I like Hoke, the man. I remember watching his presser on MGoBlue and when he said "It's Michigan for Christ's sake!" I was, like, YEAH! I went to Michigan, my dad went to Michigan and my daughter is about to graduate Michigan. My whole family bleeds blue. So we were psyched about the hire - finally a Michigan man!
But the truth is, he's not head coach material. Winning at Ball State and SDSU is NOT the same as winning in the Big Ten. We're recruiting all these "alleged" 4 and 5 stars, and this is how the O line plays? This is how the D plays? It pains me to say this, but Dantonio completely and thoroughly outcoached Hoke today. This is one of the most embarrassing losses I've ever sat through.
WHAT IS THIS LOVE AFFAIR HE HAS WITH TOUSSAINT?!!! Did he successfully pick up one blitz today? Did he ever carry the ball with a sense of purpose? Does he run a 4.9 40?!!
What a colossal waste of talent. Unimaginative and completely predictable play calling. Uninspired defense. At least our kickers made their FGs.
And I'm sorry but he looks like a total buffoon standing out there with a golf shirt on, no headset, out of touch with the 21st century. You don't see Urb, Saban, Dantonio even, walking around without a headset on. This isn't getting better anytime soon. This sucks.
