To echo a bunch of others, the initial idea wasn't bad.
But then it got taken to the Dave Brandon-esque overkill extreme.
Execution is everything... just ask betamax, hd-dvd, and friendster.
|6 weeks 23 hours ago||Two words...||
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Seriously. We need to end||
We need to end this 2 month long charade.
Everyone knows it including Hoke.
This needs to be done YESTERDAY!
|19 weeks 6 days ago||"He thinks Coach Hoke will be back if he manages to beat OSU...||
"He thinks Coach Hoke will be back if he manages to beat OSU and finish 7-5."
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Yep, this sounds like the end...||
They tried to find a way to defend it but...
|24 weeks 6 days ago||It DOES serve a purpose though...||
I'm not here to play "woulda, coulda, shoulda" because it's not productive to us. The past is the past.
I DO think threads like these serve a purpose for the NEXT coaching hire to remind us that, hey, maybe it wasn't him who didn't succeed, maybe it was us who failed him.
Whoever the next coach is, we need to put them in a position to win. If he's a spread guy or an outsider, the "Michigan Man/Carr/Hoke" contingent needs to support them and put them in a position to win, not to split the fanbase and start the countdown clock the first season.
The reason RR's succeeding at Arizona, and didn't at UM, has nothing to do with talent or resources (because we have more of both), and has everything to do with trust and allowing the coach to focus on what they do best...coaching. Not politics or history and making sure he acts like the previous coach.

Hoke hates headsets because he hates listening to anyone else. Simple as that

Two more months of this, at the least...
|26 weeks 2 days ago||I just started dating someone...||
I just started dating someone new in the middle of the summer. Was very much looking forward to introducing her to Michigan football and making her a fan.
I now might wait until next season.
|26 weeks 4 days ago||Let's face it...||
Let's face it, Hoke is punting on 2014 season.
He's trying to prep Morris to save his hide in 2015, if he's still around.
I just worry about Morris coming in to this tire fire of an offense and having his confidence shattered.

But, but, but... Sugar Bowl
|27 weeks 2 days ago||I agree||
At this point, I basically see large blocks of open sections at every major program. It's been this way for the last few years.
I used to the feel the same way about the Yankees for big games, but last week when they played the Red Sox, tix on Stubhub were selling for $13, which is unheard of for such a big rivalry (even if they're both not making the playoffs).
This is sports wide problem.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||EXACTLY. That's the problem...||
"There's definitely more of the "admire him as a person" than the "he's a X's and O's guru" type of views, but just the same, it's not like people don't respect him."
EXACTLY. That's the problem, they're talking about him the way women talk about guys they would never actually date. That's what people are saying about Hoke, he's a "nice guy" but if you'd ask any of them if they'd hire him for their program, it'd be a loud HELL NO.
"Admire him as a person" is the equivalent of saying that the UM program has a "nice personality". We're not going to reach the top with nice guys who arent good coaches.
|29 weeks 1 day ago||Awesome||
Will be reaching out to you directly!
|29 weeks 1 day ago||CRAP!||
I just found out I'm going to be in Chicago this weekend and wanted to head down and get some last minute tickets.
Anyone want to split a pair so that I'm not the sole UM'er in a sea of domers?
|30 weeks 2 days ago||I've definitely yelled this||
I've definitely yelled this MANY times at the TV.
|32 weeks 2 days ago||Disappointing||
I always thought UW fans were always the most fun fans to come to the big house. The competition was big enough, but without all the pure hatred rhetoric of the rivalry games. Also going to Camp Randal is always a blast
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Also...||
Also, I have never seen Scarface, Casino, or Good Fellas.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Seconded.||
Seconded. Want him to. In my deepest heart of hearts. But I do not think abandoning the spread is the future of college football.
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Comparing it to backup QB situation...||
Comparing it to backup QB situation doesn't make sense since you actually WANT two RB options. Arguing whether Green or Smith is slightly better than the other is not a good use of time since if they're both good, they'll both see the field a lot.
Anyone remember Reggie Bush and Lendale White at USC?
|1 year 17 weeks ago||The day you accept less than||
The day you accept less than perfection, is the day you begin accepting mediocrity.
I will never, ever root against the maize 'n blue. But I will also never root for moral victories and to only lose by less than 14 points as this regime currently seems to accept. If that's what you deem to be a true fan, then I'm not the problem.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Dylan, same boat as you. I||
Dylan, same boat as you. I want what's best for Michigan in the long run... and if it means starting over... again. So be it.
That said, I dont want it to come to that. Beat Ohio!
|1 year 17 weeks ago||What if...||
What if... and just hear me out...
What if, we stopped being lazy and falling back on the "We're Michigan" logic to win games and actually... ya know... got coaches who would give us competitive advantages and maybe demand they actually play to our strengths rather than our glaring weaknesses?
Saying "We're Michigan" is just as effective as throwing our helmets on the field and expecting to win. This is why we can't seem to buy a win versus Sparty or Brutus.
|1 year 23 weeks ago||Didn't want him replaced...||
Didn't want him replaced, just wanted him to get his head out of his a** when it came to sticking with what clearly isn't working.
Though after reading this press conference, I'm might be changing my mind.

|1 year 29 weeks ago||Was there for first UTL game...||
Was there for first UTL game and when I got to town on Thurs, everyone said I'd be lucky to get seats for less than $300 each.
By Friday, was seeing $225-250 a ticket commonplace.
Ended up agreeing to purchase a pair of tix off a friend of a friend (~row 50, in the corner) for about $150 each.
Was supposed to meet the girl for tix at 4p before gametime. Lost phone signal completely due to the influx of people, so in a panic, priced out how much they were selling around the stadium ~6:30-7p and was seeing sub $200 per person prices.
Luckily phone service resumed and was able to meet my original seller. Your mileage may vary.
|1 year 35 weeks ago||Saw a guy in Chicago last week...||
wearing an ND 2012 shirt with a big "UNDEFEATED" across the front.
Didn't get a chance to see if it was a false NC shirt or whether he was just dilusional.
|1 year 38 weeks ago||Has the game time...||
Has the game time been announced yet? It's still showing up as TBA on mgoblue. Kickoff time will help determine if we stay Fri night or Sat.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||Am I at an age...||
Am I at an age yet where I can complain about kids today with their rap music, myspaces, and late arrivals?
|1 year 48 weeks ago||So maybe I missed it, but...||
So maybe I missed it, but when did the half-empty student section become a thing? When I went (00-04), the student section was always almost full by kickoff, and I don't remember it being an issue after that until about 2-3 years ago where you'd see the hugely vacant sections of empty student seats.
I'm legitimately asking. Is there some sort of logic or change behind students suddenly not showing?
