"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

hoke was the only guy who received an offer. the other guys didn't show enough interest in the job to warrant an offer.

You can't criticize DB for using the pimp hand that we all anointed him with. I thought he did a great job with divulging as much information about the search as he could. Obviously some parts of the hiring process should never be made public and we must respect that.
Plus, the last two minutes of the presser, where he was describing what it is to be michigan. That was some moving shit. This guy loves michigan just as much as Hoke.
|3 years 40 weeks ago||Why do you care to know so||
Why do you care to know so much about the behind-the-scenes hiring process? Brandon hired what he believed to be the best guy for Michigan and that's all that matters. When I get a job offer I don't care if I was their first or last choice, and neither should you. Even if he had Hoke at the top of the list the whole time, he needed to be sure that he was the right guy and thus evaluated other candidates as well. We will never know the full details of his search, and that's the way it should be.
Stop trying to stir up drama. Brandon did the best job he could as a first time AD. The program is in good hands. Worry about something else. Move on.

I just want to point out that just because the plane is flying from place-to-place doesn't necessarily mean DB is always in the plane. They could drop him off in one city while the pilot joyrides or drops other people off in other nearby cities and then picks him up on their way back to ann arbor.

I am just worried that the detroit media will have a field day with Miles. They'll agitate him until he says some crazy shit and then we'll become the coaching laughingstock of the league.

You might have convinced me if you only told us about the Les Miles part. But Bo Pelini to LSU at the same time? Seems far fetched.

Pete Carroll did the same thing when he was getting interest from NFL teams. He'd meet with NFL teams and gauge their interest, learn about the organizational structure of the teams, etc. But it was all for naught as he would return to his college team.

Relax. Gruden is a solid coach. A good motivator. And he knows how to identify NFL talent. These qualities give him a chance to be a good college recruiter. His assistants will be doing most of the recruiting, anyway, fwiw. Gruden will be called into the living room to close the deal.

Guys, I'm really scared.
It's during times like these that I wish DB would hold me and tell me its going to be ok. So much is riding on the next coach. We can't afford to have back-to-back failed coaching tenures. I don't want to see a decade of losing/mediocre seasons. This is Michigan. The greatest and most admired university in the world. We are great at everything, except football. We need to change that and it needs to happen soon. Please reassure me everything will be ok.

If JH says "no" to us. Can we hire an interim coach next year (e.g., Carr?) and just wait it out till a real candidate becomes available?
