People you call your self fans but yet you give the coach crap. He has brought the team back too .500 and now looks good again in some eyes. Lloyd has done a lot for this team he recruits great players he is a MICHIGAN MAN i feel he is not great but people sure loved him last year going to Ohio State Undefeated If Lloyd wants to go because of you dummys talking about him then let him. I Like Lloyd and i ask him please stay. We all loved Bo(GOD BLESS HIS SOLE) but he could not win a national Championship either but we did not want him gone. And ask this who do we want for a coach if Lloyd goes is there anyone worth getting I think not. To me all the great coaches are somewhere and we could get stuck hiring and firing coaches like Alabama did or N.dame is do we want this. I have been a michigan fan for years and i am pleased to say I support Lloyd Carr and his staff keep up the good work. This was written by a true fan not you people.

Lloyd Carr appears to be a decent human being. He simply is in way over his head. I am a life-long Wolverine football fan and have NEVER heard Lloyd utter even an inciteful comment on football strategy. Coaches of other top teams at least offer some incite and some even implement a strategy. Lloyd appears to survive solely on the Michigan tradition.

He is good recruiter, as Michigan always has a top recruitment class. However, this may be due to the University, with the largest alumni body and a great academic as well as athletic tradition, he has to sell. It is certainly not due to his charisma. Ironically, the talent he has had, as demonstrated by both ranking of recruitment classes and almuni in the NFL, reveals how weak he is as a coach. Great talent with mediocre results. The problem at Michigan appears to be the coach.

The time has come to find a Michigan coach that will add to its great tradtion, rather than simply live off it.

First of all... Lloyd Carr didn`t lead Michigan to anything! Especially a National Championship. It was a "co-national championship" and it was Gary Mollers team that won, not Carrs!!!

I've been a Michigan fan all my life (or at least as far back as I can remember), but I haven't been a Lloyd Carr fan for the past several years. The one National Championship was won by a team recruited by the previous coach, not Carr. It hardly seems possible at this point, but Carr's teams seem to underachieve more stunningly every year. At the college level, that comes down to coaching (and recruiting, which is part of coaching a college team), but it isn't only Carr's fault. His entire staff needs to go as well, in my opinion. U-M needs to pony up the bucks and hire a high-profile coach who can handle coaching a big-time college program the way the game is being played in the 21-century. Then let that coach hire his own staff and give them at least four years to rebuild the team after a decade of really poor recruiting on Carr's and his staff's parts. Then see where we are.

As long as the folks at U-M who hold the reigns concerning the football coaching position(s)continue to turn a blind eye to Coach Carr's failures even as those failures become ever more obvious to the rest of us who watch every week during the season, we fans will only get more of the same...or worse.

How many losses will it take this year to convince people that Coach Carr sucks? They could easily be 0-4 before going on the road to Northwestern Sept. 29, and then even that may be a toss-up. Is that good enough? U-M will likely lose to OSU yet again this year...even at home. I predict that they will end the season 4-8. If they do go 6-6 or 7-5 (not entirely impossible, I suppose), they will likely win their bowl game only because Coach Carr seems to have just enough coaching ability to beat a lesser team in a "who-cares" bowl. Will that be good enough for Coach Carr and his staff to save their jobs? Exactly how badly can they fail and yet keep their jobs? Do you think they aren't asking themselves exactly that question over a few drinks in someone's Ann Arbor office right now (after their trouncing at hands of Oregon)? Don't bet that they aren't. But that's not what I want the U-M coaching staff to be asking right now. The question they should be asking is whether they should just do the right thing and resign.

As a lifelong U-M fan, I have to say that I am actually looking forward to a crappy season for the football team. It sucks for all the guys on the team who bust their asses every week and deserved better during their college careers. (They aren't getting paid $1 million+ a year, and have to leave after five years with little more than a U-M diploma and a few gridiron battle scars if they're fortunate not to have been badly injured). I'm just afraid that the only hope we fans have for a better future for U-M football is if Coach Carr has such a horrible year that he and his staff are shown the door.

