|10 hours 6 min ago||The "fire everyone,"||
boycott games, attacks on players (current and former) who don't turn on Hoke, etc. don't reflect well on Michigan. The comments from friends from around the country have opened my eyes.
|12 hours 28 min ago||Good news.||
If Brandon is the meddling jackass I keep hearing about Hoke deserves to be liberated. If he can pull this season out of the current depths he can save himself. If he can't a new AD should sort out what follows.
|1 day 13 hours ago||I'll stand with Howard.||
What I've learned through all of this is that you can change coaches and you can change ADs but you can't change fans. And some of you think it's okay to personally attack a head coach, boycott games (with some ass backward justification that it's for the players and generally throw tantrums because your team is not entertaining you. When it's time to circle the wagon you take to the internet to build the attack.
Fuck all of that, especially that which dismisses comments from those who have actually walked the walk. It's plainly obvious where your interests are. Howard takes pride in his association with Michigan football, he believes in what in contributed to him in becoming a man.
The Michigan roster is filled with kids who loved the school and staff. How anyone thinks these last few weeks plays well with them is beyond me. When Rodriguez left some players openly wondered where the fan support for them was during his years. What are they thinking now?
I'll stand with Howard.
|1 day 19 hours ago||This is the||
right answer. Boycotting games, booing and yelling fire Hoke are not. Let a new AD sort the coaching situation. Show the team you care.
|1 day 20 hours ago||I have been||
called an idiot and fucking moron for defending Hoke on this. In my opinion though this falls on the trainers, medical staff and BRANDON.
Brandon has to go. Let the new AD fire/hire a new coach.
|1 day 23 hours ago||In my area||
they were cheering for the first down.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Nuss has a fucking||
headset and he said they didn't mention the hit to him.
|2 days 6 hours ago||If you knew anything||
about concussions you would know that this is not atypical.
|2 days 6 hours ago||I can't wait until||
he steps in and pits his stamp of indifference to football on the program.
|2 days 6 hours ago||Did you read the statement?||
He said Hoke was given the wrong information and that a mild concussion was diagnosed after several exams. (Which is not uncommon. The Tigers returned Avila to play only to have to fly him back to Detroit after symptoms surfaced after 2 days).
He also said it was the medical staff's fault (in so many words). Could people just get off Hoke's ass on this incident. Nuss didn't see the hit either and the guys in the booth didn't alert him to anything. This belongs to the medical staff and trainers. The coaches are only told when a guy can't return.
|2 days 8 hours ago||I read here everyone in||
the whole stadium knew.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Are you kidding?||
They are rolling on the floor laighing at Brian running for regent, the calls for boycotts of the game, the hatred of Hoke, etc.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Saban would be||
in the face of the assistant or coordinator whose responsibility it is. Or do you really think he roams the sideline taking roll call after any injury.
|2 days 11 hours ago||I am sure||
he would be impressed with the Hoke personal attacks and threats of boycotts.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Nuss? The||
guy in charge of the pathetic offense? The guy with no demonstrated recruiting chops in Ann Arbor? The guy who was most responsible for Morris? The guy who didn't have a sub ready?
|3 days 9 hours ago||A fucking moron?||
Can you get anything else up besides your self righteous anger? e
|3 days 13 hours ago||This makes you||
an idiot apparently. And I'm an idiot too because I agree with you. In my opinion Nuss is more responsible along with the rest of the offensive staff that didn't have him checked out after that hit AND for not having the next man up ready once DG had come in. They said on the radio that after that last play they had taken his helmet.
|3 days 13 hours ago||Well good for you.||
Hoke is not responsible for the medical staff or following a player around to see if he is attended to or cleared to come back in. Nuss apparently saw the play or at least enough to tell him to stay down. Why didn't he make sure that he was checked out, why didn't he have a sub ready?
|3 days 14 hours ago||This is the right||
question. The head coach has to depend on his coordinators and staff to make sure a guy is cleared. They took Morris' helmet after that play.
|3 days 15 hours ago||It is||
Brady Hoke's responsibility to follow kids around the sidelines and make sure they are cleared to come back in?
|3 days 16 hours ago||I completely agree.||
At this point I want to know if Brandon hired Nuss and I want to know what this constant reference to his meddling means. I also want to know why, if Brandon, is the evilest man in Ann Arbor, why the focus doesn't stay on him. Let the new AD sort out the coaching.
|3 days 17 hours ago||My question is||
what, if anything, is Brandon doing to the staff. Did he force Nuss on Hoke? Is he protecting sacred cows? What was Mattison referring to when he said if we knew everything Hoke had been dealing with (or something close)?
If Brandon is what is rumored then I don't want him firing Hoke. Fire Brandon and let the new AD hire a new head coach.
|3 days 17 hours ago||Come on, this is why||
these are emotional rants. Hoke has recruited well, the team isn't having off-field problems, they aren't highly penalized, etc. To say he doesn't have a clue is ridiculous.
|3 days 17 hours ago||You must not have||
kept up with the basketball fans who complained that Beilein couldn't recruit, couldn't play man-to-man defense and ran a gimmicky offense.
|3 days 18 hours ago||Come on, Jim Harbaugh blasted||
the program from afar and seems to have more of an affinity for the pro team he played for than his college team. This is where you all get the Michigan Man stuff wrong. It's about Ann Arbor as the ultimate destination not a rung on a ladder.
I'd love to have John and part of me wonders if it wasn't always the plan with Brady and Mattison hired to rebuild the roster. Yeah I know that's crazy and probably beyond Brandon's vision. And really, John doesn't have the personality to recruit? Does Saban?
|3 days 19 hours ago||I do not see the||
same stuff with the new OC, I see worse stuff. It's beyond stupid to blame Hoke for that. He needs to win to save his job and Nuss needs to win for the job he wants.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Why would Hoke||
handcuff Nuss? If I were into conspiracies I'd say Nuss is sandbagging trying to cost Hoke his job.
|3 days 20 hours ago||How could Nuss||
ever get in the discussion? For all of the bitching about Borges, Nuss makes him look like a genius.
DID BRANDON FORCE NUSS ON HOKE?
|4 days 11 hours ago||Well, you have it||
wrong. Nuss was yelling at him to stay down and he didn't.
|4 days 14 hours ago||That's BS. Did Smith||
look indifferent? Morris?
