|12 hours 49 min ago||Not a Rivalry||
This is not a rivalry, nor is it The Game.
It is a nightmare that for the past decade or more, I have had to suffer through.
The people running this program and in control of the AD should be embarrassed over what they have turned this program into.
M fans are in exile here. We desperately need this insanity to end.
It is OSU game week again. And we have precisely no hope to win.
|14 hours 54 min ago||Oh My||
This is extraordinarily frightening. There is nothing extraordinary about the performance of this football program. If we end up with Hoke for another year, it could be disasterous for this program.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Be There||
I will be there and will enjoy the whole day. Game day at the Big House is awesome and will always be.
The football will be better soon.
There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing choices.
It is honor to be a part of M football. I will always look at it that way.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Unfortunately||
It is over. End of an era. Time to bring it to a close.
This is Michigan. No Paternos here. I hope Red makes this easy.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Always Excited||
One thing the last seven or so years have proven to me is that I am always excited about M game day Saturdays, and I am always excited about going to the Big House.
I will be there today, and intend to stay for the entire game - no matter what the weather or game brings.
Support M, the team, the seniors, and especially Devin.

Voted for both Men of Michigan! Excellent idea.

I had him on my team all last year as well, just on principle alone.

Brandon did everything he could to prop up Hoke. He paid for the best coordinators money could buy. Way more than has ever been spent at M.
He simply could not rise to the magnitude of the position. No excuses. No hiding under Dave Brandon's skirt anymore.
I feel bad for him, but it is over, and he will be well paid until he can get back on his feet.
|1 week 3 days ago||Used to be Hockey||
It used to be hockey, but they are so difficult to follow any more.
My daughters have always attended the W basketball camps for kids, and I have always been impressed with how classy and generous the M women basketball players were in teaching the girls at the camp.
Therefore, my vote is W basketball.
|1 week 3 days ago||Fate Sealed||
Minnesota game sealed Hoke's fate. There is no recovering from that debacle and what it represented for the program as a whole.
|1 week 5 days ago||Exactly||
Plan A can be handled behind closed doors, quickly, and without any public disclosure.
If the JH in that video posted on the board a while back still exists, he will come and that will be known by Hackett quickly after the OSU game.
If the NFL still holds his heart, Hackett should know his plan B options in detail.
This is time, more than ever, for a big boy coaching search.
|1 week 5 days ago||For Shame||
Unacceptable to refer to Bo as a choker. You should know better.
A great man and a great coach deserves much better than this.
Especially since half the coaches you aspire to in your diatribe cheated.
I stand with Bo. Championships won without honor and integrity are worthless, and you can keep them. I would not trade the Bo era for any of the others listed above, period.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||The Next Larry Bird?||
I am starting to think so!
|2 weeks 4 days ago||No Way||
This cannot stand. Please delete immediately if not sooner. Bo should never be disrespected in this way.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Odd||
Yes. It couldn't put my finger on it, but IU looked very apathetic. I think your description hits the nail on the head.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Absolutely||
I agree completely. This is what being a Man of Michigan means for a football coach, as well as all other departments of the university.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Agree||
Agree one hundred percent!
God Bless, Gordie.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||A House Divided||
We tore this thing down ourselves as a result of organizational incompetence, unfairness, and selfishness. Things I thought that I would never see from my beloved program.
Dantonio, like any good vulture, did what he was supposed to do with the carcass.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Sitting Outside the Principal's Office||
Predicted a ten win season, and thought predictions of seven wins and lower were ridiculous.
Now I sit outside of the principal's office, awaiting my 3:30PM Saturday punishment to be delivered.
I never expected to dread a Michigan football game like this for a long time. What a sad state of affairs!

I wish I was as upbeat and enthusiastic about my job as Norfleet is on the field. If I had any talent whatsoever, I would play the game like he does.
I know he will break one soon. But the points made above are true, he leaves the circus aspects of his game before and after the whistle. I remember when merely catching a punt around here was an Atomic Dog act. He has really stabilized things and done a workman like job on all returns.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Never||
I would hope it would never happen. But with the ethics of some of the coaches out there........
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Absolutely||
Makes your starter a bigger target for the defense. If a team knew that they were one hit from getting Bellomy into the game, and therefore a sure W, they would surely try to make it happen.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Really, Really Big Show||
It was awesome. Great job by the MMB. Innovative! Yet classy.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Strategy||
Last thing you want to do is broadcast to the world that your back up is out, and therefore Bellomy is one hit away from the field. Hoke and staff made the right call here. If Morris was ready, but hobbled, it is OK to let Bellomy play for a series or two while Devin is being evaluated or treated to go into the game. If Devin had to be out for the rest of the game, then go with Morris as your best chance to win at that point.

Sounds too much like an academic scandal. Even though that is the last thing in the world you would expect out of a Beilein program.

We started at the bottom, now we're back. Awesome.
|7 weeks 14 hours ago||Recovery||
It is time for us to put all of our individual agendas and grievances aside, and come together to support our team and our excellent university. Let's all be there early and ready to support our team in full force! If changes are to be made to the HC and AD, we cannot keep spewing toxic waste as a community, and then expect the most talented candidates to want to come here.
