Warning: If anyone is still boycotting the Freep after the Jihad of 2009, do not click the following. It's a Snyder piece, although it's short and thus lacks room for much opinion.
For everyone else, the piece demonstrates Hoke's continued ability to prove himself a Jedi Master of all things coaching, including completely supporting the passion of a former SDSU player who didn't mince words in criticizing Hoke (EDIT: the link to the remarks themselves is included in the text of the piece).
“When you look at him as an offensive lineman, how he would finish and all those things. Kyle is passionate about his alma mater, which he should be. That doesn’t bother me one bit. He was passionate about the Aztecs when we were, and he’s still passionate. That doesn’t bother me.” It’s simply part of the excitement of college football. “That’s a guy who’s passionate about his school,” Hoke said.
Can the man do no wrong?*
*Half-serious: From where I stand, he's pretty much batting 1.000 so far.
