Post for Brent Musburger: Nothing to see here.

In the 4th quarter of the Rose Bowl game, Brent Musburger repeatedly referred to "bloggers" calling for Coach Carr to be fired because of Michigan's inablility to beat OSU and/or win its bowl games for three consecutive seasons. Despite his assertions to the contrary, Mr. Musburger was trying to throw a lit match into a gas can. As for this "Michigan Blog," there will be no calls by this webmaster for Coach Carr to be terminated. As far as I'm concerned, he has earned the right to stay here as long as he so desires. I hope he decides to stay for several more seasons although realistically he probably will not coach more than another three years. So Mr. Musburger, there is nothing controversial for you at this blog. Try my links. Maybe UMGoBlue.COM. Go Blue!

P.S. If you are reading my blog, Mr. Musburger, please do what you can to have Erin Andrews on your crew next season. Thanks. Much appreciated.

I don't think you can say that Lloyd Carr 'has earned the right to be here as long as he desires'

How long is he going to live off that '97 championship ?

Ultimately what counts are victories in the big game, and those have been few and far between lately.

Ultimately what counts is that a program with the resources, history, and fan base of Michigan should be competing for the national title each and every year.

The Wolverines' loss today has to fall squarely on the shoulders of Coach Carr and the rest of the coaching staff.

The boys were not prepared to play, the O-Line got raped because they didn't know what to make of USC's blitz packages and the secondary was exposed for the second straight game, in a similar fashion to the OSU game.

Most damning of all the Wolverines were not able to make the adjustments that USC so obviously made at the half and continued to come at the Trojans with that conservative 1975 offense. When the Wolverines finally opened it up a bit by beginning to feed it to the tight ends it was too little to late.

USC put their foot off the gas. We were lucky to only lose 32-18.

With the team that the Wolverines have coming back next year - I fully expect them to run the table and be in the conversation for the national title. Other than USC and UF, who else is there (realistically) ? Anything less and Carr should go.

At that point it would be enough with prolonging the inevitable, face reality and hire someone who can push Michigan over the top.

I heard Musburger more than once, threatening a blogger outpouring. Brent's a creep and should shut his mouth when broadcasting about things outside the game. Lloyd is the coach, not a collection of 300 pounders who missed most of their assignments on New Year's Day. The O Line was the bottom line here...BAD DAY!!
Earlier this year Brent gave out the QB signal that USC's Booty was using in the first half of the game and the other team picked it up every time he used it from that point forward. What an arrogant idiot, Brent is overdone, get him off the air.

O line to D backs....all rest squarley on Coach Carr's shoulders. He has fumbled his responsibility and once again left a very sour taste in the mouths of UM fans worldwide. We were beat, we were beat up and we were schooled at every turn. There were no bright spots, no notable performances and what was so surprising, little to no emotion from the UM sideline. The coaches looked clueless and the team looked hopeless. The players can't execute a flawed plan and it was very clear that the better prepared coach had the better game plan.
