“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”

Getting rid of Brandon is about a lot more than W's at least for me. Plus, why wait? He has given more than enough reason to be terminated in the past 5 years, there's no need to give him more opportunity to damage the program.
|14 hours 5 min ago||If that...||
If that DB stays I go....Honestly, there isn't one single thing or a plethora of things the jackass could do that would save his job. I don't care who he'd hire or what he'd do, he needs to go....NOW!
|14 hours 12 min ago||I can't remember....||
I can't even remember the last time we won a game we should have lost....Maybe when RR beat Wisconsin? Has Hoke ever pulled an upset? I mean, I know after the game statistics made it look like we won some games we should have lost, but have we actually gone in as an underdog since Hoke came and pulled off an upset? I can't remember one.
|14 hours 44 min ago||You just did it again...||
It's almost laughable. What the above poster did that none of you attempted is provided real statistics that showed Gardner has been as good as Henne. You then go on to say, without so much as looking at any statistics, that saying Gardner is as good as Henne is ridiculous and it doesn't pass the eyeball test. What eyeball test? The one people are talking about here (the racism one)? If you don't want to seem racist maybe you should provide some support rather than just throwing out a hypothesis that is based on nothing and can be construed as racist.
|16 hours 22 min ago||I keep having nightmares..||
I keep having this reccurring nightmare that this clown weathers this storm. Honestly, I think I'll vomit if he's still here next year. I could live with Hoke if he somehow wins out (but that would be the only way) but DB has to go.
|19 hours 42 min ago||Yes....||
It stems from the picture of a guy holding a sign calling people "morans".
|4 days 8 hours ago||Yeah...||
Well outside ND, who have we played this year with a pulse?
|5 days 15 hours ago||Honestly....||
The new guy could be Donald freaking Duck and I'd still be happier than I am right now. Just get rid of this moran already!
|5 days 16 hours ago||if he hasn't played this season...||
and isn't due back until January I think the red shirt is implied.
|5 days 16 hours ago||lol...||
as garbage as his pizza was, it's still to good of a severence package for this clown. If anything he should be refunding his salary to the university if there was any justice in the world. Oh, and nice avatart btw.
|5 days 16 hours ago||Oh come on...||
I think you need to add on another year or two now that the lack of O-Line camps have come to light. Seriuosly, that should be buying coaches another year or two for sure.../s
|5 days 16 hours ago||Please, please please...||
in the name of all that is good and holy in the world let this come to pass! Also, please let the next guy not be an attention seeking whore like DB. Being back in the shadows is a good thing for an AD
|5 days 18 hours ago||lmao....||
that was well played. I love when people mix up common sayings up like that. I wish i could plus you more!
|5 days 18 hours ago||IF....||
If this team shows improvement from this point through the end of the season I could live with Hoke coming back (I might throw-up in my mouth a little, but I'd live). Brandon should be gone regardless.
As for the rest of the staff, I think Nuss should get to decide what happens on offense and Matt decide what happens on defense and Hoke just rubber stamp everything.
I'm sorry. I know BH is a nice guy but he is a complete buffoon. He needs to have as little to do with everything (other than coaching the dline) as possible if this ship is going to get righted.
I want to see what Nuss can do with coaches he believes are good at their job. The defensive staff I'm pretty ambivalent about at this point. If they stay fine, if they go fine. I wold like to see Manning stay on though.
Anyway, that's my 2 cents.
|6 days 15 hours ago||Wow...||
this is what competent (actually excellent) coaching feels like. If only we could get someone on the football staff that would yield results such that we would expecting year to year jumps in talent the way we do in BBall. It used to be the opposite and BBall was where recruits went to regress. I guess that give us hope at any rate.
|6 days 15 hours ago||lol....||
That might hold up if every linemen in the country was underdeveloped but spoiler alert....that's not the case. That was one of the lamest excuses in a long line of lame excuses from BH.
|6 days 15 hours ago||That doesn't help much...||
why do you have to be big to play free safety?
|6 days 16 hours ago||On the practice squad....||
but as a OG not a DL.
|6 days 16 hours ago||I'm not a football genius...||
I want to state this going in so if my idea is bad people may take some mercy on me. It seems like a common opinion that BC struggles in man coverage but we have seen that he is very good in zone and is an able tackler as well. He has good speed and is a bit of a ball hawk when playing zone. With this in mind and our struggles at the safety position, couldn't we push him to safety where we are in need of someone to go along with Wilson?
