|1 day 22 hours ago||I'm sure every college||
I'm sure every college football player would laugh at the idea that they haven't learned a bajillion things about football since matriculating. If it doesn't make a difference in terms of their on-field productivity, who cares, really? I'm sure James Ross has learned a ton about technique and play diagnosis in the past year and would dismiss anyone who said otherwise. But he was the same player on the field last season as he was in 2012, so why should a fan care?

I think it's totally reasonable to question Hoke's player development. Not sure why you're so indignant. To play along, though, I'd argue that the only guys on your list that showed significant gains under Hoke's tutelage are (1) Heininger (whoo walk-on!), (2) Campbell (still not good), (3) Gallon, (4) Gibbons (eh...), (5) Funchess, (6) Henry, (7) Butt (Whoo, natural ability!), and (8) Glasgow (whoo walk-on!). Eight guys. Wow.
You cannot give Hoke credit for the "progress" of Omameh or Molk. Kovacs, Martin, Roh, and Van Bergen were what they were when he came in, and they played better as a unit in 2011, sure. You're really desperate for examples if you want to hold up Countess, Taylor, Washington, Black, Gardner, Gordon, Beyer, Lewan, Schofield, Ross, Bolden, and Chesson as the shining examples of Hoke's player development. These guys were/have been all in neutral for the past few years. Lewis only counts if we're weighing success on spring practices now. Not sure what Clark is.
Hoke has been a big disappointment the last couple of years. It's okay to admit it to yourself. It's not your fault.

He's been trolling the hell out of the fanbase for a solid year now. This takes it to level heretofore unseen. Awesome to watch!

I always thought playing professional bball in Europe would be the absolute best gig ever. No pressure. Get to travel and see new things. Make great money. And, lets face it, Europeans are just better at life.

It's funny to me how Whitlock's mid-season article that criticized Hoke, Lewan et al. was lambasted on this board at the time, but now the exact same criticisms are receiving virtually no disapproval.

Ridiculous. Let's just forget this happened and pretend like we got to the Elite 8 with positive momentum and quality play.

Yeah, there're a lot of college teams that could cry the same song.
I'd take that Michigan lineup over the 76ers or Milwaukee Bucks, plus points.

Just going to allow myself to imagine, for a minute, a world where 2014-15 Michigan basketball featured the following lineup:
PG - Trey Burke, SR
SG - Nik Stauskas, JR
SF - Caris LeVert, JR
PF - Glenn Robinson III, JR
C - Mitch McGary, JR
B - Derrick Walton, SO
B - Zak Irvin, SO
B - Jon Horford, SR
B - Spike Albrect, JR
B - Mark Donnal, FR

Yeah, I agree. His wide body and rebounding would put us over the top. We would have won this game by 40 if McGary were healthy.

Texas is shooting out of their minds from three and from the line. And their point guard pushes off with his off-arm every play. And we just kicked their asses.
