I look back at some of those teams with all that NFL talent and constant 8-4 or 9-3 records and wonder WTF?
Better question. With all of those accounts, how is it that you still suck wet butthole as a poster?
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
There HAS to be an IP ban feature available to the 247 mods, right?
Well I will tell you this .... I would of loved to have Lloyd Carr from 2007-2010. How about you? Lloyd Carr will always be a great coach imo! I can't understand why a lot of people rag on him, sure he had some tough moments, but what coach doesn't, he led a clean program and was very successful. So to answer your question, yes I enjoyed the years Lloyd was here!
Carr was a good coach. I wouldn't say great.
"suck wet buthole"
Oh, you have over 19K posts. Explains everything.
Wow, that's a serious case of swamp ass.
The troll is prolly an Ohio fan iyam.
Yes, I'm a mod with over 19k posts(most of those are just post padding).
I completely agree with the 07-10 comment. I don't agree with the great coach tag. He had loads and loads of talent and could barely find a way to win the Big 10. He should have been in the national championship picture almost every year but that only happened a couple times.
Then he left with barely 50 scholarship players in the fold for the new coaching staff. I was not impressed with that at all, in fact it still pisses me off just writing about it. However he is a good man and a Michigan man and he graduated and cared for his players.
It had it's ups and downs
Huh? When Carr left there were 61 scholarship players returning for 2008, plus he had a recruiting class of 18 commits in mid-November. Anyone who transfered or decommited after he retired is not his fault.
First part of the era was cool; last part was bleh.
When he left the cupboard was bare. We are still not nearly deep enough at certain positions. I don't know where you got 61 I remember 51.
The cupboard was not bare. The players did not fit Rich Rod's schemes, that was the problem, not that the players were not talented.
Whatever you guys want to think. We were starting a walk-on quarterback? We went from beating Florida in a bowl, the team that went on to win the national championship the next year. Do you remember what are record was? 3-9 with all of that talent he left behind. Carr stopped recruiting the last couple years that is no secret, and he left very little for the new regime.
Everyone seems to forget that RR ran off one of the best college QBs in the country. At least Carr had us poised to have 3 years of Ryan Mallett.
Very little? How about you take the time and look back on the recruiting classes Michigan was pulling in before RR was hired. To say that there was a lack of talent is ignorant. The talent was there, the players just didn't fit RR's schemes and that has nothing to do with what Lloyd left.
Are you sure it was RR and not Lloyd, I seem to remember the running off was done before RR. Why would a new coach run off a 5* quarterback to start a walk-on. Come-on, aren't you the logic master?
RR made no effort to retain Ryan Mallett.
Carr got really lazy with recruiting in his last few years. After Henne, Long, Hart and those boys left the talent level behind them was embarrassing.
RR was quoted as saying he couldn't believe the lack of talent and speed when he got here.
Of course, the App St game was the beginning of the end. I still can't figure out how Carr let that game happen.
Team rankings the three years leading up to Rich Rod's first season (Rivals) I'll toss in 2008 in there too.
2005: #6 in the nation
2006: #13 in the nation
2007: #12 in the nation
2008: #10 in the nation
Rich Rod was just a shit coach at Michigan, there was no lack of talent at any point.
I don't believe that for a second, sounds like the kool-aid talking.
Sounds like you are sipping some kool-aid if you don't believe that.
Why haven't you responded to my talent post? Because you were proven wrong?
Why did the number of NFL players significantly decrease after 2007? We had at least 10 NFL players on the 2007 team. How many on the 2008, 2009, 2010? I bet it wasn't 10 if you combined all three years. Must be coincidence.
This is not entirely correct.
Look at the attrition from those classes.
Rich Rod is not a good coach but there was a sizable talent gap. However, Denard was able to hide a number of those deficiencies until the conference schedule.

This. Attrition killed what looked to be solid recruiting classes.
