"You can't make me," Hoke said. "You're not my father."
It was brought to my attention in the ''Don't overlook the cradle of coaches thread'' that Tressel was actually an assistant under Earle Bruce which I did not realize.
So, since that is true and since Urban was also on Earle's staff, is there such thing as an Ohio State man?
Look how Cooper was received in Columbus. He was sort of accepted becasue he could recruit better than they had in a long time and was doing better than Earle had, but blew the Michigan game every year. He referred to the Michigan game as just another game like a certain someone did here and that did not go over well.
My uncle moved down there a few years into the Cooper era (what a great time for him then, what a shitty 10 years it has been for him since) and he has said that they never really fully accepted him down there. He was from Tennessee and had played at Iowa State and had no connections to the state of Ohio.
This article on 11 warriors also seems to say the same thing:
So is it a real thing that certain places have to hire coaches with connections? Maybe it's not just a thing here.
Some may not want to read this. I find it to provide a good dose of absurdist levity given the state of things. I need to laugh hysterically right about now.
OK, so who the hell is this guy?
Indeed 46 years later, "Beau Who?" might be once again an appropriate headline for the 2015 head football coach of the University of Michigan. At least I think so.
I submit to you that any new head football coach search for Michigan must include youth, energy and proven record of success. Beau Baldwin is one of the most successful college football coaches in the country right now.

“The idea is to tempo people and to get on people and to stay on people. But the whole philosophy of that no-huddle is to keep the defense off balance. And from there it’s nice to be able to spread people out and that’s always been my philosophy,” he added. “But you have to be balanced. You have to have the threat of both and I think that goes for any sport. To be a championship-caliber offense, you have to be balanced.”

Those who have watched the coach say he always seems so confident, so calm and so sure Eastern will slay any Goliath who gets in its way. Despite their No. 4 ranking in the FCS poll, that’s really what the Eagles were that evening in Corvallis, Ore. — a David with a coach named Beau Baldwin who calmly stalks sidelines with a disguised fearlessness he infuses into every coach and player he surrounds himself with.
“I think they just buy into that mindset, that attitude,” Baldwin said. “You have to live it, that’s what I’ll say. It’s one thing to say it in a team meeting, but as long as they see that you truly believe it then there’s no reason not to believe it. That’s when great things happen.”
Added Mario Brown, a fifth-year running back Baldwin recruited from Oakland, Calif., “It definitely carries over to the team. We’re a representation of who he is.”

Need some levity around here in the doom and gloom. So here is Mike Leach telling us how the world will end. You know its some sort of dark time when learning how the world will end is an upgrade to current conditions.
TL;DR people will be so busy looking at their technology they will forget to be horndogs. It will have nothing to do with hookers or closets.
Per his personal twitter: https://twitter.com/DarianRoseboro/status/516741265090568192 . He has a private account, so you cannot see it unless you follow him.
i think we need a statement regarding that statement. i'm sure Brandon's athletic department is up to the task.
