I would as a backup option for sure. Great coach, but not a head coach. Does Michigan want to take a flyer on a guy who doesn't have HC experience? I don't think so. The risk is probably fairly low with Herman, but they need something bigger and proven.
a lot of good choices on that list, but I would take Mora over anyone else
I actually wasn't trying to be a smart a$$ with my "no" comment. Coombs, Ash, Johnson and Fickell is a heck of a staff. You're D has a ton of good young guys, especially true freshmen, it could take a little time for them to fully get into the swing of things. If anything, switch from Fickell to Ash as the head DC.
It's possible, but not very likely Michigan could win on Saturday. I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled a great game out of their butts, especially if they can capitalize on a slow start by Ohio State like they had against Minnesota or Indiana. HOWEVER, if Michigan wins, it will have nothing to do with the kids supporting Brady Hoke and everything to do with them wanting to beat their biggest rival.
It's hard to argue with CC that this isn't rock bottom, I gotta agree. I'm curious why it's past lunch on Sunday after losing to Maryland and Hoke hasn't been fired yet. Just let Nuss coach against osu, it honestly couldn't be worse for what will happen.
why are people so dumb?
Yes, agreed. The big hitters, like Harbaugh, are option #1. Tom Herman, Pat Narduzzi or Chad Morris would be options #2...
I'm not sold that the AD needs to be a big hitter though. They just need to be smarter than Brandon, which shouldn't take much. The interim AD, Jim Hackett, could still be the guy and I don't really care as long as he's not an idiot. I have a feeling that whoever takes that seat will be better just b/c of what they saw happen with DB.
I would take him in a heart beat...It could be the next Woody v Bo
I'm not certain Harbaugh will come either, but he has to be the #1 choice. If they don't get him, there are a lot of great options available of already established head coaches in college and some great assistants that might take a HC job....cough*Tom Herman*cough
I think UM will hire a new AD shortly after the season when a certain NFL head coach could be available.
Before the Dave Brandon/Hoke being stuff came out, they had the top class in the nation for average star ranking at around 3.91/recruit...It's not really surprising that with the uncertainties of the coaching staff that decommits would happen and rankings drop...where would you expect them to be in their situation?
Dave Brandon out AND Michigan picks up a 2016 LB committ..on the same day...is this real life?
This was a great article. Nicely done Ramzy
He won't be the last decommit, but I don't think there will be a mass exodus. Clark seems likely to leave, but what school hasn't he decommitted from already?
Can't agree with this more. Brandon and his PR minions are complete idiots and it only gets worse as it trickles down to the head football coach. While I defended Hoke in the past and wanted to see him make it through the '15 season, this weekend and this situation were the absolute last straw. He and Brandon should be gone...now
That being said, while the rest of the world (except the Buckeye and Spartan fans) want Hoke gone yesterday, but it probably won't happen until the post season when he gets his $2mil termination check...I hate college football right now...so much...
I'm hoping for either of the Harbaugh brothers, but getting them from the NFL will be tough, even when Jim is fired by the 49ers after this season. Maybe Les Miles, maybe Mark Stoops...But Doug Nussmeier seems to be a realistic option that I wouldn't be too upset with.
thrown into a game where you're down 16 and it's raining heavily, not his fault...Go watch the bowl game from last year where he started, he looked pretty good, I'm positive for his future...
That being said, I wish Hoke just stuck with his gut and kept Gardner at WR. I am willing to put up with growing pains with Morris. I am not willing to put up with growing pains with a QB who's been in the program for 16 years and still sucks
I for one was happy to see the rain delay...to end whatever that was...
For my sanity, please don't sign this...I'm high on life and have convinced myself the 49ers are firing Harbaugh and Dave Bradon is opening up his pizza-filled checkbook to bring him to Ann Arbor
Devin Funchess could be added to the list, even if Michigan struggles again this year
Best of luck to him and his recovery. Hate to see guys go down with injuries, no matter how much of a rivalry it is.
He was just dismissed from the program. No idea about his school career yet, but I have a feeling it won't be at Michigan.
should be kicked off the team, if not out of school for this. I'm not sure if he has a history of this sort of thing, but this is right up there, if not worse, than the Jayru body slam.