Never has a Michigan coach done so little with so much. Don't blame the players. Every stupid call, every failure to execute points to a poorly coached team. It's time to junk this Carr and the rest of his lemons. If Lloyd has as much class as everyone claims, let him show it by stepping aside before he does any more damage.

If today's biggest embarrassment in college football history isn't enough to can "droopy," I don't know what is. The only potential windfall of this humiliation is the likelihood that we have seen this man walk the sidelines for the last time. We need someone who can COACH the top 5 talent that are recruited every year - not someone who has nothing better than an "'aw shucks" as he makes the biggest negative entry into the record books for the Michigan program.

Unless all of you are breaking down the game films or in the huddles, at practice, etc. than this is a bunch of b.s. How can you say a player on defense is out of position if you don't even know what his responsibilities for that specific play are, or Henne locks on receivers...do you know what his reads and check downs are? And for the comment from Doctor M.D. about injuries, they can happen to any player at any time, yes even the best conditioned athletes. Do you sit and watch the conditioning drills or the strength and conditioning workouts? I can't believe Michigan fans write crap like this, did we have the best record last year..No but that doesn't mean it's the coaches fault, did Lloyd fumble on the 20 against Wisconsin, miss the tackle late in the game against Minnesota, no the players did. These are young players we are bound to make mistakes and if those mistakes happen at an important part of the game than the result will be very negative. Support Michigan football, not just when we win but also when we lose. What a joke some of you are.

As an Iowa Hawkeye fan I fully support Lloyd Carr. Even though Michigan is able to recruit superior talent, Iowa will always have a chance with Carr at the helm. Carr's biggest obstacle may be the inablity to coach consistent offensive line run blocking. The inablity to consistently run the ball has made Michigan just a good rather than great offensive team. Don't get me wrong-- they still have the players who can make the big play, but teams from Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota don't fear the Wolverines, and in fact look forward to playing a game that is very winnable. Long Live Lloyd Carr!!!!!

Lloyd Carr is a great coach and mentor, but his level of strategy has declined in recent games. He has lost many games because he decided to play conservative football, instead of going for the final blow. He plays not to lose when he should play to win. If he comes back next year and has 2 or less losses, I will be happy. But, if he loses to both Notre Dame and Ohio State, many fans will call for his head, and I will probably join that bandwagon. Though, I do not believe this will happen because he had a young, injuried, and rattled team this year, and he will soon realize that playing to win is what matters, not playing to "not lose". I thank Lloyd Carr for all that he has brougth to this program, and I hope he can pull together a pool of talent and bring us another national title. Go Blue!!!!

Don't get me wrong, I am eternally grateful for everything Lloyd Carr has given us, but he just can't win the big games anymore and he can barely win the easy games. It is killing me that we have come to this. Even if we have a 7 or 8 win season (which other schools would die to have), we aren't improving and thats the problem, we're stuck in upper tier purgatory, better than most, but ultimately we are losers, continually falling below our potential. In the past few years we have been backsliding into a mediocre oblivion. 3 loses, 4 loses, now 5 loses this year. There comes a point where enough is enough. Even if we have 30 bowls in a row, what good does it do if you can't win any. It's also bullcrap that we can't beat Ohio State and Notre Dame and we're not dominating Michigan State. I swear I will kill myself if we let Michigan State become a legitimate rival or if I have to listen to another Ohio State fan tell me what that fag Jim Tressels record is against us. We are above that! We should be knocking there butts out of contention every year on the way to the Championship game not the other way around. But that is the way we are becoming, one of the good sometimes, bad most times, middle-of-the-road Big Ten teams; on par with the likes of Wisconsin, Minnesota, or Iowa. That is an embarrassment! It taints Michigan's Legacy and in my opinion is inexcusable. But what does the athletic director Bill Martin do? He goes and gives Coach Carr a raise! A raise, did I miss something? This is the worst season in 15 years and he gives Carr a raise? Obviously its perfectly ok with the senior leadership at Michigan to let this program go to waste. That's a slap in the face to the Michigan faithful. He's condoning Carrs degrading performance, WHY!? Because he won a "shared" championship almost 10 years ago? Because he won a share of the Big Ten title a few years? Thats freaking Bullsh*t!!! We should be winning the Big Ten outright and be in contention for the Championship every year. We are going to end up like Penn State, having a bunch of 3-8 seasons because they're afraid to fire the coach. Sure, we might have a good year once in a while but is it worth it? Does one national championship guarantee a coaching position for life? Give me a freaking break!!! We are better than that. The bottom line is this, what kind of team do you want? Do you want a team that is in contention for the championship every year, or do you want a progressively declining program that not even worthy of its own lineage. The most successful program in college football history needs an elite coach, and right now Coach Carr does not fit the bill. Im fed up with these stupid, unnecessary loses. I say out of respect give him one more year. If he doesnt improve drastically, I think he needs to find another program.

