It would take a lot for NW to fire Fitz. He's led them to three consecutive winning seasons, a 10-win season, and their first bowl victory in over six decades. He also played there, he's from there, and he would be very unlikely to leave.
His seat is not hot in any sense, and NW would be insane to fire him.

Fitzgerald was Randy Walker's choice to succeed him as coach. I respect the NW AD for honoring Walker's wishes after his tragic death and promoting Fitz despite his young age and minimal coaching experience at the time.

Let's be honest: we should have known something was off when Hoke said that a Big Ten championship, and not a national championship, should be the program's ultimate goal (Drew Sharp's douchebaggery notwithstanding). Can you imagine Urban Meyer talking like that?

When I clicked on this thread, I thought it would say that you're skipping the game because of some moral principle or because your wife/daughter/daughter-in-law is going into labor or because someone close to you just passed away or because David Brandon ran over your cat and spat on its carcass. But skipping the game because you disagree with the scheduling? That's weak.
|1 week 5 days ago||The only way this would||
The only way this would happen is if Hoke shits the bed in 2014 AND 2015 (I can't see David Brandon not giving him at least five years) and Jim Harbaugh wins the Super Bowl this year (preferably in a rematch against his brother). Hoke would be out and Harbaugh would have achieved the one goal that kept him tied to the 49ers despite their increasingly toxic relationship, opening the door for Harbaugh to return to his alma mater.
Having said that, it's not gonna happen. That ship has sailed.

I concede that Nuss is an upgrade over Borges, but calling him a poor QB coach based on a single off-handed remark by DG ignores his track record. Dude built offenses at UCLA and Auburn that put up 40 and 30 points a game, respectively, and turned Cade McNown and Jason Campbell into first round draft picks. It didn't work out for him at Michigan, but I don't think it's fair to call someone with his track record a bad coach. Ten years ago, I would have loved to have Borges instead of Terry Malone or Mike DeBord calling plays for Chad Henne.

Only if our new Chinese overlords allow the game to proceed as scheduled.

That's kind of what happens when you get paid $1.7 million a year.

1) Win over OSU
2) Win over MSU
3) Win over ND
We have exactly one win over OSU in the past ten years. We desperately need to restore competitiveness to that rivalry. Beating MSU is arguably just as important since we're supposed to be the dominant party in that rivalry.
If we beat MSU and OSU, I can stomach a loss to ND because we've dominated them lately. Also, let's be honest: no one really gives a shit about beating ND.

Every time I hear/read someone referring to Ohio State as "O$U" or "Sukeyes" or "Fuckeyes", I cringe.

Regarding his mother's condition, wouldn't it be better if he sat out a year? I assume that it would be easier for him to visit home more often this next year if he's on the scout team than it would be if he's on the active roster...

I think Isaac will be a great running back and I really hope he ends up at Michigan, but a blind turtle could have rushed for 87 yards against Cal's defense last year.

I would hope that being drafted as a lottery pick doesn't mean that he can no longer be Canadian.

Good Lord, I never thought anyone could make Tressel look good. For all his two-facedness, Tressel never badmouthed Carr/Rodriguez on the recruiting trail.

And how many Big Ten championships have we won in those six years?

I think Justice Hayes committed to Michigan while Rodriguez was still coach.

After the past two seasons, nothing short of wins over both OSU and MSU would satisfy me. I refuse to pick one. The only thing I can stomach is a loss to ND
|18 weeks 4 days ago||As long as John Beilein is||
As long as John Beilein is our coach, I'm not worried. This staff has an incredible track record of identifying and developing talent, squeezing every last bit of production out of its players, and ultimately exceeding expectations.
It sucks that the worst case scenario has come to pass (as departures go), but I'm excited for next year nonetheless. Caris, Walton, and Zak are poised to make huge leaps, and Donnal and Chatman have the makings of impact freshmen. I think we'll be just fine.

I tell you this: 20 years from now, Kate Upton will be known as "that girl who passed on the chance to date Spike Albrecht".
|18 weeks 6 days ago||I guess with the huge number||
I guess with the huge number of high school basketball programs in America coupled with the relatively limited number of scholarships that D-1 programs have to offer, it's easier for prospects to fly under the radar and there are mor opportunities for coaches to find a diamond in the rough.
|19 weeks 1 hour ago||Let's not get pulled toward||
Let's not get pulled toward extremes. Hoke does have a fairly impressive track record of resurrecting moribund programs. Last season's woes don't erase his earlier accomplishments. He has also demonstrated an ability to recruit elite talent and, relatedly, hire top shelf assistant coaches. But the recent mediocrity is troubling and a possible indication that he may be in over his head with respect to overseeing an elite program and getting the most out of his players.
All that can be said now is that this season is crucial. There are no more excuses.

I think we need wins against MSU and OSU. I can stomach a loss to ND. Agreed that we have to get to Indy.

I also thought that was weird. It could mean that they won't confirm to the kid's coach that they offered him.

I think Beilein's track record on talent evaluation speaks for itself.

I'm surprised Craig Ferguson isn't mentioned more. He's my favorite of the late night crew.

I'm rooting for UConn, but because Calipari is a scumbag, not because of any threat to the Fab Five's legacy.

And that's why it's stupid. The stereotype of the unskilled, unathletic white basketball player is so lacking in basis, it's not even funny.
