Can't remember when we were last not on TV, but I do remember lamenting games I was attending in person back in the 90s for taking too long because of commercial timeouts, so there were definitely weekends when we were not on the tube.

|6 days 1 hour ago||Narduzzi and Bo||
I've seen that comparison made between the coaching histories of Schembechler and Narduzzi, with the intent of justifying Narduzzi as a legitimate candidate to take over the Michigan job, but you listed the important distinction between Bo and Narduzzi. Bo had head coaching experience before coming to Michigan.
Now, that doesn't mean that Narduzzi isn't a good coach and doesn't merit a crack at a head coaching gig, but Bo's time at Miami is a huge discriminator as to why he was a much more worthy candidate to take over at Michigan than Narduzzi would be under similar circumstances. I think there are better options as well.

Honestly, nobody should want to see Hoke fired. The quickest path for Michigan to return to prominence is for Hoke to succeed. Anything else equals additional program instability and more rebuilding latency in getting Michigan back to the upper echelon.

I don't think any football team in the Big 10 could get those odds at this point.

Where does Paul in Toledo get off running down engineers? He can kiss my ME ass.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Huh?||
You don't want to see Hoke fired, but if he loses to OSU and MSU again this year, you want to see Hoke fired?
|1 week 4 hours ago||Based on most of the comments||
Based on most of the comments I've seen the past few days, I don't think the board is the least bit interested in reality when it comes to the football program right now. Of any kind.

If Saban didn't leave Alabama to take the Texas job, there is no way he'd leave for any job, including Michigan. At this point, Saban is at Bama for the remainder of his career.
|1 week 1 day ago||Wow, but can you imagine if||
Wow, but can you imagine if he was? We'd have the whole Necromonger army to leverage in our recruiting.
|1 week 1 day ago||Actually, no, can we please||
Actually, no, can we please not hear about his "why" again. The "why" was even dumber than the original sentiment and one of the most offensive things I've ever read on this board.
|1 week 1 day ago||True||
But you could also argue that we could have / should have beaten Penn State at Happy Valley last year as well. Not that a road win against PSU is anything to trumpet about the past couple of years.
|1 week 1 day ago||Ummm||
|1 week 1 day ago||Sigh||
Goddamnit, can we let the "Michigan Man" thing die already? If Hoke does not ultimately succeed, then I second JDavis' sentiment that the goal of a coaching search should be to hire the best candidate. Period. The only preferences that I would have for the next coach at Michigan would be that he's had prior head coaching experience and he has knowledge of the recruiting landscape in the Midwest. That's it.
That said, I don't have the first clue as to who a good candidate might be and I think speculating about Hoke's replacement after Game 2 seems premature.
|1 week 1 day ago||I Hope You're Right||
But our offensive line was completely overmatched by ND's D-line and their secondary was flying all over the field harassing our receivers and making plays. Sound like any other defense we might be facing later this season?
|1 week 1 day ago||Michigan State clearly looks||
Michigan State clearly looks like the team to beat at this point. That said, no team appears to be invincible and the conference is a non-factor in the playoff conversation this year.
|1 week 1 day ago||True, but....||
While true, there is a big difference between losing a hard fought game where the difference comes down to a half dozen plays that just don't fall your way and losing by 30+ points and looking completely overmatched. With the former, you just go back to work at practice and try to improve week-to-week and ocmpete for the division. Unfortunately for Michigan, the ND game seems to indicate our worst fears may be true, that there are still major problems on both sides of the ball that are not easily fixed in a couple of weeks.
We may be in for a long, frustrating season.
|1 week 1 day ago||What?||
While, I am the first to point out that the treatment Rich Rodriguez received in Ann Arbor was shameful, to suggest that any candidate for the head coaching position of the Michigan football program doesn't know the score with regards to expectations for performance on the field and off is ridiculous.
You're comparing Cal to Michigan? Cal hasn't been to the Rose Bowl since Eisenhower was president. In 50 years, they've won exactly two shared conference championships. The expectations at Cal aren't remotely the same as those at Michigan.
I really don't know where you're going with this.

Four year losing streak.
1987 - Michigan turnover fest in what would prove to be a season-long theme.
1988 - Reggie F*#king Ho, whose infamy is only outstripped by Rob F*#king Houghtlin.
1989 - Stop kicking it to Rocket Ismail!
1990 - All I remember of this game is a Grbac pass glancing off the pads of Micheal Stonebreaker and falling right into the hands of Reggie Brooks to deliver the final dagger.
Three of these games were absolutely winnable and you could easily make the argument Michigan outplayed the Irish in each of them. My roommates and I were convinced Holtz had sold his soul to Satan.
But you're absolutely right about the elation that came with winning in 1991. The younger guys on the board will never understand, but back in the late 80's, early 90's the team that always ruined Michigan's season was the Irish. Getting over the hump on them in '91 was like Michigan finally beating OSU in 2011, it was that big of a deal.
|1 week 5 days ago||Don't forget the part about||
Don't forget the part about only applying to Michigan just so they could have the pleasure of turning them down. That's always been my favorite variation on the lie.
|1 week 5 days ago||The language of the rule||
The language of the rule covers things like personal hardships and the like. We don't know why Bosch is stepping away, but we can probably assume it would fall under the definition of a hardship that the NCAA would take into consideration.

Hey pal, and I mean this sincerely, from the bottom of my heart...
|1 week 5 days ago||1991 - Hands Down||
The Catch, and here's why. As great as the UTL I game was, it still was a furious comeback to make up for 2.5 quarters of awful. The '91 game was a tightly fought contest and Moeller calling for a pass on 4th down clinging to a 3 point lead is one of the gutsiest things I've ever seen from a Michigan coach.
|1 week 5 days ago||So....||
If I understand you correctly, your argument distills down to, " quit bitching, fire Hoke".
|1 week 6 days ago||Myself and the rest of my||
Myself and the rest of my Michigan cronies were watching in one of our respective mancaves. Some beer was had and the celebration got very raucous very quickly...primarily because Michigan turned things into a gamelong celebration. Anyhow, amidst all the high-fiving, chest-bumping, and bro-hugs after every good play Michigan made, the owner of the house had taken to sprinting across the basement and kind of jump bumping into the wall, which we all thought was amusing. However, after Woodley picked up the Quinn fumble and rumbled into the endzone for the final dagger, he raced across the room and hit the wall perfectly between the joists, leaving a body size dent in the sheet rock, and his wife staring in silent, dumb-founded disbelief. This left the rest of us literally rolling on the floor in peals of laughter. Priceless.
That is my enduring memory of the 2006 ND game.

I know one tangible way that Michigan can conclusively confirm your sentiment incontrovertibly.
