Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

My cousin had never been to a Michigan game so I decided to take him, in order to show the glory that is (well, was) Michigan Football. I get tickets once a year from a coworker who had season tickets. As much as we talked football, I figured it was criminal of me not to expose him. he was a student, and didnt really have the funds at the time to do it himself
We were probably about the 10 yard line, corner end zone, Home side. we were down about 10 rows from the exit, so we decided to walk up to the exit and watch the last play from there in order to leave quickly. We were standing right next to 3 psu fans
Pass is up, caught, game over. As our opposing fans are holding their heads in disbelief, we say "Have a safe trip home fellas," and proceed to walk out with the most satisfied and mildly arrogant smiles on our faces you could ever imagine.
My cousin is still appreciative til this day.

look, I can't recall specifically what I read. but IIRC there were several positive reports of him being out there on the recruiting trail and at least 2 that said a couple kids liked him. is that groundbreaking. no. but for a guy with his first college experience, it's a good start.
thing is, during this run up to nsd, I didn't expect to hear anything about Jay doing much. Jim could have easily said hey you get started with the 2016 kids, we'll handle 2015, however realistic or unrealistic that is. but the f fact I've seen his name out there more than the other assistant coaches, to me, means he's at least doing alright.
now if that's unsatisfactory for you then I'm sorry, you're reading too much into it
|17 weeks 2 days ago||this aint my first rodeo||
Been a lurker around this blog for a long time before I even made an account. I've navigated the waters through many a message board/forum/blog. there's always a trial and error approach when starting to post on each one. Skin is plenty thick

yeah, I got no problem with people bitching, but I did have to edit because I thought it was an interesting article too. And I'd actually like to see if anyone has an opinion on it or something to add.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||smh||
well since you wanna expand that statement way past where it should have been taken, lemme explain:
how is commenting on how he did well ths past week celebrating recruiting chops. he has no recruiting chops. he hasnt recruited anyone. but from what we've read over the past week or so, these things might be a sign of future success. If he turns out to be an ace recruiter, then we can look back at this time and say he got off to a good start. tis all
(The OP was loing enough, did I really have to explain that)

information wasnt the point. was laying out my reason for posting the article. It got wordy, but hey, I'm a rookie. It happens
|17 weeks 3 days ago||agreed but, I can understand||
agreed but, I can understand the concern. It comes form shellshock related to the past season and the other coaching searches.
but realistically, what a place to have your first position coaching job. He's got a hell of a staff to learn from. This should be great for him

Couple this with the Harbaugh bump, and throw in Mattison staying on. Not to mention Possibly getting Marrow from Kentucky. This recruiting crew could be dangerous

Anybody would leave when the NCAA comes with sanctions
and besides, Pete had no ties to USC, just success. JH had a great career as a player and he and his father have very loyal ties to Bo. He is sewn into the fabric of the football program
I dont thnink you can compare the 2 situations. It is much more likely he stays, but I wouldnt be surprised nor mad if he ends up leaving at some point, as long as he has success here

after the way they covered this coaching search, I made the decision to donate to the website after the holidays. It's proven itself as a legitimate news source and not just a "blog" (not that it hadn't done so already). i mean, to have approximately 2 weeks where we knew there was a great possibility JH would be coach, while the national media had no clue, is priceless. I would talk to others who were less knowledgable about the search with a sly smile on my face because I knew their skepticism was completely misguided. i encourage others to donate and show respect to the work these guys are putting in. The way theyve covered this has moved me out of lurker status and it feels good to be a contributor and a michigan fan

Thanks for this. i ran across this stuff after sundays game looking for the Balke and York press conference but forgot to watch it.
Very well done
Especially liked how they edited him as a coach calling in the play to him as Colts QB, nice

Wonderful how they had this banner at the top of the screen:
"We noticed that you may have an Ad Blocker turned on. Please be aware that our site is best experienced with Ad Blockers turned off. "
Says you buddy!!! i experienced it quite fine, lol

Besides, with the amount of weed he smokes, I question his conditioning

You've said nothing about Drevno, though, in a post titled "Why Drevno Is a Good OC Hire"
Talking about Roman has nothing to do with him. If youre point was that Roman was polarizing, then title it "Why Roman would be a bad OC hire"
I'm just saying, I think that's common sense. Very misleading post

They fired THIS guy:
"During his tenure, the 49ers won two NFC West titles, reached the NFC Championship game in three consecutive seasons and advanced to Super Bowl XLVII. Harbaugh is the only coach in the history of the NFL to lead his team to the conference championship game in each of his first three seasons, and his 44 regular season coaching victories rank second in the NFL during his four-year tenure with the 49ers."
I cant read that and then imagine firing the guy that helped make that happen
