|1 hour 52 min ago||It's Brandon who||
has given the prez the biggest headaches. And the prez isn't that interested in making football the face of the school. Brandon is the one with the ambition, if not the ability, to bring in a Harbaugh.
I talked to a few people close to the money pulse and they want Brandon gone, they want him gone way more than they want Hoke gone. They tell me Brandon is fighting like hell to keep his job but they still want him gone. To a person they wouldn't have a problem if Hoke finished strong and came back. Brandon, on the other hand is dead to them.
|3 hours 32 min ago||Is that surprising?||
I see the hate here for Hoke and Brandon. No, it's not racism and they are highly paid adults, but that isn't license to personally attack. We look like hell from afar, adding racism just makes it uglier.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Carr didn't break that||
out for the bowl game. He had to sit on it for the season because of injuries. That was a long time developing including spending time with the Colt's staff (if I remember right).
|1 day 7 hours ago||Will Beilein||
wear a headset this season?
|1 day 12 hours ago||This is what||
makes a memorable game. Winning when you are expected to hardly comes close.
|2 days 5 hours ago||He loves the||
Wolverines and doesn't sit on the sideline taking shots.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Headphones?||
You're talking about fucking headphones? This is embarrassing.
|6 days 14 min ago||I was thinking||
of BG too. Not only couldn't he throw he couldn't find anyone to throw to if his number 1 was covered. And then magic happened
|6 days 3 hours ago||Maybe the regents||
should turn their attention to tuition. I mean seriously...kids can't afford to go to school there and they are worrying about ticket prices? What a joke.
People may get what they wish for in terms of firings but it's less than a sure thing that the new prez will replace Brandon and Hoke with distracting high profilers.
|1 week 2 days ago||Bo was the godfather||
and RR would have had his ass handed to him had Bo been around to hear him call the whole Michigan Man thing "hyper-bowl." And Bo wouldn't have put up with the defense or infighting...hell, he called out Carr's defense towards the end.
Bo loved Michigan. He expected every coach to consider it a destination job. To the degree he could have educated RR about those traditions and values it would have helped. To think RR would have been protected absent that loyalty and passion for the University is to not know Bo.
|1 week 2 days ago||I could be||
cynical about "today's top hits" but I was won over and thought it was really well done.
|1 week 3 days ago||Hoke said he||
was knocking them through from 50+ during warmups last week. Tonight we saw what that must have looked like.
|1 week 3 days ago||The defense played||
as I'd hoped they would start the season. I really hope something has clicked and they have taken another step.
|1 week 3 days ago||If you measure||
a man by what he does when he down then Hoke is first class. Take all the cheap shots you'd like...that too is a measure of a man.
|1 week 3 days ago||Seriously?||
Rubbing dirt causes injury?
|1 week 5 days ago||Seriously? I||
never felt the University cared about me, let alone the AD. And since graduating I've only watched tuition escalate along with student loans. Don't get me wrong, I didn't required being cared for and I loved my Michigan experience. If, though, I had wanted them to care I would have wanted it to be in the form of tuition reductions.
|1 week 5 days ago||I have none of the||
venom for Hoke that most do BUT I am so disapointed in the defense. Everyone knew the offense would struggle (even if not to the degree they have) but the defense was supposed to be a strength. I sadly wonder if Mattison returned to college to slide into retirement.
|1 week 6 days ago||I consider Morgan||
to be easily the toughest loss. JB took some of the weight off Walton (replacing Burke) by using Stauskas and Caris differently. He'll likely find a way to replace Stauskas. The only way to help the young bigs will be better perimeter defense. They will Morgan.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Agreed. I am||
embarrassed by Brandon and sadly some fans. Hoke loves Michigan, recruited well and has resisted throwing anyone under the bus. He's like a brother who is struggling at his job. There is a way to handle it with respect and class when the time comes.
|2 weeks 10 hours ago||Based on what||
do you determine that he isn't respected? Losing does make people question but respect? Do they not respect the coordinators either?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||It's a bad trend||
usually powered by people whose very thin resumes and limited information makes no difference to their bluster and certainty.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Seriously? The||
changes involved the medical staff...you know the people actually responsible for spotting and responding to injuries.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||At this point||
I don't care what their record is. I just want to see them improve week to week and set themselves up for next season. DG says this is about what kind of men they are now and how they rise to the challenge. We already know what kind of fans they have.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Yes we have.||
I don't want anthing to do with Narduzzi and his punkishness. Michigan is going to have to be a lot more creative than that. There are two things about Ann Arbor.....either you bring a guy home or you bring a guy who makes his name on the biggest stage.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||They should||
do what's best for the team. In the pregame radio broadcast they said players were glad they were away from Ann Arbor. And some of you worry about what Hoke is doing to the program.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Is this really necessary?||
They can fire Hoke and Brandon but unfortunately not some of the classless fans. It's no wonder some of the players were happy not to be playing at home tonight.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Ha, ha. Money||
makes the world go around.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Mattison alluded||
to the stuff Hoke puts up with last week. I bet there is more than this. And this is a BIG deal. Brandon is a dullard, a different guy might help a head coach in terms of reinforcing goals and emotion but a dullard comes across as a suit.
Did Brandon make Hoke hire Nuss? Did he do it to have him shadow him?
|2 weeks 5 days ago||My increasing disgust||
is making me indifferent. I think the new prez is likely more angry that Brandon's failures are tarnishing the Michigan academic brand. Change may come but I doubt it will be about building a better football team.
|2 weeks 6 days 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.
