I'm not convinced Hoke knew what or who he was referring to. Nothing about his statement clarifies if he was talking about just people who tweet at the kids, or maybe me who thinks they need to play better (although I do not fault their own effort or will), and the coaches who most definitely need to coach better. He said that he likes where this team is at... umm... I got nothing for that.
|1 week 2 days ago||That isn't really the point.||
That isn't really the point. He made a ridiculous comment that I matched in ridiculousness for the point of illustrating its ridiculousness.
Still, since you asked.
1. Mattison or Nuss would be in charge, not Hoke.
2. Brandon would have a long time to openly talk to whoever he wanted to in order to upgrade our head coach.
3, It would give me as a season ticket holder, alum, fan a reason to plunk down a couple grand for next year's tickets with the hope that we may actually get better when everything I have seen over the past three years says that if a change isn't made we will not. No I will not plunk my money down until later, but I would rather not spend the rest of the year rooting for the kids to win only to feel that sense of dread that rolling up Miami, Utah, Rutgers, Maryland, Minnesota, Indy, NW brings back a guy who I know can't beat OSU or MSU.

Why is it ok for Hoke to question my fandom? while I am not allowed to question his coaching? I am there every Saturday, paying my money, cheering on his ill prepared charges. Hoping for the best but knowing what we will get as I have seen it week in and week out for 3+ years.
Neg away, but I guarantee that over the last 3 years I have been a way better fan than he has been a coach.
|1 week 2 days ago||If you are a true Michigan||
If you are a true Michigan man you step down today, if you're not then you won't.
Also, I am still rooting for the kids. Nobody deserves to be handicapped the way they have been by their coaching staff.

Pryor is that you??... We know Terrelle, everybody rapes... so it's all good man.
OSU and ND... 2 peas in a pod.

Who is the SAM on these plays and where is he?
I suppose we are in nickle and there is another DB we can't see.
If Jake were playing SAM... would he have been off the field anyway on this play?
You are trying to stop a run play with 6, when the other team has all 6 guys accounted for... either someone makes an excellent play or the back hits the crease and takes his yards. We won't often do this on D, I would assume.

I am not currently and further more, have never actually chased a rabbit.
I do throw tennis balls at them from time to time.... don't judge, they F up my garden!

Georgia.. lots of smoke
UVA .. big recuiting area lately.
Hoping for Texas or LSU. I would make the trip to both those places.

So... they have sex with her and she does their homework?
Wow, she got herself a great deal there.

Dude, that's not a gay joke.. that's a "slot recievers are short" joke...
Not sure thats even a joke, as slot recievers are... you know... short.
And to the people who think these 2.. TWO! young men have made a big deal over themselves coming out.. Are you saying that nobody would have blinked if they showed up with their boyfriends at the ESPYs or something?? There is an announcement to get out in front of the shit storm that WILL come. If in ten years after hundreds of athletes have followed suit guys are still calling press conferences (or the like) to come out.. then you would have a point.

Do you know how many alumni of both schools are in that area?... It will be awesome!
|5 weeks 2 days ago||That group was loaded with||
That group was loaded with talent. And brought so many different styles to the table.
Still disappoints me to think of Jesse Johnson's wasted talent, but when you go by "house cat" its not going to end well.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Love this argument||
Forbes ranking of top sports brands in the UNIVERSE:
Yes... secondary. Maybe ESPN will start making equipment so we can skip that wannabe at #2 and go right to #1!!!
We're Michigan FORGODSAKES!

Somebody might want to try out TE. Would have at least as much change of seeing playing time that way than sticking with the roundball.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||2) so when he scheduled Ap||
2) so when he scheduled Ap St... he didn't know that they would still be championship subdivision or whatever they call Div 2 these days... He didn't know that we had lost to them the last time that they were in A2? That we were a national laughingstock because of it all year long? That the media was going to talk about, show highlights from and generally make fun of us all over again for the months leading up to that game.. because of what happened that first time around?
Schedule part 2.... neutral site away games. Because he decided to play these games in Texas years in advance he didn't know or can't be blamed for:
The game being held in some generic NFL stadium related to nothing, thousands of miles away from the bulk of his fan base?
The band being left out until some donors stepped up to bail him out?
The price of the tickets being triple or more than the average home game or away game at another university stadium.
The travel cost being 10X or more higher for most of us season ticket holders than another home game.
Taking a very low payout (compared to the total amount that was brought in for the game) when he agreed to the matchup.
How is it we can't blame him for the schedule again?

Was just going to say the same think.
If you don't like the policy, avoid having to deal with it at all and just don't commit. Seems simple enough.

Lets hope that what GRIII and MM see convinces them that another year in school would do them some good. Stauskas will see a very high grade, so he would have to find other reasons to stay. Not going to happen.

Run Caris, Run wins. I think its as good as most LSU freak stuff.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||Just like it took character||
Just like it took character and guts for Sam to get to this point, it will take equal character and guts for a GM to make that pick knowing the situation as you described it. But I bet there are some out there that will have what it take to stand in front of a camera and say "we drafted him because we thought he could help us on the feild and we didn't care about his private life, and we cut him because he just wasn't good enough at football"
It is going to be very interesting no matter how it plays out.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||Looking at the Bball team||
Seriously, I have been asking for a year now where Bielfeldt has a higher upside, football or Basketball. I know you just can't start playing football and be great right away, but as of now it does not look like minutes on the court will be easy to come by, and 6-7 245 is not a bad place to start for a tight end, and he has 3 years of eligibility left.

nothing to see here. double post. damn. I blame my parents over protective nature for this... :-)
|32 weeks 4 hours ago||Exactly at what point do you||
Exactly at what point do you stop putting your foot down? 10 years old? 12? 15? 17? 18? At 18 my parents told me that the day I pay for 100% of my school (yes Malik's is free) and pay rent in the summers, i can stop following their direction. I would say that Malik's Parents are still allowed to parent as it appears as though Malik is still living at home and being provided for by said parents. It is a shame that it has turned into this, but I certainly won't speak for anyone in this situation or point fingers when i have no idea what the conversations were like throughout this whole recruitment.

I second this... This should be at least done weekly. I will go nowhere else for my big ten basketball standings.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||Even after that ruling, I am||
Even after that ruling, I am pretty sure that there are several US players that are playing in the NBA that have never stepped foot on a campus. Not to mention the hundreds of Euro's that seemed to manage to get to the league without enrolling in a university. There ARE other avenues. It is not up to the leagues to pick them or create them or support them.

Sad day for sure. Best of luck to all three. And here's to hoping we grab another kid or two out of the Muck some day.

NO MICHIGAN TIES!!! Oh the humanity!!!!
I think our athletic department could use some of his influence... STAT! Or better yet, I think the search committe should start on their next task, finding us a new AD, ready..... go!

One positive outcome for Dawson here... He won't see his horrendous play on film for the next... I don't know... 4-5 weeks.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||Yup thats kind of the point.||
Yup thats kind of the point. If they were all young, this would be a "they died to young" thread. Instead it shows just how long some of us have been around.
Mary Ann and Jaclyn for sure.

Nothing to see here, beaten to the punch my a internet mile.
