We've got a lot of Lawyers on the board, and while there is a huge amount of group-think on the board and most poeple assume Hoke is gone there is chatter that if he wins out he could keep his job. I think that's ridiculously short-sighted (as do most of you probably).
So - be devil's advocate. How can someone (anyone!) justify retaining Hoke after that 60 minutes of Yakety Sax followed by a team with 4 new OL starters, a freshman QB and RB putting up more points in East Lansing than Hoke's teams have scored against MSU during his tenure? Why is OSU so much better with their brand new pieces? Is it anything but coaching?

It sounds like Diggs will be out for the rest of the season. Hopefully he gets well soon and this doesn't affect his promising career, or more importantly his health and wellbeing.
I know its a little late but i had to reinstall editing softeware. For those who didnt see it BTN did a nice feature on Devin Gardner. I knw we all give him a hard time on the field but he wears the winged helmet and he plays with his heart. Hes given this team everything and we should at least respect that. He coulda takin the easy route and said see ya but he stuck with the program. No doubt in my mind he loves michigan. Enjoy and as always GO BLUE!!! BEAT THE TERPS!!
P.S i will be uploading bball games starting tomorrow against Wayne St. Cant wait!!!
For all of the angst, heartache, and pain we've experienced under the current staff - I am SO glad our coaches don't routinely throw players under the bus.
Brian Kelly is a Douche. I would never want any kid of mine to play for this a$$hole. That is all.
Reporter: Brian, how can you, I know they're not all on Golson, especially the picks, but the fumbles, consistently-
Kelly: Why aren't they all on Golson?
Kelly interrupted to make sure Golson received the full blame for his turnovers before immediately backing down when reminded of what actually occurred (as well as things he previously said).
Looking at Jerry Palm's predicted bowl outcomes, it would appear with a win Saturday UM could avoid the Quick Lane Bowl and get a trip to Dallas.
We'd be competing with Rutgers for said bowl. Rutgers is 5-4 with a very hobbled Gary Nova and just got decimated by Wisconsin 37-0.
Rutgers remaining opponents are Indiana, @MSU, @Maryland. While Indiana is horrid so is Rutgers right now. Nova went 5/15 vs Wiscy and his replacement went 2/12. Vegas has this line as only 6; at least Indiana has Coleman. Lose that and Rutgers is not bowling at 0-3 the rest of the way. But even if they win, chalk up Maryland and MSU as losses and Rutgers is 6-6.
That should send us to Dallas in place of Rutgers w/ a win for UM v Maryland - due to the fergodsakes this is Michigan factor. (Rutgers goes to Detroit in that case if bowl eligible) I think a 6-6 Michigan gets invited to Dallas even over a 7-5 Rutgers.
Palm has the opposing team in Heart of Dallas bowl as Rice who if you recall lost to ND the week before us 48-17. So it sounds like an even matchup. But if not Rice it would be some mid tier Conference USA foe which (sigh) we could be competitive with - the likes of Middle Tennesee, UAB, LA Tech, or UTEP. But I think its better for the psyche of this program at this moment to beat one of these teams than see GA Tech or UCLA roll us by 30.
Aside from UM - with the Big 10 looking outside the playoffs it sets up the conference for an attractive bowl schedule, with some fun games that are winnable; conference could actually have a winning bowl record with this slate.
- Cotton - OSU vs TCU or Baylor
- Fiesta - Nebraska v Arizona State
- Taxslayer - Minnesota v Missouri
- Outback - Wisconsin v A&M
- Capital - MSU v Auburn
- San Fran - Iowa v USC
- Holiday - Maryland v UCLA
- Pinstripe - PSU v GA Tech (we dont want anything to do with this game, GA Tech can score a ton)
