There have been a some exceptions from time to time, but going all the way back to Bo, usually we flame out in bowl games
Copper Bowl/BWW Bowl Open Thread
Funchess will become the second Braylon when he completes the circle and drops an easy fourth down conversion on a 2 yard out against OSU.
Shane has been awesome tonight. Great glimpse into the future. Dropped balls, bad playcalling, and poor defense have killed Michigan tonight.
1 reverse works in a game 2 keeps them thinking, however running reverses as your primary running play will not work. Fire al for calling 6 reverses in a game, fire Hoke for letting him. I have fucking had it.
The D is bound to get a turnover here
Great fire starter. Enough!
There are 2000 people standing behind you (if not 10 times that amount) who will gladly throw the money at them.
This isn't on Hoke. It's on the buffoon that hired him in the first place. Instead of a football coach/teacher... DB hired a cheerleader and goodwill ambassador. Yeah for us...
Rutgers is going to kill us next year
the whole O that's delivered 6 points so far. Drops, poor blocking, whatever - alll reflect his OC role.
Big Ten with Rutgers and Maryland 0-4 by the end of the nught
We have the guy, we just dont put him in. Run Green Run!!!
Kansas state is kicking our ass. Wow.
I hate terms like "unwatchable" and "unacceptable", but damn, they're looking mighty fine now.
The rich rod defenses had less talent..
Our offense gets a pass from me. Our defense? WTF?
season. You just get the feeling this entire staff has an immunity necklace and we'll see all the same jokers on the sideline next season.
Basketball won't even be a relief without McGary.
God this sucks.
Schwartz better get canned after Sunday's game.
That last pass was right on the numbers. He's throwing great balls. No picks or near picks. He's showing good mobility and has not been sacked. If Michigan had a run game and receivers didn't have key drops, this offense would be humming along perfectly.
Based on this game, he should be the starter next year.
He needs a little finese on his throws. Can't throw 200 MPH balls every time, but for a true freshmen in a bowl game with all the pressure of the Michigan fanbase, he's looking stellar. He gets all the credit. I've stopped with the #firehoke/#fireborges line on Twitter. It's now just #firebrandon.
Fuck it I'm out. Good night all happy new year! See ya next year.
Just doesn't give a shit about this game. No energy or fire. This one was over before the second half started
I have been thinking the same thing.
Great pass defense!
Seriously looks like mississippi state. All over again. Wow, our cb's are bad.
Only way we stop him is a drop
One has a lot more wins than the other.
One got better every year..
Not all that hard to do when you a miss bowl games in your first 2 seasons.
Hoke is an illustration in regression
Rrod had Steve Threet Hoke had Denard in year 1.
This is true, and I think Rich probably got the short end of the stick but improving from 3 to 5 to 7 wins really isn't impressive and shouldn't be hailed as some accomplishment.
iPhone butchered sentence, sorry about that.
Yet 2-4 in rivalry games or 3-5 in the big ten In your third year shouldn't win you immunity. This game is eerily similar to the miss st game 4 yrs ago. Flat out embarrassed on D by an average team and some early promise then nothing on O.
And Hoke's worst year is RR's best.
Hoke would be offered an Arizona level HC job if he were dumped by Michigan? I get the RichRod hate---but within the coaching world, he's on a different plane than hoke.
How is that bit of information even remotely relevant to comparing one coach to the other at Michigan? Answer, it's not.
Michigan recovers the fumble!
Yes!!!! KSU stops themselves again!
Now can we get a fucking TD?!!??
What the fuck was I thinking?
I had it too.
Need a TD here.
And we kick it off with a false start. Fuck me.
I knew what the responses to this would be and it still amazes me. If only RR would have clapped his hands and not said State and said Fergodsakes more.
This team has so much talent...its sad Hoke can't do anything with it. I bet Urbie would have won at least 10 games with our squad.
Green is hurt or he's gone. Where the hell is he?
He's had at least 1 rush for 5 yards.
It is making me wonder if Green was the rumored transfer. Why would the staff keep him out for this game?
Keep contain fergodsakes.
Now receivers just have to catch the ball.
Not that this game is in doubt, anyway, but God $&$%^$%# !%@%@ AJ Williams for fuck's fucking sake
Finally create a break and shit right down our legs. I hate the way this fucking team plays. And that's on Fucking Brady.
Wow - that was very impressive strength in the pocket by Shane. He's been a serious revelation.
