Bring on A World Held Hostage: Day Three Point Two!
I can see Stanford going out and signing Hoke.
There are a couple of top schools hot for Hoke, including Michigan, after his impressive job of turning around the SDSU football program.
Hoke would be able to do a lot with the Stanford football program, considering that he runs a pro-style offense and uses his running game much like Stanford does. His mentality is a fit, and there would have to be minimal turnover in terms of staff or style of play.
The only problem is, again, that Michigan may have him on the hook already.
Did the 49ers satisfy the Rooney Rule?
They interviewed offensive coordinator Hue Jackson during the period of time when it looked like Harbaugh would be taking one of the other 477 jobs availble to him.
Could Brady Hoke be our Jim Tressel? After reading the Mathlete's great diary, it seems hard to argue with his success. He's not a hare; he's a tortoise -- slow and steady. Tressel had great success at then 1-AA Youngstown State but many in Buckeyeland thought he was 'beneath' the OSU job. His only 'crimes' were coaching at YSU and wanting to be the OSU coach (OK, insert jokes about YSU violations here).
So, Brady Hoke has success at two smaller programs -- not the championship success that Tressel had, of course, but in the FBS -- and wants to coach Michigan. Would he be so bad?
And by the way, yes, I've been drinking, and I now have Hoke goggles.
47-50 is not four national titles.
But it's a bit easier to be a big fish in a small pond in 1-AA/FCS.
I'm not a Hoke lover, by any means. Just not a Hoke hater, especially after reading the Mathlete's diary. And by the way, Mathlete, congratulations on the impending arrivals! Way to do it with style, and my best wishes to Mrs. Mathlete. I'd post something on your diary, but I no can has iPhone.
Dude's won one MAC West title. That's a pretty small pond and he hasn't made a big splash.
that girl looked pretty good last night, too.
Why didn't I look into TCU for undergrad??? I'm dumber than I thought.
The pic would be the same except for the platter of cocaine on the table in front of them.
is referred to in hushed tones as the colored girl. I am not sure he will fit in at UM.
The more I read about Hoke and his love for Michigan, the more I want him.
If that's the qualification we're looking for, let's just fucking hire Brian and be done with it.
Brian already has about a million MGoBlog readers to help scout each opponent and analyze his team in extreme statistical detail. And make really witty comments. I'd be happy with that hire...
We need to save this response for all the "he's a michigan man!" / "he loves michigan, won't go anywhere else!" / "need someone who understands the history!" posts. Past history to this institution should be nowhere near the top criteria for hiring a coach. It can certainly factor in but should not be a deciding factor. I hear that Mike DeBord loves him some Michigan football and he was an actual coordinator (not a mere position coach) under the immortal Lloyd! Send the plane and a bag of cash and lets finish up this process!
Have you done your research on Brady Hoke?
He has more than the love for Michigan Football and wanting to be back in Ann Arbor. From 1995 - 2002 he was Michigan Defensive Coach, and in case you have forgotten or are maybe too young this would have been during a time when Michigan had a top defense and won the National Title.
Go into internet explorer and type is name, the online encyclopedia will give you his bio if you don't know what it is.
People still use IE?
"One good season"
Kind of undecided on Hoke
He's 47-50. Under 500 and you're advocating him for the Michigan job.
And thanks for the condescending attitude.
Not saying I'm a big Hoke supporter, but Gary Moeller was 6-24-3 at Illinois, and he worked out OK (minus the bender). And Bo never had a 12-1 season in his 6 years in the MAC. He was 9-1 one year but just 6-4 and 7-3 in the two years immediately preceding his Michigan hire. Like the stock market, past performance is not a guarantee of future results, particularly when those results came at bottom feeders.
Bill Lynch's Ball State team was 5-6,5-6 and 6-6 in his last 3 seasons. When Hoke took over it wasn't until his 5th year that they "improved" back to that level. Can we please stop trying to embrace Hoke....
