LOL, is that RIch Rod on the right in that pic? ( oops, should be reply to #21 )

Thank You for bringing this up. I cringe every time I hear it, at first and I'm like " Who the Hell???"... and then they say the Head Coach at the end and I just feel so dirty for hearing that mess. I am sure they are all nice, rich and important people and all but that HAS to GO.
It's time to get in the right groove and build upon the solid foundation that's been started again by the hiring of JH.
All the Gimmicky Junk that DB dumped on us has to be cleaned up or at least watered down.
The whole team # thing has its place in my opion but shouldn't be overused. Honoring the past and the greatness that came before is awesome and all but it should never blur the HERE AND NOW, something that the old regime seemed to never get right.

is the friggin' arrogance and stubborness of Hoke. Now, with our big rival game next Saturday, when Gardner can't walk or throw or anything because he gave it his all, we will have a Zero experience quarterback to throw to the wolves. Great job Jackass!
Not having a legitimate 2nd stringer to come in from time to time this season to try to avoid going 3 and out every friggin' series is an absolute glaring failure of this arrogant, fat , idiot loser who will be fired after we get pasted by the obviously better team from the south.
It makes me sick! The free pass is so over with this guy, get some Real Football people in here to run the decision making for our program. Not these corporate yes men pieces of shit who only care about $$$.
The Football Culture is so F#cked right now in Ann Arbor, who will be the hero to come in and save our beloved football program? Does it NEED to be a former player? A True Michigan Man? ( whatever that really means anyway ). I say who gives a shit, get the best Football Minds together and let's put a Real Program together. All this loyalty to mediocrity is unacceptable.
- when the quarterback is sucking balls, you put in another guy ( and don't say there isn't another guy )
- when play calling is predictable and ineffective, you get on the damn headset and chew your OC's head off DURING THE GAME and make him run something else!
- well coached players rarely make the same mistakes twice, especially all season long
- a coach who throws his players under the bus, ever, is on his way out because he has failed and is grasping at anything to prolong his employement.
When Hoke is fired, nobody in DIV 1A will hire him, NOBODY. He is FINISHED.

That is Exactly how I feel. The Free Pass is officially over and the Sobering Reality is we have an Inept Head Coach who is basically a good Bullshitter who knows how to get the job and position and support.
But now, at the end of the day we see what we've really got, and it Kills Me as a Life Long Michigan Fan to have Mr. Deer in the Headlights with lame post game excuses and no future in Big Time College Football.
Seriously, can anyone name 1 school anywhere would would want him as their Head Coach right now?
I pray an exit strategy is already being set up and a top notch Coach is on our radar.
Hell, find a Mediocre NFL Head Coach who was Successful in the College ranks and misses coaching up the players and developing the young guys and who knew how to get the most out of his players.

When you look at yourself in the Mirror, do you have the Deer in the Headlights look? Or are you thinking, " I need some Cheeseburgers Damnit!"
How or when does a Head Coach know that he has lost his team?
Once a Team is lost, what is the best way to regain their respect and faith in you? And here's a little hint, don't try telling them, "We have to get better and the players just need to execute", because that is not the right answer.
How would you rate your Head Coaching performance this year on a scale of 1 to 10. And don't take 5 minutes to bend the question and re-define Head Coach or anything like that, just give me a number right now and be honest.