I'm a life long Michigan fan and a 1976 graduate of the UM. I join in the call for the immediate firing of Lloyd Carr. In business, the CEO of a company is responsible for the performance of his company. And clearly, the UM football program, which generates millions of dollars each year for the UM Athletic Department, has failed to perform. Carr's record against Ohio State is 1-4 in the last five years. He has lost the last three bowl games, including the embarrassment in Texas last week. In big games, Carr coaches very conservatively, one of the reasons why he can't win the big ones anymore. My vote is promote Carr to athletic director and find a 21st century coach.

He got the job by default for one. How many more OSU/ND losses will we endure before someone in Ann Arbor decides enough is enough. Anyone that supports Carr at this point is clueless. How many games were blown in the fourth quarter? Lets see--Minnesota, Wisconsin,Ohio State, Nebraska and they struggled againt Northern Illinois in the first half at home! How about last year--getting beat by Texas in the fourth quarter--losing to OSU and a crappy Notre Dame. It's time for a change. Cooper got fired for not beating Michigan--will Carr get fired for not beating Notre Dame, Ohio State and 3 consecutive bowl losses. Last year they had the number 6 recruiting class in the country--and went 7-5. Save the nice guy crap..Carr sucks.

As a lifelong Wolverine I join with the many voices that are calling for the immediate firing of llyod carr. Despite the talent that Michigan attracts (although they won't continue to if carr isn't fired) he manages to make mediocrity his mantra. If you love Michigan football flood the lack luster administration with emailing demanding the removle of the broken down carr.

I have been reading the comments, and the difference between rating Carr a one or four star is the experience people have with football. I played football for six years and was a student of the game the same as I was a player. Someone said Lloyd Carr is good because he won a nation title. The title was won with the recruiting class of the previous coach, not Carr. Also, as for injuries, they are related to lack of conditioning. It would be one thing if the injuries were torn MCLs or ACL, but they are all related to joints and pulled muscles. Being that I have an uncle and brother who are ortho doctors and that I have the experience from playing the game a long time, the injuries are related to not running in workouts, bad weight workouts, etc. They weren't conditioned and looked awful. Overall, its coaching. Who gets in trouble a company if something goes wrong? The CEO. Lloyd is the CEO of Michigan Football. He is responsible for his coaches and players. He is responsible for the recruiting of the players in regards to their character. When the players don't play with enthusiasm or get in trouble off the field or look and act like thugs on and off the field, it's Lloyd Carr's responsiblity.

I wouldn't care too much if we hadn't started ranked No. 3 then following that with our typical second game of the season loss (no matter if it's ND or ND High School). I'm a '76 Grad and also attended the Alamo Bowl, Rose Bowl, and Alamo Bowl agst A&M; (all losses) and I certainly didn't see any intensity as the players strolled on and off the field. Obviously, not mentally prepared or motivated except the last four minutes of the game. At this age emotion is lot of the game and we certainly had none this season. Our QB does not look his recievers away and locks onto them so the defense just follows his eyes. At least last year he had BEdwards and he could just toss up the ball and he'd come down with it, not this year. LCarr needs to retire and let some new blood take over, please.

