also, for what it's worth, it's not fucking winter yet either, smart ass.
|3 days 19 min ago||I mean, that stretch last||
I mean, that stretch last year of Akron, @UCONN, Minn, @PSU was brutal. Tackle over, 27 for 27, just not getting a simple plan in place and stick with it for a young OL. The cracks started showing then, but the DG98 spackle wasn't empty yet.
After the ND game, Hoke was all but lost to me. He had a shot, but it was clear after the Utah game this the problems were systemic, not isolated.

wouldn't that be Babcock?

in the last 15-16 years, they must have done 4-5 reno's of Yost and spend close to 50M. Pretty crazy.

b/c he can empathise with the feelings of rage whereby the only seemingly logical action in the heat of the moment is to the knock that fucker out.
I can also empathise- I've played in adult hardball leagues for over a decade (mostly in A2) and have experienced the exact same feelings in the exact same context- high school/early college kids who payed in the old mans league would get up a a dozen runs, then keep stealing bases, including home. Our pitcher goes up and in on them, and they get all offended. Benches clear, etc.
As Brian said, this doesn't attempt to equate the actions of Clark with this, just that in the heat of the moment, as mentioned you can go to a place one wouldn't normally think you could go.

I'm not good with sayings, but I think some said this once: knowing a lot is knowledge, but knowing what you don't know is wisdom. Clearly schlissel has both and to be honest, it's refreshing to hear someone in such a leadership

they did that years ago, didn't you hear? they can only spend 20 hrs a week.
|1 week 1 day ago||I agree that theoretically,||
I agree that theoretically, it might be feasible to create an athletics major- in fact, they did. it's called Kinesiology. I believe they also offer sports medicine and training, and sports marketing. They also have athletic administration (my sister alledgedly earned the 1st PhD in athletic Admin from MIchigan). I don't see how a major in a particular sport would be necessary, unless coaching would require it, or if the NFL/NBA or other pro leagues began demanding it.
And that really leads to the bigger point that Brian misses, and other have only touched on tangentially: majors and degrees are created b/c there is a demand from industry/business. No one invents a major and then the jobs are created to then provide all these Widget-majors a job. It's actually just the opposite. The perfect example is modern manufacturing/engineering technitions. 30+ years ago there were engineers (project managers, designers, etc) and then the operators/mechanics/technitions that were replaced by robots (think auto industry, if you wish). Well, sure that removed jobs of the 4-6 people who installed a windshild on to a car and sealed it on the production line. But the robotics also CREATED jobs for people who have more technical training in how the mechanical and electrical and controll systems of the ROBOTS operate. There is a NEED now in industry for people who can program, trouble shoot and maintain the robotics (their hydrolics, pneumatics, electrical and controll systems). As a result, colleges are developing 2 and 4 year degrees, not really in engineering, not technitions either, but reather somewhere in between. The industry changed creating a gap in the talent pool and academia reacted to the demand for some type of new skill set that businesses needed to have in people.
If no one outside of the NCAA is demanding a set of skills that a graduate of said program would be garunteed to have upon completion, then there is no point in colleges creating that degree.

I support Hoke because I bet UM will be considerably better next year with a different QB running the offense, a couple of solid running backs, a better O-line
Were you alive for the MInnesota game?

the other point is, his contract is up after 2015- so he's the ultimate lame duck. recruiting would nose dive hard unless you extend him.
|1 week 2 days ago||I would normally agree with||
I would normally agree with you, but at this point, there are like 5 coaches I'd rather NOT have instead of Hoke:
Ron Zook, John L smith, Lane Kiffin, Lou Holtz, and IDK I'm sure there's another.
note, that Brian Kelly, Jim Tressel and many many others are intentionally excluded from that list.

LOL, I was gonna say- if we are going with no names, then Brady Hoke is at the top of the list.
Talk about under the radar candidate. The only problem is, he's technically coaching a power 5 conf. team, tho you could have fooled me.

you don't happen to coach the SF 49ers right now do you?

I'm not sure it's just about looking at academic records, but interviewing candidates to ensure that they can work with POTUMs ideas about how the AD should connect with the rest of the U and what kind of relationship the cadidates think an AD should have with the academic units of the university.
IOW, he's going to talk to candidates and ask, "I envision the AD doing A, B and C to work with the rest of the U, how do you think that can be accomplished?"
and their answers will determine if they are the right candidate.
