They're just not looking like they have any fire and at a certain point, not developing is on them as well as the coaches. I hate to say it, but the players haven't exactly covered themselves in glory this year.

Legends jerseys have to go away as part of a psychic housecleaning if nothing else.

Nope, inspired upsets don't erase four years of terrible player development,

Frustration with the way the team has seemed to approach everything(with perhaps the exception of the OSU game last year) with absolutely no passion is actually pretty understandable. The team is passive, they may work hard in practice and bust ass lifting weights and watching film and doing what they have to do, but there are a lot of games where the team seems pretty damn passive and I don't think that can be laid 100% at the coaches feet.
Yes, I see the Norfleet exception and DG's aneurysm of leadership was cool(By the way, I really like Devin and wish he had a better career here as from everything I understand he's basically what's right about college football), but on the whole the team just seems flat(UCLA pre-Mora felt the same way, too, sometimes a bad team culture just sets in and takes a lot of effort to root out).

Then boy are you in for a shock if you went to Wisconsin now. It's quite popular there.
My preferred response response whenever that gets shouted at me is, "Then how come you couldn't get in?" If nothing else, they usually laugh at that.

Given that I'm having trouble deciding if I even want to watch this particular snuff film on TV, I can't even imagine trying to see it live.
I'd go to the cabin if I were you.

I can't believe it's that close. Must be counting on Michigan fans who haven't accepted this years reality.

Realistically the same thing goes for any QB but Devin.

Frankly that was my favorite part of the game. Norfleet was awesome tonight and I hope he never loses that.

Let's go ahead and not freak out about ones choice easily translated metaphors that were not meant to be hyperbolic, shall we!

Sad to see this happening, but exceedingly easy to understand. Best of luck to all of them as they assess their options.

Thanks Seth, glad to get word from "sort of" the horses mouth on this and a call to be reasonable.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I can see that. If all there||
I can see that. If all there is is the stick and the pressure doesn't let up it's pretty easy to check out no matter what it is you're doing.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Except this year, Michigan||
Except this year, Michigan stadium has effectively turned into a road environment because people are so mad. I think that's the worst part of all of this, and the fact that Brandon and Hoke caused this together and probably won;t be held accountable for it in any meaningful way is kinda heartbreaking.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I think I've seen too many||
I think I've seen too many problems and too little progress to be supportive of Hoke as head coach anymore.
At this point there's really nothing he can do.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Yes, secondary was destroyed||
Yes, secondary was destroyed and now we get to deal with the defense sucking.

Best of luck to him and I hope he goes the place he likes best.

I don't even.....how? Look, the team as a whole has clearly quit and is underperforming. Players aren't really improving that much, especially when contrasted against other teams. The team culture frankly sucks and I'm hesitant to call Mattisons a great DC anymore. None of that argues for another year of this horrible, horrible bullshit. I stopped watching this team in the Minnesota game and won't for the rest of the year and I never thought I'd get to this point. Hoke HAS to go, if he gets one more year the program really will break forever(if it hasn't already which I'm scared it has).
|3 weeks 3 hours ago||Never happening, Brandon's||
Never happening, Brandon's too stubborn and with the fan base becoming rapidly more apathetic than angry he'll be able to wait until the end of the season.

Nope, I've checked out this year. They'll go back to stinging next year.

And Air Force scores a touchdown on 4th and 2 from the 13 to ice the game! Great call to go for it. So very happy about this.

Yes, but he could shut so many people up(on a minor issue)if he just did it. The fact that this originated with Sparties going, "He doesn't wear a headset, hur hur." and it got adopted by M fans pisses me off but at this point he should just do it to try to quiet even a hundredth of the noise.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||You've gotta be shitting me,||
You've gotta be shitting me, right? That's the only way that tying player development and this staff together makes the slightest bit of sense(yes, defense, yadda yadda noise noise). We're talking the whole team
|3 weeks 2 days ago||He's a good coach, but for a||
He's a good coach, but for a myriad number of reasons it didn't work out here and likely wasn't going to even given time, defense was bad, there was no depth, recruiting was a disaster, and he didn't win one "do-or-die" game. Arizona and WVU are perfect fits for him and I wish him well as I think he's a good guy who got caught in a bad situation. But thinking he got fired toos oon and success was juussssttt around the corner is a fallacy.

Would never leave Clemson. Think he's more of a pipe dream type.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I'm not so sure about that.||
I'm not so sure about that. I think he turned down UW and Texas last year because he has a chance to do something really special this year at UCLA in Brett Hundley's last year. Once that's over........ UCLA will still be a school with indifferent institutional support and lukewarm fans. I could see him being approachable.
