I don't know about you but I love Brady Hoke, He's got Michigan going in the right direction, he's going backwards. 11-2 last season now 8-4 this season, keep it up fat boy, a 6-6 record for next season and a loss to our Buckeyes looks perfect.

Plus with all this talk of Hostess going under he wont be able to focus on recruting this off season. scUM will be a train wreck next year.

I love him too because he's got....."breasticles" or "tago bitties"......"man boobs!"
I just love the way he sits on the sidelines with no headphones as if he's a spectator and not a part of the game plan. The shit is funny as hell!
He's the PERFECT replacement for one Richard "Dick" Rodriquez. Awesome!!
BuckNasty is all about The Buckeyes!!!
He also made some head-scratching decisions in my opinion. Going for it up 1, 4th and 3 on his side of the field. Very predictable play calling in the 2nd half. For example, taking out Gardner and bringing in Robinson. Everyone knew it was a run. I am starting to think his in game coaching leaves a lot to be desired. I think Urban will dominate this matchup.
Hostess will be back. They won't have to abandon their copyrighted Twinkie Yellow® as a school color.
Just saying until the recipes are purchased I don't see him sleeping well.
Dude did you see who they played this year? the number 1 and 2 ranked teams in the country and had 6 away games this year with a team that doesn't have a lot of talent. I think he has done a really good job. I know were suppose to hate the guy but to just say stupid things like that doesn't make any sense.
wow making fun of a guy for being fat good one guys you really showed him. Stop embarrassing your self's and grow up sound like a bunch of kids.
Hoke is funny. He tried to project that he is like Woody Hayes wearing only a short sleeved shirt in snow flurries and 30 degree weather. The guy is simply a mediocre .500ish coach not fit to launder Woody's jock strap. Woody, (or Bruce,Tress or Meyer for that matter) would have been looking to jump off a bridge if they were .500ish at anything.
I read the Weasels board yesterday. Most are saying Hoke needs more time. He's using guys not built for his system. If that's true. And Hoke is, according to weasel fans, on a par with Urban Meyer, how is it that Meyer in his first year took basically the same OSU team that was in disarray, 6-7, last year with glaring deficiencies and finished 12-0 while Hoke in his second year is moving backward? The answer is simple Meyer is an elite coach. Hoke is a mediocre coach. scUM will probably cut Hoke more slack than they did Dick Rod, but with Urban's help I think they'll show him the door in three years at the most unless they are willing to accept 8-4 seasons with losses to Ohio State.
BTW. Some think he disrespected Urban Meyer by not shaking his hand when the game was over. I don't know if it's true, but I have my own theory. Hoke was frostbitten from the elbows down because of his moronic attempt to show off his fat rolls...er... toughness. That is why he didn't shake hands with urban. He couldn't feel his hands until he was in the losers locker room and one of the assistant coaches shoved a warm Triple Whopper between his pudgy Twinkie stained fingers.
Patrick : "What do you think about the Ohio State hire?" Hoke: "Not...not good"
Yeah i remember people saying the same thing about Brian kelly after his few years at ND. This is not the time to get cocky the guy has only been there for 2 years he is 1-1 in the game. Lets all feel good about our self's going 12-0 in a year where we had 8 homes games played no one and beat Michigan by 6 points in the shoe while they played 6 away games 4 against the number 1,2,4 and 14 teams in the country yeah he sucks wow. Fans now a days.
Just because you have a man crush on Hoke doesn't mean we have to like him, he's a .500 coach at best and should have had 2 extra losses if it wasn't for lucky catches against MSU and Northwestern. It's just a matter of time before they find him dead with Twinkies hanging out of his mouth and big macs clinched in both hands.
lol You know how stupid you sound like . They should have lost 2 extra games boohoo Uhh hello have u been watching Ohio state this year how many close games were we in? we went to 2 OT games this year and almost lost to cail and indy ouch but hey that doesn't count right. By the way your the one who sounds like u have a crush on the guy talking about him 24/7 dam who gives a fuck how another guy looks but hey I understand some guys like checking other guys out.
God i cant stand internet bad asses. Pathetic
Nice im a internet bad ass lol thank you
Comparing Hoke to Kelly or Hoke to Meyer is absurd.
Meyer: 116–23 Lifetime (.828) Meyer-48 years old, and has had unreal excellence at every stop. Meyer took the route from MAC to MWC to B1G. Urban stopped in the SEC and won 2 NC's. He has had two undefeated seasons. He was voted coach of the decade by SI and The Sporting News in 2009. Meyer is an elite coach by any measure.
Kelly: 198–66–2 Lifetime (.670) Brian Kelly-51 years old, on his way to his first national championship game and has 2 undefeated regular seasons in his last 4 years. By any standard Kelly is a very good upper echelon coach
Hoke: 66–55 Lifetime (.540) Brady Hoke-54 years old. He went the same route as Meyer from MAC to MWC to B1G. Hoke was lauded for 2nd and 3rd place finishes, and he still is at *ichigan. He is at his ceiling. His 8-4 record this year was disappointing compared to what was expected of him, but it is actually better than his average record. Hoke has had a decent career, but quite average.
Hoke may be a "Michelin Man" but he wasn't even their first or second choice for the job. Hoke may beat OSU and ND once in a while, but year in and year out Meyer and Kelly are going to eat him alive. Particularly Meyer. And what conference championship has he ever won? One would think that *ichigans expectations are for wins over tOSU, B1G championships, and NC's. Hoke is not a coach that can or will get it done.
Ohio State is about kick into high gear and turn on the afterburner with Meyer, ND apparently has kicked it up a notch with Kelly. Hoke is what he is, and he is not going to suddenly jump a couple of ranks and become an elite coach. A few more losses to OSU, a few more losses to ND, a few more second and third place finishes, he'll be gone. Just as was Llllllloyd Carr.

