Dave Brandon will evaluate after the season, and yes that means after we get drilled in our bowl game to finish 6-7 - when all the good coaching candidates will already be off the board.
|7 hours 40 min ago||So what now?||
We put our Michigan gear on every Saturday and take our beatings. That is life, but we get back every Sunday after the beating.
|7 hours 41 min ago||Yes.||
Everything was peachy after the Sugar Bowl win with no rumors, fighting, etc. etc. All you have to do is win, and that shouldn't be that difficult at a place like Michigan.
|16 hours 36 min ago||Funchess.||
He'd be a top 10 pick if he could consistently catch the football.
|16 hours 48 min ago||Exit...||
Exit Brady Hoke, enter Kliff Kingsbury.
|16 hours 50 min ago||Lol.||
Is it bad I'd envy to be in Notre Dame's shoes right now?
|16 hours 51 min ago||Hey guys.||
Just stopping by to say every team that played in the B1G today won - besides us, but that's okay since we were playing a NFL factory like Utah.
|16 hours 55 min ago||Morris.||
His issue doesn't seem to be accuracy (as recruitniks suggested) as much as decision making. He has such a strong arm that he basically forces everything.
|20 hours 38 min ago||Malzone.||
He'll probably start in 2015 - not that I even want to think about Michigan football's direction.
|2 days 2 hours ago||13-1||
The Michigan football team is going 13-1 this season, and they ain't a damn thing Kyle Whittingham, Mark Dantonio, or Urban Meyer can do about it. /s (only in my grammar, not the 13-1 thing).
|2 days 2 hours ago||Give Brandon a raise.||
I think he does a helluva job especially with having to babysit most of the old timers.
|2 days 2 hours ago||We are going to crush them.||
Just to make us all feel stupid for even doubting the Hoke-ster.
|2 days 8 hours ago||The Utes?||
What's a UTE? In the words of Judge Chamberlain in 'My Cousin Vinny'. GO BLUE; BEAT THE UTES!
|3 days 4 hours ago||That's pretty cool.||
Wish I could make it up to A2 this weekend. Nice little entertainment to start the day and **hopefully** some good football being played.
|3 days 5 hours ago||No.||
I don't think he'll "lose his job for losing to Utah." If he loses to Utah, he WILL lose to Michigan State, Ohio State, and at least one more Big Ten team because Utah, in all honesty, in not that talented. That puts him at 7-5 - best case - which is not good enough for him to keep his job, IMO.
|3 days 5 hours ago||No.||
If he loses, it's the beginning of the end, and we all know it. If he wins, we were supposed to anyways.
|3 days 6 hours ago||In Buckeye terms:||
Carlos Hyde definitely agrees.
|3 days 7 hours ago||Moral of the story:||
Be a terrible football player and get the boot from Urbs. Be a star player and hit your girlfriend or have an addiction to ecstasy and "you deserve another chance and support from the program."
|4 days 4 hours ago||Scout team RB>||
I think we have the best one in the country, and it's not even close.
|4 days 4 hours ago||Man, that will be fun.||
Jim Harbaugh vs. Kliff Kingsbury. I cannot wait.
|5 days 6 hours ago||Oversigning.||
I agree it plays a big role, but 1.) The NCAA does not care. 2.) The SEC sends two times the underclassmen to the NFL that the B1G does. So while it may not look good to sign 25 every single year, it doesn't look all that bad when you think that the Alabama's and LSU's typically send three of four underclassmen per team, respectively, each year to the league.
If you're asking me would I rather have Nick Saban oversigning and winning or Brady Hoke signing fifteen/year and losing, I'll take Nick Saban at $10 million dollars/year any day.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Somewhere.........||
"Lloyd Carr's Michigan" is smiling.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Yep.||
I just moved from Murfreesboro to Brentwood/Cool Springs. I'll be here until at least August 2015.
|5 days 8 hours ago||Walmart Wolverine Mantra.||
Born in Ypsi, relocated to Tennesseee at the age of three months (THANKS GM), a MTSU Blue Raider graduate, but an entire spare bedroom in my apartment (I'm only 23) devoted to Michigan. I go to Ann Arbor twice a year and any bowl game located from Louisiana to Florida. Two jerseys, sixteen "M" shirts (yes, I counted), two pairs of "M" shorts, two pairs of "M" joggers, three sweaters and two "M" jackets in the closet.
I've had to endure Tennessee and SEC fans my entire life, which admittedly is probably just as bad as you having to endure with the two Spartan fans you probably know. I could not afford out of state tuition, so Michigan was never an option for me. My mom (who lives in Lansing now) has pictures of me in 1994 in a #21 Michigan uniform.
I'm so thankful for my mom and dad raising me right and teaching me what a great institution the University of Michigan is. I'm thankful they instilled a tradition of watching Michigan every Saturday (even when we had to order Michigan vs. Purdue in the 90's and early 2000's for $4.99 because ESPN was playing Kentucky vs. Vanderbilt in our area.) No Spartan will ever degrade me with a label just because I was raised right and they weren't, especially when I know more about THEIR team than they probably do.
Go blue today; go blue tomorrow; go blue forever.
|6 days 1 hour ago||B1G.||
The Big Ten has been atrocious as of late, but it has not always been that way. The SEC hates the Big Ten, because the Big Ten was VERY competitive with them through 2007. Herbstreit mentioned in the offseason how the B1G actually had a leg up on the SEC in the ten years prior to 2007.
I believe we even had a diary by LSA not to long ago that showed how competitive the conference was compared to the south. The SEC became dominant because of one reason: coaching. The Midwest coaching tree (Saban, Miles, Pinkel, Bielema, Mullen, James Franklin, Kevin Sumlin, and many up and coming assistants) embarked on a journey through the South while the Big Ten coaches were getting older. It has left the Big Ten with terrible coaching ever since.
The Big Ten would be fine right now if Bielema, Miles, Meyer, Sumlin, Franklin, Dantonio, Tressel (Illinois should seriously consider him after this season), and Greg Schiano were all still pacing a B1G sideline. Instead we've had to watch MAC/WAC level guys like Brady Hoke, Danny Hope, Gary Anderson, Kyle Flood, and Tim Beckman lose all respectability for an entire conference.
The Big Ten can get back to elitism by getting coaches back in the Midwest (where they would've never left had they been paid better). A league with Jim Harbaugh, Jim Tressel, Urban Meyer, James Franklin, Mark Dantonio, and a guy like Dan Mullen going to Nebraska would go a LONG WAY to getting the conference back to respectability.

I wouldn't really consider them a "cupcake." They win nine games a year and would probably win the Big Ten West this season.
|1 week 1 day ago||How long?||
How long until players in the NFL start saying "Rich Rod's Michigan" like Braylon did with "Lloyd Carr's Michigan"?
|1 week 1 day ago||Don't delete.||
It's thread worthy after a half like that.
|1 week 1 day ago||Fire them.||
Fire them all. Everybody.

The kid had the opportunity to get out of Detroit and make something of himself. Instead, he gets in trouble [again] and will probably be playing football at Wayne State (if they even take him.) It sounds like he would have problems no matter where he went, but I definitely don't see his problems going away with him staying in Detroit.
