As for Lloyd, his problem, at least among the old-timers, is that he’s not Bo, except when it comes to Rose Bowl/bowl game winning percentage and dealing with the media (Lloyd hates the media, just like Bo did):
Bo Schembechler believed in strong blocking. Once, he applied a literal interpretation of that principle to the press.
During the 1979 season, Schembechler shoved Daily sports editor Dan Perrin. Perrin, interviewing Schembechler with a tape recorder, asked the coach about the Wolverines' dismal kicking record.
Schembechler threw the microphone down and pushed Perrin in a hallway outside a press luncheon.
"Don't try to make me look bad, you understand, son, or I'll throw you the hell out of Michigan football," Schembechler could be heard on the tape telling Perrin.
When questioned about the incident later, Schembechler told a reporter, "I don't even remember; you know these kids."

And here's something about Lloyd I didn’t know until just the other day:
From when Carr was hired in 1995 through Jan. 1, 1998, when Michigan beat Washington State to win the sportswriter’s view of the national championship, he went 7-0 against Top-10 ranked teams. At a point somewhat later, Carr was 10-1 against the Top-10 and to this day still has a 16-8 overall record when going against such teams.
Damn…that’s pretty good. But I can certainly understand why a Sock Puppet would’ve wanted him fired ten years ago.
