I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

Watched DVR after my kids kicked ass in soccer...and .. Do I need to say?

That was shit.

Good lord. I am drunk. That sucked...I never am critical of coaches...they know way more than I do.

But we have way too much talent for that shit.

I am so fucking pissed

Not much in the mood to be positive, but...it's very cool that your kids kicked ass on the pitch today.  In your life, the success of your children should outweigh the success of a team of young adults whose behaviors/actions/results/actions you have no way of impacting.  

(advice easitly spewed and not easily followed...but anyway)

My kids had very successful weeks in athletics, academics, and music, but I'm still way pissed off.  If anyone wants to offer me the same advice I've given I may come off the edge...(not really on the edge but still pissed)

Totally unprepared.  If you're going to play press man, actually hit the guys.  Otherwise you're just asking to get beat over the top and slants will murder you.  Someday we'll develop another elite pass rusher.  Maybe we should attack ND's small corners with jump balls to our giant, super fast, Biletnikoff candidate?

Bonus kudos for keeping our only two offensive weapons to get hurt in meaningless blowout action.  That was pretty awesome.

There's theoretically plenty of talent on this team now.  It is not being developed and not being schemed into good positions at this point.  Which means this staff has failed.

Unfortunately, our AD is an idiot, who would probably get snowed under by a flashy Lane Kiffin type, who would further destroy the program.

to see Hoke applauding his QB's 3rd interception of the night.  I think its important to keep the guys spirits up when you're trailing 31-0 in the 4th Q, not yell at the guys and maybe light a fuking fire under them.

Fire Hoke now. Ask Lloyd to coach the remainder of the season. We'll be in a better position to choose among new HC candidates. Oh, and fire Brandon soon too.

Then we'll learn a lot about the character of the coaches and the team after laying this egg. No one made a play when they had to and no coach seemed to come up with just the right call when they needed it most.

Football starts in the trenches, since the dawn of football, up to today and will beyond my years watching.

Do our "lines" suck because our coaches suck at coaching them or because they just aren't very good Collegiate players?

Also, that being said, we showed tonight we didn't have the caliber players/technique necessary on the edges, either. Again, coaching and the fundamentals they've been taught? Or just not good enough?

Man I wish Brandon wasn't the AD and one I the Harbaugh's wanted to coach this team. I hate calling for people to lose their job but my god hoke looks lost. The offense looks bad, oline is terrible, 1 playmaker, everyone else just looks sooooooo slow. Offense looks bad, defense looks bad, special teams was horrible. This season goes either north or south from here...coaches better get it figured out.

To much cheering and clapping on the sidelines, patting guys on the ass, laughing, with no headset, or game plan in hand. It's been 4 years and it's beyond old now. Need a X's and O's football coach and I don't care if it's a "Michigan man" or not.

Hoke's a nice fellow. His teams take after him. Wearing short sleeves in the cold doesn't make you tough. Hoke's teams aren't tough and after a while, you gotta look at the man at the top.

DB will not fire him. He will go down with the ship because he has his guy that "doesn't need a map to get around Ann Arbor". A lot of people didn't believe me when I said it years ago, but the football program is rotten from the top to bottom, and has been for years.

If we had a personnel plan, or offensive or defensive games plans how would we ever know? Our players-all of them- we're outplayed physically and emotionally. Of course this starts with the coaches, but none of our players were in the same league as ND- and they played 19 freshmen!

We were physically beaten and emotionally broken, offensively and defensively.

Our coaches are not getting the job done and we have seriously overrated our players. Even our " stars" sucked and were humiliated.

Its a long season and a very strong record will help erase some of this, but I do not see this team with its lack of development, defensive and offensive weaknesses achieving a record good enough to warrant keeping the staff.

The OL is a turnstile. Winning or even being competittive is going to be hard when Gardner has 0.8 seconds before an untouched defender is bearing down. With that said, I've never thought that Hoke should be fired in the past. I'm completely sober tonight and all I can think about is how we can get Peppers to stay / attrition to be limited and move on. I think the only way he should go though is if we have someone like Les Miles or better lined up.
