BEAT THAT SCHOOL IN OHIO!
He is the only undefeated coach in the history of the program.
Brady's Day 2 To-do List:
1) Talk to Denard
2) Re-talk to Denard
3) Tell Denard you have an open-door policy
4) Follow Denard around and let him know you are available if he has any questions or concerns
While Denard uses the restroom he could use that time to call recruits and put together a staff...
No, didn't you know that we only need Denard? Put him out there alone against the other team and we win every time. It was the other 10 that slowed him down last season.
he needs to be in that stall making Denard feel as comfortable and clean ap possible. maybe even take the time to talk about non-football related subjects like girls, the weather, politics, and the smell of used up dilitium.
And perhaps Hoke could help keep Denard's shoelaces from touching the dirty bathroom floor. It's probably the reason RR was fired: areas around toilets were mismanaged.
Maybe while he is in there convincing Denard to stay, he could add him to the list of thousands of players who he has 'touched' over the years.
He must ask Denard if he needs a spot first Haha.
3 to 4 days seems too long when signing day is so close. Bring in Soup, Lefty, Fred Jackson, Wheatley, Keep Singletary as recruiting coordinator, get Teryl Austin and Heater and lets go. No time to waste.
drob has to leave the stall door open?
My buddy went in there early this morning, 6 am, and talked to Brady about a video coordinator or GA position. Has been a HS school defensive coordinator. He told Brady he would get him coffee, wash jockstraps or sweep the floor just to be a part of this. Brady laughed and took his resume. Said the guy couldnt have been nicer and was shorter and svelter in person than on camera. Hopefully, he gets a job.
he is a real personality
I love the 2 second clip of denard showing off his arm to our new general Coach Hoke! Of many great things to come coach hoke just wait!
was it denard? didn't look like him, thought it was stokes messing around, but i could be wrong.
You can tell by the release.....
Hoke better have made sure he was only seeing a few kids work out at a time!!!
No it was deff denard himself... our dreaded wonder just seems to be sporting a different dread style. I also noticed this when he met brady hoke during lunch yesterday
Love that Denard was showcasing his abilities as a QB. The part when he was in the middle of the student section at the bball game was pretty cool too. He just seems like he has a personality that all types of people gravitate towards.
Mike Martin still looks like a freak of nature. Awesome.
There was obviously more than a little choreography there, but you'll have that. I think Hoke is off to a great start. The players seemed to react positively to him.
Ha -- tell that to RichRod. He was the victim of innumerable "intangibles."
- - -
I agree that they're only part of the game, but if Hoke can get the players and fans on his side he'll have an easier time. Do you think RichRod preferred having whiners like Kurt Wermers out there?
is an intangible.
The last 3 years have been rough, but I have a feeling we are gonna be in for some good times ahead. Now that your first day is done Coach go get some recruits back on board with Michigan!!!!
I don't know if RR was that bad with the media and the general public or if Brady has a really special personality. I haven't been this motivated watching someone ever. I can see how he walks in a recruits house and gets his whole family to worship Michigan.
to the team when he was introduced to them that "We haven't won anything - you don't have to clap." As much as he is being seen as the savior, it seems pretty clear that he is not letting it get to his head, and believing the PR hype.
EDIT: not unlike a certain QB on his team....
We are back to the future. Maybe Anthony will reconsider. He should buy Hoke over a walking skeleton.
This is horrible, I didn't see Lloyd Brady at all on that video... we are doomed
I saw him during the Kansas game -- his bowl cut mop flopping around in the student section.
Speaking of Lloyd Brady, we need to get him in the new banner. We also need a more upbeat pro Hoke banner.
That was a pretty cool shot at the end with the Maize Rage huddling around him. Looks like (many of) the students are embracing him already.
I agree...keep a camera on him 24/7
This guy is the kind of person you want to move mountains for. I know there's a ton of negativity on this board right now, but I can't help being caught up in this new direction for our team. I hope they let the public in the Spring Game. Anybody heard whether it will be open to the public?
So the plane does not crash into the GD mountain!!!
And this video is giving me something to smile about.
Maybe obvious, but that's a real good sign
his presence when he entered the room and when speaking. The guy is charismatic and definitely grabs your attention.
We're back to the old "win the Big 10!" thing. I guess that's a step up from "beat Mississippi State in the Gator Bowl!" but I remember thinking that the goal of a Big 10 championship was becoming provincial and antiquated starting around 10 years ago. Clearly that's a necessary first step to the National Championship, but I would like to hear the NC as a crucial goal on occasion too.
You have to win the Big Ten Championship to even have a shot at the NC. We were also just 7-6...
I like how he went into the student section and was mingling with the kids. Good stuff. Thanks for posting.
Can we get Michigan Replay back? And the theme song. Or just the theme song.
Other than the losing, the worst part of the last 3 years has been Inside Michigan Football. I hated that show. I can't even tell you why, might have had something to do with the losing.
I am demanding, but I am fair
