    Not to butt in , but isn't it a bit pre mature to be writing the guys obituary before anything has been announced? just saying...

    He did have a really young team this year and I've been thinking that maybe he'd want to go out with a little more of a bang. Maybe he'll take one more shot at it as I doubt Michigan will be down like that next year.

    A lot are going on his stated intention to retire last year, except for the new AD.

    Thoughts?
    If I were a Michigan fan, I'd be sad Anastos is going. Much the same way Lions & Packers fans were sad to see Jay Cutler let go by the Bears.

    As for Red, if he calls it a career, a couple taps of the stick to a great run.

    Honestly, State sucking got old a long time ago. Sucks more whenever we decide to go down there.

    Others may feel different, but that's how I see it. The years of Mason vs Red were fun.

    I'd much rather wisconsin or Minnesota suck than state.

    There is some of that, but when we are good and they suck, it does take a lot of significance out of the game. Like last year.

    This year was bad because not only did both teams suck, but somehow State brought a level of suckiness that we never expected out of our team. Should be the other way around.

    No announcements at today's Deker's banquet. Other than Red saying that he will meet with Manuel this week.

    If one would try to read anything into what was said- Red will come back. That's how I would have read it.

    What the hell is it gonna take for him to retire? Was getting blown out at Yost twice by a team who fired their terrible unqualified coach not enough?

    George Sipple of the Free Press thinks Red is back for one final season.

    A winning season?

    Really- given what Red has accomplished, the fact that the team struggled against MSU is probably a reason to not retire.

    When you look at what they are losing- it's also a relatively light year- a couple of guys who started pretty much every game, a goalie that he shared time with, and one guy who *might* come back for one more season. And it's highly unlikely anyone goes early- nobody stood out that much. HUGE freshman class, one of which was the top scorer of the team, another who was second in scoring and voted MVP of the team, and the team's top defenseman is a sophomore. Plus two goalies that have looked really good.

    Given all of that, and the fact that this season was so poor, one can see Red coming back.

    Red's retirement will be a sheet pulled over him behind the bench!

    I guarantee you he won't retire because he punches a rival player.

    My reading into it told me he's leaving, because last year at the banquet he said he was staying. Not making that same statement....???

    We'll know soon enough.

    We thought the tone was more "I don't want to leave like this" as he was pretty darned blunt with comments.

    Have heard that sentiment before.

    If Red comes back, it's not because he just wants another year for the sake of another year, it's because the team is going to be good.

    he has some points.

    But the part about Cooper Marody was not well laid out. Last I heard, Cooper had mono, which made his school work really suffer. And one bad semester made him ineligible for one semester.

    If the blog was right, Cooper would probably have mailed in the second half of the season he played in, and have already announced that he would be playing with some minor league team. But he didn't- he became one of the more dynamic players in the second half.

    Was the defection of Compher, Copp, Motte, etc- due to Red? Dunno. I'm sure they don't like being reminded that they are here for school, and that's how Red sees it.

    All in all, I can't see that Red should be fired if he does not retire on his own. But that's just me.
