Lloyd may have seemed like a prick to the Media but was very giving to charities and to people on a personal level. My friends dad who was a big michigan fan was diagnosed with Lou Gherigs a few years after we graduated High School in 96. He was starting to get really sick so the family had a party for the dad knowing there wasn't much time left for him. There were some surprise guests that day. Into the house walked in Lloyd Carr and a handfull of Michigan players. Lloyd didn't have to do that. The dad wasn't an alumni or booster. There was no coverage of this or nothing to be gained. He did it out of the kidness of his heart. That made my friends dads day that day a little easier and life long fans of Lloyd Carr as a person.
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
