My prediction (though you probably did not hear it here first): 2015 will bring both a new coach and a new AD at UM.
The original excuse for Hoke's performance was that he inherited Rich Rod's guys. But his record has gone downhill each year as more of "his" guys came into the program. This despite having some really good recruiting classes. Could it be that (gasp!) Hoke is a poor coach, even though he is a "Michigan Man"? I think the UM faithful are coming to that realization, and in 2015 even AD Brandon will get the message and see the need for action. Brandon fires Hoke, then after the search concludes the Regents fire Brandon. And the UM football program enjoys 2 more years of upset and mediocrity!
This is a great time to be a Buckeye!
