Brady Hoke expounded on the importance of tradition when he became Michigan’s head coach. Now entering his fourth season, high expectations fueled by the storied past of Michigan football threaten to swamp the program.

Good idea for a write up, Phil. I always wondered where I program would be today if Mo couldve held "it" together. I'm sure he would have won a NC in his tenure.

Letting him go was a total over-reaction from Michigan and Joe Roberson, second only to Roberson trying to convince us that Moeller resigned.  He was fired, pure and simple, and the cover-up was unconvincing.  He was a good coach, opened up the offense and introduced the forward pass at Michigan ;), and recruited TOP talent while leaving a stuffed cupboard for Carr.  And when you consider who Bo had to pick from on his staff, it says a helluva lot that he chose Mo.  Totally under-valued and under-rated at Michigan and unfortunately he's remembered for one incident.  Hiring Rodriguez hurt this program FAR more than one drunken night by Moeller but ok, whatever.  He should have been our coach for 10 more years and if you need further convincing just consider the fact that he was the only Lions coach since Joe Schmidt to leave with a winning record.  Think about that! :)  Mo didn't need to "hold it together".  Michigan did.

LOL.  Sorry JSJ-I was writing to the non-Mo's.  I know you were in pro-Mo mode.  :)

I'm a big fan of Moeller but he misplayed the days after the incident. There's a simple formula for being forgiven when you screw up..."I made a mistake, I have a problem, I'm going to get help..." which Mo refused to say.
 
Considering Mo's denial that he had a problem (which I think he did and still might have) I don't see how Michigan had any other choice. No doubt Roberson was a tool and could have/should have helped Moeller make a better decision 
 
I always have wondered if Moeller wasn't thankful for a way out. The pressure seemed to eat him up...Good coach, good guy.

There are a lot of things you can get away with at Michigan. For a school/program that cares more about it's image than anything, embarrassing the program isn't one of them. You can get drunk, go off at a restaurant, punch a cop, and expect to get away with it. I have a lot of respect for Bo but I never agreed with him when it came the Moeller firing. Especially when you consider the standard that he held for his players and how tough he was on them for off the field incidents. Bo kicked guys off the team for being drunk in public, why should a coach be held to a lesser standard?
 
And let's be honest, the Moellers are raging alcoholics and this was likely not the first incident. Good coach but he had to go.
 
p.s The selection of Lloyd over Les Miles following the Moeller ouster is another subplot of this story than rarely gets talked about.