I'm a former coach and the thing that really bugs the crap out of me is how fundamentally poor the defense is and also the lack of proper footwork and throwing motion of Chad Henne. Is anyone watching the same game as me? There were at least 3 or 4 big running plays given up by the defense where nobody seems to understand the concept of containing the outside and also pursuit angles are just terrible. With Henne, it's the same crap every week. He is too indecisive and jittery. Reminds me a lot of Ron Powlus. Anybody agree? All of this is a direct reflection on the coaching staff because things never seem to change. When's the last time Jim Herrmann actually fielded a defense. 5 years? Maybe. Anyone remember 54-51 against Northwestern? I can't even count the number of 30-plus point games given up. Someone made a comment that Carr plays not to lose. Couldn't be more on track. I was at the Ohio State game and I can say that anyone who thought we were going to stop Ohio State on those last two drives needs to have their head examined. After the first score, we drove the ball back down the field and had a 4th and 5 on around the 35 with 3-1/2 min. to go and we send in Rivas who we all know had no chance to make it so anyone with half a football mind knows the stupid pooch kick is coming. Why not GO FOR IT!! They make it, they might keep the ball long enough to run more time off and maybe (if Rivas can get his fat leg through the ball) even make a field goal. If they don't, oh well geez, Ohio State was going to score anyway maybe there might have been some time left. The coaching philosophy sets these things up to happen all the time. By the way, while we're on kicking, is that fat body the best we have to offer? If I know LLoyd, we have another year to look forward to that. He needs to learn how to find kickers like Tressel always seems to have because he seems to realize the importance of special teams and the kicking game. Anyway, I'm tired of it and we NEED A REAL CHANGE. The current coaches need to change there ways or resign. I really wish I could have 15 minutes of Coach Carr's time and I wish this letter would find him. A lot of my questions would start with the word "why".

Hurts recruiting? Can you explain how he's hurt recruiting with Hart and Grady. Henne. That's pretty good recruiting. Ohio State wouldn't stand for this? They did for 13 years. A good coach is a good coach. He has a National Championship. You don't just throw those out. The defense does get a little conservative and they do have tackeling problems but who are you going to get with a better resume? Gruden? Chuckie scares me.

Three straight bowl game losses is unacceptable for Michigan standards; and has hurt recruiting substantially. Now four bowl game losses (although very bad officiating last night) will absolutely devistate Michigan's recruiting ability outside the state of Michigan. And in a state where MSU has a better in-state recruiting program Lloyd Carr's bowl game record will have lasting effects for years to come.

I support Lloyd Carr and Michigan. I am a season ticket holder and a long time fan. I refuse to jump on the "fire Carr bandwagon." they will be back next year...older and mature. they are a young team plagued by injuries this year. Overal he has done great at Michigan, and to call for his job over a "rebuilding season" is ignorant. If history repeats itself after our last Alamo Bowl lost, we won the national title. Maybe not a national title next year, but everytime they have a "so-so" season they come back strong the following year for outstanding year. Michigan for 2006 Big ten Champs! GO BLUE

It goes without saying that Lloyd needs to go. What I hope won't happen again WHEN Lloyd gets canned is promoting someone from within the organization. Michigan needs to hire a head coach who has no prior affiliation with the University of Michigan Athletic Department. The last two coaches (Gary and Lloyd) were both former coaches under Bo. WE NEED NEW BLOOD. I only hope that once a new coach is hired, he will bring in all of his own people (i.e. fire the entire coaching staff, not just the head coach). Only then do I believe we have a chance to restore the team we once knew as a national contender.

