Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
During his mini-draft slide, Johnny Football apparently got bored waiting around the Green Room, and was talking to the Cleveland QB Coach. According to Coach Loggains:
“We’re sitting there and they keep showing Johnny on TV and Johnny and I are texting and he shoots me a text and he says, ‘I wish you guys would come get me. Hurry up and draft me because I want to be there. I want to wreck this league together.’ “When I got that text, I forwarded it to the owner and to the head coach [Mike Pettine]. I’m like ‘this guy wants to be here. He wants to be part of it.’ As soon as that happened, Mr. Haslam said, ‘pull the trigger. We’re trading up to go get this guy.”’
Is this the first time someone has been excited to go to Ohio?
Headline says it all. CBS has decided to put a single camera on Johnny Manziel for Saturday's game.
No matter where he is and no matter what part of the game it is, we will have a shot of it,” said Craig Silver, CBS’s coordinating producer of college football, told (Richard) Deitsch. “If he is anywhere in sight of that camera, we will catch it.”
The guy is not perfect, but this is absolutely ridiculous. I can't think of any other player in recent history receiving this much scrutiny.
Brady Hoke was on the Dan Patrick Show for about 10 minutes this morning. He talked Michigan-ND, Pizza Thursday, Clowney taking Smith's head off (I don't have any sound at work and haven't didn't listen to the broadcast so I am completely plagiarising here)...and of course Johnny Football. Cause why not.
The article above is mostly about what coach Hoke's answer to Dan Patrick's Johnny Football question, but it does have the video of the whole 10 min block where Brady is on. Anyway's here is my favorite quote of the article,
If Johnny Manziel's our quarterback, he'd probably be playing behind Devin Gardner.
Please embed the video in the comments if possible, since that's the only thing that matters.
That'd mean Greg Mattison & Co. vs. Johnny Manziel.
So I went over and looked and Johnny's stats and I was just thinking this kid....OH MY GOD!!!.....
