|38 min 9 sec ago||tired of people saying BH doesn't know what the hell he's doing||
Marty Mornhinwheg has forgotten more about the offensive part of professional football than any of us here will ever know, but that didn't mean he wasn't an absolutely horrible head football coach.
Technical knowledge doesn't automatically equal management competence.
|43 min 39 sec ago||I can't believe that these people are professional journalists.||
With very few exceptions—such as Sam Webb, speaking locally—the vast majority of "sports journalists" are people not smart enough to make it even to the current sham level of professionalism you typically see in "non-sports journalists."

I'm curious what it is you've seen to make you think bradyhoke is any smarter than the average football coach across the entire landscape of college football at every level.
What is it about game preparation, schematic planning, staff composition, or in-game decisions that makes you think he's "a pretty smart dude?"
|5 hours 30 min ago||abs will enjoy a stress free life||
I think Brady's abs have a pretty stress-free life right now.
|15 hours 1 min ago||So I guess we're just waiting now for Nussmeier||
to rub a stuffed animal in Gardner's face on the sidelines and our season will be complete.
|15 hours 4 min ago||"How about the caliber of defenses we have played thus far"||
You were the one who brought up the caliber of defenses we've played, so pretending now you weren't trying to fashion a rebuttal is bullshit.
|18 hours 19 min ago||Anything can happen in this game.||
Kate Upton might decide she wants to spend some quality time with an old bald guy with bad knees, too. Neither is very likely.
|19 hours 16 min ago||A sure sign of fan derangement||
is the open endorsement of a coach with a two-decades-long history of shady behavior that's been written about extensively. Tressel is a hell of a coach, but I don't want him anywhere near our program. There's no reason we can't hire a great coach who's also not a proven liar and scumbag.

I don't know who the hell he is, but fire up the FlightTracker3000® anyhow!
|19 hours 30 min ago||MI has faced a huge population decline over the last 2 decades||
Not really. In fact, that's not true at all, unless your definition of "huge" is about 43,000 out of a population of 9.8 million.
|1 day 2 hours ago||MSU is going to roger Michigan all afternoon.||
with no lube, either.
"It'll be the final nail in Hoke's UM head coaching career." — you're right about that. I'd love to see Hoke succeed here, but a loss of any sort is going to bring the situation into focus, so to speak.
|1 day 7 hours ago||49-3 MSU||
Shades of 2002, only in reverse.
On a different but related topic, I'm surprised nobody's started a thread celebrating SF's beatdown at the hands of the Broncos last night as proof that JH has "lost" the locker room.
|1 day 7 hours ago||I miss the days when we were good enough||
that our own coach was bitching about referee calls that went against us in a tight game against a national power in their own stadium.
|1 day 13 hours ago||Another sign that the world is completely upside down||
The Detroit Lions are better at football than the Michigan Wolverines.
|1 day 18 hours ago||I'd rather have Nick Saban's hair dresser coaching the team||
Start up the Flight Tracker!!!
|1 day 19 hours ago||our coach doesnt know what a chip is||
That's a damn lie.
|1 day 20 hours ago||I would be happy if we were within two scores.||
I don't expect that we will be, but even if we were I still wouldn't be happy if that's all we have to cheer about. There are no moral victories.
|1 day 22 hours ago||DQ is not the best place to get a post-workout snack.||
So, I've been doing it all wrong?
|1 day 23 hours ago||what would you suggest the internet is?||
Everybody knows that the internet is a series of threads, many of which originate here at MGoBlog. We're what keeps the internet upright.
|2 days 1 hour ago||"Clogging up the board" only makes sense||
if you believe that the internet is a series of tubes.
|2 days 1 hour ago||and got torn apart.||
Anybody criticizing you for making that simple and accurate observation about our HC was an idiot, as subsequent events have borne out.
|2 days 1 hour ago||Addazio while not perfect, seems like he could...||
... be one helluva OL coach at Michigan.
I know that's not what you're suggesting, but IMHO our OL suckitude is the #1 issue with our program. If you can't teach your OL how to block, your offense is going to be consistently in the dumper, which then puts your defense in consistently bad situations. A head coach who is unable to recognize how to fix this fundamental problem is probably also not going to be able to fix problems that other units have, which appears to be what our situation is.
|2 days 1 hour ago||what plagues Michigan won't be cured by just a HC change.||
?? Is it something in the water supply? Is the food at the training table contaminated? Will antibiotics get rid of it? Is like an STD?
|2 days 1 hour ago||Addazio is interesting, but his record so far||
at Temple and BC is just a bit over .500. BC's win over USC was impressive, but their loss at home to Colorado St. was to another CC candidate Jim McElwain, who was Saban's OC during Alabama's 48-6 run from 2008 through 2011, winning two NCs along the way.
Maybe McElwain is the better former Alabama guy for us than Nussmeier is.
|2 days 1 hour ago||need to pull the proverbial sticks out of your butts.||
Very disappointed you didn't call us Debbie Downers with sand in our vaginas. You need to step up your game of clichés this morning.
|2 days 3 hours ago||the relationship between Mullen and Florida is not good at all.||
Who's pissed at who, and why?
If it's Mullen who's pissed at Florida for not hiring him, he'd only had two seasons under his belt at MSU when Meyer quit and was 14-11 and 7-9 in conference, so it wasn't like he was a slam-dunk, can't miss choice. Granted, hiring Muschamp was even more of a stretch.
|2 days 4 hours ago||opposition to anything that does not heap pessimism, doubt||
By all means, go ahead and list for us all the things that heap optimism, hope, and good feels about our program.
|2 days 4 hours ago||I've always disliked Notre Dame, at times detested them||
but they're not even in the same league of detestability as Florida State, and never have been for me. As a program ND is certainly not beyond criticism, but FSU is the poster child for everything that is horribly wrong about big-time college football.
On top of that, schadenfreude just seems rather lame to me when our own program has become a national laughingstock of clueless arrogance combined with ineptitude, disorganization, dysfunction, and very overrated talent.
|2 days 18 hours ago||The gap between us and them is breathtaking.||
The gap between us and a lot of teams is breathtaking, considering where we used to be.
Meyer has yet to lose a regular season game in the conference.
|3 days 55 min ago||1979 was Bo's worst season up to that time||
and kicking game woes were a big part of the 8-4 season. Some have their shorts in a bunch over how "mean" Hoke is to the media these days, but Bo didn't necessarily handle the pressure any better.