I've been saying for 7 years that the guy's a clown. The day Ohio State hired Tressel I also explained to everyone who would care to listen that the little streak is over. We can't block or tackle. We are sloppy and soft. The only thing I disagree with with all the people calling for Carr's head is that he is too conservative. Too conservative? If we're not in 5 wide throwing it, we're running some stupid trick play. I don't see anything conservative about our offense. I would love to see us play REAL Michigan football - physical, smashmouth football. Carr's a joke. He should have been gone after the 2000 season. Also...for all those saying, "If not Carr, then who?", I'll tell you who - Les Miles. He's a Michigan man, his teams are FUNDAMENTALLY SOUND and physical, and he is a winner. So I say...FIRE LLOYD, HIRE LES!!!!! GO BLUE!!!!

Keep Carr. He is the best man for the job, the program has slowly been declining for years and his teams look more and more sloppy. And dont let me forget about the Defense. The way mobile quarterbacks can run all over that defense is a breathtaking site. Is there anything more exciting than seeing Troy Smith split the scUM safties? Enjoy El Paso this year Coach Lloyd!

I have lived in Ohio all my life (26 years) and I have been a Michigan fan for the past 16 years. I have never liked Lloyd Carr since the day he started at Michigan. He likes to play "safe" traditional Big Ten football which leads to consistant three loss seasons!!! Maybe all the old fart alumni members of Michigan are content winning the Big Ten title but us Die Hard fans would like at least a chance at a National Title once in a while!!! In this BCS era you have to take chances and make the most of your talent like USC and other teams at the top. I realize the Maize and Blue cannot be in the National Title game every year...but we will never get there under Lloyd Carr and that is just a FACT!!! I practically had a stroke during the Wisconsin game when he decided to kick a field goal at the end of the second quarter when there was plenty of time to take a shot at the endzone one more time. I have put up with this conservative play from Lloyd Carr for long enough...it is time to get a young exciting coach to shake things up!!! Lloyd did not even put Mike Hart in the game when he could have greatly helped the team...but I guess it is good he did not take a chance on him getting hurt again so we have him available for the crappy bowl game we will be playing in!!!! I am and always will be Maize and Blue...Thru and Thru but I cannot just sit back and take all of the crap I am getting from all the dumb Buckeye fans that surround me every day!!!! IT IS TIME FOR LLOYD TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What I find amazing about Lloyd Carr is that he let another quarterback beat him. You would think that after last year's disaster losing 3 out of 4 of your most important games because of a quarterbacks' ability, some adjustments would have been made this year. I believe that Carr is really a good guy but it is time for him to move into the office. The game is passed him by and his teams are no longer able to compete with speed. I believe this will be his last season.

UM needs to go outside the "Bo Family" and get a coach that has evolved with the game of today (not the battle in the trenches trying to hold off your opponent that it used to be). My senior year at UM is now ruined with the way the play calling is and the motivation that he doesn't bring to the team. 3-11 since 2001 vs. ND, OSU, and bowl games, 1-7 since 98 in first road games, and bringing in top 5 talent that heads nowhere indicates to coaching. Jim Herrmann's defense is always exposed, and I can't remember the last run to the outside on offense. John Cooper for OSU had a record of like 114-41-3 and was fired for going 2-10 vs. UM. Lloyd's stats are just as bad.

Carr needs to be replaced becuase the game has passed him by just like the rest of the Big Ten. He is out to lunch when it comes to getting his players ready to compete. 0-6 in road openers in the last 6 years. The play calling is terrible. vs ND the call sends a TE on a 4 yard out? Hello you needed 15 for the chains to move. He needs to go and Michigan needs to hire a new coach. The game has passed him.

Sites like these are exactly why people say that Michigan has the worst fans in the nation. Maybe we should bring back Bo, I mean, he was amazing in Rose Bowls wasn't he. Or maybe we should have gotten Les Miles, giving up a 21-0 lead at home would really make everyone in Michigan happy. But no, instead we're stuck with Lloyd Carr, easily one of the top coaches in the nation. So let's just bring in another coach that we can all complain about, we can still pack Michigan Stadium and sit on our hands, and we can still forget that we're lucky enough to be a part of the best football tradition in the nation. So for the critics out there, if you never went to school at Michigan and you're a Michigan fan, go ahead, keep complaining, I don't expect you to understand. But as for the alumni and students, grow up, it's embarassing to the university.

