“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”

I've been wondering whether something like this (Hoke's state of mind) didn't feed into the Morris situation. Maybe Hoke really thought he had a chance to turn this thing around and stay here, even after Utah. But when he went down by 23 to Minny, it finally hit him that it was over. This realization (or him starting to mentally pack) stunned or distracted him causing him to lose focus on the situation and take the actions he should have with Morris.
|20 hours 45 min ago||Obviously not an ideal||
Obviously not an ideal situation from a recruiting stand point, but is recruiting going to be worse under an interim head coach than it would under an obvious lame duck? The fact that this is expected to be a smaller recruiting class ought to help mitigate some of the smoldering crater holes that impact depth. To me, the real depth issue is not about recruiting, but about potential transfers.

Could the Buckeye have reason why he wants to see Hoke stay as Michigan's coach?

Nothing against Justice (would actually like to see him utilized more), but I am not convinced that in the clip which catches him signalling to the sideline, he is doing that in relation to Morris. It seems to me like he is asking whether he (Hayes) comes out or stays in for the next play.

You were down 23, which could be a 3 score game if you make a couple of 2 point conversions. When you scored to make the differential 17, why did you not go for 2?

I was sitting on the "on a sailboat" curveball and you blew the "visiting with supportive donors" fastball right by me.

He also has a "do not discuss I juries" policy, but abandoned that when it was convenient. Expect similar here.

So now I'm supposed to boycott the boycotts? I'm soooo confused.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Also assuming Gardner was||
Also assuming Gardner was healthy, I believe he should have started. There is, however, another argument for starting Morris. Maybe they were looking for a spark that the team could rally behind. By the end of the first half, it was obvious that didn't work and Morris wasn't getting the job done, so the switch back to Gardner should have been made then (if not earlier). But that would take putting the team ahead of your pride.

With Morris being wobbly, wouldn't it be reasonable to assume that he might be concussed and to pull him from the game? If you didn't see it, who is responsible for getting you this information?

"Am I missing something?" Yes you are. A head coach with a clue.

Morris played after he appeared wobbly and before he was evaluated by medical staff.
He went back in when Gardner lost his helmet with, what I'm guessing, was insufficient time to go through proper medical protocols to determine if he was concussed.
The statement that the coaches do not determine when a player returns to competition is a lie. Medical staff clears a player to be available to play, coaches put them in games. Medical staff's role is to determine whether the injury warrants holding a player. They don't determine whether the injury will limit a player's effectiveness. Further, while medical staff clears a player to return, I don't think they evaluate the risk that the injury will hamper a player such that it exposes them to other risks because they can't effectively protect themselves.

I might have this wrong, but isn't this the same guy that hit Morris after he slide? On that one, it looked to me he lowered his shoulder after the slide. It didn't appear to be just incidental contact because the guy couldn't stop (which is why I assume the refs didn't flag it)

Cokegate is recent and in the forefront of many folks minds. That being said, giving it a 10 on the embarrassment level scale is ridiculus. If that is a 10 would folks rate fiascos other universities have gone through that are much worse, such has harboring pedophiles or having your coach given a show-cause?

Nope, none of that. Hoke was wearing long sleeves pre-game -- that sunk the battleship.

You have to either fire him or extend his contract, which I think is a point Brian made. Unless you want to seriously hurt your program, you can't bring him back next year without an extension as without long term coaching prospects, he will be completely neutered on the recruiting trail. Can you imagine the uproar if Hoke gets extended?

That question is hanging whether or not Hoke is officially fired.
