The problem with Hoke is that he is now in a league with real coaches, most of whom are better than he is.
He is one lucky hire (Mattison) from very probably being fired; Mattison has masked his general incompetence.
The team has been fairly lucky along the way: 9/10 times they lose both of the last two games against Northwestern, for example.
We are headed for the defining game of Hoke's tenure, which seems like a likely a** whooping against OSU.
At that point, Brandon is in a VERY BAD position. Stick with Hoke, and next year is a hot seat year, no matter what you say; fire him and it's rebuilding time again.
In some years we'll likely look back at this hire as an over-reaction to the culture mismatch that was RichRod. Yes, it was great to get someone who "got" Michigan; unfortunately, they picked the wrong guy. You know, Bo figured out how to be a Michigan man all on his own, and hopefully the next guy will too.
I feel bad for the players - they work too hard to be let down like this by overpaid mediocre coaches.
Finally, for all of you morons who are trying to blame DG, go hide under a rock. I don't care who is back there, this offense is incoherent and under-coached. Joe Montana himself would be curdled up in a little ball.
