|1 hour 42 min ago||8-5 is looking pretty good right about now||
and may be looking even better by the time this season is done. A lot better.
|2 hours 2 min ago||Without getting into the substantive argument||
I just want to point out that a reply to an existing thread on the same topic is also considered an appropriate outlet for "one man's view."

I'm sick and tired of you setting me up
|1 day 4 hours ago||The stadium music has tried to warn Hoke many times||
His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
|1 day 23 hours ago||The more I learn about this||
the more it seems to me Hoke is just the hapless, simple-minded marionette on Brandon's strings.
|1 day 23 hours ago||I'm gonna guess||
Certain people didn't make it easy for the medical staff to do their jobs, because those certain people would have rather not known the answer.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Signed.||
Haven't used my uniqname in many years... glad to know it still works for such a good cause.
|2 days 7 hours ago||@*#$&?!?!!!!!!||
|2 days 7 hours ago||Mr. Brandon||
Your replacement has been ordered and will be delivered in 30 minutes or less.
|2 days 12 hours ago||What the hell, reporters...||
no questions about "why was Morris even in the game at the point the late hit occured when it was clear he was overwhelmed, hobbled, and inffective, and you had a healthy Devin Gardner as a plan B? Were you just trying to prove a point to someone instead of trying to win the game? If you were trying to win the game, did you really think you had the best chance with Shane after 100 yards of offense in the 1st half? After the phantom fumble? etc?"
I'm getting pissed about the head-injury firestorm mostly because it's distracting from the underlying football incompetence issues-- and this presser was a perfect example.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Hope Bo does haunt all the mofos.||
But does it trouble anyone else that Hoke isn't coaching like someone who thinks his job is in jeopardy? We seem to be assuming he's oblivious or simply incompetent, but what if there's a different answer... his job isn't in jeopardy?
The situation reminds of that scene in The Untouchables where Capone is getting buried with negative testimony and yet he's relaxed and smiling, leaving the prosecutor bewildered and wondering "what has Capone got?" (it turned out to be a bribed judge and jury)
Maybe he's got some assurance from DB's office (or somewhere else) that he's coming back no matter what? Would that explain keeping an ineffective and hobbled Shane Morris in the game long into the second half when it was clear Devin Gardner would give the team a better chance of winning?
|3 days 14 hours ago||Quite optimistic||
Do you really think we'll manage 3 points against MSU?
|3 days 14 hours ago||how did you get all the way up to -61?||
Want to throw in some anti-black, anti-Jew, anti-______ comments in while you're at it?
|4 days 4 hours ago||Those two choices||
are not mutually exclusive.
Could be a little of column A and a little of column B. Or a lot of both.
|4 days 4 hours ago||It was Braden.||
Braden caught him and started waving to the sideline (the near sideline).
|4 days 4 hours ago||Hoke: "Tis but a scratch."||
For the record, Hoke left the Black Knight in the game.
|4 days 4 hours ago||It was Braden who waved to the sideline to get Shane out||
right after Shane basically collapsed onto him when he couldn't stand. Shane wanted to stay in.
None of that matters. Hoke saw it. I've always said Hoke is a good guy, but that was a disgraceful showing of contempt for the health of a helpless player.
Fuck Hoke. I'm done with him.
|4 days 12 hours ago||Alrighty then.||
It begins. Come on kid, light 'em up.
|4 days 12 hours ago||This team/program misses Bo.||
More specifically, this team misses a guy who could override some of the hard-wired entitlement that creeps into 4 and 5-star guys who have spent much of their young athletic lives being The Man in high school, being showered with sycophantic praise, and need to be broken down a little and rebuilt.
The kids seem to love Hoke. That's cool. But I've said this before and I'll say it again, I'd rather see the trajectory of feelings Bo's former players said they had about him:
As a freshman, you hate his goddamned guts.
As a sophomore, you accept him.
As a junior, you respect him.
As a senior, you love him like he's your father.
|4 days 12 hours ago||According to Hoke||
we've had a great week of practice. I know this, because he says it every week. We're totally undefeated in practice for over 3 straight years.
|4 days 13 hours ago||I think the 1% disagree a good bit||
but these guys are like the .001%. Ross is probably more like .000001%.
|6 days 3 min ago||I assume "slums" is a typo||
and you meant to type "East Quad". Heyyooooooo.
|6 days 1 hour ago||Totally apt Hitler comparison.||
Few people remember but you could get comp tickets to the Nuremberg Rally with the purchase of two bottles of Becks.
|6 days 1 hour ago||and that's the most dubious part||
because keeping a petition secret is more or less antithetical to the whole purpose of petitioning.
But I'm sure that when they decided to let the world in on it, they thought, "Of all the media figures in the world, how about an exclusive tip of this super-secret petition to Gregg Henson?"
|6 days 1 hour ago||Zing!||
"The [Michigan athletic] department now has all the credibility of Pravda, and half the charm."
|6 days 4 hours ago||I thought this was a terrific take||
and he even put in a plug for Henri the Otter of Ennui!
Staples might have missed how much turmoil surrounds Brandon himself as opposed to will-he-or-won't-he-fire-Hoke. Otherwise, I'd say that's a rather good encapsulation of the current state of affairs by an outsider.
|6 days 6 hours ago||So, in a word, offense's failures are...||
|6 days 9 hours ago||This may have been a supremely gloomy UFR, but...||
"The 8-bit Nintendo of constraint plays"? That's gold, Jerry. Gold!
|6 days 9 hours ago||Come on man.||
First of all, sacks don't tell you anything about numbers of times hit. Maybe Devin's just swallowing the olive at a higher rate.
Second, you think maybe that has a little, just a little to do with who Morris taking his snaps against, and who DG has taken his against? If Morris can keep his head when the ceiling is falling in on him in East Lansing, the next two-and-a-half years will be looking bright indeed. Hope to see that. A competitive game would do a lot to lift the black cloud over A2.
I will say that if the switch was being contemplated at all, better to make it now against this part of the schedule.