Throw it deep to Chesson III
Morris' throws look crisp, fast, and generally well-placed (a tad high at times). I'm truly excited for his future at Michigan, if this game is any indication. I hope he doesn't get stuck in a culture of incompetence and ineptitude.
...this game gives me hope from an O perspective. Thought D was covered but perhaps an off night. An oline that improves will make us really good
Get the fucking play off. This is disgusting.
Always a cheerleader, never a winner
Fire 'em up, Brady, lol.
Why do we not just run a passing spread offense? Our run game is an absolute joke. 1.8 yards a carry (22 yards on 12 attempts).
15 minutes left to this season. The clock cant run fast enough.
Place me firmly on the fire Hoke train. Guy is not a good coach
No one ever said he was. His coaching track record shows that. Only
one league championship in 11 years as a head coach
He was hired because he convinced DB that he understood what "Michigan football" was all about. He had a connection to Lloyd who had a connection to Bo.
Fire 'em up, Brady, lol.
Pathetic. We have no ability to stop the run. We cover for shit. We can't run the ball.
Sucks to be US.
Not dead yet. Still hope.
Clap clap clapping...I've lost all faith in him..it's RR all over again
Clap clap clapping...I've lost all faith in him..it's RR all over again
Hoke and john harbaugh buddies? Wonder if hoke would agree to slide down to dline coach and john head coach? I kid. I kid....sort of.
Because the D-line is so good.....wait what?
A 3 and out on the turnover. "Missed opportunity"
we still have only 6 pts. No running game. Didn't one of the players say something clicked after the OSU game? It sure doesn't show yet.
Yeah, I'm done believing any of the practice hype I hear about this team.
Yeah, I think it is time for the coaches to stop talking and start showing results. It gets really tiring to have your hopes built up that progress is taking place, then have them dashed by the actual performance.
I'm tired of talk from the Athletic Department and Staff and whant to see results on the field!
The refs keeping us in it
This has not been a fun game.
Hoke has to go
I want to assault the hipters in this t-mobile ad.
Is Spielman insinuating that Gardner might enter the draft?
Morris has looked good for first start, but our offense still looks bad...6 points?
There is a theme in all three phases - no speed or explosiveness.
Dodged a bullet on the punt return...
Put shallman in, he looks the part
Be a fan! Were one td away from a game.
Why do these announcers keep acting like Gardner has a decision to make about coming back? They can't be suggesting that he is going to declare for the draft.
He will have two degrees. Maybe he just says fuck football?
(I don't see that as even possible, but ya)
Pretty sure Gardner is telling Shane he knows how he feels...
I'm going to be fat enough to be on our coaching staff by the end of this miserable season. Grief eating is fucking killing me.
on an otherwise horrible Michigan football season. The bright spots are few and far between. If there is great talent on this team, I haven't seen it. Whether it's infinitely young or horribly coach or both I don't know, but based on the current amount of evidence, the future looks very bleak. Aside from Morris, but a couple of years under Borges and he'll regress probably.
John Harbaugh to Michigan. Keeps Brady on the staff. You heard it here first!!
I would cry tears of joy if this came true.
Put that fucking guy in the admin somewhere and pay him to slap kids on the fannie.
No reason to have him on the staff.
Bring in a real staff.
Fucking Countess missing that tackle, the nightmare just does not stop.
Give up the 3rd and 12 conversion, wide open receiver again. Same fucking shit.
Anyone else tired of the defensive celebration whenever there is a good play. Complete a series and get off the field.
Quit celebrabrating like your winning.
3rd and 12...Easy breezy for opponents.
That 3rd and 12 play MAKES ME WANT TO FUCKING KILL SOMEONE
Our dlineman put their goddamn hands up?
The D-Line coach is terrible????
This staff is like dead men walking next year and that isn't good for recruiting.
We already have seen what happens when they miss on a recruiting season.
Can we please get all the young guys snaps and prepare for next year? I would like to see a healthy dose of Ojemudia, Wormley, Henry, Gedeon, Bolden, Lewis, Stribling, Thomas, etc.
Defense can't get off the field. This is the worst coached Michigan team in a bowl game I have ever seen, bar none.
This is an embarrassment.
Shane is doing a nice job, though.
That's it. I'm out. Even when the front 7 gets it done, we give up a long 3rd down.
Good ole' arm tackles. Feels like this game should be about 42-6, kind of amazed we're only down 3 scores.
Countess has regressed.
We are in trouble
I'm fairly certain the Michigan defense has never seen the forward pass.
This is as bad a display by our corners as we have had in some time.
