“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”

|2 days 1 hour ago||Here's what I don't get||
Disclaimer: I don't think Brady Hoke is evil and I'm for giving him a fair chance to explain the situation.
That said, I don't get the "I assume so" answer. It seems to me that that's something he should have known by the time the decision was made to put Morris back on the field. Now let's give Hoke the benefit of the doubt and say that he trusts his staff to make the right decisions on the sideline and doesn't feel the need to ask questions. Couldn't he have confirmed after the game what attention Morris received?
|2 days 18 hours ago||I'm sure||
I'm sure this is exactly what Schlissel wants to deal with tomorrow morning.
|2 days 21 hours ago||He won't address it||
Based on how I've seen him address reaction to things he's done as AD, I don't expect him to say anything. The official line will come from Hoke.
|2 days 22 hours ago||You may be on to something here||
I don't trust Brandon to fire Hoke any earlier than the end of the season, if at all. Brandon himself looks pretty well entrenched: the Athletic Department has made money and influential donors are behind him (at least at first glance).
|2 days 23 hours ago||Always liked Kinsler||
Decent bat, can steal bases, and brings much-needed quality fielding to the Tigers.
|3 days 35 min ago||I looked up the rules||
At least the 2013-14 rules. I doubt it's changed.
On page FR-50: "Article 4. When timeouts are not exhausted, an official shall allow a charged timeout when requested by any player or head coach when the ball is dead."
|3 days 1 hour ago||If the rumored argument||
If the rumored argument between Nussmeier and Hoke is true, I wonder if the Morris situation had something to do with it.

...when Utah took that punt to the house. These are basic things any competent staff should be able to handle at any level of organized football and certainly at a major college program. There's a pattern here, and it doesn't look good for the staff.
|3 days 2 hours ago||I have zero confidence in Brandon||
Right now, based on what I've seen, I have no confidence that Brandon will fire Hoke before the season ends. I would like to be wrong about this, but my first impression is that Brandon will try to spin this and keep Hoke. Hoke is Brandon's guy, and Brandon will try to prop him up.
|3 days 13 hours ago||Didn't know that||
If true, then wow.
|3 days 14 hours ago||You may be right||
But with Brandon as the AD, who knows?
|3 days 16 hours ago||I'd be surprised if Hoke resigned||
Unless it was something that turned out to be a forced resignation. Hoke won't go unless he's shown the door. This is his dream job - he won't leave it voluntarily if he thinks he has any chance of holding on to it.
|3 days 18 hours ago||My mom and I went||
to the tasting room on Leelanau Peninsula and bought about 8 bottles between the two of us. I've still got two more that I'm saving for special occasions (particularly the port).
|3 days 18 hours ago||Just finished off some wine||
I had a couple of small glasses' worth left in a bottle of Leelanau Cellars Baco Noir. I think I'll switch over to the aquavit that a friend brought me back from Sweden.
|3 days 22 hours ago||All work and no play||
Makes Jack a dull boy.
|3 days 22 hours ago||I don't see that happening.||
At the very least, Hoke will be allowed to finish this season.
|4 days 1 hour ago||Frankly||
I didn't know until recently that Brandon was a Republican. However I may feel about his political sympathies, it's Brandon's acts as AD that inform my opinion about him.

...is there a York on the team?

I don't know about greatest experience, but I like their sandwiches. They're on South University just west of Washtenaw.

On my computer here in Washington.

And I'm not saying that this is unusual. It just seems a bit odd to me that the institution would go through with the visit if the recruit has already committed to another program and hasn't given any indication that has changed. Unless that's been done privately.
I'm not saying he's wrong to do it.
|5 days 1 hour ago||+1||
for the British history references.
|5 days 1 hour ago||If true||
If that's true - and maybe I don't understand the finer aspects of recruiting - why would he go on an official visit to NC State?
|6 days 21 hours ago||For what it's worth||
I think Hoke should go with Gardner unless, as others have said, he's hurt. Perhaps Nussmeier can call plays that make more use of Gardner's running ability and that mitigate the difficulties he's had passing. We've seen Gardner play poorly, but we've also seen what he can do if he plays well. There's too many unknowns with Morris right now. Circumstances may make going with Morris a better choice in subsequent games. But I think we're not at that point quite yet.

That said, I think fans would need to calibrate their expectations for Michigan even after a possible Miles hiring. It's easy to look to one person as an instant program savior, but if the problem is systemic, even a very good coach will need time and support to fix that.
|1 week 3 days ago||If I were a betting man||
I'd bet against Michigan every game this season. I don't see how I wouldn't come out ahead. Almost seems like money in the bank.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||This reminds me||
So a year or two ago (can't remember exactly what year), when the Daily and the State News did their dueling columns thing on the Friday before the U-M/MSU game, the MSU guy made some kind of crack about how the women who attend U-M are ugly (not in those exact words, but that was the gist of it).
Now, I get that the idea of dueling columns is to trade barbs in good fun, but something like what that guy wrote is 1) completely unoriginal and 2) sexist. But hey, what can one expect?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||It's a BS term||
I know of many MSU fans (including my older brother) who didn't attend MSU. Is there any school that has a fan base that has only people who attended the school?
