He won more than he lost against OSU. Not easy to do.
His teams have been lousy in the big games, however.
Sad day for OSU fans today. No more Lloyd to kick around.
Lloyd was a good coach, never a great one. But he did what UM asked him to do: win with integrity. I do think there is something to be said for that.
He was 6-7 against Ohio State, I believe. 5-1 pre Tressel, 1-6 vs. Tressel.
I told you it was hard to do.
Here are his records against all opponents. I don't think this list includes W's and L's for this current season. He really beat up on Indiana and Penn State.
MGoBlue: Carr vs. Collegiate Opponents
Here's why Lloyd kept his job..........
7-1 Wisconsin.......... you go boy
8-2 Penn State.......... good job
9-1 Minnesota .........ouch ........
9-3 MSU .............we love ya.......
7-1 Illinois ............nice work....
10-0 Indiana .............................yikes !!!!!!!!!
overall record in the Big Ten of 75-22 or 77% wins
These are what a coach at UM is measured against.
He's a winner in my book..........thank-you Lloyd.
Live long and prosper.........
Actually the record against MSU should be 10-2 if adjusted for the clock "malfunction" game.
Another Michigan man?
ESPN - Michigan gets permission to talk to LSU's Miles - College Football
I'm totally spooked by his clock management and general end-game strategy against Arkansas. I swear I've seen 10 year olds on X-Box with more natural instincts for what to do with timeouts.
His recruiting skills and motivational ability seem to be through the roof though.
Those fast players are what Michigan needs though and not those slowfooted slugs so if he can recruit speed at the skilled positions, then it may over come some of those minor coaching issues that he has..... is there anybody else on the short or long list that they are looking at?
I heard that they have opened up discussions with Wayne Fonte's agent.
TaShawn, you've discovered my identity. I've posted my picture as my avatar. I cannot be a coach anymore as I have serious back pain. My mobility has been limited these days. Even as the head coach of the Detroit Lions, I used to travel extensively at practice in a golf cart. I wanted to use it during games but WCF said no........Notice in my picture I'm calling my favorite play. I wish it to be a secret. (handoff to Barry)
My gut tells me that Les Miles would be a really good hire. I hope he sends DeBord packing. I imagine he will. I think he should retain Ron English in some capacity although I doubt English would want a lesser role.
ESPN - Sources: Michigan to make Miles announcement next week - College Football
LOL. I don't think it's a secret that Les Miles would be a really good hire ANYWHERE.
Problem is...if the Wolverines suck again anyhow...who will they blame???
Probably the coach. Or Lloyd from the AD's office; or Bo from the grave. Plenty of blame to go around. I'd rather see UM lose and NOT play conservative then win and sit on the ball after getting a lead. The recruiting framework is already in place for the Wolverines. They need a guy who can actually do something with the recruits. Lloyd was clueless about many things on the field although I think he did a good job off it as far as character development, teaching morals, etc.
The latest report is that Miles will stay at LSU, although I wouldn't believe much of anything until he makes an announcement himself.
Wow, ESPN has given conflicting reports on their own site. Herbstreit was the source on Miles coming to UM. Hopefully, he is wrong and gets fired over it. I can't stand that OSU slappy.
Just saw the Miles PC...I think it's a snow job by Miles to keep his team motivated thru whatever BCS game they get. He might be following in the footsteps of his predecessor Saban in lying to the media regarding his intentions.
I'd bet UM hires Miles by the end of January.
This isn't really like Saban. The LSU AD is saying that Miles told the team he's staying, but Miles still hasn't said anything to the media that's anywhere close to as definitive as what Saban was publically proclaiming.
Miles said in the CBS pregame that he will be LSU's coach next season. He'll look pretty bad now if he recants on that.
Did he? I saw him saying at a press conference that "I will be the coach at LSU," but he didn't say "next season" or any other time span. It seemed like he left a lot of wiggle room. Did he make a different statement at some point today?
