We lose by a polite margin tomorrow (10 to 20). We all get in a frenzy. Nothing happens by Tuesday except us all checking MGoBlog every ten minutes to see if Hoke has been fired/Harbaugh has been hired.

He could say he's resigning effective however many days from now.
|1 day 6 hours ago||Nope, Harbaugh. Reported by||
Nope, Harbaugh. Reported by JUB and confirmed by Sam Webb. Therefore, fact.
|1 day 10 hours ago||Anyone else hear about the||
Anyone else hear about the 450-pound, 16-point buck that Harbaugh got last weekend? Broke Dean Coffman's 50-year-old record. Funniest thing is he didn't even use a weapon, he just yelled at it to "get the hell over here" and it died of intimidation.

I once saw Harbaugh scissor kick Angela Lansberry.

Have to believe that Walton, Spike, LeVert, and Irvin will all be out there at the end of games this season. Irivin's gonna have to stay in the weight room and get used to guarding fours. Novak did it.
|4 days 38 min ago||Great win. Clearly still||
Great win. Clearly still getting comfortable on offense, guys are still getting to know one another. Gone is the creativity from last year--the backdoor cuts, the alleyoops, the I'm-dunking-this-ball-on-this-drive-no-matter-what. I think those things will come with some more time. Loved the Caris drive-and-kick call to Irvin at the end.
In particular, I want to see Caris, Irvin, and some of the freshmen going hard at the rim when a lane clears. Chatman pulled up and missed a 18-footer when there was nobody between him and the rim--you gotta make the decision right there that I'm dunking this ball dammit try and stop me.
That was a game that we won because we're winners. Awesome to see, especially after enduring a football team of losers for the past three months.

Aren't there a few young, innovative, charismatic coordinators in the NFL that we could look at if Harbaugh or Miles don't work out? I have to believe there are better options than some of the second-tier guys being thrown around.

When's the last football season we went unranked wire-to-wire?

That's a lot of five stars to have on your roster at once.
For comparison's sake, State has one five star in the last four classes (McDowell) and only 14 total four stars. We've had 42 four/five stars in that same period. Forty-two.
WE HAVE THREE TIMES AS MANY ELITE RECRUITS ON OUR ROSTER AS MSU.
|4 days 12 hours ago||We have an absurdly talented||
We have an absurdly talented roster, going by recruiting profiles alone. I would be curious to see how the number of four/five stars we have on our roster for next season compares to other programs nationally. I would guess we're in the top ten.
We have the talent and the resources to win ten games next year. It's just a matter of finding somebody to lead.

Most scholarship QBs in Big 5 conferences can come in, even as freshmen, and not completely shit the bed like Shane did against Minnesota or like Bellomy did against whoever he's ever played against. I'm talking just basic game management competence like not fumbling the snap, not throwing the ball directly into the chest of defenders, and making easy completions to wide open receivers. We've had such a weird voodoo situation surrounding QBs that it's hard to remember that under normal circumstances (i.e., not under Hoke's staff), a QB can come in and do okay right out of the gate.

Thought for sure this was another plea to be nice to Hoke, based on the thread title.

Funchess is the leader of that unit, and the leader's attitude and effort establish the culture for the others.
|4 days 12 hours ago||I have no problem losing||
I have no problem losing Funchess. I suspect his hype this year caused some of the younger guys to be deferential. Good luck in the pros and let the youngins take ownership over and pride in the receiving corps.

Please define "extraordinary" here. Like, literally, beyond ordinary? Like way different than what is to be expected? Okay, I can get on board with that.
Please explain what is difficult about the times. I know you don't mean difficult as in didn't have the full support of the entire fanbase when he took the job. I know you don't mean difficult as in doesn't have the best facilities and material support in college football. I know you don't mean difficult as in doesn't have top-level talent year after year. So, are we talking difficult like he is dying from self-inflicted wounds? Like he fucked up so bad that everyone wants him to take a hike? Difficult like he borrowed his dad's car, crashed it, and now is in the difficult situation of getting grounded and having his license taken away? Okay, I can get on board with that.

Getting a new coach will help recruiting. Any coach. There's always buzz and the promise of at least three or four years of program stability.
|5 days 16 hours ago||They're not doing anything||
They're not doing anything wrong! They're good kids, and they work their butts off in practice. They're all special and have all, at one point or another, had their best week of practice.

Just got up. Is Hoke still coach?

It would be a huge mistake for an NFL team to draft Funchess on the first two days. Maybe at all.

I imagine Mikey watching this shit game like all the rest of us fans and, after the last four possessions, just saying, "fuck that, I'm done."
I would've decommited a long time ago.

Was he waiting to see what happened on that Maryland drive before making the call?
