|10 hours 33 sec ago||I has sad...||
Yes, I has sad. Utah used most or all of their return possibilities to shred our kick teams. They had 118 return yards including the TD.
|10 hours 25 min ago||OP: Now you do realize||
You do realize just how bad things are with this team, correct? I'm at point where I don't think it would make much difference whether Hoke left or not right now. With that said, then that means we couldn't do any worse without him. Ergo, perhaps a replacement right now from the present staff could do better.
Therefore, Brady Hoke should exit now, and not later.
Disclosure: I came into the season with some doubts, which were based on aspects of team performance the last couple of years, but I was a Hoke supporter.
Two things have happened since. One the obvious, like we saw today. But also then, we've seen player and team improvement in many ways. Putting the two things together it adds up to bad coaching at the top. Something is way out of sync, and it's on the head coach.

|11 hours 6 min ago||Out here in NM||
I left the sports bar, scene of a steady dwindling crew of alumni, when the game was halted. I came home and followed the radio for the next two hours, all the while making mixed-result attempts to check out the general mood of the blog. I then listened to the remainder of the game online. I couldn't bear to watch.
I still have a pulse, last I checked that.

Sign of things, bad things.
|13 hours 9 min ago||Some big plays were expected||
And they happened, but overall yes the D did a good job. Someone should start a Jordan Lewis Appreciation Thread - the guy played his ass off today.
Problem was that we didn't do jack on offense and our special teams gave up a punt return for a TD and several long run backs. It was as if they have not learned how to cover the lanes on returns.
Utah came in well prepared - but that's just another way of saying that we were thoroughly outcoached, yet again.

We've got a 503 Bad Gateway out here in the greater Southwest...

Well, our TEAM is terrible and our COACHES are unbearable. That's about it.

They should make Brandon go out there and sweep away the 4 inches of water around the bench areas.

Oh, no committees please. I am reminded of my late father's observation that "they assigned a committee to design the horse and they came up with a mule."

This team is such a cluster**** that I'll be impressed with any win in the Big Ten. It's stormin' in Ann Arbor - today's washout is the perfect metaphor.

If or better said when we get a new coach then I hope that it is someone who can run a program, in which case said coach gets free reign to hire whoever suits the coach best. None of this "hey keep this guy or that guy on staff." We'll lose some good people but it would necessary.

Mark Snyder would. And Michael Rosenberg would probably take a LOA from Sports Illustrated to help him out.

|5 days 14 hours ago||1995?||
I remember in 1995 I was out doing some work in a neighborhood in Albuquerque and a couple of friends drove by telling me that Michigan was beating the hell out of Ohio State (Biakabutuka game). I went crazy because I really wasn't paying attention to that game - OSU was supposed to walk all over us. One of my friends joked that I was about to start knocking on everyone's doors to see if I might stumble on someone with satellite TV, which not too many folks had in those days. That doesn't answer your question, but back then I don't believe that all the games were televised. Not the case in 1997, when I could go to the sports bar down the street and watch every game.

The curse of William Clay Ford, with which some of us have had to spend our entire lives, may be over.

Carolina seems so focused on keeping the barrels off of Newton that they are missing the fireballs coming in the form of Mosley.

|6 days 22 hours ago||Turnovers||
We have stats from this year to be concerned about - ours. If we get sloppy the way we did yesterday during the second quarter then we could have hell to pay with Utah. I liked the way we tightened up at the half against Miami but I don't think that we'll have the same luxury this week.

Though Forcier never came close to getting a degree anywhere. Did Rawls finish his coursework at Michigan? I thought he is a senior at Central.

It appears as though his absence really made a difference. CMU was blown out in part because they had no running game. I hope this isn't serious - he looks to have a breakout season in Mt. Pleasant.
