled correctly and commented on it. I can assure you Bo would have only taken exception with the public airing of the issue, not the issue itself....

re: Consensus is that Miles stays ? (no Mich) - loopy
The challenge with Les Miles in 2007 was he was going to the SEC title game and possibly to the NC. Bill Martin, not the guy you want picking coaches for you by the way, should have just asked. But, he waited for the "moment" post SEC title game when he felt it would be more appropriate. That kin...

re: Robert Smith is claiming this is it for Rich Rod - loopy
Likewise, the fanbase here is clueless if it is not Harbaugh. Two others do come to mind though: Mike Trgovac (current DC for the MINN Vikings, former UM middle guard under BO) and a guy LSU knows, Doug Mallory, current DC at New Mexico, former DB under Bo....

re: Foley said he expects to have a head coach in place by end of month. - loopy
Any candidate would be well served by talking with Meyer first. His relations with Foley (tumultuous at best) are fundamental to his leaving. Any coach would have an easier path to the BCS and likely NC (since all you have to do is go 12-0, not who you play) through NB (in the now weakened B12) or...
