Amazing how the tune has changed at the Freep. Good article by Jamie Samuelson
Hoke-A-Mania!!!! He's "Dominating"
on how long till we get a maize and blue tear-a-way "Hokeamania" shirt and matching bandana in the MGoStore??
From the tone of things on the main page, I'd guess it'll be awhile before we see that type of eeeeeeeeeeeeee Hoke! enthusiasm.....
True, but MGoCapitalism cannot be stopped--it's just a matter of time. Also, to paraphrase Michael Jordan: "Hoke fans buy shoes too."
it is very nice and fluffy in that article
Hey buddy, it's been a while! Are you still glowing about the way that whole Lizzy Seeberg thing blew right past Our Lady?
Nah just glowing about the best front 7 recruiting class in the country =)
I'm a big fan of the Obama-esque, "Hoke".
I sure hope not. Let's hope this isn't another 'had me at the press conference, ended up being a colossal fucking disappointment that shredded all remaining optimism' type of hire like we had in 2008. Michigan's all I got left.
Let's get these babies in the MGoStore...they need some new inventory.
Audacity of Hoke.
I hope that audacity doesn't stretch to calling a draw play on third and 9.
As long as it's a dilithium-powered quarterback draw.
And well done. You may keep your fingers for another thread!
When's the "I Am A Real Michigan Man" song getting released?
Out of respect to our former coach, I'm going to continue ignoring the freep, unless it involves another humiliation of one Drew Sharp (or any of his loyal band of misfits).
... What the Freep did to RichRod, they did to all of of us. Let's not so easily forget. The paper is a joke, and any fluff pieces they do on Hoke only futher evinces the true nature of the malcontents at the Freep.
Do, not did. They continue to take their shots at RR.I don't know how to block quote, but here was a nice jab at RR in the Hoke article.
"Contrast that with Rodriguez’s treatment of Ryan Mallett three years ago. He didn’t literally drive Mallett to the Ann Arbor border and kick him out of a moving SUV, but it was close."
The guy is gone now, and they (the FREEP) had a hand in it. Call off the hounds already.
Fucking amazing. A complete fabrication. By the accounts of everyone involved -- Coach Rodriguez, Coach Carr, Ryan Mallett, teammates -- what Jamie Samuelsen wrote was a total lie. A defamation of Rich Rodriguez. I suppose that the Freep defense might be, "He's not really one of our writers. He's a radio guy who occasionally blogs for us. Don't blame us. We don't edit his crap." That's the best case scenario for the Freep, with respect to Jamie Samuelsen.
The freep represents everything bad about the media in general, and the decaying world of newspapers in specific. This is nothing new but NEVER FORGET.
Fox 2 and WDFN don't know who should discipline him for his "RichRod -- he gone" 20 hours before it actually happened? I'm cool with the coaching change, but I would have loved to see him retained to see Armani crawl his way out of that hole.
Along with the fact that their writing is just overall shitty, and Drew Sharp apparently is still trying to keep the Blue down. I was so happy to see Hoke's raction to Sharp's crappy question.
Yes, I too witnessed the Hoke beat down of Drew Douche Sharp at the presser, something about multiple Big Ten rings and a nat'l champ ring, good response...
I'm not going to read that rag out of respect for journalism standards, honesty and the University of Michigan. I'm not interested in reading or debating anything about Rodriguez's stay at Michigan unless I'm going to learn something important or at least make me reconsider something. That would semingly preclude all newspaper columns.
Sorry if someone has brought this up, but the band played it at the BBall game last night...there was a poll on detnews.com asking if it should be played at the Big House. My first thought: Oh God, please no! But then I got chills thinking about 110,000 people doing the hokey-pokey in the 4th quarter, with the scoreboard reading Michigan: 35, Ohio State: 7.
Yes on the scoreboard reading UM 35, OSU 7.
No on the Hokey Pokey.
It's better than 110,000 people trying to do the Chicken Dance.........
But what about 109,901 doing the Chicken Dance?
No on the mass hokey pokey, but I like the scoreboard part.
Might be tough...
e.g. Hang on Sloopy
FUCK THAT FUCKING SONG
This is all the more reason that the Hokey Pokey must never, never become a fixture at Michigan Stadium. The Hokey Pokey would be like the HIV to the claw's chlamydia.
Three Chord Jam! Unfortunately that's two higher then most tSIO graduates can count.
I doubt that very much. Rosenberg did what he did because he's a Lloyddite. He got what he wanted and will go back to writing as if nothing ever happened.
I wish Hogan had stayed with "Eye of the Tiger," but you can't go wrong with Rick Derringer doing your theme song.
Okay, in case anyone cares, I hereby declare that I am officially on the Hoke bandwagon. Not because of the article (I will never read a Freep article again because, well, F--- the Freep). I just realized that my MGoMourning period is now over and I'm officially "all in."
Let's Go Blue!
RR coined it and it doesn't belong here anymore. RR was treated like crap here and that phrase needs to be let go since it's obvious that not everyone was All in for Michigan. I will still expect the same 9-3 record for next season though since by former Lloyd players accounts we have got the greatest coach since sliced Lloyd, oops meant bread. A monster recruiter who surely must not have a Michigan phone yet since Jack Tabb never got a return call.
now that he will win the presidency in 2012! Hoke for Prethident!
Ith that you?
"All in' was OK, but definitely implied a sense of painful obligation...looking for something more uplifting.
"If you're not a Michigan fan, then fuck you."
