Hoke is gone we can call them Ohio State again.
|1 week 2 days ago||I don't think it is that||
I don't think it is that mysterious at all. Hoke's staff couldn't develop players on offense.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Ohio is in the MAC. Ohio||
Ohio is in the MAC.
Ohio State (OSU) is in the B1G.
Brady Hoke is gone we can call them OSU again.

Hoke is gone now so can we call them Ohio State again?

It does seem odd that they have the flag of the army of northern virginia in the canton.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I'm just concerned because||
I'm just concerned because the old guard was petitioning for a 5th year with Hoke. I'm afraid anyone who isn't Harbaugh and to a lesser extent Miles will upset them.

No tl;dr so it is straight to comments section.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||He is a good #2 after||
He is a good #2 after Harbaugh. I'm concerned that he might get the RRod treatment from the program "insiders" though. If we can promise 100% support from the beginning and no tomfoolery from the tomfoolers then I'm sold. Sadly this has nothing nothing to do with Mullen as a coach but rather whether Michigan is ready to accept an outsider.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Of course he turned them||
Of course he turned them down. I'm pretty sure he left Wisconsin to get away from Barry Alvarez. Why would he jump ship to Wisconsin's biggest divisional rival (freedom trophy and all)? If Bielema ends up in the B1G it will be with Iowa.

But can our bagmen outspend theirs?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||The way his team played in||
The way his team played in 2007 I'd say he retired early.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||I think he would be like a||
I think he would be like a Pelini. Always beats the teams he should but not very good against other top teams.
If the entire Michigan fan base starts chanting Harbaugh... Harbaugh... Harbaugh... Harbaugh... it will be too loud to ignore.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||It has to be nice to||
It has to be nice to basically play every single game over the past 25 years except 3 within your conference footprint.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||In 2013 they played in||
In 2013 they played in Columbia MO. Technically I don't think Missouri is in the south but they are a conference opponent.
In 2006 they played OSU for the national championship in AZ. Again Technically Arizona isn't the south but it was a bowl game. Before that the last time they left the south (loosely defined to include Missouri and Arizona in this instance) was '91 when they played at Syracuse in a regular season non-conference match up.
In summation this home and home with CSU is a big deal.

I think you keep Les Miles as he contingency plan. Look hard for the perfect hire based on your criteria (age, style, past success, etc) but know that if it hits the fan you can always get Les Miles.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||If not Harbaugh then I lean||
If not Harbaugh then I lean Miles. We should have had him back in 2008. Better late than never I guess.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||We are talking about the||
We are talking about the other team that doesn't make the playoffs. In this case shouldn't the head to head winner of the two co champions be considered the Big XII champion for bowl selection?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Isn't this simply determined||
Isn't this simply determined by head to head record?
So Baylor, assuming they beat KSU, will be the champion as far as bowl selection goes.
Also, just add BYU and Boise St already and play a conference championship game.

Speight. Same age as Morris. Didn't miss his senior season because he re classified. Built like an artillery piece.

|3 weeks 2 days ago||Why do they put buyout drops||
Why do they put buyout drops on January 1? Why wouldn't you have language like at the end of the 2014 regular season in a coaches contract?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Well at the very least we||
Well at the very least we could always get Les Miles. He has made it pretty clear that he would take the job if Michigan offered. Something about never saying no to Michigan. He isn't my #1 choice but he is better IMO than Kill, Bielema, etc.

With MSU and OSU home games do you think we will top capacity next season?
|3 weeks 2 days ago||The "that" is resigning effective immediately|
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Seems complicated. We need a||
Seems complicated. We need a contract law expert to give analysis of your proposal. In this scenario I feel like Hoke still ends up with more than $2M either by countering the proposed accelerated buyout or suing. Messy either way.
Remember Hoke said that he wants to remain the head coach at Michigan. People will not act rationaly when losing their dream job.
So it remains the cleanest option to just pony up the $3M and get rid of him immediately. Nothing to sue about since his contract was honored. It is not like anybody can point to his record and say that he deserves another year. And the 50/56 returning on the depth chart is a weak argument at best. I could say that those 50 kids deserve better coaching.

If Hoke is retained Michigan Football will never be the same. Thank God for Wolverine Historian and his youtube channel.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I can't believe they would||
I can't believe they would waste money from the recruiting budget by sending out a staff that is in limbo. Unless they aren't going to fire Hoke...
|3 weeks 2 days ago||A cold $1M would trump my||
A cold $1M would trump my love of Michigan any day of the week. No way he voluntarily gives up any of that money. It would be better for Michigan to just honor his contract (i.e. pay the $3M) and get rid of him now. No negotiations for people to get hurt feelings over. No BS about an evaluation. Just fast and clean like a band-aid.

You may be right about Hoke. But how many other Athletic Departments are run by CEOs who have no experience in Athletics?

I can name one million reasons nothing happens until january 1, 2015
