|1 day 18 hours ago||How do you know? I do know||
How do you know? I do know there are a lot of dean position in the school that are open due to retiring/ leaving. They are being filled with interim positions. Mary Sue brought her own team in, and I know this because my wife reported to one if them. She retired when Mary Sue announced her retirement. If the next president is at all concerned with athletics, they could bring their person in. It is not unheard of. I can only hope though.

You keep saying this, but the team gets worse every year!! Even rr teams got better every year.
|1 day 18 hours ago||Do the same with hoke.. What||
Do the same with hoke.. What in his record demands his pay check. Making twice what dantonio makes.
|1 day 18 hours ago||I have to give credit where||
I have to give credit where credit is due. Dantonio and his staff are an amazing set if coaches. They can really coach up a group of players. They are beginning to show discipline as well. They will be scary the next couple years. We need to get better fast. First, is getting rid of Hoke. Hopefully when Mary Sue retires, we get a new AD that doesn't hire his buddy to be coach and pay him 4.5 million per.
|1 day 20 hours ago||I would ship hoke and company||
I would ship hoke and company out of here in a heartbeat to get msu coaches here. This is how you coach. Plus they have beat us 5 of 7 years. So yes I would swap. We could probably get all their coaches for what we are paying Hoke.
|1 day 21 hours ago||The problem is you are not||
The problem is you are expecting them not to develop and grow either.. That's a big assumption.
|1 day 21 hours ago||16 years ago.. Gotta stop||
16 years ago.. Gotta stop living in the past man. That michigans problem. Kids today can't read a clock that's not digital. The were under 5 years old then. They could careless about tradition. I have been saying maybe next year since 98, I'm tired of it.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Problem is, they gave beat us||
Problem is, they gave beat us 5 of those 7 years. So how much more patient should we be forced to be?

Us I hope..
|1 day 21 hours ago||This is depressing||
Just reminds me how bad our coaching is..
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Agree!,||
I said the same thing last week after the MSU game. We don't have to take this. Stop financially supporting this mediocrity. Hit db in the pocket. I will not buy any tickets until the coaching staff matches the facilities. As long as we keep buying tickets, things will not change. STOP BUYING TICKETS!!

He was not hired by Brandon! Research before insulting the OP.

Look at his whole body of work which shows that 12-1 record was clearly is an outlier.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Please explain the definition||
Please explain the definition of "turn around"? He had 1 season at 12-1. His next best season was 9-4. The only other winning season was 7-6. If you call that a turn around, I have some beachfront property to sell.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I would take that deal in a||
I would take that deal in a heart beat. I went to Michigan 8 years, and dislike Hokes coaching so much, I am actually starting to like dantonio! Man of few words, but gets stuff done! I found myself even enjoying their hype video!
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Hoke's past record||
What's great is that one can just google Brady joke and see his performance at all his previous stops. Before he arrived here as a coach, he only had three winning seasons out of eight (7-6, 12-1 and 9-3)What in that resume screams that he could be a successful coach at this level? This is that "good ole boy" network at its best. I refuse to believe that they could not find a coach with better coaching credentials. We are seeing the results of a poor coach. Dave Brandon and his greed will ultimately have to answer to this.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Not his players.. Still rr||
Not his players.. Still rr guys. The first year was a gift and curse at the same time. Some absolutely amazing plays saved that season (see the Notre dame home game). His playmakers are gone. He has not recruited new ones. Only guys on offense making plays are gallon and Gardner and we know who recruited those guys.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||You are absolutely right. As||
You are absolutely right. As long as he keeps that stadium packed, and we keep buying season tickets, nothing will change. We need to stop supporting this mediocrity until he fields a coaching staff that is as amazing as the facilities we have financed. I have pledged not to donate or buy anymore ticket/memorabilia until I feel that I am getting what I pay for. Our ticket prices are the second highest in the country, yet we have not fielded a top five football team in a while. I think the test for a quality coach is to ask if another program, given the opportunity, would try to hire our coach. I don't know any top 50 program that would hire hoke and company.

That was hilarious!! Well played my friend.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||The sad part||
My heart fell in my stomach at the end of the game. Mistakes and all, devin has been a warrior on the field , but when I saw him stop and pause when he clearly could have gotten a first down, I knew his spirit had been broken. He could not bear taking one more hit. I left the room at that point. The offensive line and the coaching staff, including hoke, have failed him miserably.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Yet he won 11 games his first||
Yet he won 11 games his first year with basically the same players. This team has not grown under hoke, in fact, they have regressed.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||On the other side, where||
On the other side, where would we be if we didn't have Robinson, Gardner and gallon. They were rr recruits also. It kills me how fans are quick to blame rr for mediocre players but give him no credit for the play makers who he recruited and didn't abandon ship like Lloyd's guys.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Let's count the number of||
Let's count the number of national championships saban has to the number Carr, Bo, moeller, rr and hoke. Get my drift.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Yes||
I do realize that.. You don't hear these guys saying "we need to get back to michigan football" or " this is Michigan". The are of few words and they go out there and win.
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Thank you sir. At some||
Thank you sir. At some point, as a fan base, we have to be honest with ourselves.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Change in ideology.||
Guys I usually do not respond on this site, but I feel as a proud alum, I need to say this. Until Michigan lets go of the past, we will never be able to compete in the future. We always want to pull up the all time records against other teams that happened 20-30 years ago. Those days are gone. Bo football is gone. Those days were great, but we are well past that. You insisted on hiring a coach who was in touch with tradition and not with winning. Meyer and Dantonio don't give a crap about tradition, they care about winning now. They are trying to create their own legacy and tradition. Our fan base want the coaches to live up to the tradition of a man that coached 30 years ago. If they are not in touch with that tradition, they will be cast of into the abyss. If we are serious about becoming relevant again , we need to get rid of this michigan man nonsense and hire a quality coach. Period. We have a share if a national championship in the last 50 years. We can do better. But we need to stop blindly following this team. Dave Brandon is milking this thing and taking advantage of all of us. He has not put a quality product on the field in a couple years. As long as we keep buying tickets, he will continue to increase prices. Stop buying tickets until we get a quality coaching staff to go along with our top of the line facilities.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||so when we went 3-9 and Nick||
so when we went 3-9 and Nick Sheridan looked like he was playing for the other team, that wasnt RR fault then right? Those same crappy players that RR recruited won 11 games Hokes first year and won a BCS bowl. I bet money you were saying how great Hoke was and how he changed the program. Now, those players, many of whom are not on the team anymore were inferior players recruited by RR eventhough Hoke has had 3 full recruiting classes. That is amazing. When RR lost, it was coaching, when Hoke loses its the players. I am tired of this nonsense. Hoke coaching staff is one of the highest paid in Michigan history. Botton line, Hoke is an assclown. He is over paid and overrated. He belongs coaching a MAC school or speaking to at-risk youth. He was hired by Dave Brandon because he is not a threat to Brandon's authority. Brandon doesnt want a top tier coach because he knows he will have to take a back seat to him. Brandon got what he wanted. A coach with a bunch of catch phrases, that won't say no to him.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||RR fielded a team who made||
RR fielded a team who made lots of mistakes especially on defense. Ultimately he paid the price. You cannot blame the coach for that three years and now blame the players for this three years because you think the coach is some mythical "Michigan Man". Last I checked he didnt graduate from michigan either.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||Had the coaches not switched||
Had the coaches not switched him to WR last year and burn a year of training at QB, who knows, maybe he could read defense better. Maybe the secondary would be better had they not put their best corner Blake Countess as the gunner on special teams and blow his knee out. He would have had an additional year of experience.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||the problem is ALL his QB's||
the problem is ALL his QB's throw pics! Denard, Devin and even that Freshman they brought in last year. He only played like 2 downs and he threw one pick.
