Report: Michigan Chose Brady Hoke Over Kevin Sumlin

That good ole hindsight is always 20/20. As it turns out, Michigan had also interviewed Kevin Sumlin back in 2011 for the football head coaching position. This comes from college football insiders Bruce Feldman and Stewart Mandel. On his morning podcast. Feldman said that AD Dave Brandon interviewed Sumlin when Rich Rodriguez was fired. This isn’t to say that Sumlin would’ve...

U of M President Statement on Wolverine Football, Shane Morris

University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel made a statement on Tuesday afternoon regarding the recent failure of the Michigan Football program to properly assess the health of QB Shane Morris. The statement was NOT released at 1 AM, like Athletic Director Dave Brandon’s was, so at least there’s a positive. The statement from this afternoon reads: “As the leader of our...

Michigan Student’s Petition To Fire AD Dave Brandon Has Thousands Of Signatures

On Michigan, Brady Hoke, and Dave Brandon.

I've been trying to figure how the right way to handle the Michigan situation involving head coach Brady Hoke's handling of quarterback Shane Morris' head injury on Saturday. Incidents like this is why my enjoyment is college football blogging has been waning lately. The more serious off-the-field issues (or in this case, on-the-field medical-related issues) have started...

Michigan Wolverines A.D. OBLITERATED by Twitter Hashtag

Michigan Wolverines Athletic Director Dave Brandon is probably as much a dead man walking as Head Coach Brady Hoke. Although you wouldn’t know this by watching the Big Ten Network, as they intentionally have their heads in the sand. Normally, I wouldn’t bother slamming the BTN because I know what it actually is: a television version of a press release. It’s league marketing...

Media Pressure Mounting On Brady Hoke After Shane Morris Injury Debacle

It’s true that if Michigan’s football team owned a 5-0 record at this point in the season, head coach Brady Hoke would not be receiving the scathing level of commentary that’s been thrown in his direction over the past 48 hours. That point has to be acknowledged by any clear-eyed media analyst or college football fan. Yet, the fact that Michigan is 2-3 has, in a sense, done...

Brady Hoke releases statement on Shane Morris

Michigan head coach Brady Hoke released a statement Sunday night on quarterback Shane Morris' injury on Saturday against Minnesota. It looked apparent that Morris had a leg injury, but Hoke chose to keep the young sophomore QB in anyways. Some Yardbarker bloggers wrongly claimed that Morris walked with a gimp legged due to a concussion, but it is rather obvious that he had a...

Michigan TE Commit Says That If Brady Hoke Gets Fired, It ‘Changes Everything’

Chris Clark is one of the best tight end recruits in America. The four-star 2015 recruit is the No. 2 tight end prospect and the No. 79 player in America, according to 24/7. Clark was committed to North Carolina, but in June, Clark flipped his commitment to Michigan. Since then, Michigan has started its 2014 season and has struggled mightily. The team is 2-3 — marking the first...

Report: Michigan Interested In John Harbaugh

The Michigan Wolverines are reportedly interested in having a Harbaugh replace Brady Hoke, just not the brother you’d expect. Gil Brandt is reporting that John, not Jim Harbaugh, would be the likely choice for the Wolverines. If Brady Hoke gets fired, don't be surprised if a Harbaugh is Michigan's replacement. John, not Jim. John graduated from HS in Ann Arbor. — Gil...

Brady Hoke’s Incompetence Reaches a New Level

The incompetence of Michigan head football coach Brady Hoke may have taken the next step on Saturday. And in the process, it might cost Hoke his job with the Wolverines. This story is less about Michigan’s embarrassing home loss to Minnesota on Saturday and more about his actions on the sideline during the loss. As you can see in the video above, Hoke and Michigan’s coaching...
