I truly believe he ends up with a job in the athletic department. Or he retires. I just don't see him coaching somewhere else. I think getting fired from this job is going to drain him.

Well what a coincidence because all of Hoke's players seem to think he'll be back too!!!

I am worn out from all the PANIC that's happened every time a Thing goes down here. Almost everything has turned out differently than we have expected. I have no idea what Hackett will do. He does not strike me as being down to earth but he could very well be a man who chooses his words wisely. To quote Sun Tzu, "pretend inferiority and encourage arrogance." Time will tell and that is all.

I don't think Hoke actually canned Borges. I used to, but now I don't.

Ohio State is better this year.
We are worse this year.
It is in their venue.
We don't have the same qb we had last year.
This ain't happening.

Are you suggesting that Schlissel's brother is going to assassinate him?!?!

You can always advocate a hot coordinator but do you see Hackett or Schlissel ever being the type to hire a guy who has never been a head coach?

Count me as one who thinks Schiano could be somewhat successful here. I really couldn't care less what his record is in the NFL as they are two different games (NFL vs college). Schiano did reasonably well at Rutgers given the talent he had. When he got some elite players he had a great season. At least he showed he could develop good college football players. I would rather have him than many of the 2nd time options out there.

Let's back it up and ask what if Jason forcier or Antonio Bass had played out their eligibility through 2009? Where would we be now?

At this moment there is only one person I'm concerned with whether they can be savvy enough to make the right decision in a high pressure situation and that person is Jim Hackett.
|4 days 12 hours ago||So you think Rodriguez didn't||
So you think Rodriguez didn't go to all the players that were on the team and try to explain that he would use them effectively in his offense? The point is there were many around the program telling these guys that they "weren't a fit" for the new offense even though that is a complete myth. Then you had people complaining that Rodriguez yelled and swore too much and it all just piled on.

Okay then why was there virtually no attrition when Hoke came in? Did he not bring a schematic change?
|4 days 13 hours ago||The factor that will be||
The factor that will be difficult to predict is how his abrasive personality will affect the players on the team. As Brian and Ace have pointed out, the "country club" atmosphere around here could lead to quite a culture shock if someone with Harbaugh's personality were to come in. That's why it's important for all the former players who rallied around Hoke to do the same, and I think they would, for Harbaugh. Otherwise we could see more attrition like we did with Rodriguez (since it is clear that unanimous support was not there for Rodriguez). The good news is that this team has been built with so much depth that similar attrition levels shouldn't have nearly the same impact as they did in 2008, since 2015 should not be anything resembling a rebuilding year to begin with the way it was in 2008.
