During an interview with Denard it list him as a senior...opps, I'll allow it though.
Inside Michigan Football (post Ohio)
Watching anything about the Ohio game still hasn't gotten old at all. I've watched parts of the BTN replay several times already.
If Ohio does half as well with their new coach as Michigan has done with Brady Hoke, then Ohio will have done very well.
How can you not bust with pride when you listen to Brady and the Michigan players.
I miss the old Michigan Replay format, where they'd go over the highlights of the game. This is OK but not the same.
Yeah... at least Brian slakes our thirst for the old Michigan Replay music in his podcasts
Never underestimate the value of a good "coach's wife"
On the TD pass to Tay, Omameh had enough time and space to bend down and tie his shoe. OSU sold out on max pass D yet still got torched.
Speaking of that TD, it was a great job catching the ball in traffic, but it was great awareness to turn and find the end zone.
The free-flow camera action is a little nauseating. It felt a little NYDP Blue-ish.
The Block M on Doug's mic seems to be out of proportion. The "legs" seem a little too long. Don't we have some sort of copyright on the exact dimensions of the M?
And you took away from it what I did. We have a great first lady of Michigan football. She's way too good for him. As all great wives are.
What the F happened to Van Bergen's face? Check it out during the interviews with pads on with him and Heinninger. wicked bruise
I think he puts a lot of face black under his eyes. The sweat (and postgame tears of joy) makes most of it disappear.
Even though this is the last episode, I still can't get over how awesome the shows set up in the stadium looks.
It is so great to see how happy these guys are. I think having this group of seniors made this season the way it was.
I know JB Fitzgerald hasn't produced much on the field, but after seeing his reaction, I'm really happy that he stuck around. He seems like great guy along with everyone else on the team.
Thanks for posting these all season!
My favorite group of all time! Well, since I started following in 1978 anyways. True blue winners!
I don't get it - if it's wrong to focus on the seven year winning streak Ohio had over UM, why did Hoke put up his clock with the number of days? I've heard Hoke and some of the players say this, but then why the clocks?
Could someone explain this to me?
Brady was focused on the The Game, and isn't interested in comparing this team, that finally won The Game, to the previous seven teams that came away empty. He didn't want to disrespect the earlier teams as he acknowledged the effort they certainly put into it. The countdown clock was about this year's game and this year's game only. Make sense?
but the clock wasn't a countdown until the next game, it was a "count-up" clock since the last time we beat Ohio. So politely, I disagree with you. But according to what he said, I think it would make a lot of sense if it were a yearly count-down clock.
Laura Hoke rocks! Uncle Brady rocks! I had never heard an interview with her before - I love her, what a great couple Brady/Laura make. Makes it really look and feel like a family atmosphere. Good for UM, our players and the program. Little things like this do matter.
watch at minute 19:00 to get the Laura Hoke interview. She'll keep Hoke grounded and happy. Big plus.
Brandstatter: "From spring football to the victory over Ohio, what was the biggest improvement of this football team?"
Hoke: "They like each other."
Uhhhhhh, I guess Brady misheard the question
But I don't think he misheard at all. He's saying that the team came together, and got tight, working for each other, rather than individuals. That seems like "duh" for a football team, but it's not. It's one of the most important things to a team he's acknowledging, but it's often hidden to the public. People see talent, injuries, coaching actions, but never know what can sink (or raise) a team is in team leadership. Players working for themselves rather than the team can derail the most talented team. Teams that stick together and love each other achieve and over-achieve. This isn't created in a day. It's through winter, spring, and the fall. Who has the players ears, and who they listen to can determine how well a team does almost as much as talent.
Is it just me or did Hoke kiss Woolfolk?
Great to see all the behind the scenes celebrations. Started getting a bit dusty.
Hey, do you think you could get one of the replays of the ACC championship game into a torrent? I could just DVR it, but I might want to do a diary breaking down the game and I can't do screen caps or anything that way.
...for posting that episode. Living in FL I don't get very many opportunities to see IMF. So, much thanks from down here in Dixie.
