I have to differ on that. In fact, that's where the guts of the problem appear to be, although not just on Hoke.
Someone quoted Canham elsewhere on the board: "Never turn a one-day problem into a two-day problem." Or four- and counting.

I believe that was Howard Baker's line.

they favor "guidelines" over enforceble rules. The critics say they try to keep things vague in order to minimize potential liability for the NCAA and member schools, and then just hope nothing horrible happens.
A successful lawsuit, of course, can change everything.

It's a form of metaphorical annointment of a scandal that has come of age. If you try to stop a natural human behavior lke this, it'll turn out like Prohibition.
But I don't think you should feel like you have to do it if you don't want to.

that's what we call "networking."
You can also call it "leveraging."

we need to go directly to the doctor's testimony.

One of the recent articles on the Morris "incident" appeared to reverse the timing, as per OP, so I looked it up.
According to an AnnArbor.com article, of January 5, 2010, Brandon served as Chairman and CEO of Domino's up until he was appointed AD on that date; he continues to be connected with Dominos per WIKI. A WaPo article of January 13, 2010 (Wednesday) states that the mea culpa campaign started "this week." It appears he must have been the one behind it, although the timing furnishes the OP and others an attractive narrative.

Do you mean "exactly one 'i?'"

walk to Ann Arbor.
To be fair, the last time I was in Ann Arbor, I always got picked last on every team.
|20 hours 9 min ago||Same is true||
for the un-named predecessor as well.
I've always wondered. Does "predecessor" mean "one who died before you," or am I misreading the etymology?
|20 hours 14 min ago||Too much going on right now.||
Time to forfeit.
We'll make it up to you later, somehow, Rutgers.

was visibly wobbly after a severe head shot.
If Hoke isn't up to it, SOMEONE needs to intervene and get him off the field for a timely evaluation.
If Hoke has no recollection of a conversation with anyone about a evaluation, then it means that no-one intervened on Morris' behalf in a situation that clearly warranted it.
If this is the way it is everywhere, then CFB is extremely lucky not to have been sued into oblivion by now.
|21 hours 22 min ago||I know this isn't the main point,||
but doesn't this mess seriously with one of either UConn or Boston College?
I suppose our desperation outweighs anything that may happen to them, but . . . .

stole the thunder.
|1 day 17 hours ago||There was||
the Urban-Tebow incident a few years back, and there was another during a M-ND game a couple years back. There was a noise, and then it went away; life went on.
But, as a general rule, I don't think it is possible for shit this egregious to happen on a team well-coached enough to be undefeated in the first place. There is simply no way this discussion could be taking place if the coaching was competent enough to meet the proviso for your argument.
This has now gone from being toxic to M football to being a threat to the safety of the players in the program. It is time to stop the devolutionary carnage.
|1 day 17 hours ago||Heaven forgive me for saying this.||
Maybe this will get the NCAA involved. Maybe this will insure that DB doesn't ride this one out.
|1 day 17 hours ago||You might want to move||
to Western Ohio; it is a more solid OSU environment.
|1 day 17 hours ago||"Jump down Hoke's throat"||
is a vague formulation somewhat on the safe side.
For comparison, I'm pretty sure we "jumped down Hoke's throat" last year after 27-for-27 at PSU; this is clearly a different category of complaint.
I'm sure there will be more as this developes.
|2 days 1 hour ago||I think||
that's skirting the "no politics" rule.

I guess that's worth posting twice.
Your word in God's ear.

On the other hand, I have to turn off the power at the power strip every 20 minutes to regain control of the computer (OS[u]X).

by then we will have had a complete heat death of the universe, if Hoke and Brandon are still here.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Whoops.||
Nor am I.
|2 days 3 hours ago||"I know things were awful under RR,"||
but not in this way.
RR sat Hagelin against OSU for the sake of team discipline, and avoided burning Devin Gardner's redshirt even as his job was on the line.
We still don't know what RR's role in the Gibbons fiasco was, but does anybody think that in 2009 Gibbons was such a prize that a coach would twist rules for the sake of having access to his proven skills?
