The Jets? Good God in short breeches! There's no way to put a happy face on that.

You ain't just whistling Dixie.

I for one have nothing but respect for Lloyd and what he gave us as Michigan alums, not just fans. The best program in college football history is also one of the classiest, and no one exemplified this more than Mr. Carr, in an age when everyone goes after fly by night NFL coaches and quick fix solutions, Lloyd represents the old tradition of quality men coaching men in life as well as a game. As for his record, only Fielding Yost and Bo stand ahead of Lloyd in many categories. 5 Big Ten titles during the conference's heyday, and a national title in our senior year. I think his best stat is his insane winning percentage against teams ranked in the Top 10 (.654). I'm sad to see him go, even if it's best. I just hope most don't fall prey to a view askew, as it were, in that we MUST remember the good more than the tough seasons, a time in which many other Big Ten schools were better than us anyway and we were underdogs in most if not all of our bowl losses. My two cents. Lloyd Carr is one of the ALL TIME greats, a man who deserves many a school property named after him, and who will be very very difficult to replace and follow.
