If we miss out on Jim Harbaugh, seems like a perfect storm brewing for the consolation prize. This would not be a bad combo. Miles can eat grass and Pelini can bring his cat.
I am just worried he might also bring Cam Cameron as OC..
Before th decision was announced Coach Hoke addressed th team n we voted on captains, indicative of the type of man he was putting team frst— Henry Poggi (@The_Hank_Poggi) December 2, 2014
My guess would be Kerridge, Morgan, and Bolden.
Mr. Hackett deserves credit for talking the talk:
"I wanted to make sure that Brady received adequate time to exhibit the results that would come from his effort and I believe that Brady and our coaching staff had enough time to produce those results and unfortunately they are not there. In the end, I feel that moving in a different direction is the right decision. I wish Brady and his family all the best in the future."
All that remains to be seen is whether Mr. Hackett can walk the walk--which Mr. Hackett has lucidly defined as having a football coach who can "produce . . . results."
I'm keeping my fingers crossed, Mr. Hackett.
In 2014 fans talked about boycotting games and refused to donate because of grudges with Brandon and Hoke. Now that both of them are gone can we finally get behind the team and fill the Big House with 113K fans instead of the 102K shit we had this year. Can we finally let the RR debate go because it's no longer relevant. Who cares if we'd have given him a 4th year? Maybe we go 11-2 and maybe we go 7-5 again. It doesn't matter. That was four years ago. Brady Hoke got one thing right when he said that "this is Michigan fergodsakes" because we are Michigan and we better have 60,000 fans at the Spring Game to show the new coach, recruits, and nation that we are college football's greatest fanbase.
Hackett did a very good job with the presser. He has a completely different tone than Brandon. Now I don't know if he's the guy long term, but I have more confidence in him now.
