Brady has been a "tough it out" short sleeves kind of guys since taking over Michigan. However on Saturday that is not a smart strategy. The forecast calls for below freezing temps and strong winds. Do what you gotta do coach.
Hoke's Attire Saturday
I anticipate bow tie, evening jacket and spats.
And a top hat....
Hey, thanks man. I really appreciate the support.
He will be wearing a maize tube. Book it.
A tube or a tube top? There is a very very big difference.
he will be emulating the wacky waving inflatable air-flailing tube men who have taken up residence in the student section
This sort of ass-hattery is not acceptable, newbie. Knock it off.
his start date is 11/3/13, so he is unlikely to be a newbie, IMO. he's more likely to either be: a) someone who got Bolivia'd or outright banned in the wake of the MSU game or b) a Sparty Troll.
But otherwise yes agree with your sentiment 100%
i hope that new people are joining all the time. really the only way for brian to make his business work.
If only there was a way we could self police these jackasses so they wouldn't fill up our boards with such ass hattery....
Enlighten me with this idea
I am a big believer in Darwin. If Hoke wears a short sleeve shirt on Saturday where the weather folks project a high of 27, Darwin will again be proven to be right on the mark. No bigee, if something happens to Hoke, rumor has it that Big Al will be taking over.
That's funny cuz I talked to Darwin and he doesn't believe in you.
Ummm...I don't think you understand how evolution works.
Shun the non-believer!
Fitzerald was in full Under Armour foul weather gear and Hoke was still in his short sleeve polo.
He will probably wear a long sleeve under his polo shirt.
Yeah he usually does the quarter sleeve thingy
and Mich earmuffs and was freezing my ass of in Evanston.
The "anti Hoke" in terms of sideline warmth was our very own Wayne Fontes. That dude HATED being chilly......
Yes, remember that well. Fontes always dressed for a buttwhipping in Green Bay. Still I love the guy. One of the best coaches in Lions' history.
that was inside the silverdome....
I OWN THAT!
And still wear the damn thing from time to time. It's got a little "Michigan" written across the middle of the back and lots of pockets.
I hate the stripes on the sleeves though.
That's pretty snazy. I like it.
But I find it snazzy. Probably the same thing.
Also, wear whatever you want, Brady. I don't care.
I do love the numerous "fashion" threads on this board. You men (mostly) are really into style! Alternate uniforms, what the coaches are wearing. And you get all worked up about it! I'm waiting for a thread on women's shoes. Any day now. Any day.
Some of us do. He is the face of the program. We just don't want him looking ridiculous. A Jacket in cold and/or wet weather in the standard coaching attire.
that comment sounds alot like what his mom might say ..... uh, he's a big boy - I think we should let him dress how he wants. Geez
Can someone just tell him that the sleeves of his undershirt should NOT exceed the length of the sleeves of his polo shirt. I am not sure how no one from the program has talked to him about getting undershirts that fit properly.
Well, Mr. GQ... I bet you don't think boxers should stick out from the bottom of your jorts either... We can't all afford fancy form fitting undergarments.
It is really is hard to watch him on the sideline. You are our $4M coach, please look professional. I really believe he chooses not to use a headset or wear proper attire out of defiance. Come on man!
Board = Dead
Welllllll... The headset doubles as earmuffs.
Why would he want to listen to Borges when he can rock out to Miley on his ipod?
its not like he didn't do this just 3 weeks ago vs Sparty, so he'll probably do something similar. I was surprised he didn't vs Northwestern but maybe he only does it if it's below 40 degrees?
Still looks ridiculous in my opinion. Put on a freaking jacket and a hat for crissakes.
It's become a joke for opposing fan bases. I get the no headset thing -- I don't agree with it but I get it. Dress for the elements.
Somebody started a thread about what a grown mans wearing, and I should have my nuts cut off for even clicking on it.
The thread title isn't informative enough.
Should be renamed "Polo Appreciation Thread"
Thinks about this crappy season.
Can't think of any better thread topics.
Any time that I try to wear dark blue and black my wife says that it doesn't work and I Look like a bruise, but isn't that the combo Hoke wears?
He wears dark blue and blue. Which is worse probably.
Can we also talk about how Hoke doesn't eat on game days?
It seems like a whole contrived faux toughness thing that he hopes will rub off on the players. Fleece is your friend, Brady.
Make sure it's not red!
He can wear whatever the heck he wants... is this cosmo??
I seem to remember Hoke wearing long sleeves during the spring game. He also had long sleeves on during the MSU game this year.
So...you're wondering if Hoke is going to bust out his alt-uniform for the game? I hope it involves stripes! And matte finishes! And maybe some chrome highlighting!
if he can handle the cold without a jacket I say more power to him ! I think it makes him look like a badass. I love it ! I did once go skieng naked to prove that the cold didnt bother me, so I guess we come from the same school of thaught.
I like that the "A" is almost literally as far away from the "O" on a keyboard as possible. This makes me think that their reversal is intentional, and that just makes me smile.
I have never heard an opposing fan say anything about only wearing a t shirt...what the does it matter what he wears? How is wearing only a t shirt ''not professional''?
There's nothing unprofessional about it but a wise man once told me that "internet gonna internet". Stop trying to understand their logic, just accept that not everyone on this blog is normal.
Hoke should NEVER wear blue pants unless he has a white polo (which he doesn't wear).
Just wear your blue polo with khakis coach!
Also, his undershirts are atrocious. Sometimes he's got a shirt under with a block M or adidas logo showing at his neck...sometimes his sleeves are coming out further than his polo.
He needs to tighten it up Brady. Look the part!
The blues don't even match! Now that I told you, it will drive you crazy. The pants are darker.
And the baggy white tee under the polo has never looked good ever.
Bill Bellicheck is arguably the best coach in the NFL and look how he dresses. Who cares how he dresses. He's there to coach a football team not make a fashion statement
He should go with a cut off sleeve hoodie and channel his inner bellicheck.
In 2011 he was tough, this year people think he's an oaf without a headset. Winning cures all and just remember the Coach we were so excited with at his opening press conference. It's a persona of toughness. Woody use to do it and it worked until it didn't and he was crazy and not winning.
Go Blue, Beat Iowa, almost Ohio Week!
Are we seriously discussing this?
Then let's have a thread about his failure to grow facial hair. I think a stache or a goatee shows real thoughness and should be required. Discuss.
You guys really care about this? And his preference not to wear a headset?
I'm 98% sure this is closely related to the lack of vagina in your life. It's the only thing I can think of. Get over it and yourselves.
I should have just waited for you to post this. Thread over.
I really don't care what he wears, but admittedly its been a while since me and the missus have gotten amorous. Surely that's why I even clicked on this thread. This vagina theory of yours seems valid an has me intrigued. Tell me more!
Well it's a pretty amateur theory and has not yet been scientifically proven but since you asked...
It's based on the idea that when a man lacks vagina in his life he begins to behave oddly (obsessing over another man's fashion choices/body temperature, etc). Vagina deprivation is a serious matter, after all. One can only hope that this problem doesn't destroy our beloved fanbase.
he can wear one of those M logo Carhartts
If Hoke put up the same record as Urban the past 2 years, people would be calling for him to wear a tank top Saturday. It is funny how when you lose people find all the little things.
I vote sweater vest.
Tress wore the vest because he had huge muscular arms and a tiny torso. Pretty handy little piece of clothing given the circumstances.
How about a nice white short sleeved shirt, a tie, and a baseball cap?
Well we don't really know what the weather will be like Saturday -- it's not like the weather is controlled by Al Borges.
This is how you properly frame this issue:
"For all I care Hoke can wear a pink tutu on the sidelines as long as we win."
