Congratulations to Bacari. I guess some of you guys, especially Moose, can say they told us so :D . Let's hope JJ stays on and I wonder who else might be added. I know I'm excited and the staff has my full support

We're an hour into the Bacari era, and this is it? Three measly posts?

Woohoo! Hope he gets some good assistants!

My happy moment occurred on April 1. Everything from this point on is just gravy. I'll chime in again following his first "chip on the shoulder" Doritos speech. :)

I got this on the UM Forum. Does anyone know if this is true?


I think BA is refusing to keep Jackson on staff and that is the holdup

JD Based on my interaction with JJ last week I do not believe that this is the case!

Hopefully they do the press release no later than tomorrow so the media can roll with it before the weekend, I think since the school has not announced it Commish that is why we don't have more posts yet. I am excited for the new era!

The Detroit News story says that Cory Allen is okay with Bacari.

Makes sense. Barcari was scouting him for Michigan at one point in Allen's high school career and they had a lot of contact.

Even better news than the hiring.

But it's a great hire. We should be very pleased.

Maybe someone should put up another poll now that we've heard of potential suitors and have hired Bacari? As this one stands, it still looks like he's only gotten a 45% approval rating when in reality is probably much higher. Not sure how I'd vote next time, but I'm definitely happy we've got a coach on campus. Excited for next season.

On a side note, is anybody thinking Doyle may come with him? Do we even have room? Would we want him? Commish?

Kind of anti-climatic for some of us. ;) Still, it would be poor form to gloat. (YESSSS!!!!!) Or try to take advantage of the situation.(Bacari, you can send my season tickets to "Moose Inc. General Delivery, Moose, USA" All I'll say is never doubt my official, patented, Moose Ouija Board.

***And it can be yours, too, for 4 easy payments of $19.95. But that's not all! If you act now, I'll throw in another Moose Ouija Board free of charge. That's 2 official, patented, Moose Ouija Boards for less that $80.00. Amaze your friends, relatives, and neighbors with 100% accurate predictions from those moose who have gone on before us.***

I am very happy to get the show on the road. Good luck to Bacari Alexander. Hopefully, JJ stays around. This is a very exciting time for us, regardless.

See ya Bacari, It's been nice knowing Ya! Keeping Jackson shouldn't have been a hold up. If he doesn't want Jackson then he doesn't get the job.

Thats the one thing I don't like about the hire. Rumors that Bacari would be hired began well before Ray was let go.

I like having a UofD guy back. I think Bacari will impress recruits' parents. I think he may motive the players if he's not too cheesy. I trust he will bring a new brand of play, maybe defense first. I think he has many pieces in place already to do that. I hope he sits Paris down and says "This is my team and our team, not your team."
