Michigan Fires Brady Hoke

In an announcement this afternoon, interim Michigan Athletic director Jim Hackett announced that Coach Brady Hoke has been relieved of his duties effective immediately.

Hoke becomes the second coach terminated within the B1G Ten, joining Nebraska’s Bo Pelini, who was let go on Sunday after a 9-3 season.  Somehow Tim Beckman and Kevin Wilson are still employed.

Hoke is 31-20 in his tenure in Ann Arbor, and was 5-7 this season. He is 1-3 in The Game, and winless against Urban Meyer.

After going 11-2 with Rich Rodriguez players his first season (including a BCS victory over Virginia Tech), Hoke has struggled to continue the momentum for the Wolverines. His staff recruited well during the summers, but repeatedly saw recruits switch to other programs before on on National Signing Day.

At this point, no replacement has been named nor any decisions made about staff retention.

It has also not been announced who will coach Michigan in their bowl game in January.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mc6pr8Iui4k Men, this is war! I don’t care anything about the national championship or the Big Ten championship, but if we win this game today and afterward, if the Good Lord says, ‘Woody, it’s your time’, I’ll say, ‘Lord, I’m ready!’. I’ll have to take it easy up there–or down there–but I know where I’ll […]

It’s The Game, and there’s nothing like it, even this year

Another great post from our Bloguin friends at The Student Section- be sure to check them out! It’s defined not by traveling trophies, cute nicknames, or in-state borders.

That Team Up North finally stopped the bleeding, and managed to win a home game last week against the Lions of Penn State. Did the Wolverines get a little additional help “under the lights”? Let’s see what our officials think:

Officially Speaking: Fail To The Victors?

Amidst the chaos of last week’s college football games, there were a number of controversial or questionable plays. Today, our officiating team takes a look at a call that may have cost Michigan a victory, and certainly didn’t help cool down Brady Hoke’s hot seat.
