there would have to be some to wash away

|4 hours 9 min ago||Why do the||
Harbaughs and Miles hate Brandon? And you don't say Bo's boys and talk about Miles (who Bo didn't want or Jim Harbaugh who publicly slammed the program. Either of those choices aren't about Bo's boys...anybody claiming insider knowledge would absolutely know that.
|12 hours 21 min ago||GM hinted at the||
issue today...the program Hoke inherited was a mess. It wasn't all Rodriguez' fault. Carr was running on fumes his last few years and Bo's death left them without their patriarch.
Basically Hoke has had to rebuild. Peppers said as much last year when people thought he was going to bolt. "That's why they call it rebuilding," was his response to their struggles.
So Peppers comes in to be a part of that but we can't stand with them through the process?
|12 hours 35 min ago||It wasn't just the||
local press that vilified Rodriguez. He got pasted first by the national press for the way he left WVU.
|16 hours 8 min ago||The contempt||
for Hoke makes me sick. He's a good man who loves Michigan and deserves some respect regardless of what you think his fate should be. Why is it necessary to stoop to this level?
|1 day 17 hours ago||Add that it means||
that being at Michigan is the top destination in their world.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Yes they were||
Michigan Men. Learn what it means.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Ask them why?||
It has nothing to do with the W-L record of the head football coach.
|1 day 21 hours ago||And why doesn't||
he like him? The new prez isn't going to fire Brandon because he wants more excellence or sports-centric university.
|1 day 21 hours ago||That makes no sense.||
The trick is to renew the thread that connects the eras, not cut it. Hoke at worse was an overreaction to Rodriguez who was so disconnected from the traditions of the university he alienated everyone.
|2 days 44 min ago||This program is in||
10x better shape than what Hoke inherited. Of course there are politics, that's true of any large organization. And some people need to wake up, Rodriguez is not seen as a victim by anyone but himself and his apologists. His reputation in the national football power structure was not what you all seem to believe.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Michigan does||
not recruit itself.
|2 days 1 hour ago||I am so sick of||
alleged Michigan fans who have no idea what a Michigan Man even is.
|2 days 10 hours ago||Come on man.||
The offense isn't good and the QB has regressed so the answer is to promote the guy in charge whose expertise is supposed to be QB development?
|2 days 14 hours ago||The defense is||
fine but I was expecting them to be better in terms of havoc and turnovers. No, the offense isn't helping but nobody thought they would, especially early season.
|2 days 15 hours ago||The offense looks||
like what it is...young with the senior leader who is playing like a freshman. The OL is a bit better than I expected, but DG is nothing like I expected. For all the damn overreaction here, the truth is that if DG could see the field and go through his progressions they would be much, much better. And not only can't he do that he can't seem to deliver the ball in stride. He's behind or ahead of his target on even short passes.
|2 days 18 hours ago||That will be||
|2 days 18 hours ago||I keep thinking||
what a shame it is.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Would Borges||
managed this futility? I love DG but either let him regress to his running self or bench him. Everything is progressing but him.
|3 days 12 min ago||Two loss||
predictions? Is this what happens when you are paralyzed for days by a black and white dream about not being the smartest guy in the class. Is this getting ahead of the story or building the story that you hope to write? You know the one about Brandon and Hoke being dropped from a jet without parachutes and landing on the 50 yard line in front of 100,000+ grateful fans?
|3 days 15 hours ago||How about starting||
with an understanding of what a Michigan man is? It has nothing to do with where you come from and everything about believing Michigan is the very best place to be (for a coach) and reaching your potential as an athlete and man (for a player).
|4 days 16 hours ago||Exactly. Not one||
of those kids would blame Hoke for the interception, fumble and misplay on the short kick. They would blame themselves and those are the 3 reasons the score was what it was.
|5 days 17 hours ago||That's unfortunate||
and basically just disrespectful. Hoke is a good man. If he doesn't make it at Michigan it won't be for lack of heart or love for the program. The bs he's subjected to from supposedly knowledgeable fans ultimately reflects on the fan who I doubt lives up to half the standards they set for others.
|5 days 20 hours ago||Webber isn't||
going to apologize. He thought then like now that it was all about him. I love him in his post-playing career but there is no way around he was a kid molded by excessive adulation. Jalen and Howard came from much tougher circumstances and yet it's Webber, a middle class kid, who wants to play the poor, exploited athlete.
|6 days 15 hours ago||It takes a special boy||
to ignore his national profile and rape accusations and find this so funny he needed to share it from a public table top.
|1 week 1 day ago||I don't see nuthin'||
but a player on the field.
|1 week 2 days ago||They talked about||
that on the radio...GM was showing a lot of looks today.
|1 week 2 days ago||I say screwed only||
because they were inconsistent. Start it whenever but for both teams.
|1 week 2 days ago||Not true.||
Did you see Eli Manning Monday? I'm not saying DG is trying to command that complex of a system but he's clearly not operating instinctively which tells me he's too much in his head. If he'd been playing in the same system for 2+ years I'd agree with you but this is basically year one for him with a real QB focused coach. And worse he's having to unlearn half of what he did just to survive last season.
|1 week 2 days ago||I love DG but||
he seems tentative or maybe too much in his head. I don't know, maybe it's PTSD from getting the hell beat out of him last season. Then again, he gave me that feeling early last year.
I see a lot of old Michigan in this offense...if they can run the ball they will succeed.
|1 week 2 days ago||They got||
screwed on the start of the clock. Sane situation for Miami in second half they started as they lined up. Still someone on the sidelines should have noticed.
