“I want to get rid of the word, ‘Michigan Man,’”- Paul Hackett, Interim Michigan AD. And today, with the hiring of former Wolverine Jim Harbaugh, Hackett and the folks in Ann Arbor have done just that. The phrase itself is a bit of a misnomer. It comes from the lips of the Wolverine’s greatest, most […]
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.
It has also not been announced who will coach Michigan in their bowl game in January.
I know I echo the thoughts of all Buckeye fans when I say I wish a speedy recovery to JT Barrett and hope he returns next year better than ever. Despite all the bad stuff, hey everyone, WE BEAT MICHIGAN, AGAIN!! Turn that frown upside down. We will be fine with Cardale Jones. I admit, […]
Our to give him a follow on Twitter as well! What will TTUN have to do to stay with the Buckeyes step for step and hope to send Hoke out a winner? It relies on calling on the ghosts of the past. We’re going to need: The snow from the 1950 game. This will help […]
We are officially smack dab in the middle of Hate Week! I’m sure you’ve kept the color blue out of your clothing choices so far, make sure and finish strong.

This is one of those articles that I have done for an extended period of time that I am really enjoying. Looking forward to starting to throw in some basketball soon, but for now we will keep our sights on the football guys. Speaking of basketball, I feel I need to tell everyone that even […]

Well, what can I say? I’m not doing so well this year. But there is plenty of time for me to catch up. I just can’t afford to fall too much farther behind. Ken was nearly perfect, missing only on Penn State. Nice call on the Minnesota win over TTUN. I missed on TTUN, Penn […]

We love to have a good time around here and when it comes to Michigan losses? Well, it just doesn’t get any better than this past weekends 26-10 loss to Utah in the not-so Big House.
