  • Oh, well. This was always a possibility, and I agree with JD that Michigan wanted this to not be true, as they could have moved on months ago.

    Who is next? Some former players do have experience as HC, and many of the HCs had Michigan ties one way or another.

    As for wTs thoughts of the 70s and 80s mens having the most issues, I would agree with that, as the most cringe worthy stuff came from men of that era. Not all men, but the worst ones for sure. Feel free to defend yourself, just bear in mind that observations are observations. As well as the people getting fired- since that’s the era of men I saw let go at my corporation. It also matches the complaints I heard from my wife.

    Anyway, time to move on. It will be interesting to see how fast a new coach is brought on, since this has been a possibility for so long.

      Believe it. Earn it. Raise it.

      • Not sure what the precedent would be for this so close to the season but my guess is Michigan goes interim head coach for the year. Probably Muckalt unless he was implicated in the report as well.

          I'm not saying these things didn't happen but does anyone here on forum have any firsthand knowledge of these accusations? There is a possibility the report is inaccurate.
          Mrs. Pearson, the sources are numerous. All the players, staff, and coaches that came forward are numerous and varied in their link to Mel, but their experiences are consistent. The writer is neither a beat writer with an axe to grind or favor to curry, nor some hack social media "journalist" but a well respected law firm with no dog in the hunt. With the overwhelming amount of smoke, if you can't understand there's a fire burning there really is no hope for you.

          As far as Manuel is concerned, I'm with many other posters. If I were sitting on the Board of Regents, I think I'd have been saying, "You really want to keep Mel after all this? You think what he did is appropriate?? All in favor of terminating Warde's contract effective 10 minutes from now, say, 'aye'."

          All great men are dead and I'm not feeling well.
          A Margarita! in every hand and another Margarita! in the other hand!

          And stay off the lawn!

              For all of your obstinate defending to this point, this is a very quick pivot.

              I'd like to know if you feel a little burned by this conclusion.

                My implication is that some men that have been in the work force since the 70s and 80s have not adjusted to having women in the work force. I think it is less of an issue with the younger generations who have always worked beside women. And yes, I realize that I am generalizing a group, and being ageist, but these are the opinions I have formed based on the interactions I have had (as a female in engineering and manufacturing I encounter too much good 'ol boys club)
                Well, I do understand your point. I am an engineering manager and have seen my share of cringeworthy situations. You should have seen the behavior of some of the people who entered the workforce in the 60's as I entered in the late 80's. All I can tell you is there will be always be some neanderthals, but most are not. And the tolerance for it a good companies has certainly changed markedly in the past 10 years.

                • "It has been determined that Mel Pearson will not return as our ice hockey coach," Manuel said Friday in a statement. IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED??? Did someone hand deliver a sealed envelope to this guy with the outcome printed inside? Did a pigeon fly in a coded message? Did he get an anonymous phone call? Did his dog bark in Morse code? For gods sake man, take some ownership.

                    She still started it off with "some men" and if it doesn't apply to you don't sweat it.

                      I never said it couldn’t happen, I posted that it seemed less likely as we got further from the easy break point a few months ago. The only part that truly sucks is that it took so long into the upcoming season.

                      I’ll still contend of your and other posters obsession with Michigan. Still here. Move on, for gods sake. We have to.

                        There were intentional decisions made not to act by the AD. He took so long, by design.

                        • I am not familiar with what is going on at Michigan, so this will just be a question as to what the future holds. Will there be NCAA sanctions against Michigan such as post season tournament bans or loss of scholarships for a few years? Or is this just to be treated internally?

                            You need the motion and a second, and call for further discussion, before taking a vote. ;-)

                            Robert's Rules aside, I'd bet only the president of UMi works directly for the board (Regents) and everyone else at UMi works for the president. The motion to directly fire the AD would be out of order. It'd have to be a resolution, and then the Regents would all slowly turn and look at the president with the smirk that says ... gonna follow the resolution, or do we fire you and get a president who will.
                            The preceding post may contain trigger words and is not safe-space approved. <-- Virtue signaling.

                              Only thing close to NCAA violations was the Covid stuff. Given the school name, highly doubt anything NCAA-wise arises.

                                Yep. I was simply trying to put my thoughts in two sentences instead of two paragraphs. I'm with you on the proper procedures, just amazed that hasn't happened.
