Blog posts usually don't lead to that...
Im going to down vote you or give you negative points or whatever because im 16 years old and I guess that shits important and then im going to say constructive criticism is not allowed on here, and if you dont believe me then look at the very important comments people leave about my post.
You can't down vote anyone.
Funk has coached NFL talent. Offensive linemen don't become first round picks overnight. Yes, youth is an issue. Inexperience is an issue. But Molk, Lewan, and Schofield aren't good just because they stepped onto the field. They got coached. Let's see what happens this year.
As for Borges, if any head coach is willing to bash their offensive coordinator mid season, that shows a lack of respect, commitment, and is very divisive. I wouldn't think that head coach should even be a head coach if he is willing to throw his OC under the bus like that mid-season. That's not fair to the players, the coaches, the athletic department, the students, and the fans. Borges got his chance and Hoke decided he wasn't the best fit for the program after Borges put together a body of work that proved it.
If I was the head coach at Michigan, I'll tell you what I'd do. Two chicks at the same time, man.
I would order a pizza, call up John to bring the subs and allow shit to get crazy.
terrible thread title, you can do better than that
I'm a knucklehead.
Hoke is everyone's best friend. He is very good friends with his entire staff, and moreso with Funk. Sometimes I think his loyalty is a hinderance.
We've heard this undocumented trope before. Then he went and fired his BFF xoxo.
Personally I don't think Hoke wanted Borges gone. A few weeks before firing him he said every staff member would be back. That is until Big Dave had his say. Research before you claim stuff is undocumented.
Link to "every staff member will be back" statement?
On December 2 Hoke said, "I anticipate the staff (returning)..."
The word "anticipate" is frequently used in these situations specifically to give the speaker wiggle room. Hoke would have been crazy to tell the media before the bowl game that he was going to make changes to the staff.
If you don't want to see any nuance in what Hoke said, that's your business.
I think this username is dead. Better start a new one and try again.

Wait, wearing pajamas to work is weird?

Not enough downvotes, and 4 too many upvotes
people are defending Funk
Hoke thinks he's good enough, and that's whose opinion matters to me.
Borges was responsible for OL and not Funk
A program cannot be built quickly without stability. I believe Hoke is trying to keep most of the coaching staff, because he doesn't want so many different coaches. Cam Gordon made it public that it was hard because he has had 7 different position coaches. Also, I don't know many teams in the top 25 that had extremely young offensive lines with no leader. Lewan was a great player, but we can tell from this rape incident he is in no way a team leader.
Recall how Nebraska's defense said they could tell the plays Michigan was going to run...
Recall how many times we tried to jam it up into a loaded box...
Recall how the bubble screen as a solution to defensive aggressiveness was laughed off...
It was pretty obvious we didn't have the OL in '13 to actually run teams over. So when we did run (and I think there were some cues...I can't tell what specifically, but I bet Mattison could figure it out) it was a numerical mismatch.
Bubble screens as a solution were laughed off. I saw some lightning slants but those were rarely caught...the timing has to be too perfect imho. Chesson never really got any deep balls thrown at him.
I think this fits with the "no identity" as there was really none to speak of. It was serviceable, but it lacked balance, or otherwise said, the play variety to keep the defense off-balance and guessing. Ohio seemed to be sort of a turning point, but that was a little too late.
Trying to ignite the torches and ferret out Funk doesn't seem to be the right idea....yet. Lets see what Nuss can do, I bet its going to be greater than the season prior.
And if Hoke thinks a change would help, then my guess is he will do it.
