Holy cow! Wouldn't that be a crazy turn of events? Hey, if he'd come, I'd take him.
Although the chances of this ever happening are near zero, it would rank right up there with Bo leaving Woody to coach "TSUN".

"We went through this a bit over the spring/summer, with many, many posters asserting Hoke was not on the "hot seat" or merely had to have a decent season to surivive ("the OL is young!" "2015 is the year"). "
/\ This is what I am talking about. Hoke's "seat" went from comfortably cool to unbearably hot in one Saturday - albeit the 2nd Saturday of the season! Going in to this game, I was one of many that felt 5-years was a guarantee. This game changes everything. And I'm not the only one. I've talked to and heard countless others move from Hoke supporter to getting in line at "Ann Arbor Fire and Pitchfork".
The negative recruiting will reach fever pitch - if it hasn't already. Hell, Mike and Mike have aleady made the "Harbaugh losing his lockeroom + Michigan got waxed = Harbaugh to Michigan" leap.
I think we all are getting what we feared back in 2011 - the pain of another rebuilding, but this time with a Michigan Man whom, it appears, isn't fit to do the rebuilding.

I wonder what Dave Brandon has planned to counter this?

Seriously? You think Devin can just sit out of practice for two weeks and not miss a beat on game day? I'm not an athlete but even I know that's ludicrous.

Based on the letter I received yesterday the PSD price appears to have increased to the tune of around $75 per seat (Jack Roth 400 level). Anyone else notice an increase?
|44 weeks 1 day ago||This /\^^^^||
8-4 with close/reasonable losses, while painful, is way different than 8-4 via beat downs (MSU, likely OSU), inexplicable losses (PSU and Nebraska) and back-to-back negative rushing yardage games (MSU & NE). And 8-4 isn't even a guaranteed thing with road games to Iowa and NW.

Let's go toilet paper his house! Who's with me? Need a few more guys that are fleet of foot, his house has a security gate and a long driveway. In other words, a tackle for loss in this scenario and you end up in jail!

I saw A LOT of people flowing out of the stadium at halftime. Those butts won't be in seats much longer if this doesn't get rectified. 2014 schedule is crap and AD is asking for PSD for the majority of the seats.
Speaking of PSD - I appreciated getting the email from the AD on Tuesday asking for my 2014 PSD payment. The sting had not yet worn off from the MSU game and the AD is already asking for next years money. All hail the all-mighty dollar!

In all liklihood it was the context in which he used the profanity rather than the profanity itself. In my mind, saying a profanity and calling someone a profanity are two different things. If he did the latter then I would agree with his dismissal.
Either way, he was likely to get fired at the end of the season due to his teams poor record. Too bad for him, but coaches get fired all the time. I hope he lands a DC job somewhere.

EDIT: Just noticed App State is 2-7 on the year! I guess it's not a matter of them being a very good FCS team but more so that UGA is just playing crappier than normal.

App State giving Georgia a good game, UGA up 7-6, App State just got an INT. UGA homecoming to boot.

"If I was on the sideline watching Fitz get smacked around I may be a little timid about plowing forward."
Not being a jerk, but that's difference between you and most - if not all - elite athletes. You would be timid, but they would say "put me in there, I could break that tackle/hit that hole/get a 1st down". Elite athletes are competitive.

Both teams played in the same weather/field conditions. That's grasping at straws.

... it may not be Borges, but I whole-heartedly believe that not only is it needed (and no, I don't enjoy firing people or seeing people lose their jobs) it's also warranted. If Dave Brandon was willing to break off Rich Rod after his third year, then I believe he has to sit Hoke down and ask him what changes are being made for the 2014 season to take this team to the next level.
The program will more than likely be 4-5 against its rivals in Hokes first three years. (Yes, assuming a loss on Nov 30) Add in 27 for 27 yds at PSU, inability to win big games on the road, and -49 yards at MSU and the script all but calls for a sacrifical lamb. Most agreed that Rich Rod probably could have saved his job if he had only gotten a quality Defensive Coordinator/Not pressed for 3-3-5. I don't think Hoke wants the seat to get warm in 2014 due to Offensive ineptitude. And Dave Brandon should be the one to turn up the heat on HOke and not the fans or media.
|45 weeks 1 day ago||You left off another 'key"||
You left off another 'key" B1G coach: Mark Dantonio
Dantonio's record as a coach:
3 Seasons at Cincinatti = 7-5, 4-7, 7-5
First 3 seasons at MSU = 7-6, 9-4, 6-7
Next 3 seasons at MSU = 11-2, 11-3, 7-6
I'd hardly say that Dantonio had a stellar record before getting the MSU job - that's 3 years of mediocrity in CUSA/Big East.
He too had a "break-out season" except his was in year 2 rather than Hoke's year 1. The pinnacle was not reached until Year 4 and Year 5 - with a regression last year.
I'm not satisfied with what I have seen this year, but I also realize that UofM was/is in a unique situation going from Pro-style to spread and back to Pro-style. it's going to take more than 3 years - we only need to look at the Rich Rod years to realize that.
It kind of has me wishing the 2011 season hadn't gone so well. Had we gone 7-5/8-4 that year, would we all really be complaining so much? Probably not.
|45 weeks 4 days ago||TFL is probably the best case||
TFL is probably the best case scenario in that situation with a pick-6 being the worst case - and most likely. MSU's tight coverage + bubble screen + no one in backfield to tackle defender w/ball = instant 7 pts.
Please no bubble screens UNLESS the D is giving 7-10 yard cushion! (and even so, Borges wouldn't call it and Devin won't check to it.)

Well, they do have one of if not the best D's in the country. They have 1 loss on the season and lead the Legends division (along with Nebraska). I think that qualifies them as "good".

None of the so-called "good" B1G teams are looking good early. MSU's O is back to it's early season self and Northwestern tied up with Minnesota. Hope this theme doesn't carry-over to the UM game.

Look, RR went all-in on the spread with SheriThreet when it was obvious as hell neither kid was talented enough to execute the zone read nor athletic enough to out-run the pursuit. We screamed and yelled - pleaded to use the system that fit his players. But nope, wasn't gonna happen.
This is what coaches do. You commit to a system and you try your damnedest to engrain it into the players - even when it appears as though it's not working. Smetimes that square peg rounds off and fits into the round hole. Or the peg transfers, graduates, and then you recruit a round peg.
Hoke ramming Fitz into the line time after time - touching the hot stove as you put it - is part of the process. This is what DB hired and the system this school wants to run. It's painful, but its what it is right now.
|48 weeks 1 day ago||True, but the only way to||
True, but the only way to actually learn and to be successful at run blocking is to do it, or in this case try to do it. Clearly doing this during the week isn't helping. I don't think any coach is just gonna abandon the run because it hasn't worked in the past. One day it will click and the coaches will keep trying until it does.
My son would have never learned to ride a bike if he would have stopped trying after the 100th time he fell off it. On try number 101, he nailed it and has been riding ever since! (with a boo boo here or there!)
I, just like the coaches, am waiting for the moment when it "clicks" for the oLine.
