Thank God we unloaded Mike DeBord on UM (offensive Coordinator). He was the UM assistant CMU hired away from UM. He ran Central's program into the dirt. We were ranked 117 out of 121 Division 1 colleges, so we fired him. UM then decides to rehire him. If they didn't have all the talent that money could buy, they would not have even contended for the Big 10 crown. Time for a change at the Big House.
