The theory of relativity says that this defense is only good in relation to our own awful offense, bad to moderately good offenses we have faced, and our own past awful defenses. Mattison has done a decent job, but not one worthy of a national award.

I am tired of all the dsicrimination mouth breathers get. What if I have a cold? Am I supposed to just DIE?! If I have a cold on Saturday, am I supposed to root for OSU?

Ah-ha, makes sense. Shows how little I know about the photoshop process. Thanks for the education!

Nice, thanks for the laugh. But one question - why put white ears on Zak? Did he have hearphones or something? It would probably look better (not that it doesnt already look great) with just his normal ears.

Hoke can redeem all respectability as someone who loves this football program if
1. he beats Ohio State
2. he resigns after the bowl game
3. Harbaugh reveals in his first press conference as the new coach that Brady Hoke called him up and pleaded with him to be the next coach of the Michigan football team.
Actually, #3 will be enough.

In the spirit if re-framing:
"After such a shallow comment on the Internet, obviously you have no concept of a teenager's thought process. I question your ability to actually have a thought process. Please, have a great life posting elsewhere."
|4 days 10 hours ago||I agree with your logic about||
I agree with your logic about their selection criteria (in that not hiring a Michigan man is just as reactionary as having to hire a Michigan Man). All I am saying is that there's no incoherence between not advancing a candidate and saying that there have been candidates. You may not agree with their criteria, but that's a different issue.

Its time to change your perspective. Here's a reframing for you: "The high ranked recruits we used to get, we used to do nothing with." None of these recruits will be playing for the current coaching staff at Michigan. The past and present is not the future.

I dont understand what you consider to be an incoherence between the two. All Hackett is saying is they have not found a candidate to recommend for the job. This implies that they have looked at some people in some fashion. Perhaps the folks they looked at, including the guy from BC, do not meet their criteria for one reason or another. For example, they might be looking at folks who are not tied to the university, and they might have loooked at folks who expressed that they do not want the job; who knows what the reasons might be?

I stopped at "My name is Darker Blue." You craft a an "open letter" to Hoke, who is a real person, but hide behind some internet nom de plume. Its pompous and cowardly. I am not saying you should give your real name (you shouldn't), I am saying you shouldn't engage in some make-believe public act. Its pompous. Send him an actual letter. Dont try to boost your fake presence here with this thing. Its weak.

"Nothing new really, but when JUB speaks, it's always worth a thread."
I would rather the opposite be true - only when its very very new, and very very substantiated by actual data, is something JUB says worth a thread.

+1 for most entertaining post of the day.

Oh god, it's bowl projection season. I'm so excited to see a new thread every time a different person projects Michigan in a different bowl or in the same bowl with a different opponent, or every time the same person projects Michigan in a different bowl, or in the same bowl with a different opponent. Exciting stuff.

Regardless of the article, if you dont see 5-5 at UM as a dumpster fire, then your expectations have dropped way below UM standards. Or what they used to be. Which would mean maybe your expectations are on par. Which is depressing.

You would seriously consider Aranda? Are you Hackett or the next AD?
|1 week 4 days ago||After reading this thread, I||
After reading this thread, I am losing any faith in the Michigan fanbase being any smarter than Bobby Boucher (the character). What part of "Innocent until proven guilty" do people not understand? Because people are not guilty until proven innocent, the system places the risk in not arresting. We really need to wait until the facts come out before condeming Clark.
|2 weeks 12 hours ago||Excellent point, the gravity||
Excellent point, the gravity of which I had not appreciated. However, can his contract be extended for merely one year? Is that ever done? Doing so makes the contract extension issue less of an issue. The effect of a one-year extention on recruiting, however, can seemingly only be bad.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Looking for another guy next||
Looking for another guy next season and recruiting like hell are incoherent. Have you seen what's happened to this year's class? Hoke's stay here will be in question until he has a decent season. And until then, recruiting will be very tough for him.

I've seen this mentioned a couple of times, but dont know what happened. WHat's the story? What happened?

Here are the people who do NOT know who the next coach will be:
1. The next coach
2. The next AD
3. The interim AD
4. The President
5. The Regents
6. The fans
(really the list only needs #1).
Therefore, here are the people who MIGHT know who the next coach will be:
1. God [or other omniscient being/force]
2. Marty McFly
3. Doc Brown
4. Dr. Who

Ohio State had one season of 6 wins with an interim coach, prior to which they had 12 wins, and urban 'turned them around'? You are really reaching there as well.

|2 weeks 2 days ago||The President serves the||
The President serves the Regents. The AD serves the President. The football coach serves the AD. The President is making it clear that academic integrity is a priority for the AD. But if you think competing for championships will ever not be a priority for the football coach at the University of Michigan, you are living in fantasy land. If this requirement does not come from the AD or the President, it will most definitely will come from the Regents.The football coach has to be able to satisfy both priorities.
While academics may be an equal priority, Hoke has clearly demonstrated incompetency at competing for champtionships. The task for the new AD is to find a coach who can fill both measures of competency.

This was my feeling coming away from the article as well. I've been surprised more people didnt feel the same way (and thought perhaps it was just me).

Nice reply. Now who is calling whom a DB?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hahaha, what? You note that||
Hahaha, what? You note that plenty of coaches get results without being a DB, in response to Magnus saying he would rather have Hoke? Wow. You prefer to win. I'm not sure you are rooting for the right team.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Get a long-term major program||
Get a long-term major program retread? Come on, man. Either get a young-ish proven big-time winner who has yet to find a home, or get an upstart proven winner from a lower division. A retread, someone who is already settled in his career, would be a horrible management decision.

Oh My God! What about the kids! Someone call Social Services on these 'fathers' who put some blame on their (19-22 year old) 'kids'! Its kid abuse!

Accepting a joke bowl continues the theme that the standards at Michigan have dropped.
Rejecting a lower-tier bowl communicates that Michigan demands excellence from its coaching staff and players and will not accept anything less.

Ok. He has, however, coached one of the worse offenses I have seen at Michigan in a long time - and that is saying a lot. Yet folks think he should coach the whole team.
