What The Heck Is A Michigan Man?


Bo Schembechler

Let’s begin…

So Rich Rodriguez got fired twice by Michigan this week (his firing originally surfaced Tuesday thought the Detroit Free Press. Michigan denied the reports, and the next day they fired Rich Rod). That was cold blooded. I think he should have gotten fired two and a half. The last half was uncalled for.

Rodriguez never fit at Michigan. In college sports your coach has to be a representation of what your school stands for. From his spread offense to the teary-eyed speech at the team banquet. Rich Rod never said Michigan Football. A school like Michgan is hard to break into as an outsider. There’s too much tradition and too many old people longing for the way things use to be. If you’re going to be different you better produce, and even then you’re never fully accepted, just ask Les Miles (He has a national title and wins 10 games every year, yet everyone at LSU can’t stand him). Some would argue that only a “Michigan Man” can succeed at Michigan.

Alright, this whole Michigan Man thing is a crock. First off Bo Schembechler (he established the term Michigan Man) wasnt even from Michigan. As a matter of fact Shembechuler received a degree from Ohio State which is the opposite of Michigan. That’s like saying, “We need an actor” and you hire a porn star. If you win games no one cares who you are or where you came from.

Part of me wants to say, “Michigan…you’re Michigan! Why are you even looking for coaches? Coaches look for you.” Michigan is the winningest program in the country. This isn’t Notre Dame longing for the past, or the University of Miami who was a flash in the pan. This is Michigan…best job in the country.

The Big Ten is a conference that is struggling to remain elite. They need the University of Michigan in order to be a great conference. It has been widely reported that Michigan would like to hire Jim Harbaugh. A good coach who played at the University of Michigan (He also fulfills their “We Need A Michigan Man Theory”). I hope they get Harbaugh, but if they don’t. Remember the times of Bo Schembechler and hire somebody that will win.

Kortney Shane’s College Football Preview: Week 2


The Game of The Week Will Be in The Horseshoe

Let’s begin…

Review

    “Boise State and their Cinderella story lives to fight another day.” What? I saw the game on Monday night. I had some food to eat, I had some drinks, so I could have been a little sleepy, but I didn’t see a Cinderella team on the field. They were wearing those weird Cinderella like uniforms, but you can’t let that throw you off. A Cinderella doesn’t go undefeated for 2 years, and win an opening day road game in front of 90,000 people. What I saw Monday night was a BCS contender. Now I did pick Virginia Tech to win the game, but I was wrong. Boise State is a better team than Virginia Tech, and they proved that in D.C. on Monday night.

    I was also somewhat impressed by Notre Dame. I don’t know if I was impressed as much as I was surprised. They had an offensive game plan. I haven’t seen them have a game plan for 4 years. Good for Notre Dame. Hopefully the next time I’m surprised it’s because you beat a team that was actually good.

Preview

    So this week in college football there are great power teams in action. You have Michigan v. Notre Dame. That game has some baggage attached to it. If Michigan can win that game Rich Rodriguez will probably keep his job. At the same time, if Notre Dame wins Brian Kelly might get a lifetime contract. By the way where is Michigan’s quarterback from? Dude doesn’t tie his shoes. He’s probably from some place where they chase rabbits for fun. Penn Sate v Alabama could be an upset, however it’s more likely to be a massacre. My game of the week is Miami v. Ohio State.

Breakdown

    Someone is going to pass a test this week. Will Ohio State step up, and prove they have a big game team after recent years of disappointment. Will Miami’s young talented team pull an upset, and propel themselves into National title contention. For Ohio State this game comes down to expectations. “Can you live up to being a favorite?” The Buckeyes have better players in every position, a better coach, and home field advantage. For Miami you have to have composer in a hostile environment. The Hurricanes need to play out of their minds. They can’t get caught up in everything surround the game. They must run the ball, and focus on getting first downs. However that mind friend, will not happen. Miami is young, inexperienced, and they’re going to “The Horseshoe.” That’s a bad combination. You may be “The U” but you won’t beat “The” Ohio State University.

Ohio State wins, 31 -17.
