Recruiting doesn't mean a whole lot here in the big picture. We've been killing it the last 3-4 classes. Coaching overrides recruiting rankings. Get a great coach, recruiting will take care of itself. Player developement is so much more important, than how good they look in H.S.

The only people who can fire him, are having an urgent meeting. The writing is on the wall.

My opinion means nothing, but I dont see any possible scenario where Brandon has a job after the meeting.

Brandon stated that he had been in contact with everyone involved. Hoke stated in the presser that he has not talked to Brandon since the game.

It's becoming offensive, they think this fan base is this dumb.

While that very well may be true, but he wouldn't acknowledge it today, even if he were desperately waiting to jump ship. He currently has a job, and that's to coach the Baltimore Ravens. Don't expect anything to really happen for a few months atleast.

Nope, what you're saying is impossible. It's the TV guys fault, not Hokes.

It seems to be overlooked, but the fact that when DG's helmet came off, their first player to send in was Bellomy. That fact alone tells you they knew Shane was hurt. To go infront of a microphone and lie to everyone about your mistake just adds to it. I dont even know what to think about this staff.

It's bad enough when your teammates don't have your back and fight to protect you. It's next level bad when your coach won't either.

He's a Hoke apologist. These people will never hold him accountable for anything. The entire nation is talking about how horribly Hoke handled last night, and people here are defending Hoke and blaming Morris. Unreal.

The fact that you believe Hoke deserves another year, dismisses any point you were making in your post. I can't believe people can be this naive.

After watching this team play so far...your worst case scenario is 3-4 BIG wins? That's optimistic.

No, but with Morris starting, you might want to park a little farther away. I would hate to have Morris put a ball through your windshield.

It's strange when 15-25 pass plays are play action. If we had a devastating run game, sure, but that's not the case. I don't think our PA is really drawing in any defenders.

Absolutely agree. For me though, DG has had plenty of starts to fix his issues and progress as a QB. He has yet to really show improvement. Shane, like you said has his own issues. Let's see if he can learn and grow as a player. If he can inprove his accuracy, I think he will be the better option. He has a quick release, extremely strong arm, and most importantly, he doesn't hesitate. Gardner seems like he has such a mental block when it comes to decision making. When he finds a guy open, waits too long. No matter who's under center, I will cheer just as hard.

I think Morris should get the same leash as Gardner. If the coaches commit to Morris, this should be his game.

Harbaugh can't go to another NFL team until after next year, unless they fire him. This year it seems like he returns to college, or stays in SF another year. If DB gets fired, my optimism will go through the roof. If DB stays, there's not a chance.

If you changed your mind everytime a student got emotional, you'd be a millionaire? Makes sense.

The offensive line did more than a serviceable job against Utah. To label them as the problem is plain wrong. They weren't stellar, but they protected DG quite well, excluding a few plays. RBs had lanes to run through.

Why wait and "evaluate" at season's end, if the decision is obvious now? No sense in prolonging it. The players don't believe in Hoke, and certainly aren't willing to go to war for him. Keeping him around is a waste.

Harbaugh wants the keys to the ship. Jerry would never give him the control he desires, not sure Brandon would either. I don't think he will come to AA, but I think him to Dallas is even more of a stretch.

That video is the perfect analogy of what ND did to us Saturday night. In all seriousness, fuck Ray Rice. What an absolute coward.

I disagree with you, I saw it against both Akron and Uconn. It's quite clear these players don't believe in Hoke. They were laughing and joking around on the sideline last night. They don't care. Hoke is incompetent. This program is LOADED with talent, our coaching is the bottleneck.
