".....with liberty and justice for all."
"...when Hoke goes 5-1 against Ohio State..."
After a 5 year undefeated run the football world finally forces UM to move up and play in the NFL in 2016, thus resulting in the forfeiture of the remaining games on our collegiate schedule and Hoke's only blemish against Ohio State.
Actually, what with the new conference championship game, we could win 5 games against OSU in less than three full seasons. Unlikely, but we could.
When will our fan base start to value our record against Nebraska (it being more meaningful for conference play than OSU) than our current rivals?
I'm thinking it'll reach ND status in 3 years, Sparty status in 6, and OSU near status in 10.
I'm betting it reaches ND status THIS season.
I hope that statue comes out better then ND's Granny memorial.
the bronze spittle is a particularly interesting detail
I like the implied symbolism...regardless of whether it was ever meant to be implied, very fitting for a current reflection on our Program:

...the page has turned.
Loved the evolution of the banner. It was fun to watch. My favorite is when the MGoJet was added. I wonder if it was used as a decoy, per DB's comments. I will forever remember the registration number N929SR!
Nice to see, in the aftermath of the RR firing, how people are feeling love for BH. Now, he just has to win! Will always feel RR was not treated fairly by the majority of the press, while recognizing the defensive failure was his true demise. Why is BH's lack of polish celebrated while RR's was hated? Only because he's our kind from our area. Have always and will always hate the press. They act self-righteous while they have an agenda like anybody else who is trying to earn a dollar.
Can there be Hoke MGoShirts? Or even a N29SR one? Just a thought...
Focus for me is recruiting and filling out of coaching staff. DC hire will be HUGE. Looking forward to spring game to see what it all looks like just out of the box.
(No, I don't have anything to do with the company. But they're out there if you want to find them. Money to be made, if you don't mope...instead, go Hoke!)
The kitten shall be missed. He was quite insightful; especially with "Head asplode!"
That's the part that keeps me chuckling.
"This is Michigan for God's Sake." I put my Forcier shirt on today and was reminded of what could have been (bought it after the ND miracle).
Do you think DB is excited he is still on the banner? I bet he is. Although I wish that badass Championship M ring Hoke was wearing that day was in the picture...
If Hoke starts out 5-1 against OSU and statue might not be enough to make up for us doubting Hoke.
This banner is truly choice. Simple, yet elegant.
"I sense great vulnerability. A man-child crying out for love. An innocent orphan in the post-modern world."
"I see a parasite. A sexually depraved miscreant who is seeking only to gratify his basest and most immediate urges."
"His struggle is man's struggle. He lifts my spirit."
"He is a loathesome, offensive brute. Yet I can't look away."
"He transcends time and space."
"He sickens me."
"I love it."
Cool banner bro.
"Hoke springs eternal": new Levitra ad campaign slogan?
/ dick joke
don't have access to imageshack or whatever at work. It won't embed.
I don't want to see another kitten for the next five years, outside perhaps of game previews.
On a scale from 1-10, how annoying were those multiple posts begging/ordering you to change the banner over the past several days? If I was a betting man, I'd say it was up around an 8.5 . . .
I'm glad to finally see support from Brian for our new coach (Even if he does think that we will never compete for the big game with this guy). Go Blue!
It fits for now. Let's see how the season starts and go from there. I am so glad you have pushed aside (ok, so yourfaking it for now) your complete feelings of desperation and loss. Thanks for the effort and the explanation of chuckie.
Dig the banner, coach Hoke is the real deal. The guy is a straight up hard working coach that earns your respect quickly and doesn't mind taking the hard road to get where he wants to be.
Then Miles fell through and the only options were Brady Hoke and the ghost of John Gruden:
Good tune. The RATM cover was pretty rockin' too.
to paraphrase the app st chat rm, when there's nothing left to believe, believe in hoke
