Haha. I did the exact same thing. Decided to hold off on watching live. Just watched the "highlights." Man is that ever a misnomer.

Flying back to the states in a couple hours. Another Michigan win would be a great welcome home.

Player development and having a winning record are becoming more and more popular.

That basketball score Illinois game back in 2010 had Denard go out injured and Forcier finish it off. So while more than 4 touchdowns were probably thrown, they were split between two quarterbacks.

Take it from a Mormon. I can tell you the draw to go back to Utah and the west is very much real.

I've seen many families move out to Michigan from Utah to take promising jobs in the auto industry. They're lured out by the fact that the pay and prestige is far better than any job available to them in Utah.

You wanna know why Gary Andersen left Wisconsin? Because he's Mormon and from Utah. As a Mormon who grew up in Michigan, let me tell you that traditional Mormons from our west do not like it in this part of the country one bit. Aside from their discomfort toward the mountain-less landscape, they can't handle how small the Mormon community is. They prefer to socialize within a circle of their own faith, which in Madison is very very small. It creates an entirely new lifestyle for his family. If he has children still in school, then that to me is the nail in the coffin. I would expect that to be the number one issue. They didn't want their kids having to grow up in a community without greater opportunities for Mormon friends

Currently Hoke's coffin is more nails than wood. However, this is not one of those nails in my opinion.

We should retain Hoke because he didn't lose every single game. There's always next season though.

I disagree that we need someone who has been there and done that, it by that you mean they've already led a major program to championships.

I'd like to send a letter to Dave Brandon that just says "I suggest you find another team. No one will miss you"

Whatever Hoke's philosophy is, I want the furthest thing from it please.
|2 years 8 weeks ago||The points made in that||
The points made in that letter were hollow and entirely uncompelling, if not nonsense.
1. The mission and purpose of the boycott is to effect change in leadership of the athletic department and football team, not to disrespect, isolate or in any way harm the players. The purposes have been abundantly clear and unambiguous. This kind of "support our troops" argument distracts the issue and unfairly miscategorizes the purposes of the boycott. Saving feelings is impossible in life, the best you can do is know the true intent of your actions and be clear in communicating them. What others decide to feel is their choice. Arguing 'support our troops' is hollow, disingenuous or naive. I don't care which.
2. This point seems to be just a hollow echo of the first, support our troops. It adds the idea that in a time of turmoil and uncertainty, the best way to improve the situation and fix problems is to maintain status quo. Don't do anything to upset the team. Absurd and illogical, no point wasting breath on that argument.
3. Probably the weakest of the three, quite a feat. As leaders, innovators, inventors etc., we should put off taking actions or upsetting the balance or status quo, in favor of "trusting" and compliance. Name any innovator or inventor that found success in their endeavors because they eschewed upsetting the apple cart in favor of trusting the system and falling in line. Particularly within a clearly broken system, prioritizing 'trust' and obedience is the path to anything but leadership, innovation and invention.
I'm truly disappointed to see such a horrible argument from someone at an elite university.

Joey Galloway is an idiot, right? I don't know much about him, but did I pick up on that correctly?
He really just doesn't get it. It's not about Hoke needing to personally evaluate the health of the player. But correct if I'm wrong, doesn't it fall on the coach to be aware of what is happening to his players on the field and to get them off the field if their health and well-being is in question/jeopardy? It's just so fitting that accountability is such a popular term for Hoke to throw around.

Well now I feel way better. Hoke has done a fabulous job and Michigan is adequate.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||I find it completely||
I find it completely inexcusable that Hoke could be unaware of what is happening with his starting quarterback on the field. He's the only person in the stadium being paid millions of dollars to be aware of those kids. Especially those currently on the field, and especially a starting quarterback.

Hard to have a vertical passing game with an O line that can't protect, wide receivers that aren't getting much separation and a quarterback with accuracy issues. Just saying.
