Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

I personally think he should leave. Yes he wasn't exactly a very good X's and O's coach when he was here, but maybe he's learned some things over the past handful of years.

Just because your team wins doesn't make you a good quarterback... in some cases it doesn't even make you a fine quarterback,
If you're looking for a good example, then you need not look further than the Jets. Mark Sanchez was the golden boy his first two years, being the QB for the Jets in back to back AFC championship games. People kept saying it was the running game and defense that put him in a position to succeed, but all he seemed to do was win. What difference does it make?
Now the Jets don't have a running game and subpar defense and what happens? The Jets are arguably the biggest laughing stock in the league. People are already declaring Sanchez a bust and watching him run into his own teammate's butt and fumbling on YouTube on repeat.
Basically, sometimes even stats (ie. TD:Int, QB rating, Wins vs. Losses, etc.) aren't a good indicator of whether someone is a good or bad QB. Sometimes you need the eye test and according to my eyes, Tebow just is not an NFL QB. And it looks like a lot of NFL GMs agree with that.

Definitely no conspiracy here.
Although the refs were horrible both ways. There were many times when one of their guys would get mugged down low with no call, it's just a lot easier to remember the bad things that go against you.
Regarding the love before the game, there was a ton of Michigan love everywhere. ESPN even had Jalen do an all Michigan podcast with Bill Simmons. Maybe... MAYBE, there was slightly more love towards Louisville b/c they were expected to win. They were the number one overall seed, favored by Vegas, etc. But just as Beilein said at the half, there were so many tremendous storylines going into this game, that it wouldn't be conducive to any type of conspiracy.
Unfortunately, this team's one real weakness cost them in this game, and that was defense. Can't expect to let a team score over 80 in regulation and win.
Overall, you can only still be proud of these guys and this staff with the amazing job they did this season and in the tourney. The youngest team in the tourney and we made it all the way to the championship. History sometimes does repeat itself, and hopefuly, history repeats itself once more and has everyone thinking "let's bring the boys back and make one more run at this thing" (but with a different outcome).

The only time I've really seen this team play with effort on the defensive end for a whole game was the MSU game at home, and voila, held them to 57 pts the entire game, let alone the 51 in the second half by Wisconsin yesterday.
|3 years 46 weeks ago||Tuition||
I'm pretty sure there is a rule in the Big Ten in which players that transfer from one Big Ten school can transfer to another Big Ten school but that they would have to pay for the tuition out of their own pocket.
I guess it's possible that with upcoming sanctions that that could change but I don't see why it would.
So, if he would have to pay his own way to go to Michigan or instead go to a school in another conference for free, I'm gonna side with going to another school on the assumption that most people would rather go somewhere for free than pay for it. Of course, this is assuming he wouldn't want to finish his career off at Ohio and the sanctions you mentioned come to fruition.

Im sure his measurables are inflated a little, but he definitely seems fast on tape, and he is quite tall. Not sure what his stats were like, and up until now, I've never heard of him (so I'd assume he isn't going to be highly rated, atleast not to begin with). However, with his size and speed, he has some tremendous upside. He can be a phenomenal OLB that can rush the passer and play well in coverage. I'm going to assume Michigan will offer him, especially with more teams adopting the spread, you can't have too many OLBs with the speed to cover slots, and size to cover TEs like this kid has.

I agree... let the kid have his moment in the sun by committing on live TV in front of millions. This is supposed to be one of the biggest moments in these kids' lives, but people have tried to steal his thunder, and I've got no problem in a man taking back control of his moment.
