He got hit so hard in the leg that they have been evaluating him for concussion-like symptoms.

DB reminds me of Jerry Jones, who is also an asshole capable of doing great damage to the team that he supposedly loves.
|1 day 1 hour ago||Not selling himself may have||
Not selling himself may have been out of necessity rather than an affirmative choice. Apparently there is not much to sell when it comes to Hoke.
|1 day 1 hour ago||You had the full playclock to||
You had the full playclock to figure it out, and worst case you take a timeout or even a delay of game penalty. What you do not do is put Morris back out there. There are a whole universe of options, and the only one that was absolutely wrong was the one that Hoke picked.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Oh, look, Hoke has finally||
Oh, look, Hoke has finally destroyed the one tiny bit of competence that he has demonstrated during his tenure.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Also, if you can get Hoke and||
Also, if you can get Hoke and DB fired, then you can show up in record numbers to support the kids the following week. Also, make sure to point out on social media, etc. that DB and Hoke are the problem, not the players.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Of course Hoke is such||
Of course Hoke is such damaged goods right now that every day that he remains on the job is another day that Michigan sends the message that it doesn't care about the safety of its players. Losing games and wasting the talent of a bunch of good kids is bad enough, but continuing to damage the reputation of team and the school is even worse. If the university will not take the appropriate action, then what else can we do?
The University could have actually made some lemonade out of the Hoke lemons if it had been decisive with the firing. If you wait too long, even firing him will look like a response to the bad PR rather than a response to his actions that endangered a player.
BTW, negative recruiting a team for not playing well is easy enough, but when you can tell parents that their kids will not be safe at Michigan, it will be easy pickings for MSU and OSU.
|1 day 2 hours ago||I get not wanting the kids to||
I get not wanting the kids to think that we have given up on them, but the administration seems to be making it abundantly clear that they will not take any action unless forced to do so. How do you force a change without hitting the university where it matters - either in the wallet (don't buy tickets to games) or the ego (make it such a negative PR issue that they must take action to avoid damaging the university)? Change is hard and it can be painful, but a change is badly needed.
Anyway, if you really care about the kids, then don't subject them to a coach that not only is terrible at coaching and terrible at developing his kids into good college players and pro prospects, but is also too incompetent to protect them from serious harm on the field.
|1 day 18 hours ago||With any luck, legal counsel||
With any luck, legal counsel also told the university that they could consider firing Hoke a subsequent remedial measure that would not be admissible to prove negligence or culpable conduct.
|3 days 30 min ago||Every fucking play of theirs||
Every fucking play of theirs looks perfect, and we can't do a fucking thing. I don't give a shit how nice of a guy Hoke is, fucking fire him TODAY.

Neither Hoke nor Brandon should be Michigan employees come Monday.
|1 week 1 day ago||It was definitely on in||
It was definitely on in Boise, although I wish it hadn't been. I was not sure if that was because of our proximity to Utah or because a bunch of people enjoy seeing Michigan be bad at football.

What makes you think Alabama would want Hoke?

I am being terrible in solidarity with the product being put on the field.
|1 week 2 days ago||Largely acceptance of the||
Largely acceptance of the facts that we are so terrible and will not get better under Hoke, and then anger that the people at the top (DB) do not seem willing or interested in taking the steps needed to fix the problem.
