I, too, am on my phone, so I will accept your written +1 and return the favor! +1 Mom!

I posted for the nugget about Sunday being a day they expect to solidify the oline and so others could listen to the interview if they're not in the listening area.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Wow||
Wow. Hands down one of the best, if not the best hype video I have seen. Really well done. I can only imagine the time that went into this.

I swear, if this guy loses a fumble this year, I'm gonna lose it. No excuses with the extra muscles and all.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||One and done||
The league needs to do something about all these "one and done" writers. Could you imagine what kind of team we would have if these guys stayed all four years?

I almost blow my wod everytime I CrossFit. Thankfully I don't.

Your avatar almost made me flick my monitor to try to get that little bugger off my monitor. Not sure if that is the point but it made me laugh.
|25 weeks 31 min ago||I thought the same thing||
I thought the same thing and was amazed they weren't reviewing it. I thought for sure that ref was running to the table to review it to see if Morgan touched the rim / ball. After seeing a replay, he wasn't even close.

John Beilein's reaction during and right after the shot is so great and true to his personality. The least excited excitement I have ever seen.

Way to fix the formatting.
Now let me go read your post

Aaron Andrews you say? I guess a bro-hug may have made him feel better but I think a hug from Erin Andrews would be much better.
|30 weeks 4 days ago||Levert almost||
Levert almost blew it late. Kept pressing too much late. Thank God Stauskas could bail him out! Still love Levert.

Another excuse to be drunk on whiskey more often! MOAR BIRTHDAYS!
|30 weeks 4 days ago||I thought he said||
I thought he said "I want this!" I want this!" but "I run this shit" is much better.
|30 weeks 4 days ago||Its my birthday!||
Its my birthday today and Michigan Basketball has not lost a game in the last three years the day before, the day of or the day after my birthday! GO BLUE!
AND I'M DRUNK ON WHISKEY AND ITS ONLY 8:30PM!
|32 weeks 22 hours ago||I think his point||
I think his point is going from an "unsuccessful season" to playing in the national championship game, or, at least making it to the College Football Playoff.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||BOO THIS MAN||
Not cool man!
|36 weeks 34 min ago||Its not just about number of wins||
Its not just about number of wins. I think Hoke and co. needs to post another winning record next season, say 8-4, 9-3, showing some progress to keep the haters at arms length.
There is a year for me that will be my "final evaluation" and that is 2016. This will give Hoke his first "real" recruiting class in their RS JR and SR years. This will give us the best insight into what the future of Michigan football will be under Hoke. Hoke's DNA will be throughout the entire roster and the experience will be there to boot. This would be Shane Morris RS JR or SR season. Michigan must be playing in the B1G Championship game that year.
Hoke needs to have Michigan playing in the B1G Championship game in 2015 or 2016.

|38 weeks 1 day ago||Your statement||
Your statement is implying that people believe he isn't working his ass off or that the team isn't playing their hearts out every week.
Everyone on this board agrees that this team and Hoke is working extremely hard this year but for whatever reason, it isn't working. Making a statement like that is pointing out the obvious, which Hoke gets nailed for week in and week out.
He can't win. I don't know why every coach doesn't take the pissed off Dantonio approach and just "one word answer" every question.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Amen.||
Amen. Well said, Magnus. Agree 100%.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Really?||
Really? 3 years as head coach, 2 years of elite level recruiting and improving defense every year and you're ready to fire him?
The offense has been the problem. We all know Hoke is a defensive coach. The defensive line is improving this year, an area Hoke wanders often.
We need changes on offense. Hoke is the man for the job.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Well said||
Well said. I agree with you. Brady Hoke is a good coach. The growing/transition pains suck but the prices aren't his fault.
Brian turned into a real blogger on this one and its too bad. Normally I agree with him.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Couldn't agree more||
Couldn't agree more. I made similar statements in my comment. The fans on this site are extremely fickle.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Agreed.||
Agreed. If I'm performing poorly at my job, my boss has to make a decision to terminate me or reduce my salary. Right? That isn't on Hoke.
Hoke is responsible for the product on the field and he has said that ad nasuem in press conferences.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Do you think||
Do you think it's smart of a head coach to say to his group of young men that have been working extremely hard all year long "Yeah, this team sucks. And I am to blame for some of that. So I understand why fans won't be showing up".
That's not a leader and not something a head will ever say. You have to be realistic here. I understand thats what we want to hear, but come on man. Be realistic about the politics of being a head coach and the players who have worked extremely hard.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Hoke is 100% right||
Hoke is 100% right. Fans are fickle. People are fickle. If by some miracle Michigan wins this Saturday, the boards would explode with a lot of very happy fans. A lot of the fans who were so pissed last Saturday, claiming they're done and will not watch another game but yet they will be elated and talking about how great this is. The exact definition of fickle.
You're attacking Hoke like he has something to do with the ticket prices. It's like getting mad at the director of a movie because of the ticket price at your local theater. You're mad at the product that you're paying for (rightfully so) and Brady Hoke has something to do with that. However, if you aren't fickle, then go to the game and show your loyalty, show your affection for your team.
You're bitching like the prices are Hoke's problem. Hoke's problem is the product on the field but its quite obvious this team is working extremely hard and the results just aren't there. Be mad about that but don't put the prices on him.
And fans are fickle. See the board on this site.
|39 weeks 18 hours ago||Every time||
Every time you put that awful shadow on pictures, a litter of kittens die. What is this, 1999? Amirite?
I am frustrated with Gardner but I don't want anyone else at QB right now. Unfortunately, I don't think the OL is helping evaluate his ability as a QB. To me, the biggest problem is the lack of ability to go through his progressions, which is probably caused by his lack of time in the pocket.
I don't think this is on Borges. His plays are getting guys open but Gardner can't find them in time.
|40 weeks 1 day ago||A Couple Questions||
A Couple Questions for SC:
1.) If you were Hoke, what would you do with Funk after the season?
2.) Do you think Al Borges has widdled his playbook down to nothing, due to the fact the OL can't block the simplest schemes at this point in the season? I'm afraid this is how we're becoming so predictable. Not because its Borges tendencies but because that is all he can do at this point.
I have been behind Borges this entire season because I have seen plays (like this one) where the play calling is right but one or two things have broken down and killed the play. It always seems that its the OL breaking down.
It seems that OL issues are killing everything Borges wants to do. They can't pass protect, they can't do basic run schemes, I don't know what else Al Borges could do. How much of this is on Al Borges from a coaching perspective? Do you think he spends much time with the OL?
The only time I have been down on Borges was in the Nebraska game, right after we get the muffed punt recovery and he calls two run plays for losses. That was so asinine. It appeared that he didn't want to run pass plays for fear of taking sacks and getting out of field goal range.
Great write up. I always enjoy reading what you have to say. Its really helpful to get another prospective, one that isn't so (ahem) negative.
