Yup. He graduated from there in 1994, and took over as Head Coach in 1999
Plus, for a while there, it seemed like there was quite a lot of tension between the two programs. This is just my Joe Schmoe opinion, but hiring Rico would be like hiring Narduzzi for football. Makes sense from a numbers standpoint, but past that, no way

I've read pretty much all of those threads, and I don't think I've seen anybody say (especially LastHoke) "Burke sucks".
It's been, KCP has had his minutes yanked around, he's not as bad as people think he is, and Burke isn't as great as people think he is.

Yup, Hoke turned Ball State around for sure.
2 winning seasons in 6 years, 0 Conference Championships. Pretty amazing

Trading Chauncey wasn't a bad move. It was what happened with the money afterwards which screwed the Pistons

Did you even read the OP? Trevor Thompson isn't a senior

If you're getting uptight over a recruits Twitter header changing, that might be a sign it's time to step back from following recruiting

Which is why I said it's a yes and no.
And no, I don't think it's unfeasible to expect a program of Michigan's stature to be undefeated going into November more times than not.
Yes the conference has expanded, and there more teams, but it's not like we've added Alabama and FSU. We're gonna be playing Maryland and Rutgers on a regular basis, plus a PSU team that has yet to experience the full severity of their scholarship losses. Michigan should be able to go 4-0 through October more often than not
|5 days 4 hours ago||I'm talking about Michigan||
I'm talking about Michigan football in general, not just under Hoke.
As for being in contention, I think it's yes and no. We might have been contending both years, but we never controlled our own destiny in November.
In 2011, by the time November rolled around we were tied with MSU, but they had the tiebreaker. So we were relying on Minny (2-6), Iowa (6-3), Indiana (1-9), or Northwestern (6-5) to do our dirty work for us.
Same with 2012. We were tied for first with Nebraska, but lost the tiebreaker. So we needed MSU (5-4), PSU (6-3), Minny (6-4), or Iowa (4-7) to do our dirty work.
|5 days 6 hours ago||Expecting Big Ten Titles||
Expecting Big Ten Titles every year is a stretch, but I don't think it's unreasonable to expect UM to be in contention for the title in November.
Which we've done, what? Maybe once or twice the past 5-6 years

Weinreb is still employed? I was so happy when he stopped writing at Grantland

Plus the UK Bball fanbase >>> UM Bball fanbase (in terms of size anyways)

Agreed. With how much flak people give the Fords with regard to the Lions, Karen Davidson/Tom Gores have managed to stay squeaky clean

That's extrapolating a bit much.
This isn't a history class, it's a reflection piece on a late-night host whose heyday was in the late-80's-90's. Reading can only take you so far, at a certain point if you weren't there, there's a natural barrier

Eh, I think someone in their early-20's would stop reading it because all of the big iconic stuff (taking over for Johnny Carson, moving networks, starting trends, etc. etc.) took place either before they were born, or while they were 1-3 years old

Just like the Bama game, they probably didn't cap the number of tickets you can buy. So scalpers/rich people probably bought them all, now there's no more left for Joe Schmoe

Did I just imagine our Sugar Bowl (win, I might add) then?

Nah. Winningest is Win%. That's why for UM football, we've bragged about having the most-wins and (up until this season anyways) being the winningest program as two separate things.
