Didn't see this gem from Rothstein's story discussed yet, thought it was worth sharing:
Before one spring game with Carr, in which the winners of the game would eat steaks and the losers would have hamburgers and hot dogs, Hoke gave a pregame speech. He became so worked up he started rattling on about the steaks in front of his team in a Michigan meeting room.
"At the end of the speech he said, 'Men, we're going to be eating steaks,'" said former Michigan linebacker Mike Elston, now Notre Dame's defensive line coach. "Then he drank a whole bottle of A1 sauce."
I thoroughly enjoyed this piece and highly recommend it:
