“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.”

- He seems like a stand up guy by all accounts
- He stuck with the program through 2 HCs, 3 OCs, and a transition from the position he was recruited for (QB) to WR and back to QB

To be fair, his resume at the time was with Houston
Yeah, in retrospect he probably would've been a good hire, but that resume doesn't inspire much more (if at all) than Hoke's. Brandon gets a pass from me for this one.

Is there any substance to this rumor? Have had a couple people mention to me at work today that Peppers was considering transferring, but I couldn't really nail down a source.

Two straight 3 score losses at home to middling teams does not make me confident, but hey maybe the offense clicks at some point.

Yeah, this is not surprising. There's going to be attrition, especially after Hoke is fired.

Students should stage a walkout (as mentioned in the podcast).

We're getting blown out at home by 3 scores, the fact that we're only a 3 PT dog on the road is amazing.
Looking at the schedule I'm not sure we should be favored in any of our remaining games.

Why not simply I made a mistake and I am sorry?

Hoke's presser tomorrow is going to be painful, maybe we'll get some real Q&A.
|2 days 17 hours ago||Brady, on the other hand,||
Based on what? Highly-ranked recruiting classes? It surely can't be on the field results.
Dave Brandon fired RR because he didn't like where the program was going, even though we were winning more games each year than the previous.
Now, Hoke is losing more games each year than the previous, and we are on track for potentially a 3-9, 4-8 type season (honestly, 2-10 seems quite attainable). Keeping Hoke while firing Rich Rod is completely inconsistent.
I would like to add I do agree with some of your sentiment. I don't think Brandon and Hoke should be fired at the same moment. Brandon should go before Hoke, so he needs canned this week and Hoke can be fired following the OSU game.

Needed some good news today, and the Lions win too!

I may be wrong, but I really don't think the NCAA is a reduced workload. You've got to fly around the country begging kids to come to your school. Why not make more money in the NFL and skip that hassle?

So what or who don't they believe in? Hoke? Funk? Nussmeier? Dave Brandon? All of the above?

I'm sure it will, it's just a matter of when. We had a pretty down decade back in the 60s and came roaring in the 70s, so, there's that I suppose.

I would be very surprised if he came to Michigan.

Think back to even the 2012 team. Smoked by Alabama in the opener, ugly loss @ND but they rebounded to go 6-2 in the conference (likely 7-1 if Gardner had come in as QB when Denard went down in Nebraska).

In 1921, Oberlin defeated OSU in Columbus by a score of 7-6. That was the last loss OSU had to an in-state school.
Which is, admittedly, basically never.

The recruiting is rolling, I agree, now if only the wins would follow.

I don't really get this. Wasn't the complaint after the Utah game that the players didn't have emotion or passion?

I agree with what he is saying (regardless of his motives and timing).

Sometimes I do forget we're only 4 games in to his tenure here, let's see if he can get the offense going this conference season.

I just feel really bad for Gardner, because
It just doesn't seem fair that he has anything less than a stellar season this year, but (so far) that doesn't look like it's in the cards.
|1 week 22 hours ago||Brandon has to go before Hoke||
Brandon has to go before Hoke does, he'll simply botch the next coaching search (if there is one). Unbelievable, if true, that he didn't even reach out to Harbaugh and Miles, especially if there was interest from them.

Well the good news is when you hit rock bottom, you can't fall any farther.

I'm not referring to you, specifically. I am referring to the contingent of fans on the board who complain after every presser about how Hoke throws his players under the bus and doesn't take responsibility. Those who may see this type of public behavior as somehow desirable even though it is doing the same thing (deriding the players and placing the blame on them).
|1 week 1 day ago||?||
When Hoke says We didn't execute that's throwing his players under the bus and not being accountable, but when Spurrier says We're not a very good team and The way we play is embarrassing that is somehow better?
Or is it merely yelling and being angry about things? What's the word, intensity?

Which product on the field? Hoke's or Mattison's?

Mattison said he wouldn't have left the Ravens to come here if it weren't for "that man" (points to Hoke).
Let's see where the dust settles at the end of the Big Ten season, hopefully no sooner. I think the way I will approach each game is in a vacuum -- completely independent of results prior and results after. The only thing that currently matters is beating Minnesota.
That may not be a realistic approach, but it mitigates a lot of the sad feelings for me.
