I honestly can't tell if this is supposed to be sarcastic.

The kids may not get it but Popeye Doyle sounds good to me.

Gotta love the experienced lineup we can put out there with Max playing well.

I'm usually gunshy about participating in posbangs but I've gotta get a taste of this one.
|7 weeks 19 hours ago||Well we are a corporation now||
Well we are a corporation now and, if you're going to fire somebody, do it on a Friday.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Soo..||
How's that angle of no media attention, local or otherwise, working out for you?
|7 weeks 3 days ago||It never seems to be great||
It never seems to be great timing for DB to receive criticism.
Oh and you mean a ceremony that the Athletic Department was getting an award at that he somehow made all about himself?
|7 weeks 3 days ago||The evidence that's been||
The evidence that's been presented would only be shaky at best to someone who has a significant stake arguing for the opposite side or just plain has their head in the sand. Not even Brandon himself tried to dispute the story once it went national so I'll just go with your head being in the sand.

The feeling is mutual. After reading your post I'm starting to think a lot less of our fanbase as well.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Nobody's saying he should be||
Nobody's saying he should be fired strictly for those email exchanges. Add it to the pile.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Yeah, there was nothing||
Yeah, there was nothing idiotic or asshole-ish about his comment. Keep those hatches battened down against the storm of evidence of Hoke's ineptitude and failure. I'm sure all will be okay in the end.

Like it or not, Morris will be competing for the starting QB spot next year and getting in-game experience this year helps him even if he struggles a lot right now. Do you think Devin played good enough today to not be benched (if we had a viable backup)? No one's throwing him under the bus, he stunk today (even given the drops). His turnovers were brutal. This season is lost, do you really care if we lose 35-11 vs. 35-3 or whatever? So yes, inserting Morris accomplishes something.

Spend money on coaches because they have performed and deserve it. Please dont give another mediocre MAC level coach a huge payday just because youre trying to benchmark to other top programs who are paying big for a successful coach.

Let's get all 11 in on this please!!!!

It's like looking at a mirror image!
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Um, does this coaching staff||
Um, does this coaching staff understand that QB sneaks should be used on 3rd or 4th and inches?? That was a very long yard if not longer. Dumb dumb dumb.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||If it was just one fan's||
If it was just one fan's point of view, that would be a terrible story to tell but, unfortunately, it represents at least somewhat of a significant portion of our fanbase, which, like it or not, is pretty unique. I would hope there are some fans who said they want UM to win and, in most years, I would assume 100% of UM fans want UM to win. That's just not the case right now.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Why? Do you think there||
Why? Do you think there aren't fans that feel that way?
|10 weeks 2 days ago||This letter is garbage. Please explain how this is||
This letter is garbage. Please explain how this is VERY well written aside from the fact that it is, uh, in coherent English? I guess with our head coach, that constitutes a win nowadays.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Wrong. He said it told him something that shane||
Wrong. He said it told him something that shane waved his hands and didnt want to come out of the game that he was good to keep going. This was right after the hit happened when he or someone on his staff knew or should have known about the blow to the head and the wooziness after. The medical staff could not have had a chance to clear him since hoke left him in the game. Explain that narrative.
|10 weeks 5 days ago||But how well can you yell||
But how well can you yell "let's go" and point with one hand and, if called upon, potentially two hands?
|10 weeks 5 days ago||I was at a party tonight with a bunch of people||
I was at a party tonight with a bunch of people who I know used to live and die by Michigan games. The game was on and competitive but almost no one was really into it, just utter malaise. Everyone just going about their business catching up with friends, chilling at the bar, etc. Hoke has broken us.
|10 weeks 6 days ago||Unfortunately, that's not||
Unfortunately, that's not luck. Just solid QB play. Must be nice.

I would like that thread a lot more. And coke zero with lemon.

|11 weeks 4 days ago||Oh I completely agree with||
Oh I completely agree with you but leaving in a player despite ankle injury/ineffectiveness can be chalked up to a coach's decision which, no matter how dumb, there can be some benefit-of-the-doubt given (kind of like the business judgment rule in corporate law that says boards of directors have lots of leeway to make decisions for their companies no matter how idiotic they may be perceived, unless they breach some fiduciary duty to the shareholders).
In this case, where there can be absolutely no benefit-of-the-doubt given is with a possible head injury, given the importance of this issue. Shane gets hit in the head and gets up wobbly to the point he can't stand by himself (even if it ends up being due to his ankle), he goes out.
