Not saying that Borges will be fired, but who are your ideal candidates if it were to happen? If this post is too close to a snowflake thread, feel free to delete.
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I don't know but I can't take Borges anymore. I just can't.
See that's the thing with myself. I want him gone, but don't know who to get. I'd honestly like to run a hybrid offense like Nebraska, although we'll only have DG for one more year.
I have no clue who we would get, but it has to be better than this. I have no words anymore, man.
The argument from some Borges supporters (and I'm not saying you are saying this) is "well, who would you hire?"
It really is an incredibly stupid argument to suggest that there is no one that Michigan could possibly hire that would be better. Somewhere is the next Chip Kelly at New Hampshire, or Rich Rod at Tulane, or Malzahn or Briles at a freaking high school.
And i'm not even remotely suggesting that you have to hit on the next great innovator like those guys. But there are tens, if not hundreds, of coaches capable of running a not-extreme-spread offense that are great candidates. Oregon State? San Jose State? Bowling Green? NFL position coaches?
I don't even know, but just because the average fan can't name the person doesn't mean that there aren't highly thought-of offensive minds that are eager to get a chance to prove themselves at a high profile position like Michigan.
Why the fuck did you just go off on me? I just said not sure who we would get, as I was answering the question in the OP but want Borges gone along with saying whoever we would get would be better than this. Chill the fuck out.
The OC for Slippery Rock is
Parrish is currently pre-occupied in Ypsilanti.
You are right, they will bring back Debord. Wasn't he already in the Athletic Department or with the team in some capacity?
They have to know the only thing more unpopular than Borges might be bringing back one of the retreads!
because Borges wont be let go and Kiffin doesnt want to go back down to an OC.
OL Coaching and Runing Game coordinator turned offensive coordinator. Back up the brinks truck.
His job title is actually "Andrew Luck Director of Offense". I'm not making this up. Yeah, I could live with him for sure with how their offensive line has been playing.
Thanks to a wealthy donor. Like the Don Shepherd AD at Michigan...
While I was watching Stanford beat up Oregon, I thought this exact same thing. He offense is tough and gritty with an element of the spread.
Charlie Taaffe UCF
Able to develop QBs, with 2 available at all times, so no unprepared Bellomy 2012
I hope they get Adrian Klemm from UCLA for OLine too
Anyone else at this point...
FWIW..Hoke just said in his presser that he liked the playcalling..wtf??????
Mayhem. More fun
I have no clue what Al was thinking. He better step up the rest of the season because his job's on the line. That would not really look good to recruits or other possible OC candidates.
She sounds hideous...
Scot Loeffler, Cam Cameron, Tom Herman, basically anyone.

No respectable OC will come here with Hoke's caveman philosophy and hot seat.
Fred Flintstone is his name
That's just not true. Hoke is very well respected so as long as they had similar a philosophy (pro-style is not the same as caveman - did you watch the Stanford game?), lots of guys would love to come here. And he's not on the hot seat.
Watching Stanford beat up Oregon or Alabama against anyone and it is obvious that the pro style is still more than effective. Stanford has good recruits, but no better than the guys Michigan has been getting, no reason this style of offense won't work. In fact, most would argue its really the best way to a national championship.
I have been a somewhat defender of Borges, but the offense has gotten worse as the season goes on, that is unexcuseable.
I do have to also wonder how much of this is strength and conditioning too. You watch those guys get absolutely blown off the line and that is some technique but some strength and conditioning as well. In some ways the team reminds me of the 2005 team, which is well known to have suffered from a very inferior strength and conditioning program.
If you can run your offense well, you can win. If you can't, it will struggle. Whether it's a spread or pro style, it just needs to work.
We'll see. I love when people are so sure about what's true. Hot seats are created largely by fans, in my experience, and it sure seems like a lot of faith was lost after this one.
Dude knows how to prep an OL, and right now that's all I'd really like to see.
Isn't that Kugler's dad?
He's also our next year starting center's dad.
But why would he leave a head coaching gig (unless fired obvs) to be an OC?
If he gets fired, he would probably go back to the NFL.
Is way less burdensome than walking to Ann Arbor from San Diego. I would be willing to chip in to fly him out here (coach class).
More seriously, it's a big time gig with a chance to coach with his son? Also, it may be a pay raise(?)
"Coach class" -- I see what you did there.
He can coach his son.
As long as we have Hoke as head coach it is someone who runs a MANBALL offense.
See Stanford and Bama.
Where is my post did I say that it didn't work.
Wisconsin runs a manball offense. They have won a game or two over the last ten years with mediocre recruiting.
Ideal candidate: 6'4", rocket arm, rugged good looks, and the ability to call a game that produces positive rushing yards against stunningly bad defenses. No visors allowed, though. I hate visors.
...he has to have kind eyes. I think that's important.
the tigers already covered most of your categories with the brad ausmus hiring. are you suggesting we lure him away from the tigers?
Brilliant! What about Gisele, though?
Is the recruiting coordinator / hostess / hostess coach.
Whoever has got the best credentials. And whoever can actually develop QBs. Call them and tell them to name their price.
Also, Bama's and Stanford's O-Line coaches. Call them and tell them to name their price, too.
That is all.
People keep saying that - why would Cam Cameron leave LSU?
