I don't think Hoke cares if the opposing coach is a bitch, he will win and win the correct way.
Danny Hope = JHSNCAH
Maybe an extra point for JHSNCAH
He probably won't be around much longer anyway. They're 3-2 and looking at probably one more winnable game (and IU's coaching staff is much better than Purdue's, so it's likely they improve enough to win that one as well). Even at a best case 5-7, that still puts him at 17-24, and it's not like Purdue has been pleased with him up until now.
I'm suprised that they have 3 wins so far.
The rest of their schedule does not look promising for them, though:
With the way Ohio, Iowa, and Indiana have been playing, Purdue can still be bowl eligible.
Assuming Hope is extinguished in West Lafayette at the end of the season who do they hire? More importantly, who is available that has such a pronounced mustache as both Hope AND Tiller?
I forgot what happened in 09.
Rodriguez isn’t the one who alerted the Big Ten to the punch by one of Purdue’s players (in a game not against Michigan) that got the player suspended. It was actually someone in Purdue’s own athletic department. However, after the Michigan-Purdue game in 2009, Hope pulled the stunt where he grabbed RR’s hand and brought the player (Zach Reckman)over and said “I want to introduce you to the man who got you suspended.” After that stunt, RR had a quote that I found humorous, which he blurted out after he told Rita what happened: “Bullshit! I gotta get my ass beat by a junior high school, no-class asshole?” I think JHSNCAH should be Hope’s acronym from here on out.
Remember how after Illinois fired Mo, Bo used to take a special pleasure in grinding them into a fine powder? We need to start doing that to Purdue on a yearly basis.
That, and the fact that Mike White (who succeeded Moeller at UIUC) was a grade-A douchebag and ethically dubious in his recruiting practices.
As I understand it, Bo thought he was meting out divine retribution in bitchslapping the Illini.
Yes. Mike White still would have been a douchebag regardless. Although firing Mo added to the fire. The one and only time Illinois did beat Bo, he was very classy in his post game conference. But he also had some satisfaction knowing that it was only a matter of time before White's actions would put Illinois on probabtion.
My favorite part is at 8:20 in the first video, when Bo notes, "Gary Moeller put that play in." I also love that our 2-minute drill was entirely on the ground.
Crazy what a young Jim looked like.
I think it's pronounced "Junior Highsnatch"
I think it's pronouced ji-SIN-kə.
Danny Hope isn't significant enough to warrant a nickname.
but significant enough to warrant a few 4th quarter touchdowns in garbage time, I think.
in the Big Ten is Mark Dantonio. Hands down. I'd vote Meathead at Wisconsin second. Danny Hope is of no use or consequence whatsoever. The fact that a Michigan coach got riled up about Purdue at all says it all.
I mean, Bo got riled up about Illinois. When someone feels it's personal, it doesn't really matter who's doing the insulting.
Illinois also ran up the score one year, Bo never forgot that. Illinois was the only team Bo would do that to. The head coach was a jerk, can't remember his name...something White...
John Grisham wrote a book called Bleachers, back in the early high school days when I still read him. They had a "little brother" high school across town that ran up the score in their only victory against the protagonist's school, and the next year the "big brother" coach put up like 90 on them, passing and taking TO's all through the fourth quarter with starters in.
One of the filthiest Big Ten football coaches in a generation. A complete, total, scumbag.
Bo only lost to Illinois once, 16-6 in 1983.
Dantonio is a piece of garbage, but his status as the head coach of a rival earns him some grudging respect. Purdue is a school that should be an afterthought to us, so their coach needs to learn his place.
Wait, because MSU is a rival, I have to respect their coach? I don't think that works. I don't respect Brian Kelly; he's shown little to no concern for his players, whether it be in regards to safety or respect. I don't respect Dantonio; he's a smug, shallow person that seems more concerned about a game than molding individuals or discipline.
A person doesn't deserve respect because they coach football.
At least a little. He's beaten us the past 3 years. But you're right regarding Brian Kelly. Fuck him and his Skittle colored face.
Dantonio is a man of questionable character, so whether his team beat us or not, I have no respect for him. Just like I have no respect for Tressel. I only respected him when I thought he was an upstanding guy, not because he was beating us.
Tressel beat us six times in a row. That is not a criterion for judging respect.
I don't necessarily mean respect as a person or as a coach, I mean respect in terms of how much we focus our attention on him and his school. Purdue and its coaches have no business trying to get our attention moreso than any other middling B1G school.
even show respect to his student up on the video tower. Douchiest mcDouche Nozzle ever.
Is a stoopid meathead, but I kinda like the guy, remember last year at the big ten pre season thing and he showed up with a rose bowl hat or something ha lol
Danny Hope's nickname should be Danny Hope. That way when you use his nackname no one has to ask "Who's that?" They will instantly recognize him as.... just Danny Hope.
to everyone outside of the Big Ten he's "who's that?" This is regardless of whether or not we call him by a nickname or use his actual name. At least if we utilize JHSNCAH, we get to tell a story at his expense.
but sign me up anyway. I like it.
I see that some people don't remember the Danny Hope story. We were on to it from the beginning at MGoBlog:
The story led, one year later, to the greatest thread title in MGoBlog history, by Webbers Pimp:
"Danny Hope has to answer for Santino."
Here's hoping that the Purdue game this year (homecoming) will be a beatdown that exceeds the scoring fiesta we had with Minnesota. I'll have a special little hatred for Purdue as long as Danny Hope is coaching there.
JHSNCAH! Let's see if we can get those Google search results up!
Danny Hope is an insignificant asshole. Nothing more, nothing less.
which make him an absolute perfect match for Purdue! So what's the problem?
in the interest of brevity.
Danny Hope has no class, and pulverizing Purdue (a school i like! just not the coach) will be a welcome "sup son" to remind him and the rest of the Big Ten that a new sheriff is in town, and Michigan is NTBFW.
....in 2010 about how Purdue players are distinguished from other players in the Big Ten because they take REAL classes. In REAL majors.
Brian wrapped up the analysis nicely:
He said that, the comments were targeted at General Studies Majors. The next coach up was Pat Fitzgerald and he owned him with his first comment, "I am pretty sure General Studies degrees from Northwestern are worth something..."
He got crushed.
The easiest way to get revenge on Purdue is to continue our annual robbery of someone in their class.
Ideally, that would continue to be the only 4* in their class each year
lets just take the best player from their class every year... we'll call it asshole tax
That Michigan replay reminds me why AC is my favorite player...
Hopeless will cross the field to shake Brady Hoke's hand in the post-game ritual, realize that he is looking at someone who could squash him like a grape and grind the seeds into the ground, and suddenly turn into a great sportsman, with nothing but compliments for Hoke.
What's the "H" at the end for? Hope? Or superfluous?
because "asshole" is one word, not two.
OT - discussion above reminded me of this. Watching BTN last night, the panel of "experts" (yeah right) unanimously said Illinois is the second best team in the B1G. Ummm, that same IL team who just slipped past WMU and NW at home? We beat them both by much larger margins, and one was a night road game. BTN sucks more and more every day. I e-mailed them about last week's horrible announcers too.
