I had the exact same reaction - not only the sentence structure but the questions themselves are pretty lame. Nuss handles it well.

Man I just hope PSU's O-line is as bad as you say. Rutgers was killing them.

I'd be very interested in your assessment of the coaching in tonight's Rutgers-PSU game vs where we are with Hoke. Win or lose that game had a certain dynamic that may or may not have been missing from our recent efforts.
Maybe we're there and will beat both those teams, but it sure will be interesting.

Normally I don't care about the whole headset thing but it seems like that's a situation where maybe you want to be controlling the dialog

Big win tomorrow and it's a whole new world.
Long, dark week is ending!

Even if you can justify the hiring (and I'm just playing devil's advocate) can you honestly draw much distinction between the end of Hoke's and RR's 3rd seasons? I know there are mitigating factors but they're probably a lot more similar than DB would like to admit.
One difference of course is RR bombed his first year, but what would have been RR's 4th year was a Hoke 1st year 11-2. In my mind to be credible Hoke has to duplicate that this year or we have a big problem.

It's about as good as it gets, especially compared to where we were 5 years ago - almost unbelievable. They make a good point regarding Beilein vs Izzo - relying on Top-50 talent vs. one-and-dones makes the program more stable and consistently excellent.
Now we just need football to step up.

But they're also going from 18 to 22yrs old so it's impossible to isolate the variables. Not saying S&C isn't a big part of it but how much is impossible to quantify.

IIRC they were also stiffened and possibly shrunk by being bloodied.

Not very different from most coaches, though he does tend the end of the curve. If he's wasting anyone's time they always have the option to ignore it.

I think the score was unfortunate but a winning streak will start Saturday and this will soon be a distant memory.
Keep your sunny side up.

Re: #4. On this I partially disagree in that I didn't think we came out flat. We looked pretty good to start then got stopped while in scoring range. What I thought was a mistake was trying the two field goals. ND was going to score in this game and we weren't going to beat them with field goals. Trying the second was especially frustrating after the first miss - just go for it down there.
You have to seize momentum on the road - maybe that's the problem that needs correcting.

Last year was year 1 for these new linemen, this is the start of year 2. I wasn't surprised they had some regression last year, and will have some bumps this year, but I would now expect the trend to be up generally. They had some good moments last night and some bad ones, but overall they were better than at Penn State last year and I'll take something from that.
|1 week 1 day ago||For me the bowl losses to||
For me the bowl losses to Miss State and Kansas State were both far worse then last night. It was ugly but we didn't just get run off the field. For most of the first half it looked like we were a couple of plays away from getting back in it. There were penalties and turnovers, but the real killer was the O-line imploding again. That could get better as the season goes on.
|1 week 1 day ago||I think if the right guy came||
I think if the right guy came in you could work around not having midwest ties as long as you recognized that necessity and engaged the right staff, alumni, former players etc. That didn't happen with RR, and probably all parties were at fault. Hoke has fixed that problem and now just has to deliver on the field. If he is replaced I would hope everyone would have learned their lessons from the RR experience and we can consider all available options.
|1 week 1 day ago||That may be true of Saban and||
That may be true of Saban and Meyer, but you've also got coaches like Sumlin, Strong, and even Sarkisian out there who might be good fits. I agree our standards are higher but don't think that explains what's been happening.
|1 week 1 day ago||When Carr retired Michigan||
When Carr retired Michigan had not gone outside to hire a football coach in 40 years, that was the essence of the problem. They tried something relatively radical in RR and there was an institutional freak-out. Then they overcompensated with what they perceived as a true "Michigan man".
These other schools had more of a history of changing coaches, went out and got the best one they could, and moved on with everyone behind him.

I may be way off base here but considering the look on Mrs. Harbaugh's face, and, well, seeing you, is there any chance you're inappropriately touching her?
|1 week 2 days ago||Assuming a change did become||
Assuming a change did become inevitable, what I fear the most likely scenario is this. The University President is way too new to fire either the AD or coach, Brandon pulls down the blinders for the next few months and generally drops increasingly out of sight as the situation is his making and he knows it, and we're left to slog through most or all of the rest of this season. It could turn around and this all becomes moot, or it could get depressingly uglier.
I'm not opposed to bold action right now but don't know who could or would initiate it.
|1 week 2 days ago||They can match||
They can match whatever Michigan could offer. They're heavily invested and won't be put off by the coach's salary. Sumlin won't come here.
|1 week 2 days ago||The big difference between||
The big difference between now and when we hired both RR and Hoke is, whoever were to come in now knows they're getting a roster loaded with talented upperclassmen. For the right coach it has success and upside written all over it. Hell if the dude puts on a headset he's immediately up a few notches to the masses.
