Understand your point, but I will take the middle road and say it depends. If the situation continues to deteriorate this rapidly and if TTUN suffers more defeats to mediocre teams, it does not seem impossible to me that Hoke could be fired during the season. This especially could be the case if another disaster of Morris-concussion caliber arises. I guess we will see soon enough ...
Your work is done? Overestimating your superiority a bit?
Thanks for posting, MMan. That must have been hard to do ...
If you bleed the Scarlet and Grey, just be yourself.
And so my respect for Barret, always considerable, continues to grow and grow. And I do not think JT is anywhere near his ceiling.
The author of that article, a Michigan man, (verbally) took the program down more comprehensively than most of us ever could! This is Michigan indeed ...
I want to believe!
Agree with all of your points. Concussion litigation now has been initiated against the NHL as well (I believe) and against FIFA and the US soccer association (I am certain). Coaching staffs should ignore concussion "return to play" rules at their own peril.
It's like I have said in other threads: It is not Morris' decision. If a coach even suspects a concussion, he must take the player off of the field for the sake of his own safety. And essentially to defend himself by indicating that it was Morris' own decision - and thus his fault - that is cowardly and attrocious! No pity for this man please. First he defends rapists and dirty unsportsman like play, then he dodges responsibility while disrespecting his ownplayers' safety. Enough is enough.
Really appreciate the work you do, Remy. Man what a shambles they are in at the moment. Not even examining Morris is grade a negligence. Almost feel sorry for the poor kid ...
Was very down when we missed on Watson. Still, JB will be a great QB and I think with (hopefully) TG, DH and (definitely) Clark on deck, we should sleep easy.
I think you are alluding to MMan's medical diagnosis of Morris. Even if he is right and Morris was not concussed, Hoke's handling of the matter still was horrible. Morris should have been examined at taken out of the game if there was any doubt. Even if some can diagnose a player correctly from 25 yards away, one can not know for certain without an examination. The decision cannot rest with the player. What did you think Morris would do? He is fighting for a starting position and will not want to give that up lightly! Credit his toughness, but someone else has to make that call. And the head coach, whether he is paying attention to the game or not, is responsible for his players. That is what Hoke's huge pay check is for!
Just so. Kiel is a very good QB with talented receivers. Our young DBs will not face many teams with quite that passing attack this year. They will adjust and improve over the year. Nothing to worry about here.
Our guys simply got beat in man coverage. But keep in mind that they are young guys asked to play man coverage against a pass-happy team. Considering that I do not think we should panic. Other teams will not have the QB and receivers to pull that off and our backfield will improve.
You can actually see Kiel's whole upper body wobble violently. Great hit by Bosa and cool post!
Hey, don't knock it! That play opened up a wide open space allowing NW's DL to make a great tackle!
Desmond Howard, then payback year after year after year ...
I didn't know it was possible to like Danny Clark even more than I already do until I read that quote.
TheTeam16, good point about Narduzzi probably not being the right one to handle the offense. Also, in spite of some recent criticism, I think Mattison is a good DC. My feeling is that problems on offense have streched the D too much. If UM does pursue an offenive-minded coach, any idea who that might be?
Hail to the victors ... i.e. whoever plays Michigan.
I think I do understand this point. Imo UM's primary concern should be the lack of player development and the, at times, unspirited play. The right coach can fix both of these problems. Do you think there is any chance UM will pursue Narduzzi for a HC job, thereby possibly upgrading the HC position and simultaneously weakening MSU?
I've said it before: Ginn is fantastic.
I do not know what is worse for TTUN: having more turnovers than points in 7 Q against decent opposition or the woeful and spooky emptiness in Michigan Stadium (except for the Utah fans). Truly shocking ...
Damn Braxton, get well soon. Please recover and get fully healthy.
Thanks for your comment and your perspective.
