I cannot stress this enough: These are the types of rumors and stories that people create when a program hasn’t won enough football games and has not reached or exceeded expectations.
Look at Mark Dantonio last off-season when there were rumors of NCAA sanctions and of a coaching change. NONE of it was true, and MSU rebounded to have a fine 2017 season. If Michigan wants these rumors to stop, it must start winning, it must beat their rivals and the best teams on their schedule.
It’s that simple.
In the message board era there will always be “anonymous” insiders and “sources.” I would caution anybody who is interested in the program to only pay attention to what somebody who is willing to put their name on their work is reporting.
In the end, I think Michigan is building something to last, on a strong foundation. There won’t be any shortcuts and the process won’t always be pleasant, but in the end the program will benefit and be strong for it.
