Only a line...

|5 hours 13 min ago||Hoke is the 7th highest paid||
Hoke is the 7th highest paid coach in the nation. We are not paying "MAC-level" for him at all, which just adds insult to injury.
In fact that's about the only thing I like about Brandon -- his willingness to spend top dollar on, what should be, a top coach.
|5 hours 15 min ago||We did get "our guy". Hoke||
We did get "our guy". Hoke was "our guy". That's the problem with the leadership in the athletic department. They think we should be trying to recreate the 70s and 80s.

Which is why I said it was laughable, small chance, etc. You could've answered my question though, that'd have been nice.

Thanks for the responses, not sure why I was negged, I was just genuinely curious.
|7 hours 52 min ago||I asked in the coaching||
I asked in the coaching candidate article too, but what happens if Hoke finishes with a 7-1 or 6-2 conference record?
Certainly it seems laughable at this point, but does he stay?
|7 hours 56 min ago||I know the chances||
I know the chances are infinitesimal, but what if Hoke finishes the year with a 7-1 or 6-2 conference record? Does he still go?
Not suggesting either way, just guaging others' thoughts.

Brian for regent!!

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.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Is there any substance to||
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.
|2 days 53 min ago||Two straight 3 score losses||
Two straight 3 score losses at home to middling teams does not make me confident, but hey maybe the offense clicks at some point.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Yeah, this is not surprising.||
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).

|2 days 22 hours ago||We're getting blown out at||
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.
|3 days 3 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!
|5 days 7 hours ago||I may be wrong, but I really||
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?
|5 days 7 hours ago||So what or who don't they||
So what or who don't they believe in? Hoke? Funk? Nussmeier? Dave Brandon? All of the above?
|6 days 4 hours ago||I'm sure it will, it's just a||
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.
|6 days 8 hours ago||Think back to even the 2012||
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).
|6 days 8 hours ago||In 1921, Oberlin defeated OSU||
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.
|1 week 10 hours ago||The recruiting is rolling, I||
The recruiting is rolling, I agree, now if only the wins would follow.
|1 week 21 hours ago||I don't really get this.||
I don't really get this. Wasn't the complaint after the Utah game that the players didn't have emotion or passion?
|1 week 1 day ago||I agree with what he is||
I agree with what he is saying (regardless of his motives and timing).
|1 week 1 day ago||Sometimes I do forget we're||
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.
