Time's up. After an atrocious 14-3 (3?!?) loss to Ohio State today, one thing is obvious; The game has passed Michigan's Lloyd Carr by. Despite his record of relative excellence, this team does not have the mindset nor the philosophy required to overcome Ohio State nor has this program recognized and adapted to the growth and development of modern football into a game of speed AND power. Today, and for the past several years, Michigan has not had enough of either. Instead, our coaches call plays that everyone in the stadium knows are coming; There is no deception, no creativity, no real passion on the field. This year has highlighted Carr's massive flaws as a leader of the winningest program in college football history; No discipline on special teams, taking players that come to college with blazing speed and bulking them up and slowing them down, a disorganized sideline, and talented players that are shoved into an overly conservative offensive system that does not allow our most talented guys to make big plays. Simply unacceptable.

Le the rumors begin; While smug Ohio State fans bask in the glow of Jim Tressel's mastery of Lloyd Carr, (he is 6-1 against Michigan), my money is on LSU head coach Les Miles, a former Michigan player, assistant coach and lifelong Wolverine, to come in and turn the program back into an aggressive, dominant program that wins titles. It is a formidable task; There are several roadblocks on the way to winning Miles' services, including a million dollar plus buyout of his contract at LSU, but we need someone with his passion and flair to restore this team. It is absolutely unbearable to watch Michigan this year as the team, a clichéd version of itself, simply plays sloppy, slow, uninspired football. Enough is enough; Lloyd Carr must go.

    Oh yes, I forgot you used to be a powerhouse. Wasn't Notre Dame in that group as well? Just so you know, the players don't use leather helmets anymore.

    Michigan leads the series 57-41-6

    When you get within ten wins of tying the series, let me know.

    Things go in cycles. We'll be back, never fear.

    OSU fans don't really care who the coach is at UM. After all, you're not really an arch rival. You're just OSU's stepping stone to the national stage.
