Apparently Howard didnt get the memo that Miles and Brandon hate each other.

Considering Brandon won't be around to do another coaching search, this question is irrelevant.

In hindsight, RichRod was a sure thing. He came as advertised with the exciting offense that improved every year.

Just remember that Addazio lost a few weeks ago to Jim McElwain and CSU.

Because he was a much brighter, and more talented, individual than Hoke could ever be?
And, you know, the whole drawing up and calling his own plays thing.
|5 days 22 hours ago||Marinelli is actually a||
Marinelli is actually a really good NFL Defensive Coordinator. Defensive Coordinator, being a position Hoke never held before becoming a head coach.
|5 days 22 hours ago||How often did he wear a head||
How often did he wear a head set with the offense on the field the last three years when Borges was in the booth?
|5 days 22 hours ago||Just saying, the top coaches||
Just saying, the top coaches in the B1G right now are Urban, Dantonio, and Jerry Kill(!). They all manage just fine to coach their players up on the sidelines as well as being in constant communication with his coordinators about strategies and play calls. Why, exactly, can Hoke not do the same?
He says he doesn't wear a headset so he can do one half of what those three and several others in the conference do. And by the looks of the product on the field since that Sugar Bowl win, he has done a pretty poor job at that one half.
|5 days 22 hours ago||"I'll never quite understand||
"I'll never quite understand how we can both try to condemn Hoke for being disengaged in the game via no headset and simultaneously try to condemn Hoke for clapping on the sideline when his players come off."
For the clapping, have you ever really seen Hoke rip into any of his players after making mistakes? When the offense stalls, or turns it over, in a crucial situation, he claps as they come of the field and then watches the punt team enter, probably with not enough guys on the field.
I was infuriated in the concussion game in the first or second quarter when Morris threw an incompletion that forced a punt and he came off the field all smiles like he didn't care. Why didn't he care? Beecause no matter how much he screws up, his head coach will just clap for him and say "Well uh, gosh Shane, we'll get em next time!"
It's funny, people on here (myself included) made fun of that moment Brian Kelly blew up on the sideline and his face was a red as a tomato. But look at his teams on a consistent basis as opposed to Hoke's. He has shown consistency in winning. He won 8 his forst two years, then went to the NCG, then won 9 last year, and currently 6-0. Where as Hoke started out on fire, and that fire quickly was extinguished.
My point is, Hoke shows no passion/fire out there. And his team is extremely reflective of that.

Hoke and Brandon say he doesn't wear a head set so he can coach up his players on the sideline.
Does it look like those kids are the product of being coached up?
|5 days 22 hours ago||Are you really going to||
Are you really going to compare a coach who is taking the brunt of scholarship reductions, and STILL almost beat Michigan in A2, as a point for why wearing a head set means nothing?
Sure bro, whatever you say. Nevermind the fact that Hoke and Brandon say he doesn't wear one so he can coach these kids up on the sidelines. Yeah, that sure looks like the product of a coached up team on the field the last two or so years.

Lombardi ran the Packers. He ran them. He brought in the talent. He managed the talent, and he coached up the talent. He was the head coach and the general manager of the Packers. He drew up the plays. He called the plays. These are thigs with exception to bringing in the talent Hoke has not done.

Did Chryst have talent to start with at Pitt that Hoke did at Michigan?

If your going with a Bo connection, then Bates would be the guy. He was given the Bo recommendation in his book.
|1 week 1 day ago||I think Bates is the safe,||
I think Bates is the safe, sturdy pick. I would also love Manuel to come in. Long, I dont know, man. Hes good friends with Hoke, and your description of him as "big business" makes it sound like he is just Brandon with more AD experience.

I honestly think Hoke was Brandon's guy the whole time. Brandon is that incompetent.
|1 week 1 day ago||Not sure how thatll happen.||
Not sure how thatll happen. A new athletic director, like a new GM, will want to put his own guy in place on the biggest program. Especially when that program is disappointing the last three years.

Saying time to hit the reset button certainly sounds like a change in leadership.

It has to do with proper coaching and player development. This is where M is failing miserably.

Mississippi State is currently 11th this year in recruiting. In 2014 they were 37th, and 2013 26th, 2012 30th, 2011 44th, 2010 38th, 2009 25th, 2008 44th.
His current team isn't exactly consisting of "great talent" per recruiting sites.
|1 week 4 days ago||You do know there is a||
You do know there is a difference between Mississippi State and the University of Michigan, right? Michigan offers more resources, more money, better facilities, and the talent already on the team is better. They just need actual coaching.
Plus, I think he'd love to face off against his mentor every year.

You know why it'd be easy to pull Mullen?
Drop 8 million per year on him. Only way he turns that down is if Florida offers the same. And Florida has actually been competative in most of their games this year.

Before Ball St, Hoke has inly ever been a DL coach, DE coach, and LB coach. Never a coordinator.

If a new AD is brought it, it probably won't matter if Hoke wins out odds are, even though I'm 99.9 percent sure that won't happen anyways.

Where have I heard this before...

Proud of the palyers. They played their hearts out. Keeping a guy like Hackenberg uncomfortable is a good accomplishment for this defense. What else is there to say about Gardner? He is a warrior. However, he really should not have been out there after getting absolutely crushed and acting like his leg was amputated.
Brady Hoke should thank James Franklin for taking the title from him for "dumbest timeout call of the game" and also thank the ref for that offsides call from the successful onside kick. He coached a bad game, but Franlin happened to coach a worst one.
