damn, and all this time I thought...
|1 day 7 hours ago||He has enormous potential but||
He has enormous potential but as it stands now he won't be going at the top of the draft, but maybe he leaves anyway if that's where his head is. Maybe someone takes him thinking they can improve his technique and concentration.
If you saw Odel Beckham's catch last night, that's what the NFL wants in a receiver with a high pick.
|1 day 12 hours ago||If you wanted to make a case||
If you wanted to make a case for keeping Hoke, which I'm not trying to do, this would be it. That he's one year away and the last few years have been a perfect storm of inexperience (mainly O-line), bad luck, injury, and whatever else. That combined with the improved academic situation leads me to think someone may push to keep him one more year. If that were to happen you'd be looking at a long offseason of unrest, and a total disaster if next year doesn't go well.
I think they just need a different coach who really understands what it takes to function at this level and next year could be special.
A few years back everyone scoffed at the notion of a Randy Edsall here. I don't think there's any question we were outcoached Saturday and that should tell you all you need to know. There are many coaches who could be more effective here right away.

2015 was always going to be the year the roster matured. Question is are they willing to risk wasting that by keeping Hoke and crew. At this point recruiting will be secondary to making sure there is effective coaching for what should be a very good 2-deep.
For right now I just want the best coach for the players here now.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Thing is we're not being||
Thing is we're not being overpowered by anyone. It's all about turnovers, dropped passes, blown coverages etc. It's not whether we can stand up to them, it's whether we can play without those mistakes. That of course is highly questionable but if it were to happen we'd have a game.

My comments were predicated on him not being here - I don't see a scenario where he wlll be after yesterday.
|2 days 7 hours ago||He's right about one thing -||
He's right about one thing - we're at the bottom - and heading up from here before too long. This is going to be a small class. I'll take the youth we have now and a few recruits that want to play here and be part of a resurgence.
If this guy wants to put out stuff like that he doesn't fit the bill - let's get a few Dileos and Gallons who can catch, and some Jake Ryans, and quality coaching.
|2 days 23 hours ago||Try and imagine this game||
Try and imagine this game with Dileo and Gallon as the go-to receivers and a big part of the problem becomes obvious. Gardner isn't perfect but these receivers have to be able to make some plays. The drops on easy chances are game killers.

Tough it out.
Those who stay will be champion.

It was pretty painful. It could have just said if you don't read anything we say you'll pretty much know as much as anyone. You'll also save yourself a lot of time and be less confused.

Does anyone know if any kind of deal has ever been presented like this in CFB or NFL?
Never, at least you're original

The Maximus thing from Davis was really old by the 2nd or 3rd time. After 20 it was ridiculously annoying.

I'm thinking we'll have a running game and that should keep us out of the high-pressure 3rd downs and diastrous interceptions. Losing Diggs is really big for them.
I'm driving from Connecticut for this so really need a win.

I don't feel one iota of bad for him. Regardless of his path to get here he's exceptionally fortunate and priviliged to have what he has. If this report is any way accurate he just beat up a woman in a hotel room.

Where's that schematic advantage when you need it?

I guess you must be young and awesome.
Usually if you're the only one who feels a certain way about something it's kind of a red flag, unless of course you're just better and smarter than everyone else, but I'm not getting that vibe from you.
|1 week 4 days ago||15 years is never going to||
15 years is never going to happen. 10 is probably possible if it was a sure thing like Harbaugh but there's only a couple of those. Anyone else you'd have to think it's 5, maybe 7.
In't ND still paying CW something? Talk about pain.
|1 week 4 days ago||It's one thing to talk about||
It's one thing to talk about it but announcing on twitter in advance that you'll be talking about it for 10 specific minutes may be bordering on the ridiculous. Does he really have anything new to say?

I'm glad Schlissel is the President. Football may still suck for now but pieces like this reflect very well on UM as a whole. Better than having a President hoping the coach doesn't fire him. Talk about insanity.
Not saying keep him or not but Hoke has not been a total failure if you count improved academic performance

This is a very interesting, fascinating, new original analysis. Thank you for your efforts.

Coincidentally Eminem and Rihanna were just the closing performers on HBOs Concert for Valor. Metallica anchored the middle. It was a good show.

Thanks for the newsflash...nice to have daily refreshers on the most ridiculous stories

You know it's funny, I've thought about it on occasion watching the motion player cross in front of the QB, but in all my many years of watching football that was absolutely a first. And it wasn't even close. it didn't just glance off him because the timing was slightly off, it hit him full on. If they were trying to snap it to him they couldn't have timed it better.

I don't think it's just lack of speed. I saw a lot of hesitation and indecision today. How much is coaching, the players themselves, experience, or some combination it's hard to say. I think this team does have speed, it just isn't showing up.

No idea if we offered him. Just trying to have some fun here.

And to think we offered Fitzgerald before Hoke. Wow. We got the smart one.

He'll get paid but the biggest thing that will follow him around is the sexual assault case. That could have more legs
|2 weeks 3 days ago||He's good at football...and||
He's good at football...and smart enough to be at a place where he can get away with anything
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Have you considered...||
...I can't think of a more plausible explanation.
Have you considered that he has somewhat of a record now of playing poorly in first halfs? Did you see the ND game?
