In the massive swarm of coverage of this weekends football events (which must last us the better part of four months) did anyone hear anything that came out of the Friday night former players only meeting. Curious what Brady had to say to everyone.
Friday night former players event. What went on?
There was punch and pie as well as a winner take all Jenga battle. Also guessing Hoke said something about being accountable.
when you play jenga, manball style, the games don't last long, as all the first player does is knock the whole damn tower over. #MANBALL
..."There's no question."
Love Hoke, but definitely getting tired of this line.
A lot of questions seem to be swarming around the Michigan program, would you agree?
Yeah, Jim there's no question... there have been a lot of questions.
I listened to Inside Michigan Football Radio Show and Jim Brandstatter asked him more about food than football. Hoke actually had to ask him to keep it to football. Granted there has been a lovefest, Hoke is a fine shade of cardboard and the Fort is back - but if you want a good answer - you have to ask a good question.
Borges in contrast is very well spoken...yet he doesn't say much either. If Hoke keeps up the "There is no question..." response, maybe it will push the media to ask more exacting questions to begin with. You can't say "There is no question..." when a reporter asks "What is the most important take away from the Spring game? without saying what he thinks. (BTW the answer is Royce Jenkins-Stone.)
This coaches and the media are still finding their feet.
+1 for the CS reference
i think i might have played against you. what team were you on?
I heard he showed everybody the two countdown clocks and screamed "what time is it?" over and over again.
Anybody who answered 10:25pm had to immediately leave the room.
The players dug up Bo's grave and used his body to conduct an elaborate séance in which they encircled Hoke and tried to channel Bo's wisdom and personality into him. They were all wearing their graduation robes and old single barred football helmets with maize jerseys underneath.
Lloyd Carr led it and implored Bo to give Brady a "tremendous tenure" as Michigan's coach.
That, or they went to Blimpy's.
and ran the power
Watched highlights of the 1997 season like any self-respecting Early 21st Century Michigan fan would.
for helping runn RR out of town and allowing him to nearly triple his salary. Then he apologized for the boredom of the spring game some of them would sit through the next day. This was followed by the explanation- we haven't learned to run the power play yet so that is all we have worked on in practice.
They played some deep cuts from Groban's new album, passed around a giant doobie and talked about how RR really wasn't all that bad.
The rumor I heard is that everyone got out their iPad and had a double-elimination Fruit Ninja competition.
there are some gems in this thread, particularly the Bo seance one and the big doobie one.