Countess looking terrible tonight too
Countess is really having a terrible game. He needs to be pulled now.
This is definitely one of the worst games of the year.
The movement and energy of the team is just as uninspired as the gator bowl.
God this team really sucks
This game is so boring.
Fucking pathetic performance and preparation by this coaching staff. I hope I wake up in the morning and hoke is fired. Pathetic.
no reason and it allows a first down. And now Lockett eludes Countess. Poor night for zither CBs.
I'm tired of watching bend but don't break. They give up a ton of big plays bending so what not get aggresive.
Jesus fucking Christ we are terrible.
I surrender to the incompetency of this entire coaching staff
I'd like to applaud our D for turning K State into Peyton manning and the Denver Broncos
has made just about every opposing QB look like an all conference QB this year.
Vince Young rushes for another first down.
Should be embarrassed as our defense has regressed to the point it is worse than our offense
So who is excited to see what this staff can do in year 4?
We need 5 years to see the entire gamut if their incompetence. So reason to cut our losses now. /s
My hand is not raised.
Slow certain death.
Gee, this has been fun.
The dline is getting fucking killed......they are such a fucking liability. ,and Hoke is their coach. How awesome.
They had 3 fucking coaches!!!
too many cooks in the kitchen
Been terrible all year. Multiple coaches and the line is shit. Ridiculous.
had a possession where they didn't hold the ball for at least 5 minutes of game clock?
I was exited about countess And peppers next year. I'm sure peppers will pass on blue now.
Jabrill is staying blue, he's not going anywhere.
Weak. Everywhere. Just weak as hell. Soft. Nougat. Softer than a 3 Musketeers.
This is the exact moment that 51st percentile of the fan base swayed to the "okay, fuck it, fire them all" side of the hateometer
No punts forced. Way to go D!
Not one punt the entire game. What a damn disgrace!
Well the good news is the Hoke almost has to fire Borges now!
But but but backup QB!!! Execution!! Not his fault nope!
I actually think Borgess has done a pretty good job today.
There's definitely been some play calls that I'd consider questionable but in general I don't think Borges has done that bad. Mattison and the defense have been awful today.
Is capable of making a decision
Do they need a volunteer to hand out pink slips at Schembechler Hall Monday morning?
Maybe he is our best corner right now?
Considering what Taylor and Counteass have looked like.
Considering what Taylor and Counteass have looked like.
Considering what Taylor and Countess have looked like.
and put Mattison on the hotseat
Is the yellow on our Helmets that SPARKLE PAINT??? Omg. Fire brandon. Thats the last straw
And this is this shit we've come up with. Unbelievable.
Was kovacs and roh that good? What happened to us?
Is no way in hell countess or Taylor should be starting cb's next year, one of them moves to safety and peppers should start. What a pathetic performance by this whole defense.
For just being happy with a Win and not trying to make a statement or run up the score
18 points in under 9 minutes? Please, we struggle to score that in 60 minutes of play.
It's only a 6 field goal ball game.
This made me laugh
because I've accidentally gotten drunk
It's no wonder the vast majority of my 14 year old son's classmates are State fans. All my son knows is Michigan football as a bed wetting mess.
The TV in my hotel room just turned itself off. I should follow it's lead.
Aside from Morris' talent...I'm not sure what to be encouraged about.
This can't end soon enough
The amount of spineless bitching on this site is at epic proportions now. Good lord. It's a freshman QB, an incompetent OC, and a team with nothing really to play for. I'm not surprised by this result. Does that mean Michigan is going to implode? No. No wonder I frequent this place less and less.
Good for you cool guy.
Oh you. You are so special aren't you?
Did I say that? I just said our fans need to learn how to take a loss with some dignity. But then, the current generation of fans are all emo and love to say "fuck" a lot. Good for YOU.
Go root for Stanford, Jesus.
Jesus is a Cardinal?
Being this unprepared, after a month, should not!
Being this unprepared, after a month, should not!
ND is going to pass us in all-time winning percentage in eight minutes. I'm sorry, but this is fucking depressing.
At "nothing to play for". Seriously? How many chances do u have to play for the team?
Well, look at the TV screen. The implosion is happening.
My dog is passed out and has given up. Fuck you, Brady Hoke.
KSU player just made the tackle with his head while lying on the ground. Michigan's defense can't stop KSU standing upright.
