He couldn't get rid of RR soon enough, but it sounds like he is already making excuses for Hoke. I don't agree that Hoke has to win this year.
That being said, Hoke will win this year. I think he will manage to win about as many as RR would have anyway, but Brandon will be crowing about how he is "a Michigan Man," he "gets it," and how "things are headed in the right direction.
I just wish the season would get here so the program can be about the players on the field and not about David Brandon.
