|2 days 18 hours ago||Not sure if it was this play||
Not sure if it was this play or not, but either after an interception or a sack the camera went to Hoke clapping joyfully.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Agreed||
Yep. I think everyone can pretty much agree something serious lacking in terms of off-season conditioning based on the lack of development we have seen last few years from the bowl game to the spring game, and from the spring game to the first game in the fall. There just hasn't been any progress from a physicality standpoint.
|2 days 22 hours ago||Did anyone else notice Morris||
Did anyone else notice Morris and Gardner and other players laughing/joking/having fun on the sidelines this weekend? It pisses me off. When you're losing to one of your biggest rivals and your having a great ol' time on the sidelines, it just seems clear the mentality of this team is not right. They should be fucking pissed, not only for this loss but every loss. I feel the fans are more pissed than the players during these losing games, and that's not right.
|2 days 23 hours ago||God this is pathetic. I hope||
God this is pathetic. I hope major rumors don't start to rumble, that would cause JH to have to come out publicly and say he will not be coaching at Michigan (Les Miles 2007 style) killing any slight/tiny chance that he might actually come.
|1 week 2 days ago||Also: I think we simply need||
Also: I think we simply need to clear house on position coaches. If Hoke wants to be a "hands off" type of ceo coach, that's fine, but at least let Nuss get his own competent guys in place. Maybe Hoke's guys worked out at Ball State and SDSU, but not against top notch D1 competition.
|1 week 2 days ago||As much as people think||
As much as people think Nussmeier is really sucking, I'd like to wait until the end of the season for these types of evaluations. He may have just not had enough time yet with these players and getting them all acclimated to his new system. If he's as good as advertised before the season started, he should be showing some strides in improvement by the OSU game, if not before. Let's see, this week will be a good benchmark to see if there have been any improvements against a good defense.

I wish he would have played RB at Michigan.
|1 week 5 days ago||I just don't see any way he||
I just don't see any way he comes here because its a major risk for him. If he comes here and can't turn this tire fire around (which will be no easy feat even for the best coaches out there), there is a chance that he would never be able to get back to an NFL HC position. Then he's screwed. He can go to another NFL team for another 4-5 years. Then maybe after that he would come back to college but I just don't see the risk/reward paying off by coming back to college when you can go anywhere you want in the NFL.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Don't know much about him,||
Don't know much about him, but he seems legit.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||His injury?||
I've wondered this as well. Maybe he just has never reached his pre-injury capacity.

Its now the main picture/article on ESPN.com.
Funny thing, is the other article attached to it is 'Rising Coaching Candidates'. First name on the list is Rich Rodriguez.

As an alum I believe I have earned that right as thanks though.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||I can think of several delay||
I can think of several delay of game penalties (some game-changings ones at that) that could have been prevented if there was a grad assistant yelling in hokes headset to call a timeout.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||This is a good article||
This is a good article talking about Miles to Michigan as well as several other coaches: http://www.foxsports.com/college-football/story/hot-seats-michigan-florida-coaching-carousel-dan-mullen-les-miles-jim-harbaugh-top-10-100214
|4 weeks 22 hours ago||I think "the guy behind me||
I think "the guy behind me that relays info" needs to be canned.
Besides this injury stuff, I'm sure we can all think of several examples of delay of game calls, botched time outs, etc that likely could have been prevented if hoke had a headset, or if "the guy behind me" would have been even somewhat competent.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I can't find anything now,||
I can't find anything now, but a few credible people were tweeting yesterday that the whole Jabrill fiasco was just a rumor, and that he is legitimatelly injured.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Sources are telling me Dave||
Sources are telling me Dave Brandon just landed Coke & Dominoes as the official sponsors for tonight's rally.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I know, and it truly sucks.||
I know, and it truly sucks. I honestly feel bad for Hoke going down like this, he genuinely cares about these kids so much. Sure, he may deserve to be fired for his coaching record, but for this? Probably the last reason you would ever expect Hoke to get heat for.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||I wonder how big this story||
I wonder how big this story would be if Michigan was 5-0 right now.
Seriously, though ....Let's get real - People are mad about Hoke's coaching record, not this. I know, it still wasn't a good coaching move, but seriously it was a minor mistake. Not like he made him finish the game. He put him out there for 1 handoff play and took him back out.
I GET IT - He's made too many mistakes as a head coach - but national news on this AGAIN is so overblown.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly. Nick Saban was||
Exactly. Nick Saban was quoted firmly saying "I'm NOT going to be the next Alabama coach", while he was still at Miami. He accepted the Alabama job exactly 1 week later.
No current head coach is going to admit any "interest" in the Michigan job to the media, even if they highly interested. Regardless, all this Harbaugh stuff is all speculation at this point, no matter what the media says one way or the other.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||The most disturbing part is||
The most disturbing part is if Hoke was wearing a headset a lot of these incidents would have never happened.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Welp, national media reporting Hoke||
Welp, national media reporting Hoke must be gone by tomorrow for this. We'll see how this plays out.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||People think that nuss sucks||
People think that nuss sucks are out of your minds. I mean comon guys, he led Bama's offense to a national championship while producing a record-setting QB among several other notable career accolades. He's been here for 5 games and took over a dumpster fire of an offense. Plus for all we know, Hoke is keeping him cuffed. He also doesnt have any of his own offensive staff to help him, just the guys that have been here and seem to also be the cause of this dumpster fire offense. I guarantee if we lose him he will go on to have a VERY successful coach elsewhere and we will be kicking ourselves in the nuts.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||He could end up working out,||
He could end up working out, but I don't think Michigan could afford to take a "chance" on any hire right now. Another bad coach selection and this program is wrecked for a very, very long time.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||We're gonna go out there and||
We're gonna go out there and compete this week in practice
|4 weeks 5 days ago||I know many people strongly||
I know many people strongly disagree, but while Shane has played extremely inconsistently, he also also shown some really bright flashes. Maybe with a few starts under his belt he can turn a corner. With this defense solid and improving, there is at least a glimmer of hope in turning things around and being a legit b10 contender. See cook/msu 2013.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||This is true....but honestly||
This is true....but honestly any coach who is able to return Michigan to a powerhouse level will get NFL rumors, JH included. Even Brady Hoke was getting NFL chatter after his first 11-2 season here.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||You'll be lucky not to be||
You'll be lucky not to be sued by the university.
Also, this is great way to scare the shit out of high-profile recruits and/or current commits.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I see a lot of people saying||
I see a lot of people saying Shane = Garnder and we are screwed no matter who we play... but seems like people are forgetting Gardner has around 20 starts under his belt, and Shane has 1? If anyone is going to progress over the course of the season, it will be Shane. Gardner could continue to get a little better over the season, but seems like he has hit his ceiling (Maybe not a career ceiling, but a ceiling with this offense), whereas Shane could see significant improvement from game to game as he is a TRUE SOPHMORE. I say line the Devins up as WR1 & WR2, put Shane in and see what we can do in the B10. Boom.
