I think she just needs a unique name. I'm an old alum and have one - I think any alum can. Take a look here:
|3 hours 12 min ago||Probably have some semantics||
Probably have some semantics going on here. In fairness the OP didn't say there was going to me a "BOR Meeting". A conference call can be a meeting with someone in the generic sense. But it's pretty clear Schissel is going to be talking to at least some of the regents about this today. I also don't doubt that at least some of them want Brandon gone today.

Yeah but we're also going to have to learn how to punt, pass and kick before then

I was just trying to inject a dose of optimism, however futile.
Can't you just envision our signature 5-step drop against this pass rush? I saw the PSU game and whatever else you think of Rutgers they get after the QB big time.
Fear not I'm sure Hoke has a plan for better execution.

Part of that was against PSU, so yeah.
Can we discuss basketball instead?
|18 hours 51 min ago||I don't care what Bacon's||
I don't care what Bacon's sources are, no one he's talking to in the ADept is going to confirm this, assuming they would know. If someone's talking to these guys the ADept will be on the outside looking in.
|19 hours 22 min ago||Absolutely correct. This is||
Absolutely correct. This is one case where Bacon may not know as much as he thinks he does. Even Schlissel is probably not directly involved, but you can bet at least some of the regents are speaking to these guys.
|21 hours 5 min ago||If his dismissal is a||
If his dismissal is a foregone conclusion then it should happen today. Having him lame duck the rest of the season will only keep fueling the negative press and damage recruiting. This is hitting a critical mass where a mid-season firing might be the lesser of two evils.
|21 hours 58 min ago||They could stand across the||
They could stand across the various adjoining streets, plus State Street, Pioneer HS lot etc. You could get many, many pretty easily.

You have got to be freaking kidding. Great let's further embarass the school and program.
|23 hours 42 min ago||What they're no realizing is||
What they're not realizing is that this is very different than the typical corporate PR situation. The amount of information available to the public here is virtually the same as what they have so they don't have the same ability to control the dialog. No one on "that side", including these radio lackeys seems to appreciate that not-so-subtle nuance

They're never going to admit a thing - pathetic

All joking aside that's why he doesn't wear the headset. He has no history of gameplanning or in-game strategizing. he simply is not in control of the team.

He says it all with such unwavering certainty

unless of course you have a schematic advantage in which case you can afford a clueless coach

Maybe he can coach from the box?
|2 days 17 min ago||I can't imagine two coaches||
I can't imagine two coaches with less in common than John Beilein and Brady Hoke. If you think Hoke call pull a Beilein-esque recovery here you are insane.
|2 days 1 hour ago||If it were just for team||
If it were just for team performance you would have a hard choice whether to fire him now or at the end of the season. Leaving him in after the head hit is the reason they have to do it now - if nothing else use it as the excuse to pull the trigger and get it over with. Let Nuss run the team for7-8 games and not have a weekly rehashing of Hoke looking clueless.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Who are you going to hire in||
Who are you going to hire in November? Every credible coach is still working then.
Given what's happening now do you really think these other coaches are not in our recuits ears now?
Have a lemon
|2 days 11 hours ago||Funny, I thought by hires you||
Funny, I thought by hires you meant hi-res, like we had to somehow zoom in.
But whatever, why would firing Hoke in Novemeber (sic) save our recruiting class when NSD is in February? ( I think?)

The Kevin Summit part I thought was funny
|2 days 12 hours ago||I think this was pretty||
I think this was pretty obvious to anyone tuning in via TV at 3:30 and hearing the story. Did you really think it was an injury?
|2 days 13 hours ago||Things better change really||
Things better change really fast or the Rutgers game could be really ugly
|2 days 13 hours ago||In hindsight||
In hindsight all the warning signs were there after the Kansas State game. It's really too bad it had to get to this point. If Hoke wasn't DBs handpicked guy he might have been gone then.
His 3 year run wasn't much different than RRs other than he inherited a better roster situation and had a good first year.

I don't know who this guy is but have no argument with what he's saying

If that's true, and there is every reason to believe it is, we're in big trouble.
The play of the receivers was particularly poor, for whatever reason.
|2 days 16 hours ago||The difference was the||
The difference was the headshot Morris took. They didn't even appear to be checking him.
IMO that was one of the cheapest, dirtiest shots I've seen in college football in a while.
|2 days 16 hours ago||Everything changed for me||
Everything changed for me today. That was absolutely stunning to watch. I knew Hoke was stubborn but this takes it to a new level. Gardner should have been in early in the 3rd quarter at the latest, before Morris got hurt. After he was hurt it became inexplicable.
I would be okay with firing him now regardless of the impact on recruiting. The only thing worse than recruits watching this would be to watch it and then see nothing done about it.

I'm all for it but think a plane trailing a banner has more staying power.
