Charitably, let's just say it lacks self-awareness.

I do this as well, I think it annoys my friends and family.
|2 days 5 hours ago||Because it's so pointless.||
Because it's so pointless. Hoke acts like if moose and squirrel find out about injuries, all of Pottsylvania's* nefarious plans will be ruined.
*Brandon as Fearless Leader amuses me, Hoke is totally Boris, but I have no idea who Natasha is in this metaphor. Bullwinkle is the press, and Rocky is the fans.
|2 days 5 hours ago||The amazing thing is that in||
The amazing thing is that in his first year:
1) Hoke goes for that
2) He takes the blame for the delay of game
You know how I know that? Because he fucking did.

A fair point, but I bet he could take out a small child if he had to.

The mascot test:
1) Is your costume a hand crafted piece of art, probably created under the influence of brain altering chemicals?
2) Is your mascot a live animal that could potentially kill someone if it escaped on the sideline?
If the answer to those two questions is "no" you should not have a mascot.

If we just want a figurehead, just fucking prop up Bo's corpse and be done with it.
|3 days 18 hours ago||There was one completely||
There was one completely random play where we got to the line with like 32 on the play clock and snapped at about 20. And then never went back to it, except for the play that forced the Miami timeout during the debacle of a two minute drill.

Technically a turnover since it was a muffed kick.

Wrong? I mean, they burnt down the capital and everything.
|6 days 14 hours ago||The tape and whether they saw||
The tape and whether they saw it or not is irrelevant. Anyone with two brain cells could determine roughly what happened in that elevator from the first tape. And Goodell determined that it was worth exactly half as much as a first offense for smoking pot. In his tenure 56 players have been charged with domestic violence, resulting in 13 total games suspended. That's embarrassing.

Punts from the opponent's 29.

And the reaction in State College tonight proves exactly why they should have gotten the death penalty.
|1 week 1 day ago||Second half was like||
Second half was like legitimately good and stuff. So they're planning on breaking our hearts with a Novemeber free fall.
|1 week 1 day ago||That was like the entire||
That was like the entire Lions experience in one half, only they're still leading.
Flashes of brilliant all world talent? Check.
No running game? Check.
Undisciplined penalties? Check check check.
A member of the thin/crappy secondary getting hurt? Check!
|1 week 2 days ago||Well, right, Hoke fucked that||
Well, right, Hoke fucked that up. But Rodriguez is not exactly blameless when it comes to Gibbons things, which is why I thought the statement was weird.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yeah, that was a weird||
Yeah, that was a weird statement.

A member institution ignored an incredibly serious crime to protect its football program.
They should have gotten the death penalty.

I watched the first half of their game yesterday. That team is broken right now.

Think anyone else in the conference would still have it be a contest in Eugene?
|1 week 2 days ago||State beats Minnesota, at the||
State beats Minnesota, at the moment. I usually think Wisconsin will pull it together, but I'm not sure about Gary Anderson.
But really, nobody wins. At least nobody from the conference will be getting embarrassed in the playoff!

Willingham is the better comparison, personality wise.
|1 week 3 days ago||The one that has the||
The one that has the theoretical best chance of being fixed but won't be becauase our CB coach isn't a fucking corner or someone with secondary experience is for the corners to actually stress the WRs at the line when playing press. If you're at the line of scrimmage but just trying to run with the receivers, then slant and go routes will murder you all day. Which was a bit of a problem, obviously.
Also maybe identifying and blocking Sheldon Day would have maybe been a good idea. The moment I gave up on the coaching staff was the back to back plays he was simply unblocked and came in on Gardner free.
|1 week 3 days ago||Also QBs who get hit a lot||
Also QBs who get hit a lot start making mistakes. Gardner made some damn near miraculous throws under pressure in the first half, but between the hits and the score, the turnovers happened.
|1 week 3 days ago||Hating the press is totally||
Hating the press is totally reasonable. They suck at their jobs and ask inane questions built on stupid narratives for the most part.
It's just a hell of a lot less charming if you can't win.
|1 week 3 days ago||Like literally light him on||
Like literally light him on fire?
|1 week 3 days ago||Totally unprepared. If||
Totally unprepared. If you're going to play press man, actually hit the guys. Otherwise you're just asking to get beat over the top and slants will murder you. Someday we'll develop another elite pass rusher. Maybe we should attack ND's small corners with jump balls to our giant, super fast, Biletnikoff candidate?
Bonus kudos for keeping our only two offensive weapons to get hurt in meaningless blowout action. That was pretty awesome.
There's theoretically plenty of talent on this team now. It is not being developed and not being schemed into good positions at this point. Which means this staff has failed.
Unfortunately, our AD is an idiot, who would probably get snowed under by a flashy Lane Kiffin type, who would further destroy the program.
|1 week 3 days ago||Awful corner play. No pass||
Awful corner play. No pass rush. Only positive was it seemed like Jake was more comfortable and played fine in the middle. Which is literally the only positive from the entire night in any part of the game.

Easy to scheme against our offensive line, which returned to being swiss cheese.

As others have said, can't fire him unless you fire Brandon first, because he'll just fuck up the hire again.
