Keeping Hoke on for the next 2 months really doesn't matter. What matters is 2 things:
1) Brandon gets shitcanned
2) Hoke is fired ASAP after the OSU game. His contract goes thru 2015- and you can't possibly expect to keep him around for a year without an extension. And you can't possibly extend him now or at the end of a 2-5 W season. He's gone by 12/1 either way.
Mattison might stay with John harbaugh coming in right?

but I just don't care. I only care about coaches who coach for Michigan

at this point I wish Hoke would fall asleep. At least that would explain the ineptness and lack of leadership.

this is typical fear of change/unknown psychology.
you know he's a terrible coach. you know he's lost the team. you know he's made bad personell decisions, and put shane in a bad spot from a healt perspective (so say the least).
get rid of him and move the fuck on with the search. we are staring at 2-10 or 3-9 and we have to show the team and '16 recruits that we're gonna do something to fucking fix it.

I agree. This is a rich guy saying he trusts another rich guy with the 300+ mill he effectively gave him. I really don't think Ross has any clue what the state of the program and 75-80% of the fan base is. He lives in a totally different world.

|6 days 2 hours ago||we need to run w/ fewer TEs||
we need to run w/ fewer TEs and more FBs. This will fix 2 things:
1) Take crappy TE off field. put slightly better at football FB on field. Offense now TE-proofed.
2) FB will tell Green after every playcall in the huddle just to follow him where ever he goes. Offense now Green-proofed.
IDK how the fuck we can QB-proof and/or OL-prof this bitch, so fuck-all
|6 days 2 hours ago||I agree, but it really leads||
I agree, but it really leads me to blame the coaches more. B/c for 2 years they had this kid trying to block DEs and LBers and clearly it wasn't working too well- in fact he's so bad that he can barely be botherd to block a CB now! WTF man, who thought THAT kid would be able to block DEs and LBs on a consistent basis? I would think he'd LOVE blocking those little dudes after being on the line for 2 eyars.
caveate: i think we're judging him on his worst play on a day that he was clearly banged up.

I think it should have stood for posterity. Clearly there were those in favor and those against and a decent discussion/debate ensued. Not sure why this had to get axed.

sorry, I've lost hoke. I mean hope.
|1 week 23 hours ago||Everything we've been told is||
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 week 23 hours 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.
|1 week 1 day 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!

Someone GET THIS DONE:
