someone who's first priority is hiring harbaugh
that'd be my first question for each candidate
|8 weeks 2 hours ago||Agree/Disagree||
I agree, the team played about up to their potential with this staff. I saw about what I expected to see. Anger was Borges, it has past
Disagree about fire Hoke now. I think youre talking about 2 different issues that just happen to have merged during a rivalry game. Plenty of reason to fire him now. No reason to be angry
Let's take your words, though, and reverse the scenario
KEEPING "Hoke now will get us precisely nothing, it will not attract a better coach, it will not stop the slide of this season. Sure, if we had 6 or 7 wins going into this game, then yeah, I'd get it. "
"we will have a new coach next season, as almost everyone wants. This game seals that." Absolutely false. the ONLY thing that seals that is when they announce the HC is fired. which leads me to...
"Recruiting is already negatively impacted, and it will not get better no matter what happens to the staff this season."
True, it wont get better. but the slim uncertainty present as long as Hoke keeps his job can definitely make it worse. Fire Hoke and recruits Know, for a fact, there will be a new coach. An interim allows the season to get better or worse with no real consequence. recruits are assured that next year will be different, regardless of better or worse. See, recruits now are looking at 2 things. will Hoke still be here, or will there be a new coach. fire Hoke and you can take one of those variables off the list
Now, I tend to be an objective person so pardon this next part
Take osu. interim coach, horrible season, whole season to coach search, went after the top candidate available, got him, right back to being good.
now our scenario is more complicated (AD situation, primary candidate is already employed and affected by AD, and all other etceteras), but getting out there early and actively searching out in the open for coaches right now gets us ahead of the game, IMO.
So, my opinion a couple weeks ago was as it is now. The team is not going to get better. Hoke has given us a myriad of reasons to fire him. but can you give me a reason to KEEP him?

|1 year 2 weeks ago||Last Year||
Well, last year was actually a pretty good defensive effortn mainly in the second half. Miller only had 57 yds rushing total, and they only scored 6 points in the 2nd half. Offensively, we score one touchdown in the 2nd half, we win that game

I was gonna say, If Kalis doesnt cut his DL, that would have been potentially a 2 yard loss. Prolly the most important block of the play or tied with Glasgow

Kalis was RG, not Kugler. easy to see in the endzone celebration

Dont take lightly the fact that an inexperienced QB can get alot better when practicing against a tough defense every week. I think that is one advantage maxwell will have

"I mean, we don't gloat about it to the same extent when we beat MSU"
That's the point. I'm not talking about throwing out losses. In the John L days it was like, okay, we got msu, lets go out and beat em. okay whos next. sure we won but who really gave a shit. it didnt prove that we were a good team, it just proved they sucked. We proved to be a good team by having consistent success.
two 11 win seasons and first bowl win in 5 years dont mean shit on a national level. Yet they validate themselves by winning their midwest super bowl 4 years straight?
I would have more respect for sparty if they ignored michigan. Because thats what i did when they sucked (and actually still do now, besides this one sticking point, lol). good teams dont constantly talk about beating bad ones. And Our teams were bad during this streak, until last season.
|2 years 33 weeks ago||I'd agree with you on the||
I'd agree with you on the four wins if 3 of them didn't look like a one sided cripple fight. 1st was quarterbacked by descendants of Benny Hill. 2nd had true freshman. 3rd game had a defense that probably could have been beaten by a high school all star team. This is the ONLY gripe i have with state fans, in that they take SO much pride in beating those 3 teams and continue to laud theyre 4 game streak.
Look, I am a pretty objective dude. I give credit when due. They've had 2 unbelievable seasons. Msu has a really good defense and they get all the credit for that win last year, because that UM team is the only one of the four that deserved to be on the field with them. But this bragging over beating rich rods version of the wolverines is a little ridiculous
But then again, a streak is a streak, and 5 in a row just sounds bad
|2 years 33 weeks ago||Difference is nobody really||
Difference is nobody really talks about rich rod and his recruiting classes. Meyer, however, is always given so much praise for all the talent he is able to put together. so his point is that meyer is supposed to have had all this talent at Florida but nobody is being drafted. (although, i'd say that might be due to other circumstances and not due to lack of talent. lots of attrition after meyer left)

No doubt. As soon as i heard Denver was in the mix, I just couldnt wait for it to happen. I had no idea that it would actually go this way. hopefully Tebow can go elsewhere and sit the bench like he's supposed too. He truly is horrible. (and yes, some Denver fans will be upset)
