- Funchess TE--> WR after 2 years
- DG QB--> WR for a year--> back to QB
- The OL G<-->C<-->G<-->C<-->Tackle??<-->Tackle OVER? disaster.
- Jake Ryan outside --> inside.... seems to be working OK to well at this point, I guess
- Peppers <--> Countess Nickle/Boundry snafu to start this year.

Everything we've been told is wrong.
There *is* money in social work. Hoke is apparently the best godammed social worker in history. 2-3 MM/yr is a hell of a lot more than the 25k most SWers get. Hell, he's probably single handedly increasing the quoted avg salary for the profession. take Hoke out of the equation and most SWers probably get 5500/year.
|1 hour 52 min ago||again, you're giving too much||
again, you're giving too much credit to 16 and 17 year olds. They don't put 2+2 together in this way- they look for, at most, 1 degree of separation from what immediately affects themselves. In a recruits eyes, the AD at a university is like 3-4 degrees of separation from them- which may as well be the grand canyon to a 16 y/o.
At this point, if a recruit is worried about the AD getting shit canned- well hell I'd love that. I'd rather have them being distracted by an AD issue- distracted from the awful state of the actual football team and the numnuts disfunction of the offense they will be playing in which can't get a single OL they recruited to be good at all, can't get 5* QBs to play decently, can't get 10 men on the field on STs and can't get the offense to sniff the Red Zone in 2 consecutive BCS games.
|3 hours 4 min ago||Completely agree. 99% of||
99% of people just think it's a bad idea and don't say why. Or they think it won't do anything. Ok fine- don't contribute.
At best, a couple have said it would affect recruiting, which I highly doubt. He's the AD. Not the head coach of a specific sport. I doubt any recruit knows who the AD is and if so, it's only b/c he gave a brief presentation/talk to some recruits who happen to be around when he is in the bldg. 10mins later, they forget his name - just that's he's the director of athletics.
People think it would affect the ability to get another AD. Well, guess what. Don't fuck shit up like this and you'll be OK. Don't alienate 75% of the students, alums, fans and supporters of the program by treating this football program and AD as a whole like souless corporate entity designed to just pull money from our pockets at every turn.
It's not a statement against Hoke directly, nor the students-athletes in any way, shape or form.
The message should be directed to the Regents. Hell, I'd even suggest they do it on a Thursday/Friday BEFORE a football game, not during. Fly right over campus in the late AM:

What geniuses the UM AD has in it's offices. Think about it: perhaps the best way to synergize their marketing strategy in a dynamic outside the box kind of paradigm:
Think about it... you know? as in... the offense scores ZERO with Hoke, Hoke rhymes with Coke?! MARKETING!

|2 days 3 hours ago||I feel like the Funchess||
I feel like the Funchess thing is the same problem this staff has had and continues to bite them in the ass. The kid looked like a hell of a WR from day 1, and they turned him into a bad-to-fair-to-good TE and after 2 full years finally put him at WR. Imagine if they had him at WR for those 2 years and how polished he'd be now. Probably wouldn't have one-handed that slant DG threw that led to the INT vs Utah.
So we have
This staff clearly makes questionable personnel decisions that affect the players and the team.
I can't get behind benching a guy whom has demonstrated the ability to play well at this level for a guy that at this point has shown absolutely no glimmer that he can sustain a drive, let alone several of them.

No matter who we get, be it Miles, Harbaugh, other Harbaugh, or the ghost of FH Yost, I'm not climbing any fucking bandwagons. I'm not gonna tip them over, but I'm not gonna be sold on them either.
Just STFU and show me the wins. Get the team to be competant and get the ficking wins.

50% higher than Hagerup you say? That's impressive on multiple fronts.

1) When can we expect the 1st Profiles in Courage (Cronyism?)? There are only 2 sources of hope: 1 the (0-0) conference record (which isn't much- we're the fucking Cubs now), and 2) PiC from Brian
2) After all the RR shit in contrast to the way everyone slobbered on Hoke at the beginning, I don't want to hear the "program insiders" say a fucking word. Go out and get the best guy. Period. Where are all the program alums and jagoff bluebloods that thought Hoke was gods gift to M? Awfully fucking quiet now- and you should stay that way.
3) Get the guy from TAMU. If they even had a chance to pull Bo from A2 back in 1982, then I say we have a great chance to get him. Dude walked into Texas and handed the Longhorns their fucking lunch, walked into the SEC and beat Bama and played with that conference for 2-3 years, and they can get young guys (esp QBs) to play well.
Get it the fuck done, Brandon. Or someone get Brandon done.

2 things come to mind:
1) well, the CBs scored as many TDs in the ND games as the offense
2) hindisght is always 20/20, eh coach? I mean, I'm glad they are willing to make a change, but, much like the OL last year, I wish these coaches would be able to avoid mistakes like these by knowing their personnel and how they fit into the scheme. If countess is such a good nickle, play him there. either way (at nickle or boundry) peppers will have a learning curve.

they were the best team I've ever seen, except for maybe the 95-97 M teams (who aren't in the bracket- a big oversight IMO) and the Maine 91-93 teams. Maybe the Dryden Cornell teams, but I never saw them play myself.
The 85 RPI team had several NHLers including Darren Puppa (G), John Carter (RW) and eventual HOFer Adam Oates. That team was dominant.
