I know the feeling too...
that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides
I know the feeling too...
That might be the hardest I've laughed stone sober at 2 in the morning.
If I find out DB put me through all of this to go hire Hoke I'll lose my sh*t... We coulda had F'ing Brady Hoke the day after OSU OR the day after MISS. ST. OR the day after he knew Harbaugh was headed to the NFL!!! I'd be seroiusly pissed if we waited all this time to name BRADY F'ING HOKE as our next HC!
Give this man a raise!
If it happens feel free to call me and I'll help with the kicking!
LM in 2011!
if two michigan men turned us down?
edit: I hope that doesn't happen but there are conflicting reports as usual
Not that he has any integrity
When closely parsed, this just says he told his team he hasn't spoken to Michigan and the rumors of him leaving are not true. Again, not a direct quote.
Don't you mean Cotton Bowl is the alcohol talking?
Are LSU fans happy he may be leaving?
there are only Michigan fans calling into the show
Does anyone really want Les Miles??
A proven D1 coach with an understanding of Michigan tradition and values
...we are all sad sad losers...
I will seriously barf if we hire Les Miles. You retards who obviously care more about winning than the integrity of the University of Michigan can enjoy your mentally handicapped 58 year old coach, but I'm done with football if this comes to pass.
Fielding Yost was a rascist!
I'd rather be associated with a cheater then a rascist any day of the week.
it's than you middle school dropout piece of shit
I didn't realize you were the only one who hadn't been drinking tonight.
So was Hitler. What's your point?
but if your love of college football is so easily lost because of a potential hire then I have to question your allegiance in the first place
hell either way this is exciting and any press is good press
hey captain no punctuation, my allegiance is to my alma mater not to the COOLEST HELMETS or whatever. I expect integrity from Michigan, it means a fuck of a lot more to me than whether I can brag about fucking Rose Bowls to my buddies.
Do you REALLY want integrity and .500 football? I know it's the right thing to say and all, but will that really make you proud? I'm honest enough to admit I'm willing to accept some faults for a respectable on-field performance.
Yes. Football games are not the fucking be all, end all in my life. I would like to win them, but I'm not going to let myself cheer for a cheating asswipe just so I can say LOL SPARTY LITTLE BROTHER LOL again. And if you disagree with me, shame on your shallow asses.
well, I respect your opinion, though apparently you don't respect mine. I think either way we're going to end up with an asshole that can with games sooner or later. Even if we hire a distinguished gentleman with the .500 record, he's not going to last for long.
" Football games are not the fucking be all, end all in my life."
And yet, here you are with the rest of us, on a Football themed message board on a Friday night before the bars close. Interesting is all.
football games or drinking, the only two things that can matter in your life!
let me be clear: I love football, I love Michigan football. But I will not sit there and cheer for the death of Michigan as I know and love it just so we can win more games.
Frees up a seat for someone else. I have a question for you, have you ever played football? Not that it makes a difference in the discussion, I just like to know who I'm talking to.
+1 to you, NDetroit22... whoever you may be...
Some faults? Good fucking god, man. Les Miles LIES TO and CHEATS his players. Not an acceptable fault... Liars, cheaters, thieves will not be tolerated. Funny how those 3 always run together, too
Over/under on what proportion of RR haters who were OUTRAGED by practicegate will support Miles when he pulls some serious shit that actually harms our players?
I love these guy's voices.
I've come to the conclusion that anyone supporting Miles doesn't actually read the frontpage of this blog.
I reserve the right to think for myself.
You must realize that there are actual rules in the Big Ten about recruiting that actually have to be followed, unlike the SEC. Right?!
this isn't 'nam. there are rules.
That makes it totally okay! What about the textbook scandal at Okie State? What about the violations for illegal telephone contact with recruits? What about his lack of clock management skills? What about his inability to master basic English? What about the fact that he'll be fucking 60 in 2 years?
You shallow asswipes who are too afraid of being laughed at by your fucking Sparty friends to take a real stand against this pathetic hiring are ridiculous. Enjoy your 10 win seasons and the probation and embarrassments like EATING FUCKING GRASS that go along with them.
You should've attended Northwestern. THEN you could have had athletics that no one cares about AND a great education. Your bad.
What influence do you think your temper tantrum/ stand against this pathetic hiring will have on whether he gets hired or not?
It is DB's job to set the tone and expectations of the future coach whomever that may be.
We don't have natural grass anymore.
Him being 60 only matters if he coaches till he cant remember what play was just called. IF he's hired, the ideal situation would be for DB to also hire Hoke as DC at the same salary or slightly more than he's making now and groom him for the takeover where Les can retire in 5 - 10 years.
OR Loeffler as OC to take over.
What you fail to realize is that Carr set us up for failure NOT by having bad recruiting classes or the like. But, by flat out refusing to offer up any kind of viable replacement when he stepped down. He knew he'd be leaving after Henne, Hart and Long Graduated and he left us with Mike Deboer's cadavar to replace him.
but I thought that was a little greedy. I sent that scenario in a tweet to MNBNation earlier. With 3 Michigan men back in the big house, its entirely possible we could unite the fanbase (except for brodie) in one move.
why not just hire Hoke now and spare ourselves the probation and the grass eating? That makes no fucking sense.
Cause hoke is just gonna fail cause he doesn't have (edit: enough) experience of being the head coach of a D1 program. Did I get that right? *assume the worst possible scenario about someone that way you can justify your outrage*
I'm with you on most of this. But lay off the grass-eating. It's a fine digestif. Also, keeps your immune system on it's toes. Also, back to nature or something.
And as soon as he beats OSU and wins the B1G Ten you will magically forget you ever wrote this. Come on this is crazy the guy can obviously recruit and win games. Did you see the game last night?
Are all the Jon Gruden rumors just "wishful thinking"? Or is their some actual smoke?
