"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Hoke took a team hoping for 8-4 with nary a prayer to sweep Nebraska and OSU and came out 10-2 and achieved the latter, removing that giant 2900 day monkey off the backs of hundreds of thousands of UM fans. He has exceeded all expectations. And he recruits like a beast. And his coordinators are fabulous.
Who cares what the truckers down South do now to try and make themselves a winning program again. Order is restored in Ann Arbor, and 8-11 win seasons should once again become the norm, with the occasional run at the national championship.
God Bless Coaches Hoke, Borges, Mattison and all those seniors!
Loss will cause me to... Harbaugh?
Win will cause me to... HARBAUGH. - B. Cook
I expect no worse than 10 win seasons from now on, in the future, a 9 win season should be considered subpar.
We now play 12 games a year and we'll be in the hunt for the Legends title year in and year out, that would make 13 games and with a bowl game 14, so yeah, I expect 10 win seasons at a minimum.
Living out west and following Hoke and what he accomplished in San Diego, I knew he would be a great coach, recruiter and motivator. I was anxious for everyone to see what I had already seen, that players will run through walls for the guy.
Do you notice how everybody now repeats how he says things, like "beat ohio", talk about a movement, the man is influential and I'm so glad he is our coach. Also, he will kick Urban's ass on a regular basis.
anyone notice that spielman doesn't say a single word after michigan seeled the win? not one thing. it's like he got up and left. i thought he was fairly impartial other than constantly pointing out the 7 straight losses, but once the game was in the books, he was gone.
i like to imagine he was sitting in the corner hugging himself and crying as he rocked back and forth. possibly being held by urban meyer who is also crying.
I hate Spielman. I'll have to listen to him and the 97.1 crowd bitch and moan all week. It will be amazing. The level of delusion floating around this state right now is incredible. The guy in front of me at the game just kept repeating "7 straight years," after the pick.
After the game it was all "freshman quarterback," "had he hit Posey the Buckeyes win," "new head coach," "new players on defense," yada yada yada...so soon they forget what we went through.
Formerly akron_wolverine and columbus_wolverine. New home, new name. A year in Columbus was enough.
I was house-sitting this weekend (the house of a Buckeye friend to boot) and I underestimated how short the ceiling was in their basement and when I thrust my fist in celebration, I punched the ceiling. But it hurt so good.
For a' that, an' a' that,
Our toils obscure an' a' that,
The rank is but the guinea's stamp,
The man's the gowd for a' that.
