but he used "dominate" twice, once correctly, once incorrectly.

The Donnie Darko Bunny really would be the perfect mascot for Michigan Football.

Randy Edsall has lost 20 players?! I'd be curious to see what their "Decimated Defense/Offense" breakdown looks like, that's bananas.

Gerald Ford did many unforgivable things.

I think that Hoke has done a good enough job that it's forced me to re-evaluate what makes a head coach "good." During the search, I was hoping we'd land another Rich Rodriguez/Urban Meyes "genius" coach who creatively innovates and has the potential to bring teams to the top. Hoke, by his own admission is not that coach, but he hired two coordinators whohave unleashed some truly creative playcalls and assembled a staff that by all appearances has really great cohesion. He himself makes intelligent decisions in-game and seems to manage his coordinators successfully without micromanaging them.
As cheesy as it sounds, Hoke's very love for Michigan seems to be the single greatest asset, as I think that more than anything is creating a lot of positive energy around the program that excites the current players, future recruits, and all of the fans. It will take three or four years to see what Hoke's true legacy as a Michigan coach will be, but at this point I'm really hoping he is able to fill the icon void left by Bo, and don't see any reason why that's not possible if things keep going on the upward trajectory they appear to be.

They just lived through Luke Fickell being head coach.

Epic Hoke Love.

You sir, have hit gold. Cue the "Oh How I Ate, Ohio State" chariots.

I remember thinking this very thing while watching the game. His defense seemed really well-coached and played impressively for much of the game, and he generally seems to have his act together in a way that's miles above the Zooker. I bet he'd be a really good candidate.

What you're feeling is premature enlightenment.

I disagree. I think much of the media, notably Adam Ritternberg with ESPN, is as vastly disenchanted with Dantonio-discipline as we are.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Like the commentators said,||
Like the commentators said, that play left receivers wide open in the endzone. If the offensive line had picked up the blitz, that was a touchdown and Borges is a hero. Hindsight is always 20/20.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||There were a lot of issues||
There were a lot of issues with dropped balls early, but the biggest issue there was the proverbial battle in the trenches. I thought Denard did pretty well considering the pass protection issues. The really puzzling thing was how poor our defensive line played.
I think we were all expecting a few losses at some point, so I am not super surprised by this. After any loss, it is easy to look at negatives and mistakes, but I still think this is a 9 win team, based on overall season performance to date. Morbid though it may seem, I am sort of excited to see how Hoke and company bounce back after a defeat.
|3 years 41 weeks ago||Am I crazy or is the DSR for||
Am I crazy or is the DSR for this game incorrect? As I understand it, the formula is DO + CA/All throws except PR and SCR. That would give a ratio of 16/26, or 61%, not 59%. What am I missing here?

Whoa. WatersDemos is an MSU fan? Did not know that somehow. He is one of my favorite posters. Good man.

That is fair, it should be a close game, and with the home field advantage MSU should be a slight edge.

This thread becomes more entertaining when I imagine that you, 03 Blue 07, and MGoShirtless are all the same person, kind of like the three-headed knight creature from Monty Python.

Last one is a common photoshop meme. The kid is actually watching an EPL game, and has since been photoshopped into just about every jersey you could think of.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||I have wondered a similar||
I have wondered a similar thing myself. I'm inclined to instinctively say no, but it'll be interesting to see what the offense looks like in 5 or so years when Morris is at the helm.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||NO. No no no no no. No. No.||
NO. No no no no no. No. No. Worst idea ever.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Agreed. My younger brother||
Agreed. My younger brother attends there, and I have kept track of them more than I usually would. They were competitive against Illinois, and to a lesser extent against us as well. The insane reporter from Kalamazoo who said Alex Carder was the best quarterback in the state is still insane, but man, not by much. They should roll through most of the MAC schedule at the rate they are going.
