"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
Bucknuts posters...Hoke classless
Well they would be the authorities on the matter.
lol... he's so classless because he beat OSU wow.. OSU is a complete joke..
are giving credit where credit is due. if Urban does take the Ohio job (and assuming that the fix is in at the NCAA), we'll be looking at another ten year war. Good for the greatest rivalry in sport.
The one who made the thread seemed to want to start this huge Brady Hoke hating thread, but most didnt follow suit. It was a lot better than I thought especially after reading the tite of this thread
Don't you mean 3 year war considering Urban's "health problems"?
Have you ever been to Columbus?
I assume Urban has higher standards. I don't expect a recurrence of his health issues.
I guess I read their posts differently. It looked like a decent % were going with the "we gave them the game" and " their coach is fat " meme. I think you are giving them too much credit.
Atleast some posters pointed out that its no different then them calling us scUM or that team up north. But those fans seem to be very few and far between.
Technically it's not different from us being referred to as "Michigan" instead of "The University of Michigan". Just calling them "Ohio" is still a step above their petty name-calling.
I guess they're showing us what real Ohio class is about.
That's some impressive crossover action Morris has going with the hat (oversized and flat in an urban sort of way, rather than tight and curled, which would be more suburban).
I'm pretty sure that's a snapback. Nobody curls those kind of snapbacks.
It's probably the same guy who cavalierly dropped his hot dog wrappers on the ground after the game without even a thought. Probably because there aren't garbage cans every two feet.
Well, I'm wasted and i am currently making more sense than these shitbrains. Go blue. Beat Ohio.
That's "beat Ohio" in the past tense, correct?
after that it applies to next year.
who's an idiot. He calls Hoke classless then proceeds to call him things like "fat", "flounder", "slob", and "ass clown." The irony is pretty funny. The next couple comments I read through are fine. They're no worse than what we say on this blog.
One guy even said this: "He's not so bad. Good coach, great staff and a HUGE win. Urban will have his hands full in the future. This guy ain't mr nice guy Lloyd Carr."
A surprising amount even give credit to Hoke for winning today.
"We had to overthrow recievers all day and we were injured"
We gave you the ball twice inside our 35 (punt drop and the fumble), we gave you a free TD on the first series from blown coverage, and you still didnt win.
We put up 450 yards of offense on your D, and essentially had our way with them.
Dont forget, the only reason this "overthrown TD" would have had anyh impact was because they reversed a TD, and then called dual penalties on us.
Unbelieveable. Injuries happen, its why your team has depth charts.
This is exactly what went through my mind when i was reading their comments. They are just a bunch of children who only see what they want to see which to them meant blown officiating and freshman QB handing us a win...when in reality we both had calls that helped and hurt us, our offense won us a game today and our defense did what they had to do to win...all the other stuff is a push
...look in the mirror at their treatment of Fickell, and how they've allowed the media to treat Fickell for a grade A example of classlessness.
Fickell seems to be a decent guy and a loyal servant of Ohio thrown into a thankless situation who's done the best he can, and they've allowed him to be portrayed as a dead man walking for weeks now.
Personally, I think that is a repugnant way to treat one of your own who has done his best after suddenly being thrust into a high-pressure situation due to events largely beyond his control.
For shame, Ohio.
..and came to the same conclusion.
I think that the "Fuck Fickell" comment was just stupid. He walked into a 5-alarm blaze because his school needed him to. He's no doubt been through hell trying to keep everyone together while every douche with a media pass asks him what he thinks about Meyer taking his job. I agree that he's not a good head coach but he deserves some respect for keeping his sanity intact this season.
That the sanest poster on their postgame rant thread goes by the name of "poop" is a piece of irony I think I'll leave for another time.
is absolute genius. He's trying to help and they've wanted him out-the-door almost from day one.
I've never seen a bigger group of crybabies after a loss than the group that cheer for Ohio. They make excuses about everything, then when that river runs dry, they make the smallest little ant hill into Mt. Everest.
I mean honestly, they're really upset that Hoke calls them "Ohio"? scUM = class, Ohio = classless. Most delusional fans on the face of the earth.
Also: Jim Tressel and Woody Hayes.
I actually ended up watching the game with a Buckeye fan, and unfortunately know a couple. This is a completely indefensible position, and one I don't think is representative of any large portion of the fan base.....All that said, Go Blue!!!
Why are we even paying attention to what they're saying. Let's just sit back and enjoy the win while feasting on tears of unfathomable sadness!!!
Yes. Yes. Sweet tears.
didn't say too much in that op post other then thinking Urban would beat Michigan, not sure what the issue is. We won today and we have to prepare to win moving forward. Dunn is a great addition to a great start.
Also, our players are classless because they did what they do after the end of every practice. Isn't this the same school whose players ripped down OUR banner before the game?
I sat next to a (dare I say) reasonable bucknut fan during the game today and he said he actually prefers watching The Game in Ann Arbor vs Columbus because there are fewer obnoxious tsio fans to put up with. HA
At least they don't have gold pants to sell for tattoos. See, we did them a favor...
Some were blaming the refs! lol
Oh, boooooo hooooo.
Buckeyes calling another school's coach classless for calling them "Ohio" after Tressel's lies and Gene Smith's lack of contrition? After "That School Up North?" After "THE" Ohio State University? After calling themselves "Bucks" instead of "Buckeyes"?
"The" Ohio State University is one of my pet peeves. Both Miami (1809) and Ohio University (1804) were founded well before Ohio State (1870). Frankly, I think both schools have reason to be annoyed by the upstarts in Columbus.
I like how now they're suddenly calling the players classless. I'm sure if our players were acting classless they took lessons from the Tat 5.
I really think that meeting their team bus as it pulls in, unannounced and without warning, with police dogs to sniff them all for bomb-making material etc. was an incredibly classless thing to do. A player could have had a phobia about dogs, the dogs might have slipped their leash.... And generally it was a greasy way to get a cheap psychological advantage.
Oh, sorry. My mistake. That was the classy Saint Tressel. But calling Ohio State "Ohio" is of course much worse.
Did that really happen?
#1 Ohio State's Marching Band spells out "Ohio"
#2 Ohio State's fans chant O-H I-O -- never a state in there
#3 Many citizens of Ohio actually do call OSU - Ohio
Are we actually talking about Hoke referring to OSU as Ohio?
Mmmmm yes, your anguish sustains me.
If they don't want to be called "Ohio," why do none of their cheers, songs, or marching band formations ever contain the word "State" in them? It's always just "Ohio".
This is kind of a wonderful point. They're so obsessed with spelling it, and yet it's offensive.
let's be honest here, I would hate it if someone called me ohio.
It's the MMB's fault for not also showing them how to spell "State" back when.
I guess he tweeted saying he lost respect and the players were classless for the actions after the game.
Wow, I guess having your brother trash Michigan when he left wasn't classless?
