Little off season trash talk wink.gif

We all know the Weasels like to brag about being the winningest program in college football, right? Well just how did the get all those wins? I got this off another site I frequent.

16 of those wins (and, one loss!) are against Albion College.
3 of those wins are against Beloit College of Wisconsin.
5 of those wins are against Kalamazoo College.
7 of those wins are against Mount Union College of Ohio.
26 of those wins are against Case Institute of Technology in Ohio.
3 of those wins are against DePauw.
6 of those wins are against Eastern Michigan.
9 of those wins are against Oberlin College.
2 of those wins are against the Illinois College of Physicians and Surgeons.
2 of those wins are against the Windsor Club of Canada.
2 of those wins are against Ohio Wesleyan.
2 of those wins are against the Michigan Military Academy.
3 of those wins are against Ohio Northern.
2 of those wins are against Wittenberg College of Ohio.
2 of those wins are against Olivet College.
5 of those wins are against the Detroit Athletic Club.
2 of those wins are against the Great Lakes Naval Training Station.
2 of those wins are against Hillsdale College.

And, the Champions Of The West count a win each against:
Adelbert College of Ohio
Adrian College
American Medical of Illinois
Ann Arbor High School
Butler
Camp Grant
Carroll College of Wisconsin
Chicago Harvard Club
Chicago University Club (not to be confused with the University of Chicago, a charter member of the Big Ten)
Denison College of Ohio
Detroit Industrial Team
Ferris State
Grand Rapids High School
Iowa Navy Pre-Flight
Kenyon College of Ohio
Lake Forest College of Illinois
Lake Forest/Rush Medical of Illinois
Lawrence College of Wisconsin
Peninsular Club of Michigan
Quantico Marines
Racine College of Wisconsin
University of Toronto
Wabash College of Indiana.

Leaders and the best, my ass wink.gif


Take away all of those wins, and Michigan has over 730 wins--only 8 teams have as many or more. Take away all the comparable level opponents for those teams, and Michigan is still well in front of the others.

Yep, new Dolphins head coach. Stupid move for the Dolphins if you ask me!

Aaron Downey tally = 4 Wins (Mclaren, PARROS, *Laperriere*, Wisniewski) - 1 L (**Boll**) - 5 Draws (Walker, Fedoruk, Davison, Shelley, O'Donnell)

(* = beatdown) (** = at the end of a shift)

Preseason prediction - Anaheim over Philadelphia in 6 (ok, well i'll settle for one right...)

Didn't Cam Cameron used to coach Indiana and completely suck at it? IU was horrible during the Cameron years. Why would we want him?

I think I'd like the replacement to be English, personally.

Yes, but you have to take in consideration that it's Indiana. Cameron had a great offense with the Chargers the last few years.

Yeah but that could easily be a case of good coordinator/bad head coach. I bet Cameron sucks at Miami.

Cameron had friggin' LaDanian Tomlinson and Drew Brees, who proved his worth by leading the Saints this year. Cameron having bad teams at IU proves this: he can't recruit, and he couldn't take advantage of the one really good player he did have, Antwaan Randle El.

No one can recruit at Indiana. The last person to recruit at IU well was probably Lee Corso, but you're right it's way easier to coach with LT, and Brees. Remember though Cameron developed Brees (who wasn't drafted high), and SD didn't lose a beat when Rivers stepped in. Cameron isn't my first choice...it's just a possible option since he has U-M ties. If he does well at Miami (big if) he will probably be a hot canidate. If Ron English can make great defense again with by far less talent then last season he will be my first canidate. After English my choices are Kirk Ferentz, and Scott Loeffler (if he does a good OC job for U-M next season)

Oh yeah, and Les Miles. He has a clause out of LSU to go to U-M. Although I think Miles looks like a prick I wouldn't complain if he came here

Didnt some guy just get arrested for standing out front of the Michigan Union with a baseball bat, yelling about Lloyd Carr?

Yeah. In other news, the Tigers beat the Yankees in the ALDS!!! tongue.gif

Guy's been convicted already. He was guilty of stalking or some kind of charge like that and was given probation. It wasn't the yelling - that's just what he happened to be doing when he was arrested - it was more the threatening emails.

Well I knew he had a stalker before, but when I heard it, it sounded like recent news...so I thought there was another.

Haha! Yeah I know how you feel. I'm still pissed FLA beat the crap out of you guys. If the OSU team that played U-M wouuld have showed up against FLA it would have been a great game

This scares me...

University of Michigan defensive coordinator Ron English is interviewing for the Vikings vacancy today with coach Brad Childress, Adam Schein of Sirius NFL Radio reports. English was the defensive coordinator of the Wolverines last season, and he was the secondary coach for two seasons before that. He served as the secondary coach for the Seattle Seahawks in 2003. Schein said that English is the front-runner for the job, if they can agree to a contract. Last year, English agreed to become the Chicago Bears defensive backs coach, but backed out when Wolverines head coach Lloyd Carr offered him the defensive coordinator position. English is thought to be a potential replacement for Carr at Michigan. The timing of this is curious since National Signing Day is Wednesday. For instance, several high-profile high school students already have verbally committed to Michigan. In fact, Boubacar Cissoko, a junior at Detroit's Cass Tech High School, mentioned English by name in a recent report.
"Ron English said I could come in and have a chance to start," Cissoko told the Ann Arbor News. "I want a chance to play."

I hate when I-A teams play I-AA teams. The hell.

At least Appalachian State is the I-AA national champs.

I see some brilliant comments on the freep forums though:
