Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
Hoping to spark some friendly conversation reflecting on the incredible comeback in 2003 at Minnesota. Chris Perry, Braylon Edwards, John Navarre and Marion Barber, this game was a classic.
Thanks to WolverineHistorian for the video. I remember myself capitulating to Minnesota (out loud) several times that afternoon...
I was looking at Minnesota's spring info a little bit (as well as their recruiting. Only 1 2014 guy so far, but he's a 4-star RB with a really nice highlight real. That's all we need is for Minny to go back to the school of no name guys with an RB that owns everyone). Anyhow, I came across this little gem through their twitter feed. Sometimes, it makes me regret that Michigan has such a huge fanbase that things like this are impossible.
Kill just screamed to bring all 200/300 fans at practice on to the field to put "pressure" on the FG unit. Classic twitter.com/NSandell/statu…— Nate Sandell (@NSandell) April 20, 2013
Minnesota has hired FIU's Richard Pitino, son of Louisville head coach Rick Pitino, as head of ther men's basketball program.
One more time:
It doesn't really surprise me that he stayed, but that's quite a long contract. VCU should remain fairly relevant as long as he's around. The search continues for Minny and UCLA.
I find this surprising and depressing.
We're gonna see a lot of bald heads on the Minnesota sideline tomorrow. Earlier this week their Coach Kill along with most if not all of the team shaved their heads for St. Baldrick's charity to honor their WR Connor Cosgrove who has leukemia. Members of the hockey & baseball teams, and even one from the women's volleyball squad also shaved their heads in the fundraiser.
Salute to Minnesota for doing this for charity. Hope they inflated their helmets properly, they're gonna be a lot looser on their heads now, it'd be a shame if anyone got a concussion after doing something cool like this.
