So my sister lives in AZ and attended Spring Training and bumped into the one and only JH. She didn't have any Michigan gear so she got him to sign her ticket. Saw her this weekend and that was her gift to me for my 30th birthday! So cool.

I've been reading this blog since 2006, but never really take the time to comment.
But this...this is just something else. I found myself gravitating to this site for the insightful commentary, for the detailed breakdowns like the UFR that made me a more knowledgable fan.
I grew up 30 miles from Pasadena. I went to more Rose Bowls before I was 16 than most fans of other B1G schools will go to in a lifetime. I, along with the rest of the fanbase suffered through the RR years, certain it would just be a matter of time before we turned it around.
After this weekend though, the problem has become apparent. Michigan is too arrogant....The "This is Michigan," mantra leaks through all levels of the program. This blog has become a prime example...we eat our own. RR was torpedoed from the get go. Hoke was great until he started losing. Did he mismanage the Morris situation...Yes. Was he trying to put a guy in that he knew was concussed...No. Do we even know if he was concussed yet?
The state of this blog and the program overall is just sad. I would have thought that the trauma of the RR years would have tempered us all to realize the program is broken and will take a long time to fix. Getting a new coach every 4 years is not going to speed up the process.
If Hoke is gone, which by all appearances he will be, whomever is doing the hiring better open up the checkbook and promise a long tenure. If I were a top notch HC I wouldn't touch this job with a hazmat suit right now....

I am actually looking for four tickets and if they are still available I will snatch them up immediately.

I can't say why, after following this blog since 2007 that I chose this as my first post, other than my love for Denard. I have some concerns about his transition but I suspect he will find a way to make an impact. Good luck dilithium.
