|Do Michigan Men use finga-gunz???|
So I think that most of us realize that the whole RichRod experiment is not going to work and that it will likely end at some point this season. They aren't going bowling. That is for certain. It's time to treat this era of football like Michigan treats the Fab Five years of hoops...sweep it under the rug and act like it never happened. But where does Michigan go from here? Do they bring in another coach with a wide open spread offense? Is Michigan still a destination job? Does Lloyd Carr need his diaper changed? Nate B asked me to write up a post regarding the next Go Blue coach yesterday in the comments and his request has been approved. Sort of.
The hot name out there is Mike Leach. He is going to be rumored at EVERY vacancy. He's just sitting around, reading books about pirates, and scouting players to lock in his storage shed. You know, what good coaches are wont to do. He's biding his time waiting for the right job to take. There is no doubt that the man can coach. Texas Tech was fucking horrible before he swashbuckled his ass to Lubbock. Would Michigan go after Leach?
Well, the Craig James controversy shouldn't bother UM. Their current coach makes Bobby Petrino and Rick Pitino look like stand-up guys. At least Leach's issue was concerning discipline of a pussy ass faggot. By the way, he should have never been fired for that either. I would think that the players that Rodriguez has brought in over the past three years could ease into Leach's not that similar but not that different system. Leach graduates players (BIG deal at UM). Sure, he has an ego but it's no worse than any other successful coach's. Michigan has to at least kick the tires on Leach. I think that they should go balls to the wall after him. He's a big time name that has built programs up from the ashes. I don't think that any Michigan fan would be against bringing Leach in for the 2011 season. If they are, fuck 'em. This is the kind of guy that a fan base can get really fucking pumped up about.
But would Leach go there? That's where it gets tricky. Leach is a fucking weirdo so who knows what he would do. This is what I do know though. His pass-happy offense isn't going to look so great once November rolls around. The defenses in the Big Ten actually have a pulse. The alumni are going to expect him to win big and soon (something that he didn't have to deal with at Tech). He is most definitely NOT a "Michigan Man". Is that enough to turn him/UM away?
When it comes down to it, I see Michigan offering Leach the job early in December. I also see Leach declining it. It's pretty hard to be a pirate in Ann Arbor. Butt pirating is easy up there though.
Michigan will end up seeing their next coach winning in their house on Labor Day weekend as it will be UConn head man, Randy Edsall. That's my pick and it makes sense. UM's old alums can get back to rooting for boring ass football. They love that shit. Almost as much as they love creamed corn. Two straight posts that are anti-Michigan? I need to come strong with some anOSU hate next week.
What do you think? Who is coaching at Michigan in 2011?