Lloyd Carr is the consimate coach who keeps a program clean etc... He runs a nice program but is simply not a motivator or winner. In his last 6 games he is 2-4 only beating up on the MAC and losing all other games. He does not make moves quick enough, has suspect X-O talent, and does not attack with the bluechip talent he has. Upset in the last 10 years 25, yes 25 times agains the LV favorite title - he is quite simply the biggest underachiever in the nation.

He has to go, because he refused to quit last year, Michigan lost out on hiring Les Miles (Michigan Grad) who is now at LSU. LET BO coach the rest of the year!!!!!

Lloyd's got to go. This man has taken a program with tremendous tradition (most wins in Division 1 history) and turned it into a program which is living on the reputation of past successes. Yes, he won a co-national title in 1997, only because Michigan did not play Nebraska in the pre-BCS days. Otherwise, his tenure is characterized by underachievement and waste of talent (look at the UM alumni in the NFL). UM is now a perennial 8-4, 9-3 team. This may be OK at Kansas State or Ole Miss (no offense intended), but UM should have higher standards.

Lloyd Carr is keeping the Wolverines from getting anywhere. I have never seen a team with less discipline or mistake prone than the Michigan Wolverines. They recruit great athletes, and that's the only reason they have had the limited success they've had. Look at Ohio State and Michigan State to see what a disciplinarian coach can do for their teams. Both Tressel and Smith have instilled a "my way or the highway" type of swagger that has taken their teams to the next level. Michigan looks a lot like Cooper's last few Ohio State teams before he was shown the door. FIRE LLOYD CARR NOW!!!!

Since the Big Ten added the Instant Review, Lloyd Carr/MeCheatAgain DOES NOT get the freebies as in the past. Most recently the ND game where the call was overturned. 5 officials in many games and all 5 lived in MeCheatAgain gave Lloyd game winning calls that were clearly BAD CALLS, so Lloyd no longer has biased officiating on his side. He continues to be outcoached in the big games.

You know who the hot team in the big 10 is every year, because they start their season off by beating Michigan. This is a man who loses to Northwestern, then doesn't make adjustments, and loses to them the following season. Ditto Iowa. Ditto Illinois. He let Jim Tressell call his shot by coming into the big house and beating UM in his first year. He let Michigan suffer their worst home loss EVER against Iowa, because they kept running the same screen pass for 30 yards a pop the whole game, even after halftime. Nice adjustment, Lloyd. This a the coach who had a 6'6 quarterback in John Navarre, who had his passes batted down consistently for four years. What did I see in the Notre Dame game? Six passes knocked down against Chad Henne. Great recruiter? Who's the last great player Michigan has had on defense since Charles Woodson? Miami has had Jon Vilma, Sean Taylor, Dan Morgan, and many more. We've had Dhani Jones. This is not the NFL, where every team has close to the same level of talent. Michigan winning ten games a year should be a given. They are no longer even competitive against Notre Dame, Ohio State, or in the Rose Bowl. A great program with tremendous tradition, run into the ground by a mediocore coach. Fire him, Bo. Fire him and get Kirk Ferentz or Urban Meyer in here, and let's restore order.

The most over rated college football coach in football today! Anyone can bring football players to Michigan, but only Mr Carr seems to be able to waste talent so well, He fails to realize defense wins football, and our defense led by my Hermann suck's and thats being nice, and since Carr is the head coach he must be fired, since he won't fire Mr Hermann.

LuhLoyd is average at best. He got a pass during the Cooper years because Coop thought THE game was overrated. He won a SPLIT national title but lost to a very mediocre Notre Dame team last year, struggled against Michigan State, and was destroyed by an Ohio State team that everyone thought they were going to blow-out. Please let us not forget the last two defeats in the Rose Bowl. I think it is sad when your only bowl win in recent history is against a Ron Zook team.
