Stadium and Main: Just a few quick things...

Monday, September 03, 2007

Just a few quick things...

More coming in the next few days, but...

1 - Mike Hart deserved better.

2 - wcmartin@umich.edu ... If you don't know whose address that is, you might want to familiarize yourself with it (and him) over the next 4 months or so. Word on the street is that he locked his inbox over the weekend. Sweet! Tedford, Stoops, Schiano, Petersen (Boise), Johnson (Navy), Rodriguez, Richt, Tenuta, Brian Kelly... Just a few of the names that Mr. Martin needs to start researching, like, now. Call me naive if you want, but I'd rather attempt to have my voice heard than sit back quietly and hope that Martin makes the right hire.

3 - Appalachian State deserved to win. Congrats to them and their fans, who many said were the loudest visiting fans at the Big House ever (for real).

4 - Could we not see this coming?
9/21/02 – 10-7 win over Utah.

9/18/04 – 24-21 win over San Diego State.

11/4/06 – 34-26 win over Ball State.
And more than a few games where we were in a dogfight with "mediocre Team X" in the 3rd Quarter, but ended up winning by 10 or so. The writing was on the wall. This wasn't a fluke, it was just a loss instead of a narrow victory.

5 - One message board poster summed up many fans’ mentality in one sentence:

“Lloyd's regime has made me dread losses rather than anticipate wins.”

6 - Here’s the text of the e-mail I sent to my Uncle Dave on Saturday. Sometimes your first reaction says it best:
Date: Sat, 1 Sep 2007 20:41:48 -0400
Subject: Horrible.

Carr will retire at the end of the year and then, and only then, will we see what this program can do. New blood is needed. DeBord is just like Carr. English has been figured out. The program is stale and predictable. We need some new life. Later...Nick.

I like Miles from LSU as our next head coach.

I sent him an email with my thoughts, it went through. Good job finding it. I told him that things need to change now before we end up like Alabama or Florida State.

what are the odds Carr steps down before the season is over?

Odds are Lloyd stepping down will never happen. Retirement; yes. Mid-season retirement; no.

And Miles would be a great choice so long as he brings his defensive mentality with him. All reports dtate that he'd take the job.

I don't think Lloyd will resign during the year. I think he'll retire at the end of the season. Can I guarantee that? Nope. That's why I'm making sure to write to those in charge.

FWIW, I think the next coach will either be Ferentz or Miles.
