Did I miss something? Did anyone seriously not ask about the 4th and 1 delay of game and the subsequent punt? Were there any journalists at this press conference? WTF?

osu is better ion each category....and they stink. This wasn't exactly a battle of the titans. Wish it was different. But it's not.

I am afraid the UM Offensive Line is a dumpster fire.
|18 weeks 5 days ago||OHHHHHHHHH||
"OT" you mean. Offensive Tackles. (didn't say that at first, which made it completely and horribly incorrect)

2. 31 years
5. Kinda made me think about not renewing
BONUS: I immediately sold my pair of tickets to someone for the first time ever. Money up front, 10% discount (plus I ate the $150 PSD). I am very happy. I plan on going to all the games anyway for an average of $20 a game or less. I may have to miss a game (typical - Special Olympics commitments) and I kind of look forward to not liking a price on a game, walking from tailgate to a bar to watch before leading the post-tailgate. Funny that I am not actually looking forward to watching the football game in person. Hmmmm. 32nd year of having seats, but I am not immune to the effects of Hoke & Brandon.

Buttttt...that wasn't what the OP posted about...I think, right?

I am pretty sure there is a grace period, just to cut down on drama. I was under the impression it was a couple weeks. Not sure why I am under that specific an impression. I am getting old and I forget things dammit.

As I understand it, there is a cap on the tickets being sold for all, for each presale. Keep trying all the codes. There WILL be tickets for public sale. The presale is a subset of tickets. That's how it typcally works for concerts and the like.

I fully support. I will even hold off on saying "should win".

He would take the Michigan job in a second. It's his dream job. Michigan would have to pay, but he is the PERFECT coach for Michigan.

If Hoke was a good leader he would handle this completely on his own. We should not hear so much form the AD. Hoke needs to answer the questions. They are not unreasonable. He is just not good enough it seems.

So, when are they going to answer the questions?

Are you suggesting that the head football coach cannot answer tough questions about football team business?
I mean, if you are, I agree, but I just want to know if you are suggesting that and agreeing with my impression.
|32 weeks 22 hours ago||The time and place was today,||
The time and place was today, since this was the first free press conference since the story broke, I agree the kids are being denied a better welcome, but this is the department's fault, not the reporters. Hoke is being placed under the bus by Dave Brandon and MSC. He is not equipped to handle this. It showed. Ugh.

Thank you sir may I have another!
|32 weeks 6 days ago||Oh, one can rationalize a lie||
Oh, one can rationalize a lie if one so chooses. Still a lie. And still making rounds on the national media circuit. If it continues to get legs, Hoke will have to come clean and rationalize out loud.
Plus there is the whole Gibbons-playing-after-it-was-determined-he-did-something-wrong thing. Iowa. Lies.

Ha emo, if you only knew.
Not enjoying the sadness and disapointment. Not looking for sympathy. I expect responsibility. Lying is avoiding it. Hoke is a liar.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||Who's to say he didn't do||
Who's to say he didn't do those first two? Because he lied.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||Well summaraized. But if||
Well summaraized. But if lawyers tell you to lie and you do, you are still a liar. I admit this would be a tough spot, but Hoke being a football coach should argue he needs to say something else that isn't a lie.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||I hear you, but things don't||
I hear you, but things don't go away when you get caught lying. They stick around. Still, a few more well-placed lies may get this to go away. I know I sound like a broken record on hear but I just can't over my disapointment: Hoke's a liar.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||"Team Rules" probably||
"Team Rules" probably includes not sexually assaulting someone or even putting oneself in the position to be accused of sexually assaulting someone. I care how Hoke worded it becasue it smacks of avoiding questions about how Gibbons played all year and the injury for the osu game. He lied.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||All they have to do is not||
All they have to do is not lie. Learn some catchphrases and tell the truth or withhold it. But liying? Don't lie.
|32 weeks 6 days ago||There is a lot of good||
There is a lot of good discussion here. But what has me all sad is that Hoke lied. he went out of his way to lie. There could be other issues we may find out, but Holke LIED. He did not have to lie. But he certainly did. Violation of Team Rules is all he needed to say. We can discuss if he could ahve said more or not. Fact is he LIED. I am making a very reasonable assumption that Dave Brandon told Brady Hoke around the 19th. And it is also reasonable to assume that Hoke had a reason to lie beyond FERPA and all that (I am thinking it is embarrassing that Gibbons played all year, but that is speculation on my part)
When you lie, you know what that makes you? A liar.
I feel sad.
