Overstate much?  Granted the top of the student section was empty, the I'd say the overall student section was roughly 3/4 full.  I don't remember the exact timing of the pending weather announcement and Gardner's interception, but quite a few people left left.  Another large batch left when Utah subsequenly kicked the FG relatively early in the 4th.

what's over? Is he getting fired tonight? Next week? At the end of the season? I don't even have enoough faith in DB to get rid of Hoke even if we lost all our remaining games. 

What else could be over? The season? No, we have like 9 more games to suffer through this coaching incompetence, so that's not over either. If you mean a shot at the B1G than granted, he probably knows that's over. 

I do feel bad for Hoke because he is obviously a nice human being and he has a lot of very admirable characteristics. I would love to have him stay on as like the d-line coach or something. He can recruit like crazy and really seems to know how to relate to young men and their families. He simply isn't (and never has been) a great or even good HC.

If nothing else, we finally got the overhead distribution out of there so the folks building the student housing by Pizza House can finally position that crane. There shouldn't be too much of a delay logistically in the delivery or pickup of orders now - from this standpoint anyway, Ann Arbor can continue to operate as normal.

If he put on a headset, it was so he could eat the microphone with ketchup and mustard without messing up his hands....after all, he needs to clap when the offense comes off the field.

Sorry, but I fell off the wagon on my UM schadenfreude 12 step program when VT kicked our asses a few weeks ago

The end of that game seriously felt like a funeral. Good god I've never felt this low about Michigan football. Not even after the Gator Bowl. Not even after ND this year. This is an unbelievable level of low I never thought possible.

But I'll say it again:

We basically have the opposite of Rich Rod now. A total dumpster fire of awfulness on offense and a good defense. 

So frustrating to see as a fan, is it fucking impossible for us to have nice things and get a coaching crew that can manage to do BOTH at the same time?

We've lost 8 out of the last 12. Over Hoke's tenure we've had fantastic recruiting classes. That said he has not been able to recruit a top QB prospect. For all his recruiting success, his inability to attract a top national propsect for what it undoubtedly the most important position on the field -  will ultimately cost Hoke  his job. I don't think we have a QB on the roster to help us right the ship. We need a stud. Sadly, the next great QB at Michigan is probably in 10 years old and living in California. How much more losing do you need to convince yourseld that Brady Hoke has got to go?

Just throwing this out as speculation, but maybe the reason Michigan is performing so poorly compared to other teams is the lack of use of perfromance enhancing drugs relative to other teams, HGH or steroids.  I am not advocating there use, but many/most players in the NFL use and I think most of the good programs use them heavily. 

If you doubt most player in the NFL use them, I ask you to just consider how much bigger the players are then they were 30/40 years ago, before the age of steroids.  I don't think this is a natural occurance. 

It maybe that Michigan just does it cleaner than other programs, but as a result they are unable to compete.
