“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”
You recently stated that you would not be attending the football game against Maryland on November 22nd as a boycott against the current athletic department administration and Coach Hoke. While I commend you for this stance, as you are one of the loudest and brightest voices currently covering Michigan sports, I do have a question for you about your choice.
There are two more home games before November 22nd. October 11th sees Michigan hosting Penn State, in what will most certainly be a heavily scrutinized game played during prime time. November 1st is Homecoming against Indiana. Why is it that you chose to boycott, and by extension, essentially call for your readers to boycott this game? Would it not have made more sense to try to get this done for one of the other two games? Especially considering that the Marlyand game is Senior Day, it seems like that might be a poor choice. Through all of this turmoil, the one thing we all here have agreed on is tthat supporting the current players is of the utmost importance.
Again, I want to make it clear that I agree with your stance on this matter, but only seek some clarification on the timing.
Per Mlive, UM president and board of regents to meet this morning regarding the handling of the injuries to Shane Morris. Hopefully this meeting ends with the decision to relive both Brandon and Hoke of their irresponsibilities!
Shane has been wanting to play for Michigan his entire life. Now this has happened.
His coaches and system have failed him and gotten him hurt. I can only imagine what's going through his head with all this press as well. This is not what he signed up to play for here. I just hope he can come through this and still be a great QB for us.
Thank you dearly for executing your blocking assignments on the play after Shane was concussed. You were, quite literally, the last line of defense.
Had any of you slipped up we might be having a very different discussion right now and it was only because you guys did your jobs on that play we might have avoided real tragedy.
Sorry if I missed this discussion, but it seems like he has been given a total pass. He's the QB coach and is staying on the sidelines so he can talk to the QBs in person during the game. He is the coach on the staff that had to know Morris' condition best and the one whose responsibility it was to get Bellomy ready. I don't know if he's the one that told Shane to go back in, but in nomal circumstances I would expect him to be.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not absolving Hoke of the blame. He was in charge and this was too important for him to delegate. I just don't get how Nussmeier's role isn't getting questioned. I can't see an explanation where he's not at fault too.
