"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

Though I ranked for 2014 ND>MSU>OSU, for me, YOUR point brings up the strongest argument for beating OSU first.
A similar way of stating the original question:
"Which VICTORY would make you feel best about losses to the two other teams?"
I have to admit that I would probably feel better about beating OSU and losing to MSU+ND, than beating ND and losing to MSU+OSU (been there, done that), or beating MSU and losing to ND+OSU (good enough to beat the locals but not anywhere else).

|2 weeks 2 days ago||I think in any OTHER year,||
I think in any OTHER year, "to hell with ND" is right on.
But the bullshit way they backed out by passing an envelope to DB JUST BEFORE kickoff of the game in SB where they had phantom whistles, jacked up PA system during our snap count, etc (the same treatment they gave Stanford 2 weeks later, but their coach publicly called them out on it) has really been a bug up my ass since 2012. If they win the LAST game (?), it's too much like the Empire defeating the Rebels.
Joker killing Batman.
The Grinch Stealing Xmas.
Bernie Madoff keeping the money.
Biff Tannen killing Marty McFly in the casino.
And NO retribution . Zero. Nada. Not ever (but never say NEVER)...
Yea, we've got the series record, but they're fricking battling us for all time win percentage, so that's kind of a wash.
Even MSU has gotten relatively more important. We need to own the STATE before we can set sights on Buckeye as #1. It's gotten to the point where much of Buckeye nation (yeah, yeah... F#%^ 'em!) considers MSU more of a rival than us. And I HATE the idea of OSU not sincerely advocating about the supremacy of the intensity of the rivalry as some kind of charity to Michigan when the RECORD on the FIELD of play should make it clear WHO OSU's biggest threat is.
But until we control MSU (again), the Big Game kinda feels like the Big Sham (a TEMPORARY state)!
So, for 2014 ONLY,

Welcome, Darrin Kirkland!!!
This kid is great! He's going to get some meat on his bones the next couple years and is going to be a speed demon.
Couple his speed with our talent in the secondary and I see good things on the horizon.
All this focus on the OL and it becomes easy to overlook the nice direction defense is headed talent wise.
Good, good, news!

Okay... The shock is over. Stepping back from off the ledge.
Thank you, more centered members of the community.
I'll be back for more therapy when the next perceived crisis arrives.
|13 weeks 6 hours ago||If a promising, enthusiastic,||
If a promising, enthusiastic, prospective hire becomes available and is privately, unofficially, receptive to the position, then I think DB replaces BH next year. Otherwise Hoke stays to see 2015-16.
But after that, all bets are off.
One possibility: if Nuss does a fantastic job over next two seasons, I could see Hoke getting demoted-by-promotion to some made-up "AD in charge of football" type-position, and Nuss named HC with Hoke involved on recruiting level semiformally, having "graduated" from HC'ing.
Stranger things have happened.
But in answer to your original question, I don't think realistically Hoke will be let go after 2014-15. Not sure if that's a good thing. I THINK it is, though.

Yes, their OL is not very good even with the addition of the guy we so desperately needed and pursued, despite his being familiar with OUR system and his personally knowing our OC.
So what does that say about OUR OL/OC both relative to OSU and just in its own right?

Jiiminy Christmas. Every day... heck, sometimes several TIMES a day, I come here to find something to make me feel better about Michigan football.
And it just seems for as long as I can remember, my enthusiasm has been on a gradual downward slope.
And this news just accelerated the rate of my heart's decline.
I know this was a useless post.
I'll just go back to perusing the headlines written in Maize, a color owned by Nike, the company which won't let Adidas use them for our gear.
At least I don't lose any points today. So there's that, I guess.

Zero chance here.

Either way, outside looking in. Which is okay, if he doesn't want to come here.

I'd prefer it to be Hoke's call, because that would mean hopefully Hoke has the sense not to interfere with how Nmeier runs the offense.
But a close second is for it to have been DB's order, because that would mean hopefully Hoke has the sense of fear not to interfere with how Nmeier runs the offense.