To those that have to make the dumbass comparison between RR and Hoke. I witnessed the 2011 Gator Bowl first hand and that was the ugliest game I've ever seen Michigan play, ever. The offense couldn't do anything (Imagine that, an RR offense couldn't move the ball), and the defense was atrocious. While Michigan is losing tonight, they at least look like they give a shit tonight, but just can't execute. So how about we reallly just put the RR/Hoke stuff to bed and just forget RR? It's over, let it go.
You realize we haven't forced a punt tonight and our only stops have been a fumble (a play after they dropped a sure TD) and a missed FG? I think comparisons are apt.
I'm aware of that. I'm also aware of the score which isn't even remotely approaching 52-to who cares. That Gator bowl there was nothing to take away but negativity. Atleast at this game we can take some positives in how Morris has played. That Gator bowl was over at the half, there's still a remote chance that Michigan can still win this game. Saying they are the same is just wrong.
The offense couldn't move the ball and the defense was as atrocious.
Doesn't sound anything like this game.
Seriously? We aren't the slightest bit competitive in this game. They have driven down the field without stop. Zero punts. One missed FG. 9 yd per play. Like 98% 3rd down conversion. If they even get to third down which is rare. Can't cover, can't defend the run. Make their QB look like Peyton Manning and their D like the Steel curtain.
On offense we are Down 18 with 7 min left and we are throwing screens and 3 yd patterns? Fuck me.
You see differences and I see similarities. Both are truly embarrassing performances. The kind that should cost a lot of people their jobs because it is indicative of the season and not sure what hope their is for next year.
I understand, but did any of you actually watch the 2011 Gator Bowl? The game I'm comparing to? The 52-14 ass kicking, embarassing, total clusterfuck loss in Jacksonville? Yeah, this isn't any better result wise, but sorry Shane Morris tonight >> Denard then.
Shane Morris just then just threw his first bad pass for an int.
If I remember correctly it appeared that Rich rod changing his play calling to protect Denard from injury to protect him from having to use Gardner and thus ruin his chance at a medical redshirt.
I could be completely reaching here but it seems our players are always weaker than the other teams' players?
I don't think Wellman is a good S&C coach. I'd much rather have Barwis back. But there see other staff changes I'd like to see before Wellman is gone
Never would've thought this before the game but I really think we need to clean house.
What is the upside for next year? Abysmal offense in all but like 3 games this year. Our o line has shown zero progress during the season. We have one good receiver who is graduating and another who is way too inconsistent to rely on.
Our D has been downright miserable and has also gotten worse as the season has gone on. Has any player improved from last year to this year? Our head coach is a D line coach yet arguably our d line is the worst part of an awful defense and can't get any pressure on its own.
Job to make this team better buddy, it's not just this bowl game, they have lost 6/7. This staff is over their head.
wanted to see the defense come out and dominate tonight. This has been a huge disappointment.
Shane Morris was OK in the first half, but the entire offense has been pathetic in the second half. The offense looks like RR year 1 and the defense looks like RR year 3.
Hoke needs to be honest and ADMIT they have done a terrible job and changes need to be made. If at least three changes don't happen in the off-season then Hoke has truly failed. And Fred Jackson doesn't count. The rumors of his retirement make that change necessary and the performance of the RBS just piles on that idea.
Looks like my gut feeling was wrong and drunk about us winning. 2014 here we come
I've never had a rant/blow up on MGoBlog, and I'm not starting today. That being said, we are not even competitive. We're not. The game against Ohio State was an abberation (And don't give me that ohio crap. We shouldn't get to say that anymore. They are Ohio State and they are where we hope to be. The novelty wore off of that two years ago). We are not that team, we are this team. I just don't get it. Can you imagine if Bill Snyder got the recruiting classes we've been getting? Or Mark Dantonio? Seriously. I think Brady Hoke is a good guy and it is obvious that he loves Michigan, but I am joining the chorus of people who want him to have a Schembechler level meltdown at some point and spit some fire. And I want to hear Brandon say that what we are seeing is not acceptable and will not be tolerated at any point going forward. I'm not even asking for firing. I just want one of the people charged with leading this program to show some of the passion that they all claim to possess.
obviously we don't see what goes on behind the scenes, but judging by the continuation of mediocrity, it's hard to believe any substantial changes are made. If I hear "the expectation is to compete for BT Championships" one more time I will puke. This team is hot garbage from the top down
After 3 years I still I have clue what Brady Hole actually does. Anyone?
When he was caught singing YMCA by a tv camera
Well here we are, 3rd and long again.
Keep up the 4 yard passes, like we are not down 18 pts. Fucking moron. And wtf are our corners doing? Our dline sucks balls. This year needs to end.
his scheme for next year.
