"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

If he just goes a little easier on that pick play they don't call it and this is a different outcome. That's where you need more of an "influence" block, and the play was going to still be open.

That slant pass Golson just threw was right out of our game. At least we know it is wasn't just us.
|1 day 10 hours ago||The discussion (please see||
The discussion (please see the OP) had to do with his actions on the sideline during the game. I made no comment regarding his actions in the days after that game. It's fine to disagree, just try to stay on point, or make a separate point.
I'm not defending anyone or excusing anything.

That sounds just as catchy as the OP but also just as misguided. Any knowledgeable professional that's commented on this has stressed that recognizing concussion symptoms is not the coach's responsibility. You can't rely on someone who's focus should be entirely on the game to stop and make a diagnosis. Whatever you think of Hoke he's engaged with the players and does not in any way resemble what the OP is comparing him to. Be critical but keep it real.

The only similarity between this little story and Hoke is the headset, that's it. Whatever you think of Hoke you can't say he isn't engaged with the players during the game.
This is pretty weak.

Now it's in bold - I guess that settles that.

Who exactly firmly established that? This is in danger of becoming a textbook example of the pitfalls of "group think".
|4 days 12 hours ago||Please make it happen this||
Please make it happen this week - would love to see a DB firing all over the weekend's college football. Would be a great antidote to the recent negative press, though Hoke will look like more of a goner than ever.

My biggest fear is not that they will throw a long pass for a TD, but that there might be a play or series of plays with pass interference or other penalties that gives them a first down. PI isn't a spot foul in college but a couple of them could have gotten them in FG range. We have the ball to start the half, just get off the field.

So if something hurts you shouldn't try to play a sport? You'd make a great helicopter parent.

Did you by any chance catch the 2011 Gator Bowl? We've known about him for a while now.

Here's the thing. I watched the MSU-Purdue game, and of course the M-PSU win. If you were going to be purely objective there is little reason to believe Michigan has no chance against MSU. I know we have all the mantras here about this and that, but the proof is in the visuals. We can beat Sparty - it will take the D effort you saw tonight and more but it can happen.
With an improving O-Line it gets more likely every day.

Didn't bother me in the least...hence I clicked on it. It's the timing - just give it up for one night.

Lighten up. I think everyone, including Hoke, knows he's gone. Can we please enjoy this?

Power running and victory formation to end the game. Haven't seen a lot of that lately against quality opponents. This was a good night to put it mildly.

Regardless of what happens coach-wise, this O-Line is going to be good next year. So is the defense.
|1 week 1 day ago||That was beyond huge - good||
That was beyond huge - good for Hoke - he looked like a guy with the world just lifted off his shoulders. I'm sure he knows he's likely gone but there's some life. Both the D and the O-Line got better as this game went on. They were able to run when PSU knew they were going to. That is no small change.
