Has he won a single big game?

 

 

Yes, in his first season, Michigan beat #19 Florida 41-7 in the 2016 Citrus Bowl.  It’s been downhill ever since.  Four straight bowl game losses, no victories over Ohio State, and going 3-3 against Michigan State is not going to satisfy Michigan fans.  Even including three victories over the Spartans as “Big games” creates a dilemma for the Wolverines.  On the one hand, they do not want to elevate the status of MSU by describing those as “Big” games.  On the other hand, how do they explain a 3-3 record against “little brother?”

He just hasn't gotten it done. A great storied program that's been down for several years now. I think it's time for the Wolverines to move on.

The Detroit news is saying Jim will re-sign with Michigan with a 5 year deal, but a pretty good pay cut.

The article (linked a few posts earlier) says,  ”Extension would be heavy on incentives with lower base pay.”

 

If that’s correct, that seems appropriate.  He certainly hasn’t earned his salary over the last six years.

Fields is good to go Monday night but as usual Covid is coming into play.  Lips are sealed but the word is Coach Day is having a heck of a time putting a game plan together that he's happy with.  It's going to involve parental sign offs and player sign offs w/the B1G Conference since their testing program is different than Bama's.  Don't know which skill set has it but I sure hope it's not the O-line.  Harry Martin was the only positive before Clemson but IF the rest of them have it now it won't be pretty for Fields.  He'll just have to take it to another level, which, as you saw, he's capable of. 

 

Saban will go into the game knowing which position group will be playing second team players.  He prolly knows already.  He won't feel sorry for OSU after what happened when Elliott ran thru the heart of the South  in the Superdome a few years ago.  IF the covid is that bad it could be a looooong nite for the Buckeyes.  They're still on a mission and mistakes can be costly.  Could be some surprises but we'll see what shakes out.  Next man up!

The rumor is that the Patriots are interested in Fields, and they have the 15th pick.

A replacement for Brady?  He's gonna go before 15.  Maybe they'll take Olave too.  THAT would be crazy but the Patriot connection is there with OSU.

I'm guessing you don't watch a lot of pro football. Let me get you caught up. Brady is now with the Bucs, Cam Newton was qb for the patriots this season.

Yea JL, I know where Brady is.  lol  Tom Brady was a member of TTUN.  The only guy to ever sack him twice in the same game was James Cotton from OSU.  Wife's not too shabby either.  Belichick/Newton?  Yea, Bill's shopping but Fields will be long gone unless they do some swappin.  Hence the "replacement for Brady."  Coupled with a good Gronk "clone" he'd have the combo he so needs again and the long ball.  Perhaps the biggest mistake the Browns ever made imo was getting rid of Belichick in Cleveland.  His dad was a great coach too.

It's the greatest weekend +1 of the year.  Six NFL playoff games and the collegiate national championship on Monday.

 

Saturday at Morgantown in college basketball WVU #14 plays Texas #4 at 1p. 

 

Go Mountaineers, Buckeyes and Steelers!

Covid 19 has insured a cheap victory for the Steelers.