He was titled Associate Head Coach several years here. I do think he'd do ok, and while I also tend to think he's slightly underqualified, it's his W/L record that scares me. I know he started from shit at both of his last stops, but man, I don't know.
I know that he is not popular here, but I would be very happy with Hoke.
Why, you ask? Oh, you didn't ask? Well I will tell you anyway.
First, Hoke is a defensive minded guy. He will make it a priority to recruit Big Ten sized linemen.
Second, Hoke is a great recruiter. Even Brian - hater of all things Hoke - would not dispute that.
Third, Hoke does love Michigan. Put that together with his recruiting abilities and I think that we very quickly start re-taking the state (and OSU) from our rivals. And, having worked in SDS, he probably has some good west coast ties.
Fourth, he is a tie to our better years. I know, not popular on this site. But, we have an incredibly rich tradition. We need to tie the steaming pile of wreckage that is our current program to that formerly great program. Otherwise we are just a steaming pile of garbage that used to be great.
Fifth - staff. I have no doubt that Hoke would bring in great asst. coaches. Louffler is now unemployed. Soup Campbell would likely return. These guys are great recruiters and even better coaches.
No, Hoke is not sexy - as a man or as a hire. But, he would be a great coach here. Remember when Lloyd wasn't an exciting hire - we won a NC, followed by several Rose Bowl appearances.
Could you point to proof of Hoke's recruiting prowess?
Also, Carr won with Moeller's talent, not his own. Carr utterly failed to do anything notable with some of the best talent in the country every year after the NC.
right now with what I have seen from the media, I will not believe it until I see Jim Harbaugh in front of a 49ers logo at a presser. "Sources" are not "sources" anymore, it just means that somebody has heard something from somebody. NFL live with the same claim, let me see him in 49ers hat (he put a 49ers hat on, and sexually assaulted co-eds for much of the 1980s - ba dum dum).
They've scheduled a press conference for 6:30 eastern. They've hired a coach and only one name has been linked to that job.
Hoke Kitty on the banner. I look at it and it's so ridiculous I've laughed more than once . . . right before I break down sobbing.
I hope the portion of the michigan fan base who wanted RR fired so JH could be our new coach, feel like idiots right now.
No matter what after the Gator Bowl.
there was a large contingent that would entertain RIch Rod being fired only IF Jim Harbaugh would be the next coach, because we felt Jim could unify the fan base and move us out of the dark ages.
Then, the losses, particularly the bowl loss exposing the much vaunted offense, and showing no defensive improvement pretty much sealed the deal. Rich would never really be able to lead at Michigan without some very solid reason to believe things would change. Brandon probably was pretty clear on what that meant (massive staff overhaul, and adapting schematically) and Rich was loyal to his staff.
DB dropped the ball big time. His timeline screwed everything up, including recruiting.
Convinced myself I could get behind Harbaugh, if RR got the boot. I will fully support whoever the next coach is, but damn the list of guys available that stir excitement is shrinking. I'm not sure what the best solution is to this problem, I just need something to root for goddamnit. Somebody tell me what to hope for.....
When the music stops where does he land??
I still hear music although espn is trying to turn off the sound.
great office video
the more I realize that what I really want is not this specific coach or that specific coach
what I really want is this
I want mid/late-november, cold-weather poundings of OSU...
I don't care who it is anymore, they bring us that and I will be glad to see them on the sidelines
this isn't the time or the place to discuss your sexual desires (...I want...cold weather poundings...)
I am sticking to my story that his wife wanted to stay there and she wouldn't move to the midwest. He, in my book, is officially whipped.
I feel the same way. I wanted RR to get a 4th year with a whole new defensive staff and if that wasn't the case then I wanted JH. I think our best option whether people like him or not is Brady Hoke. He is a "Michigan Man" and would love to coach here. I will be all in for whoever DB hires and I hope you will all do the same. We all know what happened last time our fanbase was divided over a coach.
How well will Hoke bring in the high level recurits? I think Jim, with all his star power, would have done great recuriting. Hoke... I am not so sure.
