Well the good news is when you hit rock bottom, you can't fall any farther.
|15 hours 18 min ago||I'm not referring to you,||
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).
|15 hours 29 min 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?
|16 hours 25 min ago||Mattison said he wouldn't||
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.

Nuss is also 4 games in, and this is our QBs 3rd OC, 3rd system.
Does Nuss being only 4 games in excuse our incompetent offense? That's debatable, but an important consideration I think.
|17 hours 2 min ago||Baylor is 1st in the country||
Baylor is 1st in the country scoring offense (59.3 PPG) and 2nd in the country in scoring defense, giving up 9 PPG.
|19 hours 28 min ago||Did anyone really expect Hoke||
Did anyone really expect Hoke to get up there and say "Well, I'm a terrible coach and our football team is bad"?
|19 hours 48 min ago||How very Brown Jug of you.||
How very Brown Jug of you.
|21 hours 22 min ago||11-2 with a Big Ten||
11-2 with a Big Ten championship and a Rose Bowl berth saves his job without a doubt.
|23 hours 54 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.
|1 day 22 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?
|1 day 12 hours ago||Does Harbaugh want the job?||
Does Harbaugh want the job? Would DB hire him?
|1 day 14 hours 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.
|1 day 14 hours 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.
|1 day 14 hours 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 20 hours 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 21 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.
|2 days 10 hours ago||I like the weather channel, I||
I like the weather channel, I was okay with it. Meh . Who wants a beer?
|2 days 10 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.
|2 days 10 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 23 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.
|5 days 19 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.
|5 days 19 hours ago||Is there a 4 RB formation we||
Is there a 4 RB formation we intend to use next year?
|6 days 16 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.
|1 week 9 hours ago||I tend to agree, we've||
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.
