    For the news only a couple of us care about

    Once again, the rumor is Les Miles is getting the job. Unlike the first time around (which was premature and Miles wasn't contacted about the job) Michigan has contacted people close to Miles. The feeling is Miles will take the job if offered (he wanted it bad last time).

    Biggest thing is getting somebody who can bring the recruiting class together. Several prospects like Michigan but aren't gonna commit until they see the new coach.

    4* Athlete Kris Frost committed to Auburn today, but was planning on Michigan until the reality of having no coach yet sinked in. He will probably commit to another school shortly cause Auburn contacted Frost after his commitment and said they had no room.

    he just signed a huge extension with FSU. Bo Pelini on the other hand has been throwing out feelers to different jobs (Miami and Michigan for sure) so I could see him goin back to LSU IF Miles comes home.

    Looks like Brady Hoke is the guy at Michigan. If true, that's a great hire.

    It's true. A lot of fans aren't happy (mainly because Hoke could have been had a long time ago) and many feel like we lost a whole recruiting class. HOWEVER, a bunch of the alumni have come out and supported the hire. Hoke is loved by everybody he has coached and been around, and was a great recruiter when he was an assistant (he recruited Larry Foote, Glen Steele, Charles Woodson, and Tom Brady).

    Harbaugh would've been nice, and I would have supported Miles (but he burnt WAY too many bridges to come here), but Hoke was a good choice. Not sexy, but hires like Jim Tressell, Pete Carroll, and Butch Davis were not seen as great hires either

    Hoke's a great hire. Better than Miles would have been, IMO.

    MIles wasn't offered according to insiders. Brandon was told to atleast interview the guy. But the big thing is that I'm finding out is that Hoke is loved by everybody in the Michigan family

    Hoke is a damn good hire. In a couple of years, Michigan is going to start making noise again on the national scene with this guy. The real tragedy in this is what the Aztecs COULD HAVE been if Hoke stayed at SDSU. Regardless, it will be interesting too see where SDSU goes for it's next head coach. The SDUT mentioned Rocky Long taking over on an interim basis, but we'll see how things shake out.

    well the Michigan alumni are VERY supportive of this, and a lot of current players have voiced their pleasure big difference from when Rod came. Rod had a very messy divorce with WVU and it sank in with a lot of players on that Michigan team. NOBODY has anything bad to say about Hoke ever.
