Brian, how do you still have fingers after weeks like these?
Mike Lantry, 1972
Hoke interviewed w/ bonus. Davy Rothbart got a one-on-one interview with Brady Hoke in which the man revealed he tears up at Hall and Oates songs, which is obvious in retrospect. He's just a big ol' bear. Grantland did not understand the power of the twosie and had space constraints*, so here are a couple of leftover bits from Mr. Rothbart:
Davy/Grantland: You've seen the pictures on MGoBlog of Taylor Lewan riding a "twosie" bicycle, right? What do you think of that?
Coach Hoke: [Laughing] Hey, we're happy if we can keep [the players] off of motorcycles. I'd say a twosie is okay in my book.
Hoke's favorite movies: "Silence of the Lambs. And A Few Good Men. What a powerful movie."
Hoke's favorite book: "Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell. It's the story of the U.S. Navy SEAL Team 10. A book about brotherhood, skills, and accountability."
Hoke's favorite food: "Pizza. My wife’s homemade pizza. We top it with hamburger, pepperoni, and maybe some feta cheese with some pepperoncinis. Artichoke hearts sometimes, and sliced tomatoes. My wife's sauce is the best. We have pizza night every Thursday night during football season. This year will be our 33rd year doing it. Just me, my wife, and our daughter... and then I bring the leftovers in for the defensive line the next day."
*[I know, it's the internet, don't ask me.]
Come for the spelling, stay for the crotch explosions. Shutdown Fullback is M-Bama oriented and taking gratuitous shots at MSU:
I need someone to make a college football themed collectible card game.
OPPONENT: Taps three boosters, plays AARON BURBRIDGE
SELF: plays NCAA CLEARINGHOUSE interrupt, taps Burbridge for three turns
OPPONENT: Plays BULLCRAP ONLINE COURSES to untap Burbridge
SELF: taps two unofficial visits, plays JT FLOYD
…and so on.
Step your game up, block-MS-painters. You just got served:
Will this aggression stand, MS paint aficionados? Mmmm?
Epic Cato June. BHGP is still running down the top 25 Ferentz wins, and I knew this one was coming: their epic beatdown of #8 Michigan in 2002. I was at that game, and did not have real good time. (Are we still saying that?)
I mention it because Iowa has gifed the most Cato June thing of all time:
Okay, it's at least top five. #1 would have to be a GIF where June celebrates like Ray Lewis after someone else made a tackle 20 yards downfield.
And then he became a pro bowl linebacker. Football is weird.
Brian, how do you still have fingers after weeks like these?
The past few days of mgoblog have severely diminished my productivity. I just looked at the front page and there are four or five articles that I still need to catch up on. I think Brian must have waited all summer compiling this stuff just to hit us with an unending cascade of magical rainbow that makes my head esplode. Surely they can't keep it up at this pace.
It is unwise to question Brain.
Just all part of his master plan to TRY TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD!
Man, he totally needs wings on that noggin...
because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties . . .
You WANT me on that diag. You NEED me on that diag.
keeps seeing that I am on MGOBLOG and everytime he says, how is there something new to read today that you havent read before....I just laugh and say you are silly
I should know this, but which one is Cato June and what does he do that's notable there?
The Iowa RB just bulldozes over June like Tom Rathman in Tecmo Super Bowl.
Dare I say...A TREMENDOUS one!?!?
I have a feeling that not too many Iowa running backs will be doing that to ANYone for the foreseeable future.
dude who gets trucked right before the endzone
but he played free safety in 2002 and somehow became a linebacker in the NFL. That can't be very common.
"Yes that is Everett Golson playing a flaming piano in the mouth of a Lepredragon (flying over Ireland)"
Well, this is the Internet.
I expect to see this as the logo on the next Nortre Date Super-Tradition Classic Tech-Fit Jersey (TM).
reminding me of brad banks and pitbull. *takes sleeping pill
Hall and Oates are okay, coach. Just remember the Rule of Groban and keep 'em away from the Football Bust.
Okay? Just okay?!!! I can't go for that!
No can do.
The fact that Coach Hoke loves Hall and Oates takes him to another level in my book. GREATEST POP DUO EVER!!!!! OMGOMGOMG!!!!
Brady Hoke is one of the main reasons why I can review nearly every Hall and Oates song there is
makes him human
come true. Woo woo, wooo wooo.
Hoke's pizza preferences? Iowa-based self-loathing? Best UV in months!
The amount of MS Paint talent on the internet never ceases to amaze me.
... of a Pavement album cover. Good stuff.
I went to elementary school with Davy Rothbart. I'm glad he never became a Dave.
he got my email address, insisted for a while that he didn't need to write it down because he never forgot anything, used it to invite me to a party, and then very obviously had no idea who i was when i turned up. (to be fair, i was wearing a hat.)
A young Cato June took me and a few now lifetime friends to a football party during orientation. They charged us $5 for a cup. Rule number 1 is never charge for beer. Boom, frat boy'd.
It's nitrous balloons you charge for. Everyone knows that.
/1994-95 rent payments.
My friends who went to other schools are always completely baffled at the notion that I never once paid for a cup at a party at Michigan, and don't know anyone who ever did.
What goes around comes around, I guess. At some point, your house is the one covered in puke, urine, and red solo cups on Sunday morning, and you're even.
1008 Oakland. 13 kegs in a kiddy pool full of ice. That was my 2002 graduation party idea. Split between 10 of us. It was worth every dollar of my dad's that I spent.
Also check out Davey's incredible-looking high-school basketball documentary "Medora."
"Instead of having to guess what Mart Dantonio and Pat Narduzzi are going to call in terms of a coverage, the offense has an answer to each of the questions posed by the defense.*"
sauce is pretty good too
yes, i know
Need another post to upvote that one some more!
I went to the Utah game that was way 2 close 10-7 i think..and this crap Iowa game that year. I thought I was a jinx and didn't go to any more games untill RR's 2nd year. At the time I felt like that was the worst loss in UofM history...haha we were spoiled back then
Thinking back to how I felt walking out of that 2002 Iowa game, it's really funny to think about how that moment felt like that was bad as it could possibly ever get. Getting blown out on Homecoming, not being able to stop, well, anything, getting outplayed, losing by 26(!)...
How innocent those times were...
Not to mention it was raining during that entire game....
I think it was the worst home loss since the 60s, and it came the season after we got absolutely shellacked by Tennessee in the bowl game. There was a long stretch there in the 90s and early 00s where the team never lost by more than 10 (I think the ND game in '98 was 16; even the Donovan McNabb debacle was only 10), and that got completely blown up twice in a 9-game period. It was humbling.
Cowboy Classic unis in that game? Heavenfreakinsake.
"You've seen the pictures of Taylor Lewan on MGoBlog riding a 'twosie' bicycle, right?" ...
"Coach Hoke: [Laughing] Hey, we're happy if we can keep [the players] off motorcycles..."
Holy Shit! Brady Hoke sees us on MGoBlog! We're, like, cool!
Brian references a post by B&B which references the post by TOC which references the post by Heiko which references the conversation I had with Chris Norman. The internet circle is now complete.
"I feel terrible... my whole body is throwing up inside of me"
Makes perfect sense. This explains why they're so angry
Herve Leger Skirts affordable, Herve Leger Skirts and pictures are basically the same, the service is very good, very good seller.Herve Leger Skirts it is very comfortable to touch, color is very positive. With the same quality of pictures. Quality is also quite good, Herve Leger Skirts very beautiful. It's like Herve Leger Skirts, looks very relaxed, belongs to sweet style, also very elegant, like Herve Leger Skirts.
I had a waitress one time that looked just like Darrell Hall.
