And unlike Hoke, he can actually use the "our team is really young" narrative, because he actually develops and improves talent.

Just saying, the top coaches in the B1G right now are Urban, Dantonio, and Jerry Kill(!). They all manage just fine to coach their players up on the sidelines as well as being in constant communication with his coordinators about strategies and play calls. Why, exactly, can Hoke not do the same?
He says he doesn't wear a headset so he can do one half of what those three and several others in the conference do. And by the looks of the product on the field since that Sugar Bowl win, he has done a pretty poor job at that one half.
|9 weeks 1 hour ago||"I'll never quite understand||
"I'll never quite understand how we can both try to condemn Hoke for being disengaged in the game via no headset and simultaneously try to condemn Hoke for clapping on the sideline when his players come off."
For the clapping, have you ever really seen Hoke rip into any of his players after making mistakes? When the offense stalls, or turns it over, in a crucial situation, he claps as they come of the field and then watches the punt team enter, probably with not enough guys on the field.
I was infuriated in the concussion game in the first or second quarter when Morris threw an incompletion that forced a punt and he came off the field all smiles like he didn't care. Why didn't he care? Beecause no matter how much he screws up, his head coach will just clap for him and say "Well uh, gosh Shane, we'll get em next time!"
It's funny, people on here (myself included) made fun of that moment Brian Kelly blew up on the sideline and his face was a red as a tomato. But look at his teams on a consistent basis as opposed to Hoke's. He has shown consistency in winning. He won 8 his forst two years, then went to the NCG, then won 9 last year, and currently 6-0. Where as Hoke started out on fire, and that fire quickly was extinguished.
My point is, Hoke shows no passion/fire out there. And his team is extremely reflective of that.

Sure bro, whatever you say. Nevermind the fact that Hoke and Brandon say he doesn't wear one so he can coach these kids up on the sidelines. Yeah, that sure looks like the product of a coached up team on the field the last two or so years.

In 2011 they had a hravily established offense, which credit is due, they didnt scrap the system and force manbawl on them.

Then Hoke and/or Borges elected to put more pro style philosophies in the offense for Denard's senior year. And the offense and overall record diped because of it.
Now they have mostly players they recruited in place, they show they havent made proper strides in player development. They make the same mistakes.
I like the Nuss hire a lot. But there is only so much he can do when the rest of the original offensive staff, which may have been more of a problem than Borges himself, is still in place.

I think your being a bit too picky given what we have as a head coach currently.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Taking a team who the||
Taking a team who the previous three or four years before he showed up won three games a season to winning 8 games kast year, and beating BC in BC last week, isnt "taking a mediocre team and keeping them mediocre". He took a horrible team and made them a decent MWC team in a couple years.

And before Chip Kelly joined Oregon's staff the biggest school he coached at was New Hampshire. He was Oregon's OC for only two years before being promoted to head coach.

Im actually starting to worry that Brandon has possibly become legitimately crazy. Holy shit.

At Colorado State?! Wat
|11 weeks 2 days ago||McElwain has been coaching||
McElwain has been coaching FBS programs since 2000. I wouldn't exactly say that's "been around forever".
He is currently at Colorado State. He won 4 games in 2012, 8 games in 2013, and currently 3-1. He is showing marked improvement for a program that was pretty much dead.
He won a bowl game for the first time for CSU since 2008. He beat Mike Leach and Wazzu. Not much, but pretty big for Colorado State, like beating Boston College at BC last week.
McElwain at CSU:
2014: 3-1 (ongoing)
Colorado State before McElwain:
You have to go back twelve years before you find a year that was more successful than McElwain was last year at Colorado State. Unlike Hoke at Ball St. where he won no more than 5 games his first four years there.
And with SDSU, Hoke's DC there, Rocky long, is having just as much success as Hoke did in 2010 there. He's won 8, 9, 8 games in 2011-2013, winning a share of the MWC (with Boise, and Fresno) in 2012.

I have no faith that the Harbros are coming. And I doubt Sumlin would leave aTm for anything other than an NFL gig at this point.
Jim McElwain is probably the best candidate UM could land IF (big IF) Dave Brandon is still athletic director.
Be interesting if Jim would keep Nuss as their coordinator, too. Similar styles, keep the offense consistent, at least.

