FWIW: Very classy of Hoke to thank Rodriguez and staff for their dedication to the school for three years.
Can't help but feel he's extremely nervous. Speaking a bit loudly, lots of "uh"
My thought is WTF Mgoblog, couldn't put up a live chat? I have to participate in a2.com's crappy live chat with Rothstein.
I traveled to 5 cities in 6 days, but I don't need to tell you that.
Directed at you, MGoBloggers!
I don't know what to think.
Edit: Love the emotion.
Or the offense in general?
HE DOESN'T HAVE AN INSIDE VOICE!
thanked RR and his crew.
I like that he's saying it's all about the team, not about him, about the foundation and character.
Character wins in life...
I don't know if it'll unite the fanbase, but it unites the two sides of this MGoBlogger's heart.
That sounds Bo-esque if you ask me.
He seems amped. I want to go out and play for him right now. I love this guy
Say what you will - he's getting me pumped - looks and sounds like he's going to run through a wall.
P.S. I am excited as I watch him speak.
seems very nervous, starting to calm down a bit now
but i like what he's saying
Clearly his dream job. I'm very happy for him!
I know I have crazy dreams when the last thing I remember is drinking Jaeger right out of the bottle...
So far, I like everything he has said. I cant speak for everyone, but this speech is getting me pretty excited...how many days, again?
Hear Barwis and Hoke yell at each other. The walls would collapse.
likey. This guy won't win public speaking awards, but he's clearly going to eat, drink, and poop Michigan. . . and do well by the kids. Let's get some great coordinators and go kill MSU, OSU, and ND on the field and in recruiting!
Wow I love this guy... I feel like hitting someone!
I can just picture him chewing out the defense.... No excuses!
As badly as it was handled and getting over the disappointment of yesterday, I am happy.
I'm starting to really like him.
The Team, The Team.
Stresses the michigan family as a closer
Seems like he really cares...and truely believes it is about family...
Or Tim, will we have a transcript once he's done?
Kind of Hoke-y, huh?
J/K. I hate when there are unfortunate turns of phrase.
I thought the same thing - but he is quite passionate.
This guy has a fuck-around quotient of zero. GO BLUE!
He's getting choked up.
He's starting to win me over.
I just want to stay bitter.
all I could think was "how cool would it be if Hoke would just say 'Yabba Dabba Dooo' and do the Fred Flintstone celebration and float in the air. I can't wait to see some Bam Bam from our D.
of weird things
"I'm Gonna Be Who We Are"
Players. Their families. Wow.
Go Blue! Welcome back Brady!
Someone better ask about Denard.
Forget that - he just mentioned him himself.
What'd he say?
Essentially, Denard is a special player and you need to mold your plays around the players you have.
That was the one thing I wanted and expected. I was satisfied after that but I think he's handling the rest of it really well.
Can't wait for next season.
In a nutshell...he is a great/exceptional player. They talked for 15 minutes today and will talk more in depth. As a coach, it is your job to use the talent on your team and work with them. Mold your offense to your talent, in the end its the best for the team and the indlvidual. Love It.
But I would run through a wall right now for this guy. September can't come soon enough!
DENAARRRDDD IISSSS SPECCCIIAAALLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
YES!!!! "Special guy in Denard!" ..... Whooooo!
Special guy in Denard...Spend more time together
latches on to ask the offense question
"We've got a special guy in Denard."
"When you have talented player it's your job as a coach to mold that into what's best for your football team."
So he's going to try to utilize Denard's talents. Hopefully Borges can learn a bit of the "Spread HD" from Penn State.
"We understand one thing: We have a special guy in Denard. He is a guy that can do an awful lot for your football program. I know he loves the University of Michigan......when you have talented players, its your job a as coach to mold that for whats best for your football team. And most of the time, when you do that, its whats best for the player."
or he would have just said "Denard is a quarterback and we're very excited." This is a big mistake and now I will not be able to sleep b/c of Denard Transfer watch.
I need to sleep
