No Coordinator Pressers This Week

Submitted by goblue232 on October 17th, 2011 at 12:50 PM

Just thought I'd put this out there to avoid a meltdown tomorrow when Heiko does not post coordinator recaps.  The Hoke presser today is the only one they are having during the bye week.  The normal media schedule will resume next week.

Kinda sucks that we have to wait a week.  I really want to see how Borges responds to the game from Saturday.

I understand the bye week changes the timing of the pressers, but it also seems very convenient to me that Borges does not have to face the press after this last game.  I'm not saying he should be grilled, I'm just interested to hear his take on some of the decisions he made.

No, he should be grilled. That comes with the job. It's easy to do a press conference when your are 6-0, but I want to know how he responds after a loss. He had a horrendous day calling plays, and I want him to own up to that. Denard played poorly as well, so not all the blame should go to Borges, but that 4th and 1 call will stick with me for a while. I

Let's Get Denarded - not looking to start an internet fight, I actaully want to understand the reasoning behind the sentiment that Borges should "own up" to his play calling.  What will this do?  It won't change the past.  Is this to have hope for the future?  Is it to feel like you were right about the play calling?  What is the reason for saying Borges should publicly make a statement about the quality of his play calling for a specific game?  Interested in your perspective.

the beneift of the doubt with the playcalling.

I do think it would be nice to have some insight as to why we weakly attempted (if at all) to keep MSU honest by throwing a screen or something.

Also, I'm sure you all caught this, but Hoke answered the interviewer at halftime about why Devin was coming in to throw so often...he said (paraphrase) he was a little more accurate for the conditions.

After a shitty day at work, when I am frustrated. Got hammered.lost.could have made different choices...yadda yadda...i hope my boss doesn't come grill me, because overall I'm way better at my job than people critiquing me on a blog would be at my job.
On another unrelated note.. The swype on my Droid tried to make "shitty" "Shittu" and "grill" "Heiko".

The coordinators ought to be at the pressers, if for no other reason to show that they're not ducking them. I doubt both Borges and Mattison are recruiting out of town; if they are, they could arrange alternative times to talk.

Personally I still am happy they do coordinator pressers at all, considering Brandon's apparent disdain for hearing the fanbase's input.

The same questions can be asked next week. Plus, if you look at how the posts and thoughts improve dramatically on this board with each day removed from the emotions of game day, the questions stand to be even better next week. 

Nobody is ducking anything.

It's going to take a week (at least) to come up with a believable explanation for the 4th and one play call that doesnt suggest him going completely insane when he selected it.


October 17th, 2011 at 1:56 PM ^

This tells me everything I need to know about Borges and Hoke. All that tough talk in the off-season and Borges can't face the press now after their complete imcompetence. Hoke protecting him is ridiculous. Borges is not recruiting this week. They get paid more than half a million dollars a year, they should have to answer for this non-sense. Fans support the program with their donations, buying tickets, gear, etc. They should be held accountable. Even my little sister who is 12 was saying "why isn't the dread guy (Deneard) running the ball".


October 17th, 2011 at 4:32 PM ^

They're not having a press conference because there isn't a game this weekend.  They'll be back next week and surely will be asked questions about the MSU game.  It's not like everyone's going to forget about it in one week's time.


October 17th, 2011 at 2:21 PM ^

being able to grill Borges would be nice, but it's not going to make me feel better.  Winning our next 3 (or 5) games, however, would do the trick.

WTF. Do you people really think Borges has never faced the media  after a loss. Oh the grilling he would have taken from Mitch, Rosey, Snides and the lot, no way possible Borges could stand up to the onslaught. You people humor me.
