Hoke did a radio interview today on some Colt's radio show. Can be found here if that link doesn't work, here's the round about way, just click on the 4.6.12 link. He's on at about 29 minutes into the program and is on about 10 minutes. The host seem to know his stuff, he does say he's a fan and was kind of fanboying Hoke (but interviewers tend to do that). At least he knew names of players and made somewhat amusing "Michigan tradition" comments and questions. There's the obligatory Will Campbell question, Taylor Lewan = leader question, true freshman impact question and tell us about how awesome it is to get that job. A lot of Hoke dropping players names, a few uses of the word "tremendous", the phrase "no question" and I imagine some finger pointing.
I read this earlier on another forum but didn't want to post anything until I found solid proof. It was confirmed by a friend at Michigan. Brady Hoke's father passed away yesterday. He was battling stage 4 lung cancer.
In January, I posted a Diary about the Appreciate + Reciprocate benefit dinner and silent auction featuring Coach Hoke, Coach Carr, Dhani Jones, and Mike Martin. The MGoBlog response was great, and I wanted to make sure that everyone has another chance to attend the event.
As a reminder, the dinner will be on March 28th, and be held in the Jack Roth Stadium Club. The event benefits the LSA Emergency Student Aid Fund which assists students in sudden and extreme financial need. To read more from the previous post, click HERE.
Tickets for the event will be on sale until this Thursday. Some limited tickets may be available after that date, but our group cannot guarantee them. “Regular Tickets” are $100 and Student Tickets are $50, with group rates available.
Visit umichappreciate.org for more information, to purchase tickets, or to make a donation to the cause. And thank you so much to the MGoBlog community for its support.
Yay for football.
