When I heard it was Hoke, I had that feeling of utter disappointment similar to when you think your getting a great present and you get socks and underwear. Based on Brandon's comments about pay and defense I expected a proven top quality coach. Clearly Brandon only cares about the coach being a Michigan Man (Bo man). I hope Hoke is successful because there are no other Michigan Men after him.

If the annual salary is ridiculously high, then Hoke probably was plan A and Brandon overpaid. Perhaps on purpose.

He still has 3 years on his original contract.

I can't imagine another program taking RR and all his defensive assistants after the last two years at M. Their resumes don't look real appealing right now.

If i was Denard and Harbaugh is the coach, I would leave and head to a spread program, burn my redshirt and then have two years to perform. His stock is crazy high, he has proven he can be a QB, and there is little chance Harbaugh uses him the same way.

It seems to me that our offense is more successful when running at a very fast tempo. This was the case in early games and when down by multiples in the second half. I have felt the offense is a little slow on the first couple possessions. I think if this offense scores early to start it can hurt the morale of opposing defenses, whereas a three and out to start strengthens their morale.

I don't think Penn State was backing off when they faked the field goal late in the game. Joe Pa did not want Denard on the field.

2.5 years of sitting the bench to learn the offense and develop can mean a lot. Also, he is a former walk-on, so JoePa saw enough to award a scholarship.

I'd rather rather see Denard get a quick pass as a receiver where he could take off or pass it forward as the CBs pull up to tackle. I would think most CBs would give him a big cushion on the LOS.

If Alabama is the home team, does that mean their season ticket holders will get most of the tickets?

If stipends were being paid it would reduce one of the competitive advantages Michigan has in recruiting. The value of a Michigan degree is far greater than the value of degrees from other institutions because of the quality of education, access to alumni, and even starting salaries upon graduation. If other universities could compensate by paying recruits then the value would equalize over time.
