“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”

He isn't going anywhere this season. Just accept that this is who we are this year. Hoke can go at the end of the year.

Seth, you mentioned that the block rates decreased too, but didn't back it up with data. So I don't believe you! /s. But do you have any data on that, or where would a good place be to look.
Also. It would have been nice to go into why you can't jump the shield on the spread punt. As long as you don't use anyones leverage (which is illegal) to clear it, I don't see why you couldn't just jump over. I also think it is a BS rule, because you could get a guy like Funchess to ran up to the shield and jump straight vertically to block it, but the shield members could step forward and go under your legs to take you out causing what looks like a "shooting the shield" violation. I actually think this happened to Frank Clark on his penalty earlier this season.
I think the Shield could be defended more easily if the rules aloud for it, but what would be more fun than big returns and blocks huh? Oh yeah fair catches. Stupid NCAA.

Why do people care that we offered a random sophomore in HS who may or may not ever play for Michigan in 4-6 years after a RS and waiting his turn to crack the depth chart?
MOAR CONTENT!! Woooo!

Let me try and do better.
"Funchess seems like a guy you can just throw the ball up to at times. Does not having that option change the way you prepare your QB's?
or, OR. Better yet. Nothing would have been nice.
|4 weeks 6 days ago||Re: Noon games||
I was caught a bit off guard during a presser before the first game of the season. I think the question was posed to Brady about how different (and possibly difficult) it may be to go through game day preperations for such an early (Noon!) game.
I was even blown away that Brady answered this question genuinely! Almost to agree with the reporter that it was an early game. SMH coach. You're getting soft!

Y'all come up with a way the offense can score 0.7 points and two things will happen. I will believe Ed Feng's prediction, and the Lions with find a way to lose by that much!

I'm not trying to paint the comment with this narrative. It is just the only place people could vigorously attack players who just finished an away game would be on social media.
Personally I think Hoke has a little G.W. Bush in him. Where he says really dumb shit he doesn't entirely mean to come out the way he says it. Not a PR pro that guy. So then he goes into these Fort S. caccoons. I have no data to back me up outside the fact that I think Hoke is a good guy, and he wouldn't intentionally want to hurt or chase away his fan base. I think he is just really bad at not doing that.
I think the fickle comment was the same way. Some people suck at getting their point across (I am the worst person I know at this, and am probably just sympathetic towards him).
|5 weeks 15 hours ago||Been thinking of this for a while.||
and this seems like a good place. Thread Jack Time!!
Screw this bowl projections nonsense. Let's talk fan base bowl polls! Who would you like to play in a bowl this year?
Here me out on this. I wanna play Duke. Maybe some of the basketball hate would boil over onto the football field. And Duke actually has looked like they play football okay for the past 2 seasons. And lets be honest. If the Big Ten is going to win any bowls this year, it would be over the ACC.
|5 weeks 16 hours ago||Great read||
Great job OP. And god those awful OSU jerseys. Yuck.
And I am in a similar boat as you. But a wildly different one as well. The Notre Dame game definitely changed me somehow. I just don't know how. Just like how I can't understand the Notre Dame game. But that is a different topic.
I am kind of reverting back to my younger fan days outlook. Where I will take a win over anyone, anywhere, and anyway, and just be happy with it. So what if we are supposed to beat Utah this week, or at Rutgers, or vs. PSU under the lights. If it is a last second field goal or Manngingham over the middle. And of course if it is a blow out. I will be happy. I will see Muppets and (sorry Dave Brandon) fireworks.
A loss will probably suck. But I am not going to care. There will be a game next week until the season is over and there isn't a game next week. Hoke will stay or go. The fan base will have optimism or dread. But I am just going to be entertained by what is here and now. Be a good little sheeple fan, and take the season one week at at time.
Who knows. Maybe we will even win this weekend.

I agree. I used to really enjoy the pressers. I just can't read them anymore. And this is not a shot at Adam (thanks for your hard work), it is just that the coaches mumble coach speak over and over.
I'll comb them over for MGoQuestions, but idk. I can't take anything this coaching staff says seriously anymore.

I agree 100%. It seemed his statement was aimed at people taking shots at DG and others on social media. It is pretty clear Brady Hoke is not the best guy at getting his point across thru the media. And honestly, coaches and players should stop caring about what people say on social media, because it is only getting worse and worse, but for whatever reason Hoke wanted to comment on it and it back fired.
He wants the fans to support his players. What is wrong with that?

And no jumping off cliffs or nothing. But just not all excited about the weekend like I usually am. Haven't even been able to read the UFRs yet. Just can't this week.

Not sure where you're from, but if you are close to the downriver area, B. Boomers in Allen Park has an awesome Chicago Deep Dish Pie. It is actually a bar, and not a pizza joint. But so damn good.

Guys. I just can't. Last weeks game is still bumming me out. I have had a cold all week. Tomorrow will be my 13th straight day of work, and I will probably be working Sunday as well.

Alright. I was hoping that is where you were going with it. Just needed to make sure. But that 8 FGs thing is definitely an odd way to come up with what looks like a normal score. So..maybe that is where the mind was.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Not sure if serious....||
8 FGs, or 3 TDS and a FG....?

Also, does that net return average include the kick 6? Because thay play can scew some return rankings right there.
