FWIW I think you are dead on the money in all your predictions - that is exactly what I believe will happen as well, and in the order they occur.
And boy do I sure hope that happens. While it absolutely kills me to think that getting curbstomped by OSU would be somehow good for Michigan I am scared to fucking death that if we somehow win Hackett could be convinced by all the ex-players that Hoke is just about to turn things around and they give him another year.

No shopping for me but I do have an entire day of Christmas decorations to put up. Is it to early to start drinking?

I agree it won't be as bad as 51-3. I think it will be 45-3.

IMO there is only one logical reason Hoke has not been let go yet. The decision has not yet been made.

It would take 40 points for me to bet on Michigan. I think the final will be around 45-3 or so.

I 100% agree. I've got Miles as my pick IF Hoke gets fired.

Thank goodness for the Bears defense.
And, speaking as a Browns fan - really thank goodness we failed at getting Trestman and got "stuck" with Pettit instead.
|1 day 3 hours ago||LOL what does HE know?||
LOL what does HE know? According to just about everybody here Hoke has already been fired, Harbaugh is signed, sealed and delivered and now we're trying to figure out how many wins Jimbo will rack up year one.

So will this drive stall now or closer to the goal line?
Holy shit - an actual TD.
|1 day 4 hours ago||Fun fact! I was at the||
I was at the infamous 1980 Thanksgiving game when the Lions snatched defeat from the jaws of victory as only the Lions can. Up 17-3 with less than five minutes to go, with a 4th and inches from the Bears 40, with Billy Sims (a healthy, rookie Billy Sims I might add) in the backfield - the Lions punted and then never saw the ball again. Long drive TD Bears. Onside kick, recovered TD Bears. And then the Bears return the kickoff in OT for a TD.
|1 day 4 hours ago||The Bears DO have an awful||
The Bears DO have an awful secondary. Probably the worst in the league.
Which naturally means the Lions run the ball and then Stafford completely misses a wide open Calvin Johnson.

I think you're right on the Hoke involvement with the offensive gameplanning. I'll bet you that at some point in the not too distant future we're going read & hear that Hoke had a LOT more input on why the offense looks the way it does than we think today.
There's a constant that connects Al Borges & Doug Nussmeier offense's that going in - don't appear to be that similar yet in games look very much the same.

"Admit it, that was a hundred times more fun than any football game this season."
Absofuckingly right. I watched from the opening tip to the very last and all I could think (especially during the second half run) was "God it's nice to have a team that's well coached and GOOD." It was such good basketball from both teams.
With Beilein on the sidelines you know you're never out of a game because at worst, you've got a push with the other team's HC and in most games you're clearly at an advantadge. With Hoke it's exactly the opposite.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Growing pains. My guess is||
Growing pains. My guess is Beilein will have the team playing just fine by March. This happens.

Nor do I. The timing of the termination and hiring of Nuss seems far too well orchestrated for Hoke to pull off.
|2 days 19 hours ago||Guys settle down. There are||
Guys settle down. There are DOZENS of Ohio and Miami fans eager to see the end of this titanic struggle. Undisputed possession of fourth place in the MAC East is riding on it.

Third prize is YOU'RE FIRED!

That was you?
Oh man I've been pissing them off right afterwards by telling them to stop worrying. While Barrett did want to transfer he got turned down by admissions cause his grades and SAT scores were too low.

|3 days 2 hours ago||After the first game of the||
After the first game of the season this year, rookie Head Coach of the Cleveland Browns Mike Pettit was asked the question "how does it feel coach to know your team never quit, never gave up and almost won?" (The Browns were down 27-3 to the Steelers at half, came back to tie the game but lost on an end of game field goal 30-27). His answer sums up how I feel about this post:
"There's a term we use in the NFL to describe "almost winning". It's called LOSING."
I hate that we've sunk so fucking low that moral victories are something we're calling upon for inspiration now.
|3 days 3 hours ago||Sorry OP - that's nothing||
You want hate? I'll give you hate. Those fuckers tore down our banner
We won the game in 1974. The refs called a very obviously game winning field goal no good.

My guess would be from the $8.33/month he's paying in subscribtion fees.
|3 days 5 hours ago||I wish our team was so fired||
I wish our team was so fired up and intensely focused on beating OSU that Hoke had to issue such an edict to Michigan to not punch somebody.
All Hoke has to do remind them to not bring their camping gear onto the field and we're ok.
|3 days 5 hours ago||God that video clip makes me||
God that video clip makes me so sad. I was at that game and remember thinking that we fucking OWNED the future cause we had the best offensive mind in the game wearing our colors. Watching that play, and how utterly unstoppable it is, and then comparing to the dredge that Hoke thinks passes for offense literally makes me sick to my stomach.
|3 days 6 hours ago||I could not agree more with||
I could not agree more with that statement Ferris. Absolutely 100% correct.
|3 days 6 hours ago||One is very likely (but not||
One is very likely (but not by any means 100% unfortunately)
Two is a maybe. It's NOT a "done deal" like everybody here hopes it to be. That's my point - we've collectively gone all "he's coming...he's coming" and if he doesnt we can still get a damn good coach but it seems to me like the board convinces itself daily this is a sure thing and it's anything but. Everyone seems to think that in a conflict with the GM the Owner is going to side with the GM and run Jim out. What if he doesnt? What if the GM is let go instead? IMO it's easier to find competent GMs in the NFL than coaches as good as Harbaugh.
Look - I want the dude as much as anybody here. I KNOW he would turn us around immediately and restore the program. I'm just trying to pump the brakes a bit on the EXPECTATION he is coming.
|3 days 6 hours ago||I'm sorry but these Harbaugh||
I'm sorry but these Harbaugh threads remind me of this. It seems to me like we've gone "all in" on so many freaking assumptions:
1. That Hoke will be fired
2. That Harbaugh will leave the 49ers
3. That if Harbaugh leaves the 49ers he won't want to stay in the NFL (cause he's sure as Hell gonna have a bunch of offers from other teams)
|3 days 7 hours ago||I live in Northern Ohio and||
I live in Northern Ohio and have since 1987. The saddest part of the rivarly these days is that they really don't "hate" us anymore like they used to. They really don't. They PITY us and that is exponentially fucking worse let me tell you. I'm wearing my Michigan gear proudly and have my Michigan flag flying high in front of my house. In years past I'd get a lot of snide, sometimes profane, comments about my clothing choices. These days? Nothing. Just a sad smile and shaking of the head and usually a comment like "what the heck is wrong with you guys?"
Read the comments of people going to the shoe and it's totally different now too. When I was there it was a jungle and they hated every fiber of our being. Nowdays it's like we used to treat the idiot fans of teams like Purdue that would travel to the Big House to watch their squad get slaughtered. Anybody here get upset with a travelling Purdue fan lately? Didn't think so.
Nobody really hates anymore cause we've become Purdue. How much does that suck?
|4 days 1 hour ago||I swear to fucking God it||
I swear to fucking God it seems more and more each day that the ONLY people who give two shits about the record of the football team are the fans. Everybody else - players, ex-players, coaches, ex-coaches - seem to think wins and losses are just not that important in the grand scheme of things.
