Yeah cause that has really paid dividends for us this year. Look at we moved the ball and scored against teams with a pulse this year.

He also scored four touchdowns in one game.

|1 day 14 hours ago||His career as Michigan coach||
His career as Michigan coach is over. Its just a question of now or in November. He was on the thinnest of ice before Morris got hurt and this just tightened the noose around his neck. He could be fired today for complete incompetence as a coach. He could be fired today for negligence on his handling of Morris. Either or both will get him fired by end of the season.
|1 day 14 hours ago||I believe if a helmet is||
I believe if a helmet is ripped off a ref can allow him to stay in the game. Its when it flies off on a normal that you have to leave. It is trying to make sure players strap their helmets on tight but of course it has unintended consequences... although not for a team with a halfway competent head coach, but i digress
|1 day 15 hours ago||If you are inferring that||
If you are inferring that they tried to bury it or get the doctors to disseminate a false and less serious diagnosis that is beyond despicable.
|1 day 16 hours ago||This is not a bureaucratic||
This is not a bureaucratic issue. Either Hoke is the fall guy or he thought he could get away with lying. Even dumb fuck Hoke had to know that Morris had neurological tests on Sunday. Didn't he say he spoke with Morris on Sunday?
|1 day 16 hours ago||Does Hoke make it through the||
Does Hoke make it through the day? Does Brandon? Through 48 hrs of media shit storm and 24 hrs after the apparent diagnosis while the shit storm is raging, he still has no clue that his QB was concussed? He is either negligent or absolutely incompetent. This is bad on many levels.
|2 days 8 hours ago||It won't happen until next||
It won't happen until next year. I'm sure close to, if not more than, 100k tickets have already been sold. It needs to be something visual, whether that is an empty stadium/section. everyone walking out en masse or bags on your heads. But give up tryin to get attendance below 100k this year. It won't happen. Announced attendance is so manipulated anyway, Brandon will just have another miscommunication with Coke or Jiffy Lube to offload the tickets
|2 days 11 hours ago||Tickets are sold. who shows||
Tickets are sold. who shows up or doesn't show up will not impact the announced attendance.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Agreed, the "gate" doesn't||
Agreed, the "gate" doesn't matter for attendance purposes, its all about ticket sales. And I'm guessing most of the tickets for the rest of the season have been sold. Boycotting (or even better walking out en masse shortly after kickoff or during the coin toss) will certainly make it look bad on TV but won't impact the attendance number

I think I read this same press release in a mad libs once.
|3 days 3 hours ago||So our official statement is||
So our official statement is that he was removed from a game due to injury (or even better an aggrevation of an injury he sustained earlier) that his coach stated emphatically he didn't see?
|3 days 8 hours ago||The "stay bonus" has nothing||
The "stay bonus" has nothing to do with what Brandon things about him. It was a normal bonus that he got if he was still employed. Saving $1 million should have no impact, its a rounding error when talking about hiring/firing a coach.
|3 days 12 hours ago||Agreed. There is (or should||
Agreed. There is (or should be) a 0% chance he comes back next year and you'd have to be crazy to think otherwise. No reason to keep him around. That is based just on performance. The Morris fiasco makes this situation even more untenable.
|4 days 3 hours ago||Every decision they made||
Every decision they made about Morris was wrong. From having him start, when it should've been obvious he wasn't ready and to the amount they let him play.
1) Morris never shouldve started. I have no idea why they thought he'd be ready. If their answer was that they would have to dumb down the playbook for him, that is evidence he was not ready to start. They game they called had little chance to consistently move the ball.
2) Morris should've been taken out of the game on multiple occasions. It was clear by halftime that we had no offense with him back there. He was ineffective for 3 quarters. turnover machine. Then he gets beat the fuck up, has obvious limp and then takes a vicious late hit yet he still doesn't get taken out.
|4 days 4 hours ago||It really makes me wonder||
It really makes me wonder what the fuck he does during the game. He doesn't seem to know anything that is going on in the game. He just stands there with his fucking arms crossed.
|4 days 4 hours ago||I'm sorry but thats his||
I'm sorry but thats his fucking job. Every player will try to play and stay in the game and its up to the coaches to notice and have a fucking conscience. Shane was destroyed and should've been taking out long before he was finally removed. The last snap was just inexcusable
|4 days 4 hours ago||This is now multiple times||
This is now multiple times this season he has exhibited cruel and unusual punishment on his players. Have to cut the cord now. He does not deserve to address the media as a coach after this game. If he had any honor, he would resign
|4 days 4 hours ago||Fucking should've kiffin'ed||
Fucking should've kiffin'ed him today and canned him before he hit the locker room

You really think balloons are the right call? I think they are too small and difficult to fill due to the viscosity of the mayo. I think you should aim higher with your kickstarter to fund the construction of a trebuchet armed with bowls of mayo to attack UM2k1.
|1 week 1 day ago||Congratulations. For every||
Congratulations. For every double post, Dave Brandon would like to offer you two free tickets to the Minnesota vs. Michigan game on Saturday, September 27th.
Supplies are not terribly limited, so no need to act now!!!!

Still nothing on Ask Jeeves, so it couldn't be that public
|1 week 1 day ago||The truth and the explanation||
The truth and the explanation may not be in harmony. A store in the Union had a promotion listed of two free tickets to the Minnesota game if you buy two Coke products. So it looked like we were offering two tickets for $3. What your wrote above was the CYA by the Athletic Department. No matter what the explanation or real story is, we look 1,000 times more pathetic this morning than we did yesterday morning.... and that says alot. To the casual observer, we look like a damn burning shipwreck covered in feces
|1 week 1 day ago||Although I'm not disputing||
Although I'm not disputing that at this point of his career, he probably has a little David Carritis in him in that hes terrified of the pressure and is getting awfully antsy back there and feels phatom pressure, I have to believe that he is significantly hurt. He has tried to throw a few deep balls that weren't even close to reaching their targets and had no zip. I noted to my friends a few times in the game that Gardner all of a sudden looks like he has an incredibly weak arm.
Also on his 2nd interception, assuming the target was Canteen (and it wasn't a wrong route) there was no way that ball was making it to Canteen, even if there were no defenders there. That you can't chalk up to being broken or feeling phatom pressure

What if we offer him two Cokes?

Not sure I believe this... I just checked the Oxford-English dictionary. Apparently the definition of "miscommunication" is not "Fuck, people found out about this. ABORT, ABORT, ABORT!!"
