That season was rough and I sat there, not so quietly, telling those people to shut up. The player development was obvious and more than we had seen in my lifetime.

That video was uploaded 10 months ago. I guess he did say that she just signed a NLI.

It was close late. And don't fear the full court with Walton and Spike.
|6 days 2 hours ago||1 game?||
Maybe 2. Think we're losing to Nichols St? NJIT? Coppin St? There are good teams mixed in, but I don't see a tough stretch nor a losing streak.
|6 days 6 hours ago||Fine.||
1) Couldn't play his way on to the court with JMo in the way.
2) Could've started on a better one.
3) None of those guys are at UF.
4) Mostly because Al did so well, and he's not Al.
5) Fair enough.
The comments he made when he left were not exactly positive with regard to his experience here and made it seem that outside factors were holding him back from reaching the NBA. For me it colored the prior observations (ie. lack of excitement, not interacting with teammates, etc.) as him just being a bad teammate. If he keeps it up, then maybe there was something to it.

He really didn't leave on a high note. Good for him now, but I think he'd get plenty of time if he could continue 50% FG% from 3. It's even noted in that article as a big reason for his success. Beilein4ever.

You'll always get negged for talking about negs... and your first post was kinda garbage when it wasn't backed up by facts and this wasn't MSU barely beating Navy.

Bail to be set Monday morning according to a post from the other thread.

Think you should leave the Packers off there. Their losses make everything else irrelevant.

Thank goodness we got a good deal! HOWEVA, I'd like to see the numbers you're referencing. At over $800k in 2011 (assuming the above linked article is correct) he would've had to be making ~$4 million. This link (Forbes) says Dominos paid him just under $2.1 million. Also this:
"He continues to serve as Non-executive Chairman of Domino's." and "In addition to his service on the Company's Board of Directors, he is a director of Domino's Pizza, Inc. and Herman Miller, Inc."
It seems that there is always more to the story anytime money is discussed wrt DB.
EDIT: Here is an article that came out right after his hiring citing base salary and his 2008 earnings from Dominos ($3.228 million).

Clicked the link. Clicked the 'TV provider sign in' at the top (not 'BTN plus sign in') and put in the info for Xfinity. It refreshed the page and video started.
EDIT: No longer working.

I think you're a very understanding and forgiving person. <-- that's a compliment. I just also think that Hoke is an ass for choosing that wording. Family implies that it's his family that is an issue. He was not married to the girl he allegedly sexually assualted and, thankfully, did not have a child with her. I believe that family was used so that there would be no further questions on the topic. If anyone accepts that Hoke is "Not fully aware", then he should still be considered not at all qualified to be the head football coach at Michigan.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||The athletic department...||
Okay. The head coach isn't responsible for knowing when players are injured and should be taken out? Hoke wasn't the one who started Morris, and then played him until he was broken AND woozy? Who's responsible for making sure the 3rd string quarterback has a helmet when he's now the backup? Probably someone who answers to Hoke.
Hoke is the one who came out on a Monday and gave BS answers to questions reguarding the concusion that was diagnosed on Sunday. He should've known or should've made it clear that he needed to know.
Hoke said Gibbons didn't play against OSU or go to the bowl game for 'family issues'. That was a lie and one that caused people to feel badly for Gibbons. He's done it several other times with less serious issues. He has a choice of being more vague or more direct and he chose a middle ground that made things far worse.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||How?||
Winning out isn't going to happen, so that can stop. A close loss to OSU and beating Maryland would make this team 6-6... in his 4th year. Plus his embarrassing handling of Gibbons, Shane Morris, and the clock. He's also had 2 OCs and nothing changed, except maybe gotten worse.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Where's the viable||
Where's the viable alternative? WTH is with you people?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Can be worse.||
Have you seen him play? A-hole.
Edit: I don't know that you're an a-hole. I shouldn't have typed that. BUT anyone clamoring for Shane Morris to come in and claims it couldn't be worse has not been paying attention.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Stop.||
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Noted.||
"Hagerup in fact already holds the record for season punting average; his 33 punts as a junior averaged 45 yards a pop, tied with Monte Robbins (1987) and a half-yard in front of the Space Emperor Zoltan Mesko (2009) himself. Then he's fourth on the list as well for his freshman year."
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Rutgers?||
Yep. Just a fluke because of that blown call at the end. We would've beat Minnesota, if Gardner had started. We should be 6-3 with 2 losses to top 10 teams and the other to an underrated Utah team.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||TOP?||
What about, arguably, the most important stat?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Who's joining Hoke on the list?||
I'm unsure which coaches you would be refering to. Few can be considered good at this point, but the most of the others are newish hires. Ferentz isn't going anywhere. Fitzgerald has been good for NW. I don't know anything about Maryland or Rutgers and will continue to ignore them for the foreseeable future.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||You can't be serious.||
That's just silly. You can play either effectively if you have the players. If a 3-3-5 gets your best players on the field and can stop the better offenses, then why wouldn't you play it? The current D hasn't shut down any good offense. I just don't get 4-3 > 3-3-5 argument.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||As opposed to taking forever||
As opposed to taking forever and also doing big things improperly.... TOP uberalles!
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Exactly.||
And we've seen it before. Bellomy, Morris v. Minne, AJ Williams, etc... This staff hasn't shown enough to be given the benefit of the doubt. Chengelis had Drake tagged as best RB before the season.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||ummm...||
You wouldn't rather have their defense this year? 28th in FEI. Thats solid with an RR offense. M is 51.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||He's really gone.||
Twitter account down. That was really quick.

UMHoops commit post. Darius was a big get at the time but his development from year 1 to year 2 was insane.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Supposedly?||
He said it. The video evidence was conclusive before that youtube account was taken down. It's probably out there somewhere, but I wouldn't recommend searching for videos with those key words without the 'safe search' on (huge molk jugs?). Transript here (maizenbluenation).
Seemed like a cool guy who was maximizing his talent and just loved playing the game.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Okay.||
We have looked bad in every game except App St. BUT! the Rutgers game could've (should've) gone our way and if Hoke started Gardner against Minne, I think the outcome is different. ND and Utah beatdowns combined with overall play and deception make cleaning house necessary in year 4.
