And as sick as you are of attempts at rewriting history, I'm just as sick of those who completely dismiss anything remotely sympathetic to the last regime as being revisionist. Mattison did a good not great job his first year running the D while the offense flourished in spite of Borges, not because of him. If RR had stayed and been given the same financial support Fred Flintstone has for coordinators there's a better than decent chance he'd still be coaching here.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Fair point||
but that's also assuming that RR wouldn't have replaced GERG with someone more competent.
|3 days 20 hours ago||Not trying to be a dick||
but can't we attribute some of that plus Urbs success running a spread to the fact that he had young teams? Isn't it feasible to think that if Hoke took a mature RR team to an 11-2 Sugar Bowl champ season that that would have been RR's floor? Again, just a thought, not trying to be a dick and campaign for more time for RR, just asking the question.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Well if Brandon blamed the medical staff||
I guess they must be to blame. He sure is a straight shooter, that DB.
|5 days 11 hours ago||I think you are reading too much into this||
I think it's simply a description of some traits that two absolutely terrible coaches share in common.
|1 week 2 days ago||Actually,||
contrary to popular belief they prefer John.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Please||
Stop with the probation crap. That most certainly was bullshit and everyone here knows it. Say all you want about his terrible defense, but the probation thing is a bridge too far.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Nope||
Not at all.
|3 weeks 6 hours ago||Go Blow Yourself||
I'm tired of reading crap like this. He's both a terrible coach AND his incompetence put one of his players in harm's way. Out of all the ridiculous, stupid, blindly pro- "Michigan Man" bullshit posts I've read over the past week, this is the worst. Congrats.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Nope||
It's not up for consideration. Brady Hoke is a terrible head football coach. He is one of the worst coaches in the conference if not the country. While I appreciate his love and devotion for the university that is nowhere near enough to outweigh his lack of coaching skills or I'd be preparing my resume.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||No||
You are not alone. Fire them both yesterday, then hire DB again just so you can fire him a second time.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Phew||
I was initially concerned about your proclamation that Hoke won't be fired in the other thread as I thought you knew something. You clearly do not.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||THIS||
THIS! 1,000 TIMES THIS!
|3 weeks 2 days ago||The fact that||
this could have gone in so many threads makes me hate everything too.
Except for Beilein.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Can't you have an explosive offense||
that some may call "basketball on grass" while also having a dominant defense? I don't think anyone would argue with the need for a strong defense, but I'll take a Chip Kelly style, fast paced, 40+ ppg offense along with that strong d any day of the week.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||If what you say is true||
Then you are the only person I want coaching this team less than Hoke.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Whatever tickles your pickle||
but I think you missed the point. I'm more concerned that people on here look at the point as a negative, but you go on thinking I give a shit about upvotes or downvotes.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Wow||
Who would downvote something like this? The man hit his 4 year old with a stick until he bled and Jamie gets downvoted for calling him out? I have heard some neanderthals defending this type of behavior, guess I thought our community was better than that.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I don't know...||
I think these are two very different examples. While it seems as though neither coach was a particularly good fit, only one had to be replaced by a "Michigan Man" according to a chunk of the fanbase. I can't help but wonder where the program would be if that vocal minority would have allowed a more competent AD find football's John Beilein with no connection to Bo.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||You also||
make us look like we don't know how to use a period.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Loved him too,||
But my favorite was Wheatley. In fact, he's my favorite Wolverine of all time. I'm a Giants fan too so I will always hate Dan Reeves with the hate of 1000 wars for setting his career back 5 years. They were a lot of fun to watch!
|15 weeks 1 day ago||He's right||
Cleveland brought in every washed up former all star then could just to keep him happy (Shaq, Ben Wallace) because he insinuated that if they didn't he would leave. Then he pulls that decision bs to further humiliate the organization and, worse yet, his hometown fans. Say what you want about the Celtics but Garnett and Allen were traded to Boston, LeBron and Bosh proved they couldn't hack it on their own so they joined forces in the weaker conference and hailed themselves as the greatest team ever. I'm not from Cleveland, but the only way I think he could make it up to me if I were would be to come back and win a championship.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||POPS FTW!!!!!||
|19 weeks 3 days ago||It's alright||
his parents are cool ;)
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Congrats to you too sir||
and a happy anniversary as well! Nothing quite like that phone call. I remember stressing about finalizing the court stuff and the home visits but they really do fly by. Congrats and Go Blue to you as well! As for the pics, not sure if you are on Google + but my phone automatically backs up to my account there. I began to make a folder so that the pictures would enlarge, then copied the location and used that for this post. Regardless of how you do it I'm looking forward to seeing pics of Caleb in the future.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Thanks Yak!||
We are very lucky to have him.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Great questions||
I was trying to steer him towards basketball as there is much less risk of injury and he could potentially enjoy all the crazy subs he can eat, but unfortunately all he seems interested in doing on his Little Tikes hoop is dunking, so he's either going to be the next Brent Petway or he'll need to choose another sport. He seems like he might be a lefty, so if he can hit 80 with a little movement he might have a future as a LOOGY.
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Thank you||
for the kind words!
|19 weeks 3 days ago||You sir||
have won the thread
|19 weeks 3 days ago||Thanks!||
And that's a heck of an avatar, btw
