Let it go.
It's impolite to speak ill of the dead.

Of course it was. He'll go right after Urban Meyer the day he gets here.

Once a year Devin has a freak-out game where he just goes wild and looks like a Heisman candidate like in UTL II or 2013 Ohio State.
He has not really had a game like that this year. He's due.

I could never root for Michigan to lose against Ohio State. Ne matter the consequences. Never.
Well, OK, maybe if my son was the QB for Ohio State . . . except then he wouldn't be my son anymore. So never.

At work we have what we call the "Bobby Knight Axiom". It says you can be as big a dick as you want as long as you are producing at top level.
But if you stop producing and you are still a dick . . . god help you, you're going to be ridden out of town.

I'm not sure Indiana is comprised completely of humans. At least not on the coaching staff. Nailed the Big Ten thing though.

Where have I seen that face before?

Bert looks like Dantonio.

I'd rather have a highly successful coach from a lower division or lower-tier BCS school than Schiano. At one time, all these guys were successful lower-level guys:
- Jim Tressel
- Urban Meyer
- Nick Saban
- Les Miles
- Bo Schembechler

He's an ass and a mediocre coach. Brady Hoke is just a mediocre coach.

"We’ll have another press conference, I got a feeling, sometime here.”
He already knows.

What a way to start.

You've never met . . . um, never mind.

The Ohio State game that year was just as bad.

All these things were true last year too and it came down to a 2 point conversion.

Said every Michigan fan since 1935.

He rambles incoherently, but the dude would look totally BAD ASS with a black eye patch.
This needs to happen before the next presser.
Then we'll see who has the guts to ask him irrelevant questions.

And the gold pinky ring.
|1 day 18 hours ago||He's perfectly comfortable.||
He's perfectly comfortable. He intended to give no meaningful information at this time, and that's what he did.
|1 day 18 hours ago||This is exactly what will||
This is exactly what will happen, within a day or two of the Ohio State game.
Then there will be all kinds of statements about search commitees and processes and that there can be no meaningful comments until that all plays out. Meanwhile, they will have already interviewed, negotiated, and selected the next head coach by Christmas.
That's just how these things work.

He's the kind of guy that if he were a back-alley pimp, he would still refer to what he's selling as a "product". It's creepy.

I am from the corporate world and I still could not understand it without closely re-reading it. He used an awful lot of words to say very little. Not what we need in an AD.
Brandon was an ass, but at least he was clear about it.
Can't they have these CEO guys on the side somewhere as financial advisors without them actually trying to run the AD?
|1 day 19 hours ago||He's being polite. In the||
He's being polite.
In the corporate buzzword-speak world he's from, coupled with the academic double-speak world he's jumped into, he's practically screaming from the rooftops: "THIS GUY IS SO OUT OF HERE YOUR HEAD WILL SPIN AROUND IN CIRCLES WHEN HE LEAVES."
And this was before the Maryland loss.

Fuck the NFL.
I care about Michigan.
|1 day 22 hours ago||As we watch urban Meyer take||
As we watch urban Meyer take one on the chin with the loss of miller and then losing to Va tech then to just continue to get better and players progress with each game it really magnifies Hokes shortcomings
We don't like to give Meyer credit because he's at Ohio Stata, but what he and his staff did down there this year is phenomenal. You could never see Hoke and company doing that. They need everything to be perfect and they still struggle.
|1 day 22 hours ago||. . . perhaps we don't need||
. . . perhaps we don't need to get warm fuzzies from our coach. Hoke is great guy and a good mentor for young men. He's not the unforgiving, relentless, tough SOB you will often find at the head of a winner
This is true. There is a lot of revisionist history about what a great guy Bo was, because time does that. But in his prime, Bo was a prick. There were no warm and fuzzies with Bo. Yet the man was very successful and developed men of character for the future.
I worked with a guy that played for Bo. He said Bo was the meanest son of a bitch he ever met. Bo would grab facemasks and shove players. Stuff you can't do today. It was a different era.
But even today, an elite D1 coach can't just be your buddy. He needs some prick in him. Like Saban and Dantonio and Meyer have.
And Jim Harbaugh.

That's true. And it's one of the reasons he will be fired. But at least he recognized that his D was not prepared for the up tempo and called a judicious time out to address it. I don't blame him for that. It was the right thing to do given the situation.
