At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”

Winning is a hell of a lot easier when your best recruits aren't wondering if their prospective head coach's job is in jeopardy.
Which, in the case of Hoke, it is not. We know this be irrefutably true.
Although one might get the idea that it is when one sees speculative user-generated posts on fan sites masquerading as serious discourse. Wins are not the sole criteria for success in college football, especially when you are in the third-year of a program reset.
Seriously, we need to stop doing this before we turn into Notre Dame.

I was recently in Chicagotown and I spoke with our Dear Friend and can report that rumors of his demise are greatly exaggerated. Here he is explaining to Miguel Cabrera why Mike Trout is the real MVP

I think turnovers are killer for any football team. You don't have to be the one Brady Hoke to understand that.

Getting Dave Brandon wrong is fast becoming your legacy. You continually overstate or misrepresent Brandon's influence on the changing superstructure of collegiate athletics, and fail to recognize that his responsibility (and really, the only thing he can tangibly direct) is to ensure Michigan's continued success within that environment. In this regard we could not ask for a better athletic director in this current context.

Woodson gives some very candid remarks about his post-football life. Good article. Thanks for sharing #GoBlue #freep

This costs a lot of money.
Ohio sent their band to Austin thanks to a massive private donation. So it's not feasible for the Athletic Department.
So we are you so mad at Dave Brandon? The band will be at Notre Dame and Columbus. Get back on the meds.

This is a pointless debate. Rich Rod was fired, there was no lame duck period.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||Completely agree||
It is almost certain that as a recruiter Carr sold elite prospects such as Ryan Mallett and Justin Boren on Michigan being a vehicle for them to realize their NFL ambitions. They were signing up for a pro-style program, one which was dismantled with the hiring of Rodriguez and the implementation of the spread offense. This is not what those kids signed up for-- so why is such an unforgivable crime that Carr would not impede their departure?
And as I recall, no one transferred before January 2nd, when Carr officially stepped down and thereby relinquished the authority to sign transfer papers.
So his sin in this matter is... giving reasonable career advice?
One further note: can we not invoke Bo? Bo is dead, and what a worthless exercise it is to assert how he would have responded to the transition (besides, we all know if Bo were alive Miles would have ended up the coach after Bo forced he and Carr to reconcile).
Lest we forget, Bo and Lloyd had a decades-spanning working relationship which evolved into a deep, personal friendship. To speculate on their contrasting office-politics is really reckless, and probably offensive to each man.

The expectation is to win the Big Ten Championship.
If we fail, if we don't do that, then we need to get it right.
We need to reload. We need to work harder. We need to compete harder. We need to get after it with a sense of urgency.
