|2 weeks 6 days ago||Sadly, this week of endless distractions will mean a loss||
We're on the road, the RU crowd will be amped up, and Michigan has shown time and again (under Hoke) that when the going gets tough, it folds. Combine that with the media circus surrounding Concussiongate and the resulting distraction, and I don't foree a win against this deeply mediocre opponent.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||How about the oft-forgotten 3rd member of the Harbaugh legacy||
There's another big-name coach in the Harbaugh family we are overlooking...
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Brace yourselves, this is going to happen with many commits||
Who wouldn't look elsewhere? They committed to Hoke and a Michigan team that was supposed to be on the upswing. Hoke will be gone at the end of the season and instead of upswing, the program is cratering. They are generally not fans, they're kids who are looking at their future. Under Hoke, Michigan has been where talent goes to die in obscurity.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Great resume but he's a slimeball..||
We can't have a slimeball hire. This needs to be a home run and Graham ain't it.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||And Nick Saban is not interested in the Alabama job...||
Ok, ok, first let me say that I don't think it's realistic that any Harbaugh would leave cushy NFL gigs (or name-their-own-price new gigs on the NFL market) for college. That said, Harbaugh cannot say anything other than that he's not interested because he's the head coach of the Ravens and they are only 1/4 of the way into the season. Even if he had an oral agreement with Brandon (very unlikely), he could do nothing but deny it at this point. In other words, this means nothing, one way or the other.

|3 weeks 6 days ago||He left Stanford in good shape||
He didn't leave Stanford a dumpster fire like Urban left UF. Past performance does not guarantee future success and all that, but at least there's a positive precedent.

Football is a zero sum game. Win or die.
|6 weeks 2 hours ago||CFN still exists?||
I'd completly forgotten about that rag. I suggest you do the same.
|6 weeks 4 hours ago||Not worried at all||
I mean, haven't you heard that next season is the season it all comes together?? Just wait!!
|6 weeks 2 days ago||The problem with Hoke is what makes him a great guy||
He's a nice guy. It's rare that nice guys finish first in the world of college head coaching. Saban, Meyer, Harbaugh - not nice guys. But they win. Bo was a nice guy in that he had class, but he was also a hard ass. Hoke is neither a hard ass nor a "not nice guy." He's just a nice midwestern guy with good morals who is in over his head.
|6 weeks 2 days ago||Has anyone asked Hoke about prep for road games?||
I'd like to know if Hoke as any explanation for why his teams have consistently struggled on the road, though I'm sure he wouldn't share his thoughts even if he did. That said, I'd love for somebody to ask a question along the lines of "Given the struggles your teams have had on the road the last few seasons, are you re-evaluating your preparation for road games?" I'd hope there's been some recognition that something needs to change.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Dont' worry...||
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I want to act like a rational adult.||
I want to reserve judgment. It's just one game, right? It's early in the season, right? But no, this game is the sum of all the doubts that have crept into my brain over the last couple seasons. The inability to win on the road. Suspect playcalling. Terrible clock management. Hoke clapping, slapping backs, and not getting in the refs' faces when they made several questionable calls. This team needs a hard ass, not Wayne Fontes II. If they beat Utah, great, but it doesn't change anything. Beat MSU in EL and I'll perk up a little. Otherwise, get FlightAware.com bookmarked in time for December.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||No -1 for Hoke's atrocious road record?||
It's time for Brady to win a big one on the road! His time comes tomorrow M28 ND 24.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Same thought here, especially||
Same thought here, especially as the top one is from the 3rd quarter of a game and the bottom is the second quarter of the same game.
|23 weeks 6 days ago||Yep, they are fundraisers||
Yep, they are fundraisers before they are administrators or academics at most schools. If the Vest could raise all those funds in secret for OSU players, imagine what he'll do when he can raise money publicly!
|36 weeks 1 day ago||Franklin would be my guess..||
Columbus is a much bigger city than Columbia, so Meyer doesn't make sense. State College is a small town, Franklin has obviously been to Columbia before, and PSU and South Carolina could certainly be in the running for the same recruit.
Also, as somebody who has spent a fair amount of time in Columbia, SC, calling it the "big city" is laughable.
|40 weeks 2 days ago||Shane Morris is the future...||
The future is 2015. 2014 is the present, and Devin Gardner is the man right now.
As for the staff, the AFCA (coaches conference) is going on right now in Indy and that's a likely venue for Nuss to meet future members of his staff should he have the desire/ability to make changes.
|40 weeks 6 days ago||Friday. Nuss. Not -50 wind chill anymore. POSITIVE.||
<--- Do it.
|41 weeks 3 hours ago||2014 > 2013||
And that's all the math I comprehend.
|41 weeks 5 days ago||Screw Ohio!||
I hope they get blasted but I don't think Clemson is actually all that good. However, Ohio missing two of its best defensive players on its already porous D means that this should be entertaining at the very least.
|41 weeks 6 days ago||If he wants to be a MAN||
he should just go to Stillwater. Is he 40?
|41 weeks 6 days ago||Oh man||
This post was a real waist of my time.
