|3 hours 19 min ago||I agree whole-heartedly||
I renewed my season tickets this year with little thought. I support my alma mater regardless of coach/AD/play on the field because I support the hard work of the players and what the University of Michigan stands for. The Hoke's and Brandon's of the world will come and go, but the Michigan name will stay strong. And as Bo said, no one is above the team (or the University).
It would take serious financial event or a Penn State like scandal for me to think twice about renewing my tickets. But that's just me. I totally understand why others would think twice and not renew (student or otherwise) and I wouldn't fault them for that.

The issue is not of people showing up, the issue is of people not buying tickets. I'll give you that we had attendance issues after our successful 2011 season, but they were still buying tickets (just not showing up).
As the previous poster said, this comes down to performance on the field, plain and simple. Its abysmal, it truly is. And this is not a Hoke vs. RR thing. Its a decade long pattern of coaching eptitude, losing to our rivals, and being an also-ran that has gotten us to this point.

But what current would we use if both AC and DC ended?

For the input. I think it should be made clear that no one should be putting any failure, blown play, sack, etc on the kids. Those kids fucking work their tails off both on and off the field. The school makes millions off their backs, and those kids don't see their fair share (yeah, I know, a different topic for a different time). Any ounce of criticism from this board should in no way be directed towards the players. The coaches? Different story. These guys are paid millions for a reason. And that comes with some baggage, including being responsible for the overall success of the program.

Listen, I get it, you love Hoke. But you are letting your love for coach clap hands cloud your objectivity.
|1 week 2 days ago||Fair enough||
|1 week 2 days ago||Well in this case...||
...this particular white man has it bad because he is white (allegedly, I have to say that for legal purposes).
|1 week 2 days ago||Because this is the discussion board...||
...on a blog. That's what it's there for and that's what we do. And this is the proper forum for discuss opinions and make assumption.
|1 week 2 days ago||That quote wouldn't hold up in court||
The police are investigating if this is a hate crime for a reason...
|1 week 2 days ago||Hey man, I'm with you...||
...but there is nothing remotely close to objective to state that Hoke has the ability to "shut anyone up". If there is something I'm missing that proves that he can get it done, please let me know. I need some hope :(
|1 week 2 days ago||But, but, but...||
....this is Michigan #fergodsakes
....Hoke "gets it"
....kids didnt exceute, that's not on Hoke
....Hoke would walk to Ann Arbor
....Hoke is a Michigan man
....Hoke is a good guy
Have they not factored in these variables!!!!!???? Well...?!?!

Don't care. We are a basketball school.

This isn't even a likely scenario. They do not pay that much for first year associates, even with bonus. Comp is good no doubt.
|1 week 4 days ago||Yea, I know how you feel||
When black people feel offended about things, the natural thing I think is that "black people fucking suck"
|1 week 4 days ago||Example please||
I'm just curious what craptastic politically laced example you bring up.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I like the list...||
...but putting Amaker in the top 5 is a stretch IMO. Replace Amaker with Orr and maybe move him up to 4.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Then replace "union" with "union dues"||
The rest still applies.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Tuition may be sunk||
But room and board is not.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||I'm curious how this will work...||
...in right to work states. Illinois is not, but if this is implemented in states that are (I.e. Michigan), I wonder how those more "liberated" type football players would react to being required to join a union in college. They think they feel powerless without a union, just wait until they are required to join one.

|4 weeks 4 days ago||I remember that year so well||
That was my freshman year...lived in East Quad. Anyway, that Michigan team was the most frustrating team to watch. They beat Arizona earlier that year (yea, the Arizona with Miles Simon and Mike Bibby that won the NC that year) and got to as high as 4 in the polls. Then...meltdown.
I remember that we were a bubble team and at least had to have a good showing in our last game of the season against OSU (the selection show was about 1 hour after the game). We were down big in that game and had this amazing comeback to take it to overtime. We won, but the selection committee has already decided to leave us out of the tourney. It was a kick in the undercarriage to say the least.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||How well did he execute?||
That's really the only true determination of success in Hoke's eyes.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Malik Hairston||
Did he commit to us yet?
|6 weeks 2 days ago||That's racist.gif||
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Does that even matter?||
I guess it's cool to be racist...as long as it's against whites.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||You made my point||
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Unintelligent assumption #1||
You got it made simply because you are white.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Ok then...||
...imagine the outcries in the 80s, 90s, and now.
