Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
What Carol Hutchins has done in softball is remarkable - a Northern school contending and occasionally dominating in a Southern/Western sport. Which got me to thinking: Who's on your Mt. Rushmore of Michigan Minor Sports Coaches?
I'll wait for WD to weigh in with the definitive list, but off the top of my head, I'll go with:
Matt Mann, Men’s Swimming (1925-54) - 13 National Championships
Jon Urbanchek, Men’s Swimming (1982-2004) - 13 Big Ten championships, 1 National Championship
Carol Hutchins, Softball (1985-present) - 16 Big Ten Championships, 1 National Championship
Bev Plocki, Women’s Gymnastics (1989-present) - 18 Big Ten Championships
If you haven't seen the show, I would recommend giving it a watch. If you did and decided it wasn't your cup of tea, then shame on you. Kidding of course, okay, not really.
Wanted to have an open discussion on favorite/least favorite characters, moments, storylines, Draper fling or anything else related to the show. Also wondered what some of your theories on how they'll end the show are.
Michigan Softball plays today at 3:30 EST on ----- vs. Pittsburgh.

My family and I will be there supporting the Maize and Blue, and if you're in the Lansing area, or just want to support, come to the two-day event so we can make it a home meet!
In a TSN interview mentioned by CBS Sports here (but that I can't seem to find) Babcock says he should have a decision by May 20. Babcock has reportedly met with Toronto and Buffalo so far, and is still with Holland in Prague watching the World Championships.
The decision date is going to be moved up, It'll be to you by [May] 20th, I'm going to know what I'm doing.