Wilson has played some strong safety and if BC played FS he wouldn't be used so much in run support so he could then utilize he zone and ball hawking prowess in a centerfield role.
I mean, as I said I'm no genius so there is something that obviously makes this option impossible, but could some explain to me that would be because I don't know enough to figure it out.
|6 days 16 hours ago||I don't know...||
WHO DOES NUMBER 2 WORK FOR???
|6 days 16 hours ago||I think...||
During the fake punt Penn State should have run the play that was front paged a week or so ago where the team playing Miam (YTM) fell to the ground as if he were dead. That would have drawn less attention than the guy in motion did...truly had to smh when I was watching that fake attempt.
|6 days 16 hours ago||Awe dude...||
I love the blue pants! I think this is the first time I have disagreed with anything you've posted. The jersey's on the other hand are another story.

Deep fryer is heating up and the turkey is ready to go in. Have a good one!
|1 week 2 days ago||This is tough to watch...||
I'm looking forward to watching the Arizona/USC game later tonight. I do hope we turn it around though. Let's go Blue!
|1 week 2 days ago||No surprise||
Fred Jackson is one of many terrible coaches on this staff. You have to wonder about the last guy he coached that actually got better as his career progressed.
|1 week 3 days ago||But that's not really the point...||
it doesn't matter that what he's doing isn't effecting you, the point is it certainly seems as if he's trying. As many posters have previously stated, when RR was under fire there was no movement to involve former players to quell the storm. The AD just let things unwind because it suited what they wanted to do all along, which was fire RR.
Fast forward four years and what's the difference? Well now we have a team that has been going backwards for four years so that is certainly different. The other difference is this coach was hired by this AD. Firing Hoke would have been admitting he failed and this DB can't handle that. So what does he do, organizes former players and coaches current players on what to say and do to try and protect him, and in so doing try to buy some symapthy from the regents and president.
It doesn't really matter that you aren't effected by this, the intent is certainly there, and that's what is rubbing people the wrong way especially given that this "support" was nowhere to be found for either the players or the coaching staff the last time around.
|1 week 5 days ago||I don't think you get how protests work....||
I don't mean any offense as I enjoy you as a poster, but I don't think you understand how protests work. If you dislike something enough to launch a protest, yuo don't do it while sitting in the basement of your house. You do it out in the open for all the world to see. That's how change comes about. It isn't doing anyone a damn bit of good typing on their keyboards or jumping up and down screaming in their basements. It's only when they let the higher ups know how disgruntled they are that things might change, and to do that it has to happen in a forum like this.
|1 week 5 days ago||I think the thing that bothered me most...||
I wanted RR to have another year but understood that after the bowl game it wasn't going to happen. For me he had always been a coach I loved to watc, and the fact that we had him and let him go left a bad taste in my mouth. I thought he was badly mistreated and felt sorry for him when his time to leave ultimately came.
I felt bad when the timing of the firing left he and his staff little to no chance to find a job for the upcoming year. This is just another reason I hate DB. His process didn;t just screw UM (which I think we deserved given everything that happened) but it screwed that coaching staff out of employment.
The final staw for me was when whichever station he worked for thought it would be a good idea to get an interview with BH and have RR conduct that interview. That was a disgrace IMHE and one I won't forget. I think BH and RR both conducted themselves with class during that interview, but whoever was responsible for setting that up should have got a kick to the nads.
The culmination of all these things has made it easy for me to have a soft spot for RR following his departure from UM and honestly, I look much more forward to watching his Arizona team play nowdays than I do my favorite Wolverines. Hopefully the next hire will bring some excitment back to UM football.
|1 week 5 days ago||Absolutely...||
and more than likely they are the ones saying Hoke deserves another year to get things going. The hypocracy of that faction is beyond belief.
|1 week 5 days ago||Don't take it too hard....||
it's just that you're a bear and deductive reasoning isn't in your DNA....It'll be alright.
