    Sounds like Iowa might be looking for a new S&C coach...the staff and AD are apparently super pissed at him for this.

    Also, wasn't Barwis the reason Boren bolted for OSU? Because he couldn't handle the workouts because he was a wuss or something like that...
    no Boren left because Rod wouldn't let him go help his dad shovel snow or something.

      Ah. I just vaguely remember some of the transfers, and the responses being like they were afraid of competition or don't want to work hard or something.

      Michigan friends, any updates on how the fanatics on certain websites are taking to this new recruiting concept of actually getting recruits? Are they not even D3 worthy and Hoke is terrible yet?

        can't visit mgblog personally (says the site has malware), but the staff has won over a lot of people with their plan. While the recruits aren't blue chippers, I personally am under the impression these guys are trying harder to recruit than the old regime ever did.

          Yea, I haven't really looked at what Hoke has done too much other than some of the hirings, but I'm already more worried about facing his teams than RichRod's. Hoke might actually seem to understand what it takes to rebuild the foundation of a program, rather than just plug and play and expect results.

          I think Michigan is on the right path with this hire (so far).

          • Aww it's so cute that other fans are saying that this happened because Iowa supplies their players with roids, because it happened to 12 players at once and not just 1 or 2.

            Yes, because Iowa only gave 12 players roids, 25% of which have been confirmed to not be starters on the team. One would think if it was because of roids, there would be more than 12 players being given the drugs and/or they would be, you know, players that actuall are going to play.

            Iowa: where we give only players that don't affect the outcome of the game drugs that will enhance their performance.

            • We'll be alright.

              Doyle isn't going anywhere. This is kind of wild though.

                Wild isn't the term I'd use. I'd say it's pretty scary that this could happen when all indications are that the S&C staff was present and the cause of everything. Hopefully something happens to ensure that this will never happen again...

                • A bunch of young kids in their first off-season work-outs worked out a little too hard. If anything it's an indication of your youth being soft.

                    That too, but I've only seen 3 freshman mentioned so far and Bernstein. There's still 8 other players left...were they all freshman? Will we ever find out? Berstein wasn't going through his first off season work out. And why wasn't it the entire freshman class that this happened to?

                    There's just way too many questions about what happened at this point to definitively blame one side or the other. This should never happen regardless of whether or not it's a kid's first workout. The S&C staff should know the limits and that not all players are going to be able to do the same workload. Is it an indication that some of these players can't handle a work load? Sure. But at that point the question should be raised whether they are prepared for this level of athletics, and the S&C should know not to push them especially in their first off season work outs. It's just simple common sense.

                      There are no droids.

                        These are not the droids you are looking for.


                        Sig by me... Hold the applause.

                            No, Boren left because he didn't want to be part of the joke that Michigan Football has become since RR was hired.

                            The snow and the barwis thing are just 2 things Michigan fans made up to cope.

                              Yep. Probably the same people that loved the RichRod hire. There were a lot of them.

                              • Maybe that's what Boren is telling people, but that's not the truth either. He didn't even give Rod a chance. He quit less than two weeks into Spring practices. Sorry, but I don't believe Boren can see into the future. Nine spring practices wasn't enough to tell him that Michigan football was going to be completely irrelevant for the next three years.
