I have maintained this year that hoke should be fired as soon as michigan reaches 7 losses. But this has become unbearable. I see no gain by having him finish out the season.

Once we get to 7 losses and a bowl is shot, the trigger will be pulled. No earlier.

Follow up question...if a game is on ABC in your area, can you still get it on the watchespn app? Or does it get blacked out for ABC only?

Best game on right now may be UVA Louisville. UVA just picked off the cards for first and 10 on the 15.

|39 weeks 4 days ago||Considering this trend is||
Considering this trend is across the board and not just limited to Michigan, I can't agree more with this statement. I'm a 2010/2011 grad who sat thru the entire 2008 Northwestern game, but I know I'm in the minority.
For many if not most students, the tailgate is the event. And the game, if you make it, is often simply coming down either in blazing heat or wind and rain on metal bleachers, often while sitting in the 80th row. And while not showing up makes no sense to me, I respect that 40,000 other students may not share my opinion, and have a hard time believing that 20,000 are as passionate as I am.
What is the solution if you really want to increase overall attendance? We have enough demand for tickets (as long as the opponent is not Akron). A basketball-style system of claim periods in a capped student section might make things better. The students who really want to go will claim, while those who don't may not for fear of losing their ability to claim for the rest of the season. Will the students hate it? Yes. But I have a hard time believing that whatever system is created they will be happy.

Hoke is clearly in over his head. He can recruit, but has no ability to manage his coaching staff or Gameplan. I'm for consistency and giving more time in general, but it's hard to see someone so lost moving the program forward in the next 1-2 years.

But no one here has brought up the fact that freshman enrollment is dropping. In 2011, 250 fewer freshman enrolled then the peak in 2010. Another 100 fewer than 2011 than 2012, and the 2013 class is not expected to be bigger than that of 2012. That's about 1,000 fewer students overall. And while this factor should not be considered the only one, the fact that M doesn't plan to admit 6500 freshmen per year going forward can't be ignored.

Most of his comments are of the "that's what we're all thinking type". But for me, when you start to disparage people on an ethnic, religious, racial, or national basis, you've crossed the line and I am offended.
But he's going to apologize and it will be accepted. At that point I'll cease to be offended. And all will be well again until he says something else dumb, like he's prone to do.
|1 year 25 weeks ago||Is the issue here that student tickets are full season?||
I'm starting to think the issue is not necessarily the fact that all students get tickets, but are required to purchase for the whole season. While the out of state issue could still exist to an extent, I envision the following system as being a solution:
Tickets are done on a game by game basis