Wait until his talented OL classes get there and no skilled position players! Maybe he will convert some OL to RB or Reciever?
I'm guessing JT#1 might be a "chubby" fella....he sure bowed up to defend talking about Hoke's weight....
That would make him a gravy chugging lard eating fat fuck!!
No its not absurd at all the difference is unlike Kelly or Meyer Hoke took over 2 of the worse programs in college football at the time in Ball State and San Diego State he took a lot of losses early on at Ball State before he turned it around its why his lifetime record is not as good and if anyone knows Ball State its a really hard place to win and Hoke did win there and at the time he also had to fight off the AD and the President who wanted him to do things their way that's hard for any coach to deal with. So im not saying Hoke is better then Meyer he is NOT or of kelly but what I am saying is people don't know the whole story with the guy they see the wins and losses and say Ooh the guy sucks. I think what he has done at Michigan so far is pretty good with what he was left with. What will happen down the road we will see but that's not a reason to call him a bad coach.
When you are in a hole, time to quit digging.
Is it really hard to get wins at Ball State?? Ball State football team runs down its ninth win, Pete Lembo's only been a coach since December 19, 2010 and he already has a 9 win season and he came from Lehigh. When Hoke was there he had 'insert name here of star player" I can't remember his name but the guys was the best player in the MAC, until he came Hoke's Ball State team won only 10 games in his first three seasons as head coach. You paint this picture that Hoke is some savior of Michigan football, any team with a runner like Denard can win football games, lets see what he does without him.

Boy, you said it.
What you told me was don't get cocky. Hoke is 1-1 against us. This is true. He beat our worst team in 114 years that waa starting a freshman QB a last year at the Pig House. And we came within an ace of winning. You also told me that we had 8 home games and played no one. But many of those same teams beat us last year.
Our situation this year is pretty damn similar to what Hoke and scUM had last year. Hoke lost 2 games his first year and had a very nice 10-2 record. Meyer was perfect under similar circumstances. And a perfect record under any set of conditions is rare. What was the major difference? Meyer is aan elite coach, Hokr is a decent mediocre coach.
Hoke lost to teams that were 1,2,4, and 14. The teams that he did beat had losing records. As far as I've ever known an elite coach or an elit school's success is not measured by who they lost to. It's who they beat.
*ichigan would have rather had Harbaugh or Miles. They didn't want the job and late in day they were forced to take their distant third choice, Hoke.
Have an impartial person to pick one of the following men to head up their elite football program: Hoke, Harbaugh, Kelly, or Meyer, I guarantee you Hoke comes in dead last 99.9 times out of 100.
As I said before, In three years Hoke will be gone or *ichigan will come to accept mediocre records, losses to OSU, and the likes of ND, and second or third place finishes.
I just fine it funny that you guys wanna hear everyone say the guy is the worse coach to ever coach football you get a kick out of that its weird whats the point? You get upset because im making a case that the guy will be ok at Michigan and everyone on here is like NO HE WONT TAKE IT BACK ..Its like wow chill we won the game enjoy it no one knows what will happen in the future so why fight about it.
Hoke was an accidental scUM coach. . . He was driving through Ann Arbor and mistook the Michigan "M" logo for the Golden Arches and got hired.
We need him to be good enough to stay up there but just bad enough to lose to us every year. I hope your three year prediction is dead wrong.
They also lost to Nebraska and Ohio State. Michigan played two good teams in OSU and Nebraska plus ND and one great team in Alabama. Mathison is a very good defensive coordinator and Devin Gardner is not that bad of a QB considering he only played three games. Hoke is a decent coach but he's no Fielding Yost or Bo Schembechler. I think Meyer will dominant this series and once Urban gets his recruits into the mix. Watch out SEC and college football. Things OSU needs to improve for next season are the following:
Ohio State needs to learn how to defend versus spread teams and different types of screen passes next season.
Safeties and linebackers need an overhaul.
OSU receivers need an upgrade and for Christ's sake throw to a tight end more than once in games.
This conference is Ohio State's taking for a very long time. No team will be able to compete with OSU in the Leaders division. Illinois, PSU, Purdue, Indiana and Wisconsin there is no chance in hell. Ohio There are only two teams that stand in Ohio State's way right now in the B1G and they are UM and Nebraska.
