    While we're talking about possible new coaches, how about Ron English?...

    This guy impresses the hell out of me. In his first year as DC at Mich., he's taken basically the same players from last year's very average defensive squad and turned them into one of the best defenses in the country.

    English is a fiery guy on the sidelines. He also coaches an attacking style of "D" rather than the read and react style we play. The Chicago Bears almost had him hired away from Mich. for an assistant position before the season, so you have to think he's well thought of in the football world.

    Also, he's a California guy who also played his college ball at Cal, so that'd be great for recruiting. There is a rumor Mich. St. is looking to hire him, but I don't know if there's any truth there. Thoughts?

    Nebraska smashed a talented Michigan team last year in their Bowl of Hope last year. It made their offseason and gave them, hope until USC. Now they have regressed at Okie State and came back to the pack in the North. At same time, Michigan at #2 in BCS could almost lose close against OState and still play in THE BIG ONE anyway just like the Big Eight had Nebraska, Oklahoma, Colorado rated 1,2,3. He might be very good and can kick some butt into action. Action Jackson. May be a RonPrince in development.

    English is a good teacher and motivator.....but his schemes are not real complex. The reason the Michigan D has improved so much, was their coordinator the last 10ish years (Herman) had such complex schemes that the players could not figure it out. Ron came in and simplified everything, and he can do that well, since they have a rediculous amount of talent there.

    Not so sure that would work here. He would have to do a hell of a job recruiting, which he may be able to do though.
