Michigan's surge and decline has been a bit of a head scratcher. Brady Hoke was recruited fairly well, but the results on the field keep getting worse.
I think a big part of the problem is that he's hung on to some coaches that couldn't deliver. Their offensive line was one of the worst in the country despite the 1st round draft pick and a number of 4* guys. Somehow they brought back the offensive line coach this year.
RichRod was a good offensive coach who screwed up with his defensive hire. It remains to be seen whether Hoke is a good coach.
How long has Hoke been there, and could he realistically be on the hot seat?
Year 4 and yes. He needs to show improvement over last year IMO.
They can call Todd Graham,... I am sure its his "Dream Job" just like the last 3 have been
see you at the bottom Michigan 9/17/2016
They say misery loves company, but Michigan's malaise doesn't make me feel any better about the Buffs. Mostly, I just feel numb about college football (I've never followed another sport as closely).
Calling Chris Fox
I feel the same way.... but you all have it wrong...
I went to CU
Wife went to Michigan
We are both big supporters and have asked that both schools stay away from the top 25 until we have raised our children to the point that we can both actively follow our programs. My youngest is 2.... so it should only be a few more years.....
It's obvious that he's not. He was a sub .500 coach when he was hired by Michigan and they only hired him because he was friends with he's friends with people behind the scenes at Michigan.
How much did you have to donate to get that kind of commitment? sorry UBL?
Notre Dame showed Michigan just how irrelevant they are...31-0 and it wasn't that close
They gave him that commitment for his birthday (undersigned by Old Scratch), but now they'll all be fighting over rights to his first born when they are ranked 1 & 2 in twenty years. I (and hopefully I'm not alone) certainly appreciate your long range thinking and sacrifice, Philly.
Seriously. Maybe we can even play Shane Callahan some to demonstrate that it would be an ideal transfer.
I didn't see much of the ND game, but I was floored they still had a RichRod option guy at QB. I still think he's a good coach (turning around Balls Tate and SDSU isn't overly easy), but whatever he is doing aint working up there.
How long did it take at Ball State and SDSU? He had a really good QB at SDSU.
5th year at Balls 7-6, then year 6 went 12-1. SDSU was 4-8 year1 then 9-4 year2.
The class of 2013 looks pretty dang good. I'm not sure CU has ever had a class like that. If he can't get it done with those guys as JR's next year I am guessing his seat starts to get very hot.
Ive been to games in that stadium. I hope they can turn it around. BlowHighOh State took how long between Woody Hayes to Jim Tressell?
It takes a long time as we all know.
They have a long way to fall to get to where we are now.
If ND only put 31 on us, we'd be jumping for joy.
