Hoke doesn't "get it."
Brady Hoke a "Michigan Man"? Where’s the baseball cap?
This is a huge deal!!!
Hats interfere with the pointing.
Didn't see the /s in your post so IDK what the hell you've been smoking. Look at the guy (Hoke). He probably has to have his hats custom made because his melon is so damn big. Not wearing a hat is probably the last worry on my mind for the program under his tenure.
Apparently you are looking at an 8 3/4 size lid. He should sell advertising space on it.
As long as Coach Hoke doesn't go with a Michigan version of this, I'm good.
I will buy one of these and wear it proudly if Brady Hoke wears it on the sidelines.
I mean, it's clearly a ridiculous hat for a grown man to wear unless he's on a boat or in the state of Florida. But I think it would be awesome if Hoke wore it for like an early-season, sunny, hot weather game, along with an M polo and some bermuda shorts. That would be classic. With adidias shoes.
didn't wear a hat
IT'S CLEARLY A SIGN WE'RE NEXT!
All aside, I would sort of like to see the baseball cap rockin' the sidelines. As said before, it really doesn't matter, but it'd be nice to see.
Showcasing amazing technique in pointing while wearing a hat. Well done.
He's pointing in two directions. You can't send mixed signals to your players.
No hat is better than a visor. Truth.
Brian Kelly agrees with you.
slow day in the office?
cap starting in 1959
1959-2010=51 years with the same hat.
Before him they wore suits.
1891-1958=67 years with neckties.
Then before that we didn't have coaches.
looks like the same hat Clint Eastwood wore in "Joe Kidd".
Who was the last coach not to wear a baseball cap? Just by google images it appears Oosterban wore a cap but with no block M. I couldn't find any sideline pictures with Crisler but I'm guessing it was him.
Edit: late post
I wasn't kidding. Lloyd often went sans chapeau in the 90s, especially in warm weather. This is a stupid thread.
I have it on good authoritah that Brady Hoke will be wearing a maize fedora during away games and a blue beret during home games.
Though, if you can't decide...
(There are no online pics of my Fedora with the Block M....sigh...)
He didn't wear any hats at Ball St. or SDSU because all he owns are Michigan hats. He will be sporting one this fall.
In this thread.
that I am happy. :)
You posted "Go Blue!" at the end of your post simply to get MGoPoints!
I wish I could boht neg and pos this. Neg for dragging out Michigan Man, pos for excellent satire.
You took a leave of absence from work to watch film of SD St and Ball St games?
We just came out of our worst three year run in history, with the most laughable defense in the country. we haven't won a BCS Bowl in almost a decade. And you'r worried about a hat?
Inside sources have indicated that Hoke will not be wearing a base ball cap, but rather, vicious dreads as a sign of team unity.
Brady Hoke should wear a Block M 59fifty. Backwards. With the stickers still on it. Like those guys in that frat on state street.
What is the "Glock M" you people keep talking about?
I hope by "frat," you mean BOX or some other congregation of geeds, because I don't know anyone in a fraternity who would be caught wearing a flat brimmed hat, let alone backwards, let alone in public.
definitely greek life bros trying to pull of backwards 59fiftys. With their greek letter emblazoned LAX pennies and boat shoes.
Seriously though, if you haven't seen a bunch of white dudes on campus wearing backwards 59fiftys i want to know where you hang out. North Campus doesn't count.
North Campus doesn't count.
Watch out--the performing arts mafia might have to track you down and execute you unpleasantly for that remark.
Here are the headwear selections of the coaches of the last 10 national champions: Chizik (no hat), Saban (no hat), Meyer (no hat), Miles (HAT!), Meyer (no hat), Brown (no hat), Carroll (no hat), Saban (no hat), Tressel (no hat), Coker (hat). I vote for no hat.
You're kidding right?
because he pulls lucky plays out of his hat and sucks at clock mgmt
Tip of the cap to you sir. Well done.
I'm thinking he'll break with all tradition and don the Michigan "onesie" with the legs cut off 2 inches above the knees. He will then don the Michigan skullcap/doo-rag players wear under their helmets, creating the new Michigan coaching game-day outfit for the next century. It will lead us to 75 national championships in 100 years.
Also, his penchant for shorts in any weather conditions made me think of this Onion article: http://www.theonion.com/articles/overweight-college-student-announces-pl...
This is the only photo I could find of Brady wearing ANY kind of baseball cap.
It's a Navy SEAL's cap. I actually didn't know wearing a block M cap was a tradition. I always thought it more of a preference.
He has obviously been saving his "virgin" head for the block M. I fully expect to see that on the sidelines along with 12 wins.
I vote we have the only coach in college football to wear the rastafarian hat.
