No heart, no toughness, no fire, no improvements, no sense of urgency and no offensive touchdowns in our two games against ok competition.
I like Hoke as a person but, our players deserve more than this. Even the 11-2 season was a mess, Michigans football program has been a huge mess since 2008. I just want someone who coaches a mistake free football team and holds people responsible for their mistakes.

Nebraska is a possibility, depends on what Nebraska team shows up. OSU is a mediocre team this and I'd love for the Wolverines to kick their butts in their house but PSU? I watched them play twice this year and they aren't very good either. Hackleburg has his moments but he looks like a good sophmore QB but he is far from great. Not saying he cant be, but he isn't right now.

Really hate to see someones dream end like this. Hopefully there is no permanent damage and he leads a long a productive life outside of playing football.

|4 days 17 hours ago||First off playing college||
First off playing college sports is a priviledge not a right. Spence failed 2 drug tests, he claimed the first someone spiked his drink and that failed, so I doubt using the same defence twice will work lol. Any practice time he is taking up is taking away time from someone else who didn't fail two conference tests.
The Hyde Thing could have been worse, imagine if it happend this year after the Ray Rice. It was not as bad as the Ray Rice thing but folks would be all over OSU and the campus police if that had happend now
|4 days 17 hours ago||You're right about the||
You're right about the policy but needless to say Spence failed a conference drug test not a school drug test so OSU had no choice but to suspend him.
|4 days 17 hours ago||It's situational and for some||
It's situational and for some yea he's the head coach of OSU and douche by default but, under the circumstances when the players where supended for peeing outside it was during the height of the "Urban was too soft on star players at Florida" flack the Hernandez murder arrest and the Diggs family calling him out. Highly doubtful it was by chance that was the most harsh suspension OSU has handed out since Urban was hired.
You'll notice a big difference when you look at Michigan fans when a player messes up, search for the Frank Clark suspension thread and the Touisant threads and you'll see most folks on this board would have liked harsher punishments. It worked out well for Clark who hasn't had any other incidents since, so it's safe to say we where wrong there.
Spence is gone if he practices or not, the right thing to do would be barring him from team activities. They are just waiting for the appeal but, he is using up practice snaps that could be used by someone else more deserving of the time.

You know that Spence failed a conference test so OSU had no choice but to suspend him for those games.
The 3 game suspension for a first offense is fairly minimal considering other schools have much stricter policies
Michigans first offense

There is no way Jameis Winston gets drafted with the top overall pick in any draft.

I wouldn't say that he owes us the fans nothing. If the fans stopped going to games, buying jerseys ECT. then Hoke doesn't have a job. Nobody cares about the media though
|1 week 6 hours ago||I'll agree with you, you get||
I'll agree with you, you get nothing from Hokes press conferences. Well um. I liked our intensity and toughness, I thought the kids did a great job in practice. ( Gets blown out by MSU) Well Um I liked our intensity and toughness, I thought the kids had a great practice this week. ( loses by one point to OSU).
I wonder why they even have multiple press conferences. They should record one and (insert team name here)
|1 week 20 hours ago||See here is where you are||
See here is where you are wrong.
They will all play each other and, yes a teamm will lose and drop 3 spots. The losing team will beat another of these top 10 teams later, gainging those 3 spots back. This is why it is nearly impossible to knock an SEC team out of the top 10.
Perfect case in point, South Carolina get's humiliated at home by Texas A&M and drops from 9 to 22-23, then beats Georgia and jumps up to 13th

Tradition is fun but, all tradition had to start somewhere. I never understand the hate for the special uniforms. Imagine 100 years ago if everyone got mad when football switched to jerseys instead of sweaters or the first time we touched the banner coming out for a game, if the fans had said we need to pet Fritz Crisler cat before every game.... imagine how hard it would be recruiting if we had to rub a cats corpse before every game!

I'm not defensive backs coach but I figure when you're playing press coverage it's pretty important to not let the WR get a clean release off the LOS.
I'm at a complete loss here.

No i completely get it lol. After tonight I needed a good joke and that was funny. You should add competent head coach to that list, because without that you have Hoke

I was wondering how South Carolina got ranked in the top 10 preseason. The lost their entire defenive line and most importanly Clowney, they lose their starting QB and replaced him with someone had played pretty badly the previous season. Same could be said for Clemson, which gave Georgia a huge boost. Nobody knows how good or bad Clemson would be this year but chances are they wont be better than last years team.
As far as preseason polls go, I don't mind them as long as they adjust them after week 1-2.
Did FSU look like a champion? Did OSU and Alabama look like top 10 teams?
A prime example is Florida a few years ago. They where a top 5 preseason team but never really played well the entire season. They had to lose 4 games top drop out of the top 20 and 6 game to drop out of the top 25

Most of those teams have a btter chance of going undefeated than we do.
I'm sure FSU and Oklahoma will be favored to win all of their games, as will Alabama more than likely. That leaves Oregon and Stanford each of which hasn't lost more than 2 games in last few years.
Michigan has struggled with some bad teams the past 6 years. It has struggled with some good teams also like MSU and OSU. Both of those games are on the road, where we have also struggled mightily. The chances of the above listed teams going undefeated is a lot greater than our chance of going undefeated.

If FSU, Oklahoma, Alabama, Michigan and Stanford or oregon go undefeated you dont think Michigan would be the team left out of the play off....

Player of the game will be Devin Gardner with over 400 yards of total offense, 4 total TD ( 3 passing to 1 rushing) and only one turnover.

Let us not forget Trent Richardson's brand new GMC Yukon, while he was unemployed and his Mom worked for minimum wage. I'm surprised this wasn't brought up during the minimum wage debates last year. If you cant live off minimum wage then you're doing it wrong, because Trent Richardson Mom bought her son brand new 40-50k Suv sitting on 5-6k in rims let alone the low profile tires.

We beat a team who is in their first year of playing a FBS schedule. Are we mad we didn't jump up 10 spots in the polls because of this? Patience Daniel-san, the rankings will come if we keep winning

I'm just going to enjoy the win and the fact we looked like a real college football team most of the game.

If someone had voted Auburn number 1-2 last year preseason they would be saying the same thing about him..... That's why we play the games

My question would be, at this point in camp are you disappointed that you dont have a starting 5 named for the Offensive line, especially with all the concerns about the offensive line this off season.

The fact they pulled Gholson out in close games the entire year speaks volumes.
I'll also throw in the Stanford game that year and the Pitt game

He has us losing to Notre Dame and Northwestern in his "updated" B1G preview? Personally I dont see it
|5 weeks 20 hours ago||How many games in that first||
How many games in that first year did Gholson have to be pulled out of. If not for Tommy Reece, Notre Dame loses at least 2 games and possibly a third against Michigan. I'm just saying it's not like he was a great QB. He was just the QB at Notre Dame and that gets you a certain ammount of hype
|6 weeks 20 hours ago||There are a lot of ifs when||
There are a lot of ifs when dealing with the offensive line.If Braden is struggling at right tackle, why not kick Cole to the right side if he is truly challenging at the left side. If Miller is doing a great job at center, why not kick GLasgow over to the right ride. If Miller is serviceable at Center and you want your "best guys on the field" ( going from practice hype only here) Mags at LT , Cole LG, Miller center, Kalis RG and Glasgow at RT

This race was on a dirt track, even professional drivers lose control on dirt tracks. regardless of stewarts intentions to hit him or not, the kid was extremely stupid to put himself in that situation.
