the kids will know we are still in their corner, which is more important to me than anything else. I will be there cheering them on.
|15 hours 16 min ago||wow||
No kidding...that's was pretty emotional. hard to tell if he is just a man not used to failure that its trying to convince everyone for some more time, or if he genuinely believes what he is saying.
I hope for the latter.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Exactly||
We are all human, we all fail. Hoke loves this place, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he doesn't break down completely WHEN (not if) they let him go.
He tried his hardest, the best way he knew how. I can say one thing with certainty...if there was ever a UM coach I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt put everything into his job that he could, it would be Brady Hoke. I feel terribly for him, but it is time. He will always be a part of the storied Michigan football program, and will always be my coach...he is not what this team or program needs right now.
|2 days 8 hours ago||I wish||
I still had your faith, but after this weekend I just cannot do it anymore. I love UM football and watching it like this is painful. Brady tried, sometimes things don't work out for a reason...I do not claim to know why. This is one of those things that will not work out.
We need to fix it before it gets worse...
|2 days 9 hours ago||I am done||
Support the kids, I do...but I cannot support this staff or the AD anymore. It is pure ignorance at this point.
YOU ARE DOWN 13 FUCKING POINTS AND YOU ARE JUST TAKING ALL THE FUCKING TIME IN THE WORLD TO GET THE PLAY OFF!!!!!?!?!?????!!!??
Incompetent is the only word fitting enough for that this football program has become, it is a shadow of the rich storied tradition that is Michigan football. I am a realistic fan, I know we are not in the golden age where I should just expect 11-12 wins every year, but I will be damned if I do not expect this team to show improvement every game and be competitive in every game they play. This is unrealistic with this staff.
I have been a supporter of hoke up until today, the buck stops here. I am done. I will not be attending any more games this season, I will not spend my hard earned money on anything that is branded by Michigan until this PROBLEM is fixed. I still support the players with all my heart, and feel for them that they do not have a more competent coaching staff directing and teaching them how to best use the God given talent and gifts that they have to their fullest extent.

Shane needs to play, devin cant get it done anymore.
|2 days 21 hours ago||yeah||
and Dres Anderson>Lockett from KSU last year...
Hold me someone...
|1 week 1 day ago||This game...||
Their D is not scary, Nate Orchard is really the only kid that is a possible major impact player for their D from what I have watched and heard.
If we DONT TURN THE GD BALL OVER, I think we win this game going away. If Funch is not back yet it may be a little bit more difficult just due to the relative inexperience at WR, but we should still win by more than a TD if we can run the ball effectively.
We need Raymon back, Dres Anderson is a beastly WR...kid slayed Stanford last year and I do not trust Countess in one on one coverage against him if we are playing the "Michigan Man Press D." I would be copiously more comfortable with Ray or Peppers, and have Countess in nickel or on their second option who is good, but a significant drop off from Dres. Playing Peppers on Dres scares me as well s bit, just due to the true frosh playing one on one with a experienced, dangerous, upperclass WR. Still take it over Countess though. I imagine we will be in nickel probably 80% of the game anyway.
Pass D has to show up big, and we need to limit the turnovers, pound the ball, and run the clock. If we can do those things I think we will have a great shot at a big win even without Funchess.

I haven't ever called for Morris to get more time in games, unless they are blowouts...but after seeing those two throws he made and that play with his legs...I wouldn't mind seeing him on the field a little more when Devin goes into his mental midget mode. Just give him some time to sit down and reset. We have already burned his RS again this year...I do not see why this is not an option the coaches look to? Maybe they do not want to start a QB controversy if Shane comes in and sets the world on fire, if so that is extremely lame sauce.
|1 week 2 days ago||is it just me||
Or does deving look a step slower than he has in years past?
|1 week 2 days ago||Yeah||
Same story year after year...
|1 week 2 days ago||I knew it||
Akron all over again, I love Hoke...but this seriously isn't even fun to watch anymore.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I think...||
Much of the angst on this thread right now comes from being spoon fed total BS by the program, media, etc about the players in the offseason and post beating basically a mediocre FCS school. Literally...nothing showed tonight that was mentioned in the offseason hype...nada, zilch.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||downward||
|2 weeks 2 days ago||literally about done||
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I love||
how the coaches blow smoke up our asses all offseason and now in the season about changing the d...press coverage...bla bla bla. nothing.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||so||
I thought we fired al borges?

This is the stuff that makes me believe Hoke will succeed, somehow.
He is too good of a person not too, it would just be wrong. He is an awesome person.
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I agree||
I just have to be cautiously optimistic at this point, ya know?
|13 weeks 5 days ago||have to agree||
with all that has happened recently...
|13 weeks 5 days ago||I want to be excited..||
I really do...but there is just too much time with what has happened in recent memory still looming.
|14 weeks 14 hours ago||um||
essien and prince boateng out and Alexi still predicts a 1-1 draw. If that happens US soccer needs to give JK the kiffin treatment.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||brazil||
totally overlooking one of the most offensively talented teams in this tournament.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||so hyped||
This is the greatest event in sports, and I cannot wait for it to kick off!!! Just wish USA had some more promise. I am first generation German american though...so my backup plan isnt looking too shabby!
Perfect way to sum up WC viewed by Americans...
Kasey Keller says Euros say to him, “(Americans) invent a sport, you’re the only one who plays it, and you call yourselves world champions.""

Porto Alegre...best city in Brazil, yes better than Rio.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||OMG||
"And after some time to think about it (I seem to recall calling the Ryan move "pure nonsense" on twitter when it was announced), I see the coaches' point."
|16 weeks 19 hours ago||Yeah||
I don't watch tv unless it's sports haha so I have no idea what that is about.
