Borges should be fired.

completely predictable, won't play Denard and Devin at the same time for some reason and insists on running it up the middle for one yard losses

Honestly look at the game. OSU made adjustments sure but it became obvious that when denard was QB he would run. Also we havent been able to run it up the middle all year, maybe against Illionis but thats it, so you do it agianst a better defense? Also you are moving the ball passing yet you go to the run? Borges should be fired.

OSU was giving us the game and borges gave it right back.

With the win going to Al because he called a decent first half and then just totally shit the bed in the second. I thought Denard was going to run for 200 plus yards today but I forgot we have to protect his health for the Alabama game! Wait what? We already played Alabama...I'm losing my mind right now. FML

Can we not be Michigan state fans?

I didn't see Borges turn the ball over 4 times.

He called a shitty game, but denard is gone next year, so his cluelessness with how to use him will finally end.

of the game way too often.  Why not play Denard and Devin together?  We were way too predictable in the 2nd half allowing Ohio's D to know whether it will be a run or pass just based on who was in the game.  That was some of the most pathetic play calling I have seen in a long time and it absolutely cost us the game.

on what grounds... he was awful today and except for a terrible Iowa team, when was the last time he called a great game?  Made me sick to watch that second half... looked like the entire game against Alabama

First of many, and please don't chide the OP for making the post acting like you're above falling for firings. That was the most pathetic excuse for an offense in the second half and it had NOTHING to do with the players. Clearly out thinking yourself. I am so very disappointed for those players who gave it all and had their coaches let them down.

So predictable they might as well have printed the play calls in Braille and handed out copies to Ohio. I've defended him for two years, but this game was sheer lunacy.

of Borges needs to understand that college football is a big money business.  When college football coaches make big $$$$ like they do in today's game, they are under the microscope.  It may be unfair, ut it's the reality of today's game.

If it weren't for Mattison we would've been 5-9 instead of 8-4. Air Force, Sparty, and Northwestern would've edged us if it weren't for great defense. Of course if it weren't for Borges dicking around and squandering entire drives, quarters, halves, games, and maybe even this whole fucking season team 133 would've been 11-1. Notre Dame, Nebraska, and Ohio thank you, Al.

Hoke should be gone as well, dude has never won a conference title NEVER, meanwhile out biggest rival has a guy that has won not ONE but TWO national titles. What does that say about the hire? Also look at what Brian Kelly is doing at ND. Hoke was a panic hire and not the right one, I don't really see him leading us anywhere other than the capital one bowl. Feel free to give me negative points slappies but open your eyes and do you really want someone who doesn't even wear a headset to be the head coach of the Michigan Wolverines. Horrible year and we got beat by every good team we played, can't wait to get spanked in the bowl game. Yay.

Worst offensive play calling I've seen since the Carr days. Pathetic. Fire Borges and fire Hoke for hiring him. It's not just this game it's all the games this season.

However, RR was fired because he didn't manage the defense well, Hoke is not managing the offense, and the same people who wanted a change in coaching should feel the same way now. All has got to go. He had the most prolific QB tandem perhaps in UM history, and managed to fumble his way to a 4 loss season. Pathetic.