He was willing to do so in 2007 and 2011.
And if you are asking that question, why would Kirby Smart leave a good thing at Bama? I answered it for you already under your post, by the way.

Why does his name keep coming up? He isn't leaving Alabama unless it is for Mark Richt's job.

Dave Brandon alienated the fan base, the students, and a whole lot of the alumni. Season ticket holders are plummeting, we are losing the attendance race for the first time in years, he has whored out the name Michigan, and instead of evaluating the actual product on the field to gain better attendance, he offers two Cokes to give tickets away. Michigan Stadium football tickets have been reduced to the price of two Coca-Colas on his fucking watch. You are OK with this?

He probably wants fired to try and get the buyout, and benefits through 2016 or whatever it was. If he gets fired no doubt itd go to court with UM arguing he was fired with cause over this and his numerous other gaffes.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Makes sense. Fire Brandon||
Makes sense. Fire Brandon ASAP so you can get a head start on potential successors. That way you have a new AD in place by December so he can evaluate Hoke and get the coaching search going, and hopefully concluded, by the new year.

So has Mark Madden. But he is still probably the best insider to Pittsburgh Penguins hockey.
And I HATE Mark Madden. But his connections speak for themselves.

Puts further credence on Nuss was trying to get Morris out of the game. This job is clearly too big for Hoke. He should resign before he gets fired.

That last paragraph gives me hope. Saying he will be reviewing the situation and the department.

I would say there is plenty of cause to fire Brandon over this shit show and his previous horrible "miscommunications".

Thats all good and fair, but Nuss cant call a timeout. Nor can Mattison. Only the head coach can call a timeout.

Dave Brandon can still fuck himself. Trying to downplay a concussion.

Anyone who follows Brandon on Twitter notice immediately after he released the statement to the press that he started tweeting about field hockey and softball? No mentionings of the statement of course.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||The end of this statement||
The end of this statement read to me like Cartman in the principal's office saying. "Im soooooorrryyyy Kyyyyyllllleeeee".
|11 weeks 4 days ago||He was forced to admit Morris||
He was forced to admit Morris suffered a concussion. No doubt he tried to get the medical staff to lie, which is why this took over two fucking days to get released. And at 1 am of course. Dave Brandon doesnt know good PR if it came up and punched him in the face.

That's what happens when you commit to a coach and not the school. Best of luck.

I think/hope Brandon is too busy writting his resignation letter.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||Apparently Nuss was trying to||
Apparently Nuss was trying to tell Morris to go down to the ground so the atletic trainers would go get him. Morris waved him off, and Hoke let that happen.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||He's normally pretty active||
He's normally pretty active on the ol' Twittah Machine. Looking at his feed, he normally doesn't go more than a day without tweeting something out about some Michigan sport.
The dude hasn't even been seen by anyone since shortly before Hoke's post-game presser. You would think the athletic director would be right there with Hoke today when it is in regards to the safety of a player.
|11 weeks 4 days ago||What else are they going to||
What else are they going to do? Hire Nuss as interim and see what he can do. Meanwhile, you have a three month head start on the rest of the coaching search, unlike 2011 where Brandon dragged his feet THE ENTIRE TIME.

Bates IIRC has the Bo recommendation in his book. Said hed make a great AD, and would be a great UM AD.

This is the site that from what I saw first reported the Nuss hire. I think they have an idea whats going on. And Gregg Henson speculated that Brandon could be working on a resignation because he has not been heard from since Saturday.

Thank fucking God.

The ref said no you cant use a time out? Is this guy fucking serious?
For starters you clearly see the ref on tape ask "You want a time out?" He isnt saying "Now you can buy a timeout".
So many follow up questions can be made by this statement.
Was Shane tested at all for a concussion?
If you took Shane out because of his leg injury, why did you leave him in after his leg got hurt TWICE and only yank him a play after the hit to the head?
Why are you seemingly downplaying this major issue by stating it is "kind of" becoming an issue? Is player safety only "kind of" and issue to you?
|11 weeks 5 days ago||Honestly I think if Morris||
Honestly I think if Morris didnt have a concussion, they wouldve come out and said it almost immediately. Since the head shot is the focal point of most the outrage this weekend, I find it pretty telling that they put out statements in regards to this outrage, but fail to address, or even mention ONCE anything related to the focal point of the outrage.
