Wow, you're right. He threw for just shy of 4,500 yards with 38 TDs.

Funny that Speight is mentioned in the second link but O'Korn was the champ.

Dumb question...why was Guzan starting over Howard for the rest of the tourney? Is he simply better? I don't follow soccer much and thought Howard was as good as they get. Is he over the hill?

Didn't last year teach us that this kid is at the very worst a placeholder right now?

All those guys did pretty much get their ass kicked by OSU lol
|1 day 20 hours ago||And how do you think Hoke||
And how do you think Hoke feels today about his time at UM? Greed is a powerful motivator, but driving a historic football program that he seemingly cares a lot about further into the ground might outweigh that.
And I'm sorry, but I don't care about other P5 programs and who they hire. Hoke had one thing right...this is Michigan and they deserve the best candidate available.

How are the only two Welshman we know both named Bale?

Since when is failing in a spectacular fashion a good move for someone and their family? Go back and look at the old threads about the hire. We all knew he was doomed.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Do you remember how irate the||
Do you remember how irate the fanbase was with the hire? We all knew it was coming. But then he somehow rattled off a BCS win in his first year so we thought we were mistaken. Then Denard and Mike Martin left and the wheels fell off.
|1 day 21 hours ago||Well, it's probably not||
Well, it's probably not kid-friendly but the Jack Daniels distillery tour is pretty cool. We went to Nashville on my bachelor party and had a great time. I just wish I remembered more of the weekend...
|1 day 21 hours ago||I'll never forget watching||
I'll never forget watching Mike Williams try to defend Juice on the zone read. There have been very few times that I thought I could do a better job than the UofM player on the field. That was one of them.
|1 day 22 hours ago||No, that's bullshit. Like I||
No, that's bullshit. Like I said, if it's something you care about, you find the best person for the job. Your point is true in general, but this is Michigan fergodsakes.
But I will admit coaching is one job where you HAVE to have an ego to succeed. If you don't think you can perform better than anyone, then you should find a different profession. So I'll give Hoke that.
|1 day 22 hours ago||The thing I still can't wrap||
The thing I still can't wrap my head around is the housing market out here. You have it worse than I do up in the Bay Area, but even in LA the cost of housing does not at all match up with the pay bump you get by taking a job here.
Maybe WolvinLA can chime in, but I don't understand how people (especially from the Midwest) can settle down here. There are a ton of great things about CA, but I see it as more of a pitstop than a destination.
|1 day 22 hours ago||I don't really understand why||
I don't really understand why I'm getting bashed here. I get that I'm "humble-bragging" but my original point was that I don't think people should automatically take a job for the pay raise if the company they're working for is something they care about and they don't think they're the best for it. And I think Brady Hoke was in that situation.

Am I right in assuming you're an engineer? Like I said, I went from being an engineer to being a manager (too) quickly. And I can't stand the BS I have to deal with as a result. After this program wraps up I'm definitely going back to engineering because like you said, money isn't everything.

I'm one of the few people that prefers Ann Arbor to SoCal, but to each their own.

Said the one aerospace engineer to the other? Lol.
I moved to California as a contractor and they forced me to convert to a direct hire, then promoted me twice. I feel like I'm a 30-year-old doing a 45-year-old's job. Most of my employees are older than me. I'm still uncomfortable about it, but I at least care about the job more than anyone else they would have hired. So I can understand how you feel.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Yeah, I moved to California||
Yeah, I moved to California last summer for a job, and then got promoted twice, and I didn't ask for either of them. I wasn't in a position to just take the layoff and roll the dice.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Well I'll agree with your||
Well I'll agree with your first two sentences.
I do feel that Hoke is a man of character who loves UM. I believe that he felt his #1 priority was mentoring kids and turning them into upstanding citizens. For that, I am thankful. But I also feel that shouldn't have been his top priority.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Does anyone here read the||
Does anyone here read the Bacon books? Harbaugh was ours for the taking in 2011 but Brandon instead hired someone that wouldn't outshine him.
|1 day 23 hours ago||I just took a promotion that||
I just took a promotion that I felt I was unqualified for because it was either that or I had to find a new job, and I was pretty upset about the situation. So no, I wouldn't have taken the job.
|1 day 23 hours ago||And by "we" you mean Dave||
And by "we" you mean Dave Brandon, right?
Let's be honest, we didn't whiff on anybody. If I recall correctly, when Hoke was hired, someone asked Les Miles how it felt to "never land his dream job." And his response was something to the effect of "Well, I'm not that old, am I?"
Dave Brandon thought he could coach the team through a head coach whose name was less known than his own. Unfortunately, he couldn't.

For someone who reads as much as you do, you should really try to stay up on current events.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Well it's at least better||
Well it's at least better than Greg Robinson's "bend-then-shatter" defense.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Are Michigan fans unique in||
Are Michigan fans unique in the fact that we have to wish everyone the best of luck until they play Michigan?
Sure, Hoke is a nice enough guy but I feel like he's somewhat of an asshole for even taking the job here considering how unqualified he was.
