|3 weeks 2 days ago||According to||
According to this:
Hoke is the 7th highest paid coach in ncaa football at 4.3M and Saban is highest at 7.3M. Top nfl coach makes 8M. That's 3M difference. With 115,000 fans, that's $26 dollars a season for the best coach in football. That's a couple of bucks a game. I would easily pay $26 dollars a year extra to have a team with top-notch coaches that win games. The idea that we can't or shouldn't pay top dollar for a badass coach is rediculous. Why would we want or accept anything less than the best when we can get someone who wins?

I'd say that a win today would be great for Hoke in the job department. Maybe not for keeping his job at michigan, but definitely for helping him get his next job.

On October 25th, 2014, Brady Hoke gave one of the best post game press conference speeches of all time when his Michigan Wolverines lost to the Michigan state Spartans, dropping their record to 3-5.
“ Well, I’ll start off by saying this: do not blame that game on the defense, OK? I don’t care who you play — whether it’s a high school team, a junior college team, a college team — much less a Big ten team. When you turn the ball over five times — four interceptions, one for a touchdown, three others in field position to set up touchdowns — you ain’t going to beat anybody I just talked about. Anybody. All right? And that was a disgraceful performance in my opinion. We threw that game. We gave it away by doing that. We gave them the friggin’ game. In my opinion, that sucked. Ah. You know? You can’t turn the ball over five times like that. Holy crap! I don’t know who the hell we think we are when we do something like that. Unbelievable. Five turnovers. One of them for — We’ve thrown four interceptions for touchdowns this year. That might be an NCAA record! And we’ve still got six games left, so there’s no telling how many we’ll have. That’s pitiful! I mean, it’s absolutely pitiful to perform like that. Pitiful! ”
At the end of the press conference Brady responded to a question from a reporter asking about the Wolverines' chances for recruiting. Coach Brady replied in a rememerable, high pitched sounding voice with:
“ What’s that? Ah — Recruiting? Don’t talk about — recruiting? You kidding me? Recruiting? I just hope we can win a game! Another game.

Oh Chryst, not another coaching candidate.

It's about time. This team has struggled with leadership since the rich rod years, I don't care who it is, it's great to see people step up and lead. Hopefully this week was a turning point for this team.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Clearly they heard the||
Clearly they heard the message about playing people with injuries and decided not to play Morris. I doubt espn heard anything from this coaching staff about the status of Morris. They flat out refuse to talk about injuries every time the question is asked. Whoever they heard that from clearly did not know whether Shane would or would not play.

But, Brandon wasn't there. Very telling.

His pressers are a waste of time. Why take questions if you're not going to answer any. I feel like you need to win a lot to be in a position where you can give the big FU to the media and it's okay with the fans.

Tom Brady has amazing leadership qualities. He'd be a great head coach. When he clapped, Michigan would win.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||I heard that Bill Belichick||
I heard that Bill Belichick hasn't said that he isn't interested in the Michigan job. Until that happens let's keep him on the short list.

He's also one of 32 owners paying Rodger Goodell $44+ million/year for his services.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||Come on Hoke. Admit that it||
Come on Hoke. Admit that it was a bad idea to put him in and stop making excuses. It was a bad idea, doesn't matter if you didn't know, it was a bad idea. You saved a timeout, but it was the wrong thing to do. Be a leader and show some accountablitity for your actions. Maybe the players will learn from that more than anything else.

Schiano should definitely be on the list. For those who think he's an asshole and don't want an asshole coach, I remind you that Bo was an asshole. There's a reason he's known for the phrase those who stay will be champions, he was a tough coach. I don't want a nice guy coach. I want someone who wins.

Sobering and depressing. Thanks a lot.

If Hoke knows he's in over his head, the true michigan man would step aside and save the school the pain of firing their coach.

I'm focused on the fire Goodell campaign. I'd love to see Dave Brandon become NFL commissioner ASAP.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||5 undefeated teams in fbs? I||
5 undefeated teams in fbs? I don't know that it's ever happened. Not in recent memory for sure. The chances of 3 undefeated teams is low.
|9 weeks 5 days ago||The only team that probably||
The only team that probably has a playoff shot is Nebraska if they're undefeated at year end. All this bs about strength of conference is just that. In years past there was such an uproar in favor of teams like Boise st and others who played weak schedules being allowed into the single title game. No way they leave out an undefeated b1g team if there is one.

When it comes to the NFL, I think this list is way more important and clearly the big ten is doing just fine.

Shanna, they bought their tickets, they knew what they were getting into. I say, let 'em crash.

Forget the past for a week, move forward. It's only one game and if there's one silver lining it's that the big ten looks very poor this year. So maybe we are bad vs national competition, but we're not playing for the playoff. I think if the team can figure out how to win on the road, that would be a huge step forward this year. Beat OSU in the shoe, I'll be happy.
