After another extremely poor showing last night, we're all just as sick of Hoke and the administration as last week. But, I fear that the prediction that Brandon could skate through this mess could be true if we (the fans and especially the students) don't come up with another way to focus anger towards Brandon.
We all know that Hoke is gone sometime after the OSU game (I personally don't believe it's possible that he'll be let go sooner than that). But, I'm afraid of the situation where Brandon is still here and uses the firing of Hoke as his "Get out of jail free" card. It seems that momentum towards Brandon's removal has stalled - my question is therefore, what can we practically do to restart that momentum and help Schlissel see that adding walkie-talkies and firing Hoke is not reason enough for Brandon to be retained?
Alas, the only 2 ideas I have are:
Another "Fire Brandon" chant during the PSU game
Although this is relatively easy to do, I doubt it'll have any practical effect as Schlissel may never learn about it.
Another rally outside the President's house
I'm unsure how effective repeating the same stunt will be... but if students were to gather there on their way back from the PSU game maybe a critical mass could be achieved such that it would attract more than the 500-1000 that were at the original rally.
Edit: enlightenbum had the good idea to show up at the Regents meeting on Wednesday (10/8) at the School of Public Policy.
This seems like an excellent place to show anti-Brandon sentiment to people with decision making power, Schlissel's ear, and who are willing to listen since they're elected officials
Edit: kakusei pointed out that Brandon obviously has a special place for UTL games. If stduents showed up 20-30 minutes late en masse, that would send a message that the commentators couldn't help but talk about (especially if it's followed by a Fire Brandon chant).
But, the logistics of making that happen would be... difficult at best.
MGoBlog is the effective epicenter of student and fan disapproval towards Brandon. If we want him gone in time for a new AD to make the coaching hire, then I think it's our responsibility to come up with practical ways to ensure Schlissel can't ignore the will of the fans.
So... what's your idea?
