To say that the Michigan Wolverines are struggling right now would be a major understatement, The team has lost three of its last four games and has rushed for -69 yards in the last two against Michigan State and Nebraska, respectively. With the offense struggling, head coach Brady Hoke is feeling the heat from Wolverines fans.
Facing doubt from fans is nothing new for coaches, but Hoke is also facing criticism from bit of an unlikely source: his family.
Hoke says he gets questioned about game plan etc at home from wife and daughter.

I wonder if they have any good suggestions for him at least — it must be rough to face all the criticism at work and not be able to escape it at home.
The Wolverines still have the potential to turn their season around, however unless something changes fast, it’s going to be an uphill battle the rest of the way. That battle starts in Evanston on Saturday, where the Wolverines are underdogs against Northweste...

Michigan Football is one of the three finalists with a chance to receive a commitment from super-recruit Da’Shawn Hand (Woodbridge, Virginia). The 6-foot-4, 250 pound defensive end is ranked the #1 recruit in the country by rivals.com.
Hand took an official visit to Florida this past weekend and saw the Gators lose to Vanderbilt. He also recently visited Alabama...
A streak no more! Michigan falls to Nebraska 17-13. Brady Hoke’s home win streak ends at 19 straight.
To say it’s been a down two weeks for our Maize & Blue would be an understatement. After falling to MSU last week, the Wolverines couldn’t shake the loss and were unable to sustain a strong defensive second-half performance by the defense and the team ultimately allowed...
(Eds: With AP Photos.) By LARRY LAGE AP Sports Writer Michigan had hoped to close the regular season well enough to earn a shot at playing for the Big Ten title.
Officially, that can't happen now, so the Wolverines (6-3, 2-3 Big Ten) have adjusted their ultimate goal this year with the conference championship out of reach.

ANN ARBOR -- Brady Hoke's biggest problem right now might not be the other teams in the Big Ten.
It might be the one next door.
Seven months after John Beilein took a team built around freshmen and sophomores to the national-championship game, Hoke is struggling to make any progress at all with a similar group of players.
As much as he wants to blame himself, that's more...
We know a good chunk of the 100,000 or 110,000 or whatever University of Michigan fans were probably drunk on Saturday as Brady Hoke suffered his first ever home loss as leader of the Wolverines. It really sounds like Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman was drunk too when she gave this speech.
Coleman was honored for her work before she retires during the Summer of 2014. The University...

The answer is absolutely yes. And who can blame her? That offense could force any Meeeeeeechigan fan to alcohol. After starting the year 5-0, Brady Hoke and his Wolverines have gone 1-3 in their last four, including a stomping at the hands of rival Michigan State and a very uninspiring loss to Nebraska in Ann Arbor Saturday.
Mary Sue Coleman was...

In what's becoming a weekly feature on this blog...once again, M bloggers have taken to the streets. Brace for impact.
When the offense took the field with a chance to win the game late in

For the second straight week Michigan finished in the negative with their rushing attack. Michigan coach Brady Hoke addressed the issue and the lack of push out of the Wolverines front.
Ohio State and Michigan have really returned the Big Ten back to the “Big 2, little 8″ from a recruiting standpoint. Especially so if Michigan gets Da’Shawn Hand. Michigan football looks pretty awful right now, but with their recruiting classes they have on the way, they’re going to be really solid. No. 1 ranked college football recruit Da’Shawn Hand will make his college...
Should Brady Hoke still get a pass as he tries to undo the damage Rich Rodriguez did to the Michigan program? Or should he be help accountable for the mess we’re still seeing in Ann Arbor?

Where do I begin? I don’t even know what to say.
Watching the Michigan – Nebraska game was one of the most painful experiences I’ve had in a while. That says something considering what happened in East Lansing a week ago. The most painful thing to watch was our team’s lack of spirit. It was like they were dead inside. The Michigan State experience was obviously...
