@SamWebb77: Sounds like Delano Hill's absence is of the Jake Butt variety from a few weeks ago. Word in pressbox: "Hoke will address it after the game."

Keep up the conspiracy theories..and Im guessing several here will somehow say that Brandon is behind the supposed overreported total.

Or because 1500 people on twitter have already said the same stupid unoriginal "aware" joke
|1 week 2 days ago||This is a very important||
This is a very important recruit as she will likely have to play right away..they will be in desperate need for catching as top 2 catchers on team are both seniors.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||yes - that happened..but i||
yes - that happened..but i was answering the question about the blocked FG as there were photos on twitter that made it look as if there were only 9 people on field on that play. Ace had suggested so...but it was investigated and there were 11 on the blocked FG. As ugly as the came was, the coaching wasnt the issue today as the coaches didnt drop passes or throw interceptions.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||What did Nuss do so bad||
What did Nuss do so bad today? Was it his fault Funchess dropped multiple passes? Was it his fault Gardner missed a wide open Dever to throw an interception?
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed...offensive line was||
Agreed...offensive line was solid and I didnt really have many issues with the playcalling. The reality is that the offensive problems come down to issues with Gardner and Funchess almost entirely.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||It was definitely 11..went||
It was definitely 11..went back and rewatche it because of the photo. The conclusion by Ace and others on Twitter was that there were 11 as it was just a weird photo were the long snapper and another were hidden.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||There were 11..stop trying to||
There were 11..stop trying to make things up. watch the play again - definitely 11.

Not sure if you are joking..but its the softball stadium. Both fields switched from grass to field turf this year for the first time...helps alot with the early spring games when the weather is poor as field drains much quicker.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yes - it can be a||
Yes - it can be a coincidence. I think Hoke has bent his own rules for specific purposes to 1) stop the noise and rumors about Peppers and 2) defend Gardner's play by hinting that he still is injured and nowhere near fully healthy.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||No - Im saying its||
No - Im saying its interesting that the students complained this year when there was no increase in prices and the seating policy was created by CSG...but last year it wasnt as vocal even though there had been an increase and the hated general admission policy. Perhaps the 2-4 start this year vs a 6-1 start last year had alot more to do with it than is admitted.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Good point. This year there||
Good point. This year there was no increase in student ticket prices..this year the general admission issue was corrected based on agreement between the students (CSG) and the AD...yet this year was when the protests not last year when the ticket prices were incrased and there was general admission. So why were the protests this year? I see two things: 1) a poor win/loss record to start the year (2-4) and some bad early losses and 2) the use of the Shane Morris incident as an opening for protest as it allowed the protestors to have the moral high ground because they could say their concern was for the safety of the players.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||OK..so now you are saying the||
OK..so now you are saying the poor student attendance is a win/loss thing..and I thought it was supposed to be a Brandon thing.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||You are right..either could||
You are right..either could happen...So there are valid arguments on both sides. This started as a rebuttal to those calliing Hoke an idiot for bungling the clock management. Both sides can be defended.

@ShaneMorris_7: Shout out to the few students who stayed till the end of the game.. And to those who didn't... We won.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||While many pretended that the||
While many pretended that the recent support that came out for Brandon by athletes and coaches was "forced", it was real and the continued support after Brandon's dismissal shows it. Im sure many of the athletes and coaches are really annoyed and upset about losing their leader because this was a fan led dismissal... the athletes/coaches may view it as due to fans complaining about small things like emails, coke ads, piped in music and things that each on their own seem a bit trivial before adding them all together.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Gardner looks very limited in||
Gardner looks very limited in his ability to run and must still have a fairly serious injury. There were several times yesterday where he sat in pokcet even though he had an open lane...last year he would have ripped off a 20 yard one in those scenarios. Hoke hinted at this during the week but I think the playcalling is restricted because of his leg.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Well, they were essentially||
Well, they were essentially free today as they had already paid for them for the season..plus Brandon was gone so couldnt use that excuse. So I guess you could look at it and say todays student crowd was representative of what the turnout would be if they were free.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||At that point, I had no||
At that point, I had no interest in seeing Gardner throw downfield into the wind with a minute left in half. He had just thrown a pick and an almost pick-six going in the same direction. More than happy to go in the locker room up 17-0 and getting the ball back to start the second half.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Great pass blocking by the||
Great pass blocking by the RB's today. I noticed Hayes especially getting several key blocks when Indiana blitzed...they were able to give Gardner tons of time to throw.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed. This was a chance for||
Agreed. This was a chance for students to show they support the team and to stay for the entire game now that Brandon is gone. Instead, they left at the half and made it appear as if they were disappointed they didnt get to wear their "fire brandon" t-shirts.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Given you have 3 Lb's in||
Given you have 3 Lb's in there, you are saying that Jake Ryan and Bolden should be benched. Is that what you are saying?
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Who is making a bigger deal||
Who is making a bigger deal about the 100,000 streak? A) The athletic department wanting to keep the streak or B) Certain Michigan writers wanting them to fall below so they can pounce and criticize it and laugh? Sure seems like any time I hear about the streak its from group B.

How about you wait to know if that is actually the case before making that conclusion?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Not true. Manning joined the||
Not true. Manning joined the defensive staff as an assistant in 2013..so only 1 year. He was an assistant at Northern Illinois in 2012. In 2011, he was on the staff as a grad assistant with the offense not defense.

If he was fired, i highly doubt they would be able to reduce the payment for any salary at a future employer. That shows it wasnt the exact same as the terms that would have occurred for a firing per the contract Brandon had in place.
