I thought it was louder at OSU 2011 but I can never tell anyways because I'm always yelling (you're welcome)

It's a bad sign when they can't beat penn state, who has half a team

Ehh just a function of geography. I see M stuff in NYC on a daily basis. OSU not so much

Given Al's salary I'd say that's more like a $650,000 question...

I'm sure he's hearing otherwise from e.g. Nick Saban but I haven't heard a single credible source suggest Hoke's job is in any jeopardy right now, so not sure where he's getting that nonsense.

Rule #1 in sports / coaching: you don't call out the fans. Completely agree with all of this.

I'm of the opinion that if you're really firm in your commitment, you don't need to make public statements about how firm in your commitment you are. Color me extremely skeptical / nervous here.

This is why no matter what I will not be booing the team at the game this weekend. Al Borges could walk out to midfield and take a shit on the M and I won't boo.

I'd be shocked if we cracked 14 points on offense in regulation. They prob have the second best defense after MSU we'll face this year, right?

I dunno, players who look better to me now than in game one: Washington, Black, Clark, Wormley, and Henry. I can't think of one I think looks worse
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Usually I think using the||
Usually I think using the word 'unacceptable' in conjunction with describing the performance of a college football team is ridiculous, but there is one thing I actually find unacceptable: players or units getting worse over the course of a season. Look at the offensive line. I think it has gotten worse and more confused basically every week. Fitz gets no better at blocking. Devin has regressed massively. Now contrast this with Mattison's D. I feel like I see more out of those guys every week at most positions. That's how it needs to be, no questions asked. College players are basically all at a stage of development where they should all be improving markedly week to week, and Borges can't get that done.

Our d line was stellar this past game and the young guys have been showing improvement week to week. What are you talking about?

Prayers and positive juju for you sir. Good luck to you and yours
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I'm going to have to disagree||
I'm going to have to disagree with you strongly. Let's assume for a second that firing an OC mid-season is bad and regardless of what will happen to Borges eventually, the administration will try to avoid this. Given that, almost regardless of what happens in-season, it seems to be in Hoke's best interest to circle the wagons until the changes actually need to be made at the end of season. He gains little by publicly throwing his staff under the bus mid-season before the changes, so the fact that he says little and defends the play calling, in my mind, reveals very little information about his true intent. The only time I could see this helping a coach is if the head coach is on the hot seat as well, and needs to buy some time. Hoke isn't, and doesn't.

Ironically all the losing and crappiness has made my relationship with sports all the more healthy. I have wayyy more perspective on things when the team (and coaching) straight up just sucks.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Serious question for people:||
Serious question for people: why is everyone convinced that Hoke won't make serious changes to the staff after this year? Everyone seems to be telling themselves that basically if Brandon doesn't force him, he'd be more than happy to keep Borges and Funk until the end of time. Where does this come from? Past history retaining underperforming coaches/coordinators? Something else I don't know about? If it's just going based off of his comments, I don't take much from those. In most cases, even if he was thinking about making big changes, he would probably be publicly defending his guys until the end.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Does anyone else just not||
Does anyone else just not care any more? There would have been years where I would have been furious about yesterday and the loss would have ruined my weekend. Instead I shrugged, went to get dinner with friends, and went out for a pleasant evening. I'm numb to losing at this stage.
|5 weeks 16 hours ago||I've been quietly hoping that||
I've been quietly hoping that Brandon will agitate for change. He doesn't seem like the kind of guy who will let Borges continue to fart away games and do nothing. I think he has as high or higher expectations for the program than any of us and will throw boatloads of money at Hoke's staff until the right guys are in place

I don't usually comment on this, but it's in very poor taste to wear the flag as clothing. It's similar in nature to flying another flag above it or letting it touch the ground - you're just not supposed to do it. If you want to honor the flag/troops, this is basically the opposite of what you should do.

I wish I could upvote you so hard, man. I want to grab everyone on this board by the shirt and shake them right now
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Jesus H. Christ, you guys,||
Jesus H. Christ, you guys, it's just football. I love this team with all my heart but at some point, you have to just throw up your hands and say 'oh well.' I can't understand the extent of the garment-rending sometimes. Everybody needs to take a step back and realize that none of this really affects your life. It's all really fun when it's going well and a bummer when it doesn't go your way, but honestly, it's a game played by teenagers and early 20-somethings.
Do we kind of suck this year? Yup. Will MSU and OSU fans laugh at us and our ineptitude? Yup. Does it make an ounce of difference to the actual quality of your life? Nope. Go enjoy your world-class degree and the high paying job it most likely earned you. The best thing about the whole deal? There's always next year.
So I say, support the players and enjoy the good times as much as you can, because there are only so many of them to be had.

People don't pay coaches for hindsight. A little foresight every once in awhile would be nice.

I would punt. The possibility of the other team getting a field goal is important. If you take a safety and they get a field goal, basically game over. If you punt and hold them to a FG you still have a fighting chance.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||Gallon is a great example.||
Gallon is a great example. He's a very good but not elite athlete. Yet he runs exquisite routes and catches everything in his radius. Hence he will be in the NFL soon. Only point I was making is that athleticism isn't everything, actual skill is extremely important too
