Has the most intense stare I've seen. As a player I'd hate to be on the wrong end of that.
|30 weeks 18 hours ago||i keep waiting||
For Drew Sharp's Freep column about how this is a bad hire. Wait for it...
|33 weeks 5 days ago||Schiano||
is the worst candidate. He's Hoke Part II
|33 weeks 5 days ago||i keep||
waiting for Drew Sharp's story about how Harbaugh is a terrible fit. Cuz you know, Sharp is never wrong...
|33 weeks 5 days ago||Sweet Hawaiian Onion||
Someone from a paper told me that. Trust me i'm not messing with your mind. I can't handle that right now either.
i loved the post a couple days ago wherein someone said WHY DO I CARE ABOUT THIS SO MUCH.
Exactly how i feel
|33 weeks 5 days ago||yup||
"The infighting that apparently has been going on since Bo died is the biggest factor in screwing up the program, IMO."
Amen. It's gotta stop
|33 weeks 5 days ago||meanwhile...||
A writer for one of the Detroit papers told me "people close to Harbaugh" say the deal is almost done for him to come here. "Why don't you write that then?" I asked. "Because my editors don't think 'people close to Harbaugh' is a good-enough source. i'm working on it."
So there's that.
|34 weeks 20 hours ago||can UM||
just hire Chuck Martin and be done with it? shoulda done that when Carr quit.
|35 weeks 1 day ago||wait what?||
"Regardless of who our coach is next year, they should be given 5-6 years before being judged based on the results on the field." UM didn't do that with RRod and doesn't look like the case with Hoke either. What are you talking about? so Hoke gets another year, minimum, right?
|36 weeks 4 days ago||thank you||
i'll keep an eye out
|36 weeks 4 days ago||does||
anyone know when the Maryland start time will be announced? i know noon or 330, but do we know when we'll know which it is?
|36 weeks 4 days ago||my son||
ran track at a Div III school, right about the time RRod was going through practicegate. My kid laughed at the Freep assertions that the football team practiced "too much." He said "that's a hellofa lot less than we spend at track practice." and again, that was Div III track.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||Here i go again||
What box does Chuck Martin not check? He's 46 (answering the not-too-old question), has two undefeated seasons at Grand Valley (four in conference), won every regular-season game from 2004 to 2009, three national championships...good god why not him? He's a Tressel-out-of-Youngstown kind of candidate. Like I said, UM should have grabbed him when Carr left.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||an easy call||
Chuck Martin from Miami of Ohio. A no brainer. Shoulda hired him back when Carr split
|37 weeks 8 hours ago||What||
A great post. Thank you for writing it
|37 weeks 16 hours ago||that||
was one hellofa wishy/washy "blog feature."
it said nothing
|37 weeks 17 hours ago||revenue||
The revenue doesn't matter to them. They see the U has an $8 billion (with a B!) endowment and figuer whatever athletics brings in is couch-cushion money.
|37 weeks 17 hours ago||exactly||
from a poster above: "what if Hoke fits the academic approach the Schlissel is looking for and believes he can improve the teams win loss record?" That's exactly right: If academics/graduating players are the big thing, UM might as well keep Hoke. In my experience (UM student early '80s) athletics was WAY bigger outside the school then inside. Half the University's upper echelon didn't care about the football team. Those that DID care mostly cared in the form of resenting it because Bo made more than their pal who ran chemistry labs and they hated that. more than half the student body didn't care. Way more than half
|37 weeks 4 days ago||Dalton||
Not zero points, negative 3 plus! he ruined my night but i had to start him with Brady on a bye week. ugh
|38 weeks 4 days ago||my kid||
is doing Halloween tonight as homeless Dave Brandon. i thought that was pretty good.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||half||
The regents probably don't know squat about UM's football program and the half that do probably think it gets WAY too much attention and $$$ and generally takes away from students' "quality of life." the whole thing is depressing as shit
|38 weeks 6 days ago||brandon||
knows EXACTLY what's on this blog. He reads it, and lies in saying he doesn't. The screws are getting tighter and he's running out of excuses and he knows it. His ouster can't happen soon enough for me.
|38 weeks 6 days ago||while i do||
want MSU to beat the Buckeyes in a couple weeks, gotta admit i'll snicker at year's end when assclown Dantonio is left off the final four list.
|39 weeks 18 hours ago||also||
I'm not sure i agree Nuss "called a pretty good game." How many times did Gardner roll out and either run or throw? One that i can remember though there are probably more. How many passes to tight ends? How bout the rollout dump to the fullback? That play scored a TD earlier in the year if I remember right, or came close to scoring. punting with 9 minutes to go down how many points? i could go on...
|39 weeks 20 hours ago||he did||
have a Hokeian moment though. "We were in a situation where we didn’t know where the ball [would be] if we got it back at that point in time or not, so Shane went in for the play." That explains it NOT AT ALL
|39 weeks 20 hours ago||what about||
Chuck Martin? in the spirit of a Tressell or Dantonio -- coming from a "lesser" conference: Two Nat. Championships, four undefeated Grand Valley teams, 76-14 overall. Gotta be on the list. ('Course, i said that before UM hired Rodriguez and Hoke, too, so clearly nobody listens...)
|39 weeks 21 hours ago||i like||
Hoke. I've met him. Seems like a nice guy. that's the best i can come up with. my only hope is: Satan's middle child Dantonio just pissed on Hoke's grave and UM higherups use that as motivation to go out and get the right coach, and do it sooner rather than later. If THIS putrid season doesn't result in that happening, nothing will make it happen.
|39 weeks 1 day ago||i don't||
think Dantonio "ran up the score." it's not his job to stop his offense. It's the UM D's job. Yeah Dantonio is a douche, but the late TD isn't a reason why imo
|39 weeks 1 day ago||at this||
point i don't care what his next job is
|39 weeks 1 day ago||great||
post. says it all. I said in another post Hoke apologizing was his John L Smith moment. This whole situation is putrid
