Turns out the impact of Brady Hoke on our friend "C Mann 1979" was too much for just one letter. Here is a second letter to Commander Clapper:
Dear Coach Hoke,
Since you have been telling your recruited players that it doesn't matter that much who coaches the blue boys, I have a suggestion for you on your impending replacement. Perhaps you can put in a good word on behalf of my recommended candidate for your (old) job.
I am wondering if the new athletic director in Ann Arbor will look for another Michigan Man (in name only like you) or try to find a head coach who can take a storied football program and return it to glory.
I suggest a well known candidate that has been mentioned as a candidate to replace you. But he has a strong SEC background and I know the alumni do not take kindly to the better-than-you attitude from that conference. Also, he followed a former Michigan State head coach both in college and into the pros so he has to have some knowledge of what winning is like especially since that head coach has won two national championships and is in the running every year.
His four year head coaching career in the SEC started slowly with a 7-6 record but that year he won his bowl game against the team you call Ohio. Something that only happens once a decade these days in Ann Arbor. This guy is 1-0 against the Buckeyes.
His second year he finished 11-2 and in the top ten rankings. Sounds familiar for a new head coach.
Then things went south for this once dominant program. They finished 2013 with seven straight losses and a sorry 4-8 record. But the school decided to give the coach and his full bevy of recruits one more chance. Boy, that sounds familiar too.
And this year didn't meet the usual standards even though they are bowl eligible and should finish the regular season 6-5 that including an upset of a top ten team that allowed them to qualify for a bowl game. Something you had trouble doing in all four years at Ann Arbor. Unless of course you win your final regular season game today. Which is about as likely as Appalachian State winning two in a row in front of 100,000+.
Will Muschamp has all ready been released from the University of Florida so he could help with recruiting right away. It's a perfect fit if your future former employers could only accept logic over arrogance.
Most Sincerely Yours,
C Mann 1979
