There has been growing discontent with Hoke for some time now, dating back to at least last season. But the Utah loss seems to have had a disproportionate effect. ESPN is suddenly smelling blood and televising a routine Hoke presser, and MGoBlog and Michigan fandom has lit the torches and picked up the pitchforks. I don't recognize this place.
I get the start of the season is disappointing. Even as a Hoke slappy, I'll admit whatever doubts I had have grown. And I understand how whatever oppostion Hoke had would grow with the loss.
But why have we gone over a cliff after Utah? It's not App State, Toledo, or even an Akron near miss. They're a decent PAC team that came in and we lost a game we shouldn't have.
What am I missing? What was it about Utah?
