“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”

I'm with you. This is somehow more depressing than actually watching us shit the bed

Great one-handed catch by an OSU receiver. 56-10. 4:14 left in the 3rd.

If we were to play A&M next week they would destroy us. They were definitely overrated based on the win over South Carolina, but I'd take Sumlin over Hoke any day without even having to think about it.

And getting wider each day. This next hire has to be the right one.

Yeah, it's just a product of he fact that state has won, and won consistently since he took over. He's not very good, but he's had a good team around him so he wins

Obviously they're cheating. Everyone knows it takes 6 years minimum to field a competitive team

That guy had more success at fucking Vanderbilt than Hoke has had at Michigan. Name a single quality coach who doesn't wear a headset. And no, Hoke doesn't count.

Purdue is giving Minnesota a much better game on the road that we could at home. Ugh

Huh? That is truly asinine.

That's a pretty ridiculous statement. Izzo might be a crybaby, but his teams consistently win. That's something we can't say about Hoke.

Sounds like good advice, but since DB is incapable of apologizing or admitting fault, I wouldn't count on it.

Wow. Just wow

Those aren't theories. Have you ever spoken with DB or even heard him speak, he IS an arrogant prick. He does watch film with the coaches (something that other big ten coaches laughed about). In the aftermath of the Morris concussion fallout, he let Hoke in front of the media without bothering to fill him in on the investigation, what he'd learned up to that point, or even the fact that Morris had suffered a concussion. These are not 'theories', they are facts.
And I'm not dumb enough to think that DB actually told the coaches 'sign this or you're fired'. He pays them, gave many of them raises, and has been upgrading facilities, so the fact that most support him isn't a surprise.
|4 days 12 hours ago||I know. Who wouldn't want to||
I know. Who wouldn't want to work with an incompetent, micro-managing arrogant prick looking over their shoulder, watching film with them, and not even bothering to communicate with them during the biggest shit storm this program has seen for a long time.
|4 days 12 hours ago||I would have to answer that||
I would have to answer that with a definitive no. If we're talking about the true blue blood programs (Texas, OSU, Alabama,etc), there's no way in hell hoke wouldve been anywhere on their radar, and he shouldn't have been on ours
|4 days 12 hours ago||That is just not true.||
That is just not true. There was no uptick in season holders; we never had any problem with selling seats until recently (I do remember a very red crowd for one of those OSU games, but that was an issue of people selling their tickets). And Brian, and many others on this site complained about the hire. I'll definitely admit that Carr's former players and the 'we need a Michigan man' douchebags were happy, but that's about it. If you saw the Hoke hire as a step in th right direction, chances are you played football for Lloyd, are dumb, or both.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Except he wasn't up and||
Except he wasn't up and coming. He had 2 good seasons spread out over 8 or 9 years. That's nobody's definition of up and coming and certainly not enough that he should've even been considered for the Michigan job. Brandon want someone he could walk all over and Hoke fit the bill
|4 days 16 hours ago||I don't remember many people||
I don't remember many people being excited when Hoke was hired. He had a pretty bad resume with a couple decent seasons mixed in there. After the sugar bowl season, people were excited, but not when he was hired
|5 days 13 hours ago||I tend to be pretty||
I tend to be pretty pessimistic as well, but I can't really imagine a worse AD than brandon. Aside from the whole, being a corporate stooge who everybody hates (with the possible exception of big donors), his one big hire was a total whiff. Hoke's resume screamed 'not ready for prime time' and his tenure here has borne that out. Plus, if the rumors are to be believed, no decent coach will work under brandon. I'm at the point where I believe the next guy can only be a step up, so I say let the heads roll

I think you're confusing the big ten's (and big ten official's) general incompetence with a grudge against michigan. Have we been screwed by terrible calls? Yes, absolutely, but so has every other team in the conference. It's just that we remember the times we were slighted and forget the others.

And I bet this investigation kicks into high gear around mid-January, or as soon as FSU is eliminated from national championship contention, whichever is sooner.

As far as alternates go, they were well above average. I think our home jerseys are so good I don't like them being messed with. I'd be all for an all-white away uniform though
|1 week 1 day ago||I get what you're saying, but||
I get what you're saying, but doesn't the fact that we normally make meh quarterbacks look like heisman hopefuls mean that our defensive coordinator shouldn't get the benefit of the doubt just because we overmatched an offense with one of the worst OLs I've ever seen (which is saying something given what we've seen from our OL over the last several years).
