and... i like them? I think I like them.
Just a point of discussion I was wondering about...
What does everybody think Hoke will/should do with the new slogans and signs that were put up during the Rich Rodriguez era? Will "Hard Edge" stay? What about "Hold the Rope?" I think Barwis had another one put up, too, but I can't remember or find a reference to it. Will Hoke keep them, or go his own way?
I'm supporting Hoke but dude

Desmond seems to be in Ann Arbor tonight and he seems impressed with Coach Hoke:
May have taken longer than some expected but I believe @DaveBrandonAD got the right man. After speaking w/Coach Hoke, I wanted 2 play 4 him.
He also visited with his "twin" as he said:
So yeah, good to see.
Next to abysmal defense, the next worst area of performance for Michigan football teams has come from Special Teams. This is not just a recent phenomenon; special teams debacles have haunted Michigan for years. Will Brady Hoke change this tradition?

This seems to be lot like the Brady Hoke resume - a couple of good years among a sea of mediocrity (or worse). Hopefully, there will be more of an emphasis on special teams, but then again, hope is not a strategy.
