Did anyone really expect Hoke to get up there and say "Well, I'm a terrible coach and our football team is bad"?

How very Brown Jug of you.

11-2 with a Big Ten championship and a Rose Bowl berth saves his job without a doubt.
|4 hours 34 min ago||Backup QB is the most popular||
Backup QB is the most popular guy on the team until he starts playing. I think its a less silly option this week than I did last week though, I will concede that.
|5 hours 2 min ago||Is anyone on the board not||
Is anyone on the board not aware that we aren't winning enough games and havent (save 2011) for quite some time now?

Does Harbaugh want the job? Would DB hire him?
|19 hours 4 min ago||You don't know. Maybe||
You don't know. Maybe Beilein is a seer and he knows we are going 8-0 in the conference.
Holy shit that's ridiculous, both the seer and 8-0 parts.
|19 hours 31 min ago||I look at the schedule and||
I look at the schedule and wonder how we are even going to get bowl eligible if Notre Dame and Utah games are indicative of our play against non-cupcakes.
|19 hours 32 min ago||I think I'm still there as||
I think I'm still there as well.
Firing a coach doesn't mean things automatically get better, and if our track record is indicative of the future (2 of the last 2 coaching searches botched in some form or another) then I don't think Dave Brandon will make the best choice given the option again.
I have to commend Hoke for recognizing the offense was a problem last year and firing his good friend Borges to make a change. Here we are 4 games into a new offense (how many in the past few years?). We're still 0-0 in the Big Ten, the defense is good to possibly great, if the offense can put the pieces together we can still do some damage in an admittedly watered down conference.

We need an entire reboot. It should go (figuratively) something like this:

I, too, consumed alcohol yesterday.
|1 day 1 hour ago||2007, 2008 We have a good||
We have a good defense, if we can get the offense to click we can still compete.
|1 day 2 hours ago||Eh, I'll go to the home||
Eh, I'll go to the home games. I've lowered my expectations. Football season is too short to get so upset about. Enjoy the weather, tailgating, and beer.
|1 day 14 hours ago||I like the weather channel, I||
I like the weather channel, I was okay with it. Meh . Who wants a beer?
|1 day 15 hours ago||If I were to wager a guess,||
If I were to wager a guess, it's because we don't win enough football games.
|1 day 15 hours ago||I think acceptance honestly.||
I think acceptance honestly. We just aren't that good at football, and I think I accept it. Ill be to each home game, cheering, but knowing we aren't there. Honestly I've not felt so removed from football since I started at Michigan in 2008, maybe its a blessing in disguise.

Arbitrary, comma is arbitrary,
|4 days 4 hours ago||Because we were playing Miami||
Because we were playing Miami (OH). I suspect that sequence goes differently if we are playing a Big Ten game, especially a good one.
|4 days 23 hours ago||Good, I'll hopefully have||
Good, I'll hopefully have that self-driving car to take me to Austin. Or maybe teleportation will be invented by then? I like to think I'd still drive for the nostalgia of it.

Is there a 4 RB formation we intend to use next year?
|5 days 21 hours ago||Tempo for the sake of tempo||
Tempo for the sake of tempo is useless. Deploy it if you need to confuse the defense. Also, maybe it's not game ready yet? IIRC against ND we tried to go no-huddle (or short-huddle, perhaps) and we did convert a 3rd down but then immediately got whistled for a false start on the next play. It simply might not be game-ready, we are in game 4 of our new offense after all, and practice is much different than the game.

I tend to agree, we've debated the non-disclosure of injuries ad nauseum on this blog, I think we just accept it and move on.

This was an excellent read. I have nothing to contribute, but I thought you should know that.

Numbers don't lie. Just go with it.

That fake butt block though. Damn. Wouldn't mind seeing that again.

|1 week 14 hours ago||Say what you will about the||
Say what you will about the level of competition, but we weren't getting this production from the RBs in our cupcake games last season. It's at least a start. I think we can all appreciate having a running game of some sort, even if it has been against inferior opponents.
|1 week 3 days ago||I think it means if the guys||
I think it means if the guys that are best at man are out, you should probably attempt to mix in more zone. How much blame is assignable to coaches for them not being good at man, well, you may have something there.

And what if Harbaugh isn't interested? Who's next on your list?
|1 week 4 days ago||Exactly this. If we struggle||
Exactly this. If we struggle to put Miami (NTM) away then we're in for a rough season.
