Agree that once they start playing the rankings are essentially meaningless, and can be actually misleading with regard to actual talent levels.
It's certainly interesting when you have Derrick Green (who I like) as the top RB in the country and a guy like Paul James a walkon. It's also an example of how some areas in the country are underscouted, and others overscouted to the point where things can get pretty skewed.

I'm in the camp that sees no risk in giving Nuss a chance right now. The impact on recruiting is already done as everyone assumes Hoke won't be back next year. I do think Hoke is a very loyal and ethical person who loves Michigan and would do whatever he could to hold the recruiting class together regardless of what happens. Maybe there's a place for him.

old news...thought you were going to say he committed elsewhere...not that he won't at some point

Pretty lame to be asking those questions of these guys. What's the point?
|1 day 2 hours ago||I didn't say that was||
I didn't say that was preferred, we may have no choice for a while if we can't realistically pull them in. We can also focus on a few recruits with maybe fewer stars but more potential to grow into the kind of player we need, ala Beilein

Brian Cook now leading the charge - stream working

stream just came on but choppy...actually choppy is an understatement...more like intermittent still pics
|1 day 4 hours ago||I'm not getting the stream||
I'm not getting the stream either, maybe overloaded. Says their last stream was the AA mayoral debate so that says something about priorities anyway
|1 day 4 hours ago||Did anyone actually organize||
Did anyone actually organize anything or just a bunch of people showing up?
|1 day 6 hours ago||We may be heading for a||
We may be heading for a period where there's less emphasis on falling all over these top recruits and more on developing the current players and program to where they should be.
|1 day 6 hours ago||You see guys on the sidelines all||
You see guys on the sidelines all the time an hour after blowing out a knee...that wasn't it.

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:
|1 day 12 hours 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.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Part of that was against PSU,||
Part of that was against PSU, so yeah.
Can we discuss basketball instead?
|2 days 4 hours 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.
|2 days 4 hours 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.
|2 days 6 hours 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.
|2 days 7 hours 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.
|2 days 7 hours ago||You have got to be freakling||
You have got to be freaking kidding. Great let's further embarass the school and program.
|2 days 9 hours 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

Maybe he can coach from the box?
|3 days 9 hours 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.
|3 days 10 hours 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.
