|2 days 21 hours ago||Does Harbaugh have his name on a building?||
As an FYI, neither of my sources is any Harbaugh
|2 days 21 hours ago||To be totally honest||
I have two really good inside sources. One source has his family name on one of the buildings on campus (most of you know the building). Last year, they told me that a sizable portion of donors were getting "antsy" with Brady Hoke, enough so that Brandon started putting out feelers for a new coach before this season. (in a similar fashion he did for Nuss). I told the board this, and I got negged to Mexico City (not quite Bolivia). According to them, Brandon's leash was getting short and he ABSOLUTELY could not mess up the next hire (if it came to that). One guy told me about a week before DB's "resignation" that he was going to be let go in the next couple weeks. What I'm trying to say is that these guys know some juicy tidbits and they have been right about several things in the past. I trust them.
So, what are they telling me now regarding our current situation. Bubcus! One guy says he doesn't know much, and the other clearly knows something but won't tell me.

Have you not seen the numberous objective analyses regarding the development of our players? Some of this coming from NFL scouts. I'll give you the cliff notes' version: Hoke and co. are doing a lackluster job developing talent. Plain and simple. This is not my analysis, but it doesn't take a football expert to see the "fruits" (or lack thereof) of Hoke's player development. Sure, there are some nice examples of positive player development, but the question is if Hoke is getting the most out of them. I think objective observers are saying "no!"
"I hate this meme that this board keeps saying. It is hurting recruiting, other coaches can point recruits to this board and say Michigan fans don't think thier coaches can develop talent"
Do you really think the opinions and analyses by posters on this board has any impact on recruits? I'm confident it doesn't. And if it does, it negligible.
"As fans of Michigan we should do our part to make the team better and stop tearing it down."
My job as a fan is not to make the team play better (at least not in a direct manner), that is the job of the coaches and the players. My job as a fan is to show up and cheer like heck for them to win.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Another key question in this event is...||
...how will it impact recruiting. We are already losing some decent talent for very legitimate reasons (I.e. Hoke's ability to develop talent, etc). Will making this type of run at the end of the season change the general gestalt amongst our potential recruits, despite having Hoke remain as head coach?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Well||
I don't think DB had much to do with the performance of the team on the field. That's all on Hoke. Then again, Hoke likes to deflect blame from time to time, so he might say something to blame DB.

Then it's more funner
|5 weeks 1 day ago||These are interesting questions||
I've had this discussion with lots of people lately, and since its pretty much a forgone conclusion that Hoke is done, these discussions have been meaningful lately.
It is my belief, a good method to gauge the abilities of a coach-in-termoil is to see where he goes next. Great coaches do a bad job from time to time, and hence may have a bad head coaching stop somewhere (i.e. RR at UM). Over the years, coaches gain an indentity amongst the football luminaries that is more or less like a tattoo.
With that said, I don't think Hoke ends up in a power five head coaching position ever again. Simply put, he's not built for it. I think he goes back to the MAC. Maybe a DC in a power conference.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||I'll add||
I got negged pretty bad when I stated my preseason prediction: we would have 5, maybe 6 loses. My rationale was not steeped in sound mathematical analysis of the OL development or the Nuss impact. I predicted we would suck mostly because I thought Hoke was simply a poor coach for big time college football. And I have thought like that for years. I caught A LOT of heat for that, especially with some of my more connected Michigan network who WERE 100% behind Hoke at that time.
Vindication can be bittersweet.
