Assisting his old high school coach
Assisting his old high school coach
seems more likely.
He's a troll. He's said in the past that he is 15, but no one actually admits to that on the internet.
They wouldn't be women if they were 12. Also, not funny.
Note the comment of "unrelated". But yeah, apparently not as funny as I thought. From now on, I'll restrict myself to MGoBlog-approved cat pictures and questions regarding NCAA Football 2013 rosters.
Man, there is a disproportionately high amount of butthurt over people not appreciating your statutory rape joke. Deal with it.
Hey you better watch out. Saline has a reputation for being a rich place of whiners, but we all have a tendency to pretend we're all farmers, so we could kick your ass
If I could take that /s and shove it up your ass, I would
Has there ever been one post of yours that isn't negged to negdom?
it was a really stupid joke.
It's utterly fascinating that unlike most of us, you grew up (and are still growing up) in an age where the internet is and always has been just a part of your normal everyday life. There really hasn't been any time where you haven't had access to the internet. However, you lack the ability to socialize acceptably on this medium that you arguably should be much more comfortable with than any of us. Its analogous to someone of able body and mind raised in an english speaking area, with english speaking family and friends, who speaks the language just as poorly and fractured as an asian tourist in Las Vegas.
To put it bluntly, you do occasionally have moments of clarity and reason on here, but 9 out of every 10 of your posts make you seem like a socially inept kid with no filter and a horrible case of diarrhea of the mouth.
what you put on your book reports in school?
The same approach your mother apparently took when someone suggested she read a book about raising a kid who wasn't an obnoxious, irrelevant jerk.
But yeah, keep on trolling a sports blog, man. Definitely impresses the rest of your sophomore friends, I'm sure.
And to add to that, these Internet age kids have never feared the consequences of their words. They can say whatever they want to whomever they want from behind a keyboard without accountability.
Weak sauce, as my kids might say.
Dude, aren't you like 15? How 'bout you wait until you have that prestigious diploma from Shippensburg before you talk Sh*t?
Build those coaching trees...
Guy had the worst luck getting hurt before the draft Would've been a later in the draft pick but I think he would have been a steal for any team if he was healthy.
Because of his big injury like a month before the draft
That guy is an absolute joke. Just watching him getting beat on every play was uncomfortable.
I kind of thought he would have been a good pick-up for a team, and land on a practice squad for some insurance, but glad to see he's found a place to land.
Getting to the NFL and succeeding there really is a total crapshoot, much moreso than in any other sport. One wrong move in practice or in a game and your career could be over before it even started. By that same token, some low-round draft pick from a no-name school could become the next MVP.
And coaching is a great gig for a young guy. Live cheap, move your way up. Maybe get in at Eastern or something. By 30, he could be making some decent money somewhere.
I wish him the best. I think he will make a good coach, based on my Twitter stalking of him ;)
It's a huge bummer that injury pevented Koger from having a chance in the NFL, but he found a job that I'm sure will be rewarding both for him and for the kids he coaches. I wish him all the best.
Plus he's working in football. Best of luck to him.
Don't know much about Koger, but I think this would be a good fit for him. He seems like he's got a pretty active personality, so I think he'd be a great coach down the road.
Really hope it all works out for him. He got a bad deal on his injury right before the draft, but then again, there's no guarantee he would have made an NFL roster. No disrespect to him of course.
I think this is a great story really - it's not the NFL (and he is still young enough that he could go to camps and still make it anyway), but he's in football, and this could be the first step in a coaching career for all we know. Palka was a pretty good hire and I think to have a Michigan player of extremely recent vintage on the staff to help kids develop is definitely not a bad thing. Indeed, if he enjoys coaching, that's awesome too. Whichever path he chooses, I wish him the best - we were fortunate to have him at Michigan.
SHS for life!
Kevin Koger was one of Those Who Stayed. We were blessed to have him at U-M and the kids at Saline will be blessed to have him as a coach. I'm a Huron grad, but go Hornets.
ETA: some sage advice from (ironically) his twitter feed: "If you have to think about it don't tweet it"
That's awesome. Getting to work with young people, passing on your knowledge of something you know and love; we should all be so lucky.
(admitting that it's hard not to have a lot of favorites in these teams) and I think he'll make a great coach. Mature, wise, with a great sense of humor, and responsible for one of the most beautiful one-handed catches in memory. Whether or not he tries in another year or two for an NFL career when he's fully healed, I think he'll make a terrific coach. [Can I call that emphasis rather than redundancy?] Great news.
Who knows, maybe one day he will be coaching at Michigan along with Mike Hart.
Scott Loeffler, the new Off Coordinator at Auburn.
I wish his NFL dreams could have come true for him.
But as someone else said, working with young people is one of the most rewarding things a person can do. He gets to work with them and in a sport he loves. That's not a bad position at all.
I'm glad he landed somewhere so quickly and I hope he uses this spot as a stepping stone (or career if he'd like) toward doing whatever it is he wants to do in life.
Best of luck Kevin!
Former Saline Hornet myself and I was on the Saline middle school coaching staff last year, I have to say this is awesome.
I had a chance to meet Palka and he seems like a good fit. Very different from the previous regime and honestly I can see him taking Saline places with the right moves.
He has done quite a bit to hire in guys with college coaching or college playing experience so I think that will have a positive effect on the kids. Hiring in Koger is a great move. I don't know if he's getting paid enough to make a living (like some have mentioned on here), but the experience is second to none. I'm actually jealous of those players, to be coached by a former UofM player is quite a treat!
