But fuck you. Anyone who WANTS Michigan to lose can kiss my ass. That's not a fan, that's not wanting whats best...that's just bullshit.

You can want Hoke and Brandon fired and not want to see Michigan lose games - especially against their in-state rival.

You've gone on and on about MSU beating Michigan this week. It's likely, no question...but to want it to happen is just disgusting. That's not being a fan one bit...and when Michigan is good again, whether Brandon or Hoke have anything to do with it, please keep rooting for MSU and every team Michigan plays.

Not sorry.

To be fair, he never said he wants Michigan to lose. He said what the realistic outcome is going to be.

I love this team and I am hoping and praying for an upset, but I think from what we have seen on the field from michigan and the MSU games from as of late, we're going to get wrecked.

These players won't quit on Brady so we have that going for us, but let's hope we come out prepared for the same game MSU is prepared for.

These players won't quit on Brady so we have that going for us

But he's already shown on several occasions that he's quitting on them:

"I quit" of the week. Hoke once again quit when victory was still distantly possible. After Gardner drove the team to a touchdown, he kicked an extra point instead of going for two to find out whether he was 2.5 or 3 possessions down, then kicked deep. "I quit," he said. Then facing fourth and ten down 16 with 4 minutes left, he punted. "I quit," he said again.

This has been a pattern in every one of Michigan's blowout losses: offenses that huddle and run the clock down to nothing while trailing by multiple scores in the second half, coupled with starters still on the field. Brady Hoke quits when down, but he wants to keep up the appearance of trying. This is why Devin Funchess is going to spend the year nursing an ankle sprain.

I get why he quits—I also want the games to be over as fast as possible. It's still embarrassing to the program.

But he has on MANY occassion, in fact, on every possible occassion he gets he loves to tell the world how he can't wait for MSU to win or how he wants MSU to win or how he wants us to lose so that Hoke and Brandon can be gone.

It's not being a fan whatsoever. I want those guys too, but I'm still going to root for the team and wish them the best. Even if I know we have a 1% chance. Hell, even if I know we have a 0% chance.

Sorry fat fingers anyways certain segments of this fanbase will say that's good enough to keep Hoke. I think evidence has shown that hoke is the blind squirrel who Occasionally finds a nut and is not qualified to lead this program to the level it needs to be at how is hoping for the outcome that gets he and Brandon tossed to the curb not the best outcome? It's a lost season

In this purely hypothetical reality, I think it would matter how the team looked in getting to 7-5. If they won some crazy, close, ugly games, then that's not  good enough. If they somehow figured the offense out during the bye and miraculously came out looking like a well oiled machine that put up points (and looked like they did it on purpose), then I could see justifying keeping him. It's not that 7-5 is "good enough," but that the trajectory suggests things are starting to come together (too late for this season, but maybe not for next). Which is part of why Rodriguez's 7-5 team didn't seem good enough to a lot of people (myself included, eventually); that 2010 squad may have gotten those 2 extra wins compared to 2009, but they got there ugly and in as uninspiring a way possible, ending on that horrendous bowl appearance. The record wasn't as damning as just how ramshackle the team seemed to be.

Now, I think this is about 0% chance of them turning a corner this year and expect maybe one more win (Indiana, aka #CHAOSTEAM). There's always going to be divisions within fanbases, especially when it comes to coaches (e.g., some hate Carr, some respect him; bringing up RR is sitll almost guaranteed to start an argument), but I've got to imagine the Fire Hoke perspective is approaching near unanimonity.
