So, I think we need a distraction from all the Fire Everyone posts. Here is my gut feel on how the rest of the season will play out. You may not like the End. I don't either. Feel free to disagree:
We beat Indiana 31-28. Devin looks good against the offensive Indiana defense. Our record edges up to 4-5. The best highlights shown by ESPN are the students all wearing #fireBrandon t-shirts. Hoke says he feels happy for the kids. They worked hard for this win.
Tough road trip to Evanston. The Wildcats are motivated when they rememeber last year's last minute win on a FG. We all know how well Hoke prepares for a road game. The Wildcats win 28-21. Our record drops to 4-6. Hoke says the kids will go back to work this week and focus on winning the rest of their games.
Maryland comes to town. They are pumped to play in the Big House. Unfortuantely, the Big House is only 80% full. The announced attendance is 104,887. The team plays hard but the season has worn on them. Maryland looks like a completely different team then the one Wisconsin curb stomped. Terps win 27-24 when Michigan misses 2 field goals. Record drops to 4-7. Hoke says we are all dissapointed. He needs to coach better, but kids will now focus on our biggest rival.
11-29-14: Team travels to Columbus. Buckeye fans dig up their old "We Love Rich Rod" posters and white out Rich Rod's name and replace it with Hoke's. Before the game, Team plants a pitchfork on the big O as a show of unity. Urban Meyer ends up planting a pitchfork in Hoke's ass. Buckeyes win 42-21. Two of the scores are on picked off JT Barrett passes. Hoke apologizes for the interceptions during his post game press conference. Season ends at 4-8. When asked about his job status, Hoke replies "well..stuff like that you cant worry about. Its about the kids and the ability to execute with physicallity".
Atletic Department releaes a statement that Dave Brandon has announced his resignation.:When the press contacts Brady Hoke he says "well..I'm not fully aware of any resignations, but I am partially aware". MgoBlog "bad gateway errors" make it impossible to post new AD search rumors.
Michigan announces the hiring of Uconn AD Warde Manuel as Brandon's replacement. Says "he has not yet made a decision on Hoke's status and needs further time for evaluation". This is the kiss of death.
Early January 2015:
Brady Hoke announces his "resignation". He restates his love for Michigan and says that the decision was all his and he feels he was too much of a distraction to the Kids. Coincidentally, this coincides with the buy out reduction of $1 million in Hoke's contract. Warde Manuel says the buy out did not come into paly and that the decision was all Hoke's.
Warde Manuel announces the promotion of Doug Nussmeier as interim Head Coach and says he will be given a full shot at the position. The coaching search commences. Flight Tracker goes wild....
The day after the SuperBowl. Miami Dolphins fire their Head Coach. A few days later a blockbuster trade is announced with the 49'ers that sends Jim Harbaugh to the Dolphins. Dolphins also announce that Dave Brandon has been hired as VP-Marketing. Brandon & Harbaugh get to work work together after all. Commence Mgoblog suicide alert..
AD Warde Manuel announces that Doug Nussmeier has been signed to a 4 year contract for $4 million per year. He states that he is a great young mind with the passion to lead the Wolverines to success.