1. Have to change the CB situation - Peppers and Thomas in man-2-man press the whole time ?
2. Ryan at SDE to generate consistent pressure?
Something to eliminate the porous effect.
Forgive me if I sound like a lunatic, but I think that Mone will provide something we are missing, and I think he will do it sooner than later.
7 min to go. PUNT?
Talk about white flag
This team is not well prepared and lacks physical toughness
Is a nice looking older lady
Her sons 19? She's probably not that old.
Down 18 with 7 min left and we are throwing screens and 3 yd patterns? Fuck me.
Whoa, Morris' mom is a smokeshow.
Rare bright spot tonight.
Fuck you Borges and Hoke. Yeah- add that too stats LSA
How about the block in the back?
Shane's mom is a fox.
Yea she is.
You know Shane heard about that growing up.
Love Leeann's reaction to hoke sending out the punt team!
Lewans... Stupid iphone
Sorry boys. Thanks for all your efforts. Coaches let you down.
I feel like this could have gone better.
He was wearing the headset.
of the guy that the Southpark characters were playing against in the World of Warcraft episode. I hate him so much and also can't stand why these reporters won't ask the hard questions. "Hey you had a month to get ready and you ran 5 end arounds, why?" You were down 18, so why are you calling 3 yard outs? Hey Hoke, you coach the dline and they have not improved all year, maybe you aren't cut out for the job.
Another 2 yard pass, followed by another 2 yard pass, to infinity.
i remember when hoke pooped gold. Now it's just liquid food poisoning.
I haven't been this down since the gator bowl, at least there was something to look forward to after that, a new coach. What a long offseason it will be.
why the fuck did I pick Michigan?
Guy just said "they took advantage of the bowl practices." Really? He must be watching a different game than I am.
Fuck, shit, ass, damn.
ass, damn, shit.
Put in Shane!
I made a huge mistake. I thought Michigan would come out and be prepared and ready to dominate. Boy was I wrong. It's time to lower my expectations for this program.
You know what's scary?
We will probably be worse next year.
I would say not on paper, but with these coaches, I guess they could get worse.
Our lines were owned on both sides ... Again.
Linebackers out of position. DBs too lost or too slow or too something.
Please just let this game end so that we can all close our eyes and pretend the entire year never happened.
When do we play App State again?
This team seriously sucks and I'm not sure we will see improvement if there aren't staff changes
So much for Gallon getting the record.
We are so goddam bad at football it just kills me
The Defensive Line Performance has been horrible all year long and Hoke takes on that responsibility. If he can't successfully coach up our DLine after 3 years on the job, how is he qualified for the Head Coaching job?
why we don't play press on receivers. Mattison says he needs to play off them b/c they can't press, but we play 10 yds off them and still get burned deep. Why not at least try to jam them at the line and throw off their timing. Try something new. I'm sick of the lack of adjustments on both sides of the ball and stubborness of Borges and Mattison.
all tip our hats to our awesome senior class. They have been through thick and thin in AA. Thank you for everything seniors!
First time I've heard Clark's name all night.
Not going to the NFL? Really?
I wonder if we will hear how the D only gave up 3 points in the second half in the presser?
I may be speaking too soon.
No TDs. No forced punts. But hey, we won the turnover battle.
Holy shit - a punt!!!!
most people went to sleep already so they don't witness this. Unfortunately Michigan never even woke up
Shane Morris Snowflake thread only?
He did fine for a freshman, but bottom line is 6 points. 2 piss ant field goals.
Stribling starts next year. Best pure corner we have.
Exactly as I feared. Exactly what I saw from these coaches from PSU on. Our poor players. They are being led by men incapable of leading them.
Going to finally call some deep passes or stick with the screen game?
I kinda wish this year the practices were televised and the games themselves were not.
From what I hear, it would mean .i could have watched some good quality Michigan football this year that way.
Despite that, i'm hopeful for next year. I'm too tired to remember why, however.
Catches one in the flat!
For 0 yards!
There is the record.
Someone makes a catch.
Gets the record!
Aaaaaand, good feelings gone.
the chances of getting a new OC next year? Honest question. I know Borges was said to be coming back, but please let that be coach speak to keep from distracions.
Spoke too soon about winning the TO battle.
Last stat may be a tackle!
Congrats to gallon
No call for trashing Shane. He played his heart out and played well.
We just took it up the ass!
