Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

|1 week 1 day ago||Saw him up here play football and||
basetball. Wasn't too impressed on the football field. Kinda slow and not too nimble on the feet. He was a force on the basketball court only because he was twice the size of many of the players. But he didn't have much hustle on the court and was always panting hard. Good luck to him, though.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||yes and...||
To get an evaluation of what they have so they have more time to figure out a strategy based on those skills. Any other year, later would be nice, but I think earlier this year had good reasons.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||would love to see SEC school||
Try it in Ohio...where most of the talent in this area is. Urbz would love it

of last college football season....I feel better now, thanks.

to see Clark or were flights still delayed.
|16 weeks 1 day ago||Could also be the result of Hayes||
|18 weeks 1 day ago||Send up the recruit stalker van...||
and I'll go hang out around his school and house. Just put Harbaugh's Fathead on the side of the van so he gets the feeling he's being watched.
|19 weeks 21 hours ago||don't forget, as JH mentioned in his presser...||
when it comes to coaches - "measure twice then cut".
He's been vetted.
|19 weeks 1 day ago||No doubt these kids worked their butts off||
for Hoke, but I think the "HarBar" will be set much higher and working your butt off will mean...Puking...what else.
|20 weeks 4 days ago||Well, of course, even when the plane has taken off...||
the ESPN headlines will read "Is Harbaugh on that plane? or did he change his mind?"
So, you won't feel relaxed until he's at the podium being introduced by Hackett or at the Bball game.

speculation without any facts or real knowledge other than what happened 4 years ago.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||did you say my name???||
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Well, Ok...||
but he better produce big time if we are giving him all these things. I don't doubt he will, but the pressure will be on Mr. Khaki Pants.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||They will NOT win out...||
did you see what tosu did to our little brother? Barrett has developed into a fine QB...he can't run like Braxton but he is a supeior thrower. We are going to get smoked in Columbus.
|27 weeks 6 days ago||The football team version...||
|29 weeks 3 days ago||When is the Mgoblog flight tracker||
APP coming out???? Can't wait to sit and do nothing all day but watch that and speculate about who our coach won't be.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Underdog is a good thing...||
But I don't think it matters this year. Nobody is topping Wisconsin. They should be great. We will be top 3, though.
|32 weeks 2 days ago||That was a lady??||
Loved the first words out of the hosts mouth...."hmmm" with a smile.
Kiss my butt you cow turd
|32 weeks 2 days ago||Bill O'Brien||
did a pretty good job of salvaging Penn State's season and recruiting given what he came into.
|32 weeks 3 days ago||I'm sticking with the guy I||
mentioned a few times...Adam Gase...OC at Denver. I know we're talking college here but I don't have any college coaches I love. He's from Ypsi, and, even though he's graduated a sparty, he's worked with the best - Saban(at LSU) and Peyton Manning. I realize most of the Denver success is due to Coach Peyton, Gase is part of it. I'd listen to him if I were a top QB recruit...someone who has coached Peyton Manning.
|32 weeks 4 days ago||Sounds like an injury, but...||
DOES IT REALLY MATTER AT THIS POINT.
Sorry to hear it and hope he recovers quickly. Panic would be warranted if we were 6-0, but the season is over and we have other running backs to fill the spot.
Get better soon, Derrick.
|32 weeks 5 days ago||sick minds think||
|33 weeks 1 day ago||I will throw a young guy in there...||
Adam Gase, the OC for the Denver Broncos. He's from Ypsi. Worked under Saban at LSU, currently works with the one of the best QBs in professional history and has a prolific offense. The two bad marks on his resume would be his stint with the Lions, although he did as good of a job with Kitna as you could, and he graduated from MSU. He's young, great offensive experience and has worked with the best in the game (Saban, Manning).
The MSU doesn't bother me, if it doesn't bother him. Find a winner no matter what....after all, Bo worked with Woody.
An interview would at least be warranted.
|33 weeks 3 days ago||I don't know anything about these guys, but||
obviously things are happening.
Here is my favored scenario:
1. Brandon fired.
2. Hoke fired.
3. Nuss retained as interim coach. This is a defacto job interview for the head coaching position and keeps some stability for the team. Hopefully Mattison stays, as well, through the end of the year.
4. New AD is scouring the country for a list of the best possible candidates to replace Hoke. In the meantime, Nuss has an opportunity to win the job. If he gets us to a bowl game and shows advancement, then we may have our new coach.
5. After the OSU game, if Nuss has performed a miracle, we have our new coach, if not a strong list of replacements is available for immediate consideration. If it's not Nuss, a big splash will be key. Spending money should not be an issue. We need that to dig out of this PR nightmare and show the recruits we are serious.
Forget the "Michigan Man" crap. Hire the best coach available. If it's either Harbaugh, awesome, if not, doesn't matter. Just get it right this time.
Always a fan of those kids.
We will get through this...no doubt...have faith. Go Blue!
|33 weeks 3 days ago||How about the old paper bag over the head||
statement. Imagine the whole student section doing that. Maybe I'm dating myself, but that was a popular way to say we suck back in the day.
Seriously, though, those kids are working hard. We need to keep behind them. Show them they have the full support of the fans. Sending your thoughts to the regents and AD office is the way to go about the coaching and AD protests. I think they are already getting the message and will take the appropriate actions soon.
|36 weeks 4 days ago||Hopefully...nobody||
but, throwing a name out there...Adam Gase...Offensive Coordinator for the Broncos. I know Manning is really the O Coordinator, but Adam's name has been trhown around for head coaching jobs. He's from Ypsilanti, but went to MSU. I don't know if that disqualifies him but he's supposed to be an up and comer. What is better than telling a recruit you coached Payton Manning.

I knew something was up when I got
502 BAD GATEWAY
Great pickup...the D.R. is in the house.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Quite possible...||
I doubt it's Ty...not sure he'd want to go through another transfer.
What a great 3 headed monster that would be, though. Keep their legs fresh by rotation and by the 4th quarter they'd be shredding the tired defenses.
|38 weeks 3 days ago||Yes, I noticed that..||
he's really buying into Hoke's system. Team player.
In all seriousness, i think we are all going to be pleasantly surprised by the O-line play. I'm glad we have a game to warm up before ND.
