hope uofm gets an early lead and hoke's refusal to wear anything plugged in during the game saves him from being electrocuted

start with dave brandon -
then move on to hoke
then fire the guy who plays is in charge of the game day experience in the big house
|2 years 29 weeks ago||not sure if we will ever find out about Nuss||
Our offense will be very QB centered this year
If he uses #98 like a video game player and UofM has a huge year he may well bolt for another job.
Hard to say if his success is b/c of Gardiner or b/c he knew what he was doing.
|2 years 29 weeks ago||other than saban||
literally every other college FB coach has people (lots of them) in their fanbase saying if they don't win soon they should be fired
how do you think SC feels right now about the 'ole ball coach?
|2 years 29 weeks ago||Is it about passing v running||
or simply predictability
'nuss cannot allow the offense to be 1-dimensional and staid
it needs to constantly adjust and reinvent itself - while mainting true to its core plays
not an easy thing to do
|2 years 29 weeks ago||if the qb shot the ball out of his tush||
and the team went undefeated Gorgeous Al would still be here
he was at a time a quality OC - he had a very bad year last year and he was let go
the whole philosophy thing will only be brought up in the context of a loss - and we lost a ton last year - so we brought it up a ton
if we have a solid UofM year (9-3 and up) there won't be as much belly ache about the philosophy of the offense (no matter what we do - lateral farting including)

|2 years 30 weeks ago||So what are the real assets?||
This is were we're at: trying to figure out exactly which things we took for granted for 40 years are real assets and which are replaceable.
I do think the 'manball' thing can work. I don't think UofM can become a spread program. I know there are arguments both ways, but I believe the path to success goes through a strong Defense and a competent Offense.
Real Asset - Top 10 D
Replaceable - September / October Heisman Candidates

after sitting in the sun for 3.5 to 4 hours drunk people tend to either sober up or fall asleep.
Continuing to drink means people stay drunk or get even drunker
(this is why they cap alcohol sales in major league venues)
People who are really drunk tend to do stupid things
Also - every major sporting event has fights and problems, but they love the $ so they continue to sell
UofM athletics are supposed to be non-profit, let's explore whoring ourselves out in other ways before we open up the floodgates to alcohol fueled mayhem
|2 years 30 weeks ago||NO!||
there is plenty of alcohol in / around the stadium and Ann Arbor
selling it would just be a revenue grab and lead to so many more problems

How can Funk be worse than last year? Honestly it's impossible.
So if Hoke didn't fire him last year, why would you fire him in 2015?
If O-Line is as terrible as last year's tire fire, then Hoke will be gone in 2015.

So do you believe the DC was intentionally more aggressive in his playcalling than the OC?
The OL needs work against everything and has yet to master the basic, so the DC pulled a lot out of the bag and the OC kept it vanilla?
Very curious as to what the OL and the offense look like against a real opponent.

Jay Riemersma was special and the exception not the rule. He blocked and caught waggles. Not even in the same receiving category as Funchess.
Also, Riemersma was next to John Runyan and had RBs who could block behind him
Funchess could be regarded as one of the greatest if not the greatest TE in the history of UofM by the time he leaves in 2yrs.

he is trying to motivate for OSU

some kids may feel they have no chance - he is saying UofM can beat anyone if they play hard.
Kind of saying in a backhand way this team isn't good enough to play bad and win against quality opponents. Which I believe is something we all know and agree with

Joe Paterno statement: "I am absolutely devastated by the developments in this case. I grieve for the children and their families, and I pray for their comfort and relief. I have come to work every day for the last 61 years with one clear goal in mind: To serve the best interests of this university and the young men who have been entrusted to my care. I have the same goal today. That's why I have decided to announce my retirement effective at the end of this season. At this moment the Board of Trustees should not spend a single minute discussing my status. They have far more important matters to address. I want to make this as easy for them as I possibly can. This is a tragedy. It is one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more. My goals now are to keep my commitments to my players and staff and finish the season with dignity and determination. And then I will spend the rest of my life doing everything I can to help this University.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||re: ITG's||
I am so sick of everyone saying how they would have gone to Sandusky's house and knocked down the door and beat him up themselves...how if they were McQuery they would have grabbed that kid out of the shower...
the fact is bad things happen all the time, and people witness them...they are either in shock or don't believe it or are too afraid to do anything
JoePa didn't do enough, everyone agrees on this point, JoePa agrees on this point
He isn't scum or a bad guy or vile or anything else anyone wants to call him
You know what JoePa is? He is Human, and perhaps that is the worst thing that comes out of this.
The lionized mythical figure of JoePa being above mere mortals is forever disavowed and forgotten...but perhaps it is our fault to put him up on that pedestal. Maybe in the future we will stop making people out to be more than human and just accept them for what they are...a frail old man who could not believe his buddy was a monster

I am in no way saying jerry sandusky is anything but a monster
JoePa thought he did the right thing by informing his boss (the police were involved...nothing came of it)
Should JoePa have been more pro-active?...YES
Does this mean he is a monster?...NO
|5 years 19 weeks ago||in 98 police were involved||
nothing came of it
JoePa has a history of not going off half-cocked
he is slow to judgement, it has been over the years one of his best traits, in a shakespearian twist of irony it now leads to his ultimate downfall
in 98 they could not prove anything, so JoePa thought it was weird and sketchy and pushed him out, in hindsight more was going on
|5 years 19 weeks ago||not joepa's job to put him on trial||
he forced him out

if he retired 4 years ago and this story came out this week, it would look just as bad
actually its better than JoePa stayed and Sandusky never became HC, that would have been about 1000x worse!