I hope DB and everyone else gets fired
for a miss on a 30 yd FG and a dropped TD pass, it'd be 41-6.
Well, this is the asskicking we knew was coming.
What a fucking disgusting season.
I like Bill Snyder. He can coach and he does it the right way. I wish he was our coach.
I'll bet his best recruiting year is not as good as Hoke's worst, even the RR transition year. Yet he schools our ass. i'f rather have him. He's only 72, maybe Brandon can lean on the boosters for some quid....
Basically my feeling are:
-Shane Morris has the potential to be a very good QB. Kid has a rocket for an arm and seems pretty confident considering hes a true fresh.
-For the life of me I don't understand why we play off coverage. Even if your corners aren't covering well we should still jam them at the line.
-We need to blitz more.
-We may have the worst dline in all of college football.
-We may have the worst interior oline in all of college football.
-Al Borges is an idiot. His play calling is infuriating. Is it really necessary to run a jet sweep on every other series? Is it really necessary to run the option with a pocket passer on 3rd and 5?
-Shane Morris has a hot mom.
Please take Northfleet out and put in somebody that can actually be effective on kick returns. Let's see what Dymonte can do. Why the hell not?
Our rushing stats are now respectable, right????
what i have always said. Hoke is in over his head in a BIG way. He was a losing coach when we hired him.
He is a mediocre coach AT BEST. There is no way in hell he will ever be on a level with Urban Meyer and there is no way we ever get back to winning the BIG10 with him.
There are at least 3 or 4 coachs in the league better than him and one of them is in this state too.
He is terrible. Simply terrible. And the staff he has assembled is not good, by any measure.
We better get used to seasons like this for as long as he is here. No matter how many 4 and 5 star players you bring in, if you cannot make them great players...it just does not matter.
We are bad in all phases of the game. And thats coaching.
He was able to develop 2-star players at Ball State and SDSU into NFL players and turned both of those programs around. Where did that ability go?
That's nice for Toussaint.
we haz touchball?
Now????!!!!!! Where the hell!!!???? What the???!!!
Now they make the 2-pt. conversion.
play vs OSU. Creative and Gallon could run if necessary.
Did she just call him Ron Falk, or am I just tired and angry?
Lewan makes a TD saving tackle.
Morris makes a great run and some great throws leading to a TD.
Borges makes a creative call for the 2 point conversion.
Hope this is an omen for next year.
At least I can hope can't I?
Wow, this is Cooperstown-level grasping
Going for 2 won't conceal this ass whooping. Wtf.
Well, at least that trophy is a fucking blight. Would have preferred to win, but we don't need that shit in our trophy case.
Well, in Hoke's defense, he hasn't even had one cycle of his recruits come through yet. A lot of these guys are still Rich Rods guys and the ones that are Hokes are still green behind the ears. I'll give him another year or two before I'm ready to send him packing.
Neither did richrod. Why give hoke more time?
is the football season is a long way off. Hopefully some massive changes happen because if they don't, next season might be worse. Hopefully we hold on to all our recruits. This program needs them to rebuild this program.
Because Rich Rod, if I remember correctly, had terribly ranked recruiting classes. Hoke on the other hand has had some pretty high ranking recruiting classes. I just think eventually the talent will show. Right now we're playing with some terribly ranked recruiting classes and they are coincidentally, terrible.
Those RR classes were ranked #10, #8 and #20. So I guess we should be a terrible 13th or so in the country based on those terrible classes.
Except we are probably about #45 and there's many teams ahead of us performance-wise who would never sniff those kind of rankings for their classes. Including Kansas State.
Where the h*** was that play call against OSU? Arrgh. Great play. Worthless time to call it.
Shane looked fine, nothing to panick about there. However, the whole coaching staff is a hair on fire shit show. Really, could not force a punt until 4 min were left in Q4? I guess that 7-5 KState team was just too much of a juggernaught.
The nice thing about this game is that it teaches one that recruiting really doesn't matter at all, I would love to see a chart on M verus K-State or any of the other teams that Bitch Slapped M this year (execpt Ohio) and see if any of their best classes in the last 10 surpassed Michigan's worst class. So hey, why obsess over any of it? Done.
The bad thing about this game is that it teaches that coaching matters a ton. Why can't these coaches at least "hold serve" with the talent they bring in? Seems like too much to ask these days.
2013 is officially over, good riddance.
I read somewhere that K State's recruiting classes the last 5 years havve aaveraged being ranked 70th, they are usually in the 60s and had the 93rd ranked class a few years ago.