It was a tremendous play by a tremendous athlete.
|5 years 23 weeks ago||did he specifically say start?||
He always has said will play more, earn more time etc.
I wonder if that is coach speak

Does Hoke have a 'you can't lose your job to injury rule?'
|5 years 23 weeks ago||totally agree with you||

|5 years 23 weeks ago||make the adjustment||
we haven't seen a team re-adjust to our adjustment
we shut down the NU option game in the 2nd half, but they could not react and do something else..
I wonder do teams have enough time for 2 wrinkles against UofM or are they limited via practice time and atheletes on scholarship to only prepare 1 trick?
|5 years 23 weeks ago||yes typing quickly||
the D reduces my anxiety of the offenses output
but increases our ability to come back in games
|5 years 23 weeks ago||defense not yet at championship level...but||
they certainly reduce the margin of error for the offense vs. past years
the 3 1st half int's would have been the death knell last year
this year we can claw back to win games

some bad blood right now...but why not add SMU and BYU get the tri-fecta
Also, does anyone else get the BYU channel? They show football games on it as well as other programming...wonder who would broadcast a game btw them and texas

Just waiting on their hello post
|5 years 24 weeks ago||?||
don't get it
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Don't undestand||
why someone would pay $75 to $100 for a ticket then put something on that blocks most of their vision
|5 years 24 weeks ago||not gonna say the kids quit||
but...If I was a Gopher fan I would not mind the coach saying he has no chicken to make chicken salad
|5 years 24 weeks ago||mask is too scary||
for the 3-7 year old demographic
|5 years 24 weeks ago||that is much better||
but...I don't think Kill wants to start saying that he is the reason the team stinks on ice
He just got there...its a selfish move, but he honestly believes his cupboards are bare
even though what he said was not PC and probably not in the best interests of anyone, I think he was spot on
Minny may have good kids and I hope they all graduate and stay out of trouble and become leaders or legends, but they can't tackle

|5 years 24 weeks ago||not to be sacrilegious but...||
whats the other side of the famous quote?
Those who stay will be champions
yes, the students who tough it out, give everything they have will be a champion
but what about the kids who leave?
I know Kill did not say it very well, but he has a team of the guys who did not stay (they just haven't left yet) and he did not recruit them. Kill was just too honest
|5 years 24 weeks ago||what if...||
the score & situations were reversed
What would you want Hoke to say?
Kill may be playing to the fan base a bit here...he should protect his players, but they really did not play well on saturday
|5 years 24 weeks ago||Minny did not play well||
They did everything wrong
Kill is trying hard to turn around (what's worse than a tire fire?) a program
Part of that is coach speak...he can always say he was talking about someone else
I give him credit for trying to keep his team's spirits up during the game (he called them over before entering the tunnel at the half and had a pep talk)...the coaches on the sidelines seemed to cheer whenever Minny made a half decent play (usually on 1st or 2nd down)
Minny is a real bad situation right now for a coach, he doesn't have a lot of options
His main problem is realizing he is coaching in the big 10 and everything he says is blown up...just needs to be a bit more refined in his comments

Michigan’s defense allowed three points to Eastern Michigan and seven points to San Diego State the past two weeks. It’s the first time since 2007 that the team allowed fewer than 10 points in consecutive weeks (shut out Notre Dame 38-0 and defeated Penn State 14-9).
|5 years 25 weeks ago||via the big 10 blog||
Michigan is 79-24-2 all-time in conference openers and has won 41 of its past 43 Big Ten openers. The only losses in that span came at Wisconsin, with a 21-14 loss in 1981 and a 23-20 defeat in 2005.
Michigan is Kyle Braflowski...the south park kid who holds himself to the highest levels of morality. Minny is Randy Marsh, not a major character, but seen frequently enough...he does crazy things (like firing Glenn Mason) only to come to his senses and regret his actions (like getting naked in a hot tub with Gerald Broflovski..."Yeah, so if you watch another guy masturbate, does that make you gay?")

cbs has us in the fiesta bowl against OSU (not that one)
Comment: With Oklahoma State's win over Texas A&M, the Cowboys will get chosen to replace Oklahoma. The Fiesta also gets first choice of at-large teams, and Michigan is too attractive to pass up.
|5 years 25 weeks ago||Right||
An offense that can put up ~31 points a game with a defense that gives up less than 14 is pretty lethal

they have been so awful they may feel like they have nothing to lose...could be a dangerous out

|5 years 25 weeks ago||how about...||
basically talks about how the new coaches are doing everything he did with denard
“When he’s in the shotgun surveying the field, whether he’s running or throwing it, he’s one of the best weapons in college football,”
to restate more accurately: the offensive output would save his job not the wins/losses
|5 years 25 weeks ago||his defense of his job||
came down to his stats on offense
he hoped his stats could save his job until he could figure out the D
he was obsessed with stats
|5 years 25 weeks ago||I think this gets to the point||
RR was obsessed with his 'system'
He wanted to put up crazy stats and have the talking heads go on and on about his offense
Hoke doesn't care as much about system as he does with winning...he loves manball, but the offensive lineman said they ran pretty much zone blocking all day against SDSU ( a game they won )
there are things Hoke has to do... graduate kids and keep them out of trouble, but the only way to judge him is by wins and losses, its tough, but this is Michigan
|5 years 25 weeks ago||If you believe the Hoke-Talk||
All the team cares about is winning B1G championships...so the OOC schedule is just a way to prepare for the real season (as opposed as a way to get to 6 wins and bowl eligible)
I just don't get the feeling Hoke is a 'sabermetrics guy'
|5 years 25 weeks ago||do you need 3-4 WR in the game to run?||
would we have to take out the TE or at least reposition him? thus giving it away
